“From ancient grudge break to new mutiny” (Shakespeare 992). With this statement Shakespeare makes it quite clear who is responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. The feud between the Montagues and Capulets and their bad parenting are the reasons why Romeo and Juliet ended up dead; however, some people still believe that the Friar is responsible. To start off, the families’ feud is responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. First, the main reason why Romeo and Juliet are scared to be together is because they know that their families hate each other.
The emotional aftermath of carrying out an immoral deed is a contributing factor to why retribution should be left up to justice or a higher power. Laertes is an additional great example of vendetta over the loss of a loved one. He loses both his sister AND his father to Hamlet’s rampage which expectedly infuriates him. “And so I have a father lost; and a sister driven to desperate terms… but my revenge will come.”. Laertes comes home to the destruction of his family and immediately begins plotting with Claudius to kill Hamlet.
While Hamlet is full of self-doubt and conflicting emotions, Laertes is quick to attempt to avenge his father. Laertes immediately jumps to the conclusion that King Claudius is the murderer of his father and he seeks vengeance. He is willing to storm into the Demark court – without thinking – and tell King Claudius that, “only I’ll be revenged most thoroughly for my father” (4.5.132-133). In contrast to Laertes’ sudden actions, Hamlet ponders the chance to kill the man responsible for his father’s death. Even when Claudius is alone and the option is available, Hamlet fails
In fact, the general shows the remorse of his conscience when he imagines the king 's chamberlains accuse him of murdering Duncan. He is aware that he will never be able to live in peace and he feels that it is terrible to live like this. However, Lady. Macbeth suggests him to pay no attention to his feeling of regret or, if not, he will go completely crazy. This turns out to be a clear omen of what would happen to them soon
Placing the Blame The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet truly becomes a tragedy once Mercutio, Romeo’s close friend, is killed by the hand of Tybalt. Multiple claims could be made regarding who is responsible for Mercutio’s death, but he himself is ultimately to blame. Once Tybalt approaches him, Mercutio begins to instigate. The heat at the time of this scene was hardly bearable, making matters worse as Mercutio quickly becomes irritable. He made insulting comments and aggravating remarks, pushing Tybalt to the point of fighting.
Hamlet is more likely insane because of the action he has done and what he is going to do. He killed Polonius and slipped some crazy words during the play, So I think that Hamlet is not crazy for acting it, But crazy for been insane. Hamlet does like Ophelia. The moment that he sees her brother on the grave he starts attacking and saying that he loves Ophelia.Hamlet himself, in the play by William Shakespeare, seems to be asking himself the same question in his speech about whether it is nobler in the mind "to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" or to get out there, do something about it and exorcize any crazy ill effects of the injustice by wreaking revenge. Even today many therapists recommend that we do not internalize or
His obsession also leads to uncertainty and he ends up killing those around him. Specifically, his uncertainty is shown when he is given the opportunity to kill his uncle, but he ends up postponing his revenge because he believes that Claudius is praying. Although one might argue that a character’s obsession may lead to happiness, an analysis of Prince Hamlet in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and Guy Montag in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, depicts the theme of uncertainty when a character leads to downfall due to their
Romeo displays irresponsibility as exemplified in his decision to kill Tybalt in a fit of anger and to commit suicide in the name of love. Of the many poor decisions Romeo makes, and one of the most pivotal, in the play is when he kills Tybalt in a fit of anger. The article “Romeo and Juliet” in the Gale Virtual Reference Library puts what happens between Romeo and Tybalt in words perfectly when they state, “Killing Tybalt is a rash act that needed not have happened if Romeo had been better able to control himself. Instead, Romeo succumbs to an irrational and violent reaction and then feels sorry for himself as "fortune's fool" who has been pushed by fate into committing the terrible deed” (Hacht). Although Tybalt kills one of Romeo’s closest friends, it is rash of him to respond to the murder by committing another murder.
“What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the/ word as I hate hell, all Montagues and thee, coward!” (I.i.ll.72-74). Tybalt does not realize that fighting over a simple disagreement is completely unnecessary yet since he is so hot-tempered believes that he is above everyone else. Even Capulet doesn’t fight as much as Tybalt. Later in the play after causing a fight with Romeo, Mercutio steps forward and Tybalt kills him.
