  • The danger of hatred and revenge in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
  • Description of the Theme
  • In the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, a feud between the Montagues and Capulets brought out the worst in the city of Verona. The death of a friend caused by pity and hate from another reflected off of everyone. The Prince declared a law that if a quarrel caused disruption or death, then the death penalty would be put to use on that person. Revenge to gain justice and honor the family name brought out death in characters. In the end, the influence of hate and revenge was emphasized on to show that every aspect of love comes with upsets. Shakespeare did not focus on the perfect relationship, yet threw in twists to the story so that the audience feels the battle of love versus hate.
  • Act 3, Scene 1
  • I am hurt
  • What, art thou hurt?
  • This but begins the woe others must end.
  • Revenge is the action of inflicting harm on someone because that person made another suffer
  • Act 3, Scene 1
  • Either thou or I, or both, must go with him
  • What is Shakespeare trying to tell us?
  • Act 3, Scene 5
  • That he shall soon keep Tybalt company; and then I hope thou wilt be satisfied.
  • Tybalt is ruthless trying to pick a fight with Romeo, whom is responding with peace because of his love for Juliet. Mercutio reacts differently and fights Tybalt himself. Mercutio was stabbed and eventually died. The danger of this hatred caused Romeo to lose one of his best friends and wanting revenge on Tybalt.
  • Act 1, Scene 1
  • No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir; but I bite my thumb, sir.
  • Do you Quarrel, sir?
  • After bearing the news that Mercutio has died, Romeo fights Tybalt. Romeo achieves victory in his revenge and kills Tybalt. Revenge made Romeo kill a human in which would cause his exile.
  • Lady Capulet demands revenge on Romeo for killing Tybalt. She persisted that Romeo be dead and made sure he was at least exiled. Then, she spilled her plan of poisoning Romeo. After each death, a character desired revenge that would harm others.
  • Madam, if you could find out but a man to bear a poison, I would temper it.
  • The play starts off with an exchange of insults between servants. When Tybalt and Benvolio fight they start chaos on the street. The fight is committed out of hate and pushes the Prince to create his law. The law caused danger as it soon made Romeo leave Verona and caused him to not get the message about Juliet's fake death that appears later in the play.
  • If you ever disturb our streets again, Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.
  • Quarrel, sir? No, sir.
