If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty.
This fight between Romeo, Mercutio and Tybalt ends in serious matters. Tybalt comes up to Romeo wanting to fight him, but Mercutio steps in and starts fighting Tybalt. Mercutio is struck by Tybalt and as a result of this, Romeo says to Benvolio when everyone has left, “This day’s black fate on more days doth depend; This but begins the woe, others must end” (3.1.124-125). Romeo is furious at Tybalt for what he did to Mercutio that and he wants revenge so he goes after Tybalt, fights him and kills him. The Prince banishes Romeo from Verona as a consequence for his actions. Romeo killing Tybalt is a decision made by free will. As stated in The Choice is Yours: The Fate of Free Will, sometimes a teen’s brain can decide a series of actions before the person is aware of it. Romeo is furious and his brain leads him to the decision to kill Tybalt because his anger gets the best of him. Of course, most actions come with a consequence and because Romeo is banished, he will never be able to see his beloved Juliet ever again. Sadly, the fight is only the beginning to the downfall of these “star-crossed
Moreover, in the beginning of the very tragic love story, Romeo had gone to a Capulet party that wasn 't really meant for him go to. Montagues and Capulets don 't mesh well yet he still went to see the girl he was said to be in love with, Rosaline. This is when the tragedy started to unravel. Tybalt spotted Romeo even though Romeo. Tybalt instantly had an urge to kill him. They were not on the best terms what so ever. Lord Capulet really wanted to just keep the peace, he didn 't want any outburst at his party. Lord Capulet had said to Tybalt “Content thee, gentle coz. Let him alone’’(1.5.3). Lord Capulet also had told Tybalt that Romeo was a good person in general and not to worry about him. Tybalt listened for that time at the party, even though he really didn 't want to at all. Right after the party is when he couldn 't contain his anger. Tybalt sent a challenge letter to Romeo.
“Happiness is good, sadness is bad but together, they create a good story” These words from Luna Adriana Ardiansyah fit excellent for describing the erratic story of Romeo and Juliet. This story goes up and down with deaths, bad situations and plot twists. All these events led to different tragic events and Tybalt's death was one of them. In the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Tybalt is liable for his own death because he makes irrational decisions, he has anger issues, and he always has held a grudge against the Montagues.
His family”s pride showed no boundaries as Tybalt stated in (Act 1. Scene 5. 56-57) “Now by the honor of our family, I do not consider it a crime to kill him”(about Romeo). In this scene, Romeo came uninvited to the Capulets party. Tybalt was very hostile towards this move and saw it as an offense to his family’s name. As this quote demonstrates Tybalt doesn't fear the consequences even if it means death. In the same act, Lord Capulet tells Tybalt not to start anything or destroy Romeo's reputation because he has not done anything wrong. Yet Tybalt's Stubbornness results in Lord Capulet calling Tybalt a child which angered his pride. In a sense, Tybalt was only killing in part because of the rivalry between both families.
Those are the 3 reasons why Tybalt is to blame for Romeo and Juliet. Tybalt was a troublemaker and also a good sword fighter and picked a lot of fights. He fought Mercutio and killed him by accident. Tybalt was slain by Romeo because Tybalt killed his best friend. Tybalt was also mad because Romeo came to his party and thought that it was a
From the moment children are born, their actions begin to have an exponential effect on the lives of those around them. No action is free of consequences, and the decisions made throughout an individuals life can make or break the following course of events. William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a perfect example of how poor choices don’t only affect one’s own futures but also those of their communities. Romeo and Juliet fall in love despite their families, the Montagues and the Capulets, being enemies. The two marry in secret and plan to live a happy life together before a deadly fight breaks out between the Montagues and the Capulets and the lovers are separated. The heartbreaking story consists of risky decisions and bad timing. Romeo’s own impulsive nature, demonstrated when he kills Juliet’s kinsman, breaks Verona’s law of banishment, and suicidal act, all contribute to the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet.
We perceive that Romeo is innocent due to his apparent love for Tybalt and his clear disesteem to the brawl unfolding. He wanted to advent the violence thrust upon him by his love (Tybalt). He cared too much to fight him but when a good life-long friend, Mercutio, is murdered in front of his very eyes he is shaken to the core. He did this while not in the correct state of mind, cleary in a haze of sorrow and guilt not yet fully comprehending the effects of his actions. His gentle altercation with Tybalt defines his love for his friends and family.
In William Shakespeare’s timeless play Romeo and Juliet, two star crossed lovers are faced with great adversity as they hide their romance from their feuding families. As author James Lane Allen once said, “Adversity does not build character, it reveals it”. Romeo, a Montague, struggles to hide his love for the Capulet daughter, Juliet, from his family and friends. The challenge of lying to his closest companions, and going against his family’s ways to secretly marry Juliet causes Romeo to act erratically and carelessly. Throughout Act 3 Scene One, Shakespeare exposes the lovestruck Romeo’s mercurial nature and impulsivity through his thoughtless actions.
Tybalt is an insanely hateful character especially towards Romeo and his household. “Turn thee, Benvolio! Look upon thy death”. (1.1.60) This statement uttered by Tybalt is a threat to benvolio one of Romeo’s best and most trusted friends in Verona. And when you threaten someone's best friend you are hateful of them and all associates of this person. “as I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.” (1.1.64) Tybalt
By intervening in Mercutio and Tybalt’s fight, Romeo’s helpful intention leads to deadly consequences for Mercutio, Tybalt, and himself. When Tybalt insults Romeo, calling him a villain, he is not concerned. Romeo informs Tybalt that his cruel insults do not irritate him, as because of his
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know 'st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.” when he finds out that Juliet is dead, but doesn’t know she faked her death. Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man. I see that thou art poor: hold, there is forty ducats: let me have a dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear as will disperse itself through all the veins that the life-weary taker may fall dead and that the trunk may be discharged of breath as violently as hasty powder fired doth hurry from the fatal cannon 's womb.” These quotes show you that Romeo is planning to kill himself because of Juliet faking her death, which Romeo doesn’t know about. In the end, Romeo kills himself by poison and dies by Juliet and then Juliet stabs herself and dies when she finds Romeo dead. This is truly a tragic story because of the deaths of these two young lovers because of one of Tybalt’s
¨Bullying is a national epidemic” (Macklemore) bullying has always been a problem but no one seems to try and stop it. In the novel Shattering Glass and the play Romeo and Juliet the evolution of bullying can be seen, but yet no one had tried to stop it in either of the books. In the play Romeo and Juliet the families bully each other around until eventually their own kids take their lives, because they could not be together due to the feud. In the book Shattering Glass by Gail Giles the characters touch a little bit on cyberbullying, but mainly they verbally and physically abuse people in the story to help them achieve what the characters want.
Tybalt believes that Romeo attended the fest to mock and show disgrace to the Capulet and therefore wanted to kill Romeo. however, which in fact is not true as Romeo came to meet Rosaline and is known in the city to be a very nice man. Tybalt’s feeling about Romeo is not due to his actions but because of his passionate hate for Romeo as he is a Montague a family enemy.
Communication is always crucial for the success and happiness in relationships. However, when done wrong, it usually results in failure. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, poor communication causes characters to make bad decisions that lead to the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet. Poor communication between the characters is found by keeping secrets, which prevents the revealing of truth and through assumption in which characters do not try to find the truth. As the play progresses it becomes evident that poor communication has negative impacts on the story causing the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.
