First, Juliet disobeyed her parents when they wanted her to marry Romeo. Following this, she decided to pretend to die leave her family to have a life with Romeo. In the end, Juliet did kill herself after she found Romeo dead, which shows a more significant loyalty to him instead of her family. This goes against the typical bond of loyalty between a family and accentuates the love between Romeo and Juliet. It shows the power of true love, and how it can shift one’s loyalty, even between one’s own family.
Margaret Wolfe Hungerford once said, “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. The meaning of this quote is that beauty exists only in the mind of the person that contemplates it. This correlates with the beginning of the love shared by the main characters in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. Born from opposing families, Romeo and Juliet fall in love, but cannot be together because of their family feud. Their love begins from the moment they meet, and just upon looking at each other, they instantly fall in love.
Romeo and Juliet fell in love and got married because of Romeo, knowing that their families would not accept the relationship, and that it may fuel the feud. In fact, deaths were caused by such unwise decisions taken by Romeo. There are many examples throughout the William Shakespeare 's tragedy Romeo and Juliet that illustrate the point that Romeo 's unwise choices lead to the six deaths in the play. Romeo is feeling melancholic because he is in love with a chist. He refuses to get over the one way relationship, so his cousin Benvolio helps him think through his thoughts.
Homer’s Odyssey sends a powerful message detailing the power a married man or women can have. Homer writes, "There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends." (Murray, Homer, Odyssey 6.175-185). In Amours, Ovid describes love as a forum for his poems, displaying the importance of affection. In Book I of the Elegy, Ovid is writing about touches on warmth, “Love come late will not fill your song” (Kline, Ovid, Amores 1.7:1-26).
Romeo knows Juliet is from the Capulet family, his only “enemy,” and yet he is still devoted to her. Another example of loyalty being portrayed in Romeo and Juliet is when Juliet finds out that her husband, Romeo, has killed her cousin Tybalt. At first she is angry with Romeo but remembers that he is her husband and decides to stay loyal to him even when it seems she shouldn’t. She proves her loyalty to him by saying to the nurse “He was not born to shame. Upon his brow shame is ashamed to sit, For ’tis a throne where honor may be crowned.
In each story we find two young people who are in love, sadly though, both loves have been forbad. Our main point here is the divider which separates the lovers. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare writes, “from ancient grudge break to new mutiny” (1.1.2). Then in “Pyramus and Thisbe” Ovid writes “They longed to marry, but their parents forbade.” (947). Now that the divider has been brought to attention, we must also know that when love is restrained, it finds a way to come through.
The play, Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare consists of two teenage, star-crossed lovers, who fell in love and put their emotions over everything. Considering the rivalry between their families they thought it better to keep their relationship a secret. Within less than a week of knowing one another, they both ended their lives, which resulted in the demolishment of their family’s’ rivalry. Could Romeo and Juliet truly have fallen in love, or perhaps in lust? Even though it can be seen that Romeo and Juliet could not live without each other, lust definitely leads to fatal disasters.
It was the beginning of the end from the moment Romeo and Juliet laid eyes on each other. In the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, the two teens were deeply in love, although their families were in a feud that would normally forbid members of the opposing families to be together. Romeo and Juliet ignored this unwritten rule, and eventually caused them both to have premature deaths. Throughout the entire story, light was shown both in the presence of Juliet as a sense of beauty, and also seen as a sense of bad or an ending of a happy occurrence. It was a representation of their relationship, having some great moments and other unpleasant ones.
Another topic I will be covering is love at first sight. Romeo and Juliet went to Friar Lawrence for advice during their difficult moments. In the beginning of the story, Romeo thinks he’s in love with Rosaline. As she does not return his affections, Benvolio tells him that he should forget her and find another woman but Romeo doesn’t budge. While this is happening, Pairs is wanting to marry Juliet so he invites her to a Capulet ball where Rosaline is also attending.
This meant if Gatsby really loved her, he must make something out of himself before he could pursue her once again. He of course did and was able to rekindle his relationship with Daisy. They actually loved each other once again and had plans of running away together. Eventually the day came where Gatsby told her to explain to her husband that she did not ever love him but she cried out, “Oh you want to much... I loved you now isn’t that enough?
