He even states his goal. “For this alliance so happy prove / To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3. 91-92). 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.
Sounds familiar? To dismiss God without giving him serious consideration is something only a fool would do, and to arrive at the conclusion that He does not exist, because a darkened and sin-ravaged heart says so, only compounds the folly. That is one kind of fool, and we should not be surprised to learn that they are many in that category.
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 this passage, Shakespeare uses an extended metaphor that compares plants to human nature. Using this metaphor, Shakespeare suggests that just as the flower has both good medicinal uses and bad, poisonous uses, human nature is both bad and good. Also, by portraying Friar Lawrence as a knowledgeable medicine man, Shakespeare suggests that Friar Lawrence is a wise character whose lines reveal what will happen in the play. By using an extended metaphor to introduce the clear
She’s telling Macbeth to act like he’s innocent and appear like he always has, kind, brave and fair, but actually be a cunning, cruel, ambitious person in order to become king. This is where her manipulative persona comes in to play. She is mistaking his goodness for weakness, and her ultimate goal is to create a two-faced murderer. Even though Macbeth is a generally decent character, he still has the capability to influence people and tell them what to do using fair is foul. Once Lady Macbeth convinces him to kill Duncan, he says that her "false face must hide what the false heart doth know," (1.7.95-96).
The Friar refuses to accept that the banishment of Romeo can eventually be linked back to him. The way that the Friar speaks to Romeo perfectly portrays his cowardice, as he refuses to own up to his own actions. However, the Friar also puts forth another type of cowardice, that he typically withholds, which is his fear of getting blamed, even at the sacrifice of others. When Juliet is in the tomb, with her dead fiance and husband, he leaves her abruptly without physically trying to get her out of the sepulcher with him. His only meager attempts are represented when he
He says that " 'For this alliance so happy prove/ To turn your households ' rancor to pure love '". After Romeo kills Tybalt he is sentenced to banishment. He knows Juliet is hurting from this and threatens to hurt himself, to which Friar Lawrence tells him to stop and be rational. Had he let Romeo go on, the story could have ended right then.
Lord Capulet is responsible for the Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, five dead and his own family in pieces. He is selfish throughout the play and only does what he thinks is best for his family instead of what would actually benefit those around him. Lord Capulet is egotistical and doesn’t think much of others and the way he treats them. In act 3, scene 5, after Juliet told her mother she doesn’t want to marry Paris, Lord Capulet comes in and says to her, “Hang thee, young baggage, disobedient wretch!
Whereon do you look?”. However, the audience can actually see the ghost and Hamlet’s words are coherent as he advises Gertrude on ways of seeking forgiveness, therefore Shakespeare uses dramatic irony to explore the theme of madness and advocate his sanity. Moreover, Hamlet also says to Gertrude “That I essentially am not in madness, But mad in craft.” Shakespeare exploits this dialogue to illustrate Hamlet is indeed aware of his actions, which seems absurd for a
Here Romeo tells Tybalt, that he loves him. Romeo does this with no thought about their last names, he is so in love with Tybalt’s cousin that all of a sudden he forgets about the two family’s bad blood. Friar warns Romeos about rushing into a relationship “Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast” (Shakespeare 847). Friar tells Romeo to take it slow don’t rush things.
A cup, closed in my true love’s hand?/ Poison, I see, hath been his timeless end./ O churl, drunk all, and left no friendly drop/ To help me after? I will kiss thy lips./ Haply some poison yet doth hang on them,/ To make me die with a restorative./ (kisses ROMEO)” (5.3.173-179) In Shakespeare 's play, the forcefulness of love can induce people into irrational decisions, causing consequences for the good or bad; love is a cause of violence but also of reconciliation.
This echos Friar Lawrence’s comments about the flower because the flower will strengthen you if you smell it but will kill you if you eat it. It has two very different effects just like Romeo made Juliet so angry and sad because he killed Tybalt, but at the same time he made her so happy and she loved him so much. Juliet convinces herself to support and forgive Romeo for killing her cousin by realizing that if Romeo hadn’t killed Tybalt then Tybalt would have killed Romeo. She decides that she would rather have Romeo alive and that Tybalt was the villain for trying to kill her husband.
Before the attack on his home is confirmed, Macbeth tells his servant, “As honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, / I must not look to have, but in their stead / Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honor, breath” (5.3.25-27). After killing too many people, Macbeth finds no purpose in honor or having love like a king normally has because he has survived so long without them, so by now he has adapted to these emptinesses. He has come to the conclusion that friends are no longer necessary because they just create more issues and more curses. They give him a false hope of honor, but the honor will not help him now. Macbeth yearns for the honor which he abandons once he decides to follow Lady Macbeth’s advice.
Romeo and Juliet’s love cannot apart from their two feuding families that lead to their fatal passing in the end. Many people were responsible for their death, as it portrays through out the play. Although, Friar Lawrence is the main person to blame. In William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” Friar Lawrence is responsible for the tragedy of two star crossed lovers for the following reasons, he is easily persuaded, he is irresponsible and is selfish. Friar Lawrence is easily persuaded without thinking in the risks involved.
There are many people in “Romeo and Juliet” who attributed to their deaths. First, Friar John didn’t make it in time to give Romeo the letter. Second, Friar Lawrence gave Juliet a potion and went to the tomb when they both died. Third, The nurse advises Juliet to marry paris and then find her dead in her bed. In conclusion, The murders of Romeo and were caused by Friar John, Friar Lawrence, and the nurse.
