All that fighting causes Romeo to be banished. After all that, Romeo allegedly hears of Juliet 's “death” so he goes back to Verona and kills himself next to Juliet. Then Juliet wakes up next to the dead Romeo and kills herself with his dagger. Overall, Romeo and Juliet show love is stronger than hate as they risk their lives just to see each other and eventually die together. Hate may have killed them, but hate is not enough to disrupt their love, they are still together, even when they are dead.
Suicide is the act of intentionally causing one's own death, usually due to mental or emotional conflict. Although both of the two star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, commit this act due to their forbidden love, it is not the only contribution to their deaths. It is reasonable to blame their tragedy of double-suicide on fate. But, more realistically, mistakes are made because they are young, naive, and not being counselled properly. Romeo and Juliet, a theatrical romantic tragedy assumed to be written by William Shakespeare in 1596, is a play in which adults and friends fail in their duties to influence the two lovers to make proper decisions, which lead to the heartbreaking deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
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
Although ultimately leading to their death, the prevailing love between Romeo and Juliet is the catalyst that mends their family’s feud. The powerful ending in this play that Shakespeare creates aligns with Aristotle’s definition of tragedy by “effecting the proper purgation of these emotions [catharsis]" such as pity and fear. The first time we experience fear is when Juliet and Romeo realize they are enemies and we fear the repercussions of this relationship. This is specifically a formidable problem because their families are ancient enemies. At the Capulet party, when Romeo is found out to be a Montague, Tybalt yells, “Now, by the stock and honor of my kin,/To strike him dead I hold it not a sin” (Tybalt 1.5.66-67).
While talking to Romeo, she states “If they do see thee they will murder the,”(II.ii.70). She is worried about what her family would get in between them and kill Romeo if they found out. This makes Juliet out to be more mature in her thinking because she is considering the possible consequences of their relationship, unlike Romeo. Afterwards, Juliet also says to Romeo ”I have no joy in this contract to-night:/ It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden,/ Too like the lightning, which doth cease to be,“ (II.ii17-19) Juliet is afraid that their relationship is developing too quickly, like how lightning disappears in seconds. She wants to wait another day to see if their love is true instead of agreeing to love that may disappear before she can fully experience it.
But even before Juliet knew it was Romeo she said, “If he’s married, I think I’ll die rather than marry anyone else.”(1.5.134-135). She is saying that if this individual she just met is married, she rather die than marry anyone else, but when she gets told that its Romeo she knows he's not married but it is her worst rival. So Juliet could use this to escape marrying Paris, but also escape the family feuds. They weren’t in love because they were using this marriage to escape their families and other
A Worthy Nurse Romeo and Juliet, a classical piece of literature, written by William Shakespeare, conveys the importance of a maternal figure in a developing teen. Juliet, a young woman of the house Capulets, falls in love with Romeo, of the house of Montague, and marries him with the aid of her Nurse and the priest Friar Laurence. Through much complications, such as Juliet faking her own death, so that she can later be with Romeo. Eventually, both Romeo and Juliet can’t think of living without the other, resulting in both of their deaths. Their deaths weren’t random though as influences from other characters that were close to them played a big role in the actions of the characters.
She just thought of herself and how she would be with Romeo. They both should have stopped what they were doing and thought about their actions, but hatred was making their minds think another way. Hatred drove Romeo and Juliet to be secretive, lie, communicate poorly, and to not think clearly. The fear of showing some hope that the hatred is gone influenced a friar to do some bad things. Friar Laurence was the one who secretly married Juliet but for the reason that it might put an end to the ancient feud; however, he lacked good judgment during this time.
Love and hate were two major themes that were mainly focused on in the book and movie of Romeo and Juliet which is known to be the most tragic love story in history.The play was about two young lovers who came from two families the Montagues and the capulets who have held an intense grudge for many years and neither of them are willing to forgive and forget because of their pride and honour they have to uphold. Despite the grudge between the two families the attraction between Romeo and Juliet was strong. The fact that they were on opposite families made Romeo want to be with Juliet even more .When they first met they were very attracted to each other and Romeo knowing that Juliet was a capulet he still decided to treat with respect because he was already deeply in love Romeo expressed his love for her: “O she doth teach the torches to burn bright! Its seems she hangs upon the cheek of night as a rich jewel in an Ethiop’s ear.’’(1.5.42-44).
Imagine walking down the street, only to see a stranger that will be your spouse within hours. Could that be love? In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the couple meets, and they instantly claim to have fallen for each other. Their families hate each other, making their “love” forbidden. This ultimately leads young Romeo and Juliet to take their own lives.
