This then leads to Romeo coming back to Juliet. After Romeo gets word that Juliet is dead he rushes back to Juliet. Romeo buys poison, that will kill him, and brings it to Juliet's tomb to die with her. In the play Romeo tells Juliet he loves her than drinks the poison to die with his sweet Juliet. “Here’s to my love!
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to talk to someone but you couldn 't due to problems in the past? If you can relate to this, I would recommend reading Romeo and Juliet. In the story Romeo and Juliet, Lord and Lady Montague and Lord and Lady Capulet are ultimately at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Due to lord and lady capulet and montague continuing their everlasting feud, romeo and juliet both ended up committing suicide. Both romeo and juliet believed that they could not live without one another so when romeo mistakenly thought juliet died, he killed himself which led to the death of juliet.
Choices and Consequences in Romeo & Juliet (ROUGH DRAFT) Many choices in Romeo & Juliet lead to Romeo and Juliet’s deaths, but the most responsible are the decisions of Romeo and Juliet. Even though the choices of people like Friar Laurence, Tybalt, and Lord Capulet lead to the deaths of Romeo & Juliet, the choices Romeo and Juliet make throughout the play ultimately leads to their death because of Romeo and Juliet’s decision to be married and Romeo’s decision to go to the party. Romeo’s choice to go the Capulet party is the most influential and contributing to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Due to Romeo’s depression Mercutio & Benvolio convince him to go to the Capulet party. Romeo agrees to go and sees Juliet, Lord Capulet’s daughter and falls in love instantly with “her true beauty” (Shakespeare.I.v.51) and pulls her into the other room where they kiss.
But as she drinks the potion we find out Romeo did not get the letter to meet her at the tomb and soon finds out she has died. Knowing this Romeo goes to the burial tomb to see Juliet, with him he meets Paris. Paris knows Romeo as a killer and draws on Romeo, but Romeo slains Paris. When he finds Juliet he sees her cheeks are red and her body is warm, almost full of life. Little does Romeo know she is about to wake up due to the sleeping potions 48-hour time limit.
This is ironic because by doing this Tybalt ends up killing Mercutio. He takes revenge for Mercutio, and kills Tybalt. This causes Romeo to get banished out of Verona, where he can't be together with Juliet . Later in the play, Juliet wakes up and finds out from Friar Lawrence that Romeo is dead. She decides to kill herself instead of running away.
As a result, Juliet was so repulsed by the idea of marrying Paris since she had had the chance to fall in love with Romeo. The only way to avoid the marriage was for Juliet to drink the potion, causing Romeo to think Juliet was dead, and ultimately resulting in the death of both Romeo and Juliet. Therefore, Lord Capulet should have either said that Juliet would have to
Tybalt tells Romeo to fight him, but since Romeo is now married to Juliet, he says that he can’t. To this, Mercutio responds with,“O calm, dishonorable, vile submission!”(3.1.74), and then proceeds to fight Tybalt on Romeo’s behalf in defense of the Montague name. It’s clear through Mercutio’s rage felt diction towards Romeo such as “dishonorable” and “vile” that he believes Romeo’s efforts to make peace are acts of betrayal to his own family. Because of Mercutio’s brash actions in the act of defending his family’s honor, he ends up being injured and killed by Tybalt, all because he felt so much hate that he couldn’t stand down like Romeo had. Mercutio’s death made Romeo blindly angry to the point where he killed Tybalt, who was technically a part of his family.
In their relationship, Juliet is more dominant, and Romeo is more submissive. These attributes are commonly associated with the opposite gender, and Shakespeare uses this exchange of traits to accentuate the irregularity of the situation being represented. The more dramatic features, though, are Romeo’s, and Shakespeare shows how difficult it is for him not to fit in the box of “being a man”. When Tybalt came to kill Romeo, Mercutio interfered, and it ended up costing him his life. Due to the death of his close friend, Romeo grew enraged and decided to “be a man” and get revenge on Tybalt.
Again, the fact that Friar John was quarantined shows how just the tiniest error, like going to the wrong friend to join you on a journey, can ruin all plans. (Shakespeare 5.2) In this scene, Friar Laurence explains how it’s very dangerous that the letter was not sent, as Romeo then has no idea that Juliet isn’t really dead and that she is faking her death. This, of course, leads to Romeo’s death, and then shortly after, Juliet’s death. What was supposed to be a plan to escape and live happily ever after as a married couple, goes horribly wrong and ends in the deaths of the two people the plan was made for in the first place. Another somewhat minor mistake that changes the future is Romeo and Juliet’s mistake to pursue their love.
Body Juliet reacted impulsively and immaturely when informed of Romeo’s banishment, this was part of the cause of both of their deaths. Initially Juliet’s first response to the events were to revile Romeo, referring to him as a "serpent heart, hid with a flow'ring face!" Calling him contradicting names such as a "fiend angelical," which is an angelic devil. Juliet was in a frantic condition and was thoroughly against Romeo for a period of time until the nurse began to revile him, calling him names similar to the ones Juliet had mentioned earlier in the play. Almost instantly, Juliet contradicted her previous comments by saying that Romeo was "not born to shame" She even went to the point of backing up Romeo that she believed her cousin would have killed Romeo regardless, calling her cousin a "villain."
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.
Juliet doesn’t want to marry him because she is already married to Romeo, so she and the Friar devise a plan to let Romeo and Juliet live happily ever after. This plan is for Juliet to drink a potion which simulates death so that she will be buried in the family tomb where Romeo can come and visit her. This plan works, Romeo is in the tomb waiting for Juliet to wake up, but someone is coming and Juliet hasn’t woke up yet, so Romeo drinks poison and dies.
