Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Who do you think is responsible for Romeo and Juliet's death? Romeo and Juliet is romantic tragedy which adventures through almost each and every emotion you have. The end of this contains three deaths that caused two families, who have been feuding since the days of their ancestors, to bring peace upon the city of fair Verona. The two families are the Montagues and Capulets. Romeo fell in love with Rosaline but his love was unrequainted. This must have depressed Romeo making himself feel ugly and unwanted. Mercutio and the rest of Romeo's friends made him come to the party with them to make him feel better. This is where he fell in love with Juliet, and, this time the love was requainted. It could be said that the reason they fell in love was fate. ...read more.

Middle

He could easily have just said no but instead he just gives Romeo the murderous potion. If he would not have given Romeo the potion I do not think that Romeo could have pulled himself round committing suicide any other way. I also think that the Friar plays in a big role with the deaths in that if he had not agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet they would not be dead. Friar Lawrence thought he could stop violence once and for all in Verona. Of course his ego over took him and after marrying them he was the one who decided to give Juliet the potion. This made everyone including Romeo think that she was dead. His decision for her to take the potion instead of telling the families that Romeo and Juliet were married. ...read more.

Conclusion

I think this shows how much he hates Montagues. The following day Tybalt went out and tried to start a fight with Romeo for gate crashing the party. Mercutio stepped in and then Tybalt kills him. This filled Romeo up with so much hatred that Romeo went out to seek, and kill, Tybalt. After Romeo went out and killed Tybalt Prince Escalus decided to exile Romeo. If Romeo was not exiled Friar John would not have had to send a telegram. It was the failure of the telegram that caused the deaths. This means it all boils down to Tybalt killing Mercutio and filling Romeo's heart up with hatred. I think it is Tybalt that played a major role in the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because all the reasons Romeo killed himself was because of Tybalt's actions on Mercutio. Juliet died because she found Romeo dead. This concludes my essay and I have discussed my point of view on whose fault were the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Tom Rothery ...read more.
