“The inexhaustible charm that rose and fell”(120) in Daisy's voice captured everyone she met, and held them close to her heart. She had thought she loved Gatsby with all her heart, but she knew things had to change. After the murder of Myrtle, she had to choose between the man she loved, and the man she would come to love. She had to forget about true love and think about her child's need for her father. Tom said he loved Daisy, but “his sturdy physical egotism no longer nourished his peremptory heart.”(20).

Since childhood, Cyrano had been by Roxane’s side. He was the one that she could depend on to be there for her, to play with, and she was there for him¾when he would hurt his hand; she would say “Now, what have you been doing to yourself…” The nature of Cyrano’s affection had always been true, and never for any

In both “Romeo and Juliet” and “Much Ado About Nothing” the fathers and daughters begin with a very strong bond. Through the use of imagery and language Shakespeare shows how important and special each child is too their father. In Act 1, Scene 2 Lord Capulet uses personification to suggest that she is his only child which has survived and his last hope. He says ‘Earth hath swallowed all my hopes but she, she is the hopeful lady of my earth’ This also shows the pride and confidence in his daughter.

Although they are from different worlds, Gatsby falls in love with Daisy is forever mesmerized by her class and beauty.

This expresses Romeo’s love for Juliet, and disbelief that he will not be able to see her again due to his banishment. Anywhere Juliet is, regardless of it’s worth, is heaven to Romeo thus his love and amazement for her. The words “torture” and “not mercy” give off unhopeful and dejected feelings which better expresses Romeo’s hatred towards his banishment. In addition, Shakespeare uses enjambment in his play’s script, “Every cat and dog/And little mouse, every unworthy thing/ Live here in heaven and may look on her/ But Romeo may not,” (III.iii.32-35). The reason for Shakespeare’s use of enjambment is to show that Romeo cannot put forth all his words onto one line.
In this story the wife seems to not be happy with her family and ends up dying at the end. In both the stories both men love their wives very much. In van der Zee’s, Kai stays with Faye after finding out that she can’t have his children, knowing how much had wanted to have kids with her. By him staying with Faye goes to show that nothing can break what they have or feel for each other and that to me is “romantic” or true love. In A Sorrowful Woman “the husband” shows his wife that he “understands” and truly loves her by doing everything she asks him to do.
