On page 127 of Shopgirl, “At this point, Jeremy surpasses Mr. Ray Porter as a lover of Mirabelle, because as clumsy as he is, what he offers her is tender and true.” Jeremy is the man that will become the man of her dreams, and most importantly he loves Mirabelle in return. Thus, in these novels, as in life, peoples stories come to different endings. Catherine dies alone, never having found love. The one she thought was “the one” wasn’t. Instead of trying again, she lets the dream of love, and being loved, slip away.
Pride and Prejudice as Romantic Novel and Romantic Criticism To a great extent, Jane Austen satirizes conventional romantic novels by inverting the expectations of "love at first sight" and the celebration of passion and physical attractiveness, and criticizing their want of sense. However, there are also elements of conventional romance in the novel, notably, in the success of Jane and Bingley's love. The first indication of Austen's inversion of accepted romantic conventions is Elizabeth and Darcy's mutual dislike on first sight. However, Jane and Bingley fall in love almost immediately, and the development of their romance follows conventional romantic-novel wisdom, down to the obstacles in the form of Darcy's and Bingley's sisters' disapprobation (the typical disapproval of the Family) and the attraction between the rich young man and the middle class maid. Their Cinderella story ends in happily-ever-after, as does Elizabeth's and Darcy's.

The intensity of love that they grew for each other throughout the novel gave them the components of a consummate love. Throughout the novel, Pride and Prejudice, Austen uses five variations of Robert Sternberg's triangular love theory to describe characters and their views of love. With the love of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet as an infatuation, Charlotte and Collins as empty, Lydia and Wickham as fatuous, Jane and Bingley as companionate, and Elizabeth and Darcy as consummate, the characters make decisions which will bind them for their futures, all due to their intentions of love.

Dramatic and Linguistic Devices in William Shakespeare's Othello Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’, in my opinion is one of his most cleverly written plays. It is a tragedy, similar in a way to the likes of the famous Romeo and Juliet, as there is a definite romance in the play, which quickly turns sour, due to lack of trust and jealousy, or as some might think, the tragedy is all down to manipulation and deceit. The play deals with many controversial issues such as racism which makes it unique. In Act III Scene 3 Iago convinces a man who loves his wife completely that she is having an affair with one of his most trusted subjects without using one shred of proof or any real basis. This is a man who can make the most innocent of people guilty and the most loved, hated.
55) and when Werther describes Lotte he says "she is perfection" (Goethe p. 36). They are likewise utterly captivated by the ladies; they describe them as impeccably beautiful and flawless creatures.

Even though Romeo is not a romantic with a capital "R" and doesn't hope that God will forgive his suicide he has many commonalities with Werther. They loved with all their heart and projected deep passion, obsession and madness.
It is clear that Marvell does not have enough time to love the lady properly, and the language and structure of the poem creates an overall humorous and fun attitude towards love. ‘Sonnet,’ however, uses a structure and vocabulary that explores the unconditional great depth of Elizabeth Barrett-Browning’s true love. It is apparent in the sonnet that she has all the time in the world for her husband. As a result, ‘Sonnet’ has a more serious, religious and romantic attitude towards love compared to fun ‘To His Coy Mistress.’
"To His Coy Mistress" is written in a very amorous tone, while "Elegy for Jane" is written with a tone of deep, personal affection and loss. Dictionary definition number three for love is "sexual passion or desire". This is the stance from which "To His Coy Mistress" is written. Marvell spends the first twenty lines of the poem lauding such female attributes as coyness and virginity (lines 2 and 6). The first twenty lines of the poem are Marvell’s attempt to gain the trust of the object of the poem (for it is clearly written for a young lady).
This is how Claudio describes Hero in the earlier stages of the play, " She is the sweetest lady I have ever looked upon" This shows us his love for the beautiful lady he wishes to marry. Benedick and Beatrice have a hidden love. They show this love through hate. This may seem ridiculous, but in the early stages of the book, they seem to express their love through a hate relationship. They are constantly bickering.
Othello is a drama of passion and runs to the time of passion; it is also a drama of love which, failing to sustain its height of noon, falls at once to night. (141) The ideal love within the drama is the one existing initially between the hero and Desdemona. Francis Ferguson in “Two Worldviews Echo Each Other” describes the love existing between the protagonist and his wife and how it is an easy prey for the antagonist: When Othello sums up their innocent infatuation, we must feel that he is more accurate than he knows: She loved me for the dangers I had passed, And I loved her that she did pity them. Othello and Desdemona are so attractive that we tend to see them only as they see each other: the noble Moor, the pure white maiden. But Shakespeare shows their love, even here at the very beginning, as dreamy, utterly defensele... ... middle of paper ... ... Giants.
