He then performs the marriage of Romeo and Juliet and even fabricates a foolish plan to keep them together when Juliet is forced to marry Paris. He also leaves Juliet alone in the tomb after she awakens to find her beloved Romeo dead. Friar Lawrence is a moral man, but his hubris leads to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo considers the Friar someone he can confide in, and he tells the Friar of his newfound love for Juliet. The Friar’s excessive pride allows him to agree to wed Romeo and Juliet, hoping he can bring the Montagues and Capulets together, though these families hatred spans generations.
In times of tragedy, people look for answers and someone to blame. This is the case in William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet. The character, Friar Lawrence who was a trusted man of the cloth, allowed the two young protagonists Romeo and Juliet from opposing families to get married. Then later in the novel, he created a plan with the hope of the two lovers being together after they were separated by a tragic event, but ended with the two killing themselves. Being so, Friar Lawrence is the cause of the tragic ending in Romeo and Juliet, as he agreed to marry the two lovers without their parents permission, and devised a plan that ended with the lovers suicide.
Romeo and Juliet both discuss their love, Romeo from the garden and Juliet from her window. The exchange vows of love and devise a plan to be married in secret. Romeo’s heart could not accept “no” as an answer simply because both families forbade this interaction. Instead, his love for Juliet continued to drive through the barriers built by the family feud. Similarly, in Destino, when the male and female characters encounter each other, they both attempt to run toward one another.
Romeo is caught in the situation of killing someone without thinking twice about it more than once. When Romeo kills Tybalt out of anger, he doesn’t think about the repercussions this will have on his relationship with Juliet. Some may say the family feud is to blame for their death; however, from the start of the play, it is suggested that Romeo and Juliet were fated to die. Even if there wasn’t a family feud fate, which is what the whole story is based on, would’ve still played out and they would’ve died. Juliet is exceedingly impulsive.
After the Prince’s watchmen discover Romeo and Juliet dead in the Capulet family tomb, Friar Lawrence admits to marrying them and tells the Prince of Romeo and Juliet’s story: “Romeo, there dead, was husband to that Juliet; And she, there dead, that Romeo’s faithful wife. I married them” (V, iii, 231-233) Because of Friar Lawrence’s decision to marry Romeo and Juliet, events leading up to their deaths were able to take place. Many of these events could have been prevented if only the Friar did not agree to marry Romeo and Juliet in the first
When Romeo goes to a party he meets Juliet at he is still trying to get over a girl that he was so “in love with” and had been crying about. But, the instant he saw Juliet he “fell in love” and was over his past girl, Rosaline, like she had never existed. This comes to show that it was an act of desperation and rebounding. Right after Romeo sees Juliet he goes up to her and jumps right to it and ends up kissing her. Considering this, you can assume that the foolish teens were basing everything off of looks.
Act 3, Scene 5 “When Can I see You again?” by Owl City This song ties in to this scene, since Romeo had been banished from the city, and the only reason he is gloomy, is because he wants to be able to see his true love, Juliet. This ties into the song when it says, “Let me know before I wave goodbye, when can I see you again?” 7. Act 3, Scene 5 “Misery” by Maroon 5 For this scene I chose the song “Misery” by Maroon 5. The painful words sung throughout the song highlights the feeling Romeo went through when Mercutio was killed by Tybalt. The sadness in the lyrics go,” I am in misery, and there ain’t nobody who can confront me.” 8.
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet: a tragic tale of two paramours with a love so fatal, it ended in their own death. A death so full of love, that it cured the rift between the two families that had made it so lethal in the first place. This essay will be focusing on the the strategies used, by comparing two different adaptations of Romeo and Juliet, to create dramatic tension in the famous entitled ‘Balcony Scene’ or Act II Scene ii. Shakespeare’s intention in this scene was to showcase how raw, beautiful, and terrifying love really is: Romeo listens to Juliet, from the shadows, speaking of her beauty admiringly, even though he knows she cannot hear him, as she comes to a conclusion with herself on her feelings about him. When Romeo reveals himself to Juliet, it’ scary–not because he scared her per say, but rather it’s scary to think what would happen to him if he were to be caught: their families hate each other.
Romeo buys poison and drinks it next to Juliet’s body. Juliet wakes to find him dead, and also kills herself out of grief. Some may argue that the two lovers’ deaths were fate, but some argue free will. Fate being that they had no control over their death, and free will being they made the choice, and they had complete control. I think it was fate that caused Romeo and Juliet’s death.
The love between two teens, the drama, and tragedy is a strong plot for Romeo and Juliet. The new start of a girl who thought she lost her brother, the romance, and the happy ending doesn’t have a plot that connects a reader because it’s something that everyone expects. The reasons between the two will have evidence on plot, theme, and symbol to show how Romeo and Juliet a Shakespeare story shows more emotion than Twelfth night. The plot summary for Romeo and Juliet Stresses the accidental. From the start of the story it shows the dramatic life of both families, (Capulet and Montague).
