In this particular scene Romeo’s haste is revealed whenTybalt kills Romeo’s best friend, Mercutio, Romeo throws caution to the wind and prepares to end Tybalt’s life. Romeo is a very hurried person in seeking revenge as his anger overrides rational thought. Additionally, Romeo shows the same trait when he find his love Juliet in the Capulet tomb, he states, “Here’s to my love! (drinks) O true apothecary, Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die” (V.III.119-120).
Tybalt 's death in Romeo and Juliet is precisely planned on multiples aspects. The reasons that lead to his death also play into teaching the theme behind his character, which can be used to represent anger and what it drives you to do. On the same hand, though, Tybalt is very weighed down by his pride and honor. Taking this into account, it can be argued that Tybalt is written to express the dangers of being hostile and close-minded; as soon as he sees Romeo at the party, for the rest of the play, he is set on his revenge against the member of his enemy family. Being ruled by his set of ideas and emotions and his persistence with these ultimately
He is led by his love for her and believes this will protect him from the wrath of their feuding families. Another example of Romeo advancing the theme is when he kills himself out of grief and desperation for Juliet. When Romeo sees that Juliet is dead, he realizes the only way to be with her would be if he died as well. With this logic, Romeo kills himself. Proving love conquers even death.
He practically confesses his insanity is all for show because he says so and because he tells his best friend, Horatio, not to worry about him whatsoever. Towards the end of act 5, Hamlet again admits his insanity caused his previous actions. Rather this time, it may have been more for saving his life rather than planning to end someone else’s. Before the deadly duel against Laertes, Hamlet decides he should apologize for his actions at Ophelia’s grave and for killing Polonius. “What I have done, That might your nature, honor, and exception Roughly awake, I here proclaim was madness,” he pleads.
To profess their heterosexual identity, boys enact the ritual of performative sex talk. With a profusion of sexual bravado, boys fight to one-up each other in their stories of sexual prominence and prosperity. Pascoe states that “expressing heterosexual desire establishes a sort of baseline masculinity” (87), in part to distance themselves from the feminine identity of a “fag,” but also to establish masculine dominance. These discussions center around how these boys are able to enact their subjectivity and control on the world around them, with women as the objects of their control and puppets of their desires. Furthermore, the masculine dominance is established through compulsive heterosexuality when boys engage in specific patterns of opposite-sex touching.
When Macbeth learns later in the play that Lady Macbeth has committed suicide, he finally decides that he can no longer live with the remorse that is inside of him. He accepts MacDuff’s challenge to a fight, one he knows is not in his favor, and ultimately sacrifices himself for the greater good of the kingdom. This act of self-sacrifice is the climax of the play and is what shows that Macbeth is accepting the responsibility for his
But his plan just ends up backfiring on him, alienating him from the court and getting him sent away. In fact, people become even more suspicious of him. Subsequently, he continues with his thoughts of death in the most famous soliloquy in the play. He asks himself if being alive while suffering is better than being dead, going on to compare death “to sleep / no more- and by a sleep to say we end / the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks / that flesh is heir to! ‘Tis a consummation / devoutly to be wished” (3.1.60-64).
We sometimes find ourself contemplating about who we are and what do we want in our life. As a gay man I have found myself stuck in many places, this is totally normal. We all try to find that perfect life but sometimes it involves barriers. Being wrong and owning up to what you want in life makes the ride easier. Thus being said, I would like to introduce myself with memories that shaped who I am and the struggles that I’ve achieved.

The whole speech we could feel death and painful and he is lacking of h. Compare to live and death, live is much more better than death for Hamlet. Shakespeare expressed his idea through Hamlet about the ultimate decision of his life. it 's such a literal image of what the whole play is about. Hamlet 's basic problem is whether he should live or kill himself.
Though Romeo lacks rational decision making throughout the play, one of the most life-altering irrational decisions made by Romeo is when he let his anger get to him and killed Tybalt. When Romeo’s friend Mercutio has been killed by Tybalt, Romeo then challenges Tybalt: “Alive in triumph - and Mercutio slain! Away to heaven, respective, lenity, and fire-eyed fury be my conduct now, Now Tybalt, talks the ‘villain’ back again that thou gavest me, for Mercutio’s soul is but a little way above our heads, staying for thine to keep him company, Either thou or I, or both, must go with him” (III. i. 116-123).
