Romeo And Juliet Critical Analysis

             There are many people to place blame on for the death of Romeo and Juliet. It was a situation where their own impulsiveness played a major role but others meddling in their lives and constant feuding was a huge part of it as well. The feuding of the Capulet's and Montague's, the meddling of Friar and Nurse, and Romeo and Juliet's habit of reacting without thinking were the major reasons of their own death.

(I, V, 60-63) Though it wasn't expressed as much the Montague's despised the Capulet's as they did them. Mercutio states before his death that all of the fighting between the two families has been nonsense and it must stop. "A plague a' both houses! I am sped, is he gone and hath nothing?" (III, I, 88-89)
