The audience is able to see both of the lovers, but Juliet is not aware of Romeo’s presence. Both of them are insecure about the relationship. For once Juliet does not feel completely ready it is “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden” and “too like the lightning, which doth cease to be ere one can say ‘It lightens’.” (Act 2 Scene 2) for her. Juliet feels too overwhelmed by the sudden affection which is just like a lightning stroke. Yet Shakespeare displays an emancipatory access to woman kind, portrayed as Juliet, due to the reason that she stands up for her own created problems and in the long run matures as a self-confident woman.
When Lucetta waits to meet Henchard and ran into Farfrae, she quickly agrees to start a love relationship with Farfrae despite that she did not really know him. Perhaps this is a depiction of how women were portrayed in the pre industrialist era in Victorian England; they were spontaneous and romantic, taking decisions without thinking it through. Lucetta seems as a person who lives recklessly and in accordance with the moment rather than planning. She seems rather childish. Lucetta and Farfrae have a good relationship until the town people know about her past relationship with Henchard and decide to expose them.
This part really was decided by the Nurse’s opinion, because if she didn’t approve of Romeo she could have easily withheld the information about the marriage. In the end, the Nurse decided that Juliet and Romeo were in love and should be together, and agrees to their

In the unusually altered beginning of Twelfth Night Viola disguises herself as Cesario, whom with which Olivia promptly falls in love with. In her article, “The Principle of Recompense in ‘Twelfth Night’” author Camille Slights writes, “As Cesario she clearly tells Olivia that she can never love her but, even so, she accepts Olivia's gifts, sparing her the pain and humiliation of having these symbols of love rejected,” (Slights 544). Slights illustrates various ideas within this sentence, one showing Olivia’s persistence in winning over Cesario with gifts and inextinguishable love. Furthermore, Olivia’s love for Cesario clearly proves itself as romantic love as she abandons her grieving promise contrived from the death of her brother and father. Unlike courtly love, romantic love proves steadfast and often ends pleasantly for all people, including the couples in Twelfth
In the Shakespearean era, women were considered weak and needed the protection of men. They only performed what their roles were considered at the time and both genders had entirely separate roles. Females in the play had assigned tasks, unlike the film. Woman’s objectives are presented differently in the movie than the play. Viola, in the film, hides her identity to gain gender equality.
Similarly, Disney’s Cinderella presents a cruel and ambitious stepmother who attempts to arrange marriages for her ugly, foolish, and somewhat comical daughters. In the film, we see their miserable attempt to sing opera, (supposedly in order to appear more feminine) as the mother proudly oversees. In one of the last scenes, she desperately urges them to make the glass slipper fit, and while she doesn’t downright tell them to cut off their toes or heels as in the original (Grimm 119), the comic scene in itself seems to have a subtle layer of tragedy. While these examples prove that female ugliness in fairy tales and their adaptations corresponds to wickedness, and the latter is equivalent to ill-temper, the question of female independence still
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
The lie slowly tears Othello apart and causes him to ruin his marriage. Yet, Desdemona stays true to her love for Othello through this hardship. In Othello by Shakespeare, Desdemona is characterized as the ideal woman, but she sacrifices her perfect reputation for her love for Othello. At the beginning of Othello, Desdemona risks her image to marry Othello without her father’s permission; she is driven by her endless love for Othello. When Desdemona marries Othello, she neglects to ask for her father’s permission for the courtship and wedding.
Hamlet’s relationship with Ophelia is a subjective, however, even though Hamlet may appears to loathe Ophelia. In , in reality, he proves he truly loves herthat truly loves her and vise versa. Throughout the course of the play, Shakespeare displays Hamlet and Ophelia’s relationship as a typical Shakespearean love story. A man and a woman fall in love, but life obstacles prevent them from marrying each other. For example, Ophelia’s brother, Laertes, and father, Polonius, forbid her from seeing Hamlet because Hamlet is a prince and is ought to marry a princess; Laertes describes Hamlet’s love to Ophelia as, “Forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting, The perfume and suppliance of a minute-No more” (1.
