Romeo and Juliet - blame for their deaths.

Extracts from this document...


Romeo and Juliet Essay I think there are many scenarios to blame for Romeo and Juliet's deaths, such as fate, chance, adolescent passion, the feud, and the fathers. It may have been fate. Romeo believes strongly in fate, as seen in act one, scene four. 'Some consequence yet hanging in the stars' I think Romeo knew that something bad was going to happen that night. 'Star-crossed lovers' this also refers to fate. Fate is not a strong enough reason for two people to die. It may also have been chance or bad luck. For example the letter not being sent to Mantua in time, so Romeo didn't know the plan Friar Lawrence had devised to counter-balance the accidental death of Mercutio. ...read more.


'Is Rosaline whom thou didst love so dear, So soon forgotten?' Also if Romeo hadn't acted so hastily when Mercutio was killed then he would never have been banished to Mantua. The feud played a big part in Romeo and Juliet's deaths. If there was no feud then Romeo and Juliet could have been together without worrying and Mercutio and Tybalt wouldn't have been killed, and Romeo wouldn't have been banished, and Juliet wouldn't have taken the potion and they would have had a happy life together. Juliet's father could also be to blame for the tragedy as he was very controlling and didn't give Juliet a choice on who she could marry. ...read more.


The Friar could be one of the main characters to blame for the deaths; I believe he regretted what he did at the end of the play. He knew he had done something wrong and didn't want to get caught for it. I think he was feeling guilty knowing Romeo killed himself because the plan he made up had failed with horrible consequences. I think that the reason Romeo and Juliet died was because of Friar Lawrence and the feud. I believe it was Friar Lawrence's fault because he got too involved and he was the one to come up with the plan, and if it wasn't for the feud Romeo and Juliet could have been open about their relationship and Romeo would never have killed Tybalt and never got sent to Mantua and the whole tragedy would never have started. ...read more.
