Romeo and Juliet

Friar Laurence is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet. He should not have married them if he knew they weren’t allowed to be married. Juliet was supposed to marry Paris, but she couldn’t because Friar Laurence had already married her to Romeo. “In one respect i’ll thy assistant be; For this alliance may so happy prove, to turn your households’ rancour to pure love”(2.3 90-93). Romeo had asked Friar Laurence to marry him to Juliet knowing that it was wrong.


Also, he gave Juliet the poison. “Take tho this vial, being then in bed, and this distilled liquor drink thou off: when presently through all thy veins shall run a cold and drowsy humour” (4.1 93-96). Without the poison, she wouldn’t have tricked Romeo into thinking she was dead. Romeo only killed himself because he thought Juliet was dead and he wanted to be with her. Although Romeo and Juliet loved each other, Friar Laurence should not have gotten into their relationship because he only caused more problems.

Alesana - Early Mourning

Last night I forgot
How the sound of your voice whispered sweet
Goodbyes,
Your eyes, left to die
I'm alone to understand why

Why not one more night?
One last kiss goodbye?
My sweet love tonight
I hope the stars
Still spell out your name
Where you are...

Kiss my closing eyes
Help me sleep
Without you I'm so lost
Tonight I cry
Tell me why
I can't live without your warm embrace

Why not one more night?
One last kiss goodbye?
My sweet love tonight
I hope the stars still
Spell out your name
Where you are...

I close my eyes and you are everything I see
Goodbye

Goodbye to you my love
I won't forget you
I'll see you soon
Goodbye my love
Goodbye to you my love
I won't forget you
Let me live



This song compares to the death of Romeo and Juliet because it is talking about how sad it is to lose someone you love.

Titanic

The titanic relates to Romeo and Juliet because two people love each other but can't be together. Eventually, they end up dead together. Just like Romeo and Juliet.
