“Friend show their love in times of trouble, not in times of happiness”(Euripides). According to Merriam-Webster 2017, “Friendship is one person attracted to another by affection or esteem”. Friendship to me means, you can only get so far by yourself, however if you have good friends you can go forever. In my opinion, friendship is about Romeo and Mercutio's bond of jokes, the motif fun amongst friends, and marching band. In William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” Act 1, readers learn that sometimes, you have to go with the flow and trust friends and it will turn out well for you.
has Romeo go to a party that the Capulets were having and while Romeo was in search for the girl he supposedly loved named Rosaline but while finding out that she was not there he found another girl he had lay his eyes on. Her name was Juliet: “If I profane with my unworthiest hand this holy shrine, the gentle fine is these: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss . . . “ (Shakespeare act 1.scene 5.
In the book The Outsiders,by S.E Hinton I believe there are many great examples of friendship especially inside the gang of greasers.There were many good examples of friendship in this great book but in the end I choose to pick the friendship between Johnny and Ponyboy. Throughout this novel Ponyboy and Johnny stick with each other until the end.Throughout the novel there are numerous examples of how Ponyboy and Johnny help each other out and show why they are great friends. As I said in the introduction paragraph there are many examples of friendship throughout the novel with Johnny and Ponyboy. I am going to talk about three of them.The first example that I am going to talk about is when the two boys were jumped by a group of Socials.The
Stereotyping is an unfair way to judge people because you never know their whole story. It is wrong to judge someone just by who they hang out with. In The Outsiders, Cherry, a Soc, and Ponyboy, a greaser, start talking at a Drive-in movie. As they are walking to grab snacks, Cherry is telling Ponyboy that not all Socs are bad; Just like not all greasers are bad. “‘That’s like saying all you greasers are like Dallas Winston.
After Puck put the love potion on Lysander and he fell in love with Helena, he has been following her around nonstop. As Helena goes to find Hermia, Lysander follows close behind. “Lys: Why should you think that I should woo in scorn? Hel: You do advance your cunning more and more.” This is Lysander and Helena talking to each other, Lysander saying why would I mock you if I love you and Helena saying you just get better and better at your jokes, but in a sarcastic way. This shows the relationship between Hermia and Helena in Shakespeare 's a Midsummer’s Night
(Chbosky, The perks of being a wallflower). However, she is a good friend to Charlie. Her honest concern for him is pretty clear. When Charlie starts to freak out because of his repressed memories, she handles it with elegance. And although she has to leave for college shortly after Charlie's breakdown begins, she comes back to visit and takes him through a tunnel that he
A tragic hero is a person who is nobel person, is likable, they are high on the social standards and they have flaws to lead to their downfall. This usually makes them a person who is very likable by everyone and makes it seem like their death was very unattended and not needed. They make us feel bad about their death basically. Romeo shows us this in many ways through out the play Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. The first thing that popped out to me about Romeo being a tragic hero and all is that Lord Capulet himself says that Romeo is a good guy and praises him when Tybalt comes up to him and says that Romeo is at the party( Act1.Scene 5.Lines 64-70).
In The Outsiders, S.E Hinton presents the idea that teenagers can break through stereotypes if they look at life through another perspective; as shown in the book when Ponyboy starts to talk to Cherry and Randy and realizes the stereotypes about them are false. One very important scene that reveals the theme is when Ponyboy and the the rest of his group go to the movies and meet two Socs, Cherry and Marcia. As the movie goes on, Ponyboy and Cherry continue to talk and realize that their prior thoughts they had about each other and each other’s group is false. For example, when Cherry says, that “things are rough all over” (Hinton 35). Stereotypically Socs have money, cars, and are supposed to have this perfect life
He boasts about his wisdom and clarity in understanding the way society works. While this is true, he does understand society, he does not understand his daughters, particularly Nise, who he likens to a female Don Quixote. There is also verbal irony in the second act, when Laurencio speaks about love, stating it can move mountains. His commentary on love is verbally ironic because the idealism he has when he speaks of love is completely contrastable to how he treats love, as a financial incentive and a way of ensuring he has enough money to correspond to his noble blood. Verbal irony is apparent is Lope de Vega’s own narrative, the turning point of the play is when Finea has a breakthrough of sense and develops a strategy into duping everyone she is still la dama boba to solve the problem of Liseo’s renewed interest in her.
