Where Juliet says “O happy dagger, this is thy sheath” (5.3.174-175), Juliet is about to kill herself because she wakes up with Romeo dead beside her. Of all behaviors killing is the most violent, even killing yourself. Part of this is lust, not love. This lust causes Juliet to think she couldn’t live without her Romeo, as a result she killed herself. In the case of Romeo and Juliet’s death a lot can be held responsible, but Juliet holds the most blame.
Too many emotions can cause disasters In the play “Romeo and Juliet”, a tragedy occurs because of an overwhelming amount of mixed emotions from all the main characters. This play proves that tragedy can strike when too many emotions are present. These emotions include anger, sadness, and love. All these emotions played a role to the tragedy at the end of the play where everyone ends up committing suicide. In the first 2 scenes of the play, Romeo is depicted as a depressed individual that lusts for a woman named “Rosaline”, even though he knows he cannot have her.
Feelings of sorrow and yearning are expressed in the song “Black” by Pearl Jam as the singer describes his heartbreak and remorse over a breakup with his girlfriend. Examples of psychological agony the singer endured are expressed throughout the song, for example when the singer states: “…my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds.” In these lyrics, we see that the singer’s hands are “bitter” and “chafe”. To chafe is to rub raw and the idea of hands being rubbed raw so as though to see the bare skin that lies underneath inflicts ideas of agonizing pain. The word “bitter” means to be brutish or coarse. This can refer to the singer becoming disgruntled and indignant after his girlfriend left him.
He then drowns and the rest of the poem talks about how unfair and dramatic his death was, “she choked him and beat him to death, for a joke...She shouted for joy.” The author uses negative diction, showing passion for violence. It makes the audience feel like they absolutely have no sense of control over their surroundings. Therefore, allusions can be mashed under things (sea is beautiful but cruel) making us unsecured. Everything must go on, despite our
Zeus loved Aegina and she bore his son, which caused Hera to get jealous. She brought upon the island a deadly disease, wiping out thousands of people. In the book, "She was angry because Zeus loved Aegina, the maiden for whom the island was named, and whose son, Aeacus, became its king" (Hamilton 436). Her jealousy almost destroyed an entire city, which proves that the emotion can cause severe consequences. In the end, the book had multiple stories about love and happiness, but jealousy seemed to be one of the important themes.
Dying with their sins seems to be the greatest fear the townspeople have and Hawthorne describes it as, “Dying sinners cried aloud for Mr. Hopper, and would not yield their breath till he appeared”(10). It is a great vulnerability to bare their deepest mistakes to someone who sees all and judges them for the rest of eternity. “The black veil involved his own spirit in the horror with which it overwhelmed all others”(6) the minister had seen his reflection in a glass cup, reminded of the horrible sin the veil represent for him. He quickly runs, the fear of the known chasing him and taunting him by hanging in front of his face, ever so reminding that he shall die with it.
This creates an inner conflict within each character that is seen through various chapters from their viewpoint. For example, in chapter two we get a glimpse of the chaos in Vera’s mind regarding the time she let a boy die under her care. She thinks, “The sea...So peaceful today-sometimes so cruel… The sea that dragged you down to its depths. Drowned... Found drowned… Drowned at sea… No, she wouldn’t remember… She would not think of it! All that was over…” (Pages 28-29) This shows the inner struggle that many of the characters experience throughout the novel.
She tells Friar Laurence how “God join’d [her] heart and Romeo’s, thou [their] hands; and ere this hand, by thee to Romeo seal’d,”. Shakespeare used this monologue to illustrate Juliet’s distraught emotions towards the situation. This characterizes her as immature because teens are usually over dramatic and think that not being able to love someone is the end of the world. Juliet is also indirectly characterized when Friar Laurence says “If, rather than to marry County Paris, thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself,”. Juliet is characterized as being desperate because she is at the point where she would rather die than live a life without Romeo.
In “All Fall Down” Ally Carter demonstrates the theme by making the reader feel two different ways towards the Scarred Man using Grace. At first she makes the reader abhor the Scarred Man by using their sympathy for Grace. “I push myself farther into the little corner. I Am trying to disappear” and “The scar that has haunted my dreams every night since the moment my mother died-from the moment the Scarred Man killed her.” Both statements were used when she first met the Scarred Man and both further develop the feeling of hatred towards the Scarred Man. Since he killed grace 's mother,traumatized, and put her into a state misery.
Another element in this novel is Melinda’s inner conflict, man vs. self. What Melinda has been through greatly affected her everyday life. She struggles with depression, dislikes her appearance, and feels ashamed of herself for something that isn 't her fault: “I want to confess everything, hand over the guilt and mistake and anger to someone else...even if I dump the memory, it will stay with me, staining me” (Anderson 51). Andy Evans, the senior who raped her, made her feel worthless. This situation is much like the one in the novel The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
The reason she had a very big impact on this tragedy, is because she went to the Friar and got a sleeping drug. It made everyone think she was dead. It especially made Romeo very sad, he thought about killing his self. The next character in the book “Romeo and Juliet” that also had a very devastating impact on the tragedy was Romeo. He thought that Juliet was dead,(which she wasn’t) so Romeo stabbed and killed himself.
Death is a result. Whether it is from a fault of a person, a disease or an action, it is always a result of something. At the end of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet commit suicide and their are two people at fault for this. Juliet and her father Lord Capulet are to blame for the death of the two lovers because of the irrational decisions made by Lord Capulet and his daughter 's marriage, Juliet’s quick decision to use a fake poison that could have many different outcomes, and how Juliet relied too heavily on other people. Some ay say that their are more people who helped to lead up to the After the death of Tybalt, Juliet was changing her mind frequently about things including her marriage.
