She dies because Romeo is dead. She couldn 't live without him. “He said that, just as with the poison of hate, the intensity of lovely passion plots out reason and self control and leads to destructive behavior” (Kershen 6). Kershen used destructive behavior to demonstrate that Romeo felt the need to kill himself over a girl he met not too long ago. Romeo is responsible for his own death and Juliet is responsible for her
Othello basically admits his only proof of Desdemona’s adultery was what Iago, her husband, had said. Othello is the one who murders Desdemona, that is a fact, but he has also redeemed most of his dignity by the play’s end by admitting the horror he has done, and killing himself when he realizes how jealous and irrational he was. But, Othello has still killed his own wife, which is something the audience cannot forget nor forgive Othello for. He was too illogical in his judgement and it caused a fatal ending. The play shows the power of mistrust and deception, and many people can still learn from it today.
/ See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate, That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love” (5, 3 281-283). The Prince is blaming both the Capulets and the Montagues for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, as their parents’ feud lead to their deaths. He is also reminding them that Heaven (or God) has now had to intervene and give real consequences to make them consider changing their behaviors - consequence being the death of their children. Had the families not been at war, none of this would have happened. Also, the secrecy involved due to the feud played a major role in the
Due to his pride, jealousy and nature of over trusting people, Othello killed his innocent wife on base of his evil doubt and brought great tragedy to many people’s lives including himself. First of all, Othello and Desdemona married each other against will of Desdemona’s father. While giving his daughter to Othello, Brabantio told him that “Look to her moor, if thou hast eyes to see: She has deceived her father, and may thee”. Othello counts this quote as proof of Desdemona being a betrayer and he doesn’t trust her. But if he would have come out of his mask of jealousy and pride and had looked at his father’s advice from another view he would have realized Desdemona’... ... middle of paper ... ... burned himself in this great fire that burned down house of trust.
Laertes becomes insane later in the play when he works in collusion with King Claudius to kill Hamlet. It is true that Hamlet is culpable for what he had done, but Laertes’s desperate act of revenge leads him to his own death which could be call as insanity. When Laertes said that ”Why, as a woodcock to mine own springe, Osric. I am justly killed with mine own treachery… here I lie, Never to rise again”(5.2.311-324), Laertes realizes he took the wrong path in search for revenge and it backfires him in the end. These two quotes supports Shakespeare’s claims by saying that revenge can drive you crazy and it
It was pay back, "what goes around comes around" "an eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth" What these two quotes are mainly saying is that you get what you give. Claudius took his brothers life therefore his life was taken away. Not only did Claudius kill his brother to marry his wife and take over his throne, but he caused the deaths of the queen, king Hamlet, Polonius and Ophelia. Hamlet was told by the ghost of king hamlet to get back at Claudius for his death, or his soul will travel on earth forever. Even before hamlet knew about Claudius killing his father he had problems.
Romeo seeks vengeance and kills Tybalt. Romeo is then forced to leave Verona or be executed. It's Romeo's fault that he is exiled, not Tybalt's. Romeo blames fortune for tricking him. “O, I am fortune’s fool.” (III I 134) Tybalt wanted to attack Romeo but Romeo attacked Tybalt.

(3,I,49-53) Even the ghost of Hamlet's father makes a comment referring to his brother as, "Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder." From these words of his father breeds the thought of revenge and hate against his uncle. In Act two and three, he leads his fellow friends and family to believe that he is, in fact, insane. Polonius, the father of Laertes and Hamlet's love, Ophelia makes the comment that, "That he's mad; 'tis true"(2,ii,97) A plan that later leads to the insanity of Ophelia, most possibly the only one that Hamlet truly cares for.
