In dramatic literature, there is a lot to go wrong and many blame certain people and others disagree. However, there is one and only one way to describe the catastrophic stupidity that occurred within the pea sized minds of the characters in Romeo and Juliet( underlined). In the play, Romeo and Juliet, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet fall in love. By the same token, another force was at play the ancient family feud. Nevertheless, a violent feud at that which caused many misunderstandings and poor decisions to lead them down the path of blood at the families hands.
How can we compare or judge something that was written in before the 1600s. The people who believe that Shakespeare was a misogynist, there first argument is always about how badly Petruchio treated Katherine. Katherine was a shrew in the beginning, and all he wanted was her to get a bit of a reality check. He was treating her like how she was treating the rest of the world. She had a really bad attitude about everything and always contradicted what everybody said.
The theme of The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald is that the upper class tend to participate in actions that are commonly seen as dishonest, unfaithful, or sketchy. Characters like Nick, Gatsby, Tom and George have twisted views on their own reality due to unfaithfulness and dishonesty. Nick was constantly lied to in the story, for example, Gatsby lied to him about where he got his money. Lies, similar to the one above, gave Nick some twisted views on the reality of his friendship. Gatsby had a twisted view on love due to Daisy marrying Tom right after he left for the war, rather than waiting for him.
When Reverend Parris watched this madness, a whirl of lies and unnecessary blame surrounds the girls. Elizabeth Proctor gets caught up in her husband’s mess when he commits adultery with the ring leader of the girls, Abigail Williams. Arthur Miller's play The Crucible shows that forgiving yourself and others is key in relationships. In the beginning, Elizabeth Proctor’s relationship with her husband John is very awkward. Going against the Ten Commandments back in Puritan times was considered one of the worst things you could do and would have deadly consequences.
In the Shakespearean play Romeo and Juliet, the play is mainly ran by the bad choices Romeo and Juliet make. These many hasty decisions eventually led to the death of the two star crossed lovers. Some of the decisions that will be mentioned here will be: Romeo getting involved in Mercutio and Tybalt’s “duel”, the Friar agreeing to marry Romeo and Juliet, and the two lovers rushing into marriage. To begin, one of the impetuous decisions Romeo makes: Getting involved in Mercutio and Tybalt.“Hold Tybalt! Good Mercutio!” Romeo should have just stayed out of these two “dueling”(although it wasn’t really fighting) because had he stayed out Mercutio wouldn’t have been killed and the law would have caught up with Tybalt for dueling
Lady Macbeth, Kiah and Empress Elisabeth of Austria were seen as crazy for the decisions they made, which were their own internal flaws. Lady Macbeth’s failure was internal with her want for her husband to be king. She talked after the murder, “A little water clears us of this deed. How easy is it, then!”(86-87) Lady Macbeth’s internal flaw based on this quote
(Shakespeare 2.2.144) The quote shown helps it to be seen that Romeo and Juliet going after each other is causing them to make not good decisions. You can see the constant atrocious decision-making, from the past two to the next. Romeo and Juliet continue to make lousy decisions such as them officially getting married. Friar Lawrence speaks to Romeo and Juliet about being “incorporate two in one” before he leaves them “shall not stay alone.” (Shakespeare 2.6.35) From the brief passage from the story, you can see how many bad decisions are being made and how they are adding up, leading towards the tragic end. As can see from reading, the
Bad luck should be to blame for the death of both Romeo and Juliet because of the unfortunate events that were caused by bad luck. First, bad luck borns Romeo and Juliet into feuding families. The families prevent Romeo and Juliet from being together and it leads them to their demise. For example, Romeo & Juliet were born with unfortunate fates as told in the prologue. Chorus says, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life/Whose misadventured piteous overthrows” (Prologue.6-7).
His capricious state of mind and stubborn character, are the fatal flaws that led to the lamentable death of Romeo and his daughter. One may assume that their fate is decided by supernatural powers or the choices they have made in the past. In reality, one’s fate and destiny are determined by countless other components. One’s fate may as well be a story written by someone else, such as Shakespeare writing about the tragedy of Romeo and
Like most plays, they each have a protagonist with a so-called ‘fatal flaw,’ a lapse in character that leads to conflict within the story. For Much Ado About Nothing, the protagonist Claudio is gullible, and believes the lie that his love is unfaithful to him. In King Lear, Lear is prideful, and takes his daughter’s refusal to pour praise onto him as a personal affront. Another similarity between the two shows would be the use of misconception to further the plot. Lear believes that his daughter does not care for him and so takes away her inheritance, while Claudio believes that his betrothed has been unfaithful and so shames her on their wedding day.
