Romeo and Juliet

Romeo And Juliet.
Violence and Conflict.

In this essay I am going to talk about the Violence and Conflict of the two feuding families in Verona. The Montague and The Capulets. There is a mixture of violence and conflict in the play Romeo and Juliet that affects a whole range of characters.

The play Romeo and Juliet was written in the year 1585 by the famous author William Shakespeare.
The play opens with the servants of the Montague and Capulet families quarrelling and fighting in the streets of Verona, Italy. The two families have been enemies for as long as anyone can remember.
In Act 1 Scene, 1 Sampson and Gregory, servants of the house of Capulet, go out looking for trouble.  Sampson and Gregory almost pick a fight with Balthasar, servants of the house of Montague.  Seeing a Capulet kinsman, Sampson and Gregory start to fight with Balthasar. Benvolio tries to stop the fight, but Tybalt enters and attacks Benvolio. The citizens of Verona attack both the Capulets and Montagues. Capulet and Montague try to join the fight, but are restrained by their wives. The Prince stops the riot, threatens everyone with death, and takes Capulet with him, leaving Benvolio alone with Montague and Lady Montague. Lady Montague asks where Romeo is, and Benvolio answers that he was up before dawn, wandering in the woods.
In Act 3 Scene 1, on the streets of Verona, Benvolio tries to persuade Mercutio that it's best to stay out of the way of the Capulets and a quarrel, but Mercutio humours claims that Benvolio is as much of a quarreler as anyone. Mercutio challenged Tybalt, to a fight, but then Romeo appears. Tybalt challenges Romeo to fight. Romeo refuses, but Mercutio steps forward and fights Tybalt. As Romeo is trying to stop the fight, Tybalt gives Mercutio a wound, then runs away. Mercutio dies. Romeo is ashamed of himself for letting Mercutio do the fighting, and when Tybalt returns, Romeo kills Tybalt.

Just before dawn, Romeo is preparing to leave, but Juliet...
