He tells him all about Juliet and how the two are to get married. Friar Laurence believes that Romeo is acting hastily, because only last night he had been heartbroken by Rosaline. Despite his thoughts, Friar Laurence agrees to marry the two teens in hope that the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets will end. “ So smile the heavens…” (Act 2, Scene 6, Line 1) When Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet he did not know that later, because of certain actions in the play the two young kids being married is part of the reason they
First, he married Romeo and Juliet quickly after they met without their parents’ knowledge. Friar Lawrence warned them about moving too fast, but he proved to be a hypocrite when he quickly married them. With this single decision, he became tangled in their mess of miscommunication and passion. The young lovers had a love so strong that it blinded their view of reality
Another major decision that led to the terrible ending of the play is Romeo and Juliet 's decision to keep their love and marriage from the world. A reader can see this when their parents and the prince were unaware of their marriage. This supports the main idea of the essay because perhaps if they new about marriage they could have figured a way to make the feud stop or make it not such a big deal like the friar said it might. If their love wasn 't a secret Romeo and Juliet would have never had to have made a plan to escape from Verona. This is important because they would have never committed suicide if the plan was never made.
He concocts the potion, but this in itself doesn’t contribute to their tragic end but it is fate, in that the letter he wrote never reaches Romeo in Mantua and so he doesn’t know of the Friar’s plan. The Friar is always giving council to Romeo and Juliet and is really only ever helping the two lovers. The only thing wrong he does is to marry Romeo and Juliet just a few days after they meet. This is not good because it is too hasty as he points out when he says, “These violent delights have violent ends.” That is who I believe caused the most
Many people conclude that Friar Lawrence or the parents are at fault but in reality Friar Lawrence just does as Romeo and Juliet ask. The parents are clueless about the fact that their daughter was in love. Romeo and Juliet are responsible for their death because they both had free will and could have chosen their decisions differently. If you
People inflict their own wounds during their life by the choices that they make, however these actions will eventually lead to life's pre-determined fate. I belive that the actions of Romeo & Juliet are primarily based on a pre-determined fate. In the very start of the play, the prolouge predicts Rome and Juliet's life together as having a "star-crossed" conclsion. So right out of the gate we know that Romeo & Juliet's lives had an ill-fated end. Romeo & Juliet could see that there life wasn't going the way that they wanted it to go, because there we're so many barriers put between their love.
The Montague's and the Capuley's have been enemies for some time. This is why it is so shocking when the two become lovers. The power of pre-determined destiny gets the best of them. Shakespeare did not wait to tell the readers that Romeo and Juliet were a part of pre-determined destiny. For example, in the prologue it says "From fourth the fatal loins of these two foes, A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life (Shakespeare prologue)."
Love is a relative term. For one, it may resemble a passion distinct from another. However, regardless of its true definition, a rising demographic has argued of the plausibility behind love at first sight, a heavy reliance throughout Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Thus, it is worth noting that Romeo’s love for Juliet is in fact not true love, as he has forgotten of whom he once thought his only desire, wishes to be married a single day following his encounter, and remains far too young to understand what love truly is. To begin, Romeo and Juliet’s love for one another is not true love because it began not long following Romeo’s grief in regard of Rosaline.
A story of love, cut short by a small part of unfortunate and sad death, as this is the story of Romeo and Juliet. In the play, Romeo and Juliet, there are two lovers that cannot be together because of their families past. In current day, the rivalry has nothing to do with Romeo and Juliet themselves, as it is just an unfortunate coincidence that forbids the two from being with each other. In the play, Romeo at times acts very impulsively to fill his desires, and get what he wants. However, through doing this, he only fixes a situation immediately, and does not fix any issues in the long run of things.
Along with Caliban 's confinement comes Ariel 's. Ariel is imprisoned in the way that he feels obligated to serve Prospero in exchange for saving his life. Prospero promises his freedom, but never actually gives it to him until act 5. Prospero upholds his revenge throughout the play by creating disasters and using Ariel and Caliban to do it. Finally, in the end, Prospero learns that revenge never has and will never be the answer.
