In the Shakespearean play Romeo and Juliet, the play is mainly ran by the bad choices Romeo and Juliet make. These many hasty decisions eventually led to the death of the two star crossed lovers. Some of the decisions that will be mentioned here will be: Romeo getting involved in Mercutio and Tybalt’s “duel”, the Friar agreeing to marry Romeo and Juliet, and the two lovers rushing into marriage.
(III,i). Although the death of Tybalt is tragic, the consequences Romeo faces for following his code of honor lead to the most tragic event of all. In this quote, the prince decides to exile Romeo for killing Tybalt. “And for that offence Immediately we do exile him hence” (III,i). Because Romeo just has to follow his code of honor and kill Tybalt, he is now in exile, making it hard for him to communicate with Juliet.
At the end of act three Juliet found out Romeo was banned from Verona and she was grief stricken. Her parents then went back to the marriage to Paris,yet Juliet didn't love Paris, she was already engaged with Romeo. Juliet took the matters in her own hands and made it worse by going to friar Lawrence to seek advice. As Juliet talked to the Friar he gave her advice to drink a potion that he had made that will make her into a deathlike state that lasted for about two days, the instructions that he told Juliet was to go home and take the potion, parents or her nurse will notice and put her in their family tomb,finally when she awakes she will run off to Romeo and live happily. Juliet was worried for this idea and began to think over this process “How if, when I am laid into the tomb, I wake before the time Romeo come to redeem me?...”
“The blame Game” If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty. Friar laurence was responsible for marrying Romeo and Juliet. The nurse and them three was the only one’s that knew about it. If they wouldn’t have never kept the marriage a secret the prince wouldn’t have Romeo banned from the town and Romeo and Juliet could’ve lived happily ever after.
However, because Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo’s punishment is to be banished from Verona. Romeo creates more complications with his relationship with Juliet, especially right after they got married, in result of slaying Tybalt. There is no possible way for them to contact each other now. This leaves Juliet heartbroken, and risking everything to be with him once again. Being too vindictive and hasty to seek revenge did not allow Romeo to think of the repercussions that would affect his relationship with his
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves”, is a quote by the man himself, William Shakespeare, concerning human responsibility, otherwise known as the capability of completing an obligation, or duty sufficiently. These commitments or duties play a role in how a situation will play out, and dictate the consequences that follow. The choices made from the beginning to the end in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet are all examples of how people’s decisions, primarily those of Tybalt, Mercutio and Friar Lawrence, lead to a heartbreaking fallout. The pressure and burden weighing down the young lovers ultimately overwhelms them, causing an expeditious chain reaction. The influences behind each character’s ill-considered judgments,
Capulet, is forcing Juliet to marry Paris, to make Verona a happy place again after Tybalt's death. While Paris loves Juliet, Juliet still loves Romeo and cannot marry Paris because she and Romeo became married before he got exiled. Soon after Juliet learns about her forced marriage she plans on faking her death by drinking a potion to make her look dead for 48 hours. After the 48 hours, Romeo will meet her at her tomb and take Juliet away to be happy with each other. But as she drinks the potion we find out Romeo did not get the letter to meet her at the tomb and soon finds out she has died.
Romeo and Juliet is a well-known play written by William Shakespeare. Even though it is famous for being a love story, Shakespeare demonstrates that rebellion is closely tied together either it through the characters: Juliet, Romeo and Tybalt. By defying their families, authority and society's expectations, they set in motion the events in this tragedy.
“This shall determine that,” (III.i.130) Romeo engages in a duel with Tybalt in order to “justify” Mercutio’s death and in doing so he kills Tybalt and gets himself banished from Verona by the Prince and now he can’t see Juliet or even his family and because of this Juliet wants to commit suicide because banishment is worse than
Acting quickly on his emotions, Romeo begins to fight Tybalt out of anger. When Tybalt mocks Romeo, blaming him for Mercutio's death, Romeo thrusts his sword forward in defense saying “This shall determine that” (3.1.136). He kills Tybalt just moments after telling him he loves him. Romeo kills his wife’s cousin without a hesitation, despite his attempts earlier to keep the peace. He does the opposite of keep the peace between the families, he increases the tension between them.
Romeo killing Tybalt is a decision made by free will. As stated in The Choice is Yours: The Fate of Free Will, sometimes a teen’s brain can decide a series of actions before the person is aware of it. Romeo is furious and his brain leads him to the decision to kill Tybalt because his anger gets the best of him. Of course, most actions come with a consequence and because Romeo is banished, he will never be able to see his beloved Juliet ever again. Sadly, the fight is only the beginning to the downfall of these “star-crossed
Later, when Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo seeks revenge. After Mercutio’s death, Romeo says “This but begins the woe others must end” (3.1.125). Although Prince Escalus has publicly decreed the penalty of fighting in the streets of Verona is death, Romeo still feels he “must end” the fight. Romeo’s indubitable loyalty causes his banishment. Romeo’s over the top steadfastness is what causes the tragedy of Romeo and
Then, through letters, Romeo will be informed of this, to meet her as she awakes in the tomb, and they will run away together to Mantua. His plan has many variables that could go wrong, yet he does not consider the precariousness of any of it. He does not know whether the potion will even work in time for Romeo to find her, if at all, or if it will be her groom Paris to find her “dead”, or what would happen if Romeo does not receive the letters. The fact that he never even thinks about all of these major dangers demonstrates his naïvety. As the knowledgeable adult in the situation, what he needed to do was to guide Juliet to safer alternatives, perhaps discussing with Capulet.
Character Defense: Romeo We perceive that Romeo is innocent due to his apparent love for Tybalt and his clear disesteem to the brawl unfolding. He wanted to advent the violence thrust upon him by his love (Tybalt). He cared too much to fight him but when a good life-long friend, Mercutio, is murdered in front of his very eyes he is shaken to the core. He did this while not in the correct state of mind, cleary in a haze of sorrow and guilt not yet fully comprehending the effects of his actions. His gentle altercation with Tybalt defines his love for his friends and family.
