Is death worth proving love? In the play Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, all Romeo and Juliet do is try to prove their love to each other. A family feud between the Capulets and the Montagues continues to trail on, making Romeo and Juliet’s love forbidden, until death ends it all. Many are at fault such as: Juliet’s nurse that acts the messenger between the two teens, or Balthazar who goes behind Lord Montague’s back to keep the secret of Romeo and Juliet’s marriage. Nonetheless one person is at most to blame and his name is Friar Lawrence.
The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is the tale of two rival families, the Montague and the Capulet. The son of the Montague family is Romeo and the daughter of the Capulet of Juliet. The two meet at a party hosted by the Capulet family and eventually fall in love. Romeo and Juliet agree to get married the following day, but the Capulet king is arranging for Juliet to get married to a kinsman named Paris. In order to prevent this, Friar Laurence gives Juliet a sleeping potion to make it seem like she had died.
He proposes that she should agree with her father and marry Paris. However, he will give her a sleep potion which will make her seem dead. And when she wakes up in the family vault, he will send Romeo to pick her up. She will then return to Mantua with Romeo and both of them will be freed from the family feud. She gives in her father’s proposal and promises to marry Paris.
¨because I’m done worrying about you¨. This shows that they would not care for Juliet if she did not marry Paris. They did not care what she said forcing her into something she does not want to do therefore making her desperate and ready to do anything no matter how crazy one might feel it is. Act 4 scene 1 line 81. ¨ you can tell me to sit in a field of poisonous snakes¨.
Friar Lawrence was the one who caused all of this; he married Romeo and Juliet know that he had to marry Juliet and Paris. He knew he could be shamed for doing this; his confession to the prince even says, “Romeo, there dead, was husband to that Juliet, And she, there dead, that Romeo’s faithful wife.I married them, and their stol'n marriage day Was Tybalt’s doomsday, whose untimely death Banished the new-made bridegroom from the city— For whom, and not for Tybalt, Juliet pined. You, to remove that siege of grief from her, Betrothed and would have married her perforce To County Paris. Then comes she to me, And with wild looks bid me devise some mean To rid her from this second marriage, Or in my cell there would she kill herself. Then gave I her, so tutored by my art, A sleeping potion, which so took effect As I intended, for it wrought on
Exit ROMEO (Act 3 Scene 1) The town monk, Friar Lawrence, may be more kind than wise. He takes pity on the kids and, with the help of Juliet's nurse, marries them against their parents' wishes. When Romeo is banished, a heartbroken Juliet visits her trusted spiritual advisor for help. Friar Lawrence, who is also an expert apothecary, mixes a potion that will make Juliet appear dead for at least two days. This should give his assistant, Friar John, enough time to get to Romeo and explain their master plan.
Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy because They both kill themselves over love. Two innocent lovers die a young tragic death. Romeo instantly falls in love with Juliet after being depressed about Rosaline, before the masquerade saying that he would never find someone better than Rosaline. Even the title is “Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.” If this is not a tragedy, then what is? Romeo kills himself over Juliet.
Drinking. O true apothecary, Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss, I die.” (5.3.88-120) Romeo has just committed suicide because of the love he has for Juliet . The “drugs” that he is talking about have two meanings, one of which is that the drugs represent his deathly emotions of love, on the other hand, he has just drunk a poison because of the thought of not being with Juliet . When saying “with a kiss I die.” Shakespeare uses the kiss to represent that this is what is killing him, so in other words, Romeo’s love for Juliet is worth dying for.
Are Romeo and Juliet truly affectionate towards each other? How would know? Romeo and Juliet is about two “star crossed lovers” that are unable to meet under the circumstances of their parents. Juliet 's family, the Capulets have a strong hate towards Romeo 's family, the Montagues. Juliet is so in love with Romeo that when he finds her mistakenly dead he takes a deadly potion that kills him almost instantly.
