(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s personality drastically changes. At first Romeo was love-sick and Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage. Then they meet, fall in love and get married.
“Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, it might have been.” -Kurt Vonnegut. After reading Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, all one can think about is what might have been. Set in Verona hundreds of years ago, two rival families continue to fight because of an “ancient grudge” (Prologue.3) Two teens, Romeo and Juliet, fall in love, defying their families rules. After only a couple of days, their love cause both of their deaths. Friar Lawrence was the cause of their deaths for his irresponsibility and lack of urgency to solve the conflict he started.
And once Romeo discovered her without knowing she was really alive, he didn’t see much point living without her and ended his life. Shakespeare orchestrated the story and made it that fate would unavoidably kill the two
Romeo, in an act of revenge, kills Tybalt. The Prince, trying to maintain peace, banished Romeo from Verona. The Nurse brought the news to Juliet “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that killed him, he is banished” (Romeo and Juliet 2. 2. 69-70 ) This made Juliet miserable over Romeo's banishment, meanwhile her parents thought her unhappiness was over Tybalt's death.
Even the nurse, who just wants Juliet to be happy, tells her to forget about Romeo and marry Paris. This betrayal hurt Juliet more than anyone else because it forced her to come up with an absurd plan with the Friar to fake her own death to be with Romeo, which did not
She is in fact only sleeping for 24 hours as a result of a poison she has taken as part of a plan concocted by her and Friar Lawrence in order to ensure her love for Romeo survives. Lord and Lady Capulet arrange for Juliet to marry the noble Paris; however Juliet refuses after meeting Romeo at the Capulet ball, ‘proud can I never be of what I hate’. The pair fall in love at first sight, oblivious to the fact that their love is forbidden as a result of the family feud. Romeo approaches Friar Lawrence to ask him to marry them, to which he agrees in the hope that it may resolve the family feud, ‘To turn your household’s rancour to pure love’. This however goes horribly wrong as their secret love affair begins to surface and they are left in torment as they become separated.
Shortly after Romeo meets Juliet, he immediately woos her and kisses her, forgetting entirely about Rosaline, his previous love. This portrays that Romeo only judges her on her looks and nothing whatsoever on her personality. Their experience of love at firs sight was so intense that they forgot to even tell each other their
Her decision to take her own life once she finds Romeo dead was a selfish act which was also both careless and thoughtless. Both their emotions took over and they became rather oblivious to their surroundings. Romeo and Juliet had an impulsive relationship which took some part in their death. When they first met at the Masque Ball, they were infatuated with each other at first sight: “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight!
Juliet there weds her loving Romeo. Immediately after, Juliet must return home. Juliet is impulsive when she causes death. Wanting to fake her death so she could be with Romeo, Juliet is taking a big risk. Romeo was not aware of the plan so he thought her death was real.
Now think about Romeo’s “love at first sight” with Juliet, they cannot get enough of each other, weakened at each other’s disappearance. This is an example of an impulse relationship. They don’t care about their feuding families; they just want to be
