During the famous play Romeo & Juliet Shakespeare uses emotions to establish Characters intentions, and more specifically he uses the expressions of grief and anger. Which he uses to demonstrate a higher emotional degree of impulsive decisions. By establishing decisions based on emotions such as grief and anger, can lead to unthoughtful and poor decisions; this is the case with Romeo’s fury and rage which leads to conflict with Tybalt. Along with his overwhelming grief of Juliet's death which conclusively leads him to kill himself by his own hands. A personal example of a hasty decision in my life would be decisions based out of acrimony and how the outcomes of my actions were poor and unthoughtful.
William Shakespeare, one of history’s legendary writers, created the play Macbeth with a tragedy that still burns with pity and sadness for Macbeth to this very day. From Macbeth’s tragic flaws, his continuous errors in judgement, to his complete downfall, this character actively demonstrates many characteristics of a Shakespearean tragic hero. The character Macbeth is a tragic hero in the play Macbeth. One of the reasons how Macbeth is a tragic hero is by his tragic flaws. In the play, the audience receives a sense of Macbeth’s ambition from this quote: “I have no spur/to prick the sides of my intent, but only/vaulting ambition, which overlaps itself/and falls on the others” (1,7,25-28).
Love is the number one reason for teen suicides. Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare shows reasons why this statement is true. The tragedy is set in Verona, where the descendants of feuding families fall in love. The love between Romeo and Juliet’s leads them to their deaths.

The theme of love is often associated with peace and kindness. However, in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers’ suicidal impulse shows love as a cause of self-destructive violence, as seen through their thoughts, words and actions. Firstly, Romeo and Juliet’s suicidal thoughts reveal the violence caused by their love. In other words, it is their intense passion for each other that leads to their contemplation of suicide. For instance, when Romeo is told of Juliet’s supposed death, he immediately thinks of killing himself and begins to plan his suicide, as demonstrated by the following quote: “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight.
From the very beginning of the play, Shakespeare, is holding fate to blame for the death of the two lovers. In the line “from forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life” foreshadowing, metaphor and alliteration are used to show how Romeo and Juliet’s love would end in tragedy. Foreshadowing is used to create suspense leading to a later scene in the play where the lover’s suicide. The metaphor “star-crossed lovers” suggest the prophetic alignments of the stars are against them. The lovers are ill-fated from the start.
This is not the only instance where Romeo faces despair; in Act Five he also feels despair when Balthasar brings him the unfortunate news. Once again, Romeo goes to drastic measures to try to kill himself, succeeding in his attempt. Impatience is another factor in his intemperateness. In the last scene, Romeo rushes to Juliet’s tomb with
