life but then Juliet awoke just as Romeo was dying and tried to take her life. Romeo only took his friends word for Juliet being dead and did not consult anyone else. If he had've consulted the friar he might have been able to save hisown life and save Juliet's life too.Juliet can also be put into context considering Romeo & Juliet's deaths. May Juliet have considered being so rash in considering faking her own death she might have had a chance to save them both. If Juliet had just refused to marry Paris outright and been disowned she may have been able to live a peaceful life with Romeo out in the desert.Tybalt can be blamed quite a bit for both Romeo & Juliets deaths. Tybalt wanted to consort with Romeo, But instead was stirred by Mercutio who was hence killed under Romeo's arm, Causing Romeo to become vengeful and angry. Hence Romeo killed Tybalt and that caused Romeo to be banished. Thus this lead to the fake death of Juliet and they both died as a consequence.

The Blame for Romeo and Juliet's Death
The story of Romeo and Juliet originally came from a myth around the
old town of Verona, later on in history Shakespeare took this idea of
'two star-crossed lovers' and made it into the 'Romeo and Juliet' we
know today. In Elizabethan Verona the story begins with two families,
the Capulets, and the Montagues. The families have been feuding for
many years, much to the dismay of the Prince of the town. The Capulet
family has only one child, Juliet. The rest of the Capulet family
consists of Old Capulet – Juliet’s father, Lady Capulet – Juliet’s
mother, Tybalt – Juliet’s cousin and Juliet's Nurse. The Montague

They were to young to be getting married under such pressure. Their youth meant they acted without thinking, if they had only thought they would have seen there was no way for them to survive together with no support of families.Montague and Capulet only started the fighting they didn't make Romeo and Juliet get involved; they are only part to blame, they can't take full responsibility for Romeo and Juliet's downfall. Balthasar was only trying to be a friend to Romeo therefore he is not to blame. Juliet's Nurse was convinced by Juliet's passion therefore she is not to blame. Friar Lawrence was only thinking for good therefore he is not to blame. Romeo and Juliet rushed into a situation that would never work without any thinking causing many deaths and great hurt. Therefore they are the only ones who can take full responsibility for their downfall.

Let's see for means. O mischief thou art swift to enter in the thoughts of desperate men. I do remember an apothecary(34-37), tells of how Romeo heard of Juliet's death and decides that he can't live without her and so he will kill himself to be with her. This passage shows again how the Romeo and Juliet could have been at fault for their own deaths. There are many to blame for the deaths, the parents, Friar Lawrence, and Romeo and Juliet, but each has its own good qualities of why it could be those people. It is really a personal decision on who is at fault and how you view the book. But either way, someone is to blame and it is not pure fate.

Many have said that romance brings love and affection, but when taken to the extreme, it can lead to tragedy and despair. Among the great literary tragedies, Romeo and Juliet may be the most famous of them all. The eternal feud between the Montegues and Capulets prohibits the love of Romeo and Juliet and ultimately results in their unfortunate deaths. It may be difficult to truly determine who is to blame for the tragedy, because their lives had been influenced, criticized, and controlled by many figures. Among the most important characters, Friar Lawrence enables the forbidden marriage of the two lovers and devises a plan to ensure that they end up together. On the other hand, Lord and

Peer pressure also played a role in Neil's death, as if it weren't for his friends he would not have been part of the Dead Poets Society and although he would still have been under Keating's influence he would not have had as much support from his friends to defy his father and pursue acting.Keating was a Romantic. Free thinking and individuality was what he drilled into his students, but he wasn't careful, he did not teach his students caution and this led to many undesired results, like Neil dying and Charlie getting expelled. In another era, in another school his teachings may have fitted in, but Welton was not the place for a teacher like Keating, he was too against the grain. As with everything in life there is never any one person to blame and in DPS nothing is different, Neil's parents and friends also unknowingly helped steer Neil to his early death.

The first group that deserves the most blame in the death of Romeo and Juliet, is the House of Montague. Throughout the story, the Montagues play a major role in the conflict between Romeo’s and Juliet’s family. In the story there is no explicit rationale given to justify the hatred of the Capulet family, showing that this rivalry is out of pure ignorance and aggression, a conflict that can easily be discharged. An excerpt from Act 1 shows us that the Montagues are looking for any excuse to battle the Capulets, through their ancient quarrels. “Who set this ancient quarrel new abroach?/ Speak, nephew, were you by when it began?” (I.i.92-93).

The story people adore; Romeo falls for Juliet and they get married. They are forced into hiding which leads to Juliet pretending to be dead. The love struck Romeo kills him self, when Juliet awakes to actually kill herself, a fantasized love story. However another side to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet tragedy that fans don't look at is who is responsible. The dominant male characters, Friar Laurence, Lord Capulet, and Romeo are most at blame for the story.
Friar Laurence's immature actions make him part of the tragedy. For one, he married Romeo and Juliet. When told that Romeo loves Juliet, Friar replies, "Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here! /Is Rosaline, that thou didst love so

If he had sincerely never contemplated becoming king then the witches are responsible for giving him thoughts of regicide.

The ambition and drive must be real, stored deep inside, hidden from others but still remembered.As a warrior Macbeth is cold-hearted in his killing, slaughtering countless in battle without hesitation.

Due with the teens’ deaths, Prince Escalus of Verona leaves off the audience with the most stressed quote, “All shall be punished”.

I have chosen Friar Lawrence because he was the one who assisted Romeo and Juliet when they wanted to get married without their parent's agreement. He only married the two lovers because he thought it would have a positive impact on their family's feud. "In one respect I'll thy assistant be: For this alliance may so happy prove.

, contributed to this tragic ending, I believe that Lord Capulet and Benvolio are the most to blame, for their lack of sentiments and betrayals.
While it might seem that everybody is at fault for the death of Romeo and Juliet, I believe that Lord Capulet played a big part in this. Some people think that Paris should be blamed, for loving Juliet and wanting to marry her, but, you can’t control love and nobody should be blamed for loving someone. He likes a girl, so of course he will try to be with her. On the other hand, it was Lord Capulet who agreed to this marriage and forced his young daughter to marry Paris. “How, how, how, how?

where close to England. Essentially it’s a story of a big feud covered up with a love story, or maybe a lust story. Romeo was completely in love with this girl named Rosaline, then he changed his mind right after meeting Juliet. Rather than love, it’s lust. So who to blame? The society, the culture of their own. And there is no way to blame a single person to simply explain the story, it is crucial that the world back then was not peaceful and full of equality(still could be a challenge these days). Who is really responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death? Or what is the play really about? Perhaps it cannot be simply answered by a person’s name.

Has it become cool to be overweight or is it still something that is frowned upon? Today, more and more children are considered to be obese. A child becomes obese when he weights nearly 20% in excess of what he should weight at a specific age. Childhood obesity has become rampant in the United States of America since it has affected nearly one out of a group of six children. Some would argue that the fast food industry and school lunches are to blame for childhood obesity because each of these offers unhealthy food choices, and children do not have a fair chance of eating healthy.

Parental rejection is also found to be more frequent in a sibling incest group than in a non-sibling group (Walsh & Krienert, 2011). A substantial proportion of parents of sibling incest offenders had themselves been victims of sexual and/or physical abuse; this could partly explain the dysfunction in many of these families (Busquet, Leveille, & Feron, 2009) and that a lack of parental involvement makes it possible to act out without being detected. Different kinds of abusive behaviors between siblings can also be described as a triadic affair, including the parents as reinforcing or seeing the abuse

In the play Macbeth, written by William Shakespeare there is many people to blame for the downfall of Macbeth. There is an argument that there are more individuals at fault then just Macbeth. Though Macbeth was the one who followed through with all the decisions, it clearly descripts in the play that Lady Macbeth and the witches play major roles that helps lead up to Macbeths downfall. It shows that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth have a strong ambition and greed to be king and queen. But, there is a case that all Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and the witches all have blame as to what happened.

“Frankenstein”, one of the key texts in modern literature, was written by Mary Shelley in 1818 when she was only 21. The novel was first published anonymously, and the author was only later revealed to be Shelley. When she republished the book in 1831, with changes to the story, Shelley had finally answered the question she had been asked several times: how could such a young girl write about such horrible things? Her answer describes her literary sources, as well as a disturbing dream that was the kernel of inspiration for the story. “Frankenstein” is a tale about a man named Victor Frankenstein who creates life out of ‘raw materials’.

Sophocles‘ Oedipus Rex tells the story of a monarch named Oedipus who becomes the unfortunate victim of circumstances beyond his control.

Laurence did not see the destructiveness of Romeo and Juliet's marriage. Instead he continued to attempt to keep Romeo and Juliet together. The plan he concocted for this, however, was shortsighted, poorly thought out, and risky. Friar Laurence devised the plan in haste and in desperation because Juliet was there in the friar’s presence threatening suicide rather than marry Paris. “Unless thou tell me how I may prevent it. / If, in thy wisdom thou canst give no help, / Do but call my resolution wise, / And with this knife I'll help it presently" (4.1.51-54).

Abigail Williams sends the town into a state of hysteria by accusing men and women of practicing the satanic art of witchcraft. Abigail’s flaws - her lustful desire for John Proctor, her deceptive habit of lying in order to retain her good name in the town, and her selfishness and obsessive aspiration for power – led her to be ultimately responsible for the catastrophe of the witch hunt in Salem.

No one knows what would happen in the future, but it is your responsibility for every action you take, and remember the consequence of it. “Romeo and Juliet” teaches us that don’t make rash decision and take everything slowly. If Romeo and Juliet did take things slowly, what would happen? Would it be happily ever after?
