Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
Romeo thinks that his blurred sense of reality due to romanticism has let Mercutio die to Tybalt. Romeo furiously states, “[His] very friend, hath got this mortal hurt / In [his] behalf. [His] reputation stained / With Tybalt’s slander…” (III.1.115-117). This shows how complicated Romeo is, from being dramatic about being romantic and then immediately becoming very serious and furious at Tybalt for the death of his friend Mercutio. The drama from Romeo and Juliet mainly comes from the complexity of all the different characters in the play.
It became worse for Romeo when it was said that he was the one who had killed Tybalt. A second situation in which honor affected someone’s opinion of someone else was in Act 2 Scene 4 when Mercutio said, “Why, that same pale hard-hearted wench, that Rosaline,” He says such derogatory things about her because of Romeo’s complaints of his heart being broken by her, thus tainting her reputation among the
However, Mercutio's rash, emotionally driven response is a poor response, not only because fighting on the streets breaks the Prince’s newly decreed law, but also because it leads to his own death. His death sparks vengeance in Romeo which gets him exiled for killing tybalt, and inspiring the Capulets to wed their Daughter,
In the play Romeo and Juliet, by Shakespeare, there are many important moments leading to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet’s fatalities at the end of the play were caused by a variety of actions, yet the trait of greed is the most prominent. The characteristic of greed is built into every character in the play. However, the characters are greedy in different ways. Montague and Capulet are greedy because they refused to end their dispute even though it brought harm to their family and citizens.
In the Shakespearean play Romeo and Juliet, the play is mainly ran by the bad choices Romeo and Juliet make. These many hasty decisions eventually led to the death of the two star crossed lovers. Some of the decisions that will be mentioned here will be: Romeo getting involved in Mercutio and Tybalt’s “duel”, the Friar agreeing to marry Romeo and Juliet, and the two lovers rushing into marriage. To begin, one of the impetuous decisions Romeo makes: Getting involved in Mercutio and Tybalt.“Hold Tybalt! Good Mercutio!” Romeo should have just stayed out of these two “dueling”(although it wasn’t really fighting) because had he stayed out Mercutio wouldn’t have been killed and the law would have caught up with Tybalt for dueling
Sit you down/And let me wring your heart. For so I shall/If it be made of penetrable stuff,/If damnèd custom have not brassed it so/That it is proof and bulwark against sense. (3.4.30-40) This show the hidden meaning of Hamlets violence with being love hurt, in his head he feels as no one loves him and is all alone to suffer with his grief. Letting Hamlet be so hurt by love lets the reader and audience see how the love really can affect a person view into driving the play in madness and despair. Hamlet is madness is started by love but is infused with jealousy.
It is also shown with Tybalt who is very stubborn and reckless, leading to his end. Juliet also portrays tragic flaw, as she is very impetuous and impulsive when making decisions, leading to her demise. Therefore, an influential theme found in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is that a simple mistake caused by a tragic flaw can lead to tragedy. Romeo, the protagonist of Romeo and Juliet, faces death because of a simple flaw. Romeo is a Montague, enemy of Juliet’s family, the Capulets.
Death and tragedy engulf the people of Verona, who is to blame for this big mess? If you go back to the beginning of William Shakespeare 's play “Romeo and Juliet” it is easy to see this tragedy wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Mercutio and his tendency to meddle in other people’s lives. First he convinced Romeo that his love for Rosaline wasn’t worth it and he needed to get over her. He then led Romeo to his horrific fate when he forced Romeo to crash the Capulet party, where he would first meet his future bride Juliet. If it weren’t for his arrogance and selfishness Mercutio and Tybalt wouldn’t have gotten in a fight, causing Romeo’s banishment.
Romeo calls himself “Fortune’s Fool” and realizes that he is going to have to face a punishment for his actions, that are of course caused by fate (3.1.142). Later when Romeo hears of Juliet’s death he blames fate and tries to kill himself, “Is it e’en so?-Then I deny you, stars!” (5.1.25). In this example Romeo is taking responsibility for his past actions by defying fate and taking things into his own hands. Juliet is also a naïve and impulsive girl that
