Rather being true mentors and guiding them, they are allowing this quick marriage to happen. Friar isn’t agreeing with the idea of marriage until Romeo persuaded him enough to say that “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be;/ For this alliance may so happy prove/To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (II.iii.90-93). Since Friar is a holy man, he is trying to act like God, and is trying to fix the feud between the two households by marrying
In one respect I 'll thy assistant be; For this alliance may [be] so happy” (Shakespeare 2.3.) He is telling Romeo “I will”. I will marry you because this marriage could be happy, or as he didn’t say, it could turn into a tragedy. “These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die” (Shakespeare 2.6.) At first it seems like he is warning Romeo that this won 't turn out the way he wants it to.
“Romeo, who lies there dead, was the husband of that Juliet. And she, who lies there dead, was that Romeo’s faithful wife. I married them; their secret wedding day was the day Tybalt died. His untimely death caused the bridegroom to be banished from the city,”(5.3.281, Shakespeare) In William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, the deaths of the two title characters are both Romeo and Juliet. Much could have been done to prevent their suicides, but these “star-crossed lovers” ultimately are not able to avoid their destiny.
Around 1594 Shakespeare wrote the romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet. This story has an intricate plot line; the two lovers prevail from rivaling families, after falling in love they marry, and intend to run away to live together. From thereafter a series of actions lead to their untimely death, for which the blame is never established in the story. This allows for a discussion on who truly had the most impact in the fate of the couple. Over the course of the story you are revealed that a number of characters took some part in developing the story, one of them being the nurse.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, a play set in the fourteenth century, two young lovers experience the fluctuations of love as they fend off all the obstacles that their families and friends create. Friar Laurence plays a part in their deaths due to his lack of urgency and his inconsiderate decisions.The Nurse is also responsible for their deaths because of her betrayal and her dishonesty. Finally, Capulet is also responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths because of his selfish and ignorant actions. The irresponsible actions of Capulet, Friar Laurence, and the Nurse lead to the tragic suicide of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Laurence’s rash action in marrying Juliet, his hasty plan to avert Juliet from an unwanted marriage with Paris, and his failure to get his message delivered to Romeo in time all contribute to the death of Romeo and Juliet.
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to talk to someone but you couldn 't due to problems in the past? If you can relate to this, I would recommend reading Romeo and Juliet. In the story Romeo and Juliet, Lord and Lady Montague and Lord and Lady Capulet are ultimately at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Due to lord and lady capulet and montague continuing their everlasting feud, romeo and juliet both ended up committing suicide. Both romeo and juliet believed that they could not live without one another so when romeo mistakenly thought juliet died, he killed himself which led to the death of juliet.
Juliet and the Friar even made a plan, because Juliet 's father ( Mr.Capulet ) moved the wedding day for her to marry Paris closer so Juliet had to fake her death. The whole plan was for The Friar to give Juliet a plant to basically put her into a very deep sleep and slow her heart down so it was as if she was dead. Then The Friar would notify Romeo so he doesn 't think that Juliet is really dead. He would then give the letter to The Friar John, who was supposed to give it to Romeo. That didn 't work so much because Romeo ends up getting poison from someone and drinks it and dies, then Juliet wakes up and she
Then the Capulet decided to organize a house gathering so that Count Paris can court Juliet. So as Benvolio came to his cousin Romeo they discussed that Romeo is in love with Rosaline, a numb girl who never returns a favor, Benvolio is trying to convince Romeo to find a better girl than Rosaline, a more beautiful one, then benvolio agreed that they will come to the gathering, Romeo only agreed because Rosaline was there not knowing that he will find someone better than
At this point, Juliet is unaware of his name and demands that the nurse tells her. ‘His name is Romeo, and a Montague, The only son of your enemy’ Juliet is clearly quite distraught and replies with a very emotional line, ‘My only love sprung from my only hate’. The contrast of love/hate, in my opinion is very powerful. It illustrates Juliet’s raw emotions and feelings for Romeo. She continues to add, ‘Too early seen unknown, and known too late’.
Romeo and Juliet: Friar Laurence is to Blame In Romeo and Juliet, Friar Laurence plays a major role in the deaths of the pair. The Friar is a member of the Order of St. Francis, a group of wise and generous priests, Romeo and Juliet trusted Friar Laurence and his insight, turning to him for advice, and solutions. However, Friar Laurence’s rash decision in marrying Romeo and Juliet, his reckless plan for rescuing Juliet from an arranged marriage with Paris, and his fear of committing sin all added to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. He was there throughout Romeo’s and Juliet 's lives; he married them, came up with a plan to keep them together, and was a friend throughout their tragedies. Friar Laurence, through his lack of good
