The final example is when Titania and Bottom fall in love but it's not true love so they don't end up together. Those are the main examples that Shakespeare's uses to show what he thinks about love. When Eques tells Hermia that she can't
Romeo and Juliet is a classic romance story by William Shakespeare about two star-crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, falling in love. Nevertheless, their two families have a vendetta against each other, making it difficult for Romeo and Juliet to ever truly be together. This romantic set-up has been used multiple times after Shakespeare, such as West Side Story. The story itself has very romantic and light-hearted moments, but a lot of issues that aren’t paid as much attention to can be calamitous. Despite a lot of the play exploring the positives and the beauty of love and romance, the real lessons from the story are found in the primitive and belligerent nature of the characters.
In the beginning of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Demetrius has won the acceptance of Hermia’s father and is now determined to make her his own. Demetrius is in love with Helena, but is more so infatuated by the fact that she doesn’t love him. He feels as if he has won the right to Hermia when he says, “Relent, sweet
Hermia, much to her father 's dismay, is deeply in a mutual love with a different nobleman, Lysander. In addition, Hermia 's childhood best friend and Demetrius were in love prior to his sights turning towards Hermia. This crushed Helena, causing her to lose self-confidence, but still: she yearns for Demetrius 's love. Hermia and Lysander 's love, Egeus 's harsh rule, and Helena 's unrequited love for Demetrius causes the lovers to leave Athens.
Being alike in many ways, the two main female characters also make a distinction. Engaging in the gauzy mystery of romance, Shakespeare points out that, when it comes to Hermia and Helena’s concept of love, the two female characters fit perfectly in the gender stereotypes by aggressively and passionately pursuing love. In contrast, Shakespeare states that the madness of Demetrius and Lysander can somehow be explained as they are believed to be deeply enchanted. The reader expects that the lovers would form two couples; however, nonparallel situations occur since both men love Hermia. In addition, the dramaturgic suggests that once Demetrius and Helena were lovers, they could be together again.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream dealt with the universal theme of love and its complications: lust, disappointment, confusion, and marriage, featuring three interlocking plots, connected by a celebration of the wedding of Theseus, Duke of Athens and the Amazonian queen Hippolyta. The play rotates around different forms of love, two of them being love for friendship (Philia) and romantic (Eros) or true love. Love is the most important theme of the play and the asymmetrical love seen in the play between the four Athenians and romantic encounters cause conflict within the play. There is a strong friendship love between two characters, Hermia and Helena. These two ladies are regarded as sisters as they have grown up together always having each other’s

The Aeneid tells of Queen Dido and her obsessive love. The love for her spouse, Aeneas, blinds her of rational thinking. Through the tale of Queen Dido Virgil represents how an obsession can cause people to lose themselves. An obsession can alter one's perception on what is truly important. Virgil uses Queen Dido to prove that obsessive love can have far-reaching consequences for the individual.
As regular human beings, we feel the primal sensibility of finding true love. But finding true love might be very difficult because of the chance of an infatuation. In the romantic play “Romeo and Juliet”, by William Shakespeare, there are two main characters that come from families that have always hated each other.
William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is still relevant, for it contains Mood, Dream Motif, and Genre Romantic Comedy to which audiences can still relate to today. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a story that expresses many different moods. The first mood for one of my examples is sadness.
Midsummer Night’s Dream The Thematic Idea of Love In the play Midsummer Night’s Dream ,the couple that shows the best example of the thematic idea of love would be Hermia and Lysander. What they show us about love,as human beings,is the strong bonding,the strong love one can for take. An example to show this would be when Lysander as telling Hermia his plan, he said”If thou lovest me then,/Steal forth thy father’s house tomorrow night./And in the wood,a league without the town”(1.1.163-165).This scene shows that they are willing to break the law just so they can be together.
In "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Shakespeare suggests that love is fickle and incompatible with reason. Helena's refusal to accept that Demetrius is not in love with her displays the insanity love is capable of producing. The behaviour of the four Athenian lovers after being influenced by the love potion reveals the unpredictable nature of
