Romeo and Juliet

Lovers from Verona

Who Is Responsible?



The death of juliet is just one of the reasons why the parents should be blamed for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. If Juliet’s parents didn’t make her marry paris Juliet would not have been faking her own death for Romeo. (Act: IV Scene: III) ”Shall I be married then to-morrow morning? No, no: this shall forbid it: lie thou there :laying down her dagger”(Shakespear). Juliet’s parents drove her over the edge so she would die for romeo. juliet’s parents are responsible for the deaths of romeo and juliet because the parents wanted juliet to marry paris if they didn’t want paris to marry juliet then juliet would not be scared and run away.If her parents would stop forcing juliet into everything then this would not have happened. ( Act:III Scene: V )”Marry my child early next thursday morn the gallant young and noble gentleman The County Paris, at Saint Peter’s Church, Shall happily make thee there a joyful bride”(Shakespear). The mother wanted juliet to marry paris so much because paris is such a good person and her parents would be happy for her if she did marry paris.

How the story is related to west side story

I watched west side story in 7th grade and I thought it was pretty similar to Romeo and Juliet because there was two gangs always in a fight in both story's and there was 2 people that died in both movies from both sides.

why did they choose to die

So we all know Romeo and Juliet died at the end, but why didn't they just give up so they don't die. Maybe they thought they would die anyway? or maybe they thought they wouldn't be happy with living without eachother? They didn't want to live without each other, because they knew they wouldn't be happy and they would be killed, punished, or sad.
