A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams, demonstrates light as a moral conflict with Blanche’s personality. For example, light shows the true nature of appearance versus reality with Blanche losing her dignity and the reality of seeing her essential beauty. Williams portrays Blanche’s uneasiness about light in her romantic interest in Mitch. Blanche fears her emotions against the vague shadows of depression. Light symbolizes the tragedy of Blanche’s first love and the heartbreak that was unbearable to her soul.
In comparison to the rigid patriarchal society portrayed in “My Last Duchess”, Keats’ “La Belle Dame sans Merci” illustrates how the freedom of individual expression in the romantic period affects people’s perspective on love. While the narrative persona in “My Last Duchess” demands his wife to devote her love to him, the protagonist of “La Belle Dame sans Merci” devotes to the woman he loves even though the love is unrequited. This is evident through the repetition of the line “On the cold hill side.” throughout the poem. The noun phrase “cold hill” suggests that the knight is lonely and depressed when he waits for the woman solely, however unlike the narrative persona of “My Last Duchess”, he would not demand the woman to love him instead he would wait patiently until the day his affection towards her is accepted.
Hermia is one of many important lead roles in A Midsummer Night's Dream, and is the center of a “love square” between herself, Lysander, Demetrius, and Helena. Hermia is selfish and will sacrifice her family, morals, and reputation in her seemingly all-consuming love for Lysander. Her extreme loyalty to her lover is displayed when they run away to the magic forest to be married, and although they do in the end, Hermia sacrifices much of her emotional health in her submissive following of Lysander. Hermia’s devotion and trust of Lysander is displayed when her point of view differs from the reader. This is because the reader knows that Lysander has left Hermia for Helena, but Hermia still believes he loves her.
At this point, Juliet is unaware of his name and demands that the nurse tells her. ‘His name is Romeo, and a Montague, The only son of your enemy’ Juliet is clearly quite distraught and replies with a very emotional line, ‘My only love sprung from my only hate’. The contrast of love/hate, in my opinion is very powerful. It illustrates Juliet’s raw emotions and feelings for Romeo. She continues to add, ‘Too early seen unknown, and known too late’.
Edna 's inability to surrender to the notions of society causes her think in illusory ways that are unsustainable. It seems inevitable that Edna, at some point, will arouse from the dream that she is living; Edna 's decease was imminent from the moment of her awakening. Throughout the book, it is clear that Edna is searching for contentedness; however, it seemed the more she longed for contentment, the more she—paradoxically—exhibited contemptuous behavior. This is exemplified by the thoughts of Mr. Pontellier:
Oh! My God! the down, The soft young down of her, the brown, The brown of her—her eyes, her hair, her hair!” this shows how he is completely in love with her and that he thinks of her but in a way we can see the desperation in his words as he longs for a physical relationship with. The farmer is besotted with his wife and this feeling of love is very strong throughout the farmer’s hopeless
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, love and hate fall hand-in-hand. The oxymoron “This love feel I, that feel no love in this” demonstrates the sensation of love burning in Romeo, whilst annexing a mention of his struggle that Rosaline, the woman he seemingly loves, doesn’t reciprocate the same affection, indicating a prime example of a darker side to love (1.1.187). The oxymoron divulges a contradictory issue arising internally in Romeo. Shakespeare’s utilization of these oxymorons reveal that Romeo’s love indeed comes from an enemy family of his. As much as Romeo desires a perfect love life, his feelings of endearment perpetually battle with the supposed feelings of hate.
This quick agreement shows how Juliet changed from being rational to impulsive. Romeo influenced Juliet to be impulsive because he kept asking about love and marriage. Romeo influenced Juliet to be more open minded about love. While Romeo and Juliet are confessing their love for each other, Juliet states, “In truth, fair Montague, I am too fond, and therefore thou mayst think my haviour light; but trust me, gentleman, I’ll prove more true than those that have more cunning to be strange. I should have been more strange, I must confess, But that thou overheard’st,

It is evident that “Tony Birch revives Melbourne’s past” through the creation of structure, that creates images in the readers’ minds; and it is these images, that ultimately forms a type of a narrative, which restores Australia and Melbourne’s past – to the readers. The structure of – ‘My Words’, Beruk (Ngamajet) – 1835 – is interesting, because it creates a narrative accounting, the arrival of the British and the racism that prevailed, after their arrival. The poem’s structure can be unpacked by analyzing the poem thoroughly. The begins by addressing the arrival of the British colonial, by making references to the William Barak’s first impression of Captain Cook, who had “landed [wearing a] white jacket and brass buttons”.
