Ultimately, the story of Romeo and Juliet teaches us about the most quarrelsome, primal instincts of the human nature, and how not avoiding them can lead to a tragic end. Romeo and Juliet’s families, as mentioned previously, both have an extreme hatred for each other. Even at the beginning of the play, Tybalt and
Their love brought them temporary pleasure; however, that same love caused their permanent end. Romeo is the main factor behind the demise of Juliet and himself. Romeo is introduced as a passive man who deeply longs for romance. He is a slave to passion and romance and is obsessed with obtaining it with whoever is willing to reciprocate. Romeo is in deep depression because of unrequited love for Rosalind, “This love feel I, that feel no love in this” (1.1.182).
As regular human beings, we feel the primal sensibility of finding true love. But finding true love might be very difficult because of the chance of an infatuation.

“Loving can hurt sometimes,” Ed Sheeran said, and this is no lie when it comes to Twelfth Night. Love is often an inevitable struggle in a plot, but in this Shakespearean play, a complete love triangle dominates as the main conflict. It cause happiness, excitement, deception, or even insanity, we still can’t seem to figure out if the benefits outweigh the consequences. Throughout Twelfth Night Shakespeare demonstrates love as a cause of suffering, a ‘knot that cannot be untied’ with Olivia’s love, Viola’s disguise, and Malvolio’s fake letter. Lady Olivia’s initial suffering contributes to the cause of this complex knot.
John Ruskin once said, “It is better to lose your pride with someone you love than to lose that someone you love with your useless pride.” Similarly, in Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare also suggests that the biggest barrier between romantic love is pride. He asserts, this by telling the readers that love is a far more authentic feeling than pride, and that love can only grow if an individual is able to set aside their pride and allow themselves to be both vulnerable and receptive to authentic feelings. The first thing that is emphasized in the play, Much Ado About Nothing is the vulnerability and dangers of love. It’s shown that falling in love is a constant danger, and that no one gets out of the ordeal unharmed.

Overall everybody can agree that romeo was being impulsive and impetuous. One of Romeo’s most interesting traits is being romantic, this can be seen when Romeo says”...
All throughout the play Romeo claims he was in love with someone first Rosaline and then all of a sudden Juliet, if Romeo was to truly love either of these ladies he would not have been able to switch between them so quickly, who’s to say Juliet wasn’t just a rebound? Friar Lawrence said “ Young men feel with their eyes, not their hearts” and while this may not be true in all cases, it is very true in this case. As soon as Romeo layed eyes on Juliet he fell in “love” with her which is completely unrealistic. Romeo didn’t know a single thing about her, even as little as her own name. The same goes for Juliet, the two knew nothing about the other but yet felt as if they were in love and should get married.

In this passage, Shakespeare utilizes metaphor and negative diction to characterize Romeo as a person who is conflicted and frustrated by love, which ultimately reveals the theme that love is uncontrollable, conflicting, and short-lived. Towards the end of act 1 scene 1, Romeo still has a big crush on Rosaline, but Rosaline has no feelings for him. Hence, Romeo experienced a sense of depression and is conflicted by love. In this passage, Shakespeare uses numerous metaphors. “Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs.”
In the play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, the two teenage lovers fell for each other, however, Romeo’s flaw led to their death. Romeo’s flaw was his impulsiveness and urge to jump to conclusions. He acted upon himself to commit suicide rather than letting fate take its path to eventually lead them to be future lovers. Furthermore, Romeo had a big impact on their deaths because of his way of believing he would be able to fix the problem rather than putting it in fates hands. He acts on emotion instead of reason.
Fake Love There is a difference between love and infatuation. In the Play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo claims Juliet is the woman he is helplessly in love with and is destined to be with. Although he may think that he loves her, his desire is captivated by her looks. Throughout the play, it becomes more obvious through Romeo's words, history, and knowledge that he does not know the loyalty of love. “Young men’s love then lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (Act 2, Scene 3, Lines 67-68)
Why is someone’s identity important? Perhaps because who someone is can help determine his or her destiny. People with different characteristics, actions, and backgrounds often have different futures. Consider Romeo Montague, for instance.
