Throughout the history of Shakespearen literature, Shakespeare tends to develop the characters in to a way that complements the story. For an example, in Macbeth, he shows the digression of the main character by an internal conflict residing from a mental condition, if he did not explain every detail of his thought process then the story would be bland and not a literature masterpiece. Another key example is the story of Romeo and Juliet, even though it is a romantic piece, he still assigns different personality traits to each character. Which makes them a key asset to how the story concludes and the theme the reader is left to discover. One of the biggest colliding character interactions is Benvolio and Tybalt. While only being “role” characters they find themselves being a huge part of the success of the story’s plot. Benvolio is a unsuccessful peace maker that relentlessly tries to inflict his moralistic diplomacy on the other characters, just to be ignored. While his counterpart, Tybalt is the complete opposite of him and tends to be the problem starter, and tries to manipulate the other character in to doing what he thinks is correct. I believe they are in this story to show the internal conflict that every man/woman is dealt with on a regular day basis. As a majority, we tend to go with our irrational side (Tybalt) then to go to our rational side (Benvolio) when put in a circumstance. Due to them being complete opposites, there is an endless amount of possible

In the play Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, there are many characters that are used as dramatic foils to one another. By creating these characters, he is able to give more information to the audience about the characters and give more meaning to the play overall by adding to the plot through their conflicts. Throughout the course of the play, there are two characters that stick out the most as dramatic foils; Tybalt and Benvolio. In the play, these two are considered foils since Tybalt is portrayed as an aggressive, hot-headed, and unreliable man, while Benvolio is shown as a trustworthy and rational man who takes on the role of peacekeeper and problem solver during disputes. All throughout the play, Tybalt is always trying to cause
In the story of Romeo and Juliet the two characters Mercuio and Tybalt have a lot in common, but they also have a lot that is different. Things that are different with these two characters are that, Tybalt is a ‘hot head” as a lot of people describe him. He says and does things without thinking, an example of this is when he sees Romeo at the Capulet’s party, right away he wanted to fight him but the only reason he didn 't was because Capulet wouldn 't let him. Tybalt is also an arrogant troublemaker, in the first act he gets involved with two characters who are fighting each other.
If Tybalt would have listened to Benvolio or just left him alone then the Prince wouldn’t have done what he did. The Prince came to them and told them that if they disturbed the streets again they would have to pay with it with their lives. If this whole event had not occurred then when Tybalt and Mercutio died the Prince might have not been forced to banish Romeo. The quote I used portrays just how blood hungry and savage Tybalt really is. All Tybalt is concerned with is killing some Montagues.
In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt Capulet threatens Benvolio Montague during a brawl in the streets of Verona, Italy: “‘What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds?/ Turn thee, Benvolio. Look upon thy death’” (1.1.56-57). Romeo and Juliet was a play written in the mid-1590s, and it involved two, as the play stated, “star crossed lovers” (Prologue.6), Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, from feuding families that eventually took their lives to be together. One crucial character in the play was Tybalt, a teenager of the house of Capulet and Juliet’s cousin.
Romeo and Juliet represents two families of similar social economic status and wealth but are in an interpersonal conflict between a flourishing love and a gory family feud. Juliet immensely changes during the course of the movie from a young girl to a mature young lady because she must deal with a forced marriage, abusive parents, and the banishment of Romeo. However, Romeo is a flat character focusing more on love than understanding the seriousness of the feud. When the two beloved children die, the dynamic changes as both families have empathy towards each other, therefore peace emerges from the tragic loss. Romeo and Juliet, the star-crossed lovers are very relatable and that is why we still read and watch his play four-hundred years
People in relationships are like puzzle pieces, some of them fit and some do not. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, Juliet and her father, Lord Capulet are the puzzle pieces. The two family members have a complex family relationship. Throughout the play their relationship is tested. Lord Capulet wants the best for his daughter and has different opinions on Juliet's future compared to her own.
Tybalt was a troublemaker and also a good sword fighter and picked a lot of fights. He fought Mercutio and killed him by accident. Tybalt was slain by Romeo because Tybalt killed his best friend. Tybalt was also mad because Romeo came to his party and thought that it was a
Tybalt Capulet, Juliet’s cousin, cares very strongly for his family’s reputation and upholds the family's hatred through violence. Shakespeare displays Tybalt as a volatile person in several scenes throughout Romeo and Juliet. Tybalt’s actions reveal his volatile personality and hint at his character to the audience. In Act 1, Scene 1, a fight breaks out between servants of the Montague and Capulet families and ropes in Benvolio and Tybalt.
As we can see that in Act 3.1. Tybalt (Juliet’s cousin, part of the Capulet family) initially wants to fight Romeo due to his family and his personal pride. This results in Romeo's friend Mercutio (nephew of the prince of Verona) death as he stands up for Romeo and challenges Tybalt to a duel; in which Romeo tried to prevent. However, he ends up killing Tybalt as a sign of justice for what he had done. In the same scene, Benvolio tells the Prince the truth about
“Happiness is good, sadness is bad but together, they create a good story” These words from Luna Adriana Ardiansyah fit excellent for describing the erratic story of Romeo and Juliet. This story goes up and down with deaths, bad situations and plot twists. All these events led to different tragic events and Tybalt's death was one of them. In the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Tybalt is liable for his own death because he makes irrational decisions, he has anger issues, and he always has held a grudge against the Montagues.
The Immaturity of Romeo and Juliet Immaturity can spread throughout things and people creating problems for the present and future. Similarly, Romeo and Juliet not only shows the development of love, but the loss of maturity that leads to tragedy. People develop maturity, but the amount of immaturity makes the process go backwards. From Romeo and Juliet’s fast evolving relationship to the hate between the two families, and the lack of thought in different characters is recurrent throughout the story. Therefore,the theme of Romeo and Juliet evolves around the idea of immaturity.
Death, tragedy, misery, love, and unity, all of these words describe the story of Romeo and Juliet, but it all revolved around Tybalt making his first terrible mistake. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare, the short story is that two young lovers secretly get married, people murder in anger, the two lovers get separated, and then end their lives in a tragic death because of no communication. But, like I said, this all revolves around a mistake Tybalt makes because of the feud between the Capulet (Juliet’s family) and the Montague (Romeo’s family). Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because, he killed Mercutio, which lead to Romeo 's banishment, which then leads to the suicides of Romeo

In the play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet By William Shakespeare, Romeo being a Montague and Juliet being a Capulet were born into this family feud. The two of them fall in love at a party where Romeo was out looking for the original girl he was in love with, Rosaline, and Juliet was there to meet her future husband Paris. With love playing a huge part in this play, it's concluded that Romeo and Juliet are both a Eros kind of lover.
Tybalt believes that Romeo attended the fest to mock and show disgrace to the Capulet and therefore wanted to kill Romeo. however, which in fact is not true as Romeo came to meet Rosaline and is known in the city to be a very nice man. Tybalt’s feeling about Romeo is not due to his actions but because of his passionate hate for Romeo as he is a Montague a family enemy. In addition, Tybalt Mercutio has great hate towards the Capulets and along with his short temper has caused his death and gotten Romeo banished from
