Romeo sees what he thinks is Juliet lifless and cold. He professes his love for her and kisses her. Romeo says, "Come, bitter conduct, come, unsavory guide!/ Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on/ The dashing rocks thy seasick weary bark! Here's to my love (drinking)/ Oh true apothecary/ Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss, I die."
Thus with a kiss I die.” (V.iii.95-120) Romeo picks up on the fact that Juliet is warm and that she still has color in her cheeks, which suggests she isn’t decesed but only sleeping. However, he is so angsty and care free that he notices these things and kills himself anyway, not even attempting to wake his sleeping love. While West Side Story doesn’t contain suicide, the theme of impulsivity is found through Tony, when he runs into the street begging for Gino to show himself, believing Gino has shot and killed Maria. Tony knows that Gino is searching for him and wants to harm him but runs out into the street anyway. He finds Maria alive but Gino shoots and kills him.

In Haemon’s last moments, the only thing he wanted was to lie dead “with his arm round the dead” because he wanted his last moments to be with Antigone. This scene is essential for Sophocles to cause a significant moment of catharsis.

This action scene affects the story not only because it can be labeled as the climax, but also because it keeps the reader wanting to continue to read in the story.

We were walking on, surrounded, enclosed, enveloped, being eaten by ants" (Kingsolver 299). The previous quote demonstrates a high-action scene because the village is attacked by ants.

Henri Regnault’s “Summary Execution in Granada Under the Moorish Kings” is a riveting visual experience on multiple levels. Through calculated artistic choices, Regnault ensures that the painting’s grotesque nature strikes first, shocking the viewer on a primal level.
