What was the point of George killing lennie? Is that any different than a person killing someone because they accidently did something wrong? At the end of John Steinbeck's novella Of Mice and Men, George decided to kill lennie because he didn't want curly to get him first but maybe he was being selfish. Instead of killing lennie he could have killed curley.Therefore Georges decision is not justified because nothing is worth losing a friend for. Just like all the other guys in the farm George now has nothing because he got rid of Lennie.
It would be expected that the old man would be safe in his room, escaping the evil that lingered outside. The old man was not safe, despite his precautions to stop robbers or anyone outside from entering. The narrator had killed the old man because he had a creepy eye. Shortcoming had been the reason for his death and his eye was his flaw. Edgar Allan Poe leads to believe that it is possible that anyone could die because of their shortcomings, even if that man is loved.
Throughout the progression of the play Hamlet’s views on suicide shift and change. In the beginning of the play he views it as an option, a way for him to escape his troubles in the mortal life. Though, the thought that suicide could lead to him suffering an eternal damnation deterred him from committing suicide. As the play progresses he is stopped to commit the act, but his own mind, which was unable to bring itself to harm his fragile body. Hamlet then ultimately he dismisses the idea away with the excuse that it is his duty to avenge his father’s assassination.
A third and final perspective is Friar Lawrence’s. Friar Lawrence sees Romeo’s decision to kill himself as a bad intention because the Friar wanted to unite the two houses and thought he needed the two lovers alive. Shakespeare displays that good and evil depends on your frame of reference, when Romeo killed himself he viewed this as a good intention, Juliet saw his objective as a good one, Friar Lawrence saw Romeo’s purpose as a bad one. When Romeo kills himself it was a good or
Margaret Wolfe Hungerford once said, “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. The meaning of this quote is that beauty exists only in the mind of the person that contemplates it. This correlates with the beginning of the love shared by the main characters in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. Born from opposing families, Romeo and Juliet fall in love, but cannot be together because of their family feud. Their love begins from the moment they meet, and just upon looking at each other, they instantly fall in love.
However, Romeo wouldn’t have bought the poison and tried to kill himself if he had received the letter that Friar John was supposed to deliver. Friar John should have delivered the letter, but he could not because, “Finding him, the searchers of the town, Suspecting that we both were in a house where the infectious pestilence did reign, Sealed up the doors and would not let us forth”(Fri John.5.2.8-11). If Friar John had focused on delivering that letter instead of waiting for his friend who was stuck in quarantine, he could have gotten the job done with ease. That letter was of great importance and if he had just went without delay straight to Romeo instead of stopping to wait for his friend he would have gotten the letter to Romeo in time and Romeo and Juliet would have not died. Therefore the deaths of Romeo and Juliet is Friar John’s fault.
Jealousy- a state of feeling jealous or envious towards someone or something, occurs all around you and you barely notice. Jealousy is typically brought up when a person perceives a threat to a relationship between two or more people. This “threat” may be real feelings or perceived feelings. In William Shakespeare's play Othello, Othello finds out that his true love Desdemona is cheating on him with his partner Cassio. Othello is angry at this fact and he thinks that all of the clues he has gotten from Iago are true.
When Juliet drinks the vial given to her by Friar Lawrence, she does not know if it will work and just make her fall asleep, or if it has the possibility to make her never wake up again. Her venturesome behavior is clear when she says “What is it be a poison which the Friar subtly hath ministered to have me dead, lest in this marriage he should be dishonoured,”(4.3). Romeo takes a risk when he goes to the apothecary to get the poison that will end his life. This is dangerous, because both him and the apothecary could get in serious trouble for being in possession of the drug. After the apothecary sells Romeo the poison Romeo says “I sell thee poison, thou hast sold me none farewell, buy food, and get thyself in flesh”(5.1).
Throughout the play Shakespeare presents through different characters that a person should not prioritize love over life. Shakespeare shows through Romeo that a person’s well being should not be risked over love. When, Romeo finds out that Juliet is “dead”, Romeo decides to kill himself with a vile of poison, while he drinks it he says “Here’s to my love. [drinking] O true apothecary, / Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die” (5.3.119-120).
Then Friar sends John to give this plan to Romeo to come back to Verona and escapes with Juliet. But because of misunderstanding and John cannot make it to Mantua, Romeo realizes that Juliet is actually died instead. So he comes back with the poison to Verona to die beside his love, Juliet. Thus, Romeo breaks the law due to he is banishing from Verona and must stay in
