Lord and Lady Montague

People should not hold grudges

Act 1 scene 1

Lord and Lady Montague are worried about Romeo their son. He has been very sad because the person he loves does not want to get married, but Lord and Lady Montague do not know what is going on or why he is so depressed. So they ask "O where is Romeo? Saw you him today?"(Shakespeare 997). If they knew what was going on in the beginning then he could have lived in the end.

Act 3 scene 2

Romeo has just killed Tybalt and the prince said that Romeo is the cause of the fighting but Lord Montague says "Not Romeo, Prince', he was Mercurtio's friend;His fault concludes but what the law should end"(Shakespeare 1051). If Lord and Lady Montague would have said more, so that Romeo could stay maybe their would not have been as many deaths including Lady Montague and Romeo. Also if their was no feuded between the Montague's and the Capulet's then Tybalt's and Mercutio's death would not have happened or have been a problem.

Act 5 scene 3

Lady Montague has just died and Lord Montague says "Alas, my liege, my wife is dead tonight"(Shakespeare 1099). If Lord Montague would have keep fighting for Romeo to stay in Verona, then Romeo would have never killed himself because he thought Juliet was dead and Juliet would have never killed herself and Lady Montague would have never died of depression because of the death of her son Romeo.

Act 5 scene 3

The theme of Romeo and Juliet is that people should not hold grudges. At the end of the book their has been a lot of deaths, including Romeo, Juliet, and Lady Montague. If their was no grudge between the Montagues and the Capulets then those people would not have died. The Prince said "A glooming peace this morning with it brings"(Shakespeare 1102). Because of the deaths of Romeo and Juliet their is peace between the Montagues and Capulets
