devastated families console their bond over their dead children.CommentaryIn the beginning of Romeo and Juliet, it’s easy to say that free will was clearly the ruler between the two. Romeo and Juliet were using their free will to choose their own path and their own love. They wouldn’t let their families’ hate separate them. However, now we notice that fate has been behind it all afterall. The personification of heaven intensifies that fate is truly in charge, and that these deaths were necessary to accomplish a greater goal. In the battle of fate vs free will we can even argue that no matter what you choose to do, fate will bring you to an ultimatesolution. In conclusion, Romeo and Juliet emphasizes the connection between choice
and destiny, while also maintaining their differences. Character AnalysisTextual Reference“ROMEOFor fear of that, I still will stay with thee;And never from this palace of dim nightDepart again: here, here will I remainWith worms that are thy chamber-maids; O, hereWill I set up my everlasting rest,And shake the yoke of inauspicious starsFrom this world-wearied flesh. Eyes, look your last!Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O youThe doors of breath, seal with a righteous kissA dateless bargain to engrossing death!
