His conduct is annoying early in the play, when he is infatuated with Rosaline and again later, when he is banished. However, in his two-way love for Juliet, he is mature and sincere and thinks of Juliet before himself. Romeo becomes a strong-minded young man, battling against the odds, whose love for Juliet is not dulled by his desperate situation. At the end of the play, I sympathise with his with his despair and feel that it is a tragedy when he dies because of a feud in which he played no part.
Willy Loman has the ups and downs of someone suffering from bipolar disorder: one minute he is happy and proud- the next he is angry and swearing at his sons. Their relationships are obviously not easy ones. Willy always has the deeper devotion, adoration, and near-hero worship for his son Biff; the boy, likewise, has a great love for his father. Each brags on the other incessantly, thereby ignoring the other son- Happy- who constantly tries to brag on himself in order to make up the lack of anyone to do it for him. This turns sour however, after Biff discovers the father he idolizes was not all he had thought him to be.

He was jealous. He believed he should be living the same life but instead he lived the horrid realities of his life.Willy made a lot of mistakes in his life which set the tone to all of the relationships he encountered throughout his life.
William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream A Midsummer Night’s Dream could have easily been a light-hearted, whimsical comedy. Complete with a magic forest and a kingdom of fairies, it is an iconic setting for amorous escapades and scenes of lovers. But Shakespeare’s writing is never so shallow; through this romantic comedy, Shakespeare postulates an extremely cynical view of love. A Midsummer Night’s Dream becomes a commentary on the mystery of love, and lovers in general emerge shamed. Especially in the episodes among the four young Athenians, the lover is painted as a fickle creature, always changing his or her mind, and love as a passing phenomenon.

Importance of Stage Directions in The Glass Menagerie In Tennessee Williams' play, The Glass Menagerie, stage directions are as important to the theme of the play as the dialogue itself.

The Loman family created dreams and illusions that were far better than their reality. In Death of a Salesman, these dreams overwhelm the two characters Willy, the father, and Biff, his favorite son, but the stark reality of life eventually overcomes these illusions and forces them to face the truth. As Willy and Biff are forced to realize that they have been living in a dream world, this disillusionment becomes a prevalent theme of the play, pointing out how illusions can only hide so much for so long before the truth is unveiled. Wilson explains that The Loman family has such exaggerated, grotesque fictions about each other that the truth is bitterly weak in contrast (Wilson 80). Their illusion are so grand and so full of fantasy that when reality is discovered, they are shocked, devastated.
