[Tybalt under, Romeo's arm thrusts Mercutio in, and flies]” (Shakespeare 63). If Romeo tells Tybalt that him and Juliet's relationship, then Mercutio might have not died. “I think it best you married the county. O’ he's a lovely gentleman” (Shakespeare 88). Juliet could have told the nurse about her and Romeo's relationship.
Capulet, is forcing Juliet to marry Paris, to make Verona a happy place again after Tybalt's death. While Paris loves Juliet, Juliet still loves Romeo and cannot marry Paris because she and Romeo became married before he got exiled. Soon after Juliet learns about her forced marriage she plans on faking her death by drinking a potion to make her look dead for 48 hours. After the 48 hours, Romeo will meet her at her tomb and take Juliet away to be happy with each other. But as she drinks the potion we find out Romeo did not get the letter to meet her at the tomb and soon finds out she has died.
In Romeo & Juliet, the love story of the ages, Shakespeare doesn’t hold back with his intentional usages of comic relief. The first of which comes from Mercutio. In Romeo & Juliet, the comic relief is subtler to the point that it sounds serious. Shakespeare challenges the reader even more in these scenarios. After a heavy, charged scene (that of Romeo & Juliet meeting on the balcony in her rose garden), Shakespeare voices Mercutio calling for Romeo by talking about Rosaline (his former lover).
Dramatic Irony: A dramatic action/situation where the audience knows the outcome of but the characters does not. Thesis: In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare uses Dramatic Irony to enhance suspense within the audience to create anticipation while using irony to add a certain mood. 3C’s Function: In Act II, Scene II, Juliet is on her balcony expressing her feelings and the things she wishes, “O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name!
The main cause for Juliet’s death was Romeo. From the beginning of the play, Romeo had many issues, such as his depression and his tendency to fall in deep infatuation, mistaking it for love. Based on the text, the audience is able to infer that Romeo used girls to fill his depression that his family was attempting to help him with. When Romeo went to Friar Laurence 's cell to speak to him about his love for Juliet, the friar made it known to the audience that Romeo was seemingly just as in love with Rosaline not long before. Romeo led Juliet to believe that he was exceptionally in love with her, when he most likely showed a pattern of this behavior in the past.
The audience is able to see both of the lovers, but Juliet is not aware of Romeo’s presence. Both of them are insecure about the relationship. For once Juliet does not feel completely ready it is “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden” and “too like the lightning, which doth cease to be ere one can say ‘It lightens’.” (Act 2 Scene 2) for her. Juliet feels too overwhelmed by the sudden affection which is just like a lightning stroke. Yet Shakespeare displays an emancipatory access to woman kind, portrayed as Juliet, due to the reason that she stands up for her own created problems and in the long run matures as a self-confident woman.
Throughout the celebrated play “Romeo and Juliet,” William Shakespeare uses symbolism to explore enduring themes such as love, fate and revenge. The play, which tells the tragic story of star-crossed lovers from feuding families, uses a variety of symbols to deepen and reinforce the audience’s understanding of the play.

In Shakespeare’s case, he uses puns to put double meaning on words and phrases to catch the people’s attention. Puns are words that sound the same but have different/ double meanings. Quite a few puns can be read and seen throughout act 1 of this play.
Shakespeare has many instances of dramatic irony in Romeo and Juliet. He uses it for different purposes, one purpose is to show how, despite the Friar trying to help the situation he worsened it unintentionally. A second purpose is to show how secret Romeo and Juliet were. One example of dramatic irony is the Friar gives Juliet a potion and creates a plan to help Juliet be with Romeo again. While Juliet debates to take the potion she decides,”Romeo, Romeo, Romeo!
Think Think Think William Shakespeare wrote in one of his other works,”Go wisely and slow. Those who rush stumble and fall,” This theme of thinking before you act and before you speak are both revalent themes in Romeo and Juliet. In Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, the characters of Romeo and Juliet teach the readers three important lessons in their tragic love story. These characters show the importance to communicate effectively, thinking before an action, and understanding that all actions have consequences. Throughout the play, the characters in Romeo and Juliet fail to communicate effectively, even the most eloquent.
