William Shakespeare is an unsurpassed master of words. The number of writers and poets who could describe as truly and accurately certain events, certain characters and landscapes as Shakespeare did is incredibly small. I even can admit the possibility of the fact that they do not even exist at all. William Shakespeare is something like an ideal for most writers and most litterateurs are always trying to follow his literature style. His works are still international bestsellers and literary masterpieces. I think that all people in the whole world probably at least once heard about such characters as Hamlet or Romeo or Juliet. His works are a heritage of all mankind. That's why we decided to compare the two characters of tragedy "Romeo and Juliet," Romeo and Friar Lorenzo, in our article. If you want to know more about their fates and the nature of these characters, read our article. Well, let’s start!
Brother Lorenzo is one of the characters of the tragedy, the monk, the confessor of Romeo and Juliet, secretly married them. Lorenzo is a true believer. He is not a hermit retired from the world, who is the solitary believer. He did not choose the way of ecstatic contemplating the Divine, on the contrary, he takes an active part in the fate of their fellow men, whatever paths they choose in this life. He does not condemn them and prays for all leaving the right to judge them only to God. When Romeo for the first time tells him about the love of Juliet, Lorenzo immediately sees the development of their relations and the ability to stop the absurd and bloody feud families. Lorenzo won a victory over the passions guided by reason: "Nature is weak and crying, but the mind is hard to win".
As for Romeo, he is young and romantic young man. The author describes him as a naive young man. He walks all the time with friends. Romeo fell in love with Rosalind, senseless beauty girl. However, the love of Juliet is quite different. These feelings completely changed his outlook. The author colorfully depicts the tragic way of life of the hero.
Therefore, we have described to important characters of one of the masterpieces of William Shakespeare. Both of them play very important role in the story line. However, we have to admit that Lorenzo is only additional character, who is going to help Romeo and Juliet to be together forever.
