After Romeo refused to fight Tybalt, Mercutio (Romeo’s best friend) came in and fought Tybalt, Tybalt then wins the fight and kills Mercutio. “This fight will decide who dies” (3.1.93). This means that Romeo and Tybalt are going to fight and that someone will have to die in this fight.
The fiery aggressive Tybalt, Juliets cousin, was still infuriated that Romeo, Benvolio and Mercutio attended the Capulets feast. Tybalt challenges Romeo to a Duel but Romeo does not want to fight, he wants peace between them, Mercutio intervenes and says that he will fight Tybalt. Romeo wants peace so as they begin to fight, Romeo intervenes but Tybalt stabs Mercutio under Romeos arm and Romeo suddenly strikes back and kills Tybalt. This is a scene where fate is questioned and whether it was of their own control. Romeo didn’t have to kill Tybalt, he acted quickly out of rage and did not think before he reacted, Romeo could have made a different choice, as he had control over himself, his thoughts and feelings his own decisions.
There were many reasons for the tragedy in the shakespearean play Othello. But the biggest reason was the brilliant, cunning, sneaky, manipulative mastermind Iago. Because he had all of these qualities and his relentlessness to fulfill his goal to destroy othello he is the only person at fault. Iago is the only person at fault for what had happened to othello, desdemona, emilia, and roderigo (also cassio but he ended up getting a better life after all of this was done). The reason iago did what he did was because othello promised him a job as lieutenant in the venetian army and then went back on his promise to hire Cassio as lieutenant who not only was not a soldier he also was not from venice he was from florence and that made iago mad, and
Moreover, in the beginning of the very tragic love story, Romeo had gone to a Capulet party that wasn 't really meant for him go to. Montagues and Capulets don 't mesh well yet he still went to see the girl he was said to be in love with, Rosaline. This is when the tragedy started to unravel. Tybalt spotted Romeo even though Romeo. Tybalt instantly had an urge to kill him.
Romeo acts before he thinks. After Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo immediately chases Tybalt and kills him, without thinking of the consequences. Prince Escalus had already said that if the Montagues and Capulets had another brawl, there would be death to pay. Romeo chose to ignore this or maybe even not think about it at all. “Alive in triumph—and Mercutio slain!
Also, if Romeo never got in between two people fighting with swords then Mercutio would of never been stabbed. Tybalt was most likely aiming to stab Romeo when he got in between the fight since he wanted revenge. But, he accidently stabbed Mercutio instead. In the movie portrayal done by Zeffirelli, Tybalt looked like he could not believe that he actually stabbed Mercutio and almost looked like he felt guilty for what has happened since he did not intend to stab Mercutio at all. Mercutio himself even asked “Why the dev’l came you between us?/I was hurt under your arm” (3.1.93-94).
Catherine of Siena once said,“Be who you were created to be, and you will set the world on fire.” When Catherine said this, she was telling people to be themselves no matter what in life. This can relate to Tybalt because he is someone who is always wanting to show himself off in a fiery daring way. Tybalt is never afraid to do this. But, who is also always getting closer to death every day, because of the rage of wanting to constantly fight someone. From all the unneeded things he has done to people, he gets to see a new version of life.
Tybalt has been slain, and Romeo banished, but who is to blame? Tybalt layed dead but by his own fault. Tybalt had fought to his last breath, and while Romeo had killed Tybalt it was primarily Tybalts fault and Tybalt probably deserved what he got. There are many reasons why it was his fault. Tybalt had a hatred towards peace and was known for starting fights, Tybalt had killed Mercutio, Romeo's best friend, and finally, Tybalt and Romeo were fighting and one of the two were bound to die.
Piece it together and you get, “we’re going to the Capulets!” Without Mercutio, Romeo would have never met Juliet. Romeo meeting Juliet is the most crucial part in the play because it builds plot. Another is after the fight and Mercutio perishes. Since Romeo now wants revenge, he battles Tybalt. Romeo states his vengeance when he states, “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him” (III.i.122).
Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because he killed mercutio, which made Romeo want to avenge him, then it caused him to be sent away. The prince sees what’s going on and sends romeo away because he avenged his cousin, so he didn’t want to hurt him, but
