If Friar didn’t marry them it would of not started the chain reactions of events that occur next. The play ends with three tragic deaths; those including being Romeo and Juliet. Friar Laurence is mostly to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet, because of he did things in secret, not communicating clearly, and not executing his plans. The first reason why Friar Laurence is to blame is because he married Romeo and Juliet.
The Love Story That Ended With a Tragedy Fate or Friar Lawrence, whom is to blame for the death of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet? Were the two lovers destined to die or was it the foolish and irresponsible decisions made by Friar Lawrence? Friar Lawrence is a man of high regards; he is a holy man who is trusted, respected and looked upon for guidance by not only Romeo and Juliet but by the citizens of Verona. Friar Lawrence’s decisions were negligent and vacuous ultimately leading to the lovers deaths. Friar Lawrence irresponsibly married Romeo and Juliet after the naïve couple only knew each other for 24 hours.
Hamlets tragic flaw is his indecisiveness to make decisions. This trait is demonstrated through the entire play and causes Hamlet to his own demise. When Hamlet has immediate suspicious of his fathers murder and later proof, he delays the murder, which is puzzling because the play is about revenge, and one would expect him to have done it earlier as he had ample amount of opportunities to do so. His indecisiveness has puzzled many.
“ Mistakes made by a foolish mind, cruel mistakes that bring on death.” (1406 to 1407.) In this quote, King Creon of Thebes is acknowledging that he has made tragic mistakes, because he wanted to the laws of his state, that he put in place, instead of preserving the safety of his family, which consequently lead to suffering for many. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, the character Creon makes decisions based on what he feels is right, and refuses to pay attention to other’s advice. His stubbornness and selfishness prove fatal, and as a consequence of his moral deficiency, he kills an innocent woman, and loses his son in the aftermath.
And in my temper soft’ned valor’s steel!” (3.1.115-117). In this quote, Romeo is expressing how Juliet’s beauty weakened him. He feels almost a hatred towards her for making him cowardly and not able to save Mercutio’s life. Since being strong is an expected characteristic of men, Romeo feels that the absence of his bravery is to blame for the tragedy.
I believe that The Feud, Friar Lawrence and Tybalt all play a role in Romeo and Juliet's death. The Feud between the families was quite major and with Romeo (a Montague) and Juliet (a Capulet) falling in the love, it made it even worse. The families of Romeo and Juliet didn't support their love and if there wasn't a feud between the Montague's and Capulet's, Friar Lawrence wouldn't have had to create a plan to hide their marriage. Friar Lawrence played a big role in Romeo and Juliet's relationship and his actions ultimately lead to the death of the two. He marries the two behind their families back, creates a potion for Juliet to fake her death and fled Juliet at her tomb, where she then killed herself.
In addition, Romeo’s hamartia, or his fatal error that ultimately brings his doom, lies in his impulsive actions, which drives him to kill Tybalt, Paris, and eventually himself. The tragic hero also has a downfall, where his circumstances are reversed and he gradually loses power. In Romeo’s example, his continued abrupt actions lead to his fatal end. In Shakespearean tragedy, the anagnorisis, or the change from ignorance to the recognition of the hamartia, is not always realized by the tragic hero. While it does not appear Romeo acknowledged his own lack of sensibility, both Friar Laurence and Juliet
When Romeo first came to Friar and told him that he had found someone else to love, Friar did not think that they should be together. He immediately scolded Romeo for getting over Rosaline to quickly and said that Romeo only loved Juliet for her beauty. “Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here! Is Rosaline, whom thou didst love so dear, So soon forsaken?
Iago’s jealously is what caused the whole tragedy in Othello. Iago suspected of Othello to have slept with his wife. Iago had sexual jealousy which cause him to suspect Othello to be one who had intercourse with Emilia. In “Jealousy” David Suchet, the actor who played Iago in Royal Shakespeare Company, suggest that “Iago’s hidden motivation to do evil originates from his envious reactions to other principal figures in the play.” As Othello promotes Cassio over him, Iago would become envious and jealous of Cassio.
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet Friar is a liar… A Meddler…and irrational! That began the awful tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. We can say that Friar seems like an intelligent and reasonable man, however, have his actions prove otherwise! Friar is guilty because he married Romeo and Juliet in secret, thinking it would resolve the dispute between the two feuding families.
In the tragic play, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, many acts of violence are interwoven throughout the plot. In this play, there are many suspects who were involved in the situation and are to blame. However, there is one individual who should be held most responsible. The many acts of violence this person caused strengthened the feud between the Capulets and Montagues, thus enabling future events to take place. This feud ultimately led to the deaths of Romeo, Juliet, Mercutio, Tybalt, and Paris.
Have you ever made a decision that you thought was correct but it was wrong and affected everyone around you?
