For example, he is responsible for the death of Mercutio, which causes a vengeful spark to rise in Romeo. After Tybalt stabs Mercutio he turns to Romeo and says, “I am hurt. A plague on both your houses” (121). Tybalt killing Mercutio is one of the actions that lead up to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Tybalt had no reason for fighting with him.
After Macbeth finally gives into the pressure and commits the murder of Duncan, his hands are stained with blood, representing his tainted conscience. When Macbeth meets with his wife directly after the murder he panics when he questions “What hands are here!” (II.2.76). Macbeth’s guilt is so heavily weighing upon him that he undergoes an identity crisis, not recognizing these “hangman’s hands” (II.2.37). Macbeth has committed the unthinkable. With his very, own hands he murdered Duncan, an honorable king, which drastically changes his perspective on life.
Also, when the official who is telling the city of Thebes that Oedipus blinded himself he says, “He shouts for all the barriers to be unbarred and he displayed to all of Thebes, his father’s murderer, his mothers…no, a word too foul to say…”(71). Even though Oedipus didn’t know that Lauis was his father it was still his choice to kill him and marry Jocasta although it was his mother. In addition to Oedipus being responsible for his fate he is also endowed with a tragic flaw and is doomed to make a serious error in judgment. Oedipus is arrogant and stubborn and these flaws cause him to accuse people of things they didn’t do. For example, when Oedipus says to Tiresias,”Yes, you, you planned this thing, and I suspect you of the very murder even, all but the actual stroke” (20).He is accusing Tiresias of murdering Lauis when the actual murderer is Oedipus himself.
To begin with, the battle between the Montague’s and Capulet’s caused the death of Mercutio and Tybalt. To illustrate the point, Tybalt killed Mercutio because he was close to the Montagues, which he despised, and Mercutio had challenged him to a duel. Before Mercutio died in 3.1 he exclaimed, “A plague a both your houses!” meaning that the fight between the two families are like a plague where there’s no benefit (3.1. line 106). This implies that Mercutio felt that he was caught up between the everlasting feuds between the two families and he wanted no other innocent people to die from this conflict between the two families, therefore shouted out this fraise. In addition, in 3.1 Romeo murdered Tybalt to avenge the death of Mercutio by saying “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” (3.1. line 129).
After Mercutio’s death, Romeo lashes out, thus leading to another one of his impulsive acts, seeking revenge on Tybalt for killing his best friend. Just before running off to take vengeance on Tybalt, Romeo states, “This day's black fate on more days doth depend; this but begins the woe others must end” (3.1.120-121) Because Romeo intuitively pursues Tybalt; he is killed as well, fueling the ever burning family rivalry. Romeo is then banished causing his mother, Lady Montague, to die of a broken heart in her sorrow for the loss of her only son. The morning after her death, Lord Montague said to the Friar, “Alas, my liege, my wife is dead to-night! Grief of my son's exile hath stopp'd her breath.” (5.3.219-220).
The feud between the two families played a huge part of the deaths of the two lovers. Since Romeo had the last name of Montague and Juliet had the last name of Capulet they were to be sworn enemies. Romeo and Juliet go against their parents and marry their own “enemy”. Because they got married they feel that they should keep

In Act 2 Scene2, after Macbeth murders Duncan, even he himself describes Duncan's death as "a sorry sight". He says that "Look on't again I dare not". On this stage, Macbeth still has conscience.
