Tun´┐Ż Yagci Romeo and Juliet Coursework What part does bad fortune and fate play in the tragedy of Romeo & Juliet? In this story of William Shakespeare ' Romeo & Juliet ' I think that the death of Romeo and Juliet is a bad luck. I got to this conclusion because Romeo and Juliet are from the different families that really hate each other, the Montague family which Romeo is from and the Capulet family which Juliet is from. Also Juliet was going to marry Paris although she did not want to. This is what I would call a very bad luck of these two lovers. Firstly, the Capulets and the Montagues are the two richest families of Verona, but they are like enemies each other. When any of the members of these two families see each other they start a fight, not even a fight by jus shouting each other but a sword fight. ...read more.

Juliet does not want to marry Paris although the marriage is arranged by her father and Paris. It is not that she does not want Paris but she does not want to marry yet, even if she does get married at that age she wants Romeo to be her husband " I will not marry yet; and, when I do I swear, It shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris. ...read more.


The message must reach to Romeo so that he would know that this death of Juliet is a plan of Juliet and Friar Lawrence. However Romeo does not get the message of this plan, but he hears that Juliet died from Balthasar, so he just gets on his ride and goes to Capulets graveyard right away, when the message was on its way Romeo was going back to Verona to see Juliets dead body. When he gets to the Capulets graveyard he sees Juliet lying, he drinks a poison because he could not live without his only love Juliet and dies. After that Juliet wakes up and sees Romeo lying on the ground dead so she gets Romeo's dagger and stabs herself and dies. This is a bad luck that Juliet woke up right after Romeo killed himself. By these reason I got to this conclusion that the bad luck was the tragic end of Romeo & Juliet. ...read more.
