In order to give the two lovers the happy ending they desired, Friar Lawrence and Juliet devised a deceitful and complex plan, which was to make her appear dead for a certain period of time, and have Romeo retrieve her body once she woke up so that they could flee Verona together. However, the message for Romeo containing the details of the plan was not able to be delivered because of a misunderstanding, causing the message carrier to be quarantined though he did not have any sickness: “I couldn’t send it- here it is again- Nor get a messenger to bring it thee, so fearful were they of infection.” (5.2.14-16). Starting from that point, it was sure that the plan was to go awry, for the small disruption in the original scheme had a high chance in causing a ripple and chain reaction in the events that were supposed to occur in result of the delivered message, and it was even admitted by Friar Lawrence that “the neglecting it [the message] may do much danger.” (5.2.19-20). Romeo, receiving an insufficient amount of and therefore wrong details about Juliet’s so-called death, killed himself, finding no reason to continue living in his unhappy state, and he exhibited this mindset with the following quotation: “How oft when men are at the point of death? Have they been merry,
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. The deaths of the two unaware young lovers were caused by Lord Capulet. Lord Capulet had to protect his young daughter but instead of protecting her he was more involved with her getting married. He did not realize she was in love with Romeo or even seeing him. Lord Capulet could have prevented these deaths by listening to Juliet 's wishes and not force her to marry Paris.
In comparison, the inconsistency between diction depicts the power dynamics observed in the play. Shakespeare often uses Prospero’s servant, Ariel and slave, Caliban to portray the differences in the hierarchy of the play. As observed by the audience Prospero often uses threats and insults to communicate and assign task to Caliban, hence “...tonight thou shalt have cramps, side stitches that shall pen thy breath up.”(I.ii.325-326) Prospero threatens Caliban with pain after his refusal to do work, because he feels as if the isle belongs to him due to the fact that it was inhabited by his mother first. Caliban continues by stating that “I am all the subjects that you have, Which first was mine own king; and here you sty me In this hard rock, whiles you do keep me from The rest o’ th’ island”(I.ii.341-344) This exchange between
Unlike the mentors in Romeo and Juliet, good mentors “[teach] the mentee to develop their own strengths, beliefs, and personal attributes”(Loretto). Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, had a shocking turn of events that were led by the decisions of the mentors. In Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s parents are in an ancient grudge with each other, so Romeo and Juliet are star-crossed lovers. Some events of fate and the tragic flaws of the characters lead to the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet. While some may argue that Romeo and Juliet’s personalities are responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, it is actually the mentors’ fault because of the encouraged marriage, the complicated plan, and thoughtless consequences.
During Juliet’s conversation with Lady Capulet regarding the death of Tybalt, Capulet walks in to share news of Juliet's suitor, Paris. While Juliet appreciates the gesture of her father find a potential husband, she politely declines due to her relationship with Romeo. Capulet is outraged and disowns Juliet for apparent stubbornness, but Juliet attempts to justify her decision: “Proud can I never be of what I hate, but thankful even for hate that is meant love” (3.5.152-153). Juliet explains that she dreads the idea of Capulet arranging for Paris to marry her, secretly due to her complications with Romeo, but loves that same idea because she understands that her father’s intentions were only of care. Juliet is able to be empathetic to her father’s temporary anger since she knew it is only a result of his deep love and support.
People can also blame to put their transgressions on another person because they do not want the shame on them instead of taking responsibility for their actions. In the famous William Shakespeare work, Romeo and Juliet, blame is an important plot device used to bring the demise of the two prime characters and lovers in the story, Romeo and Juliet. While there were many factors that led to their passing, Lord Capulet and Tybalt were mostly to blame for the deaths of Juliet and Romeo because of how they were played out in the story. Throughout the story, Lord Capulet is the patriarchal head of the Capulet family, and is the father of the main character Juliet. He is often seen as lively and cheerful, as shown in the Capulet feast, but can also be brash and commanding.
Blame is when someone assigns the responsibility for a fault on someone else. People blame others because they do not want to take responsibility for the fault because it might hurt how people view them. Blame is a factor in Romeo and Juliet as there are various events that are the cause of the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet took their own lives due to Friar Lawrence’s poor decision making and Tybalt’s impulsivity. Friar Laurence is the main reason why Romeo and Juliet took their own life.
In the scene during when lord Capulet and Juliet are arguing over marrying Paris, Capulet says, “hang, beg, starve, dies” is referring to the fact that Lord Capulet wouldn’t care if Juliet was to starve or die and he would still ignore her. Cause she has disobeyed him. Saying that not doing what she is told is going to affect her further, and that her
Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
Because these families hated each other so much Friar Laurence had to create a plan so Romeo and Juliet could live together in peace and love. Friar Laurence devised this plan so the two star-crossed lovers could escape the insane pressure their families have put on them throughout their lives. A large reason why Juliet wants to get away from her parents is because they are forcing another man upon her to marry. Capulet and Lady Capulet are so forceful with this wedding partially because they want her to marry Paris so bad. Paris is someone who is on their side of this conflict which makes them force the marriage even more.
