Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy about a feud between two families, the Capulets and the Montagues. The capulets daughter, Juliet, falls in love with Romeo, who is the son of the Montagues. However, there is no possible way they can truly be in love. For example, they barely know each other, they are too young, and they only like each other for their looks. Romeo and Juliet’s relationship is not even a relationship because they have to sneak around and lie to everybody they love.
What better to say then jealousy is both love and hate at the same time. But others could agree that love over powers all, in this case of the play Othello, hate conqueres all and turns jealousy into madness. Othello lets the jealousy take over his life and his wisdom of his true love for Desdemona. His brain and heart became decepting and he believed that his wife had been unfaithful. Othello was not a guillable man but he was a believer in anyone.
This comes as a surprise to the audience as Don John attempted to trick Claudio previously saying that Don Pedro was 'in love' with Hero and intended to woo her and marry her himself. Once proved a liar, it seems difficult to believe that Claudio yet again chooses to believe the word of Don John rather than be wary of his character. Hero is thoroughly shamed by this outcry and faints in humiliation. Expectations of married and un-married women in Shakespeare's era were very high. Women were strictly governed in their behavior, especially women of higher status such as Hero.
Cassio is simply a handsome, virile man and this makes Othello jealous. Lago’s own wife Emilia is ignorant of his actions, she will do anything he said because she loves him but Iago always uses her rather than treat her as a woman he truly loves. Iago explains that his hatred of Othello is for choosing Cassio as his officer not him as he had expected. However, after Iago has aroused Othello’s suspicions about his wife’s behaviour, Othello becomes inarticulate and ferocious. Also, this is the first time that Othello, not Iago or anyone, just himself been a negative attention to either his nationality or his age, he feels like he is the outsider of them all.
The two heroines being contrasted are Emily Grierson and Alice Kingsleigh. Emily Grierson truly wanted to get married and meet men, but while her father was alive, she was not permitted to socialize and meet men. “We remembered all the young men her father had driven away…” (Faulkner 4) Due to her father’s overprotectiveness, she did not know how to flirt with men, so when a fellow by the name of Homer came by, she fell in love with him knowing that he was not the marrying type. Instead of using her charms to win him over, she lost all confidence once her
This miserable situation is making him feel disconnected from the world, and he cannot handle all the strong feelings he has: “O teach me how I should forget to think.” Act 1 Scene 1 Line 225. In this case, Romeo is feeling lustful towards Rosaline, which later on is contrasted with the pure love he feels for Juliet. He shows his stubbornness whilst failing to listen to Benvolio who says that Romeo should see other girls as there are many more beautiful. However Romeo simply replies: “Examine other beauties…thou canst no teach me to forget.” Act 1 Scene 1 Lines 227-236. He is denying the idea completely, thinking that it would just make him realise how beautiful Rosaline really is.

After falling in love with each other and kissing they both find out their love is forbidden due to the fact their families are enemies, so in order to stay together they risked everything and got married by Friar Lawrence.
Firstly, Deception is a major theme within the play. Despite Richard’s physical deformity he was still charismatic and could effectively play with people’s emotions. Richard, after killing Anne’s husband seeks to gain her hand in marriage but was cursed by her saying "Never hung poison on a fouler toad. Out of my sight! Thou dost infect mine eyes.” In spite of her obvious dislike towards him, he successfully wins her over by falsely proclaiming his love for her saying “Your beauty was the cause of that effect; Your beauty: which did haunt me in my sleep.” The diction used in this scene highlights Richard’s deceiving skills.
