179-84). The Prince is angry that the feud between the two families has led to the murder of his relative. He tells Romeo that if he does not leave immediately and not return that he will be put to death. Romeo is not at all grateful that his life has been spared and says “There is no world without Verona walls, but purgatory torture, hell itself ...Then “banishment,” is death misterm’d. Calling death “banishment”.” (3.2.
Romeo is emotionally confused so he says, “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him (3.1.91).” Romeo just kills his wife's cousin without thinking how she would feel or what would happen. He made a fatal mistake because after that he had to leave the city. Which would
After Tybalt had just injured Mercutio in the battle that was not supposed to be with him, Mercutio states that wrath will be put on the families. He swore,“I am hurt/A plague a both houses! I am sped./ Is he gone and hath nothing?” (2.1.867) Tybalt never would have never been mad enough to attempt to kill Romeo, but instead Mercutio if he had not gone to the party. If Tybalt would not have killed Mercutio then Romeo would not have killed Tybalt, leading to him being banished and Juliet being distraught enough to fake her own death. To this end, Tybalt played a huge role in the death of Romeo and Juliet.
Since Friar John did not deliver the message, Romeo's messenger heard Juliet had died and Romeo went to see her. When he reached her tomb, he killed himself by drinking a potion. When Juliet awoke with Friar Laurence, who then left without her, and she stabbed herself. Some people might say Friar Laurence is not at fault for this because he might have thought she was following, but he still should have checked. Since the beginning of Romeo and Juliet, both Romeo and Juliet had been extremely emotional and overdramatic.
When Juliet didn’t want to married Paris, Friar Lawrence gave her poison to make her fate her death. Friar Lawrence is the reason why Juliet is dead because he gave her the poison and didn’t warn Romeo about his plan. In act 4, scene 1, line 93 Friar Lawrence says to Juliet “Take thou vial being in bed.” Friar Lawrence is giving Juliet the poison. Juliet does as he tells her. The result is Romeo ends up killing himself because he was not aware of Friar Lawrence 's plan with
Finally, Mercutio got himself and Tybalt killed, and Romeo banished because of his arrogance and selfishness. Tybalt and Mercutio met in the streets and since they were enemies they pulled out their swords and dueled. Granted they were both cocky teenage boys wanting to show off, but they started a long trail of deaths. The Prince of Verona said that if anyone was caught in the streets fighting they would be put to death. Romeo didn’t want his new wife’s cousin Tybalt or his best friend Mercutio to die, so he tried to break the up the sword fight.
For being banished is just as good as death. The banishment places an invisible wall between Romeo and Juliet meeting again. It also shows the reality to Juliet that she could just leave him but she didn’t. Even when her father had scheduled the marriage with Paris. Juliet found a way to fake her death to get out of the marriage.
In this play we discovered that Lord Capulet had some things to do with the deaths of Romeo and Juliet but it wasn’t just Lord Capulet who had something to do with the deaths but also Friar Lawrence had a lot to do with Juliet 's death like giving her that poison to fake her death. If the Montagues and the Capulets stopped fighting along time before this a lot of people could have not lost their lives because of this. So Friar saw an opportunity to fix this family feud and he married the two thinking it would help but it only made it worse. This is just like wars going on today in the world, we all don 't agree with each other and we fight and kill each other because we think it 's going to help our problems but it 's just going to make it all worse in
The character Romeo Montague in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, makes many poor decisions, specifically, when he kills Tybalt in an enthralling duel and later takes his life to be with Juliet Capulet.

Due to disrupting the streets of Verona, Romeo’s punishment made by Prince Escalus is banishment. Romeo then hides in Friar Laurence’s cell and threatens to commit suicide because he feels there is no world without the Verona walls. For instance, Romeo states, “Then “banishèd,”/ Is death mistermed.
Romeo calls himself “Fortune’s Fool” and realizes that he is going to have to face a punishment for his actions, that are of course caused by fate (3.1.142).
