‘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. ‘The reason that I have to love thee.’ The audience know that Romeo must love Tybalt because they are now related. The other characters did not know about the wedding and are confused by what Romeo is saying. The dramatic irony in this scene makes it such an intense scene to watch. It is also a significant scene because it leads to Mercutio fighting Tybalt and Mercutios death.
In the play ‘Romeo and Juliet’, William Shakespeare brings to the audience a strong idea of ‘fate’. Shakespeare tells the tale of two star crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, whose short romance is plagued with tragedy. One of the main themes and significant factors in Romeo and Juliet is fate. This indicates that Romeo and Juliet's life could be influenced by some power other than their own. During Shakespeare's time most Elizabethans believed in fate and the idea that everything would eventually fall into place.
Romeo misunderstands this and believes Juliet is dead. He then buys a poison for himself and kills himself when Juliet wa playing dead. Juliet wakes up to find Romeo dead and even though Friar Lawrence pleads with her to refrain from killing herself, Juliet stabs herself and dies with Romeo. Friar Lawrence was always in favour of the two lovers and he did his best to bring good to them. However, fate changed his good intentions for the worse ans brought much tragedy to the lives of Romeo and
In this essay I am going to explain how the theme of love has been presented in Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare shows many different types of love from the unreturned love between Romeo and Rosaline to true love between Romeo and Juliet. Their love was hard ending in a tragic death. Elizabethans believed that true love is one that happens at first sight, like Romeo and Juliet. At the very beginning of Romeo and Juliet, before the play even starts, Shakespeare uses a prologue to give us an outline of what happens during the play.
Friar Laurence knows that Romeo and Juliet have feelings for each other. Friar Laurence is even the man that was willing to marry Romeo and Juliet. While Romeo and Friar Laurence were waiting for Juliet on the altar, Friar Laurence tells Romeo,“These violent delights have a violent ends/ And in their triumph die.” (2.5.9-10) Friar Laurence knows that their marriage will bring about consequences, and he still chose to marry them. If Friar Laurence didn’t marry Romeo and Juliet, their deaths wouldn’t have occurred. After Romeo is banished from Verona, Friar Laurence helps Juliet come up with a plan for her not to marry Paris.
In contrast, a difference is when Juliet doesn’t threaten to kill herself with her knife in Friar‘s cell. Juliet says in Act IV, scene i, “And with this knife I’ll help it presently. (shows him a knife)” (Shakespeare IV, i 212). This part is important to notice because Juliet threatening to commit suicide shows how devoted she is to Romeo. Shakespeare intended the readers of the play to see this passage and realize that Juliet is truly in love with Romeo.
Shakespeare effectively creates dramatic irony in this scene which creates a strong sense of humor. After Romeo leaves Juliet, Juliet is found crying by Lady Capulet. Lady Capulet thinks that Juliet is mourning over Tybalts death, but is actually mourning over Romeo’s exile. Lady Capulet starts comforting Juliet by telling her that they will get revenge on Romeo for slaying Tybalt, Juliet replies by saying she will never be satisfied with Romeo until she beholds him-dead,(Shakespeare 3.5 ll. 87-93).
Relationships in Act One In Act One of Romeo and Juliet, several types of relationships are seen. There is hate and conflict between the Montagues and the Capulets. This story also shows strong bonds and friendship between Benvolio and Romeo. Juliet shares a relationship with the Nurse who is like a mentor to her. Lastly, Romeo and Juliet share an almost impossible romantic relationship.
All people need to learn valuable lessons in life. In his play, Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare writes of valuable life lessons and shows how young people should act and not act in order to avoid tragedy. The author uses the characters Tybalt, Romeo and Juliet to prove his thesis. Shakespeare uses Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet to prove that being hot-headed gets you nowhere in life. When Tybalt sees Romeo, he says to the servant, “This, by his voice, should be a Montague, Fetch me my rapier boy” (page 41).
Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s tragic duo of love; in every tragedy, those that are having the time of their lives meet their eminent downfall in the very end. As the Prince states in the play, those responsible will be punished for the deaths of the love birds, Romeo and Juliet. But who was the one responsible for the faith of Romeo and Juliet? Well Juliet would be held responsible for reasons such as Juliet was secretive about her relationship with Romeo throughout most of the play, Juliet was also under the control of love, and also because Juliet also made the wrong decision after her fight with her dad. Throughout the story, (Romeo and) Juliet have been secretive about their relationship.
