Analysis: ------------ Busie old foole, unruly Sunne, Why dost thou thus, Through windowes, and through curtaines, call on us?

Oberon: Manipulative or not? What does it mean to be manipulative? Well, in William Shakespeare’s play ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, Oberon and Titania have a big disliking for each other even though they are husband and wife. The thing with Oberon is that he really wants the Indian boy so he can become apart of his crew but Titania won’t allow Oberon to have hi. This is where one realizes how well Shakespeare shows characterization towards Oberon being manipulative because he orders Puck to put the love in idleness flower on someone with Athenian clothing, he used the same flower on Titania while she slept to help him get the Indian boy, and his reaction to finding out Titania fell in love with an ass.
In Elizabethan society, women had to obey their fathers in choosing their future husbands, but we have to realize that Olivia is free to choose her man, because he has no father and no brother. This is a clear innovation which Shakespeare uses to make Olivia feel free, which will be very useful as a literary device to make the plot of the comedy more complicated, and to make Orsino insist to get her favour. In the beginning of the play (Act 1, scene i) we see Duke Orsino listening to his court, which is playing music. He first asks for more music to fill himself with love to feel totally depressed. In this scene music must be interpreted as our emotions; so Orsino wants to find a cure to his depression, and maybe through an excess of love (music) he can kill it.
“My Mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun” Essay In the poem “My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun” by William Shakespeare the author contradicts himself by saying horrible things about supposedly the love of his life. But at the end he says he loves her just the way she is. I think that this is an anti-love poem because he uses many negative words in almost every line of the poem. However, he contradicts himself saying that he loves her. For example in lines 7 & 8 “And in some perfumes is there more delight than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.” He is saying that perfumes smell very good but at the same time he is contradicting himself by saying that his mistress breath smells bad not like perfumes.
The Friar responds with, “Young men’s love then lies/ Not truly in their hearts but, in their eyes jesu maria, what the deal of brine/ Hath washes thy sallow cheeks for Rosaline!”(2.3.68-90). In the first act, Romeo thought himself to be in love with Rosaline. Romeo had been distraught over the fact that his beloved Rosaline was going to become a nun. Romeo would never be able to love Rosoline, or be with her. Friar Lawrence makes fun of Romeo saying that young men only love what they see.
The phrase ‘artificial night’ might suggest that Romeo is always sleeping and barely leaves his room. ‘Artificial’ could mean that his love was unreal so he locks himself out of happiness and sits in his room alone, waiting. Similarly, Keats uses pathetic fallacy to demonstrate the knight’s negative experiences using pathetic fallacy. The passerby describes how ‘The sedge is wither’d from the lake, /And no birds sing.’ The phrase ‘no bird song’ might suggest that he is would like to be dead because ‘birds’ symbolise live and happiness, a bird song is a happy tune you hear thorough-out the day however saying ‘no’ demonstrates that he is no longer interested in happy tunes because of his broken heart. ‘Wither’d’ could suggest that he is that his heart has dried up because the women he fell in love with has left him.
The Sun Rising In John Donne's "The Sun Rising", the lover's bed has been intruded upon by the presence of the sun and the man takes offense at this intrusion. He knows That the sun's presence means the end of their time together and he tries to deny this reality by boasting loudly of a higher reality. First he attacks the sun as an unruly servant, then lectures him on where true royalty and riches lie. Finally, he condescends to "allow" the sun to enter their chamber and warm them, since, after all, they are all that is important in the whole world. However, through all this, the sun continues to shine, silently reminding them of his reality Perhaps the lovers were awakened by the bright early morning sun, or perhaps they never slept as they passed the night together.
He also used his guile on Calypso. After a long stay in Calypso’s “Warm Caves” she was not willing to allow Odysseus to return home. So after Zeus left her without a choice, She came up with the idea of tricking him into insulting her, so that she could make him stay. So she asked him, “How could she be more interesting, more beautiful, than me a goddess?”(V) Odysseus, being the clever man that he is answered her, “My lady Goddess, there is no cause for anger. /My quiet Penelope - whom I know so well, would seem a shade before your majesty.”(V) Odysseus knew that he couldn’t lie to Calypso because she was a goddess, so he told her what she wanted to hear; That she was indeed prettier than Penelope, but notice there was a second issue in her question and he neglected to address it.
The story begins with Young Goodman Brown leaving his wife, Faith, to go on an errand. His wife’s name has a symbolic meaning in this story. Faith symbolizes love, that is love between husband and wife, and it also symbolizes his faith and love that he has for his religion and God. Faith, his wife, warned him not to venture out on this errand because of dreams she had. “ dearest heart, prithee put off your journey until sunrise and sleep in your own bed tonight.
‘I never invited one. Jasmine did. And they always had a very good time… We can’t let an inevitable thing as death stand in the way of enjoying life while we have it. Think how lonesome it’d be out here if we never had anyone’” (Fitzgerald 23). The Washington’s think it’s understandable to invite friends to stay for the summer, then, as August nears, kill them in a selfish act to protect themselves and their estate.
