In Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 148”, the speaker is clearly a man that is in love, but seems to think of love in a negative way. He feels that love itself is tricking him and clouding his judgment. He sees his love as far better than everyone else sees her to be. He states, “O me, what eyes hath love put in my head/ Which have no correspondence with true sight!” (1-2). This shows how the speaker thinks he is being robbed of the sight of reality.
Most of the time when people think of love they picture warm affectionate acts toward other people. This is not always the case for some people the word love is disgusting either because of previous failed emotional disasters with another person or because they life has yet to give them the ability to find their soulmate.

He also describes children running up to the carriage offering themselves to him explicitly. Although Gregorio is slightly disturbed by these occurrences, he still remains emotionally aloof. The novel’s audience, however, will no doubt be made extremely uncomfortable by the situation, which grates against modern-day morality. The role of women and children, in this scene at least, is relegated to satisfying the carnal desires of men; they are
A major factor in the smoothness of a relationship of love would be the people outside of the actual relationship. There is more then just two people the two people in love involved, because there is always someone trying to get involved in the relationship one way or another, which takes a toll on the smoothness of the course of love. When Claudio first explains his feelings of love for Hero at the beginning of the play, Benedick asks Claudio “But I hope you have no intent to turn husband, have you?” (Shakespeare 17). He doesn’t want Claudio to marry because then he will lose his best friend. Claudio now has to think about his best friend as well as his lover in making the decision of whether or not to marry.
We live in a society that has increasingly demoralizes love, depicting it as cruel, superficial and full of complications. Nowadays it is easy for people to claim that they are in love, even when their actions say otherwise, and it is just as easy to claim that they are not when they indeed are. Real love is difficult to find and keeping it alive is even harder, especially when one must overcome their own anxieties and uncertainties to embrace its presence. This is the main theme depicted in Russell Banks’ short story “Sarah Cole: A Type of Love Story,” as well as in Richard Bausch’s “The Fireman’s Wife.” These narratives, although similar in some ways, are completely different types of love stories. “Sarah Cole: A Type of Love Story” is the tale of a young, handsome man who has an affair with, and ends up falling for, “the homeliest woman he has ever seen” but refuses to admit to others and himself that he loves her.

Gatsby is Obsessed AF When humans fall in love, sometimes the extent to which it occurs may lead to an obsession. Obsession can come in different forms, but most of the time it leads to a devastation of the individual. While being deeply in love with another is most of the time a good thing, once the obsession kicks in, certain conflicts may arise. Throughout F. Scott Fitzgerald’s writing of The Great Gatsby, Gatsby performs multiple actions that are very questionable and make him a suspect to this stalker type character. The main question many readers focus on is whether Gatsby is deemed as creepily obsessive or cute and romantic in the book.
There are many different types of stories out there, some which consist of love and others loss. Many people seem to think it is important to have sappy love in every good story. They think this because they have a lack of patience in plot building and need a certain amount drama to keep them entertained. However, it is possible to have a great story without any of that fluff. O’Connor’s “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” takes a different approach in a good story by introducing a slew of crazy irony.
For instance, Catullus knows that Lesbia is not faithful to him because she is married to someone else yet he still yearns for her and allows himself to get hurt by her actions even though he is not always very forthcoming with his emotions.
