Quickly thereafter, Romeo takes revenge for his fallen comrade, in turn killing Tybalt, leading to his excommunication. Hearing of her son’s exile, Lady Montague is tremendously struck with grief and dies of a heart attack, which is mentioned later on, as his happened offstage. At the end of the play, Juliet fakes her own death, to avoid marrying Paris and to be able to run away with Romeo, according to Friar Lawrence’s plan. However, Romeo was not properly informed of this scheme, so he thought Juliet had really perished. When Paris himself wanted to say his last goodbyes to Juliet, he found a grief-stricken Romeo, who murders Paris after a short duel.
She cannot decide which outcome is worse, the death of Tybalt or the death of her beloved Romeo, while debating she says, “Ah, my poor [Romeo] , what tongue shall smooth thy name, When I, thy three hours’ wife, have mangled it? But wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin? That villain cousin would have killed my husband… My husband lives, that Tybalt would have slain, and Tybalt’s dead, that would have slain my husband” (3.2. 99-113). If Juliet had never met Romeo, him killing Tybalt would just be another reason for her to hate the Montagues, but now she belongs to both the Capulet and Montague families.
First, her boyfriend dumps her, then he calls her vulgar names, and lastly, he kills her father. Just one of these traumatic events could make a character go mad, but the combination of the three justifies Ophelia’s madness. The use of these three tragic events in Ophelia’s life makes her madness reasonable. The first event to happen that changes Ophelia’s demeanor is her relationship problems with her boyfriend, Hamlet. In Act III, Scene I of the play, Ophelia says to Hamlet “My lord, I have remembrances of yours, That I have longed long
Little does Romeo know she is about to wake up due to the sleeping potions 48-hour time limit. But before she wakes, Romeo makes the bold, braving decision to be with her and drinks poison laying next to her while dying. This is the end of Romeo, but as he died Juliet wakes up and is horrified to see Paris and Romeo both dead. She takes Romeo's dagger and says “My body will be your sheath” (Act 5 Line 186), soon after she stabbed herself and died next to Romeo. All of these different kinds of love lead to the death or 13-years-old Juliet and 18-year-old Romeo.
He then performs the marriage of Romeo and Juliet and even fabricates a foolish plan to keep them together when Juliet is forced to marry Paris. He also leaves Juliet alone in the tomb after she awakens to find her beloved Romeo dead. Friar Lawrence is a moral man, but his hubris leads to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo considers the Friar someone he can confide in, and he tells the Friar of his newfound love for Juliet. The Friar’s excessive pride allows him to agree to wed Romeo and Juliet, hoping he can bring the Montagues and Capulets together, though these families hatred spans generations.
The next day Lord and Lady Capulet, along with Paris find the lovely young bride Juliet ¨dead.¨ Later they laid her down to rest in the Capulet tomb. Friar was supposed to send world to Romeo, but nothing was ever delivered because the whole city was under quarantine. Romeo hears about the tragedy of Juliet's death and is very distraught, not knowing that Juliet is really alive. He then gets a horse along with poison and head to Verona to kill himself. After making it into Juliet's tomb he drinks the potion and kills himself so that he could be with Juliet.
“For never was a story of more woe / Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” (Shakespeare V.iii.569-570). How did the decisions and mindsets of the characters lead to such a tragic ending? Hence, Romeo and Juliet, the classic play about two star-crossed lovers from feuding families, written by William Shakespeare, illustrates how the consequences of our actions can often be far worse than imagined. The play opens as they fall in love and get married, but Romeo faces exile for killing Juliet’s cousin in a fight and they both eventually commit suicide when they are not able to be together, leading their families to finally make peace. Evidently, Shakespeare argues that it is important to make decisions based on logical reasoning rather than let ourselves be influenced by strong emotions because it will allow us to truly understand the consequences, protect our loved ones, and maintain autonomy over our own lives.
In contrast to this, Macbeth is consumed by his ambition after being influenced by the witches and his wife. “I murdered you, my son, against my will- you too, my wife…”(1461-1462) Creon regrets his actions by the end of the play. From these lines Sophocles made it even more clear that if you defy the gods, you will surely regret your actions. “Though Birnam Wood be come to Dunsinane and thou
Thy lips warm” (5.3.166-172). This means that in Juliet’s last moments she wanted to die with her final act being a kiss on Romeos lips. This quote, showing us Juliet has discovered Romeo is dead after killing himself for her and instantly is flooded with grief and turns to killing herself to join
Death, tragedy, misery, love, and unity; all of these words describe the story of Romeo and Juliet, but all the tragedy in the young lovers’ lives spiraled from Tybalt and his first terrible mistake. In the play “Romeo and Juliet” written by Shakespeare, the short story is that two young lovers secretly get married, people murder in anger, the two lovers get separated, and then end their own lives in a tragic death because of no communication. But, like I said, this all revolves around a mistake Tybalt made because of the feud between the Capulets--Juliet’s family-- and the Montague--Romeo’s family. Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because he killed Mercutio, which led to Romeo 's banishment, which then led to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. In the play “Romeo and Juliet”, Tybalt is a relative to the Capulet family, and the Capulets and Montagues have a long-time running feud between their families that causes a lot of anger and revenge attacks between the two families.
Romeo and Juliet is a novel written by Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet are two star crossed lovers. Romeo gets banished because of his killing behavior. Juliet is very depressed because of his behavior and killing, Lord Capulet decides that it would be a good idea for Juliet to marry Paris. Juliet doesn’t want to marry him because she is already married to Romeo, so she and the Friar devise a plan to let Romeo and Juliet live happily ever after.
The main characters in this essay are of course Romeo and Juliet and then who is to blame, tybalt, the Friar, and then lord Capulet. The play which is set in Verona is a story about a long feud between the Montague and Capulet families. This feud causes tragic results for the main characters in the play, Romeo and Juliet. The events contrast hatred and revenge with love and a secret marriage, forcing the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly and die tragically in despair. Romeo and Juliet’s deaths could be blamed on three people, Tybalt, Juliet’s Father, and the Friar, because Juliet’s father was pushing an unwanted marriage, and then Tybalt he wanted to fight Romeo and he ended up getting killed, making Juliet’s parents think they
Romeo 's personality of peace, loving, yet vengeful caused his own doom once he was exiled for killing Tybalt who killed Mercutio. Thus 'evidently causing pain for Juliet who lost both her lover and cousin. Juliet 's father arranging Juliet 's marriage to Paris made her mourning worse, already being married to Romeo yet being separated made her to reason with Friar Laurence. The plan that was supposed to reunite both Lovers indefinetly brought upon their own doom. Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her.
The fact that Romeo fails to comply with the rule that a Montague and Capulet cannot marry shows his impulsivity. Juliet only briefly thinks of the difficulty of the two families coming together, but is then drawn back to Romeo’s convincing suggestion. This situation is one of the fatal mistakes that leads to the death of Romeo, Juliet, and many others. In another instance, Tybalt engaged in a fight with Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend, resulting in Mercutio’s death. Mercutio stepped in to take Romeo’s place unaware of the fact that Romeo was now part of the Capulet family and therefore unwilling to fight Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin.
Famously known as the star-crossed lovers from rival households, Romeo and Juliet depicts William Shakespeare’s definition of a tragedy a play ending with the protagonists’ death. However, they are also notable for their impulsive decisions which eventually leading to their suicide. For example, Romeo falling in love with Juliet within minutes of seeing her at the Capulet’s party, “For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” (I, v, 51) as he was heartbroken over Rosaline earlier that day. Yet, Romeo and Juliet are not to blame for their downfall. In the end, it was Friar Lawrence who killed the lovers with a corrupt plan.
