Romeo Montague 's fatal flaw was his impulsiveness due to falling in love and marry Juliet, becoming a murderer, and taking his own life . One reason Romeo was impulsive is because he fell in love with Juliet and married her only a day after meeting her. Romeo claimed to be in love with Juliet the first time that he saw her and immediately began obsessing over her. He kissed her and began talking about marrying her the night that they met.
Young men’s love then lies/ Not truly in their heart, but in their eyes” (II., iii, 65-68). This shows how immature Romeo was when he met Rosaline, because he loved the sight of her, but did not really know her and it shows how he matured after he met Juliet. Also, when Romeo hears of Juliet 's death and goes straight to an Apothecary to get a poison. He does not do what he does throughout the entire play, which is consulting with Friar Lawrence. Romeo does not talk to the Friar about Juliet 's death, instead he takes it into his own hands.
For example, the balcony scene where Romeo is confessing his love to Juliet. Juliet warned him to not come over to because he may be killed but he truly believed that true love would have kept him safe. Romeo foolish decisions explains why he does not think about his decisions because he seemed to have been clouded by his desires. Not being able to not think clearly must have caused the many poor decisions Romeo tends to do later in the play. Juliet also is quickly clouded by her desires in many cases.
Romeo led Juliet to believe that he was exceptionally in love with her, when he most likely showed a pattern of this behavior in the past. This lead her to become attached to him, prompting her to feel as though she could not live without him. Romeo was also quite reckless within the play. He often acted without completely thinking things through, ultimately leading to Juliet’s
Most people see William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as a romantic love story of two teens who killed themselves for each other, but who is really to blame here? Friar Laurence is at fault for their deaths because he married Romeo and Juliet, did not have a good plan set up, and left Juliet alone in the tomb. One reason why Friar Laurence is at fault is because in Act Two, Scene Three, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet secretly. Friar Lawrence told Romeo he had doubts because they had just met, also, Romeo had just been so in love with Rosaline the day before, and should wait. Romeo disagreed, and the friar gave in and married them anyway.
Also, by him listening to his dreams he would have made either little or no poor choices later in the play which results in his death. Lastly, throughout the play, Romeo and Juliet have been threatening suicide to solve their problems (Shakespeare 973-1014). As most people know and understand when people threaten suicide something is wrong and because they were stressed they made more bad choices. That is why Romeo and Juliet are the most guilty people causing the tragic
The hasty decisions and actions of Romeo, Friar Lawrence, and Juliet result in the final tragedy of the play. Romeo is the most guilty of hasty decisions and actions because he does not think about his actions and mostly acts on quick impulses that usually lead to death. In Act III, when Tybalt kills Mercutio because of Romeo stepping in the way, Romeo acts impulsively and attacks Tybalt. Romeo then cries out and says, “Away to Heaven, respective lenity, / And fire-eyed fury be my conduct now!”(Shakespeare 429) Romeo then kills Tybalt, which is an impulsive act that gets him banished from Verona. Romeo regrets his actions later in the play.
Romeo found out about the party from a servant who could not read. One of the first bad decisions Romeo made was to chose to go to that party for a girl named Rosaline. When he sees Juliet, he completely forgets about Rosaline (Shakespeare, Act I, Scene ii, Page 385). This evidence shows how Romeo is immature and “falls in love” very quickly.
His beloved Rosaline, which he could not make absent in his mind, has suddenly vanished from existence the moment Romeo gets a glimpse of the pretty face of Juliet. Romeo forgets about Rosaline when he sees Juliet, as he states “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight, for I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”(220.127.116.11). Romeo notices how his love for Rosaline was not true, yet he still chooses to “love” someone new immediately, although this is just the same as his previous “love.” His judgement of the love he feels is based merely on beauty, although this is physical attraction, which heh does not understand. Romeo and Juliet are young and have not
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.
