The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is a love story about two star-crossed lovers whose love for each other leads them to kill themselves. Although we tend to blame the deaths of Romeo and Juliet on their fickle and irresponsible behavior, there is one character who I believe is ultimately responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence is the Friar responsible for marriage and confession for the Montagues and the Capulets. When Romeo and Juliet go to the Friar seeking their marriage, he accepts, thinking that the marriage might repair the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues. Friar Lawrence is quite an overly optimistic man, which is the first reason that he is responsible for Romeo and Juliet 's deaths.
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.
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
In the age old story The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, children of feuding families fall in love and end up taking their lives. In their passing they end the feud between their families. The lovers Romeo, a young Montague, and Juliet, a young Capulet, face many challenges that end up the cause for their untimely end. Although their tragic flaws contribute, the feud between the families and fate cause the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Throughout the play Romeo and Juliet show many tragic flaws.
The story of “Romeo and Juliet” is a tragic tale that will never be forgotten. Written by Shakespeare in the 1500’s it’s a story of two young lovers from feuding families. There are many reasons as to why Romeo and Juliet died, but I believe miscommunication is the primary cause of their demise. From an undelivered letter, parents that don’t understand, and lack of communication between themselves, it’s easy to see why this tale had the tragic ending it did. The first example of miscommunication can be seen with the letter that the Friar sent to Romeo.
Bad luck should be to blame for the death of both Romeo and Juliet because of the unfortunate events that were caused by bad luck. First, bad luck borns Romeo and Juliet into feuding families. The families prevent Romeo and Juliet from being together and it leads them to their demise. For example, Romeo & Juliet were born with unfortunate fates as told in the prologue. Chorus says, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life/Whose misadventured piteous overthrows” (Prologue.6-7).
People take responsibility for the things that they have done and the reasons for taking responsibilities are varied, but sometimes they are critical. The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is written by William Shakespeare, and one of the characters is most responsible for the deaths of star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Benvolio, the nephew of Montague, should take the responsibility for the unfortunate couple’s death, although he is the most veritable person throughout the play. In the beginning of the play, Romeo is deeply in love with Rosaline, the niece of Capulet, but Benvolio assumes that his love for her is infatuation because she does not cherish him back albeit Romeo wants to get recognition from her by showing his feeling and expressing his dismay. “
The amount of situations that occur in the span of Romeo and Juliet’s life. First Romeo “falls in love” with Juliet and gets married, then he is forced to leave Verona because he killed Tybalt who also killed Mercutio, then hears news that Juliet suddenly died so he goes back to Verona (and kills Paris while visiting Juliet), and he kills himself for his true love-foreshadowed many times. Gale says,“ But he also concluded that hate was a controllable emotion and that it had ultimately caused the tragic events depicted in Romeo and Juliet.” (under Boethius and Astrology). The feud created such problems upon the families representing how fate intervening was destined, yet could’ve been broken in some possible way. Gale says,” Language can mislead and establishes at the outset of Romeo and Juliet the absurdity of wars and feuds based on simple misunderstandings.”(under
Romeo and Juliet were tragic heroes whose deaths are caused by their own faults and inability to make decisions without minor characters telling them what to do. Romeo causes his own downfall, with his impetuous and reckless nature. Upon seeing Juliet for the first time, Romeo lovingly says, “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! / For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night” (1.5.54-55).
