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.
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.
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”).
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.
In Act two, Romeo is standing hidden beneath Juliet while she is on the balcony. 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
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. Since Romeo has been banished Juliet fakes her death so she can run away with Romeo. All these examples of dramatic irony heightens the tragedy, and keeps the reader on
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. Not only do the conflicts affect the characters, but also the play. The parents have no idea
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. The set design definitely added to the theme. Daisy and Violet were apart of the side show
The Friar putting the responsibility of delivering the letter off on someone else influenced the theme because it ended up causing both Romeo and Juliet to commit suicide. 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.
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.
“Francis Forever” by Mitski The song that fits best with Romeo’s entry in act 1 scene 1 is “Francis Forever” by Mitski. Similar to Romeo’s anguish over Rosaline’s rejection to his affections, the song is about not being seen by the one you love most. According to Benvolio, Romeo walks underneath a sycamore grove before dawn in his sorrow, much like how the song states, “On sunny days, I go out walking /
