Lord Capulet essentially endorsed Juliet’s relationship with Romeo without even knowing it. The quarrel between the families caused them to lose their progenies. The deaths of beloved Romeo and Juliet were due to the, “Capulet[‘s and] Montague[‘s], [...] hate, that Heaven [found] means to kill [their] joys with love!” (V.3.315-317) The dispute between the Capulet’s and the Montague’s made Romeo and Juliet’s love less achievable; their love was quite tenacious that they killed themselves to be together. In an acute argument between Juliet and her father, Lord Capulet demanded that she was to, “go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church or [he would] drag [Juliet] on a hurdle thither” (III.5.173-174). Lord Capulet was in dismay when Juliet repudiated marrying Paris, that she only longed for true love.
My chosen monologue is spoken by Juliet to her nurse and can be found at Act 3, Scene 2 lines 97 – 127. In this scene, on hearing the news that Romeo killed her cousin, Tybalt, Juliet is initially angry, but her love for him resurfaces and Romeo’s banishment overshadows Tybalt’s death. There are a lot of conflicting stresses in the first few lines; opposites with contrasting arguments to show Juliet's opposed states of mind. Juliet feels conflicted because her love for Romeo clashes with her love and sense of duty to her family. She asks why Romeo killed her cousin, calling him a villain, but realises Tybalt’s death is less significant and she grants Romeo the license to kill her cousin when she realises that her cousin would have killed Romeo had he not been killed instead.
Shakespeare effectively creates dramatic irony in this scene which creates a strong sense of humor. After Romeo leaves Juliet, Juliet is found crying by Lady Capulet. Lady Capulet thinks that Juliet is mourning over Tybalts death, but is actually mourning over Romeo’s exile. Lady Capulet starts comforting Juliet by telling her that they will get revenge on Romeo for slaying Tybalt, Juliet replies by saying she will never be satisfied with Romeo until she beholds him-dead,(Shakespeare 3.5 ll. 87-93).
The nurse wasn’t clear of who died this made Juliet very sad and angry. Juliet thought she was talking about Romeo. Then the nurse talks of Tybalt and she ask if both of them are dead. Then the nurse tells her what happened. Juliet curses Romeo but still loves him at the same time.
In Othello, both themes of jealousy and hate were amoungst the main characters and developed new accuasations throughout the play. A change in the way one would feel turns Othello jealous and angry at his own wife. Othello believed that Desdemona was being unfaithful to Othello with Cassio. Othello then turns his back on his own wife and does a rash decision to kill her for what she has done. When Othello is certain that she has commited adultry, he kills her softly.
Romeo misunderstands this and believes Juliet is dead. He then buys a poison for himself and kills himself when Juliet wa playing dead. Juliet wakes up to find Romeo dead and even though Friar Lawrence pleads with her to refrain from killing herself, Juliet stabs herself and dies with Romeo. Friar Lawrence was always in favour of the two lovers and he did his best to bring good to them. However, fate changed his good intentions for the worse ans brought much tragedy to the lives of Romeo and
To this point in the play nothing in Hamlet and Ophelia's relationship has warranted this kind of an angry accusation from Hamlet. Ophelia is saddened and dismayed by her lover's hurtful words and she does not completely understand why Hamlet chooses to be so cruel to her. She does understand, however, that Hamlet is angry and hurt over the death of his father. She believes that Hamlet is so tortured by this that it has brought him to the brink of insanity. For these reasons Ophelia is sympathetic to Hamlet, even as he lashes out at her, "O, help him, you sweet heavens” (1351)!
In Act III, scene 3 of Romeo and Juliet, Friar Laurence informs Romeo that the Prince has decided to punish him with banishment from Verona. Instead of feeling joyful of escaping capital punishment, Romeo mourns over the fact that he could never see Juliet again. While the two discuss the Prince's decision, the Nurse arrives and tells Romeo that Juliet is also heartbroken over Tybalt's death. Guilty of hurting Juliet, Romeo threatens to commit suicide. To stop Romeo, the Friar suggests that he and Juliet should consummate their marriage, and afterwards, they can try to get the Prince's pardon.
Romeo and Juliet frequently notice signs, such as when Romeo believes that Juliet is dead, he cried, ‘then I defy you, stars,’ (Act V, Scene I, Line 24) confirming the idea that Romeo and Juliet’s love, was not a part of their fate. The mechanism of destiny is clear in all areas involving the lovers: the feud between their families, the disasters that ruin Friar Lawrence’s plans and the tragic timing of Romeo’s suicide and Juliet’s awakening. These are not simple coincidences, but a manifestation of destiny, which causes the unavoidable deaths of Romeo and Juliet. “If only...” If only the letter was delivered to Romeo, if only Juliet had woken up sooner, if only fate was on their side. Against all odds, Romeo and Juliet did not give up their love for each other, right to the very end.
This sadness Hamlet feels, makes him question his own life in his famous “to be or not to be” soliloquy. The murder of Claudius is his ultimate revenge, but before doing so Hamlet must deal with the incestuous activity that occurred between his mother and his uncle. Hamlets plot for revenge on Claudius is furthered as he realizes that after the death of his father, King Hamlet, Claudius and his mother quickly got married. Hamlet is so frustrated with his mother and her actions, that he yells, “frailty thy name is woman!” (Shakespeare Act I scene II). His hate for women is furthered as seen in his treatment toward Ophelia later on during the play.
