Juliet is so in love with Romeo that when he finds her mistakenly dead he takes a deadly potion that kills him almost instantly. Following this Juliet is so depressed and sad about this event that she takes his dagger and stabs herself with it, to join her husband in Heaven. My essay is arguing the fact that Romeo and Juliet have feelings of true love towards each other. The feelings that Romeo and Juliet had for each other were true feelings of true love because
Shakespeare’s portrayal of Juliet in this manner reverses traditional gender roles and by setting up a dramatic final scene in which Juliet makes the ultimate sacrifice for Romeo. When Juliet sees Romeo lying dead in the vault, she rushes to him, sees that he had died of poison, and says, “O churl, drunk all, and left no friendly drop/ To help me after!” (5.3.168). Without hesitation Juliet decides that life without Romeo is not worth living, unlike Romeo who shows fear when he waffles over the concept of death. Once Juliet realizes that there is no poison left for her,
The first person to die is Mercutio, who is killed in a fight with Tybalt (Act III Scene I). This is a heartbreaking loss for Romeo, who then proceeds to fight and kill Tybalt as revenge. This leads to the banishment of Romeo, another tragic incident. After Romeo is banished, Juliet and the Friar devise a plan to ensure that Juliet will not be forced to marry Paris (Act IV Scene I), the suitor who Juliet’s parents want her to marry. To take the plan into action, Juliet drinks a potion that makes her appear dead (Act IV Scene III).
The Death of Romeo and Juliet It is Friar Lawrence's fault because he gave Juliet the potion and married Romeo and Juliet. Also, he should just told Romeo that Juliet was going to take a potion that was going to make Juliet look dead so she could miss her wedding to Paris. It is Romeo’s fault because he fell in love with Juliet who is a Capulet and already is soon to be married to Paris. Romeo killed himself because he thought Juliet was dead causing Juliet to kill herself. It is Juliet’s fault because she loved Romeo back who is a Montague and left her “fiance” Paris.
Happily Ever Never Love is an intense feeling of deep affection. In the Great Gatsby, true love seems as if it is a prevalent theme. As readers take a closer look, however, we are able to uncover that all this love, these characters long for, is unrealistic and a fantasy. Throughout the book F. Scott Fitzgerald uses the relationships of Daisy, Tom, Jay, and the rest of the characters to help readers understand the significance behind what others refer to as true love. Fitzgerald sets his story in the 1920s, an era of excessive entertainment, prosperity, and greed.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence should be punished. Friar Lawrence gave Juliet the potion to fake her death. “Take thou this vial, being then in bed…” (Romeo and Juliet 4.1.96) Friar gave Juliet this potion so everyone had thought that she was dead. This caused Romeo to kill himself and leading up to Juliet then killing herself. Everything from that point on did not go well at all.
The two marry in secret and plan to live a happy life together before a deadly fight breaks out between the Montagues and the Capulets and the lovers are separated. The heartbreaking story consists of risky decisions and bad timing. Romeo’s own impulsive nature, demonstrated when he kills Juliet’s kinsman, breaks Verona’s law of banishment, and suicidal act, all contribute to the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo allows his thirst for revenge to cloud his logical reasoning when he kills Tybalt who has just murdered Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend. Mercutio defends Romeo against Tybalt’s insults with comebacks and later his sword.
Friar Laurence, proposes a dangerous plan to Juliet. Friar expresses his disapproval of the wedding plans, telling Paris that he does not know Juliet well enough to get married to her. Once alone, Juliet and the Friar talk about what can be done to save Juliet from the fate of becoming the wife of two men. He has a potion that will make her appear dead when she drinks it, and it will keep her the lifeless state for forty-two hours. Juliet excitedly approves of the plan and goes home to drink the potion.
”Where the infectious pestilence did reign, seal'd up the doors, and would not let us forth,” states Friar John (act 5 scene 2 Line 11.) This is when Friar John returned to Friar Lawrence and told him that he could not deliver the plans for Juliet to Romeo because he could not get through the gates. This portrays dramatic irony because Romeo was making irrational decisions based on an assumption we knew to be incorrect. In act 4, the literary device of suspense was used when Romeo is about to drink the poison to kill himself and Juliet can wake up any second. “Here’s to my love!
Friar Laurence, the man that married Romeo and Juliet, walks in and see the horrific action that has taken place. Friar then gets startled by a watchman in the background and flees the scene leaving Juliet alone with Romeo’s lifeless body in her arms. Juliet then realizes that the man she loves is dead and the only solution is to take her on life. Juliet takes Romeo knife and stabs herself with it after she says her body will be the knives sheath. This is fate because death was destined upon both Romeo and Juliet.
