By the end of act 3 scene 1 two main characters are dead and another banished exempting them from most of the remaining part of the play Act 3 scene 1 is a pivotal point in the play where the plot takes a turn for disaster and tragedy In itself this scene is bound to be dramatically effective because of the impact it has on the storyline of the play and it does not happen straightaway anger and revenge play a large part of Tybalts desire for a fight but how is the effect of the fight that eventually does happen strengthened even further onstage Act 3 scene 1 is for the most part a fighting scene On its own fighting is a dramatic device but Shakespeare put other effects into place as well when he was writing this scene but the fighting is my first point Why Fighting is actually a dramatic effect this is because when there is a fight the audience do not know the outcome creating an ore of tension to them its a Waz Goanna Happen scenario Another dramatically effective part of this scene is when Romeo originally refuses Tybalts challenge but after Mercutios death he is eager for the fight Either thou or I or both must go with him I think that this is also important because the audience feel that Mercutios sense of honour has now affected Romeo as well Does he want revenge or does he just feel that Mercutio would have Almost as if he has been spurred into action by his friends death and not by the whole idea of family honour that is centre point in the play although maybe its a combination I think that it is worth saying that there was for want of a better word a prologue to the fight of Act 3 Scene 1 in that Tybalt is mad that the Montagues would dare gatecrash the party
