For instance, Juliet confesses to Romeo how she is, “…too fond, / And therefore thou mayst think my haviour light” (2.2.102-103). Juliet is aware that the speed at which she fell in love can be considered frivolous, which demonstrates how rushing love is not a mature decision. Juliet having to reassure Romeo that her love is valid implies that falling in love quickly is associated with false feelings. Moreover, Juliet offers her explanation of how she talked openly about her feelings without knowing Romeo was at her balcony, and she asks of Romeo not to, “impute this yielding to light love” (2.2.109). Juliet finds it necessary to persuade Romeo to believe in her love, which signifies that declaring love extremely promptly comes off as unconvincing.
Romeo says that she doesn’t want to fall in love and he says that she beautiful and has lovely eyes, but she is sadly a vrigin and vowed it. Romeo also mentions that Rosalina will die with beauitful, and her beauty will die with her. No matter how hard Romeo tried Rosalina wouldn’t get impressed. One of the personification found in Romeo and Juliet was If love be rough with you, be rough with love. Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down (Act 1, Scene 4, Page 2).
In Romeo and Juliet, there are many complex characters that make this play more dramatic and interesting. Romeo is clearly one example of a complex character, where his romanticism blurs his sense of reality. An example of where this is seen during the play is when he falls for Juliet even though he declares that there is no one better than the woman he previously loved, Rosaline. Another example is when Romeo realizes that because of how he has lost his sense of reality, he has let his friend Mercutio die to one of their enemies: Tybalt. These two instances show how complex a character Romeo is and this shows how people in the real world can be similar to him by being complex and difficult to understand.
In the play Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare’s use of stylized language promotes a deeper understanding of Juliet’s struggle with her conflicting feelings for Romeo. Specifically, she shows her adversity through her monologue of paradox. In this scene, her nurse confesses to Juliet that Romeo, her beloved husband, has killed Tybalt, her kinsman. This leaves Juliet conflicted; she doesn’t know what to do, how to act, or who to choose. This passage is important because it not only shows that Juliet is confused about her feelings for Romeo, but also that she feels as though she is a victim of deceit, and for one fleeting moment, is unsure of whether or not she can trust him.
The most important theme depicted in Acts one and two in Romeo and Juliet is that of love. In the prologue Shakespeare introduces Romeo and Juliet as, “A pair of star-cross’d lovers” whose love was destined for destruction. For Romeo, love is complicated in nature because of his shift of emotions from one girl to another. Once he discovers his new love in Act II, Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden love is the driving force behind their actions and the events that take place. The first example of love takes place in Act I when Romeo is lovesick and acting strange according to his friends and family.
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet: a tragic tale of two paramours with a love so fatal, it ended in their own death. A death so full of love, that it cured the rift between the two families that had made it so lethal in the first place. This essay will be focusing on the the strategies used, by comparing two different adaptations of Romeo and Juliet, to create dramatic tension in the famous entitled ‘Balcony Scene’ or Act II Scene ii. Shakespeare’s intention in this scene was to showcase how raw, beautiful, and terrifying love really is: Romeo listens to Juliet, from the shadows, speaking of her beauty admiringly, even though he knows she cannot hear him, as she comes to a conclusion with herself on her feelings about him. When Romeo reveals himself to Juliet, it’ scary–not because he scared her per say, but rather it’s scary to think what would happen to him if he were to be caught: their families hate each other.
Being separated for Romeo and Juliet only makes their connection fow stronger. In William Shakespeare 's Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the two star-crossed lovers portray their love by protecting each other at any cost, choosing one another above all else, and marrying as soon as possible. For Romeo and Juliet, it’s important for them to protect each other at any cost. Romeo had just been banished for killing Tybalt, and Nurse is talking poorly of Romeo, but Juliet won’t stand for it, “Blistered be thy tongue for such a wish! He was not born to shame.
1, 60-1) Titania is right when she’s saying that Oberon is Jealous. Oberon feels like Titania is not paying enough attention to him. This scene represents the theme because even though Oberon and Titania are married love is still difficult for them. They show the truth of marriage how there are arguments, and a couple can fight. Love potions mess up Titania and Oberon’s true love and not just Titania gets affected.
In William Shakespeare’s iconic 1595 romantic play ‘Romeo and Juliet’, fate is a dominant theme used. This is incorporated into the play by using different literary techniques and a distinctive style of language. The playwright uses destiny to build and develop the personalities of the characters, and to elaborate the plot of the story. The tender-hearted story is set in a prominent Catholic society in Verona, Italy where it is believed that the Shakespearean play was based on a real story focused on the rivalling Capeletti and the Montecci families. William Shakespeare involves the complex theme of fate to connect with his 16th century audience.
This shows that this is not like the love that Romeo had for Rosalind which seemed to be a silly crush. That disappeared once he saw Juliet. In my opinion Romeo and Juliet’s love is not real. Romeo was just lusting after Juliet because he could not get Rosalind and Juliet was easier to get. Shakespeare uses a lot of religious imagery in this
In William Shakespeare 's classic play, Romeo and Juliet, there are two families that have a bitter rivalry but, there is a little love in the air that ends with severe depression. There is one person to blame for letting the depression get worse. Friar Lawrence thinks that everyone should like each other and not dislike anyone. He also makes potions to change people and not letting time change them. Friar Lawrence is undoubtedly to blame for the tragic, depressing events that unfold the “loving” play, Romeo and Juliet.
Romeo is talking about his relationship to Tybalt by marriage. Because of his marriage to Juliet, he and Tybalt are now related. He says that he loves Tybalt more than Tybalt could ever know and that Tybalt will not understand the reason for his love. This makes Mercutio frustrated because Tybalt has just insulted Romeo and now Romeo is saying that he loves Tybalt. Now Mercutio thinks that Romeo is submitting to these insults and believes him to be a disgrace for not standing up for himself and his family.
Romeo and Juliet’s family animosity foreshadows difficulty for the young romance. After the two lovebirds first meet, Romeo recognizes, “[His] life is [his] foe’s debt,” (1.5.32). Once Romeo unveils Juliet as a Capulet, he grasps that their young love includes a heavy price to pay for its continuation and that his life remains in the hands of his enemy. Not only the families, but also the
In the Elizabethan tragedy “Romeo and Juliet” written by William Shakespeare, the characters that are known to be adored, can even be the cause of adversities throughout the beautiful play. Many characters could be accountable for the death of Romeo and Juliet. It might be the Nurse, who had very poor judgement, stringing Juliet along in a relationship that wouldn’t last. Would it be Tybalt, the violent cousin, who resented Romeo? Unexpectedly, the person who is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet is the carefree Romeo.
Romeo 's impulsive behavior and perilous love for Juliet proved to be fatal for both of them. If he had been loyal to the Montague family, and resisted his risky love for Juliet, he would have saved both of their lives. In addition, his extreme, unbridled passion for Juliet put both of them in danger. Even though Romeo was primarily responsible for their deaths and others, Friar also contributed to the deaths of both Romeo and Juliet. By allowing Romeo’s persuasive words and undying passion for Juliet to persuade him to go along with the wedding, he put them both in a risky situation which led to their demise.
