Fate In Romeo And Juliet
A servant to Capulet, who is incapable of reading the list of guests, asks for Romeo’s help. Romeo notices that Rosaline, his fan, is among these names. To reveal his appreciation, the servant requests Romeo’s presence at the ball. Romeo should have thought about the servant’s caution; if Romeo occupies the name of Montague, he will not be permitted. When at the ball, Romeo is searching for a maiden to replace the unrequited love of Rosaline. Romeo occurs to gaze upon Juliet, who charms Romeo.
Romeo announces,” Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For ne’er saw real beauty till this night.” (I, v, l 52-53) Since Romeo declares his love for Juliet, she feels the destination likewise. They think that they are in love and must wed. It is fate that Romeo and Juliet were at the very same location, at the same time, for if it weren’t for the servant not being able to read they would not have actually met and married. Benvolio and Mercutio are disscusing the quarrelsome weather.
Benvolio declares, “The day is hot, the Capulets abroad,/ And if we fulfill we will not scape a brawl,/ In the meantime these got days is the mad blood stirring. (III, i, l 2-4) At this moment, Tybalt, who has challenged Romeo because of his appearance at the masquerade, goes into, looking for Romeo. On Romeo’s behalf, Mercutio battles with Tybalt, while Romeo, who is filled with love for his new cousin, attempts to end their boldness. Before leaving, Tybalt plunges his sword into Mercutio, triggering death to fall upon him. Romeo eliminates Tybalt, who teases Romeo, upon his return. Romeo fears he will be condemned to death if he does not leave before the arrival of the Prince. Benvolio recalls the occasions that have happened.
The Prince states: And for that offence/ Instantly we do exile him for this reason./ I hav an in your hate’s proceeding,/ My blood for your impolite brawls doth lie a-bleeding;/ However I’ll amerce you with so strong a fine/ That you will repent the loss of mine./ I will be deaf to pleading and excuses;/ Nor tears nor prayers will acquire out abuses;/ Therefore use none. Let Romeo hence in rush,/ Else, when he’s discovered, that hour is his last./ Bear thus this body and attend our will./ Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill. (III, I, l 185-195).
Due to the disruption of Verona’s street and the losses of Tybalt and Mercutio, the Prince should penalize Romeo. Nevertheless, the Prince concurs that Romeo was acting in self-defense. Juliet, who desires not to wed Paris, requests Friar Laurence’s support. The day before the wedding event, Juliet is to consume the toxin, which will make her seem dead. In forty-two hours she will awake, with Romeo by her side. Romeo will then bring her to Mantua with him. In the meantime Friar Laurence will convey a message to Romeo in Mantua, telling him the plot. When she acquires consciousness, Romeo and Friar Laurence will exist.
Friar Laurence says, “Shall Romeo by my letters understand our drift,/ And hither will he come; and he and I/ Will view thy waking” (IV, i, l 114-116) Following Juliet’s consumption of the toxin, Romeo is expecting news from Verona. Balthasar, a servant to Romeo, tells Romeo that Juliet has handed down. Romeo, who is informed there are no letters from the friar, seeks a method to achieve his suicide. Meanwhile, Friar Laurence, confronts Friar John, who was to deliver the letter to Romeo. Friar John notifies Friar Laurence that he was seeking another Franciscan, who was visiting the sick, to accompany him to Mantua.
He says, “Believing that we both were in a house/ Where the infectious plague did reingn,/ Seal had actually up the doors, and would not let us forth;/” (V, ii, l 9-11) Friar John informs that he might find nobody to deliver the letter, for worry they might capture the infection. The significant occasions that motivate the conclusion of Romeo and Juliet are; the Capulet ball, the quarrel experienced by Tybalt and Romeo, and Friar John’s plague. The Capulet ball influences the ending of the play by Romeo’s invite at the ball, which produces the meeting of Romeo and Juliet.
The ball also gives birth to Tybalt’s anger and triggers his challenge. The obstacle triggers the banishment of Romeo, which produces much grieving by Juliet and Romeo. Also, the quarrelsome weather condition is partially to blame for the feuding between Tybalt and Mercutio. Considering That Friar John did not provide the letter, Romeo thinks that Juliet is dead, sacrifices himself. Juliet seeing that Romeo is dead, slays herself also. In conclusion Romeo and Juliet is a classical disaster where the terrible fate of the characters is brought upon by circumstances beyond their control.
