After all, the novel sets out to explain the origin of Antoinette’s madness through her own narrative, something she was denied in Jane Eyre. The definition of madness is quite critical in Wide Sargasso Sea as Antoinette is premeditated to lose her sanity due to the original plot in Jane Eyre. There are two types of madness discussed in the novel. The first type is madness as an inherent mental illness. This is carried over from Jane Eyre, and described to be the underlying cause of Antoinette’s madness.
This contrast immediately gives the reader an insight into the torment that guilt and regret can cause. There is a clear definition between Lady Macbeth before and after the murder of King Duncan. This character change emphasizes greatly the theme of the impacts upon a person due to the unnatural acts they have performed. In Lady Macbeth’s case the impact was guilt and regret both of which tormented her to point of serious mental illness, insomnia and ultimately a self induced demise. The author 's intention in bringing a once strong and evil character to the mercy of their own morality is to educate readers upon the impacts that guilt could have upon their own life if they were to perform the unnatural just as Lady Macbeth did.
One example of this is found when the misfit partners take bailey and Wesley away, the grandmother pretends to act devastated and cries out for baily but to the reader’s amusement the grandmother is looking at the misfit the whole time, almost trying to convince him about her lady like virtue of caring of family. By doing this the author brings to attention how dramatic the grandmother is acting and brings insight on how the misfit is catching on to her false ideals. thus this is another foreshadowing trail the author leaves to the reader to anticipate the grandmother
In William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, the deaths of the two title characters are both tragic and beautiful. Much could have been done to prevent their suicides, but these “star-crossed lovers” ultimately are not able to avoid their destiny. A series of unfortunate circumstances result in disaster, and although many people could be to blame for their deaths, Lady Capulet plays a particularly integral role. Lady Capulet is to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death due to her selfish and immature ways of thinking. Lady Capulet holds a strong grudge against the Montagues, sharing this same grudge with the rest of the Capulets.
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know 'st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.” when he finds out that Juliet is dead, but doesn’t know she faked her death. Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man.

In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, guilt can punish people even if they are not caught, which is illustrated with the downfall of the Macbeths. Shortly after killing Banquo, Macbeth starts to hallucinate and says “Hence, horrible shadow! Unreal mockery, hence”(3.4.128-129). This quote shows that Macbeth feels guilt while he is imagining Banquo’s ghost. Macbeth starts to realise that killing
Romeo and Juliet is a tragic play about two enemies kids fall in love. The two kids hid their love from them which lead the kids to their death. There events and characters that cause Romeo’s and Juliet’s death. I think Lord/ lady Capulet , the event when Tybalt wanted to fight Romeo, and also the event when Romeo went to the Capulet’s party were primarily responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because they all could have been prevented. Lord/Lady capulet is responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet because they pressured their daughter Juliet just to get what they wanted for her.
This applies especially to Ophelia who did not demonstrate the presence of own opinion and easily became deranged because of Hamlet’s behavior and father’s death. Some adaptations changed sex of several secondary characters. I would like to keep the ratio the same, but improve personality traits of female characters, especially Ophelia. She would be affected by strange Hamlet’s behavior and the murder of her father, but these events should cause only a nerve breakdown and commitment to mental hospital, not the absurd suicide that happened in the original play. “There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke; when down her weedy trophies and herself fell in the weeping brook” (Shakespeare 130).
This allegorical image draws inspiration from a fact that really happened: a child’s death caused by his drunk mother. In this way, the published and spread engraving not only aims at a moral warn, but also at supporting the Gin Act, a law that came into force in 1757 and whose purpose was to reduce alcohol consumption, a real social evil spread among the working classes. Satire therefore turned from moral criticism into political
Her obvious mental instability made the story difficult for me to read- not because it’s what’s wrong with her, but what’s wrong with professional medical abuse, which especially back then was an ongoing problem in addition to today. I almost wonder if Gilman was trying to speak out facetiously through the story about how mistreatment of the mentally ill is a phenomenon that will continue to take place in the future. Furthermore, Jane was ill, and having been mistreated in her circumstance only made her existing condition and also the unpleasant topic for me worse. Looking at this story with Feminist theory in mind would be fitting, as her husband dismissed her voiced needs because he believed he knew what was best for her and she did not. I interpret this selection of text as sexism; though I’m sure he loved her very much, he was still controlling and believed she couldn’t think for herself for she was a woman.
Out, you baggage! You tallow face.” So she was going to have to leave if she did not get marry to pairs which was what her parents wanted her to do. To sum everything up the people I believe are responsible for Romeo and Juliet death are lady Capulet and Capulet and Friar Laurence. They all played a big role. This play had love and hate.
The first event that would make Lord Capulet responsible is, Juliet was put in a very bad position because of Lord Capulets threats. She decided that she had to fake her death to get out of the marriage with Paris. This would benefit Juliet greatly because she would get out of town and she could live her own life with Romeo. “Hold, then. Go home, be merry, give consent to marry Paris.

In the tragedy “Romeo and Juliet” By william shakespeare, two young lovers lives came to an end at the fault of two people. Theses two people were Juliet and her father, Lord Capulet.
