Romeo and Juliet Died of Human Action and Not Fate

One method which bad decisions affect the outcome of Romeo and Juliet is Romeos inability to select the best option. Romeos actually in love with the idea of love not in love itself.

This is apparent when he first fulfills Juliet; he simply had his heart broken by another woman.

To please “love” he will not do anything in the rational basic way, why didn’t he go to ask Capulet to court his child? Did he need to sneak under her veranda the first night? Would the families have kept them apart if he had approached them? Romeo needs to satisfy the fairytale he has actually formed around the word love.Romeo thinks that what must take place will take place, he likes Juliet they need to get wed. That choice alone had a big part in their ends as it requires Juliet to do something to prevent her marriage to Paris. Why was it required to marry so soon? It simply wasn’t, it was a naive view of how things work. Romeo killed Tybalt, true it was self-defense but due to the choices of others previous to their encounter it was the final stroke for the Prince who right away banish Romeo even if he knew Romeo was a good person. In a best world that would not have occurred, since it is not the world as Romeo sees it he is now eradicated.

His banishment causes another countless amount of errors, such as purchasing an unlawful potion from the apothecary who he coincidental seemed to observe would offer it to him due to his lack of cash. It was a really poor choice to go immediately to her burial place to kill himself, it had just been a couple of days they had known each other and he put no believed into eliminating himself to be with her? His worst choice was not considering the repercussions of his actions before he was facing them. Juliet is likewise responsible for the outcome of the situation.She was not as straight accountable however she added mistakes of her own to the problem. The exact same defect in them both about love being all effective and immediate manifests itself in her the opening night they meet and much more so on her terrace when she is speaking with herself and Romeo overhears. This puts Romeo in a position to influence whatever and to skip most of their courtship, causing them eloping and slipping behind their moms and dads. Slipping behind their parents back was entirely unnecessary is Romeo or Juliet had actually advance and inquired for approval.

Juliet accepts the friar’s concept of utilizing the potion when she might have just as easily and without the danger of the potion being too strong or being buried alive by running away. Was that needed? Juliet likewise made the mistake of falling for Romeo in mere minutes which lead to him returning the feelings when he found a girl that enjoyed him in return. Juliet’s largest error is sustaining Romeos idea of love and positioning herself in its method. A third example of poor decision making is by lesser characters, although less important their errors impact Romeo and Juliet in a huge way.Sampson and Gregory beginning a fight triggered the prince to hit his limitation and declare death on the next person to disrupt the peace in Verona. Mercutio makes 2 major errors affecting Romeo, to start with was to tell Romeo to play the field and go to the celebration regardless of his feelings, leading to him meeting and kissing Juliet. A 2nd mistake Mercutio made was to eliminate Tybalt, when he passed away Tybalt just wanted to keep going and eliminate Romeo also.

When the Prince discovers Romeo has actually killed Tybalt, even if Tybalt was at fault he must keep his guarantee and banishes Romeo to Mantua.Romeos banishment is what results in the desperate plans of both Romeo and Juliet. Tybalt was likewise a poor choice maker, controlled more by emotion and violence then by sense he chose a fight with everyone he met, irritating the Prince and eliminating Mercutio in addition to forcing Romeo into a battle. Capulet and Montague are probably the 2 clearest thinkers in the area however Capulet makes a major mistake when he tells his child she is to marry Paris without asking her. This causes her taking friar Lawrence’s potion. Friar Lawrence is also accountable and shares his part in the bad choice making.He marries Romeo and Juliet, Offers Juliet the potion to pretend she is dead; he does not personally make sure Romeo gets his letter relating to the potion and Juliet.

These to name a few small options impact the amount of fate that actually influences these two star-crossed enthusiasts. The affect fate gets to play in this tale of 2 star-crossed enthusiasts is really little, with all the bad choices made by Romeo, Juliet, Friar Lawrence and many others “seals their fates”. Without all these mistakes and bad choices would it have turned out as such a disaster? No. The deaths of Romeo and Juliet are purely based upon poor choices and not on fate.
