Romeo and Juliet, what a tragedy! Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, is about two star-crossed lovers that falls in love but their families are enemies. They want to be together but conflicts keep occurring that separates them further from each other. Friar Lawrence is a good mentor and did do the "right thing" in his relationship with Romeo and Juliet. He helps Romeo and Juliet by keeping their relationship a secret when they were alive, stops Juliet from killing herself by giving her the potion, and creates peace between the Capulet and Montague Families by marrying Romeo and Juliet.
When Friar John returns Friar LaThe person at most fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet is Friar Lawrence. The Friar married the couple hoping for a good outcome but it came out in death and it was at fault of the Friar. The Friar had good intentions by helping Romeo and Juliet by getting married. The Friar thought things out and thought that them being married would end the family feud. The Friar is telling Romeo how the marriage could end the feud.
Shakespeare states in the prologue “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life/Whose misadventured piteous overthrows/Doth with their death bury their parents' strife,” (Shakespeare Prologue.6-8). Most scholars identify that those lines are explaining that Romeo and Juliet fall in love with each other and become lovers, despite being member of opposite families in the feud. With friar marrying the Friar marrying the teens together leads them one step closer to their tragic death, and ending the disastrous feud. Another way to fully analyze this idea is when Romeo approaches Friar Laurence to ask him to marry him with Juliet. In the text when the Friar finally gets through to the shock of the surprising news he then states “For this alliance may so happy prove/To turn your households' rancor to pure love,” (Shakespeare II.iii.91-92).
William Shakespeare 's play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, is about two star-crossed lovers who end their lives because of their love for one another. Romeo is a Montagues and Juliet is a Capulet, therefore these two can 't be together because they come from rivalling families. At the end of the play, the Prince says: “Some shall be pardon’d , and some punished”(V.III.307). The people who should be punished for the death of Romeo and Juliet are: Lord Capulet and Friar Laurence, and the person who should be pardoned is the Nurse. Juliet’s parents, especially Lord Capulet, should be punished for the death of Romeo and Juliet.
Fate has the most toil on Romeo and Juliet because it causes the families to bicker, it brings Romeo and Juliet together at the party, it sends Friar Lawrence to marry them , it unables Romeo to receive the message about Juliet , it awakens Juliet about two minutes too late, and tragically kills the two star-crossed lovers. The long family 's feuds, Friar Lawrence, and fate all contribute to the death of Romeo and Juliet, but fate is put most to
Friar Lawrence is responsible for Romeo and Juliet 's deaths. Friar Lawrence is responsible because he is the one who married them.

Friar Laurence states, “violent delights” 2.2.9-15) This quote shows how wize Friar Laurence is because he knows that the marriage between Romeo and Juliet was being rushed. Friar Laurence states, “the sweetest honey is loathsome” (2.6.9-15). Friar Laurence is saying that even things that are amazing at first can turn out to be terrible. Friar Laurence is a wize man who helps Romeo and Juliet in the hope that their marriage would end the two families feuds. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses figurative language to help his audience understand what each character is like and how he or she will act.
In Beatdom #11, Zeena Schrek wrote “When we don’t put the brakes on our self-absorption, we have nothing stopping us from total self-destruction. We become the fruits of our actions.” Her words ring true in William Shakespeare's play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. In this cataclysmic tale,Romeo and Juliet, the children of two feuding families fall in love and become married in secret. A day later, Romeo is banished and against her own wishes, Juliet accepts a separate marriage proposal. In a desperate attempt to reunite them free of familial burdens, Friar Lawrence devises a plan for Juliet to fake her death and run away with her husband.
He decided to fake Juliet 's death in order to help her out of her bind and unite her with Romeo in Mantua. For this reason, he gave her “a sleeping potion, which so took effect” (Act 5, Scene 3, Line __) to drink that would keep her in a death-like state for forty-two hours. Meanwhile, he sent a letter to inform Romeo of the plan, but it never reached him. Instead of delivering the letter himself, he gave the letter to Friar John to deliver it. However, Friar Laurence forgot to tell the messenger the significance of the letter.
Introduction: When people feel that they can freely express their frustrations, and feel that they are unpleased with an opinion from a government or kingdom. These types of people (such as Romeo) will often feel an uncontrolled urge to take matters into their own hands. And this will lead up to finding them in an act of defiance. Additionally, this is what makes our main heroine Romeo defies his family (or house) and marries Juliet without their acknowledgment. Body paragraphs: Romeo has a strong desire to help end the family feud, Romeo’s strong will to go against the house Capulet and marry Juliet.
As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage,” (3.2.61-65). Despite the Friar’s warnings, Romeo still went along with the marriage. Some may think that Friar Lawrence is a bigger part of Romeo and Juliet’s deaths than Romeo is because the Friar would rather end the Montague- Capulet feud than keep the two lovers together. All in all his plans to end the feud with Juliet drinking the poison fails with Romeo and Juliet dying. This argument doesn’t consider how sad the Friar was when he found out about the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
Friar Laurence states ¨in one respect I´ll assist be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households rancor to pure love¨(980) This is saying that not knowing what marrying Romeo and Juliet could cause, but he did it anyway. Little did he know that is would wound up with both of them dead. He thought that if they were married, nothing could go wrong. The friar thought there would be a happily ever after. If he never married them, then Juliet would learn that she has to do what she told, and not go behind her parents back.
By allowing Romeo’s persuasive words and undying passion for Juliet to persuade him to go along with the wedding, he put them both in a risky situation which led to their demise. Even though both Romeo and Friar hoped for a happy ending with the Montagues and Capulets, it did not end up that way. Despite their good intentions, both characters contributed to the deaths in this tragic play. All of the mistakes made prove enemies can never be

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.
