Romeo and Juliet Paper Why was the 6 scared of the 7? In the end of the story of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet both killed themselves because they couldn’t be together when they were married and some characters that were involved with it I thought should have been punished or pardoned. Punished, being given a consequence or sent to somewhere. Or being Pardoned, they will be let go or left alone and not to be messed with. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, I think Balthazar should be pardoned and Friar Lawrence and old Capulet should be punished for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet both the Capulets and the Montagues make several mistakes, but there is one person most responsible. Juliet 's father, Lord Capulet, is most to blame for the events that occurred and for his daughter 's death. Romeo would have never met Juliet if Lord Capulet had kicked him out of the party. In scene 5 of act 1 Tybalt recognized Romeo and instead of dueling him, Lord Capulet said to leave Romeo alone. Even if Lord Capulet thought that Romeo was not going to cause any problems he should have still kicked Romeo out, because he was not invited.
The marriage of Romeo and Juliet, overseen by Friar Lawrence, was the first of many mistakes Friar made. He married Romeo and Juliet for all the wrong reasons. When Romeo first came to Friar and told him that he had found someone else to love, Friar did not think that they should be together. He immediately scolded Romeo for getting over Rosaline to quickly and said that Romeo only loved Juliet for her beauty. “Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here!
This is also his downfall because it gets him banished from Verona. That is why the plot to get Juliet smuggled to Manatua is formed and why Juliet is thought to be dead. This mistake on Romeo’s part leads to his, Paris’s and Juliet's death. This fatal slip was destined to happen. After killing Tybalt , Romeo cries “O, I am fortune's fool” (Shakespeare lll.l.142.
If Tybalt knew that Romeo had married Juliet and was now Tybalt’s cousin, then he wouldn't have willingly started a fight. To add on, Tybalt’s death lead to Romeo’s banish, Romeo’s banish lead to Juliet’s and the friar’s scheme to get the lovers together, and that scheme lead to Romeo’s death since he did not receive the letter from Friar Laurence about the plan, and that lead to Juliet’s death. To summarize, Romeo’s reversal of fortune is the death of his loved ones and
This strategy would have let Romeo come and sweep her out of death and take them into a new life together. This was a terrible arrangement since the Friar was not completely sure if the potion would put her in a short death-like coma or kill her. The third reason he takes some blame is because he did not get the message containing the layout of the plan to fake Juliet’s death. The Friar should have delivered the course of action or told Romeo in person earlier, before Juliet drank the potion. The fourth and final accusation is that the Friar did not stay in the tomb when Juliet was mourning Romeo’s death.
Nurse should be punished. Nurse should be punished because she knew that Romeo and Juliet were married and she didn’t tell anybody about it, so that caused all of this to happen. “Is your man secret? Did you ne'er hear say, Two may keep counsel, putting one away?” (1.4.1).This shows that she new about the marriage and because of that, she should be punished because she caused Romeo and Juliet to kill herself. Also because of this it caused Lady Montague to kill herself
Their ignorant decisions, including my own, caused their unfortunate deaths. I believed Romeo and Juliet’s love had the power to end the quarrel between the two houses. My quest to end the feud blinded my judgment and morality. On Monday night, Lord Capulet, unknowing of Juliet's marriage with Romeo, engaged her with the Count Paris. When Juliet tried to convince her father to cancel the wedding, Lord Capulet threatened to disown her.
This irrational decision leads to the uproar of the Capulet family which makes the decision of Romeo’s banishment. This causes heartache for Romeo and Juliet, who now have increased their chances of not being together. As the story continues, Romeo decides to return to see Juliet after he hears that she has “died”. Andrews explains that this rash decision only makes things worse: “He disregards the Prince’s prohibition against further bloodshed and takes the enactment of ‘Justice’ into his own hands” (Andrews). Andrews explains that Romeo pushes aside his prohibition and his irrational attribute rises to try to take control of the circumstance.
Romeo’s impulsive action for his cousin, Mercutio, and his family results in a worsening of his relationship with Juliet. Afterwards, Prince Escalus banishes Romeo from Verona as a consequence for killing Tybalt, and this can be considered as the turning event of Romeo and Juliet’s relationship. Romeo defines his punishment to Friar: And say’st thou yet that exile is not death? Hadst thou no poison mixed, no sharp- ground knife, No sudden mean of death, though ne’er so
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.
