In disowning Cordelia this breaks the natural order of things because in doing so he has severed the natural bond that a father and daughter share, as well he has personally destructed himself with this decision because he has given up on his favoured daughter. Goneril and Regan's conspiracy to usurp their father's power, authority and dignity also severs the natural order, instead of offering their father compassion and respect both Goneril and Regan throw him out of
Do you believe in eye for an eye, better known as revenge? How about second chances, mercy or forgiveness for anyone, regardless of any wrongs they have committed? In the play and story of “Romeo and Juliet” revenge and hatred are present in many places, the most memorable and prominent being the deaths of Mercutio and Tybalt. A quote that comes to mine from the world renowned and cherished philosopher Confucius, “When going on a journey for revenge, you must dig two graves, one for your victim, and one for yourself.” Louis L’Amour, “A wise man fights to win, but he is twice a fool who has no plan for possible defeat”. This relates to Tybalt starting the fight because he fights and kills Mercutio but has no plan for defeat when fighting with Benvolio; meaning he didn’t think of the thrashing of himself after the possible fight.
When Bertrande went on to sue Arnaud, he discouraged Bertrande to bringing the lawsuit against the rogue imposter as he was convinced that the man Bertrande was accusing was the real Martin. His evidence was that the stranger is Martin and refers to Bertrande’s illness as her “madness” . Bertrande also questioned Martins younger sister about how the new Martin did not resemble his father “in action or in feature” and told the sister that she did not believe this man to be the actual Martin. The sister replied incredulously, “how could you even think so?’. She informed Bertrande to never speak of it again “or to anyone”.
After Romeo soon learns about his banishment, he is told by Friar Laurence to go visit Juliet one last time; he responds by saying “It were a grief so brief to part with thee. Farewell.” (3.3.192-193). Thoughtless and stubborn, even though his “undying love” for Juliet affects him, Romeo does not realize that going to Juliet’s house can lead to dire consequences. To avoid these consequences, he could have left Verona immediately. During a tremendous argument between Juliet and her mother, Lady Capulet claims that Juliet must marry Paris, an innocent, charming man who wants to marry her, but she refuses and shouts, “ He shall not make me there a joyful bride…I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear it shall be Romeo” (3.5.132-137).
“Friar Lawrence, less ambitious and more desperate than his fellow manipulators, does not hope that Juliet’s death will dissolve the families’ hatreds but only that it will give Romeo and chance to come and carry her off” (Snyder). At this point Romeo and Juliet’s relationship could not solve the problems between the families and the Friar was only uniting them. This is what made the Friar so repulsive. Even now after deaths and family issues, He treated the situation like a game. “Hold, daughter, I do spy a kind of hope, / Which craves as desperate an execution / As that is desperate which we would prevent (4.1.69-71).
This instills fear in Creon because he fears that the sins from the father (Oedipus) will carry over to the children and in turn hurt his newly received kingdom and family. Antigone is set to marry Creon’s son, but Creon does not want this to happen because he fears that Antigone’s “family curse” will enter his own family. By staying true to his threats to kill anyone who removes the body of Antigone’s brother, he can use this as a trap to kill Antigone before she becomes a part of his
She is completely unable to control her feelings for her only love, “I must love a loathed enemy” [I, v, 139]. The way that Shakespeare uses “must” is very interesting because although the households are enemies she must go against her parents will because she loves Romeo. No longer did her parents support her instead she was rejected. When Juliet rebels against marring Paris, “He shall not make me a joyful bride” [III,v,117]. Lord Capulet becomes enraged of this defiant behaviour, “An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend / an you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, / For, by my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee” [III, v, 192-4].
This is further illustrated when Juliet is forced to marry Count Paris when Friar Lawrence presents her with an alternative, “I’ll give thee remedy”. Through The friar suggesting a substitute to Juliet’s fate, he doesn’t let her take responsibility for not telling her parents about her vows to Romeo hence he shows weak judgement and a deficit of thought. Friar Lawrence can be further held accountable for the suicide of Juliet, when at her discovery of Romeos suicide, he abandons her, “I dare no longer stay”. Through this action Friar Lawrence exhibits
Her father doesn’t help the situation because he shields her from the outside world and “chases away potential suitors because none of them are good enough for his daughter” (p.6”A Rose for Emily”). Her father is very controlling of her and this contributes to her being a little off down the road. When she does find a man that she does like in Homer Barron she goes crazy over him despite him being gay. This causes him to kill him when is he is to say that he is not a marrying man. Sarty is
He realize that his name is not worth a life. In the end of the story John rips of the confession paper so that he would ruin his children’s name. He would rather die than ruin his children’s life. Elizabeth finally realize that she shouldn’t have judge her husband. Reverend Hale realized that the girls were lying and accuse people for vengeance.
