Lord Capulet’s own free will forced Romeo and Juliet to pursue actions, such as marriage, that inevitably resulted in their deaths, which is demonstrated through Shakespeare’s use of foreshadowing. In Verona, there are expectations for young girls that they marry a fine man and labor babies, especially in high-class families such as Montague and Capulet. In the Capulet family, Lord Capulet has prepared a bridegroom, Paris, for his fourteen year old daughter, Juliet. Although, Juliet refuses to marry Paris because she is secretly already married to Romeo, but her father does not know that. As a result of Juliet expressing that she does not want to marry Paris, Lord Capulet angrily replies to her disobedience, “But fettle your fine joints’ gainst
So many factors were in play that caused tragedy. If the families hadn’t had a rivalry, the kids wouldn’t have to hide their love. If they were open about their romance, Juliet wouldn’t have taken the poison, and then Romeo wouldn’t have taken his poison, Paris wouldn’t have killed himself, and Juliet wouldn’t have stabbed herself. In the passage, Romeo is expressing his despair of having to live without her, and he begs for a way to be reunited with his love once
Juliet seeks to avoid these arrangements as a result of Lord Capulet's intention for her to wed Paris. While Paris thinks she has been sobbing for her dead cousin Tybalt, she has actually been grieving over Romeo's exile. Paris never even gets the chance to speak to his potential wife, which says a lot about Capulet's choice. He initially thinks she should wait because she is too young, but he eventually decides to be married without talking to Juliet. He disregards her emotions and even goes so far as to threaten to disown her.
He shall not make me there a joyful bride...”. This demonstrates how Juliet feels about marrying Paris, but she could have just avoided this by actually telling the truth about her being married with Romeo. With all the evidence provided, it shows that Juliet was also to blame due to her not thinking about better decisions about handling her little problems that can be dealt with
This do I drink to thee” (Shakespeare, 258-259). From this evidence, it can inferred that if Paris never wanted to marry her in the first place, she would have never thought so seriously about “killing herself” with the poison. A following reason Paris should be blamed for their deaths,mostly Romeo’s death, is because he caused Romeo to feel sympathy and guilt for murdering Tybalt, causing him to further agree to killing himself. In “The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet”, “That murdered my love’s cousin—with which grief…must die” (Shakespeare,271). In this piece of text evidence, it is subtly revealed that Paris’ anger toward Romeo caused Romeo to feel more guilt and want to kill himself more than before.
Paris wants Romeo to “obey and go… for thou must die” because he doesn't want his loved one's tomb to be destroyed (5.3.57). Paris tries to show his dominance over Romeo through violence but ends up dead by the hands of Romeo. Paris is influenced by violence because he was consumed by the desire for dominance over his “wife’s murderer”. Dominance is known as a positive emotion which acts as the generator for violence.
That makes Juliet concerned because she likes Romeo. First, he tells Juliet to marry Paris which she doesn’t want to happen. This is found in Act 3 scene 5. Second, Lord Capulet rages at Juliet when he notices that she doesn’t want to marry Paris. He then tells Juliet that he will never see her again.
On top of that, Lord Capulet threatened for an expulsion of her. Lord Capulet being the unflinching and opinionated man he is, led to Juliet seeking the Friar’s help, allowing a muddle plan to be created. Following the plan, Juliet “agrees” to marry Paris. Lord Capulet, being extremely
Take thou this vial, being then in bed”(Act 4, Scene 1, Line 91-93). Juliet goes to the extreme by preferring to pretend to be dead so she does not have to marry Paris. These ‘wrong’ actions are all because Juliet sees the value in who Romeo is and that the idea of Paris is empty in the sight of love “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.” (Act 2, Scene 2, line 43-44).
This starts the love between the two lovers. Later, Paris is ready to marry Juliet so he tries to hasten the wedding causing Juliet to get desperate and take the potion. According to the story when she takes the potion Balthasar travels to Mantua giving false information that Juliet was dead. The main reason Paris was killed is when Romeo visits Juliet in the tomb and Paris is also there. When Romeo begs him to leave Paris stays and fights a desperate man who does not care about his own life thus making him even more dangerous.
She is able to deceive the Nurse from suspecting that she fell in love with Romeo. Furthermore, Juliet struggles with another problem when her parents decide that she was to marry the Count Paris when she was already married to Romeo. When Juliet refuses to marry Paris, she states, “I will not even marry yet, and when I do I swear it shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, rather than Paris.” (III.v.126). She is not obedient to her parents like she used to.
When they decided to get married her parents can’t know about it. Since her parents don 't know about the marriage, they arranged her to marry Paris. Paris seems to be a fantastic guy, but since Juliet is already married she cannot marry him. Juliet is very upset when she heard the news about the arranged marriage you could tell when she said, “O, bid me leap, rather than marry Paris.” Juliet absolutely didn 't want to marry Paris.
In dramatic literature, the characters are often responsible for the outcome. In Romeo and Juliet, guilt is drawn from every part of the play and affects the entire outcome of the play. Several characters are responsible for Romeo and Juliet's death. Those characters are the Capulets, Friar Lawrence, and Tybalt are all to blame for their deaths.
