  2. 2. Mercutio Vs THE PRINCE ESCALUS Romeo and Juliet is a classic literature which written by William Shakespare in the Renaissance period. The story was about the love argument of a couple because of their family feud. In the story we see two character which came from the royal family and have high rank in the city like The Prince and Mercutio. Even thought, they were the kin men but Mercutio and The Prince are completely different of their appearance or attitude, character trait as well as their action in the story. In the plot of the story, we can see that Mercutio was a young boy who is temperamental and brave. He sometimes funny and like to play a lot with his friends like Romeo. Mercutio also a helpful man who can assist as advise and never betrayed his friends. In contrast, The Prince Escalus was a mature old man who represent of the law in the story. Not like Mercutio The Prince can control his anger and can solve the problem peacefully. His work in the story was very rigorous and justice. Mercutio also brave enough to fight with someone and temperamental that’s why he dead under the sword of Tybalt who was his enemy. He was very friendly with his friends and family. Mercutio also witty and all his friends like him so much. By the way, Prince Escalus is the absolute ruler of an independent Italian city-state. He was a type rather than a personality. He stood as a supreme power over the welfare of the city. His character trait seems to be very mature and conscientious man. The prince was an knowledgeable man who did not like to making fun with other. He was a long term thinking person and never have any argument with others. Back to their action in the story Mercutio appeared to be Romeo’s best friend. As friends they gathered, at the beginning of the story Mercutio advise Romeo do not fall in love. When he found out that Romeo is in love with a Capulet, his reaction is to make fun of his best friend. Mercutio dead seem to be one of the climax of the plot. Mercutio got a fight with Tybalt until Tybalt kill him and Romeo killed Tybalt who was his love, Juliet’s sibling as revenge of his best friend. On the other hand, The Prince Escalus was a symbol of the law, the court and the powerful person in the story. His presence in the story to show that the country has the law and nobody can do whatever they want. However, He could not solve the family feud between Montague and Capulet because it was the private issue between two family. All in all, Mercutio and The Prince Escalus both of them were the significant characters in the story. Without them the story might not be continued until Romeo and Juliet dead. In my own opinion, If Mercutio attitude and character trait was the same as The Prince so he may not die and could solve the problem between with Friar Lawrence for Romeo and Juliet’s love. In contrast, if the prince Escalus’ attitude and character trait as Mercutio, the story might be worth then that because Mercutio was a temperamental man.
