With his father just being murdered by his uncle Claudius and Polonius banning the relationship between him and Ophelia, the only thought running through Hamlet’s mind was anger and revenge. The acts of violence throughout the play comes in three different forms; murder, suicide, and combat. Polonius is unexpectedly murdered, Ophelia goes mad and commits suicide, and Hamlet provokes a battle with Laertes that ends poorly for both men. All three of these violent acts can be traced back to clouded judgements, indecisiveness, anger, revenge, and heartbreak. Shakespeare created such acts of violence to keep the readers on their toes and informed, but also to invoke questions.
Your houses!” (Shakespeare, 3.1.112-115). As Mercutio’s final demand, is blaming his death on the hatred of the houses. This is the first death in the whole play, which is from the plague (Romeo and Juliet's love) where he curses them for basically killing him. He asks Benvolio to find him a house because both of them are just as bad and dies as a side character. Some people may rebuke that love had created them and was not made from hatred.
Conflicts among families and friends Conflicts among families and friends are destructive and only demolish relationships and hurt innocent people. When hateful behavior is not only accepted, but encouraged in families it can only end tragically. In the classic Shakespearian play “Romeo and Juliet” the storyline predominantly revolves around a feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. Shakespeare emphasizes the effects of hatred between families through the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, Mercutio, and Tybalt. The feud ends with numerous deaths including Romeo, Mercutio, Paris, Juliet, and Tybalt.
In contrast to this, Macbeth is consumed by his ambition after being influenced by the witches and his wife. “I murdered you, my son, against my will- you too, my wife…”(1461-1462) Creon regrets his actions by the end of the play. From these lines Sophocles made it even more clear that if you defy the gods, you will surely regret your actions. “Though Birnam Wood be come to Dunsinane and thou
This could be a sign that he is becoming mad, since he is blaming everything on Hamlet without thinking anything through. His rage ends up turning him mad, as he is willing to take his own life for his revenge and even wishes to kill himself to be with Ophelia in the
The prince says “Romeo slew him; he slew Mercutio” (Shakespeare 3.1.178). These two decisions resulted in two deaths and Romeo being banished from Verona. Romeo’s banishment brought about many tears from Juliet. His banishment was the reason a plan had to be devised to get him and Juliet together. Communication failed because Romeo was in Mantua.
Due to the death of his close friend, Romeo grew enraged and decided to “be a man” and get revenge on Tybalt. “O sweet Juliet, / Thy beauty hath made me effeminate / And in my temper soft’ned valor’s steel!” (3.1.115-117). In this quote, Romeo is expressing how Juliet’s beauty weakened him. He feels almost a hatred towards her for making him cowardly and not able to save Mercutio’s life. Since being strong is an expected characteristic of men, Romeo feels that the absence of his bravery is to blame for the tragedy.
Mercutio’s response to his fate, however, is notable in the ways it differs from Romeo’s response. Romeo blames fate, or fortune, for what has happened to him. Him slaying Tybalt was his fate. This then leads to probably the most fatal and important part of Act III… The prince banishing Romeo. Because of this only do Romeo and Juliet die, because Romeo is in another city they can’t communicate properly and the two star-crossed lovers commit suicide.
