Romeo & Juliet were star crossed lovers form the beginning

Extracts from this document...


Romeo & Juliet essay Romeo & Juliet were star crossed lovers form the beginning, In the prologue it told us that their relationship would come to an end, but the audience still wills them to live happily ever after. There are a lot of people to blame in the play such as Benvolio, Mercutio, Balthazar, Romeo & Juliet, Friar Lawrence, Paris and the Nurse. Also there is the Capulet & Montague family and one of the most important things in it this was fate. Benvolio & Mercutio are the main people to start the dice rolling by gate crashing the Capulet party. If they hadn't have done this then Romeo wouldn't have seen Juliet and still think he was madly in love with Rosalie. ...read more.


If the friar had not agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet, it is possible that the couple would have given up on the idea of being together. On the other hand Romeo and Juliet may have been fated to marry and would have got married whatever the friars decision was. I think the friar was not to blame because he saw it as young couple in love and want to be together for the rest of their lives. He thought he was doing the right thing and gods work to marry this young couple. The friar should have not suggested his dramatic plan to Juliet that she would fake her own death so they can run out of that town together. ...read more.


Juliet shouldn't have deceived and disobeyed her parents and like how Romeo is she shouldn't have rushed into things as well. If she hadn't had fallen in love with Romeo on that night then they would have kept their lives. I think that Juliet has the same amount of blame but not as much as Romeo because she thought thins through a bit more carefully. The Capulet and Montague families have the other quarter of the blame for starting these quarrels off in the first place. My opinion is that there are many people to blame but they each have a share of responsibility. From the beginning Romeo and Juliet were star-crossed lovers and most of what has happened is down to them but you cant put blame on love! Isaac Wardle 10 R Mr. woolley - English ...read more.
