Romeo does receive a reversal of fortune due to his marriage to Juliet. In 3.1.129-140, Romeo ends up killing Tybalt, which was then his cousin because he married Juliet. His rash, passionate judgement of the event that killed Mercutio lead him to believe that he should take revenge. Also, it is because of Romeo and Juliet’s secret wedding that Tybalt decided to pick a fight with Romeo without a second thought in the first place (2.4.7-13 and 3.1). If Tybalt knew that Romeo had married Juliet and was now Tybalt’s cousin, then he wouldn't have willingly started a fight.
Romeo and Juliet, one of Shakespeare's most famous plays, is often remembered as a love story gone wrong. Many people think of Romeo and Juliet that way mainly because the two protagonists are met with a dreadful death. Romeo and Juliet were “star-crossed lovers,” but their deaths could have been avoided if it weren't for their own costly mistakes and the mistakes of others. While some of the events that led to Romeo and Juliet’s death were inevitable, others could have been avoided if some of the characters made better decisions. The two characters who made the worst mistakes were Friar Laurence and Romeo.
Who is to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s Death? In the devastating romance, Romeo and Juliet shows an illustration of how young love is able to cause destruction, not only in their lives but also the people’s lives around them. It also shows how other actor’s thoughts affected the people close to them, but the main question is, who is responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet? The death of Romeo and Juliet was not their fault but Friar Lawrence's. Friar is to blame, not only for one action that contributed to their death, but for three actions.
The main reason romeo and juliet had such a bad love life, was because they were involved in the family feud. The family’s hate leads to romeo and juliet's tragic fate. In the following quote, the prince supports my statement, “capulet, montague see what scourge is laid upon your hate that heaven finds means to kill your joys with love.” ( act V scene III, lines 191-193). the prince then says that because capulet and montague have been in a feud for practically forever, it caused romeo and juliet’s, and other loved ones
The blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet in Romeo and Juliet is on Friar Lawrence. He is the cause because of the actions and decisions he made and showed through out the novel. Actions such as keeping Romeo and Juliet’s marriage in secret eventually led to both of their deaths. Another action that led to the two lover’s death is Friar Lawrence faking Juliet’s death. This action was uncalled for, a possible solution could of bin that Friar Lawrence helped Juliet escape Verona to be with his husband.
In the real world everyone makes mistakes that cannot be fixed. In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet both the Capulets and the Montagues make several mistakes, but there is one person most responsible. Juliet 's father, Lord Capulet, is most to blame for the events that occurred and for his daughter 's death. Romeo would have never met Juliet if Lord Capulet had kicked him out of the party. In scene 5 of act 1 Tybalt recognized Romeo and instead of dueling him, Lord Capulet said to leave Romeo alone.
However, many small decisions made by numerous people caused Romeo and Juliet to end tragically. To begin with, the most guilty to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet would be the family feud. At the start of the play, the audience is introduced to a long-standing feud between the houses. If Capulet and Montague had not been at war with each other Romeo and Juliet 's marriage would not have had to be done in secret. The Prince exclaims, “See what a scourge is laid upon your hate,” (Act Ⅴ, scene 3, Line 302).
Is death worth proving love? In the play Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, all Romeo and Juliet do is try to prove their love to each other. A family feud between the Capulets and the Montagues continues to trail on, making Romeo and Juliet’s love forbidden, until death ends it all. Many are at fault such as: Juliet’s nurse that acts the messenger between the two teens, or Balthazar who goes behind Lord Montague’s back to keep the secret of Romeo and Juliet’s marriage. Nonetheless one person is at most to blame and his name is Friar Lawrence.
The feud ends with numerous deaths including Romeo, Mercutio, Paris, Juliet, and Tybalt. Many of whom had nothing to do with the feud, but ended up in those situations because of the hate their parents instilled into their minds at such an early age. Of the many deaths in the play Mercutio’s was one of the most significant. His death occurred because he insisted on challenging Tybalt, who was looking for Romeo. Although his death may seem uneventful it is essential to the point that conflicts among families and friends only end tragically.
Death, tragedy, misery, love, and unity; all of these words describe the story of Romeo and Juliet, but all the tragedy in the young lovers’ lives spiraled from Tybalt and his first terrible mistake. In the play “Romeo and Juliet” written by Shakespeare, the short story is that two young lovers secretly get married, people murder in anger, the two lovers get separated, and then end their own lives in a tragic death because of no communication. But, like I said, this all revolves around a mistake Tybalt made because of the feud between the Capulets--Juliet’s family-- and the Montague--Romeo’s family. Tybalt is the character most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because he killed Mercutio, which led to Romeo 's banishment, which then led to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. In the play “Romeo and Juliet”, Tybalt is a relative to the Capulet family, and the Capulets and Montagues have a long-time running feud between their families that causes a lot of anger and revenge attacks between the two families.
These families drove these two young lovers to kill themselves because they could not be with their true love. The family feud is to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths because of the amount of hate that is shown daily in the story “ From ancient grudge break to new mutiny where civil blood makes civil hands unclean”. This hate caused Romeo and Juilet to sneak around and hide important life events like there marriage from there parents Feud was only the beginning of this tragic event . Juliet’s parents were forcing
The fact that Romeo and Juliet where each from families that hated the other guaranteed they were doomed from the second they laid eyes on each other, so here death is the fault of the parents. In a way, if the Montagues and Capulet’s could’ve just been friends, all these deaths could’ve been avoided. Therefor the deaths were the parents were the parents fault, not the Friar’s. This is not accurate, because even if the families were best friends, Lord Capulet would have still wanted Juliet to marry Paris not Romeo , and they woul have gotten in a feud
The star-crossed lovers’ deaths were unavoidable, no matter what decisions led up to them. Without a doubt, the most destruction was made by Mercutio. Mercutio was Romeo’s best friend, which led to Romeo’s underestimation transform into angry rage once Tybalt killed Mercutio. His decision to fight Tybalt put himself amid an ongoing quarrel between Romeo and Tybalt, causing tension between the Capulets and Montagues, and disconnecting Romeo from Juliet.
