Tom T | 11 comments Prince: "If every you disturb our streets again,/Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace. (1.1.98-99) I think that the Prince of Verona used a harsh threat such as death because he is wise enough to realize that only death could possible end the fighting between the Capulets and the Montagues.

Sam | 12 comments I agree with you on this topoic. The prince seems like he just tried to make a quick fix without really solving any problems. It's like taping a leaking pipe, eventually the pipe will start leaking again, you just don't know when.

Richard | 11 comments I disagree, some people die throughout the story, but the fighting doesn't end, it continues.

Ross O | 15 comments It's a good point, because it's true. They even say in the prologue that the death of their children is the only thing that could end their feud, but the death of them would work as well. The Montagues and Capulets would always hate each other unless someone of the families died.
