In Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the children of two rival houses fall in love but were destined to die tragically from the beginning they met. The events causing the death of the star crossed lovers could be traced to Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. Mercutio is the one and only best friend to Romeo. He is very hot tempered, comical, and seems to view life in an unserious manner. He actively teases Romeo about his love life and is the person to stir trouble.
When naive young Romeo and Juliet meet each other and fall in love despite their families feud they become star-crossed lovers. Both lovers do everything in their power to be together. Their doomed fate induces problems and tragic endings as well as their own. Their deaths resolve the feud and teach the Capulets and Montagues a lesson. Their parents ' trivial feud kill the thing they loved the most.
He does this despite not knowing her because the pleasure he experiences from being loved by Juliet keeps him from analyzing the danger of the situation. Juliet agrees to marry Romeo when they see each other again the night they met. The connection between the two lovers is reminiscent of the quote, “Parting is all we need to know of hell” (Dickens) because the two are so drawn to each other that they cannot bear to be apart. “Romantic love is like a cocaine high, except you can come down from a cocaine high. Romantic love is an obsession” (Helen Fisher).
When Juliet is crying over Romeo's banishment, her father tells her to marry Paris to make her happy again. Since Romeo has been banished Juliet fakes her death so she can run away with Romeo. All these examples of dramatic irony heightens the tragedy, and keeps the reader on
In the play Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, explains on how two lovers fell in love while being in two feuding families. Throughout all their struggles, the love of Romeo and Juliet triumphed it all. However, it led to both lovers taking their lives, which ended the whole family feud. Now, we all ask ourselves: Who’s to blame? The individuals who are responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet are Juliet’s parents, Friar Lawrence, and Juliet herself.
There are numerous clues and small details that point to Lord Capulet and Friar Laurence being accountable for the Romeo and Juliet’s death. Lord Capulet forced his daughter into marrying Paris, though she strongly dissents the idea. After she finally “agrees”, He is so thrilled that he moves up the wedding, ruining the plan. Friar Laurence is guilty due to him coming up with a cumbersome plan and leaving Juliet alone, to save himself from the watch. In Conclusion, Lord Capulet and Friar Laurence are responsible for the loss of Romeo and
In fact, in the prologue it says “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life;” the phrase star-crossed means full of bad luck. So this play is meant to have bad luck (or bad decisions?). When Romeo and Juliet decide to get married or Juliet decides to fake her death and not tell Romeo. Those decisions were foolish and self-centered decisions. Even Romeo stabbing himself after he finds Juliet was a rash decision.
Sadly, in “defying” fate he actually brings it about. Romeo’s suicide prompts Juliet to kill herself, thereby ironically fulfilling the love’s tragic destiny. In conclusion, Romeo did love Juliet because he called her a holy shrine, he was determined to marry her as soon as he could and he took a poison vial just so he could be with her forever. This is a play of love and hate, and “Fortune and Fate.” In terms of fate, once the couple meets, there is no turning back. And the only problem that affects their “love at first sight” is not their love, but the hate of their

Romeo and Juliet By: William Shakespeare How much trouble would you go through to find love? At the beginning of the book Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Romeo decided to go to a Capulet 's party because he had seen that the girl he liked was on the guest list for the party. He was so in love with Rosaline but he knew she didn 't love him back so he then fell in love with Juliet. Later on in the story Romeo killed Mercutio, Tybalt, Paris, his mother, Juliet and himself. The main argument is that Romeo shouldn 't have went to the party, fall in love with another girl, and killed the 5 people including himself.
This story seems so outrageous and archaic. However, after reading the summary of the story provided in the article, I was reminded of the plotline of one of my favorite musicals, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. In this film, frustrated by not being able to woo any girls, a band of brothers kidnaps a group of townswomen to be their wives. While this movie makes fun of the actions of the brothers, in the end, the brothers do succeed in procuring wives. This idea that women are objects to be claimed at ones’ leisure is still existent in
Romeo unconsciously predicts that something bad might happen if he shows up at the party, where he meets Juliet. Romeo says it himself, so it’s fate that they meet. Their deaths are the “consequence” that he speaks of. Since they are supposed to be foes, the bitterness that starts the pathway to their ultimate tragedy is their first encounter. Romeo and Juliet’s first meet not only sparked a fiery romance between the two, it also dramatically affected the fight and tension between the Montagues and the
Romeo is infatuated because of his passionate and impulsive actions. His decisions to act irrationally brought him harm and later, caused his death. He relies on his passion rather than his common sense to make his decisions. If only he thought about the consequences, he would still be alive. When Romeo met Juliet at the Capulet party, he instantly fell in love with her.
In Shakespeare 's acclaimed romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, the death of the two main characters can be attributed to two things. Their love for each other, and the social expectations of their time. A love so powerful, yet unthinkable sustains irrational thinking and impulsive actions, and results in the suicides of Juliet and Romeo. Social expectations of their time only add fuel to the flames, in that it gives them cause to kill themselves and pressures them into it. The tragic death of the two lovers Romeo and Juliet could be the fault of their love for one another.
