Tybalt killed Mercutio even after Romeo warned him to cease fighting which led to Romeo’s banishment. According to the text, Romeo states, “The prince expressly hath forbid this bandying in Verona streets. Hold, Tybalt! Good Mercutio! Romeo attempts to beat down their rapiers.
Tybalt takes offense to Romeo's presence at the Capulet's party and challenges him to a fight, despite attempts by Mercutio to claim the situation. This leads to Mercutio’s death. “Alive in triumph, and Mercutio slain! Away to heaven, respective lenity, And fire-eyed fury be my conduct now!” (3.3.118-120).
At the Capulets party, Tybalt sees Romeo enter and knows that he was never invited to the party, so he wants to attack him for sneaking in but displays devotion by following Capulets order. By leaving Romeo alone, Tybalt shows his restrain from quarrelling Romeo and obeys his uncle’s orders. After banter between Tybalt and Mercutio, Tybalt slays Mercutio, and this helps him exhibit his dependable qualities to his family and himself. Telling Mercutio that he will battle for his life, Tybalt says, “I am for you” (3.1.84). Tybalt encounters a near death experience but he kills Mercutio first, demonstrating that he has a will to hurt someone and puts his own life on the line for others.
Mercutio is one of the main and most interesting characters in Romeo and Juliet. There are three word that I think best describe Mercutio, those words are kind, smart, and brave. This is why those words describe him. The first word I would use to describe Mercutio is smart.
Romeo tells Tybalt, “I do protest I never injur’d thee, but love thee better than thou canst devise” (162). Romeo tells Tybalt he loves him but cannot tell him the reason why, the reason being they are technically family now through his marriage to Juliet. Mercutio grows frustrated because Tybalt calls Romeo a villain, Mercutio believes Tybalt should not get away with being so insulting. Romeo reacts to being called a villain by saying “I love you so I don’t care that you called me a bad name. But you clearly don’t know me very well, goodbye!”
Some people fight for honor, and some fight for revenge, or to avenge their friends or loved ones. Some fight with words and wisdom, while others choses to use physical force, even by taking the opponent’s life to fulfill their vengeance. One of the First lives lost in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, triggers the protagonists, Romeo, to avenge his friend, Mercutio. Romeo avenges his friend’s life, with the his own life and the trust from his wife, Juliet, at stake. When Romeo is mocked by the antagonist, Tybalt, a Capulet, Romeo decides to withdraw from the fight, then, his friend Mercutio decides to fight for him to protect his honor on Act three scene three.
He wants to fight, but Romeo is not budging, for he does not want to harm Juliet’s cousin. So instead of Romeo fighting Tybalt, Mercutio fights Tybalt because Romeo will not fight for himself. Romeo steps between them and tries to stop the duel, but Tybalt manages to stab Mercutio underneath Romeo’s
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. As Romeo attempts to intervene, Mercutio is stabbed by Tybalt and Romeo is enraged. Once he finds out from Benvolio that the wound had killed him, Romeo,”Who had but newly entertained revenge,” (III.i.173), kills Tybalt and flees the scene. Romeo declined to
How Romeo is impatient Romeo was many different types of emotions such as bipolar or depressed but to me, I think that Romeo was mostly impatient in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. The meaning of inpatient is restlessly eager. Throughout the entire story Romeo was showing signs of impatience and did not think about what he was going to do next. There were many scenes where Romeo was being impatient and the first time was when he decided to go off and marry Juliet. They rushed into the marriage which caused friction in the households.
Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel and he declines the challenge and insists that he won’t fight Tybalt. Mercutio is angered by Romeo’s “cowardice” and takes on Tybalt himself. Romeo wants Mercutio to stop fighting Tybalt so he decides that it’d be a good idea to block his arm in mid combat and Tybalt stabs Mercutio from under Romeo’s arm and Mercutio falls dead after rambling about plagues and a pun or two. Romeo doesn’t realize that it is his own fault that Mercutio died after Mercutio even blamed his wound on him. Romeo lets his emotions decide his actions and becomes enraged and ignores that Tybalt is now his family and fails to see that he was the reason Mercutio was killed.
Free will can cause teens to make both superior and poor decisions, but with factoring in other people’s actions to the situation it can lead to an unintended ending such as death. William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, written in 1597, is about two young “star-crossed lovers” who fall in love and are kept apart by their feuding families. After facing many difficulties they decide to kill themselves so they can be together. According to The Choice is Yours: The Fate of Free Will by Marcelo Gleiser, young teens’ free will can drive them to do unexpected things that affect both themselves, their families, and others around them. Some of Romeo and Juliet’s decisions are based on freedom of choice.
This meant that Juliet could not admit she was already married to Romeo her “enemy”. “He’s alive and victorious, and Mercutio’s dead . Enough time with mercy and consideration”act 3 scene 1 line 1. This shows that Tybalt had killed Mercutio because Mercutio hung with Romeo and hated Montagues. This lead to the death of Mercutio.
“Gentle Mercutio, put thy rapier up” (Shakespeare 3. 1. 87). After Mercutio is wounded and gets news of his death, Romeo is motivated to fight. “Now, Tybalt, take the “villain”back again…either thou or I, or both, must go with [Mercutio] (Shakespeare 3. 1. 132-7). Romeo immediately tells Tybalt he will fight him and that he himself, Tybalt, or the both of them will die.
In William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, ACT 3, scene 1 is a crucial in creating the circumstances that lead to the tragedy of the play. Shakespeare incorporates tragedy into Romeo and Juliet with the use of plot, language devices and aesthetic features. With these devices Shakespeare integrates poetic dialogue, forbidden love and devastating tragedy into the script of the play. In ACT 3, scene 1, Tybalt kills Mercutio and is killed by Romeo who is then banished by the prince, these unfortunate events contribute to the tragedy of the play. The scene begins with Benvolio and Mercutio hanging out, mocking each other and insulting the Capulets.
