Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill.”(3.1) It is the prince saying that romeo will be exiled for killing tybalt but not killed for avenging his cousin. Tybalt is the cause that Romeo was sent away. Tybalt is also the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because Juliet is then forced to marry paris so she pretends to be dead. The nurse says(unknowingly that she’s faking it)”She’s dead, deceased, she’s dead. Alack the day!”(4.5.)
Love is the number one reason for teen suicides. Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare shows reasons why this statement is true. The tragedy is set in Verona, where the descendants of feuding families fall in love. The love between Romeo and Juliet’s leads them to their deaths. Throughout the play Shakespeare presents through different characters that a person should not prioritize love over life.
In ‘Romeo and Juliet’ the Capulets and Montage's end their feud after the tragedy itself. “O brother Montague, give me thy hand” (Shakespeare 5.3 Page 13). Capulet has realized the harm and effects of the death of the ‘star-crossed lovers’ after losing his precious treasure he felt guilt due to all the cruel words he had said to Juliet. The feud is an important aspect of the book because it was the reason for all the deaths and secrecy. “Doth with their death bury their parents' strife.” (Shakespeare Prologue page 1.)
After that he was banished from his homeland, Juliet is forced to marry and the two lovers found out that both supposedly died so they both commit suicide. Shakespeare makes a point that both Romeo and Juliet make impulsive decisions that lead to their death. During the second scene of Act II, Romeo and Juliet decide to get married after having met hours before at the Capulet party. In the scene that follows, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence, “but this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today” (Shakespeare 410). Here, Romeo is requesting that Friar Lawrence marry him and
Fate is a power that some people believe determines a person’s future. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, fate prevents Romeo’s and Juliet’s intense love. The play is about these two teenagers during the Renaissance who fall in love, but they are from different families, Capulet and Montague who are in a prolonged quarrel. Despite the obstacles, Romeo and Juliet wed and a sequence of events cause Romeo and Juliet both to die. There are multiple occasions where fate gets in the way of Romeo and Juliet such as when Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo being banished, Juliet being forced to marry Paris, the failure of Romeo being informed of Juliet’s fake death and Romeo killing himself.
This creates indirect characterization when he uses complex juxtaposition to describe Romeo and Juliet's complex love. Through terms of contrast, Shakespeare characterizes Romeo as naive in the beginning of the play. Romeo makes mistakes by killing Tybalt and this destroys Juliet. She becomes heart-broken from this because her true love had just killed her cousin. This reveals Romeos dark side.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, a play set in the fourteenth century, two young lovers experience the fluctuations of love as they fend off all the obstacles that their families and friends create. Friar Laurence plays a part in their deaths due to his lack of urgency and his inconsiderate decisions.The Nurse is also responsible for their deaths because of her betrayal and her dishonesty. Finally, Capulet is also responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths because of his selfish and ignorant actions. The irresponsible actions of Capulet, Friar Laurence, and the Nurse lead to the tragic suicide of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Laurence’s rash action in marrying Juliet, his hasty plan to avert Juliet from an unwanted marriage with Paris, and his failure to get his message delivered to Romeo in time all contribute to the death of Romeo and Juliet.
“For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” (740) William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, is the tale of two star-crossed lovers from Verona who love each other despite their feuding families, but ultimately meet their end. Romeo and Juliet are predestined to die because of fate, but the foolish mistakes and reliance on luck and chance by multiple characters are what contribute to the star-crossed lovers’ destinies coming true. Throughout the play, fate ensures that Romeo and Juliet will come to their demise. Romeo says this quote, “Alive, in triumph! And Mercutio slain!
Shakespeare, in the disastrous story of Romeo and Juliet, chose the theme of family. The family feud causes Romeo and Juliet to kill themselves with their love still a secret. If the two families hadn’t been fighting then Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t have had to keep their love a secret and they wouldn’t have had to fake Juliet’s death which lead to both of them really dieing. The two of the families fighting caused them to keep their love a secret and eventually their deaths, which all started with family. The two kids died with their families still fighting and the story ending and
If Romeo and Juliet would kill themselves if they could not be together and on thing in the way of that is the feud then the feud is just as bad as Romeo and Juliet themselves.
