Poison and Daggers; A Deathly Love Which people should take the responsibility for the tragic deaths of the “star-crossed lovers”? Almost everyone in this tale has either played a little or a major part in their demise, but there are a few people that have a greater role in the fate of Romeo and Juliet. The bulk of the blame is pushed onto Romeo and Juliet themselves, as well as Friar Laurence. The first person that takes some of the burden for the deaths is Romeo because of his rashness to fall in love and his impatience. His first fault was going to the party to see Rosaline, which was where he meet Juliet.
Hamlet feels betrayed by his mother and feels like he can 't trust anyone. Shakespeare gives Hamlet these struggles in the play to amplify the mental and psychological events that make the reader feel bad about what all happened to Hamlet. Hamlet eventually kills Claudius like his father told him to, but only did it after his mother, Gertrude, drank the poison that Claudius meant to give Hamlet. This is a result of external action from all the sorrows that was building up in Hamlet’s life. This brings us to our next character, Gertrude, Claudius’s wife and Hamlets
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to talk to someone but you couldn 't due to problems in the past? If you can relate to this, I would recommend reading Romeo and Juliet. In the story Romeo and Juliet, Lord and Lady Montague and Lord and Lady Capulet are ultimately at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Due to lord and lady capulet and montague continuing their everlasting feud, romeo and juliet both ended up committing suicide. Both romeo and juliet believed that they could not live without one another so when romeo mistakenly thought juliet died, he killed himself which led to the death of juliet.
Little does Romeo know she is about to wake up due to the sleeping potions 48-hour time limit. But before she wakes, Romeo makes the bold, braving decision to be with her and drinks poison laying next to her while dying. This is the end of Romeo, but as he died Juliet wakes up and is horrified to see Paris and Romeo both dead. She takes Romeo's dagger and says “My body will be your sheath” (Act 5 Line 186), soon after she stabbed herself and died next to Romeo. All of these different kinds of love lead to the death or 13-years-old Juliet and 18-year-old Romeo.
Although, if the consumer 's life is dominated with an evil influence that person will die no matter how they use it. This relates to Romeo and Juliet’s love, which symbolizes the good, while the feud between their families symbolizes the dominating evil. This expresses a tone of tragedy because it foreshadows the sorrow of Romeo and Juliet’s untimely and unnecessary deaths due to the feud. Another example is when Juliet is about to drink the sleeping potion administered to her by the Friar. This potion will feign her death for forty two hours by putting her in a cold, death like, deep sleep.
"4.1.68-69 Juliet was putting pressure on Friar to of give her a solution for the horrible situation she was in. Friar probably felt that he had to think quickly to help Juliet, so the solution he gave her was very radical and didn't even promise to work perfectly, and surely enough it didn’t. The Friar made a very ignorant decision when he decided to give a 13 year old girl a potion that was powerful enough to put her in such a deep sleep it will fooled everyone around her into thinking she was dead. Even Juliet had multiple fears before she drank the potion. She feared that she would of woken up too soon before Romeo could of gotten to her, and that she would of woken up and suffocated.
Responsibility and tragedy seem like two ideas that do not fit together. The play, Romeo and Juliet breaks that stereotypical thinking. Two star-crossed lovers who mistakenly and tragically take their own lives, and someone is responsible for their ends. Friar Lawrence is most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death because he is the one who marries them “in secret,” and he also poorly executed their plan to escape to Mantua, where Romeo had been exiled to. Friar Lawrence is most responsible because he is the one who marries Romeo and Juliet.
Romeo and Juliet was made by Shakespeare he wrote in between 1594-1595. Romeo and Juliet was written about two lovers who are not supposed to be in love there family feud was a domestic conflict. Romeo and Juliet was still passionate to get married although they did get married Romeo by the help of Juliet nurse and the preacher but romeo end up killing Juliet cousin Tybalt after he killed Romeo best friend Mercutio. The cops where after Romeo they wanted to kill him so he left and head out his preacher Frair was giving him notes form him and Juliet.

Macbeth and the biblical story of Ahab are similar in the way that two Nobel men, Macbeth and Ahab, allowed their sinful desires of land and power to rapidly lead them to take the life of someone else. Though Macbeth and Ahab were guilty, Lady Macbeth and Jezebel were equally responsible for the deaths of innocent people. They tempted their husbands to commit murder when they believed that was the only thing that would fulfill their husbands desires. Unfortunately, we saw that the result of both of these stories ended with terrible consequences. For most of the characters in these stories the result was their own lives.
This kind of love might be destructive. The youths might make wrong decisions due to perceived feelings that might result to damaging repercussions. In the play, the decision to marry each other secretly was perilous since it influenced Romeo to kill Paris at the end. He also committed suicide when he realized that Juliet was dead. In the modern society, different individuals might commit offences with the intent of protecting their loved ones.
Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her. The friar 's inability to succesfully delivering the letter to Romeo stating that Juliet was alive was a gap that caused romeo to make his harsh decision, but it was too late once he got to the tomb. Upon killing Paris and himself with the poison, Romeo fell beside Juliet, whom stabbed herself once she awoke upon seeing Romeo dead before her eyes. Had Romeo and Juliet respected their families wishes, had they not gone into secrecy, had their relatives stayed out of their love, they wouldnt have blindly caused
Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison. Later in the tragedy, Romeo sees Juliet dead in the mausoleum, and decides to express his love for her, then drink the poison. Once Juliet awakes from her deep sleep and sees Romeo dead, she takes her own life with a dagger. Both Juliet and Romeo’s tragic downfall could have been avoided if Romeo thought about the consequences before he murdered Tybalt. Romeo’s rash behaviors in Romeo and Juliet resulted in many negative consequences, and he consistently acted impetuously that impacted others in an unnecessary way.
Another significant grudge that Lord Capulet held was against the Montagues, this meant that Romeo and Juliet had to be together in secret, this would end up leading to both of their deaths. “Two households, both alike in dignity, IN fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes. A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life; whose misadventur’d piteous overthrows. Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife?
