Was it actually possible for Romeo and Juliet to fall in love? The answer is no. Romeo and Juliet were so young, and Romeo is getting over a breakup. They are both also looking for escapism. Romeo and Juliet were not in love because they barely knew each other, Romeo just got over a breakup, and they were both looking for escapism.
We know that this is not the first time he has used these descriptive phrases; for Rosaline, he claimed the same, and yet Juliet is ignorant of his fickle affections and charmed by his eloquently-phrased declarations. Then, when events take a tragic turn and she finds Romeo, dead of his own tragic flaw, passionate impetuousness, Juliet indulges in this mistake herself and commits suicide. Once again, she thinks only of her “need” to be with him and not of the effects on the others who closely share her life. She is blinded by her single-minded love for this fickle boy who loved another only hours before. In this respect, romantic love can never
Similarly, in Romeo and Juliet, the audience is aware that Juliet has taken the sleeping potion but Romeo isn’t, and they also know that the letter Romeo receives isn 't the letter the Friar sent to him, rather a fraudulent one. The climax scene is also the death scene in Romeo and Juliet. Another scene in Romeo and Juliet is the Prologue as the audience know from the beginning that the protagonists’ fate is set to death; “A pair of star-cross 'd lovers take their life; Whose misadventur 'd piteous overthrows; Doth, with their death, bury their parents’ strife” (1. Prologue). The use of dramatic irony makes the audience feel more involved in the story even though they can predict the ending, the drama comes from how the ending is done and at what
I am no pilot, yet, wert thou as far as that vast shore...I would adventure” (II.ii. 81-84). Romeo explained to Juliet that love lead him to her, revealing that he himself had no control over his actions. He could only control how his eyes acted, making him fall in love with Juliet. From that image, love took control of his brain, causing him to run back to Juliet.
Being in love requires two individuals to know each other very well and to have a deep connection. In the play, Romeo and Juliet, two characters feel lust and mistake it for love. I believe that Romeo was attracted to Juliet's appearance but didn't truly love her because he did not know her well enough and had not even got to spend enough time with her. In addition, Romeo proved that his love is false when he immediately goes from one girl, to Juliet. Besides rebounding, the couple shows that they are far too young and foolish for their “love” to be real.
Romeo is caught in the situation of killing someone without thinking twice about it more than once. When Romeo kills Tybalt out of anger, he doesn’t think about the repercussions this will have on his relationship with Juliet. Some may say the family feud is to blame for their death; however, from the start of the play, it is suggested that Romeo and Juliet were fated to die. Even if there wasn’t a family feud fate, which is what the whole story is based on, would’ve still played out and they would’ve died. Juliet is exceedingly impulsive.
Romeo and Juliet were tragic heroes whose deaths are caused by their own faults and inability to make decisions without minor characters telling them what to do. Romeo causes his own downfall, with his impetuous and reckless nature. Upon seeing Juliet for the first time, Romeo lovingly says, “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! / For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night” (1.5.54-55).
Romeo buys poison and drinks it next to Juliet’s body. Juliet wakes to find him dead, and also kills herself out of grief. Some may argue that the two lovers’ deaths were fate, but some argue free will. Fate being that they had no control over their death, and free will being they made the choice, and they had complete control. I think it was fate that caused Romeo and Juliet’s death.
The Friar was reluctant at first but decides, “‘In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; For this alliance may happy prove To turn your households rancor to pure love’” (2.3 97-100). With allowing Romeo and Juliet to get married without either of their parents permission, Romeo and Juliet only became closer, which became a problem when Romeo was banished to Mantua. If Friar Lawrence had told the two
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
