In the tomb he says, “Stay not to question, for the watch is coming; come, go, good Juliet. I dare not stay longer.”(5.3.158-159). Instead of staying with her, he was afraid of the consequence if he was caught there, so he fled and soon after he fled Juliet sacrificed herself to be with Romeo. If Friar Lawrence had stayed with Juliet and not have been scared over the consequence, Juliet could have
Romeo was furious that Tybalt had killed one of his best friends, so he decided to jump in. However, The Montagues and Capulets aren't supposed to brawl in the public, so Romeo got banished from Verona because of his behavior. He blames the killing of Tybalt on fate because he believed it was “destined to happen” even though it was Romeo’s decision to continue the violence. Similarly, at the beginning of the play, once Juliet laid eyes on Romeo, she wanted to marry him. She directs the nurse to go find out Romeo’s identity and if he had a wife.
However, Romeo does not know that and therefore is going to Juliet’s tomb to kill himself with her. This creates a very suspenseful tone because all of the audience still wants Romeo and Juliet to live, even though the audience was told from the beginning that they were not going to win. Therefore suspense is all around because nobody wants Romeo to kill himself and everyone is just waiting for Juliet to wake up. Shakespeare also uses this dramatic irony when Romeo is saying that Juliet is the “Paramour” of death, meaning she is having an affair with death. Romeo is only saying this because of how well he thinks death is treating her and her looks.
/ Wife, go you to ere you go to bed; / Acquaint her here of my son Paris’s love (3.4.12-16). This quotation shows that Capulet is taking Juliet’s feelings into consideration and thinks that marrying Juliet to Paris will cheer her up after Tybalt’s death. Capulet postponed Juliet’s marriage because he thought she was too young and he
The fourth and final accusation is that the Friar did not stay in the tomb when Juliet was mourning Romeo’s death. He should have known that Juliet was going to try and kill herself, because she tried to take the last of the poison the Apothecary gave to Romeo while he was still in the room. Friar Laurence plays a major role in their deaths since he is a priest, they trusted him, and looked to him for advice and
The Friar is a big part about miscommunication in this play and this is a big part of it, he is planning on still marrying Paris and Juliet because he ever got permission to marry Romeo and to Juliet, causing him either to get in trouble or continue to lie. It gets to the point where he gives Juliet a potion to make her sleep and disappear so he never gets
I 've got one word to describe that, stupid.Just thinking about someone falling in love and killing themselves at the age of 13 is just stupid to me. The Friar wasn’t strict enough to say no and the Capulets were too strict to let Juliet live her life with Romeo.If there is one thing I have learned from this story, it’s that you always want to meet your other half 's family. Especially once you
“A mentor to both Romeo and Juliet, Friar Laurence constantly advises them to act with more caution and moderation, even though he doesn't wait too long before agreeing to marry off these two crazy kids.” (Shmoop.com). Friar’s attempt to make the main characters happy by marrying them, in the end, turned the story into a tragedy. Another very important relationship in the book is between the Nurse and Juliet. The Nurse tries to help Juliet by going to talk to Romeo about the upcoming wedding, instead she takes forever and makes Juliet very nervous. “The clock struck nine when I did send the nurse; in half an hours she promised to return.” (Shakespeare 1083).
Nurse should be punished. Nurse should be punished because she knew that Romeo and Juliet were married and she didn’t tell anybody about it, so that caused all of this to happen. “Is your man secret? Did you ne'er hear say, Two may keep counsel, putting one away?” (1.4.1).This shows that she new about the marriage and because of that, she should be punished because she caused Romeo and Juliet to kill herself. Also because of this it caused Lady Montague to kill herself
Juliet wanted to be with Romeo and she would stop at nothing to get him so she went and talked to Friar Lawrence to get a poison that would make her seem dead so she wouldn’t have to marry Paris. Juliet could have just left and been with Romeo there is no difference between her faking her death and leaving. Juliet could have made better choices, but she was too young and hadn’t known any better. Juliet and her parents are not the only reasons behind why the story ended the way it did. They had a lot to do with it, Every character in the play had something to do with why the play ended the way it did.
