When Romeo came in to ask Friar to marry him the Friar says that Romeo saw him previously saying that he couldn’t live without Rosaline. Then he instantly thinks that marrying a Montague to a Capulet would end the feud. This decision affects most of the outcome in this play. “To turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” Now the feuding families eventually stopped but only because Romeo and Juliet died.
But then as soon as Romeo appears Tybalt challenges him. Romeo tries to calm down Tybalt who is also his kinsmen since the secret marriage between him and Juliet. Mercutio takes on Tybalt and is killed underneath Romeo’s arm, who attempts to restore the peace. As Mercutio falls Tybalt and his cronies rushes away, leaving the Montagues behind. Mercutio curses both families under his last breath.
“Sin from my lips? O trespass sweetly urged! Give me my sin back (1.5.109-110).” He is saying that he wants Juliet to love him without knowing who she is. How else will they disobey his advice at all?
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.
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. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. 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.
Then Romeo, Benvolio, and Mercutio sneak into a Capulet party, and Romeo meets Juliet. They fall in love and are secretly married in Act Two by Friar Lawrence. In Act Three Mercutio is killed by a Capulet by the name of Tybalt. Then Tybalt is killed by Romeo seeking revenge. Romeo was banished by the Prince for killing Tybalt.
Death, tragedy, misery, love, and unity, all of these words describe the story of Romeo and Juliet, but it all revolved around Tybalt making his first terrible mistake. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare, the short story is that two young lovers secretly get married, people murder in anger, the two lovers get separated, and then end their lives in a tragic death because of no communication. But, like I said, this all revolves around a mistake Tybalt makes because of the feud between the Capulet (Juliet’s family) and the Montague (Romeo’s family). Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because, he killed Mercutio, which lead to Romeo 's banishment, which then leads to the suicides of Romeo
Romeo crying about suicide is ironic how if Romeo thought about his actions and the repercussions he wouldn’t have had to say goodbye to Juliet and be in the situation where he contemplates suicide. If Romeo had thought about the consequences that were to come with his actions he could have easily avoided a situation where he is tempted to end his own life. In addition, Romeo saying that he would rather die then not be with Juliet in the cell is an example of how without moderation there is negative consequences as Romeo will never see the women that he had waited his entire life for and the woman who truly is the one. The situation shows the theme as Romeo is in the situation where because of his rash actions, he will be banished from his home city, he will never see his family again, he will be seen as a murderer by everyone who cares for
These all come towards the end of the movie, where suspense increases and everything goes terrible wrong for both Romeo and Juliet. The first of these is an exchange between Friar Lawrence and his friend, Friar John. Friar John was suppose to send word to Romeo of Friar Lawrence’s plans, but he is unable to because he is placed under house arrest. Officials believed that he was in the presence of a plagued man, so he cannot leave to give Romeo Friar Lawrence’s letter. This scene contributes to the idea of fate because of course, when something could go wrong it had to.
Another reason Romeo is responsible for his and juliet 's death is Romeo challenges fate, making rash decisions that lead to lifelong consequences for all involved. In the beginning of act 5 scene 1 Romeo is in Mantua saying he had a dream he was dead but juliet kissed him and woke him up and one of Romeo 's servants Balthasar enters which makes romeo very happy and says all is well in the world as long as juliet is alive and Balthasar tells Romeo that Juliet is dead. Romeo cries out “Is it e’en so? Then I defy you, stars!”(V.I.24). This makes Romeo very edgy and tell his servant to give a letter to a montague that he will return that same night and Romeo 's servant leaves.
“Wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast” [Act 2 Scene 3 Line 94] these wise words spoken by Friar Lawrence is what we all must listen and abide by. Rushed and irresponsible actions will always end in tragedy and loss. In the world renowned play “Romeo and Juliet” written by William Shakespeare, although the young lovers Romeo and Juliet are impulsive and foolish, the ultimate death of the star-crossed lovers is caused by the adults; their ill-judged, irresponsible and unpredictable
An example of this impulsive behavior is when Friar Laurence encouraged this wedding without putting any thoughts into the outcomes. Romeo came to him saying he wanted to wed Juliet, a Capulet that he had met only hours ago, and Friar Laurence agreed to marrying them in secret the same day. Not only was this action impulsive, but it was also selfish. He says “So smile the heavens upon this holy act, That after hours with sorrow chide us not!” (II, vi, 1-2).
Title In every story, book, and play, there is a theme. The famous play of Romeo and Juliet, that’s written by an English playwright named William Shakespeare, suggests that the theme is that acting rashly can advance towards dreadful outcomes. Shakespeare develops this theme by using the impulsive love between Romeo and Juliet and by communicating directly with his audience. One way Shakespeare promotes theme is by reiterating the idea that Romeo and Juliet are rushing their love and marriage.
Romeo and His Stupidity The short story “Romeo and Juliet” by Sunita Apte is a story that was adapted from the play by William Shakespere. The main idea of this story is Romeo’s feelings changed within a day. Although the character, Romeo was desperately infatuated with beautiful Rosaline. Rosaline behaved as though Romeo did not exist. Romeo’s friends, Benvolio and Mercutio devised a plan to get Romeos mind off the heartless Rosaline.
