Essentially what is going on during this time is that Mercutio and Benvolio are forcing Romeo to go to a party so he can invest his time in a new girl instead of moping about Rosaline, who is the girl Romeo loved before. If they had never urged Romeo to go to the party, he most likely wouldn 't have gone to the party, and had never met Juliet, thus stopping the unfortunate events that were to happen next. Another example would be the event where Mercutio gets killed by Tybalt. Since Romeo’s best friend dies, he gets extremely angered, causing him to kill Tybalt. This event could have been easily avoided by Mercutio choosing his actions differently and wisely to avoid getting killed by Tybalt, or he could have calmed down instead of engaging in violence.

At the party in Act I scene 5, Tybalt 's quick temper foreshadows the fights between him and Romeo that come later in the play. At that instance, Capulet stops Tybalt from killing Romeo right then and there.

Hermia was just told that if she disobeys her father’s orders to marry Demetrius she can get killed and Hermia answers Lysander’s question: “Belike for want of rain, which I could well Beteem them from the tempest of my eyes.” the metaphor “rain” suggests her tears are like rain, she is crying so hard that her tears flowed like rain; this means that she is very melancholy that she couldn’t marry the love of her life, Lysander. Additionally it might also be shocking and weird for the audience back in the Elizabethan era, because they were living in a Patriarchal society, and that if you don’t obey your father you can die; because Hermia isn’t like the other women characters

This story seems so outrageous and archaic. However, after reading the summary of the story provided in the article, I was reminded of the plotline of one of my favorite musicals, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. In this film, frustrated by not being able to woo any girls, a band of brothers kidnaps a group of townswomen to be their wives. While this movie makes fun of the actions of the brothers, in the end, the brothers do succeed in procuring wives. This idea that women are objects to be claimed at ones’ leisure is still existent in
