Romeo and Juliet’s relationship is not even a relationship because they have to sneak around and lie to everybody they love. At the beginning of the story, Romeo claims to be so in love with Rosaline. He says that he cannot find another girl to love and that Rosaline will be the only girl that he’ll ever be able to love. Romeo’s friend Marcuteo tells Romeo that he needs to look for other beauty’s, and Romeo disagrees because he believes that Rosaline is the only women for him. But she could not love Romeo back because she was a nun, and that is against her religion.
They say, “Love can be dangerous in the wrong hands.” In the poem, “My Last Duchess”, that statement is a fact. All that the woman ever did was smiled at the things that made her happy, but her husband felt as if she gave him the same attention as she would a stranger. He wanted to feel special and since she could not give him that extra attention that was needed, he decided to have her killed. He also took upon himself to tell the father of his new wife, what had happened to his last wife. He basically was informing the father that if his daughter does the same as his last wife then she would be killed as well.
The Mysterious and Complex Life of Abigail Williams Abigail Williams was only about 11 years old when she and her friends went into the woods at the dark of night with an African slave named Tituba. Reverend Samuel Parris, Abigail’s uncle, caught the girls dancing “naked” and that was considered a sin in their religion. Parris, the minister of the village, questioned Abigail about this twisted behavior and that’s where all the trouble began. Abigail and Betty Parris were the first two girls to start accusing people of being witches. The girls did this to keep the attention off of them and avoid punishment.
Elizabeth breaks the news to John that Abigail, the woman (or more teenager) that John had sex with, is telling people all over town that certain members of society are witches. Elizabeth hears from one of the accused that Abigail is to blame which sparks anger in John. Even though John tries to tell Elizabeth of Abigail's good nature, Elizabeth believes that Abigail is to blame solely because she committed adultery with her (Elizabeth's) husband. "My Wife will never die for me!...that goodness will not die for me," (38)! John soon comes to the conclusion that Elizabeth doesn't care about him since Elizabeth doesn't care about Abigail.
He asks Reverend Hale to resolve his curiosity about what his wife Martha might be reading behind his back, but instead rouses the town’s suspicion of Martha being a witch. He says to Hale, “I never said my wife were a witch, Mr. Hale; I only said she were reading books!” (71). Giles feels guilt for being responsible for his wife’s imprisonment and tries to defend her in court. Consequently, Giles refuse to give the name of the man who can substantiate his claim that Putnam is killing his neighbors for their land. If he gives the name, he would have to take on the guilt of selling out his friend.
John also detests vanity and greed. He completely stopped going to church because Parris would “…preach nothin’ but golden candlesticks until he had them.” he said “…it hurt my prayer, sir…” to “…see my money glaring at his elbows.” John Proctor’s motivation in the play was to save his wife from being accused as a witch in court. At the end of Act II, his wife is taken by Danforth because she was accused by Abigail of practicing voodoo, and attempted
Lady Capulet did not know about Juliet’s marriage because she never had a close relationship with her daughter. She also encouraged the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues, creating more tension in Romeo and Juliet’s secret marriage. It is because of these three reasons that Lady Capulet is to blame for the tragedy. Lady Capulet is pushing Juliet to marry Paris even though Juliet insists that she does not want to marry him. Instead of Lady Capulet listening to Juliet’s reason for refusal or talking to her, she tells the troubled teen that she must accept the marriage proposal because it is what she wants from Juliet.

In a way he is playing a game with Othello because he does not have any evidence that his wife is actually cheating on him. In Macbeth the witches plan to ruin Macbeth. Although he takes the action that leads to his downfall, he perhaps would not have done this if the witches had not told him that he would be king in Act 1 Scene 3. The witches also never had any proof that Macbeth was going to be king. They are also playing their own little game but they are punished by the gods.
