“I could not send it-here it is again-(gives FRIAR LAWRENCE a letter) Nor get a messenger to bring it thee, So fearful were they of infection.” If Friar John was able to deliver Friar Lawrence’s letter than Romeo would have been informed on the plan to make Juliet temporarily unconscious and not kill himself. As well as Bathasar telling Romeo, Juliet was dead. This misunderstanding was why Romeo chose to kill himself and felt like he had no reason to live anymore. If Romeo waited a few seconds longer to kill himself than Romeo and Juliet would both still be alive. If Romeo knew about the plan Romeo and Juliet would have lived together without the Montagues and Capulets knowing.
And once Romeo discovered her without knowing she was really alive, he didn’t see much point living without her and ended his life. Shakespeare orchestrated the story and made it that fate would unavoidably kill the two
Most of us have had some sort of bad luck before, like putting red in with the whites, locking yourself out of the house or waking up late, and in some cases one bad thing can lead to another… and another. In William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet it is proven to us how bad luck can lead to two deaths. The play tells the story of two lovers from feuding families who fight to stay together despite a series of bad luck. First Romeo is banished from Verona for killing Juliet’s cousin; secondly Romeo doesn’t receive the letter telling him Juliet is under a potion causing her to look dead which causes Romeo to kill himself, and lastly Juliet wakes up from her potion shortly after Romeo has poisoned himself resulting in Juliet’s suicide. Romeo and Juliet go through a series of unfortunate events which ultimately leads to their deaths.
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.
Friar Lawrence could have been blamed for giving Juliet the potion, but it was Thomas 3 Juliet's fault because she made him give her the potion. The apothecary could be to blame, but he only gave Romeo the poison because he needed the money; Romeo was at fault for bribing the apothecary. It could’ve been the Nurse’s fault since she betrayed Juliet and told her to marry Paris, causing her to go ask Friar Lawrence for help, yet Juliet was at fault because she lied to the Nurse and said she was going to go ask for forgiveness, that way the Nurse could not help prevent her death. Various things could've prevented their deaths, but if you go back into the root of the problem you will find that Romeo and Juliet were accountable for their own deaths. Romeo and Juliet died horrible deaths.
As the novel turns out, Romeo and Juliet conclude the play by committing suicide, each thinking that they shouldn’t live for the other is dead. Friar is to blame for this, because he failed to get the message across to Romeo that Juliet is faking her death. Friar is the one who should be given all the blame. As a result of his absent mindedness, Romeo feels that his life is worthless, for Juliet has
Other families have suffered losses because of the feud between these two families that lasted for generations. Most of these deaths would never have occurred if the two families were not fighting. Furthermore, Friar Lawrence told Lord Capulet that Juliet sought advice to avoid the marriage to Paris without disobeying her father; she even threatened to kill herself in his chamber if the Friar refused to help (5:3:236-241). Lord Capulet should not have yelled or threatened Juliet over an arranged marriage to Paris. He pressured her into drinking the concoction out of desperation.
Gave the potion to Juliet to simulate death. Friar Laurence is also responsible for not stopping Juliet from killing herself with Romeos dagger. The mailman who wasn’t willing to go deliver the latter of Juliet was going to fake her death but the mail man didn’t want to deliver it because the city was invested with diseases and didn’t want to risk getting them.Tyblat is responsible because he was trying to start a fight with Romeo but since Romeo didn’t Care so Mercutio fought Tyblat instead. Then Tyblat killed Mercutio and then Romeo killed Tyblat. “They fight.
/ 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
/ For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (I.v.50-51) This shows his impulsiveness by not mentioning Rosaline at all and starting to fall in love with a girl he does not even know. Yet does he know she is a Capulet. Romeo’s action of falling in love leads to much grief of others. It leads to the deaths of Romeo, Juliet, Tybalt, Mercutio, Paris, and Lady Montague. The fates and lives of these people, Romeo included, could have been spared if his tragic flaw had not taken over when
