Romeo joins the group fresh from his wedding. He tries to avoid conflict with Tybalt but Mercutio, mistaking his reluctance for cowardice, starts to fence with Tybalt. Romeo steps between them to stop the fight but Mercutio is accidentally and fatally wounded and Tybalt flees. When Tybalt returns, an incensed Romeo fights and kills Tybalt, then flees. The Prince sentences Romeo in his absence to immediate banishment on pain of death.
Romeo shows impatience when he was fighting Tybalt after Mercutio had died in the streets of Verona and he told him “Either thou or I or both must go with him” (III.i.125). This shows Romeos impatience because even after his friend had died, he took no time in mourning for his death but instead went straight back to Tybalt for revenge. Similarly, Mercutio is also always being impatient. One example of his impatience could be when he told Tybalt in the streets of Verona “Here’s my fiddlestick, here’s that shall make you dance” (III.i.45-46). Mercutio is saying that this is my sword and this is that which will cause you to dance around to avoid the edge of his blade.
“O that I were a man for his sake! Or that I had any friend would be a man for my sake!” she passionately exclaims. “I cannot be a man with wishing, therefore I will die a woman with grieving” Benedick Benedick is the willful lord, recently returned from fighting in the wars, who vows that he will never marry. He engages with Beatrice in a competition to outwit, outsmart, and out-insult each other, but to his observant friends, he seems to feel some deeper emotion below the surface. Upon hearing Claudio and Don Pedro discussing Beatrice’s desire for him, Benedick vows to be “horribly in
One reason is that anytime men are able to take up arms against the local government so that they may improve their lives; they are fooling themselves. A prince will have to do harm those who helped him rise to power because he is forcing them to live with any of the problems he will have taking the principality and holding the acquired territory. Because of these things you are opposed by the people who opposed you from the start and the people who helped you overthrow the territory. It will always be difficult to acquire new territories. New difficulties
Look here it is.”(III.iii.) Iago’s manipulative ways have earned him what he needs to succeed in the demise of his counterparts. By being loyal to her husband, Emilia has caused a great deal of harm to the woman she cares so deeply for. Another conversation of Desdemona is brought up between the Ancient and his general and this time Iago explains to Othello that he had seen Cassio with his ladies handkerchief. Othello later questions Desdemona about the handkerchief and she cannot answer where it is.
To begin with, is the targeting diction the author implies towards his mother in the speech. The situation creates frustration with his mother, his father’s wife, who was quick to betray Hamlet Senior by marrying Hamlet’s uncle in such a short time. For example, Hamlet expresses his frustration “she married. O most wicked speed to post” (line 155) toward the queen because she proceeds with her usual activities as if the death of her husband, the king, never happened. The significance in this is the careless attitude his mother has and the selfless mage she creates upon herself.
When Tybalt recognizes Romeo’s voice at the party, he orders his servant to “fetch him his rapier” and views “striking [Romeo] dead” as “not a sin” because of the “stock and honor of his kin”(Shakespeare I. vi. 62,66-67. Tybalt immediately tries to attack Romeo upon recognizing his voice and in order to defend his pride, feels the need to show Romeo (and guests) who is superior by having a duel with him. However, when Tybalt is forced to leave Romeo alone due to Capulet’s orders, he becomes very vengeful as his ego is hurt because he finds it insulting to be unable to fight a Montague in his presence. Tybalt clearly is motivated by self-interest because he mainly thinks about defending his pride, and thus, has the urge to kill Romeo at a party without thinking about the disgracing the Capulet name.
Gertrude’s marriage to Claudius was a key action of betrayal not only to Hamlet, who clearly despises his uncle even before he hears of his treachery, but also to the former King. Hamlet sees the marriage as incest, “Incestuous sheets, as she has married her brother in law. Incest is morally wrong and seen as disgusting as not only is it against these social values, however Hamlet is most disgusted as she promised herself to his father, yet like a whore, sleeps with her husband’s brother. Hamlet is also disgusted by how quickly Gertrude has gotten over the death of his father and can’t understand why she would ever wish to marry Claudius or sleep with him. Hamlet seems obsessed with his
QUOTE | EXPLANATION | THEME | “But for my sport and profit, I hate the Moor:It is thought abroad, that ‘twixt my sheetsHe has done my office: I know not if’t be true;But I, for mere suspicion in that kind, Will do as if for surety.” Act 1, Scene 3 | Iago talking about how he hates the Moor and even though he’s almost sure it’s not true, he pretends to suspect that Othello has slept with his wife, Emilia, giving him more reason to get back at Othello. | Manipulation/betrayal | “Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see:She has deceived her father, and may thee” Act 1, Scene 3 | Brabantio suggests to Othello that because Desdemona has previously deceived her father in marrying the Moor, she will most likely also be unfaithful to her husband. Othello agrees, convincing him more of Cassio and Desdemona’s affair | Manipulation/betrayal | “Look to your wife, observe her well with Cassio.” Act 3, Scene 3 | Iago subtly places the idea of Desdemona and Cassio in Othello’s mind. But then he’d go and pretend he doesn’t know what he’s talking about which makes Othello question it more | Manipulation/betrayal | “I am glad of this; for now I shall have reason to show the love and duty that I bear you.” Act 3, Scene 3 | Iago makes Othello think that because he’s come to him with his suspicions that he is a good and honest friend. | Manipulation/betrayal | “If I can fasten but one cup upon him, With that which he hath drunk to-night already, He'll be as full of quarrel and offence As my young mistress' dog.” | Iago knows Cassio gets drunk easily and manipulates this by purposely getting him drunk so he will do something that will result in him getting in trouble with Othello and lose his role as lieutenant.
As Hamlet tries to convince his mother that Claudius is a bad guy she doesn’t believe him and Hamlet ends up accidentally killing a messenger (Polonius) Although Hamlet is pretending to be mad, people are starting to think he has really lost his mind even more so because of Polonius’s death. The King Claudius attempts to send Hamlet away but fails and Hamlet returns. The son of Polonius, Laertes, had come back from school to avenge his own father’s death. Claudius blames the death on Hamlet and devised a plan with Laertes to finally kill Hamlet for good. Hamlet and Laertes duel in a sword fighting match with Claudius’s intentions on Hamlet dying.
