What happens when you fall in love? In Love's Labour's Lost, every lover must write a love letter. Writing is practically a prerequisite to being in love. Once a character explores the art of love-writing that character must endure the humiliation of either: 1) someone reading your letter aloud to strangers, or 2) your best friends eavesdropping on you and mocking your most intimate confessions. Despite the embarrassment, however, love is a wise and inspirational teacher, whose influence can be most clearly seen in the student's writing.
Reading letters aloud contributes to the atmosphere of romantic tension and influences the characters' actions.
