The between Romeo and Juliet can be compared to the love between the Finch family. In addition, it can be argued that Tom Robinson was fated to his tragic death even if he was genuinely telling the truth. Both works of literature are similar in some ways although they may appear very different. Romeo and Juliet and To Kill a Mockingbird have more similarities than differences. Despite the major differences, there are similarities within the plot, topics, and literary devices.
Romeo and Juliet had just met and they were already bewitched by each other (2.Prologue.6). The word bewitched, as used in the play, means to enchant, charm, or fascinate (2.Prologue.6). Romeo and Juliet did not have the time to get to know each other so they were enchanted by looks not personality. This quote also implies that both Romeo and Juliet are charmed by each other, which means that both of them rushed into the relationship. A rushed relationship is one that is not firmly founded.
Love is what the two pair of couples have for each other. Angry and Disappointed describe the parents feeling about their children’s relationship. Now the comparison of Romeo and Juliet and “Pyramus and Thisbe” shall begin. In the two stories there are four main differences and similarities for the first example there is the Wall which comes from “Pyramus and Thisbe” and there are the rival families which come from Romeo and Juliet. The wall in "Pyramus and Thisbe" represents the differences in their families that keep them apart.
An example of her selflessness can be seen when she says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou will not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”, where her desperation and readiness to lose her own titles and name to be with Romeo prove that what she is after is love, and not his name or the prestige that comes with it. Furthermore, Juliet is a young and extremely volatile character, and this is never better demonstrated than in this scene, where Juliet falls in love with Romeo instantly and all but takes her marriage vows in the following 30 minutes. However, all of a sudden, Juliet tells Romeo that she finds the contract “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden”, which means Juliet suddenly has hesitations about their love, and wishes for some time to go by and ensure that it will last. Next, when they are in the process of saying their goodbyes, Juliet expresses her wish to have him gone, “And yet no farther than a wanton’s bird.”, which shows how much she wishes for his proximity, though she then says a few lines farther down that “(Juliet) should kill thee with much cherishing” with which she means that she cherishes him so that she could metaphorically kill him, and is worried her love will cause him troubles. This could cause the audience to begin to wonder whether their wish for mutual
William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” discusses how people have both a monstrous and honorable side. Shakespeare demonstrates this by using syntax and figurative language in the soliloquy, “Romeo and Juliet”. In the soliloquy, a monk by the name Friar Laurence, talks about how everybody has a guilty and innocent side. In the story, the Montague and Capulet family are fierce rivals. The rivalry shows the dark side while the love of Romeo and Juliet shows light side of both families.
In Act one scene 5 Romeo and Juliet say, “ Juliet- Saints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake. Romeo- Then move not, while my prayer’s effect I take. Kisses her.” Romeo and juliet kiss each other because they “love” each other. This is Romantic love because Romeo and Juliet share their first kiss. Romantic love is shown again on lines 107-111 in act one,scene 5 Romeo and Juliet say, “ Romeo- Thus by my lips, by thine, my sin is purged.
Juliet doesn’t care if she needs to leave her own family for Rome’s love. She struggles with the conflict between her feelings for Romeo and her knowledge that he is an enemy of her family. In this quote Juliet says that ‘’ Wherefore art thou Romeo?’’. She is basically asking herself that why the love of her life needs to be from the Montague’s family. The fourth conflict happens when Romeo states his quote in Act V, Scene I, "Then I defy you, stars!”.
Not long after this scene, Romeo sneaks onto Juliet’s balcony to visit her. Upon them meeting there, they decide to get married – the next day! Juliet tells Romeo, “If that thy bent of love be honorable, thy purpose of marriage, send me word tomorrow” (2.2.143). The fact that they have only known each other for a little over a couple hours and they are already engaged only provides evidence of how true their love for one another was. Shakespeare is able to make readers see how deeply in love the couple was though they had only known each other for a short amount of time.
When he does into the area, he has to choose a door, with either a lady or a tiger. The lady knows, which one is in which door, she can't handle him being with another girl, so she points him to the tiger, that means she loves him. In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet just meets Romeo then she wants to marry him right away, that also shows that she loves him. They are similar with these
In conclusion, Shakespeare’s use of celestial imagery during the speech Romeo makes to Juliet displays Romeo’s inner universe of which he is the heart; the center that controls the other parts of the body or in this case celestial bodies. In his selfish nature, he exposes his ignorance towards his need to possess power over Juliet, too arrogant to even realize his own objectification of her. Ultimately, Romeo indirectly offers Juliet an ultimatum, her voice, her vulnerability and her freedom in exchange for not his vows of love, but of lust. Unlike Romeo’s definition of love, true love is when a person realizes that someone else 's happiness deserves to be greater than their own. It’s when someone morphs you into a better person, without forcing you to give up any part of yourself.
