He does this despite not knowing her because the pleasure he experiences from being loved by Juliet keeps him from analyzing the danger of the situation. Juliet agrees to marry Romeo when they see each other again the night they met. The connection between the two lovers is reminiscent of the quote, “Parting is all we need to know of hell” (Dickens) because the two are so drawn to each other that they cannot bear to be apart. “Romantic love is like a cocaine high, except you can come down from a cocaine high. Romantic love is an obsession” (Helen Fisher).
Friar Laurence states, “violent delights” 2.2.9-15) This quote shows how wize Friar Laurence is because he knows that the marriage between Romeo and Juliet was being rushed. Friar Laurence states, “the sweetest honey is loathsome” (2.6.9-15). Friar Laurence is saying that even things that are amazing at first can turn out to be terrible. Friar Laurence is a wize man who helps Romeo and Juliet in the hope that their marriage would end the two families feuds. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses figurative language to help his audience understand what each character is like and how he or she will act.
During adolescence, there is an increase in the neurotransmitter dopamine which is responsible for pleasure in the reward system. This chemical can be abused by teens by engaging in risky behavior and making quick and easy decisions instead of taking the time to critically think (Seigel). The combination of risky behavior and reward is perilous and can lead down a dangerous path. Love and or spending time with other loved ones can also triggers the release of dopamine. Romeo and Juliet both make the decision to risk their futures by continuing to meet with each other in secrecy.
(Shakespeare 2.2.50) From the quote, you can see that the decision of Romeo to go after Juliet after the dance helps them get closer to the tragic end. This is not the only careless decision from continuing to pursue each other. Romeo and Juliet start to make it a pattern of making poor decisions, like them waiting to be married. Juliet is speaking to Romeo about, “Thy purpose marriage” while Juliet is on her balcony and Romeo is below. (Shakespeare 2.2.144) The quote shown helps it to be seen that Romeo and Juliet going after each other is causing them to make not good decisions.
William Shakespeare, believing infatuation was true love , gave many examples of infatuation in the play. Romeo and Juliet were infatuated as proven by Friar Lawrence’s lectures, Romeo’s comments, and Juliet’s remarks. Friar Lawrence’s lectures proved Romeo and Juliet were infatuated. When Romeo told the Friar that he forgot about Rosaline, the Friar yelled, “ What a deal of brine Hath washed thy sallow cheeks for Rosaline !” (A2,S3,L76-77) The Friar evinces the audience that Romeo *acts upon his emotions because he quickly became besotted with Juliet, and he paid no attention to Rosaline, even though he cried for months because she did not return his affections. When Romeo was exiled he wished for his own death , the Friar reminded him,” Thy Juliet is alive, For whose dear sake thou wast but lately dead.” (A3 S3 L152-153) Romeo was acting without thought and did not think about the grief he would cause Juliet if he killed himself.
Right before the party, where Juliet and Romeo first meet, Paris decides that he wants Juliet to be his wife, which causes problems to both families. He starts to cause this drama when he exclaims to Capulet, “Younger mothers are happy mothers made” (1.2.12). This shows that Paris is willing to say anything to make Juliet his wife, which is the younger she is, the better. This contributes to the tragedy because when he says this, Capulet decides to give Paris a chance at marriage with Juliet later in the play. This chance at marriage gets Paris one step closer to having Juliet.
The continued growth drives to risk taking, uncontrollable impulsive behavior, easily embarrassed, impress friends, excessive mood swings, and self-consciousness. My thesis on adolescent brain development sheds light on some of the nonsensical decision making is Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, as characters certainly face the impulse control, self-consciousness, and risk taking. First off, Romeo acts on how he’s feeling at that moment. “ O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do! They pray; grant thou, lest faith turn to despair.” page 1016.
Without thinking, Romeo and Juliet became victims of their own love chargeable to Friar Lawrence, young age and fate. First, I believe Friar Laurence is to blame is of how unfaithful he was throughout the story. For example, “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households' rancor to pure love.” (2.3.96-99). This shows that Friar Laurence doesn't believe that Romeo's love for Juliet is authentic, but he agrees to marry them anyway.
Romeo and Juliet, a play, a tale of two, sane, mundane lovers, and of course their wonderful in-laws, yes? No for what would such a story be without any drama? The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, by famed Renaissance playwright William Shakespeare, lacks such content and carries quite the opposite. These two lovers through a lack of communication and short-sighted choices dig themselves and their relatives down the rabbit hole to the extent of their deaths. However, it is the impulsivity of Lord Capulet and his daughter Juliet throughout the play that creates troubling situations for these young adults, resulting in the tragedy of young people being forced to make adult decisions.
It is already attached to teenagers in general, but this time I will discuss it more deeply. The purpose of this essay is to explain about risks-hobbies that teenagers do nowadays and how it would affect their lives. The first current harmful hobby for adolescences is doing bad party. Some teenagers would go for an event or occasion, where they could hear good music, dance, drink, and meet new people. This is very common because there are many teenagers who do that to relieve their stress.
Romeo and Juliet fell in love within mere seconds, without contemplating the consequences the love may cause. Willing to “Deny thy father and refuse thy name,” Juliet sacrifices her family for the adolescent romance (2.2.37). Passion blinds Juliet from reality, causing her to disregard their family complications. The young love promotes Juliet to risk her family for this young infatuation she possesses with Romeo. Ever since they laid eye’s on one another, Romeo and Juliet continuously formulate careless decisions, such as determining to get married.
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is widely known as a horrible tragedy about two teen lovers whose death bring their feuding families together. While there may be a dramatic ending to the play, it starts off as a funny and delightful comedy. To divert the audience’s attention from the cruel reality of the play, Shakespeare focuses on the parts that make it entertaining for the audience. If humor was not added, Romeo and Juliet would have been a very tiresome romance about love and death. Many of the puns in the play are put in frequently for humor, with one main goal of making the audience laugh.
The Fatal Flaws of Romeo Have you ever loved someone so much that you would be willing to give your life to be with them? In Shakespeare’s compelling play, Romeo and Juliet, that was the decision that Romeo and Juliet had to make. Romeo and Juliet were born into families that had been hostile toward each other for generations. When Romeo, a member of the Montague family, met Juliet, of the Capulet family, he immediately wanted to marry her despite their opposing families. Juliet’s father, Lord Capulet, had already decided he would marry her off to Paris, a member of the Capulet family, so Juliet decided to run away.
Describe the novel’s settings by choosing an act and explain the significance of each scene: In the first act of the play it explains the family feud, gender role, and how Romeo and Juliet’s young love was composed. The first scene has a fight as it’s opening to not only attract the audience, but to describe the Capulets and Montagues family feud. Then following the fight, Romeo enters and speaks to Benvolio about how he is infatuated about a girl, Rosaline, who doesn’t desire him. Following the first scene, Lord Capulet is talking to Paris, a suitor in the play, about letting him marry his daughter. During this conversation Paris had convinced Lord Capulet and made a plan for Juliet to fall in love with Paris by inviting him to a feast.
Senselessly, Romeo risks his life by encountering Juliet. He acts blindsided to the fact that disturbance can approach for conversing with the enemy. In Similarity, Romeo experiences such great elation in the presence of love with Juliet that he will accomplish anything to prove it, including the irrational act of marriage. To demonstrate that Romeo’s love for Juliet ceases to fade, Romeo seeks Friar Lawrence and “pray[s]: That thou consent marry [them] today” (2.3.60). Just like that, it takes two days for Romeo to come across his darling and decide on the absurd idea of matrimony.
