According to the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare the awareness that a deed is immoral is what makes fulfilling the deed evil. Nothing an animal does can be seen as cruel because their actions are purely instinctual, mankind is unique in that we have free will and sense of right and wrong, which means that we are the only species capable of true cruelty or evil. Although the three witches admittedly had a great amount of supernatural foresight as well as a significant part to play regarding Macbeth’s decision to murder the king, the extent of their actual power or control over Macbeth’s actions and fate is debatable. Before the character of Macbeth is introduced, he is said to be
This is because in the beginning he blindly agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet later bringing consequences in the play. Friar Lawrence is guilty because he gave the potion to Juliet and from that event and forward events started taking a horrible twist. All in all, the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare reflects the reality of love and its consequences and it also teaches us to not fool with young love or you can have consequences in your
Fate is the only thing that one could blame for this tragedy. says to Romeo, “These violent delights have violent ends”. This is foreshadowing both Romeo and Juliet’s death by saying that the heavens have given Romeo a blessing, but every delight must come to an end. As Friar Lawrence tries to help Juliet, he could come to make things worse instead of better. His plan has many complex situations that could lead to having a bigger problem.
Romeo and Juliet is often viewed as a very romantic and tragic play. However, there are many other lessons and ideas Shakespeare has implanted inside it. In Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare examines how abuse and isolation from one’s family has a negative impact on oneself through the use of harsh diction and imagery. In Scene 3, when Juliet refuses to marry Paris, Capulet exclaims, ““Hang thee, young baggage, disobedient wretch! My fingers itch.” (3.5, 166-170) Capulet's tirade language towards Juliet elucidates the flawed relationship between the Capulet family.
Romeo's Decisions in Romeo and Juliet Leads to Death Humans are able to make their own decisions and actions throughout their entire life. In the play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo makes irresponsible actions and decisions holding him accountable for the heartbreaking end to the play. The protagonist of the play, Romeo, has dreams that give him messages. Romeo ignores the dreams and makes his own decisions, which leads to his death and also Mercutio's death. In addition, Romeo lets his emotions guide himself throughout the play, instead of thinking about the situations his emotions cause reckless actions to take place, which soon takes his life and Juliet's life.
Together these facts validate that impulsive decision can lead to the harm of others and themselves. During the famous play Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare established the idea that using decisions based on emotions such as grief and anger, can lead to unthoughtful and poor decisions. Like how Romeo decision to kill tybalt overall lead to his and Juliet's death. If Romeo were to stand back and look at the bigger picture Romeo and Juliet could be together without any
Some things happen that we have absolutely no control over. Some things we can prevent from happening. And some things are solely our fault or someone else 's. In Shakespeare 's “Romeo and Juliet”, the death of both Romeo and Juliet is arguable on who 's to blame for their death. The death of both of them was caused by the Montagues and Capulets.
Blame is the belief that a person or inanimate object is responsible for any outcome whether it be good or bad. People often resort to blame to fill the idea that they were not the cause of the outcome but someone else. The quote from the book It’s Not My Fault: The No-Excuse Plan for Overcoming Life’s Obstacles “ We live in a culture of blame. People will blame anyone or anything for their misery sooner than take responsibility to own it and make it better.” written by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend has a way of morphing its way into the blame assigned to the characters of Romeo and Juliet whether it be at Friar Lawrence for marrying them or the families for letting their hatred for each other grow. Blame is assigned to the deaths of
I’ll devil-porter it no further. I had thought to have let in some of all professions that go the primrose way to th’ everlasting bonfire.” (ll.iii.14-17) Once again, Shakespeare uses this contradiction to prove the unusual behavior of the Macbeths. While this scene only uses references to hell in a fictitious way, dramatic irony occurs here because Macduff nor the Porter know of the horrid sin just committed beyond those walls. Although the appearance of something most commonly refers to a physical display, the impression given off by a person can be just as misleading. Equally important is the fact that duplicity in the hands of a demagogue plays with the mind of the public.
Romeo and Juliet is one of the most famous pieces written by William Shakespeare, which it’s theme is based on fate and foolishness. According to the evidence found through the text, Shakespeare makes it seem that Romeo and Juliet’s death was brought by fate and condition, though as well by foolishness. By analyzing the prologues, Romeo’s foreshadow in Act I and Juliet and Friar’s understanding of foolish behavior will bolster the author’s portrayal that their deaths was beyond their power. Even if they contributed to it with some foolishness, it was ultimately a matter of pure fate. In both the prologues of Act I and II, Shakespeare introduces Romeo and Juliet to the reader as star-crossed lovers and who will die, “A pair of star-crossed lovers
