“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.” (2.2.140-142) Throughout the tale of Romeo and Juliet, loyalty is shown in different ways.

According to Derek Landy, a famous irish author and screenwriter, “ Violence is never the answer, until it’s the only answer.” This message stays true in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. In this dreamful play, there are two passionate lovers. On one hand there is Romeo, belonging to the Montague family, and on the other hand there is Juliet, belonging to the Capulet family. Unfortunately, for Romeo and Juliet, their families have been fighting in a never ending feud against each other.
In William Shakespeare’s timeless play Romeo and Juliet, two star crossed lovers are faced with great adversity as they hide their romance from their feuding families. As author James Lane Allen once said, “Adversity does not build character, it reveals it”. Romeo, a Montague, struggles to hide his love for the Capulet daughter, Juliet, from his family and friends. The challenge of lying to his closest companions, and going against his family’s ways to secretly marry Juliet causes Romeo to act erratically and carelessly. Throughout Act 3 Scene One, Shakespeare exposes the lovestruck Romeo’s mercurial nature and impulsivity through his thoughtless actions.
Both romeo and juliet believed that they could not live without one another so when romeo mistakenly thought juliet died, he killed himself which led to the death of juliet. Throughout the story, the recurring problem of the rising tensions between the two families always makes things harder and harder for romeo and juliet. Both romeo and juliet hate being montagues and capulets, and it is very clear and easy to see this because it is shown during the story when Juliet says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.’’
Romeo and Juliet made many sacrifices to be with each other. The decisions and sacrifices made every day in life can either be worth the sacrifice or lead to an individual’s demise, as well as the demise of others around them. Romeo had made sacrifices throughout the story that has taken their toll on the people around him. One thing he sacrificed was his relationship with the Capulets. Their families were already feuding, but Romeo got caught up in the tension and made things worse.
Act 2 scene 2 line 70 “ If they see you they’ll murder you”. This shows that because they fight so much they will murder him. This forces them to be secretive and not tell anyone therefore leading to more pressure on Juliet to not marry Paris. “three times now riots have broken out in this city all casual word from you old capulet and Montague” Act 1 scene 1 line 83-86. This shows that they fight with each other so much and this makes it hard for Romeo and Juliet to make their marriage public so they must keep it a secret since the families are mortal foes.
Violence Stems from Animosity Brutal violence and impulsivity are used in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare to demonstrate how violence can quickly arise from animosity and how the characters using violence should be held accountable for their actions, even if they were impulsive. Shakespeare’s famous work Romeo and Juliet contains brutal violence with the purpose of portraying how brutal violence stems from prejudice. Sampson, a Capulet servant, says, “'Tis all one, I will show myself a tyrant: when I / have fought with the men, I will be cruel with the / maids, and cut off their heads” (1.1.19-21). Sampson and Gregory use violence against Balthasar and Abraham, fighting in a quarrel that isn’t theirs, but their masters.
Romeo agrees to go and sees Juliet, Lord Capulet’s daughter and falls in love instantly with “her true beauty” (Shakespeare. I.v.51) and pulls her into the other room where they kiss. This meeting results in a prolonged love affair which springs a whole event of scandal including Juliet’s push back to marry Paris, but ultimately it results in Romeo and Juliet’s
Romeo and Juliet is a well-known play written by William Shakespeare. Even though it is famous for being a love story, Shakespeare demonstrates that rebellion is closely tied together either it through the characters: Juliet, Romeo and Tybalt. By defying their families, authority and society's expectations, they set in motion the events in this tragedy. Romeo’s rebellion against society's expectations and his own family, the Montagues, is because of his love. His love of Rosaline is his first demonstration of defiance.
In many high schools, 9th graders read stories from different times and of different genres in their english classes. Notably, one of the most prominent stories read by high schoolers is The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. However, there is controversy that high schoolers should not read this Shakespearean play because many argue that it is not relevant to what teens deal with on a daily basis. Despite the fact that the tragedy takes place in the 14th century, teens were no different back then. As a matter of fact, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet presents topics that present-day teens still struggle with such as brain development, tunnel vision, and how to correctly approach suicidal teens.
In the play Romeo and Juliet hate is a major role in the story/play. The hate revolves around the hatred between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s. Hatred is shown throughout Romeo and Juliet as shown by peoples’ acts of violence. The story does not reveal why the hatred began, only that it was an ongoing conflict between the two families.
Romeo and Juliet represents two families of similar social economic status and wealth but are in an interpersonal conflict between a flourishing love and a gory family feud. Juliet immensely changes during the course of the movie from a young girl to a mature young lady because she must deal with a forced marriage, abusive parents, and the banishment of Romeo. However, Romeo is a flat character focusing more on love than understanding the seriousness of the feud. When the two beloved children die, the dynamic changes as both families have empathy towards each other, therefore peace emerges from the tragic loss. Romeo and Juliet, the star-crossed lovers are very relatable and that is why we still read and watch his play four-hundred years
In my opinion I think that the feud between the two main families, the Capulets and the Montagues, is the most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death. The conflict between these two families is so distasteful that it causes Romeo and Juliet even more of a struggle as they try to find and keep their love. This conflict between the Capulets and the Montagues has been going on for a very long time and neither side is willing to make up for whatever may have happened in the past. Because of this a strong dislike is portrayed when someone sees a person from the opposite side. If the family feud wouldn’t have existed Romeo and Juliet would not have any large reason to hide their relationship.
