This caesura is a very important tool used in the speech to convey the message of fidelity and consistency to all men if they want their women to remain faithful to them. The reader appreciates and agrees with the Friar’s words of wisdom to Romeo and understands how the caesura develops the theme of dangerous impulsiveness of young love by highlighting that fickleness and inconsistency can ruin a relationship. In conclusion, Friar Lawrence very effectively expresses his disapproval of Romeo’s impulsive obsessions and reprimands him for his fickleness and unreliability.
He uses numerous oxymorons to emphasise his emotions and feelings about the love and hate between the two families, "Why then, O brawling love, O loving hate." Romeo ... ... middle of paper ... ...Romeo and Juliet happy without thinking enough about what is right. Juliet is terrifyingly committed to what is right in a way that shames the older people. The Nurse in Act 3 Scene 5, attempts to persuade Juliet to marry Paris, "Romeo is banished"â€¦"I think it best you married with the county. O he's a lovely gentleman."
It is love which causes Romeo to change his beliefs and his actions. In Romeo and Juliet, love is at first portrayed as a violent ecstatic overpowering force which supersedes all other values, loyalties and emotions. Romeo's language when pining for Rosaline is certainly fu... ... middle of paper ... ...erfect and flawless. Romeo asks for Tybalt's forgiveness, so that his sins will not go with him to the next life, he shows maturity, he asks lost of questions with no answers, because he can not believe she is not alive. He is jealous of death, who has a bigger hold over Juliet than him.
Shakespeare is prominent not only in inventing new words, but also in using such themes as death, love, and betrayal throughout his works including Othello. However the central theme of the play is jealousy which we face right from the beginning meeting Roderigo, who envies Othello because he wants to be with Desdemona. In the end of the play we see how furiously jealous Othello is because he is sure Cassio and Desdemona have an affair. In the story of Othello by Shakespeare it is clear that Iago plays a significant part as he is introduced right from the first scene. Iago was Othello 's ensign who was passed over for the lieutenant position in favor of Cassio.
Shakespeare introduces the audience to Romeo, a son of Lord Montague, whos House is involved in an ancient feud with the House of Capulet. Briefly, Romeo divulges to his friend Benvolio that he has a profound and absorbing love for Rosaline, but his love is unrequited. Shakespeare writes Romeo various oxymoron’s, “Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire”, to show Romeo’s ability to use elaborate language and to express his poetic nature. Romeo talks about the brawl that had previously taken place between the two families, and knows that love and hate are closely related to each other. The audience would witness Romeo’s self-centredness and concern for his own feelings, through the comparisons he makes.
Dramatic and Linguistic Devices in William Shakespeare's Othello Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’, in my opinion is one of his most cleverly written plays. It is a tragedy, similar in a way to the likes of the famous Romeo and Juliet, as there is a definite romance in the play, which quickly turns sour, due to lack of trust and jealousy, or as some might think, the tragedy is all down to manipulation and deceit. The play deals with many controversial issues such as racism which makes it unique. In Act III Scene 3 Iago convinces a man who loves his wife completely that she is having an affair with one of his most trusted subjects without using one shred of proof or any real basis. This is a man who can make the most innocent of people guilty and the most loved, hated.

Sadly this moment is short-lived as Edmund orders Cordelia's execution immediately after having killed both her sisters. The process through the book has seen Lear go from an arrogant ruler to a "bare, unacommadated man" and "despised old man." Through this process Lear gains considerable self-knowledge and learns to appreciate others. Even if we measure up the sins by and sins committed against Lear we cannot say that, "I am a man more sinned against than sinning," is completely true.
The focus in this scene is to show that Lear has so much pride that it made him blind to Cordellia’s love and the reason to why he loved. His pride made him think that flattery is love thus he gave everything to Goneril and Regan. This was his biggest mistake, leaving him completely dependent upon his two hateful daughters. He kicked Cordellia out so there is no hope of him being helped now. Imagery: blindfolded & candle on Props: red cloth, lots of chairs, map, crown of jewels.
Analysis of Othello’s Soliloquy During Othello’s soliloquy in Scene 3, ll. 299-318, Shakespeare uses the literary devices of imagery, symbolism, and antithesis to develop the state of mind of Othello during this strenuous time in his life. Othello, who seems to intrinsically believe that as a public figure he is fated to be unsuccessful at marriage, is torn between his love for Desdemona and the possibility that she is having an affair with Michael Cassio. This particular passage comes at a juncture after he denies that this could be true, and before he is finally convinced of his wife's infidelity. The fact that Othello is wavering between believing Iago and trusting his wife is reflected in the imagery Shakespeare uses in the soliloquy.
Say that she frown, I'll say she looks as clear As morning roses newly wash'd with dew ...If she deny to be wed, I'll crave the day When I shall ask the banns and when be married" (II, i). Petruchio plans to win this woman over by simply confronting her temper with flattery. Of course, the infamous Kate lives up to her reputation and is every bit as cold and difficult as Petruchio has been told to expect. After observing arguments, base insults, and even a blow inflicted upon Petruchio, the audience begins to lose faith in Petruchio's unusual methods. This extremely clever gentleman, however, will not easily give up such a dowry.
