Who knew Tybalt's unwelcome demeanor towards the Montagues would give out a quick backlash? In Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt's resentful, turbulent and belligerent disposition caused him chaos, and eventually, death. Tybalt's resentfulness towards the Montagues was one of the main causes of his early demise in Romeo and Juliet. As an example, as Tybalt saw Sampson and Gregory talking to some servingmen of the Montagues, he questioned them (referring to Abram and another servingman of the Montagues) and asked, "What, art thou drawn among these heartless hinds?" (1.1.67) In a way, this tells the reader that Tybalt showed his annoyance of the Montagues by insulting them and calling them unworthy peasants.
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet clearly shows how animosity between groups will inevitably lead to unnecessary death. Animosity was pertinent in the play with the cruel hatred between the Montague and Capulet families, which ultimately lead to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.

Animosity is also relevant in our world today because of the civil war in former Yugoslavia, which killed hundreds of thousands of people. These examples show that the animosity seen in Romeo and Juliet is also relevant in today’s society, because it has resulted in many unnecessary deaths.
Also, the Capulet family was in a fight with the Montague family. You can clearly see this when it is said “by thee, old Capulet, and Montague, Have thrice disturb’d the quiet of our streets…” (1.1.88-89).This fight made it even harder for Juliet because her and Romeo were not allowed to be together. Lastly, Lord and Lady Capulet had far too much control over her and would not allow her to do anything she wanted “To go with Paris to Saint Peters church, or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither.” (3.5.154-155).The fact that her parents were doing this is what forced Juliet to lie to them about Romeo. The way that Juliet’s parents controlled her and treated her all led up to her
Throughout the play Romeo and Juliet, countless losses of loved ones were seen from both of the feuding families, the Capulets and Montagues. Many could say that fate was the cause of numerous deaths over the course of the play. However, free will is the main cause of these deaths. Every choice has resulted in different effects in the play. In this tragedy by William Shakespeare, multiple deaths occur due to the decisions made by Romeo, Friar Lawrence, and Lord Capulet.
This relates to many teens worldwide that are misunderstood by their parents about their feelings. Furthermore, the two families Capulet and Montague demonstrate universal relevance and generation gaps through tradition. This idea of tradition is present within the social systems and families of Montague and Capulet, it is introduced in the prologue when it says: “ from ancient grudge…” (Prologue) which is stating the tradition of the feud between the families. Since Romeo and Juliet did not even know each other but grew up having to hate each other because of the traditions of their families hating each other. This portrays the generation gap and tradition
The Flaw of Cowardice Mai Tran Mr. Cassidy ENG3U-05 June 13, 2012 No matter how decisive or strong-willed one can be, there will always be a voice within that questions any action taken, and bring a sense of insecurity.
