Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
Cheating on his wife is a very immoral thing to do, but it doesn’t warrant death. By modern standards it would just mean the end of the relationship. Not attending church wouldn’t even be an issue by modern standards. Of course the play took place during puritan times, but it was written in the 1900s, so the typical people who would have watched it wouldn’t have considered them sins punishable by death. John did not deserve to be accused as a witch and executed; he did not deserve his downfall.
In his last few hours at the chance to run away and save himself for the death that was awaiting him he spent the time at home, in his pool waiting for her to call. When he took his final breath he was shot by mistake. For the person who shot him had in mind that he was the killer of his wife but it was none other than Daisy herself, but Gatsby took the blame for the death anyways and ended up dying for his love. Jay Gatsby was deeply in love with Daisy Buchanan, he went to get measures to get everything for her but in the end just to have it turn to dust.
If they hadn’t kept their wedding, the dual, the plan to come back a secret none of this would have happened. Like it says her talking about their plan “appear like death and in this borrowed likeness of shrunk death thou shalt continue two- and – forty hours, and then awake as from a pleasant sleep.” So if they were already deliberating a plan on death what was to think that couldn’t lead to their real deaths? The secrets were even held between them even if they didn’t mean them to be.
Even though Lord Capulet did nothing to Romeo, he did something very ungrateful to his daughter. He told her to move out if she’s not going to marry Paris and
Daisy, despite being completely at fault, allows Gatsby to take the blame, even though she claims to have once loved him. This shows how desperate she is to keep society’s view of her untainted. She wants to remain pure in their eyes, and killing someone with a car would shatter her image. She could not claim it was an accident for it would make her look inattentive, while if she claimed it was not an accident, it would make her look callous, neither of which would benefit her reputation. Her only option left was to let Gatsby take the blame and walk away with no consequences.
Lord Capulet stopped Tybalt from attacking Romeo at the party but didn't follow up. At the party lord Capulet could have told Tybalt that he shouldn't start anything and ruin his party or he will get in trouble. Instead, he said don't do anything at the party but he fought later which then cause both himself and Mercutio to duel and then both of them ended up dead.
Mr. Gatsby always longs for the past, when Tom was not in the picture. Gatsby said to Nick, “Can’t repeat the past? Why of course you can!” (Fitzgerald 116). One may say that his devotion towards Daisy is peculiar, but it shows the magnitude of his love for
“Tom had frequently been unfaithful to her, the first time within the first three months of their marriage” (Parr). “Wilson tells Tom that he suspects “something funny” about his wife, and Tom realizes that Wilson has caught on that his wife is having an affair, although he does not know the affair is with Tom” (Lathbury 7). Tom not only strains his own marriage by being unfaithful to his wife, but he puts a large strain on the Wilson’s marriage. His deceitfulness causes tension and distance between George and Myrtle
Gatsby is the man that wouldn’t treat her wrong and has risked himself before for the sake of her when he entered illegal businesses to get money. Daisy obviously knows that he will pay some sort of consequence for claiming that he killed a woman. She is greedy and only cares
This was where the Prince said “If you do not stop these outbreaks, you’ll pay with your lives.” Although the Capulets and Montagues tried to keep their hatred to themselves, Mercutio and Tybalt, the young people of each house, did not. The reason the family feud killed Juliet Capulet was because if the feud had not existed, Romeo and Juliet could have lived in peace and harmony. Furthermore, had the feud not existed, Friar Lawrence would not have had to keep their marriage a secret.
Just days after Jean Bernard shared the ambiguous posts, his wife Cheryl seemingly responded to his messages by saying, “Sending love to all the women out there trying to love themselves in a world that constantly tells them not to.” Although, the exchanged messages weren’t clear if they were aiming with each other, many observers got concern if the couple were talking about each other. Cheryl and Bernard are yet to comment about their resentful post.
The Great Gatsby Have you ever watched someone or something change overtime? In the book F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote called The Great Gatsby, Three of the characters Tom, Nick, and Daisy all change over a short period of time. Through Nick moving to the big city and realizing how terrible and inconsiderate everyone truly is, Tom being caught up in his own world of cheating on his wife and his arrogancy, and Daisy being careless, and destroying everyone's lives in the process. Tom has changed throughout this book, he was living in his own little egotistic world which came crashing down. In the beginning Tom was organized, arrogant, rich, athletic, and loved cheating on his wife.
Not only is avarice a major issue, but the likes of pride and envy lurk in the murky waters of the Long Island Sound. The previous offenders, repeat again here. Starting with Gatsby, who embodies the classic rags to riches stories of the time. When his past is brought out from behind a curtain, it is discovered that it may be not so classic after all. James Gatz admires the well-to-do people, like Dan Cody.
What does the symbol show? The symbol selected depicts numerous burnt and crumpled cigarettes lying amongst a mass of char within an ashtray. Of the visible cigarettes, only one remains in a usable condition, and as a result, it has already been lit and thus will burn out soon. The ashtray of which it resides in is made of glass and is elegantly crafted; however, the cinders from the flames have dirtied the glass’ complexion, leaving only a clouded, translucent reflection. Together, this symbol paints a strikingly accurate metaphor of Jay Gatsby’s relationship with Daisy Buchanan.
