This shows Kent’s intentions of feeding into Lear’s downfall by pretending to be someone else just to prove his love and watch out for him. As Kent pretends to be Caius, he’s only telling Lear what he wants to hear, and not the obvious truth: that his daughters are evil, and the power he had a confident grip on for so many years is slipping out of his fingers like grains of
Friar Laurence is to blame because of his devious and secretive nature. First, Friar Laurence agrees to perform a forbidden marriage without Romeo and Juliet’s family’s approval. Friar Laurence states, “In one respect, I’ll thy assistant to be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your household’s rancor to pure love” (Shakespeare 1031). This quote displays Friar Laurence’s devious nature because he had agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet, thinking that it would solve the rivalry between the two families even though it was against who he was, his morals, and his religion. In addition to him simply agreeing to marry the two, Friar Laurence
This goes against the family feud as Montagues and Capulets are supposed to hate each other. His love of Rosaline motivates him to trespass on Capulet property where he meets his next love, Juliet Capulet. Even though he is
When he hears of his mother’s remarrying, Hamlet becomes infuriated by the, “Incest” which has taken over the throne. He explicates this statement by speaking, “She married. O, most wicked speed, to post with such dexterity to incestuous sheets! It is not, nor it cannot, come to good. But break, my heart; for I must hold my tongue.”
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).
He does not even recognize his own faults at all, only seeing the effects and realizing that he must have done something without knowing what. Antigone, on the other hand, continues to resist the government not because she is an idiot doomed to die, but because she knows that obeying the gods and serving traditions will grant her peace that Creon cannot find. She is hailed a hero by the commoners while Creon cries at his wife’s and son’s graves. As his happiness levels rocket downwards as the play goes on, it can be analyzed that he is the one and only true tragic
The definition of patriarchy is a male-centered society, in which women are marginalized politically, economically, and psychologically. Patriarchy is present throughout the story of Rumpelstiltskin. When the poor miller boasts to the King about his beautiful daughter to look like a person of importance, the daughter couldn’t object. The miller is willing to give away his daughter, as though she is an object, to a greedy king. The wishes of the daughter are unheard by her father, and he seems to care more about his status than his daughter’s well-being.
As a result,Hamlet can never trust his uncle’s wicked ways to get into people’s heads. Hamlet was betrayed by his friends because they worked for Claudius and gave orders from him,which caused him to not trust them either. For example,when Claudius summons Guildenstern and Rosencrantz to spy on Hamlet,Claudius said,”see if you can make Hamlet feel better and see if you can get info on what he is up to”(Shakespeare 87). This behavior shows evil purposes and twisted words. Claudius sends Hamlet’s friends to make him happier but also use them to see if Hamlet is mad.
Shakespeare wants to show us that there is no authority to prevent betrayal as in the case of Edgar and Cordelia. King Lear betrays his daughter Cordelia by misunderstanding her intentions while his other daughters betray him by turning against him. On the other hand, Gloucester misjudges Edgar and he himself is betrayed by Edmund. Another theme in the play is reconciliation. Edger and Cordelia never ask for apology from their parents and both come to save them as Cordelia arrives with French army to save her father and she showers her true love over her father, so does
Also he forms a scheme to convince Othello, Desdemona is cheating on him with Cassio whom he sets up to look suspicious. Regarding Othello’s decision, the jealousy Iago felt went completely overboard when examining the situation. He allowed his emotions to overcome rational thinking, leading him to extreme ideas. Especially because the failure to receive a military rank does not justify the torment of another human being. These cruel actions were unnecessary and represent Iago’s corrupt mind.
Through the use of the theme of deception through appearance, the film Some Like it Hot is a natural descendant of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. In both works, characters change their appearance to deceive others into thinking they are a completely different person. The three types of deception that occur in both stories are intentional deception, accidental deception, and self deception, all through the characters changing their appearance.
Hamlet uses the secrecy of his plan to be able to surprise the characters that are most effected by his action giving Hamlet the higher ground in conflict. Throughout this scene, Hamlet was able to hold the basis of his secrets by only telling one person of his plan, trying not to make anyone suspicious in his actions, and pushing other to do the act for him so he will not be seen as the violator unto the characters effected. Through using one true and faithful friend that he trusts, Hamlet is able to capture the necessity of making sure other don’t figure out his secret plan to make Claudius and Gertrude guilty. When Horatio arriving to see Hamlet, Hamlet explains that “there is a play to-night before the King. One scene of it comes near the
