But before she wakes, Romeo makes the bold, braving decision to be with her and drinks poison laying next to her while dying. This is the end of Romeo, but as he died Juliet wakes up and is horrified to see Paris and Romeo both dead. She takes Romeo's dagger and says “My body will be your sheath” (Act 5 Line 186), soon after she stabbed herself and died next to Romeo. All of these different kinds of love lead to the death or 13-years-old Juliet and 18-year-old Romeo.
Hamlet describes vividly his disgust for his mother, Gertrude, in his first soliloquy in the first act of this play. The queen has just remarried to her deceased husband’s brother, Claudius, in a short amount of time. Enraged by this rash decision of the queen’s, Hamlet shouts, “Frailty, thy name is woman!” (Shakespeare). Hamlet drives himself crazy mourning over his mother’s decision to marry Claudius. In a way, Shakespeare is implying that when women are allowed to make their own decisions and do what they want, it never results in anything beneficial.
Often times, the primary characters are the subjects of a context, and the story follows their footsteps. This is not an exception for both The Odyssey and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. However, Foer and Homer manage to seep in the effectiveness of secondary characters within the context, which eventually causes alternations to the main characters’ adventures. Homer begins Odysseus’ss journey by introducing the reason to do so. As an epic poem, The Odyssey’s narration focuses on Odysseus’s adventures in course of returning to Ithaca.
Virgil’s language is often formal and is decorated beautifully, whereas Dante writes in vernacular language. This suggests Dante’s intention of comparing Virgil’s Aeneid to Inferno and suggests the comparison between him and Virgil 's differences and similarities. In many ways, Dante tries to show his admiration for Virgil, as characters but also as poets as he uses Vigil as an inspiration in his poem to show his parallel thoughts in cohesion with

Paris was only at the tomb to say his goodbyes to his wife, who didn’t get to be his wife. Making him in the wrong place at the wrong time. Romeo also wanted to say his goodbyes to his actual wife and the world. He planned on killing himself with poison. Paris, being the heroic person that he his, decided he would stop Romeo and take him to the Prince, who earlier banished Romeo from Verona.
The Friar is a big part about miscommunication in this play and this is a big part of it, he is planning on still marrying Paris and Juliet because he ever got permission to marry Romeo and to Juliet, causing him either to get in trouble or continue to lie. It gets to the point where he gives Juliet a potion to make her sleep and disappear so he never gets
Juliet explains to her father that she’ll never marry Paris, this is because she’s loyal to Romeo and staying married to Romeo is what her heart desires. Then after Juliet refuses, Lord Capulet becomes enraged that she would even think to talk back to him in the way that she did. He becomes so enraged that he said “Thursday next/ to go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church/ Or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither/ Out, you green-sickness carrion! Out, you baggage/ You tallow face/” (3.5.158-162). After this threat, Juliet is forced to take action against her father, even if she would have to disobey him and possibly be disowned.
The Matrix did a wonderful job of presenting a story that was both entertaining and also full of hidden allusions and secret messages. In the movie there were several scenes that made direct but subtle allusions to the claims and ideas of famous philosophers concerning the nature of reality and the human condition. One of these claims that is referenced is that of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave which is in one of his famous writings, The Republic. In the
First, her boyfriend dumps her, then he calls her vulgar names, and lastly, he kills her father. Just one of these traumatic events could make a character go mad, but the combination of the three justifies Ophelia’s madness. The use of these three tragic events in Ophelia’s life makes her madness reasonable. The first event to happen that changes Ophelia’s demeanor is her relationship problems with her boyfriend, Hamlet. In Act III, Scene I of the play, Ophelia says to Hamlet “My lord, I have remembrances of yours, That I have longed long

Romeo 's personality of peace, loving, yet vengeful caused his own doom once he was exiled for killing Tybalt who killed Mercutio. Thus 'evidently causing pain for Juliet who lost both her lover and cousin. Juliet 's father arranging Juliet 's marriage to Paris made her mourning worse, already being married to Romeo yet being separated made her to reason with Friar Laurence.

Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her.
Juliet’s tragic downfall began when Romeo killed Tybalt, banishing himself to a lifetime of separation from her. Emotionally demolished by his sentence, Romeo says, “ Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say ‘death’”, indicating that Romeo would rather die than be banished from Verona. Romeo’s banishment by the Prince then causes Juliet and the Friar to come up with the idea to drink a potion that portrays Juliet to be as still as death. Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison.
Juliet doesn’t want to marry him because she is already married to Romeo, so she and the Friar devise a plan to let Romeo and Juliet live happily ever after. This plan is for Juliet to drink a potion which simulates death so that she will be buried in the family tomb where Romeo can come and visit her.
