(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s personality drastically changes. At first Romeo was love-sick and Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage. Then they meet, fall in love and get married.
/ O, much I fear some ill unthrilly thing” (5.3.129-140). As the watch approaches, the Friar grows selfish and flees from the scene leaving Juliet who now realizes that Romeo killed himself.

In Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin is killed out of anger by Romeo, her husband. Juliet might be suicidal because of the death of her cousin and the problems that death caused.

Since the beginning of the story Juliet might have been suicidal and some events might have just pushed her through the limit. Juliet also shows many classic signs of bipolarity.
She calls him a bastard because he walked out on her however Duffy uses beloved sweetheart to symbolise her unconditional love for him. Havisham exhibits violent imagery with powerful words, strangle, stabbed and death which all associate her bitterness with her wanting her ex fiancé dead. `Not a day since then I haven’t wished him dead`, proves that Havisham still remembers her wedding day very vividly and feels humiliated having been jilted so is trying to get revenge. Havisham is feeling emotionally detached from life and because of that, envisaging her ex fiancé dead or hurt. The poem infuses images of death to show the extent of her bitterness, along with enjambment.
Their relationship is doomed from the outset, which is made clear to the audience within the prologue, ‘two star- crossed lovers take their life’. There are many factors that take place prior to this scene that can be argued as contributing to the death of the protagonists but overall the family feud seems to play the leading role. The purpose of this essay is to discuss both the feud and the effects of the other factors on the young lovers’ fragile and fate- driven lives. The scene begins outside the tomb with Paris and his page; he is visiting Juliet with flowers because he is under the illusion that she is dead, ‘Sweet flower, with flowers thy bridal bed I strew’. She is in fact only sleeping for 24 hours as a result of a poison she has taken as part of a plan concocted by her and Friar Lawrence in order to ensure her love for Romeo survives.
“To be or not to be, that is the question; whether’ tis nobler in the mind to suffer...” (Shakespeare Act 3, Scene 1). This quotation proves Hamlet becomes inferior to others and the environment through his madness, causing him to express himself explicitly towards others. Hamlet’s madness not only causes his loved ones lives but it allows his “end” to come because he accepts every challenge from his opponent. Hamlet’s madness not only affects him but Ophelia, who is mentally torn apart by Hamlet. Ophelia was once flawless, but since her encounter with Hamlet she has fallen into the same madness and wants to kill herself.
Romeo was told by Balthasar that Juliet was now living with the angels, and without the letter from the Friar, Romeo did not know Juliet was in fact still alive, and miscommunication once again played a toll on Romeo and Juliet. When Romeo goes to visit Juliet at her tomb he is devastated, he can’t live life without Juliet and decides to kill himself. In his last speech he says “Ah, dear Juliet, Why art thou yet so fair? Shall I believe that unsubstantial death is
The quick encouragement of the marriage to Paris shows Nurse’s new disloyalty to Juliet. Juliet loses Nurse’s respect and feels alone in her decision-making, leading to the Friar’s plan. Overall, Nurse is to blame for Juliet’s death because she turned her back on her so that she could avoid the family
In the same matter Romeo and Juliet is relatable to everyone though the generation gaps which are evident through miscommunication, tradition, and disobedience. Firstly generation gaps are highlighted through the miscommunication between generations. When Juliet is talking with her mother about the death of Tybalt and banishment of Romeo she says: “ indeed I will never be satisfied with Romeo, till I behold him-dead-“. (3,5,94+95) When Juliet says this Lady Capulet figures she is saying she wants Romeo dead because he killed Tybalt her cousin but in fact she is saying that she wants Romeo back so she can be with him again. This relates to many teens worldwide that are misunderstood by their parents about their feelings.
By saying these words to her he is crassly calling her a harlot, and making to appear that he never really loved her. Ophelia made one decision and that was to love Hamlet, and now he is using her actions to make her feel inferior and sinful. Up to this point in the play, Shakespeare depicted Hamlet as a mad man hell-bent on avenging his fathers suspect death, however: his cruel outburst at Ophelia is not a turning point in the story in which he goes from being a hero to being a cold-hearted oppressor. Hamlet tells Ophelia that she will have to ‘marry a fool’ because ‘wise men’ would know better than to marry her; he yells at her ‘get thee to a nunnery’, and yet the way it fits into the plot makes it seem almost expected. As the plot progresses Ophelia begins to lose her mind, resulting in her eventually suicide, but at no point his Hamlet called out for his harsh words against her in a significant way.
