The last person in charge of the deaths of Romeo and Juliet is Friar Laurence. Friar Laurence is the person Juliet goes to after her father tells her she will have to marry Paris. She seeks for advice in what to do. After Juliet explains her situation and asks Friar for help, Friar Laurence comes up with an idea that just might do the trick. He gives her a potion that would fake her death so she would not have to marry the prince the next day.
He is speaking to himself about a dream he had where Juliet woke to find him dead. This is probably the most obvious foreshadow in the play, as that is exactly what happens when they are reunited in the Capulet tomb. Romeo does not know of the Friar’s plan and commits suicide before Juliet wakes up. She wakes to find him dead, and in turn kills herself. This foreshadowing is shown when Romeo states, “I dreamt my lady came and found me dead—/strange dream, that gives a dead man leave to think,” (5;1;6-7).
It has been argued, that the major reasons for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths are the involvement of Friar Lawrence, fate and foolishness. Their love ended early without much thought by either character. Juliet’s condition was not communicated in time to Romeo by Friar Lawrence, and Lawrence’s fail to inform Romeo only made the situation worse. Lawrence’s suspicions of Romeo’s feelings, and his decision to reaction to Romeo and Juliet’s pleas with irrational thought put the couple in danger. These reasons should be considered responsible for the death of the star-crossed
Their hasty desire of getting married and Romeo’s banishment from Verona proves that anything can withstand their love. As passionate as their love is their love ends in a tragedy with death coming to silence them and their love dying off. Who’s to blame for the two star-crossed lover deaths? To start off with one of the blames would go towards Mercutio and Tybalt. Both get into an argument which engages Tybalt to kill Mercutio.
The responsibility of their death ultimately belongs to the families of each teenager; their opinions, and actions greatly influenced the decision of the two, ending their lives. “O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father, and refuse thy name; or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet” ( II.ii.36-39). Romeo and Juliet’s love was doomed from the beginning, because of the enmity between their families, this contributed to their death.
In the end Romeo and Juliet did they actually have to kill themselves, their answer is yes they did. Romeo and Juliet caused their own death based on their actions. Because Romeo and Juliet did not communicate their love they had for eachother, they had to lie and keep secrets when confronted, thus leading to their demise. Romeo is too quick too think, Juliet got scared easily when she was confronted, and they both did not want to tell anyone they loved each other. In the moment Romeo was too quick to think with many things, but one being the greatest.
Romeo’s faulty decision caused the death of his best friend. To help is all he intended to do, but his act on impulse engendered a terrible decision. After the killing of Mercutio, Romeo found a way to end his life. The second of powerful decisions made by Romeo generated the death of his life and the beloved Juliet. Juliet stunted her death to run away with her husband Romeo.
Some may argue that it was not his fault that he was killed, for the prolonged feud between the two households, Montague and Capulet, could be considered the reason for the fight and death. In being rivals for so long, the households grew to violently despise the other. This led to Tybalt's desire to duel with Romeo, for he hated him for no reason except his last name. If the households were not enemies, neither would Tybalt and Romeo. Mercutio, right before his death, said, “A plague o’ both your houses!
This is foreshadowing because the Prince states if Romeo returns to Verona, he will die, and of course Romeo returns to see Juliet at her grave, where he kills himself. Romeo 3. 3. 46-49 Romeo is in the Friar 's cell after the killing of Tybalt. The Friar informs Romeo of his punishment being banishment and not death.
Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
