When Love and Hate Conquers… ‘Love and Hate’ is the best theme possible for the beautiful piece of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. W. Shakespeare wrote this piece to show what love can do to anyone and to show the inevitable effects of hate that might ruin a human life. Love is represented in the tale by the sacrifices as well as the sufferings of Romeo and Juliet, while Hate is signified by the feud between the Montague family and Capulet Family. The Story started when Romeo and Juliet’s eyes met; the two fell in love with each other that instant. “If I profane with my unworthiest hand: this holy Shrine.
Two of Shakespeare’s most well known plays; ‘Romeo and Juliet’, and ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ are both based on multiple themes of love. Both contain the elements of; love at first sight and love being shallow. Shakespeare’s classic tragedy ‘Romeo and Juliet’ features two young lovers from feuding families who fall in love and are willing to sacrifice almost anything for their love. Whereas the comedy ‘Much Ado about Nothing’, is about two couples; Benedick and Beatrice, and Claudio and Hero, these couple’s love follow the trend of a love is declared, then challenged, and then is finally reasserted in the harmony of marriage. Claudio and Hero fall in love, break apart, and then fall in love again, while at the same time, Beatrice and Benedick are being tricked into loving each other.
This creates the impression that Romeo is saying that he couldn’t live without her. Moreover it creates emotional attachment towards the characters as we learn how they truly love each other. Another example of this is when Romeo says ‘The brightness of her cheeks would shame those stars’. In addition, it also conveys the theme of youth. Romeo falls in love with Juliet after seeing her for the first time.
ROMEO: out of her favour, where I am in love. (ACT 1, SCENE 1) * When Romeo sees Juliet for the first time, he dramatically falls in love with her beauty. When Romeo starts to talk about Juliet, it does not seem rehearsed. Unlike when Romeo was talking about Rosaline it seemed that it was rehearsed. O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
Alternatively, it could mean that their love is so strong that it causes a change to the rhythm of the poem, as it conquers time. “To His Coy Mistress” is similar to this; it’s made up from rhyming couplets like “grow” and “slow” throughout the whole poem, which I think, is because the poem is meant to persuade his lover to sleep with him. The rhyming makes it sound witty and well-constructed; so the woman can understand it more easily and is more likely to want to sleep with him. However, like “Hour”, it contains some half rhyme “lie” with “eternity” and “try” with “virginity”. This is found in the second premise which is aimed at being realistic- the poem starts off with “but”- and the truth is often
This is the 1st most important event in Romeo and Juliet because this is when they first lay eyes on each other. At first Juliet is not so willing to go anywhere with Romeo, for he is coming on quite strong. They compare the meeting to a pilgrim going to meet a saint. Juliet even tells Romeo he is coming on to strong by saying “Ay pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer.” (I,v,101) She speaks this line when Romeo inquires about him kissing her. She tells him that pilgrims do have lips, but lips that they must pray with, not kiss with.
Romeo and Juliet Essay Every person views love in a different way. At times, the way a person expresses their love depends on who they have the emotions for. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Mercutio views love as a joke while Friar Laurence's idea of love is more passionate. Love is shown as a vulgar item when seen through Mercutio's view. “Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down.” (Act I Scene IV) Mercutio believes that love is only about being sexual to one's partner.
Form and formality in Romeo and Juliet- Form- the way in which particular literary works can present a particular genre of writing Formality- to analyse how a given text abides by the conventions of a particular genre/form. Levin discusses how language is used as a vehicle to bring form and meaning together. Romance Genre- When lovers first meet their meeting is formalised into a sonnet providing the audience with light and sensual imagery of Romeo’s pilgrim lips that desire of “tender kiss”. Juliet answers as a lady must to argue such forth right desires to suggest that pilgrims’ lips bets be used in prayer. The form of romance is culminated in a kiss.
3.Presentation of relationships in 'To His Coy Mistress' and 'Ghazal' Both 'Ghazal' and 'To His Coy Mistress' present relationships as self-seeking and manipulative, as the narrators in both poems desire the sexual fulfilment of their lover. In 'To His Coy Mistress' Andrew Marvell uses form for effect. The narrator in the poem is trying to convince his love to have sex with him, and his whole argument can be seen as humorous and playful. One way we see this is through the use of rhyming couplets which are employed throughout the poem: 'Had we but world enough, and time, This coyness, Lady, were no crime'. The extended use of rhyming couplets has a comic effect in this poem as the fast paced rhymes read like a collection of little jokes with fast punch lines.
One story is what we would call “Romance Literature” and the other one is more “Realism”, in one the characters names are given and the other they just go by “the husband” and “the wife.” The way both male characters express their feeling or love to their wives is completely different from each other, although they both do love them like crazy. The story by van der Zee is romance literature because of the intimate scenes and it has a happy ending, because Faye lives happily ever after with the love of her life “Kai”, after all they have been through. I believe the name Faye is a very pretty name and that has something to do why van der Zee used it in a romance story. Unlike A Secret Sorrow, in A Sorrowful Woman the characters names are not given and there are no scenes were “the husband” and “the wife” are intimate. In this story the wife seems to not be happy with her family and ends up dying at the end.
