The theme of this play is love is something that shouldn’t be overlooked because of one’s appearance. Cyrano de Bergerac is a complex play showing what one goes through when one loves a woman but doesn’t want to do anything about it because of one’s looks. There are several times in the play where Cyrano is portrayed as a proud man not ashamed of his nose. But when he is by himself. He is shown to have a negative opinion of his nose.
Now the two lovers can’t see each other and come up with a plan that does not end well. The mistakes that Romeo and Juliet made are that they fall in love, they don’t tell their families that they got married, and Romeo fighting with Tybalt.

Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
The theme of love and misery is present throughout the play, yet Antonio holds a passionate and honest love that is a great contrast to the Petrarchan lover, Duke Orsino. Orsino is a melancholic lover who is in love with the idea of being ‘in love’; but unbeknownst to Orsino his views on love are more towards his stomach it seems. The first lines of the play Orsino explains his skewed view on love, Orsino refers to love as an “appetite” and mentions that it is possible for the appetite to ‘sicken and die’ which was a foreshadow in my opinion of Orsino’s character because through the play he mentions how strong his love is for Olivia despite the fact that he suddenly loses interest in her when someone else is brought to his attention. The use of the word ‘die’ when talking about
First, she refuses to marry Paris, if she had seen how good of a person Paris actually is instead of being ignorant, she wouldn’t had died so tragically. Second, Juliet also rushes their relationship. In act 2 scene 2, she proposes the idea of marriage to Romeo and she lets him carry it along further. The third reason Juliet caused the end is her dying love for Romeo. Juliet had only known Romeo for 3 days and she was so in love with him that she killed herself when she realized she couldn’t be with him.
However Mike Hardcastle states, "Unrequited love"—love that isn't reciprocated—can be one of life's most painful experiences, for both teens and adults.” (Hardcastle, Web) If Mercutio in "Romeo and Juliet" was portrayed differently instead of his apparent anti-woman, and his attitude towards love the audience would miss out on an important minor character. Mercutio views love as physical pursuit unlike the majority of other males in this time period, has no limit on his tongue when it comes to women in general; absolutely Mercutio doesn’t look kindly on unrequited love in
The circumstances surrounding Gatsby and Daisy 's relationship kept them eternally apart. For Daisy to have been with Gatsby would have been forbidden, due to the fact that she was married. That very concept of their love being forbidden, also made it all the more intense, for the idea of having a prohibited love, like William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, made it all the more desirable. Gatsby was remembering back five years to when Daisy was not married and they were together: His heart began to beat faster as Daisy 's white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his
In the play Romeo is shown before Juliet, he’s heartbroken and depressed because he’s “in love” with a girl named Rosaline but the feeling isn’t mutual. Later he meets Juliet and the next three days he has convinced her to get marry but the table turns and now he’s banished. Juliet who fakes her death, leaving her family in shock and in sadness, just so she can be with Romeo. While some believe this play is Romeo’s Play, I maintain that this is Juliet’s play.
From the beginning of the novel, Hamlet proves to be very melancholy, and upset with his life. His father’s sudden death, and his mother’s quick remarry did not help his case. That being said, his emotions lead him to his insanity. Many people claim that Hamlet’s insanity is feigned, but his actions based on things that have happened in the past, prove otherwise.

In the play Twelfth Night, through the depiction of Orsino’s and Viola’s desires for romantic love, Shakespeare portrays how adjustable and self-delusional human romantic attraction can be, especially when blinded by wants and needs. Viola, who puts on the appearance of a man, makes everybody think she is a male. Her disguise becomes a sexual confusion throughout the play for several characters, creating an odd love triangle where Viola loves Duke Orsino, who loves Oliva, which then on the other hand loves Viola, in disguise as Cesario. On the other hand, Malvolio dreams of marrying his beloved Olivia, and gaining authority over his superiors, like Sir Toby. Shakespeare uses disguise in the play to show several confusions and internal conflicts between the characters, proving how malleable and deluded some human attractions can be.
