In Act 2, scene iii, Shakespeare uses a caring tone in order to create marxian heroism in Friar Lawrence, to show that groundling characters have more heart than the wealthy characters like Romeo’s father. Romeo only tells Juliet about to Friar Lawrence because Romeo trusts more to Friar Lawrence then his father and also he knows that his father will deny the relationship between Romeo & Juliet. For example, Romeo went to Friar Lawrence and says “ Good morning, father” and “ I love rich Capulet’s daughter. I love her, and she loves me. We’re bound to each other in every possible way, except we need you to marry us.”.
In William Shakespeare 's play "The Tragedy of Hamlet" there are quite a few moments that raise questions as to whether Hamlet truly does love Ophelia or if he is just using her. At the start of the play, Hamlet is sending out mixed signals, one second he loves Ophelia then the next second he makes it seem as if he is just using her being rude to her and denying ever loving her. However, throughout the play it is proven that Hamlet is indeed truly in love with Ophelia after all. Hamlet 's love for Ophelia is shown in many ways throughout the play such as when they are alone together and greatly when Ophelia dies. Firstly, in act two scene two Polonius is speaking to Claudius and Gertrude about love note’s and poems wrote to his daughter Ophelia from Hamlet.
Laertes loves Ophelia as a brother, so he gives many suggestions to Ophelia when he knows that Hamlet shows affection toward Ophelia; he keeps telling her that Hamlet is a young prince that his affection is not permanently, which alludes that he is really concerned about the future if Ophelia agrees to be with Hamlet. Hamlet loves Ophelia as a man since he writes a long letter showing his feelings toward Ophelia. In addition, he suffers a lot after he is rejected by Ophelia that “He was pale as his undershirt, and his knees were knocking together.” (Act 2, Scene
In the play Lysander and Hermia have nothing but passionate love for each other. Lysander exclaims “Ay me! For aught that I could ever read,Could ever hear by tale or history,The course of true love never did run smooth. But either it was different in blood” (Shakespeare 1.1 135) Lysander is showing that true lovers do have troubles such as themselves. Lysander is showing his love for Hermia by watching out for their relationship.
One character trait that’s highlighted through Tybalt is Romeo’s complete awe and love for Juliet. While Romeo is single-mindedly focused on love, Tybalt is more focused on pride. When Romeo first meets Juliet he completely disregards their family fued and states, “I take thee at thy word. Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptized; Henceforth I never will be Romeo.” (II, ii, 49-51) Romeo is completely giving up his pride, his family name, and surrendering so he can love Juliet. Tybalt highlights this by disregarding anything that comes in the way of
In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia’s love for Hamlet ultimately leads to her madness. In order for Ophelia to build her relationship with Hamlet, she must go against her father’s orders considering he strictly prohibited her from seeing him. Hamlet then breaks up with Ophelia saying, “I did love you once,” and then tells her to go “to a nunnery,” causing Ophelia to feel a great amount of betrayal.

Throughout the play, Friar Lawrence tries to make decisions that will benefit others, however, his disingenuous methods end up causing torture and pain for those around him. Furthermore, he ends up causing trouble for himself when he admits that “I married them [Romeo and Juliet],” (Shakespeare 5.3.243). Although it made sense to him at the time, his refusal to admit to the orchestration of the marriage of the two lovers before it became too late put him at risk of dire punishment. When he heard word of Juliet and Paris’s wedding plans, his decision to say nothing puts him in greater trouble. That also causes him to attempt desperate measures and to get Juliet to fake her death.
