In fact, in the prologue it says “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life;” the phrase star-crossed means full of bad luck. So this play is meant to have bad luck (or bad decisions?). When Romeo and Juliet decide to get married or Juliet decides to fake her death and not tell Romeo. Those decisions were foolish and self-centered decisions. Even Romeo stabbing himself after he finds Juliet was a rash decision.
Falling in love is a great risk, so is it worth it to fall in love at sight? In the play Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare tells a story where there are two feuding sides who have one child who fall in love. On one side a guy named Romeo who is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet, that meet at the Capulet’s ball and show love at first sight and want to marry soon after. But later there 's a big fight that ends up banishing Romeo so Friar Lawrence comes in and he has a plan where Juliet could be with Romeo and would get out of marrying Paris. But the wedding moves up and the plan isn 't updated so Romeo thinks Juliet is dead and kills himself and then Juliet kills herself because she can 't live without Romeo.
Consequently, this made Juliet forget about Paris and just wanted to marry Romeo and spend their lives together, but she did not know Romeo was a Montague. Not only did Romeo mess up the plans Juliet’s family had planned out for her he also killed her cousin. Ever since Romeo and Juliet met
In Romeo and Juliet, the Shakespearean tragedy, it is proved that it is not. Why? Juliet was the rebound to Romeo’s other love, Rosaline, they both take actions that show they’re immature, and Romeo is already in ‘love’ with Juliet before he gets to know her, and it shows Romeo is only attracted to Juliet for her looks not her actual self. In Romeo and Juliet they were not in love; Romeo was in love with another beautiful lady named Rosaline, and Juliet was just his rebound. Romeo was not aware of Juliet 's existence until he went to a party.
As the title says, the main characters are Romeo and Juliet. To tell you a short summary, Capulet, which is Juliet’s side, and Montague, which is Romeo’s side, are enemies to each other. One day, Romeo goes to the Capulets’ party and meets Juliet. But their families have bad feelings to each other so their love was not going to be successful. They had to meet secretly without anyone noticing and what’s worse, Juliet already had a fiancé called Paris.
Due to the death of his close friend, Romeo grew enraged and decided to “be a man” and get revenge on Tybalt. “O sweet Juliet, / Thy beauty hath made me effeminate / And in my temper soft’ned valor’s steel!” (3.1.115-117). In this quote, Romeo is expressing how Juliet’s beauty weakened him. He feels almost a hatred towards her for making him cowardly and not able to save Mercutio’s life. Since being strong is an expected characteristic of men, Romeo feels that the absence of his bravery is to blame for the tragedy.
Being separated for Romeo and Juliet only makes their connection fow stronger. In William Shakespeare 's Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the two star-crossed lovers portray their love by protecting each other at any cost, choosing one another above all else, and marrying as soon as possible. For Romeo and Juliet, it’s important for them to protect each other at any cost. Romeo had just been banished for killing Tybalt, and Nurse is talking poorly of Romeo, but Juliet won’t stand for it, “Blistered be thy tongue for such a wish! He was not born to shame.
In Scene I of Act I, Romeo is constantly moping about his failed romantic dream, Rosalind, but his emotions seem to take a rather sudden turn upon the appearance of Juliet. He states “It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night as a rich jewel in Ethiop’s ear– Beauty too rich for use, for Earth too dear… Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (Shakespeare 1.5.393). Although he has not met her in person, Romeo claims he is in love with Juliet just by
Even though he recognized the intense tension he ignored that fact and still went. Romeo also had a sudden impulse full of anger and killed Tybalt which led to him being banished from Verona. Romeo and Juliet also totally rushed their “love” and tried to force it. They immediately wanted to get married without thinking of how it would affect everyone around them. However these are true I do not think that Romeo and Juliet were the most responsible for their deaths.
Friar Laurence’s rash action in marrying Juliet, his hasty plan to avert Juliet from an unwanted marriage with Paris, and his failure to get his message delivered to Romeo in time all contribute to the death of Romeo and Juliet. When Romeo goes to see Friar Laurence after his new found love, they immediately begin to talk about marriage. Friar Laurence sees the opportunity to unite the two disputing families by marrying them. When Friar Laurence and Romeo are discussing a possible marriage, he tells Romeo “ wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast” (Shakespeare.2.3.95-96). Friar Laurence agrees to marry them knowing the danger in making such an immense commitment in just 24 hours.
