If Capulet had not moved up the wedding the Juliet and Romeo could have happily escaped together. Finally, the family feud between the Capulet’s and the Montague’s. During the beginning of the story the chorus gives us a story overview by saying, “From forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star crossed lovers take their life” (7). If the two families were never feuding then Romeo and Juliet could have been happily married. The feud is the main issue in the story.
Juliet should have went with her parent’s decision of Paris, she could possibly still be alive. Blame can be very detrimental to a person. Mercutio is most to blame. If he weren’t to give Romeo a speech about his dream, all would be okay. It’s safe to say blaming Mercutio is the best option since most actions and reactions lead back to him.
The Friar agreed to secretly marry them, which was not wise. He knew that the marriage would not be right but married them to “turn (their) household’s rancour to pure love.” This action may have been well wishing, but it was wrong to get Romeo and Juliet married. Instead, he should have told the parents. This might have resulted in Romeo and Juliet not meeting again, but it could have also resulted in them eventually getting married. In either case, no-one would have died.
Speaking to the Friar Lawrence of the suggestion to use dead/undead poison, Juliet replies, “Give me, give me! O tell me not of fear”(IV.iv.121) One can see that Juliet is a quick, and not so thought out thinker when she is desperate. “What if it be a poison which the friar/subtly hath minister’d to have me dead/Lest in this marriage he should be dishonoured/Because he married me before to Romeo?/I fear it is, and yet me thinks it should not?”(IV.iii.24-28) Momentarily one can see that Juliet does think of consequences, but she always lets herself believe that everything is for the best. She easily convinces herself that it all will work out in the end. Thought when things do not work out and Juliet finds Romeo dead, she abruptly makes the decision to kill herself.
Till Death Do Us Part A person of power is responsible for those underneath them. In William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, there are many people who were the reason of their death. Tybalt is one of the persons who caused the death of Romeo and Juliet, because he killed Romeo’s best friend, with the death of Mercutio Romeo thought it was the right thing to go kill Tybalt, Romeo didn’t think of the consequences of murdering Tybalt and was banished from Verona. Capulet didn’t think at all about his daughter Juliet of how she felt about marrying Parris, he rushed into things and didn’t mind talking to his own daughter about her feelings and that was one reason she died because she did not love Parris and didn’t want to marry him. Though there are many characters Friar Lawrence is most to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
Friar also trusted Juliet, an unstable teenager, with a near-death poison. This rash decision was very poor on Friar’s behalf. This idea was very risky, and because of it, everyone thinks Juliet is dead and she is buried alive. Had Friar not given Juliet the poison, she would never have been put in this position which leads to Romeo’s death and later Juliet’s. Lord & Lady Capulet are also involved with Romeo & Juliet’s death.
The actions of the nurse and the Friar are responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. From the very begging of Romeo and Juliet’s newfound love, the nurse is supportive and helpful with Juliet. The nurse was an influential adult to Juliet and knew that the Capulets planned for Paris and Juliet to be married. She should have known better and discouraged Juliet from seeing Romeo. Instead, the nurse acted as a messenger between Romeo and Juliet for information about the wedding (Act II, scene iv).
If he had stayed in love with Rosaline then he never would have had to be defended by Mercutio in which battle Mercutio lost his life. Mercutio’s death caused Romeo to want to avenge him by killing Tybalt, which he ended up doing which caused him to be banished, which played a big part in Juliet’s death like state, which when Romeo saw he killed himself. And then when Juliet saw Romeo’s lifeless body, she killed herself as well. Benvolio could be blamed for Romeo and Juliets death as he practically forced Romeo to go to the Capulet’s ball, where he met Juliet and then everything went from
Though not completely responsible, the nurse contributed more or less to the death of the misfortunate lovers. In the beginning of the play we see that the nurse is very supporting of Juliet’s relationship with Romeo, in fact bringing the couple together when Romeo was banished. However in Act Scene the Nurse tells Juliet she’s better off marrying paris. I think it best you marry with the county...Romeo’s a dish clout compared to him”. Had the nurse not betrayed Juliet, Juliet would have been able to make those important decisions with advice from her nurse rather than by herself.
Juliet and Romeo fell in love and got secretely married, for they knew if their familes were to find out, they would be forbidden to see each other. Juliet wanted more than anything to be with Romeo for the rest of her life, but her family got in the way of her and her true love. One day, when Romeo was out in the streets with his cousin Benvolio and his friend Mercutio, Tybalt approached Romeo, requesting to duel him. Knowing that Tybalt was a Capulet, and knowing that if there was another fight to break out in the streets, Romeo would not only be fighting Juliet's cousin, but the Prince would punish him severely. Romeo doesn't want to be seperated from Juliet anymore than he was, so he declined the duel with Tybalt, and told him they had no reason to fight, and that the Prince would not be happy.
