The Love Story

- The Love Story Some of the elements in the love story have changed over time. In the ancient world and during the Middle Ages, love stories did not have happy endings, and they focused on love outside of social and economic status. This was an innovation at that time, because most marriages were arranged and the partners were of the same social class. Beginning in the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance, love stories began to have happy endings, because marriage was coming to be rooted in feelings of truelove and couples came together by personal choice....   [tags: Love Stories Romance Essays]

Love Story

- I was born into a non-Christian family. We thought we were Christians, because we used to go to church on Sundays. But we didn't know about the Bible verse that says we must be “born again” if we ever want to see the kingdom of God (John 3:3). Even if we'd heard it, we never stopped to think about how we could get “born again”. I got a job in a music store. Christine was a sales clerk there. She was one of the sweetest, most honest people I had come across up to that time. And she was open about being a Christian....   [tags: essays research papers]

Romeo and Juliet - A Great Love Story?

- Romeo and Juliet has been known as the best love story to hit the face of the earth. It is the most known and most talked about Shakespeare play and has become the ultimate classic love story. But is it even all that great. No, I do not think Romeo and Juliet is all that great of a love story. I think that the public who were exposed to the play at the time, which was around the 1600's, had not seen too many other tragic love stories, so they of course loved it. Everybody loves new and original things....   [tags: Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet]

Tragedy and Love Story in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet

- Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, is the tale of two lovers who take their lives for each other when their love is hindered by their feuding parents. After reading Romeo and Juliet, apparently a tragedy, I would say that this story contains aspects of both a love story and a tragedy. The tale of two teenagers who fall in love at first sight and then marry, become true lovers and then risk it all for their love cannot surely be all tragedy. However, it is a tragedy, and has been called that for decades....   [tags: Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet]
