Romeo and Juliet In Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, they experience love and violence throughout the play. When Romeo sees Juliet for the first time they fall in love almost instantly which leads to killing and deaths later on. The actions of the adults and children caused Romeo and Juliet to die because of their miscommunications with Romeo and the feud between the parents and the Capulets. In addition, with Tybalt’s arrogance to fight Romeo. To start off, the parents fighting with the Capulets led to the death of Romeo and Juliet.
69-70 ) This made Juliet miserable over Romeo's banishment, meanwhile her parents thought her unhappiness was over Tybalt's death. Then, Juliet's parents, trying to make her happy, moved up her wedding date, only to make her even more depressed due to the fact she was already married to Romeo. All of this led up to Juliet's fake death, which caused both of their deaths. Romeo and Juliet are at fault for their own deaths. Romeo and Juliet did not have to keep their love a secret.
Frontrunners for this distinction are: The Family Feud, the star- crossed lovers were doomed from the start entirely because of their families’ hatred of one another. Fate, because the Prologue suggests this when it calls them "star-crossed lovers" and talks about "their death-mark'd love" Lack of perspective, they were young, and they could not see past their terror of living without each other to make the correct choice and go on living. If they didn’t rush into things, they probably would have ended up together in the end. Love, the love between Romeo and Juliet not only gave them happiness, but it also caused them pain and heartache, and eventually their lives. Impetuousness, if they had only waited then time would have kept them apart and alive.
The Capulets And Montagues: The Ones To Truly Blame Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy where the four teenagers die because of a feud going on between two noble families. Their death is a mix everyone’s fault, but it is mainly the Capulets and Montagues fault. Although the two families thought they were doing good for their children, they were hateful towards each other, too stubborn to try to resolve the feud, and Lord and Lady Capulet were very hard on Juliet when she refused to marry Paris. The Capulets and Montagues thought the feud wouldn’t do any harm, but the hate towards each other caused the four teenagers to die. For instance, Shakespeare says: Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay or scene, From
Though they do not always work in concert, each of these societal institutions in some way present obstacles for Romeo and Juliet. The enmity between their families, coupled with the emphasis placed on loyalty and honor to kin, combine to create a profound conflict for Romeo and Juliet, who must rebel against their heritages. With evidence from one of Romeo and Juliet’s most famous line; “O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?” (II.ii.33), it is manifest that the ancient grudge serves to create a dramatic obstacle which demands the lovers to rue their roots and rebel against authority, in context of their families. This is expressed in a well-known phrase; “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose/ By any other word would smell as sweet;” (II.ii.43-44).
These examples show that the animosity seen in Romeo and Juliet is also relevant in today’s society, because it has resulted in many unnecessary deaths. First, the cruel animosity between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s created obstacles for their children, Romeo and Juliet, which ultimately lead to the couple’s final act of suicide. For example, Romeo and Juliet’s love for one another was so strong and powerful. However, this was a big problem because the animosity between the Montague’s and Capulet’s was so profound, that they could not stand the sight of one another. This hatred had been around for centuries: Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, here civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
This betrayal hurt Juliet in many ways, and it hurt her parents a little too, as this would soon lead to her death. The first way that this betrayal hurt Juliet is that she was forced to marry someone she did not love, and completely forget about Romeo, her husband. Lord Capulet does not care about Juliet's feelings when he hears that Juliet does not want to get married. All he wants is money and a good connection to the Prince. He did not always think like this though.
Although Friar Lawrence’s intentions were good, his decisions and actions were the sole cause of Romeo and Juliet’s death. Do you agree? Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is the story of two young lovers who fall for one another only to realise that due to the feud their families’ share their love is destined for destruction. With all good intentions the minor character, Friar Lawrence was one of, but not the complete cause of their tragic end. There are three dominant aspects of their deaths, the feud between the two families, Friar Lawrence and most importantly, fate.
Antigone ends up defying Creon (and therefore the state) after several instances of attempting to change Creon's decision, claiming how her brother had earned a proper burial, and eventually going so far as to bury him herself (which is again revealed through dialogue as opposed to external action) – an act which would eventually cause her death. Antigone's greatest fault lays in her stubbornness to give up on her desires; as noble as her intentions were, it was her inability to concede her desires that led to her ultimate
That event, for both men, was the start of their downfall. They both hurt their family and their country. Their wives committed suicide because they couldn’t deal with the grief and wrong doing of themselves and their spouses. Although there are many similarities between Oedipus and Macbeth, there are also many differences. Macbeth willingly fulfills his prophecies knowing that he will gain power and absolute control over Scotland.
