Fate, above all, destroyed Romeo and Juliet. Several instances in the play reveal that the love of Romeo and Juliet would end in death. "A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life" (Prologue.6) destined for misfortune. It could be that Romeo and Juliet were destined for death so that their families’ feud would be over. Also, in the prologue, it states that their love was "The fearful passage of their death" (Prologue.9).
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
Destiny drives the play from when Romeo and Juliet have their first encounter at the banquet and they express their desirous romance. Fate pushes the play when Romeo, Mercutio and Tybalt begin a battle and results in the death of Tybalt and Mercutio. Destiny also steers the play especially when the messenger misses Romeo and does not explain that Juliet is not truly dead. The last fateful event in the play is Romeo’s and Juliet’s death, without the destined events before, they would not have died for each other. The famous playwright portrays this theme by using intricate literary devices to build up the events through the theme of destiny which eventually leads towards the tragic ending.
Friar is to blame, not only for one action that contributed to their death, but for three actions. Friar Lawrence’s first mistake was allowing Romeo and Juliet to be able to be married so quickly without thinking it through. The Friar had intentions hoping that if he married Romeo and Juliet, it may save the family feud and put it past the families. In the play Friar Lawrence
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.
It Was Three What if The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet wasn’t just one person 's fault, what if the causes of their death was because of the mistakes from the three main characters? The Tragedy of Romeo Juliet by William Shakespeare was a story of two lovers that end in tragedy and there was a lot of events that lead up to their tragedy, but who is too blame? The blame can’t be put on just one person and it can’t be on everyone so throughout the story there are three main problems caused by Romeo, Lord Capulet, and Friar Lawrence. Whose problems led to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Now the deaths of Romeo and Juliet were very iconic and defined the entire play, but the blame has to be put on Romeo, Lord Capulet and Friar Lawrence In the first
In theory, this should have caused Juliet to feel pure hatred towards Romeo. Ironically, Tybalt 's death brought the couple even closer together in love. However, the Capulet family did not know of the secret relationship and wanted to put Romeo to his death. Tybalt 's death affected each member of the Capulet family and moved the plot closer to its tragic ending. As Tybalt 's legacy, Romeo was exiled from Verona, and for a time, could not see Juliet anymore.
The very instance that the two belong to opposing groups is only one example of destiny's twisted humor. Now some would argue that it is wholly Friar John's fault for not delivering the plans to Romeo. This is viable, yet one could argue that it is ultimately fate's hand for casting a plague upon unsuspecting Friar John, hindering him from completing his crucial mission. Fate, or in this case Fortune, is brought to attention in the play when Juliet consults the stars to deliver Romeo back safely. She asks, "O Fortune, Fortune!
Romeo and Juliet is a play about Romeo and Juliet fall in love with each other, getting married, then they die at the end of the play. They die at the end of the play by trying to keep their marriage. The characters Romeo, Juliet, and Friar are all responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet. They are responsible because Juliet and Friar tried to set up a fake death so Juliet didn’t have to be Paris’s wife. The plan went wrong and Romeo thought Juliet was really dead, so he killed himself because he loved Juliet.
In the play, The Tragedy of Romeo and juliet, by William Shakespeare, a famous poet, is a tale of a young teenage couple from two feuding families that fall in love one night and die about three days later. Some may say that the families and the prince were responsible for the tragedy, but the one who should have most of the blame is friar Lawrence. Despite his help on marrying the younger lovers, he’s to blame for his plan on preventing another marriage, his reasons to marry the two, and the consequences of what he did. Although his reason to marry Romeo and juliet was a good intention, however he knew the consequences of the marriage and was ignorant of the prince’s word. The intention was that he’ll marry the two lovers in order for the families to stop their feud and because
He also believed Balthasar when Balthasar says Juliet died, Romeo then spontaneously decided he will die with Juliet, Creating the Tragic ending of the play. Romeo has many dreams in the play giving messages to Romeo yet Romeo chooses to ignore them, making his own choice instead of fate. Before the Capulet party, Romeo spoke about a dream that someone close to him will die if he proceeds into the party. Instead of listening he decides to continue forward ignoring his dream and choosing his action himself, leading to the death of Mercutio. Romeo caused the Death of Mercutio by ignorantly stepping in between the quarrel of Mercutio and Tybalt, letting Tybalt stab Mercutio under Romeo 's arm.
Tybalt let his anger get the best of him, which caused him his life, Mercutio’s life, and Romeo’s banishment. After Romeo gets banished the climax rises because now it makes everything harder for him and Juliet. Whos gonna let their daughter marry someone who killed her cousin? Because of Romeo’s banishment Juliet is forced to fake her own death so she doesn’t have to marry Paris. But Romeo didn’t know it was fake so he Killed himself and Juliet ended up killing herself as well.
The second most important reason that causes the demise of Romeo and Juliet is that fate was involved. The chorus in the script of Romeo and Juliet describes them as “a pair of star-crossed lovers” (pg. 483). Star-crossed lovers mean love that is doomed to fail, so they had the fate that their love was doomed to fail. Another example of fate in the story is when Romeo sees Juliet at her (Capulet’s) party and the first thing he asked himself was “my heart love till now?” (pg.
Famously known as the star-crossed lovers from rival households, Romeo and Juliet depicts William Shakespeare’s definition of a tragedy a play ending with the protagonists’ death. However, they are also notable for their impulsive decisions which eventually leading to their suicide. For example, Romeo falling in love with Juliet within minutes of seeing her at the Capulet’s party, “For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” (I, v, 51) as he was heartbroken over Rosaline earlier that day. Yet, Romeo and Juliet are not to blame for their downfall. In the end, it was Friar Lawrence who killed the lovers with a corrupt plan.
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
