Bad decisions are something all teens make and they are usually reversible, but the decisions Romeo made were irreversible. In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet , Romeo made bad decisions that affected the whole story. If Romeo had not went to the party, some of the problems that happened, could have been easily avoided. For example, If Romeo just stayed away from the party, Tybalt would not have gotten angry at Romeo and he would not have wanted to kill him. Another reason is that Romeo and Juliet would not have even met if he didn't go to the party.
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.
When Romeo came in to ask Friar to marry him the Friar says that Romeo saw him previously saying that he couldn’t live without Rosaline. Then he instantly thinks that marrying a Montague to a Capulet would end the feud. This decision affects most of the outcome in this play. “To turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” Now the feuding families eventually stopped but only because Romeo and Juliet died. This was mainly because of the Friar.
How could one tiny change of decision drastically change the whole future outcome of an event? How could something so little like a butterfly flap its wings just a little bit faster and cause a tornado the next day? This phenomenon is something known as the butterfly effect, in which a small change in a system could alter the future events of one's life. Maybe if Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet had changed some of his many impulsive decisions, the two star crossed lovers would still be alive. People know Benvolio as the beloved cousin, and friend of Romeo, but could he really be a “friend,” of Romeo when he caused him and his lover juliet to kill themselves?
1a. The author’s first impressions of Globe Theater when he first arrives is negative which proves how bare the theater is in Shakespeare 's time, but he feels amazement about what this theater had to offer for Shakespeare. Globe Theater is very “dingy and unattractive” because it does not look like the glorious theaters that society uses today (“The Theater”). The large fields that are near the theater plays a huge contrast to anyone who sees it; Globe Theater negatively stands out because of its tall structure that is leaning. However, he does notice the saviness of having a “billboard, newspaper notice, and advertisement” combine into one waving flag (“The Theater”).
What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. (2.2.4-5) This is one of the best examples of the use of light and dark imagery, as Shakespeare creates a visual picture to compare Juliet’s beauty to the light of the sun, but it also symbolizes the lover’s plight to remain together. Though they love each other so deeply, Juliet is the sun while Romeo is the moon; their fate enables them to be together briefly just as the celestial objects are only to meet at dawn and dusk successfully portraying their love. Romeo continues the inference of Juliet’s eyes to that of the light and beauty of the brightest of stars, when he states, "Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven, Having some business, do entreat her eyes To twinkle in their spheres till they
He uses juxtaposition when he says, “Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon” (2.2.4). Romeo’s use of juxtaposition shows how he wants to be in love with Juliet, but he is still in love with Rosaline. This characterizes Romeo as indecisive. He uses a paradox when he says, “She speaks, yet she says nothing”(2.2.12). The paradox shows that Juliet is talking to herself but he cannot hear her.
She has no idea that Romeo is there, Romeo reveals that he loves her even though she can’t hear him "But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?/“It is the east, and Juliet is the sun./Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,/Who is already sick and pale with grief,/That
As part of Friar Lawrence’s plan, he sent Friar John to tell Romeo about the plan, but word got to Romeo about Juliet’s death before Friar John could tell Romeo about the plan. As it is made obvious, everyone thinks that Juliet is actually dead except for Friar Lawrence, Friar John, and Juliet. Obviously, William Shakespeare uses dramatic irony such as Romeo and Juliet feuding families, Juliet’s arranged marriage to Paris, and Juliet’s death to keeps reader on edge and wanting to read more. Finding out that Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet shows there is going to be trouble throughout the play. When Juliet is crying over Romeo's banishment, her father tells her to marry Paris to make her happy again.
It 's at the party that Juliet meets Romeo and falls for him at first sight. Everything about marriage with Paris has changed. It states “If that thy bent of love be honorable, thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow… (2.2.157). Juliet wants to marry Romeo which means she will have to defy her parents and keep her marriage a secret. This will cause problems with her parents in the long run.
It was dark in the theatre and included colors of pink, red, and purple to capture the mood of “love’. These elements of the set design added to the production and made it feel like they were realistically going through a tunnel. At the beginning and the ending of the production, these were the scenes that made the audience feel as if they were in the show and watching it themselves. The “freaks” were in their cages or in the aisle ways. The round lights that hung from the ceiling in the theatre gave the feel of actually seeing a freak show.
This relates back to the previous key passage, since that turning point changed for the rest of the story, where this change is noticable in this passage. It would also make sense because he ignored “the seashell roar and the aurora borealis”. Sometimes, however,
Had he brought the letter to Romeo himself Romeo would have been at the tomb when Juliet woke up and they would have run away to Mantua together. Instead, Romeo got to the tomb thinking that Juliet was dead and killed himself. When Juliet awoke she also killed herself, seeing that Romeo was dead. They did end up being together, but in death. Their destiny was still fulfilled, just not the way it should have been.
William Shakespeare 's Romeo And Juliet has a very dark ending that may not leave some people satisfied. Some things that could 've been changed to make the play have a much happier and more satisfying ending would be if Tybalt and Mercutio never fought, if Romeo would have received the letter from Friar John, and if Friar Laurence would have never agreed to we’d Romeo and Juliet. These three things could change the play in many different ways. In act 3 Tybalt and Mercutio quarrel because of Mercutio constantly taunting Tybalt “Good king of cats, nothing but one of your nine lives.” (1546) Until he has had enough, eventually ending with Mercutio getting stabbed by Tybalt. When Mercutio is stabbed everyone thinks he is just joking “Ay, ay, a scratch, a scratch.” (1565) Until he drops dead.
