The Prince exiles Romeo from Verona for the killing. He also adds that if Romeo returns, "that hour is his last". Lord Capulet, misinterpreting Juliet's grief, agrees to marry her to Count Paris and threatens to disown her when she refuses to become Paris's "joyful bride". When she then pleads for the marriage to be delayed, her mother rejects her. Romeo secretly spends the night in Juliet's chamber, where they consummate their marriage.
Unfortunately, Tybalt and Mercutio are killed and Romeo gets banished leaving Juliet without a husband or a cousin. "O, I am a fortune's fool," (Act III, Scene I) explains how Romeo felt at the moment of Tybalt's death. He felt that he fell into one of fate's many cruel games and it was too late to get out. When things are just getting worst, Lord Capulet arranges for Juliet to marry Paris causing Juliet to panic. She then has to hurry and do something to stop the wedding and of course fate would just happen to guide her back to Friar Lawrence.
‘Itch’ meaning uncomfortable sensation indicates that Capulet will not be satisfied at this point until he hits Juliet as he is that shocked as her reply. He also rudely insults Juliet ‘you green-sickness currion’. Further studying Capulet’s speech you notice he uses a lot of rhetorical questions such as ‘How will none?’, perhaps this is because he is so dumbfounded that Juliet refused him and so he is trying to find out why she isn’t following his orders. Capulet forces Juliet to marry Paris, despite her being in love with Romeo. Her father shows complete ignorance for her decision, and tells her to marry Paris or he will never speak to her again.
Because of Friar Lawrence’s decision to marry Romeo and Juliet when the two families have had a long conflict with each other, he causes the deaths in “Romeo and Juliet”, as he believes that their lustful love shall bring the families to peace once they are married. “But come, young waverer, come go with me. In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; For this alliance may so happy prove To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (II, iii, 97-100). In this quotation, Friar Lawrence is speaking to Romeo about the marriage, and how although the friar knows about the families’ feud against each other, he still suggests that everything will work out in the end once he marries them. This part of the story begins much of the drama that happens later on.
Then, Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel but Tybalt ends up killing Mercutio. In anger from Mercutio’s death, Romeo kills Tybalt which gets him banished to Mantua. Even though he was angry over his friend’s death, this action was a bad decision by Romeo because the banishment caused problems for the lovers. Then, they have to find a way to still be together. To even more complicate the plot, Mr. Capulet promised Paris that will Juliet “shall be married to” him (R&J 3.4.21).
He decides that he loves her in spite of this, and so does Juliet. They confess their love for each other during the very famous balcony scene in which they agree to secretly marry the next day. Friar Laurence agrees to marry them in an attempt to end the fight between the families. Unfortunately, the fight between the Montagues and the Capulets gets worse and Mercutio (Romeo's best friend) ends up in a fight with Tybalt (Juliet's cousin). Tybalt kills Mercutio, which causes Romeo to kill Tybalt in a fit of rage.
The dramatic play of Romeo and Juliet, written by the famous English poet; William Shakespeare in the mid 1590’s, is about two “star-crossed” lovers from rival families that have despised each other since ancient times. The play takes place in the city of Verona, Italy when a brawl engages by the feuding families; The Capulets and The Montagues. The Prince, filled with exasperation, explains that if anyone disrupts the peace once again, the punishment will be death. Further into the play, lovers from the feuding families meet each other and instantly fall in love. Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet, are willing to do anything for love and will put their trust in fate.
Reckless actions lead to untimely deaths. In Shakespeare’s tragedy “Romeo and Juliet”, both protagonists fight for their hopeless love. Bloodshed and chaos appear inevitable in fair Verona; Romeo and Juliet come from enemy households, the Montegues and the Capulets, who have sworn to defeat one another. The young and handsome Romeo weeps over his unrequited love for Rosaline, until he lays his eyes on Juliet. Strong and independent, Juliet seeks to escape her family’s will to marry her off to Paris, a kinsman of the Prince.
His plan for Juliet is to tell her father she will marry Paris then go to bed with no one, not even the nurse. After, she will drink a potion to make her seem dead for forty two hours and then have a messenger tell Romeo about it. He will have her put in a vault to wait for Friar to bring her out so she and Romeo can elope. The plan was perfect until tragedy occurs, Benvolio had seen Juliet dead and immediately tells Romeo about it. The result is Romeo and Juliet murdering themselves and the play had a tragic ending.
In the play, Romeo and Juliet, directed by William Shakespeare, two young, star-crossed lovers cannot be together because their families, the Capulets and the Montagues, have an ancient feud.
