People say that love is exciting and untroubled, but if you look at real life and true love, there are troubles and down sides. Through out Shakespeare’s play of Romeo and Juliet shows that love will control the lovers and make them do crazy things such as make bad and good choices.

The Role of Love in Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare The role of romantic love plays a central part in the plot of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. The way in which each character embraces the emotion shows a great deal about who they are, as well as the time in which they lived. Love, as defined by Shakespeare's characters, differs greatly from my own definition. However, the changeable nature of the emotion itself is what allows Claudio, Hero, Bene*censored*, and Beatrice to interact in a way that is both comical and entertaining. Perhaps the most obvious of all the differences between my opinion of love and Shakespeare's is the time frame in which 2 individuals grow to develop the emotion.
Explore and compare the romantic relationships in the play; Beatrice and Benedick, Claudio and Hero The theme of love is the fundamental premise in this play. Shakespeare has shrewdly created two relationships intertwining and unfolding throughout the play that contrast with each other dramatically and comically. The story of Beatrice and Benedick takes centre stage in the play and because of there witty and extroverted personalities we immediately warm towards them. Hero and Claudio however are more conservative in nature making their relationship more acute and serious. Both relationships are so diverse they are easy to compare with each other.
I really appreciated the overall theme that love can be absolutely ridiculous. Even though the ending of the comedy was blatant, it contributed to overall comedic approach that Shakespeare was aiming for. I would most definitely recommend this play to my fellow students. For it can give insight into the strange positive and negative aspects of love.
The echoes highlight and augment our knowledge and awareness of the traits and personalities of different characters, especially Orsino and Olivia. The parallels also allow Shakespeare to distinguish between which characters' loves are intended to be comical and which are more poignant. The music which fills the play dictates the atmosphere, be it comical or serious, and allows the important 'sad clown' character of Feste to sing about time and love's impermanence, which become important and stirring as the play concludes.
Shakespeare takes this play and intertwines the many ways love can be expressed and felt and connects it to fascinating truths about human nature and human relationships. He helps readers differentiate honest love from phony love amongst romantic relationships, family relationships, and friendships as well.

His words and themes make the stories vivid and easily appealing to the imagination. He makes it so that you see the play act out in your mind. The use of settings, themes, and characters in the story both create the basis of the differences and similarities in his plays. The two stories that Shakespeare had written, incorporated a major theme – the love between each character and the rest of each plot. Within these stories Shakespeare shows the true nature of love and forgiveness – a never ending battle.
Love is important because it is a universal issue that everyone relates to. Shakespeare cooperates unrequited love, false love, and ill-fated love into Act I to connect different types of audiences. These forms of love create a major theme about romantic love. One of the forms of love Shakespeare indicates is unrequited love. Romeo has fallen deep in love with Rosaline, but he is, “out of her favor where [he] is in love”(Shakespeare.I.i.173).

In conclusion, Twelfth Night is a play driven by love, with the theme of love recurring through out the play. Shakespeare brings out the different kinds of love in various characters, and implants a unique purpose in each character to emphasize and imply the different kinds of love and ideas he wants to introduce to his audience. Several of the characters are bound in love, be it romantic love, self-love, platonic love, love between siblings, or the greatest love of all (Viola’s in this case), we can see it brought out in each character.
This theme would be very poignant and interesting to the people in Shakespeare's time because they were scared of civil war. Nevertheless love is still a very strong theme in Romeo and Juliet. We see lots of different views and representations of love in this play but the only true or real love shown in the play is the love between Romeo and Juliet. I think Shakespeare chooses to do this to show us the strength of their love. The nurse as well as Gregory, Sampson and Mercutio talk a great deal about sexual love and their views of the roles of men and women.
