Pointing fingers to assign someone the blame often happens when reading. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is no exception. The story is of two star-crossed lovers who fall deeply in love then tragically die by their own hands. The blame could be given to the most probable characters. However, many small decisions made by numerous people caused Romeo and Juliet to end tragically.
Similarly, in Romeo and Juliet, the audience is aware that Juliet has taken the sleeping potion but Romeo isn’t, and they also know that the letter Romeo receives isn 't the letter the Friar sent to him, rather a fraudulent one. The climax scene is also the death scene in Romeo and Juliet. Another scene in Romeo and Juliet is the Prologue as the audience know from the beginning that the protagonists’ fate is set to death; “A pair of star-cross 'd lovers take their life; Whose misadventur 'd piteous overthrows; Doth, with their death, bury their parents’ strife” (1. Prologue). The use of dramatic irony makes the audience feel more involved in the story even though they can predict the ending, the drama comes from how the ending is done and at what
In theory, this should have caused Juliet to feel pure hatred towards Romeo. Ironically, Tybalt 's death brought the couple even closer together in love. However, the Capulet family did not know of the secret relationship and wanted to put Romeo to his death. Tybalt 's death affected each member of the Capulet family and moved the plot closer to its tragic ending. As Tybalt 's legacy, Romeo was exiled from Verona, and for a time, could not see Juliet anymore.
In the prologue, Shakespeare gives an introduction to the story and he foreshadows Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. In order to inform the reader of the conflict he writes, “Two houses both alike in dignity/From ancient grudge breaks new mutiny” (Prologue. 1-3). When Shakespeare writes the two houses are alike in dignity, he means that they both have the same amount of pride for their families. He also writes that the houses have an ancient grudge, meaning that they have been fighting for a long time.
Someone once said, “Life is all about risks and it requires you to jump. Don’t be a person who looks back and wonders what they could have had.” This quote means so much in the story of Romeo and Juliet and of the present day. The author seems to be saying that opportunities come, but they do not last for long and someday, regret will come. Romeo and Juliet did take a big risk for their love by marrying in secret and dying for their love. With this quote, the teenage brain makes choices with consequences, look for new sensations, and seek out social and emotional information.
In each story we find two young people who are in love, sadly though, both loves have been forbad. Our main point here is the divider which separates the lovers. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare writes, “from ancient grudge break to new mutiny” (1.1.2). Then in “Pyramus and Thisbe” Ovid writes “They longed to marry, but their parents forbade.” (947). Now that the divider has been brought to attention, we must also know that when love is restrained, it finds a way to come through.
It is safe to say most people have at least heard of or have a brief understanding of The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. If not, the story follows two young lovers who- through a series of unfortunate events- end up separated This ends with the infamous climax of Juliet faking her death, Romeo not faking his own death, and Juliet actually killing herself. While one could argue that the fates of Romeo and Juliet could be caused by either their own decisions or luck, I have substantial evidence that the former is more responsible. In order to have a higher understanding of the plot, there are a few things to know. There are two houses feuding in the land of Verona called Capulet and Montague.
While Friar says and hints at many things about Romeo and Juliet’s love, a key phrase he says is, “These violent delights have violent ends/And in their triumph die, like fire and powder”(Shakespeare 2.6.9-10). An atmosphere that is seen throughout the play is how rushed and frantic Romeo and Juliet’s relationship seems to be. As Friar is validating their marriage, Romeo
This establishes a doubtless connection between Romeo and Juliet's grim fate and romance right from the very beginning. In addition, the romantic and passionate scenes shared by the lovers are constantly being interrupted by the feuding scenes between their families as a form of reminder that their love is not meant to be. Hence, the mix in chronological order of events in the trailer serves to amplify Romeo and Juliet's tragic romance from the trailer's beginning to end by weaving romantic scenes with violent and tragic
Romeo and Juliet is a classic romance story by William Shakespeare about two star-crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, falling in love. Nevertheless, their two families have a vendetta against each other, making it difficult for Romeo and Juliet to ever truly be together. This romantic set-up has been used multiple times after Shakespeare, such as West Side Story. The story itself has very romantic and light-hearted moments, but a lot of issues that aren’t paid as much attention to can be calamitous. Despite a lot of the play exploring the positives and the beauty of love and romance, the real lessons from the story are found in the primitive and belligerent nature of the characters.
