Antony and Cleopatra - Love Story or Tragedy

Essay on the Love Story of Antony and Cleopatra

- The Love Story of Antony and Cleopatra      The tragedy of Antony and Cleopatra can be said to have an overall effect of comical lightness. In this way, it is altogether different from the preceding tragedies, although the tragedy that leads to the death and destruction of Antony and Cleopatra is definitely a matter of choice rather than of circumstances that engulf the hero. Yet, ultimately their tragic ending differs greatly from the ominous feeling of those that preceded it. Antony and Cleopatra concerns itself with typically distressing and grave imagery, most importantly the theme of permanent loss....   [tags: Antony Cleopatra Essays]

Love Is The Underlying Motive Behind A Lot Of Our Actions

- Love is the underlying motive behind a lot of our actions. Love is the reason why we form special bonds with others and why some create a life together. Yet few of us are experts at love.

Still we have an idea of what love is and most would agree that it is more easily experienced than defined. In the short story “Beginners,” Carver fruitlessly attempts to define love through each of the characters’ distinct insight and encounter with love....   [tags: Love, Short story, Marriage, Fiction]
