Prologue sets the story out even before it begins – like fate
the prologue is a way for the audience to know a brief outline of the story. The prologue is almost like fate because you know what happens before it happens. the prologue can be another form of fate but it’s not a stronger person like a God. “a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life.”
Metaphor “Written in the Stars” – a reference to fate
“written in the stars” means heaven or god controlling what happens to you in your life. in the story Romeo said some consequence yet hanging in the stars shall bitterly begin his fearful date. Written in the stars means that you know what god is telling you what to do which is another form of fate. “I fear too early for my mind missives”.

the paradox is a stronger force than you intends two people to kill themselves. a paradox is a form of fate in the way that God is controlling what they do. in the play, Romeo and Juliet God or a stronger force intends that Romeo and Juliet kill themselves by creating these scenarios which lead Romeo and Juliet to kill themselves.
“a dateless bargain to engrossing death”
