He also leaves Juliet alone in the tomb after she awakens to find her beloved Romeo dead. Friar Lawrence is a moral man, but his hubris leads to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo considers the Friar someone he can confide in, and he tells the Friar of his newfound love for Juliet. The Friar’s excessive pride allows him to agree to wed Romeo and Juliet, hoping he can bring the Montagues and Capulets together, though these families hatred spans generations.
Romeo blames fate, or fortune, for what has happened to him. Him slaying Tybalt was his fate. This then leads to probably the most fatal and important part of Act III… The prince banishing Romeo. Because of this only do Romeo and Juliet die, because Romeo is in another city they can’t communicate properly and the two star-crossed lovers commit suicide.
The acts of violence throughout the play comes in three different forms; murder, suicide, and combat. Polonius is unexpectedly murdered, Ophelia goes mad and commits suicide, and Hamlet provokes a battle with Laertes that ends poorly for both men. All three of these violent acts can be traced back to clouded judgements, indecisiveness, anger, revenge, and heartbreak. Shakespeare created such acts of violence to keep the readers on their toes and informed, but also to invoke questions. Is Hamlet Insane?
And in my temper soft’ned valor’s steel!” (3.1.115-117). In this quote, Romeo is expressing how Juliet’s beauty weakened him. He feels almost a hatred towards her for making him cowardly and not able to save Mercutio’s life. Since being strong is an expected characteristic of men, Romeo feels that the absence of his bravery is to blame for the tragedy.
It 's only after he storms the castle with a band of armed men that he starts asking questions —unlike Hamlet, who asks a whole lot of questions before he finally gets around to avenging his father 's death. Here 's the funny thing, though: both of them end up dead, in exactly the same way, and at each other 's hands. So, is Laertes ' method really any better than Hamlet 's? It is clear that Hamlet is the winner in the cause that he actually get to stab and poison Claudius, which is his But toward the end of the play, he recognized his fault and ask for forgiveness.
After Macbeth murdered Duncan and drove away the two princes. He felt no happiness or tranquility. He lived the rest of his life in nightmares and fears which denounced his actions. He realized how unscrupulous his actions were and his souls is long huanted by it. After the murder, he does not dare to put the dagger back.
After hearing of Juliet’s death, Romeo travels to where Juliet lays death-like. On the way he is confronted by Paris who exclaims that Romeo “must die” (5.3.57) and that he will “apprehend [Romeo] for a felon” (5.3.69). Romeo tells him to “tempt not a desperate man” (5.3.59) because he wants to “put not another sin upon [his] head” (5.3.62). But Paris provokes Romeo and they fight until Romeo kills Paris. Romeo’s love for Juliet makes him desperate to see her; but when Paris will not let him do what his heart desires and see Juliet, he has no choice to do what is necessary, killing Paris.
This can be demonstrated when he slays Tybalt after he killed Mercutio, saying “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” ( Shakespeare ,Romeo and Juliet, 3.1.134). As demonstrated in this quote, this vengeful nature that Romeo acquires only leads to more problems. ated many problems and set up both of tIn this instance, the desire to avenge Mercutio leads to the banishment of Romeo, the downfall of Tybalt, conflict in the heart of Juliet, and the mutual family hatred growing ever more. Though it would have been much harder to take the difficult choice, and not fight, it would have certainly have saved the lives of both involved, and also prevent the death of Juliet.
However, Romeo does not know that and therefore is going to Juliet’s tomb to kill himself with her. This creates a very suspenseful tone because all of the audience still wants Romeo and Juliet to live, even though the audience was told from the beginning that they were not going to win. Therefore suspense is all around because nobody wants Romeo to kill himself and everyone is just waiting for Juliet to wake up. Shakespeare also uses this dramatic irony when Romeo is saying that Juliet is the “Paramour” of death, meaning she is having an affair with death. Romeo is only saying this because of how well he thinks death is treating her and her looks.
He chooses to marry Juliet only hours after he first lay eyes on her, and this rush into marriage is a reason Romeo and Juliet die at the end of the play. If they were not married, they would not have been so attached, and may not have killed themselves when they saw that the other was dead. In addition, Prince Escalus informs the feuding Capulets and Montagues that they will be punished for fighting each other, but Romeo ends up ignoring this rule and fights Tybalt. When Romeo interferes with Tybalt and Mercutio’s fight, getting Mercutio killed, he is filled with rage at Tybalt. Despite knowing that he will be punished for fighting and harming Tybalt, when Tybalt tells Romeo he is going to die, Romeo responds saying, “This shall determine that.”
The impulse decisions made by Romeo and Juliet and the actions displayed for their “love” are emotionally charged and are based on initial feelings, therefore, their love is not true. Romeo and Juliet both have affection for each other, but it is truly only from the physical appearances they base their love on. When Romeo sees Juliet for the first time at the Capulet party, the first thought he had was that he loved her. True love isn’t based on just looks and looks were the only thing that Romeo could see at that point. When Romeo asked Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet, Friar says “Young men’s love then lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes,” (Act 2, Scene 3).
"…When confronted with stressful or emotional decisions, [teenagers] are more likely to act impulsively, on instinct, without fully understanding or analyzing the consequences of their actions" (Dr. David Fassler). Teenagers, past and present, are known for making spontaneous and sometimes senseless decisions. Romeo from the play “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare is no different. Romeo is a teenager who makes numerous impulsive decisions that have disastrous consequences.

He exhibits this tragic flaw when he marries Juliet, when he kills Tybalt, and when he commits suicide. Firstly, when he decides to marry Juliet, he is being impulsive.

To begin with Romeo Kills Tybalt When Romeo sees his friend Mercutio slain by Tybalt, he express his anger by declaring “Alive in triumph, and Mercutio slain? Away to heaven respective lenity, And fire-eyed fury be my conduct now! Now, Tybalt, take the ‘villain’ back again That late thou gavest me, for Mercutio’s soul Is but a little way above our heads, Staying for thine to keep him company. Either thou or I, or both, must go with him” (3.1.129-136).
