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.
Rick and Jake, though existing in two different realities, both are weak in the presence of their mysterious femme fatales. In he beginning of Casablanca, Humphrey Bogart plays Rick Blaine as a selfish, bitter American run-away, but by the end, Rick’s hard shell is peeled away to reveal a man who will sacrifice it all in the name of love and honor. Rick is a very standoffish from the start giving off a self-serving attitude. He makes his political neutrality known by not drinking with any customers revealing he “doesn’t stick his neck out for nobody.” Rick not only is uninterested, but he also wants nothing to do with the political dealings playing out around him. Outside of the cafe the world is uncertain, but Rick has created a sheltered atmosphere that emanates warmth and freedom.
He appeals to Brutus as a soft hearted guy only trying to pay respect for his dead friend and not trying to avenge the conspirators. Brutus falls for it, saying “he speaks by leave and permission….It shall advantage more than do us wrong” (3.1.245-249). Pretending to be on Brutus’s side help him to get what he wanted and fuel the audience. During Antony’s speech he used verbal irony to reach the crowd and cover up all the attacks he made against the conspirators. One thing that Antony said sarcastically that got the crow angry was “Let me not stir you up to sudden munity.
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.
Long: In Franco Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet, the scene that I found especially interesting is that of the final duels, i.e. Mercutio vs. Tybalt and Tybalt vs. Romeo. The contrast between the two is great, and the director's interpretation of the scene is quite different from any other version. When Mercutio fights Tybalt, the scene is playful, almost like a game. The two banter back and forth, everyone else is laughing, and they keep enough distance between themselves that they'd be hard-pressed to do any real harm.
Down with the Montagues!”(Page 11). Both groups are constantly hostile to each other, and continue fighting simply because it is all they have ever known. But conflict occurs when the rules are broken between this ongoing feud when two star-crossed lovers finally meet. Romeo shares a bond with his best friend Benvolio, a nephew to Montague and a cousin and friend to Romeo. Benvolio attempts to stop the fight between the servants at the beginning of the play.
Playing off of this ethos is the first persuasive appeal Brutus uses. When first addressing the commoners of Rome, they are unaware of the reasoning behind killing Caesar. Keeping this in mind, Brutus knew he had to seem like a credible source so that the people would believe him and any sort of outbreak would be avoided. By simply intimidating the audience by telling them to quiet down and listen to his reasoned words, they are more susceptible to Brutus’ persuasive efforts. The audience is initially memorized by the Brutus they love, and are grateful for the ‘honorable acts’ he committed.
In both the play and the film he is presented as a highly educated character as he shows awareness of the world, especially in his Queen Mab speech where he shows imagination.He frequently speaks in poetry which shows a higher level of intellect and demonstrates furthermore how he is a relative of the Prince. He makes references to methodology throughout 'You are a lover, borrow cupid's wings' which reinforces this statement. Mercutio is famous for his staunch opposition towards love by creating a negative image of it. 'Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down' this is when Mercutio has not long been introduced and immediately familiarises the audience with Mercutios use of Sexual language will making the audience interested in the type of character he is. He doesn't try to empathise with Romeo about his love for Rosaline, 'If love be rough with you, you be rough with love.'
It is communicated well that Don Pedro is a generous and temperate kind of nobleman. Don John is supposed to be in constant conflict with him. We are meant to watch him plot deviant plans for revenge and constantly offer a foul disposition among the happy couples. While the film does show Don John as an antagonist, he is not truly portrayed as the snake-like villain Shakespeare means him to be. While the lack of convincing manipulation and plotting does not necessarily take away from the story line of the film, it does create less of an emphasis on the relationship between the two brothers.
