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.
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
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.

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
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
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.
“Impulsive actions lead to trouble, and trouble could have unpleasant consequences” -Stieg Larsson. In the Book Shattering Glass by Gail Giles and the play The The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, teenage characters experience impulse control. Rather, these characters experience the lack of control over their impulse. Impulse is when a person or animal have a sudden urge to do or say something, usually brought on by emotion.

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
“Nobody can change a person but someone can be the reason for someone to change” (Anonymous) Romeo Montague is one of the main protagonists in William Shakespeare's tragedy Romeo and Juliet. However, once he met Juliet Capulet, she was the one he needed in order to change. Romeo is a complex round-character that proceeds to undergo many situations that change his overall character. In the beginning, he is love-depressed who later falls deeply in love with Juliet resulting him to reach an unreasonable and immature state. Romeo Montague is a very love-depressed character, especially towards the beginning of the story involving Rosaline.
Friar Lawrence is responsible for all six deaths that occurred over four days. If Friar Lawrence had gotten the letter to Romeo in time, Romeo would have known that Juliet is just sleeping. When Romeo believes that Juliet is dead, he says “Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die” (Shakespeare V.iii.120); subsequently, Friar Lawrence must be held accountable for the end result of his action.
Act 4 scene 5 gears the audience up for the catastrophe of the death of Romeo and Juliet. Juliet has just taken the vial of Friar Laurence’s potion and is in an almost dead state. The grief demonstrated by her family is intensified with her father’s personification of death. Capulet describes, “Death lies on her like an untimely frost / Upon the sweetest flower of the field” (4.5.28-29). Shakespeare describes Death like a human or personifies Death to dramatize the moment.
