This days black fate on moes day doth depend - Romeo and Juliet

Extracts from this document...


"This days black fate on moes day doth depend" At the beginning of "Romeo and Juliet" there is a fierce fight between the Montagues and the Capulets .The intensity of the fight persuades lord Capulet to throw a Masquerade party. Romeo takes advantage of this occasion and decides to gate crash the party with his friends (Mercutio and Benvolio). Romeo goes to catch a glimse of Rosaline but instead he catchers a glimse of Juliet and both of them fall in love. As Romeo enters the party he is quickly recognised by Tybalt who takes matters into his own hand and is willing to fight Romeo. Lord Capulet sees them quarrelling and tells Tybalt not to ruin his party or the prince will execute him. As a result Tybalt does fight at the party. During Act3 Scene1 Mercutio is getting angry. Benvolio warns him, "the day is hot, the capels are abroad, and if we meet, we shall not 'scape a brawl." Mercutio is bitterly disgusted by Benvolio and wants him to stay. He teases Benvolio. Mercutio claims that Benvolio is a makes trouble so why does he want peace? ...read more.


Mercutio has no fear as he approaches Tybalt he expressers, "by my heel I care not". Tybalt is a character who is totally addicted to fighting we know this because Romeo says, "doth must excuse the appertaining rage" and Tybalt replies, "turn and draw" .We also know he likes to fight because of him being involved in every single fight in "Romeo and Juliet". Tybalt is mentioned as a cat though out the scene here are two examples, "Tybalt you rat-catcher" and "good king of cats". Tybalt is known as "rat-catcher" because that was the name given to the cat in the book called Reynard the Fox or the modern one called Tibby. Romeo is a character who is perfect but has to suffer many downfalls because of Juliet. I would like to emphasise that Juliet is the character who changes Romeos fate. After Romeo falls in love with her he losers a friend, kills Tybalt and dies at the end. However he had to fall in love with her and die at the end due to it being written in his destiny as this sentence of the sonnet indicates, "a pair of star cross'd lovers take their life's". ...read more.


The director may involve a police commissioner instead of the prince because the police make the peace today like the kinsman's did in Shakespeare's time. He may decide to set the scene in a modern well-known city. He also like to use modern clothes as this will be good to use in a modern city. The language in this scene is extremely good put in an example would be when Tybalt say, "No better term than this-thou art a villain" and Romeo replies, "Tybalt the reason I have to love thee". Here Romeo reflects Tybalt's words to keep peace. Romeo users "love" when Tybalt users "villain". Another example would be when Tybalt says, "this shall not excuse thy injuries" and Romeo replies, " I do protest I never injured thee". Here Romeo users "injured" when Tybalt users "injuries" . Lady Capulets speech emphasises on the importance of family she says, "O cousin, O my Brothers child!, O prince, O husband!" .The "O" in her speech show real emotional feelings and reactions. In my opinion I think that this scene is when fate, revenge and tragedy come into play. However this is the main scene, which involves revenge from Mercutio because of his death and revenge from Romeo because of Tybalt murdering Mercutio. By Fiaz Mohammed. ...read more.
