Friar Laurence is responsible for the death of Juliet.


There are many reasons that say Friar is responsible for Juliet’s death..

Friar Laurence sent a messenger who just took his time with himself and his donkey. He was suppose to deliver the letter and he didn’t do it in time.

In the text it says,”Shall Romeo by my letters know our drift… And hither shall he come: and he and I”(Shakespeare).The letter didn’t get to Romeo on time to tell him the Juliet wasn’t really dead. Friar Laurence suggested the potion which juliet took. It was a potion to make her look like she is dead. In the text Juliet says,”Romeo, I come, This do I drink to thee”(Shakespeare). She’s really worried about it, but she takes the potion. It’s going to make her look like she’s dead.


"See you again" by Charlie Puth and Wiz khalifa

This song is saying, its been a long day. Without you my friend, but i'll tell you all about when I see you again. Friar Laurence ideas weren't smart. He didn't think things were end up like they did. He told her to do something that she didn't know what would happen in the end. Friar suggested some stuff that didn't come out too well. He didn't plan it out well and people ended up dead because of him. So they are no longer in their lives. So Friar maybe will see them again, in the second world. That's what the song is saying. Here are some lyrics from the song.


"It's been a long day without you, my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again (I see you again)
We've come a long way (yeah, we came a long way) from where we began (you know we started)
Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again (let me tell you)
When I see you again"

"First you both go out your way
And the vibe is feeling strong
And what's small turn to a friendship
A friendship turn to a bond
And that bond will never be broken"
"The love will never get lost So let the light guide your way, yeah

Hold every memory as you go
And every road you take, will always lead you home,"


"I know we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn't last
Had to switch up
Look at things different, see the bigger picture
Those were the days"

(Charlie Puth, Wiz khalifa)

Character analysis

The man is named Friar Laurence. A old man that was helpful. He works at the church and was helpful to both Capulet and Monologues. He was a man who wanted to solve problems, but was not so good doing it. He suggested that Juliet take a pill that would make her sleep for a long time. It almost looked like she was dead. He sent a messenger to tell Romeo she wasn't really dead because they buried her. When Romeo found her dead he was so devastated that he killed himself. So then she so happened to awake. So she saw that he was dead so then she killed herself. Friar Laurence created something that didn't have to happen. He tried helping but it didn't work, His advice was not needed n the situation.
