/ Ah, word ill urged to one that is so ill! / In sadness, cousin, I do love a woman.”(1.1.197-199) Romeo only marries Juliet to ease the pain of heartbreak from Rosaline. Juliet isn’t in love with Romeo either. Just before Juliet meets Romeo for the first time she says she is not ready to be married. Her mother says, “LADY CAPULET: Marry, that 'marry ' is the very theme / I came to talk of.
He then performs the marriage of Romeo and Juliet and even fabricates a foolish plan to keep them together when Juliet is forced to marry Paris. He also leaves Juliet alone in the tomb after she awakens to find her beloved Romeo dead. Friar Lawrence is a moral man, but his hubris leads to the death of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo considers the Friar someone he can confide in, and he tells the Friar of his newfound love for Juliet. The Friar’s excessive pride allows him to agree to wed Romeo and Juliet, hoping he can bring the Montagues and Capulets together, though these families hatred spans generations.
The most defiant choice that Romeo and Juliet take for their love is their choice to be married. Juliet knows that her father or anyone in her family would not approve of this choice, but she still does it cause she loves Romeo. This love struck mentality drives Romeo and Juliet to be married and this secret marriage causes turmoil when Lord Capulet demands Juliet to marry Paris. Although Juliet knows that she is already married to Romeo loyal to him, not Paris and refuses to marry “doth Paris” (Shakespeare.III.v.145). Juliet only loves Romeo so this drives her to go to Friar Laurence whereupon attempted suicide he prescribes a potion that will make her appear dead.
“Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here! Is Rosaline, whom thou didst love so dear, So soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (Shakespeare 2.3.65-68). After telling Friar about Juliet, Romeo said that he wanted Friar to marry them, but Friar was hesitant. Friar thought that Romeo did not love Juliet and was rushing into this to quickly.
How much can you compromise for love? Would you risk as much as Romeo and Juliet? The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare, is a play about a girl and a boy that were forbidden to love each other because they came from rivaling families. The play begins with Romeo lovesick for another girl, Rosaline, but his friends bribe him to go to the Capulet feast and there he saw Juliet. He forgot about Rosaline and falls in love with Juliet.
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.
During Juliet’s conversation with Lady Capulet regarding the death of Tybalt, Capulet walks in to share news of Juliet's suitor, Paris. While Juliet appreciates the gesture of her father find a potential husband, she politely declines due to her relationship with Romeo. Capulet is outraged and disowns Juliet for apparent stubbornness, but Juliet attempts to justify her decision: “Proud can I never be of what I hate, but thankful even for hate that is meant love” (3.5.152-153). Juliet explains that she dreads the idea of Capulet arranging for Paris to marry her, secretly due to her complications with Romeo, but loves that same idea because she understands that her father’s intentions were only of care. Juliet is able to be empathetic to her father’s temporary anger since she knew it is only a result of his deep love and support.
In a romantic comedy, two people will fall in love at first sight, with everything working out at the end. However, this is not possible in a tragedy. The tragedy Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare tells the tale of a couple’s forbidden love and how it leads to many consequences, which are caused by impulsive decisions. One consequence is the couple having to hide their love from their families and friends. Another is the deaths of Mercutio and Tybalt.
In the beginning we saw Romeo in love with Rosaline and Shakespeare intentionally added that aspect of Romeos life in the beginning so we could see how easily he could “fall in love” with a new girl. This goes to show how we should not trust anything of what Romeo says he feels but Juliet falls on his every word because it is the better alternative to marrying Paris. Both Romeo and Juliet had acted impulsively with their feelings and selfishly with how they acted on them. They knew that their being together would be a hardship on themselves end others but they selfishly continued without thinking about the toll it would bring to the community. They planned to run away from the rest of the world and Juliet pretended to be dead only later for both of them to kill themselves.
Unfortunately, this marriage is driven by ulterior motives. The following paragraphs will demonstrate that Romeo and Juliet want to get married for very different reasons, as evidenced by their fantasies of escapism. First of all, Juliet supports the marriage because she does not want to marry Paris. This is demonstrated when Juliet says she does not want to marry Paris before she meets Romeo. In the beginning of the play Lady Capulet asks Juliet if she would like to
Ever since they laid eye’s on one another, Romeo and Juliet continuously formulate careless decisions, such as determining to get married. Romeo and Juliet make the rash decision on “Thy purpose marriage,” and Romeo must “send [Juliet] word tomorrow,” (2.2.149). During the couples discreet encounter, Juliet audaciously agrees to send someone at nine o’clock the next day to discuss marital arrangements with Romeo. This lackadaisical decision to marry one another express the recklessness behind the young romance. Young love causes people to devise imprudent decisions without pondering the ramifications it may
Upon seeing Juliet for the first time, he fell completely in love with her. Within his first conversation with Juliet, he confessed his love for her by saying, “I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”(Romeo & Juliet. 1.5.51). He then goes on to propose the idea of marriage, and, later in the play, marries her. The fact that Romeo fails to comply with the rule that a Montague and Capulet cannot marry shows his impulsivity.
From first sight Romeo wants to marry Juliet and he doesn 't even know her. But, Juliet also wants to marry him when she first seen Romeo. Juliet is careful though, more than Romeo. After Romeo’s wedding he’s all happy. But, Tybalt and Mercutio were playing around a little too much.
They would back their statement with how Romeo would do anything for Juliet. While that may be true considering that he died to be with her, that evidence is not strong enough to prove that he was in love with Juliet. The only reason he is with Juliet is because she was the one that returned his love. Here is an example of how Romeo knows only infatuation and not love. At the Capulet ball, he said, “Did my heart love till now?
Also, right when he was still sad about Rosaline he became blinded with love when he saw Juliet. So, Romeo just threw Rosaline out of his mind and went to a girl he just met. Romeo was so blinded with love that he kissed Juliet who 's a Capulet. After the party Romeo decided that him and Juliet wants to
