When Tybalt comes looking for Romeo, he runs into Mercutio. Because of his big mouth, Mercutio gets himself killed. Romeo does not retaliate to Tybalt’s taunting, though when he identifies Mercutio’s death, Romeo is eager to find Mercutio some company, “Alive in triumph, and Mercutio slain? / Away to heaven respective lenity / And fire-eyed fury be my conduct now! / Now, Tybalt, take the ‘villian’ 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.
Also, if Romeo never got in between two people fighting with swords then Mercutio would of never been stabbed. Tybalt was most likely aiming to stab Romeo when he got in between the fight since he wanted revenge. But, he accidently stabbed Mercutio instead. In the movie portrayal done by Zeffirelli, Tybalt looked like he could not believe that he actually stabbed Mercutio and almost looked like he felt guilty for what has happened since he did not intend to stab Mercutio at all. Mercutio himself even asked “Why the dev’l came you between us?/I was hurt under your arm” (3.1.93-94).
Brutus’ emotional wound ultimately deals with his internal conflict of the decision to kill Caesar in order to better Rome. In addition, he deals with such difficulty over the decision since his reasoning to kill Caesar does not come out of hatred or jealousy, but due to his fear of life under Caesar’s rule. In Act I, scene ii, lines 39-40, Brutus says, “Merely upon myself. Vexéd I am / Of late passions of some difference” (Shakespeare 848). This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him.
Instead of being grateful that the Prince spared his life, he expresses that life would be absolutely horrid being away from Juliet. In a fit of rage and sorrow, Romeo exclaims “Thou cut’st my head off with a golden ax” to express his opinion on his banishment (III.iii.22). By saying that having his head chopped off would be easier to cope with than being away from Juliet truly shows that he exaggerates quite a bit. Being beheaded probably would hurt much more than moving a city over. As being beheaded results in death, banishment just means that he has to move and he will still live.
He did not stop to think for one second about the possible outcomes and only focused on how much he claimed to love her after one day. Not only that, but the scene where Tybalt kills Mercutio is prime evidence of Romeo’s feelings controlling him. In this scene, Tybalt had originally challenged Romeo to a duel and Romeo declines. Even so, Mercutio and Tybalt engage in a duel and Mercutio dies. When Romeo hears of this he exclaims “Alive in triumph—and Mercutio slain!
Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore. This could relate to our society now days with what our thoughts are with situations and decisions being morally right or wrong. People have different a different view and perspective on certain things but Montag’s view on this situation was that he needed to kill Beatty for many different
This is important because Shakespeare is again foreshadowing how Romeo is destined to die, and he can’t change it. Shakespeare shows that destiny rules all is after Romeo kills Tybalt, when he curses his bad luck. He is distraught, and decides that something bad is destined to happen to him. In the Zefferelli version, there is a scene immediately after Romeo realizes he has killed
Tybalt then died in the play. If Tybalt never died then things would 've been much better. When Tybalt wanted to fight Romeo because Tybalt saw Him in the party Romeo said no so Mercutio stepped in. Mercutio died and made Romeo mad. Romeo then kills Tybalt.
In Friar Laurence’s cell Romeo and the friar discuss their next steps after Romeo just finished slaying Tybalt and will be be banished from the walls of Verona. Romeo displays the theme through his cries, threatening suicide as he will never see his beloved Juliet. This scene correlates to the theme as Romeo is the reason he is being banished. And how if Romeo headed the Prince’s warning he would not have been in the situation. Without moderation negative consequences will happen as shown ever so prominently with two men dead and one banished.
When Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo accepts that Mercutio is dead and in the heavens but then he goes against the gods and kills Tybalt as well, “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him” this is one of the greatest foreshadows of the ending because Romeo accepts the heavens in part but also denies them a little (III.I. 134). Another example of this is when Juliet is learning of Romeo’s exile. She knows there is nothing she can do about it except kill herself and she alludes to doing exactly that in the last scene, “And that bare vowel “I” shall poison more” she instantly realizes she cannot live without Romeo and she is prepared to do anything she needs to in order to be with him, even though she accepts that this is what the gods had set forth for her
