Romeo finds out she is “dead” and comes to see her. This then leads to both their suicides. This is also evident in Douglas Dupler’s essay when he writes “ In the end, rather than mediating his position of religious authority, the friar devises a secretive plan that goes wrong and leads to the death of the young lovers,” (Dupler 3). It is explained in this essay that Friar Lawrence goes against his beliefs and concocts the plan that then fails. In summary, Friar Lawrence is the one responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths.
“To Be on Not To Be” Response to Literature I. Hamlet’s internal conflict that he reveals during his, “To Be or Not To Be” soliloquy are the struggles between whether to either live or die. He explains to us all of the differences between life and death. He says that is it truly worth living when you have to deal with all of the nasty things in life. Or is it better to instead fight against all of these issues that are going on in Hamlet’s life. When he says fighting against it he means that it will be a lot easier to just put an end of his life by committing suicide.
Through Steinbeck’s literary techniques he explains the causes of Lennie’s death through the theme, characterization and foreshadowing. Although Steinbeck was able to leave his readers with many thoughts to think about from the story, one of the themes that clearly show the cause of Lennie’s death is sacrificing. Even though by killing Lennie, George lifts a heavy burden off his chest for he no longer has to take care of Lennie and deal with all the troubles Lennie keep on making for him. However, George has to sacrifice his friendship and love because by shooting Lennie he loses a friend whom had always been keeping him company and shares a dream with him, to have their own farm where they would share and live together. Other than that, it was not easy for George to shoot Lennie but he had to do it because if he didn’t he knew that Curley would and in a more painful way.
As Claudius in deep prayer repents his sins, Hamlet ceases to act upon the revenge that is dwelling inside of him. “To take him in the purging of his soul When he is fit and seasoned for his passage? No. Up, sword, and know thou a more horrid hent.” (Act 3, Scene 3, 85-87). Hamlet’s idealistic perception to have the death of Claudius perfectly plotted leads to his demise, as it allows for Claudius to plot a death for Hamlet.
In the story point of view Victor also betrayed God. Victor’s way of grieving his mother’s death is to get obsessed with death and to bring something dead, or rather, a compilation of many dead something’s, back to life. He caught up so much in his ideas and his plans that he forgot about God and the way things should be created so he decided to challenge himself and bring back to life
Before Lucie weds Darnay, Carton professes his love to her, though he still persists in seeing himself as essentially worthless. This scene marks a vital transition for Carton and lays the foundation for the supreme sacrifice that he makes at the novel's end. Carton's death has provided much material for scholars and critics of Dickens's novel. Some readers consider it the inevitable conclusion to a work obsessed with the themes of redemption and resurrection. According to this interpretation, Carton becomes a Christ-like figure, a selfless martyr whose death enables the happiness of his beloved and ensures his own immortality.
Hamlet’s incapability to avenge his father is shown throughout the soliloquys, and shows the feeling behind the troubled prince. The “to be or not to be” soliloquy improves my understanding of Hamet’s failure as a revenger by seeing his feelings about death. What hamlet expresses throughout this soliloquy, is that he sees death as an escape and compares it to sleeping; which in fact is a very peaceful and restful matter, which he then compares to “the heartache and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to” during life. Hamlet shows throughout the soliloquy that he wants to kill himself, he’d much rather die but clearly cannot. In the soliloquy he says “Thus conscience does make cowards of us all”.
Hamlets anger, which stems from his mother marrying Claudius, bears him serious thoughts of suicide. This results in an attempt at a religious and moral sin which shows a weakness in his character. Hamlet shows some moral sense when he decides not to kill himself due to religious beliefs, which is a paradox that leads to Hamlet’s downfall. His statement “thy commandment all alone shall live within the book and volume of my brain” (I.V.102-103) establishes his tragic decision to let nothing stand in the way of his vowed revenge assuring the death of Claudius, a longer life span and the immunity of punishment towards his mother. As act III begins, the reader sees Claudius’s plot against Hamlet progress.
Lastly, there's the idea of finally finding love after death when Juliet kills herself to be with Romeo in the afterlife after she finds him dead in the family tomb. Catherine dies and heathcliff is burried in a grave next to her... If I have that part of the story right Heathcliff's revenge is through jealousy of Catherine's marrying of Edgar whilst Romeo's behaviour was through hatred and despair after Mercutio's death. Although both are done with not much rationality due to the emotional response from the loss of a loved one Heathcliffs reaction was more of revenge focused on Edgar by trying to claim Thrushcross Grange in a similar way Edgar claimed Catherine. Whereas Romeo's reaction was focused on Juliet and his pain of her loss and want to be with her.Wuthering Heights, by Emily Brontë, is an epic romance novel of the Victorian Era.
