Oh, good, a knife! My body will be your sheath, Rust inside my body and let me die.”This proves that since Romeo killed himself for her she wants to kill herself with his dagger. Since they’re killing themselves for each other, they have feelings of true, passionate, and strong love for each other. In conclusion, Romeo and Juliet killed themselves for each other because it was true love. Another reason that the feelings that Romeo and Juliet had for each other were feelings of true love is They got married urgently..
There are a multitude of themes that can be identified in William Shakespeare’s iconic play , although one that trumps them all is two powerful emotions; love & hate. The story of Romeo & Juliet begins with Romeo, who has travelled to a party hoping to see his crush Rosaline but instead, he meets the girl Juliet and falls in love with her immediately. She loves him in turn, but when they realise that they are born from two families who hate each other, they decide to be private and marry in secret. Then, Juliet’s cousin Tybalt kills a friend of Romeo’s, which provokes Romeo to kill Tybalt, therefore banishing Romeo from the city. Juliet weeps for days, telling her parents she is weeping for Tybalt.
This leads to Romeo thinking about killing himself. As Romeo is saying goodbye to Juliet, his sorrows overtake him, and his body is covered with sadness and grief for his fallen wife. This is shown when Romeo says, “ And, lips, O, you the doors of breath, seal with an righteous kiss, a dateless bargain to engrossing death” (5.3 113-115). This means that Romeo is willing to take his life because of the fact that Juliet won’t be apart of it. Ultimately, as Romeo realizes Juliet is dead, he decides that life is not worth living without his true love and he kills
Friar Lawrence told Friar John to send the letter again but Lawrence is staying at the grave of Juliet. “ I 'll keep her at my cell till Romeo come.”(5.2 28-28) The Friar has to go to the tomb before Romeo because he isn 't in good spirits. When Friar Lawrence gets to the Capulet monument he sees Romeo dead and Juliet wake up and he tells Juliet to leave because the watchmen are on the way and all his plans failed. Friar old Juliet that “ I will dispose of thee among a sisterhood of holy nuns.”(5.3 156-157) Juliet tricked the Friar and as he waited upstairs Juliet killed herself. The watchmen capture Friar on his escape and take him to the prince by the dead bodies of Romeo and Juliet.
In fact, in the prologue it says “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life;” the phrase star-crossed means full of bad luck. So this play is meant to have bad luck (or bad decisions?). When Romeo and Juliet decide to get married or Juliet decides to fake her death and not tell Romeo. Those decisions were foolish and self-centered decisions. Even Romeo stabbing himself after he finds Juliet was a rash decision.
Juliet warned Romeo, “If they see thee, they will murder thee.”(II.ii.70) Romeo proceeded to say, “Alack, there lies more peril in thine eye/ Than twenty of their swords! Look thou but sweet. /and I am proof against their enmity.” (II.ii.71-73) Here Juliet was afraid for her loves life but Romeo said it was worth the risk to die just to be with her for a moment. Romeo’s love was greater than their families hate. For example, Juliet’s cousin Tybalt tried to fight and kill Romeo.
Another example, of violence turning into love is when the prince, prince of Verona, tells the Montagues and Capulets that the heavens decided to punish them, due to the death of Romeo and Juliet. The prince states, “ That heavens finds means to kill your joy with love” (V.iii.304). This shows that even the prince believes that the loss of both Romeo and Juliet will bring love into the feuding families hearts. This proves that violence can put an
When Romeo first heard news of Juliet’s “death” he was upset with the world for taking his true love away from him too soon “Then I defy you, stars” (V.i.24). In those words, Romeo is screaming at the world for taking his will to live, as shortly after he went to get fatal poisoning so he could join his fair Juliet. Though the tragedy of their love doesn’t stop there as the expiry ending has just began with that phrase “the yoke of inauspicious stars from this world-wearied flesh” (V.iii.120-121). These are Romeos last word as he bestows a kiss onto Juliet’s lips before the poison takes him. With Romeo’s death occurring minutes before Juliet’s awakening she was torn when she awoke to find him “O happy dagger, this is thy sheath, there rust and let me die.” (V.iii.182-183).
The plan went wrong and Romeo thought Juliet was really dead, so he killed himself because he loved Juliet. After Juliet saw that Romeo was dead, she killed herself to be with Romeo. The Friar is responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death because he is the one who got them married. In act 4 scene 6, Friar says “Holy church
For example in the conflict of Romeo and Juliet revenge is shown by Romeo and leads to discomfort for himself. “Thou,wretched boy, that didst consort him here, shalt with him hence,” (Tybalt Act 3,Scene 1,Line 127) “This shall determine that”(Romeo Act 3,Scene 1, Line 129) These two quotes from Romeo and Juliet show how Romeo seeks revenge on Tybalt for Mercutio’s death. This then hurts the innocent because, people from Romeo’s family are sad that he is banished and the Capulets are sad because Tybalt is deceased. In the movie West Side Story,Anita goes to the restaurant to find Tony and give him news but, the Sharks are at the restaurant and are violent. In this
Tybalt sent a letter to Romeo saying that there is going to be a battle between the two, but the letter never gets to Romeo. Mercutio is the one who gets the letter and does not tell Romeo. When Tybalt comes to battle Romeo, Mercutio tries to distract Tybalt, so he will not try to fight Romeo, and he gets killed. Romeo is angry with Tybalt, because of what he did to Mercutio, and ends up killing Tybalt. He then felt regret right after he did this, because they are now related through marriage.
Romeo came shortly after and Tybalt challenged him, “Romeo, the love i bear thee can afford no better term than this; thou art a villian .” Romeo refused to fight, seeing how he just married his cousin juliet and was now family. He tried to keep the peace but Tybalt came looking for a fight and wasn’t leaving without one. Once Mercutio realized Romeo wasn’t going to fight he jumped in. Tybalt had killed Mercutio while Romeo was trying to break it up. Romeo had acted in rage, furious for what Tybalt had done.
Benvolio says this to Romeo, because Tybalt has just been killed because he killed Mercutio. “Romeo, away, be gone! / The citizens are up and Tybalt slain.”(3.1.130-131) This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents don’t know that they are married. So to try and cheer up their daughter they try and marry her to another man to get her spirits up. This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents do not know that they are married.
Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her. The friar 's inability to succesfully delivering the letter to Romeo stating that Juliet was alive was a gap that caused romeo to make his harsh decision, but it was too late once he got to the tomb. Upon killing Paris and himself with the poison, Romeo fell beside Juliet, whom stabbed herself once she awoke upon seeing Romeo dead before her eyes. Had Romeo and Juliet respected their families wishes, had they not gone into secrecy, had their relatives stayed out of their love, they wouldnt have blindly caused
