On several occasions, characters in the play express their indifference to matrimony: Lane, Algernon’s servant, mentions in conversation with Algernon that his marriage was “consequence of a misunderstanding between myself and a young person”, undermining the importance of intimacy in marriage. Lady Bracknell backs up this idea in Act III, where she tells Cecily Cardew and Algernon that: “I am not in favor of long engagements. They give people the opportunity of finding out each other’s character before marriage, which I think is never advisable”, displaying the belief that one does not actually need to be acquainted with the person they are to marry. Lady Bracknell also refers to another characteristic of Victorian marriages, which was their establishment as a predestined business transaction. In Victorian society, arranged marriages were more often a rule than an exception, and children had little to no say about these matters.
Shakespeare situates this moment directly after Juliet’s wedding night , linking the idea of development from childhood to adulthood. The audience can infer that she feels apoplectic and imprisoned by her father as she says ‘Proud can I never be of what I hate’. The revelation of Juliet’s attitude toward her father would have shocked an Elizabethan audience whereas in modern times we find it normal to disagree with our parents. Shakespeare uses foreshadowing technique in the lines ‘or if you do not, make the bridal bed, in that dim monument where Tybalt dies’ which adds dramatic tension to the story by building anticipation about what might happen next. The audience can see Juliet developing in maturity as this is the first time in the play that she disobeys her parents and makes her own
At the beginning of the play, Mercutio suggests they go to the Capulet’s party to overcome Romeo’s infatuation with Rosaline, and Romeo responds with, “I’ll go along, no such sight to be shown,” (1.2.104) This proves it was his choice to go to the party that resulted in Romeo and Juliet’s meeting. If he did not go to the party, he would not have met Juliet, hence, neither of them would have died considering majority of the events in the tragedy was a result of their tryst. On top of that, when the play was approaching its conclusion, Romeo hears of Juliet’s death, buys poison from an apothecary, and says, “Come, cordial, and not poison, go with me To Juliet’s grave, for there must I use thee.” (5.1.88-89) By doing this, Romeo demonstrates free will because he chose to kill himself by drinking poison instead of moving on. If he had talked to Friar Laurence before making rash decisions, neither of them would have died owing to the fact that the plan would have been successful. To sum up, the outcome of the play was a result of free will because Romeo chose to attend the party thrown by the Capulets and kill himself when he hears of Juliet’s
In the play, The Tragedy of Romeo and juliet, by William Shakespeare, a famous poet, is a tale of a young teenage couple from two feuding families that fall in love one night and die about three days later. Some may say that the families and the prince were responsible for the tragedy, but the one who should have most of the blame is friar Lawrence. Despite his help on marrying the younger lovers, he’s to blame for his plan on preventing another marriage, his reasons to marry the two, and the consequences of what he did. Although his reason to marry Romeo and juliet was a good intention, however he knew the consequences of the marriage and was ignorant of the prince’s word. The intention was that he’ll marry the two lovers in order for the families to stop their feud and because
“The Heart wants what it wants". This quote was written by Woody Allen, the quote can relate to the situation between Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet were teenagers that had fallen in love with each other, but the only thing they had to worry about is their families didn’t get along. Juliet was supposed to get married in Paris, but Romeo saw Juliet at the Capulet Party and they both instantly fell in love. But If Romeo and Juliet never met so many things would have happened differently.
Being so, Friar Lawrence is the cause of the tragic ending in Romeo and Juliet, as he agreed to marry the two lovers without their parents permission, and devised a plan that ended with the lovers suicide. The character Friar Lawrence had an enormous role in the tragic ending of the story, as he allowed the two secret lovers from feuding families get married. Romeo and Juliet met on one fateful night at the Capulet’s party. Even though they were from opposing families, him from the Montagues and her from the Capulets, the two instantly fell in love with one another and went to Friar Laurence to get permission for the marriage. The Friar was reluctant at first but decides, “‘In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; For this alliance may happy prove To turn your households rancor to pure love’” (2.3 97-100).
The play commences with the courtship of multiple individuals. First, Shakespeare challenged the policies of the day was through examining the role of courtship using the single women of the play, Helena and Hermia. One way was through the belief that women should have the right to reject men. Hermia says: “I do entreat your grace to pardon me/I know not by what power I am made bold/Nor how it may concern my modesty In such a presence here to plead my thoughts;/But I beseech your grace that I may know/The worst that may befall me in this case/If I refuse to wed
Who is to Blame for the Death of Romeo and Juliet William Shakespeare once said “These violent delights have violent ends, And in their triump die, like fire and powder, Which, as they kiss, consume”. This quote by William Shakespeare foreshadows the tragedy of two kids who took their life in The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet are forbidden to be together since their families do not get along. Romeo went to a party he was not supposed to go to and met Juliet and they fell in love. Juliet is at the age of marriage and her parents set her up to marry a kinsmen named Paris.
Some factors contributing to this are marriage not being a prerequisite for sex as well as the inability to deal with frustrations in the relationship. According to___, “a lot of women withhold sex as a form of behavior modification or punishment when they are angry with their spouse.” In the play, Bono stated that his father moved from woman to woman (Wilson 1582). Additionally, Bono tells Troy that “if you try to juggle both of them…sooner or later you gonna drop one of them” (Wilson 1589). What Bono means by this is that if Troy continues to cheat, he is eventually going to get caught and lose Rose. Later on in the play, Troy admits to Rose that he is going to be a father.
