Theme

We have the theme development choice of Fate. We agree with the theme of Romeo and Juliet is fate. Throughout the entire play many events happen leading us to believe that Shakespeare's lesson or theme is fate. Some of those events include...

  1. Act 1, Prologue, Line 4; "Where civil bloods makes civil hands unclean." This line foreshadows and tells us that the hatred between the families will make other things happen.
  2. 1.1.3; Romeo says "Out of her favor where I am in love" It is fate that they can't be together, but it is also fate that they will be together.
  3. 1.2.12; "Younger than she are happy mothers made." Paris and Juliet were suppose to be together, but Romeo and Juliet were meant to be together *fate*.
  4. 3.1.93; Romeo says "The hurt can not be much." The hurt is a lot, because the were meant to be together, so he must be hurt if that was meant to be.
  5. 5.1.18; "Her body sleeps in Capel's monument." Tis is Balthasar who told Romeo that Juliet was dead *false*. Then Romeo took action, this was all fate.


To conclude we believe it is fate that the Montages and Capulets hate each other, that Romeo and Juliet meet each other at the ball, that Tybalt dies and that Romeo and Juliet die. It is all fate.
