(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s personality drastically changes. At first Romeo was love-sick and Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage. Then they meet, fall in love and get married.
August knows that June is afraid to fall in love again because the last man that she fell in love with left her. June and Neil argue a lot about the issue of marriage; once their fight gets so bad that June tells him that if he leaves then he should never come back because she will never marry him.

To begin with, they had forced her to marry Paris whom she did not love or want to marry. It is shown when Lady Capulet says “what say you? Can you love the gentleman? This night you shall behold him at your feast.” (1.3.79-80).The fact that her parents were forcing her to do something she did not want to do made Juliet the very secretive girl she was. Also, the Capulet family was in a fight with the Montague family.
Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet, therefore, they are forbidden to fall in love. Friar Lawrence married them in secrecy. Romeo killed Tybalt, and in result he was banished to Mantua by the Prince. When he was banished, Juliet’s father was making her marry Paris. She ran to Friar Lawrence for help and the friar gave her distilling liquor so that she can fake her death.
His criminal family frustrates Sarty in that he just wants to live a normal life. In a rose for Emily” Emily is heavily affected by her relatives. Going insane runs in her family with her great aunt (her dads sister) also being a little crazy. So she is at a disadvantage from the start. Her father doesn’t help the situation because he shields her from the outside world and “chases away potential suitors because none of them are good enough for his daughter” (p.6”A Rose for Emily”).
In the stories, A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner and The Jilting of Granny Weatherall by Katherine Anne Porter both women had different reactions to the similar situations of being rejected by their lover and losing a loved one. In Faulkner’s story, A Rose for Emily, the main character, Miss Emily, acted out irrationally when her lover, Homer, rejected her. All her life Emily was not able to have a chance with any suitors because her father always pushed them away. When she got older she began to loose her beauty and she felt she would never get married
Lord Capulet’s attitude just suddenly changed because he would rather have a great family reputation instead of his only daughter marrying her love. “Not proud you have, but thankful that you have. Proud can I never be of what I hate, but thankful even for hate that is meant love.” 3. What is the Nurse’s advice to Juliet? Why is this hurtful to her?
Penelope , in Greek mythology, wife of Odysseus and the mother of Telemachus. In Homer's Odyssey she is pictured as a chaste and faithful wife. When Odysseus was away, she was surrounded by suitors who tried to persuade her that he would never return. She agreed to choose another husband when she finished weaving her father-in-law's shroud, but this was never done, for she unraveled by night what she wove by day. At last her strategem was discovered, and the suitors were enraged.
His goal of being with her had come true, but while being out on the town Tom finds out about the affair and things are laid out on the table. An argument starts up between Tom and Gatsby on who Daisy loves with Gatsby saying, “ ‘ Your wife doesn't love you…. She never loved you. She loves me….. She never loved you, do you hear...She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me (137).” As he argues with Tom you can see his defiance to believe that Daisy could love another.
Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet is one of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays. This is probably because at the time that it was written it had themes of forbidden love a theme that was never touched upon before Shakespeare. The story is about two young people who are from feuding families who at one families masquerade ball fall in love at first sight, and even when one parent tells Juliet to marry someone else she refuses and would rather be disowned than marry some one else. To be able to be with Romeo she takes a poison that would make her appear dead. When Romeo hears of her ‘death’ he is so distraught and depressed that he kills himself at the side of her death bed.
