Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill.”(3.1) It is the prince saying that romeo will be exiled for killing tybalt but not killed for avenging his cousin. Tybalt is the cause that Romeo was sent away. Tybalt is also the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because Juliet is then forced to marry paris so she pretends to be dead. The nurse says(unknowingly that she’s faking it)”She’s dead, deceased, she’s dead. Alack the day!”(4.5.)
Since Romeo didn’t think about his actions, he accidentally killed Tybalt. Now, his future is in debt because he killed Juliet’s cousin and made the relationship with the Capulets worse. Lastly, when Romeo first hears of Juliet’s death, he impetuously went and killed himself. If he had thought about his actions and stayed calm for a little longer, he would’ve received the letter Friar Lawrence, telling him about the situation. For not thinking about his decisions, Romeo’s life has now fallen
My wife! Death, that hath sucked the honey of thy breath, Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty” (Shakespeare 223). This is an example of Romeo believing that Juliet is dead. But before Romeo came to the Capulet’s tomb he had a plan that if she was dead that he would kill himself, so Romeo went to a poor apothecary and bought poison. Which leads to the resolution of the
Then in the end, Mercutio and Tybalt would still be alive. Some may say that it was Romeo's fault for showing up at the party and he was the cause of his own death but if lord Capulet simply told Tybalt to not fight at all, then they would be alive. Lord Capulet pressured Juliet into marrying Paris which created a domino effect with bad things. Lord Capulet is the most to blame for most of the deaths when he pressured Juliet into marriage, continued on the feud, and doing nothing to stop Tybalt from killing Romeo. Do you think that Lord Capulet is the most to
Friar had a plan to help Juliet meet Romeo that she was to pretend to be dead with a potion and send a message to Romeo. This plan came to a demise with Romeo not getting the message and reaching Juliet supposed corpse, and then he killed himself. Friar Lawrence knew about the end result and what could have come if this plan was to fail, which it had a high spchance in doing so. He said “Like death, when he shuts up the day of life; Each part, deprived of supple government, Shall, stiff and stark and cold, appear like
Romeo made arrangements to marry Juliet the next day he then tells Friar Laurence , “That one short minute gives me in her sight. Do thou but close our hands with holy words, Then love-devouring death do what he dare-”, the friar had warned them on what would happen and the consequences to it but they didn’t seem to care as much because they were in deep “love” with one another. Juliet had drank a poison to put her in a death like sleep. Romeo was told that she was dead and he wanted to die next to her, he buys a poison to kill himself. He didn’t hurt anyone but himself at that point.
Romeo believes this and drinks poison to be with her.Juliet wakes to find Romeo dead and kills herself with his dagger. We see what can happen in all of these situations. Arranged marriages by parents shouldn’t be allowed because it increases the risk of suicide, it determines if a person must move back to the country where their parents live, and it causes depression in
Romeo avenges Mercutio’s death by killing Tybalt, which led to Romeo being exiled to Mantua. Romeo’s banishment created a flawed plan, nevertheless Mercutio was the root of Romeo’s banishment. It might seem that Friar Laurence was most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death. It’s true that Friar Laurence was the one who secretly married Juliet to Romeo resulting in Juliet having to take a potion that put her to sleep for 48 hours in order to avoid marriage to Paris. Nevertheless, Mercutio compelled Romeo to be a guest at the Capulet’s party where he met Juliet and their risky relationship started.
So the friar gave her a potion that would fake her death, and she’d be asleep for two days. He’d tell Romeo that she is faking and they would meet and run away. But Romeo never got the letter, but he did get news that she was “dead”. So he ran there and killed himself, when Juliet woke up to find Romeo dead she really killed herself. So if the feud wasn’t there then Tybalt wouldn’t have died, Romeo wouldn’t have been banished, and Juliet would never had to go to the friar.
But he was not even capable of doing that! In act 5 scene 2 Friar John says “My speed to Mantua there stayed” (5.2, 12). This quote is stating is that Friar Lawrence entrusted the letter in someone who not capable of completing the task. This results in Romeo being ill informed and killing himself because he thinks Juliet is dead. As a repercussion of Romeo’s suicide, Juliet kills herself in vain of her lost lover.
The last reason why Romeo was super lame for was because when he was at the monument he killed Paris without knowing that it was him.some evidence I found was when Paris said, “O, lamb slain (falls) if thou be merciful, open the tomb lay me with lady Juliet.” I also found some other evidence when Romeo said, “In faith I will, let me peruse this face… Mercutio 's kinsman, noble county paris. Another reason of why Romeo was so blame for was when he said, “Ha banishment? Be merciful say “death” for exile hath more terror in his look, much more than death. Do not say “banishment” he said this when Friar Laurence told him that he was banished from Verona for killing Tybalt in a sword fight and for killing county Paris. All in all these are some reasons for why to blame Romeo in the play Romeo and Juliet.
