Despite a lot of the play exploring the positives and the beauty of love and romance, the real lessons from the story are found in the primitive and belligerent nature of the characters. 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
The Capulet and Montague feud was not the source of Romeo and Juliet’s circumstance, but their narcissistic projection. 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.
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. In the romantic play “Romeo and Juliet”, by William Shakespeare, there are two main characters that come from families that have always hated each other. A Montague named Romeo falls in love with a Capulet named Juliet, and they instantly know that true love is shared between them. True love is an everlasting affection between lovers that have a happy and compassionate relationship.
“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. When one is in love, they can be hurt by the words, and actions of their special someone.
This shows Romeo was being very impulsive because he wouldn’t explain why he was there. Also when romeo was talking to Paris he was being very hostile towards him. 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”...Juliet is the sun”.In other words this shows that Romeo really does love Juliet for various reasons especially her looks. For instance this connoted that Romeo is very passionate and loving.another example is when romeo asked friar to “This i pray.../that thou consent to marry us today” this quote is important because it proves that he really does love juliet.this implies that romeo is actually very romantic and passionate.With all this shown it implies that romeo is very devoted for
There was no love in this relationship, but rather idiocy and lust and maybe even the want for love, but no actual love. 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.
Does the story of “Romeo and Juliet” show love is stronger, or hate is stronger? Which side do you choose? In Romeo and Juliet there 's a lot of love and hate. Romeo and Juliet fall in love with each other and eventually get married. The only flaw with this relationship is the fact that their families have a lot of enmity towards each other.
But for Romeo and Juliet, their love for each other was distinctive from others. Nevertheless the love of Romeo and Juliet was true love. Since Romeo and Juliet’s love was forbidden by their family’s, Capulets and Montagues, it made their love stronger. If someone is told they are not aloud something or someone it makes them want it even more. Another thing to remember is Romeo and Juliet were willing to go against their family’s wishes.
This shows that this is not like the love that Romeo had for Rosalind which seemed to be a silly crush. That disappeared once he saw Juliet. In my opinion Romeo and Juliet’s love is not real. Romeo was just lusting after Juliet because he could not get Rosalind and Juliet was easier to get. Shakespeare uses a lot of religious imagery in this
