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). She is saying that if this individual she just met is married, she rather die than marry anyone else, but when she gets told that its Romeo she knows he's not married but it is her worst rival. So Juliet could use this to escape marrying Paris, but also escape the family feuds. They weren’t in love because they were using this marriage to escape their families and other
I long to die If what thou speak’st speak not of remedy. (3.1.61-67) Juliet was so sad about Romeo being banished that she had to find another way to be without Romeo. She thought that death or faking her death would be best. Friar told Juliet forty eight hours after she took the potion she would wake up and be with Romeo, but fate had a different plan. This then leads to Romeo coming back to Juliet.
Lord Capulet Is telling Juliet that she has to get married to Paris or she will get kicked out and she will have to live on her own. He says he will kick her out. With him saying this it makes Juliet want to do anything to not get married to Paris so she drinks the potion. Strongly believe Lord Capulet should be punished. In Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence and Lord Capulet should be punished, and Benvolio should be pardoned.
The most defiant choice that Romeo and Juliet take for their love is their choice to be married. Juliet knows that her father or anyone in her family would not approve of this choice, but she still does it cause she loves Romeo. This love struck mentality drives Romeo and Juliet to be married and this secret marriage causes turmoil when Lord Capulet demands Juliet to marry Paris. Although Juliet knows that she is already married to Romeo loyal to him, not Paris and refuses to marry “doth Paris” (Shakespeare.III.v.145). Juliet only loves Romeo so this drives her to go to Friar Laurence whereupon attempted suicide he prescribes a potion that will make her appear dead.
/ Ah, word ill urged to one that is so ill! / In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman.”(1.1.197-199) Romeo only marries Juliet to ease the pain of heartbreak from Rosaline. Juliet isn’t in love with Romeo either. Just before Juliet meets Romeo for the first time she says she is not ready to be married. Her mother says, “LADY CAPULET: Marry, that 'marry ' is the very theme / I came to talk of.
Throughout The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet disobey their parents multiple times. Two examples are when Juliet rejects marrying Paris and when Romeo and Juliet get married. When Juliet rejects marrying Paris, her parents get mad and tell her that she has to marry Paris anyways. “I pray you tell my lord and father, madam, I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear It shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris. These are news indeed (III.v.
The Friar is a big part about miscommunication in this play and this is a big part of it, he is planning on still marrying Paris and Juliet because he ever got permission to marry Romeo and to Juliet, causing him either to get in trouble or continue to lie. It gets to the point where he gives Juliet a potion to make her sleep and disappear so he never gets
As a result, Juliet was so repulsed by the idea of marrying Paris since she had had the chance to fall in love with Romeo. The only way to avoid the marriage was for Juliet to drink the potion, causing Romeo to think Juliet was dead, and ultimately resulting in the death of both Romeo and Juliet. Therefore, Lord Capulet should have either said that Juliet would have to
Seeking to flee her father’s demands about marrying Paris, Juliet ran to Friar Lawrence in pursuit of a plan, or else threatening to take her own life. Once Friar Lawrence finally gave in to Juliet’s pleas, he comforted her by saying, “Let not the Nurse lie with thee in thy chamber. / Take thou this vial, being then in bed, / And this distilling liquor drink thou off” (4.1.92-94). This proposition made the entire Capulet family believe that Juliet was dead, but unfortunately it was not passed on to Romeo in the right means, which made him believe that Juliet was truly dead. Romeo found no alternative reason to live if he could not be with her, and planned to kill himself.
With this quote, the teenage brain makes choices with consequences, look for new sensations, and seek out social and emotional information. During the second scene of Act II, Romeo and Juliet make the decision to marry each other hours after meeting at the Capulet party. Romeo seeks out Friar Lawrence to ask, “but this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today” (Shakespeare 410). Here Romeo is asking Friar Lawrence to marry them that same day, even though he and Juliet met the night before. Both the audience and Friar Lawrence are surprised by this, as only twenty four hours earlier Romeo was in love with Rosaline and depressed that she did not love him back.
Ever since they laid eye’s on one another, Romeo and Juliet continuously formulate careless decisions, such as determining to get married. Romeo and Juliet make the rash decision on “Thy purpose marriage,” and Romeo must “send [Juliet] word tomorrow,” (2.2.149). During the couples discreet encounter, Juliet audaciously agrees to send someone at nine o’clock the next day to discuss marital arrangements with Romeo. This lackadaisical decision to marry one another express the recklessness behind the young romance. Young love causes people to devise imprudent decisions without pondering the ramifications it may
In William Shakespeare 's classic play, Romeo and Juliet, there are two families that have a bitter rivalry but, there is a little love in the air that ends with severe depression. There is one person to blame for letting the depression get worse. Friar Lawrence thinks that everyone should like each other and not dislike anyone. He also makes potions to change people and not letting time change them. Friar Lawrence is undoubtedly to blame for the tragic, depressing events that unfold the “loving” play, Romeo and Juliet.
The first event that would make Lord Capulet responsible is, Juliet was put in a very bad position because of Lord Capulets threats. She decided that she had to fake her death to get out of the marriage with Paris. This would benefit Juliet greatly because she would get out of town and she could live her own life with Romeo. “Hold, then. Go home, be merry, give consent to marry Paris.
Through Juliet 's conversation of Romeo and Tybalt with her mother, Shakespeare again reveals that love is closely followed by violence. Juliet’s mother enters Juliet’s room the moment after Romeo leaves. She speaks with Juliet about her plans to kill Romeo. During their conversation Juliet speaks of Romeo in a loving way without Lady Capulet noticing. Lady Capulet asks if killing Romeo will make her happy and Juliet replies saying “Indeed, I never shall be satisfied / With Romeo till I behold him—dead— Is my poor heart, so for a kinsman vexed” (3.5.98-100).
