Romeo and Juliet

Analysis of Act Five

Upon hearing of her "death", Romeo goes to Juliet's tomb where he drinks poison and dies. When Juliet's potion wears off, she awakens to find her lover's corpse. She then proceeds to stab herself with Romeo's dagger.

The two families find the bodies and in their shared sorrow, finally make peace with each other.

The climax is the enacting of the father’s plan. Juliet pretends to be dead, and Romeo does not know it and commits suicide.

The action begins to fall after Juliet commits suicide after finding Romeo dead. It continues as both families find their children dead.

Escalus tells everyone that the deaths are the result of their feuds and everyone feels guilty.

The greatest theme in this play is that of love. This play is known for love as many phrases from this play have become famous for the expressions of love. For example, The term ‘Romeo’ has become universal for a lady’s man. The balcony scene is known as the place where they two lovers professed their love for each other. This play shows two lovers doing everything they could to be together despite their feuding family, and also despite death.

This play also deals with the idea of fate like many of Shakespeare’s other plays. The fate caused by the circumstances of the feuding families predicted that these two would not be able to live together with the complete happiness of their families.

It seems that although they did so much to stay together, fate would not allow it.
