13-15). With this statement, Mercutio cluelessly foreshadows Romeo’s death without realizing it. Even though Mercutio believes that Romeo is lovesick for Rosaline still, since he doesn’t know about Juliet, his accusation was correct. As stated from the beginning, Romeo and Juliet will fall in love and die together because of the
After killing Tybalt , Romeo cries “O, I am fortune's fool” (Shakespeare lll.l.142. )which means that fortune ordained this and it was just bad luck. He couldn’t have prevented it. His emotions lead to his misfortune or event leading to his downfall and death. Romeo’s misfortune was falling in love with Juliet.
In theory, this should have caused Juliet to feel pure hatred towards Romeo. Ironically, Tybalt 's death brought the couple even closer together in love. However, the Capulet family did not know of the secret relationship and wanted to put Romeo to his death. Tybalt 's death affected each member of the Capulet family and moved the plot closer to its tragic ending. As Tybalt 's legacy, Romeo was exiled from Verona, and for a time, could not see Juliet anymore.
However, many small decisions made by numerous people caused Romeo and Juliet to end tragically. To begin with, the most guilty to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet would be the family feud. At the start of the play, the audience is introduced to a long-standing feud between the houses. If Capulet and Montague had not been at war with each other Romeo and Juliet 's marriage would not have had to be done in secret. The Prince exclaims, “See what a scourge is laid upon your hate,” (Act Ⅴ, scene 3, Line 302).
Destiny or Decisions Everywhere, teenagers make impulsive decisions that either positively or negatively affect them. In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by playwright William Shakespeare, the main characters, Romeo and Juliet, are family foe’s that mistakenly fall in love. The unexpierienced, young couple tries to develop their secret relationship too fast, and the play ends after the lover’s traumatic suicides. In the play, the couple mentions how their relationship is “star-crossed” in that they are not fated to be together. However, these teenagers have been in many serious circumstances giving rise to their deaths and have overlooked the fact that their choices are what mainly determined their futures.
Through the predominant influences of certain characters, inconsistency of decision making, and secretiveness amongst the characters, these events quickly lead to the grievous incident of the play. All the way from past hatred and persuasive friends, to emotionally driven decisions such as Romeo’s desire to be married and his vengeance, the play concluded with potions that provoked counter outcomes. Romeo and Juliet displayed the risks they were willing to take in the name of love, but in the end, poor choices took responsibility for the continuous occurrences that lead to dreadful ends; however, opposed to the idea of fate, or a stronger force guiding the character’s actions. With this, the play closed with the poisonous idea of the love that Romeo and Juliet shared, including all that they would sacrifice to have a chance at a life
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.
Romeo and his friend Benvolio ran into Peter a servant from the Capulets that had the list of names of the people who were going to attend the mask party and Romeo helped Peter read the list and he decided he wanted to attend the party. What Romeo did was that he wore a mask so no one recognize him and a Montague. When he got there he saw Juliet and fell in love with her the moment he laid his eyes on her but juliet 's cousin Tybalt recognized romeo and wanted to kill him on the spot but Lord Capulet insisted that Tybalt did not disrupt the part because the prince would get mad. After that Romeo goes over to Juliet and tells her his feelings towards her and they kiss. The nurse(juliet 's) informs Romeo that Juliet is a Capulet and that bothered him a lot.
It is safe to say most people have at least heard of or have a brief understanding of The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. If not, the story follows two young lovers who- through a series of unfortunate events- end up separated This ends with the infamous climax of Juliet faking her death, Romeo not faking his own death, and Juliet actually killing herself. While one could argue that the fates of Romeo and Juliet could be caused by either their own decisions or luck, I have substantial evidence that the former is more responsible. In order to have a higher understanding of the plot, there are a few things to know. There are two houses feuding in the land of Verona called Capulet and Montague.
In a play like Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare which is a classic, dating back to the 16th century, it can be expected that discussions have happened based on the question: Did Romeo and Juliet cause their ultimate demise based on choices they made, or does fate take control of their life the second they meet? Because people are able to argue both sides of the case, there has never been a definite answer on whether or not fate, or poor choices takes place in this Shakespearean play. Although fate is something that definitely is shown in this play, poor choices ultimately cause the death of Romeo and Juliet. Every action that someone makes affects someone else, like dominoes that continue to fall until eventually, everyone has fallen. Whether or not they be intentional or accidental, every action has an equal opposite reaction.
