The men in both poems truly loved their women in the beginning, but by the end they had become obsessive, drove themselves to insanity, and slept next to the dead bodies of their lovers. God and the Angels played a role in the speakers mind, but in dissimilar ways, and both authors used some personification, one with the storm, while the other with the sea. Ultimately, love, true love, can drive you mad. The speaker in “Annabel Lee” describes his love for her as strong and powerful. He says “But we loved with a love that was more than love.” Their age had no determination on how much they loved each other; “But our love it was stronger by far than the love of those who were older than we.” In Porphyria’s Lover, the speaker describes their love more indirectly by saying she was “murmuring how she loved me.” This is very romantic, though she is still hesitant and can’t say it directly.
Death in Venice Presentation Can you chose who you love? We see some people over obsesses over other people. Is this their choice or is this something that cannot be controlled? People are inevitably controlled by their emotion, love being a strong emotion can control a man who was so strongly disciplined. Aschenbach, a very disciplined man who “began his day with a cold shower over the chest and back; then, setting a pair of tall wax candles in silver holders at the head of his manuscript, he sacrificed to art, in two or three hours religious fervour” (10).

Tyler Rhoades Period 4 English 8 1 March 2012 Comparison of Othello vs. Much Ado About Nothing As a writer, it appears that Shakespeare was a fan of incorporating the the themes of love and heartbreak into his plays. In his play “Othello”, a Venetian general, Othello, is in love with his wife, Desdemona, but is mislead by his trusted friend Iago, and is made to distrust and eventually kill his wife. “Much Ado About Nothing” involves an Italian soldier, Claudio, and his soon-to-be wife Hero, being torn apart by the jealousy of Claudio's acquaintance Don John. Many of the characters in both of these plays can be grouped together in pairs so that, although there are some differences in their backgrounds, their basic roles in Shakespeare's writing are generally the same. The first set of characters, the protagonists, are the main love stories in each play: Othello and his wife, Desdemona, in “Othello”, and Claudio and his fiance, Hero.
The ﬁrst line we hear from Claudio, in Act1 Scene1 is: ‘Benedick, didst thou note the daughter of Signior Leonato?’ From the very start Claudio falls in love with Hero through just one silent meeting, and shows his relative immaturity compared with Don Pedro, and Benedick, when he weeps after hearing of how highly he was praised about how well he fought in battle. To further this theme, in Act2 Scene 1, Claudio isn’t even able to propose to Hero and Don Pedro has to for him, also showing how little he knows Hero, and how ridiculously fast traditional marriages happen, as they were predominantly based on superﬁcial values such as traditional beauty, and social status. Hero rarely speaks around Claudio in the play, and in fact, has the fewest lines of the four main characters. she obeys the commands of her father, and other male ﬁgures without question, and even in the wedding scene doesn’t react enough to insight any doubt in Claudio’s claims. What is more important here about the way Shakespeare makes characters’ voices convincingly emotional,
When he tells his fiancée, Sibyl Vane, that he does not want to see her anymore, she becomes despondent and kills herself. Her suicide gives rise to his guilty and remorseful feelings. He considers her death his fault, and there had to have been something he could’ve done to prevent her death. When Lord Henry hears of Dorian’s culpability, he swiftly saturates Dorian’s head with his philosophies and repudiates anything more of how Sibyl’s death is Gray’s burden to bear and to think of her death as a “perfect artistic representation of undying love” (Wilde 79-89). Although Dorian rapidly surrenders to Lord Henry’s words, the idea that he felt rueful shows that within Gray, there is the capability of
On the day of their wedding Orpheus had played joyful songs because that was the type of man he was. Just as said in The Story of Orpheus and Eurydice “For as the bride, amid the Naiad train, Ran joyful, sporting o’er the flow’ry plain (Garth, 1 A.C.E). Then one day a man named Aristaeus pursued in Eurydice, who had got bitten by a viper and died instantly that day. This is where the love tends to go into the bad route because her husband was destroyed by the death of his one true love and since his wife died he decided to risk his life and go to the Underworld to revive his wife. As he traveled to the Underworld to revive her he had to walk in front of his wife and did not look back until they had reached the upper world.
This story is about love, happiness, and mainly courage to face ones for love. The moral of the story is that bad guys always pay for being bad and that no one can keep secrets forever. For example, when Walter feels that Laura’s life is threatened by Sir Percival and Count Fosco, he decides to destroy them in order to protect Laura. The book starts when Walter Hartright is heading to Limmeridge House, where he is going to teach art, and meets a very mysterious woman all dressed in white. When Walter reached Limmeridge House he met Laura and Marian, and immediately felt in love with Laura.
Her love was unrequited for ‘Homer himself had remarked –he liked men’ and he could not reciprocate her feelings. Homer was a blue collar worker deemed beneath her, yet the only person she associated with. She would spend every Sunday with him and give him clothing and such. This, along with her keeping his body for years, could be deemed an act of loneliness. She saw their relationship as romantic in nature, obvious from the room she kept him in.
The shadow represents sorrow or death. The wall in “The Story of Pyramus and Thisbe” represents their parents never achieving true union with their children. Yet, the wall also represents hope: “… the lovers found the slit and made it/ The hidden mouthpiece where love’s subtle words in sweetest whispers came/ And charmed the ear” (ll. 18-22). Cold, bitter separation for the lovers but, even though their parents forbid them from being together, it only makes the flames of their love burn even hotter, every higher.
