The fact that the lovers are star-crossed, yet they still love each other is a bad decision because it leads to their doom. Second, in the third act Romeo “slew Tybalt” because of fate (R&J 3.1.178). Tybalt hates Romeo for crashing the party where Romeo met Juliet and he also hates Romeo because he is a Montague. Paris hates Romeo even when Romeo did not get a choice in what family he was born into, it was fate. Then, Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel but Tybalt ends up killing Mercutio.
This fight between Mercutio and Tybalt led to the death of them both, which led to Romeo being banished from Verona, leaving Juliet heartbroken. “O God! Did Romeo 's hand shed Tybalt 's blood?” (Act 3, Scene 2) is a quote said by Juliet, showing how distraught is over this situation. This leaves Juliet visibility upset and her parents notice this sadness of hers. Her parents end up promoting up the idea that to cheer Juliet up, they arrange a marriage to her suitor, Paris, to come earlier than expected.
The expression, “Timing is everything”, could not be more true than it is in the play, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. Timing is responsible for many of the tragedies that occur in the play. In the story, Romeo is heartbroken because the girl, he ‘loves’ doesn’t love him back. During this time his friends and him crash a party thrown by the Capulets, Juliet’s family, and Romeo is in hopes of seeing the girl. At this party, Romeo meets Juliet and falls in love.
Heartbroken, she stabs h... ... middle of paper ... ...ere the feud between the Capulets and Montagues is reignited, middle, where Romeo and Juliet marry and Romeo is then banished, and end, where Romeo and Juliet commit suicide and the two families end their feud. The events in the play, such as Romeo’s death and Juliet’s thoughts of suicide, cause sympathy and fright in the audience, leaving them with a chance to be emotionally cleansed at the end, where the two families stop fighting and build statues for Romeo and Juliet. Two highly renowned protagonists, Romeo and Juliet, fall from their renown due to disobeying orders and killing themselves and others. Suffering is a main part of the play, as Romeo and Juliet face many difficulties with their relationship and their families. Often, people call Romeo and Juliet a romance or a comedy, but neither classification ends with the tragic suicides of the protagonists.
Romeo, driven with a mixture of grief and anger kills Tybalt. Shell-shocked with what he has done, he flees to Mantua, avoiding death. Meanwhile, Juliet unwillingly becomes betrothed to a respectable man named County Paris. Though Juliet does not wish to marry Paris, her father, Lord Capulet, threatens her and calls her ungrateful. Troubled, Juliet runs to Friar Lawrence for a solution to get out of the arranged marriage.
Unfortunately, the fighting gets worse and Mercutio (Montague) a good friend of Romeo ends up in a fight with Tybalt (Capulet), Juliet's cousin. Tybalt killed Mercutio, which caused Romeo to kill Tybalt in an angry rage. For this, Romeo is banished from Verona. At the same time, the Capulet's were planning Juliet's marriage to Paris. Juliet didn't want to marry this man so she arranges with Friar Lawrence to fake her own death with a sleeping potion that would make everyone think that she was dead.
Mercutio then dies. When Romeo kills Tybalt, who is Juliets cousin, Juliet knows they may never be together. Romeo is then exiled from Verona. By this time Romeo and Juliet have already been secretly married by the Friar. Juliet is so upset she tells her parents that she refuses to marry Paris.
That violence is the reason that Romeo is banished. His banishment leads to the risky ruse of Juliet’s death, which leads to Romeo coming to Juliet family tomb.” (Kerschen 14) Not only is Romeo responsible for his wife’s death, but for the fact that Juliet missed him so much and caused her to drink the poison to fake her death. But Juliet’s character also faced some flaws such as not telling her parents about the wedding, which ended up with eve more
In order to avoid this, Friar Laurence devises an ingenious plan, however, bit by bit it unravels. Romeo never receives the letter, and this leads to a spiral of poor luck. Paris is killed by Romeo, and after Romeo kills himself, Juliet sees him there and kills herself. The dramatic irony of the entire plot is that Friar Laurence was aiming to join the two families in love with the marriage of Romeo and Juliet, which he did, but only through their death. The two lovers, Romeo being a mania lover and Juliet being a ludus lover, also shared a tragic flaw; they believed in love more than they did in taking responsibility for their actions.
Romeo then gets banished and Juliet is forced by her father to marry a man named Paris. Juliet refuses to marry Paris and decides to take a potion that would make her appear dead, Romeo returns and is not aware of Juliet's fake death and proceeds to kill himself. Once Juliet awakens and notices that Romeo is dead she refuses to live without him and kills herself.
