Here Juliet means that when she learned Romeos name it was too late, she has fallen under a spell of love. There are a few negative thoughts about Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden relationship. Friar Lawrence even warns Romeo to be careful about the marriage of him and Juliet “These violent delights have violent ends” (Shakespeare 856). Friar means that this is a marriage between these two families filled with hatred along with this history between them, the happy couple won’t last for long, and surely this will end badly. Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865).
The main cause for Juliet’s death was Romeo. From the beginning of the play, Romeo had many issues, such as his depression and his tendency to fall in deep infatuation, mistaking it for love. Based on the text, the audience is able to infer that Romeo used girls to fill his depression that his family was attempting to help him with. When Romeo went to Friar Laurence 's cell to speak to him about his love for Juliet, the friar made it known to the audience that Romeo was seemingly just as in love with Rosaline not long before. Romeo led Juliet to believe that he was exceptionally in love with her, when he most likely showed a pattern of this behavior in the past.
He then performs the marriage of Romeo and Juliet and even fabricates a foolish plan to keep them together when Juliet is forced to marry Paris. He also leaves Juliet alone in the tomb after she awakens to find her beloved Romeo dead. Friar Lawrence is a moral man, but his hubris leads to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo considers the Friar someone he can confide in, and he tells the Friar of his newfound love for Juliet. The Friar’s excessive pride allows him to agree to wed Romeo and Juliet, hoping he can bring the Montagues and Capulets together, though these families hatred spans generations.
Love is complex in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare by making various characters dramatically illogical, significantly overjoyed, or incredibly angry. Love’s influence on Romeo and Juliet make them noticeably illogical. Romeo, near the beginning of the story, had a strong affection for a woman named Rosaline. When Romeo is acting unusually depressed, his cousin Benvolio questions what is bothering him. Romeo explains that his love, Rosaline, does not love him back, and continues to describe the reasoning behind his sadness: “Tut, I have lost myself.
In Othello, Shakespeare intentionally made emotion a major flaw because it causes the characters to be easily manipulated and may cause the character to lose rational. Shakespeare did this to show strong of an emotion jealously is. Because of jealousy Iago is able to manipulate every character he talks to, whether they were minor like Brabantio, the father of Desdemona, or a major character like Othello, the Moor, the General, and supposedly Hero. If it weren’t for the jealously then the ending of Othello wouldn’t be so tragic. Othello’s jealously overcame Othello’s love, which made him blind to the truth.
Shakespeare depicts the theme of both fear and shock that Romeo feels when exiled in Act 3, Scene 3 of Romeo and Juliet. Immediately into the scene, Shakespeare uses personification when Romeo asks, “What sorrow craves acquaintance at my hand / That I yet know not?” (Shakespeare III.iii.5-6). Shakespeare sets the tone of fear using this literary device to show how there are to be harsh consequences for killing Tybalt. This theme is further explored when Romeo asks, “Doth she not think me an old murderer, / Now I have stained the childhood of our joy / With blood removed but little from her own?” (Shakespeare III.iii. 103-105).
Thesis: Iago, from Shakespeare's Othello, is one of the most memorable villains in all of literature. Iago deceives, steals, and kills to get everything that he wants. The play is centered on Iago's dislike for Othello, however, it is not that Iago pushes aside his conscience to commit these acts, but that he lacks a conscience to begin with. Iago's amorality can be seen throughout the play and is demonstrated by his actions against not only Othello, but Desmona and Emilia. Iago is able to manipulate the other characters of the play because he is a villain who doesn't understand the morals of society.
In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, he tells the story of two people who fall in love, Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet. Their families have been feuding for as long as they can remember, making their love for one another very dangerous. The two go to extreme lengths to be with each other, but this eventually results in both of them losing their lives. Throughout this story, Shakespeare conveys through his use of syntax and diction with wrathful tone that hatred can make people act irrationally loyal, and this hatred can cloud one’s morals. We first see Shakespeare demonstrate the dangers that come from fighting without proper reason in the very beginning between the characters Tybalt and Benvolio.
In their relationship, Juliet is more dominant, and Romeo is more submissive. These attributes are commonly associated with the opposite gender, and Shakespeare uses this exchange of traits to accentuate the irregularity of the situation being represented. The more dramatic features, though, are Romeo’s, and Shakespeare shows how difficult it is for him not to fit in the box of “being a man”. When Tybalt came to kill Romeo, Mercutio interfered, and it ended up costing him his life. Due to the death of his close friend, Romeo grew enraged and decided to “be a man” and get revenge on Tybalt.
However there are instances where she exhibits immaturity. One similarity between Romeo and Juliet is that she was also impulsive when it came to falling in love. Although she did question Romeo if his love was true, by the next moment she quotes,”I gave thee mine before thou didst request it: And yet I would it were to give again.” (3.1,L135) Interpreting Juliet’s quote, she talks as if she had already been willing to get married with him. However a few quotes back she was talking about whether she should trust Romeo. This shows her indecisive characteristic, which shows that she is untrustworthy.
