He is a main character who has a good outlook on life but then his whole life falls apart and he dies because of his fatal flaw. Romeo’s fatal flaw is his impulsive emotional reactions. Romeo is newly wed to Juliet when he walks up on Tybalt and his friend Mercutio fighting. He tries to stop the fight but Tybalt kills Mercutio.Later Benvolio tells the prince that “Tybalt hit the life / Of stout Mercutio, and then Tybalt fled.” (Shakespeare lll.l.177-178).
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is a tragedy about two young lovers, Romeo, and Juliet, from rival families who very quickly fall in love. They marry secretly, and the lovers end up killing themselves in order to not live without one another. As soon as Romeo and Juliet fall immaturely in love, they forget all about loyalty to their families. One instance is when Romeo was willing to deny his family name in order to please Juliet the same night they met. Another example is when Juliet sides with Romeo after he killed her cousin in the name of love.
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.
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.
The main cause for Juliet’s death was Romeo. From the beginning of the play, Romeo had many issues, such as his depression and his tendency to fall in deep infatuation, mistaking it for love. Based on the text, the audience is able to infer that Romeo used girls to fill his depression that his family was attempting to help him with. When Romeo went to Friar Laurence 's cell to speak to him about his love for Juliet, the friar made it known to the audience that Romeo was seemingly just as in love with Rosaline not long before. Romeo led Juliet to believe that he was exceptionally in love with her, when he most likely showed a pattern of this behavior in the past.
All that fighting causes Romeo to be banished. After all that, Romeo allegedly hears of Juliet 's “death” so he goes back to Verona and kills himself next to Juliet. Then Juliet wakes up next to the dead Romeo and kills herself with his dagger. Overall, Romeo and Juliet show love is stronger than hate as they risk their lives just to see each other and eventually die together. Hate may have killed them, but hate is not enough to disrupt their love, they are still together, even when they are dead.
The death of Romeo and Juliet is fate's end result. Evidence to prove the statement is hidden within the play’s complex Shakespearean language. The blame of it all became evident within the first couple of lines. The prologue, being an introduction, explained the situation and connected it with fate. Shakespeare states, “From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star crossed lovers take their life” (prologue 5-6).
Aristotle defined “tragic hero” as one who makes a judgement error that inevitably leads to his or her own destruction. An excellent example of a tragic hero, as according to Aristotle’s definition, is Romeo Montague from Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. Romeo is an appropriate example because he demonstrates flaw, experiences a reversal of fortune brought by his own actions, and later realises that the reversal of fortune brought on him was his fault. To start the fire, the first attribute in Aristotle’s definition of a tragic hero is that he or she must bespeak a flaw or error of judgment, also known by the Greeks as “hamartia”. Romeo, in fact, does possess this characteristic because he is governed by his rash, passionate judgement.
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.
“Is she a Capulet? O dear account! my life is my foe’s debt.” (Romeo and Juliet, Act I Scene V line 117) This is the scene where Romeo realises that Juliet was a Capulet. The phrase “my life is my foe’s debt” is an idea from Romeo, that his life is debt forever to an enemy, the Capulet for being in love with Juliet; which is a metaphor that he loves her so much. Also, this “debt” is “dear”, which means that being love with her is costly, as Nurse said, but also means that he understands they should have fallen in love if no one would accept them for being a couple; In fact, he is suppose to hate her not to love her.
