Impassioned Love and Marriage in Shakespeare’s Comedies Throughout the history of theater, marriage and love have been depicted in several different manners, from a function of duty to country or duty to family, to a choice that can only be determined by the desires of the heart. In several of his comedies, Shakespeare raises doubts about archetypal notions of love and marriage, while still maintaining a thin facade that all would end with a “happily ever after”.
