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.
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). This implies that Romeo held a grudge against Tybalt for killing his own friend. This grudge motivated Romeo to kill Tybalt which then motivated Paris to fight Romeo in 5.3. This cycle of hatred between the two families is also what caused the fight scene in 1.1 where the Capulets and Montagues saw each other, then spat rude comments at each other
William Shakespeare often writes about tragedy in a unique way. A great example of this is his play Romeo and Juliet. In Romeo and Juliet, many characters are to blame for the deaths because of their character flaws and harsh decisions. Some of the characters to blame are Tybalt, Friar Lawrence, Romeo, Juliet, and Mercutio. In the play there is this ongoing war between the Motagues and the Capulets.
On line 2 Benvolio says ‘The day is hot’ that gives the sense foreboding. Mercutio fights Tybalt as he is trying to hurt his best friend and Romeo declined the duel. Romeo steps between them and Tybalt strikes Mercutio under Romeo’s arm. ‘A plague a’both your houses!’ Mercutio repeats this three times in this scene to get the message across he is blaming both Romeo and Tybalt for his death. Mercutio responsibilities Romeo for Tybalt killing him ‘I was hurt under your arm’ Romeo feels guilty about Mercutio’s death even though the audience know it is not his fault.
Do you believe in eye for an eye, better known as revenge? How about second chances, mercy or forgiveness for anyone, regardless of any wrongs they have committed? In the play and story of “Romeo and Juliet” revenge and hatred are present in many places, the most memorable and prominent being the deaths of Mercutio and Tybalt. A quote that comes to mine from the world renowned and cherished philosopher Confucius, “When going on a journey for revenge, you must dig two graves, one for your victim, and one for yourself.” Louis L’Amour, “A wise man fights to win, but he is twice a fool who has no plan for possible defeat”. This relates to Tybalt starting the fight because he fights and kills Mercutio but has no plan for defeat when fighting with Benvolio; meaning he didn’t think of the thrashing of himself after the possible fight.
After completing this it will be evident that Romeo, Friar Lawrence and love are all to blame. Firstly, Romeo is banished from Verona for killing Tybalt, a Capulet, because Tybalt killed Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. This led to Romeo not hearing about the plan to fake Juliet’s death so that she did not have to marry Paris. When Romeo heard she was dead he killed himself, then Juliet awoke and found Romeo dead and killed herself. “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that killed him, he is banished.” This quote is saying that Romeo killed Tybalt and is now banished because of it.
The result of that was Romeo had been banished for murdering Tybalt. Even when dead Tybalt became a burden. When Romeo was banished he could no longer see Juliet and she went to the Friar to seek answers. Tybalt would have been happy that his death had caused the death of a Montague but I think he would have felt a little guilt for the death of his young
If Mercutio let Romeo fight with Tybalt he might still be alive. Mercutio said “O Clam, dishonourable, vile submission,” when Tybalt was beaten up Romeo. It was his own fault the Tybalt killed him because he could have stood back and watched Romeo fight Tybalt
Dear Prince, I beg of thee to drop or even minimize the charges towards Romeo Montague. Please do this task I ask you because even though Romeo killed Tybalt, it was out of revenge considering Tybalt was the one that killed. Tybalt also wanted to fight with Romeo, so Tybalt started this whole thing. The two families always hated each other, so it’s not like Romeo did it for no reason. I believe Romeo killed Tybalt because Tybalt was the killer of his best friend Mercutio.
Romeo and Tybalt start fighting with Romeo killing Tybalt. Romeo again shows his impulsiveness killing Tybalt, where he had no business calling him out. He failed to think of the consequences and his actions led to his banishment to city named
