True love is worth dying for, according to Romeo and Juliet. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the young couple falls in love. Juliet is a Capulet, Romeo is a Montague, and the families are sworn enemies. In the end they both commit suicide because they can’t be with each other. The main causes of Romeo and Juliet’s death are the friar, their own emotions, and their feuding families.
This was careless and senseless of Romeo to do, as a couple of hours ago he was “in love” with Juliet’s cousin Rosaline. He is simply acting on the feelings he has at the moment, and decisions made impulsively or rashly are poor choices and usually result in disaster. Another example of Romeo acting on his impulsive emotions, was when Mercutio had died. This anger had boiled up inside him, and he suddenly had this courage
Romeo was not thinking coherently, which caused him to make an irrational decision. Once again, he acted on impulse, but this time, he ruined his chances at a life with Juliet. If he was not so quick and impatient, he would have seen Juliet wake up. Unfortunately, when Juliet awakes, Romeo is dead which results in her making another irresponsible decision as shown in: “Yea noise? Then I’ll be brief.
One of them, as said before, is his failure to make outcomes; another one of his flaws is his impulsive nature. Romeo, after having just met Juliet, decides he wants to marry her. Friar Lawrence even warned Romeo about moving to fast . Throughout the play, Romeo made many unwise decisions and for all of them, he had to suffer afterwards. Evidence of his impulsive nature is highlighted in his journey to Juliet’s house to express his love for her when he barely knows her.
is laid upon your hate That heaven finds means to kills yours joys with love” (V, iii, 291-293) “For there never was a story of more woe, then this of Juliet and her Romeo” (V, iii, 309-310) Tragedy- Reinforced by the death of Mercutio as it is seen by Levin as quite an ironic end, as he has been the satirist- “represents the play moving from Romantic comedy to Romantic tragedy.” Comparing Comedy & Tragedy- Tragedy tends to isolate where comedy bring together, to reveal the uniqueness of individuals rather than what they have in common with others. Examples have been shown with the progression of Juliet whom begun in tragic settings as an only child mother “But one, poor one, one poor, and loving child” (IV, v. 46) whilst Romeo friar reflects on then as “two in one” (II.iv.37) yet again when taking the potion “my dismal scene I needs must act alone.” (IV.iii. 19) reflected in the setting of each of them dying
With all the things that Friar Lawrence did, none helped the cause with the trouble Romeo had. The Friar had terrible advice he shouldn’t have given to young Romeo. He is a foolish old man who doesn’t know how to just say “No.” One example is that when Romeo came to Friar after crashing the Capulet party and seeing his love, Juliet, he went to Friar and asked him to marry the new couple. Friar agrees to do this act thinking that it would solve the war between the Montagues vs Capluets and this was the first mistake made. This would only make the situation worse once someone in either family would find out.
Who is to blame? By John Magee Romeo and Juliet is one of the most controversial and enduring stories of forbidden love due to Romeo and Juliet’s passionate innocence and their tragedy. Their innocence comes from their age and infatuation, but the tragedy is surely the result of the self-serving, manipulative and at times terrible judgment of Friar Lawrence. Romeo and Juliet’s love faced many obstacles, including a feud between their families, Juliet’s promised marriage to Count Paris, and their own youthful innocence. But if any one person is to blame for their tragic death that person is their most trusted advisor Friar Lawrence.
Love doesn't always have a happy ending. In the play of Romeo and Juliet, the couple are brought to their untimely death. There are many factors to blame for these wretched suicides; the fate that destined unfavourable things to happen, the Priest and the Nurse that encouraged and abetted them and then betrayed them, the conflict between the two families that labelled their love as forbidden, and of course Romeo and Juliet who rebelled against the wishes of their family . Fate is the first major contributor in Romeo and Juliet's passing. In the prologue the story is briefly critiqued, describing Romeo and Juliet as star crossed lovers.
Andrea Kovacic Mrs.Hiripitiyage English 1 3rd Hour Romeo & Juliet In Romeo & Juliet, by William Shakespeare, a pair of star-crossed lovers turn their love for each other into a tragedy. Usually when people rush into love there is not a very good outcome. Also by keeping their love a secret, Romeo and Juliet did not think of their consequences, which then led to their deaths. Romeo & Juliet’s deaths were caused by the Capulets, Romeo, and Friar Lawrence. One of the main reasons as to why Romeo and Juliet died was the feud between the two families, the Capulets and the Montegues.
Tybalt’s threats eventually become a full out issue for Romeo. This leads to the next point. Last, the banishment of Romeo that was indeed Tybalt’s fault. After Romeo killed Tybalt, The Prince announces the punishment of Romeo’s actions, “And for that offence, immediately we do exile him hence”(129). If Tybalt had never threatening Romeo or killed Mercutio he would still be alive, but that is a different issue.
