The drama from Romeo and Juliet mainly comes from the complexity of all the different characters in the play. Romeo is seen to be stubborn and loves only Rosaline in the beginning, but once he sees Juliet, he falls in love with her immediately. Also, Romeo is a complex character when suddenly turns vicious and kills Tybalt because he had killed Mercutio. Romeo being an intricate character can be related to some people in the real world who are really complicated and hard to
Bad decisions are something all teens make and they are usually reversible, but the decisions Romeo made were irreversible. In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet , Romeo made bad decisions that affected the whole story. If Romeo had not went to the party, some of the problems that happened, could have been easily avoided. For example, If Romeo just stayed away from the party, Tybalt would not have gotten angry at Romeo and he would not have wanted to kill him. Another reason is that Romeo and Juliet would not have even met if he didn't go to the party.
Hamlet knew that Polonius was spying on him on behalf of Claudius, so he faked his insanity so that Claudius would not see him as a threat and therefore be oblivious to his real intentions. Secondly, Hamlet hides the body and does not tell anyone where it is initially, but he intended to reveal the whereabouts of the body anyway. This action does not make sense, why would Hamlet hide a body he intended to reveal? This lacks logic, and common sense is the basis of insanity. He succussfully portrays madness with lack of logic to his actions in order to keep Claudius from suspecting that he knew of Claudius' guilt for the murder.
He soon makes his insanity known to all his peers who think the reason he is crazy is because he is “crazy in love” with Ophelia who is Polonius, the Lord Chamberlain’s, daughter. Hamlet starts talking erratically and when he speaks to Polonius he calls him names like “fishmonger” and “old fool.” Instead of getting upset, Polonius pushes it to the side because he believes that it is simply Hamlets “crazy” talking. This is one of the ways that Hamlet uses his madness to his advantage. “He seems to use it as a tool or a veneer to act irrationally and assert his opinion about matters without being made accountable for them” (Bali 83-84). However, there is one person that Hamlet speaks rationally to and it is Horatio.
Johnny tried to make himself unlikable by others. He was extremely selfish when he was working on the sugar basin.

Some people think that Johnny should not have joined the sons of liberty.
Although this could be argued as a subtle compliment, although throughout the play this slowly progresses. This reaches a climax when he comes home intoxicated which shows that he expressed his true feelings towards Catherine, “He reaches out suddenly, draws her to him, and as she strives to free herself he kisses her on the mouth.” From the stage directions we can see that Catherine strives to be free which can be argued that she is fighting due to unwanted admiration. This scene was extremely uncomfortable for the audience to view due to realization of Eddie being her uncle. Despite many warnings from Beatrice and Alfieri, Eddie’s blindness is shown as he ignores their concerns. This was considered as a huge turning point in the play, as the action moves towards catastrophe, as his relationship with Catherine plunges from happiness to misery and culminates in his unnecessary
One of the primary reasons Iago is jealous is due to his insecurity and needs to be superior to others. When Cassio is promoted, Iago’s insecurities fuel his jealous rage, which led him to being referred to as a “damned… demi-devil” (V.ii.353). In “Jealousy: Loves Destroyer”, Marano also observes that “a person who is very insecure is not just sexually jealous but jealous of… anything that takes attention of them”. Iago feels like the attention is constantly on Othello and Cassio. Iago plans to destroy them by any means because he did not attain the promotion, and the attention is not on

These two villains slander Othello to the point of eradicating any pity the audience could have developed towards Othello. The Venetians also have a hidden fascination for Othello and his foreign qualities but, they mask feelings with negative slurs. The audience also affected by the portrayal of Othello, and are persuaded to feel pity for him because of his circumstances; being betrayed by his ensign and being looked down upon because of his Moorish descent. Shakespeare also uses racism as a creative apparatus to generate a metaphor between Desdemona and Othello. The exploitation of Othello’s race leads to the manipulation Roderigo, Cassio, Brabantio, the Venetians, and the audience to see Othello as inferior although, the only difference between him and the Venetians is his lineage.
