Both Juliet’s and Hermia’s fathers have arranged for their daughters for them to marry the man they approve of, one character trying to get rid of others, and the fights started due to how much one man or both men love and care for another person are the similarities between Acts 1, 2, and 3 of Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet and acts 1, 2, and 3 of his other play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. After reading both plays, you can see how alike the content in each of them are. Shakespeare uses the same techniques to capture the audience’s attention.

Although a minor character in William Shakespeare’s tragic play Othello, Emilia exists as a vital component to revealing his views on women being obsequious to their husbands and his negative connotation on marriage. Emilia’s decision to remain silent drives the play and in the end causes it to turn tragic with multiple deaths. Desdemona and Emilia can be perceived as a foil to each other because of their different beliefs for women’s roles in marriage.
The fate caused by the circumstances of the feuding families predicted that these two would not be able to live together with the complete happiness of their families. The deaths of Mercutio and Tybalt resulted partly from the marriage, not to mention the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. It seems that although they did so much to stay together, fate would not allow it. Conclusion This play is so popular during the past years and decades. And however there is evidence that this play is still popular because of the characters like Romeo who has become universal for a lady's man and Juliet for a man's lady and their dialogues and the balcony scene is known as the place where the two lovers confessed their true love.
In Othello and Romeo and Juliet the father-daughter relationships of Brabantio and Desdemona and Juliet and Capulet focuses on love and possess. Similar to Juliet, Desdemona has a dilemma of choosing a lover over her family. Both works can compare to one another because of the father disagreements and greed over their daughters.

Desdemona should have the right to marry who she wants to spend her entire life with but at such a young age her father says he knows what is best for her.

Helena that tries to seek Demetrius’ love and Oberon that tries to take Indian boy from Titania, who also loves boy. Their situations are different but all of them are connected by the love. In this play, by couples’ actions, Shakespeare shows how love forces people do reckless things. Hermia, for the sake of her love with Lysander, went against her father’s will, and laws of Athens’s. Her father Egeus said that Demetrius “hath [his] consent to marry her [Hermia] “(I.í.26) and “according to our law” (I.í.45) “she is mine, I may dispose of her” (I.í.43).
The two families are Capulet’s and Montague’s. The character Capulet, in the play is the father of Juliet. Shakespeare created the character Capulet to stir the love relationship up a bit. This adds tension to the play in which Juliet doesn’t want to marry the person her father suggests, but she really loves Romeo, but Capulet doesn’t know this. The way in which Shakespeare’s stagecraft is used, for the character Capulet, is very interesting.
Romeo and Juliet Essay Outline By: Daniella Maron To: Mr. Dominato For: ENG2D Date: May 28th 2014 Play: Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare As William Shakespeare once said in Hamlet: “Who could refrain that had a heart to love and in that heart courage to make love known?
