Often, both characters portray a side that opposes the real meaning of romance. Many would argue that Shakespeare’s lines about love perpetuate its beauty; however, these structures are mainly abused by his own characters. Uttered by Romeo, “Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs,”—this line reveals how his perception of love changes when love is not granted to him. Therefore, it paves the way to the idea that love is often filled with complications and confusions. All in all, Romeo takes the easy way out in order to eliminate the memories of his past lover.
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.’
The plot and characters of Great Expectations all illustrate that love and infatuation are not the same thing, but are inherently different. Although characters and people in real life “fall in love”, they really only scratch the surface of what love truly is. Love at first sight remains a popular trope in fiction and it ultimately portrays love as physical attraction rather than time and care; love is accepting people’s flaws and trying to help them. In the end, people must let go of the simplicity of infatuation and learn to love for more than
Love is one of the most diverse and unexplainable emotions felt by humans. The success of a relationship depends on the capacity to truly love and care for another person outside of ourselves. Two stories by different authors bring up love and how it affects a relationship in a difficult situation. David Foster Wallace’s “Good People” and Ernest Hemingway’s “Hills like White Elephants” both show the diversity of love within a relationship. Wallace does a great job portraying Lane’s internal battle to an honest love with Sheri, while Hemingway depicts a false love expressed between the American and Jig.
Love should be endless, lasting, and pure, but half of the time that love ends up being a sham. There is solid record of this false love- love that is meant to look pure- in the famous writings The Lottery and To His Coy Mistress. In the case of To His Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvall, a not-so-gentle gentleman is trying to woo a “coy” young lady with claims of love. This poem is strewn with hyperbole to the point that it becomes exactly the opposite of love. When there is such over exaggerated praise, it starts to lose the real meaning of the message.
When we love someone we usually mean that we can turn to that person comfortably if all other doors of the world are shut to us. This is the one person that we trust and like to be in company with. In the novel Cyrano de Bergerac, Cyrano loves Roxane more than anyone else but he is shy to tell her so. When he finds out of her feelings towards another character Christian, who she likes because of his looks, Cyrano finds a way to express his love to Roxane. He decides that he would write to her in the name of Christian who comparatively is a poor writer and "wishes to make Christian his interpreter"(II,85).
Both "Lust" and "Carnal Knowledge" examine very brief love affairs. The relationships depicted in each story lack a solid foundation, therefore they cannot last. Power imbalances exist in these relationships that intensify the pain of the protagonists. Both characters initially derive great pleasure from the relationship only for it to slip away and leave them feeling empty and lonely because "After the briskness of loving, loving stops."

Morrison’s use of the phrase “too thick”, along with her short yet powerful sentence structure make this sentence the most prevalent and important in her novel. This sentence supports Paul D’s side on the bitter debate between Sethe and he regarding the theme of love. While Sethe asserts that the only way to love is to do so passionately, Paul D cites the danger in slaves loving too much. Morrison uses a metaphor comparing Paul D’s capacity to love to a tobacco tin rusted shut. This metaphor demonstrates how Paul D views love in a descriptive manner, its imagery allowing the reader to visualize and thus understand Paul D’s point of view.
This is clearly demonstrated by the different situations in which the characters find themselves. The conventional, stereotypical, and almost cliché demonstration of love can be seen in stories A & D, where the characters simply "fall in love and get married". Love is portrayed as effortless, and is a natural, rewarding, and mutual ... ... middle of paper ... ...uld not have been so profoundly shaken by Mary's relationship with James.
