Who is to blame for the death of the star crossed lovers.
Depends on how you look at it and what you regard as the decisive moment. In purely practical terms, the daft plan with the poison was Friar Lawrence's idea, although if that other friar hadn't been delayed because of the plague, Romeo would have known about it, so I suppose you could also blame Black Death / dramatic irony / the author.
On the other hand, you could also argue that Romeo would have been around for a straightforward elopement (much easier to arrange and much less dangerous than poisoning Juliet in order to fake her death) if he hadn't been stupid enough to kill Tybalt, so he's at least partly to blame for the whole mess. Though if you want to go back even further, Tybalt also deserves a share of the blame for killing Mercutio and turning a play that was set up like a comedy into a tragedy.
Or you could blame the families for quarreling with each other, the prince for being such an inefficient ruler he can't put a stop to the quarrelling, or teenage hormones for making two young people who barely even know each other go crazy just because they had a good time together at a party.
Take your pick.:p:
