  • Love In Our Culture
    634 words
    What is this thing called love This simple question begs for an answer. The symptoms of love are familiar enough. A drifting moodiness in ones behavior and thought, the fact that it seems as though the whole universe has rolled itself up into the person of the beloved, something so wonderful that no one on earth has ever felt about a fellow creature before. Love is ecstasy and torment, freedom and slavery. Love makes the world go round. Until recently, scientists wanted nothing to do with it. Th...
  • Hope And Love As The Highest Virtues
    907 words
    Much has been said about love, but if you search the horizon, you will discover that most of the things written about love are either pithy or cynical. Society in general can be cruel and heartless toward real virtue of any kind. In the most popular venues, love is seldom dealt with with any degree of sobriety. Modern humor mocks marriage, husbands and wives, then glorifies every conceivable breech of virtue, such as sexual immorality, profane and obscene values. Real love is a mystery to most p...
  • Plot Of Arthurian Romances
    483 words
    Writers have reflected the differences in society and individual opinions over many years in their writing by slightly altering the plot of Arthurian Romances to appeal to the interests of their community. Arthurian Romances, at early times, were written with themes of magic and violence whereas legends from later times attributed critical turning points in the plot to the power of love and were more involved, containing a long list of characters. Also affecting the differences in the times are ...
  • Love With Arwen
    781 words
    The Lord of the Rings trilogy is very much more than an adventure story. In fact, J.R.R. Tolkien intended the novels have a greater message regarding the powers of love and truth. These underlying themes run throughout all three books, and nowhere are they more apparent than in the relationship between Arwen, the elf maiden, and Aragorn the human king in the Tale of Arwen and Aragorn. Through them Tolkein shows the reality of love as an ultimately triumphant force that has to endure many trials ...
  • Elements From A Parody And A Romance
    613 words
    Shrek can be categorized as a romance and also as a parody of a romance. The movie contained elements of an actual romance as well as it-parodied characters and situations in a romance. Scatological humor was used religiously throughout the movie to help show the parodied side of the romance. Features of an actual romance in shrek include the lighthearted tone and chivalric love. The lighthearted tone was evident throughout shrek because in the end the bad guy's bad karma caught up with him and ...
  • Love Bloat By Andrew Sullivan
    655 words
    The deception of love is shown throughout the essay "The Love Bloat" by Andrew Sullivan. Despite the knowledge and opinions convincing otherwise, our culture still thrives on love as its hope for happiness, with the persuasion that the only other option is loneliness. The burn that the lonely people feel on days such as Valentines, "if it knocks romance off its Hallmark pedestal" (609), is more rewarding than the lies that drive us in and leave us only to keep searching for something that is not...
  • Actual Definition Of Romance
    344 words
    When I was assigned this topic to write about, I immediately thought of Eros. The ancient Greek word that describes the romantic side of love. Philos and Agape are really more spiritual in nature, but Eros, now that's a physical love. I envision Eros as the sweaty fumbling in the back of old Chevrolet's, and the fire lit evenings where everything seems to go just right and the sex is perfect, And even in the dark, rent by the hour hotel rooms where men and women with no names briefly join and th...
