This is a woman who is unhappy and ends up killing her husband. But, this play has shown me the flaws in that society as the author depicts them such as abortion and homosexuality. I found the play to be somewhat difficult to follow along with because there were so many characters that were speaking especially in the first scene.

He loves being with his friends, acting wild, and having crushes on girls. He is very handsome, and the even his enemy Lord Capulet thinks that he is a “well-governed youth.” If I were him, I would be happy with all of the things I have going.
Throughout the novels, one may notice some patterns repeating themselves. First of all, the idea of beauty. As Emig points out, when a conventionally beautiful woman is introduced, readers expects her to be spoiled and superficial, like Rosamond (Emig 106). However, this is not equally applied to men. In fact, beautiful men are usually expected to accomplish great things, such as in the case of Daniel.
As we see through the play, rivalry never ends well is the theme responsible for the tragic ending of Romeo and Juliet because rivalry causes you to see the worst in people.

Mercutio says, “I am hurt. A plague o' both your houses!” (3.1.94).
