Also, Prufrock states, “Do I dare/ Disturb the universe?” (45-6) and “So how should I presume?” (54) to verbalize his hesitance and dryness in his love reaction. Prufrock continuously expresses his inner conflict and refrains from taking action; such passiveness contrasts with the poem’s title being “The Love Song”. Both pieces are triggered by love, more specifically unrequited love, yet the general tone has an ironic detachment to some degree. Although both “Araby” and “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” are narratives revolving around the characters’ unrequited love, there are more differences than similarities in the boy and Prufrock’s love style. Apart from the obvious difference in the characters’ age, the enthusiasm level and the activeness in action are also noticeably different.

Discuss the presentation of love in Larkin’s Arundel Tomb The poem, Arundel Tomb, written by Philip Larkin explores the theme of love and how at times can be ambiguous. A notable example of this is in the first line of stanza one, it says “their faces blurred”. This could be symbolic of their universal love. Their facial appearance and physical qualities have wasted away but their love still remains and can’t corrode away as easily.

John Ruskin once said, “It is better to lose your pride with someone you love than to lose that someone you love with your useless pride.” Similarly, in Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare also suggests that the biggest barrier between romantic love is pride. He asserts, this by telling the readers that love is a far more authentic feeling than pride, and that love can only grow if an individual is able to set aside their pride and allow themselves to be both vulnerable and receptive to authentic feelings.
