Romeo and Juliet
Who's to Blame
It is Romeo who is to blame for his and Juliet's death. He is responsible because he made too many mistakes that caused him not to be able to see Juliet anymore. Romeo made a mistake loving Juliet. “Then plainly know my heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet: As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine; And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage” (II.III.57-61). Romeo started to love a Capulet, so he let his love for Juliet interfere with his common sense. The next reason Romeo is to blame is that romeo killed Tybalt. After Romeo killed Tybalt, Benvolio says¨Romeo, away, be gone! The citizens are up, and Tybalt slain. Stand not amazed: the prince will doom the death, if thou art taken: hence, be gone, away¨ (III.I.128-131)! If Romeo didn't kill Tybalt the he wouldn't have been banished from the Capulets and he wouldn't have made the Capulets want to kill him. So if Romeo would have been more smart then he wouldn't have caused the death of him and Juliet.
