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.
Within the Play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare there is a power thirsty, quick-tempered, and a hot-headed character named Tybalt who despises Montagues. Tybalt’s personality and motivation of violence and greed for power can be inferred by his use of figurative language. When Tybalt encountered Benvolio who came between the fight of the servants of Montague and Capulet, he shouts, "What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word, As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee: Have at thee coward." Tybalt expresses his hate about peace by comparing it to Benvolio, Montagues, and hell. The figure of speech Tybalt uses is a simile. This reveals that Tybalt is hot-headed. All he saw was a Montague trying to make peace and his temper suddenly
Romeo and Juliet is a well-known play written by William Shakespeare. Even though it is famous for being a love story, Shakespeare demonstrates that rebellion is closely tied together either it through the characters: Juliet, Romeo and Tybalt. By defying their families, authority and society's expectations, they set in motion the events in this tragedy.

From what I have read in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare it is about two young teenagers falling in love together. The two main characters that I have chosen to write about would be Romeo and Paris. These two characters have similarities and differences between each other, some similarities that they have are Romeo and Paris both like Juliet. They are both trying to marry her because they both like and love her. As far as the community of Verona is concerned they are very caring and respectful people.
In beautiful Verona, where our story takes place...A longstanding hatred between two families, Montague and Capulet, two unlucky children of their enemy families become lovers...and take their own lives. (prologue page 2) From Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. In Verona lays Juliet, a young lady age of 13, who is daughter of Lord and Lady Capulet. She is secretly married to Romeo, house of Montague and son of Lord and Lady Montague. By help of Friar Lawrence, a peaceful priest. The Montague and Capulet family are in an ancient family feud, but no one knows their children are both married to each other. The family of Juliet pressures her to marry Paris, a kinsman to the prince. They do not realize Juliet is in love with their enemy Romeo,
The scene begins with Benvolio and Mercutio talking. Bevolio is trying to persuade Mercutio to leave because, if the Capulets are around, there would be trouble I pray thee good Mercutio let's retire. Benvolio is used by Shakespeare as a peacemaker, he will not argue or upst anybody andwill not side with anyone as he is neither Caulet or Montague, he is, hever, Romeo's friend. When Tybalt enters, he is very confident and obviously thought greatly of himself. He was looking for Romeo whom he wants to fight. Mercutio was teasing Tybalt because of his name, Tibaltwas a cat in an old story so he calls Tybalt a rat-catcher and king of cats Later, whenRomeo appears, he doesn't wnt to fight because
In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet,Romeo and Juliet were two very similar people by the way they acted to even the way their families acted. They both get treated the same way by their parents, they both were not honest, and even their families acted the same way.
Our ruling is that County Paris is responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. In the book Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet were lovers of two houses that had a fued. The two married behind their families backs. Many people think the deaths were from many people but forget about one person. Paris is the cause of the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because, he got into Capulets head, the fact he was going to marry Juliet, and the marriage cause Juliet to drink the potion.
Lord Capulet and Lady Capulet want Juliet to get married soon, and with Romeo gone; they arrange Juliet to marry Paris in a few days. Juliet’s parents do not know that she has just recently gotten married to Romeo before he was banished, so that creates some problems with Juliet being forced to marry Paris. Juliet goes to Friar Laurence for advice on her situation because she has no one else to go to for guidance. Friar Laurence gives Juliet a potion to make her seem like she is dead for two days, but she is just in a comma. Juliet is unsure about this plan. She thinks what if the poison kills her or does not work at all? What if she wakes up and Romeo will not be there to save her? Finally, Juliet drinks the potion and goes to bed that same
When the Prince asks for what occurred after Romeo had killed Tybalt, Benvolio spoke nothing but the truth saying, “Tybalt, here slain, whom Romeo's hand did slay. Romeo,that spoke him fair,bade him bethink how nice the quarrel was, and urged withal Your high displeasure. All this utterèd With gentle breath, calm look, knees humbly [...] This is the truth, or let Benvolio die.(3.1.161-180)” Of all the courageous actions Benvolio took, telling the truth is what influences Benvolio’s courage the most. He chose to tell the whole truth, knowing that there would be consequences taken against his cousin. This shows true courage and commitment to his cause for peace. Benvolio’s honesty is what makes him one of the most courageous characters of the play.

Shakespeare wrote Romeo and Juliet in year 1595. Disney made the animated film, Gnomeo and Juliet, in 2011. Gnomeo & Juliet is a computer-animated, comedic recreation of Shakespeares masterpiece. In sed movie, all of the human characters are replaced by lawn decorations. There are 3 major differences and 3 major similarities between the two.
Romeo a kind, noble sir. Romeo is a character that is more realistic to today's audience. Romeo shows heroism and compassion all through the play. The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, is supposed to be a tragedy it shows how love was won, but by hurt and sadness that was done.Romeo shows his love for Juliet in many special and heroic ways throughout the story. Even though the struggles, trial, and tribulation they face, Romeo still stays true with Juliet in more ways than one and most people today still do they same with the one they love. The character of Romeo in The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is the most realistic character because people today can relate to the way he speaks and the things he says and does to Juliet.
Throughout the history of Shakespearen literature, Shakespeare tends to develop the characters in to a way that complements the story. For an example, in Macbeth, he shows the digression of the main character by an internal conflict residing from a mental condition, if he did not explain every detail of his thought process then the story would be bland and not a literature masterpiece. Another key example is the story of Romeo and Juliet, even though it is a romantic piece, he still assigns different personality traits to each character. Which makes them a key asset to how the story concludes and the theme the reader is left to discover. One of the biggest colliding character interactions is Benvolio and Tybalt. While only being “role” characters they find themselves being a huge part of the success of the story’s plot. Benvolio is a unsuccessful peace maker that relentlessly tries to inflict his moralistic diplomacy on the other characters, just to be ignored. While his counterpart, Tybalt is the complete opposite of him and tends to be the problem starter, and tries to manipulate the other character in to doing what he thinks is correct. I believe they are in this story to show the internal conflict that every man/woman is dealt with on a regular day basis. As a majority, we tend to go with our irrational side (Tybalt) then to go to our rational side (Benvolio) when put in a circumstance.
