Analysis: Juliet loves Romeo. She is sad that Romeo has to be a Montague, the rival of her family, the Capulets. Juliet is very daring and caring. Juliet mirrors some girls in today’s society because some girls might disobey their father’s or parents’ wishes to get what they want. A theme in the story is “Overcoming Society, Family and Judgment” because everybody in Verona knows about the feud and Juliet still loves Romeo.
She states: “...her intent, her passion, her imagery, the rhythms of her speech and the nature of her thoughts” (4). Tan realizes that just because her mother’s english isn’t perfect, it does not mean that she is not capable. This revelation from Tan exemplifies a loving tone that gives the reader overwhelming emotions. Tan shifts to talking about the hurdles she and her mother had to overcome because of their English. She had no confidence in her mother growing up, and saw her as a “limit” and an “embarrassment”.
Secondly, when Juliet tells Capulet that she does not want to marry Paris, Capulet declares to Juliet: “’But, and you will not wed, I’ll pardon you. Graze where you will, you shall not house with me’” (3.5.215-216). Juliet’s father tells her that if she will not marry Paris, she will no longer be allowed to live in his house. By threatening Juliet, Capulet hopes to make Juliet marry Paris. Pressuring Juliet to make a choice that she does not want to make caused the tragedy at the end of the play.
Reckless Decisions In William Shakespeare’s play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the Capulet and the Montague families create a boundary between the love of Romeo and Juliet. Throughout the play, the audience believes that the couple are “star-crossed lovers,” or that fate destined them to be together. However, is this true? Rather than fate having ultimate control, one is able to make accurate decisions for themselves to control the events that will happen. It might have all been a coincidence.
Sara would use her fantasy stories to fill the void whenever she missed her father or felt hopeless. An adult watching (ALP) the story remains unique and believable. The actions of the characters and the importance of their role in the film seem more intense. The breakout scene of the picture was when Sara told Miss Minchin her beliefs despite the consequences. The vocal opinions of the child shocked the headmistress which engages the audience to the edge of the seat.
Not lazy like American people.”’(Tan, 91) Lindo Jong showed extreme pride in her home country while shining a stereotypically negative light on Americans. Little did she know that her deceptive daughter was interested in learning more about “torture” than “Chinese.” Lindo’s nationalistic behavior showed her slight disapproval of Americans and caused Waverly to question her engagement to Rich. Lindo’s tendency to over-encourage her daughter to work harder resulted to Waverly’s constant longing for her mother’s approval on her life’s major events. Despite the culture difference, the pairs were also in fact mother and daughter. The mothers’ more traditional ways disputed with the daughters’ modernistic ideas.
Nora loved her children, it was clearly shown when she played hide and seek with them merrily, and that is why she left them. She did not want to poison them as she said in the play, because she is a liar and hypocrite. She did not want the children to be mistakenly led by her. Moreover she wanted the children to be as free as she was when she left the house, and she knew that the nanny, Anne-Marie, would take care of them. Nora is the most admirable character in the whole play.
Every time the child does something wrong, the mother feels the heartache. It doesn’t matter what the child has done because even if it was just a small matter, the mother would have felt the pain first because she cares and love for her daughter. She loves her daughter with all her heart and wants her daughter to have the best in everything, the kind heart of a mother is fragile. ‘hostage to fortune’, hostage is someone who’s kidnapped and fortune signifies money. This meant that that the idea of having a child is not at all the time pleasant.
Leuce laughed a little, catching herself in time not to encourage the girl's impertinent impersonation of Demeter. If only her mother had also encouraged her to be careful, taught her how to restrain her self, and to always listen to her guardian; then Leuce would have had an easier time looking after the child, and keeping her safe. Persephone wasn't especially hard to look after though, which was the whole reason why Leuce had grown to relish her. She was quite obedient and well mannered enough for a child, but she's a Goddess and Gods don't have it in them to take orders from nymphs; its innate in them, in Demeter, in Hades, even Persephone
This quotation shows how blinded by hate Tybalt is, and yet at the same time it is love which blinds him and causes him to do impulsive acts, such as killing Mercutio. It is both families’ love of honour which perpetuates the violence between the two households. Shakespeare teaches society through the key theme of family love, to not let your love for your family consume you so much that is causes deep hatred and in this case, death. Tybalt could be considered obsessed with his hatred towards the Montagues and obsession is another key theme which Shakespeare explores to teach readers about love. In Romeo and Juliet, an excess of passion is frowned upon.
