But he was not even capable of doing that! In act 5 scene 2 Friar John says “My speed to Mantua there stayed” (5.2, 12). This quote is stating is that Friar Lawrence entrusted the letter in someone who not capable of completing the task. This results in Romeo being ill informed and killing himself because he thinks Juliet is dead. As a repercussion of Romeo’s suicide, Juliet kills herself in vain of her lost lover.
Romeo decided that he was in love with Juliet upon sight without knowing who she was (Shakespeare 924). This was a terrible choice Romeo had literally no idea who she was and this could have stopped the whole conflict of the play. Romeo then ignored his dreams which he believed told his destiny (Shakespeare 921-1009). While if Romeo listened to these dreams which he believed told the future he would have been much more cautious because he would know that he was going to die prematurely. Also, by him listening to his dreams he would have made either little or no poor choices later in the play which results in his death.
Since Romeo didn’t think about his actions, he accidentally killed Tybalt. Now, his future is in debt because he killed Juliet’s cousin and made the relationship with the Capulets worse. Lastly, when Romeo first hears of Juliet’s death, he impetuously went and killed himself. If he had thought about his actions and stayed calm for a little longer, he would’ve received the letter Friar Lawrence, telling him about the situation. For not thinking about his decisions, Romeo’s life has now fallen
They are both and they are married to the enemies of their families. The only reason why he bought the poison was because of his friend telling him the Juliet is dead.If he never told Romeo then none of it would have happened.Romeo and Juliet were worried that something worse would happen between their families if they told them that they had gotten
So if the feud wasn’t there then Tybalt wouldn’t have died, Romeo wouldn’t have been banished, and Juliet would never had to go to the friar. Meaning they would have lived. Many might think it was Friar Lawrence's fault because he gave Juliet the potion and plan in the first place. But again, like before, Juliet would have never had to come to him if the feud wasn’t there. In conclusion, the fault of Romeo and Juliet’s death belongs to the feud between their families.
In ‘Romeo and Juliet’ the Capulets and Montage's end their feud after the tragedy itself. “O brother Montague, give me thy hand” (Shakespeare 5.3 Page 13). Capulet has realized the harm and effects of the death of the ‘star-crossed lovers’ after losing his precious treasure he felt guilt due to all the cruel words he had said to Juliet. The feud is an important aspect of the book because it was the reason for all the deaths and secrecy. “Doth with their death bury their parents' strife.” (Shakespeare Prologue page 1.)
The death of Romeo and Juliet, I believe was done by Romeo and Juliet themselves. I believe it was them for the following reasons, their rash actions, all of their secrets, and the family conflict. These things lead to the tragedy of their death, though the story is sometimes seen as a love story, today we will be talking about their death. Their rash actions were a huge part of what lead to their own deaths. Just one example was when Romeo is speaking about killing himself and lying beside Juliet “well, Juliet, I will lie with the tonight.”(Shakespeare.
He didn’t hurt anyone but himself at that point. Without thinking of anything he ends up killing Paris, Juliet’s arranged husband, but didn’t know because it was dark and he was angry. Romeo then drinks the poison and dies with one last kiss from Juliet. Once Juliet has awoken she finds her love dead next to her she grabs his dagger and kills herself. These actions always reflect on someone and they didn’t have the maturity or good mindset to think it through and realize they were in a phase as they thought they were in love and stupidity in doing something that didn’t have to happen if they had just talked to their
She was in a time of need she awoke to her dead husband, but the Friar was there he could have helped her through this time of need. Instead he heard a noise it spooked him and out of selfishness he left her. Juliet devastated killed herself there on the spot. “But then a noise did scare me from the tomb, and she, too desperate, would not go with me” (Shakespeare 477). The Friar left the two to their fatal fate.
Reason one to support that is the first of many bad choices he makes is threatening suicide because his first love interest rosaline isn 't interested in him so he decided that if he couldn 't be with rosaline he would be better off dead. Next is that he married Juliet at first sight, marriage is a life changing decision that should not be made within the first couple hours of knowing someone (he proposed somewhere around two hours after meeting Juliet). Lastly when he gets to the Capulets tomb to find a ‘dead’ juilet he kills himself even though she was actullay sleeping and any clearheaded person would have known that.Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, And death’s pale flag is not advancèd there.”(shakespeare act 5 scene 3 line 100). If he had been thinking romeo would have known that color in the cheeks means that a person is alive and not dead. But since he was so caught up in his thoughts and not reality he makes the irrational of killing himself and so does
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
