Blame for Romeo and Juliet’s Death
In my opinion, the blame goes to the characters that supported and didn’t support Romeo and Juliet. Especially, Lord Capulet, Lady Capulet, Friar Lawrence, Nurse and fate. Juliet’s parents have an important role for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. As the mother of Juliet, Lady Capulet is meant to comfort Juliet. Instead of doing that, she abandons Juliet in the middle of suffering. Lord Capulet acted harsh when Juliet expressed her opinion over Paris. Both of Juliet’s parents deserted her in a challenging situation. Friar Lawrence tried to bring an end to the grudge between the two families by helping Romeo and Juliet get married. His advice to Juliet to deceive her parents and the solution he provided her against the wedding with Paris leads to unmanageable events. Also, his late arrival on the graveyard leads to the death of Romeo followed by Juliet’s death. The Nurse has been chiefly responsible for Juliet. The result of her training is shown in the freedom with Juliet expresses thoughts and emotions that girls usually keep secret. The Nurse is a messenger between carrying messages from Juliet to Romeo. She helped Juliet to communicate to Romeo with out knowing Juliet’s parents. Nurse didn’t like Juliet marrying Romeo and she encouraged Juliet to marry the rich and handsome, County Paris. Both, Romeo and Juliet believe in fate. Whatever happens to them, they think it is all fate’s game. Fate kept Juliet from waking up after Romeo arrived, that made them to be separated forever.
