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
In Shakespeare’s, “Romeo and Juliet” Friar Laurence is to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths because he is devious and has a poor planning ability. 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.
His love of Rosaline is his first demonstration of defiance. 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.” (1:2 Lines 161-164) Hamlet becomes frustrated for the fact that he may not say anything negative about the marriage of the queen, his mother, no matter how much he disapproves.
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.
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
For example, he alerts Desdemona 's unapproving father of the eloped couple. 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.
