Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
When Romeo came in to ask Friar to marry him the Friar says that Romeo saw him previously saying that he couldn’t live without Rosaline. Then he instantly thinks that marrying a Montague to a Capulet would end the feud. This decision affects most of the outcome in this play. “To turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” Now the feuding families eventually stopped but only because Romeo and Juliet died. This was mainly because of the Friar.
Jane Austen on Screen " It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighborhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of someone or other of their daughters." This is one of the famous and well known opening lines of the novel Pride and Prejudice by the acclaim Jane Austen. Since 1938 her novels have been adapted to film and television enduring time because of the timeless love stories that somehow captives the audiences hearts time after time. The controversy, the eloquence, the characters and personality of young woman and men falling in love and fighting against a society ruled by money, social status and wealthy legacies.
The other stories belittle marriage and women slightly, while “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is all about a man’s conquest of the women he wants to marry. Without any criticizing or contempt, Irving tells of a school teacher who is tenacious about marrying a student of his. Throughout the entire story, misogyny is not present, which makes me hesitant about calling Irving a misogynist. If he really held those views, why exclude them from one story? Washington Irving’s stories make it seem indisputable that he was a misogynist.
After I have read Miller’s “Death of a Salesman” and Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”, I realize that these two story have something in common considered their main characters flaw. Both plays portray how men are trying to reach a higher social status, and at the same time trying to fulfill their role of being a husband. If we take these messages as our consideration of which play is better, I believe that “Death of a salesman” is a better one. In the play, Death of a Salesman, Willy Loman is a traveling salesman who has a dream of being the greatest and most successful businessman. Unfortunately, his current job is really hard for him to become a successful one as his job is unstable.
He uses he gifts to play women and use them for sex. This is wrong in so many ways and hopefully because this poem has been made famous it will stop other people from doing what he did. And it doesn’t necessarily have to be in the same context, there are many messages here that don’t just have to do with playing women. Don Juan finally learned his lesson when he was thirty years old and hopefully he turned his life around and lived a more fulfilled
The first reason why Friar Laurence is to blame is because he married Romeo and Juliet. After they decided they wanted to get married right away, Romeo and Juliet go to Friar’s cell to get married. Friar first questions the love because Romeo was in love with another women only a few hours ago. He only agrees to marry them because he thinks it will end the family tension. “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; / For this alliance may be so happy prove / To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (II.iii.90-92).
He does this despite not knowing her because the pleasure he experiences from being loved by Juliet keeps him from analyzing the danger of the situation. Juliet agrees to marry Romeo when they see each other again the night they met. The connection between the two lovers is reminiscent of the quote, “Parting is all we need to know of hell” (Dickens) because the two are so drawn to each other that they cannot bear to be apart. “Romantic love is like a cocaine high, except you can come down from a cocaine high. Romantic love is an obsession” (Helen Fisher).
Romeo was deeply in love with Rosaline and wanted to be with her and get married. “For beauty starved with her severity…She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair: She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow…” (Romeo and Juliet 1.1.210-214) Romeo thought that Rosaline was everything he was looking for. Rosaline on the other hand did not care for Romeo, or from what the play tells us. Romeo moved on past Rosaline at a party the Capulets were throwing. If Romeo had not moved onto Juliet many, if not all, characters would have still been alive.
Willie's first affair happens not to long after he gets into his position as Governor, and it is with his secretary Sadie. When this happens Sadie is very happy, but ends up feeling cheated by the other girls that Willie is with and how they get favors by Willie, through his governor status, because she had wasn’t getting the same treatment. She says that Willie is “two timing (her)”(Warren 343) and this is ironic as Stark’s wife is the one who is being two timed by these corrupt politicians. Willie wants to feel loved because his career has taken his wife's love away from him, so he is willing to commit adultery in order to get that pleasure. Willie’s affairs are well known like his other corrupt dealings, but he is getting results so people choose to ignore it.
This is satirical because Fitzgerald uses situational irony to convey the maturity of the social classes. As well, Twain shows that the upper class has superiority over the lower class regardless of the intellectual level or age. “I see it warn’t no use wasting words—you can’t learn a nigger to argue. So I quit” (Twain, 83). Huck is saying that Jim is uneducated and teasing him because of his intellectual level; however, Huck is not too intelligent himself, therefore correcting Jim shows verbal irony.
The Great Gatsby is a story about a man, who climbed his way up to the top with sheer determination and a girl who had an abusive cheating husband whom she did not really love. It is told by a man who is relatively poor, lives next to Jay Gatsby and is a cousin of Daisy’s. The newest movie is quite similar to the book but there are some differences. In the book, there is much more ‘space’ left for the description of the scenes. They appear more lively, more colourful, even when written to be ‘bland, grey, unmoving’ unlike the movie which, to no surprise, expressed the greyness much more.
Claudio and Hero fall into a young love that they fall into easily. However, due to their lack of trust, suspense is built to sustain a plot. Just as the problem arises quickly, the complication is resolved just as simply with the marriage of the young lovers. Throughout the play, the relationship between Beatrice and Benedict serve as a comedic relief. There snarky replies are well crafted such as Benedict’s view on Beatrice’s replies: “she speaks poniards, and every word stabs: if her breath were as terrible as her terminations, there were no living near her; she would infect to the north star.” In the final act, audience find compassion that Benedict and Beatrice hate relationship settles to a love relationship.
Kate and Bianca’s father, Baptista, is a respectable man in pursuit of suitors for his daughters. However like most men, Baptista prefers Bianca’s compliance over Kate’s defiance. During a fight between the sisters, Baptista sympathizes with Bianca to which Kate responds “Nay, now I see she is your treasure” (2.1.31-32). In this society, Shakespeare continues on to portray how Baptista views his daughters as properties that have to be sold off to their next owners, their husbands. Similarly in Act two of The Taming of the Shrew, it can be compared that Bianca’s suitors are bidding for her as though an item up for auction.
