In that moment Juliet awakes, finds Romeo’s lifeless body, and takes her own life as well. Making it seem as if the relationship between the two was hopeless from the
How would you describe Friar Lawrence from “Romeo and Juliet” in three adjectives? Here is how I would…
Friar Laurence was the wise adviser to Romeo and Juliet. He kept their secret and helped them be together. He was the one who married the two, hoping that the marriage would cause an end to the feuding. Romeo and Juliet getting married was banned and wouldn't be able to take place without Friar Lawrence. Friar Lawrence stupidly chose to marry Romeo and Juliet even though he knew that it would cause issues in the future. The Friar says in the beginning of the story "this alliance may so happy prove To turn your households' rancor to pure love." (II iv 91-92) This shows that the Friar has doubts and only has a small bit of hope that Romeo and Juliet's marriage will actually be successful. As the story goes on, the friar starts to give hints towards him regretting on having the wedding. He is clearly having second thoughts when he says
Friar Lawrence was one of the main characters who offered poor advice to Romeo and Juliet throughout their misadventure. First, he married Romeo and Juliet quickly after they met without their parents’ knowledge. Friar Lawrence warned them about moving too fast, but he proved to be a hypocrite when he quickly married them. With this single decision, he became tangled in their mess of miscommunication and passion. The young lovers had a love so strong that it blinded their view of reality
He is very impetuous and he loses his self-control. This happening to Romeo led to everything that happens in Romeo and Juliet. Juliet is supposedly dead, but she really isn't. She drank a potion to seem like it so that Romeo could take her to Mantua and they could live together. Romeo doesn't hear the news however. Earlier Romeo went to Juliet's balcony and Juliet told him that her kinsmen would be coming for him. "Juliet: If they do see thee, they will murder thee. Romeo: Alack, there lies more peril in thine eye. Than twenty of their swords! Look thou but sweet, and I am proof against their enmity" (2.2.71-73). Romeo is saying let the kinsmen come he is not afraid of them. He says later he would rather die than be without Juliet. "Arms, take your last embrace! And, lips, O you the doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss a dateless bargain to engrossing death! Come, bitter conduct; come, unsavory guide! Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on the dashing rocks thy seasick weary bark! Here's to my love! O true Apothecary! Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die" (5.3.113-121). Romeo finds Juliet supposedly dead and drinks poison to die with her. He kisses her then dies next to her. Then Juliet awakens and sees Romeo dead, so she takes his dagger and stabs herself and dies next to
Juliet’s tragic downfall began when Romeo killed Tybalt, banishing himself to a lifetime of separation from her. Emotionally demolished by his sentence, Romeo says, “ Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say ‘death’”, indicating that Romeo would rather die than be banished from Verona. Romeo’s banishment by the Prince then causes Juliet and the Friar to come up with the idea to drink a potion that portrays Juliet to be as still as death. Once Romeo believes that Juliet is no longer alive, he makes another rash decision to bribe an apothecary for poison. Later in the tragedy, Romeo sees Juliet dead in the mausoleum, and decides to express his love for her, then drink the poison. Once Juliet awakes from her deep sleep and sees Romeo dead, she takes her own life with a dagger. Both Juliet and Romeo’s tragic downfall could have been avoided if Romeo thought about the consequences before he murdered Tybalt.
“Romeo is banned from Verona, which leads to him to seek out some pretty bad advice and guidance from Friar Laurence.” (Shmoop.com). The news Romeo receives is that Juliet is dead and in the Capulet's tomb Romeo does not know abou the fact he is supposed to be at Juliet's side when she wakes. Romeo is not aware of Juliet and Friar Lawrence's plan with the potion so in turn he takes his own life thinking Juliet is really dead. When Juliet wakes she finds Romeo dead next to her, she takes Romeo's dagger and stabbed it into her chest killing herself. She had taken to the potion to be reunited with Romeo and that hope is all ripped away the second she find Romeo dead next to her.
Most people see William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as a romantic love story of two teens who killed themselves for each other, but who is really to blame here? Friar Laurence is at fault for their deaths because he married Romeo and Juliet, did not have a good plan set up, and left Juliet alone in the tomb.
Romeo in his new home, receives news from his close friend that Juliet is dead, and was carried into the Capulet family tomb. Romeo instantly buys a poison potion from a local drug dealer, and rides on his horse to the Capulet household. He breaks his way into the tomb where he finds Paris, the man who was also supposed to marry Juliet. They engage in a battle, and Paris falls to the floor, dead. After this, Romeo finds Juliet and decides it is time to end his life to be with Juliet in heaven. Romeo states, “Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on the dashing rocks thy seasick weary bark! Here’s to my love. O true, apothecary, thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die” (5.3.117-120). Romeo drinks the poison, and kisses Juliet for the final time. What Romeo does not know is that Juliet is actually very much alive, and makes up not 5 minutes after Romeo kills himself. Consistent with his character, Romeo acts impulsively, and kills himself as he was blinded by love. If he had not acted impulsively here, He and Juliet would be together, both alive and well. This is yet another consequence experienced by Romeo for acting impulsively.
In the play Romeo and Juliet one of the main characters, Romeo, is a rather impulsive fellow who acts on what he sees and feels. He falls in love in the blink of an eye and just as fast he can get over it. He is always impulsive but when he finds himself in love his impulsiveness doubles. Romeo’s impulsive decisions causes his love, Juliet, to ultimately get killed. Romeo makes a lot of stupid decisions that gets Juliet killed but I only need two to get my point across.
Juliet believes she has found her true love and then her father tells her that she has to marry Paris. The brain makes a good decision and Juliet decides to see an adult. In this case, it is not a peer that gives Juliet bad advice but an elder. When Friar Lawrence tells Juliet to take a potion to make her appear dead, she brain does not consider how much grief and pain her family will endure but only thinks about being with the man she met less than a week ago. Juliet’s brain also did not process that word of her death would spread around and Romeo would think that she is dead. Although Romeo was supposed to receive a letter there was a possibility that he would not get in time, Juliet or Friar Lawrence should have told him in person as soon as they created the plan. After the potion wears off Juliet seems surprised to see a dead Romeo. Instead of thinking clearly and call for help, Juliet assumes that Romeo could not be saved and kills herself so they could be together.
All men in the world do not appreciate their masculinity to be challenged, which goes against their own code of honor. In the play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Romeo, Tybalt and Mercutio disrupt each other’s codes of honor by their actions in Act III, scene i. These three men’s codes of honor contribute to the tragedy of the play because of their views on masculinity, such as when Tybalt kills Mercutio and when Romeo kills Tybalt.
Many choices in Romeo & Juliet lead to Romeo and Juliet’s deaths, but the most responsible are the decisions of Romeo and Juliet. Even though the choices of people like Friar Laurence, Tybalt, and Lord Capulet lead to the deaths of Romeo & Juliet, the choices Romeo and Juliet make throughout the play ultimately leads to their death because of Romeo and Juliet’s decision to be married and Romeo’s decision to go to the party.
Then, through letters, Romeo will be informed of this, to meet her as she awakes in the tomb, and they will run away together to Mantua. His plan has many variables that could go wrong, yet he does not consider the precariousness of any of it. He does not know whether the potion will even work in time for Romeo to find her, if at all, or if it will be her groom Paris to find her “dead”, or what would happen if Romeo does not receive the letters. The fact that he never even thinks about all of these major dangers demonstrates his naïvety. As the knowledgeable adult in the situation, what he needed to do was to guide Juliet to safer alternatives, perhaps discussing with Capulet. Instead, he offered her this carelessly created plan. His failure to realize its instability and how his actions could affect Romeo and Juliet was ignorant and caused Romeo’s death. Though Romeo was supposed to receive a letter, the passage to his abode was blocked. He had only found out about Juliet’s “death” through a friend. Unfortunately, because he was not informed of the plan, he mistakenly thought she had truly passed away. Heartbroken, he found Juliet’s body, still affected by the potion on her tomb. He drank a poisonous potion so he could die beside her. When Juliet did eventually awake, she was greeted with the sight of her dead lover and stabbed herself
A Friar is a man of God. A man of whom is supposed to help God’s loving children and followers and a man whom is supposed to know what is best when it comes to being asked for advice. Friar Laurence in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is anything but what a Friar is supposed to be and ends up causing the deaths of four of six characters within the play. Friar Laurence did not physically go up and murder these characters but indirectly caused these deaths through leaving a suicidal alone and relying solely on the Church and himself rather than outside forces. The Friar is man of who is supposed to be of the lord, to protect and advise the people who follow god. The Friar is not supposed to be the reasoning for the deaths upon
