They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival.
The most foolish decision is deciding in the end to kill themselves just because the other is dead. Foolishness can easily be put to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet Firstly, Romeo and Juliet made a terrible mistake by kissing before they had even known each other names. It was very foolish to kiss each other even though they didn’t know each other. If they had not kissed at the party, they could have made smarter decisions if they would have decided to take it a little slower and not meet every night and risk getting in trouble. Juliet knew that Romeo could be killed if he were to get caught with Juliet in lines (2.2.62-65).
Romeo and Juliet is a story of love sprouting between two who were in families, or houses rather that were seen as enemies by the other family, but the story also consists of characters upholding higher meaning. One of these characters in particular, Mercutio holds a much deeper meaning than he is generally seen as. For example, Mercutio stands as a mediator between the two houses, he does not in particular prefer one over the other due to the fact that they both are shown as a disgrace under his words and he wishes for “a plague o’ both your houses” before his death. Then, later on he represents fate, he causes the fate for which the story falls upon indirectly and relates to the well-known law of motion that also applies to living beings because “every action has an equal and opposite reaction” clearly can be applied here. And to top it all off, he represents one who jokes too often can be one to joke his way to untimely death.
Shakespeare describes how love can be risky because it can end up causing harm and damage to others. Love is risky in who you the person may be, and how both lives of the people have been, Shakespeare shows this in the play when Romeo and Juliet marry because of their feuding ancestors and families. “Come, come with me, and we will make short work, / For, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone / Till Holy Church incorporate two in one” (2.6.35-37), illustrates Shakespeare’s view that love is risky, which we can tell because Romeo and Juliet are being wed in secret. Shakespeare 's of damaging love is clear in Montague’s monologue, “Alas, my liege, my wife is dead tonight.
Most people believe that romance brings love and affection, but when taken to the extreme, it can lead to tragedy and despair. Romeo and Juliet may be the most famous of the great literary tragedies. The feud between the Montagues and Capulets prohibits the love and ultimately results in the death of the “star-crossed lovers”. It may be difficult to truly determine who is to blame for the tragedy because their lives were influenced and affected by many figures. But the question is, who is most to blame for the death of the two lovers?
What the Capulets did to Juliet explains why they were selfish because instead of respecting Juliet’s decision they thrash on her and say things to force her to become a wife. This disconnect with their daughter is why they were not able to save Juliet from death. The other factor that caused the demise of Romeo and Juliet was their want for their desires. For instants, Romeo did not think about the consequences of meeting with Juliet even though he was being hunted.
Another somewhat minor mistake that changes the future is Romeo and Juliet ’s mistake to pursue their love. Romeo and Juliet may be madly in love right from the start, but it wouldn’t have killed them to forget the idea of a forbidden love. “Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here! / Is Rosaline, whom thou [Romeo] didst love so dear, / So soon forsaken?
Author Stieg Larsson once wrote, “Impulsive actions led to trouble, and trouble could have unpleasant consequences.” In the play Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, each characters have a flaw that are used against their circumstances. Very rarely does a character in this story thought about the consequences of their actions before they did something, resulting in devastating outcomes. Granted, the main characters of the story have a noticeable weakness that contributes to their tragic ends. Romeo and Juliet both have a fatal flaw of being too impulsive when it comes to love and decisions.
Romeo has a large influence on Romeo and Juliet’s death because, if Romeo wasn’t heartbroken over Rosaline and in “love” with Rosaline then he wouldn’t have went to the party to see her and accidently see Juliet and ended up marrying her when he knew he was heartbroken that Rosaline wanted to become a Nun. However, Lord Capulet is still the main person to blame for the deaths of Romeo And Juliet, just because he is to controlling and way too selfish Because, at the Capulet’s party Tybalt saw Romeo the Montague and he told Lord Capulet and Lord Capulet told Tybalt to leave Romeo alone cause he didn’t want his party ruined if he started something with the Montague. “Content thee, gentle coz, let him alone./
The most defiant choice that Romeo and Juliet take for their love is their choice to be married. Juliet knows that her father or anyone in her family would not approve of this choice, but she still does it cause she loves Romeo. This love struck mentality drives Romeo and Juliet to be married and this secret marriage causes turmoil when Lord Capulet demands Juliet to marry Paris. Although Juliet knows that she is already married to Romeo loyal to him, not Paris and refuses to marry “doth Paris” (Shakespeare. III.v.145).
The fact that Romeo and Juliet where each from families that hated the other guaranteed they were doomed from the second they laid eyes on each other, so here death is the fault of the parents. In a way, if the Montagues and Capulet’s could’ve just been friends, all these deaths could’ve been avoided. Therefor the deaths were the parents were the parents fault, not the Friar’s. This is not accurate, because even if the families were best friends, Lord Capulet would have still wanted Juliet to marry Paris not Romeo , and they woul have gotten in a feud
With the question you ask, who do you blame the most for the trouble in Romeo and Juliet? I have the answer of, the families. The reason being is that if they never had the quarrels, Romeo and Juliet would of been able to get married and live happily ever after. The story starts off with informing us that there is history between the families, and it’s not a history to recall. “ Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny” (Shakespeare, 377).
So he agreed to marry them because he wanted the Capulet and Montague fights to end as well. His intentions were to have a letter sent to Romeo so he would know that Juliet wasn’t actually dead. The letter never reached Romeo, but I don’t think it was Friar Johns fault because he wanted them to get married in the first place to bring the families together to end the feud. On the other hand I think that Lady Capulet should be punished for being so hard on Juliet and trying to force her to marry Paris. Especially when she didn’t like Paris
If we were to remove Friar Lawrence there would be a happy ending, because Romeo would have got cheated on and then he’d move on to a different girl. The tragedies that happened in Romeo and Juliet are truly dark and depressing. Friar Lawrence is to blame for these events. He tried to change the feelings of people even though he was no professional who knew how the brain worked.
Did the feud actually end in Romeo and Juliet? The hero position is that the feud did end. This is because in the end of the story, Romeo and Juliet die together in the tomb, and are later carried out for the funeral ceremony. Even though their families have been at each other for decades, their children's deaths have opened their eyes and have shown them they need to honor their children.
