He is now angry with Tybalt and wants revenge. ‘Fire-eyed fury be my conduct now.’ Romeos change in mood is significant as it leads to the death of Tybalt and Romeo being banished . Shakespeare also uses dramatic irony to make Act 3 Scene 1 such an intense and significant scene. When Romeo refuses to fight Tybalt all the other characters are confused as to why. ‘Good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as my own.’ The audience know the reason why Romeo won’t fight Tybalt, which is because Romeo and Juliet are now married.
Hamlet increasingly gets angrier and angrier with himself as he keeps talking, and his anger turns to Claudius. Hamlet is now angry and self-loathing. He calls himself a “scullion” which means the lowest of the servants. He tells his brain to start working and gets an idea: to watch Claudius’ reaction to the modified version of The Mousetrap to confirm or deny his guilt about the King’s murder, which is the fourth part of Hamlet’s soliloquy. In the soliloquy, Hamlet is at first upset with himself about finding ways to avoid avenging his Father’s murder, like his spirit in ghost form told him to.
The scene begins here. He starts this fight as Curley does not like people bigger than himself. Firstly when Curley hits Lennie he cowers and curls up in the corner and was beaten until he was bleeding all over his face and body, it’s at this point where George tells Lennie to start fighting back because Lennie could be killed. This scene is very dramatic mainly because Lennie is a nice person being beaten up, maybe it is dramatic because fighting is dramatic, everyone has different views of the situation but the writer's intention here is to show how the ranch workers turned to violence, in this case probably because they were bored. There is actually no reason for Curley to just come up to Lennie to start a fight is unlikely but maybe Curley thought of Lennie as a threat to him or his wife.
In the case of this play, the reader could argue that Eddie's tragic flaw is either denial or, to begin with, the incestuous feelings for his niece, Catherine. Most of the time, the damage caused by a tragic hero's downfall usually hurts not just himself but often his community and family around him are strongly affected as well. Once again, Eddie's betrayal does both of these things. Firstly, his community was affected because Marco shouted to all the neighbours in the surrounding scene that Eddie killed his children, or so he claimed. Marco made these claims because he was so furious at Eddie’s betrayal and hence wanted to make Eddie seem as a villainous character.
“I am in blood / Stepp’d in so far, that, should I wade no more, / Returning were as tedious as go o’er.” (3.4.136-138) In this quote, Macbeth is telling himself that because he has stepped into evil so deeply, it will be hard to go back to morallity because he will never be able to rid of this guilt brought onto him. He begins to feel so remorseful, that he starts hallucinating and realizing that he has done such treacherous deeds. Even though he can still see how his actions are terrible, as the play develops, he begins to inch deeper and deeper into his own destruction of innocence. Macbeth had always felt threatened by Macduff because Macduff knew what a traitor he really was. Therefore, he had wanted to plot to end Macduff’s life as to not pose a threat on his reign any longer.
Shakespeare does a magnificent job by using Macbeth to show the terrible consequences that can result from an unchecked ambition and a guilty conscience. Those elements, combined with a lack of strong character, distinguish Macbeth from Shakespeare's other tragic heroes, such as King Lear and Richard III, both of whom are strong enough to overcome their guilty conscience. Before Macbeth murders Duncan, he is plagued with anxiety and almost does not go along with the plan. It takes his wife, Lady Macbeth's persuasion in order to complete the plot. When is about to kill Duncan, Macbeth sees a dagger covered in blood floating in the air, representing the bloody course he is about to take.
However, a tragic hero is a character who experiences conflict and suffers greatly as result of his/her choices. Despaired through the death of his father and his mother’s marriage to his uncle Hamlet then begins to possess feelings of grief, anger and frustration. With these flaws weighing on his conscience it contributes to the making of a tragic hero. This is due to the forced objective of avenging his father’s murder and his mother’s incestuous marriage, Hamlet’s lack of being able to dictate his own choices and his cowardly sense of committing suicide to avoid the suffering. Hamlets anger, which stems from his mother marrying Claudius, bears him serious thoughts of suicide.
Hamlet is also very affectionate to Ophelia in the beginning of their private but romantic relationship. After his father is murdered, he becomes ferocious with Ophelia, taking his aggression out on her, when she is only trying to be there for her love. “I could interpret between you and your love, if I could see the puppets dallying”(3.1.229-230) The reasoning behind Hamlet’s anger is simply that he has built up anger for his mother, Gertrude. He is angry with his mother because she
If Hamlet’s hypothesis proves to be true, then King Claudius should exhibit some sort of reaction. Inevitably, Claudius acquits himself poorly as he departs from the performances in a fit of rage. In his later soliloquy, Claudius admits himself to being the cause of King Hamlet’s death: “O, my offense is rank, it smells to heaven; / It hath the primal eldest curse upon ‘t, / A brother’s murder” (III.iii.40-41). Witnessing the play sparks the latent animosity King Claudius has against Hamlet. With such bitterness towards the prince, King Claudius sets forth his own plan to kill Hamlet.
(5.2.295-297) Gertrude’s lustful pitfall is also resolved when she sacrifices herself for her son by taking the poisoned drink. The play’s purpose is met and the characters no longer endure suffering from unfinished business. Their tension and contempt for each other are released with the vengeance dealt. Shakespeare has continuously stressed this powerful concept of justice in which the wrongdoer receives what is due to him and by the culmination of the play the tensions are dispersed due to this. The other prevalent theme, death, floods the inner recesses of Hamlet’s psyche as he develops a fascination with the subject.
