87-93). The dramatic irony in the scene is that Lady Capulet is mourning over Tybalt but Juliet is mourning over Romeo. Juliet and the audience know this but Lady Capulet does not. Juliet starts to mess around with her mother by changing her words around to make it sound like she also wants Romeo dead, but actually wants to see him. Lady Capulet does, not notice what Juliet is doing, but the audiences does, thus creating dramatic irony in this scene.
Medusa is described in a very negative manner. On the other hand, the final stanza makes us feel pity for her. Her lover had other ‘girls’ meaning he was unfaithful and the rhetorical question that follows makes Medusa seem desperate. This part of the poem evokes feelings from the reader as she is clearly distressed and suffering. She reminisces about when she was ‘fragrant and young’, illustrating her complete lack of confidence.
Pearl symbolizes evil in the story by representing God's punishment of Hester's sin, symbolizing the guilt and the scarlet letter that controls her behavior and defying Puritan laws by being cheerful and associating with nature. Pearl is a greater punishment then Hester’s “A”. First, Pearl represents God's punishment by her mocking and nagging of Hester. This is shown throughout the novel she sometimes seemed to her mother as almost a witch baby (Hawthorne 88).Second, Pearl is a baffling mixture of strong emotions with a fierce temper and a capacity for evil; with Pearl, Hester's life became one of constant nagging, and no joy. This is proven when Hester remarks to herself, "Oh Father in heaven - if thou art still my father - what is this being which I have brought into the world" (Hawthorne 89).Thirdly, Pearl represents the sins of both Hester and Dimmesdale.
The final line, which is a stanza on its own, is an exception; this underlines it and creates a sense of evil as she suggests that she wasn’t to kill him as from the Greek mythology when you look at her she will instantly turn you into stone. The first paragraph of the poem sums up the whole poem. The words ‘a suspicion, a doubt, a jealousy’ show the whole process she is going through and the emotions that she is feeling. It also goes onto talk about the curse that she has. The danger shown by upsetting Medusa is emphasised by the metaphor of "bullet tears", since tears are commonly seen as weak and fragile, but bullets are shown as cold violent and deathly.

With the support and persuasion of Lady Macbeth, he kills King Duncan and gains his kingship. When Banquo makes his vow to find out who killed Duncan, Macbeth knew he had to silence him. After Macbeth is named king, he seeks out hired murderers to kill Banquo and his son, Fleance. Macbeth does this because he is afraid that Banquo will get in the way of his new title and Fleance, because he is prophesied to be king.
Romeo doesn’t want any trouble with Tybalt. He tells Mercutio to go, and to stop teasing Tybalt, as he knows that Tybalt, being an expert swordsman, will fight Mercutio to the death, with Tybalt defeating Mercutio: “Draw Benvolio…Hold Tybalt. Good Mercutio.” Sct 3 Scene 1 Line 87-91. This shows Romeo is protective over his friends. With Mercutio now dead, as a result of Tybalt’s thrust under Romeo’s arm, Romeo is very annoyed and wants to take
Thus, the action in a comedy consists of a string of incidents that reveal the fool in situation after situation where he shows variations from what is considered normal behavior. Much of the fun of comedy consists of the reaction of the other characters to the behavior of the principal character. Often comedy ends in the marriage of the principal characters, the writer’s cue to us that order will be created and sustained now that the characters have wed. Wordplay: Oxymorons: The word oxymoron comes from the Greek meaning "pointedly foolish." Examples: Quince refers to the play of Pyramus and Thisbe as "the most lamentable comedy." (I.ii.
Situational irony is when you expect one thing to happen but another thing does. Dramatic irony is established when the audience knows something that the characters in the play do not.
