The characters described believed that the land would either work with them or against them and their optimism assured them that it was only a matter of time before it would turn in their favor.

    Shakespeare writes his work with true complexity. The story of Romeo & Juliet is filled with events that may be stamped or labelled as fate, or maybe just bad luck. Events of fate tend to link from one to the other; but not always do they happen in such a manner. Sometimes one bad choice, one solemn mistake by one party can trigger a whole series of events. A beautifully fateful meeting turns into a beautifully fateful death. Shakespeare may be trying to say two different things. Some events may have happened all on account of fate, or perhaps, maybe one bad mistake ended up triggering them.
