Even if Lord Capulet thought that Romeo was not going to cause any problems he should have still kicked Romeo out, because he was not invited. Lord Capulet should have been suspicious of how Romeo discovered the party. He wanted to avoid making a scene at his party, but he just had to go up and ask him to leave, fighting was not the only way to get rid of Romeo. Juliet 's father 's second biggest mistake was pressuring Juliet into marrying Paris. At first he wanted Paris to woo her, but after Tybalt was killed he wanted to rush her into marrying Paris to cheer her up.
Hamlet scores the first hit, but didn’t drink from the king’s proposed goblet. Instead, the queen takes a drink from it and instantly died due to the poison. Laertes succeeds in wounding Hamlet, but Hamlet does not die of the poison immediately. Laertes got wounded by his own sword’s blade, and, after revealing to Hamlet that Claudius is responsible for the queen’s death, he dies from the blade’s poison. Hamlet then stabs Claudius through with the poisoned sword and forces him to drink the rest of the poisoned wine.
Gertrude drank the poisoned wine that was meant to Hamlet. After all this happens Hamlet decided to kill Claudius once and for all. Hamlet stabs Claudius with the poisoned sword and then forces him to drink the poisoned wine. Hamlet did not hesitated this time to kill Claudius, because of many reasons. First, he knew that after all his sins he will go directly to hell to pay for all his actions.
Second, Hop Frog wants to avenge Trippetta. Trippetta tries to tell the king that Hop Frog does not want to drink, but the king “pushes her violently from him, and throws the contents of the brimming goblet in her face” (Poe 6). Hop Frog wants to defend his best friend because she has always been there for Hop Frog. Third, the king forcefully makes Hop Frog drink the wine. “He took pleasure in forcing Hop Frog to drink”
Even though Hamlet is passionate about his mother, there is never a direct act from the prince that shows his sudden love and protection for her. Gertrude shows him an act of love by rising for his accomplishments during the fencing match and toasting a drink of wine to him. Unfortunately, that wine is intended for Hamlet’s consumption, and is filled with poison. Gertrude then shows an act of protection when she screams out to warn Prince Hamlet that the wine is indeed poisoned, saying “No, no, the drink, the drink!—O my dear Hamlet! The drink, the drink!
Hamlet eventually accepts this challenge. The duel begins with Osric as referee. Hamlet wins the first two passes, prompting Claudius to resort to the poisoned drink. Hamlet refuses the drink. In his stead, Gertrude drinks a toast to her son from the poisoned cup.
He decided to fake Juliet 's death in order to help her out of her bind and unite her with Romeo in Mantua. For this reason, he gave her “a sleeping potion, which so took effect” (Act 5, Scene 3, Line __) to drink that would keep her in a death-like state for forty-two hours. Meanwhile, he sent a letter to inform Romeo of the plan, but it never reached him. Instead of delivering the letter himself, he gave the letter to Friar John to deliver it. However, Friar Laurence forgot to tell the messenger the significance of the letter.
He killed four men by himself and outsmarted a Sphinx, and became the great king of the city he rescued from her claws. Being the king, when they begged him for help, even though it involved solving a murder that was many years old, he spared no effort trying to outsmart this problem too. It is this investigation into the murder of the previous king that reveals just how blind he has been. All of the irony that is dripping off the lines of this play makes it powerful to its audience. Irony impact’s Sophocles’s Oedipus the King by developing characterization, exposing a theme, and appealing to an archetype.
King Claudius asks Gertrude not to drink the poisoned cup, but Gertrude insists and takes a drink of the cup. Gertrude then offers a drink to Hamlet and he refused. The way the scene goes almost makes it seem like Gertrude knew that the cup was poisoned and wanted to die and escape all that she did. The reader may infer that maybe Gertrude really did regret her decision to marry Claudius immediately after the death of her late husband, King Hamlet. As Hamlet and Laertes go a third round, Laertes wounds Hamlet with the poisoned blade.
When first learn of the planning of Banquo’s murder in act III, scene 1, when Macbeth meets with the two murderers. When speaking of Banquo to the men, he tells of how he can survive while Banquo is still alive, even though Banquo has never wronged Macbeth, but just because he knows of the witches prophecy (Shakespeare, 3.1). This means that Macbeth wants to kill Banquo for just knowing of the future that already came true and no good reason at all. He then goes on to not even tell Lady Macbeth, his wife, of his plan, even though she was in on it with him from the start. In the beginning, “When Lady Macbeth is trying to convince him to do the murderous deed,” Macbeth only becomes convinced to do it after, “she first impugns his courage” (Berquist, 111).
Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her. The friar 's inability to succesfully delivering the letter to Romeo stating that Juliet was alive was a gap that caused romeo to make his harsh decision, but it was too late once he got to the tomb. Upon killing Paris and himself with the poison, Romeo fell beside Juliet, whom stabbed herself once she awoke upon seeing Romeo dead before her eyes. Had Romeo and Juliet respected their families wishes, had they not gone into secrecy, had their relatives stayed out of their love, they wouldnt have blindly caused
Juliet’s tragic downfall began when Romeo killed Tybalt, banishing himself to a lifetime of separation from her. Emotionally demolished by his sentence, Romeo says, “ Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say ‘death’”, indicating that Romeo would rather die than be banished from Verona. Romeo’s banishment by the Prince then causes Juliet and the Friar to come up with the idea to drink a potion that portrays Juliet to be as still as death. Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison.
Even with his fever Alexander the Great was told he had to attend a party and continued to drink. Antipater son found a way to get the poison into Alexander the Great drink as Alexander the Great wine pourer looked away. Then Alexander the Great drank the wine and that’s when, “Alexander cried out from a stabbing pain in his back after drinking a goblet of wine.” Alexander the Great had gotten poisoned, and died shortly after in
As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage,” (3.2.61-65). Despite the Friar’s warnings, Romeo still went along with the marriage. Some may think that Friar Lawrence is a bigger part of Romeo and Juliet’s deaths than Romeo is because the Friar would rather end the Montague- Capulet feud than keep the two lovers together. All in all his plans to end the feud with Juliet drinking the poison fails with Romeo and Juliet dying. This argument doesn’t consider how sad the Friar was when he found out about the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
