Kiana Humber Jennifer Taylor ENC 1102 02 December 2017 Love in literature featuring Othello Love is a force that can overtake large adversities and can stumble over small challenges.

As a consequence of fate, love is presented as a powerful force in the play, which supersedes all other emotions, loyalties and societal values. During the course of the play, the besotted lovers are driven by this overpowering emotion to defy their entire social world. The portrayal of love as an overriding emotion in the play is evidenced when Juliet states in resistance to her parents “Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, / And I’ll no longer be a Capulet” (2.2.35). The play greatly contrasts this emotional infatuation to true love and exposes the emptiness and futility of relationships based around lust. The epitome of passion lies in the lovers, who believe they are in unfathomable love but are blinded by their obsession.
