Claudio fell in love with Hero right when he laid his eyes upon her. Claudio claims, “In mine eye she is the sweetest lady that I ever looked on (I.i.183-184).” This example shows that Claudio fell in love with her looks, not her personality. Another reason for their unrealistic relationship is Hero fakes her death after being accused of cheating. Shakespeare wrote, “Done to death by slanderous tongues, was the Hero that here lies. Death, in guerdon of her wrongs, gives her fame which never dies.
However, Demetrius loves Helena’s friend, Hermia, and wishes to marry her. Helena is still in love with Demetrius and although she and Hermia are close, she is jealous of her friend, this is just one instance in which romantic love prevails over friendship love. In the play, true
However, Helena has been always in love with him. She is the only one that cares more about the essence of love. In fact, when the two Athenians boys love the same woman she says: “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind”(I.i.234). With that sentence, she is referring to the beauty of Hermia that impedes Demetrius from noticing the virtues of Helena; and finally, the last couple is Theseus and Hyppolyta. They appear at the beginning and at the end of the play, being imperceptible for the rest of the comedy.
These statements both are saying that Shakespeare knows that he is breaking promises to possibly himself, his religion and others, by loving a married woman. Though he cannot put all the fault onto her, because his vows to love her were only there to exploit the love she was physically giving him. In connection to Shakespeare’s sonnet, Amy Winehouse’s You Know I’m No Good, she is singing about how she is the one in the committed relationship, yet cannot seem to stay loyal to her significant other. Winehouse may love him, but knows that she is not good for their relationship. In her chorus she sings, “I cheated myself / Like I knew I would / I told you I was trouble / You know that I 'm no good” (9-12).
. . A lantern, slaughtered youth,/ For here lies Juliet, and her beauty makes/ This vault a feasting presence full of light.—/ Death, lie thou there, by a dead man interred” (Shakespeare 5.3.84). Romeo and Juliet were deeply in love, but their parent’s poor parenting lead to their secretive relationship and their unnecessarily violent fate. Their relationship shows a depiction of a romantic crush because both Juliet and Romeo are deeply in love with each other, showing that “Because a romantic crush is a potent mix of idealization and infatuation, it does not require knowing another person well at all” (Pickhardt).
“Everytime I see you I fall in love all over again” (Johnny Cash), this was too true for these star-crossed lovers. Juliet was just fourteen when she married Romeo but it was common to marry young back then. Also, Romeo and Juliet acted very immature at times so they may not even know what love is. In Shakespeare 's tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, they love each other because of three main reasons, they decided to kill themselves to each other, Loved each other to the point where it cured depression and brought happiness, and they are willing to go against the family for each other. In Romeo and Juliet it is obvious they loved each other due to = many reasons.
The first reason that Romeo and Juliet are not in love due to the fact that they are too childish to fully understand what love is. During the famous balcony scene, Juliet says, “But to be frank, and give [my love to] thee again, And yet I wish but for the thing I have. My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.” (2.2.31-35). Juliet is pledging her love and wishing she could take it back just to give it to Romeo again. According to Mental Health Daily, “The human brain's frontal lobe does not fully develop until age 20-25”, and
As stated by George Sand, “There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.” This quote by George Sand means that the only way you can be happy is to love someone and be loved by someone. People who are depressed or don’t believe in love, should believe in love because it is the only way to live life. In Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, the relationship between Claudio and Hero proves to be an ineffective relationship in today’s society due to immaturity and lack of communication, whereas Benedick and Beatrice’s relationship was based on trust and it was emotional to the audience. In the cream of the crop literature, Much Ado About Nothing , Shakespeare displayed that Benedick and Beatrice’s relationship is
Another somewhat minor mistake that changes the future is Romeo and Juliet’s mistake to pursue their love. Romeo and Juliet may be madly in love right from the start, but it wouldn’t have killed them to forget the idea of a forbidden love. “Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here! / Is Rosaline, whom thou [Romeo] didst love so dear, / So soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies / Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (Shakespeare 2.3.65-68).
His friend, Claudio, was the exact opposite; he fell in love with Hero as soon as he laid his eyes on her. Don Pedro is also one of the characters who got to experience love. He does not fall in or out of love during the play by he does realize how important it is. Leonato and Don Pedro were discussing marriage when Don Pedro states about Beatrice, “I wish she were in love with me instead. I would have thrown away all other considerations and made her my wife.” (2.3.140-143.)
