Marquez says he thinks Nasar died not knowing what he had done wrong, causing the reader to develop a sense of situational irony because if the Twins had simply pursued the action that the majority of the townspeople believed would happen, forcing Santiago Nasar to marry Angela to restore the family honor, they would have possibly found out that Angela lied about losing her virginity to Santiago, and instead found the person who was truly guilty of taking the family’s honor.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s novella Chronicle of a Death Foretold, paints a society where honor is valued above all else and the murder of friends was accepted and encouraged by the people. Pablo and Pedro held the knives, however the anachronistic beliefs held by the townspeople plunged the blades into Santiago’s

Placing the Blame The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet truly becomes a tragedy once Mercutio, Romeo’s close friend, is killed by the hand of Tybalt. Multiple claims could be made regarding who is responsible for Mercutio’s death, but he himself is ultimately to blame. Once Tybalt approaches him, Mercutio begins to instigate. The heat at the time of this scene was hardly bearable, making matters worse as Mercutio quickly becomes irritable. He made insulting comments and aggravating remarks, pushing Tybalt to the point of fighting.
This is evident after Tybalt kills Romeo’s good friend, Mercutio, Romeo seeks revenge and kills Tybalt. The prince then punishes Romeo by banishing him from the country. This event was caused by fate. Fate played out events specifically so Mercutio could die. Romeo backing down from fighting Tybalt and Mercutio taking his place was caused by fate.

Tayo loss two of the people he lived while fighting a war for the white people. He had not gain anything but despair, guilt, and bad memories that he tried to bury in his mind.
Romeo immediately blamed it on being in love with Juliet because it made him more “effeminate”. So he turns around and fights Tybalt, which results in Romeo killing Tybalt. Sure, he did kill one of his best friends but if he thought it through maybe the story would have turned out completely different. “Now, Tybalt, take the "villain" back again, that late thou gavest me; for Mercutio's soul is but a little way above our heads, staying for thine to keep him company: Either thou, or I, or both, must go with him.” (Romeo-3.1) This quote is what Romeo says when he finds out Mercutio is dead. This quote is basically saying that Mercutio’s soul isn’t gone yet and is waiting for Tybalt to keep him company, basically that Tybalt’s about to die.
