As one of the most complex characters in the play, Romeo and Juliet, Mercutio’s purpose is to act as a static catalyst for the death of most of the characters. Shakespeare uses Mercutio’s character cleverly as the kind of character that stays in the background, but influences the rest of the cast in the utmost amount. Mercutio’s light and occasionally sardonic humor at inapt times relieves the play from being a complete tragedy and allows the audience a false sense of security before calamity strikes, such as the death of his character. Mercutio also stands as a consistent character to prove that despite the fact that the majority of Shakespeare’s characters are unpredictable and impulsive, there has to be at least one character to steady

He even tells Romeo that he mistook what he felt for Rosaline as love when it was not, and therefore not be too haste, " They stumble that run fast" (2.2.94).

“Holding a grudge doesn’t make you strong; it makes you bitter. Forgiving doesn’t make you weak; it sets you free.” This quote was once stated by Dave Willis, and teaches those that forgiving is something you can do to strengthen your life, not to weaken it.

Society loves putting people into a box and pre-determining their destinies based on background, race, and other damaging stereotypes; this confines people to their understanding of what they are worth and how much they will get out of life with that worth. Patriarchal societies are typically all that we see in modern day, and when looking at a patriarchal society, normally, men are the providers while women are the nurturers. It is believed that a woman’s place is in the house to mother the children and to take care of the house, and men are expected to be the bread-winner. For most of recorded history, these assumptive roles were filled by men and women who did not know better. However, as times have progressed, people are challenging these roles; yes, there are women that are innately nurturing and men that are innately protective, but there are also people in this world who want more out of life than what they are expected to do. Juliet from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet grew up in a society where it was not normal to fight against the standards for women. She is a young girl that plays into the idea of love, marriage, and being a wife in the aristocratic world of Renaissance Verona, and the relationship between Romeo and Juliet has come to represent this idea of true love and sacrifice. And for centuries, Juliet has been played into this young, naïve girl who is swept off her feet by some guy at a party. The audience and popular culture have forgotten that both Romeo
Shakespeare, does an amazing job with counter balancing the two main characters of the play, by giving Cleopatra the masculine qualities that Antony did not possess. The roles of masculine and feminism are obscured, as both characters Antony and Cleopatra swap roles. As they both embrace each others masculine and feminine qualities, it 's quite inevitable for them to not fall in love. As W. Bakers stated, “Antony and Cleopatra can cross gender boundaries without losing their sex roles as man or woman” (2). Gender roles in this play is a key thing to look at, and it is perfectly executed in the play when Cleopatra puts her “tires and mantles on Antony whilst / she wore his sword Philippan” (92). Shakespeare highlights his knowledge, between knowing that both males and females share and intertwine both masculine and feminine qualities.
