Then she continue onto question why is he walking all over her so wickedly when she continues to praise him so highly and remains loving him. Unlike Beyoncé, Shakespeare sees the deceit and lies for what it is. Somehow they come to different conclusion with the affairs. Even though Beyoncé was so astonishingly hurt by her husband 's deception, she somehow finds a way to still love him. On the complete opposite side of the spectrum, Shakespeare has concluded that her energy was too dark and
His complexity means that he is a round character given that he is not a stereotype. The play portrays him as a romantic person through his thoughts and affection for Hero throughout the story. However, one might argue that his romantic ideals are imaginary since, which refers to his “love” to Hero. Claudio is also very naïve due to the fact, that he is fooled multiple times during the play. The main example of this is when he thinks Hero cheats on him and afterwards he shows that he is rather vindictive and impulsive given that his anger leads to the humiliation of Hero.
Sound There are no complex use of alliteration or assonance in the poem, which is suitable for his message. The last rhyme does a sense of conclusion, which emphasizes despite all the recent undermining their beauty of his affection for his mistress. Settings, themes and ideas The basic idea in the poem is to challenge the poets who use too much hyperbole in their descriptions of their love. Shakespeare makes fun of the clichés of love poetry, such as the idea that their eyes are "like the sun". Through his down to earth descriptions he shows how unrealistic are the conventional metaphors.
Kent believes that “to plainness honor’s bound when majesty falls to folly” (I.i.165) or “when power to flattery bows” (I.i.165). The flattery Kent refers to is the disingenuous and exaggerated professions of love from his daughters Goneril and Reagan, which he has to point out for the lies they are as he is honest and loyal. The juxtaposition of majesty falling to flattery foreshadows the effects of Lear’s lack of judgment and the literal fall of his majesty. Shakespeare usage of the litotes when Kent explains Lear that his daughter Cordelia “does not love (him) least” (I.i.171), underscores his usage of plain language, as opposed to decorative speech, which again pertains to his truthful nature. To emphasize this honesty to the audience during my performance, Kent barely uses gestures and in the cases where he does they are minimalistic gestures as a slight shaking of the head for “does not love (him) least” (I.i.171), which is a juxtaposition to the deceptive eldest sisters who’s gestures are purposely exaggerated for the opposite
Romeo’s longing for ideal love is the primary driving force behind most of his actions, that reveal themselves as impulsive and stupid. In the tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, mutual love and devotion are the main characteristics of Shakespeare’s ideal love. He also portrays the idea of lovers making sacrifices in order to be together, even if it means forsaking things that are valuable to their existence, including their lives. The individuals possessed by ideal love are not the only ones who are affected by it. In Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence’s first reaction to Romeo’s drastic change of “love” was shocking : “Holy Saint Francis, what a
Cesario’s response clearly identifies his cleverness, skill and how he is a natural poet. Olivia is so drawn in because Cesario’s type of poetry is new and spontaneous in comparison to Orsino’s cliched poetry (once again referring to the idea that Orsino is misguided in love). Here Shakespeare has used comic relief in this scene as Orsino himself would never live in a makeshift hut as he is ‘above’ that. Once Cesario leaves Olivia wants to know how one “so quickly may catch the plague?” This metaphor contains an element of violence, further painting the idea that it physically hurts Olivia to love and in an extreme case it may make her want to die. Overall, Shakespeare has presented love as a complex theme throughout Act 1 by consistently showing how love can either end in happiness or hurt.
The character of Antonio in Twelfth Night was almost a requirement for the plot that Shakespeare delivered; not only did he provide a gift that connected the two characters of Sebastian and Cesario, but he also provided an example of devoted love. The devoted love that Shakespeare portrayed through Antonio’s speeches and actions provide a striking contrast to the love that Duke Orsino had throughout the plot. Even the gift that Antonio presents in the play is a symbol of his greater love compared to any of the other characters. Shakespeare uses Antonio to oppose the Petrarchan lover theme, as a tool to connect characters and to prove the final message of the play; undying love has no boundaries. The theme of love and misery is present throughout the play, yet Antonio holds a passionate and honest love that is a great contrast to the Petrarchan lover, Duke Orsino.
One of the main themes in Twelfth Night is Shakespeare's exploration of love. Typically, during Elizabethan times, courtly love was simply arranged however a large majority of Shakespeare's plays explore the deeper complications and conflicts of love using the themes of obsession and melancholy. Throughout Twelfth Night, Shakespeare mocks the superficiality of love between characters within the upper class status spectrum and the hyperbolic nature of their expressionism. He combats the chaos love can create and digs beyond the surface depth where only the simplicity of marriage is conveyed. Although Orsino is portrayed to adore Olivia, his devotion is undermined by his inconsistency and shallowness while Olivia, emerges to be driven by lustful
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.
When you develop an interest over somebody else, you would usually claim that this certain individual was the best. Sonnet 130, in contrary, took a diverging path through doing the exact opposite. With the phrase “false compare” as what I believe is the core representation of the poem, it breaks free from the usual love Petrarchan sonnets and utilizes a satiric method to express the speaker’s love to his mistress in a disparate way. Instead of expressing exaggerating superiors towards his mistress’s appearance, smell and voice, the speaker finds these thoughts to be skeptical and attempts to deny these “false comparisons” through negations. The speaker focuses on being realistic about the beauty of his mistress.
