Fate is commonly overlooked as being the sole cause of their deaths, but in my opinion it is what brought the two lovers to their end. Throughout the play it reveals that their lives will end by their influences and actions, "A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life". This unavoidable aspect may have made Romeo and Juliet fall in love just to end the feud between the two houses. An important act of fate to consider would be the masquerade ball, if Romeo wasn’t wearing a mask Juliet would have realised who he was and may have not fallen in love with him. Romeo was too young to realise that he should have waited until he got over Rosaline before he became involved with Juliet.
Lord Capulet was the one who allowed Romeo to stay at the Capulet party, where Romeo met Lord Capulet’s daughter, Juliet (1:5:64). He could have forced Romeo out of the party; therefore, he never would have met Juliet, and no one would have died for their love. Juliet would have married Paris without a reason to seek the Friar’s advice. In addition, Prince Escalus also “lost a brace of kinsmen” due to the feud between the Capulets and Montagues (5:3:294). Other families have suffered losses because of the feud between these two families that lasted for generations.
“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.
Friar Lawrence could have been blamed for giving Juliet the potion, but it was Thomas 3 Juliet's fault because she made him give her the potion. The apothecary could be to blame, but he only gave Romeo the poison because he needed the money; Romeo was at fault for bribing the apothecary. It could’ve been the Nurse’s fault since she betrayed Juliet and told her to marry Paris, causing her to go ask Friar Lawrence for help, yet Juliet was at fault because she lied to the Nurse and said she was going to go ask for forgiveness, that way the Nurse could not help prevent her death. Various things could've prevented their deaths, but if you go back into the root of the problem you will find that Romeo and Juliet were accountable for their own deaths. Romeo and Juliet died horrible deaths.
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. John Proctor is the tragic hero of the play, “The Crucible.” He has a high social status in the town, yet, because of his tragic flaw, he cannot bring himself to prevent his own death and tragic downfall. Proctor exhibits these tragic traits, making this play a tragedy of self-respect prevailing over shame and public
At first, Brabantio believes that his daughter was tricked by Othello, that he stole her away with his magic spells and witchcraft. However, in reality, Desdemona had wanted to marry Othello all along, despite their differences and her father’s warnings. Desdemona let herself marry a man of which her father did not approve. This witchcraft Brabantio believes Othello possesses is advice to Desdemona. This acted as a warning that Desdemona should never have become involved with such a “Moor”.
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.
There is thy gold.” (5.1.78-84). This explains a key part in this whole accident. If the apothecary hadn't been shady and sold Romeo the drink that would end up killing him then this whole accident could have been avoided once Juliet awoke. If Romeo didn't have a way to commit suicide then he would have eventually found out Juliet wasn't dead but more so just pretending. The apothecary should be blamed just as much as Friar Laurence for this accident because of the way he treated the situation and let his greed get the better of
The first words that we here from Tybalt was that he hates hell as all Montagues. Tybalt wanted to kill Romeo just for coming to the party. As Tybalt watch the Montagues drive away from the Capulets party he said “I will withdraw but this intrusion shall, now seeming sweet, convert to bitterest gall.” If Romeo had of told Tybalt of his love for Juliet, Tybalt would have killed Romeo at the first site of him but he did not so it was not Romeos love that killed Tybalt. Tybalt did not really care if he killed any of the Montagues but because Tybalt killed Mercutio Romeo killed Tybalt
Also in the play Tybalt was basically asking to be killed because he started with them for no reason. Before Romeo killed Tybalt Lord Capulet actually liked Romeo and Tybalt wanted him to not make him like him anymore and it worked. And now Juliet has to lie to her father about everything and how she wants to marry Paris but she really wants to marry Romeo. So Tybalt basically ruined everything that Juliet wanted. Yes, Romeo does help us see them as complex human beings because it puts together how Tybalt and everyone else in the story and how they are all connected and how they all are different in the
