The only theme that tragedy reveals is that the noble and good must suffer There is no lesson we can draw from tragedy that will help us avoid the fate of the protagonist It is known that in Shakespeares tragedies the main characters die in the end Romeo and Juliet being a tragedy sets up a situation where we know that Romeo and Juliet are going to die in the end There are many events that lead to their deaths The Capulets and Montagues share the responsibility for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because of each familys stubborn refusal to end an enduring feud If their feud could have been resolved the children of each family would not have shared this terrible fate Friar Lawrence was also partially to blame through his actions in trying to help the couple At the end of the story the Prince is the only character who reminds everyone the reality of how Romeo and Juliets death occurred because of everyones faults Romeo and Juliet didnt even try to tell their parents Lord and Lady Montague and Lord and Lady Capulet about love between they shared for each other because they were afraid that their parents wouldnt understand them Perhaps the families would have understood the problem is we dont know because Capulet and Montague learned about their childrens love when they were already dead If Romeo and Juliet were comfortable with telling their parents of their marriage then there would have been fewer complications regarding the marriage with Paris If it wasnt for the hostility between the two families then they wouldnt have cost Romeo and Juliet their lives The masque was the most important part of the story Romeo was wearing a mask to hide his face Since Juliet couldnt see his face
