The feud of the two houses had annoyed Verona. The blood of those who killed because of hatred, were crying out for the folly to stop in order to live. Moreover, fate seemed to plot the end of the folly feud by letting Romeo fall in love with Juliet. But love was a storm, because sudden love was madness and the fire of youth disturbed the balance. Hate and hot blood put an end to all the chances of marriage and caused death (Masefield,70-71).Shakespeare perfectly shows anger thought out his play.
This meant that Juliet could not admit she was already married to Romeo her “enemy”. “He’s alive and victorious, and Mercutio’s dead . Enough time with mercy and consideration”act 3 scene 1 line 1. This shows that Tybalt had killed Mercutio because Mercutio hung with Romeo and hated Montagues. This lead to the death of Mercutio.
Could a feud be the cause of its own end? In Act I of Romeo and Juliet the reader learns of a feud between the Capulets and Montagues. In Act V of the play the feud is resolved with the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The feud is responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet since it prevented then from being married publicly. The feud also caused the fights which led to Romeo’s banishment.
In Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet are burdened by forbidden love and death is the only way they can be together. Their love is torn between the feuding families of the Montagues and the Capulets and death is the only solution to relinquish their lives for each other. Because of this, death is the hero while love is the villain. In Act I Scene V, Romeo says, “Is she a Capulet?
Tybalt 's death in Romeo and Juliet is precisely planned on multiples aspects. The reasons that lead to his death also play into teaching the theme behind his character, which can be used to represent anger and what it drives you to do. On the same hand, though, Tybalt is very weighed down by his pride and honor. Taking this into account, it can be argued that Tybalt is written to express the dangers of being hostile and close-minded; as soon as he sees Romeo at the party, for the rest of the play, he is set on his revenge against the member of his enemy family. Being ruled by his set of ideas and emotions and his persistence with these ultimately
Romeo and Juliet’s Decision Making Process A prologue reads: “From forth the fatal loins of these two foes /A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life” (1.1.5-6).

There is a miscommunication between the Friar and Romeo when Romeo comes back to Verona to find Juliet dead rather than learning the details from Friar’s letter which never got to him. After seeing Juliet’s corpse, Romeo drinks a deadly poison moments before Juliet wakes up. When Juliet sees that Romeo is dead she proceeds to stab herself with a dagger.

Later, when Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo seeks revenge. After Mercutio’s death, Romeo says “This but begins the woe others must end” (3.1.125). Although Prince Escalus has publicly decreed the penalty of fighting in the streets of Verona is death, Romeo still feels he “must end” the fight. Romeo’s indubitable loyalty causes his banishment.

The play is Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, and the theme of the play is the power of love. I have chosen the secondary character and Juliet's cousin Tybalt, and he influences the outcome of the story with his harsh and violent nature, ego, and hatred of Romeo's family. Tybalt is introduced as an angry, brash person and his persona helps greatly with the escalation to the eventual tragedy. His ego and loyalty to his family lead him to challenge Romeo to a swordfight, wherein Mercutio stepped in and ultimately sacrificed himself for Romeo to have the upper hand in the battle.

All men in the world do not appreciate their masculinity to be challenged, which goes against their own code of honor. In the play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Romeo, Tybalt and Mercutio disrupt each other’s codes of honor by their actions in Act III, scene i. These three men’s codes of honor contribute to the tragedy of the play because of their views on masculinity, such as when Tybalt kills Mercutio and when Romeo kills Tybalt. Here, Tybalt mocks Romeo’s masculinity, leading Mercutio to duel him in order to honor Romeo.
Who’s Responsible? In the book Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Tybalt is like the parasite in this story. It is evident that Tybalt is primarily responsible for Romeo’s death and the people he killed. He engaged Mercutio and held a grudge against Romeo for crashing his party.
Saint Basil once said “Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger”. Many a time, people curse things intending to bring harm, when in reality they bring a greater good. Such is the case in William Shakespeare’s play, The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. The play tells the story of two forbidden lovers and their feuding families. But some question who actually caused the death of both Romeo and Juliet.
Looking around a highschool classroom and studying the faces of the students. Wondering about the choices they have made, universal choices that will permanently affect them and their future, like ripples on the water of a usually still lake.
