In Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 148”, the speaker is clearly a man that is in love, but seems to think of love in a negative way. He feels that love itself is tricking him and clouding his judgment. He sees his love as far better than everyone else sees her to be. He states, “O me, what eyes hath love put in my head/ Which have no correspondence with true sight!” (1-2). This shows how the speaker thinks he is being robbed of the sight of reality.
Love at first sight is impossible because love only comes AFTER a couple knows each other for exactly who and what each other is. For example, Romeo swears to Benvolio and Friar Lawrence that he loves Rosaline, which he proves by describing her physical beauty. However, once he sees Juliet, he forgets that he ever knew Rosalline. He swears that he only loves Juliet, and that their love is real because she loves him back. How can either love the other when they know nothing about each other except what he/she looks like and how well he/she kisses?
A major factor in the smoothness of a relationship of love would be the people outside of the actual relationship. There is more then just two people the two people in love involved, because there is always someone trying to get involved in the relationship one way or another, which takes a toll on the smoothness of the course of love. When Claudio first explains his feelings of love for Hero at the beginning of the play, Benedick asks Claudio “But I hope you have no intent to turn husband, have you?” (Shakespeare 17). He doesn’t want Claudio to marry because then he will lose his best friend. Claudio now has to think about his best friend as well as his lover in making the decision of whether or not to marry.
I would tell Hamlet to acknowledge the love he had for Ophelia and make it known to her because it would have greatly diminished tension between himself and many of the other characters. I believe that he truly did love Ophelia. Hamlet confesses this when he proclaims at her funeral, “ I loved Ophelia; forty thousand brothers/ Could not with all their quantity of love/ make up my sum. What wilt thou do for her?” (V.i.236-238) The use of the comparison to the brothers enforces the genuine tone of Hamlets profession. Although Hamlet does finally voice his feelings for Ophelia, he is too late.
Mercutio: My invocation is fair and honest. In his mistress' name I conjure only but to raise up him. (2.1.27-29) Mercutio’s witty statement provides an exquisite example of dramatic irony because he and Benvolio reference Romeo’s mistress, with Rosaline in mind, and they are oblivious to the fact that Romeo now loves Juliet. Shakespeare incorporates dramatic irony at this specific point in the rising action as a discrete message to the audience that even those who remain super close to Romeo and Juliet are not aware of their secret romantic relationships. Two of Romeo’s best friends remain ou of the loop and are not informed when the love-srtricken Romeo find love and gets married.
The paradox of Romeo occurs when he sees juliet for the first time and immediately falls in love with her in sight. He uses paradox when he states that he has no way to explain or describe the way he felt when he first seen Juliet at sight. He constantly tells Benvolio how he feels about juliet and tell him how he wants to fall in love with her.In the story of Romeo and Juliet shows that a paradox could mean statement or possibly event that seems absurd. It is a meaning in real life experiences and it expresses possible health. In this story of shakespeare there are different kinds of examples in paradox and other sounds devices that could be found in many parts of the story of Romeo and Juliet.In conclusion the love story of Romeo and Juliet showed that there are many types of sound devices, Friar Lawrence was one of many to give many types of examples in the story and play of Romeo and Juliet.
Getting to know someone is essential in building a healthy relationship between two people so that no rushed decisions are made and they will not encounter trouble in the long run. In Act II Scene 3 of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is conversing with Friar about her love for Romeo. “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove, to turn your households' rancor to pure love.” The Friar does not believe that Romeo’s love for Juliet is authentic because just before, Romeo had been madly in love with Rosaline. His love is very changeable, just days before he had been in love with another woman.
He says it many times in Act Three, Scene one. He first admits that he no longer loves Ophelia, after she tries to return the letters he sent her. He replies “This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. I did love you once.” Ophelia replies that he had her convinced, to which Hamlet harshly replied, “You should not have believed me, for virtue cannot so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it. I loved you not.” (3.1).
In the play Lysander and Hermia have nothing but passionate love for each other. Lysander exclaims “Ay me! For aught that I could ever read,Could ever hear by tale or history,The course of true love never did run smooth. But either it was different in blood” (Shakespeare 1.1 135) Lysander is showing that true lovers do have troubles such as themselves. Lysander is showing his love for Hermia by watching out for their relationship.
One of the components that may have been the underlying reason for the inconvenience Ophelia wound up in toward the end of the play might be her magnificence. This is portrayed in III, I, 6-7 when Hamlet says, "/that on the off chance that you be straightforward and reasonable,/ought to concede no talk to your excellence." Her magnificence is the reason Hamlet first became hopelessly enamored with her, the reason her dad, Polonius, could control her emotions toward Hamlet. Her dad needed this control over her affection either for progression inside the court through picking up the support of the ruler, or, if one somehow happened to think all the more hopefully, maybe Polonius' objective was just to shield her from Hamlet who, he accepted,
