Both romeo and juliet believed that they could not live without one another so when romeo mistakenly thought juliet died, he killed himself which led to the death of juliet. Throughout the story, the recurring problem of the rising tensions between the two families always makes things harder and harder for romeo and juliet. Both romeo and juliet hate being montagues and capulets, and it is very clear and easy to see this because it is shown during the story when Juliet says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.’’
These two decisions resulted in two deaths and Romeo being banished from Verona. Romeo’s banishment brought about many tears from Juliet. His banishment was the reason a plan had to be devised to get him and Juliet together. Communication failed because Romeo was in Mantua. When he heard Juliet was “dead,” he came and killed Paris who was putting flowers where Juliet was.
Many times, people blame people other than themselves for the events they take place in their life. However, sometimes it is, in fact, the own person’s fault. In Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, there is a prime example of this. Tybalt died in Act 3, Scene 1 at no one else’s fault but his own. Tybalt demonstrated characteristics of an extreme hot head, he initiated, or tried to initiate multiple fights within the play, and he ended the life of a member of the Prince’s own family, Mercutio.
The acts of violence throughout the play comes in three different forms; murder, suicide, and combat. Polonius is unexpectedly murdered, Ophelia goes mad and commits suicide, and Hamlet provokes a battle with Laertes that ends poorly for both men. All three of these violent acts can be traced back to clouded judgements, indecisiveness, anger, revenge, and heartbreak. Shakespeare created such acts of violence to keep the readers on their toes and informed, but also to invoke questions. Is Hamlet Insane?
Friar Lawrence is responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet in William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Though the Friar is trying to help Romeo and Juliet, he is the catalyst of their destruction. Friar Lawrence’s hubris starts the chain reaction of tragic events for these “two star crossed lovers” (Prologue. 6). He then performs the marriage of Romeo and Juliet and even fabricates a foolish plan to keep them together when Juliet is forced to marry Paris.
In this chapter there will be dealt with the biggest dishonesties shown by each character and the way these behaviors have contributed in the life of the main character Hamlet,and what kind of role they have played in the tragic ending of the story. Firstly the cruelest figure in the play, Claudius will be analysed. The way how he has killed his brother and married his widow. How do his actions degrade up to the point he indirectly kills Hamlet? It willbe spoken of Gertrude`s role as a mother.
He feels much pain coursing through his blood from his friends murder, possibly due to the fact that he made him stop fighting leaving him vulnerable to the fatal blow of Tybalt. Though Mercutio isn’t the only person Romeo feels sorry for, even when innocent he still feels sorrow for Tybalt mainly in the fact that he is his cousin-in-law. After Tybalt is slain Romeo states, “O, I am a fortune’s fool. ”(p 49). This is his recognition of of the misfortunes that have befallen him with his cousin-in-law and best friend.
Romeo Killed Tybalt In The Bible, it says 'If a man takes the life of any human being, he shall surely be put to death. (Leviticus 24:17-21). This means that if a man kills any human being he shall die too. This is important in Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet because Romeo kills Tybalt, but because of Mercutio 's death by Tybalt 's hand.
Just one of these traumatic events could make a character go mad, but the combination of the three justifies Ophelia’s madness. The use of these three tragic events in Ophelia’s life makes her madness reasonable. The first event to happen that changes Ophelia’s demeanor is her relationship problems with her boyfriend, Hamlet. In Act III, Scene I of the play, Ophelia says to Hamlet “My lord, I have remembrances of yours, That I have longed long
Romeo blames fate, or fortune, for what has happened to him. Him slaying Tybalt was his fate. This then leads to probably the most fatal and important part of Act III… The prince banishing Romeo. Because of this only do Romeo and Juliet die, because Romeo is in another city they can’t communicate properly and the two star-crossed lovers commit suicide.
The reason she had a very big impact on this tragedy, is because she went to the Friar and got a sleeping drug. It made everyone think she was dead. It especially made Romeo very sad, he thought about killing his self. The next character in the book “Romeo and Juliet” that also had a very devastating impact on the tragedy was Romeo.
Benvolio says this to Romeo, because Tybalt has just been killed because he killed Mercutio. “Romeo, away, be gone! / The citizens are up and Tybalt slain. ”(3.1.130-131) This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents don’t know that they are married.
The first reason because of his anger with Romeo for falling in love with Juliet and Mercutio tries to defend Romeo which ends up causing Tybalt to fight Mercutio and kill him, and then Romeo killed Tybalt for taking Mercutio life away. The second reason is also because of tybalt having beef with romeo and mercutio which causes many hatred between the capulets and montagues, and so romeo couldn 't marry juliet. Therefore, Tybalt is clearly responsible for the play’s tragic ending.
Mercutio plays the role of Romeo’s cousin, and a troubled friend. He shows this part of himself during the Queen Mab speech where he is seen longing for something. In the speech, he continuously gets angrier and angrier, telling Romeo and his friends “This is the very Mab..” (1.4.89), “This is the hag…” (1.4.93), and then finally “This is she-”
Mercutios relationship with Romeo is a foil because their beliefs are extremely controversial with each other's. Fates, dreams and love are few of the thoughts where they disagree, and there opinions on each matter were shown a myriad throughout the play , this is shown to be true when Romeo states, "In bed asleep, while they do dreams come true" (1.4, lns 52). This quote supports my answer because Romeo is stating that your dream are prophecies where Mercutio, "...nothing but fantasy" (1.4, lns 98) believes that they mean nothing and are just childish thought. Another quote from the text that supports my answer is between Romeo and Mercutio, "And, to sink in it, should you burden love- too great oppression for a tender thing" (1.4, lns 23-24)
