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). Shakespeare uses the words body’s death as a way to foreshadow what will happen if they end up loving each other and prioritize their love over their well being. The words body’s banishment shows how the souls of Romeo and Juliet are exiled from their bodies because they can not be together. Thus, Shakespeare uses foreshadowing to show the death of Romeo and Juliet, even though the audience knows and proves that they choose love over life Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy that has started to become present in teens lives. The play shows that you should not put love over your well being as there will be fatal
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).
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
Nonetheless one person is at most to blame and his name is Friar Lawrence. Marrying Romeo and Juliet so quickly without thinking is one reason Friar Lawrence is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo beseeches Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet
Angel Salazar Mr. Young English I Have you made a bad decision, then wondered what the opposite decision would be? In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, bad decisions are everywhere. These include the main characters getting married after knowing each other for less than a day, killing themselves, and letting lust run their lives. Nevertheless, even after all these bad decisions some still believe it was fate that led to this tragedy, because Romeo and Juliet would have never met if not for fate. One perspective is that we can't control fate, and the reason for everything is fate.
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.
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.

Then in the end, Mercutio and Tybalt would still be alive. Some may say that it was Romeo's fault for showing up at the party and he was the cause of his own death but if lord Capulet simply told Tybalt to not fight at all, then they would be alive. Lord Capulet pressured Juliet into marrying Paris which created a domino effect with bad things. Lord Capulet is the most to blame for most of the deaths when he pressured Juliet into marriage, continued on the feud, and doing nothing to stop Tybalt from killing Romeo. Do you think that Lord Capulet is the most to
But the question is, “Who is to blame for their deaths?” Many people believe the answer is Friar Laurence, the nurse, or Romeo and Juliet themselves. Really the feud was to blame for the tragic ending. First off, if the feud wasn’t there, the couple could have fallen in love peacefully, and Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t have had to hide their marriage. “O Romeo. Romeo!
It was friar Lawrence 's duty as priest to have informed both families about the marriage of their children rather than performing the wedding in Secret.
