Romeo And Juliet

Friar Lawrence Is The One To Blame

In assumption, the situation gives the impression that Friar Lawrence is the cause of this tragic death of both Rome and Juliet. Sadly, with this said one of the whys and wherefores is that Friar Lawrence married Romeo and Juliet only three hours after they met. Friar Lawrence knew he should not do something so sudden, but did so nonetheless, with this Lawrence said, "I'll thy assistant be; for this alliance may be so happy prove, to turn your households' rancor to pure love" (2.3.90-92). Friar Lawrence was accepting in his decision in marrying both Romeo and Juliet even though they only knew each other a short period of time, this aforementioned is one of the many reasons to why Romeo and Juliet ended up killing themselves. Friar Lawrence is partly to blame of the death of Romeo and Juliet for which he provided Juliet a potion. This said potion was made for her to sleep, but sadly Romeo thought she was dead, therefor he ended his life, to be with his one true love forever. Friar Lawrence did not intend for this to happen but then again speaks, “Take thou this vial, being then in bed, and this distilled liquor drink thou off" (1.1.93-94). In conclusion, Friar Lawrence was accepting to help Juliet, in which he gave her the potion that ends up making both Romeo and Juliet tragically killing themselves.



Two lovers, both alike in cutiny,
In Verona, where we lay our mean scene,
From ancient grudge break to new scrutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life;
Whose miss adventured piteous overthrows
Doth with their death bury their parents' strife.
The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Which, but their children's end, could not remove,
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

Character Analysis - Juliet

Juliet starts out as a naïve girl who's dependent on her family and ends up a woman willing to desert that family to be with the man she loves—over the course of five days.

When we first meet Juliet, she's insisting that marriage is "an honor that I dream not of" (1.3.71), i.e. she's not even thinking about it. But the minute she meets Romeo, she's sending her nurse to find out if he's married.

We see this change again when she goes from essentially insisting that she could never love a Montague even if he is super dreamy, to "My bounty is as boundless as the sea / My love as deep. The more I give to thee / the more I have, for both are infinite" (2.2.140-142). The next step? S-E-X. By the end of Act 3, Scene 2, Juliet has basically completed her entire adolescence in a matter of a few minutes.
