(5.2.16). This tells us that the failure of the letter not reaching Romeo is a mistake as people are anxious about the infection, which they may catch. In the play Friar John has a very small role, but nevertheless must take a part of the blame. The Prince has to be fair and look at both sides of the arguments, which take place between the two families this is his job. When the fight between Mercutio, Tybalt and Romeo breaks out he tells both sides of the families, Immediately we do exile him hence (3.1.187) With Romeo banished for killing Tybalt, this splits the two lovers up.
Finally, he has a quarantined friar try to deliver a letter to Romeo about a secret plan that had been created by Juliet and him. Even though Friar Lawrence has good intentions and was just trying to help Romeo and Juliet, he ends up creating a huge problem that kills the young couple and devastates their families with sadness. The consequences far outweigh the good intentions. But, sometimes the people who are thought to be knowledgeable and trustworthy may turn out to be irresponsible and poor decision makers.
First, there was a brutal feud between these two families! He knew one was of Montague and the other of Capulet, but he did not process the possible results. Second, he knew Romeo had just met Juliet, in fact he even told Romeo, “So soon forsaken? Young men's love then lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes”. If the Friar had been responsible to delay the marriage so that they could furthe... ... middle of paper ... ...As he observed the mess that had just occurred, he quickly left the tomb to avoid being caught by the watch for his mistakes.
Fate in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet There are many factors that contributed to the deaths of the protagonists and it is definitely a mixture of these, which is responsible. However in my opinion it is fate which played the biggest part in the deaths of the “star-crossed lovers.” Romeo himself, plays a major part in the tragic outcome. Throughout the play he makes hasty and impulsive decisions without really thinking them through. After being so “in love” with Rosaline he very quickly decides to marry Juliet. This shows that Romeo is insincere and disloyal.
We expected the Prince to set him an awful punishment, but the Prince excused him, as he was a holy man. The Friar’s real punishment was to live with the consequences of his o... ... middle of paper ... ...get Romeo and Juliet together and he had it all planned but things did not go his way. Romeo did not receive the letter, this was not Friar Lawrence’s fault because he tried to get it to reach to him but in the end it was because of fate that the letter did not reach Romeo in time, so do you say that Friar Lawrence is he to be blamed for this incident? In my view I do not blame the Friar for this at an extent, I would rather it to be blamed to fate, as I feel that fate played the biggest part in the tragedy. Friar Lawrence you will continue with your duty as normal, I just advise you to think about your actions in the future.
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.
There is a lot of blame to go around in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare but in the end, Friar Laurence is responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death. He agrees to marry them, which Romeo took as an act of approval for his and Juliet’s relationship. He also mapped out risky plans that he could have taken more caution when executing. Lastly, he was too wrapped up in the fact that their relationship could bring the Montagues and the Capulets together after too many years of conflict to see that the relationship would bring many dangers and that he should have at least attempted to slow it down. Friar Laurence was a role model to Romeo whether he knew it or not.
Friar Lawrence is responsible for the deaths of the lovers because he was secretive with their relationship, he was unable communicate effectively, and he had a cowardly persona. Friar Lawrence thought it was a good idea to keep Romeo and Juliet’s relationship a secret. He was unaware that this would be a cause of their deaths. Friar Lawrence said to Romeo when he gave consent to marry Romeo and Juliet, “come, young waverer, come, go with me, in one respect I’ll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to your households’ rancor to pure love” (II. iii.
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.
‘I’ll sent a friar with speed to Mantua, with my letter to thy lord. It shows that it was Friar Lawrence’s responsibility to get the plan to Romeo and he acted as an irresponsible by just sending only one letter and not thinking that this letter will reach to Mantua or not. In conclusion I think the most responsible is Friar Lawrence because he made a risky plan which led to the deaths of the two lovers. The second character that I think is the most to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet is Romeo himself, because he was too quick to fall in love, he was in love first with Rosaline then Juliet. He was making decision without thinking and too quick to act.
