In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, love and hate share the same feature in that they are both senseless and mysterious. While at some points love may be the passion used to drive Romeo head over heels for Juliet, at other times hate may be the same passion used to drive Tybalt into murderous fury. Both love and hate can be at times blinding and become so compelling as an influence that everything else is frivolous and vain. Consequences may be ignored and lives may be lost in the process. Furthermore, there is a certain pollution that suffuses the city of Verona in the form of hate.
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
Whether the Friar realizes it or not, he has just done something terrible that only strengthens the bond of these two lovers. This leads to several deaths along the way. This bond between Romeo and Juliet, fortified by Friar Lawrence and his hubris, causes a serious issue when Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, challenges Romeo to a duel. Romeo refuses to fight as they are now family by marriage and says, “… But love thee better than thou
For Act 3 Scene 1, he uses the conflict man vs man, man vs self and man vs society. Mercutio vs Tybalt and Romeo and Benvolio as the other antagonists, Romeo vs Tybalt and Benvolio as the other antagonist and Romeo vs self. Shakespeare makes a dramatic change from act 2 to act 3. From hope for these two star crossed lovers to Romeo stuck between the family feuds. The temper, anger and sudden violence between Tybalt and Mercutio is surprising and is a drastic jump from peace to violence.
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.
“Immediately we do exile him hence. I have an interest in your hate’s proceeding” (Act iii scene 3).Romeo had just married Juliet, and he got banished because he killed Tybalt ,his joyfulness ended quickly because of his actions. Family and the things we love can be affected based on our actions, that is why we should be careful on how we act because an action that seems harmless may harm you and affect you in the over time. In the act where Romeo gets banished from Verona we can observe that his revenge led him to no good. Romeo lost a chance to live happily with his newly wed, things could’ve been different if Romeo would have left everything the way it was and not go against
The flower which his arrow struck inevitable was the cause of all the chaos in this play. Had cupid not been blind, had love listened to reason, he may not have missed. The problems from love that were endured by our lovers would never have occurred. Here Shakespeare heads the message that a love which follows no reason is the route of loves problems. In conclusion, A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the story of the difficulties of love.
Most people believe that romance brings love and affection, but when taken to the extreme, it can lead to tragedy and despair. Romeo and Juliet may be the most famous of the great literary tragedies. The feud between the Montagues and Capulets prohibits the love and ultimately results in the death of the “star-crossed lovers”. It may be difficult to truly determine who is to blame for the tragedy because their lives were influenced and affected by many figures. But the question is, who is most to blame for the death of the two lovers?
Here Juliet means that when she learned Romeos name it was too late, she has fallen under a spell of love. There are a few negative thoughts about Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden relationship. Friar Lawrence even warns Romeo to be careful about the marriage of him and Juliet “These violent delights have violent ends” (Shakespeare 856). Friar means that this is a marriage between these two families filled with hatred along with this history between them, the happy couple won’t last for long, and surely this will end badly. Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865).
First, the author states, “From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,/Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” (Prologue.3-4). Shakespeare attributes the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet as stemming from “ancient grudge”, which is the long-lasting feud between the two families. He then suggests that it is the “civil hands” or family members, who brought them to their deaths. In addition, Shakespeare gives the spoiler that, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life.” (Prologue.6). This is something a typical modern-day playwright wouldn’t do.
