“I certainly don’t believe in love at first sight. I definitely believe in a lot of chemistry and lust at first sight. I believe that love is something that takes work.” - Amanda Peet, American Actress (azquotes.com) With this quote Amanda Peet is telling us that people don’t really fall in love at first sight, they are falling into lust. Romeo and Juliet were two of the many victims of lust. They fell in love with looks, not the heart. In Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, the two main characters are not really in love because they are quiet about their love, they are immature, and they are strangers.
William Shakespeare warns that love is closely followed by violence, and death, through the events of Romeo and Juliet 's sexual experience, and their death.

Shakespeare’s theme about Romeo and Juliet is love. The message about love is that it is complicated. It is shown by Romeo trying to be with Rosaline and Juliet.
“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)

When you know something about someone it can make you change the way you think about them. If you don’t know it you could accidentally hurt someone you care about. The same is true for the play Romeo and Juliet. In the play Shakespeare uses dramatic irony to both drive the play forward and to present a message or theme. A few examples of these are when we know who Romeo and Juliet's parents are when they meet but they don’t, when the audience knows about the marriage but no one else does, and when we know Juliet is faking her death but no one else does.
*One of the most iconic love stories ever written has many different love types throughout the story. Shakespeare’s “Romeo And Juliet” has examples of Unrequited love, Romantic love, parental love, Friendship, and Love of Family Honor. Two very prominent love types shown in this story are Unrequited love, and Romantic love. These two love types have similarities and differences, and will be expanded on after examples are shown. The story of “Romeo And Juliet” has many love types.
Although Romeo and Juliet is a story of love, it is clear that there is much more hate in the story than love. For example, when Tybalt kills Mercutio Romeo is angry and kills Tybalt because he is filled with hatred. The reason that they even fight is because of a old dispute between the two families. This dispute is the cause of many fights between the two families. This long time dispute is caused by a mutual hate between the two families and is why hate is stronger than love in this story.
“O Romeo, Romeo, wherefor art thou Romeo? 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.” In their eyes, as well as many others, love comes above all else. Two forbidden lovers do whatever they can to be together. Even if it means killing others and themselves. And with all the obstacles they go through, they can never be happy together. In the novel Romeo and Juliet, author William Shakespeare implies the idea that people will do anything for love even if it could end badly. They take insane risks for it; this becomes clear to readers when Romeo and Juliet kill themselves so they wouldn’t have to live without the other. Additionally people who aren’t necessarily in love themselves try to keeps others love unharmed, perfect, and save it.
Romeo and Juliet say that they are in love and that they love each other. But they are actually in lust. Love is an emotion of strong attraction and personal attachment to someone. Lust is a very strong physical desire for someone. Lust is when all you really care about that person is a physical desire and only a physical desire. I believe that love at first sight isn’t real. It takes time to fall in love with someone. You have to get to know them before you actually fall in love. Love at first sight is actually just lust at first sight. It’s your want for that person that makes you think that it is love.
William Shakespeare is known for his tragic plays, which includes the highly talked about Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet follows two star crossed lovers who are forbidden to love one another, due to an ancient grudge between their families. The two families still have a strong hatred for each other due to stubbornness , which causes the love between Romeo and Juliet to be forbidden. This forbidden love between the two causes them to act impulsively and ultimately leads to their deaths. However, they are not to be held responsible for these impulsive actions, the obstinacy of the all the family members is.
Death is one of the central components of the play, Romeo and Juliet, other than love. All the characters in the play must suffer through it. After evaluating the play, Romeo’s the character that should be the most to blame for the tragedies. His reckless behavior causes much of the turmoil. He even made a successful suicidal attempt, and unknowingly inspired Juliet to ensure the same afterward. His brashness, impatience, and his disregard to logical thinking are a recipe for disaster, despite his undying love for Juliet, the daughter of his family’s enemies. Romeo secretly finds a way that not only allows the beginning of a wonderful relationship, nonetheless also a short lived one with the scent of death
William Shakespeare uses a variety of literary devices to show the meaning and significance of the certain actions and thoughts during the plot of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet are two lovers that come from families that induce hatred and hostility towards each other. The feud eventually leads to death of family and friends, which results in banishment for the love struck Romeo. In Juliet's distress, pretends to be dead with the help of Friar Lawrence. Romeo's belief that his love has perished, decides to suicide inevitably causing Juliet to do the same when she sees her dead partner after awakening. Shakespeare uses personification, metaphor, and repetition to reveal that love and happiness do not prevail in the presence
The two most powerful emotions of William shakespeare’s playwright of “Romeo and Juliet” are love and hate. The two star crossed lovers have to overcome hate in the entire play. Unfortunately both couldn’t handle the pain so they committed suicide. Many people would disagree with me and say love is stronger than hate, but in this case it has to be hate is stronger than love. It is evident that hate is stronger than love ,because if the families were not fighting none of this would of happened. and Romeo and Juliet would lived happy ever after.
