Wert thou as young as I, Juliet thy love / An hour but married, Tybalt murderèd / Doting like me, and like me banishèd / Then mightst thou speak, then mightst thou tear thy hair. And fall upon the ground, as I do now / Taking the measure of an unmade grave.” (lll, lll, 67-74) Unable to articulate the passion he feels, the exiled lover exclaims the chaos he’s had to suffer. He views the grave as a real option to end his life and to end this anguish. Despondent over a lost love, the forlorned new husband seeks solace in
Due to the consequences of many actions, Romeo and Juliet tragically lose their lives and their love in suicide. This sad resolution may be a result of gender roles of the time. Juliet’s relationship with Capulet, the Nurse, and Romeo are all affected by Juliet’s gender role in the play. Due to the gender roles of the time period, Juliet’s relationship with her father continues to weaken because of his controlling behavior. At the start of the play, we get a look into Capulet early to show how he controls Juliet.
In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare writes of a budding love between two adolescent lovers. However, their destiny is to never come together because of the enmity among their families. They deem it impossible to survive without one another, so they rob their mortal bodies on the souls that occupy them. The tragedy of their deaths brings the two noble homes together to unify for their children. Many people conclude that Friar Lawrence or the parents are at fault but in reality Friar Lawrence just does as Romeo and Juliet ask.
Juliet is the lover of Romeo, but is from the house of Capulet which is a that time in the middle of a feud with the house of Montague( Romeo’s Family) and in the play she is brung into adulthood quickly. She helps develop the theme of gender roles of females through all the events in which she must disobey her father who was going to disown her for not wanting to marry Paris because she is secretly in love with Romeo, “CAPULET:Hang thee, young baggage, disobedient wretch!I tell thee what: get thee to church o ' Thursday,Or never after look me in the face.Speak not; reply not; do not answer me.” (3.5.166-169) in this quote from Act III Lord Capulet is throwing a huge fit because Juliet does not want to marry Paris and he is treating Juliet like
First, she married Romeo which was a big mistake. She knows well the feud happening between their families, but continues the relationship with Romeo even though it will upset her family. “ Come, come with me, and we will make short work; For, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone Till Holy Church incorporate two in one.”( Act 2. Scene 6. Lines 35-37).
Although, Shakespeare immediately spoils his readers that, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth their death bury their parents strife” (7). Due to this, we are promptly informed that deaths will occur. Do the characters have the capability to do what they wish, or simply bounds to play a part in death and desolation? As readers, we simply learn from the characters mistakes and truly take it in as if we were in the character’s shoes and “their course of love, the tidings of their death” (5.3.297). Before long, the Prince finally realizes how much it takes to have love and peace.
The deaths of Romeo and Juliet are a product of tragic flaw, family feud, and fate itself. The challenges that have been presented are to much for the young couple to bear. Although Romeo and Juliet fight for their love, they ultimately fail. The flaw of their all-consuming devotion, the bitter rivalry of their families, and the unkind work of fate all lead to Romeo and Juliet’s
Mark Overby says, “Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.” Love, a magnificent and wonderful emotion, not only includes admiration, but requires sacrifice. William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, revolves around the children of two rival families, the Montagues and the Capulets. This feud even has the citizens of the town, Verona, involved in this ancient rivalry. The children, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, fall deeply into a love that is forbidden. The young lovers are willing to do anything to be with one another; even if that means they have to sacrifice their lives for each other.
Romeo could not fight him because they were family now since they secretly got married. This caused Romeo to kill him which caused him to get banished from Verona. Romeo 's banishment caused the whole problem with Romeo and Juliet not being able to see each other which caused them to take drastic measures to see each
