Romeo and Juliet There are leaders and there are followers in William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. In the city of Verona there are Capulets and Montagues who are always at a war. The citizens would pick the fights, which leads the Capulets and Montagues to begin a war. Romeo is the son of Lord and Lady Montague. Juliet is the daughter of Lord and Lady Capulet. Prince Escalus of Verona is a leader to his people. That effect is carried out with Lord Capulet in the fact that he follows his leader, the Prince. Lord Capulet's nephew Tybalt is not changed by the words given by his uncle. If Lord Capulet was more of a leader, than I believe that Tybalt would be a follower and a leader because he did not like his uncle's way, but he did stop for his uncle. That doesn't mean that Tybalt was going to cease forever because of his character make-up. William Shakespeare made these characters' traits specifically because of the effect it left on Romeo and Juliet. These characters caused the death of Romeo and Juliet by how they acted and portrayed themselves on each one of them. William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet are killed by the effect of the leading and following performed by Prince Escalus, Lord Capulet, and Tybalt.Prince Escalus of Verona was a leader in the sense of how he portrayed himself amongst his fellow people, which aided in the death of Romeo and Juliet. "Have thrice disturbed the quiet of our streets/ And made Verona's ancient citizens/ Cast by their grave beseeming ornaments/ To wield old partisans, in hands a old, / Cankered with Fromm, 2 peace, to part your cankered hate," (Page 17; lines 99 to 103). The Prince wants peace and thereby being a peace-dweller for his people of Verona. His character is simple and yet it can have some effect on people. He is not very strong-willed in the sense that it has been three city fights, and he can't get them to stop. He may want peace, but he needs more self-confidence in stopping his people from getting into these fights. "If ever you disturb our streets again, / Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace," (Page 17; lines 104 to 105). These two lines are very important to the story. Neither of the old men (Lord Capulet and Lord Montague) wanted to die. So, when the Prince said this threat the two men changed because originally they both wanted to fight. Since they were to die if another fight were to occur Romeo and Juliet would have to avoid the situation, which they tried to accomplish, but failed by the cause of death. Prince Escalus of Verona affected Romeo and Juliet's death by the effect he had on Lord Montague and especially Lord Capulet as a leader.Lord Capulet was changed by Prince Escalus' threat and was a follower that in the end led to the death of Romeo and Juliet, his daughter. He is a very relaxed laid-back kind of a guy. " Young Romeo is it?" (Page 57; line 70) "Therefore be patient, take no note of him," (Page 57; line 78) "He shall be endured," (Page 57; line...
