This love makes her recklessly give him all the special treatment from the fairies just to make him stay. Moreover, even though she dislikes his qualities like his “mortal grossness” or talking too much. She puts in a lot effort to make him perfect like by getting her fairies to tie up his tongue because he talks too much. In addition, her impetuous love carries on where she has a romantic encounter, sleeping with the unworthy donkey-headed man who is a humiliation for Titania, as the love potion makes her attracted to him. As a result, Titania’s love for Bottom results in making foolish hasty actions.
Overall, Shakespeare has presented love as a complex theme throughout Act 1 by consistently showing how love can either end in happiness or hurt. Many of the character throughout the play seem to view love as a curse placed onto people and as something that causes indescribable pain; whereas others view love as something that brings them happiness and joy. These two ideas greatly contrast each other exemplifying how complex love really is. Furthermore, the play as a whole shows how love cannot jump over every hurdle placed in front of it and when it fails to make it over that hurdle the characters feel great
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare is a comedic tale of lovers, fairies, and horrible actors. In this play, like most of Shakespeare’s plays, has many parts. All of the various parts and characters intertwine and all coincide into a complicated plot. Demetrius; Helena’s unwanted suitor brings tension into the the lopsided love triangle. Robin Goodfellow; a mischievous sprite who serves the king of fairies Oberon, also brings much conflict but is has a wonderful sense of humor.
Within the play, Shakespeare uses many different forms of love, as love is seen as the dominant theme that runs throughout it. There are many different forms of love presented in the play but the most obvious of those being romantic love as seen between Romeo and Juliet, where both are willing to do anything for each other. This type of love is also seen between Romeo and Rosaline but the major difference between Romeo’s love for Rosaline and his love for Juliet is the fact that it is “for doting not for loving”. This unrequited, almost non-existent love plays a major role in the novel. Even though the idea of the romantic love could be seen as the most pertinent kind of love, Shakespeare threads many other kinds of love throughout the novel,
The power of love could make people suddenly change the person whom they love and thus create a bizarre and chaotic situation. The magic and power of love is explicit in the play A Midsummer Night’s Dreams that shows love is irrational and blind.Shakespeare makes use of the romantic
Love is a very strong feeling and it 's portrayed in many ways. In Hamlet, Ophelia, the daughter of Polonius, has fallen for The young Prince Hamlet. In the play, Hamlet confuses us in the beginning because we think he’s just using her for pleasure, and not that he actually has feelings for her. But at the end of the story, we see a whole other side to the story. We see how much he actually loves her and not that he was using her for his own needs.
Growing up in a society obsessed with the concept of sappy love stories, it is easy to find flaws with the unrealisticness of such accounts of love. Songwriter Taylor Swift contributes to the popular trend of mainstream love stories in her own composition, “Love Story.” Throughout her song, Swift effectively incorporates the use of various figurative devices to relate her own love story with that of the famous Shakespearean lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Swift conveys the strength of her forbidden love, in similarity with that of Romeo and Juliet’s, through the use of metaphors, hyperboles, and allusions. First and foremost, Swift uses clear examples of metaphors throughout her song to maintain the resemblance of Romeo and Juliet’s love story with her own love story. Throughout the song, as it will be described later, Swift makes multiple comparisons between her lover as Romeo and herself as Juliet.
This is an excellent idea for adding modernization since this play does work neatly with adding theatrical elements such as music. However, the execution was exceedingly poor: the parodies were awkwardly worded, for instance, their interpretation of “Bohemian Rhapsody” by the artist Queen. This iconic song was used to portray the Canadian Antipholus’s confusion over Luciana. At the time she was under the belief Antipholus was cheating on her. The choice of “Bohemian Rhapsody” was a poor one, as it felt as if they threw in lyrics to suit the play, but kept most of the original song which created a bizarrely grating final product.
Andre Gide once said, “It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.” This quote relates to the “Twelfth Night” because of how the characters think that their true love will not love them for who they are. The “Twelfth Night,” by William Shakespeare, is focusing on the concept of mistaken identity and uncertainty of gender. It was written in 1601–1602, the main purpose of the “Twelfth Night” was to create excitement for the upcoming Christmas feeling. Throughout this story the characters put on a fake life to try to create true love. Therefore, all that was created was fake love and anger.
The power of love is another prominent theme that is explored in Shakespeare 's "Romeo and Juliet". He uses the two characters to show the idea of how love can do unforgettable things such as breakdown friendships, cause banishing and exiles and even cause death. The love between Romeo and Juliet is unlike many other relationships where couples seem perfect for each other and everything ends with a happily ever after. Shakespeare has realised this and shows how love is more than this. The play has the two star crossed lovers have a relationship that can bring two rivalling families together at their death.
