This paper answers a series of questions concerning literature. The focus of the paper is on "Hamlet", although there is a definition of romance using Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest." Both the play, "Hamlet", and Mel Gibson's film of the same name are discussed in detail. There is an essay of whether Hamlet is truly insane.

From the Paper:

"Romance is the concept of emotional infatuation with an individual, and attempting to act in a manner that represents the depth of these feelings to that person. To romance someone is to attempt to convey to them how you feel and why these feelings are significant to you. In Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, the characters are driven by the need to romance their prospective partners. However, the scenario in which the romance is set does not allow for these feelings to be expressed in a truthful manner. As both suitors are attempting to convince their intended partners that they are "Earnest," they have the difficult task of showing that their true feelings while also continuing to carry on a subterfuge (Wilde, 1982; 80)."
