You can see that in Act 3, Romeo says, "Now, Tybalt, take the 'villain' 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. Either thou, or I, or both, must go with him (3.1. 130-134)." In this scene, Tybalt has slain Mercutio and Romeo wishes to get revenge. Romeo's uncontrollable desire for revenge leads to him killing Tybalt and effectively gets him banished from Verona.
In the Shakespearean play Romeo and Juliet, the play is mainly ran by the bad choices Romeo and Juliet make. These many hasty decisions eventually led to the death of the two star crossed lovers. Some of the decisions that will be mentioned here will be: Romeo getting involved in Mercutio and Tybalt’s “duel”, the Friar agreeing to marry Romeo and Juliet, and the two lovers rushing into marriage. To begin, one of the impetuous decisions Romeo makes: Getting involved in Mercutio and Tybalt.“Hold Tybalt! Good Mercutio!” Romeo should have just stayed out of these two “dueling”(although it wasn’t really fighting) because had he stayed out Mercutio wouldn’t have been killed and the law would have caught up with Tybalt for dueling
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.
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.
Although his heart was certainly in the right place, his decision ignored the possibility that several things could go wrong. Second, the Friar should not have given Juliet the sleeping potion which would allow her to fake her death. While his plan sounded good in theory, it also had too many variables. When Juliet came to him at the beginning of Act IV, he should
There’s something to be said about good intentions, but good intentions don’t do anything if your actions are bad. Looking at it Teiresias’s way, it would almost be better if you did it on purpose, because then you would be halfway done with his steps. All you would have to do is “repair the evil.” But it’s not like that. In the courts, motive in a murder is a big factor in deciding your sentence. If it was an accident, the punishment is better than if it was planned.
They can hold a big risk and should always be thought out carefully and rationally. If not, the individual may regret their decision. Romeo and Juliet loved each other dearly; they sacrificed relationships, comfort, and even their own lives for each other. Their sacrifices and the sacrifices of their friends and family brought them closer in the beginning, but it ultimately led to a horrific and violent end. In ordinary cases, sacrifices can change someone’s life.
Montressor’s main goal is to punish Fortunato for his words, but Montressor must get away with it. However, Montressor must
Had it not been for their naiveness and haste actions, this story could have gotten a much happier ending. This was not the case, however, and the plot of Romeo and Juliet would truly not have been the same without them. It’s fair to say that Friar Laurence played a key role in Romeo and Juliet’s demise. He cautioned Romeo as to not be too impatient with his decisions, “Wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast”- (Act 2, Scene 3, Line 48) but demonstrated to be just as
A quote I have that goes with Superego is when King Claudius says “Let’s further think of this,/Weigh what convenience both of time and means/May fit us to our shape. If this should fail,/And that our drift look through our bad performance”(author). This relates to Superego because King Claudius is thinking first and he wants to take his time not make the kill suspicious. This is how King Claudius corresponds to the three parts in
Sometimes it is best to understand the law first before obeying it. When one thinks a law is unjust, they will go out of their way to go against it and do something about it. At a certain point, one doesn’t have to act accordingly to what they don’t believe in, but they can’t do whatever pleases them. There has been many controversies involving the act of non violence civil disobedience. Although most feel like breaking an unjust law might be the best solution to what they think is right, in reality, I agree to the fact that people are afraid to face the consequences that are given after their actions.
It might have been fun to watch the two men plan their duel only for the discovery of the oil beneath Mulch to interrupt their plan or for Ben to stop them perhaps revealing another twist. It’s a creative choice, but it doesn’t feel fully satisfying given how much the audience cares about these characters. The script is professionally presented, although occasionally there are some formatting flaws regarding capitalizing names etc. On page 41 a typo is noted: it should be “by yourself” vs.
That just shows how fast Romeo’s feelings can change and how he cannot decipher the difference between love and lust. There are also a lot of people who believe that Romeo’s love for Juliet is sincere. But in this case, there is too much evidence that prove that Romeo’s love for Juliet is not true love. His attraction is more physical than emotional. And because Romeo and Juliet got married the same day they met, his love for Juliet was like an obsession.
So, it is a good idea to let him be my friend because applying the rules, it say yes because he will stopped bullying me. This is what I think this means and what it is for. What I think this means if a way you can put your dilemmas into the test, seeing which way is the good way. For example, if the way we chose if not the best way to go or the truth, we should not take the way as it may give us a hard time. Also, if we want friends, we may want to go for what everyone expect us to do, even if it is bad, this test will help us not do it because it is not beneficial to everyone.
