Examination Questions on Romeo and Juliet
Question: What other tragic elements are there in the play besides the fate of the hero and heroine?
Answer: The feud of the Montagues and Capulets, which, owing to the prominence of these two houses, made it a public calamity, and of which Romeo and Juliet are the innocent victims. The final reconciliation of the Montagues and Capulets which, while
it is not tragic, is full of pathos.
