However, that is not what fate planned for them. Fate determines the course of events in Romeo and Juliet. The story of Romeo and Juliet began before they met. Before even Romeo was banished for killing Tybalt and Friar Lawrence’s plan failed, fate planned out Romeo and Juliet’s lives to be at its mercy. Fate is the puppet master behind closed curtains.
‘Macbeth’s ambition is his only weakness’. Do you agree? Macbeth’s greatest weakness is his ambition, but it is also his greatest strength. Despite his ambition being one of his major weaknesses, it is not his sole weakness he exhibits that contributes to his inevitable death. At the beginning of William Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ the protagonist Macbeth is described as ‘brave’, ‘noble’ and ‘honourable’, however Lady Macbeth’s and Macbeths desire for power consumes them.
For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night”(I.v.44-45). This shows Romeo’s impulsiveness by how he says he loves her, and he hasn't met her yet. Romeo is being impulsive by how quickly he falls in love. This is an obvious example of how Romeo is impulsive. Another time Shakespeare shows Romeo’s tragic flaw is when Romeo and Juliet get married the day after they met.
The story is about a tragedy death of two star-crossed lovers, and how they fell in love falling in love. Romeo starts by going after a girl named Rosalina, and then falls madly in love when the beauty of Juliet. Romeo and Juliet meet at the Capulet’s party, and then fall instantly in love, with each other, and get married in the Friar Laurence office. While Romeo and Juliet physically committed the acts that ended there own lives, the long-stand family feuding and fate should be blamed for their deaths. The long standing-family feuding and fate is ultimately to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths.
William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is filled with numerous irresponsible choices that determine the outcome of the play. Some choices barely affect the outcome of the play, while others are for what the play is known. Of these many pivotal choices, many are made by Romeo. Romeo’s personality and belief in fate are the main reasons for the careless decisions. The highlights of the rash choices are when Romeo kills Tybalt in a moment of rage and when he kills himself because of his true love’s
In Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the children of two rival houses fall in love but were destined to die tragically from the beginning they met. The events causing the death of the star crossed lovers could be traced to Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. Mercutio is the one and only best friend to Romeo. He is very hot tempered, comical, and seems to view life in an unserious manner. He actively teases Romeo about his love life and is the person to stir trouble.
However against this background of civil conflict, something wonderful happens, two young people fall in love. But there is only one problem one of them is a Montague, a dreamy young man named Romeo, and the other a Capulet, beautiful thirteen-year old Juliet. Moreover the play begins with a street conflict between. Where the Prince tries to bring back order by threatening punishment of death to the next person who starts a fight. However Romeo, originally is in love with Rosaline, he is convinced by his friends to attend the Capulet ball where he falls in love with Juliet, and he quickly forgot Rosaline.
He feels hated and ugly for much of his childhood, but after meeting Arthur, he trains his hardest to overcome his appearance and become the greatest knight in the entire world. In most versions in the tale of king Arthur, Sir Lancelot is depicted as a handsome, charming man. But in the once and future king, he is ugly and deformed. This leaves room for much more character development, but he finds this difficult due to his inner contradictions, “For one thing, he liked to hurt people. It was for the strange reason that he was cruel, that the poor fellow never killed a man who asked for mercy, or committed a cruel action which he could have prevented.” (White 339) All of these strange feelings contradicting each other inside him cause him to have a lot of problems growing and changing.
His "raging temper" led to him estranging himself from all his closest friends, and he witnessed as he became "a bane to the people". What separates Beowulf from Heremod is that he has a measure of restraint, and he is both "physically strong and acute of mind"(1843). Beowulf is considered a true hero in the eyes of Hrothgar and others not just because of his ability to kill monsters, but because he subscribes to keeping the peace when necessary. The best heroes do not threaten civilized society during peacetime through needless fighting, but uphold it by being patient and prudent, as Beowulf
Men are supposed to be brave and courageous- they reside in “the male realm of power and politics with, in the eyes of the true-blooded men to whom that world properly belongs ” (Long -64). Similarly, women are shown to be a weakness throughout the play. Lady Macbeth herself even calls upon the spirits to “unsex me here”, to remove her feminine qualities so that she may be filled with the cruelty of man (1.5.40). The characters that ultimately survive until the end are shown as being removed from women in some shape or form, as Michael Long states, “The young saviour, Malcolm, is not only a man but a man ‘yet/Unknown to woman’; the avenging warrior, Macduff, is not only a man but a man not ‘of woman born’” (Long -64). The definition of man that is developed puts the male gender on a pedestal, making them out to be brave and strong, with endless cruelty and few grains of kindness.
Romeo is infatuated because of his passionate and impulsive actions. His decisions to act irrationally brought him harm and later, caused his death. He relies on his passion rather than his common sense to make his decisions. If only he thought about the consequences, he would still be alive. When Romeo met Juliet at the Capulet party, he instantly fell in love with her.
Beowulf was stunningly brave, courageous and put his abilities in the service of others. However, he was too conceited and obsessed about his reputation. Macbeth was a brave warrior, but his Achilles heel, his ambition, turned him into a tyrant. Macduff loved his country and did his best to save it from a tyrant, but at the same time didn’t exercise good judgment in safeguarding his family. Rather than judging people and their actions purely in black and white terms, we should recognize that human beings are complex creatures and have lots of shades of gray.
In William Shakespeare’s tragic play, Macbeth, the protagonist, Macbeth, is described as a very loyal and noble soldier. As the play progresses, Macbeth’s character dramatically changes because of several different factors. These factors influence Macbeth greatly and cause him to make numerous bad decisions. The influence of the witches’ prophecies, the influence of Lady Macbeth, and Macbeth’s blind ambitions
In conclusion, Macbeth desire for power leads him to the wrong path and brings him to the mental deterioration stages. In the beginning of the play, Macbeth is a courageous soldier who fights for his country but his ambition makes him an evil person. Good deeds have good accomplishment but evil deeds have bad consequences. However,Macbeth 's mental decline triggers are greediness, and paranoia caused by murders and guilt.
