In Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the children of two rival houses fall in love but were destined to die tragically from the beginning they met. The events causing the death of the star crossed lovers could be traced to Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. Mercutio is the one and only best friend to Romeo. He is very hot tempered, comical, and seems to view life in an unserious manner. He actively teases Romeo about his love life and is the person to stir trouble.
This is shown when Lord Capulet says “O brother Montague, give me thy hand,/ This is my daughter’s jointure, for no more/ Can I demand.” (V, iii, 300-303) Their grudge created conflict between the houses, although they created harmony when they resolved it. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, love and hate would create conflict and harmony. These affections were one of the main recurring themes of this story. Love and hate are two very spontanious and overpowering emotions that can affect how characters in Romeo and Juliet
Their hasty desire of getting married and Romeo’s banishment from Verona proves that anything can withstand their love. As passionate as their love is their love ends in a tragedy with death coming to silence them and their love dying off. Who’s to blame for the two star-crossed lover deaths? To start off with one of the blames would go towards Mercutio and Tybalt. Both get into an argument which engages Tybalt to kill Mercutio.
“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? 3rd point: They need to learn the lesson because Romeo gets into a fight with Tybalt after he killed Mercutio.Romeo loses his best friend but doesn’t think about his wife. Romeo is emotionally confused so he says, “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him (3.1.91).” Romeo just kills his wife's cousin without thinking how she would feel or what would happen.
In Shakespeare 's Romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, show they are in love in many ways, such as the fact that they are willing to die for each other. Romeo demonstrates part of this willingness when he says, “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight. Let’s see for means. O mischief, thou art swift to enter the thoughts of desperate men!” (5.1.36-38). As a result of saying this, Romeo shows us that he is looking for a way to die in order to join Juliet in death, even though the audience is shown she is not really dead.
The two marry in secret and plan to live a happy life together before a deadly fight breaks out between the Montagues and the Capulets and the lovers are separated. The heartbreaking story consists of risky decisions and bad timing. Romeo’s own impulsive nature, demonstrated when he kills Juliet’s kinsman, breaks Verona’s law of banishment, and suicidal act, all contribute to the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo allows his thirst for revenge to cloud his logical reasoning when he kills Tybalt who has just murdered Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend. Mercutio defends Romeo against Tybalt’s insults with comebacks and later his sword.
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.
Foreshadowing is used to stubbly warn the audience of the approaching tragedy. Friar Lawrence alludes to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet that will result from their rushed marriage when he tells Romeo in ACT 2, scene 6, line 9, “These violent delights have violent ends.” With violent delights referring to their fiery passion and violent ends to their deaths. Another feature used is simile, in ACT 1, scene 4, line 26 Romeo uses a simile when talking to Mercutio, “Is love a tender thing? It is too rough, too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn.” In this simile Romeo compares love to a thorn. Ultimately, Romeo and Juliet beautifully written play, that explores the tragedy of forbidden love through plot, literary devices and aesthetic features.
