Having love is more powerful than having lust. Lust is something that can be given from anyone but love on the other hand can only be given from the heart. Lust is an intense sexual desire for someone. Love is a deep affection and warm feeling that you have for someone. Lust is seeing a person that looks good and imagining things about that person.
One of the main themes in Cyrano De Bergerac, is love. This play really shows different types of blissful love, but even more types of unhealthy love.

Mostly these types of negative love are between, Cyrano, Roxane, De Guiche/Valvert, and Christian.
What is your definition of love? Whether or not Romeo and Juliet are truly in love is a controversial topic. Some people believe they are truly in love. Others, however, believe they are not in love. Although both sides of this controversy have merit, I believe that the title characters in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet are truly in love because they would die for each other, they went behind their parents’ backs and risked getting caught and they got married so they were committed to each other.
In Racine’s Phaedra, the Phaedra uses many images to describe her love for Hippolytus – her stepson. Love is usually seen as a beautiful and wondrous feeling to be shared with someone else. However, Phaedra chooses imagery that speaks nothing of the positive aspects of love – and everything of the negative. She first describes love as madness, a dark abyss, a burning, and a poison. The unflinching pessimism in regards to this matter help to support one of the main themes in Phaedra: passion is a dangerous thing that must be controlled at all times.
In Wild Oats It explains that a person, over the course of time, comes to realise that his greatest desires of love, are unattainable, and second best things will have to suffice. The central purpose of this poem is to show that love is one of these great desires and despite flashes of promise it contains scarcely anything that is more than fragmentary. Larkin reveals this through tone and diction. Both poets seem to focus a lot on the physical side of love where lust and desire are involved however Abse makes it sound more sensual and even spiritual when he speaks of Eros in his poem. Larkin portrays this sense of objectification in his poem with regards to woman as he describes a woman as a ‘bosomy English rose’ and then follows on to call her ‘beautiful’ throughout the poem portraying the sexual lust involved with love.

In this life there are many types of love, but I feel they can be broken down into a few different types.
Another possible interpretation of Orsino’s thoughts could be seen as him as not being consumed with love itself, but indulging the idea of it. Therefore, he does not necessarily truly love Olivia, but has heard about love and desires to participate in the feeling. This is an example of courtly love, where only by long devotion and much suffering could a man win his ideal woman, where such love was sexless and idealised. In reality, it usually meant that men like Orsino were in love with the idea of love, rather than love itself. Overall, it is made clear that love will be a main theme of ‘Twelfth Night’ as it presents itself within the
This also suggest a longing for a return to the time in her life Nikki thinks was her and her lover’s best love. Even if this means the love comes in the form of sexual intercourse.

This song has a lot of meaning to me and is the best way to describe how there really is a thin line between love and hate. My interpretation of what is communicated through this song is that both lovers feel trapped in this abusive relationship because they are blinded by love.
