Tybalt thinks highly of himself and that’s what causes his downfall. When Tybalt hears the news of Juliet, a Capulet, in love with Romeo, a Montague, Tybalt strongly opposes this idea and tries to fix it himself. Tybalt 's overconfidence and rude manner causes him to deal with many fights, talks with Capulet, and the aftermath of stabbing Mercutio all expose Tybalt 's arrogance in the play. Tybalt has a conversation with Capulet that exposes his rude manner. Tybalt hears Romeo talking and immediately assumes that “by his voice, should be a montague” (1.5.61).
Hamlet Hamlet is a tragedy play written by William Shakespeare. It is a play that involves numerous deaths. Hamlet is the main character in the play and he is depicted as an insane person. Hamlet faked his madness so as to confuse Claudius and his assistants in order to find the truth about the death of his father. He acted strange when he was around the king and his attendants and this is evident when he tells his friend Guildenstem that "his uncle-father and aunt-mother are deceived" (Shakespeare).
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
However, for being the most spectacularly unnatural character in the entire play, he has the most natural transformation out of the all the other characters. He goes from arguing with his wife and tricking her to fall in love with a man with an ass-head, to calling Titania, “his sweet queen”(Shakespeare 4.1 59). This is because he had just witnessed first-hand the consequences of incorrectly tampering with true love as Puck had done earlier when he confused Lysander for Demetrius and made him fall in love with the wrong woman. After seeing that he had realized how special what he had with Titania was. However, his transformation was incomplete since he really only changed now that he got everything that he wanted, but he is no longer causing any conflict with anyone in the story thus the completion of the
Hamlet and Ophelia “This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. I did love you once… I loved you not” (3.1.114,119). Confusion clouds the audience’s judgement reading this quote from Hamlet. His paradox insinuates that he is insane and truly did not love her. Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme.
The power of Eros love is evident in the play as true love continuously triumphs over Phileo love. The troubles of romance presented in the play present conflict that ultimately damages the friendship love of the Athenians through the irrational actions of the lovers. The Phileo love between Hermia and Helena is at stake because of the romantic love that exists between the different parties in the play. Helena mistakes her obsession with Demetrius with true love despite his poor treatment of her. However, Demetrius loves Helena’s friend, Hermia, and wishes to marry her.
Although Helena had a strong Philia love for Hermia she betrayed her by telling Demetrius their plans to elope. Helena thought that by betraying her friend through telling Demetrius their plans, he would once again love her which was not the case. In the play when Hermia address her friend as fair, we see Helena agitated and responds by telling her, “Call you me fair? That fair again unsay, Demetrius loves your fair, O happy fair” (1.1.181-182). This shows how Helena is angry at her friend because the man she loves is in love with Hermia.

When Puck mistakes Lysander for Demetrius, he wakes up to Helena and falls in love. To try and fix the situation, Oberon puts the juice on Demetrius’s eyes and soon after wakes up to Helena. Puck is filled with joy as the entertainment of the four young lovers comes together: “Shall we their fond pageant see? /Lord what these mortals be!” (III.ii.114-115). It has been noted that Puck can be seen not only as a spectator of the play’s
Shakespeare’s “problem play”, ‘The Winter’s Tale’, is an unusual one considering the very different tones within the beginning and end of the play. In the beginning we witness the tragedy side to this tragicomedy. This play begins with so much melancholy and despair that it becomes difficult for the audience to foresee the happy ending. In the last two acts we see the transition from tragedy to comedy as the two warring Kings reunite. Typical of any Shakespearean comedy, the play ends with a romance ending.
