The parents’ rivalries caused the lovers to speak in secret and eventually get married in secret. They also planned to run away together, but in the end, both Romeo and Juliet and Pyramus and Thisbe died because they thought with their hearts rather than their heads.

A look into the private affair of Lancelot and Guinevere. Lancelot, King Arthur’s greatest companion. Guinevere the wife of Arthur. Lancelot and Guinevere’s relationship was full of betrayal, death, and sacrifice. Although no one, not even Guinevere was aware, Lancelot was developed a liking to her.
However, Romeo does not know that and therefore is going to Juliet’s tomb to kill himself with her. This creates a very suspenseful tone because all of the audience still wants Romeo and Juliet to live, even though the audience was told from the beginning that they were not going to win. Therefore suspense is all around because nobody wants Romeo to kill himself and everyone is just waiting for Juliet to wake up. Shakespeare also uses this dramatic irony when Romeo is saying that Juliet is the “Paramour” of death, meaning she is having an affair with death. Romeo is only saying this because of how well he thinks death is treating her and her looks.
King Laius and his queen Jocasta received an oracle, delivering some news of a prophecy “it declared that doom would strike him down at the hands of a son, our son, to be born of our flesh and blood, but Laius, so the report goes at least, was killed by strangers, thieves” Jocasta was telling Oedipus about the oracle that she and her husband received long ago about their own son that he would kill his father. But when her husband; the king, died it was reported that he was killed by strangers or thieves meaning the prophecy did not come true. If the report of the murder stated that one man killed the king then the queen would have suspicion, but because it was a group of people she did not give it much thought and thought the prophecies were futile. Denying facts and being ignorant to the truth will not make fate
and he gave her a liquid or poison that put her to sleep but everything would stop she would be cold so everyone would think she would be dead so she wouldn 't have to get married Romeo never got the letters that Frair sent to him and when he heard the news that she was dead he bought poison and when she woke to see him dead she killed her self with a knife next to him . if Frair was not in the story alot would change one way that the story
When King Duncan is on his way to Inverness, Macbeth begins to panic and tries to back out of the plan. It’s not until his wife questions his manhood and belittles him that he agrees to do it. She always shamed Macbeth into feeling like he was less of a man if he didn’t do what she wanted and that’s what was the driving force of the play. Lady Macbeth tells him that he is “too nice” to do what it takes to become king. She ultimately gets what she wants when her husband goes through with killing Duncan, but even then she can’t be satisfied.
The free will of Oedipus’ father, King Laius, to banish his son from his kingdom led to Oedipus killing him and marrying his own mother, allowing fate to play out. In Antigone, the deaths of many characters were due to their own choices. Haemon, son of Creon, makes the conscious decision to commit suicide in order to be with his loved one. Eurydice, wife of Creon, makes the decision to commit suicide when she hears her son has killed himself. Creon unknowingly put these events into play when he made the individual decision to outlaw the burial of Polynices.
In my opinion, most of this violence was kind of Victor 's fault. Victor had promised the creature a female creature to be with him, because the creature was lonely. Victor couldn 't keep his promise and hilled the female creature in front of him. The creature was furious because he killed the only thing that could 've made him happy. The creature stated, 'I go, but I will be with you on your wedding night ' '.
He would rather die a slow and painful death in his cell, then to be unfaithful to Guinevere and love or marry another woman. Ever since the start of their romantic relationship, it was easily seen by the two that they were meant for one another, and that their love for each other is true. In John Steinbeck’s “From the acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights”, when Guinevere was finished talking to Arthur, with Lancelot in the room, she left and Lancelot claims that he saw himself get up and follow
Suddenly she gets a little soft when she sees King Duncan sleeping. She says to her husband, “Had he not resembled My father as he slept, I had done ’t” (II, ii, 12-13). This is a big change for Lady Macbeth because up to this point, we have only seen her as a heartless woman who will do anything for the thrown. Out of nowhere she is compassionate towards King Duncan stating she could not kill him because he looked too much like her father. She still wants him dead but she knows if she did it she would feel guilty for her
Friar Laurence had a vital part in this ill timed death. On scene he was questioned by the Prince and authorities where he gave his full story.

This was the start of the rumors, and they only grew from there. Taylor threatened the princess that if the secret was not kept there would be serious repercussions, in terms of the number of limbs the princess walked away with. However, the princess ended up spilling the beans about trying to fake her death, so that she might marry her love, a poor servant who worked in the kitchens. Hearing this Taylor decided to help the princess
A story always has a purpose; and whether that purpose is to inform, persuade, or entertain is always in the hands of its author. In The Book of Negroes, Lawrence Hill writes to illumine the truth. He writes to honour and remember the chilling history of North America, no matter how gruesome and depressing it may be. With a sweeping tale, Lawrence covers the journey of one particular girl who, despite all odds, survived captivity and was able to escape and tell her story. Even though his novel is fictional, Aminata's misfortune was very much a reality to hundreds of thousands of slaves.
The world plagued with discrimination between race, gender, and sexuality, Rustin Bayard came into play during the 20th century to try and stop it. Albeit there still being major discrimination today, he did make in impact within many people during that period. Rustin is a civil rights activist during the early and middle of the 20th century.

Rustin is commonly known for being Martin Luther King Junior’s advisor during the 1950s through 1960s.
