But the wedding moves up and the plan isn 't updated so Romeo thinks Juliet is dead and kills himself and then Juliet kills herself because she can 't live without Romeo. Love is both powerful and destructive, which allows the reader to see Shakespeare’s belief that love is risky. Shown by the death of two lovers, in the end their love was powerful and strong leading them to kill themselves because they couldn’t bear being apart from one another. Love is powerful because it can cause many resolutions, but also many conflicts. When Juliet
Throughout the story readers can see Mrs. Mallard being characterized through the ironic events. The story says, “And yet she had loved him - sometimes. Often she had not” (8). This shows how Mrs. Mallard cares for her husband but doesn’t enjoy the power he carries over her, which nobody in the story realizes. “She arose at length and opened the door to her sister’s importunities.
Scott Fitzgerald's magnum opus, he plays out several deaths which play a important factor in the plot of the novel. Two significant deaths in The Great Gatsby extremely affected the plot and meaning of the novel. Myrtle Wilson's death caused by Daisy Buchanan jeopardized Jay Gatsby's life. Her mistake created a misunderstanding in the plot of the novel. All in all, Daisy's recklessness started the events that caused great suffering, destruction and distress of many characters.
There was irony using superstition imagery throughout on Mrs Johnstone as she believed the lie that Mrs Lyons told her that “if either twin learns that he was one of a pair, they shall both immediately die”. Yet she realised that she had made a terrible mistake by going against her instincts soon after. Therefore, by the narrator using superstition imagery, it’s reminding her of her foolishness and hence her most costly mistake. Thus the audience know that she is haunted by her past constantly. It sufficed to say that most of the consequences and most of the happenings in the play can be traced back to superstition.
Looking deeply into the geography of the setting in relation to society and class will show Fitzgerald’s purpose of the novel, and deep understanding of the characters. Having the two polar opposite settings provides a dispute throughout the novel. Unfortunately Gatsby is too clouded by Daisy’s beauty to realize what she is really in love with. Daisy wants nothing more than Gatsby’s wealth, which leads to his death. This is an appropriate motif to use because it shows that not everyone is who they seem on the outside, and sometimes things can be staring right in front of a person and they wouldn’t even know it.
In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, he tells the story of two people who fall in love, Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet. Their families have been feuding for as long as they can remember, making their love for one another very dangerous. The two go to extreme lengths to be with each other, but this eventually results in both of them losing their lives. Throughout this story, Shakespeare conveys through his use of syntax and diction with wrathful tone that hatred can make people act irrationally loyal, and this hatred can cloud one’s morals. We first see Shakespeare demonstrate the dangers that come from fighting without proper reason in the very beginning between the characters Tybalt and Benvolio.
It was a terrible decision due to the fact that later on lovers are separated and are miserable without each other. To save their marriage, they try to fool their families, but the plan fails and both of the characters end up killing themselves. While their deaths might have been an effect of their parents’ feud, this story would not be successful due to other complications in their relationships. This Shakespeare’s play has influenced many writers and professors to write their own opinion on the possibility of love at first
In William Shakespeare’s novel, Romeo and Juliet, a seemingly endless feud between the two houses, the Capulets and Montagues, disrupts the city of Verona with their immaturity and unexplained controversy, causing devastating results for Romeo and Juliet’s blooming romance. The events that were caused by revenge and hatred lead the two star-crossed lovers to perform a secret marriage, forcing them to haste their adulthood and allow their fate to decide their ultimate end; dying in despair. In literature, people are often at fault for the outcome of the play. The Capulets’ and Montagues’ feud was not the only reason leading to the catastrophic ending as Shakespeare creates twists in his plays, connecting the characters and events to the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet’s death. Although the conflict began between the two prosperous families, many other characters took part in the play’s disastrous end as well, which will be proven through Friar Lawrence’s senseless decisions and impatience, the Prince failing to follow his own laws, and Capulet’s gruesome parenting.
First, her boyfriend dumps her, then he calls her vulgar names, and lastly, he kills her father. Just one of these traumatic events could make a character go mad, but the combination of the three justifies Ophelia’s madness. The use of these three tragic events in Ophelia’s life makes her madness reasonable. The first event to happen that changes Ophelia’s demeanor is her relationship problems with her boyfriend, Hamlet. In Act III, Scene I of the play, Ophelia says to Hamlet “My lord, I have remembrances of yours, That I have longed long
One of the ways that authors do this is by the belief of the society or group in the story. For example in Much Ado About Nothing Claudio attacked and publicly accused his fiancee Hero of cheating on him the night before. This is a huge deal because by doing this it would hurt her status and even her father’s status in the eyes of the public. This event happened because of the sense of honor Claudio had and it humiliated and embarrassed him and damaged his honor because of him thinking that Hero cheated on him. By doing that a huge conflict was created in the story and multiple characters had to fake that Hero was dead while they find the culprit behind this.
