The feud of the two houses had annoyed Verona. The blood of those who killed because of hatred, were crying out for the folly to stop in order to live. Moreover, fate seemed to plot the end of the folly feud by letting Romeo fall in love with Juliet. But love was a storm, because sudden love was madness and the fire of youth disturbed the balance. Hate and hot blood put an end to all the chances of marriage and caused death (Masefield,70-71).Shakespeare perfectly shows anger thought out his play.
This shows that they fight with each other so much and this makes it hard for Romeo and Juliet to make their marriage public so they must keep it a secret since the families are mortal foes. This meant that Juliet could not admit she was already married to Romeo her “enemy”. “He’s alive and victorious, and Mercutio’s dead . Enough time with mercy and consideration”act 3 scene 1 line 1. This shows that Tybalt had killed Mercutio because Mercutio hung with Romeo and hated Montagues.
Could a feud be the cause of its own end? In Act I of Romeo and Juliet the reader learns of a feud between the Capulets and Montagues. In Act V of the play the feud is resolved with the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The feud is responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet since it prevented then from being married publicly. The feud also caused the fights which led to Romeo’s banishment.
In Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet are burdened by forbidden love and death is the only way they can be together. Their love is torn between the feuding families of the Montagues and the Capulets and death is the only solution to relinquish their lives for each other. Because of this, death is the hero while love is the villain. In Act I Scene V, Romeo says, “Is she a Capulet? O dear account!
Tybalt 's death in Romeo and Juliet is precisely planned on multiples aspects. The reasons that lead to his death also play into teaching the theme behind his character, which can be used to represent anger and what it drives you to do. On the same hand, though, Tybalt is very weighed down by his pride and honor. Taking this into account, it can be argued that Tybalt is written to express the dangers of being hostile and close-minded; as soon as he sees Romeo at the party, for the rest of the play, he is set on his revenge against the member of his enemy family. Being ruled by his set of ideas and emotions and his persistence with these ultimately
Romeo and Juliet’s Decision Making Process A prologue reads: “From forth the fatal loins of these two foes /A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life” (1.1.5-6). This famous quote was echoed around the story of Romeo and Juliet and told of two families and their feuding relationship. Written by Shakespeare, the story contains the theme “Think through the choices you make.” This theme plays a big role in the beginning, middle and end of the story. When Romeo kills Tybalt, Juliet doesn't tell her parents about secretly marrying Romeo, and when Juliet is so depressed, she tries to kill herself are all ways in which this theme is reflected. The story of Romeo and Juliet still plays a big role in today’s society and challenges many conflicts people face today.
In this particular scene Romeo’s haste is revealed whenTybalt kills Romeo’s best friend, Mercutio, Romeo throws caution to the wind and prepares to end Tybalt’s life. Romeo is a very hurried person in seeking revenge as his anger overrides rational thought. Additionally, Romeo shows the same trait when he find his love Juliet in the Capulet tomb, he states, “Here’s to my love! (drinks) O true apothecary, Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die” (V.III.119-120).
Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel that leads to the banishment of Romeo and his and Mercutio’s death. As a result of Romeo’s banishment, there is a flaw in the plan that Friar and Juliet develop to reunite the lovers. There is a miscommunication between the Friar and Romeo when Romeo comes back to Verona to find Juliet dead rather than learning the details from Friar’s letter which never got to him. After seeing Juliet’s corpse, Romeo drinks a deadly poison moments before Juliet wakes up. When Juliet sees that Romeo is dead she proceeds to stab herself with a dagger.
This headstrong devotion leads to his demise. Later, when Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo seeks revenge. After Mercutio’s death, Romeo says “This but begins the woe others must end” (3.1.125). Although Prince Escalus has publicly decreed the penalty of fighting in the streets of Verona is death, Romeo still feels he “must end” the fight. Romeo’s indubitable loyalty causes his banishment.
The play is Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, and the theme of the play is the power of love. I have chosen the secondary character and Juliet's cousin Tybalt, and he influences the outcome of the story with his harsh and violent nature, ego, and hatred of Romeo's family. Tybalt is introduced as an angry, brash person and his persona helps greatly with the escalation to the eventual tragedy. His ego and loyalty to his family lead him to challenge Romeo to a swordfight, wherein Mercutio stepped in and ultimately sacrificed himself for Romeo to have the upper hand in the battle. It is argued that the tragedy happened consequently because of Tybalt's anger towards Romeo and his insult "thou art a villain" which in their time; was very
