To even more complicate the plot, Mr. Capulet promised Paris that will Juliet “shall be married to” him (R&J 3.4.21). This arrangement happens because Juliet was sad about Tybalt’s death and Romeo’s banishment. The marriage forces the Juliet to fake her death, which is the reason for Romeo’s suicide. Romeo committed suicide because he did not her death was fake. This is a bad decision because Juliet and Friar Lawrence should have found a way to tell Romeo before she fakes her death.
This vividly shows how fast Romeo can fall in love, which shows immaturity. This also shows that he’s very shallow because for him love is based on physical beauty as he only saw Juliet for the first time. Another example of Romeo’s immaturity includes when the prince was merciful and banished Romeo from Verona for killing Tybalt and Romeo whished the prince had sentenced death for him. Also it shows that Romeo did not ... ... middle of paper ... ...” (Shakespeare 5.3.174-175). The reader will see that Juliet shows innocence as she was in a tough position and wanted to die with her Romeo whom she loved.
71-72). In addition, Friar Lawrence marries Romeo and Juliet without even thinking of the consequences that the marriage will bring; he just does it in hopes that “this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3. 98-99). Friar Lawrence may have good intentions in mind, but his actions played a heavy role in the whole tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Devising a risky and poorly thought out plan exemplifies one of the many mistakes made by Friar Lawrence, which led to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
In William Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet had many issues leading towards Romeo and Juliet to commit suicide towards the end of the play. When blaming someone it means responsibility for something that is wrong or deserving censure. Accordingly, Friar Lawrence is openly accountable for Romeo and Juliet’s death. With this intention, he does not make one, but three faults that direct to their death. In particular, he marries Romeo and Juliet, he depended upon Friar John with a letter of essential information to be delivered to Romeo, and he took off when Juliet was in jeopardy at the tomb.
In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households rancor to pure love” (2.3.95). This quotation shows that the two households the two household’s hatred don’t allow Romeo and Juliet to like each other, so Friar Lawrence has to keep the secret but he also thinks it is a good idea but in the end Friar Lawrence plan for their escape causes Juliet’s death. Hate is the most responsible for the events that take place during the play. The fact that the Montagues and the Capulets had hatred caused many peoples death and ended up bad. If the two families did not have the hatred, this did not happen and everyone would have lived happily and peacefully.
The struggles they are going through to see each other are enough to take ones life. The flaws of Romeo and Juliet resulted in a setup for not only their own death, but the death of others. One of the deaths caused by the relationship between Romeo and Juliet is the death of Mercutio. Mercutio is kinsman to the prince and good friends with Romeo. As Romeo enters onto the stage, Tybalt starts to speak about love to Romeo.
The Capulets, however, must take more of the b... ... middle of paper ... ...r Friar Lawrence’s message to Romeo in time. Even Romeo and Friar Lawrence both blame Fate when Romeo says, “I defy you, stars!” and Friar Lawrence says, “Unhappy fortune!” (Shakespeare). Romeo and Juliet were doomed from the start and the audience is constantly reminded of this idea throughout the play. Therefore, Fate is primarily to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Though the Capulets, Montagues and Friar Lawrence are all partly to be held responsible for the deaths of Juliet and her Romeo, they didn’t have the ability to stop the tragedy from happening.
Be merciful, say “death.” For Exile hath more terror in his look, much more than death.” (3.3.13-15) This quotation further shows how Romeo is irrational about his sentence because he thinks that it is far worse to not see his love Juliet anymore. Realistically speaking, he can still speak to Juliet outside of Verona walls whereas if he died, he would never see Juliet ever again anywhere. This is another exceptional example how love does not run smooth for the two lovers as they have just gotten married and not but a few hours later does Romeo get banished from Verona permanently. The communication failure between Romeo and Juliet were twisted by the letter that met a recipe for disaster.
Because of their inability to tell the truth, Romeo and Juliet must skulk around and keep their love hidde. As a result of their immaturity, too many people did not know what was going on. Friar Lawrence adds to the problem because of his choices. So, as one takes a hard look at “Romeo and Juliet”, Friar Lawrence is clearly at fault for all of the deaths because of the following: 1) He marries Romeo and Juliet in the first place; 2) He causes Tybalt to die; 3) He fails to inform Romeo properly of Juliet’s fake death, thus killing both. Because of Friar Lawrence’s decision to marry Romeo and Juliet when the two families have had a long conflict with each other, he causes the deaths in “Romeo and Juliet”, as he believes that their lustful love shall bring the families to peace once they are married.
When Juliet notices that Romeo drank poison and had killed himself, she was not only upset about his death but also seemed more upset that he “left no friendly drop to help me after! I will kiss thy lips. Haply some poison yet doth hang on them” (Shakespeare V.iii.168-170). This bond that seems to be unbreakable between them causes more harm than it would have if they were not together like society would want them to be. During this time period in the 16th century, the parents usually arranged marriages, so this goes completely against societal
