How would you describe Friar Lawrence from “Romeo and Juliet” in three adjectives? Here is how I would… The character of Friar Lawrence plays a critical role in William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” The play is about two families who have a feud dating back so far some of them don’t know what they are fighting about, which results in two star-crossed lovers from opposing families, whose illegal love causes the deaths of six people.

“And this distilled liquor drink thou off; When presently through all thy veins shall run. A cold and drowsy humor, for no pulse,” (S.S, pg. 453). Friar Lawrence quoted that he would help Juliet fake her death. This is why Friar Lawrence is the one to blame for causing the most trouble in Romeo and Juliet.

In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence’s insensibility causes him to give Romeo and Juliet rash advice, leading to the pair of star-crossed lovers’ ultimate doom. When Romeo seeks advice from Friar Lawrence in hopes that he can marry him with Juliet, the Friar agrees, in hope of “[turning the] households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3.99). However, as an adult, and as a man that others seek for help, Friar Lawrence should have put more thought into the different ways the families could react by the marriage. The Friar should have realized that there was a big possibility that the Capulets and Montagues would be angered by the wedding. Instead, he makes his decisions upon the improbable idea of reconcilement through marriage.
