Along with comforting Romeo for the punishment he received, the Friar adds, “This is dear mercy, and thou seest it not.” (A3, S3, L31).

Monk Laurence weds Romeo and Juliet even though he trusts that the marriage will wind up in disaster. In any case, he weds them with the expectation that it will end the ceaseless fighting between the two families. At the point when Romeo requests that Friar Laurence wed him with Juliet the Friar doesn 't imagine that his affection is valid. Similar to his adoration for Rosaline, the Friar trusts that his affection for Juliet won 't last.

Iago makes several false promises to Roderigo and he does not expose Iago because he is desperate for love. If Roderigo exposed Iago when he said he would, a lot of misfortune would not have occurred. Therefore, Roderigo demonstrates the dark side of human nature by being jealous and unintelligent. To conclude, the dark side of human nature is demonstrated by Iago who is selfish, Brabantio who is doubtful, and Roderigo who lacks cleverness. William Shakespeare’s Othello shows how easy it is to let emotions take over one’s mind.
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
Mercutio is different from Romeo because he does not believe in love and makes fun of Romeo and falling in love so heavily all the time. When Romeo describes his love for Rosaline using a rose with thorns as a metaphor. Mercutio laughs and says ”If love be rough with you, be rough with love; Prick love for pricking and you beat love down”(I.4.27-28).

Since Friar is a holy man, he is trying to act like God, and is trying to fix the feud between the two households by marrying
For instance, Juliet confesses to Romeo how she is, “…too fond, / And therefore thou mayst think my haviour light” (2.2.102-103). Juliet is aware that the speed at which she fell in love can be considered frivolous, which demonstrates how rushing love is not a mature decision. Juliet having to reassure Romeo that her love is valid implies that falling in love quickly is associated with false feelings. Moreover, Juliet offers her explanation of how she talked openly about her feelings without knowing Romeo was at her balcony, and she asks of Romeo not to, “impute this yielding to light love” (2.2.109). Juliet finds it necessary to persuade Romeo to believe in her love, which signifies that declaring love extremely promptly comes off as unconvincing.
Iago, a hopeful lieutenant, hopes to become the moor’s first pick of who will obtain the high position of being an official. However, he is not picked and becomes quite jealous of what has occurred.

He later sees the motivation in marrying the two lovers: But come, young waverer, come, go with
The very instance that the two belong to opposing groups is only one example of destiny's twisted humor. Now some would argue that it is wholly Friar John's fault for not delivering the plans to Romeo. This is viable, yet one could argue that it is ultimately fate's hand for casting a plague upon unsuspecting Friar John, hindering him from completing his crucial mission. Fate, or in this case Fortune, is brought to attention in the play when Juliet consults the stars to deliver Romeo back safely. She asks, "O Fortune, Fortune!
