Romeo and Juliet

Who is most at fault for there death

Lord Capulet and Lord Montague

I think the people most at fault for their death is Lord Capulet and Lord Montague. I think this because who started this feud? Shakespeare Clearly writes, "Two households, Both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, Where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny"(1. 1. 1-3). He says that there feud began many years ago. That 2 households started fighting. They are some what alike but a great hate between them.

Reason 2, Tybalt's Death

If the hatred never began Tybalt and Mercutio would have never have started to fight. Therefor neither of them would have been killed. Which sparked even more rage and Romeo getting banned from Verona. If Romeo was in Verona he probably would have got the letter and knew what was happening with Juliet and Friar. So he would have not killed himself and juliet wouldn't have killed herself either. Mercutio weeps, " Help me into some house, Benvolio, or i shall fait. A plague on both your houses!)"(3.1.107-110). Mercurtio's last words were a plague on both your houses, Which he is saying im done with both families he is showing his hate toward both families. I think he wonders all these years of hate and death of both families for what

Reason 3 Friar lawrence

My 3rd reason who i at fault for romeo and juliets death i think some would say friar lawrence but i would say The lords. But who really encouraged friar did give her the drug? who encouraged the hate? who said Romeo and Juliet couldn't get married? Friar never would have gave her the drug. Romeo would have got the letter if he wasn't banned from Verona. Capulet yells, "Nay, more, I doubt it not. Wife, go you to her ere you go to bed. Acquaint her here of my son Paris' love, And bid her, mark you me, on Wednesday next

But, soft! What day is this?" (3.4.15-18) Capulet is getting made that she wont marry him because he doesn't know her true love and her husband.

Opposing view

Some people would argue that Frar is more at fault but i would disagree. Because who started the hate who made it that they cant get married. If there wasn't the feud Fria would have never made the choices he did. If they never started to fight in the first place people would have been fine with them.
