Brian Godish Period 4 Romeo and Juliet Essay 3/30/05 In this work of literature, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, a prominent theme is fate. Fate leads to the meeting and growing of the relationship, the banishment of Romeo, and the deaths of these two star-crossed lovers. If these two families were not sworn enemies, this tragedy would likely have been prevented. However, this was not the case and fate had to take its course. The meeting of Romeo and Juliet displayed fate when the servant ran into Romeo and asked him to read the guest list for the Capulet party. He said, “God gi’ good e’en. I pray, sir, can you read anything you see?” (I, ii, 61-62) This admission exposes the list to Romeo bearing Rosaline’s name upon it. Romeo’s intention when he was going to the party was originally to try and win back Rosaline, but instead he fell in love with Juliet. All because of fate, Romeo’s friendship with Juliet began at this party.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
