Romeo and Juliet

by: Logan Hallet

Who is at fault

I think Romeo is most at fault because he knows he shouldn't go to the party but he still does, then when he is at the party he kisses Juliet. Finally he kills Tybalt.

Reason one

Shakespeare writes,"Now I'll tell you without asking. My master is the great rich Capulet; and if you be not of the house Montagues., I pray come and crush a cup of wine"(1.2.81-83).

Reason two

Shakespeare writes,“These violent delights have violent ends. And in their triumph die, like fire and powder Which, as they kiss, consume”(1.5.123-124)

Reason three

Benvolio shouts,"Romeo, away, be gone!The citizens are up, and Tybalt slain"(3.1.128-129)

People might say Juliet is most at fault.

These are the reasons she is not the person most at fault. First off she is just at the party and nothing would have happened at the party until Romeo decided he was going to go to a party he wasn't invited to. If he would have just stayed home that night he would have never met Juliet and Juliet would have married paris later on in life. Then they kiss because romeo likes to take things a little to fast not because Juliet wanted to but he convinced her. Finally he killed Tybalt. They could have just announced there marriage and everything could have been fine but he had to get angry and kill him.
