"Romeo and Juliet" is a compelling love story written by William
Shakespeare who is known as one of the best poets and scriptwriters. In
"Romeo and Juliet", the tragic ending makes it an even more complex love
story, whether it happened by accident, fate, or their own faults.
A couple reasons why this story could of happened by accident is
because Friar John couldn't deliver the message to Romeo since Muntua was
being under Quarantine, and Romeo learns only of Juliet's supposed death
from his Balthasar. Also it's caused by accident because Romeo fought
Tybalt and killed him. The quote I chose for the accident is said by Tybalt
and Romeo: "Tybalt-"thou, wretched boy, that didst consort him here, Shalt
with him hence." Romeo-"this shall determine that") (3.1.137-140). I chose
this quote because Romeo killed Tybalt and was banished.
The tragic ending could also be caused by fate.
Romeo and Juliet fell
in love with each other. Romeo was a Montague and Juliet was a Capulet, so
they fell in love with the enemy. If Romeo never went to the Capulet party,
he never would have met Juliet and therefore if he never had met Juliet the
ending of the story wouldn't be the same. The quote I chose to pick is said
by Romeo and it is "By a name I know not how to tell thee who I am. My
name, dear saint, is hateful to myself, because it is an enemy to thee. Had I it
written, I would tear the word."(2.2.59-63). I chose this Quote because their
names is what separates them and if they weren't enemies none of this stuff
would of happened.
The ending of the story could also be Romeo and Juliet's
own fault because Romeo bought the poison and Juliet wasn't even dead. So
it could have been Romeo's fault because he drank the poison kind of quick
and if he waited a little longer he would have realized that Juliet wasn't
really dead, and they would have lived happily ever after. The Quote I used
for their own faults is "My life were better ended by their hate then death
prorogued, wanting of thy love."(2.2.86-87). I chose this Quote because they
fell in love to quickly.
"Romeo and Juliet" ends in a tragic ending that could have had many
different outcomes. It could have been caused by accident, fate, or their own
fault, but which ever one it was the end was sad and ended in death for both
Romeo and Juliet.
