Romeo’s parents do not bother helping him after his breakup with Rosaline, and instead send Benvolio to cheer him up, while Juliet’s father forces her to marry, when she has no interest in doing so. Both of these actions performed by the parents show how neglectful and careless they are to their own children, and how their lack of responsibility lead to a horrific
Are Romeo’s and Juliet 's death is because of their free will or of their fate? Romeo and Juliet by the famous William Shakespeare is a tragic and romantic play that teaches us about how the characters interact to one another knowing that they can 't be together. Romeo is a high social class from the Montagues family and her lovely Juliet is from the Capulet family. Since there is a hate between these families, they live in two different cities making their love much more difficult. As Romeo and Juliet meet at the beginning of the play both characters had never felt the love they felt as of that moment.
“A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, / … / The fearful passage of their death-marked love / And the continuance of their parents’ rage, / Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove.” (the prologue). The prologue of Romeo and Juliet tells us Romeo and Juliet’s fate of this untimely death has already been decided at birth.
What the two families just care about are their social identity and the name of the family, so they refuse the love affair between Romeo and Juliet because they think about how the society will view them. Although Juliet falls in love with Romeo without knowing his real identity, Juliet's love for Romeo recalls her family’s hatred for the Montague name. In this sense, Juliet's love works against her because the feud could not just die
Many of whom had nothing to do with the feud, but ended up in those situations because of the hate their parents instilled into their minds at such an early age. Of the many deaths in the play Mercutio’s was one of the most significant. His death occurred because he insisted on challenging Tybalt, who was looking for Romeo.
People are always looking for someone to blame. It is no different when they read the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. There are many differing beliefs as to who is to blame for the deaths of the ill-fated young lovers, but the truth is that it was not one single person who determined what happened to Romeo and Juliet. Fate is to blame for the deaths of the teenage couple because it predetermined their unavoidable deaths, rushed the time span of the story, and put all of the characters into countless coincidental situations. No person in the story of Romeo and Juliet can be blamed for their deaths because Fate already predetermined their unavoidable deaths.
In the beginning of the play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo predicts his own fate as his “mind misgives” (1.4 104). The two young lovers are “star-crossed lovers who take their life” because they care about each other very deeply and their love is doomed by fate as they are not allowed to be with one another due to the family feud between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s who will avert them from being with one another. This creates a barrier to their happiness because of their
Juliet loves talking to the Nurse but Lady Capulet on the other hand, just tells Juliet what to do and they never talk unless necessary. Similar to this idea, Romeo also has a deep relationship with someone who acts more like a father than Lord Montague. This fatherly figure is Friar Lawrence. Whenever something went wrong Romeo never talked to his parents about it, he immediately thought of Friar Lawrence. “Romeo, come forth; come forth, thou fearful man./
The story of Romeo and Juliet is the story of two star crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet’s love is hidden because they are forbidden to date as they are from the two opposing houses in Verona; Capulet’s and Montague’s. Names are important in this tragedy as the reason there was so much tragedy is based on the two teenagers having to hide their love from everyone and the weight that responsibility bared on them. In this play names divide characters and define people as well as they divide the city in two based on your last name.
It is obvious the intended audience are parents, teachers, students, or anyone who is interested in knowing information by numbers. In the introduction of the article, it gives many statistics which grabs the reader 's’ attention while also giving useful facts. For example, I learned that college students drinking alone causes “an estimated 1,825 student deaths, 696,000 assaults by another student who has been drinking, and 97,000 cases of sexual assault or date rape each year” (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism) and those numbers scare me but it is good to know what is happening around me. I also read that the first couple of weeks of school are the most important. Many kids drink very heavily at this time
“The blame Game” If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty. Friar laurence was responsible for marrying Romeo and Juliet. The nurse and them three was the only one’s that knew about it. If they wouldn’t have never kept the marriage a secret the prince wouldn’t have Romeo banned from the town and Romeo and Juliet could’ve lived happily ever after.
Romeo did not think of the consequences before his actions. His thoughtless behavior led to the end of his and his star-crossed lover’s life. At first, Romeo Montague was a very disheartened teenager because Rosaline, his old love, wouldn’t love him like he did. Then, he meets Juliet and suddenly is life is filled with life and passion. He loved fiercely, and went to great lengths for Juliet.
Romeo’s family isn 't really mentioned throughout the entire story, only in the beginning of Act I and the end of Act V. Montague practically only says something about how Romeo has locked himself up due to his heart being broken about Rosaline. He never really talks to Romeo about how it is just a silly crush. Beyond that, Romeo has 100% free will to do whatever he pleases, even kill Capulet’s nephew and getting banished from Verona where they live. Juliet’s parents start off the story as subtle and non hostile parents, but while progressing through the story, turn from 1-100 intensity almost immediately, when Juliet defies her father’s request to marry Paris. Juliet never told her father about marrying Romeo.
In Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, the love between Romeo and Juliet is the main feature of the play. While the love acts as the comic potential between the two characters, it is also the force that steers the star crossed lovers towards the tragic ending. One key factor that plays a role in the use love to steer the play towards tragedy is the theme of religion. Because religion plays an important role in the play by sacrilegiously using, sin as a metaphor for their first kiss, having Romeo abandon Rosaline, and Juliet for leave her fiance for Romeo, Romeo and Juliet's relationship is doomed to end in tragedy. One of the key representations of religion in Romeo and Juliet, is the character of Friar Lawrence.
