As I said before in the beginning of the book Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is gloomy and feeling hopeless about love because Rosaline (the women he “loves”) is not going to get married. He says: “She is too fair, too wise, wisely to far, To merit bliss by making
The Betrayal of the Only Child In Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, two young lovers, Romeo and Juliet, from rivalling families must hide their love for each other, or face the wrath of their parents. Throughout the play, many characters are subject to a betrayal, or betray someone or something else. For example, Friar Lawrence betrays his duty as a priest in Verona by marrying Romeo and Juliet, and Tybalt betrays Lord Capulet by hunting Romeo. However, the most significant betrayal in the play is Lord and Lady Capulet's betrayal of Juliet by forcing her to marry Paris, and completely disregarding her wants. This betrayal hurt Juliet in many ways, and it hurt her parents a little too, as this would soon lead to her death.
During a tremendous argument between Juliet and her mother, Lady Capulet claims that Juliet must marry Paris, an innocent, charming man who wants to marry her, but she refuses and shouts, “ He shall not make me there a joyful bride…I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear it shall be Romeo” (3.5.132-137). Even though Juliet was already married to Romeo, she could have accepted her fate because of the hatred between the Montague and Capulet families. Yelling at her parents causes them to be mad at her, and lying makes the situation worse. Eventually, the choices the two “star-crossed lovers” made led to their
Romeo and Juliet fall in love, but they come from families which hate each other, and know they will not be allowed to marry. So they marry in secret instead. However, Juliet is then told she must marry Paris, who has been chosen by her parents, who do not know she is already married. She refuses - then agrees because she plans to fake her death and escape to be with Romeo. It is forbidden to marry when you are already married.
In the end, it is both fate and misfortune that are driving them to their untimely deaths. Although some characters may contribute to their bad luck, no single person is held accountable. The enduring quarrel between the two families proves that Romeo and Juliet were never supposed to be together in the first place. The Capulet family is very conventional, and would want their only daughter to marry someone of who they approve. The arranged marriage between Juliet and Paris is just another obstacle hindering Romeo and Juliet from having a future together.
Who is responsible for the tragic ending of Romeo and Juliet? Intro: In the play ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by William Shakespeare; two lovers Romeo and Juliet are unable to be together due to family circumstances. ‘Romeo and Juliet' tells the story of 'a pair of star-crossed lovers', torn between the families in what seems to be a never ending family feud which was set in the town of Verona, Italy.

69-70 ) This made Juliet miserable over Romeo's banishment, meanwhile her parents thought her unhappiness was over Tybalt's death. Then, Juliet's parents, trying to make her happy, moved up her wedding date, only to make her even more depressed due to the fact she was already married to Romeo. All of this led up to Juliet's fake death, which caused both of their deaths. Romeo and Juliet are at fault for their own deaths. Romeo and Juliet did not have to keep their love a secret.
Due to Desdemona’s never ending, continuous love for Othello, she ultimately played a role in her own death. The love Desdemona feels for Othello is seen in the fact that she goes against her family and marries the man she loves, not the man that may necessarily be more suited for her. Brabantio, Desdemona’s father, believes that Othello lures Desdemona away with his witchcraft and that her life would be much better if they never married. However, Desdemona ignores her father’s instruction; despite the fact Brabantio believes their relationship is unnatural: “She [Desdemona] is abused, stol’n from me and corrupted by spells and medicines bought of mountebanks; for natures so preposterously to err, being not deficit, blind or lame of sense, sans witchcraft could not” (Othello, 1.3.60-64). At first, Brabantio believes that his daughter was tricked by Othello, that he stole her away with his magic spells and witchcraft.
