As being beheaded results in death, banishment just means that he has to move and he will still live. According to Romeo, being away from his love is far worse than dying, which nearly anyone can see is an overstatement. To really paint a picture of what he thinks would be less painful than his banishment, Romeo kindly fills us in on how the scene would take place. He seems to have gone a bit mad at this point saying that he would “...smilest upon the stroke” that would ultimately kill him
I loved to read this poem because it was easy to understand .It was cool when Mr. Molina a Karen read out loud this poem, maybe that is why I loved this story because I was able to imagine them as the characters from the poem. How would you revise your essays if you had more time? If I had more time to revise my essays I would look back to my arguments and check to see if the sources that I used are valid and relatable to my sentence. Sometimes I get writer’s block and so I just whatever comes to my mind, even if it does not make sense. This
“Young men’s love then lies not truly in their hearts,but in their eyes.”(A1, S3, L73) Friar Lawrence lectured Romeo in the world renown play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare . Many people thought Romeo and Juliet were the extreme example of true love, but these teenagers were just infatuated. Infatuation occurs to everyone,but mostly affects adolescents. It causes people to act upon emotions and not think logically. William Shakespeare, believing infatuation was true love , gave many examples of infatuation in the play.
This should make the audience really despise Romeo along with the rest of the characters in the play, but this really is not the case. As a matter of fact, these actions make Romeo more appealing as a character and are important to the overall theme of the play. Romeo kills Paris because he stands in Romeo’s way of getting to Juliet, and being Juliet is the only true love his life he will stop at nothing for her. Even though Romeo murders Tybalt the audience is still able to sympathize with him because it was
Macbeth had took the two men if they didn’t continue with this mission, they weren’t known as men. Macbeth was too insane to kill another man, but instead he hired two men to proceed the job, This leads to the downfall of Macbeth because it’s affecting him, making him lose his mind more than he is. Shakespeare’s message proves that Macbeth is going overboard with this kingly title. Lady Macbeth and Macbeth had a banquet with the lords and Macbeth had seen Banquo’s ghost at the dinner table, thinking it was full but others thought he was going insane and:/ “were the graced of our Banquo present, who may I rather challenge for unkindness than pity for mischance” (Shakespeare 3.4.47-49).Macbeth was starting to believe Banquo was still present but in reality he wasn’t. The decisions Macbeth is choosing to continue with is affecting the way he’s thinking and living his life.
Macbeth growing fear of losing power took over him and he sent murderers to kill Banquo and his son. Yet there was still hope that Macbeth would learn to turn back from these ways, as he had still felt guilt after Banquo’s murder, but he did not. He had only become worse as he became entirely corrupt. Spilling blood, and turning against those who had once praised him. It had gone to the point where his own army only followed him as it was their duty and not because they truly respected and honored
Later in the play, Romeo says that he would have rather been killed than to be away from Juliet, which shows that the crime and punishment worked well by giving him the worst possible, while still humane punishment. Many lives were taken over
When Romeo seeks for Friar Lawrence’s help, in terms of the marriage with Juliet, Friar Lawrence warns Romeo that he is moving too fast and claims, “A young men’s love then lies/Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (II.iii.71-72). Romeo bases his love based on the appearance of a person, instead of one’s inner characteristics. Also, he falls in and out of love easily. When Romeo receives a message about Juliet’s death, he immediately buys poison to kill himself. In addition, he doesn’t ponder the reason for Juliet’s death, but acts emotionally by drinking the poison, which leads to the tragedy.
Not enough to weave a banner with, but enough to keep it from such dogs.” (Miller IV.133), tearing the paper he signs. He rather chooses to die for his integrity than providing false confession. He was controlled by other people before, but this was the time that he got to control his life by himself. Elizabeth says at the end of the play, responding to Hale’s asking to convince Proctor to confess: “He have his goodness now. God forbid I take it from him!” (Miller IV.134) The whole play is led by Abigail and Proctor.
I think that allusions are a great tool for literature. They provide information such as what the character believes in and what society is like to the audience. I think that the Shakespearean audience would have understood the allusions because it is during their time period and they understand what everything is like. Yet, if this play was acted today, I don 't think that all of the allusions would be understood. This is because of how different the worlds are today.
