Romeo and Juliet

After the death of Mercutio, Romeo retaliated by killing Tybalt. The audience and Romeo after the incident took place knew that he was not in control of his faith anymore. Romeo quoted “O, I am fortune’s fool!” (3.1.136). One thing led to another and everything started tumbling down for them due to numerous quick and irrational decisions and eventually in the end contributed to their untimely death.

When the Prince found out that it was Romeo who killed Tybalt, who was also Romeo’s brother-in-law, the Prince banished him from Verona as a punishment for murdering Tybalt. The Prince also declared that Romeo will be slaughtered if he is ever found in the streets of Verona. Juliet on the other hand was being forced to marry Count Paris with a dire consequence of being kicked out in the streets if she refuses.   She knew she had to marry Count Paris until a miracle happens! Juliet went to Friar Lawrence to seek guidance and to figure out a way to get out the marriage. She and Friar Lawrence worked out a brilliant but a very risky plan. Friar Lawrence would give her a portion to drink which will momentarily make everyone to believe that she was dead and later when she comes out the trance and her false death, she and Romeo would run away together.   She was willing to do anything to get out of the marriage and to be with her love. However fate had a very different plan for them.

Juliet takes the portion after the nurse and lady Capulet leaves and she said to herself --"Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again" (4.3.14). She was really scared and was in a dilemma, what if the portion doesn’t work and she’ll end up marrying Paris in the morning? What if the portion really puts her to sleep and then she’ll never see Romeo’s face again. Knowing all these possibilities and consequences she decides to take the portion hoping and yarning
