William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet portrays two tragic heroes who possess similar tragic flaws. Both Romeo and Juliet are emotional, impulsive youths whose passion for each other facilitates their eventual demise. While both youths are flawed, Romeo’s flaws are more prominent as he has had more experience in love. Furthermore, he is far more impulsive than Juliet and cannot control his emotional rage.

State the thesis.

  • While fate plays a role in the outcome of a tragedy, the central characters’ tragic flaws equally contribute to the disastrous consequences of the story. William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet portrays two tragic heroes who possess similar tragic flaws. Both Romeo and Juliet are emotional, impulsive youths whose passion for each other facilitates their eventual demise. While both youths are flawed, Romeo’s flaws are more prominent as he has had more experience in love. Furthermore, he is far more impulsive than Juliet and cannot control his emotional rage. Because his flaws are greater in number and more pronounced, Romeo is ultimately more responsible than Juliet for the two lovers’ fatal demise.
