Friar Laurence knows that Romeo and Juliet have feelings for each other. Friar Laurence is even the man that was willing to marry Romeo and Juliet. While Romeo and Friar Laurence were waiting for Juliet on the altar, Friar Laurence tells Romeo,“These violent delights have a violent ends/ And in their triumph die.” (2.5.9-10) Friar Laurence knows that their marriage will bring about consequences, and he still chose to marry them. If Friar Laurence didn’t marry Romeo and Juliet, their deaths wouldn’t have occurred. After Romeo is banished from Verona, Friar Laurence helps Juliet come up with a plan for her not to marry Paris.
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.
Although, marrying Romeo and Juliet secretly doesn’t follow society but Romeo trusts Friar Laurence and he is willing to marry them for Romeo. The Friar gives Juliet a plan to get out of the marriage with Paris: Hold, daughter! I do spy a kind of hope, Which craves as desperate and execution As that is desperate which we would prevent, 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, That copest with death himself to ’scape from it; And, if thou darest, I’ll give thee remedy. (4.1.68-76) Friar gives Juliet a vile where she will drink it and look dead for forty-two hours. He sends a letter for Romeo but it couldn’t be received by him because of a plague.
Friar Laurence also marries them for another reason based on love, he wishes for the children of both families to live in peace and end the feud. Also, Romeo’s love for Juliet prevented him from accepting Tybalt’s challenge to a duel, until his comrade, Mercutio is slain. This
The plan sounds good at first, but when the slightest mistake happens the plan ends in devastation. I think the Friar acts foolishly because, firstly, he is the one who marries Romeo and Juliet. Since Romeo and Juliet are two children who were married at a young age, it made them unable to make considered decisions. Friar Lawrence's other foolish action is giving Juliet a potion that will put her into a death-like sleep "Take thou this vial, being then in bed, And this distilling liquor drink thou off," He does send a message to Romeo, but it dosnt reach Romeo. The Friar helps Juliet fake her death and fool her parents.
‘Good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as my own.’ The audience know the reason why Romeo won’t fight Tybalt, which is because Romeo and Juliet are now married. ‘The reason that I have to love thee.’ The audience know that Romeo must love Tybalt because they are now related. The other characters did not know about the wedding and are confused by what Romeo is saying. The dramatic irony in this scene makes it such an intense scene to watch. It is also a significant scene because it leads to Mercutio fighting Tybalt and Mercutios death.
B.Not all of the youth see it so, Mercutio Montague had a keen bloodlust. C.Romeo and Juliet suffer greatly, their marriage couldn't stop the war, and it was the feud that killed them both. V.The young and old are very different. A.They both have their own morales and reasons. B.The elder wage their war without thinking of the next generation.
To stop Romeo, the Friar suggests that he and Juliet should consummate their marriage, and afterwards, they can try to get the Prince's pardon. Comforted, Romeo agrees and prepares to see Juliet. The three characters will receive instructions from the director to showcase the strong difference between the youth and the old, which is important in this situation as the adult characters think and act rationally to the point of being emotionally detached, while the youth, typical of social stereotypes, think too emotionally and seek to act impetuously without thinking of
Tybalt coveted to extrude Romeo out from the reception except Lord Capulet tolerated Romeo because of his umpteen lauds. During the courtship party Tybalt recognized Romeo, “by his voice, [and that he was] a Montague [... their] foe; A villain, that [was] hither come in spite [...] content thee, gentle coz, [leave] him alone. ‘A bears him like a portly gentleman [...] he shall be endured” (I.5.59-84). Romeo would never have been able to meet Juliet if Lord Capulet had let Tybalt eject him from their gathering. Lord Capulet essentially endorsed Juliet’s relationship with Romeo without even knowing it.
However, people still argue if one has one or more of these factors that they are still responsible for their actions no matter what the circumstances are, they should be able to fight their emotions to do what is right or wrong. Now is Othello completely responsible for killing Desdemona and his tragic demise or has his mind been manipulated by certain events and people, especially Iago? That is the question in hand. Iago, Othello’s trusted advisor had fought alongside Othello as a soldier for several years. Now at the beginning of the play, Iago is distraught and is feeling hard done by because he has been put aside from promotion and instead is replaced by Othello’s lieutenant in favour, Michael Cassio.
