Misogyny is a theme throughout most literature work for centuries. Robert Browning in “My Last Duchess,” is a monologue about a duke who is from Ferrara, Italy. In the poem, the duke is talking to a nobleman whom is the father of his future wife. The duke explains why he murdered his previous wife who was just seventeen years old and is warning the matchmaker and his future wife that if she does not remain obedient, then the duke will not hesitate to murder her either. Andrew Marvel in “His Coy Mistress,” writes a monologue about a man wanting to have sex with a shy woman before marriage.

The sequence of the rupture does not exist in the novel: the letter 141 quotes the text of the anecdote, Valmont content to send the letter to Tourvel and to be surprised at her ack of reaction. Stephen Frears makes this sequence a

If any warrior be wight enough to try what I propose, let him leap lightly to me and take this weapon — I quit- claim it forever, let him keep it as his own – and I shall stand him a stroke firmly on this floor…I will give him respite of twelvemonth and a day” (Neilson).

However, as Jim says that he actually is engaged with another woman, her hope changes into tragedy. The author Williams uses the contrast between candles and lightning to conclude the play. “At the close of Tom’s speech, Laura blows out the candles, ending the play.”(Williams 96). Blowing the candles, Laura put out her hope to escape her status and overcome her disabilities. This fragile candle symbolizes her desperation to change but it goes into failure.

At the beginning of the play, Sampson and Gregory, two Capulets, walk the streets of Verona talking about the Montagues. Sampson exclaims, “I will take the wall of any men or maid of Montague’s.” (1.1.12-13). This shows how much the two families hate each other. This is evidence that the parents are to blame for the deaths because if they did not feud with one another, then it would not be a problem for Romeo and Juliet to fall in love. Another example that shows the parents are to blame is when Juliet’s father forces her to marry Paris.
