Shakespeare’s portrayal of Juliet in this manner reverses traditional gender roles and by setting up a dramatic final scene in which Juliet makes the ultimate sacrifice for Romeo. When Juliet sees Romeo lying dead in the vault, she rushes to him, sees that he had died of poison, and says, “O churl, drunk all, and left no friendly drop/ To help me after!” (5.3.168). Without hesitation Juliet decides that life without Romeo is not worth living, unlike Romeo who shows fear when he waffles over the concept of death. Once Juliet realizes that there is no poison left for her,
To take the plan into action, Juliet drinks a potion that makes her appear dead (Act IV Scene III). She is then put in the tomb where Romeo is supposed to rescue her. Unfortunately, news of the plan never reaches Romeo, and he receives word that she is dead (Act V Scene I). Overwhelmed by grief, Romeo buys poison from an apothecary, and then goes to visit Juliet’s tomb where he encounters Paris (Act V Scene III). After killing the suitor, Romeo sees his lover who he believes to be dead, and drinks the poison.
After Juliet woke up and saw that Romeo was dead, Friar Lawrence left her alone in Capulet’s tomb instead of making sure she wouldn’t do anything dangerous. After the ball, Juliet tells her parents that she doesn’t want to marry Paris because she is too young, but the truth is, she is already in love with Romeo. Her parents don’t agree with her and decided she is going to marry in
Then juliet ask’s her nanny for help the nanny say’s she can’t help her right now at all. So now Juliet is goes to the Frier for help and Frier says he can’t help at first. So then Juliet say then kill me then with a dagger in her arm. Just a few seconds later the Frier says ii can help you you just have to drink this potion and you will be “died” to the people and we will let romeo know that to come get you. So later that night right before she drank the potion she said “ how if, when I am laid into the tomb, I wake before the time that romeo come to redeem me?
She gives in her father’s proposal and promises to marry Paris. The Capulets prepare the wedding and Juliet takes the potion. In the next morning, Juliet won’t wake up and Friar Lawrence claims her as ‘dead’ – knowing that she is only sleeping. In Mantua Romeo receives the news that Juliet is death, however he did not get a letter from Friar Lawrence in which the plan of her pretend death is described. He makes up his mind and wants to lie down next to her in the family tomb.
“Here’s to my love! O the apothecary! The drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die” says Romeo Montague (act 5 scene 3 line 119.) This quote is said when Romeo is at Juliet’s grave getting ready to drink the poison because he thinks Juliet is dead and he wants to be with his love forever.
Have you ever just wanted to run away or even scream to the top of your lungs?That’s how Juliet felt when everyone was sculpting her life which drove her to want to die, but if I had to blame this on one person it would definitely be Friar Lawrence(William Shakespeare, page 376). Friar never had to give in to marrying Romeo and Juliet,or give the potion and crazy idea to fake Juliet 's death(William Shakespeare, page 453-454).If Juliet didn’t want to marry Paris, then she should have put on her big girl pants and told her parents that she was already married to Romeo and in love.If they were so in love the idea of death for them being together shouldn’t scare them, they both die anyways.If the Friar thought the idea of them being together was worse then he didn’t have to marry them. See in this world we live in you don’t have to do what other people want you to do. Friar deciding not to marry them wouldn’t put him in a death sentence if anything, it would have helped everyone not die.People in Shakespeare 's world are just foolish. Friar Lawrence could have easily went and took the letter to Romeo himself, but instead he had to be lazy and have someone else do it and look it never got done(William Shakespeare, page
Paris offers to marry Juliet and her dad finally chooses himself that she will and sets a date. Juliet is in love with Romeo and does not agree to marry Paris. She is furious with her father, but her father is furious that she is in love with a Montague. Juliet shouts, “Now, by Saint Peter’s Church and Peter too, / He shall not make me there a joyful bride.” (3.5.116-117). In this quote, Juliet had just figured out that her father had planned her to marry Paris without her consent and she is not happy about it.
The plan would have worked out as planned if it was not for Juliet’s parents suddenly making the decision to marry her to Paris, and they would be married very soon. 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.
Plus Romeo and Paris are very noble. They try their hardest they can to not get into fights. Even though Romeo killed Paris he honored him by fulfilling his request which was to lie next to Juliet. While two young men by the name of Romeo and Paris, share the same love for the same Juliet but are different in many ways and alike in many ways. All Romeo and Juliet wanted to do was get married to each other, but instead they committed suicide because their family wouldn’t let them be together.
