Romeo ended up stabbing Tybalt, who instantly fell. By killing Tybalt, not only did the Capulet family detest Romeo further, but also Romeo got banished from Verona. If Romeo had held himself together long enough to leave the fight scene without fighting Tybalt, he could have had a chance to escape with Juliet. Instead, Romeo made the dreadful mistake of fighting Tybalt, which ultimately led to him getting banished. Romeo could have saved his and Juliet’s future, but he was so desperate that he had to kill
The first poor plan that the Friar partook in was marrying Romeo and Juliet. If he did not marry them, then all the tragedies could have been avoided. Marriage creates a strong bond between two people that is almost unbreakable. The second fault that he made was when he created the risky plan to fake Juliet’s death. This strategy would have let Romeo come and sweep her out of death and take them into a new life together.
In conclusion, Old Capulet and Friar Lawrence should be punished and Balthazar should be pardoned. I know I gave enough evidence why the people I chose should be pardoned or punished. Even though Romeo and Juliet did their separate things away from these people, They still killed themselves because they couldn’t be with each other. The Montagues and the Capulets basically forced them to do this because they wouldn’t see each other once Romeo was banished. Even then they still couldn’t see each other because the families hated each
He married his sister in law and had to sin much more in order to cover his tracks(Act 1, Scene 5, line 44). The new king was even too lazy to cover his own lies and protect himself, which causes much heartbreak in the end. The king kills his new wife because he was too lazy to kill young Hamlet himself(Act 5, scene 2, line 316). The king tried to get Laertes to kill Hamlet to protect himself. As a backup plan, he mixes a poison in hopes that Hamlet would drink it.
Romeo does receive a reversal of fortune due to his marriage to Juliet. In 3.1.129-140, Romeo ends up killing Tybalt, which was then his cousin because he married Juliet. His rash, passionate judgement of the event that killed Mercutio lead him to believe that he should take revenge. Also, it is because of Romeo and Juliet’s secret wedding that Tybalt decided to pick a fight with Romeo without a second thought in the first place (2.4.7-13 and 3.1). If Tybalt knew that Romeo had married Juliet and was now Tybalt’s cousin, then he wouldn't have willingly started a fight.
Pardoned or Punished? “These violent delights have violent ends and in their triumph die.” (2.6.9). Friar Lawrence attempted to warn Romeo and Juliet and told Romeo that they weren’t actually in love but that didn’t stop Romeo from pushing Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet. In Romeo and Juliet, Benvolio should be pardoned and Nurse and Friar Lawrence should be punished. Benvolio should be pardoned.
True love is supposed to be the best. It shouldn't cause you to take the lives of one of your friends and family members, then end up killing yourself. This “love” tortures everyone involved, causing nothing but pain and suffering. For example, in Act 5 Scene 1, Romeo says “An if a man did need a poison now — Whose sale is present death in Mantua— Here lives a caitiff wretch would sell it him.” (5.1.52-54) Romeo is shown trying to think of who would sell him poison to kill himself just minutes after he discovered Juliet's apparent fate. Romeo is willing to end his own life over a girl he met not even a week ago.
This soliloquy was the climax of the story because once Romeo kills himself, there is no going back to the way things used to be. The meaning behind the passage is Romeo thinking that Juliet is having an affair with death because of how alive and well she looks even though she is “dead.” Therefore Romeo wants to do his now late cousin a favor and kill himself to basically avenge Tybalt’s death. Shakespeare uses dramatic irony in this passage to create the tone. All of the audience knows that Juliet is going to wake up and is most likely seconds away from waking up. However, Romeo does not know that and therefore is going to Juliet’s tomb to kill himself with her.
The Friar soon tells Romeo he’s banished. Romeo throws a fit saying he would rather die than be banished. Romeo says, “Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say ‘death’.” Romeo is saying that he rather die than having to leave Juliet. Romeo is willing to die for a girl a he met a day ago and claims it to be true love.
In fact, they blame the “bad” circumstances on fate. In the play, After Romeo is challenged to a duel, he stabs Tybalt and exclaims, “O, I am fortunes fool!” (3.1.133). But before Romeo fights Tybalt, Tybalt challenges Mercutio. Trying to make peace, Romeo jumps into the fight and gets killed under Mercutio’s arm. Romeo was furious that Tybalt had killed one of his best friends, so he decided to jump in.
Reason one to support that is the first of many bad choices he makes is threatening suicide because his first love interest rosaline isn 't interested in him so he decided that if he couldn 't be with rosaline he would be better off dead. Next is that he married Juliet at first sight, marriage is a life changing decision that should not be made within the first couple hours of knowing someone (he proposed somewhere around two hours after meeting Juliet). Lastly when he gets to the Capulets tomb to find a ‘dead’ juilet he kills himself even though she was actullay sleeping and any clearheaded person would have known that.Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, And death’s pale flag is not advancèd there.”(shakespeare act 5 scene 3 line 100). If he had been thinking romeo would have known that color in the cheeks means that a person is alive and not dead. But since he was so caught up in his thoughts and not reality he makes the irrational of killing himself and so does
