Romeo and Juliet - Parents This essay is about a boy who is in love with a girl named Rosaline at the beginning of the book. His friend Mercutio makes fun of him, and he is heart broken from being turned down by her. (Pg. 13) "This story of two young star crossed lovers takes place in the 15 century in fair Verona, Italy". Romeo has just been let down by Rosaline; when he mopes around nonstop thinking about her, word comes up about a masked ball at the Capulet residence. (Pg. 31) "Mercutio suggests going for they might meet more beauties there and they will suit one with Romeo". On the night of the ball, Romeo and Mercutio wait for something to come along until a young girl named Juliet comes along and gets nicely introduced to Romeo. In this story a lot of bad things happen. The Capulets and the Montagues get into an awful brawl and Tybalt, the cousin of Juliet sees Romeo at the ball and challenges him to a duel later on. Mercutio is a very loyal friend to Romeo because he helps him with all of the problems he has. For instance, when Romeo thinks there is no more hope left for him to find another love, Mercutio comes to the rescue and invites themselves to the ball where Romeo meets his new love. Another time in the book, Mercutio takes his life for Romeo in the fight between him and Tybalt. Romeo and Juliet were confused because if they had only been smarter to realize the only plan they had to follow to live by. Romeo was the kind of person that always stuck with what he heard. When Rosalyn once loved him he kept looking for her when she left him, and slayed himself after hearing that Juliet was (she believed) dead. Romeo and Juliet at the end of the book both die because they are foolish. When Balthasar comes into the last scene they all get along including the Montagues and Capulets. The story is ended. When Juliet sacrificed her life for Romeo it was dumb because she could have stayed alive and find another guy.
