In times of tragedy, people look for answers and someone to blame. This is the case in William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet. The character, Friar Lawrence who was a trusted man of the cloth, allowed the two young protagonists Romeo and Juliet from opposing families to get married. Then later in the novel, he created a plan with the hope of the two lovers being together after they were separated by a tragic event, but ended with the two killing themselves. Being so, Friar Lawrence is the cause of the tragic ending in Romeo and Juliet, as he agreed to marry the two lovers without their parents permission, and devised a plan that ended with the lovers suicide.
Another example that demonstrates fate and free will is from Shakespeare’s famous play, Romeo and Juliet. The tragedy begins with Romeo attending a party, meeting Juliet, and marrying her with the help of Friar Laurence. A few days later, Romeo kills Tybalt, resulting in Romeo’s banishment. Soon after, Juliet’s parents decide to arrange her marriage
In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the play takes place in the city of Verona where two feuding families, the Capulets and the Montagues, live. Romeo and Juliet come from these discorded families, Juliet is a Capulet and Romeo is a Montague. The two young adults meet and fall in love at a Capulet party. However, their fate is not the most ideal ending. The two lovers take their own life, but who is responsible for their deaths is a question one might ask.
With this quote, the teenage brain makes choices with consequences, look for new sensations, and seek out social and emotional information. During the second scene of Act II, Romeo and Juliet make the decision to marry each other hours after meeting at the Capulet party. Romeo seeks out Friar Lawrence to ask, “but this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today” (Shakespeare 410). Here Romeo is asking Friar Lawrence to marry them that same day, even though he and Juliet met the night before. Both the audience and Friar Lawrence are surprised by this, as only twenty four hours earlier Romeo was in love with Rosaline and depressed that she did not love him back.
Later on in the play, Romeo and Juliet are talking about their relationship, and what they would have to do to get married. Juliet says this to Romeo, “Deny thy father and refuse thy name / Or, if thou wilt not, but sworn my love / And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.” Juliet is saying that Romeo would need to give up his Montague name for her to be able to marry him. This quote shows the power of the feud that the parents have put them in. The young lovers can’t get married because of their parent’s rivalry, and this sets up many of their problems created by their parents. The next reason that Romeo and Juliet’s parents are responsible for their death is that the Capulet’s threw an enormous party, and let Romeo in.
