The Blaming of Romeo and Juliet
Throughout time, there have been many tragedies cause by romance. Romeo and Juliet find love for each but it can't be followed through because of the families feud, Romeo is sent off and Juliet Is set to marry Paris whom she doesn’t want to marry. Friar and Juliet make a plan so Juliet and Romeo can be together but that plan never gets to Romeo so meanwhile Romeo thinks Juliet is dead and kills himself and Juliet wakes up sees him dead and kills herself. At the end of the play, prince Escalus wants to know who should be punished. In other words, he wants to know who is most accountable for Romeo's and Juliet's deaths. While both families and friar Lawrence are partially responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, fate is mostly to blame.
Both the Montague and Capulet families can be blamed for their children's deaths. Both of the families can be blamed for their children's death because the families have a big feud going on that leads them not being able to be together. As it states in the text, " from forth the fatal loins of these two foes"(prologue). To explain, the hatred of the two families is still continuing with Romeo and Juliet making them think they have to hate each other. When they want to be together its hard with the families arguing which leads to lying and lying leading to death. More specifically, Juliet's mother can be blamed for the deaths of both Romeo and Juliet because she is forcing Juliet to marry someone she doesn’t want, "think of marriage now"(1.3). Her mother is putting pressure on her and forcing her not to marry anyone else. Her mother's sense of doing what she wants leads to her daughter not being happy and faking her death to be with someone she actually wants. Lastly, Juliet's father can also be blamed for the deaths of both children because he threatens to not be with her if she doesn’t marry someone just like her mother, "get thee to church o' Thursday,/Or never after look me in the face:" (3.5). He's threatening her which means she will get even more mad and not like her dad forcing her to leave which means her and Romeo can be together but if her dad finds out thy both shall be dead. The feud between the family's is leading them all to death.
Friar Lawrence Is partially to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. One reason he is blamed is because he questions Romeos love for Juliet, making Romeo feel stupid, "But come, young waverer, come, go with me,/ In one respect I'll thy assistant be;" (2.3). Friar is questioning Romeo's emotions and just agreeing...
