The undelivered letter, the death of Paris and the deadly poison brings Romeo to his death. What if Romeo can calm down for a while or come to the tomb later? If he stays calm and accepts the death of Juliet, the play will never be a tragedy! “The which if you with patient ears attend, What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.” (Prologue 13-14) The death of Romeo and Juliet was predestinated at the beginning of the story, and Shakespeare just made it come truth by the events he elaborated. As long as Romeo and Juliet are still feud and love each other deeply, they will never escape from the control of
After Romeo hears Juliet is dead, Romeo says, “Is it e’en so? Then I defy you, stars” (5.1.24). Romeo proclaims his going to defy the stars and fate. Romeo is going to be with Juliet no matter what, even if that mean he has to kill himself. Fate has a plan to kill them both and Romeo is going to fulfill that plan, even if he doesn’t know it.
Fate is the only thing that one could blame for this tragedy. says to Romeo, “These violent delights have violent ends”. This is foreshadowing both Romeo and Juliet’s death by saying that the heavens have given Romeo a blessing, but every delight must come to an end. As Friar Lawrence tries to help Juliet, he could come to make things worse instead of better. His plan has many complex situations that could lead to having a bigger problem.
“A man with too much ambition cannot sleep in peace” stated by Maxx Mitchell. This statements describe the people will have some trade off in order to pursue something they have to give up on something. However the goal is really choice could lead to different consequences either positive or negative. This make me remember one of Shakespeare plays is Macbeth described as a tragic character his action is been influenced by his wife. Shakespeare believes that ambition, when taken too far leads to our destruction as shown through Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, however after he has realize what he has done it.
Piece it together and you get, “we’re going to the Capulets!” Without Mercutio, Romeo would have never met Juliet. Romeo meeting Juliet is the most crucial part in the play because it builds plot. Another is after the fight and Mercutio perishes. Since Romeo now wants revenge, he battles Tybalt. Romeo states his vengeance when he states, “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him” (III.i.122).
Another instance is after Romeo kills Tybalt, Friar Lawrence explains the positive to his banishment and points out “A gentler judgement vanished from his lips: / Not body’s death, but body’s banishment” (3.3.11-12). Shakespeare uses the words body’s death as a way to foreshadow what will happen if they end up loving each other and prioritize their love over their well being. The words body’s banishment shows how the souls of Romeo and Juliet are exiled from their bodies because they can not be together. Thus, Shakespeare uses foreshadowing to show the death of Romeo and Juliet, even though the audience knows and proves that they choose love over life Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy that has started to become present in teens lives. The play shows that you should not put love over your well being as there will be fatal
This is shown in Romeo and Juliet when Romeo screams to the stars, “I defy you stars!” (Shakespeare, 5.1.24) as a way to show how fate is messing with him. Since he believes now that Juliet is dead, he thinks that fate has made a fool of him. 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. These stars contain our fate which are thought of to be inescapable, and to show how few try to “bend” this fate, Jepp receives a poem which
Your houses!” (3.1.1579-1581). Mercutio’s words explain how both the Montagues and Capulets are to blame for his death, so he curses both families which foreshadows what will happen at the end of the play. A Montague, Romeo, is cursed for not letting Mercutio defend himself and a Capulet, Tybalt, for stabbing him. Romeo’s actions had left him with a feeling of guilt and anger. He is furious about the death of his
