Shakespeare and Love The theme of love runs rampant throughout William Shakespeares classic romantic writing He has been labeled one of the greatest poets of all time Whether he was writing a play or portraying a semi-biographical story it was all expressed through his poetic language Shakespeare is known for his drama in his writing and there is no more important factor to drama than love Poetic language used throughout Shakespeares work adds to the romance and expresses the common theme of love like no other writer could Some of the works illustrating his romance are The Passionate Pilgrim and Phoenix and the Turtle Judging the poems by their names may immediately suggest the theme of love But in reading these works the in depth meaning and feeling of the poems come alive These are not all stories of true fairy-tale love though Shakespeare illustrates the reality of love through tales of betrayal unrequited love and the loss of love as well as the traditional theme of true love All these aspects of love are made clear in his works through the authors writing tools The theme of Love in William Shakespeares poetry is illustrated through characters symbolism and diction The theme of Love in William Shakespeares poetry is illustrated through characters In the first verse of the poem The Passionate Pilgrim the characters are not named but given an identity through plot When my love swears that she is made of truth I do believe her though I know she lies That she might think me some untutord youth Unskilful in the worlds false forgeries Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young Although I know my years be past the best I smiling credit her false-speaking tongue Therefore Ill lie with love and love with me Since that our faults in love thus smotherd be This poem speaks of a man in love
