“Love is not so important these days”… “What planet are you from?” love means something different to each character in the play. Discuss In Nowra’s play “Cosi” meaning of love is explored and challenged by the views of different characters. Each character has a clear definition of their personal and distinct understanding of what love and fidelity means. This assists in the notion of love beholding abundance of paradoxical nature. The characters also endorse the importance of love that is practical and realistic, this aspect of the play is illustrated mostly by the mental patients who have issues with distinguishing reality from their illusions.
Both couples also develop a willingness to change for the other’s sake, and both sides learn to consider the other in higher regards than his or herself, resulting in self-sacrifice on both sides, even to the point of death. This kind of love is not dominated by machismo but by a joint effort to uphold each other, and this, Puig argues, is the key to happiness. In both relationships, trust is built up through the act of venting to each other of sufferings and past conflicts. Both couples are very closed up toward the beginning. Valentin would make jokes out of Molina’s movies; Molina even had a mind to betray Valentin for her own sake.
In the play Romeo and Juliet one the first major characters you meet is Benvolio and you learn very quickly that he is compassionate and pacifistic. A trait that Benvolio shows frequently is compassion. After he is finished talking with Montague, Benvolio tries to find out why Romeo is depressed. When Romeo mentions that Rosaline doesn’t love him and that he won’t be able to forget her Benvolio says “I’ll pay that doctrine or else die in debt.” (I, i, 235) This proves that Benvolio is compassionate because he wants Romeo to be happy again and will ‘die in debt’ if he can’t teach Romeo how to forget Rosaline. Benvolio also shows that he is pacifistic.
The most discussed one is Caravaggio’s image. Caravaggio believes that loving someone depends on how smart they are and that is what attracts one person to another. Caravaggio wants Hana to leave with Kip and have a love life with him, but she refuses to leave the English Patient’s side. The English Patient spends the whole time talking in the story and introducing them all to his adventures. Caravaggio believes that Hana loves him for that reason, because “Talkers Seduce, words direct us into corners.” When Almasy is telling his stories, they are all gathered around him and listening without making a sound.
She always wants the best for Juliet that’s why she agrees to arrange the secret marriage of Romeo and Juliet because she wants to make Juliet happy. Friar Lawrence is in loco parentis for Romeo. Romeo is always able to talk to Friar Lawrence when he is having problems or needs advice. Friar Lawrence is more of a father figure to him than Lord Montague. Another type of love is Parental love.
