In Romeo and Juliet, there are many complex characters that make this play more dramatic and interesting. Romeo is clearly one example of a complex character, where his romanticism blurs his sense of reality. An example of where this is seen during the play is when he falls for Juliet even though he declares that there is no one better than the woman he previously loved, Rosaline. Another example is when Romeo realizes that because of how he has lost his sense of reality, he has let his friend Mercutio die to one of their enemies: Tybalt. These two instances show how complex a character Romeo is and this shows how people in the real world can be similar to him by being complex and difficult to understand.
To Kill a Cat, According to Shakespeare Writers have intentions for what they write and how they write it. William Shakespeare is an example of this type of purposeful writer in his play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. He times and constructs each death so carefully to teach the readers and to influence the rest of the story. Enter the story 's short-tempered main antagonist, Tybalt—a married-in Capulet and Juliet 's first-cousin who greatly values the honor and pride of himself and his family and is the greatest swordfighter in Verona. He is also teased to be the "Prince of Cats" multiple times in the play.
The Fatal Flaws of Romeo Have you ever loved someone so much that you would be willing to give your life to be with them? In Shakespeare’s compelling play, Romeo and Juliet, that was the decision that Romeo and Juliet had to make. Romeo and Juliet were born into families that had been hostile toward each other for generations. When Romeo, a member of the Montague family, met Juliet, of the Capulet family, he immediately wanted to marry her despite their opposing families. Juliet’s father, Lord Capulet, had already decided he would marry her off to Paris, a member of the Capulet family, so Juliet decided to run away.
Looking around a highschool classroom and studying the faces of the students. Wondering about the choices they have made, universal choices that will permanently affect them and their future, like ripples on the water of a usually still lake. Contemplating where they would be if previous decisions had been decided in a different manner, curious of where and who they would be. The decisions that they have previously made will continue to ripple and affect their lives. It truthfully really leaves a person to wonder, why humans are unable to base decisions off of other people’s mistakes whether fictional or real.
While Romeo and Juliet both perished by their own hands, I believe their death ultimately arose due to the characters in the novel and the choices that they made. More specifically, I believe Romeo Montague's character to be at the fault of both lovers dying. By looking at Romeo and his character traits, we can observe many characteristics that are destructive towards society as a whole. Among these are his overly romantic nature, his impulsivity, and his desire to seek revenge and right wrongs. Here is why I believe Romeo killed Romeo and Juliet.
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. Also, the decisions they made and the problems they caused such as ruining true love.
Romeo tells Tybalt, “I do protest I never injur’d thee, but love thee better than thou canst devise” (162). Romeo tells Tybalt he loves him but cannot tell him the reason why, the reason being they are technically family now through his marriage to Juliet. Mercutio grows frustrated because Tybalt calls Romeo a villain, Mercutio believes Tybalt should not get away with being so insulting. Romeo reacts to being called a villain by saying “I love you so I don’t care that you called me a bad name. But you clearly don’t know me very well, goodbye!”
Do you believe in love at first sight? Romeo and Juliet did and it lead to both of their deaths. Romeo believed that he was in love, a feeling he had never truly felt before. As a young teen, you could expect that he would make some irrational decisions, but nothing like what he did to be with who he believed to be his true love. Romeo Montague 's fatal flaw was his impulsiveness due to falling in love and marry Juliet, becoming a murderer, and taking his own life .
