Explain and examine the idea of Love as a “force” in Tristan and Iseult and Romeo and Juliet.

Paper Requirements: Your paper must be at least five full pages and no longer than seven pages long. Use standard MLA format. You will use the primary texts Tristan and Iseult and Romeo and Juliet. Please construct a works cited page for the primary texts. This essay is not a research paper but an original thinking exercise.In this paper, you will present a thesis, or main point that you are asserting about your topic. You will then present “evidence” from the texts we have been reading to help illustrate for the reader what you mean. You will carefully construct your essay, remembering the special purposes of the introductory and concluding paragraphs. In between these specialized paragraphs, each topic paragraph will present one idea, develop and explain that idea, and draw a conclusion for the reader about that idea. If you present plot summary, you must use it in illustration of the point you are making. Please remember to “bun,” that is, to surround any quoted text with your own points and explanations and to punctuate accurately around quoted material. Be sure to use parenthetic citation correctly. Use comparison-contrast to structure your essay, and use the alternating or point-by-point method and draw complete analogies in parallel structure. Pay attention to verbs: use the literary present tense where applicable and avoid the passive voice. Proofread, especially for subject-pronoun agreement and avoid using “it.” Make sure all pointing words point to something. A plagiarized paper fails.** Please use any material we have covered in class (“Genesis,” “The Art of Courtly Love,” “Pyramus and Thisbe,” Canto 5 of the Inferno); however, your essay must include major discussion of Tristan and Iseult and Romeo and Juliet.LOVE CONQUERS ALL“Amor vincit Omnia et nos cedamus amori.”Virgil, from the 10th Eclogue
TOPIC 2: Love as Revolution“Running parallel with the tradition of love poetry is a style of thought which argues that obedience, rather than passion is the prime virtue of humankind. Examples of obedience demanded and given are abundant in our scriptures, such as the injunction in Genesis against eating from the Tree of the Knowledge [of Good and Evil]. . . .Alongside the long narrative demands for obedience, stands a counter-narrative and counter-instruction in our poetry, framed in terms of forbidden love and desire. Love challenges obedience; it is one of the precious few forces with sufficient power to enable its adherents to transcend themselves, their fears, and their isolation to such a degree that it is possible to refuse the demands of power. . . . [L]ove is revolutionary, an attempt to tear down the world and build it anew, not in the image of authority, but that of a love that is freely chosen, freely given and freely received. Love rejects the claims of law, property and custom.” (Bryson 3 -9).Examine the idea of Love as a “force” in Tristan and Iseult and Romeo and Juliet. How does this force disrupt society (authority, law, property, custom, religion) in either of these works? How is this force imaged or explained in both works?Use the comparison-contrast technique to explore this aspect of Love.
