“A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, Whose misadventured piteous overthrows. Doth with their death bury their parents ' strife. The fearful passage of their death-marked love” (Prologue). The agonizing story of Romeo and Juliet is abounding with plot twists and destructive decisions. The star-crossed lovers’ deaths were unavoidable, no matter what decisions led up to them. Without a doubt, the most destruction was made by Mercutio. Mercutio was Romeo’s best friend, which led to Romeo’s underestimation transform into angry rage once Tybalt killed Mercutio. His decision to fight Tybalt put himself amid an ongoing quarrel between Romeo and Tybalt, causing tension between the Capulets and Montagues, and disconnecting Romeo from Juliet.
Four hundred thousand deaths, six hundred thousand attempts, and two hundred thousand considerations in a single year. The seeming epidemic that is teen suicide plagues the minds of teachers, students, friends, neighbors, and parents. Despite this wide range of victims, teenage suicide most directly affects the parents of these children, who commonly feel an overwhelming sense of guilt due to their inability to help their children. However, to many it appears obvious that there are not many things parents can do to prevent suicide, for many reasons. Furthermore, William Shakespeare proves this with his tragedy “Romeo and Juliet” in which two teenagers take their lives. In other words, Shakespeare expertly portrays two young people battling
Each and every day, people make sacrifices for their loved ones. Maybe they choose to get up earlier in order to do chores or miss an important meeting so that they would have time for each other. There is no greater example of sacrifices for loved ones than in Romeo and Juliet however, where Shakespeare explores two star-crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, who come from two families that have a deep hatred towards each other. The pair meet each other, secretly wed, and then in order to stay together, commit suicide out of despair and distress. Through Romeo and Juliet’s acts of defiance and sacrifice, Shakespeare proves that while hate has the power to destroy and kill, love is even more powerful as it has the power to transform. Instead of conforming to the expectations their family and society places on them, Romeo and Juliet choose to follow their hearts and stay together. Romeo and Juliet also both give up welfare and security in order to be with each other and ultimately give up their lives, the greatest sacrifice.
In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, various characters show how pure intentions can lead to deadly consequences. Although the title of the play implies that Romeo and Juliet is a love story, in reality, it is a terrible tragedy. Misapplied virtues turn to vice when Romeo interferes in Mercutio and Tybalt’s duel, when Balthasar delivers the tragic news of Juliet’s death to Romeo, and when Friar Lawrence agrees to marry Romeo and Juliet.
Healthy and successful relationships are based on a mutual respect, appreciation and a deep love rooted in trust. Most couples establish a sustainable relationship over a long period of time, rather than fixating on physical attraction and carnal desires. In truth, love is often mistaken for lust. In Romeo and Juliet, one can see the misinterpretation of infatuation for true love. Lust overcomes the couple’s actions and causes them to continuously make rash decisions without any consideration of the consequences. Romeo becomes infatuated with Juliet and even before meeting her, claims to love her. However, his love is based on her beauty which causes him to uncontrollably profess his love for her: “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight, For
In the end Romeo and Juliet did they actually have to kill themselves, their answer is yes they did. Romeo and Juliet caused their own death based on their actions. Because Romeo and Juliet did not communicate their love they had for eachother, they had to lie and keep secrets when confronted, thus leading to their demise. Romeo is too quick too think, Juliet got scared easily when she was confronted, and they both did not want to tell anyone they loved each other.
Romeo and Juliet’s relationship has often been romanticized as being authentic while his love for Rosaline has been depicted as being a superficial infatuation. This is what many die-hard romantics want to believe; however, the text represents Romeo’s love for Rosaline as a genuine one—at least on Romeo’s part. In the beginning of the play, Romeo lashes out at love’s cruelty as do many heartbroken individuals. In Act I Scene I, the depressed Romeo describes love as a deadly poison, a smoke, a swollen sea, a madness, and a choking gall. When he describes love as a “smoke,” this evokes images of a choking black cloud of doom. Everyone who has tasted the bitterness of love knows how gloomy the world feels. Romeo’s hurt stems from authentic feelings
Author Stieg Larsson once wrote, “Impulsive actions led to trouble, and trouble could have unpleasant consequences.” In the play Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, each characters have a flaw that are used against their circumstances. Very rarely does a character in this story thought about the consequences of their actions before they did something, resulting in devastating outcomes. Granted, the main characters of the story have a noticeable weakness that contributes to their tragic ends. Romeo and Juliet both have a fatal flaw of being too impulsive when it comes to love and decisions.
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare has toyed with the emotions of its audience members for centuries. The play’s main characters, Romeo and Juliet, love one another in spite of the feud between their families and later on, in the wallows of grief, each take their own life. While the characters both meet their end tragically, it was their choices that realistically led them down that path. The cause of the two “star-crossed lovers” final end is not due to fate or destiny, but by their own foolish hands.
In my opinion I think that the feud between the two main families, the Capulets and the Montagues, is the most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death. The conflict between these two families is so distasteful that it causes Romeo and Juliet even more of a struggle as they try to find and keep their love. This conflict between the Capulets and the Montagues has been going on for a very long time and neither side is willing to make up for whatever may have happened in the past. Because of this a strong dislike is portrayed when someone sees a person from the opposite side. If the family feud wouldn’t have existed Romeo and Juliet would not have any large reason to hide their relationship. Throughout the play them together is shown as forbidden
“ There was never story more full of misery than this tale of Romeo and Juliet” This tear-jerking love story is known for its, tragic and devastating ending. The long going feud between the houses, keeping the lovers apart, causing the story to fall into a downward spiral that led to Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. All this misfortune led to Romeo drinking the vial of poison, and Juliet piercing her skin with his dagger just to follow her beloved. The death of the two star-crossed lovers is often mistaken for a choice that they made on their own. Even though Romeo and Juliet took their lives on their own will, fate and the long lasting family feud is to blame for the tragic death of the two star-crossed lovers.
