He was also the person who came up with juliet's fake death. He could of not helped her and on her own she could of figured a way out of the problems she got into herself. The first example of how Friar Lawrence is to blame is now he told Romeo that he would marry him and juliet in secret without telling anyone knowing that their families hated each other to death. In the play, Romeo told the friar that he was in love and that he wanted to marry. Romeo asked the friar
After trying to deny being married off she finally agreed to marry Paris, but she will have to take the potion sooner, but she has no way to communicate this to Romeo. Romeo, unknowing of the circumstances, decided that before he left he needed a backup plan. He decided to get a vile of poison to kill himself if he is unable to get Juliet back. Since the sale of poison is illegal and punishable by death, he finds a poor apothecary that will do anything for money and has him make a batch of his strongest poison for Romeo. The apothecary tells Romeo that he is only doing this because he is poor, not because it is the right thing to do in “My poverty but not my will consents” (5.1. 75).
Romeo and Juliet What are the main factors that caused their death? Romeo and Juliet’s death could have been caused by a great many factors but due to the fact that a few of the decisions chosen in the story were heavily influenced by either one or many other decisions acted upon by the relatives or friends of the two main characters in the story, Romeo and Juliet. Fate is not included because this is based off as if it was a real life scenario (which fate doesn’t affect since it has no proof of existence). The primary factor for their death is Romeo’s stupidity that got him banished from the city for killing Tybalt in the first place, however much deserved his death was.
Friar John replies that he was unable to deliver the letter to Romeo because a quarantined house due to an outbreak of Plague. Friar Lawrence becomes upset realizing that if Romeo does not know about Juliet’s fasle death, there will be no one to retrieve her from the tombs when she awakes. So when Romeo found out about being Juliet being dead he freaked out not knowing that the death was faked. Some people may argue that Romeo and Juliet was the cause of their own death because they were young and unstable. Romeo was impulsives which caused problems within himself.
The friar should be pardoned because he told Romeo to take it slow and he says that he will marry them because it might end the feud. The nurse should be punished because she helped the two people who were not supposed to be together stay together. She also knew about them and did not tell anybody. Old Capulet should be punished because he forced Juliet to marry Paris and threatened to disown her. This put a lot of pressure on Juliet to find a way to not marry Paris.
Even though Lord Capulet did nothing to Romeo, he did something very ungrateful to his daughter. He told her to move out if she’s not going to marry Paris and
“The blame Game” If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty. Friar laurence was responsible for marrying Romeo and Juliet. The nurse and them three was the only one’s that knew about it. If they wouldn’t have never kept the marriage a secret the prince wouldn’t have Romeo banned from the town and Romeo and Juliet could’ve lived happily ever after.
Romeo’s obsession with love started the chain of events leading to all six deaths. Romeo acts before he thinks, causing the deaths to take place. Some people may argue that it’s not his fault because he can’t help how he feels. This is an invalid argument because, while he may not be able to control how he feels, he is able to control his actions and he chose to do all the things he did. Other people argue that Benvolio is to blame because he instructed Romeo to go to the Capulets’ party, but this argument is weak because Romeo didn’t have to agree to go.
In the story of Romeo and Juliet many very unfortunate things happen, but who is to blame for all these things? In the world people are always looking for someone to blame, No one ever wants it to be there fault. In the story of Romeo and Juliet I think that the Friar is to blame. The Friar could have taken control over this once he saw it start to go bad, but he didn't. The Friar easily could have stopped the death of 3 people but instead he tried to help Romeo and Juliet.
There were many signals that Juliet was unstable after Romeos banishment, yet the friar ignored them and came up with a dangerous plan for her to fake her death. When seeing Juliet threaten suicide he should have at least reprimanded Juliet for even thinking of doing that. In the text it even says that since quote . I ponder why the Friar even thought Juliet was stable enough to carry through with his plan because what they were already doing was precarious and she was borderline irrational at that point. Friar Laurence should have listened to logic, instead of ignoring it to reunite the two lovers.
In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence’s insensibility causes him to give Romeo and Juliet rash advice, leading to the pair of star-crossed lovers’ ultimate doom. When Romeo seeks advice from Friar Lawrence in hopes that he can marry him with Juliet, the Friar agrees, in hope of “[turning the] households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3.99). However, as an adult, and as a man that others seek for help, Friar Lawrence should have put more thought into the different ways the families could react by the marriage. The Friar should have realized that there was a big possibility that the Capulets and Montagues would be angered by the wedding. Instead, he makes his decisions upon the improbable idea of reconcilement through marriage.
Friar Lawrence is responsible for all six deaths that occurred over four days. If Friar Lawrence had gotten the letter to Romeo in time, Romeo would have known that Juliet is just sleeping. When Romeo believes that Juliet is dead, he says “Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die” (Shakespeare V.iii.120); subsequently, Friar Lawrence must be held accountable for the end result of his action.
Friar Laurence is was an interesting character. He helped the two star-crossed lovers, but was also a reason they both died in the end. Friar Laurence is many different things. I think some things he say in the play kind of shape him.
Throughout history we have trusted the leader of our church, the priest. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet trust the priest of their church, Friar Lawrence. Friar Lawrence is at fault for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence is responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death because he married them and keeps it secret. Lord Capulet makes Juliet marry Paris because Friar Lawrence has not told the parents of Romeo or Juliet yet.
