In Midsummer Night's Dream Shakespeare is saying that love isn't always easy and some people might want to stop you from loving someone. But if that person is your true love you should pursue them no matter what. There are three main ways he shows this in the play. For example when Eqeus tells Hermia that she can't marry Lysander, but they get married anyway. Another example is when Demetrius doesn't love Helena but Demetrius is Helena's true love so she keeps on pursuing him and they end up together.
John Ruskin once said, “It is better to lose your pride with someone you love than to lose that someone you love with your useless pride.” Similarly, in Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare also suggests that the biggest barrier between romantic love is pride. He asserts, this by telling the readers that love is a far more authentic feeling than pride, and that love can only grow if an individual is able to set aside their pride and allow themselves to be both vulnerable and receptive to authentic feelings. The first thing that is emphasized in the play, Much Ado About Nothing is the vulnerability and dangers of love. It’s shown that falling in love is a constant danger, and that no one gets out of the ordeal unharmed. When one is in love, they can be hurt by the words, and actions of their special someone.
She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.
Written in the stars People say if it was meant to be it will be written in the stars and in the case of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, their constellation is nowhere to be found. Romeo and Juliet's love was not meant to last, real love does not need planning. Romeo and Juliet's love was to passionate to last forever because Juliet loved Romeo based on the mentality that she could not have him, Romeo loved Juliet because he needed an ego boost and Juliet and Romeo loved each other based on each others looks. Thus making Romeo and Juliet’s love not meant to last due to factors that made them love for the wrong reasons. The first reason why Romeo and Juliet's love was not meant to be is Juliet's love for romeo was based on her wanting something she can not have.
The marriage couldn’t have happened without Friar Laurence. Also readers might think that Friar was selfish by just wanting to end the family conflict by marrying them. You may ask why? Because Friar wouldn’t be directly involved and he wouldn’t see the consequences that Romeo and Juliet would see. Also for his far fetched plan to get them back together.
Beatrice and Benedick In the play “Much Ado About Nothing” by William Shakespeare, deception plays a role in bring them together because they deceived themselves into believing that they didn’t have any feeling for each other, they would also insult each other which is a sign of affinity for someone and then their are both tricked that one another is enamoured with them. It’s ok that their courtship is built on a lie because Beatrice and Benedick are right for each other, even if they won’t admit it. Deceiving Beatrice and Benedick was necessary because if everybody didn’t get involved to deceive them they have never ended up together and having a happy ending. While Benedick was sitting the orchard, Don Pedro, Leonato, and Claudio go
Lear, in Monmouth’s work, laments the lack of a male heir and in admission of age, resolves to divide his kingdom amongst his daughters: Goneril, Regan and Cordelia. When his youngest and most beloved Cordelia fails to please him, however, Lear promptly banishes her in rage. Similarly, Shakespeare’s King Lear depicts an identical scene in which Lear furiously declares “Here I disclaim all my paternal care” (1.1.125). Lear’s decision to disown Cordelia in haste exhibits lack of patience and foresight. The significant resemblance between the two works provide insight of Lear’s inability to consider, which eventually leads to his downfall.
When someone does something this wrong, one of the only ways you can truly determine whether they are “evil” or not is if they feel guilt or show remorse for their actions, both of which Lady Macbeth did in excess since she loses her mind and goes on a rant saying: Out, damn'd spot! out, I say!—One; two: why, then 'tis time to do't.—Hell is murky.—Fie, my lord, fie, a soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our pow'r to accompt?—Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him? (V. i.
However, Hermia does not want to get married to Demetrius rather she wants to get married to Lysander. As the play progresses different types of love ensue. In the beginning, there is forced love whereby Thesus is forced to marry Hippolyta. There is also evidence of forced love between Hermia and Demetrius. Other forms of attachment evident in this story are Parental love between Hermia and Egeus.
When Goneril and Regan feign to love their father beyond words, they did this to gain their share of the kingdom. The only person who loves without asking anything in return rejects speech, so Cordelia says, “What shall Cordelia speak? Love, and be silent” (Shakespeare 1.1.68). Words are unnecessary for true love that exists in the silence of devoted actions. Likewise, Edmund lies to his father about the letter to gain his trust and ruin Edgar’s reputation.
‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me!’” (Fitzgerald 130). Gatsby continues to use words that convey possession. He expresses that Daisy “never loved” her husband Tom as if Gatsby knows this for certain. Gatsby never asks Daisy how she feels about this; he feels compelled to speak on her behalf because he is just so certain of her feelings towards him.
Bathsheba and David soon conceived a second son, Solomon. The story doesn’t say if Bathsheba seduced David, then that would be a case of femme fatale, but for what I have read David is the one who fell in love with her at first sight and send for her. Not always women are the one to blame into mans misery, but man itself condemn themselves into a path of disgrace because they choose to sin. In this case scenario Bathsheba did not seduce David therefore David sinned as a choice of his own. But Bathsheba still gets blamed for David’s misery although she was just a women that did not intentionally try to get with David.
However, if Romeo had not been impulsive and did not married Juliet, she would not have had to choose between Paris and Romeo. Parents not a problem cause no need for forcing cause she no like romeo. Therefore, Juliet wouldn’t be driven to drink the poison that causes both Romeo and Juliet to die. Friar Lawrence warned Romeo of his impulsiveness when Romeo told the Friar of how his: “...heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet. As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage,” (3.2.61-65).
People feel so connected and powerful when they are together that they tend to forget everyone else’s feelings; the ones that are around them. The ones in love completely forgets the feelings of the people surrounding them and doesn’t care about them at all. That is what is in common with all three books, Like Water For Chocolate by Laura Esquivel, Love in The Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende. All three books show that when two fall in love, they do everything they can to be with the person and not care about what people around them may think of them being together. In Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquirel, Tita and Pedro want to be together for so long.
Some dream I had must have mistaken you for God that day. But you’re not, you’re not, and let you remember it! Let you look sometimes for the goodness in me, and judge me not.” (Miller 70). Here again John shows hypocrisy. He berates his wife for keeping such a cold and judgeful disposition, as if he is free of qualms.
