People may argue that Hamlet only acted like he loved Ophelia, but I feel that he truly did have feelings for her and his vengeance got in the way of their love. Although Hamlet was cruel to Ophelia at times Hamlet truly did love her, yet he hid his feelings from her very well because he was afraid of being betrayed by the women he loved. Unfortunately for them, this led to Ophelia’s suicide. By the time that Hamlet could act on his love, it was already too late. I do not feel that Hamlet ever stopped loving Ophelia, but Hamlet caused a break in their relationship that could never be fixed.
Although, she’s passionate about reading and writing, her poems reflect Narcissus’ selfish mentality. Narcissus falling “in love with his own reflection” proves his self- absorbedness. In the story “The Face in the Pool” he rejects Echo’s love by saying he’d “rather die” than let her love him. His egotistical manner emotionally hurt Echo, and lost himself an opportunity to love someone who would also love him back. He did not benefit himself or anyone.
They say, “Love can be dangerous in the wrong hands.” In the poem, “My Last Duchess”, that statement is a fact. All that the woman ever did was smiled at the things that made her happy, but her husband felt as if she gave him the same attention as she would a stranger. He wanted to feel special and since she could not give him that extra attention that was needed, he decided to have her killed. He also took upon himself to tell the father of his new wife, what had happened to his last wife. He basically was informing the father that if his daughter does the same as his last wife then she would be killed as well.
Edgar is also blind to what Edmund is telling him. Blindness is a common theme and occurrence in the play. Characters in King Lear become blind from their pride, by being gullible, and due to their vulnerability. Lear's blindness towards his two daughters, Goneril and Regan, is shown in Act 1, Scene 1, when he is splitting up his land amongst all of his daughters. Goneril and Regan both lie to Lear and tell him that they love him so much, when really all they want is his kingdom.
Over time, their love faded before completely falling apart, this was signalled when Titania was too proud to give over an Indian boy. “Ill met by moonlight, proud Titania” (act 2 scene 1 line 60) angered by his wife’s stubbornness, he gets his servant Puck to cast a spell over Titania, this spell made her love the next thing she saw who was bottom, a craftsman. Whilst under this forced love affair with Bottom, a lower class mortal, she learned how to love and was so distracted she gave Oberon what he wanted, the Indian boy. Titania becomes so obsessed that Oberon takes pity on her “…her dotage now I do pity…” (Act four, scene one, line 45) and asked for puck to take off the spell. Once her spell was taken off her she knew the value of love and realised she really did love Oberon.
How I wish you’d died there, killed by that strong warrior who was my husband once.”(3. 480-483) In contrast, the Troy counterpart was grateful that he made the less popular choice of keeping himself alive by cowering away from certain death. She even praised him that he ran away, not to save his skin, but ‘for love’. Achilles wins eternal glory by explicitly rejecting the option of a long, comfortable, uneventful life at home for one of hardship and adversity. This means test of judging character extended itself even to the gods.
He says, “It is a common thing to have a foolish wife." (line 304, act 3, scene 3). In addition, their ignorance makes them love their husbands blindly. This blind and ignorant love leads them to an early grave when their husbands murder them. Moreover, Desdemona and Emilia are loyal to their husbands.
This affects him as he could not give priority to his responsibility as a soldier because he thinks that he loves her so much more than his war mates. Such ideas would keep Cross’s friends in danger as he would only care about his safety and not his war mates and the importance to win the war. Cross’ irresponsibility behavior has caused a very big effect as it killed his friend Ted Lavender. This could be seen in a verse in paragraph 10 in the short story. “He pictured Martha’s smooth young face, thinking he loved her more than anything, more than his men, and now Ted Lavender was dead because
He doesn’t do anything but just wait for things to happen. For example, He expresses his anger at the entire family for just sitting around and waiting for Addie's death. And in a moment of fierce tenderness he thinks to himself, "It would just be me and her on a high hill and me rolling rocks down the hill at their faces...until she was quiet..." His wish to be alone with his mother is seems fairly selfish, but turns out to be the closest thing to love that is found in the novel. Jewel's description of the family as buzzards waiting for Addie to die turns out to be fairly accurate. In a sense all of the Bundren's except Darl and Jewel were buzzards who used Addie's death to feed their own desires.
She loved her father dearly despite the fact that he was a tyrant and forced her into spinsterhood. She viewed her father in an adoring way, ignorant of his faults. She viewed the all the men in her life with a rose in her eyes. Emily was in love with Homer. Her love was unrequited for ‘Homer himself had remarked –he liked men’ and he could not reciprocate her feelings.
