In the prologue, it is said that “A pair of starcrossed lovers [will] take their lives” (Prologue, Line 6) so, no matter the events that occur, Romeo and Juliet will end up dead. Fate’s second appearance in the play is when their eyes met at the Capulet party and when they spoke for the first time. During the Palmers sonnet, both lovers were so passionately and the connection was so immediate that they had to be under the influence of fate. . In Act Three Scene One, Fate is foreshadowing the death of the two lovers.
Comfort me. Counsel me.”(3.5,Line-205), Juliet pictures Romeo dead and taught fate left her when Romeo left, she thinks fate isn’t there but then says, if fate wants me to be with Romeo then he’ll come back. Romeo and Juliet haven 't decided if they believe in fate, they blame it repeatedly, and they are right to blame faith because, if they had free will then they could have stop their death from
After the plot has thickened the couple gets separated but are soon reunited, but not in the way they had hoped. This couple's fate will be decided in ways such as Romeo being banished, Romeo coming back to die with Juliet, or Juliet killing herself to be with Romeo. Later in the play Romeo kills Tybalt, is banished, and makes himself and Juliet almost depressed. When Juliet finds out Romeo is banished she goes looking for solutions elsewhere. In the play Juliet tells Friar what she needs to do to get rid of her problem: Give me
The readers of the play often have different opinions of who is to blame for Romeo and Juliet 's death. In the story, It 's Not My Fault: The No-Excuse Plan for Overcoming Life 's Obstacles, written by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, goes into detail about the action of blame. The story mentions, “We live in a culture of blame. People will blame anyone or anything for their misery sooner than take the responsibility to own it and make it better." What this quote is explaining is that, when a person is going through a hard time in life, blame of other people is typically their reaction.
Everything happened the way it did for a reason that is why they died the way they did. I also have valid reasoning as to why this situation is fate and not free will. It was always Romeo faith to meet Juliet from the time he was born to the time he died. Romeo didn’t just happen to crash the party that juliet’s family was throwing. He also didn’t just happen to miss the mailman that had his letter in it with the plan.
“A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, / … / The fearful passage of their death-marked love / And the continuance of their parents’ rage, / Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove.” (the prologue). The prologue of Romeo and Juliet tells us Romeo and Juliet’s fate of this untimely death has already been decided at birth. However, Shakespeare includes different places where their destiny could have been turned around. A person’s fate is never already decided because it’s that individual’s choice to do whatever they choose to do. An examination of Romeo and Juliet reveals that a person’s fate is not decided at birth and can be changed based on their decisions.
They didn’t really think much about it beforehand. When Juliet saw that Romeo was dead and she heard people approaching, the only thing she thought she could do was die as well. If s he wouldn’t have acted to quickly, things might have turned out differently. Both Romeo and Juliet’s impulsive decision making was caused by their
Who is to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s Death? In the devastating romance, Romeo and Juliet shows an illustration of how young love is able to cause destruction, not only in their lives but also the people’s lives around them. It also shows how other actor’s thoughts affected the people close to them, but the main question is, who is responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet? The death of Romeo and Juliet was not their fault but Friar Lawrence's. Friar is to blame, not only for one action that contributed to their death, but for three actions.
Fate had made it so that the priest had just so precisely chosen that path and just so coincidentally had people in his path who thought he was carrying a disease, so they could deter him from his path causing him to fail and for Romeo to never receive the news. Romeo, who truly believed that Juliet was dead made his way to the Capulet morgue where he was to die with her. If Romeo only waited a little bit longer Juliet would of woken up next to him, they would not have to die. Fate had influenced the chain of events, first by acquainting Romeo and Juliet with each other, then by causing Romeo to kill Tybalt and exiling him. And then finally by delaying the message of the priest so that Romeo could make his journey all the way to the morgue just to kill
Knowing their fate can sometimes blind people and cause them to try to avoid the fate. In the cause of Oedipus, Antigone’s father, his father learned that Oedipus was to kill him and marry his wife, Oedipus’ own mother, so he tried to avoid that fate by banishing Oedipus. He unknowingly put into play the events that led up to Oedipus killing him and marrying his wife. When Oedipus found out, he gouged out his eyes and prophesied that his own sons would kill each other in battle. This event ultimately comes to pass (Oedipus Rex).
He also believed Balthasar when Balthasar says Juliet died, Romeo then spontaneously decided he will die with Juliet, Creating the Tragic ending of the play. Romeo has many dreams in the play giving messages to Romeo yet Romeo chooses to ignore them, making his own choice instead of fate. Before the Capulet party, Romeo spoke about a dream that someone close to him will die if he proceeds into the party. Instead of listening he decides to continue forward ignoring his dream and choosing his action himself, leading to the death of Mercutio. Romeo caused the Death of Mercutio by ignorantly stepping in between the quarrel of Mercutio and Tybalt, letting Tybalt stab Mercutio under Romeo 's arm.
For them to spot each other from across the room in a place where Romeo would normally have been forbidden, is concrete proof that fate was in full command. There are many deaths in the story of Romeo and Juliet. Mercutio’s and Tybalt’s had been one of those that were most influential to the story. The passing of Tybalt created chaos between the two families, especially the two lovers. With Romeo banished, Juliet came to the resort of faking her death so that Romeo could save her, but as we all know, that plan
Had he brought the letter to Romeo himself Romeo would have been at the tomb when Juliet woke up and they would have run away to Mantua together. Instead, Romeo got to the tomb thinking that Juliet was dead and killed himself. When Juliet awoke she also killed herself, seeing that Romeo was dead. They did end up being together, but in death. Their destiny was still fulfilled, just not the way it should have been.
Both you and Romeo have stated that you would die for each other. If Romeo hears of your death, he may decide to kill himself so that he would not have to live without you. Then, if the potion does work, you will wake up only to find that your true love is dead. Then, what will happen? Will you decide that you no longer wish to live either?
