This soil is blackened with a plague that doesn’t hesitate to kill and death shall follow. Romeo and Juliet dig deeper into this soil, so no one can see their love, but tragic events make their love blackened. The fate of the star-crossed lovers caused to do everything in secrecy/running away that caused R&J love to shrivel in the seeds of hate. The innocence of Romeo and Juliet’s life/events are stripped
The knife! Damn all of them! And the monster who invented them!” (6). She reminds the Bridegroom that his father and oldest brother both died at the hands of men who used weapons. They are things “that can cut into a man’s body!” (6), symbolizing death and destruction.
179-84). The Prince is angry that the feud between the two families has led to the murder of his relative. He tells Romeo that if he does not leave immediately and not return that he will be put to death. Romeo is not at all grateful that his life has been spared and says “There is no world without Verona walls, but purgatory torture, hell itself ...Then “banishment,” is death misterm’d. Calling death “banishment”.” (3.2.
Another similarity is the tragic ending of both stories. Romeo is cast out of the town because he had murdered Juliet 's cousin in a street brawl that was instigated by the Capulet family. Juliet takes a sleep potion and sends a message to Romeo to get her. However, Romeo does not get the message in time and believes that she had really died. He takes poison thus killing himself.
Romeo kills himself because he thinks Juliet is dead, Juliet kills herself because her love is dead, and everyone is sad. But why did Romeo think Juliet was dead? Shouldn’t he have been notified of the plan? Well, everyone makes mistakes – including Friars. Friar Lawrence gave a note to Friar John, who was supposed to take it to Mantua.
Now, what exactly do these three people have to do with Paris’ death? Romeo Montague is a fifteen year old boy who recently lost “the love of his life” Rosaline. Which is why he ended up at the Capulet’s party, and fell in love with Juliet Capulet. If you have read the play, it would automatically seem like Paris is dead because of the fact that Romeo stabbed him during their fight in the Capulet’s tomb. Paris was only at the tomb to say his goodbyes to his wife, who didn’t get
Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy because They both kill themselves over love. Two innocent lovers die a young tragic death. Romeo instantly falls in love with Juliet after being depressed about Rosaline, before the masquerade saying that he would never find someone better than Rosaline. Even the title is “Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.” If this is not a tragedy, then what is? Romeo kills himself over Juliet.
Because Romeo is a Montague, he is chancing a lot just being on the Capulet grounds, but does it anyways because they’re in love. Another way they show their willingness to risk death to be together is when Juliet chooses her death, “I will kiss thy lips. Haply some poison yet doth hang on them, To make me die with a restorative... O happy dagger, This is thy sheath. There rust and let me die.” (5.3.176-183). She couldn’t bare to be apart from Romeo so she kills herself over his dead body.
Sadly, things turn out for the worse as the two characters, due to misunderstandings and ill-timed events end up killing themselves. For example, in the last act just after Romeo kills Paris, and then himself, Juliet wakes only to see her beloved’s corpse as Friar Lawrence rushes over to her. Friar Lawrence is stating that a higher power, in this case, fate has ruined their plan. We know that Friar Lawrence is talking about fate when he says that they cannot contradict this power. According to this play you cannot contradict fate, it always has it’s way in the end, whether we know it or not.
