Once Ross brings him the news of his family’s death, he immediately and wrongly blames himself for their fate, “... Sinful Macduff,/They were all struck for thee! naught that I am,/Not for their own demerits, but for mine... (IV.iii.262-264). Additionally, the way that Macbeth speaks of Macduff when he is planning his family’s murder shows even more how undeserving Macduff is of this cruel and brutal sacrifice, “The castle of Macduff I will surprise:/Seize upon Fife; give to the edge o’ the sword/His wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls... (IV.i.165-167). Although both Macbeth and Macduff used their guilt as motivators to achieve their goals, Macduff was the only one who used it to do something right, which was to help his country. Lady Macbeth was feeble and let her guilt drive her to the point of insanity and suicide, unlike her husband, who was determined to die fighting.
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet.

Thou know 'st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.” when he finds out that Juliet is dead, but doesn’t know she faked her death. Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man.
In the middle of the play, Mercutio cursed both families, “ Or I shall faint. A plague o’ both your houses! / They have made worms’ meat of me. I have it” (3.1.113-114). This means that people start to die because of the Montague and the Capulets’ families.
He said it is not his place to do so and that heaven will judge her when it comes time. The ghost also tells him that he fell asleep in the garden and Claudius poured poison in his ear to kill him. Hamlets fear about his uncle was true after all. “O my prophetic soul!” he cries (1.5.40). After finding out all this information, Hamlet was in a dark spot that lead him to acting insane to investigate the accusations that his father had made.
Tragedy is all around us in the world. The tragedy of Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet is that so many people receive fault for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence is at fault because he tells Juliet to fake her death and he is unable to communicate this to Romeo. Fate is also to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare writes the play giving the audience the final decision of who is at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
In William Shakespeare’s tragedy, “Romeo and Juliet”, Mercutio was murdered and cursed both the Montague and Capulet families in responsibility of his death. Both families played a major role in the cause of Mercutio’s death because of their refusal to push the generation old feud aside for the peace of the realm, they both allowed the hate to trickle down the ranks to the servants and townspeople, and by provoking arguments with each other, knowing the stakes are high and the tension is thick. Tybalt also played a significant role in the death of Mercutio, aside from being Mercutio’s actual murderer. The initial cause of the dispute is never actually addressed in the play, but it is clear that the hate brews on both sides. A good example of how deeply rooted the feud is during the opening act, Act 1 Scene 1.
Fate, above all, destroyed Romeo and Juliet. Several instances in the play reveal that the love of Romeo and Juliet would end in death. "A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life" (Prologue.6) destined for misfortune. It could be that Romeo and Juliet were destined for death so that their families’ feud would be over. Also, in the prologue, it states that their love was "The fearful passage of their death" (Prologue.9).
