Teenagers are notorious for their impulsive actions, a trait that stems from a lock of maturity, which can have devastating consequences. In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, one of the main characters, Romeo, was no exception to this rule, as he acted impulsively and ultimately paid the price for his actions. Romeo’s decision to attend the Capulet’s party led to him being recognized by Tybalt, who in turn became infuriated and vowed revenge. This ultimately led to the fight in which Mercutio was slain by Tybalt, who was killed by Romeo after he once again acted impulsively by letting his emotions control him, an action that led to his banishment from within Verona walls. Romeo exhibited his impulsive nature once more when

He is too easily manipulated and influenced throughout the play by the witches, his wife, and himself. His unfortunate flaw of being gullible is what gets him to kill Duncan, Banquo, and many other poor victims.
As the story goes on he finds Buttercup kidnapped by three men and fights to save her from an awful marriage to a prince. They notice a man in black following behind them, so they try to fight him off thinking he is the bad guy. From this point he looks like the bad guy, but is really the hero that saves Buttercup. Just like in other love moves we can see the villain turning nice slowly and trying to fight to do the right thing. When he and Vizzini are sitting across from each other with the drinks, one is poison and the other isn't.
He may approach the brink of insanity but he backs away and instead chooses to act insane in order to achieve his ends and eventually victory over Claudius,” it is all just part of the bigger plan. Hamlet gets the idea to fake insanity at the beginning of the play when Horatio tells him that he sees the ghost of King Hamlet at night in the castle. Hamlet does not believe Horatio at first, but then he sees the ghost with his own eyes, and follows it outside. The ghost begins his story telling Hamlet how he actually dies, from uncle Claudius dripping poison into his ear while he sleeps, and he wants him to get revenge. The King means a great deal to young Hamlet, as any father does to their son, and he will do anything to make sure the murderer gets what they deserve.

He started the play as a vain young man mostly concerned about his appearance and his own selfish love and the perks that came with it. However, people learn from their mistakes and this is evidently true in Claudio’s case. The plays ends as all of Shakespeare’s comedies do, with Claudio and Hero dancing with the rest in the harmonious dance of life.
Hamlet’s struggle to re-order Denmark by killing Claudius results in many undeserving deaths. His deceitful method to reach his goal destroys his relationships with characters such as Ophelia and Gertrude. Hamlet’s reluctance to capitalize on his many given opportunities to kill King Claudius results in other characters contributing to the chaos he created which could have been easily preventable. Although he reaches his goal at the end of the play, many lives were undeservingly lost in the process including his own. Hamlet’s wicked but clever method clearly aids him in reaching his goal, but also attracts unwanted forms of attention causing a negative impact on his relationships.
As Prospero is so invested in his plot to seek vengeance as well as carry out the marriage between Ferdinand and Miranda, the thought of Caliban’s, his slave’s, plot to murder him has escaped his memory. He then launches into a speech about the ceremony he’s holding for Miranda and Ferdinand, but more specifically how the ceremony is as meaningless as their roles on the island. For instance, Prospero elaborates that “These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air; And like the baseless fabric of this vision…” (IV.i.165-168). These few lines reveal much on Prospero’s mindset regarding the events transpiring, beginning with “These our actors, As I foretold you”. By calling everyone “actors,” he is demeaning life into a mere play.
Iago also uses his wife, Emilia to contribute to his plot. Iago has no real comrades; no person that he meets is not used by him for evilness. Yet, Shakespeare does not have us see Iago’s actions as uncommon. We accept that he is using Roderigo and Emilia, we accept that he will attempt to gain Othello’s trust simply to backstab him. We are made to believe that this is okay, and even to be expected.
The Character of Iago in Othello One of the most intriguing characters in the tragic play "Othello," by William Shakespeare, is Othello's "friend" Iago. At first glance, Iago seems to have no motive for the destruction he is causing. However, despite Iago's unquestionable malignancy, the motivation behind his actions lie more in Iago's quest for personal gain, as opposed to just being evil for evil's sake. In order to achieve his personal gain Iago manipulates Rodrigo, Cassio and, most importantly, Othello. Iago's main interest is the destruction of Othello.
