What Romeo does not know is that Juliet is actually very much alive, and makes up not 5 minutes after Romeo kills himself. Consistent with his character, Romeo acts impulsively, and kills himself as he was blinded by love. If he had not acted impulsively here, He and Juliet would be together, both alive and well. This is yet another consequence experienced by Romeo for acting impulsively. In conclusion, Acting impulsively for one’s desires leads to many bad events because it does not allow a situation to play out to its fullest extent.
That lead to a big misunderstanding. First, Friar Laurence gives Juliet a potion which will make her look dead, but it actually makes people sleep for 48 hours. Juliet drank it the night before the wedding with Paris so
/ If, in thy wisdom thou canst give no help, / Do but call my resolution wise, / And with this knife I 'll help it presently" (4.1.51-54). To appease Juliet, Friar Laurence gave her a potion to consume that would enable her to feign death, thereby averting marriage to Paris.
Without his imprudent deed, Juliet wouldn’t have to create an outlandish plan
Even though Romeo and Juliet committed suicide, fate and the long-standing family feuding ultimately cause their untimely deaths. So now we know what the cause the death of Romeo and
Romeo found no alternative reason to live if he could not be with her, and planned to kill himself. This was one of the most important pieces of information that determined the future of the young lovers, but was not interpreted in a conscientious
She is able to deceive the Nurse from suspecting that she fell in love with Romeo. Furthermore, Juliet struggles with another problem when her parents decide that she was to marry the Count Paris when she was already married to Romeo. When Juliet refuses to marry Paris, she states, “I will not even marry yet, and when I do I swear it shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, rather than Paris.” (III.v.126). She is not obedient to her parents like she used to.
Romeo and Juliet died at the end of Act 5 of the play. The death of the two lovers had several reasons and people that lead up to this moment. The people that were the most responsible for the the deaths are three members of Capulet family. With the father, mother, and nurse to Juliet all having an influence by being unsupportive, uncaring, and uptight, they are to blame for Romeo and Juliet's deaths.
Now that Juliet is (unwillingly) being wed to Paris, the Friar sees a solution in a vial of poison that will make Juliet seem as though she’s dead. His warning speech goes: “Take thou this vial, being then in bed / And this distilled liquor drink thou off / When presently through all thy veins shall run / A cold and drowsy humor, for no pulse / Shall keep his native progress, but surcease” (Act 4, Scene 1). Essentially, the Friar is warning Juliet of what how the poison will affect her. He instructs her to lay in bed as if asleep, and drink the liquid.
Romeo and Juliet The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet’s love story. The author of Romeo and Juliet is William Shakespeare, he wrote a play about two teens that had fallen in love. These teens’ family’s had a feud so they had to hide there love for each other. Even though Romeo and Juliet committed suicide, their untimely deaths are ultimately caused by the fate and family feud.
After trying to deny being married off she finally agreed to marry Paris, but she will have to take the potion sooner, but she has no way to communicate this to Romeo. Romeo, unknowing of the circumstances, decided that before he left he needed a backup plan. He decided to get a vile of poison to kill himself if he is unable to get Juliet back. Since the sale of poison is illegal and punishable by death, he finds a poor apothecary that will do anything for money and has him make a batch of his strongest poison for Romeo. The apothecary tells Romeo that he is only doing this because he is poor, not because it is the right thing to do in “My poverty but not my will consents” (5.1. 75).
Question 6: Of all the minor characters in the play, who was the most responsible for contributing to the death of romeo and juliet? was it the nurse? friar laurence, capulet, tybalt, mercutio or the apothecary? In the play Romeo and Juliet the two main character ended up killing themselves, the reason why they both killed themself was because a series of unfortunate events, The problems started when was when Romeo was banished for killing Tybalt but the reason why he killed him was because Mercutio and Tybalt got into a fight but Romeo tried to break it up but then Tybalt killed Mercutio and Romeo got enraged and killed Tybalt for revenge.
There are many reasons why Romeo and Juliet killed themselves, Two factors caused Romeo Juliet’s death were Friar Lawrence and the family feud that was going on between the Capulets and the Montagues. Both had impacted Juliet and Romeo into thinking that killing themselves was the only way to get out of their problems and the secrets that had been made. Friar Lawrence made many mistakes in trying to keep Romeo and Juliet's marriage a secret and by getting Juliet out of her soon to be marriage to Paris. He created a chain of secrets starting with him agreeing to marry Romeo and Juliet.
The nurse pushes Juliet to marry Count Paris which makes her drink the potion. “Beshrew my heart in this second match, For it excels you first”(Romeo and Juliet 3.5.223-224). This is her telling Juliet to marry count Paris because Romeo is never coming back. In addition to her telling Juliet to marry Count Paris she let her marry Romeo. The nurse takes Juliet to the Friar and gets her married to Romeo.
