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.
In the play Romeo and Juliet, the young lovers are faced with various obstacles regarding distance, people, and death that prevent them from having an easy relationship. When Romeo is banished from Verona after killing Tybalt, the lovers have to face distance. Challenged with the feud of the Capulets and Montagues, Romeo and Juliet were facing an alternative for seeing each other, which was already difficult as it was. Just married, the two have been desperate to see each other but remained unsuccessful because this distance leads to their death. There is no doubt that in every relationship others get involved, but for Romeo and Juliet, this was specifically the case, where they were often people interfering with their love.
Romeo and Juliet, a play, a tale of two, sane, mundane lovers, and of course their wonderful in-laws, yes? No for what would such a story be without any drama? The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, by famed Renaissance playwright William Shakespeare, lacks such content and carries quite the opposite. These two lovers through a lack of communication and short-sighted choices dig themselves and their relatives down the rabbit hole to the extent of their deaths. However, it is the impulsivity of Lord Capulet and his daughter Juliet throughout the play that creates troubling situations for these young adults, resulting in the tragedy of young people being forced to make adult decisions.
Juliet is the lover of Romeo, but is from the house of Capulet which is a that time in the middle of a feud with the house of Montague( Romeo’s Family) and in the play she is brung into adulthood quickly. She helps develop the theme of gender roles of females through all the events in which she must disobey her father who was going to disown her for not wanting to marry Paris because she is secretly in love with Romeo, “CAPULET:Hang thee, young baggage, disobedient wretch!I tell thee what: get thee to church o ' Thursday,Or never after look me in the face.Speak not; reply not; do not answer me.” (3.5.166-169) in this quote from Act III Lord Capulet is throwing a huge fit because Juliet does not want to marry Paris and he is treating Juliet like
(Shakespeare 2.2.50) From the quote, you can see that the decision of Romeo to go after Juliet after the dance helps them get closer to the tragic end. This is not the only careless decision from continuing to pursue each other. Romeo and Juliet start to make it a pattern of making poor decisions, like them waiting to be married. Juliet is speaking to Romeo about, “Thy purpose marriage” while Juliet is on her balcony and Romeo is below. (Shakespeare 2.2.144) The quote shown helps it to be seen that Romeo and Juliet going after each other is causing them to make not good decisions.
Many people conclude that Friar Lawrence or the parents are at fault but in reality Friar Lawrence just does as Romeo and Juliet ask. The parents are clueless about the fact that their daughter was in love. Romeo and Juliet are responsible for their death because they both had free will and could have chosen their decisions differently. If you
By going from lust to love, Romeo and Juliet’s true love conveys Shakespeare’s message that love is stronger than hate. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s true love overcomes their families’ dislike for one another. The Montagues and Capulets, Romeo and Juliet’s families, have had an ongoing dispute that cannot be resolved. However, in certain situations, Romeo and Juliet had to look past this. In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare writes, “But wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin?
Mark Overby says, “Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.” Love, a magnificent and wonderful emotion, not only includes admiration, but requires sacrifice. William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, revolves around the children of two rival families, the Montagues and the Capulets. This feud even has the citizens of the town, Verona, involved in this ancient rivalry. The children, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, fall deeply into a love that is forbidden. The young lovers are willing to do anything to be with one another; even if that means they have to sacrifice their lives for each other.
Everyone in the literary world (and countless others) is familiar with the tragedy of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet: a tale of two star-crossed lovers whose love is doomed by fate. Shakespeare's story is one of love, honour and romance, but he adds a more dramatic element to the play through specific characters, such as the nurse and Mercutio. The play is set in Verona, Italy with the story built around the feud between two of the great families, the Montagues and the Capulets. The cause of this enmity between these two powerful families is not explained in the play, but it is made clear that this rift runs deep and cannot and will not be fixed. Feuds between important families was normal in Renaissance Italy but the fighting get so bad that the Prince of Verona threatens the heads of both the families with death, if the problems do not stop.
Lear believes that his daughter does not care for him and so takes away her inheritance, while Claudio believes that his betrothed has been unfaithful and so shames her on their wedding day. The final similarity is Shakespeare’s use of ‘funny characters,’ those whose value seems to be nothing more than to provide the audience, usually the groundlings, with same base form of amusement. Lear has his jester, and the maid Margaret plays the part in Much Ado. However, often these characters will be given deeply philosophical lines and essential parts in the furthering of the plot, which go unseen by the average, non-academic viewer. “While we might think little of the buffoonery of a Nick Bottom or the witticisms of a Feste, Shakespeare, his contemporaries in the early modern professional theatre and especially his audiences, valued clowning highly – and scrutinised it carefully in its
In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet Friar Laurence is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet for several reasons. First of all Friar Laurence marries Romeo and Juliet in hopes it would bring their families together and end the generations-long feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. Friar Laurence then decided to keep the marriage secret which goes against the reason he married them in the first place. By keeping the marriage the a secret the feud continued and led the fight between Romeo and Tybalt. This then led to Romeo 's banishment after the death Tybalt .
From a young age, both individuals are cultivated into acting a certain way to fit their status in both society and their families. Romeo is taught to be masculine and noble in order to become a respected member of society and Juliet is instructed to be docile and dutiful so she can easily be married off. When the lovers try to go against those beliefs, they are immediately shaken down by the recoil of those around them who are still influenced by those beliefs. Romeo loses a friend when he tries to refuse to duel with Tybalt, which also leads to him being banished to Mantua by the Prince. Juliet tries question the need for her sudden marriage to Paris, and she is immediately abandoned by her family, including the Nurse for being disloyal.
