The death of Romeo and Juliet is surrounded with a lot of controversy on who is to blame. Some speculate that Friar Lawrence or Lord Capulet is to blame. However, could it be the most unusual suspect in the entire story? Romeo’s best friend Mercutio. In Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the children of two rival houses fall in love but were destined to die tragically from the beginning they met.
In the play Romeo and Juliet one of the main characters, Romeo, is a rather impulsive fellow who acts on what he sees and feels. He falls in love in the blink of an eye and just as fast he can get over it. He is always impulsive but when he finds himself in love his impulsiveness doubles. Romeo’s impulsive decisions causes his love, Juliet, to ultimately get killed. Romeo makes a lot of stupid decisions that gets Juliet killed but I only need two to get my point across.
Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
It has been argued, that the major reasons for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths are the involvement of Friar Lawrence, fate and foolishness. Their love ended early without much thought by either character. Juliet’s condition was not communicated in time to Romeo by Friar Lawrence, and Lawrence’s fail to inform Romeo only made the situation worse. Lawrence’s suspicions of Romeo’s feelings, and his decision to reaction to Romeo and Juliet’s pleas with irrational thought put the couple in danger. These reasons should be considered responsible for the death of the star-crossed
Death, tragedy, misery, love, and unity, all of these words describe the story of Romeo and Juliet, but it all revolved around Tybalt making his first terrible mistake. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare, the short story is that two young lovers secretly get married, people murder in anger, the two lovers get separated, and then end their lives in a tragic death because of no communication. But, like I said, this all revolves around a mistake Tybalt makes because of the feud between the Capulet (Juliet’s family) and the Montague (Romeo’s family). Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because, he killed Mercutio, which lead to Romeo 's banishment, which then leads to the suicides of Romeo
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). Later when Romeo hears of Juliet’s death he blames fate and tries to kill himself, “Is it e’en so?-Then I deny you, stars!” (5.1.25). In this example Romeo is taking responsibility for his past actions by defying fate and taking things into his own hands. Juliet is also a naïve and impulsive girl that
“Sin from my lips? O trespass sweetly urged! Give me my sin back (1.5.109-110).” He is saying that he wants Juliet to love him without knowing who she is.How else will they disobey his advice at all? 3rd point: They need to learn the lesson because Romeo gets into a fight with Tybalt after he killed Mercutio.Romeo loses his best friend but doesn’t think about his wife. 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.
Death and tragedy engulf the people of Verona, who is to blame for this big mess? If you go back to the beginning of William Shakespeare 's play “Romeo and Juliet” it is easy to see this tragedy wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Mercutio and his tendency to meddle in other people’s lives. First he convinced Romeo that his love for Rosaline wasn’t worth it and he needed to get over her. He then led Romeo to his horrific fate when he forced Romeo to crash the Capulet party, where he would first meet his future bride Juliet. If it weren’t for his arrogance and selfishness Mercutio and Tybalt wouldn’t have gotten in a fight, causing Romeo’s banishment.
While Romeo was known for his impulsiveness, it didn 't go to help him out later on. Romeo had been convinced to sneak into the Capulet 's party, and would then lock eyes with a girl that he will forever be in love with. An analysis of Romeo’s character in the play Romeo and Juliet, reveals that his fatal flaw was his impulsiveness due to him falling in love and marrying Juliet, becoming a murder after he had killed Tybalt and Paris, and him killing himself. One reason why Romeo was impulsive was because he had fallen in love with Juliet at first sight. A few days prior, he was love sick about Rosaline, and confessing his love about her, but the moment he set eyes on Juliet, he was struck with love once again.
Friar Lawerance should be held responsible for the suicides because he married Romeo and Juliet for selfish reasons, illegally, and the teens were so overwhelmed by the pressure of the situation. When the Friar married Romeo and Juliet it wasn't for the sake of love. The Friar's alterier motive was in hopes to stop the feud between the Montagues and Capulets. As stated by the Prince in Act 1, "By thee, old Capulet, and Montague, Have thrice disturb’d the quiet of our streets,
