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.
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.
Thesis: A Midsummer’s Night Dream by William Shakespeare explores the idea of love and how it causes one to make irrational decisions and prone to foolishness. In the play, love is caused by a magic love potion where the four Athenian youths, Hermia, Lysander, Demetrius, and Helena fall out in love with their courtship (Lysander and Demetrius fall out of love with Hermia and in love with Helena) and chase the wrong person around in the woods. Shakespeare may conclude that love is fickle and makes us suffer because of its strong power over us. I. Theseus, the king of Athens and Hippolyta, the Amazon Queen, serve as the ideal form of marriage as well as an example of traditional love. a.
However as the events unfold, they become allies more than lovers in their quest to claim the throne, and Macbeth is manipulated and encouraged to do wrong. His determination is questioned by his wife as she states that “[he] live a coward in [his] own esteem.” (1-7-42) This corrupts Macbeth’s mind even further and their relationship is destroyed completely by the
(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.
They both love each other however they’re relationship is made difficult when they realise they are enemies “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”. They see no reason as to why they must hate each other, but the rest of the family see it differently “What's in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet”. This is made even more difficult when Romeo and Juliet get married, Tybalt feels insulted that Romeo entered the Capulets ball and wants to fight him (he feels dishonoured and filled with hate) however Romeo will not fight him because they are cousins now and part of the same
Although Romeo and Juliet is classified as a tragedy, it more closely resembles Shakespeare's comedies than his other tragedies. The lovers and their battle with authority is reminiscent of As You Like It and The Winter's Tale. "Characteristically, those comedies concern themselves with the inborn, unargued stupidity of older people and the life-affirming gaiety and resourcefulness of young ones. The lovers thread their way through obstacles set up by middle aged vanity and impercipience. Parents are stupid and do not know what it best for their children or themselves .
Jealousy in Othello results in the tragic ending like in the beginning of the play, Iago was jealoused of Cassio because he wanted to get Cassio’s position as a lieutenant, Rogerigo was jealoused of Othello because Desdemona loves Othello and not him and Othello was jealoused of Cassio because he thought that Cassio loves Desdemona more than him. Roderigo was jealoused of Othello because Desdemona loves Othello and not him. He was willing to do anything to win her love. It is the jealousy which moves him to do many evil things in the play. He gave a large amount of money to Iago to get Desdemona but he failed.
Helena says this because she cannot gain her lost love back who has been unfaithful to her in spite of her faithfulness to him, such as when Lysander “loved” her when he was under the influence of magic because of the fairy, Robin Goodfellow’s careless mistake while he was intervening in the love life of the couples. Robin Goodfellow put the love potion into the wrong person’s eyes because he mistook Lysander for Demetrius. We see his mistake when Oberon says “What has
Olivia also had her identity mistaken by her brother's best friend antonio. Viola said that she had no idea who he was and Antonio, still believing her to be Sebastian, rightfully got very angry and upset because he had considered sebastian as a good and loyal friend. This case of mistaken identity caused hurt feelings and confusion to those involved. Unlike the other cases of mistaken identity , this one had no humor purpose this incident is an interesting and more serious part of the play, which involves another mistake over Viola's identity. As a final summary, I think mistaken identity is a very important aspect of Twelfth Night: it provides humour, complications and interesting twists to the play.
