But, that didn’t stop him to see his beloved Juliet. Also, in Act ll, scene ll, Juliet states, “Or, if thou will not be but sworn my love,/And I’ll no longer be a Capulet (2.2.35-36). Juliet is willing to change her name, her title, to be with Romeo. As a result, that is one reason that the pair are truly in love. The pair truly love each other because they are willing to marriage.
After talking to each other they instantly kiss and fall in love. When Romeo and Juliet fall in love, you should get to know the person, but Romeo and Juliet only had a conversation during a party. In truth, both Romeo and Juliet don’t even know each other 's identity. Juliet had asked her nurse to “Go ask his name-if he is married, my grave is like to be my wedding bed. (1.5,134-135)” Juliet had already fallen for him but didn’t even know that he was a Montague, her enemy.
In fact, as the play progressed, we are met with a scene where Juliet has no other choice but to marry Paris, who the Capulets originally planned Juliet to marry in the first place. The nurse was giving her advice on how she should marry Paris instead of Romeo. Soon after Juliet heard the nurse’s advice, readers can now see the thirst for Romeo from Juliet: “ If all else fail, myself have the power to die” (3.5.243). This is a crucial turning point for Juliet as it shows that Juliet is truly in love with Romeo and is willing to kill herself if she never sees Romeo again. The emotions shown by Juliet, conveys how strong love is able to overtake the mind and
Love Love definitely is a feeling that encompasses not only the mind and body of two people but it somehow creates a bond between them. In fact, romantic writing bordered heavily on love between two people, thus giving rise to the belief that love overrides all other emotions. ‘love’ has been in the fore front of the society over the ages. The idea of falling in and out of love is not exactly new, it had to face umpteen challenges, obstacles to raise its pretty head, and prompt generations to be its followers! But the irony is ‘love’ and it is misunderstood and misplaced.
Intro Romeo and Juliet is a tragic love story about two star-crossed lovers. This play involves love, hate, death, violence, vengeance, and betrayal. Before Romeo and Juliet met, Romeo was in love with another girl called Rosalind. He was quite heartbroken when he was rejected as shown in this sentence in Act 1 Scene 1 “Out of her favour, where I am in love.” and “Alas, that love, whose view is muffled still, Should, without eyes, see pathways to his will!”. Juliet was going to be married to count Paris before they met.
Romeo and Juliet fell in “love” at the party, declare their undenying love on the same night, get married the next day, and are having sex on their fourth day since knowing each other. Prior to the party, Romeo said, “When the devout religion of mine eye Maintains such falsehood, then turn tears to fire (Shakespeare Act 1, Scene 3, lines 95-96).” when he was describing his faith towards Rosaline, his “love” interest at the time. When he sees and approaches Juliet, all thoughts of Rosaline disappear when he says, “If I profane with my unworthiest hand This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready to stand To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss (Shakespeare Act 1, Scene 5, lines 102-105).” Romeo is clearly careless with his love and changes his mind a lot, his declaration of love to Juliet scenes unbelievable because he was desperately in love with Rosaline just hours before. Juliet also seems to be lusting after Romeo because she hints early on that she wants to have sex with Romeo when she says, “Spread thy close curtains, love performing night, That runaways eyes may wink, and Romeo Leap to thee arms, untalked and unseen. Lovers can do their amorous rites (Shakespeare Act 3, Scene 2, line 58)” .
Act II, Scene 6, “But my true love is grown to such excess I cannot sum up sum of half my wealth.” With Juliet’s love so strong and unimaginably great, she could not begin to calculate the amount of love she feels toward Romeo. Romeo and Juliet had a passive, committed, and an unbreakable relationship, and their love was so young and passionate. Though it consequentially became agitated at times when they tried to conceal it from their families.
In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the nature of Romeo and Juliet’s love is what leads to a paradigm changing tragedy. To begin with, the nature of Romeo and Juliet’s love allows them to rise above the feuding of their families. Their love is shown to be pure and all-consuming: “Amen, amen! But come what sorrow can, it cannot countervail the exchange of joy that one short minute gives me in her sight. Do thou but close our hands with holy words, then love-devouring death do what he dare, it is enough I may but call her mine,” (2.6.3-8).
In Shakespeare 's Romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, show they are in love in many ways, such as the fact that they are willing to die for each other. Romeo demonstrates part of this willingness when he says, “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight. Let’s see for means. O mischief, thou art swift to enter the thoughts of desperate men!” (5.1.36-38). As a result of saying this, Romeo shows us that he is looking for a way to die in order to join Juliet in death, even though the audience is shown she is not really dead.
The final reason Romeo and Juliet are not truly in love is that they decide to get married right after they meet. “Three words, dear Romeo, and good night indeed. If that thy bent of love be honorable, thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow by one that I’ll procure to come to thee. Where and what time thou wilt perform the rite, and all my fortunes at thy foot I’ll lay and follow thee my lord throughout the world.” (act 2 scene 2 line 148-154) In this quote, Juliet is saying that if Romeo loves her he would marry tomorrow. This quote was chosen because they are talking about getting married hours after they first met.
