Lord Capulet’s own free will forced Romeo and Juliet to pursue actions, such as marriage, that inevitably resulted in their deaths, which is demonstrated through Shakespeare’s use of foreshadowing. In Verona, there are expectations for young girls that they marry a fine man and labor babies, especially in high-class families such as Montague and Capulet. In the Capulet family, Lord Capulet has prepared a bridegroom, Paris, for his fourteen year old daughter, Juliet. Although, Juliet refuses to marry Paris because she is secretly already married to Romeo, but her father does not know that.

Introduction: When people feel that they can freely express their frustrations, and feel that they are unpleased with an opinion from a government or kingdom. These types of people (such as Romeo) will often feel an uncontrolled urge to take matters into their own hands. And this will lead up to finding them in an act of defiance.

Foreshadowing is used to stubbly warn the audience of the approaching tragedy.

The prologue also is very important to have in a play as it establishes the main themes. Shakespeare gives away the ending in the prologue and highlights the key themes which are love, hate and death.
