The acts of violence throughout the play comes in three different forms; murder, suicide, and combat. Polonius is unexpectedly murdered, Ophelia goes mad and commits suicide, and Hamlet provokes a battle with Laertes that ends poorly for both men. All three of these violent acts can be traced back to clouded judgements, indecisiveness, anger, revenge, and heartbreak. Shakespeare created such acts of violence to keep the readers on their toes and informed, but also to invoke questions. Is Hamlet Insane?
In the play Hamlet, by William Shakespeare, Hamlet is tangled with the theme of death. During the play, he presents how his life is surrounded with death after the death of his father. Death theme is the most occuring theme Shakespeare writes about in his plays, which most plays have a very dramatic death theme and most of time involve the death of the main protagonist. Throughout the play, Shakespeare presents the idea of life, which is the never ending cycle of death and revenge. Shakespeare starts the theme of death with the death of King Hamlet, which stimulates Hamlet to seek for revenge with his various soliloquies considering death from various points of view and certainly leads to a dramatic ending.
Hamlet dies of wounds from the poisoned tipped sword Laertes used. ". Hamlet was deeply sorrowed by his father 's death. He spoke to a ghost, and this ghost stated that his father 's death was a murder, by the hand of his uncle, Claudius. " The serpent that did sting thy father 's life now wears his crown. " Hamlet was astonished, and then swore vengeance for his father 's death.
Friar Lawrence is responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet in William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Though the Friar is trying to help Romeo and Juliet, he is the catalyst of their destruction. Friar Lawrence’s hubris starts the chain reaction of tragic events for these “two star crossed lovers” (Prologue. 6). 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.
(Shakespeare, 3.1.112-115). As Mercutio’s final demand, is blaming his death on the hatred of the houses. This is the first death in the whole play, which is from the plague (Romeo and Juliet's love) where he curses them for basically killing him. He asks Benvolio to find him a house because both of them are just as bad and dies as a side character. Some people may rebuke that love had created them and was not made from hatred.
First, the author states, “From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,/Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” (Prologue.3-4). Shakespeare attributes the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet as stemming from “ancient grudge”, which is the long-lasting feud between the two families. He then suggests that it is the “civil hands” or family members, who brought them to their deaths. In addition, Shakespeare gives the spoiler that, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life.”
Mercutio asks Romeo “Why the devil came you between us? I was hurt under your arm” (Shakespeare 3.1.198-199). This decision led to Mercutio’s death along with another decision. After this incident, Romeo decided to seek revenge on Tybalt for killing his friend. The prince says “Romeo slew him; he slew Mercutio” (Shakespeare 3.1.178).
Another symbol in the poem was the poison. Taken in its literal sense, it is the substance Romeo used to kill himself in Juliet 's tomb after hearing of her death and knowing he could not go on without her. In another sense, the poison can also be viewed as a symbol of how strong Romeo and Juliet’s love was for one another by portraying how one could not live without the other and by showing that they both would rather die than go on without one another. Lastly, there is another symbol that is a tad bit harder to recognize. The Blossoms of Tragedy is pointing toward the symbolism of flowers and how they may describe the feelings one has for another.
Death, tragedy, misery, love, and unity; all of these words describe the story of Romeo and Juliet, but all the tragedy in the young lovers’ lives spiraled from Tybalt and his first terrible mistake. In the play “Romeo and Juliet” written by Shakespeare, the short story is that two young lovers secretly get married, people murder in anger, the two lovers get separated, and then end their own lives in a tragic death because of no communication. But, like I said, this all revolves around a mistake Tybalt made because of the feud between the Capulets--Juliet’s family-- and the Montague--Romeo’s family. Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because he killed Mercutio, which led to Romeo 's banishment, which then led to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. In the play “Romeo and Juliet”,
However, Romeo is not the only cause of Paris’ death. Why was Paris in the Capulet’s tomb the night he was killed? Juliet Capulet killed Paris by forging her own death, causing herself to be in the tomb where both Romeo and Paris had come to visit her and later die. Romeo and Juliet are not the only people that are at fault for the death of the noble Paris. Lord Capulet was the one that brought Paris into this tragedy in the first place.
At the scene of Romeo and Juliet’s death, Friar Lawrence confesses, “I am the greatest, able to do the least, yet most suspected, as the time and place doth make against me, of this direful murder. And here I stand, both to impeach and purge myself condemned and myself excused” (5.3.32-36). He explains that because he was there at the time of Romeo and Juliet’s death, he is suspected to have killed them. He should have been able to stop Juliet because he was there.
The accent is not a negative issue like it could be, instead in this song it is good for the song and makes the song flow better while sounding better. With the accent he has which adds to the flow and the great message he has in the song it makes it much better to the audience (stuff most singers don 't have). An example is how when he sings,” Always stay humble and kind,” or “when the dreams you dreamin’ come to you,” it sounds much better due to the accent and the words which are being sung start to flow and appeal to the audience. Another positive is that he has an accent that his audience can understand which is crucial so they actually know he’s saying (some accents people don 't understand but if they do understand the audience usually thinks it’s cool/ fascinating). The audience thinking it is “cool” is important so they become more likely to like it and listen to it again.
Angela’s Ashes gave me and surely other readers a feeling of hope. The way Frank McCourt presented his story and what the story told reaches its readers a significant message. He did it in such an engaging way that the themes the story provides gets McCourt’s purpose through. An excellent message from an excellent
Juliet was at fault for her and Romeo’s death because she stabbed herself. Due to Juliet’s “untimely death,” Romeo poisoned himself, thinking that she was dead. When Juliet woke up and found Romeo dead, she took Romeo’s dagger and stabbed herself. ”This is thy sheath; there rust, and let me die”(V.III.170). These were Juliet’s last words before she stabbed herself with the dagger of the man she had driven to poisoning himself.
