There are indeed many variables that have affected this, but I think Romeo himself is responsible for his own death and the one of his wife Juliet.

If he had behaved well and thought before doing whatever he was going to do, everything could’ve been better.

I read the story of Romeo and Juliet and also watched the movies including them in it. I feel like whenever Juliet drank that drink to make her sleep and people thought she was dead that it wasn’t her fault for Romeo killing himself by drinking the poison. That wasn’t Juliet’s fault, someone should have told him that she were asleep instead of really thinking she was dead. Nothing would’ve ever happened if Romeo knew she drank something to make her sleep. Whenever Romeo drank the poison after seeing Juliet laying there she woke up to him killing himself so after he was dead she grabbed his dagger and stabbed herself and she died with him.

Romeo and Juliet one the most famous stories about love by William Shakespeare. Romeo and juliet were a pair of star crossed lovers who were destined to take their lives, for the sake that it will end a feud between their two families. Romeo’s family were the montagues and Juliet’s family were the capulets. If Romeo and juliet wouldn’t of killed themselves for the feud, they wouldn’t of been of happy together. Romeo was so quick to act in every situation, so he couldn’t really control his emotions. Both of them barely knew each other , and they only knew each other for four days and only loved each other for beauty. I don’t even think Romeo and Juliet truly even loved each other.
Many have said that romance brings love and affection, but when taken to the extreme, it can lead to tragedy and despair. In the literary play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare created a tragedy protagonist, Juliet, whose tragic death “buries their parents’ strife” (Prologue). The eternal feud between Montague and Capulets restraints the love between Romeo and Juliet and ultimately lead to their death. Juliet’s death has many different factors, and it’s hard to determine the truly blame of Juliet’s death. In all the important characters, Lord Capulet refuses to listen to Juliet’s request, which result in Juliet’s death. In the other hand, Romeo’s immature, impulsive and Friar Lawrence’s cowardice are all generate Juliet’s tragedy.
In ¨The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet¨,there seems to be the question of who seems most responsible for the deaths in Romeo and Juliet? I’ve come to the idea that it is the prince, Escalus who caused or atleast could’ve stopped these deaths from ever starting to unfold. He was so anonymous of every problem happening and never took charge of the situation until it concluded. He had to ask of benvolio”who began this bloody fray” when Mercutio and Tybalt were dead. He never had men prepared of any casualties that could happen or any men on patrol so no fight broke out in the first place.
There are many people who could’ve been blamed for Romeo and Juliet’s death including Romeo and Juliet’s parents, Friar Laurence, or themselves. Their parents could be blamed because of their feud. It could also be blamed on Friar Laurence because he was the one who gave Juliet the potion without telling Romeo beforehand. However, I think that it could be mainly blamed on Romeo and Juliet because they were so immature with their relationship.
For me, Romeo and Juliet´s death has not just one person to blame. There are some people that could have done things differently to avoid the deaths, but that does not necessarily mean these people has the blame for it. Because most of these people were not aware of the damage they were causing with their actions. So if your action cost two people their life, not on purpose, does it really mean you are the one to blame?
Have you ever wondered whose fault it was for Romeo and Juliet’s suicide? This essay is going to be on the play Romeo and Juliet by Shakespear. If Romeo had not made the choices he did both him and Juliet would be alive in the story, but that’s just my point of view.
