Down with the Montagues!”(Page 11). Both groups are constantly hostile to each other, and continue fighting simply because it is all they have ever known. But conflict occurs when the rules are broken between this ongoing feud when two star-crossed lovers finally meet. Romeo shares a bond with his best friend Benvolio, a nephew to Montague and a cousin and friend to Romeo. Benvolio attempts to stop the fight between the servants at the beginning of the play.
He is now angry with Tybalt and wants revenge. ‘Fire-eyed fury be my conduct now.’ Romeos change in mood is significant as it leads to the death of Tybalt and Romeo being banished . Shakespeare also uses dramatic irony to make Act 3 Scene 1 such an intense and significant scene. When Romeo refuses to fight Tybalt all the other characters are confused as to why. ‘Good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as my own.’ The audience know the reason why Romeo won’t fight Tybalt, which is because Romeo and Juliet are now married.
Bad luck, can be defined as an inescapable and often conflicting results; destiny. Romeo and Juliet were ultimately the ones responsible for their own deaths looking from a destined point of view. On the other hand, the death of the two are partly caused by bad management. The fact that Romeo and Juliet got married knowing that there was a bitter feud between their two families. This feud brought problems along with it, such as the killing of Tybalt by Romeo.
Romeo's characterization causes him to disregard the possible consequences of the secretive marriage because he lives in the moment and only cares about his love for Juliet. Later on, the consequences come around full circle as Romeo is faced with banishment when he kills a man out of revenge. The man slays Romeo's close friend, Mercutio, causing him to be overcome with emotion and it motivates him to avenge Mercutio's death. Proving to be a crime of passion, Romeo kills Mercutio's murderer in the middle of town during a rash fury when he has no regards for what punishment he may receive. Towards the end of the play, Romeo visits Juliet in her tomb and, believing she is dead, drinks a
The play introduces the primary characters and their ongoing feud with each other, which eventually leads to the fatal death of the two main characters. In addition, the rhyming couplet at the end begs the audience to be patient and to pay attention to the play, because if they don’t understand, the “toil” of the actors will surely clear up any misunderstandings. In Act One Scene One, hate is the strong emotion that emerges before love; Shakespeare introduces the emotion of hatred before love because it lays the foundation and also established the feud between the two houses, so the audience can see how hard Romeo’s love for Juliet is later on in the play. Shakespeare’s ironic use of the sonnet tells the audience that ‘A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life’; this spoils the ending of the play by subtly saying that both Romeo and Juliet are going to die in the end. During Elizabethan times the stars were thought to control people’s destinies, being ‘star-cross’d’ or against the stars, creates a sense of fate.
He speaks of how only the deaths of two star crossed lovers will break the violence, although it is said in a way that will not be noticed by those viewing the play for the first time. Plays in Shakespeare’s time were viewed many times, as it was the only available source of entertainment. Romeo and Juliet, sometimes referred to as the most tragic love story of all, is a story of young love between two people in families engaged in a deadly feud. The families fight in public at the start of the play, resulting in a death penalty from prince Escales if the peace of Verona is disturbed again. Meanwhile, Romeo, the son of Lord Montague, gatecrashes a masquerade ball hosted by Lord Capulet in honour for a potential marriage between his daughter Juliet and a wealthy man named ‘Paris’.
As soon as the nurse finds out that Tybalt is dead her reaction is very troubling and she doesn’t exactly know how to break it to Juliet so at the end result she says, “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that kill’d him, he is banished.” (3.2.69-70). This quote is a literal and a grammatical structure because Juliet is very upset but angry as well, she is young and she doesn’t exactly known what to do in the situation. Romeo’s blamed for the death of Tybalt. Fat occurs again when Romeo comes to the understanding that Juliet is dead and he kills himself too. At the start of the play Romeo dreams that if he goes to
Analysis of Act Three Scene Five of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet, by Shakespeare, tells the tragic tale of two “young star crossed lovers” who unintentionally engage in innocent love, amid the hatred between their two feuding families. This is a ply which also shows how prejudice leads to escalating violence. Prejudice leads to violence like experienced in the play by two feuding families the montages and the Capulet fight. The prologue, warns us, the audience at the beginning of the play how these lovers will end up taking their. own lives After reading the play and watching two versions of the film adaptation Romeo and Juliet, I will now focus on how effective Shakespeare dramatic techniques are in on Act Three, Scene five.
Tybalt and Romeo fighting which leads to Tybalt’s death. The feud is much more exciting because the prologue gives the audience knowledge of Romeo and Juliet’s love and the extent of it where they die but it doesn’t mention the extent of the feud and how the feud is the catalyst which starts everything off by causing many deaths to both the Montagues and the Capulets families. So the feud brings the audience to the edge of their seats because they don’t know the full extent of the feud and what other events it causes. There are also many scenes which are to do with love e.g. the balcony scene which gives the audience an example of the strong affection they share.
Romeo decides that whatever happens is up to fate and it’s completely out of his control. Also, after killing Tybalt, he calls himself “Fortune’s fool” and realizes he will be punished severely (3.1.142). Romeo is basically says he is a subject to the whims of fate. He thinks fate is playing around with him and not taking responsibility for what he himself did. However when he hears of Juliet’s “death” Romeo tries to “defy the stars” and kills himself (5.1.25).
