In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet both the Capulets and the Montagues make several mistakes, but there is one person most responsible. Juliet 's father, Lord Capulet, is most to blame for the events that occurred and for his daughter 's death. Romeo would have never met Juliet if Lord Capulet had kicked him out of the party. In scene 5 of act 1 Tybalt recognized Romeo and instead of dueling him, Lord Capulet said to leave Romeo alone. Even if Lord Capulet thought that Romeo was not going to cause any problems he should have still kicked Romeo out, because he was not invited.
Romeo is a Montague, the rival family to the Capulets. The hatred that would lead to his own death started with this grudge. Romeo didn’t do anything to hurt the Capulets, but Tybalt didn’t like his presence. Tybalt got angry at a party over nothing. Tybalt sent a letter to Romeo’s home challenging him to quarrel.
Paris offers to marry Juliet and her dad finally chooses himself that she will and sets a date. Juliet is in love with Romeo and does not agree to marry Paris. She is furious with her father, but her father is furious that she is in love with a Montague. Juliet shouts, “Now, by Saint Peter’s Church and Peter too, / He shall not make me there a joyful bride.” (3.5.116-117). In this quote, Juliet had just figured out that her father had planned her to marry Paris without her consent and she is not happy about it.
In chapter seven in the Outsiders Ponyboy talks to Randy about how the Socs and Greasers hate each other and in the end, Ponyboy made Randy feel better of himself. With all that Ponyboy experienced, he knows that everyone has some potential for being good and that Randy would have saved the kids in the church too. Randy mentions that the world hates him, but Ponyboy says that he hates the world and he needs to change that. In the talk with Randy Ponyboy says “So it doesn’t do any good, the fighting and the killing. It doesn’t prove anything.” Beforehand Ponyboy talks about how he is sick of fighting and that fighting won’t make anyone win, this is further proven by the fact that nothing changed after the rumble.
“On it, I will consecrate myself, in life or death, to the happiness of my cousin” (Shelley, 187-188). Because of Caroline’s death, Victor does not feel a maternal figure is important, thus being the reason for Victor’s ignorance of Elizabeth after marriage, and while creating the monster on his own. Victor’s father was around most of Victor’s life, yet he did not support Victor. When Victor fell ill, his father did not visit him to take care of him. Clerval attends to Victor when he is sick, breaking gender norms by playing nurse.
Romeo went to get a glimpse of love, not with the intentions to start trouble. In the first act, Benvolio was trying to make peace between the servants, and then Tybalt joined in and made it a brawl because he automatically assumed the worst. Both Capulet and Montague are ultimately responsible in the death of Mercutio because they, themselves, held the power to instill peace within the ranks and with their families. How many people had to fight and die because two men refused to put the good of the realm first? While they were able to make peace after the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, it took the tragic loss of important lives for them to finally burry the
“What, drawn and talk of peace? I hate the word, as I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.” Act 1 scene 1. Tybalt was always going to defend his family, and he always wanted to find a fight with a Montague. The party held by the Capulets had Romeo in attendance, which was questionable to Tybalt because he was a Montague. He was there because he was trying to get over Rosaline, which didn’t love him back.
Due to Oedipus being an over ambitious individual, he is also an over emotional and irrational human being. He leaves his children fatherless, as he chooses to be exiled. A protagonist willing to take his own life to support his cause was also evident in Truancy, by the acts of Zyid. Zyid laying on the ground battered says, “[Tack] will take my place,’ Zyid said…[im] dying but I believe death is not unlike a long nap and I’ve not had enough sleep lately” (Fukui 426). Zyid thinks that Tack can replace him as the leader of the truants, and to fight for his and every students cause.
Juliet, Lady and Lord Capulet’s only daughter needs to get married based on the parents deadline. Juliet being younger than fourteen years old was unexceriend in the real world and not getting what she deserves. Paris shows up to Capulet asking for Juliet’s hand in marriage, yet Capulet believes that they think it should be Juliet’s own decision. Capulet throws a feast with the beautiful ladies that live in Verona to show Paris he really does not love Juliet. Meanwhile on the streets Romeo Montague was depressed over Rosaline, because she wants to stay a virgin and not have children.
(Shakespeare 394) This impulsive decision opens a floodgate to a myriad of foolish decisions. Such as later in the play, after spending the night proclaiming his undying love for Juliet, Romeo comes to the friar looking to have him perform the ceremony to marry Romeo and Juliet. This decision was made without any regard to Juliet or her feelings as well as without the blessing of the parents of either lover. No one was told about this. But still, Romeo urges the friar who is surprised and hesitant: Romeo.
