  • While reading Act 5 of the story Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare I was very surprised about the events that took place in this act. First of all, I think this act was very different from the last act in terms of the main idea. I think that the main idea for this act is that certain actions will lead to bad consequences. I think that this is the main idea because Juliet faked her death in order to get out of the marriage with Paris but in the end Romeo fights Paris and he dies. The actions that Juliet took resulted in Romeo going somewhat crazy and Paris dying in the act to help her family. Second, I think that the theme of act 5 is ironic. I think the theme of Act 5 is ironic because Juliet took this magic potion to get with Romeo but instead it lead to her tomb being the battleground between Paris and Romeo. When the messenger tells Juliet where her husbands are it is also ironic because he tells her that they are both dead and how she should move on. That is why I believe Act 5 was very surprising.
