However, it was not so, in fact he was the one who was always rash and rude to Juliet. There was a phrase in the play which states that: Juliet says: “My life lies in the hands of Friar Lawrence”. This should how responsible she was. So, this should also be mentioned in the Romeo and Juliet essay topics. Fate in the Romeo and Juliet Love, Romeo and Juliet on Hate are some of the Romeo and Juliet essay topics.
Some major inconsistencies occur, such as Mercutio dying at a beach, portrayed as a hero, instead of being at a bar, looking like a fool, Friar Lawrence's letter is successfully sent to Romeo by mail carriers, however he does not have the opportunity to read it, unlike in the play version, where Romeo does not get the letter from Friar John, a...
In the Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare, there were many heart touching lines and one of them was “Money is even worse than the Poison”. Nowadays there are many writers who keep on writing on different Romeo and Juliet essay topics. No one would have ever imagined that the play would become so successful. But, in all the Romeo and Juliet essay topics, one thing will be common that Friar Lawrence, which was one of the characters in the play, considered being responsible for the death of Juliet. He was the one who gave her the Poison. He always considered Juliet as an immature and unstable girl just because she loved Romeo.
Friar Lawrence actually shows his irresponsibility by saying, “If…thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself…take thou this vial…no warmth, no breath shall testify the livest” (4.1.72, 93, 98).
This quote shows the true meaning of responsibility, because when he says this, Juliet’s life rests in the Friar’s hands.
Because of his own ignorance, everyone thinks that Juliet is dead, and therefore, she gets buried alive, which never should have happened.
Had Friar Laurence not given Juliet the poison, she never would have been put in the position that she was in, which lead to her death.
Trusting Friar John to send the letter to Romeo, and not even telling him that the letter was important, was Friar Lawrence’s next big mistake.
If Friar Lawrence had personally delivered the letter, the plan might have gone more smoothly.
Friar John shows his inability to deliver the message when he says, “I could not send it, - here it is again, - nor get a messenger to bring it thee, so fearful they were of infection” (5.2.14-16) which means that Friar John was quarantined, due to an outbreak of the plague when he went to go to Mantua.
That person is Friar Lawrence, but as well I blame the power of love; Romeo and Juliet were so strongly in love and that love lead to both of their deaths....
