Fate is one of the main messages in Shakespeare’s play “Romeo and Juliet”. This message is revealed all throughout the play by conflict, both internal and external. The Capulet and Montague families are in an ancient feud which is fated to end by the death of the two children. This is one of the external sides of the conflict. An internal side of this conflict is the way Romeo and Juliet feel for each other when Juliet is a Capulet and Romeo a Montague.
