He shall not make me there a joyful bride...”. This demonstrates how Juliet feels about marrying Paris, but she could have just avoided this by actually telling the truth about her being married with Romeo. With all the evidence provided, it shows that Juliet was also to blame due to her not thinking about better decisions about handling her little problems that can be dealt with
Shakespeare writes the play giving the audience the final decision of who is at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Throughout the play fault can be placed on Romeo. He makes a variety of choices that lead to Juliet’s death and his own. Romeo is constantly blaming his own careless behaviors on fate.
Not being able to change their outcomes, they committed suicide from a hurried relationship. The author of the play, Shakespeare, used indications of what might have occurred and the character’s dialogue to convey no matter what actions are taken, their tragic outcomes are destined to have occurred from the beginning. In the Prologue and Act I of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, foreshadowing was used to explain that the lovers’ outcomes were destined from the beginning, with little knowledge of what
In the introductory, poetic prologue of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, William Shakespeare communicates the distinctive thematic theme of fate. He vividly foreshadows the results of fate in the opening paragraph of the play. In the prologue it states, “A pair of star-crossed lovers […], fearful passage of their death-marked love,”. This opening to the tragic play, already indicates that a death will occur because of the consequences of family and the result of their love towards each other, “continuance of their parent’s rage,”.
Friar Lawrence’s first mistake was allowing Romeo and Juliet to be able to be married so quickly without thinking it through. The Friar had intentions hoping that if he married Romeo and Juliet, it may save the family feud and put it past the families. In the play Friar Lawrence
Juliet means that she has a premonition of Romeo's death. This is a example of fate and foreshadowing, because he leaves Juliet and goes on and later he dies in the tomb. This supports the thesis, because this dream foreshadows Romeo’s death, and Romeo even knowing that Juliet had a dream of him dying, he ignores
In theory, this should have caused Juliet to feel pure hatred towards Romeo. Ironically, Tybalt 's death brought the couple even closer together in love. However, the Capulet family did not know of the secret relationship and wanted to put Romeo to his death. Tybalt 's death affected each member of the Capulet family and moved the plot closer to its tragic ending. As Tybalt 's legacy, Romeo was exiled from Verona, and for a time, could not see Juliet anymore.
(Shakespeare 394) This impulsive decision opens a floodgate to a myriad of foolish decisions. Such as later in the play, after spending the night proclaiming his undying love for Juliet, Romeo comes to the friar looking to have him perform the ceremony to marry Romeo and Juliet. This decision was made without any regard to Juliet or her feelings as well as without the blessing of the parents of either lover. No one was told about this.
In the story, the characters made choices, but it was fate that made things play out and be timed the way they were. For example, Juliet says, “Give me, give me! O, tell not me of fear!” (Shakespeare 4.1.124). In this part, Juliet made the choice to take, and later drink, the vial.
Before Romeo and Juliet even meet each other, Romeo “fear(s) too early, for my mind misgives/ Some consequence yet hanging in the stars. ”(insert page stuff) Romeo thinks that something bad is going to happen, but continues to go with his friends to the party. As they continue their walk there, Romeo tells one of his friends out loud “tis no wit to go” (insert page stuff). Instead of going home, Romeo falls into peer pressure, and goes with his friends, hoping to possibly even see Rolsiline. Even though he is pressured into doing it, he is the one who ultimately makes the final decision to go.
Is it a decision or is it fate? In Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare there were a lot of bad decisions that led to the ultimate tragedy of Romeo and Juliet 's suicide, but fate in Romeo and Juliet was them seeing each other at the party and falling in love at first sight. Fate might have a way in our life, but you make those decisions that might not be good. It can be argued that was fate the caused the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. For example, If capulet 's servant could have read the invitation list Romeo would have never found out about the ball and never would 've met Juliet.
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. The decisions we can make can cause impacts on others and our lives whether good or bad, it is your choice to make good
The blame is on Romeo because he acted too hastily throughout the play. He shouldn 't have asked Juliet to marry him so suddenly, and he should have thought more carefully bedfellows rushing back to Verona after hearing of Juliet 's death. He also acted violently and without thinking he killed Tybalt and later on, he killed Paris too. Romeo and Juliet were both going to get married, but first they needed to go to Friar Laurence 's cell. The father didn 't like that idea, but he saw that they were both really in love with each other, so he was going to marry them.
The fact that Romeo and Juliet where each from families that hated the other guaranteed they were doomed from the second they laid eyes on each other, so here death is the fault of the parents. In a way, if the Montagues and Capulet’s could’ve just been friends, all these deaths could’ve been avoided. Therefor the deaths were the parents were the parents fault, not the Friar’s. This is not accurate, because even if the families were best friends, Lord Capulet would have still wanted Juliet to marry Paris not Romeo , and they woul have gotten in a feud
Romeo 's impulsive behavior and perilous love for Juliet proved to be fatal for both of them. If he had been loyal to the Montague family, and resisted his risky love for Juliet, he would have saved both of their lives. In addition, his extreme, unbridled passion for Juliet put both of them in danger. Even though Romeo was primarily responsible for their deaths and others, Friar also contributed to the deaths of both Romeo and Juliet. By allowing Romeo’s persuasive words and undying passion for Juliet to persuade him to go along with the wedding, he put them both in a risky situation which led to their demise.
