“She smiled slowly and walking through her husband as if he were a ghost and shook hands with Tom, looking him flush in the eye.” We can see the disinterest she has for George by comparing her attraction towards Tom. Even beyond George and Myrtle’s relationship, Tom and Myrtle’s relationship is just a shallow. Myrtle is attracted to wealth, which is why she married George to begin with. Although she might feel some deeper level of attraction towards Tom, perhaps even love, he has no intent of loving Myrtle. She is just another mistress to Tom, and he is willing to give her the lavish lifestyle that she so desperately wants so that he can get what he wants,
Then goes on to say, “I am perjured most / For all my vows are oaths but to misuse thee” (6-7). 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.
Instead, Juliet meets Romeo there and the romance of the 'star-crossed lovers' takes off. We next see Paris in Act III, Scene 4 when he dutifully comes to pay his respects to Lord Capulet after the murder of Tybalt, Juliet's cousin. Capulet explains that with the recent family upheaval they have not had a chance to convince Juliet to marry him. At the end of the scene, Juliet's father, confident that she will obey him, promises Paris that the two can marry three days later. Neither of the men are aware that Juliet is already married to
Years later, she is still incognizant to his true feelings but when he begins reciting one of her love letters she comprehends the truth and Cyrano says to her , “ when Beauty said, “ I love you” to the prince, his ugliness melted away”(Act 5, Scene 4, Page 220). Like the fairytale, she comes upon a big realization of the truth and her intense love for Cyrano. Despite her immature and materialistic tendencies, she overcomes it and emerges into sincere women who values
Basing on the music, Mozart is trying to make the audience to love the don (Woodfield 2017). He is shown with lovable characteristics of courage, strength and is not a party to superstition. He is also an unapologetic man for his love of both life and women. Also, Mozart also tries to tell us more about who the don is especially by telling us who he is not. For instance Leporello his servant is provided a song that stomps along his characteristics of cowardice, whining and superstitious.
During the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hermia and Lysander were in love with each other when a major event happened and changes how they felt about each other.

In the "balcony scene" of Shakespeare, Romeo discreetly listens to Juliet 's soliloquy. However, in Brooke 's version, she makes her declaration of love while alone. By introducing Romeo to the scene where he eavesdrops, the author departs from the normal sequence of courtship.

The reason for deviating from the sequence mentioned, is because Shakespeare wanted to speed up the plot a bit.
Textual Analysis In Act I scene i of William Shakespeare’s King Lear, the protagonist, Lear, demands his daughters to publicly profess their love for him. Two of his daughters, Regan and Goneril do not hesitate to praise King Lear and exaggerate their love for him, whereas his third daughter Cordelia honestly admits that she cannot flatter him like her sisters. When King Lear warns her she will not bequeath any land, the Earl of Kent, Lear’s loyal advisor, points out that this is a mistake and he should not fall for the flattering words, but rather for actions. Shakespeare underscores the theme of deceit versus honesty through Kent’s language and actions which I attempt to communicated to the audience through interpretations of the text focusing on his gestures, tone, and physicality.
