My wife! Death, that hath sucked the honey of thy breath, Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty” (Shakespeare 223). This is an example of Romeo believing that Juliet is dead. But before Romeo came to the Capulet’s tomb he had a plan that if she was dead that he would kill himself, so Romeo went to a poor apothecary and bought poison. Which leads to the resolution of the
At one point in the play, the Friar decides to turn a simple plan into something complicated that results in both Romeo and Juliet dying. When Juliet demands Friar give her a solution for her problem, he responds: “A thing like death to chide away this shame, / That cop’st with death himself to scape from it” (4.1.74-75). The friar could have taken the situation of Juliet wanting to die by telling her that death is not the solution and to talk with her parents and tell the truth. Instead, the Friar decided to take this simple situation and made it complicated by telling Juliet she needs to fake her own death. Then, when Romeo and the Nurse are concerned about Romeo and Juliet’s Marriage, the Friar thinks he can fix the situation by saying: “To blaze your marriage, reconcile your friends, / Beg pardon of the Prince, and call thee back” (3.3.151-152).
An example of this is when Romeo and Juliet go to Friar Lawrence's cell to get married. He explains to Romeo that “These violent delights have violent ends / And in their triumph die, like fire and powder” (2.6.9-10). This quote relates to the thesis statement because it foreshadows the ending of how Romeo and Juliet have an end that is dramatic and lead to there death and the death of those close to them. Also when the author uses the words their triumph die it means that the pride of the Montagues and the Capulets will die as a result of Romeo and Juliet dying. Another instance is after Romeo kills Tybalt, Friar Lawrence explains the positive to his banishment and points out “A gentler judgement vanished from his lips: / Not body’s death, but body’s banishment” (3.3.11-12).
In Act 5 Romeo hears the news about Juliet’s death from his servant. Romeo goes to her tomb and sees Paris there. Romeo and Paris get into a fight and Romeo kills Paris. Romeo sees Juliet there “dead.” Romeo then takes his own life with poison. Juliet wakes up and sees her husband is dead, so she takes a dagger and takes her own life as well.
Romeo made arrangements to marry Juliet the next day he then tells Friar Laurence , “That one short minute gives me in her sight. Do thou but close our hands with holy words, Then love-devouring death do what he dare-”, the friar had warned them on what would happen and the consequences to it but they didn’t seem to care as much because they were in deep “love” with one another. Juliet had drank a poison to put her in a death like sleep. Romeo was told that she was dead and he wanted to die next to her, he buys a poison to kill himself. He didn’t hurt anyone but himself at that point.
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.
Juliet finally leaves the chapel and goes home to initiate the plan. Unfortunately, the plan falls apart as Romeo is never notified of Juliet’s death being a hoax, causing him to commit suicide after having killed Paris in a duel over Juliet. Juliet then wakes up to the sight of her dead husband. Her feelings of grief and despair are too much to bear, which prompt her to also commit suicide. If she had listened to the sage advice of the Nurse and married the County, Juliet, Paris and possibly Romeo would still be alive.
Then Friar sends John to give this plan to Romeo to come back to Verona and escapes with Juliet. But because of misunderstanding and John cannot make it to Mantua, Romeo realizes that Juliet is actually died instead. So he comes back with the poison to Verona to die beside his love, Juliet. Thus, Romeo breaks the law due to he is banishing from Verona and must stay in
Admittedly Friar Lawrence did agree to marry Romeo and Juliet in secret in Act II, but he did this in hopes that it would end the feud, and his intentions can be seen in this quote, “ In one respect all thy assistant be; For this alliance may so happy prove, to turn your households’ rancor to pure love”(Act II scene iii). The feud is a major reason for Friar Lawrence allowing Romeo and Juliet to be married. Friar Lawrence's actions disprove the claim that he is responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths since his actions were ultimately caused by the feud. Therefore, Friar Lawrence did not cause the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, and the claim that he is responsible is invalid. In spite of this, the feud is still the cause of Romeo and Juliet’s
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
Romeo has heard that Juliet is dead, but as he was never informed of what Juliet and the Friar had planned he does not know that she is not truly dead. As Juliet awakens from her death-state she is greeted by the Friar and she ask where her beloved is. As the Friar shows her that Romeo is dead as well as Paris, he informs her that the watchmen are on there way here and that they should leave now or be caught. Juliet denies him and says she will stay there and join her Romeo in death. As the Friar leaves Juliet looks at her beloved and realizes that he has drunk poison in which to kill himself and she looks to see if there is a drop left in which she could use.
Romeo 's personality of peace, loving, yet vengeful caused his own doom once he was exiled for killing Tybalt who killed Mercutio. Thus 'evidently causing pain for Juliet who lost both her lover and cousin. Juliet 's father arranging Juliet 's marriage to Paris made her mourning worse, already being married to Romeo yet being separated made her to reason with Friar Laurence. The plan that was supposed to reunite both Lovers indefinetly brought upon their own doom. 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.
