Romeo decided that he was in love with Juliet upon sight without knowing who she was (Shakespeare 924). This was a terrible choice Romeo had literally no idea who she was and this could have stopped the whole conflict of the play. Romeo then ignored his dreams which he believed told his destiny (Shakespeare 921-1009). While if Romeo listened to these dreams which he believed told the future he would have been much more cautious because he would know that he was going to die prematurely. Also, by him listening to his dreams he would have made either little or no poor choices later in the play which results in his death.
Throughout the play, Friar Lawrence tries to make decisions that will benefit others, however, his disingenuous methods end up causing torture and pain for those around him. Furthermore, he ends up causing trouble for himself when he admits that “I married them [Romeo and Juliet],” (Shakespeare 5.3.243). Although it made sense to him at the time, his refusal to admit to the orchestration of the marriage of the two lovers before it became too late put him at risk of dire punishment. When he heard word of Juliet and Paris’s wedding plans, his decision to say nothing puts him in greater trouble. That also causes him to attempt desperate measures and to get Juliet to fake her death.
The tragic flaw that causes the hero’s fall is also a custom to the story of the tragic hero, this is known traditionally as a harmantia. Eddie Carbone’s harmantia lies in his denial to accept his incestuous attraction for his niece Catherine. Due to a suppression of his unnatural desire, Carbone now feels that he is justifiable in his struggle against Rodolpho. It may even be possible that Eddie has managed to convince himself that his objections to his niece’s marriage is purely innocent and is just out of worry, however “it becomes clear to everyone but Eddie that his own motives have more to do with lust than with law and order” (Charles McNulty). If Eddie was able to acknowledge unreasonable desires it is possible that he could have
He progressively gets angrier with Desdemona and he eventually ended up killing her due to his intense jealousy. After the word gets out that Iago made the whole thing up, Othello’s heart sank and he was filled with guilt for the loss of his beloved
Impulsiveness. As defined by Webster’s Dictionary, to be impulsive is to act or do something without forethought. In our society today, we see reckless teenagers and ignorant adults being impulsive, causing their lives to fall apart by making the wrong decisions. In the play Romeo and Juliet, we see how our main character, Romeo, has the tragic flaw of impulsiveness and ultimately causes the final tragedy of the play. His decisions guide him down a heedless path and we see how it affects the other characters in the book as well.
I dare no longer stay.” (4.3.171-172). Consequently, the Friar happens to leave just before Juliet kills herself due to the amount of grief faced, with no consoleing. Friar Lawrence caused this based on his own obsession with his rank in Verona, and not wanting to get caught made him flee before he could comfort Juliet into not killing herself. Thus, making his own self image and his perception from the people of Verona force him to leave, as his ego and need to be of a prestigious rank allowed Juliet to be left alone in the Capulet Crypt, depressed and with a knife.
In hell, Francesca misreads Lancelot and blames her adultery on the book even though it was her fault for not understanding the book by not finishing it. Cavalcante misuses the language by assuming the word held indicates that his son died. Lastly, people on social media sin by saying they are someone, when in reality they are a different person. Manti Teʻo fell victim of this and feels embarrassed for falling in love with a nonexistent person. People should not misuse the language because it exemplifies another form of sin.
“ “This is a terrible mistake,” he said, shaking his head from side to side, “a terrible, terrible mistake.” “You’re just embarrassed, that’s all,””(87) Gatsby is a self made man, he makes a big deal in getting Daisy to meet him “accidentally”. But when she gets there, he backs out like a child. His whole life (after meeting Daisy) was based around getting Daisy to be his, so I understand that he was nervous to see if his hard work in becoming a great person worked on her, but Gatsby should had passed his nervousness aside to talk to her, without Nick.
Secondly he trusted young inexperienced Friar John in a important task. Thirdly he didn’t watch over Romeo and mentor him. Friar Lawrence is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because he allowed Romeo and Juliet to marry even though the families were against the union.
Therefore the Friar Knew it was a bad idea, due to the fact that he called it a “secret” wedding. The Friar may have thought that he was just helping two young innocent lovers unite with each other in marriage, but what the only thing he did was make their lives more complicated. Just think about it, if the friar had never married Romeo and Juliet, it would have given

Claudio’s relationship with Hero is immature because Claudio only loved Hero for her beauty. When Claudio arrived at Leonato’s home, he quickly fell in love with her without even meeting her. He told Benedick about his feeling towards Hero, hoping that she is as sweet as he imagined her to be. In the text it says, “In mine eye she is the sweetest lady that I ever looked on.

Beatrice and Hero are foils to each other because of their contrasting personalities.
