English Essay Kayleigh Commins Mrs. Viggiano 6/6/11 Who is it to Blame?
Romeo and Juliet, both dead cause they’d loved each other dearly. Whose fault could’ve it be? Was it cause of Tybalt, Friar Lawrence, or the parents? There are many reasons why these two died the way they did. I believe the one who is to blame is Friar Lawrence. Why do I believe it was Friar Lawrence’s fault? Well, first off he never told the parents that Romeo and Juliet were getting married. If he had, then maybe the family could’ve figured something out and stop fighting for their kids. He should’ve told Balthasar, Romeo’s slave, about Juliet’s fake death so that way Romeo won’t kill himself by drinking the poison from the apothecary. Another thing is that he should’ve sent the letter or went to Mantua himself to tell Romeo what’s going on. Instead of having Friar John to do it, then fail to send it to him. Friar Lawrence should’ve known better of what was going on and he rarely did anything.
Yes, I understand that he was risking his life and was helping Romeo and Juliet be together, but he could’ve done it a better way without anyone getting hurt or killed. Or he could’ve not get them together and say no to Romeo that they’ll not get married. He’s the one who can choose whether or not they can get married. Friar Lawrence should’ve put a stop to the feud of the Montague’s and the Capulet’s, instead of standing there hoping that by having Romeo and Juliet married will make them stop fighting.
