Romeo and Juliet essay by William Shakespea. Essay question: Why did 'The pair of star-crossed lovers' take their lives?
The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is one of the most dramatic and influential love stories of all time. The play, written by William Shakespeare in the late sixteenth century tells the anguishing tale of 'star-crossed lovers' taking their lives to be together in death. This essay will discuss three points that I believe to be partly a cause of their deaths. Was it the prolonged feud that caused them to die? Was Friar Lawrence at fault, or could it have been merely fate? I will discuss these topics in detail and evaluate what I think was to blame for their tragic deaths.
In this essay I have mentioned three points which I consider to have played a part in the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Many people have thought of different reasons for their deaths, but I conclude that it was the family feuding to blame.
Although many presume it was fate, I do not believe that your future is already chosen for you. As for Friar Lawrence, although he ensured nobody discovered anything about his actions, he didn't cause any distress or grief.
Nevertheless, if there had been no feuding, would Romeo and Juliet have ever met?
