Is There A Reason For Everything? Many people just read novels for the excitement, but many fail to see the true meaning of the novel. In the tragedy Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, William Shakespeare helps to answer the question, “does everything happen for a reason?” in the events of Romeo and Juliet’s separation of families, and their deaths.

Juliet and Romeo tragically die at the end of the novel for their love. Romeo dies from poison after seeing Juliet’s faux dead body, and Juliet dies from Romeo’s knife after she sees Romeo lying dead. Before Romeo died he killed yet another man. Outside of the Capulet tomb, Romeo and the County Paris got into a sword fight and Romeo killed the man that was supposed to be married to Juliet. Paris’s last wish was that Romeo would lay his body in the
