Lord Capulet was the one who allowed Romeo to stay at the Capulet party, where Romeo met Lord Capulet’s daughter, Juliet (1:5:64). He could have forced Romeo out of the party; therefore, he never would have met Juliet, and no one would have died for their love. Juliet would have married Paris without a reason to seek the Friar’s advice. In addition, Prince Escalus also “lost a brace of kinsmen” due to the feud between the Capulets and Montagues (5:3:294). Other families have suffered losses because of the feud between these two families that lasted for generations.
Fate is commonly overlooked as being the sole cause of their deaths, but in my opinion it is what brought the two lovers to their end. Throughout the play it reveals that their lives will end by their influences and actions, "A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life". This unavoidable aspect may have made Romeo and Juliet fall in love just to end the feud between the two houses. An important act of fate to consider would be the masquerade ball, if Romeo wasn’t wearing a mask Juliet would have realised who he was and may have not fallen in love with him. Romeo was too young to realise that he should have waited until he got over Rosaline before he became involved with Juliet.
Shakespeare created 2 star-crossed who struggle to find balance with their love without upsetting those around them who disapprove. The play focuses on their love along with others around them that affect their everyday lives. This issue leads to future problems that surface in the play such as their own deaths. Those around Romeo and Juliet are to blame for their suicides.
When Capulet decided that “[Romeo] shall be endured [and to] take no note of him” at the ball. Had Capulet made Romeo go, Juliet would not have met Romeo. Capulet was at direct fault for Juliet and Romeo’s introduction. Also, Capulet is at blame because of the family feud. Without the feud, Juliet would be free to marry Romeo with no problem.
(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s personality drastically changes. At first Romeo was love-sick and Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage. Then they meet, fall in love and get married.
Romeo for his immature behaviour and killing Tybalt which made him banished, Friar Lawrence for helping the two lovers in their plans to be together, and love, because Romeo and Juliet were so deeply in love they could not live without each other so they both killed themselves. Without these three key elements in the play Romeo and Juliet would not have been
Both families have only one child Romeo and Juliet, the pair fall in love and throughout the play we see them longing to be together despite knowing that their families will never agree to this relationship. Which soon leads to the tragic death of both Romeo and Juliet. Along the way multiple characters are to blame as they contribute to the tragic end particularly Romeo and Juliet themselves, Friar Laurence and The Capulet and Montague family who also play their part. Paragraph 1: Romeo and Juliet are almost entirely responsible for their own deaths. As the play is set over a sequence of five days it was obvious that no thought was put into their terrible decisions which led to their tragic deaths.
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
Who is to blame for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet? The play ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is a romantic tragedy written by William Shakespeare, where the eponymous characters play a vital role in relation to their untimely death, thus can be blamed. In the addition to the protagonists, Friar Lawrence and the nurse indirectly contribute to the disastrous outcome, partly due to their lack of guidance to the young romantics. These four characters in the text are all held to be somewhat responsible for the disastrous occurrences that ultimately result in two suicides and 4 deaths. The play explores a short journey of “two star crossed lovers” who unite their two rivaling families through grief.
After hearing of Romeo’s banishment and being forced to marry Paris in the upcoming days, Juliet rushes to the Friar for advice. Although betraying Juliet, the Nurse’s decision to side with Lady Capulet was probably one of the smartest choices in the play. Unlike the Friar, the Nurse realized how outcome of Romeo and Juliet’s marriage could end badly. The Friar continues his irresponsible and childish actions by conjuring up a plan and potion in a matter of minutes. “Friar Lawrence, less ambitious and more desperate than his fellow manipulators, does not hope that Juliet’s death will dissolve the families’ hatreds but only that it will give Romeo and chance to come and carry her off” (Snyder).
