There is an example of this when Romeo attends the Capulet’s party, and this is where he is first exposed to Juliet and where the misfortune begins. At this point in time Romeo and Juliet immediately fall in love with one another. Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet, this is a problem for their love since the two families are quarreling with each other. They cannot see each other while in the presence of another family member. Their relationship has to be kept a secret and the only ones that know of it are Friar Laurence and
The moment Romeo and Juliet meets is the exact incident that leads them to their death. As it mentions in the prologue, “A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life (line 6)” This line already mentions that Romeo and Juliet will end up dying. It tells us that it is them who take their own life. Later on in the play, these lovers did have many struggles and many things were not in their favor. To start off, it wasn’t merely a coincidence that Romeo and Juliet met.
Fate is the prominent reason for the death of both Romeo and Juliet. In the prologue, they are illustrated as “A pair of star-crossed lovers” and later on their love is described as “death mark’d”. Right in the beginning, Shakespeare demonstrates that fate will bring them together, but it will also be the cause of their death. The play could have had a very different conclusion if some circumstances had been different. Perhaps the biggest determining factor of Romeo and Juliet’s demise was the fact that their families were feuding.
The two families hold a immense responsibility for the deaths of the star cross lovers as they kept the feud going far longer than what was necessary. The conflict set a strong presumption that Romeo and Juliet's relationship would not be supported, forcing them to keep it secret.The rivalry also caused Tybalt and Mercutio’s violent deaths which had an enormous effect to how their love story ended. Juliet's parents especially should be blamed. Lady capulet, Juliet's mother was narrow minded and domineering. She believed an arranged marriage was a necessity for Juliet without considering Juliet's opinions or concerns.
Who is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet? Firstly, I would blame Lord Capulet as he causes his own daughter's death by forcing Juliet to marry Paris only a few days after her cousin, Tybalt's, death. Juliet protests this marriage because she alone knows that she and Romeo have been secretly married. However, Lord Capulet refuses to listen to anything she has to say and threatens to throw her out of the house and out onto the streets. "And you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets."
WHO DO YOU THINK WAS THE MOST RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATHS OF ROMEO AND JULIET? Who is really to be blamed? There are so many suspects and discussion to who is to be blamed for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet but still no one can really choose, it could be Faith, The Nurse, The Prince Escalus, Mercutio, Lord and Lady Montague practically anyone who had a significant relationship in Romeo and Juliet’s life, but even so Romeo and Juliet could be blamed for their own death, who knows. Most of the events that happen in Romeo and Juliet lead up to the final conclusion of the couple dying. Many, if not all, of the characters plays an ultimate role in their tragic deaths.
The endless feuding between the two families is a major aspect that contributed to the lover’s tragedy. Romeo and Juliet are unable to be in love because of their family’s non-acceptance of their love and hatred for each other’s family. This is a crucial for many years, “from ancient grudge break to new mutiny”, without cause or even logic, as it suggests in the prologue “where civil blood makes civil hands unclean… two households both alike in dignity”. The family’s feud is displayed further with the e Verona’s ancient citizens cast by their grave beseeming ornaments, to weird old partisans, in hands as old canker’d with peace to part your canker’d hate.” – the prince is asking the families to resolve their conflict and remarks on how old it is that it is without cause and relevance to the current generation. Because of the families non-acceptance from an out-dated feud it results in the death of Romeo and Juliet, as it proclaims in the prologue “from forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life”.
In a Shakespearean tragedy the characters always die at the end. These two families The Capulet and the Montague are the worst enemies in the city. Their enmity is ancient, however the play was originally set in Verona Italy and was performed at the Global Theatre which meant that it the one the most important plays ever and was performed during the day. The scene I am directing is a grand party at the Capulet. In this scene Romeo risks his life to come to his foes party.
Father’s Egotistical Behavior Who is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet? Capulet was to be the most responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet since he had the most negative influence over the situation. First, Capulet forced Juliet to marry Paris in order for his family to climb the social ladder. Then, Capulet refused to even listen to his daughter when she pleaded with him to not force the marriage. Instead he verbally abused her and threatened to disown her if she would not obey his command to marry Paris.
In Romeo and Juliet, the hatred between the families affects not only Romeo and Juliet, but the entire town. In the prologue of the play it summarizes the conflict between the two families, "a long-standing hatred between two families erupts into new violence" (I.prologue.2-3). The families' duels were often in public and led to riots. Had the families not hated each other or banned the marriage, there would have been no need for either pair of lovers to keep their love a secret. This would have kept Pyramus and Thisbe from sneaking out to meet each other, and Romeo and Juliet from hiding their marriage and prevented Romeo from being banished.
