The Impetuousness of Romeo The play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare presents the moral and social shaping of Romeo’s personality. Through the text Romeo continuously makes illogical decisions that all lead to his death. Romeo’s down fall is a result of irrational and impulsive behaviour he displayed throughout the text. This is conveyed when Romeo consumed in anger killed Tybalt, when Romeo fought with Paris without knowing who he was fighting and when Romeo killed himself not realizing Juliet was still alive. This is some of the proof in the text of Romeo’s impulsiveness.

ROMEO AND JULIET Good vs. Evil Discuss how the motif is seen throughout Romeo and Juliet. There are many motifs in Romeo and Juliet but one of the most influencial and reoccuring ones is "Good vs. Evil." "Part fools-Benvolio" "Turn thee, Benvolio; look upon thy death-Tybalt"(1.1) These quotes show that Benvolio,good, is trying to keep the peace but the fiery Tybalt,evil, is just starting up the fight again.
His aggression leads to his own “untimely death”. In Act 3 Scene 1, “Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries/ That thou hast done me. Therefore, turn and draw.” Tybalt would not accept Romeo’s peace and decides to challenge him to a duel, only to mortally wound Mercutio. His actions spur Romeo into impetuous thinking which saw him kill Tybalt in an act of revenge. Tybalt, indeed, had a serious impact on the lives of Romeo and Juliet, by killing Mercutio.
This happiness is sharply contrasted to the sadness and anger that takes over, when Balthasar tells Romeo of Juliet’s death. The true tragedy is that the reader knows Friar Lawrence sent a message to Romeo telling him of Juliet’s fake death and that Romeo had not yet received the news. Balthasar’s news results in Romeo immediately buying poison and rushing to Verona with the intent of dying beside Juliet. “A dram of poison; such soon-speeding gear/As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead” (5.1, 63-65). It is through all of these errors and mistakes that the plot of Act 5, Scene 1 helps to make Romeo and Juliet a true tragedy.
The story goes on to tell about how the gods toy around with the humans, and take sides over each other that other gods may not like. This intervention by gods is a frequent occurrence in both works. The gods occasionally have wars between themselves too, such as when Zeus helps the Trojans in the war against the Greeks, after an appeal to him by Thetis, Achilles’ mother. Zeus’s wife, Hera is loyal to the Greeks, and the two of them have a little fight. The battle between gods is also apparent in the Odyssey when Zeus sends Hermes to rescue Odysseys from the island of Calypso.

In this essay, I will look at the role of Friar Lawrence in Romeo and Juliet – in particular, the eventual tragic deaths of the “star-crossed” lovers – and the manner in which Shakespeare uses Friar Lawrence as a means to challenge ideas of fate and light/darkness through his use of language, imagery and metaphor. From the first appearance of Friar Lawrence in Act 2 Scene 3, we can see that he uses a lot of contrasts which help to depict the dramatic contrasts in the entire play. His statements such as, “eastern clouds with streaks of light; and flecked darkness like a drunkard reels” and “baleful weeds and precious-juiced flowers” show that Friar Lawrence helps to set-up the contrasts within the entire play, and that he hints towards the eventual deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The contrasts between ‘tomb’ and ‘womb’ in the line “the earth that’s nature’s mother is her tomb; what is her burying grave, that is her womb”, also show for the audience that the fate of Romeo and Juliet is almost foretold and that despite the play resulting in their deaths, their families will begin a new ‘life’ as allies.

In reality, knowledge of literary terms is crucial to successful reading comprehension. Our class discussions demonstrated to me that we must use critical and analytical thinking to identify the main argument or line of reasoning in literary works. When doing so, we must assess how much the evidence or examples used proved the point the author contended and to always think a line of reasoning through to its logical conclusion. The mandatory lengthy essays and research papers that you required us to use in the writing process were actually meant to inconspicuously alleviate the stresses of writing college research papers which are commonly ten pages or more. As I reflectively reminisce about my senior year at Vicksburg High, I can actually expound the five steps of the writing process: First, there is prewriting which mainly involves brainstorming.
