Explore how aspects of Love and Sex are presented in Much Ado about nothing Love and sex in “Much ado about nothing” are the most important themes in this play because they explore Elizabethan views of chastity and cuckoldry. From this play we can see that they regarded marriage and chastity as being important Benedick and Beatrice create humor through their wit and the way they seem to dislike for each other. The result of this is the positive resolution of their relationship: a declaration of true love, and finally a sincere and very open relationship, all ironically caused by deception. Benedick never listens to peoples suggestions and always ends his conversations with a ‘’jade’s trick’’. He thinks marriage reduces the quality of a man’s life.

A Character Analysis of Ophelia During Act One Scene Three, we are presented with the growing attraction between the young Hamlet, and Polonius’ daughter, Ophelia. However, we learn of this attraction solely through the blunt advice that both Polonius and Ophelia’s brother, Laertes, give heavily. Unfortunately for Ophelia, this advice portrays the young Prince in a negative manner, and possibly deters her from him altogether. Laertes advises Ophelia to treat Hamlet’s love as a “trifling of his favour,” and a “fashion and a toy”. He says that Hamlet’s affections are “sweet, not lasting.” It is unequivocally clear that Ophelia’s brother believes Hamlet is only physically attracted to her, and that any relationship could not seriously last.
In the midst of him leaving Medea, Jason testifies the reason for his actions. In the play Medea by Euripides, Jason recently left Medea for the princess and her wealth. Jason attempts to persuade Medea, conveying his naive and careless actions that effect her. Jason begins his speech by squirming his way out of the responsibility of Medea falling in love with him. Jason says “Cypris was alone responsible,” meaning Medea’s falling in love wasn’t natural but wholly caused by a goddess.
The way the two gentlemen behaved was referred to as Bunburysim which according to Algy it was how it should be called since one of his acts of “Bunburysim” concerned an imaginary friend of Algy’s that always managed to get sick whenever Algy was needed for something. Unfortunately they cannot get rid of their false identities since both women claimed that they could only love someone by the name of Ernest. Things start to go wrong when all of them end up together in the country and their deceptions are discovered, threatening to spoil their romantic pursuits. What makes this play entertaining is a mixture of different techniques that Wilde decided to use. The characters’ behaviour and personality, the theme of deception and pretence, which would be interpreted by the double identities that Algernon calls ¨Bunburying.¨ The dramatic irony is also a very important part in the play, as well as the plot structure and the
An Exploration of the Theme of Love \\ The enjambment in Shakespearean comedy Much Ado about Nothing is considered by many to be a play revolving around the theme of deception. However, love in its various forms is intertwined within this theme and is also a part of this play. Shakespeare took his inspiration for the somewhat involved love theme of the play from various sources. However, the most basic is an ancient one; a lover from the couple is betrayed by an enemy into believing that his loved one is false. In Much Ado about Nothing, these two lovers are represented by Claudio and Hero, and the love which Shakespeare presents between them is meant to be romantic love or love at first sight; in my opinion, this is simply lust.
Much Ado about Nothing was written by William Shakespeare as a comedy, but it could have very well been turned into a tragedy comparable to Othello. In Othello, Desdemona becomes a leading part of Iago’s plot to take down Othello for not giving Iago the job that he wanted. At first Iago insinuates and makes innuendos to Othello that Desdemona is having an affair with Cassio, and Othello doesn’t believe Iago. Othello says “Villain, be sure thou prove my love a whore, Be sure of it; give me the ocular proof; or, by the worth of mine eternal soul, thou hadst been better have been born a dog than answer my wak’d wrath”(3.3.360-364). Desdemona accidentally drops a handkerchief that Othello had given her.
One of the major conflicts in “A streetcar named Desire” is the battle between Blanche’s need for “magic” and illusions, and Stanley’s need to see the world as real, stark, brutal and honest. Explain the reasons why Blanche and Stanley need to see life the way they do and then decide where you consider Williams final view toward illusion and reality lies. Does he align himself with Stanley’s reality and brutal honesty, or with Blanche’s illusion and pretense. In this play William’s has made Blanche a romantic even though she is the play’s protagonist. Stanley on the other hand has a life that is all about gambling, bowling, sex and drinking.
