Shakespeare echoes key thematic topics by the production of a series of lies that form intro deception at crucial moments. When Hero and Ursula exit and leave Beatrice alone, Beatrice declares, “…Benedick, love on; I will requite thee, taming my wild heart to thy loving hand” (III. i. 117-118). Beatrice expresses her acceptance of Benedick’s love but does not realize the love inside Beatrice exists artificially.
‘Men were deceivers ever.’ To what extent can it be argued that Shakespeare’s presentation of men’s attitudes to women in ‘Much Ado about Nothing’ allows for comedy? In Much Ado about Nothing, it can be equally argued that men’s attitudes towards women are actually used for comedy purposes, and it can be argued that their attitudes aren’t. For this argument, the relationship between Beatrice and Benedick at the start of the play can be seen as comical to the audience, as they both claim to dislike each other and take pleasure in making rude remarks to one another. On the other hand, the relationship between Hero and Claudio could be seen as quite dark to the audience, as there are accusations and trust issues between the two. The quote ‘men were deceivers ever’ comes from Act 2 Scene 3 of the play, from the song that Balthasar sings.
Why does Ophelia go mad? Does Hamlet have any responsibility for this madness and her death? The following passages from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, explain why Ophelia has gone mad. According to Laertes, "There's nothing more than matter," therefore he believes that even though his sister was mad, she was saying more than just blurting out random thoughts. Intermingled within her thoughts that seem to mean nothing, she expresses her grief as well as dropping subtle hints that Hamlet is the reason why she has gone insane.
Second, the murder of Tybalt by Romeo. Finally, the suicide of Romeo and Juliet. The love that is portrayed in the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is immature and rash. The love in this novel is mostly based on physical appearance. Romeo at first is in love with Rosaline, but this love is broken due to two things: Rosaline swearing herself to the lord and secondly the unexpected acquaintance of Juliet.
The moment their eyes meet we are supposed to believe that they instantaneously fall in love with each other. Because they are from two warring families their love would most likely be forbidden. Juliet's father has also promised her to his good friend Paris. Because the love between the young couple is so powerful they go to Friar Lawrence and they are secretly married. On the day of their marriage Tybalt, Juliet's cousin, challenges Romeo to a duel.
Oberon: Manipulative or not? What does it mean to be manipulative? Well, in William Shakespeare’s play ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, Oberon and Titania have a big disliking for each other even though they are husband and wife. The thing with Oberon is that he really wants the Indian boy so he can become apart of his crew but Titania won’t allow Oberon to have hi. This is where one realizes how well Shakespeare shows characterization towards Oberon being manipulative because he orders Puck to put the love in idleness flower on someone with Athenian clothing, he used the same flower on Titania while she slept to help him get the Indian boy, and his reaction to finding out Titania fell in love with an ass.
The Friar responds with, “Young men’s love then lies/ Not truly in their hearts but, in their eyes jesu maria, what the deal of brine/ Hath washes thy sallow cheeks for Rosaline!”(2.3.68-90). In the first act, Romeo thought himself to be in love with Rosaline. Romeo had been distraught over the fact that his beloved Rosaline was going to become a nun. Romeo would never be able to love Rosoline, or be with her. Friar Lawrence makes fun of Romeo saying that young men only love what they see.

Cherry seems to become more nutty when she falls for Lewis. But that’s what the audience wants to see, the normality of people turning mad because of love. Nowra is trying to cut out the fact that these people are really insane and hid it with the fact that love is what is important in this play, for people to understand that love makes you mad whether you are or not. As Julie says ‘Love is hallucinating without the
This is emphasised with the fact that the two young lovers foreshadow their own death. Therefore this creates dramatic irony in that the audience know how the story is going unfold and the course of Romeo and Juliet’s’ lives but they do not know themselves. Shakespeare unravels the story whilst cleverly creating twists which brings sympathy upon the audience. The play starts with a prologue which is how Shakespeare begins to create a sense of sympathy for Romeo and Juliet. Here, the audience is told that the couple are ‘star cross’d lovers’ and that their love is going against the stars and that they are therefore doomed in disaster.
