Some people may look at the story and say it holds immature values. After all, from a very straightforward angle, the story is about two teenagers killing themselves because they cannot have what they want. There is much more to the story, however, and by analyzing its origin. Sappho was exiled as a teenager to Sicily because of political reasons. Sappho was called a lyrist, because she performed her poems with lyre. Sappho wrote poems about love, and most times her poems were directed towards other women.
During the time period, in which Sappho lived, her poems were not considered bad because of the homosexual content she presented. The amount of tenderness, Sappho exuberates in her poetry, shows. The collection contains poems portraying themes of love such as beauty, lust, and estrangement. First published in , these works have remained a popular subject in the world of literature for centuries to come. The love between Rochester and Jane dissolves the constraints of Victorian society where social status becomes of little significance.
Love is the greatest human emotion one can experience.
1 Corinthians 13:13 King James Version (KJV)
In the poem "Leaving the Motel" by W. Snodgrass and "Sex Without Love" by Sharon Olds each poet shares different views on the theme of love. Snodgrass' poem focuses on a couple having an affair in a motel. As they are leaving they go through a checklist to make sure they keep their secrecy. While, Olds' poem focuses more about how people have sex without being in love.
Both of these poems illustrate a strong sense of love in different ways.

One of the most significant relationships, if not the most, is the friendship between Jack Firebrace and the main character, Stephen Wraysford. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
