In Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the children of two rival houses fall in love but were destined to die tragically from the beginning they met. The events causing the death of the star crossed lovers could be traced to Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. Mercutio is the one and only best friend to Romeo. He is very hot tempered, comical, and seems to view life in an unserious manner. He actively teases Romeo about his love life and is the person to stir trouble.
He was entertaining and the turning point for the main theme that climaxed the bliss and tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. With Mercutio being such a skeptic, he mocks love and makes fun of his best friend Romeo when he finds out he has fallen in love with a Capulet; Mercutio states “Romeo, Humors! Madman! Passion! Lover!
Determination and stupidity are related in the play because when people have determination, it causes them to do stupid things, like drinking poison. This is when Paris and Juliet are having a conversation of their love life in Friar Lawrence’s home, which is right after Romeo’s banishment. Paris tries to show his love and devotion to Juliet
In the story of Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare grabs your attention in several ways. Some examples are, the use of foreshadowing and dramatic irony, even from the very beginning of the story Shakespeare uses foreshadowing. Foreshadowing is a warning or indication of something to happen in the future. An example is located at the beginning of Romeo and Juliet, the audience learns, on the 6th line of the prologue, that “From forth the fatal loins of these two foes pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life.” This is a foreshadow because Romeo’s family and Juliet’s family hate each other. However, the two still fall in love even when their families despise each other, and they both die trying to be with each other.
Maturity gives a person understanding, understanding that allows for prosperity, and with prosperity, survival. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two people, born as enemies, defy their statuses to be together in love. Immaturity killed the two lovers, as immaturity had affected their ability to make plans and decisions. Juliet's immaturity affected her ability to make good plans in a negative way, as she had been rash when dealing with problems that arose. This can be seen in Act 4 of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, where after Friar Lawrence presented his plan to allow Juliet to avoid her arranged marriage, Juliet says, "Give me, give me!
Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud.

Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
Sometimes, impatience can lead to tragic events. In the play, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two star-crossed lovers attempt to be together but a family feud between the Montague and Capulet houses eventually causing the two, Romeo and Juliet, to end up in despair. Romeo’s impatience is the tragic flaw that leads to his and Juliet’s death, and is relevant throughout the play because of his actions. If Romeo had not been so impatient, then the play could have turned out differently and for the best instead of the demise that he and Juliet meet. “We met, we wooed, and made exchange of vow/...thou consent to marry us today”(Shakespeare 2.3.62).

The story of “Romeo and Juliet” is a tragic tale that will never be forgotten. Written by Shakespeare in the 1500’s it’s a story of two young lovers from feuding families. There are many reasons as to why Romeo and Juliet died, but I believe miscommunication is the primary cause of their demise.

William Shakespeare, believing infatuation was true love , gave many examples of infatuation in the play. Romeo and Juliet were infatuated as proven by Friar Lawrence’s lectures, Romeo’s comments, and Juliet’s remarks. Friar Lawrence’s lectures proved Romeo and Juliet were infatuated. When Romeo told the Friar that he forgot about Rosaline, the Friar yelled, “ What a deal of brine Hath washed thy sallow cheeks for Rosaline !” (A2,S3,L76-77) The Friar evinces the audience that Romeo *acts upon his emotions because he quickly became besotted with Juliet, and he paid no attention to Rosaline, even though he cried for months because she did not return his affections. When Romeo was exiled he wished for his own death , the Friar reminded him,” Thy Juliet is alive, For whose dear sake thou wast but lately dead.” (A3 S3 L152-153) Romeo was acting without thought and did not think about the grief he would cause Juliet if he killed himself.
