Friar Lawrence offers advice that hehimself does not follow. While his advice is well meaning, because he doesnot follow it, terrible events occur. The death of Romeo and Juliet, and,indirectly, Tybalt and Mercutio, are due to Friar Lawrence’s inability to backup his own advice with action. For example, had Friar Lawrence gone with hisown advice that marrying Romeo and Juliet would be too hasty, Romeo andJuliet would not have ended up dead. But, in the end, he married the coupletoo soon, eventually resulting in a disaster.
This happiness is sharply contrasted to the sadness and anger that takes over, when Balthasar tells Romeo of Juliet’s death. The true tragedy is that the reader knows Friar Lawrence sent a message to Romeo telling him of Juliet’s fake death and that Romeo had not yet received the news. Balthasar’s news results in Romeo immediately buying poison and rushing to Verona with the intent of dying beside Juliet. “A dram of poison; such soon-speeding gear/As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead” (5.1, 63-65). It is through all of these errors and mistakes that the plot of Act 5, Scene 1 helps to make Romeo and Juliet a true tragedy.
Romeo, in an act of revenge, kills Tybalt. The Prince, trying to maintain peace, banished Romeo from Verona. The Nurse brought the news to Juliet “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that killed him, he is banished” (Romeo and Juliet 2. 2. 69-70 ) This made Juliet miserable over Romeo's banishment, meanwhile her parents thought her unhappiness was over Tybalt's death.
His willingness to slaughter the man for so weak a reason is frightening though. It helps to show how twisted Chillingworth truly is. During the end of the novel though, Dimmesdale thwarts Chillingworth’s revenge plot by telling the Puritan community how he had an affair with Hester. This act absolutely ruins Chillingworth because he no longer possesses the power over Dimmesdale. All the horrible acts he had done in the past were undone, because Dimmesdale "Hast escaped me!"(228).
He pressured her into drinking the concoction out of desperation. Lord Capulet wanted the best for Juliet but ended up playing a role in her death along with several others as well. Hasty decisions and poor choices resulted in a tragic ending. Romeo, Friar Lawrence, and Lord Capulet all played a major role in the deaths throughout the story. They contributed in a domino effect where one wrong decision results in a chain of
Romeo and Juliet- Who's Fault was it A single decision can effect the whole outcome of a situation whether it be positively or negatively. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, two families grudges separate two lovers Romeo and Juliet. The misfortunes of both Romeo and Juliet is based around the Friar and the apothecary's choices to give both Romeo and Juliet illegal drinks. Friar gave Juliet the sleeping potion so she would not have to marry Paris and could be reunited with Romeo and the apothecary gave Romeo an illegal drink that went onto harming him. These two key characters are the ones to blame for this whole confusion which ended in Romeo and Juliet dead because of no communication.
By saying these words to her he is crassly calling her a harlot, and making to appear that he never really loved her. Ophelia made one decision and that was to love Hamlet, and now he is using her actions to make her feel inferior and sinful. Up to this point in the play, Shakespeare depicted Hamlet as a mad man hell-bent on avenging his fathers suspect death, however: his cruel outburst at Ophelia is not a turning point in the story in which he goes from being a hero to being a cold-hearted oppressor. Hamlet tells Ophelia that she will have to ‘marry a fool’ because ‘wise men’ would know better than to marry her; he yells at her ‘get thee to a nunnery’, and yet the way it fits into the plot makes it seem almost expected. As the plot progresses Ophelia begins to lose her mind, resulting in her eventually suicide, but at no point his Hamlet called out for his harsh words against her in a significant way.
The cause of the conflict, his sin of lechery with Abigail destroys his very belief in his own integrity, ‘he is a sinner, a sinner not only against the moral fashion of the time but against his own vision of decent conduct’. The potential for growth is inherent in any theatre of conflict. But that growth can only happen where there is courage and humility and an unswerving commitment to truth. When Elizabeth Proctor is arrested and taken to jail and charged with witchcraft her husband is finally forced to go to Salem to openly declare his adultery in order to discredit Abigail. At this point, there is an almost palpable sense of relief for Proctor, ‘we are as we always were, but naked now, and G-d’s icy wind does blow’, as if something impeding his potential for growth has had last been

Loneliness puts The Monster in a mentally unstable position. He believes that he is a monster for the reason being he was created by one. In comparison, Othello’s betrayal is demonstrated throughout the play, but especially through Iago when he confesses to the audience his plan to manipulate and destroy Othello’s love life with Desdemona. Although Othello trusts Iago with anything, Iago hates the “Moor” and is willing to do anything to destroy him. Iago feels that the best way to do so is by manipulating Othello telling him that his wife is cheating on him with Cassio, who Iago coincidently hates as well.
