/ I pray you, tell my lord and father, madam / I will not marry yet, and when I do I swear / it shall be to Romeo, whom I know you hate / Rather than Paris.” Juliet begged her mother to accept the fact that she doesn’t want to marry Paris, and wants to marry Romeo. Not taking their daughter into consideration when making her decisions, Juliet’s Parents threaten to disown Juliet if she doesn’t marry Paris. This obviously makes Juliet feel as if she can’t live with her own family since she is married to Romeo, leading to her eventual death. Critics may argue that Tybalt, a Capulet, was the most responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet because of a fight between the two families that lead to Romeo’s banishment. This argument is flawed because the fight wouldn 't have happened if the parents had ended the
If certain characters had thought or acted differently at certain points of the play, could the Star-Crossed lover’s deaths been prevented? In the play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Lord Capulet and Friar Laurence are the individuals responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet. The tragedy is about two young adults that fall in love, which ultimately leads to their doom. Their deaths cause the altercation between Lord Capulet and Lord Montague to end. Throughout this wild plot, Lord Capulet and Friar Laurence’s actions are to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death.
“Hang thee, young baggage! Disobedient wretch! / I tell thee what get thee to church a Thursday / or never after look me in the face” (III.v. 161-163). Father Capulet forced this marriage on Juliet when secretly she was already married to Romeo.
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.
Perhaps the character who played this biggest part in the tragedy was Lord Capulet, Juliet's father. There are several reasons why Lord Capulet is to be blamed for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. His decision to force Juliet to get married, his contribution of the family feud, and his decision to change the day of the marriage. The main reason I think Lord Capulet is to blame is because he forced Juliet to get married. Him forcing Juliet to get married only left Juliet two choices and that was to either run away or get married, and of course we all know that her getting marred to anyone but Romeo wasn't an option.
Meanwhile, Juliet’s father had made plans for her to marry Count Paris, upon her refusal, he threatened to turn her out. Juliet was faced with a horrible dilemma, to abandon her one true love or to face her father’s wrath and live out the rest of her days as a street urchin. In her plight, she turned to the friar that married Romeo and her, who devised a plan to allow them to stay together. He gave Juliet a potion that made her seem dead temporarily, she drank it and was laid in a tomb. Romeo found out about her supposed death before the friar could tell him of his scheme and rushed to her side.
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.
For kids, it may lead them to get suspended or expelled. In “Romeo and Juliet” Shakespeare tells you at the end that Romeo and Juliet died from making rash decisions without thinking about the consequences.The story is about two lovers that should have thought things through and learn from their mistakes but end up failing in the long run. So these two people are enemies but lovers. Their family does not want them to love each other. They
He yells at Juliet saying, “Hang thee, young baggage, disobedient wretch! I tell thee what: get thee to church o’ Thursday, or never after look me in the face… But an you will not wed, I’ll pardon
Go, get thee hence, for I will not away. [Exit Friar Laurence] (5.3.155-160) Friar Laurence is the most to blame as he secretly marries the lovers, he hides Romeo, and he provides Juliet with the sleeping potion; moreover, he leaves the emotionally vulnerable Juliet when he could have forced her out of the tomb with him. His failure to speak with the parents and seek to ameliorate their hatred and his other actions go completely against his religious vows as well as being unconscionable. When Juliet 's father insisted that Juliet marry Paris, she could have been honest and told him why she could not marry Paris; instead, she beats around the bush and asks to delay the marriage instead. Romeo, when he saw Juliet in the tomb, did not have to take the potion.
The death of Romeo and Juliet in william shakespeare’s play are both hate and love. Although much could have been done to prevent their suicides, these “star-crossed lovers” ultimately are not able to avoid their destiny. A series of unfortunate circumstances result in disaster, and even though many people could blame for their death, Lady Capulet, Friar Laurence 's, and Capulet play a particularly integral role. While some believe that juliet is responsible for Romeo and Juliet death, this is not the case. Upon further investigation Lady Capulet should receive the blame.
Friar Lawrence also knew that Romeo and Juliet had only just met and that not even twenty-four hours before, Romeo was crying about Rosaline. The wedding led to their deaths because since they were already married, Juliet 's engagement to Paris led to a chain reaction of unfortunate events. Friar Lawrence might not have given Juliet the potion if he wasn 't put in the situation of marrying the same girl twice, then they could have avoided the whole double suicide. If they weren 't married things might have gone very differently, Juliet might have talked to her parents or she might have found that she actually liked Paris and could move
The fact that Romeo and Juliet where each from families that hated the other guaranteed they were doomed from the second they laid eyes on each other, so here death is the fault of the parents. In a way, if the Montagues and Capulet’s could’ve just been friends, all these deaths could’ve been avoided. Therefor the deaths were the parents were the parents fault, not the Friar’s. This is not accurate, because even if the families were best friends, Lord Capulet would have still wanted Juliet to marry Paris not Romeo , and they woul have gotten in a feud
