Friar Lawrence is partly to blame for the death of the “ill-fated lovers”, as this plan is too dangerous to undergo, and he also does not fulfil his duty. He does not deliver the letter to Romeo, resulting in Romeo’s lack of awareness for the plan. This, in turn, contributes majorly to his death, as he does not know that Juliet is in a trance. Therefore, Friar Lawrence has a share of the blame, as his carelessness in the delivery of the letter is the reason Romeo dies. Subsequent to Friar Lawrence’s negligence which resulted in Romeo’s death, the Friar is left in the tomb with the waking Juliet.
Romeo toke the Nurses advice and chased Juliet. Like the Nurse, the Friar played an important role in the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Here the Friar tells Juliet She should not see Romeo because it may spark something between the to families the Montague’s and Capulet’s. “Each part, depriv’d of supple government shall, stiff and stark and cold, appear like death; Shakespeare 711” This simile offended Juliet and she did not take the Friars advise and continued to see Romeo. Similar to the Nurse the advice that the Friar gave was not always taken by Romeo and Juliet, this is an example of that right here.
This is because in the play, Juliet refused to marry Paris and so the Friar offers his help again and gives her a special potion that makes her appear dead. His intentions were to bring Romeo, who was banished, and Juliet back together again and this could be done if Juliet did not marry Paris. He wanted Juliet to go to Mantva where Romeo was. The Friar's good intentions are destroyed again when Friar John fails to deliver the message clearly of Juliet's plans of using the special potion and go to Mantva to Romeo. Romeo misunderstands this and believes Juliet is dead.
Shakespeare employs Friar Lawrence as one of these characters that abets the death of Romeo and Juliet as he fails to deny the two “star crossed lovers” any part in marriage instead aiding their eventual demise through the careful yet greatly flawed plan where Friar Lawrence “gave thee remedy” that formed the basis of the two characters deaths. Not only was Lawrence to blame but it can also be said that parents of Juliet, Lord and Lady Capulet were also at fault forcing their young daughter into early marriage to a man in Paris who Juliet had no feelings for. Her father, Lord Capulet stated “…you will not wed, I’ll pardon you, graze where you will, you shall not house with me.” Here it is evident if Juliet were not to marry Paris her father will “excuse” her to find another home. Such tactics used by Shakespeare prove that Juliet had been terribly misguided from an early age and show that her demise was set up due to poor parenting
Friar Laurence is responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet because he acts before he thinks and is a selfish person. Friar Laurence is an impetuous individual. The Friar leaves Juliet in the tomb when she sees Romeo lying on the ground dead. He tries to get her out by saying “A greater power than we can contradict/Hath thwarted our intents. /Come, come away.
Who is to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet? Firstly, I would blame Lord Capulet as he causes his own daughter's death by forcing Juliet to marry Paris only a few days after her cousin, Tybalt's, death. Juliet protests this marriage because she alone knows that she and Romeo have been secretly married. However, Lord Capulet refuses to listen to anything she has to say and threatens to throw her out of the house and out onto the streets. "And you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets."
At the end of the play Lord Montague says that Lady Mongague “is dead to-night; Grief of my son’s exile hath stopp’d her breath…”(V.III.210-211). Because Romeo got banished from Verona, Lady Montague dies because of sadness. Because of Romeo’s fall it causes the downfall of Juliet, Tybalt, Mercutio, and Paris also. Romeo goes to Juliet’s tomb uses the potion and dies. This leads to the death of Juliet.
Fate made Capulet’s servant illiterate and he had to ask Romeo to read the invitations. Also, fate played a role in quarantining Friar John’s house so he could not deliver Friar Lawrence’s letter. Without receiving the Friar’s letter and hearing about Juliet’s “death”, Romeo goes and kills himself with the poor apothecary’s poison. Then, only a second or two passes until Juliet wakes up and kills herself. In The Chosen, fate
Romeo never liked to fight before but now it has all changed. He then becomes exiled for killing Tybult and because of that the "tragedy " starts. Juliet finds out that her Romeo is exiled and that her cousin is dead. Paris asks to marry her again and her father says yes this time because his name is looked down upon because it looks bad that his own member killed a Montigue for no reason. He thinks that it will distract the people from the
He enjoys Mercutio’s company. “This day's black fate on moe days doth depend, This but begins the woe others must end.” Romeo says this when he decides he loves Mercutio more than Juliet. He does this by ignoring he is related to Tybalt. Romeo loves Mercutio to a point where he feels he must avenge his death, resulting in his exile. He puts his feelings for Mercutio over his love for Juliet and risks exile.
