When problems sprout like flowers, it’s quite difficult to find the root of the problem. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, two star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, end up taking their lives due to sundry aspects. However, there is one overriding aspect responsible for their deaths who happens to be Romeo’s best friend. Mercutio is the most at fault for Romeo and Juliet’s death; Mercutio is the character who ultimately convinces Romeo to attend the Capulet’s feast and because Mercutio challenges Tybalt to a fray — sparking a chain of events. Mercutio is able to force Romeo to go to the Capulet’s feast where he first accosts Juliet.
During this time, when Othello spots Desdemona with Cassio, Othello takes it out on her, thinking that she didn’t really love him. Desdemona feels somewhat guilty after this. “Some critics respond to the issue of Desdemona's guilt by suggesting that Shakespeare deliberately makes Desdemona's character ambiguous in order to give Othello's jealousy a motive” (Smith). In every cheating relationship, there is jealousy and guilt. “From an interpersonal perspective, the prototypical cause of guilt would be the infliction of harm, loss, or distress on a relationship partner (Baumeister 3).
Throughout the play we see Macbeth question his manhood and bravery, his wife adds onto that doubt by calling him a coward and showing him a way he could fix his problems overall. With the question: what is more dangerous, an opportunity or a thought? an opportunity gives you the chance to take it, but a thought makes the action come to life. Macbeth may be partially responsible for the deaths, because he was the one to do them, but without the push and thought given from Lady Macbeth, he would not have followed through with his temptation and killed anyone innocent. Ergo, Lady Macbeth bears most responsibility for the deaths in this play, because without her push, Macbeth would never have gone through will these multiple
Here, Iago and Roderigo tell Brabantio, after waking him as if he is being robbed in the night, of his daughter marriage. Then to see another similarity would be to look into the envy of power and tragedies within, Othello and Richard II. Iago thinks, Othello granted Cassio a lieutenant position he deserved and he feels both betray him with his wife. He sits out for revenge of all with his jealous envy and ultimately ends the play in multiple tragic deaths. With this Iago has convenience Othello of the fake affair, thus sealing the faith of the innocent Desdemona.
In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare presents a story that provides many suspects as to who ultimately causes the disastrous suicide of the two young lovers. Despite being a grown man, Romeo is depicted as someone who is exceedingly unstable, dramatic and even impetuous in times of emotional distress. As a result of Romeo acting before he thinks, he tends to have a disregard for social boundaries. In Romeo’s relationships, he rejects the social standards at the time. Romeo’s disregard for established social boundaries in relationships, ultimately leads to the deaths of the lovers because Romeo adores Rosaline, a Capulet, goes to a Capulet party, and marries Juliet, who is also a Capulet.
In Shakespeare’s Othello, Iago is often portrayed as one of the most atrocious characters in a literary work. His plan for revenge unfolds gradually and surreptitiously, as he keeps his victims under his belt. On pages 126-128, he executes his plan for the first time in Cyprus and gets Cassio drunk. This example gives insight to the rhetoric Iago uses in order to manipulate his ‘victims.’ Similarly, through this monologue, he has deeper intentions: intentions to ruin Cassio. In the beginning of his monologue to Othello, Montano, The Drunk Cassio, and other officers, Iago begins with a paradoxical statement “I should have this tongue cut from my mouth than it should offence Michael Cassio (126).” Through further inspection Iago’s soliloquies
Pointing fingers to assign someone the blame often happens when reading. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is no exception. The story is of two star-crossed lovers who fall deeply in love then tragically die by their own hands. The blame could be given to the most probable characters. However, many small decisions made by numerous people caused Romeo and Juliet to end tragically.
And thou and Romeo press one heavy bier.” (III.ii.60-61) In Act 3, Scene 3 Romeo much rather be dead than be banished and Friar Lawrence explains how ungrateful he is to be alive and that Juliet still loves him. Similarly, in Act 4, Scene 3 where Juliet is about to take the sleeping potion, she expresses how she would not mind if the potion killed her or caused her to go insane, but if she was alive and well she kill herself immediately. Doubleness is also part of theme in the story. Doubleness is deception or dissimulation. When Mercutio gets stabbed by Tybalt he says “Ay, ay, a scratch; marry ‘tis enough/ Where is my page?
This contradicts with the lovesick Romeo and levelheaded Benvolio, who don't doubt true love exists. Mercutio is a hit with the public, but dies relatively early in the play, why would Shakespeare kill such an important character? A diversity of reasons could be found for this, but first you have to know who Mercutio really was. Mercutio first enters the stage together with Romeo and Benvolio, in act 1 scene 4 the talk about the party Romeo wants to go to, the reason for this is because of love. Mercutio here expresses his disapproval towards love in the famous Queen Mab speech.
Demetrius changes his love twice: Helena to Hermia, afterward it was Hermia to Helena. Lysander changes his love for Helena to Hermia, and next Hermia from Helena rather quickly too. The way Oberon drugs his wife for selfish reasons and never eventually tells her that she had been drugged, shows how unreliable he is with his love. Oberon would be willing to misuse his power to trick his queen into loving a horrible beast just for obtaining something that he wants He even mocks his queen by saying “there lies your love.” (Act IV,scene, Page 79). A few may argue that the love potion that caused many of these confusions, however that’s an insufficient excuse, it’s true that a couple of these events resulted because of the fairies.
