The Friar is also guilty to these lovers death, but he only thought that this relationship between Romeo and Juliet be the cure to their families grudge for each other. It just happen to be that his plan did not work and the lovers took suicidal action on their own will. Yes, the Friar seems to be more of the culprit, but the cause of making this relationship undergo complication is because of the Capulets and Montagues. Both of them let their anger get ahead of themselves and
“ Mistakes made by a foolish mind, cruel mistakes that bring on death.” (1406 to 1407.) In this quote, King Creon of Thebes is acknowledging that he has made tragic mistakes, because he wanted to the laws of his state, that he put in place, instead of preserving the safety of his family, which consequently lead to suffering for many. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, the character Creon makes decisions based on what he feels is right, and refuses to pay attention to other’s advice. His stubbornness and selfishness prove fatal, and as a consequence of his moral deficiency, he kills an innocent woman, and loses his son in the aftermath. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, Creon’s deadly stubbornness and selfishness in ignoring the pleas and
There are so many talks and thought which come from him are pessimistic. When he falls in love with Charlotte, he think he is incorrigible. And he gives an example about it. When he argues with Albert, he says :” The question, therefore, is, not whether a man is strong or weak, but whether he is able to endure the measure of his sufferings. The suffering may be moral or physical; and in my opinion it is just as absurd to call a man a coward who destroys himself, as to call a man a coward who dies of a malignant fever.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of err is: “to make a mistake.” Within Shakespeare’s Othello there are plentiful amounts of mistakes being made; the main of which being Othello’s doubts in his wife, Desdemona. Although it may seem that Othello’s err of murdering Desdemona is simply due to the fact Iago is giving Othello false clues of his wife’s ‘affair’ with one of his lieutenants, Cassio; it is actually caused by Othello’s tragic flaw: his lack of self-confidence. Othello states, once he begins doubting Desdemona’s honesty, “Haply, for I am black and have not those soft parts of conversation that chamberers have, or for I am declined into the vale of years […]” Othello (III.3.263-66). In making this comment,
Romeo and Juliet were two young lovers from troubled families. Their love was so strong that they ended up dying for eachother. But who is to blame for this horrible tragedy? I believe that some of the characters to blame for this are Friar Lawrence, the two families, and Romeo and Juliet. These characters show to be to blame because they either disobeyed, were too reckless, should’ve payed more attention, or should’ve been more understanding.
This is betrayal because he was suppose to love Hero and that means hearing her out no matter what happens, but instead he shamed her in front of everyone. Don John also says, ““For thee I'll lock up all the gates of love, And on my eyelids shall conjecture hang, To turn all beauty into thoughts of harm, And never shall it more be gracious.” (4.1.110-113). With the phrase, “For thee I’ll lock up all the gates of love” the reader can tell that Claudio has closed himself up from love because he is accusing Hero of cheating. This is betrayal as well because Claudio is not hearing Hero out and instead of listening to her he is going based off of what he’s
“From ancient grudge break to new mutiny” (Shakespeare 992). With this statement Shakespeare makes it quite clear who is responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. The feud between the Montagues and Capulets and their bad parenting are the reasons why Romeo and Juliet ended up dead; however, some people still believe that the Friar is responsible. To start off, the families’ feud is responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. First, the main reason why Romeo and Juliet are scared to be together is because they know that their families hate each other.
In the book Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, there are endless themes relating to different topics. However, the topic of hate seems to be a recurring topic that isn’t payed as much attention to. Hate is futile because it pushes people away from each other, this theme is shown by characterizing Capulet and his uncaringness as responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. Not only did he threaten Juliet with disowning her if she refused to marry Paris, but he was also uncaring of her emotions, which led Romeo and Juliet to pursue their dangerous plan of running away. In the end, he lost Juliet, who never even married Paris.
This stress put on him is what essentially created his tragic flaw. Hamlets tragic flaw is his indecisiveness to make decisions. This trait is demonstrated through the entire play and causes Hamlet to his own demise. When Hamlet has immediate suspicious of his fathers murder and later proof, he delays the murder, which is puzzling because the play is about revenge, and one would expect him to have done it earlier as he had ample amount of opportunities to do so. His indecisiveness has puzzled many.
In the beginning, he is depressed for the death of his father and the fact that his mother remarried so quickly. Stating that his “flesh” would “melt”, meaning he wanted to die. The difference of the madness between Hamlet and Martha is that Hamlet went mad on purpose. Although it can be seen that Martha did as well to escape the fact that she did not actually have children and she went mad to make up her own son to fill the void. Hamlet tells Horatio that he is going to “feign madness.” And that if Horatio notices any strange behavior from him, it is because he is outing on an act.
He skewed Georgiana’s views by making it seem that if she wasn’t perfect then he could not love her. Throughout the process Georgiana was scared of her husband’s actions but she was made to believe that what he was doing was normal so she went along with it. Aylmer was an evil human being who did not really care about his wife. He only cared about whether she was the perfect women and that led him into committing the murder of his so called “beloved
Troy loses the dignity, respect and even love that was once given to him by his friends and family. His own selfish needs are fuel for the destruction of the life he once knew. By cheating on Rose with Alberta, he may have found short term happiness but in the long term he caused Rose more pain. And of course this pain seeped through to other people, leading them to lose their respect for Troy. The downward spiral of Troy life proved to be through his decisions and his actions.
In Hamlet, Hamlet goes through emotional turmoil that causes him to hurt the people around him, and his actions raise a question of does he love Ophelia. Although some may disagree, in William Shakespeare 's Hamlet, Hamlet truly loves Ophelia, but her betrayal and his growing hatred for women twists and corrupts his love. People of this time
Repressed memories turn into either fear or confidence depending on the memory in their unconscious mind. Hamlet’s memories of his father’s death and his mother’s remarriage to his uncle have traumatized him which resulted in depression. Some of the symptoms of depression are to doubt one’s self and inability to make decisions thus; it affects his cognitive thinking process without his own knowledge. Ultimately the unconscious mind of hamlet influences his conscious mind on contemplating life and death where he is not entirely firm with making a decision. His memories were traumatizing which led to a negative effect on his cognitive thinking but if one has to have a happy memory it will have a positive effect on their cognitive thinking such as being an optimistic and a confident thinker.
When he finally makes this life-changing discovery, he is angry and heartbroken beyond all belief. Strangely, however, Orlando is angry because she loves a man who is of a lower class than he is, and for the fact that he was not the man to take her virginity. Therefore, it can be
