Some of those antipathetic to this argument believe that Romeo is most at fault for the death of the couple because of his impetuous decision to commit suicide.Romeo would have never felt as if he needed to do this if the plan wasn’t set in the first place. Friar Laurence knew there could be major consequences if the plan failed, and this time they proved to be pernicious. “Her body sleeps in Capel 's ' monument,And her immortal part with angels lives”(V.I). Romeo would have never received this misguided information if it wasn’t for Friar’s overall plan, plus his lack of communication. This incorrect information caused Romeo to kill himself.
He did not want to bury his own nephew, he wanted to kill Antigone for burying Polyneices, and tried to kill his own brother because the kingdom had a curse on it. He had too much power and needed to calm down and think what he was doing. Antigone knew that this was the right to do and did without being afraid or sorry for it. She was helping Creon, Ismene, and the community, and they did not realize that she was helping them until it was too
Which set the theme for the play being, vengeance. How did King Hamlet affect the development of other characters in the play while being present so briefly? It all spins off of the one moment when he told his last words to Hamlet of what really happened to him. Once hamlet found out the truth, he started thinking of ways he could seek vengeance for his father and he ended up coming up with putting on this act so that people would think he’s going crazy, which effected every other characters development
The first deadly sin implemented into the story is pride. Three rioters become aware of their friend being taken by death. The men claim that they will “slay this traitor Death” (371). Although Chaucer knows death not to be man, he personifies it in this tale into the form of a man. This quote demonstrates the deadly sin of pride because the foolish rioters think they can avenge their friend against an unknown enemy.
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know 'st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.” when he finds out that Juliet is dead, but doesn’t know she faked her death. Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man.
Antigone expands the vision of this when she breaks the law and buries Polyneices. He is too prideful to save his own cousin and even sentences Ismene just to look out for his throne. Another show of pride is when he threatens the sentry just for telling him dreadful news. Creon threatens the sentry to "string" the sentry up just because he thinks he is losing control of the people (Scene 1, 141). Creon even values his pride over his own son, sentenced him to death with Antigone.
People know Benvolio as the beloved cousin, and friend of Romeo, but could he really be a “friend,” of Romeo when he caused him and his lover juliet to kill themselves? In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Benvolio often chooses to make bad decisions knowing the consequences, as well as kill 4 people just because he failed to help make the right choices for his friends. Benvolio is accountable for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because he often encourages Romeo to make rash decisions, knowing Romeo could get hurt. First of all, Benvolio was the one who introduced the idea of finding a new girl to love to Romeo, at the Capulet's feast. In act 1 scene 2, line 85, Benvolio is talking to Romeo about going to the Capulet's feast, Benvolio then says ¨at this same ancient feast of the Capulet's Sups fair Rosaline whom thou
Another action where Oedipus’s sense of pride led to his downfall is during the beginning to the play. When the plague is happening and his people is suffering because of his compassion for his people, he sent Creon to go to Delphi. When he learned that he have to investigate the murder of King Laius, he quickly without thinking curses the murderer, unknowingly cursing himself “I curse that murderer; if he is alone, I curse him! If he shares his guilt with others, I curse him! May His evil heart beat out its years in sorrow,” (pg 193).
Dido tells Anna to burn most things that he has left behind, but really this was a plan of Dido’s to kill herself. Dido states, “To whom do you abandon me, a dying woman, guess that you are-the only name now left from that of a husband? Why do I live on?” What Dido is implying here is that she has no reason to live because she is losing the man who she is married to. Aeneas does not think he has to stay because the real marriage ceremony did not occur. This is why when Dido thought they were married was her first death.
