Romeo fights Tybalt and wins causing him to get banished. This makes Romeo very upset because he won't be able to see Juliet again and because he loves Verona. Mercutio plays a vital role in this scene. He takes Romeos place in a fight with Tybalt and dies doing so. Mercutio is always joking.
Although he was dead, he had already caused another fight by annoying the peaceful Romeo to take vengeance on his friend’s deaths which lead Romeo to kill him too. The Prince (Escales) hears about the fight and did what he called a “strict justice” and banished Romeo from Verona. The scene was made as exciting as possible so as to cover the sad and bad part of the violence and conflict in the play to make every other scene level up so as not to make it a dull and sad a story.
They argue and this leads to a fight and so we are immediately shown the rivalry between the two families, the hatred being so strong it is even passed down to the servants of the families. The reaction of key characters to this fight is important because it hints at what might happen in the future. Benvolio is introduced to the audience at the beginning of the play when the fighting starts and he demands for the it to stop saying, “... ... middle of paper ... ...he killed Tybalt, Benvolio gives a bias account. He is going to protect Romeo, as brothers do and he relates to Romeo as being “young” in order to influence the prince. Benvolio does this so that Romeo isn’t killed as a punishment; emotive language is used here, in order to turn the mind of the prince, “O noble Prince.” Benvolio talks of how Romeo did not initiate the fight, “manage of this fatal brawl.” Mercutio is portrayed as “brave” in an effort to ‘win the prince over’ as Mercutio is a relation of the prince.
At the start of Act III, Mercutio, who is Romeo’s friend fights with Tybalt, who is Juliet’s cousin. Romeo tries to intercede, however Tybalt stabs Mercutio under Romeo’s arm and leaves him with a fatal wound. Tybalt runs away, and Romeo becomes overwhelmed with fury when he realizes Mercutio is dead. Romeo confronts Tybalt, saying “Now Tybalt, take the ‘villain’ back again / That late thou gav’st me, for Mercutio’s soul / Is but a little ways above our heads, / Staying for thine to keep him company. / Either thou, or I, or both must go with him” (3.1.130-134).
The death is blamed on Romeo, but Tybalt comes back, and fights Romeo, who kills him. One of the key things in this scene that shows the dramatic effectiveness is the dramatic irony. This is when the characters do not know something that the audience do. In the scene there is a lot of dramatic irony. Romeo and Juliet have got married, but in the scene Romeo is the only one who knows.
Now by the stock and honour of my kin, To strike him dead I hold it not a sin. (1.5. 54-58) In this quotation Tybalt is referring to Romeo as a “slave”, or an unwanted guest. Tybalt is an aggressive character throughout the play, however is always trying to maintain the honour of the Capulet family. In this specific situation he is worried that Romeo has come to crash the ball, and would happily kill him in order to uphold the Capulet family’s image.
Hamlet is dealing with a character who goes through a change from college student to a bloodthirsty character looking for vengeance. Even though the character loses sight of who he is and who he really avenging in the end he feels that he is complete. There is also another character who is being overwhelmed with greed that he would kill his own blood for the right of the crown and fortune. The reader’s will see that revenge and greed plays a main role and that they complement each other and Shakespeare would use this to his advantage when writing this play. Throughout the play readers will realize Shakespeare’s creativness to use vengeance, death and insanity to emotionally drive his characters to their death or to their prosperity.
After a short duel, Romeo murders Tybalt. Romeo flees, fearing the consequences of his actions, and after the Prince has assessed the situation, Romeo is banished from Verona. Tybalt’s initial anger towards all the Montagues, Romeo in particular, at first looks quite mindless and unnecessary, but when you consider certain incidents ... ... middle of paper ... ...y being recognised as one of the greatest tragedies ever. I think the reason it’s such a classic is that it still can be understood and appreciated by young people today and is still relevant to them, even hundreds of years after it was first written. People of today can most certainly still learn from the play and apply it to their lives.
The whole atmosphere of spreading antagonism is created quickly and effectively, and we also get to know the qualities of the main characters very quickly: Old Capulet is immediately shown to be a silly, interfering, old man, for instance. So the opening is effective,... ... middle of paper ... ...s again they will be put to death. Obviously, this is in the back of the audience’s mind when Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel, and both Mercutio and Tybalt are killed. We fear that Romeo will be killed for his involvement, yet he is only banished. As it turns out, the banishment leads to his death anyway.
Even though Romeo regarded Tybalt as a relative, he still wanted to attack Tybalt, because his respect for Tybalt was clouded by his desire for revenge of Mercutio 's death. Later in the story, when Romeo heard news of Juliet’s death, Romeo rushed to the apothecary and asked him, “Let me have A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear As will disperse itself through all the veins. That the life-weary taker may fall dead.” (V. i.63-65). Romeo was ready to commit suicide out of his love and affection for Juliet. This is significant because Romeo’s strong love for Juliet was able to stimulate his brain into making believe that he should die because he can’t live without Juliet.
