Romeo and Juliet Act 3 Scene 1 Review

Romeo and Juliet In Act 3 Scene 1, the violence results in the banishment of Romeo. The purpose of this coursework is to check out how Shakespeare makes Act 3 Scene 1 amazing for the audience.

Act 3 Scene 1 is the main juncture of the play where it ends up being a disaster, the scene begins with Mercutio humouring everybody and then gets in the gladly wed and love-struck Romeo declines to combat Tybalt now that he has actually wed Juliet, Tybalt believes that Romeo is mocking him but still declines so Mercutio chooses to combat for Romeo because he has actually dishonoured himself, Romeo attempts to stop them combating but ends up getting Mercutio eliminated, filled by his rage he eliminates Tybalt, both families rush to where Tybalt and Mercutio lay dead the scene ends with the Prince declaring the banishment of Romeo.

Tybalt’s character does not change at any point prior to or throughout Act 3 Scene 1, since he is an intense person. Romeo’s character is kind, mild, caring person before Act 3 Scene 1 however during the scene he is mild and caring just for half the scene up until the death of his friend Mercutio when he avenges him.

Mercutio’s character is humourous, joking and sarcastic before Act 3 Scene 1 and is humourous, joking and ironical during the scene too up until his death which was because of Romeo when he suddenly switches on Romeo Benvolio’s character is a hot headed, concerned, a good and faithful friend and a peace loving individual which does not alter before or during Act 3 Scene 1.

Tybalt calls Romeo a bad guy “Romeo, the hate I bear thee can pay for No better term than this, Thou art a bad guy” Tybalt calls Romeo a villain to coax him into duelling him but likewise due to the fact that he will have no remorses in slaying him, becomes angry at Romeo “this shall not excuse the injuries that thou hast done me, therefore turn and draw” Tybalt says this due to the fact that he believes Romeo is mocking him and wishes to battle him right away Romeo tries to be nice to Tybalt “I do object I never injured thee, However love thee better than thou canst devise., Romeo states this since he does not wish to hurt a cousin he just gained through marriage to Juliet, Romeo is trying to stop Mercutio from duelling Tybalt “Gentle Mercutio, put thy rapier up.” Romeo is so blinded by his love for Juliet that he does not want anyone to get harmed for something he does not want to do Mercutio calls Romeo a coward “O calm, dishonourable repellent submission:” Mercutio says this due to the fact that Romeo chose to stand down like the common coward, he also attempts to coax Tybalt into duelling him “(he draws) Tybalt, you rat catcher, will you walk? he wishes to battle Tybalt for Romeo rather, Benvolio attempts to persuade Mercutio into going home “I hope thee, excellent Mercutio, let’s retire: The day is hot, the Capulets abroad, And, if we satisfy, we shall not scape a brawl” Benvolio being a peace keeper did not wish to stand by and watch Mercutio duel among the Capulets of which there were lots of that hot afternoon and on a hot day you feel hot and upset since of the heat, attempts to get the battle between Tybalt and Mercutio off the streets “We talk here in the general public haunt of guys: Either withdraw unto some private place, And reason coldly of your grievances, Or else depart; here all eyes gaze on us.” Benvolio tries to move the combat of the streets of Verona so that they can not be enjoyed by the public.

Shakespeare builds the tension in this scene by showing us aggressive sides to each of the characters for instance Shakespeare makes Romeo attempt and befriend his opponent which infuriates Tybalt who then fights Mercutio in location of Romeo and gets killed, Romeo is then enraged because of the death of his buddy and responds to this by killing Tybalt. The audience having already seen this know that it can only end in tears for everybody. In my opinion I believe that Act 3 Scene 1 is without a doubt the very best scene in Romeo and Juliet due to the fact that it reveals numerous sides of the characters like Mercutio who is most of the time making a fool of someone he combated against Tybalt for Romeo, Romeo shows a caring nature towards Tybalt since he has simply wed Juliet, Tybalt’s cousin and does not want to begin a fight between them and Tybalt not understanding this starts to believe that Romeo is mocking him it is likewise the primary pivotal moment of the play since it ends with the banishment of Romeo from Verona by the Prince
