The Destiny of Romeo “As chance would have it, these forces combine to unleash the irascible passions that destroy Mercutio, Tybalt, Paris, and eventually Romeo and Juliet themselves (Andrews)”. The untamable passions of Romeo and Juliet leads to a problematic path which is destined to affect not just the star-crossed lovers, but everyone around them.

How Juliet’s language shows her love for Romeo The 1694 play Romeo and Juliet introduced to the world the love story of two of litterature’s most prominent historical star crossed lovers. The two characters in question are Romeo and Juliet, whose love overthrows the balance of their world. Before meeting Romeo in Act 1, scene 5, Juliet appears to be an intelligent child, mature beyond her years and devoted to her family. This situation is completely overturned once Romeo, her first true love, enters the seemingly perfect picture that is her life. Shakespeare communicates the love that Juliet possesses for Romeo wonderfully with the use of distinct language techniques.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, two families have an ancient, ongoing feud. One night at a party, two young lovers fall in love not knowing they were sworn enemies. Because of their love, Romeo wouldn’t fight Juliet’s cousin Tybalt. Tybalt said, “Thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here/ Shalt with him hence,” to which Romeo responds, “This shall determine that” (3. 1).

Although ultimately leading to their death, the prevailing love between Romeo and Juliet is the catalyst that mends their family’s feud. The powerful ending in this play that Shakespeare creates aligns with Aristotle’s definition of tragedy by “effecting the proper purgation of these emotions [catharsis]" such as pity and fear. The first time we experience fear is when Juliet and Romeo realize they are enemies and we fear the repercussions of this relationship. This is specifically a formidable problem because their families are ancient enemies. At the Capulet party, when Romeo is found out to be a Montague, Tybalt yells, “Now, by the stock and honor of my kin,/To strike him dead I hold it not a sin” (Tybalt 1.5.66-67).
However, Mercutio could not bear to stand down without a fight, his actions later on ended his life. Romeo was enraged with the death of his best friend and said, “Now, Tybalt, take thee “villain” back again that late thou gavest me, for Mercutio’s soul is but a little way above our heads, staying for thine to keep him company: either thou or I, or both must go with him.” (3.1.121-125) This line and his rage is what caused Romeo to kill Tybalt. The tragic events caused Mercutio (Montague) and Tybalt (Capulet) to lose their lives. The death of the two love ones and friends of Romeo and Juliet provided a balance of characters between the two

Its seems she hangs upon the cheek of night as a rich jewel in an Ethiop’s ear.’’(1.5.42-44).
