Failure of Good Intentions to Produce Good Consequences in Romeo and Juliet

- ... v. 217-222). Unbeknownst to the Nurse, this ostracizes Juliet. Hereafter, Juliet keeps her thoughts to herself and discloses nothing to her previous confidant, “Thou and my bosom henceforth shall be twain” (III. v. 240). In critical moments, such as Juliet's decision to fake her own death, guidance from an older figure would have benefitted her. Despite that the Nurse means well, her potential reprise because of this collusion epitomizes the truth in Aldous Huxley's wry maxim, "Hell isn't merely paved with good intentions; it's walled and roofed with them....   [tags: Shakespeare plays]

Good Intentions in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

- Good Intentions in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare ‘Rome and Juliet’ opens with us being told that, “Two households, both alike in dignity… from ancient grudge break to new mutiny.” ‘Ancient’ is the key word in this sentence - a grudge so old and silly, no one can actually remember how it all started. As a result of this ancient, deep-rooted feud, “A pair of star cross’d lovers take their life.” To this extent, it seems we have to go no further than the prologue to answer this essay....   [tags: Papers]

Is Jay Gatsby in F. Scott Fitzgerald´s The Great Gatsby, a Good Man?

- To decide whether Jay Gatsby is a good man or not, one must define what a ‘good man’ really is. Although it is an extremely vague and layered term, a ‘good man’ best fits the description of a man whose intentions are never meant to harm anyone. In addition, readers must remember that the Gatsby in the novel is Nick Carraway’s version, and that is a very biased version. Yet, based off of the events depicted in The Great Gatsby, I believe that Jay Gatsby is a good man.

- What if in between good and evil did not exist. Where would you stand. Today, it is believed that everyone was born with the slightest bit of evil in them. In the Victorian Era, this theory would be considered very wrong, because one would either be all good, or all evil.
