Throughout the play, "Romeo and Juliet" one constant theme is conflict . In the prologue, the term "Ancient grudge", tells the audience that the conflict between capulets and montegues has been going on for generations. I have found that the most interesting conflicts during the story were when Mercutio picked a fight with Tybalt and ended up losing his life and in the very beginning of the play where the servants of the two houses started a fight out of a simple argument. In the servant's brawl, the Capulet servants picked a fight in the streets by "biting their thumbs" at the Montague servants. It then escalates to a full blown battle with even the ladies and lords getting involved .In the end, the Prince intervened and said "If ever you disturb our streets again your lives will pay the forfeit of the peace " (If you fight again you will be killed ) The most serious conflict was definitely the scene where Mercutio picks a fight with Tybalt.
The most basic is the ongoing clash between the Montague and Capulet families. In the chorus, one is told that the feud has been going on for centuries. Therefore, members of both families are predisposed to think badly of one another. Romeo and Juliet, by Shakespeare, is a play, which shows how prejudice leads to escalating violence. Prejudice leads to violence shown in the play when the feuding families, the Montagues and Capulets fight.
But this causes the students to hide their feelings, and causes a lot of the bullies students to hide their increasingly depressive and angry feelings and as it already well known, people who mask their true feelings can do more harm than good. If schools would pay more attention to dramatic changes in the person’s behavior rather than penalizing the smallest action, they could maybe weed out the true causes of the bullying and things would not turn out to end in severe action, or possibly even end in a student’s suicide. If students would become more interested in looking at themselves, instead of looking for faults in their fellow classmates, they would see that bullying does not make them better that their victims, but actually makes them the same, or even lower. Most of the time
Bad luck, can be defined as an inescapable and often conflicting results; destiny. Romeo and Juliet were ultimately the ones responsible for their own deaths looking from a destined point of view. On the other hand, the death of the two are partly caused by bad management. The fact that Romeo and Juliet got married knowing that there was a bitter feud between their two families. This feud brought problems along with it, such as the killing of Tybalt by Romeo.
Growing up I was bullied plenty of times by insensitive students. The bullying and mocking affected me to the point where I didn’t want to go to school. However, with advice from my parents I learned to ignore the bullying and mocking because I was better than
In the case of this play, the reader could argue that Eddie's tragic flaw is either denial or, to begin with, the incestuous feelings for his niece, Catherine. Most of the time, the damage caused by a tragic hero's downfall usually hurts not just himself but often his community and family around him are strongly affected as well. Once again, Eddie's betrayal does both of these things. Firstly, his community was affected because Marco shouted to all the neighbours in the surrounding scene that Eddie killed his children, or so he claimed. Marco made these claims because he was so furious at Eddie’s betrayal and hence wanted to make Eddie seem as a villainous character.
Romeo and Juliet Prologue The prologue introduces the play and both its conflict and resolution. Therefore, the play will be about why and how the tragedy occurs, not what happens Characters |None Families fight | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Themes |Fate |Star crossed lovers (6) | |Violence |Civil blood  ancient grudge  suicide  | |Love |Death marked love  | | | | ACT 1 SCENE 1 This scene demonstrates how bitter and deep the problem between the families is. Two Capulet servants deliberately provoke a fight with servants from the House of Montague. This escalates to a major struggle involving even the heads of the families. The brawl also rouses the long suffering citizens of Verona who arm themselves to try and break up the fight.
Shakespeare presents the feud between the two families as unnecessary, wasteful and it is the cause of death for many characters but without this hatred the final uniting of the two families could no have been possible. The fight is seen to be “a plague o’ both [the] houses…[and] they have made worms’ meat of”(A3, S1, L107-109) many of the characters. The Montague and Capulet’s hatred also affected the play’s final outcome because of the consequence behind their hateful actions. The grief that comes with loss, Romeo’s banishment and other events that take place all present the fact that “all are punished” (A5, S3, L294) for the violence. The hatred between the Montagues and Capulets also led to their love being forbidden, if the two families were not enemies than the death of Romeo and Juliet would never have taken place but in the end their death ultimately brought the families together.
Because of the families non-acceptance from an out-dated feud it results in the death of Romeo and Juliet, as it proclaims in the prologue “from forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life”. The events and prejudices surrounding their situation
