As a Friar, Friar Lawrence does not use his ability and skills wisely to marry the madly in love couple. He assumed that marrying the teenage Romeo and Juliet would stop the long-lasting feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I’ll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” (Shakespeare, 2.3) Not only did Friar Lawrence irresponsibly marry Romeo and Juliet after the naïve

In a romantic comedy, two people will fall in love at first sight, with everything working out at the end. However, this is not possible in a tragedy. The tragedy Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare tells the tale of a couple’s forbidden love and how it leads to many consequences, which are caused by impulsive decisions. One consequence is the couple having to hide their love from their families and friends. Another is the deaths of Mercutio and Tybalt.
Towards the beginning of the play, Benedick and Claudio came to Messina. Benedick claimed to hate everything that had to do with love. He would even argue with individuals about marriage and relationships. Benedick had to be persuaded by Don Pedro, Claudio and Leonato that Beatrice loves him. His friend, Claudio, was the exact opposite; he fell in love with Hero as soon as he laid his eyes on her.
However, when Ariel saves Prince Eric and falls in love with him, the King is furious and burns her collection of artefacts to assure she plays the stereotypical female role, instead, of trying to be a hero because it is an animus trait. The roles of gender as a social construction are evident because men want solutions to conflicts that arise. King Triton could have let Ariel live her dream life earlier in the film by giving her legs with his trident, though he did not want her to go near humans. The King is the only one with a trident, proving the lack of power women have because he can do anything and make the female puppets to please him. For instance, King Triton is furious when Ariel goes missing during the concert and forbids her from going to shore.
Whether the Friar realizes it or not, he has just done something terrible that only strengthens the bond of these two lovers. This leads to several deaths along the way. This bond between Romeo and Juliet, fortified by Friar Lawrence and his hubris, causes a serious issue when Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, challenges Romeo to a duel. Romeo refuses to fight as they are now family by marriage and says, “… But love thee better than thou
In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, he tells the story of two people who fall in love, Romeo, a Montague, and Juliet, a Capulet. Their families have been feuding for as long as they can remember, making their love for one another very dangerous. The two go to extreme lengths to be with each other, but this eventually results in both of them losing their lives. Throughout this story, Shakespeare conveys through his use of syntax and diction with wrathful tone that hatred can make people act irrationally loyal, and this hatred can cloud one’s morals. We first see Shakespeare demonstrate the dangers that come from fighting without proper reason in the very beginning between the characters Tybalt and Benvolio.
There are a few similarities between Don Pedro and Don John as well as numerous differences, drawing in the reader to think about the relationship between the two. Don Pedro and Don John share a royal father, but have separate mothers, making them half-brothers. Don Pedro is the prince of Arragon, but his brother Don John, being a bastard child is a second-class citizen. “I had rather be a canker in a hedge, than a rose in his grace” (Shakespeare 1.3.21-2), Don John says of his brother, introducing his desire to cause discord in their relationship. Don John attempts to destroy the lives and reputations of everyone he comes in contact with.
Don John decides to meddle with Hero and Claudio’s blooming relationship, resulting in a disaster. Through the mishaps in love, Shakespeare emphasizes outsiders’ influence can determine whether a relationship will fail or flourish. Benedick and Beatrice cannot stand each other at the opening by the play, but due to the manipulation of others, they are in love with each other as the play closes. Beatrice and Benedick make it well known in the 1st act they think very poorly of each other and Beatrice even states that “I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me” giving the reader
Shakespeare displays the feud between the two families as an immense obstacle Romeo and Juliet have to bypass in order to achieve a lifetime of happiness and love. Support Even if their relationship is seen as impractical and impossible, Romeo continues to discreetly meet Juliet and marry her in secret, with the exception of Friar Lawrence and the Nurse. Romeo’s actions show how willing he is to go against the odds just so he can follow his heart and be with Juliet. Romeo goes against his family’s belief that the Capulets are his sworn enemies.
Throughout the internationally acclaimed novel, Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare conveys the theme of young love fabricating an ill-advised notion. First of all, Romeo and Juliet’s family and friends dislike one another, presuming a strenuous relationship. Furthermore, Romeo and Juliet constitute irrational decisions due to their spontaneous intimacy. From the beginning, the novel clearly demonstrates Romeo and Juliet’s family’s disgust for one another. Romeo and Juliet’s family animosity foreshadows difficulty for the young romance.
As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage,” (3.2.61-65). Despite the Friar’s warnings, Romeo still went along with the marriage. Some may think that Friar Lawrence is a bigger part of Romeo and Juliet’s deaths than Romeo is because the Friar would rather end the Montague- Capulet feud than keep the two lovers together. All in all his plans to end the feud with Juliet drinking the poison fails with Romeo and Juliet dying. This argument doesn’t consider how sad the Friar was when he found out about the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
