Finally in Scene 5 when Romeo has learned that Juliet has died, Romeo wishes to go and die by her side. What Romeo doesn’t know is that Friar and Juliet planned to fake her death. This leads to Romeo going to her tomb and drinking poison to be with her in heaven. However, the audience knows that Juliet is faking her death. In conclusion, the addition of foreshadowing help add intensity to Shakespeare's plays.
If thou be merciful, Open the tomb. Lay me with Juliet.”(a5,s3). Paris loved Juliet but he was not aware that she was in love with Romeo. Paris knew he was on the verge of dying and he wanted to lay next to Juliet's unconscious body to show his love for Juliet. As shown above, in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, people we come to love will die someday is a theme seen throughout the
An example of a fate is the prologue. The prologue is a fate because it talks about love and how Romeo and Juliet cannot control whom they marry. In act one when Montague says to Benvolio, “I would thou wert so happy by thy stay to hear true shrift.” Montague is making fate with Benvolio while saying this. Another fate is when Peter asked Romeo to read the list who was attending the party, Peter asked Romeo to read the list so he would see Rosaline’s name on the list; causing fate. Fate is just a way to be rude to someone with a reasoning behind it.
Both Juliet and Romeo experience this feeling when Romeo becomes banished from Verona. The last time Romeo sees Juliet alive, his grief is affirmed with his line, “More light and light, more dark and dark our woes” (Romeo 3.5.36). He is expected to be gone by daylight, but the two lovers are clutching onto their last moments together. This love that has brought the two main characters together has, in some sense, made them foolish. Juliet would rather die than to be with another man, “If all else fail, myself have power to die” (Juliet 3.5.255).
They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival. But even before Juliet knew it was Romeo she said, “If he’s married, I think I’ll die rather than marry anyone else.”(1.5.134-135).
shakespeare uses indirect characterization to make him, and his plays, something that people still talk about in amazement years after his passing. Shakespeare uses figurative language to develop complex characters. Throughout Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses Paradox and Juxtaposition to show that Romeo is always confused about his love life, and to show how much he loves Juliet. Romeo states, “Arise fair sun and kill the envious moon” (2.2.2-25). This shows how much Romeo loves Juliet because he is saying that he wants the night to end and the next day
People know Benvolio as the beloved cousin, and friend of Romeo, but could he really be a “friend,” of Romeo when he caused him and his lover juliet to kill themselves? In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Benvolio often chooses to make bad decisions knowing the consequences, as well as kill 4 people just because he failed to help make the right choices for his friends. Benvolio is accountable for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because he often encourages Romeo to make rash decisions, knowing Romeo could get hurt. First of all, Benvolio was the one who introduced the idea of finding a new girl to love to Romeo, at the Capulet's feast. In act 1 scene 2, line 85, Benvolio is talking to Romeo about going to the Capulet's feast, Benvolio then says ¨at this same ancient feast of the Capulet's Sups fair Rosaline whom thou
Then because Romeo said that he loves Tybalt, so he took that as an insult and replied “Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries that thou hast done me. Therefore turn and draw” (SS pg 427). Yet he only pushed Romeo to fight him but Friar Lawrence did multiple things that added up to their deaths. In conclusion the Friar was the main cause for the fall of Romeo and Juliet’s fall. This is because of he was the one who marry them, he gave the potion to Juliet, and the letter Romeo was suppose to get.
After some very unfortunate events, Romeo and Juliet commit suicide to be together forever. Shakespeare increases the audience’s interest by using dramatic, situational, and verbal irony. Shakespeare presents situational irony to attract the reader and gain their attention. Romeo has fallen in love with Rosaline, a beautiful young girl; however Rosaline refuses to love him back. She is determined to live a life of posterity.
The Villains in Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet put all of their faith into the Nurse and Friar Lawrence. They think that they are good confidants when in reality it is their fault that Romeo and Juliet die. Juliet and Romeo in William Shakespeare 's play Romeo and Juliet, make poor decisions in choosing the Nurse and Friar Lawrence as their personal advisors. Some reasons being the Friar could deny their ability to get married, the Nurse can convince Juliet it is a bad idea to marry Romeo, and finally Friar Lawrence can put more effort into telling Romeo his plan about Juliet. All of these are wonderful reasons as to why the friar and the Nurse are the primary suspects of the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
