Perhaps his writings were a form of self therapy? Throughout his writings and life history there is much evidence to suggest that his poetry was

The historical terms, Victorian Age or Victorian Era, referred to the things and the events that happened during the reign of Queen Victoria in England from 1837 to 1901. Some adjectives to describe the people and things of this period would be prudish, strait-laced, and old-fashioned. Another characteristic of the Victorian society was that many of the upper class individuals were snobbish and that they looked down upon others, especially the lower class individuals.

Midsummer Nights Dream And Love
Midsummer Nights Dream And Love
Midsummer Nights Dream And Love What is True Love? The overriding theme of the play "A Midsummer Night\'s Dream" by William Shakespeare deals with the nature of love. Though true love seems to be held up as an ideal, false love is mostly what we are shown. Underneath his frantic comedy, Shakespeare seems to be asking the questions all lovers ask in the midst of their confusion: How do we know when love is real? How can we trust ourselves that love is real when we are so easily swayed by passion
