Whether the Friar realizes it or not, he has just done something terrible that only strengthens the bond of these two lovers. This leads to several deaths along the way. This bond between Romeo and Juliet, fortified by Friar Lawrence and his hubris, causes a serious issue when Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, challenges Romeo to a duel. Romeo refuses to fight as they are now family by marriage and says, “… But love thee better than thou
Character Defense: Romeo We perceive that Romeo is innocent due to his apparent love for Tybalt and his clear disesteem to the brawl unfolding. He wanted to advent the violence thrust upon him by his love (Tybalt). He cared too much to fight him but when a good life-long friend, Mercutio, is murdered in front of his very eyes he is shaken to the core. He did this while not in the correct state of mind, cleary in a haze of sorrow and guilt not yet fully comprehending the effects of his actions. His gentle altercation with Tybalt defines his love for his friends and family.
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). Here Romeo tells Tybalt, that he loves him. Romeo does this with no thought about their last names, he is so in love with Tybalt’s cousin that all of a sudden he forgets about the two family’s bad blood. Friar warns Romeos about rushing into a relationship “Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast” (Shakespeare 847).
Even though Desdemona is completely innocent of infidelity, Iago keeps planting evidence to create doubt in Othello’s mind. Since Othello believes that all men are as noble and honest as him, he believes everything Iago is telling him. Although Othello still loves Desdemona, he warns that when his love runs out, all hell will break loose. Several lines later, Othello comes to the conclusion stating, “I am abused, and my relief/ Must be to loath her.” (3.3.267-268) This scene is explaining that he has made his decision, and his love for Desdemona has run out. Othello is so hurt and in a fit of rage, and passion he’s not thinking clearly or logically.
Observing the love and affection between others only increases the effect his own solitude has on him. He is aware of his otherness and knows that he is “shut out from intercourse” (84) with the people he holds so dear. It can be argued that this is the point where the creature’s humanity is the strongest throughout the course of story. He has a basic understanding of human societies, he speaks and reads their language, shows compassion and, most importantly, seeks their company and friendship. In his knowledge that social belonging is the missing component to his own happiness, he confronts the people he secretly observed only to, once again, be met with fear and anger (94-95).
This ending line represent’s the journey he’s been through and shows how passionately he does feel about love and in the end it is not a joke to him. ‘Our Love Now’ by Martyn Lowery shows an argument between a man who insists that the revival off his love is possible. It is evident that the male has done something wrong, as he believes he can fix the situation and uses physical examples of regrowth in the form of metaphors. ‘the cut will mend’. However is consistently shot down by his partner who has no faith in the relationship anymore.
He is so enraged by this traitorous act against not only himself but his beloved wife and son that he is ready to fly off the handle and end the treachery. If this event had occurred before Book XX, Odysseus most likely would have impulsively jumped into action and slaughtered the evildoers. But he doesn’t do this. Instead, he “mutter[s] to himself” (XX, 17). He takes counsel with himself and considers his actions before he prematurely reacts.
Winston also resents the rule that there can be no love in Oceania, and leaps at the chance to break it. When Julia hands him the note saying “I love you”, he states, “the desire to live had welled up inside him, and the taking of minor risks suddenly seemed stupid” (2.1.109). Winston is no longer interested in his previously small acts of rebellion. He wants to deepen his actions and carry out a force much greater than simply writing in a journal. Winston enjoys the fact that he’s becoming a rebel, and takes great pride in the fact that he is
He actions towards Hassan are humiliating and often leave him feeling ashamed but because of his jealousy he continues to take advantage of Hassan’s devotion.

He seems to have lost his purpose, sense of direction, in life. Bitterly saying what he had “learned”, he finally understands that this world is a harsh one. In a real world, you survive only if you can afford it. Continuing on with his rant, he laughed “...it’s all divided up. Life is...Between the takers and the tooken (He laughs) ...Some of us
