CHRIS MERCHANT ENGLISH 102 ESSAY TOPIC 1 Courtly Love has survived through the years managing to evolve from Shakespeare to Aerosmith It is safe to say the form through which Courtly Love is expressed has changed in the process of evolution We no longer go around reciting poetry to those we admire or how many people read poetry for the sake of it Rather we demonstrate Courtly Love through the novels music and movies that we read watch and listen to But the heart and soul of Courtly Love still remains in contemporary works Matchbox20 and there current hit song If your gone demonstrates this perfectly It does an excellent job of showing unrequited love which is a major subject in Courtly Love works The song is the story of a man who wants his girlfriend to come back to him after an apparently bad break up These are a few of the lines from the song which help to best summarize the song If your gone baby you need to come home theres a whole lot of breathing room but I can hardly move Another example of modern Courtly Love is the song Crazy for this girl by Even and Jaron It tells the story of a man who loves this girl but the girl has no clue to the feelings he has for her You look at her she looks at me shes got me thinking about her constantly but she dont know how I feel I think that these lines best represent the theme of unrequited love seen in this song The man wants the girl but doesnt know how to get her Billy Ray Cyruss You wont be lonely now is more of the romantic love song Telling the story of a woman who has had her heart broken it prior relationships and how the speaker is going to be the perfect man
