Romeo believed that Juliet was dead. He never thought she was alive and would wake up ever again. That was why he took the poison and killed himself. If Romeo would have waited just a little longer he would have seen that Juliet was not dead, but fate did not let that
They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival. But even before Juliet knew it was Romeo she said, “If he’s married, I think I’ll die rather than marry anyone else.”(1.5.134-135).
William Shakespeare created a beautiful tale with both love and loss; it is called Romeo and Juliet. Romeo meets Juliet they fall in love and then kill themselves in a double suicide? This did not have to happen ,but did. Some blame Romeo and Juliet themselves and even the nurse, while they might have contributed into the death of the two star crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet were young; they didn 't know any better, and the nurse did not want Juliet to feel as though she betrayed her.
He could have told Romeo’s parents that Romeo was in love or even married to Juliet. Instead, he waited for them to figure it out for themselves. He could have told Juliet’s parents that she was actually alive when they were burying her. “Your part in her you could not keep from death, But heaven keeps his part in eternal life.” (Shakespeare 4.5.75-76). He just flat out lied to her parents.
For example, the balcony scene where Romeo is confessing his love to Juliet. Juliet warned him to not come over to because he may be killed but he truly believed that true love would have kept him safe. Romeo foolish decisions explains why he does not think about his decisions because he seemed to have been clouded by his desires. Not being able to not think clearly must have caused the many poor decisions Romeo tends to do later in the play. Juliet also is quickly clouded by her desires in many cases.
Juliet doesn’t know that romeo is there but she is talking to herself and is wishing that they didn’t half to do deal with the feud anymore so that way her and Romeo could be together. However, the effects of the feud between the families results in romeo and juliets courageous decision to secretly get married. Due to the feud, Romeo and Juliet must get married secretly and they are allowed to do so because of friar lawrence.
It was very foolish to kiss each other even though they didn’t know each other. If they had not kissed at the party, they could have made smarter decisions if they would have decided to take it a little slower and not meet every night and risk getting in trouble. Juliet knew that Romeo could be killed if he were to get caught with Juliet in lines (2.2.62-65). Where she says, “And the place death, considering who thou art, If any of my kinsmen find thee here.” This shows how desperate they were to see each other because they were both
An examination of Romeo and Juliet reveals that a person’s fate is not decided at birth and can be changed based on their decisions. Romeo and Juliet proves people occasionally need to be told the truth to understand the problems and chaos they’re causing. The Capulets and Montagues had been archenemies for a long time and possibly don’t even remember why; all they know is that they hate the other family. Juliet has discovered who she has fallen in love with, “My only love sprung from my only hate! / Too early seen unknown , and known too late!
Again, the fact that Friar John was quarantined shows how just the tiniest error, like going to the wrong friend to join you on a journey, can ruin all plans. (Shakespeare 5.2) In this scene, Friar Laurence explains how it’s very dangerous that the letter was not sent, as Romeo then has no idea that Juliet isn’t really dead and that she is faking her death. This, of course, leads to Romeo’s death, and then shortly after, Juliet’s death. What was supposed to be a plan to escape and live happily ever after as a married couple, goes horribly wrong and ends in the deaths of the two people the plan was made for in the first place. Another somewhat minor mistake that changes the future is Romeo and Juliet’s mistake to pursue their love.
Romeo was in a hurry to see if his wife had really died, but in reality he just killed her, because it was fate. Some people might say that he didn’t have to kill himself he choose to do it, but in his world he did because he felt like he couldn’t live without her and if she was dead so was he. Some might also say that Romeo didn’t have to kill Tybalt, but they’re wrong because tybalt killed one of Romeo’s best friends and Romeo wasn’t just going to let that happen. In coming to conclusion it wasn’t free will that lead to the death of married couple, it was
With the question you ask, who do you blame the most for the trouble in Romeo and Juliet? I have the answer of, the families. The reason being is that if they never had the quarrels, Romeo and Juliet would of been able to get married and live happily ever after. The story starts off with informing us that there is history between the families, and it’s not a history to recall. “ Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny” (Shakespeare, 377).
Some people may think that Friar Laurence is ultimately to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths, but I have evidence proving that he should not be blamed for this tragedy. Friar Laurence gave Juliet the poison that put her in deep sleep only because she asked him for a solution. He did not want her to commit suicide, like she said she would, if he did not give her any other solutions. Friar clearly explained to Juliet what would happen to her and how she would appear to others if she took this poison, and she still wanted to take it. We should not blame Friar for giving Juliet what she asked for.
Friar Lawrence finds out about Romeo and Juliet’s love for each other, but does not tell the two families about this. In addition to this, he married Romeo and Juliet quickly without thinking. He then comes up with the plan to pretend that Juliet was dead, so she can get out of marrying Paris. Friar Lawrence also takes the blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet in the end. There were many people who had caused Romeo and Juliet’s death, but Friar Lawrence had caused most of the problems Friar Lawrence finds out about Romeo and Juliet’s love for each other, but does not tell the two families about this.
The person, who is responsible for the deaths, is none-the-less the Friar. Without the Friar, Romeo and Juliet would have never taken their own life, and the lives of many others would not have been lost. First of all, the Friar never should of married Romeo and Juliet without their parent’s consent. Even though the friar had good intentions, it was a bad idea. The Friar new it was a bad idea because he said, “But come, young waverer, come, go with me, In one respect I’ll thy assistant be…” This means that the friar will help Romeo with his secret wedding.
