He thought if he could help marry Romeo and Juliet together, that he would get the recognition for stopping the feud between the two houses. If he could do this, he would become very wealthy and recognized in the city of Verona, therefore he attempted, but it strongly backfired. He tells Romeo that, “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be, For this alliance may so happy prove To turn your households' rancor to pure love”.
The story opens setting up the conflict between the protagonist Brett and his wife, Haylee. While the idea is good, the scene can use more excitement and the dialogue can be less on the nose. Try to convey their conflict, but do it subtly and with more visual images rather than through direct dialogue. For example, show how un-romantic Brett truly is versus having the characters talk about it. Instead of the game ticket being for Brett and Matt, consider that maybe it’s their anniversary or Haylee’s birthday and she’s excited about getting a present and then the present turns out to be tickets or something very un-romantic.
Since being strong is an expected characteristic of men, Romeo feels that the absence of his bravery is to blame for the tragedy. In another instance to showcase the problems caused when the perfect traits are not exhibited, Lord Capulet has a bad reaction to Juliet’s refusal to marry Paris. At the start of Paris’ courtship, Lord Capulet has a particularly relaxed outlook on the marriage, and insists that Paris woos her and she wants to go into the marriage. After fleeting days of
As a Friar, Friar Lawrence does not use his ability and skills wisely to marry the madly in love couple. He assumed that marrying the teenage Romeo and Juliet would stop the long-lasting feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I’ll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” (Shakespeare, 2.3) Not only did Friar Lawrence irresponsibly marry Romeo and Juliet after the naïve
The repetition of the word ‘lust’, combined with the sexual associations of Desdemona’s bed, reflects and draws attention to Othello’s preoccupation with sensual matters. Othello even refers to his precious wife as ‘whore’ (III.iii.356), a ‘subtle whore’ (III.ii.20) and a ‘cunning whore’ (IV.ii.88), in a way to appreciate him. Shakespeare actually has indirectly revealed Othello’s fear of Desdemona’s sexuality. Even though Othello seems to be very confident in him and his control over Desdemona, he is actually tentative and afraid that Desdemona will cheat on him, proving his
Othello explains to the Duke that he does not fear Barbantio disapproving because he knows that he is a good general. “Her father loved me, oft invited me… From year to year- the battles, sieges, fortunes That I have passed. I ran it through, even my boyish days” (1.3.127-131). Othello believes that because he is a good general, Barbantio will be able to overlook his relationship with Desdemona. Othello is also counting on the fact that Barbantio once loved him.
In wealthy families, the patriarch would make an arranged marriage in order to gain an alliance with another or to rise up within the social hierarchy. This is exactly what happened in the play. This shows that Capulet, appearing caring and concerned in the beginning, wants Juliet to marry for social gain. In the beginning, he allows Juliet to willingly be with Paris which is a stark contrast to when he becomes angry and tells Juliet she has no choice. This leads to Juliet wanting to die rather than marry a person she does not love.
Petruchio recognizes that he has much less to lose than Katherine for not showing up to the wedding, and he uses it as leverage against her. With the leverage, he is able to force her to agree with him even on the most foolish fallacies. By repeatedly snaring Katherine in battles that she cannot resist or win, he is able to wear her down. After Petruchio threatens to turn back in Act 4 Scene 5, Katherine yields and says, “Forward, I pray, since
Lord Capulet fails in the sense that he rushes Juliet into a marriage solely because he is of noble upbringing- “Of fair demesnes, youthful, and nobly trained” (Shakespeare 3.5.181). He does not take into account what hardships Juliet and Romeo might experience at such a young age. Capulet is repeatedly using his power and authority over Juliet in the benefit of only himself. At this time, it was normal in society for young girls to be married for the wealth and well being of the family, but he is very insensitive about her emotions. He insists that Juliet marry Paris, with the alternative being that he will disown her.
One of Iago’s plans to cause Othello to take action was the day of Othello’s wedding. After Othello and Desdemona were married they went to go consummate their marriage. Iago plans to get Cassio who is already drunk, to drink even more and causing him to do something that would ruin his reputation. “I know, Iago, Thy honesty and love doth mince this matter, Making it light to Cassio. Cassio, I love thee But never more be officer of mine.— (II.iii.210-214) refers to Act 2 Scene 3.
For example Patrick Verona was overly nice, trying to get Katherina’s attention because of the bet, Petruchio did the same thing except there was no bet involved, Petruchio was flirting at first, saying “sweet” things to her. Another similarity they both have is the reason why they were both trying to tame the “shrew”, as it said above, Patrick was taming Katherina because of a bet he made, Patrick basically wanted the money and asked for a larger amount of cash as the bet went along. In the play Petruchio was planning to marry Katherine because of the amount of money she and her family owned, but he made it seemed that he was really in love with her in the beginning when he met Baptista. Before Petruchio went to meet Baptista & Katherine, he was talking to Hortensio & Grumio on planning to marry Katherine because of wealth & other stuff, in the middle of that conversation Hortensio offered to go with him to meet Baptista since the rule of marrying Bianca (Katherine’s sister) was she was not allowed to marry anyone until Katherine found a man first and married him, so Hortensio wanted to go with Petruchio tp approach that moment he had after Hortensio asks Baptista to be with his daughter,
