There is always that one person that does not listen to anyone no matter if they are given good or bad advice. That one person always ends up on the wrong path. That is the same story as “The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet”, by William Shakespeare. Who is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet? Is it Friar Laurence, Tybalt, or even Romeo himself? There are multiple people to blame for the deaths because they had a lot of other influences to lead them on to death such as fights with Tybalt that they were involved in. Or the feud between the families of Capulets and Montagues. Maybe that had set off a spark that had soon lit the fire that led to the shameful deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty.
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. Romeo killing Tybalt is a decision made by free will. As stated in The Choice is Yours: The Fate of Free Will, sometimes a teen’s brain can decide a series of actions before the person is aware of it. Romeo is furious and his brain leads him to the decision to kill Tybalt because his anger gets the best of him. Of course, most actions come with a consequence and because Romeo is banished, he will never be able to see his beloved Juliet ever again. Sadly, the fight is only the beginning to the downfall of these “star-crossed
If Tybalt would have listened to Benvolio or just left him alone then the Prince wouldn’t have done what he did. The Prince came to them and told them that if they disturbed the streets again they would have to pay with it with their lives. If this whole event had not occurred then when Tybalt and Mercutio died the Prince might have not been forced to banish Romeo. The quote I used portrays just how blood hungry and savage Tybalt really is. All Tybalt is concerned with is killing some Montagues. He is against peace of any kind. This is the first strike that lead to the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet. By refusing to put down his weapon Tybalt caused the Prince to instil the punishment of death on any that disturb the streets
His own irrational decisions punishes him for himself always wanting to picking fight and arguing, but always having the urge to always win. His grudge against the Montagues. Another reason causing his death,because he never dropped the anger he had with Romeo. The capulets and Montagues were already rivals too. The last reason is was his anger issues. Tybalt getting mad over the big and small things is not good. Cleary if Tybalt would have made all these things better and tried to control all of these he would still be alive and the story would be different. All these reasons and more are the leading causes to Tybalt's
The first reason Tybalt is to blame for the death of the two lovers is that he picked a fight with Mercutio. Mercutio and Romeo
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. If Tybalt had not killed Mercutio, Romeo would not have gotten upset with Tybalt. When people found out about Tybalt being killed by Romeo, the Prince banished him from Verona. Since he gets banished it is harder for him to see Juliet, which also made it hard for the news about her being in a deep sleep to reach Romeo. These are my reasons on why Tybalt should also be to blame for the two
The story is about a tragedy death of two star-crossed lovers, and how they fell in love falling in love. Romeo starts by going after a girl named Rosalina, and then falls madly in love when the beauty of Juliet. Romeo and Juliet meet at the Capulet’s party, and then fall instantly in love, with each other, and get married in the Friar Laurence office. While Romeo and Juliet physically committed the acts that ended there own lives, the long-stand family feuding and fate should be blamed for their deaths.
When Romeo ends up killing Tybalt, not only is this a tragedy in itself, but it leads to other events that cause the overall tragedy of the play in which Romeo and Juliet kill themselves. In this quote Romeo reestablishes his masculinity once again by fighting Tybalt. He also honors Mercutio by avenging his death. “Alive in triumph, and Mercutio slain! Away to heaven respective lenity, And fire-ey’d fury be my conduct now!” (III,i). Although the death of Tybalt is tragic, the consequences Romeo faces for following his code of honor lead to the most tragic event of all. In this quote, the prince decides to exile Romeo for killing Tybalt. “And for that offence Immediately we do exile him hence” (III,i). Because Romeo just has to follow his code of honor and kill Tybalt, he is now in exile, making it hard for him to communicate with Juliet. When Juliet and Friar make a plan to fake Juliet’s death, Romeo does not receive the information, setting up a tragic disaster. Romeo then thinks she is truly dead and then soon the two end up dead from killing themselves over a
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.” when he finds out that Juliet is dead, but doesn’t know she faked her death. Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man. I see that thou art poor: hold, there is forty ducats: let me have a dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear as will disperse itself through all the veins that the life-weary taker may fall dead and that the trunk may be discharged of breath as violently as hasty powder fired doth hurry from the fatal cannon 's womb.” These quotes show you that Romeo is planning to kill himself because of Juliet faking her death, which Romeo doesn’t know about. In the end, Romeo kills himself by poison and dies by Juliet and then Juliet stabs herself and dies when she finds Romeo dead. This is truly a tragic story because of the deaths of these two young lovers because of one of Tybalt’s
After Mercutio dies in Romeo’s arm, Romeo confronts Tybalt, seeking revenge for the death of his friend. Ultimately, he kills Tybalt before realizing his actions. Prince, trying to settle the scene, says, “His fault concludes but what the law should end, the life of Tybalt. (3.1.147)” Prince explains that because Tybalt murdered Mercutio, death was his punishment. However, because Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo’s punishment is to be banished from Verona. Romeo creates more complications with his relationship with Juliet, especially right after they got married, in result of slaying Tybalt. There is no possible way for them to contact each other now. This leaves Juliet heartbroken, and risking everything to be with him once again. Being too vindictive and hasty to seek revenge did not allow Romeo to think of the repercussions that would affect his relationship with his
¨Bullying is a national epidemic” (Macklemore) bullying has always been a problem but no one seems to try and stop it. In the novel Shattering Glass and the play Romeo and Juliet the evolution of bullying can be seen, but yet no one had tried to stop it in either of the books. In the play Romeo and Juliet the families bully each other around until eventually their own kids take their lives, because they could not be together due to the feud. In the book Shattering Glass by Gail Giles the characters touch a little bit on cyberbullying, but mainly they verbally and physically abuse people in the story to help them achieve what the characters want.
However this isn’t the only thing tybalt has done. The first time tybalt met Romeo tybalt said this “ This, by his voice, should be a Montague Fetch me my rapier, boy. What dares the slave…” (I,5,676) This shows Tybalt Judging Romeo because he’s a Montague and not giving him a chance to show he's a good person. So now just imagine if Tybalt would have just gave romeo a chance would it have resulted in the deaths of Romeo and
Passion is a powerful emotion that plays a huge part in the decisions we make. Passion may seem beneficial, but ultimately leads to destruction, and it doesn't matter whether it is love or hate both can make an individual reckless and blind. In William Shakespeare's play “Romeo and Juliet”, many of the characters make rash choices because passion interferes with their capability to reason and this not only affects the individual but also others around them. This thesis will be proven by the analysis of Romeo, Tybalt, Mercutio, actions that are driven by passionate love or hate and how it has affected the other characters of the play. The power of passionate love is illustrated in the play through Romeo’s love for Rosaline and Juliet, which let him to make certain decisions
Communication is always crucial for the success and happiness in relationships. However, when done wrong, it usually results in failure. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, poor communication causes characters to make bad decisions that lead to the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet. Poor communication between the characters is found by keeping secrets, which prevents the revealing of truth and through assumption in which characters do not try to find the truth. As the play progresses it becomes evident that poor communication has negative impacts on the story causing the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.
