These examples show that the animosity seen in Romeo and Juliet is also relevant in today’s society, because it has resulted in many unnecessary deaths. First, the cruel animosity between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s created obstacles for their children, Romeo and Juliet, which ultimately lead to the couple’s final act of suicide. For example, Romeo and Juliet’s love for one another was so strong and powerful. However, this was a big problem because the animosity between the Montague’s and Capulet’s was so profound, that they could not stand the sight of one another. This hatred had been around for centuries: Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, here civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

Eddie’s tragic downfall is triggered by his inability to understand his ‘improper’ feelings for Catherine, his some what foster daughter, his hubris and his ignorance of the warnings given to him by both Alfieri and his wife, Beatrice. Eddie Carbone’s illicit love for Catherine is ‘ a sin against nature’ , these feeling are what drives him to his Peripeteia, which was calling the Immigration Bureau. Eddie pays for his mistake with his life, his death is an event that must occur to restore order in the community and to perhaps be a warning to the rest of the community as they learn from his mistake. Our understanding of domestic tragedy shows us that tragedy is inevitable; however in A View from the Bridge the tragic death of Eddie Carbone seems evitable.

Both Grendel and Emily were lonely, Grendel was angry at the humans because of the way they were reacting towards him, he was jealous of their lifestyle, their parties and singing. Grendel had it in his mind that the reason he was created was to make people’s life miserable. In “A Rose for Emily” Faulkner portrayed Emily as an insane woman.
