In this scene, Lord Capulet arranges Juliet's wedding with county Paris on Thursday. The Capulets are unaware of the fact that Juliet is married to Romeo. This is dramatic irony, because the audience knows Romeo and Juliet are married, but the Capulets are completely unaware of this fact. However, the audience knows that Juliet only took a sleeping potion, but Romeo thinks she is dead and he creates a plan to kill himself. “Let me have/A dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear/ As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead,/And that the trunk may be discharged of breath/As violently as hasty powder fired/Doth hurry from the fatal cannon’s womb” (5.1.63-68).
Iago has no proof that desdemona is cheating but because of his persuasive words and honest reputation othello believes him. Iago starts to mess with othello 's thoughts. Soon othello starts thinking and eventually planning his wife 's murder.Othello says to desdemona while trying to strangle her, Out, strumpet weep’st thou for him to my face...it is too late (Shakespeare 5.276-83). Othello is telling desdemona it 's too late to apologize for her cheating, no amount of tears will fix what she did. Othello has no evidence for believing desdemona slept with cassio.
She says, “What if this mixture do not work at all? Shall I be married then tomorrow morning?... What if it be a poison which friar subtly hath minist’red to have me dead” which shows how nervous she is to take the potion. Juliet talking to herself proves to the reader that her love for Romeo will overpower her hate for the family feuding and her nerves for dying when taking the
I long to die If what thou speak’st speak not of remedy. (3.1.61-67) Juliet was so sad about Romeo being banished that she had to find another way to be without Romeo. She thought that death or faking her death would be best. Friar told Juliet forty eight hours after she took the potion she would wake up and be with Romeo, but fate had a different plan. This then leads to Romeo coming back to Juliet.
This strategy would have let Romeo come and sweep her out of death and take them into a new life together. This was a terrible arrangement since the Friar was not completely sure if the potion would put her in a short death-like coma or kill her. The third reason he takes some blame is because he did not get the message containing the layout of the plan to fake Juliet’s death. The Friar should have delivered the course of action or told Romeo in person earlier, before Juliet drank the potion. The fourth and final accusation is that the Friar did not stay in the tomb when Juliet was mourning Romeo’s death.
When Romeo drinks the poison he does it because he doesn’t take the time to make sure that his love is actually dead and drinks it even though she was just sleeping “Here’s to my love! O true apothec’ry, thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die.” this line explains that he doesn’t believe life is worth living if Juliet isn’t alive, but the dramatic irony in this scene tells us that Shakespeare is really trying to say “think through you actions and take your time” because if Romeo had just taken a little more time to think things over he would have found an alive Juliet and they would have both survived to live another day. Juliet’s death was inspired by her finding her only love lying on the tomb floor next to her when she awoke from her sleep. She gets left alone and decides to take her own life “O, happy dagger!
True love is supposed to be the best. It shouldn't cause you to take the lives of one of your friends and family members, then end up killing yourself. This “love” tortures everyone involved, causing nothing but pain and suffering. For example, in Act 5 Scene 1, Romeo says “An if a man did need a poison now — Whose sale is present death in Mantua— Here lives a caitiff wretch would sell it him.” (5.1.52-54) Romeo is shown trying to think of who would sell him poison to kill himself just minutes after he discovered Juliet's apparent fate. Romeo is willing to end his own life over a girl he met not even a week ago.
This potion will feign her death for forty two hours by putting her in a cold, death like, deep sleep. Juliet has a fearful thought that in fact the sleeping potion is a pernicious poison and the Friar is trying to kill her. However, she assuages these fears by reminding herself he is a holy man who would not commit such cunning actions. This foreshadows the lamentable death of Juliet, relating to the tone of tragedy. “What if it be a poison which the Friar subtly hath minist’red to have me dead… methinks it should not for he heath still be tried a holy man.” (Shakespeare iv.
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. This plan fails because, the Friar’s letter was not receive to Romeo because, a quarantine in Verona and would not let the messenger go out of town. This caused Romeo to be in a depressed state of mind because, he thought that she was dead. This situation is significant because, this misinforms Romeo that Juliet has died. This event caused a ripple effect because the plan made Romeo think Juliet was dead because he did not get the note which misinforms Romeo of Juliet’s fake death and this incident causes Romeo to commit suicide and Juliet to kill herself after the death of
She feared that she would of woken up too soon before Romeo could of gotten to her, and that she would of woken up and suffocated. She also feared seeing her dead family members, including Tybalt and that she would of went crazy from the memory of waking up in a dark tomb. All of these doubts that Juliet was having were possibilities that were likely to happen. Friar Lawrence takes a big risk and gives her the potion
A cup, closed in my true love’s hand?/ Poison, I see, hath been his timeless end./ O churl, drunk all, and left no friendly drop/ To help me after? I will kiss thy lips./ Haply some poison yet doth hang on them,/ To make me die with a restorative./ (kisses ROMEO)” (5.3.173-179) In Shakespeare 's play, the forcefulness of love can induce people into irrational decisions, causing consequences for the good or bad; love is a cause of violence but also of reconciliation. After the lovers’ deaths the two families realize the consequences of their rivalry. They both agree to stop their feud and the two families come together and unite at the end. “O brother Montague, give me thy hand./ This is my daughter’s jointure, for no more/ Can I demand.
As the Friar leaves Juliet looks at her beloved and realizes that he has drunk poison in which to kill himself and she looks to see if there is a drop left in which she could use. There is no poison left and she kisses him on the s lips in hopes that there will be some poison that had remained clinging to his lips. She is disappointed to find none left. She soons hears the Watchmen approaching and she spots Romeo’s dagger. She takes his dagger and says, “This is thy sheath; there rust and let me die,” (V.iii.170).
“If, rather than to marry County Paris,/Thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself,/Then is it likely thou wilt undertake/ A thing like death himself to ‘scape from it;/And, if thou darest, I’ll give thee remedy”(IV.i.71-76). He tells Juliet that if she takes the potion then it will get her out of marrying Paris. Before Juliet takes the potion, she thinks that that Friar Lawrence might be poisoning her “What if it be poison, which the Friar/ Subtly hath minister’d to have me dead” (IV.iii.24-25). Their plan could have worked if Friar Lawrence made sure that the letter got to Romeo in time. In the end, Friar Lawrence takes the blame for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths, “ I am the greatest, able to do least,/ Yet most suspected, as the time and place/ Doth make against me, of this direful murder;/And here I stand, both to impeach and purge/ Myself condemned and myself excused.” (V.iii.223-227).
