Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare combines love, romance and conflict mixed with murder in Romeo and Juliet in Act 3 Scene 1 which makes this play so dramatic. Shakespeare uses techniques such as dramatic irony, pathetic fallacy and imagery which leave the audience excited and tense throughout the play. I will explain how Act 3 Scene 1 is made so dramatic. Shakespeare uses vivid and powerful imagery to portray a picture in the audience’s mind about where consequences of a grudge could lead. ‘A plague a’ both your houses!’ Shakespeare has used the word plague because plague is a disease that kills people one by one and he used the word to define grudge as something that kills everyone one by one.
Is Brutus the hero or villain of the play? To be precise, the question is not if Brutus was good or bad but rather is the place hero or villain better for him. It’s a mixed opinion but the majority of people will have to agree the Brutus is indeed the tragic hero of the play. Sure Mark Antony is the first obvious answer but Brutus has done things that even though might be unforgivable, if people were to closely examine his actions more carefully then indeed, Brutus is the hero of the play and this can be proven. Brutus is a loving character that over the play is well known by everybody and his love and caring trait is known through the following quote: “O, he sits high in all the people’s hearts; / and that which would appear offence in us, / his countenance, like richest alchemy, / will change to virtue and to worthiness.” (I, iii; 157-160) In this scene, Caska wants Brutus to be in the conspiracy as he complements him because Brutus was well known and definitely a great leader.
For instance in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the feud between the Montagues and Capulets caused pain and suffering towards the innocent characters such as Romeo, Juliet, Mercutio and Tybalt. This never ending cycle of vengeance in the play shows that if society relied solely on revenge, everyone would suffer. Revenge even has the powers to destroy love, one of the stronger forces in humanity, as it lead
Romeo and Juliet By: Steff Commentary This section may appear to readers as unimportant because it is just Capulet and Tybalt talking and nothing happens. On the contrary, this passage illustrates how the characters handle situations given. This may foreshadow problems for each character such as maybe future aggressive conflict with Tybalt. The character Capulet is all a façade. He appears warm hearted and eager to end the conflict at first but then you see his real intentions and his real state of mind is focused on “what the people want” and not what is best for Romeo under the given circumstances of the families’ feud.
Friar Laurence Essay As human beings, we often find ourselves wanting to blame somebody for someone’s mistake. That is the case of Friar Laurence. After rifting through the pages Romeo and Juliet, I believe that I have found adequate evidence that point to the fact that Friar Laurence was not the cause of the tragedy of Romeo and Juliette for he was nearly an advisor and somebody who tried to help both Romeo and Juliet to find their happy endings. It was the actions of Romeo and Juliet who led themselves to their own tragic demise, for they both have minds of their own. But I do believe the advice of Friar Laurence was well meaning but it was naïve in the assessment on how strong the feud is and shows that he did not foresee the punishments of a clandestine marriage.
They both love each other however they’re relationship is made difficult when they realise they are enemies “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”. They see no reason as to why they must hate each other, but the rest of the family see it differently “What's in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet”. This is made even more difficult when Romeo and Juliet get married, Tybalt feels insulted that Romeo entered the Capulets ball and wants to fight him (he feels dishonoured and filled with hate) however Romeo will not fight him because they are cousins now and part of the same
In The Tragedy of Macbeth, William Shakespeare demonstrates the build of guilt and remorse that Macbeth and his Queen begin to develop, consequently aids and foreshadows their demise. Shakespeare uses a wide variety of imagery to emphasize how guilt affects Macbeth’s life. Also, throughout the play, multiple pieces of evidence are displayed to prove how Macbeth and Lady Macbeth both change drastically from the beginning to the end of this piece. Finally, towards the end of the play, Macbeth finally comes to terms with himself and his devious actions, thus restoring his old mentality. Guilt is a factor of human nature and touches just about everyone at some point.
To begin with, the battle between the Montague’s and Capulet’s caused the death of Mercutio and Tybalt. To illustrate the point, Tybalt killed Mercutio because he was close to the Montagues, which he despised, and Mercutio had challenged him to a duel. Before Mercutio died in 3.1 he exclaimed, “A plague a both your houses!” meaning that the fight between the two families are like a plague where there’s no benefit (3.1. line 106). This implies that Mercutio felt that he was caught up between the everlasting feuds between the two families and he wanted no other innocent people to die from this conflict between the two families, therefore shouted out this fraise. In addition, in 3.1 Romeo murdered Tybalt to avenge the death of Mercutio by saying “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” (3.1. line 129).
Hostile Parenting destroys a loving relationship between a parent and a child, in a way that affects the child in all aspects of their life. The child is being abused and manipulated; they feel fear and dread, anxiety and a virtual phobia when the requesting parent wants to spend any time with them. They see nothing good or positive about the parent who the child is being targeted against. At this time, I am personally that other parent. My own child and I are victims of Parental Alienation i.e.
In the world we live in, it seems that every other person is out for self gain They will step on anyone and do whatever it takes to get what they want, but does that make them purely evil? What if in their final moments they go something good? Or if their evil ways are result’s of circumstances that they can no control over? It’s a hard line to draw and in King Lear Shakespeare explains why through the use of conclusions. The most important conclusion Shakespeare has drawn about the nature of humanity in King Lear is the fact that evil is not something the gods have cursed you with at birth but it is something that you choose for yourselfACt .
