Can You Love Someone Too Much?

- What a question to ponder. I have tried writing this essay many times and have realized that this is a very difficult topic. “Is it possible to love someone too much?” If you look at the question you first must define what love is and what it means to you before you can determine if it is actually possible to love someone too much. The Webster Dictionary defines love as “profoundly tender, a passionate affection for another person”. In my opinion, to love someone is to care not only about them as a person but also about their well being....   [tags: essays research papers]

Something and Nothing in Shakespeare's Hamlet

-    Can nothing be something. Or can something turn into nothing. Shakespeare would have the reader believe both are possible. A person can be something and "nothing" as exemplified when Ophelia asks Hamlet "What is my Lord?" and Hamlet replies "Nothing."(3.2. 109,111) Shakespeare uses "nothing" multifariously in his tragic play  "Hamlet."  "Nothing" becomes a way for the reader to draw parallels between Young Hamlet, and his slain father.  Young Hamlet's  use of  the word "nothing," consistently borders on the realm of something....   [tags: GCSE Coursework Shakespeare Hamlet]
