He is stating that he is very unfortunate and wishes that he was not banished. In conclusion the actions and regrets of revenge are well planted in “Romeo and Juliet”. Revenge is show when Abrams, Gregory, and Sampson start a street fight, Tybalt kills Mercutio, and Romeo kills Tybalt. By acting with revenge, you will always carry out extreme measures and wind up in certain undesirable
Although Romeos thirst for revenge was satisfied the consequences were dire. “And for that offence immediately we do exile him hence. I have an interest in your hearts' proceeding. My blood for your rude brawls doth lie a-bleeding.” In this quote Prince delivers Romeos sentencing which is assisted by emotive language to allow the audience to relate to how the Prince feels and brings the audience to the realisation that disobeying authority can have negative effects more than just one
Loneliness puts The Monster in a mentally unstable position. He believes that he is a monster for the reason being he was created by one. In comparison, Othello’s betrayal is demonstrated throughout the play, but especially through Iago when he confesses to the audience his plan to manipulate and destroy Othello’s love life with Desdemona. Although Othello trusts Iago with anything, Iago hates the “Moor” and is willing to do anything to destroy him. Iago feels that the best way to do so is by manipulating Othello telling him that his wife is cheating on him with Cassio, who Iago coincidently hates as well.
He also tells the murderers that Banquo is blameworthy for their tragic, unhappy lives. After angering the murderers, Macbeth switches to a more sarcastic tone and manipulates the murderers so they will feel like they need to prove themselves men, worthy of Macbeth’s presence. By asking questions, Macbeth leaves a gap between him and the murderers and waits for them to fill it. He asks “Are you so gospeled/ To pray for this good man and for his issue/ Whose heavy hand hath bowed you to the grave/ And beggared yours forever? (3.1.98-101).
The Motivation of Iago William Shakespeare’s Othello is a story based on betrayal, jealousy, hate and revenge. The villain in the play, Iago, is said to be one of Shakespeare’s most evil characters. On a search for power, nothing is going to stand in his way. His actions throughout the play are a direct result of his trying to attain what he believes is rightfully his. Iago’s mean and insensitive manipulation is geared towards the innocent and ends up causing the destruction of Roderigo, Cassio, Desdemona, Emilia, and Othello.
The main theme throughout Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is conflict which consequently leads to the death of many main characters. Conflict in act 1, scene 1 is set in the streets of Verona and is the result of bravery and honour. “I will bite my thumb at them; which is a disgrace to them if they bear it.” this shows how even just the simplest of gestures can spark the beginning of a possible deadly feud, this shows bravery from the two Capulet servants as they bit their thumb at the Montagues. “Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?” This shows that the Montague's were concerned about their honour because to bite your thumb at someone at this time was seen as a very disrespectful and dishonourable thing to do and honour and respect were very important. They also did not want to disgrace their family by ignoring this simple gesture which in the end does begin a feud in the streets.
The monster acts with extreme selfishness and from that comes unethical behaviour and actions. After not getting what he wanted, he promises to destroy Victor’s life and threatens him, by saying “I go; but remember, I shall be with you on your wedding-night" (137). The monster decides to unrightfully take revenge on Victor. The monster is so self-centred that it is incapable of acting ethical, and that its actions are solely to achieve its horrific goal. The above quote also ties in with one of the themes of the book, which is monstrosity.
Tragedy is said to be further represented in Shakespeare’s use of opposites or antithesis. Suggested in Romeo’s oxymoronic prophetic- “Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love. Why then, O brawling Love! O loving hate” (I i.162-164) Along with omnipresent motifs of light and darkness, youth and age. Overall this scene of opposites is set within context of the lovers that are opposites in family caught in a feud that ultimately leads to tragedy.
This is demonstrated from the opening scene where out of nowhere a fight breaks out, just out of one perceived disrespectful utterance. If both sides hadn’t despised each other so much Romeo and Juliet’s affection would not have been sneered upon and, indeed may never have happened at all. In a classic forbidden fruit statement Juliet whispers “My only love sprung from my only hate!” when she realises who her love is. The conflict carries on even with the death of Mercutio and Tybalt. Instead of mourning their loss, each family incessantly blames the other for its cause.
Guilt made him seem more like the common man and likable because of the sheer fact that he was relatable to his old self. Readers can juxtapose his crippling guilt with their own in this sense, while almost feeling sorrowful for the cold-blooded murderer. “And all our yesterdays have lighted fools / the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle / life’s but a walking shadow” (Shakespeare V.v.22-24). Having realized the loss of his Queen, Macbeth fantasizes his own demise; his conscience wants justice for the sins he has committed, showing his guilt and remorse for what he’s done.
