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.
She speaks, she claims, and she thinks but is it true. There is love at first sight but is it true love? Sure Romeo and Juliet would die for each other but that doesn’t prove true love. Romeo was obsessed with Rosaline until the Capulet’s Ball. The only thing that attracted Romeo to Juliet was her beauty.
One example of Romeo being impulsive is when he first meets Juliet. When Romeo first saw Juliet at the Capulet party, he immediately fell head over heels for her. Romeo says to a servant,” Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night”(I.v.44-45).
The marriage of Romeo and Juliet, overseen by Friar Lawrence, was the first of many mistakes Friar made. He married Romeo and Juliet for all the wrong reasons. When Romeo first came to Friar and told him that he had found someone else to love, Friar did not think that they should be together. He immediately scolded Romeo for getting over Rosaline to quickly and said that Romeo only loved Juliet for her beauty. “Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here!
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
The Friar said to Romeo, “Go wisely and slowly. Those who rush stumble and fall.” After seeing how madly in love Romeo is with Juliet, the Friar agrees to secretly marry the two lovers in hopes that their matrimony will turn their families’ hatred into love. However, the Friar still thinks that Romeo is rushing into love with Juliet. In both Presley’s song and Shakespeare’s play, two people are deeply in love with each other but their love is considered a “sin.” Romeo would dedicate “Can’t help falling in love” by Elvis Presley to
For swear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty until this night” (1.5.50-51). This displays how blindly Romeo fell in love with Juliet—even knowing she was a Capulet. He only liked her for her appearance rather than truly getting to know her. “And for that offense immediately we exile him hence” (3.1.179-180).
Romeo describes this feeling of love at first sight when he says, “Oh, she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night. Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear, Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear” (Rom.1.5.42-45). Many of Romeo’s problems originate at the Capulet party because this is where he meets Juliet and is spotted by Tybalt, an enemy. Romeo and Juliet meeting at the party is only the start of a tragic ending, which ultimately ends in both of their
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.
In Shakespeare 's acclaimed romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, the death of the two main characters can be attributed to two things. Their love for each other, and the social expectations of their time. A love so powerful, yet unthinkable sustains irrational thinking and impulsive actions, and results in the suicides of Juliet and Romeo. Social expectations of their time only add fuel to the flames, in that it gives them cause to kill themselves and pressures them into it. The tragic death of the two lovers Romeo and Juliet could be the fault of their love for one another.
