When Benedick says he does not like the dish, he is being disrespectful not only to Beatrice but to the people of the time. He also states that no woman will be let in to his perfectness until the woman is perfect herself. Benedick loves teasing people but will not accept the fact that people tease him. Shakespeare illustrates benedick in more detail which allows the audience to understand what type of character
He is now angry with Tybalt and wants revenge. ‘Fire-eyed fury be my conduct now.’ Romeos change in mood is significant as it leads to the death of Tybalt and Romeo being banished . Shakespeare also uses dramatic irony to make Act 3 Scene 1 such an intense and significant scene. When Romeo refuses to fight Tybalt all the other characters are confused as to why. ‘Good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as my own.’ The audience know the reason why Romeo won’t fight Tybalt, which is because Romeo and Juliet are now married.
Is Romeo fearful of the future? Explain what he is saying in the following lines: “Then love-devouring death do he dare It is enough I may but call her mine.” (lines 7-8) He doesn’t really care about the future. Just that he can hold hands and be with Juliet right now is enough for him. 3. What warning does Friar Laurence give in lines 9-10?
Near the start of the novel Henry ignores Rinaldis claim on Catherine and starts to see her. While rather annoyed at this, Rinaldi sees that Catherine prefers Henry over him and accepts their relationship “insert quote”. This light hearted way of letting go is only possible as both men at this point of time were typical male chauvinist’s From early on we learn Catherine knows about the war and has experienced tragedy in it. Catherine, who once thought of war as a romantic idea, is suddenly hit by the reality of what war does to people when she loses her fiancée to an explosion. “I thought saber cut… blew him to bits instead” Henry begins his relationship with Catherine and sees it as a game”I did not love Catherine Barkley nor had any idea of loving her.
This miserable situation is making him feel disconnected from the world, and he cannot handle all the strong feelings he has: “O teach me how I should forget to think.” Act 1 Scene 1 Line 225. In this case, Romeo is feeling lustful towards Rosaline, which later on is contrasted with the pure love he feels for Juliet. He shows his stubbornness whilst failing to listen to Benvolio who says that Romeo should see other girls as there are many more beautiful. However Romeo simply replies: “Examine other beauties…thou canst no teach me to forget.” Act 1 Scene 1 Lines 227-236. He is denying the idea completely, thinking that it would just make him realise how beautiful Rosaline really is.
Romeo’s fickle heart in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet In Shakespeare’s most famous love story people often forget that Romeo had another love interest before Juliet. Romeo was at first interested in Rosaline, a woman who never even utters a line in the play. Romeo is denied by Rosaline and falls in love with Juliet only days later. In fair Verona, Romeo is venting his frustrations to Benvolio about Rosaline, when he explains “She will stay siege of loving terms/ nor bide th’ encounter of assailing eyes/ nor ope her lap to saint-seducing gold”(1.1.215-218). Romeo is frustrated Rosaline has not responded to his cliché attempts to woo her.
iii. 83) He believed that Romeo was not truly in love with Rosaline, instead, he was just lovesick or infatuated. Similarly, Paris’s love for Juliet is just brought out of tradition. He assumed Juliet would be a good candidate for a wife and asks Lord Capulet for her hand. Though this was the tradition, it can be interpreted that he wasn’t fervent towards this marriage.
The audience get their first indication of what Beatrice thinks of Benedick from her first line in the play whereupon she asks “I pray you is Signior Mountanto returned from the wars or no?” Here she makes a joke about Benedick’s arrogance as the title ‘Signior Mountanto’ can be translated as ‘Sir Stuck Up’. However behind the joke it is apparent that she cares about him otherwise, she would not have asked. The audience is now becoming aware of Beatrice’s verbal wit and dexterity but also her apparent disdain for Benedick. What might be seen as her attempt to mask her true feelings is often greeted with delight in the theatre. Leonato then explains the situation to the messenger, stimulating the audience to want to know more about the relationship between Beatrice and Benedick.
In act I of Othello - Iago, began his plan to make Othello lose faith in his wife. Roderigo is like Iago’s purse, because Roderigo likes Desdemona and wants to know more about her so he gives him whatever he needs because he fears that Iago has not been telling him enough about Desdemona. Roderigo finally realises that Iago has no loyalty to anyone, and that he is only out to benefit himself. He is the outsider in this situation. Cassio is simply a handsome, virile man and this makes Othello jealous.
Benedick’s “bachelor” attitude that he uses as a form of protection initially dominates his character as maliciously rude, witty and obnoxious, he swears that he “truly” loves “none” as he will die “with anger, with sickness, or with hunger but not with love”. This head-strong act that he shows is, yet again, changed instantly as soon as he is given the idea that he is loved back by Beatrice, he transforms in to a romance ridden fool as he assumed her love “must be requited!”. He doesn’t really question any costs to his reputation as a bachelor because love has altered him up to the point of not caring for other’s opinion…Shakespeare again shows how much love taints personal integrity. On the other hand,
