When Tybalt comes looking for Romeo, he runs into Mercutio. Because of his big mouth, Mercutio gets himself killed. 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 / That late thou gavest me; for Mercutio’s soul / Is but a little way above our heads, / Staying for thine to keep him company.
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.
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.
This quote means those who rush, and go fast will stumble/fall which sets you up for failure. If Romeo wouldn't have rushed he wouldn't have "stumbled" died in the play. 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.
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
When Romeo says this, Tybalt becomes confused and enraged. 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
Romeo calls himself “Fortune’s Fool” and realizes that he is going to have to face a punishment for his actions, that are of course caused by fate (3.1.142). 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
This is important because Tybalt wanted to kill Romeo. 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.
Both dear friends of the young Romeo. These two friends, so different in their ways are never found apart, or ever far from Romeo. 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 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.
