Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
Friar is to blame, not only for one action that contributed to their death, but for three actions. Friar Lawrence’s first mistake was allowing Romeo and Juliet to be able to be married so quickly without thinking it through. The Friar had intentions hoping that if he married Romeo and Juliet, it may save the family feud and put it past the families. In the play Friar Lawrence
Suddenly, in Act 2 Scene 3, Romeo declares that he wants to marry Juliet. He didn’t know why he wanted to marry so suddenly, and didn’t even have a plan for their “secret” marriage. Romeo was too impetuous and could have risked their marriage if the public didn’t accept it. Next, Romeo went to fight Tybalt after what he saw happen to Mercutio. Since Romeo didn’t think about his actions, he accidentally killed Tybalt.
The feud also caused the fights which led to Romeo’s banishment. Friar Lawrence allowed Romeo and Juliet to get married in secret which caused conflict in the story. The feud and Friar Laurence are to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The feud prevented Romeo and Juliet from being happily married. In Act I scene v,Juliet says, “My only love, sprung from my only hate!
She was forced to, and her dad also hit her. This evidence shows us how Juliet was put in so much stress to marry someone she didn’t love.In the fight scene where Romeo’s friend died he didn’t want to fight Tybalt because they were family. Romeo and Juliet were too stressed to make the right decision. Your counterclaim paragraph goes here: On the other hand, they may argue that Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet chose to hide their love from their families instead of reveal it.The only reason that they didn’t tell their families is because they were in a blood feud. They are both and they are married to the enemies of their families.
But the question is, “Who is to blame for their deaths?” Many people believe the answer is Friar Laurence, the nurse, or Romeo and Juliet themselves. Really the feud was to blame for the tragic ending. First off, if the feud wasn’t there, the couple could have fallen in love peacefully, and Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t have had to hide their marriage. “O Romeo. Romeo!
Blaming Friar Lawrence Wouldn’t you just love to blame somebody for all the tragedy in your life? In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet you can blame somebody, and that is Friar Lawrence. Many things were variables that added up to this tragedy, but in each variable the friar had at least a small tie to it. It is because of Friar lawrence that Romeo and Juliet meet their fatal death. Friar Lawrence advised Romeo and Juliet to get married despite the ongoing feud between their families.
Lord Capulet not being the accepting father Juliet needs, eventually causes a series of events that lead to Romeo and Juliet killing themselves. Lord Capulet is most at fault for the tragic fate of Romeo and Juliet because he was so controlling over Juliet, forcing her to marry Paris, and moved Paris and Juliet’s wedding day up which resulted in the death of Romeo and Juliet. Lord
Summer Arthur. “Arranged Marriage” Seeing that Juliet claimed to be in love with Romeo, poor Paris never even stood a chance. So, when Romeo and Juliet came to the agreement of marriage, Juliet didn’t take Paris under consideration, until she realized that it would become a problem. Once Juliet realized that she was arranged to be married to Paris, she threw a tantrum and declared that she would not marry him. As she saw the disappointment and indignation grow on her father’s face, she soon realized that she needed to come up with a plan to get out of the arranged marriage.
Friar Laurence does not know Juliet is taking the potion a day early, therefore he does not tell Romeo about the plan in time. So when Romeo sees her, he actually thinks she is dead, and has no clue about the potion. Had she planned things out better and taken her time, things would have ended up differently. Friar Laurence supporting Romeo and Juliet in pursuit of their marriage and all their other plans is another example of human error. Friar Laurence, being an adult, should have saw things were getting out of hand, and should have let Romeo and Juliet’s parents know what was going on.
