Ultimately, Lord Capulet and his wife should be held responsible for the untimely and tragic demises of Romeo and their daughter Juliet as they were very oppressive, caused violent tendencies with their stubborn nature, and they did not generally care about Juliet’s emotions or opinions. In the inevitably tragic play “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare, we are introduced to two young, “star crossed lovers” who are incredibly naive and unlucky. The two were incredibly determined to make their relationship work despite the feuds between their respective families. However, while their love was true and intense, it wasn’t entirely at fault when it comes to their deaths. While the relationship may not have worked as Romeo is dramatic and…show more content…
