Who Was To Blame For The Deaths O fRomeo And Juliet

Extracts from this document...


Who Was To Blame For The Deaths Of Romeo And Juliet One of the major reasons Romeo and Juliet die in the play is because of the ancient feud going on between the two families for centuries. Tybalt is one of the most wanted person who I think is most to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, because he doesn't want the to families to up the feud and he hates all Motagues like he hates hell. We know this when he says in Act 1 Scene 1 lines 65-66: "What drawn and talk of peace? I hate the word as I hate hell and all Motagues, and thee." At the Capulets party Tybalt sees Romeo and wants to kill him on the spot, he says this in Act 1 Scene 5, lines 57-58: "Now by the stock of honor of my kin. ...read more.


O, courteous Tybalt, honest gentleman, that ever I should live to see thee dead!" this shows us that the nurse was very fond of Tybalt, Tybalt was backed by the Capulets he thought that what ever he did, he did it to protect the family honor and he thought that it was not a sin, even killing someone, as long as he was protecting the family honor, he did not regard any of this as sin. If Tybalt had obeyed his uncle at the party an left Romeo alone and if hadn't challenged Romeo to a duel nobody would have died.

Lady Capulet has ambitions like Lord Capulet to, and she doesn't care about Juliet's feelings. On the other hand the Motagues are on the innocent side of the play. The only, but very big, thing there blamed for is for not giving up the ancient grudge. I think that the two families can't pluck up courage and own up to there own mistakes. The third person who I think is to blame is Friar Lawrence. The biggest mistake h makes is to let Romeo and Juliet marry each other when he knows that it will all end up wrong, he says this in Act 2 Scene 6, line 9: "These violent delights will have violent ends". The other thing I blame him for is that he should have delivered the message to Romeo himself other than sending Friar John. The Nurse also has a major part of the blame, she puts Juliet in a harder position. The Nurse finds about Juliet's secret at the Capulet's party and keeps it a secret 1 English Coursework Tahir Ahmad 11E ...read more.
