Then goes on to say, “I am perjured most / For all my vows are oaths but to misuse thee” (6-7). These statements both are saying that Shakespeare knows that he is breaking promises to possibly himself, his religion and others, by loving a married woman. Though he cannot put all the fault onto her, because his vows to love her were only there to exploit the love she was physically giving him. In connection to Shakespeare’s sonnet, Amy Winehouse’s You Know I’m No Good, she is singing about how she is the one in the committed relationship, yet cannot seem to stay loyal to her significant other. Winehouse may love him, but knows that she is not good for their relationship.
Dramatic irony is when the audience knows something that the actors don’t. In both stories, this tool was used to emphasise the themes and the tragedy itself. In West Side Story, Maria sings to her friends about her new love, without knowing that this new love just killed her brother (Bauch 95). With the audience knowing this information, the scenes leading up to Maria finding out, builds climax and more drama to the scene (Gale). Similarly, in Romeo and Juliet, the audience is aware that Juliet has taken the sleeping potion but Romeo isn’t, and they also know that the letter Romeo receives isn 't the letter the Friar sent to him, rather a fraudulent one.
In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, both protagonist act impetuous, which alters their lives. They act without thinking and forget that there are consequences to their actions. Both Romeo and Juliet hide the fact that they were in love and married from their families. If Romeo and Juliet really love each other they would take their time to get to know each other. They also would talk things through, but they both have their flaws.
Two of Romeo’s best friends remain ou of the loop and are not informed when the love-srtricken Romeo find love and gets married. The importance of this irony appears because the driving antagonistic force behind the tales presents itself as the lack of hate between the two families and how the two enemies fall in love, but the idea of enemies falling in love seems so ridiculous to Romeo’s closest friends that they still believe he yearns for Rosaline. Symbolism: the use of objects or facts to represent ideas or
While love is often portrayed, especially in poetry, as the ultimate source of happiness, the speaker has clearly been hurt by someone he loved in the past and is now wary of love and will take to sleeping for as long as he can to avoid falling in love. The poem closes with the line “only the song of a secret bird” (28). The speaker simply cannot ignore the voice of his “secret bird,” who is proved throughout the poem to be the only force that can pull him out of his dreamland and bring him back to reality, despite his desperate attempts to protect himself and his
Nedda feels so guilty due to her unfaithfulness to her husband which leaves her in remorse. Her affair with Tonio has been going on for awhile, and tries to set herself free while singing a song with a bird. The bird symbolizes Nedda’s freedom which she doesn’t quite have with Silvio. Canio hears her singing about her passion of another
She says “damned saint” which is an oxymoron because saints are usually heavenly, but damned refers to hell and dark things. In the first quote Juliet is upset that Romeo killed Tybalt, but in the next quote, a few lines later, she says that she was wrong for insulting him and saying bad things about him. She says these two quotes because she is confused and loves both Romeo and Tybalt, but she doesn’t know if she should be upset with Romeo or stay on his side. This is also foreshadowing because it shows that their relationship has many problems and it shows that it probably won’t last too long and will end in tragedy. Quote #20 Who said
Romeo and Juliet, a true love story? Love is a confusing thing that can leave you tossing and turning at night, can tear your heart into a million pieces, but how do you know it is really love you are feeling. Romeo and Juliet were two infatuated teenagers who are not truly in love. They were simply attracted to each other, extremely immature and reacted horribly to this situation. If you don’t concur with this statement, then consider all the evidence.
This essay discusses any scene three of the Twelfth Night concentrating on the thematic concerns, groups of characters, language, word choice, and other features. The main themes of the Twelfth Night include the folly of ambition, love as an agent of suffering, and gender uncertainty. In Act II, Scene III, Sir Andrew, and Sir Toby are drinking late in the night; Feste accompanies them, and the two request him to sing a love song. However, the two continue with merrymaking, make too much noise, and become a nuisance as they continue to drink, sing, and talk nonsense. Maria enters and tries to silence them, but it is too late since the noise has awakened Malvolio who comes and rebukes them for upsetting the family.
Moreover, Poison’s song clearly explains that love is not always about happiness, it sometimes gives a hard time. In his chorus, he repeats the statement, “Every rose has its thorn, just like every night has its dawn, just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song.” Based on these verses, singer compares his life to the rose plant. For him, rose means his singing career and the throne stand for his unfaithful girlfriend who cheated him. Throughout the song, the singer seems to be physically and emotionally disturbed by his
