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. Phoebe, seeming almost cynical in the way she is dismissing Silvius, simply states she does not believe in the myth of what love feels like. She assures Silvius this is not what he feels, because those feelings could simply not exist, and if that time ever comes, not to “pity” her, because she “shall not pity” him (3.5.34-35).
The narrator assumes forgetting her lover will make the pain better and is angry at her heart for not allowing her to forget him. She wants to forget him as soon as possible “Haste! Lest while you’re lagging” (7), once again using an exclamation point to indicate anger and hurry, wanting the pain to end. The narrator is angry at herself for not being able to forget him and letting him get to her. Dickinson may have used this poem to express her feelings about an unrequited love interest and the pain that comes with it.
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. In her chorus she sings, “I cheated myself / Like I knew I would / I told you I was trouble / You know that I 'm no good” (9-12).
This reflects that the woman’s reputation is much more important than a man’s reputation in Victorian England. Like in the other novel “Tess of the d’Urbervilles”, the reputation of a woman is easily tainted and cannot be hidden; women cannot start their life over as if nothing has happened. Henchard is worried about Lucetta more than he is worried about himself. In addition, Lucetta seems as a romantic person that gets excited about the prospects of love without thinking about the relationship itself. When Lucetta waits to meet Henchard and ran into Farfrae, she quickly agrees to start a love relationship with Farfrae despite that she did not really know him.
Marie wants the relationship to move fast towards marriage so she constantly asks Meursault questions to see how he feels about her: "A moment later she asked me if I loved her. I said that sort of question had no meaning, really; but I supposed I didn 't. She looked sad for a bit" (Camus 24) Meursault truthfully does not think love means anything so he explains that to Marie. He also does not think he is being insensitive by telling her he probably does not love her because that is his truth. After he explains his beliefs he shows his humanity by observing that she indeed looks sad.
Some people fall for the unrealistic expectations of love that the media portrays, and some people see the problems that two people 'in love ' have and see that love doesn 't really exist. 6) Summer: "There 's no such thing as love, it 's a fantasy." a) Again, this shows Tom and Summer 's different opinions on love and marriage. Tom fell hard in love with Summer very quickly, while she never believed in the idea of love in the first place. From the very beginning, she expressed her opinions of love, but despite this, Tom felt that he could magically change Summer 's opinion of love and get her to believe that love exists, even though sometimes, love is fabricated and isn 't
The ‘perfect girl’ does not even match the narrator’s tastes, or exceed his beauty standards. He too admits it is unusual, confiding to his friend the weirdness of it all. Even though the narrator does little to none to engage with the ‘perfect girl’ she is perfect because he chose to fall in love with her. This can be supported with the fact that he was so afraid of being rejected by her, that he failed to approach her and had lost her in the end; his ridiculous fears are stemmed from how completely perfect the narrator thinks she is. Even though the narrator was convinced that fate brought him to her, he over idealised the ‘perfect girl’, severing any chance of making his perfect romance
In the beginning, Benedick acts like a jerk to most characters and is never straightforward towards them. He never thinks of loving others, but thinks others love him back when he says, “then is courtesy a turncoat. But it is certain I am loved of all ladies, only you excepted; and I would I could find in my heart that I had not a hard heart, for truly I love none”(184.108.40.206-125). Benedick does not require status to be happy or to love someone. He eventually finds love to Beatrice and changes personalities by the end.
Fitzgerald hints at the fact that they might actually be soulmates that can’t be together, because while Daisy seems to have real feelings, and is actually happy for once, she wouldn’t leave Tom because she expects and knows she can get money from him and he can keep her safe in that way. The fact that Daisy allows this factor of money to get in the way of her feelings shows that she is not in love with neither Tom nor Gatsby. If she was truly in love with Gatsby, she would be with him and not let other influences get to her. Gatsby is perhaps the most controversial character when it comes to love. He gets so twisted up on the idea of love that he thinks in order for someone to love him, he needs to be rich.
