William Shakespeare once said, “Death is a fearful thing”. This does not relate to the play Romeo and Juliet because they are willing to take risks that jeopardize their life. Juliet and Romeo are fine with taking their lives for each other because they are willing to do anything for each other. In the play, Romeo and Juliet are in love, but they have problems with their families having a feud with one another. They try to overcome their families hating each other, however, they cannot overcome it and eventually they die because of the feud.
(5.1.62-63). Romeo expresses his urgency to die quickly to be with Juliet. Romeo impatiently arrives to Juliet’s “grave” with a bottle of poison in his hand so that he can die with her. His loved too immensely and too recklessly which made him forget to find the reason of her death. He jumps to conclusions too quickly and makes foolish actions.
Romeo arrives at the tomb and kills himself, only for Juliet to wake up minutes later. Friar Laurence and Balthasar rush in to whisk the lovers to a safer location. Juliet refuses to leave with them, and Friar Laurence and Balthasar are forced to leave after they hear shouting nearby. Distraught, Juliet kills herself with Romeo’s dagger. Romeo says, “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight” (5.1.37).
Romeo and Juliet did not make a decision to love each other, it just happened. There was nothing they could do to change the fact that they fell in love so quickly. In the play there are several reasons why Romeo and Juliet end up dead. After Romeo sees Juliet is “dead” he decides he cannot live another minute without her. He makes an impulsive decision to drink poison, which ends up killing him.
¨For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo¨. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is a story of two lovers who take their life all because of a misunderstanding. However, who is to blame for their tragic demise? The parents who made the two lovers feel like outcasts must be to blame. The Capulets forced Juliet to marry Paris, the constant fighting made them want to keep the marriage secret, and made Romeo and Juliet to scared to say anything.
Some may think that it is Friar´s fault, for making the plan to get Romeo and Juliet married. And it can also be said that it is Benvolio 's who helped Romeo meet Juliet by taking him to the party. However, this is not true because it is Romeo who follows through these plans or advises to make these plans due to his unwise decisions. Afterall, he asked Friar to marry them ¨I’ll tell thee as we pass, but this I pray: That thou consent to marry us today¨ (Shakespeare 2.3.63-64).
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.
For instance, he united the two in matrimony knowing that their family wouldn’t approbate it. Friar Lawrence also is the one who comes up with the idea of the potion making everyone believe Juliet is dead which makes Romeo believe the same. When Romeo sees Juliet asleep he drinks poison which causes his death and once Juliet wakes up and sees him like that she stabs herself. Lastly, He knew about the plan all along and ran away like a coward when the prince was coming inside the temple instead of forbidding her from staying inside the temple in which her death could’ve never happened.
He was supposed to run away with Juliet when she would waken from her long sleep. Friar John said, “ I could not send it here it is again not get a messenger to bring it thee, so fearful were they of infection.” Friar was very disappointed in and thinking what he would do to get the news to Romeo. FRiar lawrence was not able to give romeo the news before he found out from someone else. Romeo found out that juliet was dead but he thought she was truly dead, so he got a vial of poison and drank it.
In the morning, the nurse discovers her and pronounces her dead. Of all the things the Friar has done so far, giving Juliet the poison is the worst of his actions. As the Friar’s plan goes, Romeo did not receive the letter from the servant describing the situation of how Juliet is not dead, only sleeping. Romeo then kills himself when he sees his ‘dead’ wife, and when Juliet rises only to see her dead husband, she ends her life with a
BREAKING NEWS: Security camera footage of the deaths of Romeo and Juliet have been recovered. The deaths have been ruled out a suicide and a tragedy.

The Killer Friar A Friar is a man of God. A man of whom is supposed to help God’s loving children and followers and a man whom is supposed to know what is best when it comes to being asked for advice. Friar Laurence in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is anything but what a Friar is supposed to be and ends up causing the deaths of four of six characters within the play. Friar Laurence did not physically go up and murder these characters but indirectly caused these deaths through leaving a suicidal alone and relying solely on the Church and himself rather than outside forces.
