There are a lot of people who are to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death but the most obvious one is Tybalt. Tybalt was lady Capulet’s nephew and Juliet’s cousin. Tybalt was also a troublemaker and hated the Montagues. To support that, “What, drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word as I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee. Have at thee, coward!” (1.1.70-72), is a quote said by Tybalt before everyone started fighting. Tybalt was called the “Prince of cats” by Mercutio because Tybalt was very hot-tempered and quarrelsome. The first reason is that Tybalt is to blame is that he killed Mercutio and was killed by Romeo. The second reason is that Romeo was banished because he killed Tybalt. The third reason is that Juliet would have never faked her death if Romeo was never banished.
“Anger doesn 't solve anything. It builds nothing, but it can make everything worse.” As you might be able to tell, the quote could very easily apply to Tybalt, the fierce and fiery character of The Tragic Story of Romeo and Juliet. In this play, Tybalt is responsible for his own death. Some examples supporting that statement, is that he was the one who had challenged the Montague Romeo in a duel, he had been told by the prince that if they fought again in the streets of Verona, Italy then they would be killed, he also killed Mercutio, Romeo 's best friend in a duel that was meant to kill Romeo.
Tybalt illustrates passionate hate which makes him very impatient with the Montagues and leads to his own death and causes emotional distress to the Capulet family. Accordingly this can be seen when Romeo goes to the fest at the Capulets and Tybalt wants to kill him solely because he was present at the fest. This, by his voice, should be a Montague. — (to his PAGE) Fetch me my rapier, boy.
The word “Love” has multiple meanings to it. According to Dictionary.com the true meaning of love means a profundly tender, affection towards someone. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare this is what their love meant and they died because of it.
Tybalt sent a letter to Romeo saying that there is going to be a battle between the two, but the letter never gets to Romeo. Mercutio is the one who gets the letter and does not tell Romeo. When Tybalt comes to battle Romeo, Mercutio tries to distract Tybalt, so he will not try to fight Romeo, and he gets killed. Romeo is angry with Tybalt, because of what he did to Mercutio, and ends up killing Tybalt. He then felt regret right after he did this, because they are now related through marriage.
Romeo allows his thirst for revenge to cloud his logical reasoning when he kills Tybalt who has just murdered Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend. Mercutio defends Romeo against Tybalt’s insults with comebacks and later his sword. As Romeo attempts to intervene, Mercutio is stabbed by Tybalt and Romeo is enraged. Once he finds out from Benvolio that the wound had killed him, Romeo,”Who had but newly entertained revenge,” (III.i.173), kills Tybalt and flees the scene. Romeo declined to
Their own families indifferences causing the death of their own children. Lastly, in Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt bullies Romeo when Romeo does not want to fight. Romeo loves Tybalt but he does not know that so Tybalt calls Romeo “a villain” (3.1, 64). Eventually Tybalt provokes Romeo enough to where they duel and Tybalt dies.
This fight between Romeo, Mercutio and Tybalt ends in serious matters. Tybalt comes up to Romeo wanting to fight him, but Mercutio steps in and starts fighting Tybalt. Mercutio is struck by Tybalt and as a result of this, Romeo says to Benvolio when everyone has left, “This day’s black fate on more days doth depend; This but begins the woe, others must end” (3.1.124-125). Romeo is furious at Tybalt for what he did to Mercutio that and he wants revenge so he goes after Tybalt, fights him and kills him. The Prince banishes Romeo from Verona as a consequence for his actions.
“Happiness is good, sadness is bad but together, they create a good story” These words from Luna Adriana Ardiansyah fit excellent for describing the erratic story of Romeo and Juliet. This story goes up and down with deaths, bad situations and plot twists. All these events led to different tragic events and Tybalt's death was one of them. In the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Tybalt is liable for his own death because he makes irrational decisions, he has anger issues, and he always has held a grudge against the Montagues.
Acting quickly on his emotions, Romeo begins to fight Tybalt out of anger. When Tybalt mocks Romeo, blaming him for Mercutio's death, Romeo thrusts his sword forward in defense saying “This shall determine that” (3.1.136). He kills Tybalt just moments after telling him he loves him. Romeo kills his wife’s cousin without a hesitation, despite his attempts earlier to keep the peace. He does the opposite of keep the peace between the families, he increases the tension between them.
Character Defense: Romeo We perceive that Romeo is innocent due to his apparent love for Tybalt and his clear disesteem to the brawl unfolding. He wanted to advent the violence thrust upon him by his love (Tybalt). He cared too much to fight him but when a good life-long friend, Mercutio, is murdered in front of his very eyes he is shaken to the core. He did this while not in the correct state of mind, cleary in a haze of sorrow and guilt not yet fully comprehending the effects of his actions. His gentle altercation with Tybalt defines his love for his friends and family.
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know ' st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.”
(1.5.80) Any man or child would not wish to undermine his or her elders authority especially when at their house so for Tybalt to say this is a very bold statement of his character. Not only is he hateful and bold but Tybalt is also very demanding to the people around him. He orders his servant to fetch his sword and in the olden days people were very mean and demanding of their servants. He also orders his uncle to get rid of Romeo at his uncles party.
Romeo disagrees and says, “Tybalt, the reason why I have to love thee / doth excuse the appertaining rage” (III I 63-65). Here Romeo expresses his love for Tybalt due to the fact that Romeo is wed to Juliet, Tybalt’s cousin making him a relative of Tybalt. However, Romeo does not reveal why he loves Tybalt. Mercutio fights for Romeo and is slain by Tybalt and Romeo seeking revenge, murders Tybalt and is banished. Both these events cause other events of poor communication to take place in this chain reaction which leads to the dreadful end of Romeo and Juliet.
