Othello says to her “It gives me wonder great as my content to see you here before me. O my soul’s joy!” (2.1.199-200). These beautiful and loving words are soon changed to hostility and rage with the thought of Desdemona’s betrayal. Both Desdemona and Hero are accused of being unfaithful through presented “ocular proof”, they are both disgraced by the leading male role, and they are young and inexperienced in the ways of love and both women are extremely forgiving after they have been mistreated by their suitors. 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.
The men are supposed to be sick with love, vehement about it, and so sweet a woman would have to accept his advances. The woman’s role is very much a broad, sweeping statement. This allows for the notion that women are property to be claimed to run as the undercurrent to the courtly love system. This is evident in the way that Arcite and Palamon, Theseus, and even the Gods force Emelye into a marriage she wants no part in. The Knight tries his best to maintain a noble and romantic air to his story but the tale itself contradicts that.
But how it flashed upon her, if he could do something worthy to have won her – be a hero, her hero—it would be even better if he had done it before asking her; it would be grander. Besides, she believed in the war from the beginning” (Howells 372). At the very beginning one can see Editha’s desire for a hero. In her mind she sees a young man fresh from battle surviving only for her. She maybe imagines
Hero is also deceived at the masked ball, when Don Pedro woos her on Claudio’s behalf. “I will assume some disguise and tell fair Hero I am Claudio” Is what Don Pedro says as he is about to aid Claudio on his quest for love. This was an important scene because it showed the audience that Claudio and Don Pedro are truly good friends and it also showed that Claudio really was in love with Hero. Don John tries to trick Claudio into believing that Don Pedro was wooing Hero for himself, but Claudio does not fall for this trickery when Don Pedro swears the truth. The next two acts of trickery are two of the most important scenes in the play- the overhearing scenes.
Explore and analyse the love/relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth In Shakespeare’s play Macbeth there is a very strong loving relationship between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth, in which Macbeth trusts Lady Macbeth with his life. In the beginning Lady Macbeth seems caring just wanting the best for her partner but really she is deceiving doubtful of him and wants power, tacking over and controlling Macbeth and his decisions. “They met me in the day of success, and I have learned by the perfectest report they have more in them than mortal knowledge. When I burned in desire to question them further, they made themselves air, into which they vanished. Whiles I stood rapt in the wonder of it came missives from the king, who all-hailed me 'Thane of Cawdor,' by which title, before, these weird sisters saluted me, and referred me to the coming on of time with 'Hail, king that shalt be!'
Sir Lancelot does this through out the story of “Sir Lancelot du Lake” he calls ladies, “My Lady” (Malory, The Tale of Sir Lancelot du Lake). Also treat them better than the way you treat your friends. If you are married, show your partner how much you love him/her. A knight in the middle ages fought in tournaments in honor of their ladies (Eastwood). They also entertained their ladies with poetry, songs, and stories.
Because the poem is in the form of a dramatic monologue, the reader only shares the conversation of the Duke. Through his speech the Duke wants to show certain aspects of his character, which he does. He wants his audience to know he is a man with status and to be regarded highly. We know this as he is proud of his ‘nine-hundred-years-old name’, and expected his late wife to have respected and rated this, although she did not. However, the effect of this speech leads the Duke into
But the "monster" actually evolved for positive reasons. Throughout our primordial past it discouraged desertion by a mate, bolstering the family unit and enabling the survival of the young. At the same time, it has pushed us to abandon philanderers—and many a futile match—in favor of more stable and rewarding partnerships. Jealousy can even be good for love. One partner may feel secretly flattered when the other is mildly jealous.
It shows this in certain quotes that describe and show off a character’s personality. It shows conflict that will unfold later on in the play and things that characters say display their personality and relationships with other people. In this scene Othello defends his love for Desdemona and why she has fallen in love with him, as her father believes he has used charms and spells to seduce her. Othello reveals to Brabantio that Desdemona fell in love with his stories of war and his differences to anyone she has ever met. This shows Othello and Desdemona’s devotion and commitment to each other and gives the audience an insight into the character of Othello and his origins and life of war.
In "Beginning of the Songs of Delight", Papyrus Harris 500 demonstrates fanciful love through "…apportioned to you is my heart,/ I do for you what it desires,/ when I am in your arms" (lines 1-3). In Shakespeare's "Othello", the Moor and Desdemona declare their love for one another, at the protest of her father and the disbelief of the councilmen (Act I, scene iii). Their romantic love was unrealistic because of their age difference, and fanciful because she was intrigued by the stories of heroism and daring that he imparted to her. Passionate love is, by definition, ruled by intense emotion and marked by intense feelings as is expressed in "My body thrives, my heart exults/ At our walking
