Romeo and Juliet

Lord Capulet guilty or not?

Although most people may believe that Friar Laurence is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet, Lord Capulet should actually be the one who is blamed. At the party Tybalt tols Lord Capulet that Romeo was there, but he would not kick him out. He said, “Content thee, gentle coz, let him alone; he bears him like a portly gentleman…” (Act:1 Scene:5). If Lord Capulet would have kicked Romeo out of the party, then Romeo and Juliet probably wouldn't have never had the opportunity to meet. Then they would have never had fallen in love and never got married. Another reason why Lord Capulet should be blamed for their deaths is that he forced Juliet to marry Paris. He told Juliet, “To go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church, or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither” (Act:3 Scene:5). This shows that he should be blamed for the deaths because If Lord Capulet wouldn’t have told Juliet that she had to marry Paris then she wouldn’t be desperate enough to need to kill herself.

The lyrics that I chose from "Run Joey Run" resembles that Lord Capulet should be blamed for Romeo and Juliet's death because the lyrics are showing that the dad is going to kill is daughter's fiance. After he kills him he will be blamed for the death just like Lord Capulet should be blamed for Romeo and Juliet's death.

In Aladdin, Jasmines father tells her that she has to marry a prince. In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet's father tells her that she has to marry Paris. In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet wants to marry Romeo, and in Aladdin, Jasmine wants to marry Aladdin. So in both movies there is a dad who forces their daughter to marry a man that she does not want to marry. Also, Juliet isn't supposed to marry Romeo because he is a Montague. Jasmine isn't supposed to marry Aladdin because he is a peasant, not a prince.
