Love's Labours Lost



Metaphor Analysis

The Princess' Hunt - The princess' hunt for a deer is successful and a metaphor of her success at Ferdinand's court.� The deer is a symbol for the king, and the killing of it the killing of Ferdinand's oath when he falls in love with her.�

The Nine Worthies - Included, not only to provide entertainment for the audience, The Nine Worthies and its mishaps were a metaphor by Shakespeare representing the men trying to win the women's love.� Nothing turned out right in the play, just as nothing turned out as the men intended with the women they loved.�

The King of Frances Death- This symbolizes that like life, the time for making mockery is done.� The men, having broken their oaths, must receive judgement by the women that they love, much like a man must receive judgement by God upon his death.� Also, this represents a shift in the plays mood from merriment to seriousness.� It helps emphasize the importance of honor and trust in love.�
