Friar Lawrence irresponsibly married Romeo and Juliet after the naïve couple only knew each other for 24 hours. Friar Lawrence’s irresponsible nature involved: hiding the marriage from the feuding families, advising Juliet to fake her death, along with abandoning suicidal Juliet when she needed guidance and adult supervision. All of these poor decisions resulted to the suicide of Romeo and Juliet. When one thinks of the title Friar, the title itself is a title of higher expectations. As a Friar, Friar Lawrence does not use his ability and skills wisely to marry the madly in love couple.
Romeo has a large influence on Romeo and Juliet’s death because, if Romeo wasn’t heartbroken over Rosaline and in “love” with Rosaline then he wouldn’t have went to the party to see her and accidently see Juliet and ended up marrying her when he knew he was heartbroken that Rosaline wanted to become a Nun. However, Lord Capulet is still the main person to blame for the deaths of Romeo And Juliet, just because he is to controlling and way too selfish Because, at the Capulet’s party Tybalt saw Romeo the Montague and he told Lord Capulet and Lord Capulet told Tybalt to leave Romeo alone cause he didn’t want his party ruined if he started something with the Montague. “Content thee, gentle coz, let him alone./ A bears him like a portly gentleman,/And, to say truth, Verona brags of him/ To be virtuous and well-governed youth./I would not for the wealth of all this town/ Here in my house do him disparagement./ Therefore be patient; take no note of him./ It is my will, which if thou respect,/ Show a fair presence and put off these frowns,/ An ill-beseeming semblance for a feast. (I, v,
The Friar should have stayed with her to keep her safe. The reason he came in the first place was to make sure Juliet was safe after she awoke. Friar ran away instead and Juliet died because Friar wasn’t there. In the big picture, Friar Lawrence is the one responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. He made many mistakes along the way including marrying them in secret and messing up his plan for them to escape to Mantua.
They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival. But even before Juliet knew it was Romeo she said, “If he’s married, I think I’ll die rather than marry anyone else.”(1.5.134-135).
William Shakespeare created a beautiful tale with both love and loss; it is called Romeo and Juliet. Romeo meets Juliet they fall in love and then kill themselves in a double suicide? This did not have to happen ,but did. Some blame Romeo and Juliet themselves and even the nurse, while they might have contributed into the death of the two star crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet were young; they didn 't know any better, and the nurse did not want Juliet to feel as though she betrayed her.
In this scene, Lord Capulet arranges Juliet's wedding with county Paris on Thursday. The Capulets are unaware of the fact that Juliet is married to Romeo. This is dramatic irony, because the audience knows Romeo and Juliet are married, but the Capulets are completely unaware of this fact. However, the audience knows that Juliet only took a sleeping potion, but Romeo thinks she is dead and he creates a plan to kill himself. “Let me have/A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear/ As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead,/And that the trunk may be discharged of breath/As violently as hasty powder fired/Doth hurry from the fatal cannon’s womb” (5.1.63-68).
The feud ends with numerous deaths including Romeo, Mercutio, Paris, Juliet, and Tybalt. Many of whom had nothing to do with the feud, but ended up in those situations because of the hate their parents instilled into their minds at such an early age. Of the many deaths in the play Mercutio’s was one of the most significant. His death occurred because he insisted on challenging Tybalt, who was looking for Romeo. Although his death may seem uneventful it is essential to the point that conflicts among families and friends only end tragically.
Romeo was in a hurry to see if his wife had really died, but in reality he just killed her, because it was fate. Some people might say that he didn’t have to kill himself he choose to do it, but in his world he did because he felt like he couldn’t live without her and if she was dead so was he. Some might also say that Romeo didn’t have to kill Tybalt, but they’re wrong because tybalt killed one of Romeo’s best friends and Romeo wasn’t just going to let that happen. In coming to conclusion it wasn’t free will that lead to the death of married couple, it was
The tale of Romeo and Juliet ends with the death of the two lovers. But there is a reason behind their passing. Friar Lawrence, a priest in Verona, had a big part of the play, and may be the reason for Romeo and Juliet to lay still forever in their graves. The friar was the one that devised the plan to fake Juliet’s death, but ran away in cowardice when he was afraid. Friar Lawrence was depended on by Romeo and Juliet with their secrets even though he was the only adult trusted in this situation other than the nurse.
What the Capulets did to Juliet explains why they were selfish because instead of respecting Juliet’s decision they thrash on her and say things to force her to become a wife. This disconnect with their daughter is why they were not able to save Juliet from death. The other factor that caused the demise of Romeo and Juliet was their want for their desires. For instants, Romeo did not think about the consequences of meeting with Juliet even though he was being hunted. For example, the balcony scene where Romeo is confessing his love to Juliet.
