Emotionally attached to her dead lover, Poe's bride proves her incapability of loving anyone else besides the dead D'Elormie. Citing several valid reasons, Rossetti eschews the decadent dessert while Poe's bride, deafened to reason by society's expectations, ignores Rossetti's arguments, seeks marriage as a panacea, and chokes on her medicine.

Without her superiority and emotional detachment, Pip will not strive in his passionate desperation to attain her. Despite, not having human feelings such as love and compassion, Pip “[loves] her simply because [he] found her irresistible” and declares passionately to be “a part of [his] existence…” (245). His bildungsroman is based on his unrequited love for her, for there will no Pip if there is no Estella.
Regan echoes her sister by saying, 'I find she names my very deed of love; only she comes too short.'

When Lear fears that she cannot love him 'your sistersâ€¦done me wrong/ you have some cause, they have not,' Cordelia demurs 'No cause, no cause.' Here, the spectacle of suffering eradicates past action so that the audience, along with Cordelia, will murmur 'No cause, no cause.' Rather than a resolution of the action, their reunion becomes an emblem of possible harmony, briefly glimpsed before the tragic debacle.
Due to the indecisiveness of her love for both her past and present lover, Daisy’s cynical actions ultimately cause the demise of Myrtle Wilson, Gatsby, and George Wilson. In the novel, Fitzgerald presents Daisy with innocence and purity through the use of her white attire, along with her white roadster, along with the perception of a golden girl, and the perception of a king’s daughter. She lacks vitality and sexual desire, and instead presents herself by appearing very playful, naïve, and childlike. For example she tells Gatsby, “I’d like to just get one of those pink clouds and put you in it and push you around.” (Fitzgerald 98) .Through this imagery, she creates a sense of lusterless, foolishness, and innocence. However, a theme portrayed throughout the novel is that people are not always what they seem.
Only when the narrator tells the history of the couple’s trials and tribulations does one truly understand that even though they are rich in love, they were actually poor. Not letting that stop her she sets out on a mission to find the perfect gift for her husband sacrificing her most valuable possession; her hair. Jim is on the very same mission also, sacrificing his watch to prove how much he loves her. The author of this short story, O. Henry (William Sydney Porter), was known for clever endings, great characterization, facetiousness, and ingenious choice if words. One example of unconditional love and sacrifice is with Della.
Due to Mr. Bennet’s undying respect for his daughter, Elizabeth’s most important argument surfaces when she proves that Darcy is worthy enough to be her husband. Holding Elizabeth to such high regards, Mr. Bennet won’t be satisfied marrying Elizabeth off with just anyone. Saying “your lively talents would place you in the greatest danger in an unequal marriage,” he states how he believes Elizabeth is too special and exceptional to marry someone who is not as equally respectable, amiable, and intelligent as she is. Elizabeth thus explains that Darcy is worthy by stating all of his “good qualities” and explaining how Darcy helped Lydia when she eloped with Wickham. This sheds positive light to all of Darcy’s good characteristics and shows how he would do anything for Elizabeth.
At age eight, she announced that she wanted to be a poet; her mother was proud of her, but her father loathed her even more because of it. In the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God, Hurston shows Janie’s struggle for self-realization through love by all of Janie’s conquests. From her search of love from: the pear tree, Nanny, Logan, Jody, and Tea Cake, Janie finds herself. The symbol of the pear tree relates to Janie’s coming of age, and makes Janie want to find marriage and to see the world. Nanny was dissolving this image by making her marry Logan Killicks.

Although Tryon has difficulty choosing love over status, he ultimately realizes what matters more. He therefore changes from a racist, close-minded man to a more open, accepting individual. Tryon’s prejudiced personality does not present itself until he makes his first trip to Patesville. While courting Rena, he never mentions or speaks badly of a person of color; had he done so, she may have been more cautious. When Rena tests Tryon’s love, asking “would [he] love [her]...if [she] [were] Albert’s nurse”, Tryon joyously replies, “If [she] were Albert’s nurse… within a week [they] should be married” (59).
Mr. Bennet was content that his daughters are happy. This story is a plain example that love can win after all, that you can follow your heart and it will take you through the right direction. Elizabeth teaches us that you can’t judge a book by its cover, because prejudging can make you miss wonderful opportunities and people. We live in a world full of pride and prejudice, but it depends on us if we want to go with the flow or live our lives following our hearts.
