The death of Romeo and Juliet in william shakespeare’s play are both hate and love. Although much could have been done to prevent their suicides, these “star-crossed lovers” ultimately are not able to avoid their destiny. A series of unfortunate circumstances result in disaster, and even though many people could blame for their death, Lady Capulet, Friar Laurence 's, and Capulet play a particularly integral role. While some believe that juliet is responsible for Romeo and Juliet death, this is not the case. Upon further investigation Lady Capulet should receive the blame.
In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, through the first three acts, Mercutio is the most important character because he participates in all of the major parts of the play. To illustrate, Mercutio is involved in a very pivotal scene where Tybalt is being arrogant and trying to get into fights with the Montagues. Mercutio antagonistically says to Tybalt, “And but one word with one of us? Couple it with / something; make it a word and a blow” leading to a Tybalt and Mercutio fight that Tybalt ultimately wins in the end (3.1.35-36). Romeo fights for Mercutios honor and ends up killing Tybalt.
In scene 1 of Act 3, when Tybalt challenges Romeo, Mercutio responds by trying to get Tybalt to fight him instead of fighting Romeo(3.1.70-79), proving that he is such a good friend that he is willing to put his life on the line. This scene is essential to the story because it results in Mercutio dying and Romeo getting banished. If this scene didn’t occur, then Romeo would not have been banished and would have gotten the message that Juliet was faking her death. Similarly, on page three of The Ethiopss Ear, it talks about how Mercutio and Romeo had such a strong friendship that they could have been lovers, and also about how much Mercutio cared about Romeo, causing him to fight Tybalt. This helps us understand just how strong of a friendship Romeo and Mercutio had in the play, given that they could have been lovers if not for Juliet.
Mercutio, on the other hand, wanted to stay to prove his courageousness around the rival family. They remained for the Capulet’s arrival. Romeo arrived soon after that. To Tybalt 's surprise, Romeo would not contest against him. Instead, Romeo told Tybalt that he loved him.
Who was at fault for the death of Mercutio? “The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet” written by William Shakespeare, is one of the most influential works created by William Shakespeare in which the two main characters, Romeo and Juliet, are two star crossed lovers destined to fall in love, but fated to take that love to the grave as both of them end up killing themselves believing they could no longer be with the other. In this tragedy a character by the name of Mercutio is introduced in act l,scene iv where he is shown to be a good friend of Romeo and quite the humorous character. But this friendship with Romeo is what would ultimately lead to his untimely demise, as it is clear Romeo is the one who is to blame for Mercutio's death.
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.
Romeo is to blame for Mercutio’s death in Act III of Romeo and Juliet. First of all, Romeo did not fight back when Tybalt insulted him. Tybalt calls Romeo a villain and other various names, but Romeo responds by saying (paraphrase), “I love you more than you believe for we are family, even if you are oblivious to this fact. I love the name Capulet as much as I love my own name”(3.1.72-75). When Romeo says this, Tybalt becomes confused and enraged.

Mercutio is making light of Romeo’s deep depressing love for Rosaline, he’s mocking love and making it a joke. This creates an emphasis on Romeo’s utter affixation with love. Mercutio’s playfulness and ability to make a serious subject humorous and reasonable bring out the deep, dark, and depressing side of Romeo, who is completely the opposite when it comes to love. Romeo does not see love as a joke and we see him fall into a depression, Mercutio only makes this sadness more apparent as he talks so jokingly of love. Shakespeare uses Mercutio to lighten Romeo’s depression and make it more
In the play Romeo and Juliet one of the main characters, Romeo, is a rather impulsive fellow who acts on what he sees and feels.

Romeo’s impulsive decisions causes his love, Juliet, to ultimately get killed.
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves”, is a quote by the man himself, William Shakespeare, concerning human responsibility, otherwise known as the capability of completing an obligation, or duty sufficiently. These commitments or duties play a role in how a situation will play out, and dictate the consequences that follow. The choices made from the beginning to the end in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet are all examples of how people’s decisions, primarily those of Tybalt, Mercutio and Friar Lawrence, lead to a heartbreaking fallout. The pressure and burden weighing down the young lovers ultimately overwhelms them, causing an expeditious chain reaction. The influences behind each character’s ill-considered judgments,
Mercutio is different from Romeo because he does not believe in love and makes fun of Romeo and falling in love so heavily all the time. When Romeo describes his love for Rosaline using a rose with thorns as a metaphor. Mercutio laughs and says ”If love be rough with you, be rough with love; Prick love for pricking and you beat love down”(I.4.27-28). In another scenario of Romeo and Mercutio’s foils is when Romeo tells his friends about a dream he had about the party and is expecting a disastrous outcome of the party. Mercutio makes fun of Romeo because he does not believe that dreams can become visions of impending danger.
