After a catalogue of metaphors during which Keats’s narrator fails escape through each, the miserable man comes to the conclusion that escape from his life is impossible, and transcendence is a horizon reached only by the song of birds. Beginning his poem with "My heart aches" (Line 1), Keats delves immediately into the melancholy of his narrator. Feeling lethargic and downtrodden, the speaker describes that he feels as if “of hemlock [he] had drunk” (Line 2). Plagued by a dullness of sense, this man makes clear that it is not envy that he feels toward this bird, “But being too happy in thine happiness” (Line 6). His aching heart imagines this “Dryad of the trees” (Line 7) singing of the coming summer without a care in the world and no knowledge of the suffering of despondent mortals.
Throughout the book, Rostand uses the motifs platonic love and beauty to highlight the idea that idealism requires nobility, integrity, courage, and self-sacrifice. Cyrano has created a mental stage where women are kept on the outside and men are free to go within.

When Cyrano is complaining to Le bret that he can never have Roxane he says, “With this nose of mine that marches on… Whom should i love? Why-of course-it must be the most beautiful woman in the world”(48).

His desire for Sheila forces him to try to seem sufficient enough Sheila's love even if it means endangering his passion.
The waitress proceeds to tell these travelers that she even loves one of them to hopefully achieve her goal of getting them to stay. After telling him that she loves him and seeing that this did not work, her last ditch effort was telling the translator to “Tell him her is a beautiful boy” (The Short Stories 294). This remark still does not win these men over, and showing her naivety, the girl stares off at the men as they leave, as if she has some kind of a place with them or they had fully known each other. The naïve waitress should have known that they needed to travel by day in order to get where they needed to before night fell because they were traveling by foot and
