Romeo does not retaliate to Tybalt’s taunting, though when he identifies Mercutio’s death, Romeo is eager to find Mercutio some company, “Alive in triumph, and Mercutio slain? / Away to heaven respective lenity / And fire-eyed fury be my conduct now! / Now, Tybalt, take the ‘villian’ back again /
In the third act, Tybalt challenges Romeo to a fight due to the fact that Romeo crashed Capulet’s party. However Romeo did not want to fight his cousin in law so he said, “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love thee, doth much excuse the appertaining rage to such greeting. Villain I am none” (3.1.59-61). Romeo’s reasons were pardoned since Tybalt is very short-tempered, in result he began attacking Romeo, and Romeo did not fight back. However, Mercutio could not bear to stand down without a fight, his actions later on ended his life.
Without the abbreviated temper of them all, the tragedy of the deaths could have been prevented. Without a doubt, they are to blame for the disastrous ending of this pulchritudinous love story. This is very important because The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet had a major impact on Shakespeare and his writing. This was one of his best plays, and the one whose death of the main characters had the biggest effect. So really, who was to
Romeo and Julie final essay Love and madness seem to go very well and often together in literature. Within William Shakespeare’s classic play Romeo and Juliet readers see just this. The play follows this quote that is said by Friedrich Nietzsche which fits perfectly with the underlying tones of madness in love. “There is always some madness in love, but there is always some reason in madness.” This quote is very true for these three characters; Romeo, Capulet, and Juliet. There is madness in the way these characters show their love but there is good reasoning behind it.
The second example of impatience is when Romeo moved the wedding day ahead. Romeo was being very impatient, lovesick. If Romeo stuck to the the Friars plan, everything wouldn't have been fine. But even at the end impatience caused both of them to die. The final example of impatience is when Romeo rushed to conclusions and thought Juliet was dead.
If it weren’t for his arrogance and selfishness Mercutio and Tybalt wouldn’t have gotten in a fight, causing Romeo’s banishment. If Mercutio wouldn’t have gotten involved in this sensitive situation He, Romeo, Juliet, Paris, Lady Montague and Tybalt wouldn’t have died. Romeo was heartbroken by a girl named Rosaline and if it weren’t for Mercutio they probably would have ended up together. Mercutio being one of Romeo’s best friends was able to convince Romeo that Rosaline wasn’t worth the pain and sorrow that he was going through. In
He wants to fight, but Romeo is not budging, for he does not want to harm Juliet’s cousin. So instead of Romeo fighting Tybalt, Mercutio fights Tybalt because Romeo will not fight for himself. Romeo steps between them and tries to stop the duel, but Tybalt manages to stab Mercutio underneath Romeo’s
Later when Romeo hears of Juliet’s death he blames fate and tries to kill himself, “Is it e’en so?-Then I deny you, stars!” (5.1.25). In this example Romeo is taking responsibility for his past actions by defying fate and taking things into his own hands. Juliet is also a naïve and impulsive girl that
Tybalt came to fight Romeo but Romeo said no. After Romeo refused to fight Tybalt, Mercutio (Romeo’s best friend) came in and fought Tybalt, Tybalt then wins the fight and kills Mercutio. “This fight will decide who dies” (3.1.93). This means that Romeo and Tybalt are going to fight and that someone will have to die in this fight. This is important because the death of Mercutio makes Romeo mad, Romeo later comes back and challenges Tybalt to a fight.
In this essay the following characters and features will be compared and contrasted: Mercutio and Benvolio, their differences and similarities, how they effected the play, how they participate in the feud. I choose these features because even though they are not “main characters” they still greatly influence the play. I will explain how they effected the play, how their personalities make them foils and how this in turn effects them as characters and everyone around them.
In the Elizabethan tragedy “Romeo and Juliet” written by William Shakespeare, the characters that are known to be adored, can even be the cause of adversities throughout the beautiful play. Many characters could be accountable for the death of Romeo and Juliet. It might be the Nurse, who had very poor judgement, stringing Juliet along in a relationship that wouldn’t last. Would it be Tybalt, the violent cousin, who resented Romeo? Unexpectedly, the person who is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet is the carefree Romeo.
Benvolio, who wanted everyone to be friends, warned the guys not to fight in public. Insults were exchanged, but Romeo remembered that Tybalt is his new wife 's cousin, so he turned the other cheek. Mercutio found this totally shocking, actually dishonorable, so he offered to fight Tybalt instead. They fought and then Romeo tried to intervene, but Tybalt suddenly stabbed Mercutio. Romeo and Benvolio assumed that Mercutio has not been badly hurt because he started joking about his damage but it was no joke.
Romeo 's impulsive behavior and perilous love for Juliet proved to be fatal for both of them. If he had been loyal to the Montague family, and resisted his risky love for Juliet, he would have saved both of their lives. In addition, his extreme, unbridled passion for Juliet put both of them in danger. Even though Romeo was primarily responsible for their deaths and others, Friar also contributed to the deaths of both Romeo and Juliet. By allowing Romeo’s persuasive words and undying passion for Juliet to persuade him to go along with the wedding, he put them both in a risky situation which led to their demise.
There are many deaths in the story of Romeo and Juliet. Mercutio’s and Tybalt’s had been one of those that were most influential to the story. The passing of Tybalt created chaos between the two families, especially the two lovers. With Romeo banished, Juliet came to the resort of faking her death so that Romeo could save her, but as we all know, that plan
I believe that many characters contributed to the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet but i think that the highest contributor was Friar Lawrence because he got them married so quickly and secretly. This was the main contributor to the problem that escalated out of control so quickly. My first reason for believing this was mostly friar lawrence’s fault is because he got them married which is irreversible and caused so many problems because it was a secret. Where this started to become a real problem is when Paris tried to marry Juliet she as was already married.
