Lord Capulet who also known as Juliet’s father, wants to make all Capulets happy from the grief of Tybalt’s death by using Juliet. But Juliet does not want to follow Lord Capulet’s order. Which is married to Paris, even it will be the good news for all Capulets. Juliet doesn’t want to marry Paris because she loves Romeo and both of them are already married by Friar Lawrence. So Juliet finds the way to avoid the wedding by Friar Lawrence’s helping.
This is because in the beginning he blindly agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet later bringing consequences in the play. Friar Lawrence is guilty because he gave the potion to Juliet and from that event and forward events started taking a horrible twist. All in all, the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare reflects the reality of love and its consequences and it also teaches us to not fool with young love or you can have consequences in your
My wife! Death, that hath sucked the honey of thy breath, Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty” (Shakespeare 223). This is an example of Romeo believing that Juliet is dead. But before Romeo came to the Capulet’s tomb he had a plan that if she was dead that he would kill himself, so Romeo went to a poor apothecary and bought poison. Which leads to the resolution of the
This example displays Romeo being able to take risks for Juliet. He risks getting caught by a Capulet but does it anyway to go see his love, Juliet. Another way that Romeo takes a risk for Juliet is when he is willing to go back to Verona after he got exiled from there. He got word that Juliet has died, he decides to buy poison and go to Verona, where Juliet’s grave
When the nurse goes to tell Romeo this information, she informs him of this man, Paris, who is pining for Juliet’s love, but she also tells him that Juliet has no feelings for Paris, only for him, Romeo. This exchange of information shows that the nurse wants Romeo to know how Juliet feels because she wants them to stay together. Later, when Juliet is convinced that she is in love with Romeo, the nurse tells her she made the wrong choice. She says, “Well, you have made a simple choice; you know how to/ choose a man: Romeo! / ...he is not the flower of courtesy” (40).
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the title characters make impulsive decisions from the moment they are introduced to the audience. For example, during the first moments of meeting in Act I, both Romeo and Juliet profess their love for each other and Juliet even claims, in seeking out Romeo’s identity, that “If he is married, My grave is like to be my wedding bed” (Shakespeare 396). Juliet, in these lines, is stating that if she cannot have Romeo, she would rather die than be with anyone else. This behavior is rather surprising, as Juliet has just met Romeo and knows nothing about him. The article, “Beautiful Brains” addresses studies and findings on how the development of the teenage brain correlates with impulsive behavior in teenagers stating, “We all like new and exciting things, but we never value them more highly than we do during adolescence.
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). The evidence shows Friar agreeing to wed the two because it could end the feud. Friar should have denied Romeo request because if they hadn’t gotten married, they could have been less overwhelmed and lived their whole life. The Friar had good intentions, but he just wasn’t realistic enough. Later in the play, Paris wanted to marry Juliet, so the parents arranged it and Juliet was not pleased.
Romeo believes this and drinks poison to be with her.Juliet wakes to find Romeo dead and kills herself with his dagger. We see what can happen in all of these situations. Arranged marriages by parents shouldn’t be allowed because it increases the risk of suicide, it determines if a person must move back to the country where their parents live, and it causes depression in
The Nurse attempts to train Juliet to be more rational through telling her to marry County Paris instead of being with Romeo. After Juliet marries Romeo, he engages in a quarrel which results in the deaths of Mercutio, a close friend to Romeo, and Tyablt, Juliet’s cousin, as well as his banishment from Verona. Because of this, the Nurse tries to coerce Juliet into marrying County Paris, a kinsman to Prince Escalus, the Prince of Verona. Through logic and reason, she deduces that County Paris is better marriage material and that Juliet is “happy in this second match/ for it excels her first” (III.V.225-226) Feeling betrayed by her confidante, Juliet turns to the help of the local monk, Friar Lawrence, without the Nurse’s knowing. Friar Laurence devises a plan in order to reunite the two lovers.
Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her. The friar 's inability to succesfully delivering the letter to Romeo stating that Juliet was alive was a gap that caused romeo to make his harsh decision, but it was too late once he got to the tomb. Upon killing Paris and himself with the poison, Romeo fell beside Juliet, whom stabbed herself once she awoke upon seeing Romeo dead before her eyes. Had Romeo and Juliet respected their families wishes, had they not gone into secrecy, had their relatives stayed out of their love, they wouldnt have blindly caused
