The Tragedy Of Romeo And Juliet Romeo and Juliet; their names are recognized around the world for their true love and untimely death. What was the true reason for their early demise? In the story of the two star -crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, the doomed couple fist meet at a party before being informed that they belong to families that despise each other. They decide not to let their families’ longstanding feud get in the way of their love. Romeo and Juliet are wed, and soon after Romeo is banished for the murder of Juliet’s cousin. In order to avoid being wed to another man, Juliet feigns death with the hope that Romeo will arrive and carry her away to live with him for the rest of their lives. Romeo, believing that his true love is dead kills himself in Juliet’s tomb. Juliet wakes, sees her fallen lover, and impales herself with a dagger. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers death was ultimately caused by the feud between their parents, and the haste by which the two lovers went about their relationship. The ancient argument between the Montagues and the Capulets caused the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The prologue is shedding light on the situation of Romeo and poor Juliet, who came from enemy houses, and whose love was true. The prologue states, “The fearful passage of their death-marked love/ and the continuance of their parents’ rage, / Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove.” (Prologue, 9-11) The hostility that the two lovers’ parents felt toward each other, could not be ended or mended by any thing but their children’s deaths. The two families hated each other with such a passion that their children were forced to keep their love a secret. This secrecy was what caused Juliet to fake her death and in turn caused both her and Romeo’s unfortunate demise. The tragic death of Romeo and Juliet had many factors that contributed to it, one of those factors was the haste with which the amorous teens went about their love. Romeo was talking about his love for Juliet the day after they met. After being told by the Friar that he has forgotten Rosaline rather quickly Romeo states, “We met, we wooed, and made exchange of vow? I’ll tell thee as we pass, but this I pray, / That thou consent to marry us today.” (2.3, 66-68) Romeo and Juliet had only met a day before when they decided to get married. If Romeo and Juliet had stopped to ponder the consequences of the dangerous behaviors that they were engaging in, they could have avoided the horrible end that they met. The haste that was illustrated here was also portrayed when Romeo assumed that Juliet was dead, and only moments later committed suicide. Some say that Romeo and Juliet’s death was caused by the Nurse’s encouragement of the relationship between the two youthful lovers, but truly the failure of the delivery of the message that would have informed him of Juliet’s fake death was what caused Romeo and Juliet’s death. Romeo is in Juliet’s tomb and he believes her to be dead. He is so wracked with guilt and sadness that he has decided to end his life. Romeo uttered his last words when he whispered, “Here’s to my love. O true
