Unfortunately everything does not go as planned, while the friar was on his way to send the note to Romeo instead of Romeo being informed of her fake death,he actually believes she has passed away. After this, he goes to an apothecary to receive a poisonous concoction he can lay his dead body he is needed in a place of filled with people who are severely ill and stays in quarantine. Romeo believes Juliet is dead and goes to an apothecary to get a poison concoction so he can die and lay next to Juliet. The moment he was in her tomb he poisons himself,such a tragedy Juliet wakes up to a dead Romeo.
This fooled Romeo and made him commit suicide since he believed Juliet had died. Juliet did the same after Romeo died, killing herself out of
Friar Laurence also encouraged Juliet to fake her own death just to get out of her wedding with Paris that her parents arranged for her. Juliet, being young and ignorant, of course agreed that it would work, without contemplating the flaws in the plan. She believed that there was no other way, and that she would rather “[leap] from off the battlements of any tower” (IV,1,78-79), than marry County Paris. A crucial part of this plan included a letter delivered to Romeo informing him, as it was a way for Romeo to see Juliet. The letter was unable to be delivered causing confusion, and Romeo suspected that Juliet actually killed herself.
Friar Lawrence, instead of giving Juliet a potion that made everyone think she was dead, could have hid her in his cell until he could find a way to get her to Romeo. But he gave her that potion and it made Romeo think that his wife was dead. So, he killed himself. After Juliet
Romeo did not know about the arrangement and wasn't given a decent explanation, so he believed Juliet was truly dead. This is shown in Document C, third note, "Now married to Romeo, Juliet asks Friar Laurence to help her avoid marrying Paris. The remedy is Friar Laurence's plan for Juliet to fake her own death." Other evidence was given in Document E, second note, "Friar Laurence is unable to deliver the letter informing Romeo that Juliet is not actually dead." Without proper clarification, Romeo has decided to kill himself by drinking poison.
Stabbed with a white wenches black eye. Shot through the ear with a love song. The very pin of his heart cleft with the blind bow-boys butt-shaft and is he a man to counter Tybalt. 2.4.4" In this quote Mercutio is talking about the anguish that Romeo is in and is saying that someone needs to fight Tybalt because he is in no position to. In this next quote he is offering Romeo his advice on how to deal with his love problems.
While Friar Lawrence was explaining what happened he said “But, as it seems, did violence on herself”(V.III.264). Juliet killed Romeo by pretending to be dead and she helped Romeo feel sad and pushed him to commit suicide, thus, killing them both.
One of the biggest secrets he kept, that became one of his ultimate mistakes, was giving Juliet the potion, plunging her into a fake death coma. As the Capulets mourned her death, the Friar pretended that she was actually dead. His plan failed miserably when others, including Romeo, believed she truly passed away. As a result of Friar’s deception, Romeo killed himself and the Friar’s scheme clearly unraveled horribly. Juliet’s false death put her family and nurse on the verge as they lamented, “Accursed, unhappy, wretched, hateful day!
In William Shakespeare’s timeless play Romeo and Juliet, two star crossed lovers are faced with great adversity as they hide their romance from their feuding families. As author James Lane Allen once said, “Adversity does not build character, it reveals it”. Romeo, a Montague, struggles to hide his love for the Capulet daughter, Juliet, from his family and friends. The challenge of lying to his closest companions, and going against his family’s ways to secretly marry Juliet causes Romeo to act erratically and carelessly. Throughout Act 3 Scene One, Shakespeare exposes the lovestruck Romeo’s mercurial nature and impulsivity through his thoughtless actions.
In the morning, the nurse discovers her and pronounces her dead. Of all the things the Friar has done so far, giving Juliet the poison is the worst of his actions. As the Friar’s plan goes, Romeo did not receive the letter from the servant describing the situation of how Juliet is not dead, only sleeping. Romeo then kills himself when he sees his ‘dead’ wife, and when Juliet rises only to see her dead husband, she ends her life with a
Romeo is very fixated on love, easily heartbroken, and depressed. These traits are more obvious as Mercutio’s humor and his ability to be reasonable lighten the rather dark shadow Romeo carries. Mercutio’s line, “If love be rough with you, be rough with love. Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down.” (I, iv, 27-28)
Mercutio is different from Romeo because he does not believe in love and makes fun of Romeo and falling in love so heavily all the time. When Romeo describes his love for Rosaline using a rose with thorns as a metaphor. Mercutio laughs and says ”If love be rough with you, be rough with love; Prick love for pricking and you beat love down”(I.4.27-28). In another scenario of Romeo and Mercutio’s foils is when Romeo tells his friends about a dream he had about the party and is expecting a disastrous outcome of the party. Mercutio makes fun of Romeo because he does not believe that dreams can become visions of impending danger.
“Romeo is banned from Verona, which leads to him to seek out some pretty bad advice and guidance from Friar Laurence.” (Shmoop.com). The news Romeo receives is that Juliet is dead and in the Capulet's tomb Romeo does not know abou the fact he is supposed to be at Juliet's side when she wakes. Romeo is not aware of Juliet and Friar Lawrence's plan with the potion so in turn he takes his own life thinking Juliet is really dead. When Juliet wakes she finds Romeo dead next to her, she takes Romeo's dagger and stabbed it into her chest killing herself.
Romeo acts as an arbitrator between Tybalt and Mercutio because he understands the repercussions of the impending clash. He tries his best to reason with Tybalt by saying “I do protest, I never injured thee, But love thee better than thou canst devise.” Meaning that he won 't fight because he is related to him through marriage. Tybalt, not knowing of their secret wedding ignores Romeo’s comment, continuing his goading of Mercutio.
He had given Juliet, who was begging for help, a small vial containing the liquid that would fake Juliet’s death. When the time had come, he depended too much on Friar John, and Romeo received the wrong news. Romeo had thought that Juliet was dead and went back to Verona with a bottle of poison to kill himself. Quickly, Friar Lawrence ran to stop him, only to find Romeo dead and Juliet waking up.
