Then goes on to say, “I am perjured most / For all my vows are oaths but to misuse thee” (6-7). These statements both are saying that Shakespeare knows that he is breaking promises to possibly himself, his religion and others, by loving a married woman. Though he cannot put all the fault onto her, because his vows to love her were only there to exploit the love she was physically giving him. In connection to Shakespeare’s sonnet, Amy Winehouse’s You Know I’m No Good, she is singing about how she is the one in the committed relationship, yet cannot seem to stay loyal to her significant other. Winehouse may love him, but knows that she is not good for their relationship.
Shakespeare in A Midsummer Night’s Dream dealt with the theme of love and its four types, including loves many complications such as disappointment and confusion. The play rotates around different forms of love, two of them being friendship love (Phileo) and romantic (Eros) or true love.

There is a strong friendship love between two characters, Hermia and Helena. However, their friendship love is tested throughout the play by their pursuit of true love which, in the end, ultimately prevails.
Mothers have pushed their children to achieve greatness since the beginning of time. Such an example can be seen in a mother’s request to Samuel Johnson for an archbishop’s patronage for her son and the response of Samuel Johnson. In this letter, Samuel Johnson uses various rhetorical strategies to explain and justify to the mother that there is no reason for him to endorse her son and talk to the archbishop about patronage. In the beginning, Johnson explains the mistake that the mother made. He describes expectation that is “dictated not by reason, but by desire” is “dangerous to indulge.” She expected Johnson to comply and that her son would receive patronage.
Love and lust two different Dr.Judith Orloff is the definition she explained is “pure lust is based solely on physical attraction and fantasy and often dissipates”and Love defined by researchers suggests “the feeling of intimacy, emotional connection and closeness is central to all types of love.” .Romeo and Juliet are not really in love both Romeo and Juliet show only a physical attraction rather than an emotional connection that can only be found by truly getting to know one another and takes time.

Secondly, Blanche finds that she is only an outsider of Stella’s life without her past family position.
The ridicule of love is a prominent theme throughout the play, most obvious though Phoebe’s interactions with love. She is the reason for Silvius’ borderline obsession, and frequently reasons why she does not want to be with him. Phoebe ridicules Silvius, an individual who oozes traditional pastoral views on love, which includes passionately longing for the person he believes to be his one true love, for having these very ideals. She ridicules the fact that Silvius stated that her “eyes can wound” because she believed that “there is no force in eyes that can do hurt” (3.5.16, 25-26). Here, Phoebe debunks every stereotypical view on love that was shown in the pastoral age, where lovers loved each other to painful lengths, where the mental pain of not being able to be with one another transformed into physical pain.

The question of why Olivia, after dramatically declaring her affections for Cesario, would so quickly jump to Sebastian after finding Viola’s true identity, is likely answered by the societal norms of the Elizabethan era. Cesario and Viola are two halves of one whole; by loving Cesario, Olivia loves Viola too. Upon meeting “him,” Olivia says “Thy tongue, thy face, thy limbs, actions and spirit/ Do give thee five-fold blazon” (1.5.297-298). She is attracted not just to Cesario’s mannerisms, but to Viola’s beauty, which shines through her male bravado. The “actions and spirit” which Olivia refers to are Viola’s ability to converse with Olivia woman-to-woman, unbeknownst to the countess.
In defiance of Shakespeare’s typical comedies, the most dramatically intense love relationship in The Merchant of Venice is not one between a man and a woman, but between two men: Antonio, the merchant of Venice, and his friend Bassanio. It is unquestionable that Shakespeare thought long and hard about the issues that he raises in his works and projects an equally wide range of attitudes to both love and sex through the situations and characters of his plays. The Merchant of Venice, as stated, breaks from the typical mode, yet remains a member of Shakespeare’s romantic comedies: romantic in the sense that it deals in an ideal view of love which places the lover on a pedestal—known as petrarchan love—in which the lover feels an idealized, spiritualized
