(III, i, 143-146) In this quote Hamlet knows that Ophelia is spying on him for Polonius and Claudius. This provokes him to say that god gives women one face, but they use make up to paint on another one. This quote suggest that Hamlet sees woman as naive and gullible creatures, as he sees Ophelia as nothing but an object that is owned by her father, as she is helping him with all of his dirty work. Hamlet believes that woman cannot be trusted as they have are deceiving. He also sees Ophelia as a grown women who is unable to make her own decisions.
Polonius betrays his own son, Laertes by sending a servant to go spy on him: “You shall do marvelous wisely, good Reynaldo, Before you visit him, to make inquire of his behavior” (2.2.3-4). He betrays Laertes’ belief in his trust when he is in France. Another way that Gertrude had betrayed the late King Hamlet was by defending Claudius when he was accused by Laertes of killing his father Polonius: LAERTES: Where is my father? KING: Dead. QUEEN: But not by him.
The story The Taming of the Shrew written by William Shakespeare is a tale of how a nobleman tricks a drunken tinker named Christopher Sly into believing he is actually a nobleman himself. Christopher being of nobility watches a play about a marriage of Petruchio and a stubborn shrew Katherina (Kate). Throughout this play there are numerous examples of how Petruchio is abusive towards Kate as he attempts to tame her. Petruchio starves Kate along with being extremely careless when dealing with Kate’s feelings. He is very impolite, immature, and knows the best way to tame Kate.
Hamlet is not justified by treating Gertrude the way he did. Gertrude said that Hamlet has offended his new stepfather by the play that he put on (to find out if Claudius actually did kill the king). After Hamlet hears that his mother is not proud by the way he has been acting Hamlet just goes off on her. Hamlet then says that his mother has offended his real father (King Hamlet) and completely intimidates her. Then Hamlet accuses Gertrude of lustfulness and his mother starts crying and begs him to go.
Proving Gatsby being delusional and stubborn to believe he could reshape the past so that he could relight his relationship with Daisy, even if she married to Tom and also had a daughter. Gatsby being careless as well as delusional puts Tom over the edge because he feels threatened that some random bootlegger, know it all is trying to take away his wife from him.

Besides Claudius, Ophelia may have given the fennel and columbines to Hamlet because he insulted her and also killed her father, which would mean that is Hamlet unfaithful to Ophelia. Ophelia then mentions rue, which is a symbol for disdain. The rue may be intended for Gertrude to insult her because Gertrude thought Ophelia was insane and Gertrude did not take Ophelia’s words or actions seriously. Rue can also symbolize repentance, “There's rue for you; and here's some for me...” (IV.v.205) because of this Ophelia may take some of the rue for herself because Ophelia may regret her relationship with Hamlet or she may be implying that she is going to kill herself. The next flowers mentioned are violets and they represent faithfulness along with loyalty.
Macbeth by William Shakespeare is a play about how greed can demoralize a person. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s minds were corrupted due to their lust for power after hearing the prophecies given to Macbeth by the witches. First or all, Macbeth’s lust for power was apparent when he ordered Banquo and his son’s death. He wanted to ensure his position as king would not be taken, and as the witches stated - Banquo’s sons would be king. The first evidence of Macbeth losing his mind was after he ordered Banquo’s death.
Their ignorant decisions, including my own, caused their unfortunate deaths. I believed Romeo and Juliet’s love had the power to end the quarrel between the two houses. My quest to end the feud blinded my judgment and morality. On Monday night, Lord Capulet, unknowing of Juliet's marriage with Romeo, engaged her with the Count Paris. When Juliet tried to convince her father to cancel the wedding, Lord Capulet threatened to disown her.
Demetrius changes his love twice: Helena to Hermia, afterward it was Hermia to Helena. Lysander changes his love for Helena to Hermia, and next Hermia from Helena rather quickly too. The way Oberon drugs his wife for selfish reasons and never eventually tells her that she had been drugged, shows how unreliable he is with his love. Oberon would be willing to misuse his power to trick his queen into loving a horrible beast just for obtaining something that he wants He even mocks his queen by saying “there lies your love.” (Act IV,scene, Page 79). A few may argue that the love potion that caused many of these confusions, however that’s an insufficient excuse, it’s true that a couple of these events resulted because of the fairies.
It all turns out to be a fraud to get Abigail Williams, the minister’s niece, back together with her ex-lover, John Proctor, and to extract revenge on his wife. When Arthur Miller gives a short composition on why he writes the play, he gives a paradox that seems relevant throughout the play/movie (Core 3: introductory Adverbial Clause). A paradox can best be defined as an apparent contradiction and yet is true. Authors often use paradoxes in their works to make them more
