Romeo and Juliet Final Project

by: Maddie Chromy


Romeo is at fault for the problems that happen in Romeo and Juliet. I feel that it is him because almost all of the problems that have happened so far have had to deal with Romeo. For example he went to the party, kissed Juliet, and killed Tybalt.

Reason Number 1

Shakespeare writes, "and we mean well in go to this masque, but 'tis no wit to go" (1.4.48-49). This explains that Romeo is at fault because he chose to go to the party even though he knew it probably wasn't the best choice. If he wouldn't have choose to go to the party then none of the problems that did happen would have happened.

Reason Number 2

Shakespeare writes, "For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch, And palm to palm in holy palmers' kiss" (1.5. 101-102) . This explains that Romeo is most at fault because he fell in love with Juliet. He kissed her when they just met and they are planning on getting married. This is a problem because they are from different houses that don't get along. They are going to have to hide that they are in love and that they are married from their families. If Romeo wouldn't have kissed her at the party then a lot of the problems that did happen would have never happened.

Reason Number 3

Shakespeare states, "Romeo, away, be gone! The citizens are up, and Tybalt slain. Stand not amazed. The prince will doom thee death If thou art taken. Hence, be gone away" (3.1.134-137). This explains that Romeo is most at fault because he killed Tybalt. This problem will lead on to more problems. Romeo is gonna be banned Verona and goes to Mantua. This means that he is going to have to be away from Juliet.

Opposing View

Some people may think that the servant is most at fault for all of the problems happening because the servant invited Romeo to the party. f the servant didn't invite him to the party than Romeo and Juliet would have never met. If the wouldn't have met there would have been no problems.But it was more Romeo's fault because he could have decided to not go. The servant can't help that he can't read but Romeo can make his decisions. That is why Romeo is more at fault for the problems and not the Servant.
