Violence Stems from Animosity Brutal violence and impulsivity are used in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare to demonstrate how violence can quickly arise from animosity and how the characters using violence should be held accountable for their actions, even if they were impulsive. Shakespeare’s famous work Romeo and Juliet contains brutal violence with the purpose of portraying how brutal violence stems from prejudice. Sampson, a Capulet servant, says, “'Tis all one, I will show myself a tyrant: when I / have fought with the men, I will be cruel with the / maids, and cut off their heads” (1.1.19-21). Sampson and Gregory use violence against Balthasar and Abraham, fighting in a quarrel that isn’t theirs, but their masters.

William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is a story known for being a tragedy and an incredible love story. However, is love more powerful than hate or is it the other way around in this story?

Many examples can be found in the story and are not just with Romeo and Juliet together.
This quote is explaining how Tybalt is using the family rivalry against Romeo when Romeo was just trying to be civil about the whole situation. If he hadn’t been so rude back to Romeo when he was just trying to be nice, there would not be such a huge problem and there is a chance Romeo and Juliet’s deaths would have never
Romeos and Juliets Death Romeo and Juliet is a tragic play about two love-struck teens that eventually falls in love. They have to face obstacles just to find a way to be together and eventually have to secrednize their marriage. The characters Friar Lawrence, Romeo and Lord, Lady Capulet are primarily responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. They all have things they did that leads to Romeo and Juliet’s departness.

Love and Rivalries mean only Violence and Tragedies It can be said that violence does not solve anything and its only outcome can be more continuous violence. This statement is truly made apparent during the story, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. The star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, as well as other characters throughout the story suffer continually from violence.
“Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love. Why the, o brawling love, o loving hate, O anything of nothing first create!” These lines give a great summary of the play. These quote show love and hate. From the quote we can conclude that there is the existence of severe hate in the play, due to the fact that shakespeare is using two opposite words: love and hate to describe Romeo and Juliet 's relationship.
Romeo and Juliet have fate against each other. Its said hat their love is “death marked.” Romeo and Juliet can’t control what going to happen as they go alone with this. For starters they’re in different groups, so they don’t know how their groups is going to react. It is their misfortune that leads to a terrible at the end.
The characters Sampson and Abraham fight at the very beginning of the play remarking to each other “[d]o you bite your thumb...sir?” (1.1, 55.60) then the bickering leads to swords drawn and fighting. These characters bully each other around until they physically fight each other. Another major bully in the play, is the families to each other. The Montagues and Capulets “[t]wo households alike in dignity” are feuding with each other and eventually cause the death of “star-crossed lovers” (Prologue).
The Immaturity of Romeo and Juliet Immaturity can spread throughout things and people creating problems for the present and future. Similarly, Romeo and Juliet not only shows the development of love, but the loss of maturity that leads to tragedy. People develop maturity, but the amount of immaturity makes the process go backwards. From Romeo and Juliet’s fast evolving relationship to the hate between the two families, and the lack of thought in different characters is recurrent throughout the story. Therefore,the theme of Romeo and Juliet evolves around the idea of immaturity.
Each and every day, people make sacrifices for their loved ones. Maybe they choose to get up earlier in order to do chores or miss an important meeting so that they would have time for each other. There is no greater example of sacrifices for loved ones than in Romeo and Juliet however, where Shakespeare explores two star-crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, who come from two families that have a deep hatred towards each other. The pair meet each other, secretly wed, and then in order to stay together, commit suicide out of despair and distress. Through Romeo and Juliet’s acts of defiance and sacrifice, Shakespeare proves that while hate has the power to destroy and kill, love is even more powerful as it has the power to transform.
“The lovers want to live in union; the death-dealing feud opposes their desire” (Kahn 185) and the play suddenly turns into a tragedy. Thus, the feud plays a crucial role in the dramatic development of the play. Firstly, it is the feud which causes Tybald to kill Mercutio, as “To Tybald, a sword can only mean a challenge to fight, and peace is such a word” (Kahn 174). Furthermore, due to this conflict Romeo murders Tybald in order to take revenge for his friend’s death and in this way according to Paster he bothers the completion of his secret marriage with Juliet
Tybalt sent a letter to Romeo saying that there is going to be a battle between the two, but the letter never gets to Romeo. Mercutio is the one who gets the letter and does not tell Romeo. When Tybalt comes to battle Romeo, Mercutio tries to distract Tybalt, so he will not try to fight Romeo, and he gets killed. Romeo is angry with Tybalt, because of what he did to Mercutio, and ends up killing Tybalt. He then felt regret right after he did this, because they are now related through marriage.
