They had a lot to do with it, Every character in the play had something to do with why the play ended the way it did. There were better ways to handle things. Juliet’s parents could have listened to her and let her be married to Romeo. Juliet could have told her parents or she could have just ran away rather than faking her death. Juliet,” Love give me strength shall help afford.
Juliet is also easily persuaded in her decisions.In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Juliet portrays her tragic flaw as indecisive and unstable. first off, Juliet constantly changes her mind about many events that occur in her life. In the beginning of the play, Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage and simply boys in general. While Romeo all of a sudden brings up the idea of marrying Juliet, she was hesitant about the idea but then exclaimed “Thy purpose marriage send word tomorrow” (2.1.144). Juliet was very fickle about the big picture of getting married so fast, since at the start she didn’t even think of it until her mom brought up the idea.
Rufus claims that his father arranged the sale before he died. Alice gives birth to Hagar, and Dana is relieved because this means that her existence in the present is safe.

If this trust between the narrator and the reader is breached the whole story it can take a different look towards the reader. This would make the narrator become an unreliable narrator, which in turn can add to so much more analytical fun. In Truman Capote’s short essay “My Side of the Matter” is the story of a young man who has recently moved in with his new wife’s aunt-in-laws. It is a story that is under the homodiegetic narration allowing for the reader to understand exactly Mr. Sylvester’s point of view of his situation, or should be say his side of the matter. From the beginning of the text Mr. Sylvester makes it very clear as to his opinion on his wife and her aunts by painting them with his words just as grotesquely as he sees them.
Both Romeo and Juliet and The First Stone come from different genres and time periods; yet readers come off very surprised when they read the two books and find out that they have many similarities in common. Acting before thinking causes regret in the future but everything happens for a reason, and that reason can change your life forever. Acting before thinking can cause ones life to change forever without a reason whereas thinking before acting makes everything happen for a reason. In the play Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers act before thinking and did not think about the consequences in the future and it changes their life.

On page 151, the narrator says, “It is possible to die. Laura thinks, suddenly, of how she- how anyone- can make a choice like that. It is a reckless, vertiginous thought…” After she says this, she goes on to think of what everyone would think of her after she was gone. For Laura, every single decision is made based off of the society around her, but she never realizes that no matter what, if she is truly happy, then the people around her will pick every single thing to ridicule about her until she isn’t happy anymore. The book The Hours answers the question, “what is your happiness worth in society?” by providing different levels of sadness caused by people surrounding the main characters and showing the different ways that they react to those.
Macbeth had many things to motivate him to do his killing from the prophecies, to his wife; However, the realization of becoming king as a whole pushed him to his worst.

After a police writes her a ticket at the café it is then she realized that the date was different from what she had expected and that’s when the game of charades was to come to an end
Romeo was not aware of Juliet 's existence until he went to a party. Friar Lawrence says “Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here! Is Rosaline whom thou didst love so dear, so soon forsaken?”(2.3.65), this shows that Romeo shocked Friar Lawrence with his feelings towards someone other than Rosaline so quickly. Romeo says, “’ll go along, no such sight to be shown, But to rejoice in splendor of mine own.’’ (2.5.104), showing that he fully planned on only looking at Rosaline, and not wanting another lady. This changed very quickly.
Such as lady Montague, her husband, and Balthasar. The reason I think Friar Lawrence should be pardoned is because the whole time he was really just there for Juliet. He was helping her through all the hard times she had been going through since she fell in love with Romeo. Not to mention he had helped to Marry her and Romeo by giving her the vial of herbs to make her appear dead.. I think that he was just trying to bring the family’s together because there brawls were affecting the whole town.
She was soon thrown out however, because John’s wife Elizabeth suspected them of fancying each other. Even though Abby had been sent out on the highroad, she still felt that she was in love with John Proctor. At every opportunity she would try to speak with him and convince him that he loved her too. Proctor however, told her that he would never go down that road again, and his allegiance and love belonged with his wife. This kindled a powerful hatred that Abby had towards Elizabeth that would soon cause much more than a little harm.

!’’ cried my friend, ‘’We were so excited about this!’’ ‘’I know I said, ‘’but you’ve changed my mind.’’ ‘’Look,’’ the mom said, we are turning around, because your friend does not agree with you.’’ ‘’Lame.’’ my friend grumbled. But I knew, even though he would be furious at me, I had made the right decision. After successfully making it to my house again, I sat down and though awile of everything that happened. As concerned as I was with whole situation, I concluded my thoughts, that mazes were without a shadow of a doubt, not my
“The Lottery” employs contrast to effectively deliver the story’s theme while encouraging the reader to question what is acceptable and what is not in one 's own culture. Tessie changed her attitude after the lottery was drawn compared to before the lottery.
