Because of the son’s death, Creon’s wife, too, killed herself out of grief. For once, Creon felt terrible about a situation he thought that he had created, but in turn, it was actually Antigone who had made his family fall. Her personal actions led Creon to killing her and therefore killing his family. Antigone’s actions brought suffering to everyone around her, including herself. She was to be buried alive, but in turn, hung herself.
Her death caused much commotion to all the people who new her; the closer they were to her, the more they suffered. This is why the murder of Cassetti is looked at as justifiable. In Christie’s book many passengers denounced Cassetti, ”If ever a man deserved what he got, Ratchett or Cassetti is the man. I'm rejoiced at his end. Such a man wasn't fit to live!” and "I did so rejoice that that evil man was dead – that he could not any more kill or torture little children.
All this because of one decision she made to berry her brother caused her life to fall apart and everyone she loved to disappear. This was in some ways similar to the consequences that Creon had to face with the decision. He was left alone with no one because he killed his family; he killed his own son because its what he thought was right for the town. He didn’t know that his decision was going to force him to live alone. All of this was because they were too stubborn and selfish to change their mind or listen to other peoples view.
These examples show that the animosity seen in Romeo and Juliet is also relevant in today’s society, because it has resulted in many unnecessary deaths. First, the cruel animosity between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s created obstacles for their children, Romeo and Juliet, which ultimately lead to the couple’s final act of suicide. For example, Romeo and Juliet’s love for one another was so strong and powerful. However, this was a big problem because the animosity between the Montague’s and Capulet’s was so profound, that they could not stand the sight of one another. This hatred had been around for centuries: Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, here civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” explores true love in amongst feuding families whilst exploiting the notion that deception leads to catastrophic misfortune. The young poetically portrayed Romeo’s inability to control unchecked emotions, directs him to being disloyal amongst family and his “star crossed [lover]” Juliet. Furthermore, Juliet’s love for “(her) Romeo” causes her to turn a blind eye to his disloyalty and hastily act on his “banished”, through these actions she uses trickery to deceive her family and because of her love affected decisions. Friar Lawrence along with the nurse, cause confusion for the hasty lovers which renders to heightening the family’s feud. Shakespeare presents the concept that deceptive decisions lead to tragic events.
This happiness is sharply contrasted to the sadness and anger that takes over, when Balthasar tells Romeo of Juliet’s death. The true tragedy is that the reader knows Friar Lawrence sent a message to Romeo telling him of Juliet’s fake death and that Romeo had not yet received the news. Balthasar’s news results in Romeo immediately buying poison and rushing to Verona with the intent of dying beside Juliet. “A dram of poison; such soon-speeding gear/As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead” (5.1, 63-65). It is through all of these errors and mistakes that the plot of Act 5, Scene 1 helps to make Romeo and Juliet a true tragedy.
This relates to many teens worldwide that are misunderstood by their parents about their feelings. Furthermore, the two families Capulet and Montague demonstrate universal relevance and generation gaps through tradition. This idea of tradition is present within the social systems and families of Montague and Capulet, it is introduced in the prologue when it says: “ from ancient grudge…” (Prologue) which is stating the tradition of the feud between the families. Since Romeo and Juliet did not even know each other but grew up having to hate each other because of the traditions of their families hating each other. This portrays the generation gap and tradition
The Capulets And Montagues: The Ones To Truly Blame Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy where the four teenagers die because of a feud going on between two noble families. Their death is a mix everyone’s fault, but it is mainly the Capulets and Montagues fault. Although the two families thought they were doing good for their children, they were hateful towards each other, too stubborn to try to resolve the feud, and Lord and Lady Capulet were very hard on Juliet when she refused to marry Paris. The Capulets and Montagues thought the feud wouldn’t do any harm, but the hate towards each other caused the four teenagers to die. For instance, Shakespeare says: Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay or scene, From
When people act on impulse it leads to terrible endings and suffering to others. In the beginning of the play Romeo shows his tragic flaw when he goes to the Capulet party and falls in love with Juliet, completely forgetting about his first love Rosaline. When Romeo sees Juliet at the party he says, “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! / For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (I.v.50-51) This shows his impulsiveness by not mentioning Rosaline at all and starting to fall in love with a girl he does not even know.
My last example for you would be this young parent that killed his baby because it cried too much. Now how easy would it had been to take your child to someone else until you come down. Abuse comes when people don’t think and just react. Or it’s just simply that they don’t care that’s why it’s important to have Child Welfare laws to look out for those that can’t look after themselves.
