    ?It is not so much the central characters of the play, Romeo and Juliet themselves, as the minor characters that are responsible for their tragic end.? I agree with this analysis to a high extent, but have also considered the other possible reasons why they died. The most commonly seen reason for Romeo?s and Juliet?s downfall would be the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues. However, the over-looked, minor characters play an important role in the downfall of Romeo and Juliet. They were constantly pushing them into secrecy and forcing them to construct

    In this piece of coursework I am going to be analysing who was to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Before I start to analyse the death of Romeo and Juliet, I would like to tell you a little bit about the background of the play. Both Shakespeares life and the story of Romeo and Juliet took place during the same time period, which since the nineteenth century has been known as the term Renaissance. The word renaissance originates from the french language literally meaning rebirth. Renaissance denotes a revival and redirection of artistic and intellectual endeavour which began in Italy i

    How Far Do You Agree That Romeo And Juliet Are Doomed From The Outset How Does Shakespeare Suggest This To His Audience

    Romeo and Juliet' is thought to have been written in 1595 or 1596. The story was adapted by Shakespeare but it is his version that is known to old and young the world over. It is a tragic story of forbidden love. The whole episode of Romeo and Juliet's meeting, falling in love, marriage, and tragic end, takes place within five days. In the Prologue we are presented with a brief summary of the play. Strangely, the summary includes mention of the tragic ending. This begs the question 'why?' - why would Shakespeare want us to know the ending before we have even watched the play? Nobody knows the

    The Power Of Fate For Two Star Crossed Lovers

    The Power of Fate The famous T.E. Lawrence of Arabia once said, “Many men would take the death sentence without a whimper to escape the life sentence which Fate carries in her hand”. Many believers of fate know this to be true – for what fate can have planned may be far worse than the ultimate sacrifice, death. Though most people today do not believe in the power of fate, in the Elizabethan era, it was very common to do so. Shakespeare, the author of The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, lived during this time period, and he portrays fate as an antagonist of the play. Throughout the entire play, R

    Tap Dancing Tap dance was developed in the United States during the nineteenth century, and is popular nowadays in many parts of the world. The name comes from the tapping sound made when the small metal plates on the dancer's shoes touch a hard floor. This lively, rhythmic tapping makes the performer not just a dancer, but also a percussive musician (and thus, for example, the American composer Morton Gould was able to compose a "concerto for tap dancer and orchestra").

Instead, the deaths of Romeo and Juliet could have been down to any of the people in the play, as everyone contributed in one way or another. Was it down to their families and their feud?
