Nonetheless one person is at most to blame and his name is Friar Lawrence. Marrying Romeo and Juliet so quickly without thinking is one reason Friar Lawrence is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo beseeches Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet later the same day they meet (2.3.68). The friar should think before he acts upon Romeo’s request. He knows that Romeo is not marrying for love but for looks.
13-15). With this statement, Mercutio cluelessly foreshadows Romeo’s death without realizing it. Even though Mercutio believes that Romeo is lovesick for Rosaline still, since he doesn’t know about Juliet, his accusation was correct. As stated from the beginning, Romeo and Juliet will fall in love and die together because of the
Capulet was keeping a bad relationship with Montague’s family and objecting Juliet’s love with Romeo thoroughly. Finally, he became a villain who forced Juliet to marry Parris who belongs to other family, not Romeo and gives them tragic ending as they all killed themselves. Also, he is
What the Capulets did to Juliet explains why they were selfish because instead of respecting Juliet’s decision they thrash on her and say things to force her to become a wife. This disconnect with their daughter is why they were not able to save Juliet from death. The other factor that caused the demise of Romeo and Juliet was their want for their desires. For instants, Romeo did not think about the consequences of meeting with Juliet even though he was being hunted. For example, the balcony scene where Romeo is confessing his love to Juliet.
Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme. The audience must draw conclusions concerning their relationship because their love is not the main focus of the play and Hamlet acting insane is an inconvenience because it is hard to decipher what was sincere or madness. Shakespeare does not seem to have a high opinion of women, while writing Hamlet, considering how Hamlet holds deep bitterness toward his mother and Ophelia for not having a backbone and allowing themselves to be pawns in the game Claudius and he are playing. Saying this, Hamlet’s behavior towards Ophelia is crude, rough, and full of anger. Despite Hamlet’s harsh treatment towards Ophelia, he really did love her, but because she was not his main focus, the
In the play, Friar Laurence is foreseen as the reason of Romeo and Juliet’s death, due to the factor that they’re job was making the right choice and they didn’t do it which lead to Romeo and Juliet’s death. One factor that Friar Laurence did that lead to Romeo and Juliet’s death was allowing Romeo and Juliet to marry when they only
In the beginning of the play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo predicts his own fate as his “mind misgives” (1.4 104). The two young lovers are “star-crossed lovers who take their life” because they care about each other very deeply and their love is doomed by fate as they are not allowed to be with one another due to the family feud between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s who will avert them from being with one another. This creates a barrier to their happiness because of their
Was it actually possible for Romeo and Juliet to fall in love? The answer is no. Romeo and Juliet were so young, and Romeo is getting over a breakup. They are both also looking for escapism. Romeo and Juliet were not in love because they barely knew each other, Romeo just got over a breakup, and they were both looking for escapism.
True love is supposed to be the best. It shouldn't cause you to take the lives of one of your friends and family members, then end up killing yourself. This “love” tortures everyone involved, causing nothing but pain and suffering. For example, in Act 5 Scene 1, Romeo says “An if a man did need a poison now — Whose sale is present death in Mantua— Here lives a caitiff wretch would sell it him.” (5.1.52-54) Romeo is shown trying to think of who would sell him poison to kill himself just minutes after he discovered Juliet's apparent fate. Romeo is willing to end his own life over a girl he met not even a week ago.
His beloved Rosaline, which he could not make absent in his mind, has suddenly vanished from existence the moment Romeo gets a glimpse of the pretty face of Juliet. Romeo forgets about Rosaline when he sees Juliet, as he states “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight, for I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”(184.108.40.206). Romeo notices how his love for Rosaline was not true, yet he still chooses to “love” someone new immediately, although this is just the same as his previous “love.” His judgement of the love he feels is based merely on beauty, although this is physical attraction, which heh does not understand. Romeo and Juliet are young and have not
