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.
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
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.”
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. Romeo, not receiving the letter, heard of Juliet’s death and came back to Verona to die in her arms.
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.
Looking around a highschool classroom and studying the faces of the students. Wondering about the choices they have made, universal choices that will permanently affect them and their future, like ripples on the water of a usually still lake. Contemplating where they would be if previous decisions had been decided in a different manner, curious of where and who they would be. The decisions that they have previously made will continue to ripple and affect their lives. It truthfully really leaves a person to wonder, why humans are unable to base decisions off of other people’s mistakes whether fictional or real.
