Later going to sleep, he would feel the fiery smile still gripped by his face muscles, in the dark. It never went away, that smile, it never ever went away, as long as he remembered. ”(Bradbury 2) This quote shows, how he has chosen to conform to his society and hold on to the illusion of happiness as long as he remembered. However, after acknowledging his feelings of displeasure over the world only deepen as the texts progress.
Romeo and Juliet want to get married so Romeo goes to Friar Laurence. “Then plainly know my heart's dear love is set on the fair daughter of the rich Capulet (2.3.57-58).” Romeo and Juliet love each other a lot so they choose to get married without thinking of the consequences. Even some of the smarter people in Verona make huge mistakes. Even the friar who gives the advice doesn't think before he makes his decision.
Gifted in wit, manipulation, and powers of diversion, both Menenius and Mercutio were characters that worked more or less behind the scenes, shrouded in the shadows of their stories’ heroes and left to scheme without interference. For Romeo, Mercutio is a friend, advisor (though his advice is occasionally unscrupulous, at best), and protector, who cares dearly about Romeo and his wellbeing. Mercutio makes it his ultimate goal to keep Romeo “on track”; however, what Romeo sees as his path in life is a very different one than Mercutio sees for him. Romeo has a tendency to walk with his head in the clouds, dreaming of romance and peace, falling in love left and right, paying no attention to the harsh reality he lives in. Mercutio wants to make sure Romeo stays rooted to the ground, so he doesn’t fly off completely and leave Mercutio behind.
Looking at the handout Taxonomy of Love by, John Alan Lee, Romeo is considered an Ero and Juliet is considered a Storge, which are two different kind of lovers, but it wasn’t the reason why they went to downhill. Romeo has a love style called Ero. I consider Romeo an Ero type of lover because he had a nice childhood with a relationship with his parents and the Montague family. He
As Romeo’s complete opposite, or foil, Mercutio often mocks the romance Romeo longs for, focusing instead on the physical aspects of love. For example, when Romeo becomes lovesick for his old flame, Mercutio teases the idea with, “If love be rough with you, be rough with love; / Prick love for pricking and you beat love down” (Rom.I.4.27,28). Sarcastic and carefree jokes such as this one
Holden thinks of sex as "a spiritual experience" where he can 't do it with a girl "[he] don 't like a lot" (Salinger 162) (Salinger 163). He needs to be with a girl how he has feeling for, not just a random stranger. This shows he don 't take advantage of
He still had feelings for her. The young teenager needed advice, but Benvolio gave him a bad advice. He wanted to show to his cousin, Romeo, that even if you lost your love, there is still other women in the city. The message of Benvolio: you can still find love with someone else. His cousin, Benvolio, said “At this same ancient feast of Capulet’s sups the fair Rosaline whom thou so lovest, with all the admired beauties of Verona: go thither; and, with unattainted eye, compare her face with some that I shall show, and I will make thee think thy swan a crown” (I.ii. 359).
For Romeo and Juliet, the forbidden aspect of their “love” made it so much sweeter. Just like many teens today, Romeo and Juliet defied their parents and did what they wanted to. If Romeo and Juliet would have taken responsibility for their actions and told their parents about their relationship, this story might not have ended as tragic as it
These factors contribute to how they acknowledge the circumstances given. Romeo may go about reacting to the situations that are presented in an impulsive, irrational manner. Tony reacts in a more practical and mature demeanor. However, it is evident that both characters will do anything for their lovers, Juliet and Maria due to their passion and
Mercutios relationship with Romeo is a foil because their beliefs are extremely controversial with each other's. Fates, dreams and love are few of the thoughts where they disagree, and there opinions on each matter were shown a myriad throughout the play , this is shown to be true when Romeo states, "In bed asleep, while they do dreams come true" (1.4, lns 52). This quote supports my answer because Romeo is stating that your dream are prophecies where Mercutio, "...nothing but fantasy" (1.4, lns 98) believes that they mean nothing and are just childish thought. Another quote from the text that supports my answer is between Romeo and Mercutio, "And, to sink in it, should you burden love- too great oppression for a tender thing" (1.4, lns 23-24)
Benvolio is a character in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet that has served as a great friend to Romeo and a peacemaker, my slide captivates his person entirely. He has helped Romeo throughout the story, by providing support and encouragement not only with Rosaline but again with Juliet. When Romeo was grieving over being in love with Rosaline Benvolio was the only one that could get through to Romeo and figure out what was wrong, he simply asked “[t]ell me in sadness, who is that you love?”(1.1.207) and Romeo trusted him enough to answer honestly. Rather than leaving Romeo and acting like it was not of importance he stood by his side and said he would “rather weep”(1.1.189) with him. To symbolize his friendship to Romeo I chose to add a yellow rose, which is said to be the flower of friendship and a panda, which also represents friendship (Reference.com).
Mercutio is one of the main and most interesting characters in Romeo and Juliet. There are three word that I think best describe Mercutio, those words are kind, smart, and brave. This is why those words describe him. The first word I would use to describe Mercutio is smart.
My so called "lens" is author's craft. One thing you may notice about my descriptions is they will often contain theme and character development, because, how I view author's craft is how the author sets up the themes and character developments through elements of literature. So, I have to first analyze the metaphors, similes, etc., then describe how those pertain to the theme and characters and finally then relate that to author's craft. William Shakespeare's character Friar Lawrence adds so much to the story, he understands what is happening between Romeo and Juliet, and he tries to help by giving them what they want. He understands just how deep it goes between them and how crazy they are for each other, and just in general.
Mercutio plays the role of Romeo’s cousin, and a troubled friend. He shows this part of himself during the Queen Mab speech where he is seen longing for something. In the speech, he continuously gets angrier and angrier, telling Romeo and his friends “This is the very Mab..” (1.4.89), “This is the hag…” (1.4.93), and then finally “This is she-”
