“Here’s to my love! O the apothecary! The drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die” says Romeo Montague (act 5 scene 3 line 119.) This quote is said when Romeo is at Juliet’s grave getting ready to drink the poison because he thinks Juliet is dead and he wants to be with his love forever.
I don 't like that idea, so I 'll stay with you. And I will never leave this tomb. Here, here I 'll remain with worms that are your chamber-maids.”...This proves that since Romeo was deeply depressed and that he killed himself because he thought Juliet killed herself for him because they have feelings of true love for each other.In Act 5 , scene 3, Juliet says, “Oh, noise? Then I 'll be quick. Oh, good, a knife!
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence should be punished. Friar Lawrence gave Juliet the potion to fake her death. “Take thou this vial, being then in bed…” (Romeo and Juliet 4.1.96) Friar gave Juliet this potion so everyone had thought that she was dead. This caused Romeo to kill himself and leading up to Juliet then killing herself. Everything from that point on did not go well at all.
He decides to commit suicide next to her alive-dead body. Juliet wakes up and asks Friar where Romeo is and he replies that some higher power has taken over their original plans. Because of fate, Friar does not make it to Juliet 's tomb on time. Romeo kills himself before the friar can tell him that Juliet is not really dead. This is not the friar 's fault, it is fate that he did not get there on time.
Shakespeare’s portrayal of Juliet in this manner reverses traditional gender roles and by setting up a dramatic final scene in which Juliet makes the ultimate sacrifice for Romeo. When Juliet sees Romeo lying dead in the vault, she rushes to him, sees that he had died of poison, and says, “O churl, drunk all, and left no friendly drop/ To help me after!” (5.3.168). Without hesitation Juliet decides that life without Romeo is not worth living, unlike Romeo who shows fear when he waffles over the concept of death. Once Juliet realizes that there is no poison left for her,
Also, in the prologue, it states that their love was "The fearful passage of their death" (Prologue.9). Both of these quotes show us that the love of these two was destined to end tragically. The masquerade party was, above all, the most important event. The fact that Romeo was wearing a mask with his face hidden, allowed Juliet to fall in love with him before she knew his identity. If Juliet had known who Romeo was, she probably would not have fallen in love with him.
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.
Recreating a classic story such as Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet from stage to film is a difficult task, but both Franco Zeffirelli and Baz Luhrmann were able to execute the challenge. This classic play is based on the story of “a pair of star-crossed lovers” (Rom. 1.0.6) who fall in love despite the feud happening between their families. Sadly, even with the undying love they have for each other, their love story ends in a tragedy. The story of Romeo and Juliet is a typical love at first sight plot but includes various other aspects that make the story interesting and different to other movies or stories with the same basic plot line.
Instead of taking time to consider what she should do in this situation, she acts impulsively and takes the sleeping potion. This one action causes Romeo and Paris to battle to the death in her tomb, Romeo killing himself, and then her taking her own life after seeing Romeo dead. Romeo and Juliet may seem like they are really in love, but their impulsive and reckless actions tell us that they are not really in
In this scene, we can truly see the impact Juliet's “death” has brought upon Romeo. True love is shown because because of Romeo killing himself so that he would metaphorically be with Juliet forever. Romeo made the ultimate sacrifice of taking his own life to find and keep the love he shared with Juliet. Similar to Romeo's death, Juliet shows the same impact of losing a loved one as Romeo did when Juliet was supposedly dead. Juliet knows she won’t be happy without Romeo so she also takes her own life, “yea, noise?
In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, it is Romeo 's spontaneous action and ignorance to dreams that kills himself, not fortune. The emotional Romeo throughout the play, lets emotions guide him. Due to the death of Mercutio, Romeo is blinded by anger causing him to irresponsibly kill Tybalt. Romeo let his Emotion guide his next action, which was a reckless action leading to the exile of himself. He also believed Balthasar when Balthasar says Juliet died, Romeo then spontaneously decided he will die with Juliet, Creating the Tragic ending of the play.
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
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.
Had he brought the letter to Romeo himself Romeo would have been at the tomb when Juliet woke up and they would have run away to Mantua together. Instead, Romeo got to the tomb thinking that Juliet was dead and killed himself. When Juliet awoke she also killed herself, seeing that Romeo was dead. They did end up being together, but in death. Their destiny was still fulfilled, just not the way it should have been.
