The deaths of Romeo and Juliet can be blamed upon Friar Lawrence, the parents of Romeo and Juliet, and Tybalt. To begin, Romeo and Juliet’s deaths should be blamed upon Friar Lawrence. In the play, Romeo is asking Friar Lawrence to wed him to Juliet. Friar is telling Romeo to slow down and think about this decision, but still agrees to do it. Shakespeare writes, “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; for this alliance may so happy prove To turn your households’ to rancor to pure love” (Ⅱ.Ⅳ.90-92).
I married them, and their stol’n marriage day was Tybalt’s doomsday, whose untimely death banished the new-made bridgeroom from this city; for whom, and did not for Tybalt, Juliet pined. You, to remove that siege of grief from her, betrothed and would have married her perforce to County Paris.” (Shakespeare V. iii. 233-243). Friar Lawrence explains the sight of Romeo and Juliet corpses to the Night Watch and the two families that they were in love. He explains that the family feud would’ve been able to end if they were married, until Romeo was banished.
Fate is a power that some people believe determines a person’s future. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, fate prevents Romeo’s and Juliet’s intense love. The play is about these two teenagers during the Renaissance who fall in love, but they are from different families, Capulet and Montague who are in a prolonged quarrel. Despite the obstacles, Romeo and Juliet wed and a sequence of events cause Romeo and Juliet both to die. There are multiple occasions where fate gets in the way of Romeo and Juliet such as when Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo being banished, Juliet being forced to marry Paris, the failure of Romeo being informed of Juliet’s fake death and Romeo killing himself.
Falling in love is a great risk, so is it worth it to fall in love at sight? In the play Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare tells a story where there are two feuding sides who have one child who fall in love. On one side a guy named Romeo who is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet, that meet at the Capulet’s ball and show love at first sight and want to marry soon after. But later there 's a big fight that ends up banishing Romeo so Friar Lawrence comes in and he has a plan where Juliet could be with Romeo and would get out of marrying Paris. But the wedding moves up and the plan isn 't updated so Romeo thinks Juliet is dead and kills himself and then Juliet kills herself because she can 't live without Romeo.
Who holds all the responsibility for this classic tragedy. The most sensible answer is, Friar Laurence. He is the most to blame for the tragic events in Romeo and Juliet because he married the two lovers without thinking about the consequences it could bring, then he didn’t even tell the parents what he did until after the tragedy, and finally he was going to marry Juliet for the second time, if she didn’t take the poison. Friar Laurence is the most to blame for the event that occur in a Romeo and Juliet because when the two young lovers seeked him out to be married, he agreed, he said, “come, young waverer, come go with me. In one respect I 'll thy assistant be; For this alliance may [be] so happy” (Shakespeare 2.3.)
This is shown when Juliet and Romeo ask the Friar to marry the couple. The Friar has complete knowledge that the two households have a strong hate against each other yet, he marries the couple in good intention in hopes to heal the hate bond between the households. This plan does not work out because, Romeo (Montague) kills Tybalt (Capulet) which provokes a marriage between Paris and Juliet and the banishment of Romeo. Juliet asks the Friar what she could do in order to cancel the marriage. The Friar comes up with a plan to fake her death to avoid the marriage and send a letter to Romeo to notify she was not dead.
He forgot about Rosaline and falls in love with Juliet. They kiss and after the party they talk at Juliet’s balcony. After that they both decided to get married, so they get married with the help of Friar Laurence but they did not have permission from their family. Right after the marriage, Romeo kills Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, and is banished from Verona. Juliet’s father, Lord Capulet, forces Juliet to marry to Paris but she
Fate’s Hold on Romeo and Juliet It is very debatable whether people’s lives are controlled by fate or free will, however, fate’s grasp on these two young lovers is clearly shown in the text of this Elizabethan era play. The text that is to be discussed is William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the topic is about whether it is fate affecting the outcome of the play. Fate determines the aftermath of the play, due to bad timing, misfortune, and love. Bad timing of the events in this play led to the deaths of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. Capulet allowing Paris to marry Juliet is one of these such events.
But If Romeo and Juliet never met so many things would have happened differently. Romeo is to blame for the deaths of him and Juliet, Getting exiled from the town, and Juliet and Paris aren 't getting married. Romeo came into the picture and ruined the plans that Juliet’s family had set out for her. Since Romeo came to the Capulet’s party he and Juliet laid eyes on each other and instantly fell in love. This messed everything up because that is where Juliet and Paris were supposed to meet.
“For never was a story of more woe / Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” (Shakespeare V.iii.569-570). How did the decisions and mindsets of the characters lead to such a tragic ending? Hence, Romeo and Juliet, the classic play about two star-crossed lovers from feuding families, written by William Shakespeare, illustrates how the consequences of our actions can often be far worse than imagined. The play opens as they fall in love and get married, but Romeo faces exile for killing Juliet’s cousin in a fight and they both eventually commit suicide when they are not able to be together, leading their families to finally make peace. Evidently, Shakespeare argues that it is important to make decisions based on logical reasoning rather than let ourselves be influenced by strong emotions because it will allow us to truly understand the consequences, protect our loved ones, and maintain autonomy over our own lives.
