reason of suicide

My reasons:
 All my fears, all my demons are driving me crazy, the loneliness, the rage, the angry, the sadness, Juliet. I can’t live without you, but I can’t live with this guilt of having killed Juliet’s father, I did that she suffered, she cried, and all was my fault, my only fault. I tried but I failed, I can’t live without her, my love, my darling. This wouldn’t happened if I had been more carefully, but at least a good thing go out of this, I stop with the hate, and the descendants of the families will be happy, our story will not repeat. I would like that there has been another ending of my story, a happy one, but I don’t believe in happy endings, Juliet, I love you, I can’t live without you.

Romeo and Juliet as literary historians say was written between 1594 and 1595, is located within the initial period of Shakespeare's literary production, which began around the year 1590. This period was very productive , because before this work had already written four historical dramas as Richard III , Four comedies like “dream of  a night of summer” ; poems “Venus and Adonis” and “Rape of Lucretia” and part of his fifty- four sonnets (1592 - 1597) , opera productions that placed him as a poet and author of extraordinary quality. Shakespeare in this period forges his expressive arms and play with language reaching Romeo and Juliet his first masterpiece and first work of tragedy can be seen that the poet has reached great technical mastery and verbal dramatic moderating the excesses of “euphuism.

Maybe the space more important is the house capuleto, the garden facing the bedroom window of Juliet, where they happen most momentous secret meetings between lovers, there are also consummate their wedding night. Friar Laurence’s cell denotes the desire of the union of Romeo and Juliet in his frantic love, regardless of the location or situation. Mantua the city of Romeo’s exile is presented as a grim and sad figure , perhaps because of the separation from his beloved, the apothecary's shop is presented with a gloomy atmosphere including emaciated owner, as a prelude to the love of Romeo 's suicide .
Finally, the cemetery is the site where the tragic fate outcome of the partnership and carried out, but it also symbolizes the burial of young people, also the burial of hatred between the families.
