Whether the Friar realizes it or not, he has just done something terrible that only strengthens the bond of these two lovers. This leads to several deaths along the way. This bond between Romeo and Juliet, fortified by Friar Lawrence and his hubris, causes a serious issue when Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, challenges Romeo to a duel. Romeo refuses to fight as they are now family by marriage and says, “… But love thee better than thou
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.
Romeo only marries Juliet to get over Rosaline. In fact, the only reason he goes to the party where he meets Juliet is because he thinks that Rosaline might be there. This quote from shows that Romeo is still in love with Rosaline the day he meets Juliet. Romeo says, “Bid a sick man in sadness make his will. / Ah, word ill urged to one that is so ill!
When someone takes their own life there must be a reason, right? In Romeo and Juliet, a famous tragedy written by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet fall deeply in love with one another, even though their families have been sworn enemies for ages. While everything seems to be going alright at the beginning of the play, at the end of the play both, Romeo and Juliet, end up killing themselves. Even though Romeo and Juliet took their own lives, their deaths are ultimately caused by Friar Lawrence, because his small actions, at the time, had a huge impact on the lives of Romeo and Juliet. The marriage of Romeo and Juliet, overseen by Friar Lawrence, was the first of many mistakes Friar made.
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
The dual suicides from both the lovers portray the ultimate expression of their undying love for each other. Only through death may each be happily reunited and maintain the extensive bond between them. The clash between love versus hate is especially represented during Romeo and Juliets first meeting. Once Juliet learns of Romeos lineage, she says, my only love sprung from my only hate (I, v, 139). This shows her families hate brought about her love; the two opposing forces are vital to each other and are ever so knotted.
/ Too early seen unknown , and known too late! / Prodigious birth of love it is to me, / That I must love a loathèd enemy.” (1.5.136-139). Juliet and Romeo got along really well and have fallen in love. However, they are from opposing families and are supposed to hate each other. Even though they are presumed to be enemies, Romeo and Juliet still loved each other regardless of their family name.
As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Signifying that the one way to conquer hatred is with more and more love. In William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet , this theme is presented, in which two young teenagers fall in forbidden love and decide that their lives have no worth without each other. With the rivalry between the two houses, the Capulets, and the Montagues, the two lovers transform their hatred and the family's hatred for each other into love. Through producing love from hate between the Capulets and Montagues and creating love between Romeo and Juliet and Romeo and Rosaline, Shakespeare suggests love is the more powerful emotion and that love is worth dying for. With love
Around 1594 Shakespeare wrote the romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet. This story has an intricate plot line; the two lovers prevail from rivaling families, after falling in love they marry and intend to run away to live together. From thereafter a series of actions taken by a number of the characters leads to their deaths. Despite the Nurse helping Juliet on numerous occasions, Friar Lawrence was at fault because he didn’t succeed in telling Romeo about the details of Juliet’s plan, created the plans that causes their deaths, and married the couple. To commence, the Nurse can be argued to be the one to blame for the death of the pair due to the numerous occasions she helps Juliet’s in her schemes to meet Romeo.
Although both of them grew up being taught to hate one another, the night they first met they fell madly in love. The fact that they fell in love despite their families teaching them to hate each other proves once again, that conflicts of that matter can only end destructively. Although both Romeo and Juliet knew their last names weren’t of much importance they still had their doubts of whether they should continue their love. This is depicted in the quote “My only love sprung from my only hate…” This quote shows how Juliet feels upon learning that her only love is the son of the people she’s been taught to hate her whole
By allowing Romeo’s persuasive words and undying passion for Juliet to persuade him to go along with the wedding, he put them both in a risky situation which led to their demise. Even though both Romeo and Friar hoped for a happy ending with the Montagues and Capulets, it did not end up that way. Despite their good intentions, both characters contributed to the deaths in this tragic play. All of the mistakes made prove enemies can never be
Romeo and Juliet fell in love within mere seconds, without contemplating the consequences the love may cause.
