Tragedy is all around us in the world. The tragedy of Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet is that so many people receive fault for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence is at fault because he tells Juliet to fake her death and he is unable to communicate this to Romeo. Fate is also to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare writes the play giving the audience the final decision of who is at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
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 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.
So how does King hamlet affect the theme of the play as a whole even while being so briefly present? It all comes off of when when he told hamlet what really happened. Hamlet was overwhelmed with madness and as a result it affected everyone else because he was acting out his madness by making them wonder why he was so mad for so long because over time they didn’t think he should still be that mad about his father's death. So when King Hamlet told his son Hamlet that he was killed by Hamlet's uncle Claudius, which is now sleeping with his mother, drove Hamlet to instantly seek vengeance for his father throughout the entire play. Which set the theme for the play being, vengeance.
Death and tragedy engulf the people of Verona, who is to blame for this big mess? If you go back to the beginning of William Shakespeare 's play “Romeo and Juliet” it is easy to see this tragedy wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Mercutio and his tendency to meddle in other people’s lives. First he convinced Romeo that his love for Rosaline wasn’t worth it and he needed to get over her. He then led Romeo to his horrific fate when he forced Romeo to crash the Capulet party, where he would first meet his future bride Juliet. If it weren’t for his arrogance and selfishness Mercutio and Tybalt wouldn’t have gotten in a fight, causing Romeo’s banishment.
Perhaps the character who played this biggest part in the tragedy was Lord Capulet, Juliet's father. There are several reasons why Lord Capulet is to be blamed for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. His decision to force Juliet to get married, his contribution of the family feud, and his decision to change the day of the marriage. The main reason I think Lord Capulet is to blame is because he forced Juliet to get married. Him forcing Juliet to get married only left Juliet two choices and that was to either run away or get married, and of course we all know that her getting marred to anyone but Romeo wasn't an option.
In this play we discovered that Lord Capulet had some things to do with the deaths of Romeo and Juliet but it wasn’t just Lord Capulet who had something to do with the deaths but also Friar Lawrence had a lot to do with Juliet 's death like giving her that poison to fake her death. If the Montagues and the Capulets stopped fighting along time before this a lot of people could have not lost their lives because of this. So Friar saw an opportunity to fix this family feud and he married the two thinking it would help but it only made it worse. This is just like wars going on today in the world, we all don 't agree with each other and we fight and kill each other because we think it 's going to help our problems but it 's just going to make it all worse in
In the tragic play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Mercutio and Tybalt have an argument which leads up to a fight to the death but they both end up dying. Even though some may believe it’s Mercutio’s fault for the deaths, I believe that it’s Tybalt’s fault for both of the deaths. I believe that Tybalt is responsible for both his own and Mercutio’s death because he is hot-headed and opinionated when it comes to listening to other people One of the Reasons Tybalt is to blame for both of the deaths is because of his careless action choice. After talking to Mercutio, Tybalt was furious and wanted to fight him “(Draws his sword)” (3.1.70) which shows that he pulls out his sword, wanting to take on Mercutio. During the fight, Romeo gets

It also leads to a downfall of almost every character in the play. This act of murder causes Hamlet to die, and everyone else around him, including his mother and uncle. The entire play, readers continuously a theme of revenge due to this one action. Hamlet seeks revenge on his uncle for killing his father. In Act 5, the tension rests when Hamlet and Claudius are both eliminated.
Benvolio says this to Romeo, because Tybalt has just been killed because he killed Mercutio. “Romeo, away, be gone! / The citizens are up and Tybalt slain.”(3.1.130-131) This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents don’t know that they are married. So to try and cheer up their daughter they try and marry her to another man to get her spirits up. This supports that Tybalt is to blame because his death leads to a lot more events like the capulet finding out and being heartbroken, but Juliet is even more sad because Romeo has been punished to exile but her parents do not know that they are married.
Romeo, the Montagues and Capulets, and Friar Lawrence all had a big part of the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Each character is caught in the middle of the problem. No matter how small of a part the 3 characters have in this book, they were all involved in the death. A quote from Richard Le Gallienne, “If Romeo and Juliet make a tragedy of it nowadays, they have

Juliet 's father arranging Juliet 's marriage to Paris made her mourning worse, already being married to Romeo yet being separated made her to reason with Friar Laurence.
