She tells Friar Laurence how “God join’d [her] heart and Romeo’s, thou [their] hands; and ere this hand, by thee to Romeo seal’d,”. Shakespeare used this monologue to illustrate Juliet’s distraught emotions towards the situation. This characterizes her as immature because teens are usually over dramatic and think that not being able to love someone is the end of the world. Juliet is also indirectly characterized when Friar Laurence says “If, rather than to marry County Paris, thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself,”. Juliet is characterized as being desperate because she is at the point where she would rather die than live a life without Romeo.
Have you ever had someone who you really liked but could not be with? In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet there is a guy named Romeo and a girl named Juliet. These two come from two families who hate each other but when they meet they fall in love and try to be together. This does not work and they end up dead because they can not be together. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence should be pardoned and Old Capulet and the Nurse should be punished for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths.
Their love is forbidden because of a rancor between their families. As they arrange a marriage behind everyone’s back, everything seems to be testing them; including a fight that broke out and ended in Tybalt’s murder and Romeo being banished from his hometown, Verona. Juliet could not go without being with her love, Romeo, and quickly had to find a way to be with him before her other marriage that her father arranged for her took place. As the friar arranges a plan for the two star-crossed lovers to reunite, things don’t work out the way they’re supposed to and end in the deaths of both characters. 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.
As part of Friar Lawrence’s plan, he sent Friar John to tell Romeo about the plan, but word got to Romeo about Juliet’s death before Friar John could tell Romeo about the plan. As it is made obvious, everyone thinks that Juliet is actually dead except for Friar Lawrence, Friar John, and Juliet. Obviously, William Shakespeare uses dramatic irony such as Romeo and Juliet feuding families, Juliet’s arranged marriage to Paris, and Juliet’s death to keeps reader on edge and wanting to read more. Finding out that Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet shows there is going to be trouble throughout the play. When Juliet is crying over Romeo's banishment, her father tells her to marry Paris to make her happy again.
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.
Even if they had nothing to gain, they would feel pressure of custom to behave as good daughters in front of the whole community.” emphasising how Lear has such an immense influence over the girls and the aftermath of treating them as though they are his subjects is his punishment. This love contest forces the girls into a corner, and in accordance with the Elizabethan patriarchal system they are obligated to comply with their father’s wishes. This act causes the girl’s to retaliate against Lear as he has publicly embarrassed them with a foolish contest of love. Paul Cantor’s critic further stresses the point that Lear is the instigator - the
Lord Capulet going back on his word about letting Juliet have free will over who she can marry, which Juliet feels is unfair. The father in the end pushes his daughter into her suicidal state. Another specific example is where he pushes the wedding date up so that she feels even more stress and pressure. This causes Friar Lawrence and Juliet to go make a hasty plan to get her out of this marriage. In the end both Romeo and Juliet end up dead.
Shakespeare uses dramatic irony in a quote from Juliet to show how she realizes that their love will be forbidden because of the feud between the two families. “My only love, sprung from my only hate!” (1.5.137), Juliet says, as she is told by the Nurse that Romeo is a Montague. This quote is important to the scene and Act I because in this moment, Juliet realizes that her one and only love will be forbidden, as a result of her family’s hatred. Therefore, Juliet is in distress in this moment because she knows that it will be essentially impossible for her and Romeo to be together. This quote is considered dramatic irony because the reader knows that the two are from the feuding families and that their love will be banned.
In William Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, we constantly see Hamlet’s negative view of women and harsh treatment towards them. Hamlet’s relationship with his mother, Queen Gertrude, is rocky after she marries her dead husband’s killer and brother, causing tension between her and Hamlet. Hamlet’s view of women is changed at this point in time because of his mother’s actions. This affects the way he treats Ophelia, the woman that he is in love with and that also reciprocates his love towards her. While he wants to continue his relationship with her, he knows it is not best and is afraid of the outcome.
This is encapsulated in Hamlet exclaims, “frailty, thy name is woman!” about his mother’s hasty marriage to her deceased husband’s brother (Shakespeare 1.2.150). In this quote, Hamlet is dismissing all women as weak-willed like he believes Gertrude to be, which affects his interactions with Ophelia also. Hamlet is cruel to her because of this anger he has towards women in general, so when pretending to be mad, he goes “full force in the misogynist rage” when telling her he used to love her, but now she should go to a nunnery (Traub 192). Ophelia can be seen as weak in this scene because she protests little against Hamlet and only hopes that his insanity will end. These crude comments Hamlet says to Ophelia continue throughout the play until Ophelia is being buried when Hamlet asserts that he loved Ophelia.
Lady Capulet asks if killing Romeo will make her happy and Juliet replies saying “Indeed, I never shall be satisfied / With Romeo till I behold him—dead— Is my poor heart, so for a kinsman vexed” (3.5.98-100). There are multiple meanings in this paragraph. To her mother Juliet is saying, “I will never be satisfied with Romeo until I hold him dead. I feel dead in my heart when I think about Tybalt” The double meaning in this paragraph is what Juliet actually means “I will never be satisfied with Romeo until I hold him, until then my poor heart is dead” Shakespeare also has a third meaning and an example of dramatic irony. The triple meaning has to do with the line “I never shall be satisfied until I behold him—dead” .The third meaning and example of dramatic irony in this passage is the fact the Juliet never will actually hold
Juliet - Juliet was very immature due to her being very disobedient to her parents and her keeping secrets from her parents. She didn 't want to take any time into getting to know Romeo before she got engaged to him. She got engaged to Paris at the time Romeo and her planned to get married. She is one of the people to blame for the deaths of her and Romeo, because she agreed to take a potion that made her seem like she was dead. Friar Laurence - The Friar was very irresponsible in marrying the two teens, instead of marrying them he should have told their the Capulets and the Montagues about Romeo and Juliet’s secret relationship.
