Romantic love is when you feel an abundance of emotions but at the the same time romantic love can cause you to ignore problems with your partner. Which is exactly why this type of love can be described as Love is blind. In Romeo and Juliet , by William Shakespeare, two characters that share romantic love are Romeo and Juliet them self. Romeo and Juliet are basically the definition of romantic love for many reasons, for example when Romeo first sees Juliet, Romeo says “Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight!
With Mercutio being such a skeptic, he mocks love and makes fun of his best friend Romeo when he finds out he has fallen in love with a Capulet; Mercutio states “Romeo, Humors! Madman! Passion! Lover! Appear thou in the likeness of a sigh, speak but one rhyme and I am satisfied.” When Romeo is distressed by his love for Rosaline, he states
It is humorous that Romeo replied, My life were better ended by their hate/ than death prorogued waiting if they love”(2.2.86-87). This shows that Romeo and Juliet truly love each other, which need a certain level of love. Clearly, Romeo and Juliet believe that they are in love and I agree with that. Love at first sight happens to have an unexpected relationship, even though many opponents disagree that love doesn 't exist. Once we understand that there is love at first sight, we will be careful to what we choose.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is influenced by Lord Capulet which plays a dramatic role in the play Juliet and Lord Capulet both have very explosive personalities when it comes to love and marriage. When Juliet first sees Romeo, she is immediately in love with him and thinks about marrying him. Juliet abruptly speaks ”Go ask his name. If he be married, My grave is like to be my wedding bed.”(1.5.132-133). This shows that Juliet is very desperate towards her feelings for Romeo, and him not loving her is not worth living.
This makes love complicated. On page 969 a quote from the nurse to Juliet also helps prove my point “Will you speak well of him that killed your cousin?” This makes love complicated because Romeo killed Juliet 's cousin Tybalt. Juliet could be unhappy with Romeo for this and run away from the
One may argue that the love between the characters is artificial. Romeo and Juliet’s love is artificial because their love was built around physical attraction and their love was rushed. When Romeo makes an appearance at the Capulet party, He spots Juliet across the room. He claims “Did my heart love till now”. As Romeo first notices Juliet, he immediately insist that he has fallen in love.
But at the end you see that it payed off because Demetrius started liking Helena. Helena went through bad times with love just like Hermia even tho Hermia already had two guys that loved her in the beginning. What is Shakespeare saying about love through this play?

Romeo is depressed about his hopeless love for Rosaline. Juliet is Romeo’s second love who is also part of the family that his family has an ancient rivalry with. Romeo’s different use of metaphors and diction when articulating his love for Rosaline and Juliet suggests that Romeo has a childish demeanor when it comes to love. An example of a difference between the ways that Romeo expresses his love for Rosaline versus
Fate is not only fulfilled as a result of Romeo and Juliet’s actions, but by all events surrounding the lovers. Thinking that Juliet is dead, Romeo cries out, “Then I defy you stars” (5.1.24), declaring himself wholeheartedly opposed to the decrees of destiny that so grieve him. These events are not coincidences, but Shakespeare’s misanthropic manipulations of fate - ultimately spiralling the lovers towards the climactic failure of love; the double
From the beginning of the play, it is evident that Romeo is a passionate person. In Act I, Romeo is in a depressive state due to succumbing to love with a woman named Rosaline. On a tirade, Romeo tells how he is somber due to love, furthermore, how love can dismantle one. Rejected, Romeo is woefully articulating his apprehension pertaining to how love has altered him. (1.1 L. 164-176).
