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.

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.
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.

Romeo fell in love very easily (Rosaline.)

In contrast, a difference is when Juliet doesn’t threaten to kill herself with her knife in Friar‘s cell. Juliet says in Act IV, scene i, “And with this knife I’ll help it presently. (shows him a knife)” (Shakespeare IV, i 212). This part is important to notice because Juliet threatening to commit suicide shows how devoted she is to Romeo. Shakespeare intended the readers of the play to see this passage and realize that Juliet is truly in love with Romeo.
The man she risked her life marrying will no longer be with her as this is their last night before Romeo leaves for Mantua and any chance of being able to reveal her beloved husband’s identity is shattered after Tybalt’s killing as the Capulet family is now more determined then ever on avenging Tybalt’s death. Lady Capulet’s conversation with Juliet before she gives her the “joyful tidings” is very important as it gives us a further reason to feel sympathetic towards Juliet and it also gives us an insight into Lady Capulet’s character. Lady Capulet seems to be a wise woman, powerful, yet a person that prefers a quiet life and
Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s tragic duo of love; in every tragedy, those that are having the time of their lives meet their eminent downfall in the very end. As the Prince states in the play, those responsible will be punished for the deaths of the love birds, Romeo and Juliet. But who was the one responsible for the faith of Romeo and Juliet?
