During the famous play Romeo & Juliet Shakespeare uses emotions to establish Characters intentions, and more specifically he uses the expressions of grief and anger. Which he uses to demonstrate a higher emotional degree of impulsive decisions. By establishing decisions based on emotions such as grief and anger, can lead to unthoughtful and poor decisions; this is the case with Romeo’s fury and rage which leads to conflict with Tybalt. Along with his overwhelming grief of Juliet's death which conclusively leads him to kill himself by his own hands. A personal example of a hasty decision in my life would be decisions based out of acrimony and how the outcomes of my actions were poor and unthoughtful.
Not only does Romeo manage to kill Tybalt, but he also turns the law against himself, as the Prince declares Romeo’s banishment. This banishment is just the beginning of the dominoes laid on the board by Shakespeare; it becomes the physical barrier that separates Romeo and Juliet from each other. In the last act, this barrier then separates their minds as neither of them are on the same page, which is the cause of their
Another instance is after Romeo kills Tybalt, Friar Lawrence explains the positive to his banishment and points out “A gentler judgement vanished from his lips: / Not body’s death, but body’s banishment” (3.3.11-12). Shakespeare uses the words body’s death as a way to foreshadow what will happen if they end up loving each other and prioritize their love over their well being. The words body’s banishment shows how the souls of Romeo and Juliet are exiled from their bodies because they can not be together. Thus, Shakespeare uses foreshadowing to show the death of Romeo and Juliet, even though the audience knows and proves that they choose love over life Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy that has started to become present in teens lives. The play shows that you should not put love over your well being as there will be fatal
In the following catharsis, Macbeth releases those emotion, “And be these juggling fiends no more believed,/that palter with us in a double sense,/that keep the word of promise to our ear,/and break it to our hope” (5,8,23-26). The last part of this characters downfall, is when he is killed by Macduff. Shakespeare wrote this part beautifully because it evokes a feeling of sadness and sympathy for Macbeth. This scene indicates that Macbeth is a tragic hero because, Macbeth thought that he would be safe, according to the witches, but when he uncovers Macduff is the only human able to end him, he immediately gives up all hope and confidence, and dies. To wrap this up, Macbeth’s downfall, proves to show how he is a tragic hero because from when he kills Macduff’s family, to
If Romeo and Juliet would kill themselves if they could not be together and on thing in the way of that is the feud then the feud is just as bad as Romeo and Juliet themselves. The first thing you hear in the play is the chorus talking about how this feud led to Romeo and Juliet's death. " From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life " . Though I listed my beliefs of Romeo and Juliet's death people for some reason blame other characters or
She had taken to the potion to be reunited with Romeo and that hope is all ripped away the second she find Romeo dead next to her. Romeo and Juliet shows that decisions made with good intentions often have grave consequences. Romeo and Juliet shows that when people tried to help Romeo and Juliet's with their relationship to make it successful it ultimately turned out horribly. Like Newton’s laws, every action has an equal and opposite reaction the reaction seems to be rather on the negative spectrum of things with this particular
This creates indirect characterization when he uses complex juxtaposition to describe Romeo and Juliet's complex love. Through terms of contrast, Shakespeare characterizes Romeo as naive in the beginning of the play. Romeo makes mistakes by killing Tybalt and this destroys Juliet. She becomes heart-broken from this because her true love had just killed her cousin. This reveals Romeos dark side.
This is shown in Romeo and Juliet when Romeo screams to the stars, “I defy you stars!” (Shakespeare, 5.1.24) as a way to show how fate is messing with him. Since he believes now that Juliet is dead, he thinks that fate has made a fool of him. He wants to go against fate and his destiny to show his love for Juliet, which ultimately ends in both their deaths. Both these deaths were very quick decisions with very thought put in beforehand. These stars contain our fate which are thought of to be inescapable, and to show how few try to “bend” this fate, Jepp receives a poem which
At the beginning of this quote, Shakespeare uses the metaphor “the taste of fears” to describe how Macbeth has forgotten what fear feels like. This quote adds to the dark nature of the play because Macbeth is telling the audience that he doesn’t feel fear anymore due to all of the horrendous crimes he’s committed. Horrible things are so familiar to him that they
