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.
“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.
She feels distressed about Tybalt’s death but cannot charge her husband, Romeo, as a murder. She is torn between Tybalt’s death and Romeo’s banishment but decides for Romeo. Romeo turns to Friar Lawrence and claims that being banished from Verona is far worse than being death. When Juliet’s nurse arrives and tells about Juliet’s sorrow, Romeo feels guilty and wants to commit suicide but Friar Lawrence stops him. Romeo and Juliet should be given their wedding night however as soon as dawn is creeping its way Romeo should leave for Mantua.
Throughout the play, readers observe the many obstacles Romeo and Juliet endure in pursuit of love. In Act 3, Scene 5, Romeo and Juliet meet for the last time following Tybalt’s death, sharing their last precious moments together. Soon after, Romeo threatens to kill himself with a knife in front of the Friar after he is banishment from Verona and his love. Romeo says, “Thou canst not speak of that thou dost not feel. Wert thou as young as I, Juliet thy love / An hour but married, Tybalt murderèd / Doting like me, and like me banishèd / Then mightst thou speak, then mightst thou tear thy hair.
He instructs Juliet to drink the potion and Romeo will be with her after she awakes. However, Friar Laurence was far too impulsive, giving in to Juliet’s begging and giving her a possibly dangerous drug, which even Juliet herself doubted, thinking that maybe the Friar had “subtly hath ministered to have me dead” (4.3.26). to cover up his involvement in the marriage. There are far better ways to avoid marrying Paris and reuniting with Juliet. Also the Friar promised Juliet he would send a letter to Romeo telling him that he helped her fake her death, which he obviously failed to do.
Death, tragedy, misery, love, and unity, all of these words describe the story of Romeo and Juliet, but it all revolved around Tybalt making his first terrible mistake. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare, the short story is that two young lovers secretly get married, people murder in anger, the two lovers get separated, and then end their lives in a tragic death because of no communication. But, like I said, this all revolves around a mistake Tybalt makes because of the feud between the Capulet (Juliet’s family) and the Montague (Romeo’s family). Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because, he killed Mercutio, which lead to Romeo 's banishment, which then leads to the suicides of Romeo
Romeo and Juliet: Peace in the Midst of Chaos Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is one of the best known, and praised, tragedies of all time. It is a dramatic play/retelling of “The Tragicall History of Romeus and Juliet,” by Arthur Brooke. Both tell the story of a forbidden love between two feuding families. The children get married in secret; Romeo is then banished for killing a Capulet. In order to be with Juliet, he illegally re-enters Verona, finds Juliet ‘dead’ in a tomb, kills himself, and then Juliet, upon finding Romeo dead, kills herself.
Romeo and Juliet then run away secretly and get married. A priest helps Juliet stage her “death”. But fails to get the message to Romeo in time. Romeo thinks Juliet has died. Romeo then goes to her tomb and commits suicide.
Prior to this, free will is such a debatable topic of why one problem is deemed to happen. An illustration, William Shakespeare demonstrates is when Romeo and Juliet decide to marry each other, within the first couple of days they meet, “she leaves me so satisfied? Th’ exchange of thy love’s faithful vow for mine” (2.2.132). Knowing that they are from rivalry families, we as readers don 't know the consequences they will later undergo. Although, Shakespeare immediately spoils his readers that, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth their death bury their parents strife” (7).
The controversy surrounds his actions that he took during the play that ultimately lead to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. To set off the chain of events Friar Lawrence agrees to marry Romeo and Juliet in secret. This would cause lots of problems in the future because Romeo is exiled. To reunite the couple Lawrence gives Juliet a poison that will make her appear dead so that Romeo can return, and take Juliet back to Mantua with him where they will live happily ever after. Since Romeo is in Mantua they have to send him a letter telling him about the plan.
