Comparing and contrasting the kinds of love represented by Tellus and Endymion in Lyly’s comedy of errors, Edymion, and the love between Tamburlaine and Zenocrate in Marlowe’s Tamburlaine show similarities where passions drive lovers to capture suitors, but differ in one couple desiring the unattainable, and another taking action to attain. Love is presented in different ways, specifically in Lyly’s play the love is unattainable and unreal, as opposite in Marlowe’s play the love is attainable. Both, couples also have similarities when lovers are driven by their passions. We can judge Tellus by her actions and their consequences. If she loves Endymion, she has a strange way of showing it.

The messages behind them can be based on love and affection but on the other hand can be based on lust and betrayal. Recently I have studied two well known poets' works. These are the work of the stunning Shakespeare and the magnificent Andrew Marvell. These are indeed both love poems however, they are contrasted as they have different meanings to them, one being love, and one being pure lust. To his Coy Mistress is a pure lust one even though in parts may make us think that he is in fact in love with this woman, however Sonnet 130 is a love poem.
To reemphasize, the theme of love is represented through Romeo’s actions, the whole play, and modern art/music. Yet, the immense power of love can cause bad choices and loss of common sense, which could lead to dire consequences. Love can make two people happy, but it can also cause pain. It is hard to understand but one thing is for sure, in a literary world where love falls between two star-crossed lovers, the outcome is never a happy ending.
Love is a necessity in everyone’s life to feel like a hole and sometimes people get mixed up between love and lust. Through out the story the author focused on Giovanni’s point of view and mostly his thinking process. The emotional exchanges between Giovanni and Beatrice start as two variables, which are simply, and pure attraction and they have no deep understanding for each other. Later on in the story, the changes of true love and an emotional attachment due to more communication. The author’s message is straightforward and was about love being complicated and comes in many different forms and in some cases does not always have a happy ending.

Terms like love sick, lovelorn, crossed in love, infatuated, obsessed, spellbound and stuck on are all commonly used to describe someones feelings when they are in love. So does love truly make you crazy? Is it a disease? In psychology, love is a subject quite often interpreted and researched as there are many many different types of loves that psychologists art trying to understand. Some psychologists believe love is a vital part of a human’s life cycle, while others find love to be a nuisance and quite fatal.
Love is a powerful emotion, capable of turning reasonable people into fools. Out of love, ridiculous emotions arise, like jealousy and desperation. Love can shield us from the truth, narrowing a perspective to solely what the lover wants to see. Though beautiful and inspiring when requited, a love unreturned can be devastating and maddening. In his play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, William Shakespeare comically explores the flaws and suffering of lovers.
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.
In past poetry, love and romance has been interpreted in many ways but mainly in a form known as sad and heartbreaking experiences. During the sixteenth century and times before that, many authors expressed love as gloomy and also wrote in the favor of men. Two interesting portrayals of love are in the sonnet “They Flee From Me” by Thomas Wyatt and collection of sonnets “Amoretti” by Edmund Spencer. In these poems, love is described mostly in two opposite ways. While “They Flee From Me” portrays men as the victim to women and their deviousness, “Amoretti” takes an opposing turn from how most poetry of that time wrote about love by celebrating it in a positive and joyful way.
