By developing conflict within the story, it shows the difference within their society, and advances the idea of the main characters and what to look forward too. “Uncle this is a montague, our foe; a villain that is hither come in spite”As conflict is developed within the story, it overpowers the true meaning of the love story. By the tremendous amount of hatred between the two families, the idea of the two lovers being the main part of the Romance gets lost. When the Mr. Capulet is warned of Romeo’s presence at the ball, the idea of him was never lost, and it impacted a truly important moment for Romeo and Juliet. The conflict between the two main characters is developed to the point that is advances the love
The Greek tragedy “Antigone” written by Sophocles, like any other tragedy deals with the downfall of certain characters and events. As the title suggests, the play revolves around Antigone, and her actions towards her society. Like other Greek dramas, the play consists of a prologue, the episodes and most importantly the Chorus. As we read more of the play and the plot begins to unwind itself, does the role of the chorus make any sense to us? Since the Chorus are there throughout the play, it makes the reader curious to know the role of the Chorus, how it is important to the development of the play as well as the Greek theatre.
The prologue also is very important to have in a play as it establishes the main themes. Shakespeare gives away the ending in the prologue and highlights the key themes which are love, hate and death. In the prologue Shakespeare uses the quotation “The fearful passage of their death-marked love”. Shakespeare uses a metaphor in this quotation. By using “death-marked love” Shakespeare informs the audience that the protagonists love has been shadowed by death since the day Romeo was born, and Romeo was always at risk.
In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, various characters show how pure intentions can lead to deadly consequences. Although the title of the play implies that Romeo and Juliet is a love story, in reality, it is a terrible tragedy.

By intervening in Mercutio and Tybalt’s fight, Romeo’s helpful intention leads to deadly consequences for Mercutio, Tybalt, and himself. When Tybalt insults Romeo, calling him a villain, he is not concerned.
However, their friendship love is tested throughout the play by their pursuit of true love which, in the end, ultimately prevails. The power of true love is evident in the play, the depiction of love reveals its true nature as in its pursuit it causes the characters to become irrational. True love in this play stems conflict from the troubles of romance by the actions of the lovers. The friendship between Hermia and Helena is at stake because of the romantic love that exists between the different parties in the play. Helena mistakes her obsession with Demetrius with love even though he is very rude to her.

Throughout the play, the characters in Romeo and Juliet fail to communicate effectively, even the most eloquent.
Both dear friends of the young Romeo. These two friends, so different in their ways are never found apart, or ever far from Romeo. In this essay the following characters and features will be compared and contrasted: Mercutio and Benvolio, their differences and similarities, how they effected the play, how they participate in the feud. I choose these features because even though they are not “main characters” they still greatly influence the play.
