The Person Responsible for Romeo's Death is Lord Capulet
Transcript of The Person Responsible for Romeo's Death is Lord Capulet
Some may say Capulet wouldn't have been the only one to protest Juliet and Romeo's marriage, but he had the final say in Juliet's life.
Lord Capulet. "Send for the county. Go tell him of this. I'll have this knot knit up tomorrow morning." (IV. ii. 21-22)
If Lord Capulet never moved up the wedding, there would have been more time for the new to travel to Romeo
Many people argue that he was doing it for, what he thought was for the better of the family and he was doing it unintentionally, but it was still his fault for forcing this marriage so suddenly on Juliet
It is Lord Capulet's fault because he is too protective over Juliet
Some people may say that she could have just stood up and told him straight forward how she wanted to marry Romeo and not Paris, however, he was just so overbearing and possessive that she was too nervous to come forward and say it.
Lord Capulet. "Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient wretch!
I tell thee to a church Thursday or never after look me in
the face." (III. v. 180-183)
Lord Capulet. "How, how, how, how? Chopped logic! What is this? 'Proud' and 'I thank you,' and 'I thank you not' and yet 'not proud'? Mistress minion you, thank me no thankings, nor proud me no prouds, but fettle your fine joints 'gainst Thursday next to go with Paris to Saint Peter's Church, or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither. Out you green sickness, Carrion! Out, you baggage! You tallow face!" (III. v. 149-159)
Lord Capulet is Liable for the Young Death of Romeo Montague.
By Lord Capulet being so strict with Juliet, moving up the wedding, and being too protective of Juliet, he led a train of events leading to the death of the young Romeo. If it weren't for Lord Capulet, Juliet would not have been forced to make up an incredibly dangerous plan, leading to Romeo committing suicide.
