Lord Capulet essentially endorsed Juliet’s relationship with Romeo without even knowing it. The quarrel between the families caused them to lose their progenies. The deaths of beloved Romeo and Juliet were due to the, “Capulet[‘s and] Montague[‘s], [...] hate, that Heaven [found] means to kill [their] joys with love!” (V.3.315-317) The dispute between the Capulet’s and the Montague’s made Romeo and Juliet’s love less achievable; their love was quite tenacious that they killed themselves to be together. In an acute argument between Juliet and her father, Lord Capulet demanded that she was to, “go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church or [he would] drag [Juliet] on a hurdle thither” (III.5.173-174). Lord Capulet was in dismay when Juliet repudiated marrying Paris, that she only longed for true love.
From the scene, it is shown that Benvolio is a caring friend and is considerate of Romeo’s feelings. This is implied when Benvolio breaks up the fight going on between Romeo and Mercutio after Mercutio says: “For this driveling love is like a great natural that runs lolling up and down to hide his bauble in a hole”(2.4.93-95). Benvolio stops this argument from continuing due to the likeliness that these words are hurting Romeo. During this scene, it is also implied that Benvolio is a good singer when Mercutio says, “He fights as you sing / prick-song, keeps time, distance, and proportion” (2.4.21-22).While explaining Tybalt’s fencing skills, he brings up Benvolio’s singing ability as a comparison, implying that Benvolio is a talented vocalist. During Act 2, Scene 4 of Romeo and Juliet, Mercutio and Benvolio are characterized
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.
Then the Capulets appear and Tybalt starts to talk. He challenges Romeo to a duel (scene 1 lines 20-25) but Mercutio being a good friend accepts it for him. Mercutio is winning but then Romeo steps in bravely and stops them. This distraction lets Tybalt reach between Romeo's arm and stabs Mercutio enough to watch him bleed out. Romeo tells Tybalt he will pay and join Mercutio on the way to heaven.
Romeo doesn’t want any trouble with Tybalt. He tells Mercutio to go, and to stop teasing Tybalt, as he knows that Tybalt, being an expert swordsman, will fight Mercutio to the death, with Tybalt defeating Mercutio: “Draw Benvolio…Hold Tybalt. Good Mercutio.” Sct 3 Scene 1 Line 87-91. This shows Romeo is protective over his friends. With Mercutio now dead, as a result of Tybalt’s thrust under Romeo’s arm, Romeo is very annoyed and wants to take
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
Romeo and Juliet see each other for the first time and they fell in love instantly. When Romeo first meets Juliet he says, “Then move not while my prayer effect I take. Thus from my lips, my sin is pug’d” (1.5.104-105). After this he kisses Juliet and a little while later he kisses her again. This quote is a paradox because while reading this the reader can apprehend that the unintended meeting was not as bad as it should have been.
"(act I, scene iv, 53) Romeo quickly decides that he is in love with Juliet even though he has not yet spoken to her. In this example he uses only physical appearances to judge his feelings. True love can not be judged by appearances. You can not want to marry someone simply because they were very pretty. Also Romeo on two separate occasions states that he loves a girl.
A hero suffers an extreme reversal of fortune, from great success to abysmal failure, which causes immense suffering. Brutus suffers from knowing that what he did to Caesar was wrong, so he kills himself. He thought that killing Caesar was a great success to Rome, which then leads to a dreadful failure, the people of Rome saying that what he did was dishonorable. After his failure, he decides to let Caesar not suffer anymore, “Caesar, now be still; I kill’s not thee with half so good a will.”(V, 5 50-1) After his dreadful failure, his final suffering entered his life, “I know my hour is come,” (V, 5 19) Brutus’s immense suffering and only escape was death, and suffered his death honorably. A tragic flaw is a weakness that makes a hero susceptible to mistake, which brings on the fate of personal tragedy.
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).
