Catullus 5 shows how he wanted to kiss and be with Lesbia. Romeo and Juliet shows the love between two individuals, they long to be with one another for eternity. There are also parts where the authors show disgust and anger. Shakespeare 90 shows the distaste someone has for him. Catullus 16 shows the anger Catullus had over the actions of his friends.
A simile is a comparison between two objects using like or as. For example, Romeo describes how Juliet's beauty stands out more than any other object, “It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear,” ( I.iv.43-44). Another simile is where Juliet proclaims her love for Romeo is bigger and deeper than the sea, “ My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep”
Mercutio: My invocation is fair and honest. In his mistress' name I conjure only but to raise up him. (2.1.27-29) Mercutio’s witty statement provides an exquisite example of dramatic irony because he and Benvolio reference Romeo’s mistress, with Rosaline in mind, and they are oblivious to the fact that Romeo now loves Juliet.
Based off the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, Eurydice by Ocean Vuong, incorporates the classical elements of the ancient Greek legend with poetic figurative language and writing to establish a romantic mood centered on the theme of love. Orpheus and Eurydice, a tragic love story, is similar to Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. Throughout the story, the main characters are seen to be deeply in love, however, a tragic event or occurrence seems to prevent the two characters from ever fully being together. For instance, Aristaeus, a jealous lover who sought Eurydice for himself, caused the death of Eurydice, thereby separating the Aristaeus sought to subjugate Orpheus and bring their love to an end. However, the two lovers ran into the woods together, effectively creating a long and tiresome chase.
One of the main types of love shown in Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet is Unrequited love. In act one scene one of Romeo And Juliet, Romeo states, “ Out of her favor, where I am in love.” Romeo is talking to Benvolio about how Rosaline doesn’t love him, and in turn he is sad. This is Unrequited love because the love between Romeo and Rosaline is not mutual.
Another instance is after Romeo kills Tybalt, Friar Lawrence explains the positive to his banishment and points out “A gentler judgement vanished from his lips: / Not body’s death, but body’s banishment” (3.3.11-12). Shakespeare uses the words body’s death as a way to foreshadow what will happen if they end up loving each other and prioritize their love over their well being. The words body’s banishment shows how the souls of Romeo and Juliet are exiled from their bodies because they can not be together. Thus, Shakespeare uses foreshadowing to show the death of Romeo and Juliet, even though the audience knows and proves that they choose love over life Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy that has started to become present in teens lives. The play shows that you should not put love over your well being as there will be fatal
In Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare explains love by using paradox, for example in lines 173 Romeo says statements like "cold fire," and "sick health," when he's struggling to explain his definition of love. What Romeo means by "cold fire" is that Rosaline was cold hearted when his heart had burned for her. By "sick health" Romeo means that he was in love with Rosaline
Scrooge “hung his head… and was overcome with penitence and grief”, because he realises that what he previously said and believed is wrong. He started to feel sorry for Tiny Tim and the Cratchits, seeing that the family is happy despite being poor, and Tiny Tim is loving and kind despite his disability. Feeling this guilt and “penitence” changes him to start become a little more sympathetic and kind towards poorer
The tragedy of the two young lovers was caused by the lovers themselves. They decided to judge on looks and not get to know each other. In act two prologue, the chorus states “Alike bewitchèd by the charm of looks.” Which proves that they only loved each other because of their looks. Another reason they are to blame for their own tragedy is because they acted on emotion not reason.
The song “Creep” by TLC is a great connection to Othello because both share infidelity tones. In the first verse, the singer seems like a loyal and distraught lover by saying, “I love my man with all honesty,But I know he's cheating on me.” This relates to the relationship between Bianca and Cassio. Bianca believes Cassio, is cheating on her when he gives Bianca the handkerchief that belonged to Desdemona. Bianca's thoughts immediately go to infidelity when she says, “This is some token from a newer friend/ Is ‘t come to this?”(3.4.
