Who is to blame for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Who is to blame for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet The way this play is written, it is hard to clarify who is to blame for the death of the two lovers, this is because a lot of charters were involved in some way, and therefore could be to blame for their death. In this essay I'm going to try and figure out the character that could be classified as the key figure in the death of the two lovers.

Middle

Now I personally think that what Friar Lawrence did was a very stupid thing to do Even though he meant well, his actions where not the right thing to do at the time when both families had pure hatred for one another. This has now taken the focus of attention off the parents of the two families and directed it in the way of Friar Lawrence. In act three Tybalts comes to pick a fight with Romeo.

Conclusion

At this part in the play, you kind of realise that what ever happens, rests on the Friars shoulders. Romeo then buys poison rushes back to Verona and takes it in front of Juliet's resting body, when Juliet wakes up she realises her love is dead so she kills her self with Romeos dagger. Looking back over this story I notice that Friar Laurence means well all the time, and just wants the Montague's and Capulet's to come together as friends. He thinks that if he can get Romeo and Juliet together, then he can make the parents friends again. So I think the Friar Laurence is the cause of the death of the two start crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet. ...read more.
