Create a 5 pages page paper that discusses courtly love: a comparison to popular music and the means by which modern interpretations of love have changed from that of prior definitions. However, it will be the focus of this particular essay to discuss the means by which a current pop song exemplifies love as compared to the definition of courtly love provided within the extant literature of the medieval period. In this way, this author intends on drawing a level of perspective with regards to whether or not the core understanding and definition of what is love and what is not is more or less the same as it was several hundred years ago or whether culture and our modern society has greatly evolved and differentiated the means by which the shareholder integrates with love. Furthermore, by drawing such a level of inference, it will be possible for the reader to not only see the impacts of the cultural definition of courtly love on the current era but also the level and extent to which the culture of the Canada and the exhibition of popular music has evolved over time as opposed to the older European definitions of love. Seeking to define all of the levels of courtly love would require a dissertation length response. however, for purposes of this brief analysis, the author will define courtly love to be mainly defined by the following aspects: love is always growing or diminishing, a love divulged does not often last, an easy conquest is not worth anything. a difficult one gives a great value to the lover, the true lover is at all times and continually absorbed with imagining the beloved.What is interesting about such a level of definition of courtly love is the level and extent to which even stories such as “Tristan and Isolde” do not necessarily ascribe to each and every one of these determinants.. likewise, in addition to analyzing the song lyrics in question, those of Jason Mraz “I Won’t Give Up”, this brief analysis will also analyze how the story of Tristan and Isolde also breaks some of the norms of courtly love that have thus far been learned in both the literature and the course lectures. With regards to the first determinant of courtly love in which this analysis will integrate an understanding, Tristan and Isolde are exemplifications of the fact that true love is always growing or diminishing. Naturally, within the bounds of the given story, the author has chosen exemplify their love as continually growing and able to take all challenges that might be thrown its way. As such, the characters of Tristan and Isolde break the second norm of courtly love in the fact that their love is rapidly divulged to one another. The extenuating circumstance for this is of course the fact that they have both been put under the influence of a love potion and are not in complete control of their own emotions. With regards to the third aspect of courtly love, the fact that an easy conquest is ultimately worthless, the story of Tristan and Isolde confirms this due to the fact that many trials and tribulations are necessary for the two to ultimately realize the love that their share to be realized (Whittall 4). Finally, with respect to the last determinant that this brief essay will analyze, Tristan and Isolde exemplify the courtly concept of love in the fact that their thoughts are totally and completely consumed by imaging their beloved.
