Subsequently, this works as a foreshadowing since Juliet’s point was for Romeo to not be a Montague anymore. The tragic outcome is laid out here, which means that everything that is happening will be in utter vain, since both of them can’t escape their destiny of their family
Similarly, after Cassio hears Iago’s advice to seek out Othello and beg for forgiveness, he bids a “good night [to] honest Iago” (Shakespeare, 2.3.313), who is none other than the man that diminishes his reputation and causes him to lose his title. Cassio not only does not see who causes him this strife but thanks him for it and bids him a good night. Additionally, Iago is able to completely change Lodovico 's opinion of Othello in four short words. Lodovico witnesses Othello hit Desdemona, and all Iago needs to say is that “[Othello] is much chang’d” (Shakespeare, 4.1.266). With these few words, Lodovico is completely swayed, and immediately believes Iago’s assertion that Othello is
Shakespeare 's play Much Ado About Nothing demonstrates that deceiving someone for the purpose of evil always leads to failure and deceiving someone for the purpose of love mostly leads to success. In the end, deceit is not always the best thing to do, even for the purpose of love, it is always best to tell the truth as unnecessary drama will not have to occur. Remember what the bible told Moses, "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour” (Exodus 20:16, English Standard
Main characters such as Lady Macbeth, Macbeth, Duncan, Banquo, the witches and Lennox continuously establish the theme of deception throughout the play. They seem to be good in their appearance, but in reality, they might have dark secrets that they want to hide from everyone else. Shakespeare explores the concept of deception through rhetorical devices such as, dramatic irony, characterization, and the use of symbolism Dramatic irony is a literary technique, by which the meaning of a character 's words or actions is evident to the audience/reader, yet unknown to the character. This is a literary technique that Shakespeare uses to explore to concept of deception in this play. Shakespeare uses dramatic irony firstly when Lady Macbeth orders Macbeth to kill Duncan to take over the throne.
What the Capulets did to Juliet explains why they were selfish because instead of respecting Juliet’s decision they thrash on her and say things to force her to become a wife. This disconnect with their daughter is why they were not able to save Juliet from death. The other factor that caused the demise of Romeo and Juliet was their want for their desires. For instants, Romeo did not think about the consequences of meeting with Juliet even though he was being hunted. For example, the balcony scene where Romeo is confessing his love to Juliet.
When Juliet and Romeo were faced with a conflict, they would act based upon their emotions rather than coming up with rational solutions that would benefit both parties. They were only thinking in the moment, and not of the future consequences. Unfortunately, their rash decisions led to tragic incidents and the deaths of friends, family, and themselves. The problematic impulsiveness from the main characters could be taken as a moral, that love can control one’s mind to behave recklessly, leading to troubling
In the beginning we saw Romeo in love with Rosaline and Shakespeare intentionally added that aspect of Romeos life in the beginning so we could see how easily he could “fall in love” with a new girl. This goes to show how we should not trust anything of what Romeo says he feels but Juliet falls on his every word because it is the better alternative to marrying Paris. Both Romeo and Juliet had acted impulsively with their feelings and selfishly with how they acted on them. They knew that their being together would be a hardship on themselves end others but they selfishly continued without thinking about the toll it would bring to the community. They planned to run away from the rest of the world and Juliet pretended to be dead only later for both of them to kill themselves.
In any play, book or story there is always a character or two that are looked down on and seen as "the bad guy." Despite the fact that these characters are the antagonists of the story, they often have a significant role that allows the plot to advance. In Romeo and Juliet and Anne Frank, Tybalt and the Nazi party are the main antagonists in each play. Even though their presences is different in each play, they are portrayed in distinct scenarios and conditions, they share several qualities that pull them closer together and define their significant roles as antagonistic characters. Usually, first impressions of characters are what audiences remember the most.
All along hamlet did love Ophelia but he was just afraid to show that he did love her because he was afraid that he would get hurt. On the other hand, Hamlet could have also hidden his love to protect Ophelia from getting hurt from Claudius for the revenge they both wanted on each other. For instance when hamlet first tell Ophelia that he did love her but then changes with saying that he didn't he loved her because he knew that their conversation was being
Fitzgerald hints at the fact that they might actually be soulmates that can’t be together, because while Daisy seems to have real feelings, and is actually happy for once, she wouldn’t leave Tom because she expects and knows she can get money from him and he can keep her safe in that way. The fact that Daisy allows this factor of money to get in the way of her feelings shows that she is not in love with neither Tom nor Gatsby. If she was truly in love with Gatsby, she would be with him and not let other influences get to her. Gatsby is perhaps the most controversial character when it comes to love. He gets so twisted up on the idea of love that he thinks in order for someone to love him, he needs to be rich.
Couples should be best friends and not hide things from each other because then there is no trust in the relationship. I mean I am not a marriage counselor and this is just an answer for a simple homework assignment, but married partners should be able to come to one another on things that bother them because if there is no trust then what is the point of marrying someone (for love)? Spouses should be allowed to keep secrets from each other, if it is a surprise birthday party, gift, or wonderful gesture. Secrets tend to rip relationships apart because it suggests a lack of trust and usually when one spouse keeps a secret, they lie to their husband or wife. Furthermore, lies are never positive, even if the truth is hard to hear, it is always better
