In the story him and Romeo are cousins and he makes him go to a party where he meets Juliet. “I’ll go along, no such sight to be shown, But to rejoice in splendour of mine own”(Romeo and Juliet 1.2.104). This shows that he should be punished because this is Romeo saying that he will only go because Rosaline will be there. If he would not of mentioned Rosaline going to the party Romeo would not of went. He should also be punished because he tells Romeo that he could meet someone else at the party.
They definitely had their fare share of fate and horrible choices, which played a major role in their ruination. Fate and poor decisions went hand-in-hand in the path of Romeo and Juliet’s demise. Did not mention author or book title or genre. Romeo made quite a lot of atrocious decisions. (1.2.64-95) Romeo is dishonest to the illiterate Capulet servant by taking the invitation to the Capulet party, to which Peter (the servant) said Romeo may only attend if he wasn’t a Montague.
Claudio is characterizes as shallow in this instance because he is only commenting on his adoration for Hero’s beauty. When Don John tricks Claudio into believing Hero is no longer a pure women Claudio says “this is an accident of hourly proof, which I mistrusted not, Farewell therefore Hero!” (ii.1.175-176) One of Claudio’s major attraction towards Hero was her virtuousness, and now that he believes that she is no longer pure he has no desire to marry her. In fact, he wishes to publicly shame her in front of everyone at the wedding ceremony; ruining her chances to have a happy future. Young love is commonly based on looks causing the emotional relationship between the two people to be not as strong; thus causes the relationship to crumble and fall apart. Shakespeare sees this and is warning the audience to be weary of falling into the trap that is young
With all that Edmund had done to their family, you would think that Edgar would not easily accept him back with open arms. Edmund is a true villain with his dramatic and outrageous betrayal. His true villain status is also seen in his redemption with how easily he manipulates his brother into forgiving him. Edmund did horrible things and Edgar forgives him right then and there because of a few speeches from his brother. Edmund, the illegitimate son of Gloucester, is the true villain
The flaws that lead him to the inevitable was his wrath and righteousness. Firstly, Oedipus’s wrath is the main reason why the oracle’s prophecy became true which causes his downfall in the end of the play. When Oedipus was fleeing from Corinth, he became enraged when he got pushed aside. The fury he had within triggered the start of the prophecy. In the play, it stated, “ On the way, he brawls with an old man in a carriage… and in a fit of temper kills him.” ( Sophocles 3) This shows that Oedipus’s anger controlled him and caused him to kill the old man whom, little did he know, was his biological father.
The Reason Behind His Madness Hamlet gets himself into an utterly dire situation as his madness is totally self caused and entirely avoidable. He chooses his own fate when he is wrapped up in the idea of destroying his uncle to avenge his father. The thought of carrying out this revenge drives him to actually become mad and ruin almost all of his ties of friendship and his love for Ophelia. Hamlet’s demise, and the demise of loved ones around him, is self-inflicted and self-destructive. In the play of Hamlet, Hamlet, the main character, is the son of the King that has just recently died and Hamlet’s mother quickly thereafter remarried the Hamlet’s uncle, Claudius.
Much like these individuals, Iago, from William Shakespeare’s, Othello, is truly diabolical. Throughout the play, he commits atrocious acts towards Cassio and Roderigo. Withal, by getting Cassio drunk and stabbing him as well as using Roderigo as a purse and murdering him, Iago exemplifies his contemptible nature and his twisted character. Furthermore, Iago is also truly immoral because of his acts towards Cassio. Iago commits atrocious acts to Cassio in order to attain revenge for not being named lieutenant instead of Cassio.
One thing he sacrificed was his relationship with the Capulets. Their families were already feuding, but Romeo got caught up in the tension and made things worse. By going to the party in the first act of the story, he provoked Tybalt. This later leads to conflict in the story that results in both Tybalt and Mercurio getting killed and getting Romeo banished. Tybalt said, “‘Patience perforce with willful choler meeting.
Macbeth 's downfall comes from his own actions, and despite the effect that his wife 's constant push to take the throne must have on him, it is ultimately by his own hand that Macbeth meets his end. Shakespeare 's portrayal of Macbeth as a tragic hero illustrates the capability of a person to go entirely too far for power. However, the question remains, is Macbeth fully in control of his actions or is he truly insane? If he is not insane at the beginning of the play, does his wife 's invocation of evil spirits make him so? Either way his death is his own fault, but his character seems to beg for a deeper examination of the why rather
In many scenes Hamlet can be seen as insane, this is because he wanted everyone to see that so he can get away with his bad manners/acts such as the crimes he had made. Likewise, due to his father’s death, in which he focused on, he wanted to get revenge and ended up acting abnormal along with being “mad” in the situations of crime. Consequently, Claudius had saw that Hamlet could be dangerous in situations such as Act 3, Scene 4 were he acted upon impulse, and so that’s when Claudius thought of making Hamlet go to England, and he did. Seeing that the relation he had with Ophelia led to her own suicide in the “Murder of Gonzago” is where we can see how his role impacted others. Being that Ophelia loved Hamlet, his role-play did ruin their relation
