In the story, Viola announced that she loves Orsino. (Act 1, Scene 1, line 40~41), "To woo your lady [Aside] yet a barful strife! Whoe'er I woo myself would be his wife." But because she disguised as man and she knows that Orsino loves Olivia (Act 1, Scene 2, line 34) "That he did seek the love of fair Olivia," so she was afraid of telling the truth. Also, Olivia liked Viola/Cesario, so her mind was complicated. Therefore, this situation becomes a love triangle and made them hopeless love.

Also there was love of D'Artagnan that he sacrificed himself to save Phillipe because he loved him "Even I could give up my king, I could not give up my son." Also, D'Artagnan loved Louis (to Phillipe) "Phillipe, He is your brother." When D'Artagnan says his last word "All for one, one for all," it showed the love of his friends.

In contrast, tragedies, such as the Man in the Iron Mask, are written show history and legends. Both stories are from the same era in the 1600's. Although the both texts are different, it seems that both texts have same meaning to give audience meaning of love.
