Relationship is described as an emotional or other connection between people. The book Of Mice and Men and “Romeo and Juliet” both have similar relationships. These relationships are built around different circumstances and situations. George and Lennie only have each other which creates a better relationship. Romeo and Juliet had large families to support and love them. They grew up surrounded by strong families. When they met violence between the families forced them to choose family or each other. How does one have a strong enough bond after two days to turn away from a family whose has been supporting them throughout their lives? A solid relationship is not created in two days, but built through good and bad life experiences. Even though Romeo and Juliet have a relationship of love and forgiveness, George and Lennie still have the stronger
First, Romeo’s kind and calm personalities act as an advantage for many of the possible problems he could have had, such as Capulet hatred towards him and his increase in violence. After Romeo was depressed because he liked Rosaline and she didn’t like him back, his cousin Benvolio helped Romeo sneak into a Capulet party so he could get over Rosaline and pick another woman that he might want. As Romeo was describing how Juliet looked to his cousin, Tybalt, Capulet’s nephew, figured out that Romeo was at the party by his voice. He then confronted Capulet and asked him if he could kill him, but surprisingly Capulet lets him stay at the party and calls Romeo a gentleman and a good man (Shakespeare Act 1 Scene 1 Line 64). Capulet could have captured him or even killed him, but he did not. Capulet stated that Romeo is a well-governed youth and that Romeo is a good man, which shows that Romeo isn’t a person who would cause a commotion and that he causes no threat to the Capulet family. Later on, as Mercutio, the prince's kinsman, is arguing and fighting with Tybalt about him being one of his villain Romeo’s friends, Romeo comes in and says, “Tybalt, the reason I have to love thee doth much excuse the appertaining rage to such greeting. Villain am I none.Therefore farewell. I see thou knowest me not” (Shakespeare Act 3 Scene 1 Line 58). As Tybalt wants to fight Romeo and bring in violence,
1. In this Scene, the nurse is shown to have a really close bond with Juliet. She seems to have a better relation than her mother. The nurse lost her daughter “Susan”(1.3 Line 20) as she was the same “age”(1.1 Line 21) as Juliet, which makes the nurse closer to Juliet and treats her as a daughter.
Of all the things that occur in Romeo and Juliet, the death of Tybalt is one of the most climatic parts of the story. Yet, this all started from another killing of a different person, Mercutio. Mercutio, a relative of the Prince and friend of Romeo, and Tybalt, nephew to Lady Capulet and Mercutio’s arch enemy, were in a heated conversion when Romeo walked in after getting married to Juliet and saw what was going on. Tybalt and Mercutio began to fight and Romeo tried to come in between them to stop the whole thing. Unfortunately, as Tybalt was under Romeo’s arms, he stabbed Mercutio and he died soon after. In all the rage, Romeo was furious that his friend was dead and starts to fight with Tybalt.
In the play, Romeo states, “Romeo. This gentleman, the Prince’s near ally, My very friend, hath got this mortal hurt / In my behalf-my reputation stained / With Tybalt’s slander-Tybalt, that an hour Hath been my kinsman, O sweet Juliet, Thy beauty hath made me effeminate / And in my temper softened valor’s steel! ” (Shakespeare, 231). Romeo knows the consequence of slaughter in a street fight, but since Mercutio had just been murdered by the hands of Tybalt, all the anger and hatred built up inside of Romeo causes him to lose self control and go after Tybalt for revenge. Romeo also states, “Romeo. This day’s black fate on mo days dory depend; This but begins the woe others must end. ” (Shakespeare, 231), to show that after Mercutio’s death, Romeo’s hatred for Tybalt causes him to disrupt and he prepares himself to battle against Tybalt. Because Romeo killed Tybalt, his punishment is to be banned from Verona, to never be seen again in the paradise that Juliet lives in. If Romeo had just stopped himself from hating Tybalt, Juliet and Romeo could still be alive, and Juliet would not have to find a way to be with Romeo
Tybalt wants to fight Romeo because he crashed the party where he met Juliet. Because Tybalt is known for his skilled sword fighting, Mercurio doesn’t believe Romeo will will in this fight so he fights for him. In the beginning is was just a little silly fight but when Romeo enters the scene things get interesting. Romeo decides to try and stop this fight because he thinks he can resolve it; with romeo getting in the middle of the fight with swords in the air, Tybalt’s sword happened to stab Mercutio. This resulted in Mercutio's death, and tempered romeo quite quickly. Romeo chases after Tybalt and fights him. With Romeo’s rage, the fight ends up with Tybalt dead. After the two deaths were revealed, Romeo was to blame for the killings and was banned from his home (Verona). Romeo was able to marry Juliet but would be separated from her forever. Before he must leave Juliet sneaks him into her room so they could sleep together to complete their marriage. After the night, romeo leaves at dawn. A professor named Friar Lawrence was the man who secretly married them, and was soon asked by Juliet to make a potion to make her fall asleep for a period of time so she appears dead.
