William Shakespeare’s play “Romeo and Juliet” is a tragic one as love lead to the deaths of both young lovers. Yet there is still a question that remains in this story Who was responsible for the six deaths in the play Romeo and Juliet. Most of the blame for the six deaths in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare rests on both the Montague and Capulet families.
Who is to blame for the tragic outcome of Romeo and Juliet? Have you ever asked yourself, who is the cause? Who’s fault is it, for all the blood that was shed? Who is liable for the dead that fell throughout William Shakespeare's famous play Romeo and Juliet? Who is to blame for these two star cross’d lovers death? Many times has this question been asked, but what is the answer? Through this play there are three turning points that made this play take a swivel for the worst. They could be well represented as strikes. Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because he caused the families to get their first strike, started the second fight, and by killing Mercutio made Romeo anger, so Romeo killed Tybalt therefore getting himself banned and causing the events that follow.
Tybalt is hot headed and rash. In the first act of Romeo and Juliet he is already starting fights as stated by him “What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word / As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.”(1.1.63-64). Tybalt’s hate of peace is the most blatant example of his hot headed and rash actions. He is trying to get the Montagues riled up so that he can have a fight. The second example is when Romeo sneaks into the ball Tybalt says this on finding Romeo “This by his voice, should be a Montague. / Fetch me my rapier, boy.” (1.5.52-53). Tybalt again upon finding a Montague instantly starts instigating a fight. Once again showing his rashness of decision. Finally when Tybalt decides to settle his score with Romeo after the ball Tybalt
Feuds can be very deadly, in the play ¨Romeo and Juliet¨ by William Shakespeare. The feud is to blame for the many deaths in the play and why Romeo and Juliet had to secretly get married. The feud is to blame for the many deaths because if there wasn´t a feud the lovers wouldn´t have to get married in secret. A second reason is if there wasn´t a feud Romeo´s best friend didn´t have to die, Tybalt didn´t have to die, Romeo and Juliet didn´t have to die.
The downfalls of Romeo and Juliet are caused by bad luck and bad decisions. Since they’ve been alive and aware, the capulets and montagues have been at “war”. Page 14, Romeo and Tybalt bicker away at each other. Tybalt even hits Romeo with a third person indirect. “Uncle that’s a montague, our foe.” They obviously have a hateful vengeance for each other, if they can’t be in public for a little bit without wanting to kill one another.
There are a lot of people who are to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death but the most obvious one is Tybalt. Tybalt was lady Capulet’s nephew and Juliet’s cousin. Tybalt was also a troublemaker and hated the Montagues. To support that, “What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word as I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee. Have at thee, coward!” (1.1.70-72), is a quote said by Tybalt before everyone started fighting. Tybalt was called the “Prince of cats” by Mercutio because Tybalt was very hot-tempered and quarrelsome. The first reason is that Tybalt is to blame is that he killed Mercutio and was killed by Romeo. The second reason is that Romeo was banished because he killed Tybalt. The third reason is that Juliet would have never faked her death if Romeo was never banished.
“Be patient and understanding. Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious.” (Phillips Brooks) Many avoidable tragedies and deaths take place in Shakespeare's “Romeo and Juliet” due to people’s inability to comprehend the effects their actions have on others. This the play starts with a fight scene between the Montagues and Capulets in which both parties are guilty of pride and vengeance. Had they considered the long term consequences of their actions or the fact that their behavior at the moment did nothing to resolve the issue at hand, things may have ended differently. The theme Shakespeare tries to portray in of Romeo and Juliet is not to allow your actions to be influenced by your
Romeo’s rebellion against society's expectations and his own family, the Montagues, is because of his love. His love of Rosaline is his first demonstration of defiance. This goes against the family feud as Montagues and Capulets are supposed to hate each other. His love of Rosaline motivates him to trespass on Capulet property where he meets his next love, Juliet Capulet. Even though he is

¨Bullying is a national epidemic” (Macklemore) bullying has always been a problem but no one seems to try and stop it. In the novel Shattering Glass and the play Romeo and Juliet the evolution of bullying can be seen, but yet no one had tried to stop it in either of the books. In the play Romeo and Juliet the families bully each other around until eventually their own kids take their lives, because they could not be together due to the feud. In the book Shattering Glass by Gail Giles the characters touch a little bit on cyberbullying, but mainly they verbally and physically abuse people in the story to help them achieve what the characters want.
Tybalt is an insanely hateful character especially towards Romeo and his household. “Turn thee, Benvolio! Look upon thy death”. (1.1.60) This statement uttered by Tybalt is a threat to benvolio one of Romeo’s best and most trusted friends in Verona. And when you threaten someone's best friend you are hateful of them and all associates of this person. “as I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee.” (1.1.64) Tybalt
“Happiness is good, sadness is bad but together, they create a good story” These words from Luna Adriana Ardiansyah fit excellent for describing the erratic story of Romeo and Juliet. This story goes up and down with deaths, bad situations and plot twists. All these events led to different tragic events and Tybalt's death was one of them. In the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Tybalt is liable for his own death because he makes irrational decisions, he has anger issues, and he always has held a grudge against the Montagues.
In the play Romeo and Juliet hate is a major role in the story/play. The hate revolves around the hatred between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s. Hatred is shown throughout Romeo and Juliet as shown by peoples’ acts of violence. The story does not reveal why the hatred began, only that it was an ongoing conflict between the two families. The people who live in Verona are well aware of the continual conflict between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s. In William Shakespears’ Romeo and Juliet, hatred is shown to be a destructive force that causes people to make destructive decisions. Hatred takes a big part in the play showing violence between the 2 families that will make a drastic change in the play.
Vicious, violent, aggressive, cocky, and rude. All of these adjectives describe Tybalt. Adjectives like those don’t describe an innocent man. Does this sound like a man who would be innocent of a murder that he obligated? In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt is responsible for his own death because he has a history of killing, he has an attitude that instigates on problems, and he has grudges against Romeo.
The underlying theme of the play, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare was the clash between the company pursuing their personal desires or deciding to conform to what is socially expected. The circumstances of this affray were on display when Romeo presented his plot of marrying Juliet to Friar Laurence. The consequences of Romeo deciding to pursue personal desire were also on display when displayed his disapproval to his punishment for extirpating Tybalt. These instances culminate Shakespeare's idea of that the pursuit of personal desire not always rewarding the aspirant.
