Romeo calls himself “Fortune’s Fool” and realizes that he is going to have to face a punishment for his actions, that are of course caused by fate (3.1.142). Later when Romeo hears of Juliet’s death he blames fate and tries to kill himself, “Is it e’en so?-Then I deny you, stars!” (5.1.25). In this example Romeo is taking responsibility for his past actions by defying fate and taking things into his own hands. Juliet is also a naïve and impulsive girl that
One of the most tragic events in the whole play is the death of both Romeo and Juliet this happens because of Romeo’s mistakes. Romeo is informed that his wife, the love of his life has died so on impulse he decides to end his life to be with her, this is Romeo 's first mistake. After conflict with Paris, Romeo drinks the poison he has acquired, thus killing himself, if he had waited or even grieved her death then the play would 've ended differently. Juliet not really being dead awakes to find her husband the love of her life dead next to
The turning point in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet occurs when Romeo kills Tybalt, this event leads to other complications throughout act three. The first complication that the reader encounters is when Romeo gets banished. This is a complication of the play because Romeo has just married Juliet and now they will not be able to see each other. In this act Juliet says, “ ‘Tybalt is dead and Romeo is banishèd/That banishèd, that word “banishèd” ’ ”(3.2.123-124). This complication contributes to the mood shift because Juliet is getting beaten down by the word ‘banishèd’ and she just cannot take it.
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.” when he finds out that Juliet is dead, but doesn’t know she faked her death. Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man.
Romeo thinks that his blurred sense of reality due to romanticism has let Mercutio die to Tybalt. Romeo furiously states, “[His] very friend, hath got this mortal hurt / In [his] behalf. [His] reputation stained / With Tybalt’s slander…” (III.1.115-117). This shows how complicated Romeo is, from being dramatic about being romantic and then immediately becoming very serious and furious at Tybalt for the death of his friend Mercutio. The drama from Romeo and Juliet mainly comes from the complexity of all the different characters in the play.
So in this case the characters experience the same things but shakespeare made it into his own tragedy. In a shakespearean tragedy it contains, the story of a seemingly heroic figure whose major character flaw causes the story to end with a tragic downfall. Shakespeare 's use of dramatic structure, especially his use and placement of minor characters, and the use of subplots to make the story. In this case his characters where romeo and juliet, they had a very traumatic experience before their deaths. That plot of romeo and juliet wasn 't so original he changed minor parts so it was an original but it wasn 't his idea.
There are many events during Act 3, Scene 1 but a particular aspect that outlines drama and suspension was the dramatic irony and Shakespeare’s crafty input of foreshadowing as both Tybalt and Mercutio are slain. Evidence from the text, a statement made by Romeo is, “This shall determine that,” which commence a duel between Romeo and Tybalt over Mercutio’s death; and Tybalt falls. As Tybalt dies, the audience know something that the rest of the characters on the stage do not. As Romeo has killed his wife’s cousin, the drama increases and their marriage is foreshadowed to result unhappily. As well as the death of Tybalt, the death of Mercutio who was the unofficial comedian in Romeo’s group of friends and a well liked character, the audience realise that all the light heartedness dies along with him.
In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt is responsible for his own death because he has a history of killing, he has an attitude that instigates on problems, and he has grudges against Romeo. Tybalt is at fault for his own death because he has killed other people before. Romeo exclaims to Tybalt, after Tybalt killed Mercutio, “He’s alive and victorious, and Mercutio’s dead?” (3.1.84). In this quote, Romeo is wailing that a great person was just killed by Tybalt. He thinks Tybalt shouldn’t be alive
179-84). The Prince is angry that the feud between the two families has led to the murder of his relative. He tells Romeo that if he does not leave immediately and not return that he will be put to death. Romeo is not at all grateful that his life has been spared and says “There is no world without Verona walls, but purgatory torture, hell itself ...Then “banishment,” is death misterm’d. Calling death “banishment”.” (3.2.
In act 3 after Tybalt’s and Mercutio’s deaths, Benvolio tells Romeo that the prince will probably punish him with a death sentence if he get caught and he should flee away quickly. Romeo’s reply was “O, I am fortune’s fool” (3.1.132). Romeo here is saying that he is destined for bad luck and misfortune all his life which is a reference to the prologue where it says that Romeo and Juliet are destined for bad luck and that their deaths will eventually lead to peace between their families. In short, Romeo is once again blaming fate for the bad decision he made about killing Tybalt, his cousin. In a smilier way, in act 1 Romeo has shown that he truly believes that his life is controlled by destiny and fate when he talked about a dream that he had with Benvolio and Mercutio before heading to the
