3. 169-171). This scene occurs after Romeo drinks poison and kills himself when Juliet wakes up and sees this she decides to kill herself. In the Elizabethan times, women were considered the weaker gender. When Juliet stabs herself with Romeo knife she created situational irony as stabbing yourself with a dagger is considered a very painful death.
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to talk to someone but you couldn 't due to problems in the past? If you can relate to this, I would recommend reading Romeo and Juliet. In the story Romeo and Juliet, Lord and Lady Montague and Lord and Lady Capulet are ultimately at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Due to lord and lady capulet and montague continuing their everlasting feud, romeo and juliet both ended up committing suicide. Both romeo and juliet believed that they could not live without one another so when romeo mistakenly thought juliet died, he killed himself which led to the death of juliet.
This is ironic because by doing this Tybalt ends up killing Mercutio. He takes revenge for Mercutio, and kills Tybalt. This causes Romeo to get banished out of Verona, where he can't be together with Juliet . Later in the play, Juliet wakes up and finds out from Friar Lawrence that Romeo is dead. She decides to kill herself instead of running away.
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.
When saying “with a kiss I die.” Shakespeare uses the kiss to represent that this is what is killing him, so in other words, Romeo’s love for Juliet is worth dying for. Similarly, Juliet feels the same need in which she also does not want to live without Romeo. Juliet finds Romeo laying beside her in the Capulet tomb dead, deciding “I’ll be brief. O, happy dagger, This is thy sheath. There rust, and let me die.
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.
Although, if the consumer 's life is dominated with an evil influence that person will die no matter how they use it. This relates to Romeo and Juliet’s love, which symbolizes the good, while the feud between their families symbolizes the dominating evil. This expresses a tone of tragedy because it foreshadows the sorrow of Romeo and Juliet’s untimely and unnecessary deaths due to the feud. Another example is when Juliet is about to drink the sleeping potion administered to her by the Friar. This potion will feign her death for forty two hours by putting her in a cold, death like, deep sleep.
I long to die If what thou speak’st speak not of remedy. (3.1.61-67) Juliet was so sad about Romeo being banished that she had to find another way to be without Romeo. She thought that death or faking her death would be best. Friar told Juliet forty eight hours after she took the potion she would wake up and be with Romeo, but fate had a different plan. This then leads to Romeo coming back to Juliet.
In the beginning of the play, it is evident how much Macbeth loves his wife. This is what makes it so easy for her to bribe him into killing Duncan, which eventually leads to him killing many more people. Unfortunately, in the end of the play, their relationship gets ruined and Lady Macbeth ends up taking her own life. Because of one bribe, Macbeth went on to become a serial killer and their relationship would turn to mush. In act 3, scene 4, line 119, Lady Macbeth responds to Ross: “I pray you, speak not: He grows worse and worse; question enrages him: at once, good night.
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 friar 's inability to succesfully delivering the letter to Romeo stating that Juliet was alive was a gap that caused romeo to make his harsh decision, but it was too late once he got to the tomb. Upon killing Paris and himself with the poison, Romeo fell beside Juliet, whom stabbed herself once she awoke upon seeing Romeo dead before her eyes. Had Romeo and Juliet respected their families wishes, had they not gone into secrecy, had their relatives stayed out of their love, they wouldnt have blindly caused
Tybalt let his anger get the best of him, which caused him his life, Mercutio’s life, and Romeo’s banishment. After Romeo gets banished the climax rises because now it makes everything harder for him and Juliet. Whos gonna let their daughter marry someone who killed her cousin? Because of Romeo’s banishment Juliet is forced to fake her own death so she doesn’t have to marry Paris. But Romeo didn’t know it was fake so he Killed himself and Juliet ended up killing herself as well.
The reason she had a very big impact on this tragedy, is because she went to the Friar and got a sleeping drug. It made everyone think she was dead. It especially made Romeo very sad, he thought about killing his self. The next character in the book “Romeo and Juliet” that also had a very devastating impact on the tragedy was Romeo. He thought that Juliet was dead,(which she wasn’t) so Romeo stabbed and killed himself.
Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison. Later in the tragedy, Romeo sees Juliet dead in the mausoleum, and decides to express his love for her, then drink the poison. Once Juliet awakes from her deep sleep and sees Romeo dead, she takes her own life with a dagger. Both Juliet and Romeo’s tragic downfall could have been avoided if Romeo thought about the consequences before he murdered Tybalt. Romeo’s rash behaviors in Romeo and Juliet resulted in many negative consequences, and he consistently acted impetuously that impacted others in an unnecessary way.
Who is to blame for the death of the two lovers, in William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”? Although, Friar Lawrence and Fate are partially to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet, the families of the two take most the blame. Friar Lawrence said to Romeo before marrying him to Juliet that “these violent delights have violent ends”, foreshadowing the death of Romeo and Juliet. After Romeo is banished for killing Tybalt, The Friar develops a plan for Romeo and Juliet to be together. This plan is for Juliet to drink a mixture from a vial that puts her to sleep for forty-two hours, making her appear dead to everyone else.
