/ ...he is not the flower of courtesy” (40). The nurse is now saying that she thinks Juliet made the wrong choice choosing Romeo and she should have chosen her family's recommendation, Paris. After the news of Romeo being exiled is delivered to Juliet, Juliet breaks down. The nurse then tells Juliet she will “find Romeo/ to comfort [her]” (52). The nurse once again takes action to bring Romeo
Romeo decided that he was in love with Juliet upon sight without knowing who she was (Shakespeare 924). This was a terrible choice Romeo had literally no idea who she was and this could have stopped the whole conflict of the play. Romeo then ignored his dreams which he believed told his destiny (Shakespeare 921-1009). While if Romeo listened to these dreams which he believed told the future he would have been much more cautious because he would know that he was going to die prematurely. Also, by him listening to his dreams he would have made either little or no poor choices later in the play which results in his death.
The Capulets forced Juliet to marry Paris, the constant fighting made them want to keep the marriage secret, and made Romeo and Juliet to scared to say anything. A big reason is the parents are pressuring Juliet with a marriage she doesn 't even want to do. “if you don 't act like my daughter you can beg starve and die in the streets”. Act 3 scene 5 line 193. This shows how much pressure is on her making her freak out and fear
She just thought of herself and how she would be with Romeo. They both should have stopped what they were doing and thought about their actions, but hatred was making their minds think another way. Hatred drove Romeo and Juliet to be secretive, lie, communicate poorly, and to not think clearly. The fear of showing some hope that the hatred is gone influenced a friar to do some bad things. Friar Laurence was the one who secretly married Juliet but for the reason that it might put an end to the ancient feud; however, he lacked good judgment during this time.
First, Juliet disobeyed her parents when they wanted her to marry Romeo. Following this, she decided to pretend to die leave her family to have a life with Romeo. In the end, Juliet did kill herself after she found Romeo dead, which shows a more significant loyalty to him instead of her family. This goes against the typical bond of loyalty between a family and accentuates the love between Romeo and Juliet. It shows the power of true love, and how it can shift one’s loyalty, even between one’s own family.
Personal desire and choosing to conform is a battle between right and wrong, shown in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, because Juliet chooses Romeo over everyone else, pursuing what she wants to make herself happy, but everyone else in the family views this as wrong. Juliet wants to do the right thing, which is doing what makes her happy. Lady Capulet wants to know Juliet’s idea of getting married but Juliet does not want to get married, which upsets her family and the nurse. “It is an honour that I dream not of.” (Act 1, Scene 3, line 68). Juliet feels that she is too young and too immature to get married, she wants to explore what makes her happy.
When Juliet tried to convince her father to cancel the wedding, Lord Capulet threatened to disown her. Juliet, lost as the Garden of Eden, seeks my help to repair her situation. For if I am unable to do so, she shall commit the sinful act to an eternity in the underworld by putting a knife through her heart. With a cloud of ignorance covering my eyes, I foolishly gave the naive Juliet a vile that makes her sleep for forty-eight hours making her seem dead. With all of Verona believing the young Capulet was deceased, I sent out a letter to the exiled Romeo saying his wife was alive and only sleeping.
Shakespeare wrote numbers of plays throughout his lifetime, just a few being Hamlet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth and presumably his most popular; Romeo and Juliet. This successful play is a tale of two feuding families and star-crossed lovers, the young teens in love go by the name of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. The
Juliet doesn’t want to get remarried and taking a sleeping potion that was given to her by Friar. Romeo, thinking she died, he wanted to kill himself to be with Juliet and he did. Juliet found out his death and wanted to forever be with him like what Romeo thought, so she kills herself. Juliet and Romeo we can blame for their own deaths, because of the eventful events that built up to their deaths, it is clear that we can blame them because they caused their own deaths as long as Friar and his lack of guidance. Overall Blame is a huge thing in Romeo and Juliet, we can blame the two characters themselves, and Friar for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
Here, Juliet said, “Go ask his name-if he be married,/My grave is like to be my wedding-bed (I,V,136-137).” In other words, Juliet swears that if she doesn’t get married to Romeo, she will die with her grave as her wedding bed. Just like the second example that was stated, Juliet (just like Romeo) have a desperate tone since they want each other so badly. The ironic thing is that they just met each other and are already choosing to marry one another, even though they just saw each other one time. It is also ironic to see all the events happen so quickly at once. Here, Shakespeare foreshadows Juliet’s death.
