Also, ‘freak’ accidents make the deaths more likely because of Juliet waking up straight after when Romeo dies. Love itself may have been the ‘vital’ key to all this because in the end the two will be drawn together in a sad, yet rather emotional ending to Shakespeare’s play. We can see that ‘Romeo and Juliet’ reflected some of the important events in Shakespeare’s own time because it was the age of Elizabeth I and James I, an age of a religious and political faction and of growing nationalism. Elizabeth’s father, Henry VIII disconnected the English Church from the Roman Catholic Church in protest because the P... ... middle of paper ... ... deaths are caused by ‘love’ and they died because they love each other and willing to give up including their own lives. Also, if they truly love each other, they will be inseparable.
“Immature love says:’ I love you because I need you. ‘Mature love says’ I need you because I love you” (Fromm, Eric). Romeo and Juliet is a tragic love story written by William Shakespeare, the play is based on teenagers who fall in love with each other without thinking about the consequences that there love will have. In the play the reader will see Romeos immaturity and irrational decisions that lead to his death, also the reader sees Juliet’s immature decisions and her lack of growing up and being more mature. The outcome of the play was changed because of there irrational thinking.
Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a true Aristotelian tragedy because both Romeo and Juliet possess a tragic flaw, a catastrophe takes place in which both characters meet a tragic death, and the audience is aroused with pity and fear. Romeo’s tragic flaw impetuousness causes him to make decisions quickly, which contributes to his tragic death. Romeo acts with haste when he marries Juliet, even though he does not even know her for twenty-four hours. Juliet tells Romeo, “It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden, / Too like the lightning” (II, ii, 118-119). One can see that even Juliet recognizes Romeo’s impetuousness and questions if they are moving their relationship forward too quickly and hastily.

Finally it is fate, destiny and chance that bring the lovers together, and even in death they are side by side. It is plain to see that Romeo and Juliet are indeed, “star-crossed lovers”, for fate brings them together, but fate also tears them apart again, and is responsible for their tragic end. But the closing moments of the play don’t suggest that the death of the young lovers ends the feud. The Prince’s reproach to Capulet and Montague, “See what a scourge is laid upon your hate”, suggests that the tragedy has a social cause: the feud that has racked the city.
The lovers ultimately both die. This change of tides in the play make the drama an Aristotelian tragedy. To conclude, Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy due to the tragic elements of Romeo’s thoughtlessness, Juliet’s attachment towards Romeo, and the plot’s dramatic turnabout. The play has both main characters tragically take their own lives, but there is much controversy whether it should be considered a tragedy or just a tragic story. Aristotle’s Poetics clearly outline all of the necessary parts to a tragedy, and Romeo and Juliet fill in those requisites.
The possibility of tragedy was established with Romeo attending the Capulet’s masque, pushing Juliet to agree to marry him and at last be married. The likeliness of their deaths was augmented by Romeo killing Tybalt and his banishment. At last, the tragedy took form when Romeo committed suicide follow by Juliet. At no point he was cautious while making his decisions or thought about the consequences of his actions. These actions caused a lot of unnecessary drama and led all the characters to their downfall.
