In the play Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, explains on how two lovers fell in love while being in two feuding families. Throughout all their struggles, the love of Romeo and Juliet triumphed it all. However, it led to both lovers taking their lives, which ended the whole family feud. Now, we all ask ourselves: Who’s to blame? The individuals who are responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet are Juliet’s parents, Friar Lawrence, and Juliet herself.
Lord Capulet wants to marry Juliet and Paris to calm her down and prevent further emotions she has towards Tybalt’s death. In this excerpt, Master Shakespeare uses dramatic
In this play, young Juliet is set out by her family to marry Paris. Juliet is highly against this and tells her mother, "O, sweet my mother, cast me not away! Delay this marriage for a month; a week or, if you do not, make the bridal bed in that dim moment where Tybalt lies. " Juliet uses the reference "where Tybalt lies" as foreshadowing and intentions to hurt her mother.
Throughout the play, readers observe the many obstacles Romeo and Juliet endure in pursuit of love. In Act 3, Scene 5, Romeo and Juliet meet for the last time following Tybalt’s death, sharing their last precious moments together. Soon after, Romeo threatens to kill himself with a knife in front of the Friar after he is banishment from Verona and his love. Romeo says, “Thou canst not speak of that thou dost not feel. Wert thou as young as I, Juliet thy love /
After Juliet’s party, Romeo sneaks into the Capulets’ garden to be with Juliet. She says that because they are of rival families, they cannot openly love one another. In response to Juliet, Romeo declares, “Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptized. / Henceforth I never will be Romeo” (2.2.54-55). Romeo vows he loves Juliet with so much devotion that he would deny his name for her.
Prior to this, free will is such a debatable topic of why one problem is deemed to happen. An illustration, William Shakespeare demonstrates is when Romeo and Juliet decide to marry each other, within the first couple of days they meet, “she leaves me so satisfied? Th’ exchange of thy love’s faithful vow for mine” (2.2.132). Knowing that they are from rivalry families, we as readers don 't know the consequences they will later undergo. 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).
Both end with the same line: “For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo”. There is a difference when in the play, Juliet has a long sylloloque about her sudden, but not long lasting hate towards Romeo but in the movie, this is shortened. A conversation between Juliet to her mother about Romeo is completely removed. In the conversation, Juliet talks in a double sided way appearing to dislike the Montagues to her mother but it can also be read in a way to show how much she loves Romeo. Another is when the Nurse telling Juliet that Romeo has slain Tybalt is
This is encapsulated in Hamlet exclaims, “frailty, thy name is woman!” about his mother’s hasty marriage to her deceased husband’s brother (Shakespeare 1.2.150). In this quote, Hamlet is dismissing all women as weak-willed like he believes Gertrude to be, which affects his interactions with Ophelia also. Hamlet is cruel to her because of this anger he has towards women in general, so when pretending to be mad, he goes “full force in the misogynist rage” when telling her he used to love her, but now she should go to a nunnery (Traub 192). Ophelia can be seen as weak in this scene because she protests little against Hamlet and only hopes that his insanity will end.
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.
For Hamlet, however, the problem of seeing a genuine difference between his original father and the man Gertrude has called his father assumes enormous significance at precisely this
Through Juliet 's conversation of Romeo and Tybalt with her mother, Shakespeare again reveals that love is closely followed by violence. Juliet’s mother enters Juliet’s room the moment after Romeo leaves. She speaks with Juliet about her plans to kill Romeo. During their conversation Juliet speaks of Romeo in a loving way without Lady Capulet noticing. Lady Capulet asks if killing Romeo will make her happy and Juliet replies saying “Indeed, I never shall be satisfied / With Romeo till I behold him—dead— Is my poor heart, so for a kinsman vexed” (3.5.98-100).
Tragedies cannot be written without a glimpse of the happy ending that might have been. In Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, the ironic fact remains that it did not have to be a story of woe. In a series of over complications and misguided decisions, the happy love story of Romeo and Juliet turns into several tragic deaths as a result of secrets well kept. One of the most influential people in creating this ending is Lord Capulet, through no fault of his own. For the duration of the play, Lord Capulet only does what he thinks will make Juliet happy.
