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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Even though Shakespeare’s tragic hero Macbeth commits heinous deeds throughout the entire drama, he is unfairly influenced by several elements within the play. For instance, I blame not only Macbeth, but also the characters of Lady Macbeth, the witches, and the three apparitions for his tragic downfall.

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).

of the feud between the two families when two Montague's are
approached by Tybalt, and other Caplets, and a quarrel begins. The
play eventually results in suicide for the two young lovers and shows
how love can eventually end in a tragic mess. I believe that Romeo and
Juliet's death was needless because it was not themselves to blame
for, but the selfishness of their families and other people around
them. The hatred, quarrelling and feud between the two families made
their life unhappy because they could not lead a happy life,

Romantic love stories are often ended with a tragedy, because of loss of passion or a loved one. These tragedies are often the result of one person’s actions that ended someone’s life or love.

Unfortunately their love comes to an end, along with their lives, because of a misunderstanding and a persistent feud between their families.

Many aspects of Romeo and Juliet's lives were complete acts of fate, and fate was largely responsible for the outcome of each situation. Fate was directly involved with the young lovers' meeting, separation and final downfall.Firstly, it was necessary for Romeo and Benvolio to come across Capulet's servant and be informed of the grand party because this is where Romeo would meet Juliet.

Tybalt kills Mercutio. Romeo, who is enraged from his close friend’s death, fights Tybalt and kills him. When Lady Capulet sees that Tybalt is dead she cries out, "Tybalt, my cousin!

He begs Friar to wed them that day "But this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today" (A2S3L61-62). Romeo is extremely hasty to marry Juliet because he has never before had anyone return his affections, and if they get married quickly there is less chance of anyone ruining their plans.

Who is most responsible for King Duncan’s death and Macbeth’s downfall?
The play ’Macbeth’ was written by William Shakespeare in 1606, although it was set in Scotland, around 1040. Shakespeare was the most famous playwright of his time, even though none of his work was published until seven years after his death in 1616. This essay will help to explain who is most to blame for the death of King Duncan, which started the series of events that lead to Macbeth’s death in the play.
Macbeth was favoured in that time as a play to be acted out, and not as a play to be read, and this is why even though his work was being used in many theatres at the time, none of his work was ever published

Juliet's Evolvement Throughout William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare's earliest tragedies. The
character in question, Juliet Capulet, is arguably the most intriguing
character in the play. The daughter of Lord and Lady Capulet, one of
the richest families in the setting of Verona, her life should have
been one of comfort and pleasure, but this is not to be, as the
introductory prologue tells us. Amid the tale of fierce family feuds
and 'star-cross'd lovers', she develops from an immature and compliant
girl, naive even for her young age of thirteen, to a defiant and
resolute young woman, passionately in love with
