Not only was he the one who wedded Juliet, but he gave her the potion that led to everyone thinking she was dead, including Romeo. All of these mistakes had easy fixes but the Friar just didn't want to fix anything, "The letter was not nice, but full of charge, and dear import; and the neglecting it May do much danger." (Act 5). Once again, there is an easy fix to this situation, but instead the Friar doesn't do anything about it. If he would have just found Romeo himself, Juliet and her husband would have been living it up in Mantua together.
Romeo made arrangements to marry Juliet the next day he then tells Friar Laurence , “That one short minute gives me in her sight. Do thou but close our hands with holy words, Then love-devouring death do what he dare-”, the friar had warned them on what would happen and the consequences to it but they didn’t seem to care as much because they were in deep “love” with one another. Juliet had drank a poison to put her in a death like sleep. Romeo was told that she was dead and he wanted to die next to her, he buys a poison to kill himself.
The Prince could’ve easily taken whomever involved in the fight and threw them in jail especially Tybalt. If the Prince had threw Tybalt in jail Tybalt would’ve never been able to challenge Romeo because he would be in jail, but since Tybalt was free and roaming as he pleases he then challenges Romeo but Romeo refuses and then Mercutio had stepped up to fight Tybalt. Romeo tries to intervene in the fight but Mercutio still gets killed and later on Romeo comes for vengeance by killing Tybalt. The Prince finds out that Tybalt was killed by Romeo and banishes his from Verona, word had got out and Juliet was informed that Romeo was banished and she
All this time we here what Montresor is thinking and saying but not Fortunato, we know nothing of what he is thinking or even going through. There is much sympathy for a man being punished that we do not know what for. All Edgar Poe lets us know is that Montresor never lets Fortunato what he is mad at him for, and what he knows is that he was at the carnival with his good friend. For Fotunato he is a wine expert attending the Carnival with his friend Montresor and partied in the streets. Knowing Montresor’s plan with the wine, all Fortunato thinks of it as his friend having his back and bringing him a supply of amontillado, while they party all night.
Macbeth keeps the prophecy in mind which gives him no reason to fear, yet takes fate into his own hands by planning to kill Macduff. Shakespeare is showing the readers how Macbeth’s violence has developed; he used to have a guilty conscious over thinking such violent things, yet now, he can effortlessly state that he is going to kill another person. Readers can clearly see that
He should have known that the lady in question was someone’s wife and should have stopped her from the decision she took. Because it can happen to him as a man. But he rather helped the woman perform her wicked plan so Bisclavret will remain a werewolf. His intension was to marry her, so he saw nothing wrong with it. Tristan was banished because his uncle, the king was in love with the queen in the chevrefoil.
All of this could have been avoided if the feud was never created because Romeo would have showed up and Tybalt wouldn't have gotten mad. Then in the end, Mercutio and Tybalt would still be alive. Some may say that it was Romeo's fault for showing up at the party and he was the cause of his own death but if lord Capulet simply told Tybalt to not fight at all, then they would be alive. Lord Capulet pressured Juliet into marrying Paris which created a domino effect with bad things.
Even though Willy Loman did have a tragic flaw, reversal of fortune, and having as his fate being death, his failure to recognize reversal caused by his own actions as well as striving to achieve your "rightful" position in society classified him to be a modern tragic
Although Romeo himself knows he is “fortune’s fool,” meaning he is a puppet of fate, free will is still immanent (ROM. III.i.94). Romeo chooses to go to the party, and then later abandons his friends to see Juliet the same night. In a fit of anger he chooses to kill Tybalt, aware that the Prince made that act punishable by death (ROM. I.i.7294). Juliet chooses to side with Romeo afterwards, over her own cousin. It is hard to argue that Romeo and Juliet choose many things throughout the book, one thing being to get married.
Although Romeo is aware of the feud, he ignores the fact that if a Capulet finds a Montague at the party it will reignite the feud. For example, When Tybalt, a Capulet finds out that Romeo, a Montague is at the party he reacts by challenging Romeo to a duel, which results in Tybalt’s death and Romeo’s banishment. Also at the Capulet party, Romeo forgets about Rosaline and when he sees Juliet. After looking at Juliet once he falls deeply in love with her, disregarding her name of Capulet. Romeo describes this feeling of love at first sight when he says, “Oh, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
(lines 112-113) and the hangman remarks that “[he] did no more than [the townspeople] let [him] do” (117), regarding the murders. Like Niemoller’s poem, the narrator’s fatal mistake was neglecting the option to defy the person in power--in this case, the hangman. If he had simply recognized reached out to his fellow townspeople to band against the hangman, they could have aided each other in the attempt to stop the hangman’s wrongdoings. Instead, he lets the opportunity slip away, and it is in his last moments that he realizes that the hangman’s criticisms of his actions--or rather, lack thereof--all ring true. In the Jon Stewart interview, Yousafzai mentions that people “don’t learn the importance of anything until it’s snatched from [their] hands”.
In the essay, “Escape from the Western Diet”, the author, Michael Pollan discuss about how the western diet is harmful for the people. He think that because western diet is responsible for many kinds diseases nowadays such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, and etc. I agree with Michael pollan that western diet is very unhealthy for people and the reason behind it, is because of the food industry. Food industry is making more processed food and they are also using different kinds of nutritional theories to make new product which is very unhealthy to those people who mostly eats diet food. Medical industries is also responsible for this problem because they make new drug treatment to treat the diseases.
In the poem “Gold” by Pat Mora, symbolism is used to show how unique things are. The narrator is a person and the poem takes place in a desert. The narrator's tone is spiritual. The first example of symbolism in “Gold” is “when sun paints the desert with it’s gold”. This example means the sun’s light is shining on the desert sand.
Within the Second Circle of Hell, the souls of the Lustful swirl about in the wind, swept helplessly through the stormy air. Dante immediately feels sympathy for these souls, because they are basically damned by love. One soul named Francesca, tells to Dante how love was her downfall. Already married, she fell in love with Paolo da Rimini, her husband’s younger brother. One day they could not resist kissing, and Francesca’s husband had the young lovers killed.
