This creates indirect characterization when he uses complex juxtaposition to describe Romeo and Juliet's complex love. Through terms of contrast, Shakespeare characterizes Romeo as naive in the beginning of the play. Romeo makes mistakes by killing Tybalt and this destroys Juliet. She becomes heart-broken from this because her true love had just killed her cousin. This reveals Romeos dark side.
In the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare exaggerates the emotional behavior and the impressive sensation of Romeo whose impetuous motivation impacted and decided the path of fate, the death of many characters in the story. The expression of Romeo is a key that toward the whole plot to the dead. Shakespeare emphasizes the young love between Romeo and Juliet is under the profound passion that explored at the first sight, but he let the foreordination of their death be started by the temporarily, naive and critical love. Romeo is not only the main character, but also a crucial factor that strongly affects the death of Tybalt, Paris, Juliet and himself. All the reactions of Romeo to each events are meticulous to map out for the
People know Benvolio as the beloved cousin, and friend of Romeo, but could he really be a “friend,” of Romeo when he caused him and his lover juliet to kill themselves? In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Benvolio often chooses to make bad decisions knowing the consequences, as well as kill 4 people just because he failed to help make the right choices for his friends. Benvolio is accountable for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because he often encourages Romeo to make rash decisions, knowing Romeo could get hurt. First of all, Benvolio was the one who introduced the idea of finding a new girl to love to Romeo, at the Capulet's feast. In act 1 scene 2, line 85, Benvolio is talking to Romeo about going to the Capulet's feast, Benvolio then says ¨at this same ancient feast of the Capulet's Sups fair Rosaline whom thou
Hamlet is distressed following the death of his father and the hurried marriage of his mother to Claudius who takes over the throne. The Uncle attempts to control Hamlet with care as he plans a scheme to stir up trouble. When Hamlet confirms his own fears, he meets the ghost of his father who urges Hamlet to avenge Claudius. The ghost says, "Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder" (Shakespeare, I, V, 31). A strategy to ensure he is not suspected to his plan, Hamlet fakes loyalty and obedience to Claudius.
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).
The Queen Gertrude thought of his action to be rash and bloody. When Hamlet heard this he strikes back at his mother with a rude comment saying that it was almost as rash and bloody as murdering a king and marrying his brother (3. 4. 26-28). Hamlet shows some signs of insanity in these few examples.
Shakespeare uses these mental and psychological events that happened to Ophelia to give the reader an excitement, suspense, and climax to read. Not only did Ophelia have internal events that led to external action, so did Hamlet. Waid 3 Hamlet went through monumental changes in his life that made him think about life in general. He was to the point where he thought it would just be easier to die than to live with all these struggles. Hamlet’s uncle Claudius killed his father, which put a huge burden on his shoulders because he loved his father so much.
He desires so much to be the king of denmark that even after gertrude was killed by the poison he thinks that he can still maintain his kingdom. He tries to cover up her death by saying "She swoons to see [Hamlet and Laertes] bleed" Act 5, Scene 2. This shows the sin greed because it says all he cares about is the throne and not his own wife dying. In the scene just quoted, laertes and claudius have a plan on killing hamlet. This shows that the sin wrath is very evident in hamlet.
Feminism has gained a new definition a new understanding of female roles since the Elizabethan Era. Hamlet, a play written by William Shakespeare, is about a young prince, Hamlet, being visited by his father’s apparition urging him to avenge his death by murdering Prince Hamlet’s uncle, Claudius. All the while, Hamlet is enraged by his mother’s hasty marriage to Claudius and is showering his supposed love, Ophelia, with gifts and words of affection. Queen Gertrude and Ophelia are blindly obedient to male authority due to the influence of the social standards that require women to be submissive to men. Queen Gertrude and Ophelia’s actions and outcomes as characters are affected by male influence, the social norms of this time, and the females’ consequences of following these norms.
Very shortly after the tragic death of King Hamlet, Gertrude, his wife, immediately remarried to Claudius, making the mourning process quite uncomfortable for Hamlet. Hamlet 's act of stabbing Polonius through the curtain, which occurs almost casually in the middle of the tirade against Gertrude 's lust, seems only to increase his passionate desire to make her see her error in preferring Claudius to her first husband. For Hamlet, however, the problem of seeing a genuine difference between his original father and the man Gertrude has called his father assumes enormous significance at precisely this
