Рe is the courageous captain of compliments. He fights s you sing prick-song keeps time, distance, and proportion; rests me his minim rest, one, two, and the third in your bosom: the very butcher of a silk button, a idealist, a idealist; a gentleman of the very first house, of the first and second cause,” (24. 26) In scene 1 act 1 Rioting has broken out between the two families, Table must be held responsible for turning down an offer of peace from the Montages, “What, drawn, and talk of peace!
I hate the word, As I hate hell, all Montages, and thee: Have teethe, coward! ” (1.
1. 72) However following the riot Table and indeed all Capsules and Montages are sued a warning that if violence is broken out again someone will pay the price “If ever you disturb our streets again, Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace. ” (1 . 1. 97) In this Table does receive a warning so although he can be blamed for exacerbating a fight in act 1 scene 1 he cannot be further punished.
Some would believe that Table does not really listen to the Princes warning which shows a lack of respect for authority which is all part of the reason that the Capsules and the Montages are fighting anyway since, in Act 3 scene 1 Table comes back to fight Romeo but in truth Table is not trying to disturb he peace, he is merely trying to win his own back on Romeo. When Romeo, Meretricious, Benevolent and several other Montages Gatecrash the Capsule party they are merely doing it out of fun but to Table it is an act of dishonor, he even tries to attack Romeo during the party, “This, by his voice, should be a Montague.
Fetch me my rapier, boy. What dares the slave Come hither, covered with an antic face, To fleer and scorn at our solemnity? Now, by the stock and honor of my kin, To strike him dead, I hold it not a sin. ” (1. 5. 59) but is prevented by Capsule who is feeling generous, when Table challenges IM Capsule knows that the worst penalty he can dish out is to hurt his honor so he treats Table Like a naughty boy, “He shall be endured: What, Goodman boy! I say, he shall: go to; Am I the master here, or you? Go to. You’ll not endure him! God shall mend my soul!
You’ll make a mutiny among my guests! You will set cook-a-hoop! You’ll be the man! ” (1. 5. 81) This leads Table to blame his punishment on Romeo and decides to fight him to also restore his honor When Romeo doesn’t respond to the letter that Table sends to Romeo issuing him a challenge Table sees this as even more of a dishonor and now is furious, The fight that took place between Mercuric and Table cannot be entirely blamed on Mercuric. Table must shoulder some of the blame, as he was the one that confronted them, making rude comments about Romeo “thou art a villain. (3. 1. 61) “Therefore turn and draw. ” (3. 1. 67) The second quote is when Table challenges Romeo to a sword fight, this is when Mercuric steps in and Table is more than happy to fight and defeat him. To make matters worse, Table comes back to where he has just killed Mercuric, after he realizes that no one knows what has happened (except for the people that were there) and challenges Romeo again. This time Romeo, citing on behalf of his dead best friend tries to get revenge by agreeing to fight with Table.
This is where Romeo becomes the one to blame. If Romeo had accepted that his friend was dead then he would not have killed Table and instead gone to mourn over Mercuric. This would have meant that Table would have been punished instead of Romeo. In conclusion I believe that Table is in fact just a man raised with the idea that Montages are inferior and Capsules superior, although he has a prejudice against the Montages I don’t think that he is to blame for what happened because he does not intentionally try to cause suffering.
