Tragedy is all around us in the world. The tragedy of Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet is that so many people receive fault for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence is at fault because he tells Juliet to fake her death and he is unable to communicate this to Romeo. Fate is also to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
Are our lives already determined by fate? Or do our choices affect our lives. In William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet there are many tragic events, that seeme to happen by fate, but if fate wasn’t the cause then what or who was was the cause? Lord Capulet is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because he was one of the main people who kept the feud going, it was his party that Romeo crashed, and he was the one who was forcing Juliet to marry Paris, causing her to want to make rash decisions. Lord Capulet is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because he was one of the main people who kept the feud going This feud has been going on for years, Lord Capulet has been keeping it going it the prologue of act one it says “From ancient grudge break to new mutiny” and from what this is saying it hasn't been getting any better.
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know ' st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.”
“Tragic flaw… [can] be defined as a trait in a character leading to [their] downfall” (Editors). In many fictitious pieces, characters are given a flaw that leads to consequences. William Shakespeare incorporates the theme of tragic flaw in Romeo and Juliet, through his characters. Tragic flaw is demonstrated by Romeo who falls in love too easily, eventually leading to his death. It is also shown with Tybalt who is very stubborn and reckless, leading to his end.
The friar knows that the marriage will end in tragedy, but he marries them anyway, causing everything that happens later down the line to happen and leads to the death of these two young characters. The friar is a huge reason the whole set of problems happened, from marrying them, to setting up a weak plan and not having another incase the plan fails leading to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The deaths of Romeo and Juliet are the most iconic in the entire play, and the reasons these two lovers did kill themselves wasn’t just on one person. It was number of reasons, caused mostly by the three, Romeo, Lord Capulet, and the Friar Lawrence.
This displays her impulsive nature because it is unlikely that she would even know Romeo, let alone love him--only hours after they meet. Therefore, she is exaggerating the fact that she truly loves Romeo, and he is the only one she loves. Secondly, situational irony is shown in the two words “love” and “hate”. It contrasts the reader’s expectations in the way that an only love could allegedly never be the same person as a former mortal enemy. It exemplifies Juliet’s lack of thought before her actions she would have taken her time to think about attempting to hold a romantic relationship with her supposed mortal enemy if she was wiser.
In the book Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, there are endless themes relating to different topics. However, the topic of hate seems to be a recurring topic that isn’t payed as much attention to. Hate is futile because it pushes people away from each other, this theme is shown by characterizing Capulet and his uncaringness as responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. Not only did he threaten Juliet with disowning her if she refused to marry Paris, but he was also uncaring of her emotions, which led Romeo and Juliet to pursue their dangerous plan of running away. In the end, he lost Juliet, who never even married Paris.
and they were going to force her to marry Paris. They didn’t give her the freedom to grow old with the man she loves. Juliet became upset and had decided to take matters into her own hands and talk to Friar so she could be with Romeo. They had threatened to have her kicked out of the
This shows the further conflict in Hamlet and Ophelia 's relationship. Laertes also is struggles with Ophelia through her madness and now has a preeminent need for revenge on Hamlet. Laertes says, “Burn out the sense and virtue of mine eye!/ By heaven, thy madness shall be paid by weight”. Laertes cannot stand to see his sister this way. He then says he now has a more fitting use for revenge on Hamlet.
When Benvolio suggest that they go to the party Romeo should've said no because he knew that it was wrong because he's a Montague and it was Capulets party. Also, Romeo should of stayed away from Juliet when the nurse told him she was a Montague. By doing so, he could of avoided being banished and trying to get back together with Juliet which ending with them killing themselves. Last, romeo shouldn't of fought Tybalt. When he fought Tybalt to avenge Mercutio he ended up getting banished.
So he agreed to marry them because he wanted the Capulet and Montague fights to end as well. His intentions were to have a letter sent to Romeo so he would know that Juliet wasn’t actually dead. The letter never reached Romeo, but I don’t think it was Friar Johns fault because he wanted them to get married in the first place to bring the families together to end the feud. On the other hand I think that Lady Capulet should be punished for being so hard on Juliet and trying to force her to marry Paris. Especially when she didn’t like Paris
No matter how small of a part the 3 characters have in this book, they were all involved in the death. A quote from Richard Le Gallienne, “If Romeo and Juliet make a tragedy of it nowadays, they have
The fact that Romeo and Juliet where each from families that hated the other guaranteed they were doomed from the second they laid eyes on each other, so here death is the fault of the parents. In a way, if the Montagues and Capulet’s could’ve just been friends, all these deaths could’ve been avoided. Therefor the deaths were the parents were the parents fault, not the Friar’s. This is not accurate, because even if the families were best friends, Lord Capulet would have still wanted Juliet to marry Paris not Romeo , and they woul have gotten in a feud
The play which is set in Verona is a story about a long feud between the Montague and Capulet families. This feud causes tragic results for the main characters in the play, Romeo and Juliet.
