The fight between Mercutio and Tybalt in Act 3 Scene 1 validate the fierce rivalry even after a few snarky comments. Romeo wants to keep the peace as he is now blood-related to Tybalt. However, Romeo is enraged by the death of his good friend, Mercutio, which results in the death of Tybalt. He thought this would be right because he loved Mercutio very strongly thinking of “an eye for an eye” concept. Romeo expresses this concept in Act 3 Scene 1 when he says, “And fire-eyed fury be my conduct now!
Romeo’s first sighting of Juliet is linked to Tybalt realizing Romeo, a Montague, is at the Capulet party. Tybalt is outraged that a Montague should dare gatecrash the party and believes it would not be a sin to “strike him dead” (1.4.172). It is apparent love cannot escape the society and social conventions surrounding it. Tybalt recognizing Romeo as a Montague sparks the rising action in the dramatic structure of the play. Tybalt is adamant that Romeo be punished for trespassing and will not “endure him” (1.4.189).
Although time in his profession undoubtedly helped him learn how to plan and make good decisions, Friar Lawrence’s personality also contributes to these skills.. Since Romeo knows Friar Lawrence’s personality and how the friar is better equipped to make decisions, Romeo often goes to him for help. An example of this is when Romeo goes to Friar Lawrence to ask him about Juliet. Because Romeo goes to Friar Lawrence for help with decision making, Romeo
Shakespeare uses the conflict type man vs self as Romeo now struggles with himself. He is now related to Tybalt through his marriage with Juliet but Tybalt has killed Mercutio a good friend. Tybalt returns and Romeo becomes angry and is enraged by Mercutio’s death so he fights with Tybalt. “That late thou gavest me, for Mercutio’s soul. Is but a little way above our heads, staying for thine to keep him company.
Whether the Friar realizes it or not, he has just done something terrible that only strengthens the bond of these two lovers. This leads to several deaths along the way. This bond between Romeo and Juliet, fortified by Friar Lawrence and his hubris, causes a serious issue when Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, challenges Romeo to a duel. Romeo refuses to fight as they are now family by marriage and says, “… But love thee better than thou
In the original play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two star-crossed lovers find themselves racing against death in the dangerous game of love with the aid of a corrupted Friar. The prize of endless bliss and passion would have been bestowed upon the two if they were not so reactive towards the events in the plot. The tragic flaw of impetuosity is depicted through the entire play through the actions and words of Friar Lawrence, Juliet and Romeo. The first time the reader gets a glimpse of Romeo’s impetuosity is in Scene V, Act I, where he is seen admiring Juliet from afar. In Scene I of Act I, Romeo is constantly moping about his failed romantic dream, Rosalind, but his emotions seem to take a rather sudden turn upon the appearance of Juliet.
Someone once said, “Life is all about risks and it requires you to jump. Don’t be a person who looks back and wonders what they could have had.” This quote means so much in the story of Romeo and Juliet and of the present day. The author seems to be saying that opportunities come, but they do not last for long and someday, regret will come. Romeo and Juliet did take a big risk for their love by marrying in secret and dying for their love. With this quote, the teenage brain makes choices with consequences, look for new sensations, and seek out social and emotional information.
The first poor plan that the Friar partook in was marrying Romeo and Juliet. If he did not marry them, then all the tragedies could have been avoided. Marriage creates a strong bond between two people that is almost unbreakable. The second fault that he made was when he created the risky plan to fake Juliet’s death. This strategy would have let Romeo come and sweep her out of death and take them into a new life together.
While Friar says and hints at many things about Romeo and Juliet’s love, a key phrase he says is, “These violent delights have violent ends/And in their triumph die, like fire and powder”(Shakespeare 2.6.9-10). An atmosphere that is seen throughout the play is how rushed and frantic Romeo and Juliet’s relationship seems to be. As Friar is validating their marriage, Romeo
The Friar is a big part about miscommunication in this play and this is a big part of it, he is planning on still marrying Paris and Juliet because he ever got permission to marry Romeo and to Juliet, causing him either to get in trouble or continue to lie. It gets to the point where he gives Juliet a potion to make her sleep and disappear so he never gets
Romeo and Juliet is a story that everyone knows even if they haven 't read it. In Act 3 even more conflict added and it starts right in Scene 1 with Mercutio and Tybalt get into a major fight . In this Scene, Mercutio and Tybalt get carried away and create bigger problems by killing Mercutio. I think Tybalt is an important character in this Scene because he definitely doesn 't mean to kill Mercutio, but Romeo completely misunderstands. At the beginning of the scene Tybalt wants to fight Romeo because he wanted to kick Romeo out of the Capulet party, but Lord Capulet says “No, let him stay.”.
