Dear Prince, I beg of thee to drop or even minimize the charges towards Romeo Montague. Please do this task I ask you because even though Romeo killed Tybalt, it was out of revenge considering Tybalt was the one that killed. Tybalt also wanted to fight with Romeo, so Tybalt started this whole thing. The two families always hated each other, so it’s not like Romeo did it for no reason. I believe Romeo killed Tybalt because Tybalt was the killer of his best friend Mercutio.
Macbeth! Macbeth! Beware Macduff. Beware the Thane of Fife.” In quite literally the next scene, Macbeth sends hired murderers to slaughter Macduff. Although unsuccessful (only Lady Macduff and her son were killed), it proved that Macbeth was willing to go as far as it took to keep himself on the throne.
Upon hearing of his families’ death, Macduff returns to Scotland to confront Macbeth, who is slain. The horrid acts performed by Macbeth were brought to justice through his death, and power was restored with the crowning of King Malcolm. Lady Macbeth was the driving force that kept pushing Macbeth to his terrible crimes. One crucial statement she made to her husband directly insulted Macbeth’s manhood, and manipulated him into committing heinous crimes, “What beast was't then, When you durst do it then you were a man; And to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man..."(Shakespeare, 1.7, 47-49). In this statement Lady Macbeth resorted to
Full of grief Maximus is captured by slave traders and is sold to become a gladiator. He quickly becomes a favorite of the crowd; so much so that Commodus feels he has to challenge Maximus to a duel when Maximus refuses to kill another gladiator defying the order of death given by Commodus. Commodus knows that Maximus is a greater warrior then he is and has Maximus stabbed prior to the dual puncturing his lung. Maximus kills Commodus and wins the duel but lies dying on the field of the Roman Coliseum. He orders the release of the rest of the gladiators and the
His aggression leads to his own “untimely death”. In Act 3 Scene 1, “Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries/ That thou hast done me. Therefore, turn and draw.” Tybalt would not accept Romeo’s peace and decides to challenge him to a duel, only to mortally wound Mercutio. His actions spur Romeo into impetuous thinking which saw him kill Tybalt in an act of revenge. Tybalt, indeed, had a serious impact on the lives of Romeo and Juliet, by killing Mercutio.
In addition, in 3.1 Romeo murdered Tybalt to avenge the death of Mercutio by saying “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” (3.1. line 129). This implies that Romeo held a grudge against Tybalt for killing his own friend. This grudge motivated Romeo to kill Tybalt which then motivated Paris to fight Romeo in 5.3. This cycle of hatred between the two families is also what caused the fight scene in 1.1 where the Capulets and Montagues saw each other, then spat rude comments at each other
127). The creature’s goal is to make sure Victor suffers for creating life and abandoning it. Although the creature just wants revenge, he takes the wrong approach by committing murder. He murders the poor innocent boy William who is describes as perfect by Shelley. Shelley does this to emphasize the death of William and to make the novel even more tragic.
We see in the murder of the woman in the street that the sniper doesn’t seem to mind her shrieks of terror followed by the grim silence of death. It is not until his realization that he killed his brother that his character’s shift is revealed. We learn by his reaction of killing his “enemy” that he may not have been as aloof to death and comfortable with war as previously thought. He was described to have lost the passion of war, perhaps even questioning it’s motives. It’s clear that the author
From the short story "Spanish Roulette" by Ed Vega the poet Sixto vows revenge against a local gang member who raped his sister and battles with himself to make the right choice. Although revenge may be the momentary satisfaction in times of despair, no man extracts revenge for the sake of evil, without the intent of profiting from it, and will be punished for it, regardless of reason, in this life or the next. The theme of these stories is the ability to let go of ones hate, to allow themselves the chance to heal without making the dreaded mistake of taking revenge which will ultimately destroy themselves. The message is clear through all three texts that revenge achieves nothing but gambles everything worth losing for the momentary satisfaction of vengeance. Although the three texts go about different ways, reasons, and potential gain by exacting revenge it is very clear through each story that it is never the best answer.
Macbeth was a noble Thane and a loyal hero before, but his desire is aroused by the vicious witches. He even has inner conflict and hesitates for committing the treason, but he cannot resist the desire and the urge of his wife, ‘I’m settled, and bend up Each corporal agent to this terrible feat.’ Macbeth finally murders the king just like what his wife asks him to do. ‘I go and it is done.’ He says, ‘The bell invites me. Hear it not, for it is a knell That summons thee to heaven, or to hell.’ The conflict between Macbeth’s desire and King Duncan encourages Macbeth to murder the king and brings the chaos to his country because the villainy he makes breaks the chain of nature levels.
