As their love began with simply being attracted to one another; it mutated into something so intense, that it would later destroy themselves and others in the process. Romeo & Juliet articulates the potency of love and how it is able cause destruction to everyone. Their bond depicts intimate love for each other, but in the end, it seemed like it was doomed from the very start. Separation was the key factor where love was evoked in Romeo & Juliet. Scenes in the play were able to
The definition is concise, but probably not very clear. It’s not easy to define what “absolute perfection” is, especially because of the free will. The passion between Romeo and Juliet is misinterpreted by the two young lovers as love. And all the readers in all these centuries have been interpreting a dramatic idea of love not based on reality but on impulsive feelings as “The ideal Love” . Romeo’s longing for ideal love is the primary driving force behind most of his actions, that reveal themselves as impulsive and stupid.
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.
Is love stronger than hate or is hate stronger than love in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet? My claim is that love is Stronger than hate. In this essay I will explain why love is stronger than hate and these are some of the reasons why. Even though there is much hate in Romeo and Juliet love still shines through and cancels out the hate. For example out of love for their now dead kids the montagues and capulets come to an agreement and end their feud.
The comedy wanders around the difficulties and ironies of love as it provides a very accurate description of a relatively common situation that many people experience. Shakespeare excelled in delivering a piece that is comedic, relatable and unpredictable in its essence. As I progress through this essay, I will analyze one of its’ major themes, which is the controversy of love and how it involves some of the characters in the story. Love is often called the most beautiful sentiment a human can ever feel, yet, very often it can cause so much pain and despair, causing it to be very controversial and
An examination of Romeo and Juliet reveals that a person’s fate is not decided at birth and can be changed based on their decisions. Romeo and Juliet proves people occasionally need to be told the truth to understand the problems and chaos they’re causing. The Capulets and Montagues had been archenemies for a long time and possibly don’t even remember why; all they know is that they hate the other family. Juliet has discovered who she has fallen in love with, “My only love sprung from my only hate! / Too early seen unknown , and known too late!
Romeo and Juliet only had to glance at each other and it was love at first sight. Although they loved their families and knew what they felt for each other and what they were doing was wrong, they still continued. This is to say that they had an urge, an uncontrollable lust and love for each other that is above anything else. At the end of the story, it is again proven that their love is the most powerful one because they were prepared to die together rather than live
The feud ends with numerous deaths including Romeo, Mercutio, Paris, Juliet, and Tybalt. Many of whom had nothing to do with the feud, but ended up in those situations because of the hate their parents instilled into their minds at such an early age. Of the many deaths in the play Mercutio’s was one of the most significant. His death occurred because he insisted on challenging Tybalt, who was looking for Romeo. Although his death may seem uneventful it is essential to the point that conflicts among families and friends only end tragically.
For many people is hard to find someone you can love, trust and have success at the same time. Othello was able to find success and love in Desdemona. But sometimes there's always some way that wishes that they could be you; jealous enough to be willingly do anything, from pulling everyone around you down mentally; may be even as far as killing someone, fortunately people like that never make it to the top. Is Shakespeare's Othello many believe the play is about trust and deception, in my opinion jealousy is the biggest role in this play. Iago is jealous of all colors so says in love with Desdemona.
Romeo’s love for Juliet has grown strong, illustrated when he says, “But my true love is grown to such excess / I cannot sum up some of half my wealth” (3.1.33–34). Romeo's banishment and inability to see Juliet is Romeo's worst fear come true. “Calling death ‘banished,’ / Thou cutt’st my head off with a golden ax / And smilest upon the stroke that murders me” is a metaphor comparing banishment with death by a golden ax, used to display how dreadful Romeo’s punishment is to him, a theme heavily emphasized (Shakespeare III.iii. 22-24). Being apart from Juliet is a miserable life for Romeo, especially when he is the only one unable to see her.
