Yet, later that night, when Romeo and Juliet meet, he suddenly forgets about Rosaline, and he states “Forswear it, sight,/For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (I. IV.59-60). By this, not only does Romeo contradict himself, he also validates the fact that their love is based on external beauty. Although, it is destiny for these lovers to be together, they must not rush into complicated things such as love. At some point, even Juliet thinks their love “…is too rash, too unadvised, too sudd... ... middle of paper ... ...y was to liberate Juliet from her forced marriage and into the arms of Romeo. Apparently Juliet is so miserable that,“If all else fail, [she her]self have power to die” (III.V.242).
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is known to be a tragedy but deep researches differentiate the causes of it. Some may argue and define it as the consequence of a destructive teenage love; nevertheless Romeo’s role is taken too lightly in that story. Hence, Romeo has been defined throughout the book as a very hasty personage whose actions are dictated by his emotions or by a bad situation he is trapped in proven by Tybalt’s death in the hands of Romeo. Therefore, to fully comprehend Romeo’s part in the story, if one considered that every action he accomplishes are the fruit of pure impulsiveness, the fact that everything he does result to a death or an unnecessary event and that if he really took his time to think before acting then, there would have had no problem. Thus, it can be well said that Romeo’s pushy and impulsive actions are responsible of the tragedy in the book.
71-72). In addition, Friar Lawrence marries Romeo and Juliet without even thinking of the consequences that the marriage will bring; he just does it in hopes that “this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3. 98-99). Friar Lawrence may have good intentions in mind, but his actions played a heavy role in the whole tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Devising a risky and poorly thought out plan exemplifies one of the many mistakes made by Friar Lawrence, which led to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
His actions overrun his thoughts, and his first reaction upon hearing of Juliet’s death was to “lie with thee tonight” (5.1.37). His brash and sudden actions take control of him, out of love for Juliet. He does not care to think about the future he could have had in front of him, but instead thinks only for a future with his wife. Romeo’s faults are crucial to the progress, and downfall, of their fated
Romeo tells to Juliet that “O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear; Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear! So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows, As yonder lady o'er her fellows shows. The measure done, I'll watch her place of stand, And, touching hers, make blessed my rude hand. Did my heart love till now?
Romeo’s death is all the more tragic because the audience is aware that Juliet is in fact not dead, and had this information gotten to Romeo neither him nor Juliet would have died. The death of the two lovers in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet seems preventable. Misinformed characters spur a series of unfortunate and ill-timed events that lead to Romeo and Juliet taking their own lives. The audience is constantly aware of Romeo and Juliet’s looming death and always hold knowledge that the characters do not. Shakespeare incorporates this dramatic irony in numerous places in the play which keeps the audience on edge and gives the same sense of fate that the characters experience
Blame for the Deaths of Romeo and Juliet The two people or things I would most blame for their deaths are Romeo and fate. The reason for blaming Romeo is because he was too hasty, organised everything in secret and he was blinded by love. I think fate is also to blame as it also brought bad luck and also the letter did not reach Romeo. In the play Romeo was being too hasty by getting married so quickly to Juliet. This is shown by Romeo saying: “Then plainly know, my heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet; … But this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today.” This shows us that Romeo wasted no time in getting married.
They do not embrace their situation, and think about other solutions other than suicide. Romeo and Juliet act on impulse and make rash decisions without thinking about the consequences, which results in self-destruction, because of the burden and the extremity of love. Romeo and Juliet’s young love reflects their abruptness, rashness, and lack of maturity which leads to them getting suicide impulses throughout the story and causing Romeo and Juliet to ultimately suicide at the end of the story. Their love causes them to act very rashly and make unwise decisions, such as getting married and killing themselves. They are also too young to love because they are not mature enough.
The families’ discrepancies were a major human error which led to the deaths. The second reason is that the two characters were not in love, and that they tricked each other into thinking they were. Eventually, the poor timing of many characters proves that the deaths were induced by human error. If the Friar and Nurse hadn’t been so incapable of keeping things in good timing, the lovers may still be alive. First of all, The Montague’s and Capulet’s hatred for one another shows another depth about how human errors create the setting of Romeo and Juliet’s death.
His attempts to do the right thing were noble, but because of poor planning they would soon lead to the inevitable tragedy. Friar Laurance marries Romeo and Juliet even though he believes that the marriage will end up in tragedy. However he marries them in hope that it will end the continuous feuding between the two families. When Romeo asks Friar Laurance to marry him with Juliet the Friar doesn't think that his love is true. "O, she knew well/Thy love did read by rote and could not spell."
