(5.3.229-265) The events that happened due to Romeo and Juliet could 've avoided the hurt they brought on each other and their families if they would 've came forward. Although their secrecy was needed to avoid judgement and separation from both sides of their family, Romeo and Juliet’s deaths revealed the secret they were so willingly to die for until after their deaths did the Capulets and Montagues feud end once and for
Everything from that point on did not go well at all. Being that Friar also married the couple secretly is also why he should be punished. Friar should be punished because if he had asked for permission to marry the couple none of this would have happened. Juliet’s parents may have been more understanding then making her marry Count Paris. Friar should have also had a better plan than what had happened with the vial he gave Juliet.
He is to blame because he married off Romeo and Juliet without anyone knowing. Then when things got more serious and needed a letter delivered to Romeo, the friar forgot to inform the messenger of how important it was before he set off and it was already too late when he arrived back. Fate can’t be the reason for tragedy because there is too much evidence placing the blame on the friar. At the end of the story he even admits his mistakes. Because of the friar there was never a story of more woe than the tale of Romeo and
When Romeo is in initial shock he asks Balthasar if the Friar had sent him any letters, but as far as Romeo knows, he has not. Friar John didn’t let anyone in on the secret, even Romeo’s close friends. If it hadn’t been so urgent that the letter gets to Romeo, than Friar John could have notified some of Romeo’s friends, even had one or two go with him on his voyage instead of stopping to look for another friar. This is one small mistake that changes the plot of the play from one of a happily ever after to a tragic obliteration of two lovers’ happy
The Blame Game It might be hard to decide who to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet because many people made dumb decisions to just pick one person. For the people that says they blame Romeo and Juliet for their own deaths, that 's a basic answer but in the beginning it was their faults because of their hasteful ways, like fast they “fell in love” at the party and got married pretty much within one day, but in all actuality it 's Friars fault for their deaths. He 's not a “bad guy” but because his plans weren 't fully thought out and he didn 't think of any backup plans if something went wrong. The reason why he had to think of plans so fast is because the people around him where either panicking or threatening to kill themselves. Still its Friar Laurence fault and these are some reasons why.
Falling in love takes more than one day and you should really get to know who the person is and about their family before getting married. Romeo and Juliet new that the marriage wasn 't a good idea considering they wanted to keep it a secret. Romeo never liked to fight and especially didn 't want to kill his new wife 's cousin. Most of these mistakes could 've been prevented if Romeo and Juliet didn’t fall in love so quickly, but that didn’t happen and their mistakes sadly, lead to their
Friar Lawrence has a large influence on Romeo and Juliet’s death because due to his age, he had a big responsibility to disapprove of the haste of their marriage, and to make both families aware of it, but he didn’t. Friar Lawrence also did not take into account that the two’s families were enemies and the secret marriage of the two could just further the divide between them. Friar also put trust in another person, Friar John, to deliver a letter to Romeo, without telling him the urgency of it. If Friar Lawrence had told Friar John that the letter was very important and had to get to Romeo by a certain time, it would have gotten to him before. Friar Lawrence could have gone to speak to Romeo himself, so that Romeo could have made an opinion on Juliet’s decision.
In the final scene, Prince Escalus absolves Friar Lawrence of all guilt, saying “we still have known thee for a holy man”(V, iii,281). I believe that Friar Lawrence is not responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death. Friar isn’t responsible because even if Friar disagreed to marry them, that wouldn’t have stopped their love. Second, the family feud is what caused all the deaths in the play. Third, it was part of Romeo and Juliet’s fault for not listening to the Friar’s warnings.
During this moment Juliet is debating if she should or should not take the potion, if she did he family would believe her dead. She did decided to take it in the end so she could be with romeo. She chose Romeo over her own family, because she loved him so great and she knew should would not marry paris so this was the only thing she thought she could do. It wasn 't, she could 've told her father everything that had happened in the past with Romeo. But she did not she kept it a secret and had to lie to her father by faking her death.
He was good at heart. We know this when he married Romeo and Juliet hoping that it would end the crisis of both of their families. And due to Lord Capulet making the wedding between Juliet and Paris so soon he had very little to work with when it came to making an effective plan. On top of that, the plan would have worked if he had just decided to send a different messenger such as
Romeo is at fault for taking his and Juliet’s lives because he made impulsive decisions and did what was best for himself without thinking of others. Throughout the play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is spontaneous when it comes to making decisions and does not think them through. Romeo had come to Lord Capulet’s party hoping to find Rosaline, but completely forgot about her when he saw Juliet: “My lips, two blushing pilgrims,
The person to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death is Friar Laurence because he kept their secret and helped them be together. He was also the one who married them in hopes of ending the feud between the Capulets and Montagues. He also made many mistakes that caused his plan for Romeo and Juliet to go wrong. He trusted someone to deliver a note of great importance to Romeo, gave potion to Juliet, and he fled Juliet’s tomb instead of trying to help her. All of these mistakes would not have happened if Friar thought out his plan a little more.
The person, who is responsible for the deaths, is none-the-less the Friar. Without the Friar, Romeo and Juliet would have never taken their own life, and the lives of many others would not have been lost. First of all, the Friar never should of married Romeo and Juliet without their parent’s consent. Even though the friar had good intentions, it was a bad idea. The Friar new it was a bad idea because he said, “But come, young waverer, come, go with me, In one respect I’ll thy assistant be…” This means that the friar will help Romeo with his secret wedding.
Romeo 's impulsive behavior and perilous love for Juliet proved to be fatal for both of them. If he had been loyal to the Montague family, and resisted his risky love for Juliet, he would have saved both of their lives. In addition, his extreme, unbridled passion for Juliet put both of them in danger. Even though Romeo was primarily responsible for their deaths and others, Friar also contributed to the deaths of both Romeo and Juliet. By allowing Romeo’s persuasive words and undying passion for Juliet to persuade him to go along with the wedding, he put them both in a risky situation which led to their demise.
Also, Friar Laurence never knew that the letter would not get to Romeo. Secondly, Friar Laurence was the one who married them in the first place. He knew that they were forbidden to get married. He thought that if he married them, the drama and fighting between their families would stop. Friar Laurence states ¨in one respect I´ll assist be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households rancor to pure love¨(980) This is saying that not knowing what marrying Romeo and Juliet could cause, but he did it anyway.
