Juliet to get her mother not knowing about Romeo talks against him. Lady Capulet talks of a man will be sent to poison his drink. Juliet agrees that is a good plan. At this time Lady Capulet tells her about the marriage and what day it shall be upon. Juliet's parents call her crazy for talking this way.
Friar Lawrence, in this play, helps Romeo to fulfill his desires of marrying Juliet and always has good intentions for Romeo. In the second act, Romeo was in a hurry to marry Juliet, and he pleads with the Friar to conduct their marriage as Romeo was in "haste". Friar Lawrence agrees to this plea, in the hope that the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues would end and that the marriage will bring the families to make peace with each other. However, his intentions are destroyed when Romeo and Juliet commit suicide for each other and die because of their sworn love for each other. 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.
It is also shown during the balcony scene when she agrees to marry Romeo after knowing him only a day and she is not even sure herself that Romeo wants to marry her. After his marriage she is told by her nurse she is to marry Paris. Thinking that her only option was to die or hear a plan presented by Friar Lawrence to get her out of a second marriage. Romeo fell in love very easily (Rosaline.) When he first met Juliet, he seemed to have forgotten about Rosaline Thinking Juliet was dead, Romeo thought that his only option was to take his life out of grief for Juliet.
After Romeo is banished from Verona, Friar Laurence helps Juliet come up with a plan for her not to marry Paris. This plan consists of Juliet faking her death, so her sweet, love Romeo can find her in the Capulet’s tomb. However, if Friar Laurence didn’t mention the plan to Juliet, she would have save anyone from any heartbreak or death. Also Friar Laurence says, “Saint Francis be my speed! how oft to-night/ Have my feet stumbled at graves.” (5.3.121-122) This shows that Friar Laurence was being slowed down by graves in a tomb.
87-93). The dramatic irony in the scene is that Lady Capulet is mourning over Tybalt but Juliet is mourning over Romeo. Juliet and the audience know this but Lady Capulet does not. Juliet starts to mess around with her mother by changing her words around to make it sound like she also wants Romeo dead, but actually wants to see him. Lady Capulet does, not notice what Juliet is doing, but the audiences does, thus creating dramatic irony in this scene.
This is ironic as the scene is not joyful. It will not be a joyful time for Juliet but the complete opposite. Every time the scene uses the word, ‘joyful’ or ‘joy’ irony is present because the situation is everything but joyful. When Lady Capulet swears to ‘have vengeance’ for Tybalt’s death and send a man to Mantua to poison Romeo, Juliet replies, “Indeed I never shall be satisfied, With Romeo, till I behold him- dead- Is my poor heart, So for a kinsman vexed.” This quote has a double meaning as it signifies two completely different things. Lady Capulet misinterprets Juliet’s reply.
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."
Ultimately, these characteristics cost him his life. Firstly, Romeo has demonstrated that he’s very impulsive throughout the entire play. From the moment he spoke to the moment he killed himself. For example, right after the party Romeo, most likely without thinking, went to go see Juliet. If he never went to go see her then they wouldn’t have gotten married, and they would both be alive.
She looks to the Friar for help and then finds out that her father, lord Capulet, wants her to marry Paris. The friar accepts to help her and tells her “If, rather than to marry County Paris, Thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself, Then is it likely thou wilt undertake A thing like death to chide away this shame,” by completing this promise Friar Lawrence starts a chain of deaths that he would have never imagined. The next example is when Balthazar travels to Mantua and tells Romeo “Then she is well, and nothing can be ill: Her body sleeps in Capulet's monument.” By this Romeo becomes sad and decides to go out and buy poison from a local merchant so that he may go to the Capulet’s tomb and kill himself. This is one of the major parts in the story because if Balthazar had told Romeo the truth then he (Romeo) would have never decided to buy the poison off the poor merchant. Romeo and Juliet is a story that teaches hasty decision making is hurtful t both oneself and others.
Firstly, Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet knowing that their families hated each other and that it could end very poorly (Shakespeare 944-45). Friar knew this was a bad idea, but he continued with it and married the two. However, if he did not do this he would never be in trouble and Romeo and Juliet would then have to get married the ordinary way, thus, letting both families know. Next Friar decides to give Juliet a vial which will put her in a death-like state and sends a letter to Romeo about the plan, but it does not get to him (Shakespeare 993-1012). If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead.
