Instead of being the good teenager who always says yes or no ma’am, he went against Capulet, which didn’t do much good for him because Capulet still won. This is isn’t the only example of Tybalt or the other characters showing their rebellious side against their parents or higher authority. As the story moves along, the more the theme of rebellion shows through. The reader learns from early on in the story that there is a feud between two families, the Montagues and the Capulet’s. The two main characters, Romeo and Juliet, are from different sides of the feud, but suddenly fall in love.
In the film, Mean Girls directed by Mark Waters (2004), adolescents are represented as bullies, who use manipulation to achieve what they want and are two-faced with the people around them; they are constantly stereotyped as a high social group like the plastics and a low social group like the mathletes; also they are presented as young people that fall under peer pressure, and are overly concerned about their appearance and about being socially accepted. In this film by Mark Waters, teenagers are depicted as bullies who constantly manipulate people to get what they want and who are two-faced. Certain social groups, such as the Plastics, use manipulation to achieve their goals. This is evident when, in the phone call scene, Cady influences Gretchen and Katy and she makes them start hating Regina. This suggests that teenagers, in order to get what they want, will manipulate their own friends without caring about the consequences.

The Impact of William Shakespeare on American Culture “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them” (Shakespeare). William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright who is considered one of the greatest writers to ever use the English language (“William Shakespeare his life...” 2015). Known for many of his great works containing poems, plays, and sonnets dating back to 1592. “He was a man of his times, writing for his contemporaries on topics that were the hot-button issues of his day” (Tumiel, 2017). In the times during Shakespeare’s birth there were events taking place such as the age of protestant reformation and the Renaissance, contributing to his works.
However, her age is also the cause of her rebellious attitude. She is at the developmental stage where teenagers question rules, parental and societal, and seek to find their place in the world. To do so, teenagers often disregard rules created by other and do whatever they like. And this is exactly what Daisy Miller does. For example, when Winterbourne tries to discourage Daisy from going out with Giovanelli, she takes a stand against Winterbourne, a man she had just met, deciding what she should and shouldn’t do.
“William Shakespeare’s “Henry VI Part II” was his first play, he ever performed” (Mabillard " 2000). A man who wasn’t well known at his time began to become more distinguished as time went on. Many people long after the death of Shakespeare claimed that he was one of the best British poets and playwrights of all time. The lacking documents and his mysterious past makes him all the more interesting. Even though we don't know much of Shakespeare, his works were filled with symbolism and metaphors about life which made them amazing.
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.
(The Shining, 30) Danny wonders if he would leave things would get better for his parents. The parents don’t appreciate the knowledge their son possesses as it disrupts their intellectual authority over their child. As explained in ‘The Gothic Child’, ‘excess feelings of bitterness’ prevail when a child is deserted by ‘their immoral, neglectful parents’ (Georgieva: 2013, p. xi). This links directly to Danny’s relationship with his father, as the possibility of Jack’s alcoholism and aggressive tendencies resulting in divorce is ‘the greatest terror of Danny’s life’, and in the source of great anxiety for him. This is further suggested as Danny first unlocks his psychic abilities whilst sensing the extreme strain on his parents’ marriage and “desperately… concentrating to understand” (Shining 40), further reiterating the relationship between neglectful familial relationships and the child’s susceptibility to the
