Blame for the Deaths of Romeo and Juliet The two people or things I would most blame for their deaths are Romeo and fate. The reason for blaming Romeo is because he was too hasty, organised everything in secret and he was blinded by love. I think fate is also to blame as it also brought bad luck and also the letter did not reach Romeo. In the play Romeo was being too hasty by getting married so quickly to Juliet. This is shown by Romeo saying: “Then plainly know, my heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet; … But this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today.” This shows us that Romeo wasted no time in getting married.
Additionally, she is obsequious towards Iago because of her female role and responsibility as a wife. As a result of being so obedient, she later steals the highly valued handkerchief because her husband desired it. Shakespeare utilizes Emilia to portray his negative position on marriage and the modest duty of a wife in bed, and nothing more; while developing the submissive character of Desdemona. The foil of Emilia and Desdemona, as a result of their opposing views on marriage and physiognomies of women, helps Shakespeare portray his message of women and marriage. Emilia and Iago’s position on marriage can frequently be uncovered though their reflections on both men and women.
Fate plays a cruel role in making both Romeo and Juliet love the only person that they aren’t allowed to; each other. When Juliet finds out that Romeo is a Montague, an enemy of the Capulet family which she belongs to, she says, My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me, That I must love a loathed enemy. (Shakespeare, I.v.138-141) In this quotation, Juliet explains how her only love has risen from her only hate, because Romeo is a Montague.
If he made Romeo his first priority, he would have told him to think about all of the difficulties they might encounter and that it could be best to take his time with Juliet. Friar Laure... ... middle of paper ... ...meo and Juliet. He is not thinking of what is best for them in this situation, which would be for them to take it slow and not be married so hastily. In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, it is clear that Friar Laurence causes Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. First, the Friar was not as responsible as Romeo needed him to be especially when he agreed to marry him and Juliet without thinking it through.
Capulet and Montague’s hate had already created a blockade between the young lovers, yet Romeo and Juliet still urged to love each other even though they knew their consequences. From that, Romeo and Juliet sacrificed anything to be with each other. For instance, in the end, Romeo went through all the multiple struggles to die beside Juliet, and Juliet had taken the potion and went through all the pain just to be with Romeo. Suppose the hatred is replaced with brotherhood, it is sure that Romeo and Juliet would not have to overcome any death related obstacles. Therefore, the ancient struggle between the two families played a great role that proves this p... ... middle of paper ... ...to Friar Lawrence who comes up with the sacrificing plan that went wrong and resulted to a brutal end.
Also, if they truly love each other, they will be inseparable. Love can be a very mysterious character because you won’t know where it lies and when you feel it. The power of ‘love’ has guided Romeo to go back to the tomb to die with Juliet. The love at first sight can be seen as the most common way of falling in love with somebody because you are simply attracted to them when your eyes lock-on to each other and this happens in the play when Romeo sets eyes on Juliet during the Capulet feast. From then on, all the events that happen after that go downhill for Romeo and Juliet which mean they cannot be together so they decide to die instead, which is a brave, yet sad and emotional ending to the play.
As stated in the prologue of the play, “From ancient grudge breaks new mutiny.” The Capulets and Montagues could not find an agreement until the death of their children. “And the continuance of their parents’ rage, which but their children’s end, naught could remove.” Romeo and Juliet’s love could have been made a lot easier if the two families were not feuding. Instead of star crossed lovers they could have been called a happy couple. Many things would have changed. In Act 5, scene 5, line 296 Capulet says to Montague, “O brother Montague, give me thy hand.

Their union created devastating endings, thus creating the whole point of Shakespeare's play. The star-crossed lovers made choices that altered what fate has in store for them.
Romeo and Juliet could in fact be in love, but it cannot be denied that they are going about it in an immature way. Romeo believed he had found eternal love with Rosaline, but one look at Juliet and he forget about his lovesickness and then decided Juliet was his true love. This inconsistency was seen by other characters such as Mercutio and Friar Laurence, who say that Romeo’s feelings were merely infatuation and not love as he had said they were, showing that Juliet is a replacement Rosaline. (NOTE: FIX CONCLUSION!)
"(Act III, Scene 5, Line169-170). One is easily able to see the motherly care the nurse shows for Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. The counterpart to the love nurse displays for Juliet as a "mother" is the fatherly love the Friar gives to Romeo. The prince exiles Romeo because of his murder of Tybalt. This leaves the young man alone and scared of his future.
