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.
big dog Mrs. tee World Lit. Honors 27, March 1912 The Tragic Flaw Romeo and Juliet is a tragic play of two star-crossed lovers written by William Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet fall in love and hide their secret relationship from their feuding families. As the play progresses, Romeo starts to act on impulse and his action result in tragic consequences. When people act on impulse it leads to terrible endings and suffering to others.
Indeed, one could view Romeo and Juliet as a transitional play in which Shakespeare merges the comedic elements perfected in his earlier work with tragic elements he would later perfect in the great tragedies -- Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, and King Lear.

The heroes of the play must contend with external forces that impede their relationship, but, unlike the great tragic heroes, they are devoid of the inner struggle that makes for great tragedy. The influential Shakespearean scholar, A.C. Bradley, went so far as to neglect the play entirely in his well-known collection of lectures on the great tragedies, Shakespearean Tragedy. While no one can deny the merits of Shakespeare's powerful, inspired verse, the themes Shakespeare stresses in Romeo and Juliet also seem to reflect his immaturity as a writer.
Fate also predicted “a pair of star-crossed lovers tak[ing] their live[s].” Out of everyone in the play, fate is at most to blame for Juliet’s death because of it’s unavoidable and destined to happen. In conclusion, Friar Laurence, Nurse, Capulet and Fate
Romeo’s own bad decisions lead to the tragedy. Capulet’s poor judgement adds to the catastrophe. Friar Laurence’s terrible choices also lead to the final disaster of the play. Every character’s decisions in the play somehow lead to the deaths of Romeo and
Name Mrs. Thornton English H 2A 19 January 2013 Romeo and Juliet Essay Test Romeo and Juliet is a beautifully written play that has romance, violence, and tragedy.
