The main example of this is when he thinks Hero cheats on him and afterwards he shows that he is rather vindictive and impulsive given that his anger leads to the humiliation of Hero. This also shows that Claudio is quite immature. Count Claudio develops a little at the end of the play when he discovers that Hero actually was faithful whereupon he acts responsible and noble when he offers to help Leonato. Moreover, his love for Hero appears more genuine since he prays for her and seems sincerely grieving. On the other hand, he agrees to marry Antonio’s daughter who looks “exactly” like Hero, which indicates that he actually does not change throughout the story and remain immature and superficial.
This is displayed through the quote, “I am hurt.” Tybalt had not meant to harm Mercutio and fled instantly and Mercutio is clearly astounded that he’d been wounded so fatally. Despite the ancient feud that had escalated throughout Verona, no kinsman of the Montagues and Capulets, or a Montague and Capulet themselves, had were meant to perish by the hands of the opposite house. The drama rises as the audience realises that the feud has grown more serious and legal action has to be taken. Although Tybalt is violent and loathes the Montagues with a fiery passion, he had never meant to kill one or the kinsman of one and now it seems as though things will result badly from now
The theme of Family Feuds is also present in West side story between two rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. Tony, a member of the Jets, and Maria, a member of the Sharks, both fall for the other, but can 't be together because of their affiliation with the rival gangs. The leaders of each gang end up killing each other, inciting more hate and bloodlust between the two sides, much like when Mercutio and Tybalt kill each other, strengthening the wedge growing between Romeo and Juliet being driven by their parents hate. However, much of the pain found in both stories would not have been spawned if not for the impulsivity between the
Mercutio: My invocation is fair and honest. In his mistress' name I conjure only but to raise up him. (2.1.27-29) Mercutio’s witty statement provides an exquisite example of dramatic irony because he and Benvolio reference Romeo’s mistress, with Rosaline in mind, and they are oblivious to the fact that Romeo now loves Juliet. Shakespeare incorporates dramatic irony at this specific point in the rising action as a discrete message to the audience that even those who remain super close to Romeo and Juliet are not aware of their secret romantic relationships. Two of Romeo’s best friends remain ou of the loop and are not informed when the love-srtricken Romeo find love and gets married.
They were also jumping to conclusions without taking into thought others feelings and went straight into pressuring Juliet without having her consent and making a decision which is going to affect the rest of her life. Another example is that they didn't feel the need to politely kick Romeo out of the feast knowing that he was uninvited and was a Montague. When Romeo walks in, and Tybalt realizes that he is a Montague, Lord Capulet states that “He bears him like a portly gentleman, and, to say truth, Verona brags of him to be virtuous and well-governed youth. I would not for the wealth of this town here in my house do him disparagement” (I, v, 65-69). In this situation, he is supporting Romeo in this case and think it would be rude to insult him since he is well known.
It is not a sense of destiny when miscommunication leads to something so unfortunate. After Romeo so graciously interrupts the Lammas Eve supper, Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin is outraged. Because of this he challenges Romeo to a duell, where unfortunately Romeo kills Tybalt. This leads to Romeo 's banishment from Verona, where Juliet lives. From the death of Tybalt, Juliet is forced to marry Count Paris and of course, Juliet will have no part in this.
His life is full of glitter and glamour, nice cars, booze and a ton of money but he is not happy. Gatsby can only find happiness if Daisy will love him one day. Even though his fortune he can’t find joy, he shows us that money doesn’t bring
On the other hand, Antigone only stands up to her uncle, the king, because she wants to bury and pay her respects to her dead brother, who rebelled against the city. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and “Antigone” share a common theme of refusing to conform to society; however, Huck denies all of society, while Antigone only betrays the king. One similarity between the two characters is they both do what they believe is right, no matter the consequences or repercussions. Huck runs away from the widow and his father, and basically rejects all of society because he wants his freedom. In these actions, Huck demonstrates that he will follow his heart, even though his actions could result in danger and chaos.
Duke Frederick – alone with Oliver is the villain. He banishes his niece, Rosalind, from court without reason. And even Celia, his daughter, cannot mitigate his anger. Frederick mounts an army against his exiled brother but aborts his vengeful mission very suddenly, after he meets an old religious man on the road to the Forest of Ardenne. His sudden repentance and dedication to a monastic life as well as returning the crown to his brother, makes him the least satisfying of the characters.
Again, the fact that Friar John was quarantined shows how just the tiniest error, like going to the wrong friend to join you on a journey, can ruin all plans. (Shakespeare 5.2) In this scene, Friar Laurence explains how it’s very dangerous that the letter was not sent, as Romeo then has no idea that Juliet isn’t really dead and that she is faking her death. This, of course, leads to Romeo’s death, and then shortly after, Juliet’s death. What was supposed to be a plan to escape and live happily ever after as a married couple, goes horribly wrong and ends in the deaths of the two people the plan was made for in the first place. Another somewhat minor mistake that changes the future is Romeo and Juliet’s mistake to pursue their love.
