Maturity gives a person understanding, understanding that allows for prosperity, and with prosperity, survival. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two people, born as enemies, defy their statuses to be together in love. Immaturity killed the two lovers, as immaturity had affected their ability to make plans and decisions. Juliet's immaturity affected her ability to make good plans in a negative way, as she had been rash when dealing with problems that arose. This can be seen in Act 4 of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, where after Friar Lawrence presented his plan to allow Juliet to avoid her arranged marriage, Juliet says, "Give me, give me!
In the play “A Midnight Dream” composed by William Shakespeare, he ponders on a quote, “that course of true love never did run smooth” (I.I.134), emphasizing that love is complicated and is not easy. The idea that love is complicated is shown through the many plays that Shakespeare composed like “Much Ado about Nothing.” In Much Ado about Nothing one can correlate the quote from “A Midnight Dream” to the love scenes between Claudio and Hero and Benedick and Beatrice. Those scenes contain the desire to love one another but complications imped them to love as shown, “Marry, once before he won it for me with false dice; therefore, your grace may well say I lost it”, demonstrating the complicated love story between Benedick and Beatrice (ii.i.265-266). Where they are hiding their feelings due to complications and secretly love one another. I find Shakespeare’s
The Blame As is the case with many others, Romeo and Juliet fell in love accidentally in the story “Romeo and Juliet,” by William shakespeare. Romeo’s unreal love for Rosaline was soon cleared with the introduction of the capulets daughter, Juliet. As can be known with any tragedy, their love failed. While many reasons remain for this failure, including fate, young age and a no rationality, it will be argued in this essay that Friar Lawrence also played a role in their love’s failure. Without thinking, Romeo and Juliet became victims of their own love chargeable to Friar Lawrence, young age and fate.
In the play A Midsummer’s Night Dream by William Shakespeare, many of the characters relentlessly pursue their goals in the face of illogical decisions, and, while fictional items such as the “love-in-idleness” flower are used to explain the character’s sudden love for each other, the play does illustrate how love and ambition can lead to unforeseen consequences. For example, when Puck accidently anointed Lysander’s eyes with the “love-in-idleness” juice, he started a chain of events leading to Lysander and Demetrius fighting over Helena while Hermia is treated as though she is worthless. Moreover, at one point, Lysander and Demetrius even threatened to duel each other when Lysander awoke after being anointed with the flower 's juice and said, "Where is Demetrius? O, how fit a word is that vile name to perish on my sword" (61). This shows how the character’s love for certain other characters, and their ambition to pursue said love, can lead to the destruction of previous relationships and lead them to make dangerous decisions.
He declares that the flower must use its full power on the man, because he has no love for the woman. Puck also confuses Hermia for Helena when he expresses sympathy for the woman. The element of mistaken identities is being demonstrated because Puck has mistaken Lysander for Demetrius, causing him to apply the love juice to Lysander. This leads to love becoming out of balance because Lysander will no longer love Hermia and will instead love Helena. This is an example of Shakespearean comedy because it is the crucial point in the plot since it causes the main problem.
Ophelia suspecting the cause of Hamlet’s madness to be his love for her is a clear example of dramatic irony as it shows her not grasping what is the real reason for him acting in that way. The conversation between Ophelia with Laertes and later on Polonius in Act 2 scene 1, leaves the audience with tension as Polonius says “This is the very ecstasy of love, / Whose violent property fordoes itself / And leads the will to desperate undertakings / As oft as any passion under heaven / That does afflict our natures.” (2.1. 102-106) The audience knows that the real reason of his madness is to distract attention from his investigation of the murder by leaving everyone concerned about his mental state. Shakespeare’s use of dramatic irony in this case
