The functions of Friar Laurence in Romeo and Juliet William Shakespeares story Romeo and Juliet is certainly one of the most known and appreciated classics of all times Almost everyone who went to school has already heard about this story of two teenagers Romeo and Juliet that fall in a powerful love But their love is an impossible love because their families the Montague and the Capulet are great enemies Romeo sees Juliet for the first time in a supper at Capulets house They immediately fall in love and they decide to get married in secret by Friar Laurence The problems begin when the cousin of Juliet Tybalt kill Mercutio a friend of Romeo Romeo then kill Tybalt and he is banish from the town Juliet is then force to married Paris but just before with the help of Friar Laurence they try a plan to escape this marriage by giving her a distilling liquor drink to fake her death during twenty-four hours The plan is to escape with Romeo but it do not work because Friar Laurence is unable to send his letter to Romeo Romeo and Juliet finally commit suicide for each other at the end At first we can think that Friar Laurence has a secondary role in the story But in analysing more only his character and the actions in the story we discover that Friar Laurence plays a major role in what happens to Romeo and Juliet In my essay I will describe the functions of Friar Laurence who is the moral centre of this love story that ends dramatically I will demonstrate that Friar Laurence helps Romeo and Juliet with their love but that he is also responsible of their tragic death Without Friar Laurence Romeo and Juliet will never have been married Friar Laurence made this marriage quickly Come come with me and we will make short work For by your leaves
