It becomes clear that Hamlet did truly love Ophelia, yet hid it because he was a coward. The “ White Lie” is not only depicted through Hamlet denying his love but also putting a front up for the selfish betterment of his life style. After his outrageous lecture on self worth that Hamlet gives Ophelia, she grows incredibly mad, which ultimately leads to her death. Although the intentions of his lecture were clearly to hurt Ophelia and gain power over her, once he realizes she is dead he feels the need to express his actual love for her. His change of attitude grows confusing as he professes his dear love after her awful death, “ I loved Ophelia.
In spite of this, throughout the play it is evident that Hamlet truly loved Ophelia and that she was important to him through the letters he sent her, how he responds to her when they are alone, his reaction to her betrayal, and his declaration of love at her funeral. In the play, Hamlet sends letters to Ophelia revealing his true feelings about her. “Doubt thou the stars are fire, Doubt that the sun doth move, Doubt truth to be a liar, But never doubt I love” (Act 2. Scene 2. Shakespeare).
Therefore, Romeo Montague is indeed, Impulsive and Devoted. On the other hand, Juliet, the only child and heir of the Capulets, begins the play as a naïve child who thought so little about love and marriage. But she then made it a priority, when she met Romeo. She was happy enough to obey her parents about marrying Paris, in where they think he is the ideal man for her, but all of that changes when Romeo became a part of her life. Unfortunately, “[her] only love sprung from [her] only hate!
He pushes them into a hasty secret marriage, without the knowledge or permission of their warring parents. This sets the stage for the secrets that create the tragedy to come. Unable to face the banishment for killing Tybalt, Romeo seeks the advice of Friar Lawrence who scolds him for his despair, “Hast thou slain Tybalt? Wilt thou slay thyself, and slay thy lady that in thy life lives by doing damned hate upon thyself?” (3, 3, 116,) then when Romeo is at his lowest, Friar Lawrence cheers him up, suggesting a comforting visit to his Juliet and then his escape. “Go, get thee to thy love, as was decreed.
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.
The relationship between Proctor and Abigail is used as a heat metaphor, built on lust not love. ‘Sweated like a stallion,’ portrays the romance and passion between them. ‘Abigail, with a bitter anger: Oh, I marvel how such a strong man may let such a sickly wife be- Proctor, angered at himself as well: You'll speak nothing of Elizabeth!’ Miller shows us this to make us have the idea that Proctor is redeeming his sins, which makes us again gain admiration for him, as he stands up to Abigail about Elizabeth which shows true love and compassion for his wife, it also shows how he is strong willed by resisting Abigail’s on going demands. We can also learn to sympathise more with Proctor as it comes clear that it was a weakness from him and how he is only human to fall for a ‘startlingly beautiful’ 18 year old girl. Proctor feels he has to atone for his
This was a brave action on behalf of Juliet because disobeying Sir Capulet, her father, was considered a sin. In Scene 2 of Act 4 Juliet says: ”Where I have learned me to repent the sin of disobedient opposition.” This brings me to another point because Juliet did not truly mean this; however, she knew exactly what to say in order to make her parents happy. All the lies she told were just another way showing her immense loyalty to Romeo. Her sincerity to Romeo surpasses even the faithfulness to her family. This constant battle to be with Romeo is turned into a main them or conflict in the story, society versus individual choices.
In the two plays, ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Macbeth’, the key characters transgress the social moral boundaries. However, Shakespeare manages to create sympathy towards the protagonists. In ‘Macbeth’, he creates sympathy for Macbeth as he shows the tragic downfall of a heroic hero in despair and how he was forced into all his wrong doings. Whereas in ‘Romeo and Juliet’, Shakespeare makes the audience feel sympathy towards the young couple as other people are also to blame for their relationship not happening and how they are ‘star crossed lovers’. In this essay, I am going to explain how Shakespeare manages to sympathize with these protagonists.
It was fate that brought these two opposite people together. Two people from two big prominent families who hate one another for some ancient and unknown reason were brought together by fate, but also by irony. Shakespeare could have told an easy love story, but it had to be one with an extreme paradox – love through hatred. Fate, dramatic irony and the visions that he kept giving to his audience, all showed that the two opposites were destined for each other no matter what the practical approach might have been. Juliet says “My only love sprung from my only hate” (1.5.52).
