Whether the Friar realizes it or not, he has just done something terrible that only strengthens the bond of these two lovers. This leads to several deaths along the way. This bond between Romeo and Juliet, fortified by Friar Lawrence and his hubris, causes a serious issue when Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, challenges Romeo to a duel. Romeo refuses to fight as they are now family by marriage and says, “… But love thee better than thou
Here Juliet means that when she learned Romeos name it was too late, she has fallen under a spell of love. There are a few negative thoughts about Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden relationship. Friar Lawrence even warns Romeo to be careful about the marriage of him and Juliet “These violent delights have violent ends” (Shakespeare 856). Friar means that this is a marriage between these two families filled with hatred along with this history between them, the happy couple won’t last for long, and surely this will end badly. Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865).
While Friar says and hints at many things about Romeo and Juliet’s love, a key phrase he says is, “These violent delights have violent ends/And in their triumph die, like fire and powder”(Shakespeare 2.6.9-10). An atmosphere that is seen throughout the play is how rushed and frantic Romeo and Juliet’s relationship seems to be. As Friar is validating their marriage, Romeo
While he is haunted by guilt, Macbeth has to secure his throne by murdering Banquo and Fleance. At the end of the feast which was set up for assassinating Banquo and his son, Macbeth is again terrified by the news that Fleance has fled and Banquo’s ghost will dried blood over his body. He said to the ghost: “Thou canst not say I did it. Never shake/ Thy gory locks at me.” (3.4.51-52) These reactions all showed his ambivalence and the hatred to
Juliet is able to be empathetic to her father’s temporary anger since she knew it is only a result of his deep love and support. Tybalt is shown to display signs of infuriation due to love when he discovers Romeo at a Capulet party. Capulet is hosting a gigantic party for anyone who is not a Montague, and plans to organize a fun experience for all. Tybalt, the nephew of Capulet, is not so pleased when he discovers Romeo, a Montague, has snuck into the party. He immediately wants to fight Romeo for disrespecting his family, but his uncle, Capulet, resists since he knows Romeo is respectable and he does not want to ruin the mood of the party.
This leads Juliet to fake her death to be with Romeo, but due to an misunderstanding, Romeo poisons himself. Throughout the play, due to love, various acts of impermanence strike Romeo and Juliet through the change of love, the loss of trust, and the disowning of family. Romeo shows the impermanence of love as he drops his affection for Rosaline. In the beginning of the play, Romeo, with a deep passion, loves Rosaline before Juliet. Romeo describes his love with Rosaline as, "One fairer than my love?
Mope around like a dreamer, not even bothering with plans for revenge, and I can say nothing—nothing at all—on behalf of a king whose dear life was stolen………….. Ah, revenge! What an ass I am, I’m so damn brave. My dear father’s been murdered and I’ve been urged to seek revenge by heaven and hell, and yet all I can do is stand around cursing like a whore in the streets!” (2.2.1640-1660). However, Hamlet ponders his first move in his revenge plot in this Act as well, coming up with the plan to make the actors perform something similar to his father’s murder to see if Claudius felt some sort of guilt. And as Hamlet predicted, Claudius seems to suffocate under the events on stage, yelling for the lights before storming out of the
The whole family including his wife/mother and father all defy the gods who they “worship” this act along with their rather guilt filled lives results in the tragic fate each of them meets. Hamartia is defined as tragic flaw or human failing and that accurately describes Oedipus’ situation and his lack of action to prevent his fate as Walton said, “Oedipus is so stricken at the thought of marrying his mother that he never thinks twice before killing an older man who stands in his way, even though the second part of the Oracle told him he would kill his father”(1). It is arguable that Oedipus did not deserve to die like this, but with such minimal effort to avoid this, it is hard to say
He failed his parental duty to take care of his child and his needs and as a result he got Elizabeth killed. Finally, Victor learns that he has been in the wrong the entire time so he pledges to end his creation even if its the death of him. “I, who irretrievably destroyed thee by destroying all thou lovedst. Alas! He is cold, he cannot answer me” (237).
Shakespeare describes how love can be risky because it can end up causing harm and damage to others. Love is risky in who you the person may be, and how both lives of the people have been, Shakespeare shows this in the play when Romeo and Juliet marry because of their feuding ancestors and families. “Come, come with me, and we will make short work, / For, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone / Till Holy Church incorporate two in one” (2.6.35-37), illustrates Shakespeare’s view that love is risky, which we can tell because Romeo and Juliet are being wed in secret. Shakespeare 's of damaging love is clear in Montague’s monologue, “Alas, my liege, my wife is dead tonight. / Grief of my son’s exile hath stopped her breath / what further woe conspires against mine age?” (5.3.218-20).
Meanwhile, Tybalt recognized Romeo. Blood boiled and his temper went up. Tybalt told Lord Capulet that he was going to beat up Romeo for crashing their party. Lord Capulet ordered him to relax and to leave Romeo alone. Romeo seemed to be a nice enough kid.
Romeo unconsciously predicts that something bad might happen if he shows up at the party, where he meets Juliet. Romeo says it himself, so it’s fate that they meet. Their deaths are the “consequence” that he speaks of. Since they are supposed to be foes, the bitterness that starts the pathway to their ultimate tragedy is their first encounter. Romeo and Juliet’s first meet not only sparked a fiery romance between the two, it also dramatically affected the fight and tension between the Montagues and the
So, Mercutio decided to brawl with Tybalt. Mercutio’s ignorant decision to duel Tybalt led him to his own death and grief of friends and family. Mercutio was not aware of the consequences he would be facing because of his own decision. He announces in the text, “Ask for/me to-morrow, and you shall find me a grave man. I/am peppered, I warrant, for this world.
