/ ...he is not the flower of courtesy” (40). The nurse is now saying that she thinks Juliet made the wrong choice choosing Romeo and she should have chosen her family's recommendation, Paris. After the news of Romeo being exiled is delivered to Juliet, Juliet breaks down. The nurse then tells Juliet she will “find Romeo/ to comfort [her]” (52). The nurse once again takes action to bring Romeo
¨For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo¨. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is a story of two lovers who take their life all because of a misunderstanding. However, who is to blame for their tragic demise? The parents who made the two lovers feel like outcasts must be to blame. The Capulets forced Juliet to marry Paris, the constant fighting made them want to keep the marriage secret, and made Romeo and Juliet to scared to say anything.
Personal desire and choosing to conform is a battle between right and wrong, shown in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, because Juliet chooses Romeo over everyone else, pursuing what she wants to make herself happy, but everyone else in the family views this as wrong. Juliet wants to do the right thing, which is doing what makes her happy. Lady Capulet wants to know Juliet’s idea of getting married but Juliet does not want to get married, which upsets her family and the nurse. “It is an honour that I dream not of.” (Act 1, Scene 3, line 68). Juliet feels that she is too young and too immature to get married, she wants to explore what makes her happy.
As the Montague and Capulet families have an ongoing feud, and Romeo and Juliet belong to opposite sides, it is inevitable that Juliet will have to choose between her family and husband at some point. Thus, when a situation such as this one occurs, her loyalty has proven to be more towards Romeo than her parents. To begin, one instance in which Juliet shows her loyalty to Romeo is when her parents want her to marry Count Paris, but she defies them and marries Romeo instead. She blatantly goes against their wishes and stays loyal to Romeo. While arguing with her parents on the issue, Juliet says, “‘I pray you, tell my lord and father, madam, I will not marry yet; and, when I do, I swear, It shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris.
They try to overcome their families hating each other, however, they cannot overcome it and eventually they die because of the feud. The people in the play take many risks because of love for each other. Romeo takes many risks because of his love for Juliet. One of the risks he takes is that he goes to the Capulet’s orchard even though he is not necessarily allowed to. He goes because he wants to see Juliet again.
At one point in the play, the Friar decides to turn a simple plan into something complicated that results in both Romeo and Juliet dying. When Juliet demands Friar give her a solution for her problem, he responds: “A thing like death to chide away this shame, / That cop’st with death himself to scape from it” (4.1.74-75). The friar could have taken the situation of Juliet wanting to die by telling her that death is not the solution and to talk with her parents and tell the truth. Instead, the Friar decided to take this simple situation and made it complicated by telling Juliet she needs to fake her own death. Then, when Romeo and the Nurse are concerned about Romeo and Juliet’s Marriage, the Friar thinks he can fix the situation by saying: “To blaze your marriage, reconcile your friends, / Beg pardon of the Prince, and call thee back” (3.3.151-152).
Fate is a power that some people believe determines a person’s future. In the play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, fate prevents Romeo’s and Juliet’s intense love. The play is about these two teenagers during the Renaissance who fall in love, but they are from different families, Capulet and Montague who are in a prolonged quarrel. Despite the obstacles, Romeo and Juliet wed and a sequence of events cause Romeo and Juliet both to die. There are multiple occasions where fate gets in the way of Romeo and Juliet such as when Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo being banished, Juliet being forced to marry Paris, the failure of Romeo being informed of Juliet’s fake death and Romeo killing himself.
Juliet marries Romeo. Friar Lawrence, and Juliet’s most trusted advisor, the Nurse, are the only ones who know. Lord Capulet is planning a secret wedding between Juliet and Paris, which Juliet did not want. Juliet did tell her mother of her reasons why she did not want to marry Paris, but Lady Capulet dismissed it, feeling ashamed saying “Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word. / Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee” (3.5.
Lord Capulet who also known as Juliet’s father, wants to make all Capulets happy from the grief of Tybalt’s death by using Juliet. But Juliet does not want to follow Lord Capulet’s order. Which is married to Paris, even it will be the good news for all Capulets. Juliet doesn’t want to marry Paris because she loves Romeo and both of them are already married by Friar Lawrence. So Juliet finds the way to avoid the wedding by Friar Lawrence’s helping.
Further proving her love, Juliet would rather her whole family think she was dead than marry a man that was not Romeo. In Act Five, when Romeo thought that Juliet was dead, he was ready to kill himself but Paris confronted him: “Put not another sin upon my head, by urging me to fury: O, be gone! By heaven, I love thee better than myself;” Even when Romeo is completely upset and mad that Paris was there, his love for Juliet kept him from starting conflict with anyone associated with her family. Their love was so strong that he continued to honor her wishes even when he thought she was dead. Altogether, the theme develops a great amount along with the story and helps the understand the
A famous line spoken by the heroine of the play Romeo and Juliet. Our heroine Juliet goes through many conflicts through the course of this play. From rushing into marriage, to being torn between Tybalt and Romeo, to killing herself to be with her beloved. Yet throughout the play Juliet shows us that she isn’t the quiet and obedient girl she was portrayed as in the beginning, because as she meets and falls in love with Romeo she is loving, witty, loyal, and strong. In Act II Romeo goes to visit Juliet but as he is hidden she does not notice him until he makes himself seen.
