Relationships are complex, as are the forces which cause them to change and evolve. A comparative study of F. Scott’s Fitzgerald’s novel 'The Great Gatsby' (TGG) and the ‘Sonnets of the Portuguese’ by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (EBB) provides insights into the forces, both personal and societal, which shaped their relationships with those around them. Both composers explore the themes of love and memories from the past through the lens of their social, historical and cultural contexts, shaping their values. EBB’s poems caution against relationships built on changing things such as appearances, whereas in TGG, relationships are based on materialism. Both texts deal with the complex nature of relationships and how this complexity is further

But despite this, there were also dark sides to the beauty: the classes, lack of women’s rights and working children. All these topics are conversed by the two famous authors Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. After reading “Persuasion” by Jane Austen, and watching two versions of “Mansfield Park” as well as “David Copperfield” and “Hysteria”, I have now decided that this essay will mainly be about equal rights between the genders and the differences between the working class and the aristocrats. In the text I will also mention socioeconomical issues and social science. My main focus will be women, how they lived, and survived, in the sexist society during the Regency era.
“The Tragedy of a Desperate and Hopeless Love” What are the limits of love? Is despairing love boundless and its ill-fated actions expected to be understood? How far is too far in an attempt to ease the hurt of a broken heart? The Love Suicides at Amijima is an emotional and sentimental story that demonstrates a more mind boggling look on affection, while Oroonoko gives an exemplary interpretation of a widespread romantic tale that everybody can rely upon, adoration everlasting. Both of these stories are socially various and significantly engage them.
John had courage and boldness which Ichabod lacked. Each courtship and book portrayed heavy emotion and feeling. This was a strong theme in books written in the Romantic Era and these courtships were a definite example of that. John Alden was emotional and spiritual while courting Priscilla.

Change is needed to ensure to future of world lies in good hands whether the change is from a societal change or from an environmental change. Hardy and Russell seek to reveal the significance of transformation while clingy to one’s origin through their literature. As they take opposite approaches, Hardy uses the naivety of a country to question ‘Melia’s change from the Town and becoming ruined, or of prosperity.
