However, Mercutio could not bear to stand down without a fight, his actions later on ended his life. Romeo was enraged with the death of his best friend and said, “Now, Tybalt, take thee “villain” back again that late thou gavest me, for Mercutio’s soul is but a little way above our heads, staying for thine to keep him company: either thou or I, or both must go with him.” (3.1.121-125) This line and his rage is what caused Romeo to kill Tybalt. The tragic events caused Mercutio (Montague) and Tybalt (Capulet) to lose their lives. The death of the two love ones and friends of Romeo and Juliet provided a balance of characters between the two
Shakespeare writes the play giving the audience the final decision of who is at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Throughout the play fault can be placed on Romeo. He makes a variety of choices that lead to Juliet’s death and his own. Romeo is constantly blaming his own careless behaviors on fate. He is warned not to attend the party but he smirks at fate by saying, “But he that hath the steerage of my course/Direct my sail,” (1.4.119-120).
In the play The Tragedy of Hamlet Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare, Hamlet is a character full with complex emotions and revenge that confronts the readers or audience with his scenes of violence. Hamlet acts of violence is the plays way to push the play to its climax and to contribute the hidden meaning of the play. In act four, Hamlet lets his true internal emotions that has built up about his mother affair with his uncle, with so much rage Hamlet kills polonius in cold blood without even thinking, this scene contributes to the play because it show how Hamlet rage for revenge for his father has turned into real madness that will never end well for the characters who intertwine with him. In act 3, Hamlet goes off on Ophelia for crushing his heart and calls her
In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt is responsible for his own death because he has a history of killing, he has an attitude that instigates on problems, and he has grudges against Romeo. Tybalt is at fault for his own death because he has killed other people before. Romeo exclaims to Tybalt, after Tybalt killed Mercutio, “He’s alive and victorious, and Mercutio’s dead?” (3.1.84). In this quote, Romeo is wailing that a great person was just killed by Tybalt. He thinks Tybalt shouldn’t be alive
Death and tragedy engulf the people of Verona, who is to blame for this big mess? If you go back to the beginning of William Shakespeare 's play “Romeo and Juliet” it is easy to see this tragedy wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Mercutio and his tendency to meddle in other people’s lives. First he convinced Romeo that his love for Rosaline wasn’t worth it and he needed to get over her. He then led Romeo to his horrific fate when he forced Romeo to crash the Capulet party, where he would first meet his future bride Juliet. If it weren’t for his arrogance and selfishness Mercutio and Tybalt wouldn’t have gotten in a fight, causing Romeo’s banishment.
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know 'st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.” when he finds out that Juliet is dead, but doesn’t know she faked her death. Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man.
Foreshadowing is used to stubbly warn the audience of the approaching tragedy. Friar Lawrence alludes to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet that will result from their rushed marriage when he tells Romeo in ACT 2, scene 6, line 9, “These violent delights have violent ends.” With violent delights referring to their fiery passion and violent ends to their deaths. Another feature used is simile, in ACT 1, scene 4, line 26 Romeo uses a simile when talking to Mercutio, “Is love a tender thing? It is too rough, too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn.” In this simile Romeo compares love to a thorn. Ultimately, Romeo and Juliet beautifully written play, that explores the tragedy of forbidden love through plot, literary devices and aesthetic features.
The next act of violence in this act is the duel between Laertes and Hamlet in court. This brings back that dramatic irony because readers know Claudius tells Laertes to kill Hamlet. “To cut his throat i’ th’ church.” (4.7.123) This led to many other problems that would later occur. After Laertes and Hamlet finish dueling in the court, Gertrude decides to celebrate by drinking. Little does Gertrude know, the drink is poisoned.
In fact, in the prologue it says “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life;” the phrase star-crossed means full of bad luck. So this play is meant to have bad luck (or bad decisions?). When Romeo and Juliet decide to get married or Juliet decides to fake her death and not tell Romeo. Those decisions were foolish and self-centered decisions. Even Romeo stabbing himself after he finds Juliet was a rash decision.
“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day”, the repetition and personification used shows the significance is to show Macbeth 's discontent with life. Life no longer has meaning, now that the love of his life is dead. This also shows he doesn’t realize the contribution she made into making him a heartless killer and that now he is possibly oblivious to it all. Macbeth at the beginning was valued and was genuinely a noble man, where as to this point he has let himself be misguided to become a man of destruction now called a “tyrant, bloodier villain, dead butcher”. Macbeth refuses to take responsibility for all the pain he has caused and he doesn’t want to die without a fight, although this is the finish to all of Macbeths destruction he does not want to kill Macduff “Of all men else I have avoided thee; my soul is too much charged with blood of thine already” this metaphor used is showing how he already has so much blood on his hands, he doesn’t need any more, this can be seen as slight integrity but he still goes on to fight even though its already known of his deeds, “They have tied me to a stake; I cannot fly, but bear like I must fight the course”.
