Sonnet 130 is written to express how different the Dark lady's attributes is from the era's ideal standard. Yet, the author finds her a rarity among the other idealized women. On the other hand, "Beauty in Ugly" by Jason Mraz, invokes the listener to understand that his intended recipient is ordinary and unremarkable. Yet, thee is beauty in ugly and she has other things to offer. Both works share a similarity in how they make an unremarked woman their focus, while at same time professing admiration for her.
This love feel I, that feel no love in this.” (1.1.174-176). The oxymoronic enumeration of Romeo’s citing is utilised to express and exaggerate his contradictory perspective of love, which further suggest to readers about Romeo’s love-sickness. As the sympathetic person Benvolio is, he advises Romeo to notice other girls, contrary of what Romeo expected. In this way, Benvolio shows
But this takes a turn as the “lady richly left... [with] wondrous virtues” does not seem to be happy. Infact she is "aweary" and melancholic, making the audience curious as to why. In the following scene the audience’s curiosity of Portia’s misery is quenched. The conversation between Nerissa and Portia gives the first glimpse of her power, or the lack of it. This is shown by her inability to make a life changing decision of picking her suitor.
The strong effects of love makes Helena a bit foolish and blind in the ways she reacts to it. In scene one of act one, the readers learn that Helena still loves Demetrius even though he loves her friend, Hermia, now. When Helena is first introduced, she demonstrates her jealousy and insecurities by asking Hermia for some of her beauty to win Demetrius back. Hermia and Lysander inform her that they are running away, and that Helena will be able to have Demetrius since he will never see Hermia again. Once Hermia and Lysander leave, Helena gives her soliloquy which reflects the mood of anger and jealousy; she also talks about how she’s going to tell Demetrius the two lover’s plans, so that Demetrius will love her again.
The Author conjures that “Princess Alyss Heart : not alive in the flesh and blood, but very much alive in the symbol of more innocence.” (Beddor 136). The Alyssians are saying how Alyss is a symbol for what they stand. They are also saying that she was too innocent to die. The narrator states that “I am asking for your hand in marriage.” “But... Your Highness, are you sure?” (Beddor 171).
She greets the king with kind words, “amiable humility” and “heaps dissimulation on dissimulation by showing the deepest gratitude for the great honour” of having the king in her house. (Pfundheller 3) The power of Lady’s words upon Macbeth and her determination to achieve the criminal plan are valued in the seventh scene. Macbeth’s soft character and his weak-will determine him to have second-thoughts and “proceed no further in this business” (1.7.34), but Lady Macbeth succeeds to pursue him to continue the plan: Art thou afeard To be the same in thine own act and valor As thou art in desire? Wouldst thou have that Which thou esteem’st the ornament of life And live a coward in thine own esteem, Letting “I dare not” wait upon “I would,” Like the poor cat i’ th’ adage? (1.7.43-49) Once again “Lady Mabeth’s eloquence is too much for him.

In truth, Humbert falls in love with Lolita not because of her looks or her personality, but simply because she embodies the traits of a nymphet. In his urge to seduce and possess her, Humbert’s love falls short of madness. In his will to satisfy his passions, he conjures up an obsession:“I am thinking of aurochs and angels, the secret of durable pigments, prophetic sonnets, the refuge of art. And this is the only immortality you and I may share, my Lolita." (Nabokov, 309).
His beloved Rosaline, which he could not make absent in his mind, has suddenly vanished from existence the moment Romeo gets a glimpse of the pretty face of Juliet. Romeo forgets about Rosaline when he sees Juliet, as he states “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight, for I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”(22.214.171.124). Romeo notices how his love for Rosaline was not true, yet he still chooses to “love” someone new immediately, although this is just the same as his previous “love.” His judgement of the love he feels is based merely on beauty, although this is physical attraction, which heh does not understand. Romeo and Juliet are young and have not
