Who is Responsible for the Tragic Deaths of Romeo and Juliet
'Romeo and Juliet', a tragedy written by William Shakespeare in the 16th
Century all about two strong hearted teenagers in the city of Verona
in Italy who fall in love with each other as 'star crossed lovers'.
The two young teenagers of feuding families were destined to fall in
love, however many problems occur to the extent of suicide, that
affect their relationship, one of the main factors is the feud between
their two families.
Juliet is a Capulet and Romeo is a Montague. The play gives an image
of the desperate love between Romeo and Juliet and the violence

for him instantly. Juliet falls in love with Romeo and asks him to
marry her. Juliet's parents, Lord Capulet and Lady Capulet want her to
marry Paris, a young Capulet. Juliet does not like the idea of this,
and when Romeo and Juliet are together she is very worried her parents
will find out. Juliet blames herself for things that go wrong in their
relationship, "Prodigious birth of love is to me," unlike Romeo who
When this play was written, like Macbeth, people believed in fate,
fortune, chance and other beliefs similar to this. Shakespeare has
written the play in a way where people believe that the fortune, fate
and chance affect Romeo and Juliet, and emotion and happiness is in
the stars. Romeo believes that fortune is affecting his relationship
with Juliet and his happiness, he says, "O, I am fortune's fool."
Juliet's parents, Lord Capulet and Lady Capulet believe that Juliet
should, "Marry, that is the very theme." This explains that Lord and
Lady Capulet want Juliet to get married. Lady...
