“Sin from my lips? O trespass sweetly urged! Give me my sin back (1.5.109-110).” He is saying that he wants Juliet to love him without knowing who she is. How else will they disobey his advice at all?
Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
Mercutio and Tybalt's bout created an overarching problem for both Juliet and Romeo both in the short and long term. First off as Romeo had killed Tybalt in his rage, he had disobeyed the Princes decree to keep peace on the streets or meet demise. Although Romeo hadn’t taken the full blunt of the prince's punishment due to Benvolio's testimony, he had still gotten banished from the streets of Verona which Romeo claimed was worse than death: “For exile hath more terror in his look, Much more than death. ”(3.3.14-15). Mercutio and Tybalt’s confrontation also had immediate effects on Juliet as well, who was very distraught as the nurse delivered the news of Romeo’s exile to her.
Their own families indifferences causing the death of their own children. Lastly, in Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt bullies Romeo when Romeo does not want to fight. Romeo loves Tybalt but he does not know that so Tybalt calls Romeo “a villain” (3.1, 64). Eventually Tybalt provokes Romeo enough to where they duel and Tybalt dies.
In fact, in the prologue it says “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life;” the phrase star-crossed means full of bad luck. So this play is meant to have bad luck (or bad decisions?). When Romeo and Juliet decide to get married or Juliet decides to fake her death and not tell Romeo. Those decisions were foolish and self-centered decisions. Even Romeo stabbing himself after he finds Juliet was a rash decision.
The death of Romeo and Juliet is surrounded with a lot of controversy on who is to blame. Some speculate that Friar Lawrence or Lord Capulet is to blame. However, could it be the most unusual suspect in the entire story? Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. In Shakespeare’s
In the Shakespearean play Romeo and Juliet, the play is mainly ran by the bad choices Romeo and Juliet make. These many hasty decisions eventually led to the death of the two star crossed lovers. Some of the decisions that will be mentioned here will be: Romeo getting involved in Mercutio and Tybalt’s “duel”, the Friar agreeing to marry Romeo and Juliet, and the two lovers rushing into marriage. To begin, one of the impetuous decisions Romeo makes: Getting involved in Mercutio and Tybalt. “Hold Tybalt!
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a perfect example of how poor choices don’t only affect one’s own futures but also those of their communities. Romeo and Juliet fall in love despite their families, the Montagues and the Capulets, being enemies. The two marry in secret and plan to live a happy life together before a deadly fight breaks out between the Montagues and the Capulets and the lovers are separated. The heartbreaking story consists of risky decisions and bad timing. Romeo’s own impulsive nature, demonstrated when he kills Juliet’s kinsman, breaks Verona’s law of banishment, and suicidal act, all contribute to the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet.
The ancient mutiny among the two families was theoretically the whole cause of the deaths that abruptly occurred throughout the course of the play. Yet, fate is again to blame, because had the two families not fought, chaos would not have been greeted, with open hands. If their mutiny were to be looked well upon, for example their mutiny brought forth entertainment to Verona, so be it. But William Shakespeare depicts their feud as yet another cynical game of fate. If the feud among the families had not been created, Romeo, Juliet, Tybalt, Mercutio, and many more would not have died.
The amount of situations that occur in the span of Romeo and Juliet’s life. First Romeo “falls in love” with Juliet and gets married, then he is forced to leave Verona because he killed Tybalt who also killed Mercutio, then hears news that Juliet suddenly died so he goes back to Verona (and kills Paris while visiting Juliet), and he kills himself for his true love-foreshadowed many times. Gale says,“ But he also concluded that hate was a controllable emotion and that it had ultimately caused the tragic events depicted in Romeo and Juliet.” (under Boethius and Astrology). The feud created such problems upon the families representing how fate intervening was destined, yet could’ve been broken in some possible way.
When Mercutio is stabbed everyone thinks he is just joking “Ay, ay, a scratch, a scratch.” (1565) Until he drops dead. When Romeo sees he has died, he gets furious and goes out and finds Tybalt and challenges him to fight, resulting in Tybalt being slain by Romeo, which in turn causes Romeo to be exiled away from Verona and his love Juliet. If Mercutio and Tybalt would of never fought, then Mercutio would not of died and Romeo would of not have killed Tybalt and he
Romeo 's personality of peace, loving, yet vengeful caused his own doom once he was exiled for killing Tybalt who killed Mercutio. Thus 'evidently causing pain for Juliet who lost both her lover and cousin. Juliet 's father arranging Juliet 's marriage to Paris made her mourning worse, already being married to Romeo yet being separated made her to reason with Friar Laurence. The plan that was supposed to reunite both Lovers indefinetly brought upon their own doom. Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her.
If Tybalt had not killed Mercutio, Romeo would not have gotten upset with Tybalt. When people found out about Tybalt being killed by Romeo, the Prince banished him from Verona. Since he gets banished it is harder for him to see Juliet, which also made it hard for the news about her being in a deep sleep to reach Romeo. These are my reasons on why Tybalt should also be to blame for the two
