Music in film is used at the right time therefore it makes the movie more effective, increasing the romantic in scenes also help character express their sentiment. In a scene that Tom Hanks' character standing on his porch watching the fireworks over the Seattle bay, remembering his wife. The song “ Stardust” resounded with the meaningful lyric, thus it makes the audience understand and sympathize with character. At the beginning of the film, "As Time Goes By" is used as a symbol that predict a love story of 2 main characters.
Summer, played by Zooey Deschanel, is the new girl with a strong sense of independence and a mind of her own. In a twisting of the stereotypical gender roles, Tom admires Summer from afar while she does her own thing. When she is questioned about her single status, Summer wittily responds by saying, “You don’t believe that a woman could enjoy being free and independent?” ((500) Days of Summer). Combine a true-love, soul-mate-searching male with a female who declares that “There’s no such thing as love, it’s just a fantasy” ((500) Days of Summer) and everything commonly known about “love” is challenged as the audience follows the “relationship” of Tom and Summer. In a Shakespearean tragedy-like fashion, the audience already knows how the story is going to end.
Towards the beginning of the play A Mid Summer Nights Dream Lysander states that ‘the course of true love never did run smooth.’ Throughout the play along with the love song ‘Wild Horses’ by U2 we learn that love does not always make sense, that love is about emotions rather than rules and that love can cause us to both laugh and cry. Both the play and song use sophisticated language techniques that helps the audience understand certain emotions and believe certain truths about love. Love is about emotions rather than rules therefore can be unpredictable and can be chaotic. This is shown through the characterisation of Hermia. Hermia is in love with Lysander despite the Athenian rules.
One of the biggest cinematic elements used which helps create the beautiful love story in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is music. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (the song) by Henri Mancini plays every time the audience catches the two protagonists have a jolly time together.

I am in my favorite summer dress, and although I keep bumping into people every other second, there is nothing I can do to get the smile off my face. Just the experience of walking around Times Square seemed like an experience that only could be in a dream. It doesn’t take long to find; I see the marquee from up the street. I want to run, but I don’t want to get hit by a passing car. As we get closer, I can see the posters.
The phrase "twice shy" seems to have been taken from the age-old proverb Once bitten, twice shy, and we are consequently led to expect that the characters in the poem have had a bitter experience in the past and are now attempting to recoup. The phrase is such an appropriate expression to describe the tumultuous feelings, emotions and attitudes that run through the mind of an adolescent in love. The central idea behind the poem is simple: a girl and a boy, presumably adolescents, go out for a walk on a cool, spring evening. However, their good upbringing forces them to move cautiously, to "preserve classic decorum" and to abstain from publishing feeling. Heaney masterfully intertwines the poetic elements of time and setting to provide an accurate description of the characters' thoughts.

The iambic pentameter pronounces the dancing nature of the daffodils hence, the reader, lost in his rhythm and imagery feels as if they too were fluttering and dancing which brings great pleasure. ‘And then my heart with pleasure fills, and dances with the daffodils’. The figures of speech used, for example ‘Fluttering and dancing in the breeze”... “Tossing their heads in sprightly dance”... “Out-did the sparkling waves in glee”... bring pleasurable images to ones mind of our natural environment and in this case dancing daffodils.
The Role Played by Nature The Storm and the Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin In these two stories, nature symbolizes happiness to the main characters. In the case of Calixta and Alce, a storm enables them to meet in the absence of Calixta's husband it reignites their emotions and desire for each other.

The whole poems started during the time woman were tending to stay quite. She wrote the poem to express her opinion of a female’s voice in the society. She speaks in a worthless tone.
