Romeo rarely talks about gender; contrary to most of the other men in the play. This scene is also very important, as it depicts him as a lover, not a fighter. He then realizes his unusual actions; and pursues Tybalt - to avenge Mercutio 's death. Shakespeare wants the audience to question Romeo 's actions and wonder about the true heart of his character: good or evil. After taking Tybalt 's life, Romeo begins to comprehend that he has been too rash and impulsive.
Due to the death of his close friend, Romeo grew enraged and decided to “be a man” and get revenge on Tybalt. “O sweet Juliet, / Thy beauty hath made me effeminate / And in my temper soft’ned valor’s steel!” (3.1.115-117). In this quote, Romeo is expressing how Juliet’s beauty weakened him. He feels almost a hatred towards her for making him cowardly and not able to save Mercutio’s life. Since being strong is an expected characteristic of men, Romeo feels that the absence of his bravery is to blame for the tragedy.
At times, his poetry seems less of an argument with others than an internal conversation he was having with himself. A conversation that the reader just happens to overhear. In “The Corsair,” one sees the various Byronic personae fighting for artistic dominance with none seemingly coming to the forefront most
The people of Maycomb stalk and harass an innocent man that just want’s to be accepted.The second he goes and does his own thing, people start absurd rumours about him.Children torment him on a almost day to day basis. They play thing’s such as “Boo Radley play” an offensive play meant to make fun of him. They also berate Boo by going on to his private property to try and see what he looks like.”Dill and Jem were simply going to peep in the window with the loose shutter to see if they could get a look at Boo Radley” (69). Despite Boo being ostracized by the people of Maycomb, he is still nice to them. He gives gifts to the kids that treated him wrongly, even goes as far as to save their life,while risking his own.
In fact, after Kent tried to calm him down and have him reflect on what he was doing, Lear got angry and banished Kent as well, who was his right hand man. As the play progresses, Lear’s madness is exposed again and again. One spot in particular that really demonstrated his loosening grip on reality was in scene four of act three when after talking to Poor Tom, he ripped off his clothes (3.4.107-108). He had been talking to Poor Tom after leaving his horrible daughters at Goneril’s home, venturing into a nasty storm, and was completely unphased by the crazy things that he is telling him. This part of the play was a big moment because it captured one of the key moments in Lear’s downward spiral into insanity.
A difference between the characters is that Vernon ends up being an outlaw due to his passive response to the circumstances, which is why his anxiety is taken advantage of. However, Holden becomes one as he is actively against the society that requires him to go along with the crowd and any bourgeoisie understandings, as suggested by the paragraph 3.1 “the most terrific liar.” Nevertheless, the repetition of “fucken” implies that Vernon is discontent with society as well. Little ́s thoughts are as straightforward: (page 60) ”Makes me want to puke.” Similarly, Holden Caulfield does it in his own way: (page 55) “She’s old as hell…” Both of the characters tell the audience about their experiences of the society at the time using three technical devices:1st person narration, soliloquies, and epical reports. (Bange 1982, 77), as for instance in the following: page 13: “Old Spencer started nodding”. (epical report)…pretty disgusting to watch(1st person narration)… ́They are grand people”(epical narration.
John Proctor is upset that his name must be posted for all the village to see, because it will tarnish his name. John Proctor’s character is one based on reputation, and guilt. The guilt comes from his affair with Abigail Williams. The reputation aspect comes from when he is accused by Mary Warren of trying to turn her to the Devil. I believe that John Proctor grows tired of the accusations, as to why he speaks of his false involvement with Satan in front of the town.
Aaron however, has a dark attitude every time he speaks. Even though Cassius does plot against Caesar, he does it for political reasons only, while Aaron obviously hates the world and tells Luscious that he enjoyed doing all the evil things he has done and would do it ten thousand more times. They don’t exactly show the same attitude because these characters are not part of the same play. Titus Andronicus is a revenge tragedy and Julius Caesar is a political play, therefore Cassius is a politician who does anything in his power to protect Rome and its citizens. This is also why Aaron does evil things to Rome; he had a dark tone every time he spoke because he needs to get revenge.
John tries to avoid his father and gets in an argument with Grace where he calls her a snob. If you let your fears and worries control your actions you are going to hurt people close to you. Both Grace and Smitty suffered the backlash of the protagonist’s actions. It was neither of their fault but they had to face the consequences all the same. Smitty and Grace aren’t similar at all in appearance or character, but that lends to the unjust treatment.
Tom looks down upon Jay for these reasons and deems him not worthy of his lifestyle or a girl like Daisy. After Jay’s death all the people who once used him for this party’s now judge him for his business and the false accusations of crime pinned on him. The message of the great Gatsby is that the infamous “American dream” represented by the reoccurring green light for Jay is an illusion that can ruin one’s life and make them take extreme measures to achieve it but in the end it is always out of reach never to be held by one singular
Almost more impatient however is my son, Telemachus. He misses his father dearly and is furious at the suitors for disrespecting me as well as Odysseus 's honor in his own home. He said that "the men are eating through all they have, courting his mother, and using his house as if it were theirs to wreck and plunder" (Homer 723). He has left on a mission to find his lost father. I was angry that he went behind my back but even more so, I worry for his safety.
