Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing While Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing have the same author they both have similarities and differences in themes. Some people live their life looking for love and never finding it, it is often said that you will find love when you least expect it. Both plays have common beliefs of love, marriage, however, death is viewed very differently. Love in Hamlet is often depressing, even though love is wanted by all. What is the point in loving somebody if they are going to die anyway?
As a hopeless romantic, Romeo loves the idea of love, but the love he is experiencing is pain through his heart. He realizes that, “love, whose view is muffled still,/ Should without eyes see pathways to his will”(I.i.175-177). Since Romeo has only been surrounded by hate he always tries to look for love. And when he found love he never thought that it would be so painful. He mentions that love is supposed to be blind, but it can still make one do whatever it wants.
He does not love her, he loves treating her this way. As a matter of fact, Nora describes his relationship with her best, when she says... ... middle of paper ... ... “[he’ll] be able to find a way to redeem [himself] in people’s eyes”(69). He does not love her, he needs the social support. They have found each other after having being lost for many years, but it is not a romantic reunion. It is a calculation on both of their parts for their own greater individual happiness.
Second she justifies his features as him just being a eunuch, but never really addresses the issue that she is in love with a eunuch who of course would never be able to sexually please her or give her children. Whether "Cesario" is really a woman or if he is a eunuch, the love that Olivia has is futile and unrealistic. When Sebastian, Viola's brother, encounters Olivia for the first time, she believes that this is "Cesario" and gains the courage to ask for his hand in marriage. Once again this is evidence of how blinded by love Olivia is, she believes that Sebastian is the person she is in love with when really he is a stranger and she disregards his comments about not knowing her. Later in... ... middle of paper ... ... more.
Duke however wants love in general because he is in love with the idea of love and is using Olivia as the face to the idea of love even though he has never carried out a true conversation with her. It is seen that these relationships are not considered true love especially when compared with Viola’s love for Orsino. Twelfth Night presents us with a pompous steward who finds himself in love with Olivia, however this love is not true in the case that Malvolio only want...
People do not want to look at the happiness and laughter between two people who share a mutual bond for one another simply because they have not found it for themselves. I believe Szymborska is trying to persuade her readers to try to look at the positivity in life and realize that being in love is one of the most beautiful things one can encounter. Just because love has not made its way in their life, does not mean they will never experience it. It is their faith in love that will result in happiness. I feel like this poem is repetitive in the sense that from ...
Twelfth Night, one of William Shakespeare’s amusing comedies, examines the natural human desire for love. The play showcases a love triangle that explores various types of love. Throughout the play, characters search for love; however, they are under a misunderstanding of the meaning of love. Orisino is the prime example of wasted love where he finds himself infatuated with Olivia only for the purpose of being in love. No direction exists in Orsino’s love other than he only loves Olivia because he likes the idea of being in love with her.
In The Last Ride Together, it is clear that the speaker is eternally in love with the person he is addressing, which actually rejects typical beliefs of the Victorian era, since the Victorians believed in chaste marriage before true love. Browning’s character, however, is not afraid of rejection, but nevertheless gets rejected. Although both these poems deal with a different kind of love—whether it be the kind that is unsure or the kind that is undying—both speakers deal with the concept of rejection. This further signifies a relation between the two poems, because although they have contradicting ideas about life and love, they both end up in the same place, suggesting that neither of the characters has power over his fate when it comes to love. Although The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock and The Last Ride Together differ in that they deal with contrasting ideas about time, they both project similar ideas of love and rejection.
It's almost ironic how Shakespeare's play is often thought of as a story of true love, and not as a tale of two immature youth who believe they hold more than simply infatuation. Shakespeare shows that the love shared by Romeo and Juliet is nothing more than naïve attraction. For instance, (cut here?) Romeo is depressed about being “out of love” meaning the attraction he feels is not mutual, but he instantly forgets about his lovesickness, and the one he was in love with, when he locks eyes with another girl. This means that he never actually had true love to begin with as he first thought.
However, Silvius doubts the old shepherd's authority in such matters, for although Corin admits having been drawn into acts of madness for the sake of love during his youth, he cannot recall any of them. Silvius clearly manifests that if Corin has forgotten even the most insignificant detail of the actions love made him run into, then he has never been truly in love. Even more, Silvius also explains that a true lover never ceases to adore his lady in speech, even if this moves his listener to discomfort, and further explains that sincere love may drive a lover to interrupt a conversation out of passion. To prove this last point, Silvius suddenly interrupts his speech passionately crying the name of Phebe, his beloved, several times. Silvius reflects the behavior of the courtly lover, who is capable of the most foolish actions for the sake of his beloved, and who suffers the pangs of unrequited love and the abrupt separation from his lady.
