While people are often able to identify when they feel the emotion love, love itself seems to defy definition.

However, in her argument, she fails to offer her definition of love and does not identify love as an emotion.
(1-2). This shows how the speaker thinks he is being robbed of the sight of reality. He is blinded by his love, and does not know how to see the truth. He uses a desperate and somewhat regretful tone; he says that his love does not correspond with “true sight”, and that all he sees are lies. Love often highlights the better attributes of a person, and hides their flaws, which is exactly what happens to the speaker.
All these are the what creates a barrier in both Othello and Fences ;In Othello Iago understands that insecurity that prevent him from fully interacting with the world. Troy is almost the same, He has an emotional barrier that exist within him that prevent him from fully interacting or placing his trust in this world and The people that lives in it. All this prevent him from forming good relationships at work. Troy cannot trust Rose, even though She is the incarnation of a good wife and she doesn't give any reason to be insecure. At the end, this is what creates the emotional distance between them.
This ironically also demonstrates Othello’s flaw, because he doubts her loyalty and in turn, chooses to trust Iago over her. However, Othello first chooses to believe Desdemona, and denies the clues that hint toward her affair with Cassio. Othello sees that the lowest soldier “tasted her sweet body” and knows nothing of it (Oth. 3.3.46). Despite the obvious clues Iago places, Othello chooses to trust his wife. However, he later acknowledges Iago’s manipulation and follows the path he creates.

Hence, why Gatsby is found “standing alone on the marble steps” and why when Nick tried to find Gatsby everyone “denied so vehemently any knowledge of his movements.” Gatsby and is reclusive at his own parties simply because he has no interest or concern for his party guests.

Schulz’s first major argument is the lack of emotion in the novel. This dispute is declared false with evidence such as Nick Carraway’s relationship with Jordan Baker.

be true, /But for mere suspicion in that kind, /Will do as if for surety” (I, iii, 324-327) to give another reason for his hatred. Iago admits that he has no proof of Othello’s crime against him, but he still states it as a reason for his hatred. Iago contains too much hatred to be led by a near suspicion which causes the audience to believe that this reason has no truth behind it, and it appears as an excuse. Shakespeare continues to craft the mystery behind Iago’s motives when Iago describes Othello as a man with “constant loving noble nature/
The definition of a sympathetic character is one whom the writer expects the reader to identify with and care about, though not necessarily admire. In the novel, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, Curley’s wife, a main character in the book is blatantly portrayed as an unsympathetic character. This is because they only see her through the men's eyes, who only see her as a tiresome object, owned by her husband. Steinbeck’s portrayal of Curley’s wife is unfair and misogynistic because he only displays her as unintelligent and promiscuous, never has a character have a turning point where they realize she’s more than an object, and he never reveals her true name. The first reason that Steinbeck's portrayal of Curley’s wife is unfair is that he never gives Curley any redeeming personality traits, he only depicts her as unintelligent and promiscuous.
Because of this, she’s expected to love him no matter what.

She loved the intent, far look in his eyes when they rested on her, the funny shape of the mouth”(pg 2). In order to justify her servitude to him, she unconsciously attempted to look for valid reasons to love him, which didn’t exist, which resulted in these inadequate
Love is a complicated concept in this world that people frequently experience in their lifetime. In her essay, “Love’s Vocabulary,” Diane Ackerman explores the beautiful idea of love and describes love in many creative ways with insightful words. Out of all the things she compares love to, her most excellent comparison is with an “intoxicant,” a substance that has the power to cause people to lose control of their behavior. This comparison expresses many truths about love because, like an intoxicant, love is an influential force that is comprised of numerous elements and comes in many different types. Ackerman’s choice of comparing love to a word with such negative connotation is wise, for it implies that love can be so strong to the extent
