Friar Laurence is to blame because of his devious and secretive nature. First, Friar Laurence agrees to perform a forbidden marriage without Romeo and Juliet’s family’s approval. Friar Laurence states, “In one respect, I’ll thy assistant to be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your household’s rancor to pure love” (Shakespeare 1031). This quote displays Friar Laurence’s devious nature because he had agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet, thinking that it would solve the rivalry between the two families even though it was against who he was, his morals, and his religion. In addition to him simply agreeing to marry the two, Friar Laurence
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.
Many people are quick to jump to conclusions on people 's personalities due to their appearance and their backstories. The townspeople of Hillsboro made assumptions of Henry Drummond by saying that he is a horrible agnostic, they even call him “the devil” and they want to restrict him from entering the town just because of the stories they hear about him. In Lawrence and Lee 's Inherit The Wind it is shown that Henry is actually a praiseworthy character throughout the play even though the townspeople labeled him as a terrible person. Throughout the play, all his motives had intelligence behind it, he is considerate to Bertram Cates and gives Bertram a sense of pride and hope, and Henry shows respect and stands up for Matthew Harrison Brady even though he is his opponent.
Romeo was deeply in love with Rosaline and wanted to be with her and get married. “For beauty starved with her severity…She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair: She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow…” (Romeo and Juliet 1.1.210-214) Romeo thought that Rosaline was everything he was looking for. Rosaline on the other hand did not care for Romeo, or from what the play tells us. Romeo moved on past Rosaline at a party the Capulets were throwing. If Romeo had not moved onto Juliet many, if not all, characters would have still been alive.
First, I believe Friar Laurence is to blame is of how unfaithful he was throughout the story. For example, “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households' rancor to pure love.” (2.3.96-99).
Because the accusers were merely young women, of course they would be telling the truth. This demonstrates how males ruled Salem, but how women could efficiently portray their purity and trustworthiness through their innocence and ability to appear naïve, as men were privileged and women were marginalised and of as lower class. The power that gender has also deeply affects the power that a name holds. Men are the ones who carry on their name, therefore it is important that their name holds a certain power or role in the town. For example, Proctor did not want to admit to being part of any witchcraft because he did not want to have his name blackened for the sake of his children and wife.
Friar Laurence states, “violent delights” 2.2.9-15) This quote shows how wize Friar Laurence is because he knows that the marriage between Romeo and Juliet was being rushed. Friar Laurence states, “the sweetest honey is loathsome” (2.6.9-15). Friar Laurence is saying that even things that are amazing at first can turn out to be terrible. Friar Laurence is a wize man who helps Romeo and Juliet in the hope that their marriage would end the two families feuds.
One example of this is in Once and Future King, during the search for the Holy Grail. Lancelot finds the reason he was not allowed to win a battle was because of his pride, “Pride made me show off and help the weaker party of the tournament.” This example proves man is evil because Lancelot did not help the weaker side for the armies benefit. But, to prove he is better than everyone else, and make himself feel higher than those around him; which makes all the other knights feel bad about themselves. which makes him evil because he is harming another for self gain.

Additionally, the witches impacted Macbeth’s choices by offering him their tricky prophecies. The blind greed that took over Macbeth’s life also impacted his choices.

Shakespeare’s Othello, an early 17th century play, is a widely renowned work that is still studied in a psychological aspect worldwide today. The eponym of the play had ambivalent feelings for Desdemona, his wife, that were prevalent in the sense that he’d gone to extreme lengths, such as; abusing her, mistreating her, and ultimately murdering her. This was all due to his inner conflict of his love, yet intense hatred for Desdemona. All of his unsureness about Desdemona, though, was due to his true flaw- insecurity in himself. He had internal feuds about whether he, a black man in 16th century Venice, was a satisfactory husband for a noble white woman.
Written in 1603 by William Shakespeare, The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice tells the story of Othello, an esteemed foreign general, who after marrying Desdemona, the beautiful daughter of a Venetian senator, is manipulated into extreme paranoia by Iago, a spiteful ensign. Having been led to think that Desdemona has committed adultery, Othello murders Desdemona, and upon realizing his deception by Iago, subsequently commits suicide. Though the plot itself is relatively simple, the subjects addressed throughout the writing constitute a story of utmost complexity and depth. At the heart of Othello is the titular character himself, a man torn between tenderness, hate, trust and jealousy. As a major player in his own tragic downfall, Othello fits multiple key aspects of the tragic hero archetype: he is essentially a virtuous person that nevertheless possesses a critical flaw, a flaw that ultimately culminates in his consumption by the worst aspects of his
