Who is to blame for Romeo and Juliet's death?

Extracts from this document...


Who is to blame for Romeo and Juliet's death Romeo and Juliet are two people who fall in love but not knowing that they are each from different families who do not like each other each, Romeo and Juliet find out the truth but it doesn't stop them seeing each other and getting married. But it all falls apart when Romeo and Juliet die due to Friar Lawrence's plan back firing. There are many people to blame for Romeo and Juliet's deaths such as .......... Family Fighting I think the most significant reason for Juliet's death is the families fighting. If they had got along with each other then Romeo and Juliet would have been able to be together and not have to be together in secret. The thing about the Capulets and the Montagues is that they could have stopped fighting if they wanted to. ...read more.


He is more responsible for Juliet's death because of the plan he gets Juliet into. This plan was to help get Romeo and Juliet out of Verona, giving a poison to Juliet which made her fall into a deep sleep. Fate Fate is something which nothing or know one can stop. Fate plays a major role in this play. An example of this is if Romeo found Juliet later when she had taken the poison then maybe she would have woke before Romeo drank the poison himself. The way and the timing of how things happened in this play affected the way in which the story ended. There are many different examples of fate in this play, the ways in which these have happened affected the storyline itself, the way the story ended etc. ...read more.


Another reason into why Romeo could be blamed for Juliet's death, is the fact he should have tried to keep the peace better, although the families didn't get on with each other, if Romeo hadn't mad it worse by constantly causing trouble and arguing in the street, then maybe him and Juliet would not have had to hide their relationship from others as much. Conclusion Like I have stated there are many different people and reasons to blame into who fault it actually was for the death of Juliet. Although this is the case I think the main reason she died is because of the two different families arguing because this was the main reason they had to hide their relationship. Although this is my opinion as I have showed there are many different examples of who could be blamed this play is also based on a lot of fate because that is the one thing that made the storyline go as it did. ...read more.
