ROMEO AT FAULT

By: Kelly Johnson

ROMEO AT THE PARTY

Romeo states, ¨What lady is that, which doth enrich the hand of yonder knight?¨(1.5.40)

This piece of textual evidence is when Romeo sees Juliet for the first time. Romeo decides to go to the party, even though he knows that it is for the Capulets, and not the Montagues. He was told to meet new women because of what had happened with his last love. Romeo meets Juliet and falls in love instantly. He decides to go find her and dances with her. They then connect later through the night, and that is how everything started. This is one of my reasons why Romeo is at fault.

ROMEO AND JULIET GET MARRIED

Friar states, ¨Come, come with me, and we will make short work; For, by your leaves, you shall not stay alone Till holy church incorporate two in one.¨ (2.6.35-37)


This piece of textual evidence is when Romeo and Juliet tell eachother how much love they have for one another. They say that they are so in love, that they need to get married as soon as possible. They got married in Friar Lawerence's place. Friar says how he wants to make the marrige quick. He also warns them that the marrige might not last. Romeo says that nothing can break their ¨true love.¨

ROMEO KILLS TYBALT

Romeo says, ¨This shall determine that, (They fight, Tybalt falls).

¨Romeo, away, be gone! The citizens are up, and Tybalt slain.¨ (3.1.126-128)


This piece of textual evidence is explaining the fight between Romeo and Tybalt. This all starts out with Mercutio and Tybalt fighting. They fight, and Mercutio ends up dying. Romeo is upset because he lost a friend of his. Romeo then goes to find Tybalt and fights him. Romeo kills Tybalt. This causes many stuggles and bad things between both families. This also affects Romeo and Juliet's relationship.

WHY ROMEO IS AT FAULT

Romeo is at fault for many reasons. The three things I stated are the main reasons why I think Romeo was at fault in the play Romeo and Juliet.

OPPOSING| FRIAR LAWERANCE

Although I think Romeo is at fault, others might think that Friar Lawerence is at fault. A reason that Friar Lawerence could be to blame is because he married Romeo and Juliet, but It was Romeo and Juliet's choice. They confessed their love for eachother. Another reason some may think Frair Lawerence is at fault is the fact that it was his idea to have Juliet drink the potion. That is the reason why they both commited sucicide, but Friar was trying to help and again, Romeo and Juliet made the action of choosing to take their lives.
