Reason and Love in A Midsummer Night’s Dream

- Reason and love in A Midsummer Night’s Dream Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is often read as a dramatization of the incompatibility of “reason and love” (III.i. 127), yet many critics pay little attention to how Shakespeare manages to draw his audience into meditating on these notions independently (Burke 116). The play is as much about the conflict between passion and reason concerning love, as it is a warning against attempting to understand love rationally. Similarly, trying to understand the play by reason alone results in an impoverished reading of the play as a whole – it is much better suited to the kind of emotive, arbitrary understanding that is characteristic of dreams....   [tags: shakespeare, athenian law]

Forbidden Love in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet

- Don’t you hate it when something doesn’t turn out the way you wanted it to.

The Tremendous Impact of Egotism, Self-Rationalization, and Societal Expectations on the Construction of the Self and a Tragic Destiny

- Identity is a multidimensional notion; it is the product of a person’s struggle to conform to the expectations of society.

According to Sigmund Freud—the father of psychoanalysis—narcissism is defined as the “state of being the center of a loving world in which the individual could act spontaneously and purely out of desire” (Brown 643)....   [tags: identity is a multidimensional notion, philosophy]
