Before I begin explaining let's go back to the story. Wouldn't it make sense that the families are the ones to blame? If not them, then the whole entire plan wouldn't need to be held. If not their obnoxious generalization Romeo and Juliet could have lived. The parents should have realized that they are teenagers, and that this love can lead to dramatic and a fatal ending. On the other hand, Romeo just fell for Rosalyn so his sudden change in feelings shouldn't have been considered even serious enough to discuss. How many teenagers over-exaggerate how they feel? However, in my essay, the purpose is to convince the reader that not only the obvious facts of the story matter. The brilliant plot made up by William Shakespeare doesn't just tell us a story about, "Two families in a fight can lead to severe consequences". As well as that we can see that some other characters could have prevented the tragedy of all tragedies. One of the first people I'd like to start with is, Frier Lawrence. This character, let's go back a little, wanted to get Romeo and Juliet married not just because he felt bad, but also to stop the fight between the two families. He was definitely trying to help, but knowing about this ridiculous plan wasn't he old enough to let the kids know? The truth is, something as small as a letter led to such a mess up. Only because of this letter Romeo didn't know Juliet was going to "kill herself". Not only Frier Lawrence gave her poison, but he also made the whole plan up. Yes, if he wouldn't have helped Juliet, after she asked, she might have killed herself and the story would have repeated. However, there must have been a better solution than the one he suggested. Another reason why this plan doesn't work, is because there was a bigger percent of it not working than working. One of the true purposes in this tragedy is to make us understand that some plans just shouldn't happen. Frier Lawrence is absolutely a nice man, but whether or not he's smart is a different question. We can also try to blame God and fate for what has happened- as people like to say "karma."
