In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt was the enforcer of the story and always tried to stir up more chaos in the feud between the Montagues and Capulets. An example of this can be found in Act 1, when the Capulet’s party is going on, when Tybalt senses Romeo, he ends up getting very defensive and angry, “This, by his voice, should be a Montague, / Fetch me my rapier, boy. . . Now, by the stock and honor of my kin, / To strike him dead I hold it not a sin” (5.52-57). Tybalt’s quick and unthoughtful actions make him a hot-headed character who is very easy to dislike. With Tybalt’s previous actions, the story leaned toward the idea that he was going to cause a damaging and lethal event to happen, which he indeed did. After spotting Romeo at the Capulet party, Tybalt felt disrespected and was livid, due to this, he challenged Romeo to a duel. When they both meet up on the street, Romeo attempts to make peace with Tybalt and to end all disagreements between the two. However, Tybalt is there to cause drama and he declines, stating that Romeo’s request “shall not excuse the injuries / that thou hast done to me” (3.1.61-62). Tybalt’s rejection of Romeo’s request led to his own death as well as Mercutio’s. Another consequence of these actions was Romeo’s banishment from Verona, which ended up
Tybalt could also be held accountable for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Tybalt's nasty, hot-headed persona caused a lot of strife as he always started brawls and quarrelled with the Montagues. When Tybalt gets in a fight with Mercutio, despite the Prince's orders to
The hot-blooded and furious Tybalt had a grudge against Romeo, which inevitably led to a series of misfortunes, and in the end, the two protagonists died. He had held that
Romeo’s love for Juliet caused the deaths of Tybalt and Mercutio. If Romeo had not fallen in love with Juliet, her cousin, Tybalt, would not have been angry at Romeo and wanted to kill him. Tybalt would not have killed Mercutio and Romeo would not have had to kill Tybalt in return. Romeo cannot fight Tybalt because his wife, Juliet, is a Capulet, “...But love thee better than thou canst devise Till thou shalt know the reason of my love and so, good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as my own, be satisfied” (Shakespeare 3.1.66-69). This quote proves Romeo’s love for Juliet is so strong he resisted fighting Tybalt because he now loves the Capulet name, which caused Mercutio’s death as well.
In the play, Tybalt has a large influence on the death of Romeo and Juliet. He helps contribute to their deaths because he kills Mercutio and Romeo in turn kills Tybalt which causes Romeo to be banished from Verona. Then Juliet tells “Romeo is banished!” “There is not end no limit, measure, bound. In that word’s death: no words can that woe sound.” (Act III Scene II 128-130) If Romeo had taken the time to think before killing Tybalt he would not have killed him and therefore he would not be
One way that Tybalt is responsible for his own death, is his impulsive actions. Tybalt angrily says “Boy, this shall not excuse the injuries That thou hast done me. Therefore turn and draw” (3.1.65-66). He thinks that Romeo has done him wrong, and causes Tybalt to want to fight him. Tybalt was quick to act, before thinking about the ending result. If he would have thought about his actions when he got angry, he might not have ever been put in this
Romeo wants revenge and fights with Tybalt. In this fight, Romeo kills Tybalt. When Romeo realizes the consequences of his actions, he says that he is “Fortune’s fool” (3.1.142). He believes that he has no control over the killings of Mercutio and Tybalt. However, these events are caused by his own rashness. Romeo chooses to fight with Tybalt and even starts the fight. Romeo fights to avenge his friend’s death. Romeo’s actions are rash because he does not consider the results of his actions. Romeo could resolve the conflict in some nonviolent way, but his mind is fixed on killing Tybalt. Romeo is exiled from Verona because he kills Tybalt. His rashness causes problems for his own family as well as for the Capulets and for the Prince. Romeo’s rashness in killing Tybalt leads to his killing himself.
Tybalt is responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because he doesn't like Romeo and is always trying to start a fight with him. Tybalt states “ Romeo, the love i bear thee can afford no better term than this: thou art a villian.... Boy this shall not excuse the injuries that thou hast done to me; therefore turn and draw “ ( 145 ). In act 3 when Tybalt is trying to pick a fight again Romeo responds with patience and love but when Mercutio steps in everything starts heading downhill. Romeo tries to stop the fight which consequently leads to Mercutio's death. Romeo, full of rage kills Tybalt in return and this is what leads to his banishment. As a result of Tybalt's foolishness he is dead and Romeo has to now suffer the banishment. The banishment is the final straw for Romeo so when he hears Juliet is dead he already isn't thinking straight and doesn't have Friar to turn to this
First, in act one, scene one, Tybalt draws his sword and challenges Benvolio in the courtyard of Verona. Meanwhile, Benvolio consults with Tybalt. He is only trying to keep the peace, whether that meant to convince Tybalt to put away his sword, or help and use it to stop the fight in the courtyard between the Montagues and the Capulets, the two houses. Second, during the ball that Lord Capulet arranged for Juliet, Tybalt saw Romeo with Juliet. Tybalt tells his servant to fetch his rapier. Third, Tybalt delivers a letter to Romeo challenging him to a duel because he went to the ball and was dancing with Juliet, a Capulet. “This by his voice, should be a Montague, fetch me my rapier boy. What dares to slave. Come hither, covered with an antic face, to flee and scorn at our solemnity? Now, by the stock and honor of my kin, to strike him dead I hold it not a sin.” (I, vi, 56-61). Tybalt tells his page to get his sword. Tybalt wants to honor his family by killing Romeo, a Montague. Given these points, Tybalt’s aggressive attitude leads to Romeo’s banishment of
The next quote tells about the fight he engages in with Romeo right after killing Mercutio which was completely pride driven and could’ve and should’ve been avoided. Tybalt yells, “Thou, wretched boy, that didn’t consort him here shalt with him hence.” As Romeo was clearly beyond consoling after Tybalt had just killed Mercutio, it would be considered highly indolent to engage in a brawl. However, because of his unwavering pride, he participated in the fight leading to his demise. If he had just taken a step back and used his common sense he might not have died so quickly and ruined everything. However he didn’t ruin everything right then and there, he was the reason Romeo got so mad and was able to defeat
One reason Tybalt is liable for his own death is because of his anger issues. One way that he shows this is when he says “Romeo, the hate I bear thee can afford no better term than this: thou art a villain.” (3.1. 59-60). Essentially Romeo explains to Tybalt that he has no reason for them to fight because he loves and cherishes the Capulet name more than he knew, and has never done anything to harm or injure him. Tybalt has no idea that his cousin, Juliet, and Romeo are now married which would make them related as well, he thinks that hating Romeo is a good enough reason for them to dual. As a result of Tybalt getting angry and offended at everything, he is the reason for his
From the beginning Mercutio was with the Montagues and Tybalt was a kinsman to the Capulets. This sword fight between the two did not only prove fatal to Mercutio and Tybalt, but also to Romeo and Juliet. The prince, before this fight, had declared that the next person that starts a quarrel with the other house shall be put to death. Benvolio knew this
Tybalt is responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet. It all started when Tybalt wanted to kill Romeo when he innocently showed up at the party. When Tybalt discovered Romeo was attending the party he declared to Lord Capulet, “It fit’s when such a villain is guest. I’ll not endure him” (1.5.82-83). Tybalt's constant anger and urge to murder Romeo would lead to the banishment of Romeo and the separation of Romeo and Juliet. Following this, Tybalt challenges Romeo to a fight, even after the Price announces his new no fighting laws. After insulting Romeo, Tybalt demands him to “turn and draw” (3.1.70). If Tybalt wouldn’t have challenged Romeo to a fight, Romeo wouldn’t have been banished and Romeo and Juliet could have been happily married.In
First of all, Romeo did not have to kill Tybalt, because the Prince was going to kill him anyway, as a punishment for murdering Mercutio. I can see how some people think Romeo did the right thing by killing Tybalt. Tybalt did murder Romeo’s best friend. If Romeo would not have killed Tybalt, he wouldn’t have
