Romeo and Juliet did not have to keep their love a secret. They could have told their parents about their matrimony. Then, Juliet's parents would have canceled her wedding to Paris seeing that she was already married. If this occurred, then Juliet would not have taken the potion, and her death would’ve been prevented, along with Romeo's death. This would have also prevented the way her father wondered, “Doth she not count her blest, Unworthy as she is, that we have wrought so worthy of a gentleman to be her bride?” (Romeo and Juliet 3.
Romeo was too young to realise that he should have waited until he got over Rosaline before he became involved with Juliet. People and feuds influenced their paths and actions but fate is what brought the lovers to their end. "For never was there a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo." Another act of fate was the lack of communication, the letter failing to arrive to Romeo and Juliet being by herself in the tomb. And once Romeo discovered her without knowing she was really alive, he didn’t see much point living without her and ended his life.
“I could not send it-here it is again-(gives FRIAR LAWRENCE a letter) Nor get a messenger to bring it thee, So fearful were they of infection.” If Friar John was able to deliver Friar Lawrence’s letter than Romeo would have been informed on the plan to make Juliet temporarily unconscious and not kill himself. As well as Bathasar telling Romeo, Juliet was dead. This misunderstanding was why Romeo chose to kill himself and felt like he had no reason to live anymore. If Romeo waited a few seconds longer to kill himself than Romeo and Juliet would both still be alive. If Romeo knew about the plan Romeo and Juliet would have lived together without the Montagues and Capulets knowing.
133-134). Hamlet wishes that his body would melt away so he would not have to see Claudius and Getrude together again, and pretend as though all is well. Hamlet explains to us that he does want to die, but he says he can not because, “the Everlasting had not fix'd/His canon against self slaughter!” (I.ii. 134-135). If God had not ruled suicide a mortal sin, Hamlet would have commited suicide at once for what he was going through.
But after her father yells at her and tells her if she doesn’t marry she’ll be kicked out of the house; she goes to Friar Laurence for advice. When Juliet takes the potion Friar Laurence gives her she has to think about it. This is something Romeo probably wouldn’t do. But love over comes her decision and she takes it. Nobody tells Romeo that it’s just a potion and Juliet’s not really died, he buys poison and goes to Juliet’s tomb.
His sense of pride prevented him from admitting to the adultery. Thus, the town did not understand Abigail’s motivation as did Proctor. He could have also prevented his demise if he had chosen to sign the paper. However, he feels that his name is “not worth the dust on the feet of them that hang” and chooses death over humility. This play exhibits tragedy because, though Proctor had many opportunities to change his fate, he chooses his demise because his tragic flaw prohibits him from doing otherwise.
He did not always think like this though. In the beginning of the play, he says “All I want is for Juliet to be happy, so I will have to ask her if she wants to be married” and he says things that implies he does not want Juliet to get married, like saying how young wives do not always turn out happy. So why is he so angry that Juliet does not want to get married? He should listen to what she wants to say, instead of yelling at her, calling her a disgrace to the Capulet name, and “kicking her out on the streets and never providing her with money ever again”. Even the nurse, who just wants Juliet to be happy, tells her to forget about Romeo and marry Paris.
“Friar Lawrence, less ambitious and more desperate than his fellow manipulators, does not hope that Juliet’s death will dissolve the families’ hatreds but only that it will give Romeo and chance to come and carry her off” (Snyder). At this point Romeo and Juliet’s relationship could not solve the problems between the families and the Friar was only uniting them. This is what made the Friar so repulsive. Even now after deaths and family issues, He treated the situation like a game. “Hold, daughter, I do spy a kind of hope, / Which craves as desperate an execution / As that is desperate which we would prevent (4.1.69-71).
When Capulet decided that “[Romeo] shall be endured [and to] take no note of him” at the ball. Had Capulet made Romeo go, Juliet would not have met Romeo. Capulet was at direct fault for Juliet and Romeo’s introduction. Also, Capulet is at blame because of the family feud. Without the feud, Juliet would be free to marry Romeo with no problem.
Tybalt (who is Juliet’s cousin), was killed and her parents believe that is the reason for her heartache and committing suicide. As soon as the nurse discovers that Tybalt is dead her reaction to Juliet is quite troubling and she does not exactly know how to tell her so the end result is her saying, “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that kill’d him, he is banished.” (3.2.69-70). Juliet’s reaction is angry and she is very upset, she
