Another instance is after Romeo kills Tybalt, Friar Lawrence explains the positive to his banishment and points out “A gentler judgement vanished from his lips: / Not body’s death, but body’s banishment” (3.3.11-12). Shakespeare uses the words body’s death as a way to foreshadow what will happen if they end up loving each other and prioritize their love over their well being. The words body’s banishment shows how the souls of Romeo and Juliet are exiled from their bodies because they can not be together. Thus, Shakespeare uses foreshadowing to show the death of Romeo and Juliet, even though the audience knows and proves that they choose love over life Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy that has started to become present in teens lives. The play shows that you should not put love over your well being as there will be fatal
And thou and Romeo press one heavy bier.” (III.ii.60-61) In Act 3, Scene 3 Romeo much rather be dead than be banished and Friar Lawrence explains how ungrateful he is to be alive and that Juliet still loves him. Similarly, in Act 4, Scene 3 where Juliet is about to take the sleeping potion, she expresses how she would not mind if the potion killed her or caused her to go insane, but if she was alive and well she kill herself immediately. Doubleness is also part of theme in the story. Doubleness is deception or dissimulation. When Mercutio gets stabbed by Tybalt he says “Ay, ay, a scratch; marry ‘tis enough/ Where is my page?
Hunter Wolff Miss H LA Is a person you just meet worth taking your life away, and is person from and family that your family despise worth being with. These are the type of questions you would have to ask yourself if you were in Romeo and Juliet's shoes. Mainly I believe that the biggest reason Romeo and Juliet did not live was because of themselves. When they knew that they shouldn't be together they should have just moved on and live out there lives instead of getting all dramatic and going to the lengths of killing themselves. Though I do not believe this is the only reason that resulted in their death.
Together these facts validate that impulsive decision can lead to the harm of others and themselves. During the famous play Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare established the idea that using decisions based on emotions such as grief and anger, can lead to unthoughtful and poor decisions. Like how Romeo decision to kill tybalt overall lead to his and Juliet's death. If Romeo were to stand back and look at the bigger picture Romeo and Juliet could be together without any
Possessing a knowledge of the aspects of life that one values and staying true to those values leads to the understanding of what it truly means to be alive. The ability to understand what is truly important is something that Hamlet struggles with until his death. This lack of perception proves to be Hamlet’s downfall, as it is the root cause of his indecision. “Contagion to this world. Now could I drink hot blood /And do such bitter business as the bitter day / Would quake to look on.
“A man with too much ambition cannot sleep in peace” as stated by Maxx Mitchell. This statement describes that the people will have some trade off in order to pursue something they have, to give up on something. However, the goal is really the choice It could lead to different consequences either positive or negative. Shakespeare 's play Macbeth is described as a tragic character and his action has been influenced by his wife. Shakespeare believes that ambition, when taken too far leads to our destruction as shown through Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
Shakespeare does so by writing, “To be or not to be, that is the question: / Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer / The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, / or to take arms against a sea of troubles… / ...To die: to sleep” (3.1.56-60). Hamlet here is questioning his own existence and his purpose to live. He is now reached a stage of despair where he is losing sight of truly why he must be alive. This emotion becomes so prominent as he continues on more describing life’s difficulties and how easy it would be to put a permanent end to them by ultimately putting an end to his own life. This emotion and use of parallel structure reveals a distinct development in his character as he has now moved from shock and anger, to a despair yet this will later on in the play
Macbeth says,” The Prince of Cumberland! That is a step on which I must fall down, or else o'erleap, for in my way it lies. Stars, hide your fires; let not light see my black and deep desires. the eye wink at the hand; yet let that be which the eye fears, when it is done, to see. (1.4.55-60) Many people think they can change their own fate but whatever happens it is because of another action and sometimes you may not like it but what really matters is how we deal with our fate.
In the “To be or not to be” soliloquy, Hamlet says, “To die, to sleep/ No more—and by a sleep to say we end/ The heartache and the thousand natural shocks/ That flesh/ is heir to—’tis a consummation/ Devoutly to be wished!”(3.1 61-64) Proving that he is so distraught about taking action against his uncle that he believes that death would be an easier alterative to losing his purity and innocence. He ultimately decides that suicide is not the answer, “With this regard their currents turn awry/ And lose the name of action,” (3.1 88-89) because he cannot take the uncertainty of the afterlife. This entire soliloquy also highlights Hamlets delayed action to his problems. Does he die or does he live? He spends a considerable amount of time on that one question alone.
The regret he would receive is in knowing that there could have been other ways to help Lennie escape. He would have contemplation of there being other options instead of barbarically killing his only companion off for the sake of putting Lennie out of his misery. It’s possible for George to feel some sort of repentance for what he did to Lennie. A major theme that Steinbeck was portraying in the novel was friendship and I feel he inserted the scene where George kills Lennie in the book to show the ultimate price of friendship. Also, to show the extreme lengths that companionship can take a person, but what great depth of despair and regret it can cause in the long run.
