Several moments leading to Mercutio’s death, Romeo approaches Tybalt stating he must love Tybalt as family, but Tybalt wants to fight. Confused, Tybalt starts to harass Romeo. Mercutio becomes so angered by Romeo's attempts to just walk away from Tybalt that he declares, “ O calm, dishonorable, vile submission! Alla stocatta carries it away: Tybalt you ratcatcher will you walk!”, (Act 3, Scene 3, line 68-70), and challenges Tybalt himself. However, Mercutio's rash, emotionally driven response is a poor response, not only because fighting on the streets breaks the Prince’s newly decreed law, but also because it leads to his own death.
Romeo is a Montague, the rival family to the Capulets. The hatred that would lead to his own death started with this grudge. Romeo didn’t do anything to hurt the Capulets, but Tybalt didn’t like his presence. Tybalt got angry at a party over nothing. Tybalt sent a letter to Romeo’s home challenging him to quarrel.
In William Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, we constantly see Hamlet’s negative view of women and harsh treatment towards them. Hamlet’s relationship with his mother, Queen Gertrude, is rocky after she marries her dead husband’s killer and brother, causing tension between her and Hamlet. Hamlet’s view of women is changed at this point in time because of his mother’s actions. This affects the way he treats Ophelia, the woman that he is in love with and that also reciprocates his love towards her. While he wants to continue his relationship with her, he knows it is not best and is afraid of the outcome.
While Othello ultimately kills his wife over his fears of not being enough for his wife, one cannot deny that both Othello and the speaker of “Doubt” let their fears rule their lives. In Othello, the towns people, even his wife’s father, are constantly telling him that he is not good enough for his wife, Desdemona. Ultimately, Othello lets Iago manipulate him into killing the love of his life because he cannot keep his fears in check. Similarly, the speaker of “Doubt” lets her worry eat away at her until she convinces herself that, “If to love him was bold of me, to fall silent may be wise—he might just disdain my frail overreaching words” (Colonna). Not even taking a chance on love, she is brave enough to admit that she “fears failure,” but cannot even tell a soul of her love for the fear the he might “disdain my frail overreaching words,” as if to love is to cross a boundary that no one should ever cross.
“Uncle, this is a Montague, our foe, A villain that is hither come in spite To scorn at our solemnity this night”.(1.5.60-63). This means that Tybalt is saying that Romeo, (a Montague), is an enemy to them and that he has come to their party to mock anyone who has come to it. Ultimately Tybalt has anger inside him. Tybalt was enraged because Romeo snuck in their party which they were not allowed to go to. Tybalt hates Romeo after this incident at the party and he never made a truce with Romeo about it.
Banquo’s appearance causes Macbeth to look like a madman because he is alarmed by the ghost coming back to haunt him because of the terrible deed he has done. This piece of evidence is an example of the beginning of Macbeth’s inner conflict. As the play comes to a close, possession within relationships is refined when Macbeth no longer needs the influence of others, he has become berserk in sticking to the commitment to do what he has to do in order to become a forceful king. Shakespeare justifies this by “I’ll fight till from my bones my flesh be hacked. Give me my armor.
But as soon as he learns what happened, Chillingworth understands that he can no longer turn back time and stay by Prynne’s side. He realizes that the moment Prynne had that scarlet letter on her chest, he lost a place to call home. Because of this loss, he becomes furious at Dimmesdale and becomes obsessed with getting revenge. His reason for revenge led him to want to see Dimmesdale suffer for stealing his place and home by Prynne’s side. Another reason why Chillingworth holds malicious intents is because he is jealous of Dimmesdale.
He does the opposite of keep the peace between the families, he increases the tension between them. Moments after stabbing Tybalt, Romeo realizes the depth of the mistake he made. He dramatically cries “O, I am Fortune’s fool!” (3.1.142). Romeo becomes aware that his choice will cause more disagreement between the two families than ever, right after he married Juliet. He is going to be punished for his actions, and that will also impact his relationship with the Capulet daughter.
For instance, Macbeth continues, “This deed I’ll do before this purpose cool” (IV.i.175), showing the readers that he will continue on with this deed before he loses his sense of purpose. This shows that Macbeth already knows he will give up his ambition and manliness, so he might as well be ambitious while he’s stuck in this “man” portal. Macbeth does this just to prove to not only himself, but to Lady Macbeth, that he is a man. Living with a bad moral compass, Macbeth soon realizes his faults and it he has come too far to escape the portal. Macbeth’s prediction of losing his sense of purpose comes true.
When he hears of his mother’s remarrying, Hamlet becomes infuriated by the, “Incest” which has taken over the throne. He explicates this statement by speaking, “She married. O, most wicked speed, to post with such dexterity to incestuous sheets! It is not, nor it cannot, come to good. But break, my heart; for I must hold my tongue.” (1:2 Lines 161-164) Hamlet becomes frustrated for the fact that he may not say anything negative about the marriage of the queen, his mother, no matter how much he disapproves.
