Are Romeo’s and Juliet 's death is because of their free will or of their fate? Romeo and Juliet by the famous William Shakespeare is a tragic and romantic play that teaches us about how the characters interact to one another knowing that they can 't be together. Romeo is a high social class from the Montagues family and her lovely Juliet is from the Capulet family. Since there is a hate between these families, they live in two different cities making their love much more difficult. As Romeo and Juliet meet at the beginning of the play both characters had never felt the love they felt as of that moment.
I don’t tell the truth, I tell what ought to be truth. And if that is sinful, then let me be damned for it!” Blanches magic is seen through her illusions and delusions. In Blanches world Mitch doesn’t fit however she has reached a point of intimacy by being honest about her first husband and the guilt she endures as she begins to share the painful moment of her life with him. Stanley’s intrusion ruins her plans of marriage with Mitch and yet again she had to retreat in the world of her delusions. Stanley who represents realism in this novel and play pops Blanche’s illusion bubble through seeing the realism in scene ten he says: “not once did you pull any wool over this boy’s eyes!” Not only Stanley had broken her world of illusion, but also Mitch who is influenced by Stanley and destroys the protection of darkness by exposing her to the bright light.
Their relationship shows a depiction of a romantic crush because both Juliet and Romeo are deeply in love with each other, showing that “Because a romantic crush is a potent mix of idealization and infatuation, it does not require knowing another person well at all” (Pickhardt). Pickhardt’s assertion that romantic crushes do not require prior knowlege of each other connects with the way Romeo and Juliet did not know each other for very long. The Capulets and Montagues’ cause the death of their children because of their constant fighting, and lack of attention given to their kids. Romeo’s parents do not bother helping him after his breakup with Rosaline, and instead send Benvolio to cheer him up, while Juliet’s father forces her to marry, when she has no interest in doing so. Both of these actions performed by the parents show how neglectful and careless they are to their own children, and how their lack of responsibility lead to a horrific
Each and every day, people make sacrifices for their loved ones. Maybe they choose to get up earlier in order to do chores or miss an important meeting so that they would have time for each other. There is no greater example of sacrifices for loved ones than in Romeo and Juliet however, where Shakespeare explores two star-crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, who come from two families that have a deep hatred towards each other. The pair meet each other, secretly wed, and then in order to stay together, commit suicide out of despair and distress. Through Romeo and Juliet’s acts of defiance and sacrifice, Shakespeare proves that while hate has the power to destroy and kill, love is even more powerful as it has the power to transform.
An examination of Romeo and Juliet reveals that a person’s fate is not decided at birth and can be changed based on their decisions. Romeo and Juliet proves people occasionally need to be told the truth to understand the problems and chaos they’re causing. The Capulets and Montagues had been archenemies for a long time and possibly don’t even remember why; all they know is that they hate the other family. Juliet has discovered who she has fallen in love with, “My only love sprung from my only hate! / Too early seen unknown , and known too late!
/ Ah, word ill urged to one that is so ill! / In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman.”(1.1.197-199) Romeo only marries Juliet to ease the pain of heartbreak from Rosaline. Juliet isn’t in love with Romeo either. Just before Juliet meets Romeo for the first time she says she is not ready to be married. Her mother says, “LADY CAPULET: Marry, that 'marry ' is the very theme / I came to talk of.
The two main characters, Romeo and Juliet, are from different sides of the feud, but suddenly fall in love. They both know how wrong it is and Juliet even mentions that when she says “My only love, sprung from my only hate!” (ll.prologue.144). Even though they know it’s wrong, they decide to get married secretly. They both go against their parents rules and get married with only a couple of people
“For never was a story of more woe / Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” (Shakespeare V.iii.569-570). How did the decisions and mindsets of the characters lead to such a tragic ending? Hence, Romeo and Juliet, the classic play about two star-crossed lovers from feuding families, written by William Shakespeare, illustrates how the consequences of our actions can often be far worse than imagined. The play opens as they fall in love and get married, but Romeo faces exile for killing Juliet’s cousin in a fight and they both eventually commit suicide when they are not able to be together, leading their families to finally make peace. Evidently, Shakespeare argues that it is important to make decisions based on logical reasoning rather than let ourselves be influenced by strong emotions because it will allow us to truly understand the consequences, protect our loved ones, and maintain autonomy over our own lives.
The most defiant choice that Romeo and Juliet take for their love is their choice to be married. Juliet knows that her father or anyone in her family would not approve of this choice, but she still does it cause she loves Romeo. This love struck mentality drives Romeo and Juliet to be married and this secret marriage causes turmoil when Lord Capulet demands Juliet to marry Paris. Although Juliet knows that she is already married to Romeo loyal to him, not Paris and refuses to marry “doth Paris” (Shakespeare.III.v.145). Juliet only loves Romeo so this drives her to go to Friar Laurence whereupon attempted suicide he prescribes a potion that will make her appear dead.
The story of Romeo and Juliet is the story of two star crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet’s love is hidden because they are forbidden to date as they are from the two opposing houses in Verona; Capulet’s and Montague’s. Names are important in this tragedy as the reason there was so much tragedy is based on the two teenagers having to hide their love from everyone and the weight that responsibility bared on them. In this play names divide characters and define people as well as they divide the city in two based on your last name. In act 1, the hatred for the opposing families is quite clear, especially with Tybalt, who throughout the play, is the most vocal about his hatred and the clear division between the two families.
