In many literature works, the theme of love is often widely used.
In this essay, the following love stories written by the following authors will be analyzed: Walt Wiltman, Henry James, William Faulkner and Emily Dickinson.
I really didn’t know what Plato was all about, I wondered maybe he must be some kind of mythological God or creature but I surely knew the meaning of love. It is one of the most universal emotions that are displayed by human beings, and it is found in all the cultures of the world.
It can be said to be a feeling which is displayed through strong fondness as well as having a special attachment.
In this short poem Dickinson vows to her heart, calling it a dear friend, telling him that "he" will soon face oblivion.
It is of interest how she pictures the process when she tries to forget the man and remembers all the good associated with him while she is doing so.
The theme of love is very unique in Walt Whitman’s writing.
Being appreciated as a writer of patriotism and democracy, he is seldom regarded as a love author.
It becomes clear that this fight for oblivion is a losing game: HEART, we will forget him! You may forget the warmth he gave, I will forget the light.
The writer then urges the heart to forget this man quickly, as this is the only way to cope with reminiscing him (Lorcher, 2011) Having mentioned all this, it becomes clear that the love story as it is has been often evoked in the English literature.
