Sympathy in Romeo and Juliet

Sympathy in Romeo and Juliet By: Emerson Gabber, Liam Nicoll, and Matt Wiebe Intro/Thesis Hook: Romeo and Juliet endure many tragic events before their inevitable deaths.

when Romeo kills Tybalt after Tybalt kills Mercutio, and Romeo is banished for avenging his dead friend. Point 1: Romeo kindly refuses to fight Tybalt. I do protest I never injured thee, / But love thee better than thou canst devise, / Till thou shalt know the reason of my love; / And so, good Capulet, which name I tender / as dearly as mine own, be satisfied

(3.1.65-69). - Romeo is respectful and kind - Not looking for a fight - Does not gain respect in return Point 2: Tybalt kills Romeos friend Mercutio, and Romeo goes and confronts Tybalt to kill him. Again, in triumph, and Mercutio slain? / Away to heaven, respective

lenity, / And fire-eyd fury be my conduct now! / Now, Tybalt, take the villain back again / That late lou gavest me, for Mercutios soul (3.1.118-122).
