“So Bisclavret was betrayed, / ruined by his own wife” (line 125-126, emphasis added). The addition of “own” emphasizes the [wrongness] of what his wife did not just because she did it but because she did it as his wife. Wives should be faithful to their husbands, and while Bisclavret’s wife did not have to stay with him (because he is, after all, a monster), she has promised herself to another man and stripped Bisclavret of his title, his lands, his humanity, his
But even before Juliet knew it was Romeo she said, “If he’s married, I think I’ll die rather than marry anyone else.”(1.5.134-135). She is saying that if this individual she just met is married, she rather die than marry anyone else, but when she gets told that its Romeo she knows he's not married but it is her worst rival. So Juliet could use this to escape marrying Paris, but also escape the family feuds. They weren’t in love because they were using this marriage to escape their families and other
“For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” (740) William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, is the tale of two star-crossed lovers from Verona who love each other despite their feuding families, but ultimately meet their end. Romeo and Juliet are predestined to die because of fate, but the foolish mistakes and reliance on luck and chance by multiple characters are what contribute to the star-crossed lovers’ destinies coming true. Throughout the play, fate ensures that Romeo and Juliet will come to their demise. Romeo says this quote, “Alive, in triumph! And Mercutio slain!
Their vision becomes is obstructed by the love they have for one another, they don’t even learn they are enemies until later. “Is she a Capulet?” , asks Romeo to the nurse(Romeo and Juliet 1.5.117) “Come hither, nurse. What is yond gentleman?” , Juliet asks about Romeo to the nurse (Romeo and Juliet 1.5.126) The best example of love blinding rationale is when romeo is banished. Juliet does not even weep for Tybalt, her cousin, she only weeps for Romeo. Romeo says, “Ha, banishment!
For example when she fell in love with Romeo knowing that he was a Montague and that the Capulets and the Montagues were enemies. She knew it was wrong and even then she said… “Thy Purpose marriage, send me word To-morrow”(Act: II Si), she proposes, knowing that he was a Montague and a family enemy. Juliet should have told her parents that she was married to Romeo when her parents told her she was to marry Paris. Her parents would have no option but to let them be together. Both her and Romeo were blinded to everything except each other and did not think before doing, for example, Juliet should have ensured that Romeo found out her plan, before she did it.
He has so many bad behaviors and Daisy looks past them. She knows Tom is having affairs but she never confronts him about it. She is supposed to be a trophy wife and she is until Gatsby came back into her life. She is also blinded by love, she cannot decide between the two men in her life. Tom has the more respectable “old money,” during the time and Gatsby has her love and best interest.
Due to the lack of a loving relationship, the Buchanans cheat on each other constantly without care. Tom has an affair with Myrtle Wilson, who is engaged to George Wilson. Daisy forgives Tom for doing so because of his affluence: “Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time." (Fitzgerald 251-252). Daisy was a trophy wife; Tom did not truly love her, for he is married to her because of her beauty.
While she arguably brings her own downfall, it is not a personal flaw that makes it happen, but a strength. She begins as nobody special, no high fame or position of power. If anything, she’s the notorious result of an incestual family. When she refuses to obey Creon in favor of the gods, it’s an agreeable choice, not one to be punished for. As those from Thebes believe her to be valiant and making the right decision, she soon becomes widely known by quiet word of mouth.
Without thinking, Romeo and Juliet became victims of their own love chargeable to Friar Lawrence, young age and fate. First, I believe Friar Laurence is to blame is of how unfaithful he was throughout the story. For example, “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households' rancor to pure love.” (2.3.96-99). This shows that Friar Laurence doesn't believe that Romeo's love for Juliet is authentic, but he agrees to marry them anyway.
As the Montague and Capulet families have an ongoing feud, and Romeo and Juliet belong to opposite sides, it is inevitable that Juliet will have to choose between her family and husband at some point. Thus, when a situation such as this one occurs, her loyalty has proven to be more towards Romeo than her parents. To begin, one instance in which Juliet shows her loyalty to Romeo is when her parents want her to marry Count Paris, but she defies them and marries Romeo instead. She blatantly goes against their wishes and stays loyal to Romeo. While arguing with her parents on the issue, Juliet says, “‘I pray you, tell my lord and father, madam, I will not marry yet; and, when I do, I swear, It shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris.
