The Nurse and Friar Lawrence are responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The Friar was one of Romeo's most important role models. Romeo looked up to him and respected his opinions. No matter what the Friar could have said to Romeo and Juliet, they still would have gotten married, but the Friar could have helped them find a better way to go about it. The Friar thought that marrying the two kids of the feuding houses would help put an end to their parents' fight, "Thy love did read by rote, that could not spell.
The deaths of Romeo and Juliet can be blamed upon Friar Lawrence, the parents of Romeo and Juliet, and Tybalt. To begin, Romeo and Juliet’s deaths should be blamed upon Friar Lawrence. In the play, Romeo is asking Friar Lawrence to wed him to Juliet. Friar is telling Romeo to slow down and think about this decision, but still agrees to do it. Shakespeare writes, “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; for this alliance may so happy prove To turn your households’ to rancor to pure love” (Ⅱ.Ⅳ.90-92).
Michelle Lee, a published writer and Shakespeare critic, states that “The enigmatic influence of fate, fortune, and the heavens on the lives of human beings forms a compelling theme in Shakespearean dramas and comedies” (Lee, 2004, para. 1). Lee is essentially saying the theme of chance and pure luck is an essential theme in Shakespearean dramas and comedies. This is certainly evident in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She goes on to say “Critics suggest that Shakespeare's depiction of fortune in the comedies relies in large part on medieval and Renaissance perceptions of this obscure force.
The paradox of Romeo occurs when he sees juliet for the first time and immediately falls in love with her in sight. He uses paradox when he states that he has no way to explain or describe the way he felt when he first seen Juliet at sight. He constantly tells Benvolio how he feels about juliet and tell him how he wants to fall in love with her.In the story of Romeo and Juliet shows that a paradox could mean statement or possibly event that seems absurd. It is a meaning in real life experiences and it expresses possible health. In this story of shakespeare there are different kinds of examples in paradox and other sounds devices that could be found in many parts of the story of Romeo and Juliet.In conclusion the love story of Romeo and Juliet showed that there are many types of sound devices, Friar Lawrence was one of many to give many types of examples in the story and play of Romeo and Juliet.
In the novel Romeo and Juliet, there are characters that have structural roles to play. These characters have a deeper and more significant meaning to the story than how they are literally interpreted by the reader. One of these character is Mercutio, a blood relative of the Prince and a close friend of Romeo. Mercutio's role in Romeo and Juliet is to provide the masculine comic potential through the action of degrading love in a joking fashion as observed in the Queen Mab speech, the taunting of the Nurse, and the taunting of Romeo through Rosaline. One example of how Mercutio is the masculine comic potential is through the Queen Mab speech.
What I think makes Romeo and Juliet the play that it is is by the theme of miscommunication. Miscommunication also connects with the theme of secrets too. If there were no secrets in the book then there wouldn’t be a miscommunication at the end of the play. If more people knew about their love for each other and their marriage no one probably would get killed. Juliet wouldn’t had to take the position to fake she’s dead.
Even the dying Hamlet says to Horatio “But I do prophesy the election lights/ On Fortinbras, He has my dying voice” towards the end of the play (Shakespeare, V, ii, 353-354). Hamlet is correct in thinking that Fortinbras would become King and the argument that Hamlet thought this way was due to Fortinbras being noble is certainly understandable. Upon watching Fortinbras march to Poland to fight, over land Hamlet sees as worthless, Hamlet remarks upon what greatness is. But it is not the fact that Fortinbras lives that, according to Hamlet’s definition, makes him great, but being able to “greatly find quarrel in a straw/ When honor’s at the stake” (Shakespeare, IV, iv, 47-56). Fortinbras, according to Hamlet, and by proxy Shakespeare, was great because he was willing to die over the abstract idea of honor than the control of useful and fertile
Romeo and Juliet was one of the most memorable play and novel written by William Shakespeare. It follows the story of two star-crossed lovers named, Romeo And Juliet. Unable to be wed or even talk or see each other due to their parents rivalry, the Montagues and the Capulets. Throughout the play, Shakespeare makes allusions that the reader can make connections to the allusions which are love stories, mythical beings, etc. These allusions made by the writer can also help the reader understand the overall main focus of the story, not just make connections.
Mercutio: My invocation is fair and honest. In his mistress' name I conjure only but to raise up him. (2.1.27-29) Mercutio’s witty statement provides an exquisite example of dramatic irony because he and Benvolio reference Romeo’s mistress, with Rosaline in mind, and they are oblivious to the fact that Romeo now loves Juliet. Shakespeare incorporates dramatic irony at this specific point in the rising action as a discrete message to the audience that even those who remain super close to Romeo and Juliet are not aware of their secret romantic relationships. Two of Romeo’s best friends remain ou of the loop and are not informed when the love-srtricken Romeo find love and gets married.
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.
Predestination can initiate true love in individuals, which means that fate controls true love and it is inevitable. While some people think that fate has nothing to do with true love, there is evidence to prove that fate has a direct impact in initiating true love. Romeo and Juliet is evidence to the fact that fate can initiate true love because it says, “Some consequence yet hanging in the stars… By some vile forfeit of untimely death.” (Shakespeare 23) This is predestination because Romeo knew that there was a “consequence” in attending the party that ends in his “untimely death,” nevertheless he still goes to it. It just so happens to be that Juliet is attending the same party. Even though something bad will happen to Romeo, he still attends
