He wants to go against fate and his destiny to show his love for Juliet, which ultimately ends in both their deaths. Both these deaths were very quick decisions with very thought put in beforehand.

In the play, Brutus never regretted killing Caesar for the reason that he did it for Rome’s best interest. I also rarely regret my actions since I recognize that there had to have been a reason for them.

There are many examples of when Hate bring Love stronger but the major one is after all the fighting and deaths ‘Where be these enemies? Capulet! Montague! See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate.’ (page: 290 Line: 290 Act 5 Scene 3) The meaning of this quotes is that if the two houses never fought then the two lovers would not have been worried about getting caught by their families and would not have killed themselves.
When problems sprout like flowers, it’s quite difficult to find the root of the problem. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, two star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, end up taking their lives due to sundry aspects. However, there is one overriding aspect responsible for their deaths who happens to be Romeo’s best friend. Mercutio is the most at fault for Romeo and Juliet’s death; Mercutio is the character who ultimately convinces Romeo to attend the Capulet’s feast and because Mercutio challenges Tybalt to a fray — sparking a chain of events. Mercutio is able to force Romeo to go to the Capulet’s feast where he first accosts Juliet.

Crawford states that Shakespeare includes Hamlet’s fits of madness were deliberately used to make Claudius and his attendants confused and for them to think Hamlet’s mental health is deteriorating. Crawford analyzes, “The fact that he [Hamlet] has made it appear like real madness to many critics today only goes to show the wideness of his knowledge and the greatness of his dramatic skill” (Crawford. 1916. p 1.).
