When Tybalt is killed, Lady Capulet, Lord Capulet, and Paris think she is unhappy because of her cousin’s death, which makes Paris respond to this conflict by scheduling the wedding earlier to make Juliet happy again, and that’s one of the biggest conflicts since she told Friar Lawrence she would rather do the most dangerous things than marry Paris. Paris is a very kind-hearted man who treats Juliet like she’s very delicate, he still loved her even though she denied it when he called her his wife. Although he is arrogant, he loves Juliet and he treats the Capulets with admiration and formality, he highly respects Friar Lawrence and gets annoyed with Romeo at the end because
Even though Darnay flees to France and changes his name to rid himself of his uncle’s cruelty, he still feels “responsible for it, but powerless in it” (Dickens 117). Darnay remains powerless until he receives a letter from Gabelle. Threatened by the revolutionaries, Gabelle asks for aid from Darnay. Despite the fact that “[Darnay] had oppressed no man,” (Dickens 226) Darnay feels that “his justice, honour, and good name” (Dickens 226) became the deciding factor for him to go to Paris. Darnay manages to free Gabelle at the cost of the
He does this because he wants his daughter to marry soon and to a man of wealth and high social status and is not concerned about his daughter’s happiness. Throughout the scene he continues to disparage her. Once Lady Capulet confirms Juliet will not marry Paris, he starts to refer to Juliet as ‘she’; ‘is she not proud? Doth she not count her bless’ this excludes Juliet, by referring to her in third person, and not by her name Lord Capulet is dismissing her worth as a person. Lady Capulet and Lord Capulet are very united in their belief that marrying Paris is the right thing to do for Juliet.
Cordelia takes on this role by unconditionally loving her father and furthermore forgiving Lear for banishing her, which is seen when she says “No cause, no cause.” (4.7). Edgar takes on a similar role by forgiving his father for going against him when he was tricked by Edmund and taking care of Gloucester in his blindness at the end of the play. The other characters, however, give into temptation and sin more frequently. Pride, for example, is a prominent sin that affects many characters, Lear being a prime example. Lear's pride keeps him from listening to the advice of Kent, the king's most loyal follower, after he banishes Cordelia and admitting he may have been wrong.
She deliberately follows through with her marriage to Edgar Linton, despite her open proclamations of love for Heathcliff, with whom she grows up and loves irrevocably, only to unceremoniously abandon because of his insufficient societal rank. She knows that Heathcliff feels devastated, yet does not believe that she has been disloyal to him. She is too blind to see past her own momentary desires. As a result of her betrayal, Edgar and Heathcliff are tossed into a downward spiral of competition, jealousy, and heartbreak. Edgar loves Catherine unconditionally, but knows he has been rendered second-best to a man for whom she holds deeper affections.
For example, Aeolus is easily bribed to wreck havoc against Aeneas’ fleet by Juno’s promising him an exquisite nymph for a wife. Juno has obviously favoured him in the past. He concedes that he owes her for everything she has done for him. However, like a pair of bickering children, the territorial sea god Neptune chastises his sister Juno and calms his sea. Although Venus’ protection of her son in Book one is praiseworthy, she is as manipulative of humans as Juno is.
· He tells Ophelia he loves her and does not love her, thinks she should never have trusted him but wants her to go away to a nunnery for her own protection.

The audience is caused to fear Othello's transformation into the ''green-eyed'' monster, then pity him when he claims his title in blood. The most significant flaw that Othello possesses is jealousy, however, he was not moved to it immediately. “She has deceived her father and may thee.” Iago says to him in Act 1, Scene 3. This was an attempt to convince Othello that Desdemona has or could commit adultery since she has already proved to be capable of going against her father's will with their marriage. However, Othello informs Iago that he is not a jealous man.
Restored to a sensible humour by the truth, the General finally gives his blessing to Henry's marriage to Catherine. Meanwhile, Henry Tilney's wordly brother, Captain Tilney, has flirted with Isabella Thorpe and caused her to break off her engagement to James Morland. But Captain Tilney is too shrewd to be taken in by the scheming Isabella, and she is left without a husband. Elanor Tilney's fortunate marriage to a
In William Shakespeare’s play, King Lear, Lear’s initial division of his empire between his two selfish daughters, and the banishment of his loyal daughter, cause a rupture in the Chain of Being. Even after abdicating his power, Lear still pretentiously commands others in an authoritarian and kingly way. As the plot progresses, the deterioration of his mind parallels the degeneration of his kingdom. However, Lear still finds wisdom in his madness because he is humbled and reduced to his natural state, unmodified by his superficial regality. After he abdicates his power, Lear still acts authoritarian and kingly, despite having no real power.
