/ O, much I fear some ill unthrilly thing” (5.3.129-140). As the watch approaches, the Friar grows selfish and flees from the scene leaving Juliet who now realizes that Romeo killed himself. She then kills herself which could have so easily been prevented by the Friar. Time and time again his irresponsible behavior gets the best of
Fire imagery embodies Romeo’s rash anger after the death of his friend Mercutio, “And fiery-eyed fury by my conduct now! Now Tybalt, take the ‘villain’ back again ” (3.1.124-125). Romeo’s fury and thirst for revenge clouds his reason, he breaks the peace set by the Prince by killing Tybalt. The consequence for his blind rage will be banishment, and to Romeo this fate is worse than death. Later in the play, Friar Lawrence says to Romeo, “Like powder in a skilless soldier's flask, Is set afire by thine own ignorance, And thou dismembered with thine own defence” (3.3.132).
This happiness is sharply contrasted to the sadness and anger that takes over, when Balthasar tells Romeo of Juliet’s death. The true tragedy is that the reader knows Friar Lawrence sent a message to Romeo telling him of Juliet’s fake death and that Romeo had not yet received the news. Balthasar’s news results in Romeo immediately buying poison and rushing to Verona with the intent of dying beside Juliet. “A dram of poison; such soon-speeding gear/As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead” (5.1, 63-65). It is through all of these errors and mistakes that the plot of Act 5, Scene 1 helps to make Romeo and Juliet a true tragedy.
He warned Romeo that “violent delights have violent ends and in their triumph die, fire and powder, which as they kiss, consume.” (2:6:9-11). Friar Lawrence had a feeling that the quick and hasty decisions that were made would not end well. However, he continued on to marry them, believing that their marriage would stop their parents’ feud. In addition, Friar Lawrence gave Juliet the idea of faking her death and saying, “…take thou this vial, being then in bed…” (4:5:93). He suggested the plan of killing herself, which led to Romeo committing suicide due to the death of Juliet.
So far it appears to be that the Prince, Capulet, and Tybalt don’t know how to handle situations. This each has their own tragic flaw that adds to the story and will contribute to the downfall of Romeo and Juliet. It is in this scene that we really see the personalities of Tybalt and Capulet and how they will affect the story line. If Tybalt and Capulet were never to have the private conversation, then we would never see them as they truly are and would never quite understand their personalities. It is said that the behind the scenes is what is real as opposed to the play that is shown.

Romeo and Juliet- Who's Fault was it A single decision can effect the whole outcome of a situation whether it be positively or negatively. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, two families grudges separate two lovers Romeo and Juliet. The misfortunes of both Romeo and Juliet is based around the Friar and the apothecary's choices to give both Romeo and Juliet illegal drinks. Friar gave Juliet the sleeping potion so she would not have to marry Paris and could be reunited with Romeo and the apothecary gave Romeo an illegal drink that went onto harming him. These two key characters are the ones to blame for this whole confusion which ended in Romeo and Juliet dead because of no communication.
His sense of pride prevented him from admitting to the adultery. Thus, the town did not understand Abigail’s motivation as did Proctor. He could have also prevented his demise if he had chosen to sign the paper. However, he feels that his name is “not worth the dust on the feet of them that hang” and chooses death over humility. This play exhibits tragedy because, though Proctor had many opportunities to change his fate, he chooses his demise because his tragic flaw prohibits him from doing otherwise.
