One thing he sacrificed was his relationship with the Capulets. Their families were already feuding, but Romeo got caught up in the tension and made things worse. By going to the party in the first act of the story, he provoked Tybalt. This later leads to conflict in the story that results in both Tybalt and Mercurio getting killed and getting Romeo banished. Tybalt said, “‘Patience perforce with willful choler meeting.
In the introductory scene, he proclaims,”What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word, As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.” (Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet). In the scenes involving both Tybalt and a Montague, it is Tybalt who is trying to disturb the peace and draw blood. When Romeo and other Montague family members crashed a Capulet party, it was Tybalt that wanted blood. Romeo went to get a glimpse of love, not with the intentions to start trouble.
Romeo thinks that his blurred sense of reality due to romanticism has let Mercutio die to Tybalt. Romeo furiously states, “[His] very friend, hath got this mortal hurt / In [his] behalf. [His] reputation stained / With Tybalt’s slander…” (III.1.115-117). This shows how complicated Romeo is, from being dramatic about being romantic and then immediately becoming very serious and furious at Tybalt for the death of his friend Mercutio. The drama from Romeo and Juliet mainly comes from the complexity of all the different characters in the play.
His ultimate choice is choosing between trusting Desdemona or Iago. Iago’s influence on Othello is so great that he is transformed into a man that no one recognizes. His jealousy is terrifying because of the noble way he originally held himself. Othello does not even recognize the man he becomes and refers to himself as “he that was Othello” (“Othello.” Shakespeare A-Z 471). Othello’s jealous spirit drives him to murder his wife; he cannot stop his obsession with the alleged affair until she is harmed (“Othello.” Shakespeare for Students 663).
“What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the/ word as I hate hell, all Montagues and thee, coward!” (I.i.ll.72-74). Tybalt does not realize that fighting over a simple disagreement is completely unnecessary yet since he is so hot-tempered believes that he is above everyone else. Even Capulet doesn’t fight as much as Tybalt. Later in the play after causing a fight with Romeo, Mercutio steps forward and Tybalt kills him.
Macbeth begins to act more rash and either over thinking his actions or not thinking about them at all. This sudden behavior is due to stresses put on him by his wife. This shows that his morals are corruptible. One of the first signs is in the moments leading up to King Duncan’s murder. Macbeth hallucinates and wonders aloud “Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible to feeling as to sight, or art thou but a dagger of the mind, a false creation, proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?”(Macbeth II.ii.36-39).
Isabella too is in constant danger because of Manfred’s obsession to marry her. “I desired you once before,” said Manfred angrily, ... “In short, Isabella, since I cannot give you my son, I offer you myself.” Manfred’s angry tone accentuates the danger that is placed upon Isabella as the perception is given that he is forcing himself upon her. This is a result of context as women were perceived as unable to help themselves and thus a
This demonstrates that family ties, even if not blood related, have serious impacts on Hamlet’s life which causes misery to overwhelm his life; this misery prohibits his success. During Ophelia’s funeral, the drama between Hamlet and Laertes magnifies which causes more hate between their families. Laertes provokes Hamlet into fighting him by Ophelia’s grave, with their families there to witness, by saying “[t]he devil take thy soul” (V, i, 243). Following this mishap, Laertes is informed by Claudius of a strategy to end Hamlet’s life in the near future. This immoral conflict being conducted in a place that already is commemorating death displays that they are inclined to cause more people to die.
In the play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare’s use of stylized language promotes a deeper understanding of Juliet’s struggle with her conflicting feelings for Romeo. Specifically, she shows her adversity through her monologue of paradox. In this scene, her nurse confesses to Juliet that Romeo, her beloved husband, has killed Tybalt, her kinsman. This leaves Juliet conflicted; she doesn’t know what to do, how to act, or who to choose. This passage is important because it not only shows that Juliet is confused about her feelings for Romeo, but also that she feels as though she is a victim of deceit, and for one fleeting moment, is unsure of whether or not she can trust him.
While Hamlet is hesitant Laertes is brash and impulsive. He even states that in his confrontation with King Claudius “Let come what comes, only I 'll be revenged Most thoroughly for my father.” (4.5.148-154) Laertes does not do much thinking when it comes to avenging his father. The opposite is said about Hamlet who spends too much time contemplating whether he should avenge his father. They both were in the same situation but went about it very differently. In the final confrontation between Claudius, Laertes and Hamlet their colliding motives leads to the death of each person.
First of all, one person who is responsible for the tragic ending of the play is Tybalt. The first reason because of his anger with Romeo for falling in love with Juliet and Mercutio tries to defend Romeo which ends up causing Tybalt to fight Mercutio and kill him, and then Romeo killed Tybalt for taking Mercutio life away. The second reason is also because of tybalt having beef with romeo and mercutio which causes many hatred between the capulets and montagues, and so romeo couldn 't marry juliet. Therefore, Tybalt is clearly responsible for the play’s tragic ending.
Romeo’s rash behaviors in Romeo and Juliet resulted in many negative consequences, and he consistently acted impetuously that impacted others in an unnecessary way. The actions he committed to were ideally the cause of the death for three major characters . If Romeo would have not been so eager to immediately fix a problem and take a few moments to consider all of the possible consequences, these characters may have been able to live happily ever
Good Mercutio!(3.1.84-86). Romeo, unknowing of what to do quickly decides to get in between of Tybalt and Mercutio attempting to stop the fight. Romeo ends up Blocking Mercutio letting Tybalt Thrust his rapier in Mercutio 's heart killing him and queuing Tybalt 's hastily exit. Due to Romeo 's ignorance he did not listen to his dream and also is at fault for
His arrogance and anger cost him his life but with the warning “Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the heart of fools.” he might have been spared that consequence. However, because of his actions he can be described as vain. This is because throughout almost the entire play he is out to kill someone, namely Romeo. This also proves that he is very self-centered because of his reasons for attacking Romeo which was: crashing a Capulet party and being a Montague. His ill-wished actions caused a severe outcome.
His reluctance creates a sense of commotion, allows the readers to understand that Oedipus is the killer; this is also illustrated after he expresses that “[his] grief is [Oedipus’](38).” The grief he contains prepares the audience for the catastrophic tragedy. Nevertheless, Oedipus fails to comprehend Teiresias’ warning, and calls him “cold, stubborn, fool (38)” out of anger; he could no longer resist the need of unmasking the murderer. The diction he chooses demonstrates the way he scorns the prophet, considers him to be puny as he does not provide him with the answer he wants. Finally, Teiresias is fed up after Oedipus shunned him, and blurts out “the plague is [Oedipus](39).” He discloses, Oedipus is the root of the problem that arose in Thebes; Oedipus is shaken by the statement, and deems that he is a victim of conspiracy. He conjectured that his relative Kreon hired Teiresias to plot schemes against him because of the substantial amount of money and power he bores.
