William Shakespeare 's play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, is about two star-crossed lovers who end their lives because of their love for one another. Romeo is a Montagues and Juliet is a Capulet, therefore these two can 't be together because they come from rivalling families. At the end of the play, the Prince says: “Some shall be pardon’d , and some punished”(V.III.307). The people who should be punished for the death of Romeo and Juliet are: Lord Capulet and Friar Laurence, and the person who should be pardoned is the Nurse. Juliet’s parents, especially Lord Capulet, should be punished for the death of Romeo and Juliet.
If certain characters had thought or acted differently at certain points of the play, could the Star-Crossed lover’s deaths been prevented? In the play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Lord Capulet and Friar Laurence are the individuals responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet. The tragedy is about two young adults that fall in love, which ultimately leads to their doom. Their deaths cause the altercation between Lord Capulet and Lord Montague to end. Throughout this wild plot, Lord Capulet and Friar Laurence’s actions are to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death.
For example in the conflict of Romeo and Juliet revenge is shown by Romeo and leads to discomfort for himself. “Thou,wretched boy, that didst consort him here, shalt with him hence,” (Tybalt Act 3,Scene 1,Line 127) “This shall determine that”(Romeo Act 3,Scene 1, Line 129) These two quotes from Romeo and Juliet show how Romeo seeks revenge on Tybalt for Mercutio’s death. This then hurts the innocent because, people from Romeo’s family are sad that he is banished and the Capulets are sad because Tybalt is deceased. In the movie West Side Story,Anita goes to the restaurant to find Tony and give him news but, the Sharks are at the restaurant and are violent. In this
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. Lord Capulet should have been suspicious of how Romeo discovered the party. He wanted to avoid making a scene at his party, but he just had to go up and ask him to leave, fighting was not the only way to get rid of Romeo. Juliet 's father 's second biggest mistake was pressuring Juliet into marrying Paris. At first he wanted Paris to woo her, but after Tybalt was killed he wanted to rush her into marrying Paris to cheer her up.
Juliet having to marry Paris was what inspired the plan that led to Romeo and Juliet's untimely demise. In this instance Shakespeare uses dramatic irony to drive the plot forward. If the characters in the play were aware of the marriage then they would get mad, and many of the things that led to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t have happened, including the Friar's plan to have Juliet fake
In this case, both love & hate are shown. After hearing that Romeo has slain Tybalt & will be banished, Juliet cries for a long while about Romeo’s banishment, telling her parents it is due to Tybalt’s death. Her parents, feeling they need to do something to stop her endless weeping, set up a second marriage for her (not knowing about the first one) to the county Paris. When Lord Capulet tells her of this, instead of having his expected reaction, she refuses. Her father becomes enraged with her & begins to hate her actions, and tells her she will not be a part of the Capulet family anymore unless she accepts.
Although there were many people to blame in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Lord Capulet’s harsh decision for Juliet about her marriage makes her feel very desperate for a solution. Juliet then goes to Friar Lawrence for a plan, which resulted in her death. Therefore Friar Lawrence is to blame. One of the factors to their deaths is Father Capulet forcing Juliet to marry Paris and making harsh statements. “Hang thee, young baggage!
I think that Juliet’s parents were a big part of it because they wouldn’t let Romeo and Juliet be together and they were going to force her to marry Paris. They didn’t give her the freedom to grow old with the man she loves. Juliet became upset and had decided to take matters into her own hands and talk to Friar so she could be with Romeo. They had threatened to have her kicked out of the
Romeo and Juliet, is a love story that was interfered by hate. The Capulets and Montagues were bitter enemies. However, the son and daughter from the patriarchies of both families did not hate each other, but instead fell in love. They decided to keep their love a secret because Juliet would be disowned if she didn’t marry a handpicked man from Lord Capulet. The rivalry and disgust between the two families was responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet because it made them lie.
In act 3 scene 5 Lord Capulet tells Juliet that she has to marry Paris or else she will be disowned and he is not very nice about it either; while he is telling Juliet what will happen if she doesn’t Marry Paris he says, “hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, For, by my soul, I'll ne'er acknowledge thee”. This hurts Juliet very much. Lord Capulet was forcing Juliet to marry Paris so soon she didn’t even have time to think of anything else she could do. This is putting Juliet in a stressful situation because she is already married to Romeo, but now her father will disown her if she doesn't marry Paris. She then make a rash decision because she doesn't know what to
