However, not for this boy, his drunken; aggressive dad beats him up with a beer bottle that makes him the one who is unreliable and has the worst influence. These are ironic because the person we admire is actually the “worst of all.” William Shakespeare’s tragedy Othello shows the themes of reality through the characters, and their action, Imagine Dragon’s song “Demons” illustrates themes through lyrics and the music video. Both works illustrate the three themes because people always have a hidden side. They are always jealous of what others have. Also, they lose to their dark side.
Romeo went to get a glimpse of love, not with the intentions to start trouble. In the first act, Benvolio was trying to make peace between the servants, and then Tybalt joined in and made it a brawl because he automatically assumed the worst. Both Capulet and Montague are ultimately responsible in the death of Mercutio because they, themselves, held the power to instill peace within the ranks and with their families. How many people had to fight and die because two men refused to put the good of the realm first? While they were able to make peace after the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, it took the tragic loss of important lives for them to finally burry the
Although ultimately leading to their death, the prevailing love between Romeo and Juliet is the catalyst that mends their family’s feud. The powerful ending in this play that Shakespeare creates aligns with Aristotle’s definition of tragedy by “effecting the proper purgation of these emotions [catharsis]" such as pity and fear. The first time we experience fear is when Juliet and Romeo realize they are enemies and we fear the repercussions of this relationship. This is specifically a formidable problem because their families are ancient enemies. At the Capulet party, when Romeo is found out to be a Montague, Tybalt yells, “Now, by the stock and honor of my kin,/To strike him dead I hold it not a sin” (Tybalt 1.5.66-67).
In Act 3, Scene 3 of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare depicts the theme of both fear and shock that Romeo feels when exiled. Immediately into the scene, Shakespeare uses personification when Romeo asks, “What sorrow craves acquaintance at my hand / That I yet know not?” (Shakespeare III.iii.5-6). Romeo discusses how sorrow is craving acquaintance at his hand, meaning that he will soon be sad, or suffering. This hidden meaning is presented, however, it is presented as personification because sorrow, an emotion, cannot actually crave anything. Shakespeare sets the tone of fear using this literary device to show how there are harsh consequences for killing Tybalt.
Farewell” (x). By verbally harassing Ophelia and estranging himself from her, Hamlet provides the apparent image of losing his prior care without a great amount of consideration. Additionally, Hamlet further displays his anger for his father’s death through this display. By dissolving his relationship with Ophelia, Hamlet furthers his image of insanity to further illustrate himself as incapable within Claudius’s eyes while still communicating distaste for his loss of his father. With Hamlet’s intentionally swift change of heart for Ophelia, Hamlet’s procedure warrants a certain level of sanity.
Before heading to the hotel, Tom was mad at the blatant disrespect Daisy had given him by basically saying I love you to Gatsby in front of him in the scene where “His hand, trembling with his effort at self-control, bore to his lips the last of his glass of ale” (Fitzgerald 119). Fitzgerald emphasises “self-control” in this sentence because Tom is enraged at this act, physically shaking to prove it. Later speaking to Nick and Jordan he said “‘You think I’m pretty dumb don’t you?’ he suggested. ‘Perhaps I am, but I have a - almost a second sight, sometimes, that tells me what to do. Maybe you don’t believe that, but science-’” (Fitzgerald 121).
For instance, when Tom gets furious at Myrtle, his mistress, for speaking Daisy’s name(Tom’s wife), Tom, “making a short deft movement, [...] breaks [Myrtle 's] nose with his open hand(37).” This scene, without doubt, portrays Tom’s lack of respect for women and it shows that Tom views Myrtle as nothing more than an object that is meant to please his sexual desires. Tom sees himself as a superior to Myrtle and feels that he has the right to punish and put her back into her submissive role when she steps out of line. Similarly, Wilson is also prompted to violence by
Then because Romeo said that he loves Tybalt, so he took that as an insult and replied “Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries that thou hast done me. Therefore turn and draw” (SS pg 427). Yet he only pushed Romeo to fight him but Friar Lawrence did multiple things that added up to their deaths. In conclusion the Friar was the main cause for the fall of Romeo and Juliet’s fall. This is because of he was the one who marry them, he gave the potion to Juliet, and the letter Romeo was suppose to get.
Macbeth hallucinates and wonders aloud “Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible to feeling as to sight, or art thou but a dagger of the mind, a false creation, proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?”(Macbeth II.ii.36-39). As Macbeth prepares mentally to kill his beloved king, he imagines a bloody dagger much like the one he plans to use on Duncan. He blames this hallucination on stress and tries to push it aside. This is important because it shows that Macbeth's mind has begun to falter but is not entirely gone. This is only the beginning of a long road of bad judgment for Macbeth.
Now arriving cheerful and happy he is now secretly married to Juliet is still unaware he has been challenged to a duel. Blinded by love, Romeo tells Tybalt that he loves "thee better than thou canst devise” meaning “I love you more than you can understand until you know the reason why I love you…” Mercutio who is now disgusted by Romeo’s actions challenges Tybalt to a duel which Tybalt accepts and they start to sword fight. Romeo tries to stop this along with Benvolio but Romeo’s interference results in Mercutio’s death. Mercutio then curses both families while on the ground. This conflict is still man vs man.
