Importance of Friar Laurence in Romeo and Juliet

- Friar Laurence plays an important part in the narrative development of Romeo and Juliet. He is naïve and detached from society so doesn’t fully appreciate the bitterness of the feud between the Montagues and Capulets. The well intentioned advice that he gives to Romeo and Juliet is thus misguided and this develops a sense of foreboding. The advice that Friar Laurence gives sets the young lovers on a path which the audience senses will end in tragedy. With regard to his character, Friar Laurence is a contemplative and moral man yet he lacks real insight in human nature i.e....   [tags: Shakespeare, Character Analysis]

In his first scene we see him with the poison, and this scene links up with his last two scenes and the consequences of that same poison.  His entrance breaks the pace of the previous balcony scene, and gives the audience time to absorb what has occurred between Romeo and Juliet....   [tags: Romeo and Juliet Essays]
