Due to the death of his close friend, Romeo grew enraged and decided to “be a man” and get revenge on Tybalt. “O sweet Juliet, / Thy beauty hath made me effeminate / And in my temper soft’ned valor’s steel!” (3.1.115-117). In this quote, Romeo is expressing how Juliet’s beauty weakened him. He feels almost a hatred towards her for making him cowardly and not able to save Mercutio’s life. Since being strong is an expected characteristic of men, Romeo feels that the absence of his bravery is to blame for the tragedy.
As a matter of fact George and Ann are clearly the antagonists in the play. Their father helps these antagonists to take action by presenting justice and judgment once and for all. In the end, the Deever family clearly has a excellent and important significance in Arthur Miller’s play, due to the fact that if they were not shown on the whole, the play’s conflict would have been weak, the characterization of characters were going to have less description and information of them and finally the theme of justice and judgment wouldn’t be after all present because of the fact that they are the reason why this play of ‘tragedy’ has a
And to top it all off, he represents one who jokes too often can be one to joke his way to untimely death. Although all of these factors may not be agreed with among others, I will prove my reasoning for such that Mercutio stand for, outsetting with disliking both houses, continuing with the fate, and ceasing with the joker who joked his way to death. First, to begin with how Mercutio stands as a mediator in Romeo and Juliet. He does not approve of either house, and although he is Romeo’s friend he likely wouldn’t side with his house when given the decision of which house he’d rather follow, in fact, he undoubtedly wouldn’t choose either, he is
Friar Laurence did not seem to believe that he was a major reason for the suicides of Romeo and Juliet, and he more blamed the feud instead. Tybalt would presumably do the same, because he would not want his character to be ruined. As a result, the incompetence of Friar Lawrence and the impulsiveness of Tybalt are what caused Romeo and Juliet’s
And Eddie keeps on stating facts about how Rodolpho looks "wacky hair", at this point, Miller makes the audience confused and unsure if Eddie is actually jealous, because they don 't know if he is complementing him or making fun of him. But later on in the play, the audience were sure that he is actually jealous when he was complaining to Alfieri about Rodolpho, Eddie was confessing his thoughts and feelings to a lawyer, he kept on saying negative and bad things such as "This guy ain 't right", suggesting that he wanted
He is blind and unfair as a father and as a ruler. He desires all the trappings of power without the responsibility which is why the passive and forgiving Cordelia is the perfect choice for a successor. ( Foster Edward E.) The audience may feel alienated towards him at the start of the play considering his selfish and harsh treatment of his favorite daughter.As an audience, we soon feel sympathy for Lear despite his egotistical manner. He quickly regrets his decision and can be forgiven for behaving rashly
In the play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare’s use of stylized language promotes a deeper understanding of Juliet’s struggle with her conflicting feelings for Romeo. Specifically, she shows her adversity through her monologue of paradox. In this scene, her nurse confesses to Juliet that Romeo, her beloved husband, has killed Tybalt, her kinsman. This leaves Juliet conflicted; she doesn’t know what to do, how to act, or who to choose. This passage is important because it not only shows that Juliet is confused about her feelings for Romeo, but also that she feels as though she is a victim of deceit, and for one fleeting moment, is unsure of whether or not she can trust him.
Anyone can see that you’re a beggar” (Shakespeare) As Romeo was insulting this man it can be seen how he was acting out and truly not thinking on what he was actually about to do. Overall, Romeo is to blame instead of Juliet because he had acted under pressure and was acting
Fate does not always have to be known to its subject; it may work without anyone’s knowledge. One case where this is true is in Act 5 scene 2, when Friar John is explaining to Friar Laurence that he was unable to deliver the letter to Romeo, because he was suspected of the plague. Friar Laurence is seemingly unhappy, and is searching for a way to deliver the message to Romeo. All the meanwhile he blames “Unhappy fortune! The letter was not nice, but full of charge”(Pg 83) through the text Friar laurence blames fate for Friar John not being able to deliver the letter to Romeo.
First deception being between Desdemona, Othello, and her father with the elopement. Next, The lack of communication between the two characters signifies the type of relationship Othello and Desdemona had. Despite the fact that each were loyal to each other, it proves to show how unhealthy their relationship truly was, and reflects how it was in the beginning as well when they eloped and how much it was a bad idea. Iago, however, remained sovereign over their relationship, allowing the loves to fall right into his trap. However, Iago is not the only one that is to take all the blame.
