Shakespeare is describing the girl he loves, however, it surprisingly sounds insulting. Shakespeare compares her to many images of beauty like the sun, coral, roses, and even a goddess and expresses how she doesn 't compare to any of their beauty. He finishes however by saying, “And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare as any she belied with false compare.” (lines 13-14) I love the ending of this poem. Shakespeare is saying even though she not as good as all the things he compared her too, she is still rare to him.
She does not let her lust for the Duke to take over and make foolish decisions. Even when the temptation to reveal herself and potentially win the Duke’s love may be great, she instead reinforces her position and gains trust of Duke Orsino, ensuring her
Daisy proves to be easily swayed and shallow from the start, if only Gatsby could have foresaw it before it affected when he returned from war expecting to have Daisy. Before Gatsby left for war, Daisy promised that she would wait for him, however, when Gatsby returned, he found the situation to be different from expected, yet was willing to persuade her to come back to him despite her disloyalty. “Daisy cannot wait for Gatsby to return from war. Since she desires a love which is defined rather than limbo; she quickly accepts her new love in Tom Buchanan. Her decision is to marry Tom”
Easily to win over for anything yet you love him, then you need to support him stop obeying orders. In addition, Polonius tells her to stop talking and hanging out with Hamlet and instead of standing up for what you want you decide to listen. Which shows that Ophelia would rather listen to her father then protect the person she say she loves Hamlet explains your love for hamlet didn't exist only when you wanted it to. Anybody that loves there mate would go through a great deal of trouble just to see them, she just obeyed and didn't bother to make a connect with Hamlet.
O hated potion, hence!” (Act 3, Scene 2, Lines 270-275) Once Lysander falls in love with Helena and not with Hermia, because of Oberon’s love juice, his former love for Hermia turned to hate rather than apathy. This hate towards Hermia and love for Helena causes him to act very irrational, resulting in violence. Another example is that, even though Demetrius does not love Helena, she is still blindly attached to
He states “I hope you will believe that my delay in answering your letter could proceed only from my unwillingness to destroy any hope….”. Johnsons begins this letter using emotion tactics because he knows that it will be hard for the mother to accept the fact that he is refusing her request. By beginning the letter in such a manner he is not pampering her for the rest of the letter but also letting her down softly as possible. Oppose to accusing her of being wrong for having this feeling and attempting to change her son’s fate, Johnson defines hope as being “a pleasure immoderately enjoyed” and as an “expectations improperly
Shakespeare basically strives against the stream by proclaiming his independence from the Petrarchan traditions and doing the exact opposite of those. Through the use of his rhetorical and argumentative structure the author plays an elaborate joke on the hyperbolism and exaggerated compliments. While doing so he also proclaims his love in a truthful manner which puts his declaration on a whole other level. With the use of the couplet he changes the tone of the poem into a plain but very powerful underlying message – his love to his mistress is so deep that he does not need to uses hyperbolic terms to describe it. To conclude, Sonnet 130 is an unconventional love poem which simultaneously criticises the Petrarchan traditions and declares another special notion of
So one of the personification that I found in Romeo and Juliet was From love’s weak childish bow, she lives uncharmed. (Act 1, Scene 1, Page 11). The meaning of this personification was about Rosalina. Romeo says this to Benvolio while talking about love. Romeo says that she doesn’t want to fall in love and he says that she beautiful and has lovely eyes, but she is sadly a vrigin and vowed it.
In the novel, Bronte explores the theme of love versus autonomy as well as the symbolic element of ‘fire versus ice’ through Rochester and St John. Jane realizes she would sacrifice her dignity and freedom by marrying Rochester, and in comparison she realizes that freedom would mean imprisonment by marrying St John as she would need to keep her emotions in check. Therefore, the novel is focused on Jane’s journey to balancing the conflicts in order to become content as well as learning how to gain love without sacrificing her dignity in the process. In contrast, the film shows no basis of contrast between St John and Rochester and consequently excludes Jane’s development as a human being as the film is solely focused on her affair with
Sixteenth-century society did not think of or accept female same-sex relationships, and the gods’ plans for Galathea and Phillida reflect the sentiments of the time. Neptune says their love is “strange and foolish, for one virgin to dote on another, and to imagine a constant faith where there can be no cause of affection” (5.3.1084-5). Venus, on the other hand, approves of the relationship, but only if either Galathea or Phillida transforms into a man. While Galathea and Phillida both approve of the decision, the heteronormative view of love still shines as the best version; in modern contexts, this ending questions the validity of Lyly’s definition of love. If Galathea and Phillida’s love is already pure and true, they should not have to change.
Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare shows the difference between love and infatuation. Characters such as Orsino and Olivia give examples of infatuation, whereas characters such as Viola demonstrate a proper understanding of love. Orsino’s feelings and actions towards Olivia show that he is infatuated with her. Olivia repeatedly tells Orsino that she is not interested in marrying him, yet he continues to pursue her. If Orsino truly loved Olivia he would stop bothering her, as that is clearly what she wants.
Julia and Winston are similar in many aspects but also very different in others.

“There’s nothing remarkable in their making a man foolish, in women winning men To sin, for Adam our father was deceived just so, and Solomon, and also Samson, Delilah was his death and later David Endured misery for Batheba’s beauty. Women ruined them: how wonderful if men could love them well, but never believe them!” (130). Ever since Adam & Eve days, females have been seen as femme fatale. As “An alluring and seductive woman, especially one who leads men into compromising and dangerous situations.
For centuries, people have debated about the right way of parenting, and finding a happy medium between passiveness and authoritarianism. However, time has shown that being either extreme could have a severe negative impact on a child. In Romeo and Juliet, a tragedy by William Shakespeare, both titular characters are raised under social constructs that cause their parents to set inflexible expectations and rules for their children. Due to this parenting style, their children are never able to develop necessary skills. Throughout the play, Shakespeare shows that strict parenting is destructive because it prevents children from developing decision making and socialization skills, and ensures that a child will become more rebellious as the parents’
Looking around a highschool classroom and studying the faces of the students. Wondering about the choices they have made, universal choices that will permanently affect them and their future, like ripples on the water of a usually still lake. Contemplating where they would be if previous decisions had been decided in a different manner, curious of where and who they would be. The decisions that they have previously made will continue to ripple and affect their lives. It truthfully really leaves a person to wonder, why humans are unable to base decisions off of other people’s mistakes whether fictional or real.
