It will also show the dramatic signifi-cance of the scene.Benvolio is known as a peace-loving and reliable young man. In Act 3 Scene 1 Benvoliois very anxious because he didn’t want a fight to occur. Benvolio tells Mercutio that theyshould leave before the Capulet’s arrive. Benovlio says “The day is hot, he capels areaboard and, if we meet, we shall notʼscape a brawl”. He says this right at the start of thescene. Bevolio then becomes more tense because the brawl between Tybalt and Mer-cutio is just within striking distance till Romeo enters. Both Benvolio tries to convinceMercutio to fight somewhere at least because everyone was gazing on them. Benvoliosays “We talk here in the public haunt of men: Either withdraw unto some private place,Or reason coldly of your grievances, Or else depart. Here all eyes gaze on us”. Benvo-lio’s says this before Romeo enters the scene. After Tybalt has been killed Benvoliourges Romeo to flee. Benvolio says “Romeo, away, be gone!, The citizens are up, andTybalt slain. Stand not amazed: the prince will doom thee death, If thou art taken:hence, be gone, away!”. When all citizens, Montagues and Capulets gather around thescene Benvolio tells the Prince what happen. Benvolio says “O noble prince, I can dis-cover all, The unlucky manage of this fatal brawl: There lies the man, slain by youngRomeo, That slew thy kinsman, brave Mercutio”. Benvolio is a person who likes peace,in this Act 3 scene 1 Benvolio is looking for peace between Mercutio and Tybalt. Benvo-lio also does the same thing in the beginning of the play. In Act 1 Scene 1 during thebrawl Benvolio explains that he is merely trying to keep peace but Tybalt says that he
  • replies by saying “Consort? What, dost thou make us minstrels? An thou make minstrelsof us, look to hear nothing but discords. Hereʼs my fiddlestick. Hereʼs that shall makeyou dance. Zounds, “consort”. Both Mercutio start sparring with words till Romeo entersthe scene. When Romeo enters the scene Tybalt is distracted from Mercutio. Romeohas a talk with Tybalt on why he should love him. Romeo dishonors himself so Mercutiosteps in. Before he steps he says to himself “O calm, dishonourable, vile submission!Alla stoccata carries it away”. Then the brawl between Mercutio and Tybalt begins Ro-meo tries to stop the fight but Mercutio ends up being killed under Romeo’s arms. Be-fore Mercutio dies he says “A plague o both your houses”. He says that because hewas calling a plague down on both the Montagues and the Capulets because their feudhas led to his death. Mercutio’s character has stayed the same throughout the wholeplay until Act 3 scene 1. Throughout the play Mercutio has been acting cocky andbawdy esspecially when the capulets are around. The moment Romeo dishonors him-self Mercutio becomes furious and more serious than usual.Tybalt is known as a Adventurous, Arrogant and independent. In act 3 scene 1 Tybalt isvery blood-thirsty. When he first enters the scene he is in search for Romeo. He triedasking Mercutio but he’d just start joking around. Tybalt asks him whether he has beenwith Romeo. Tybalt says “Mercutio, thou consortʼst with Romeo”. The sparring betweenwords started, Romeo then enters the scene so Tybalt is distracted from Mercutio. Ty-balt forces Romeo to fight by calling him a villain but Romeo refuses since they are notrelates. Tybalt says to Romeo “Romeo, the love I bear thee can afford, No better termthan this: thou art a villain”. Tybalt tells Romeo that he will not forgive him for the harmhe’s done. Romeo then dishonors himself which made Mercutio realize that he neededto step-in and fight Tybalt. Tybalt ends up stabbing Mercutio and dies. Romeo thenseeks for revenge so he kills Tybalt. Tybalts last few words before his death was “Thou,wretched boy, that didst consort him here, Shalt with him hence”. Tybalt also tried toget into a fight with Romeo in Act 1 Scene 5. In that scene Tybalt overhears Romeo andrecognizes his voice. Tybalt then calls his rapiers to kill Romeo but inquires as to thecause of his excitement. Tybalt says to Romeo that he is here to insult him.Romeo is known as a Mature, loving and compassionate person. In act 3 scene 1 whenRomeo enters the scene Tybalt is distracted from Mercutio. Tybalt attempts to provokeRomeo into a fight, but Romeo refuses because, unknown to others they are relativesafter Romeo getting married to Juliet. Romeo tries to respect Tybalt but he doesn’t un-derstand. Romeo says to tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love thee, Doth much
  • cannot be much”. Romeo was seeking for revenge for what Tybalt did to his friend. Ro-meo says to Tybalt “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him”. When Romeo kills Ty-balt Benvolio tells him to flee. Romeo then says “Oh, I am fortuneʼs fool!”. Romeo saysthat because he is upset he killed Tybalt, thus destroying his future with his beloved Ju-liet. He realizes he had no control over it what so ever.

  • Both Romeo and Juliet found themselves in terrible situations. Like when Romeo re-fuses to fight Tybalt because they were related since Romeo married Juliet. Romeoends up getting Mercutio killed under his arms. Another terrible situation Romeo foundhimself in was when we was banished from Verona for killing Tybalt. He was very upsethe killed Tybalt, thus destroying his future with his beloved Juliet. He realizes he had nocontrol over it what so ever. Juliet nevertheless also found herself in situations shecouldnt come out of. Juliet was once forced to marry Paris earlier then when the wed-ding is suppose to be but she but she wanted to delay the marriage but nothing couldbe done about it. She then gets help from me, I decided to give her a sleeping lotionthat had her sleeping for quite a while but thats what led to both their deaths.I wrote a letter to Romeo saying that Juliet is fine and that I gave her sleeping lotion sppeople would think shes dead enable for him to see his beloved Juliet. However Romeodidnt receive that letter so everything turned from good to worst. One of Romeos fellowfriend who happened to pass by the church where to funeral was told Romeo that Julietwas dead. Romeo rushes to Verona to see Juliet and he arrives there he is hear bro-ken. He decides to drink the poison given to him by The apothecary. He drinks the poi-son, then all of a sudden Juliet wakes up and Romeo was very surprised but it was toolate, Romeo has already drank the poison and the he dies and Juliet decides to go withhim and she commits suicide.I believe that it is fate the caused Romeo and Juliets death. It is fate when the letter Iwrote was not received by Romeo unforeseen circumstances and it is fate when Romeodecided to kill himself.
