Romeo was in love with Rosaline and just got over her. Mercutio thought talking about her would bring him back. If Mercutio wasn’t always picking fights, maybe he would’ve lived longer than he did. Although he picked the fight he died in, Mercutio still is not the most to blame for his tragic
Who do you think is responsible for the deaths The scene begins with Benvolio and Mercutio talking. Bevolio is trying to persuade Mercutio to leave because, if the Capulets are around, there would be trouble I pray thee good Mercutio let's retire. Benvolio is used by Shakespeare as a peacemaker, he will not argue or upst anybody andwill not side with anyone as he is neither Caulet or Montague, he is, hever, Romeo's friend.
In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, through the first three acts, Mercutio is the most important character because he participates in all of the major parts of the play. To illustrate, Mercutio is involved in a very pivotal scene where Tybalt is being arrogant and trying to get into fights with the Montagues. Mercutio antagonistically says to Tybalt, “And but one word with one of us? Couple it with / something; make it a word and a blow” leading to a Tybalt and Mercutio fight that Tybalt ultimately wins in the end (3.1.35-36). Romeo fights for Mercutios honor and ends up killing Tybalt.
Mercutio’s death rages Romeo and he commits a crime, a crime punishable by the banishment of Verona. This creates conflict between Romeo and Juliet and makes things
In scene 1 of Act 3, when Tybalt challenges Romeo, Mercutio responds by trying to get Tybalt to fight him instead of fighting Romeo(3.1.70-79), proving that he is such a good friend that he is willing to put his life on the line. This scene is essential to the story because it results in Mercutio dying and Romeo getting banished. If this scene didn’t occur, then Romeo would not have been banished and would have gotten the message that Juliet was faking her death. Similarly, on page three of The Ethiopss Ear, it talks about how Mercutio and Romeo had such a strong friendship that they could have been lovers, and also about how much Mercutio cared about Romeo, causing him to fight Tybalt. This helps us understand just how strong of a friendship Romeo and Mercutio had in the play, given that they could have been lovers if not for Juliet.
Mercutio is a close friend of Romeo he is seen with wit, humor, and a quick temper. He is very independent and refuses to let others' expectations have a constraint on him. Mercutio begins to understand himself through interactions with other characters such as Romeo, he begins to find his place in the world. He has a deep commitment to himself and his identity disregarding the social norms. Even though he is a great character it gets to the best of him and leads to his death against Tybalt.
Romeo’s humor is very lack-luster and Romeo himself is more sensitive, so he doesn't crack a lot of jokes, while Mercutio on the other hand loves to have a good laugh and makes a lot of jokes himself. Mercutio is a very optimistic man, but will definitely fight someone if it is anywhere near needed. Differently, Romeo is very against violence and tries to stop any fights that build up. Finally, Mercutio does not understand Romeo’s love for others, and how much he lets it affect him. Even though the two are so different, Romeo and Mercutio still manage to be best friends throughout the play.
Mercutios relationship with Romeo is a foil because their beliefs are extremely controversial with each other's. Fates, dreams and love are few of the thoughts where they disagree, and there opinions on each matter were shown a myriad throughout the play , this is shown to be true when Romeo states, "In bed asleep, while they do dreams come true" (1.4, lns 52). This quote supports my answer because Romeo is stating that your dream are prophecies where Mercutio, "...nothing but fantasy" (1.4, lns 98) believes that they mean nothing and are just childish thought. Another quote from the text that supports my answer is between Romeo and Mercutio, "And, to sink in it, should you burden love- too great oppression for a tender thing" (1.4, lns 23-24)
Imagine two people who are polar opposites with different perspectives and attitudes towards controversial ideas, and overall, contrasting personalities. One would think that they would be enemies, but instead, they are best friends. In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Mercutio are known as dramatic foils, this can be concluded due to their conflicting opinions on love. Romeo is stuck in love, while Mercutio has fallen out of love. This contributes to how they differentiate on that “contradictory” subject.
Romeo is to blame for Mercutio’s death in Act III of Romeo and Juliet. First of all, Romeo did not fight back when Tybalt insulted him. Tybalt calls Romeo a villain and other various names, but Romeo responds by saying (paraphrase), “I love you more than you believe for we are family, even if you are oblivious to this fact. I love the name Capulet as much as I love my own name”(3.1.72-75). When Romeo says this, Tybalt becomes confused and enraged.
When problems sprout like flowers, it’s quite difficult to find the root of the problem. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, two star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, end up taking their lives due to sundry aspects. However, there is one overriding aspect responsible for their deaths who happens to be Romeo’s best friend. Mercutio is the most at fault for Romeo and Juliet’s death; Mercutio is the character who ultimately convinces Romeo to attend the Capulet’s feast and because Mercutio challenges Tybalt to a fray — sparking a chain of events.
Mercutio is making light of Romeo’s deep depressing love for Rosaline, he’s mocking love and making it a joke. This creates an emphasis on Romeo’s utter affixation with love. Mercutio’s playfulness and ability to make a serious subject humorous and reasonable bring out the deep, dark, and depressing side of Romeo, who is completely the opposite when it comes to love. Romeo does not see love as a joke and we see him fall into a depression, Mercutio only makes this sadness more apparent as he talks so jokingly of love. Shakespeare uses Mercutio to lighten Romeo’s depression and make it more
Mercutio is different from Romeo because he does not believe in love and makes fun of Romeo and falling in love so heavily all the time. When Romeo describes his love for Rosaline using a rose with thorns as a metaphor. Mercutio laughs and says ”If love be rough with you, be rough with love; Prick love for pricking and you beat love down”(I.4.27-28). In another scenario of Romeo and Mercutio’s foils is when Romeo tells his friends about a dream he had about the party and is expecting a disastrous outcome of the party. Mercutio makes fun of Romeo because he does not believe that dreams can become visions of impending danger.
Throughout the whole play both Romeo and Mercutio were there for each other when in need of a friend or even just some comforting words. Mercutio always seems to say the right things to put Romeo back on track and in focus. While Romeo was relentlessly weeping over his unrequited love for Rosaline, Mercutio, with his wise and caring words said, “‘Why is not this not better than groaning for love? Now art thou sociable.
