Juliet, A Younger Lord Capulet? Does a parent's personality affect their child's personality? Some children act exactly like their parents while some act completely differently. In Shakespeare’s most well-known play Romeo and Juliet, Juliet makes many confusing choices during the duration of the play. 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.
Over the years, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet has become the basis for many modern romances. West Side Story is such an example, branching off of the original story of Romeo and Juliet to create an original storyline with many major differences. A recurring theme in each of these works is the blindness that love can create. Through secret and public meetings to murdering relatives and ongoing familial feuds, the main couple’s love outlasted it all, even though it was sightless. Paths taken in these two stories were clouded by love and major divergences still brought their stories to a close, each ending with a death, no matter the route taken.
Friar Laurence describes Romeo and Juliet’s love as “violent delights” (2.6.9). In the oxymoron is showing that friar Laurence is thoughtful because Romeo and Juliet difficult love life is moving quickly in Friar Laurence’s eyes. Friar Laurence explains what will happen to Romeo and Juliet if they move too quickly: “And in their triumph die, like fire and powder” (2.6.10). He is describing Romeo and Juliet’s love life. When Shakespeare uses juxtaposition that shows Friar Laurence as caring and worried about the two teenagers.
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet The ‘’Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet’’ by Shakespeare is a play about two protagonist lovers from different families who fell in love with each other and as the play goes on they have to deal with many consequences. The most difficult conflict that they have to deal with is their family feud that has been going on for years. The family feud is worse than any other conflicts and most important the feud between two familes can ruin the relationship between Romeo and Juliet. If the Capulets and Montagues had resolved their differences, both Romeo and Juliet would have live to have a happy life. The Montagues and Capulets realize their mistakes of their ways a little too late.
Romeo and Juliet did not make a decision to love each other, it just happened. There was nothing they could do to change the fact that they fell in love so quickly. In the play there are several reasons why Romeo and Juliet end up dead. After Romeo sees Juliet is “dead” he decides he cannot live another minute without her. He makes an impulsive decision to drink poison, which ends up killing him.
Shakespeare has suggested that their love has the potential to bridge the hatred between the two families and because of this Friar Lawrence agrees to wed Romeo and Juliet in secret.He thinks that the hate between the Montagues and the capulets has gone on for too long and should have nothing to do with if they should love each other or not and they cannot control their feelings and the marriage maybe could fix all the fighting and end it all.Also, Shakespeare has suggested that the fight became the reaction that leads to Romeo's exile and the quickly rushed
If Lord Capulet wasn’t forced Juliet’s to get married to Paris, then there won’t be any deaths but instead, there will be understanding and loved. Because of Lord Capulet hatred on the Montague, there’s death of his own daughter. Even though Lord Capulet did nothing to Romeo, he did something very ungrateful to his daughter. He told her to move out if she’s not going to marry Paris and
He should not have agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet so quickly. Romeo wanted to marry Juliet after knowing her for less than twenty-four hours, which reveals his reckless personality. However, he marries them in hope that it will end the continuous feuding between the two families. When Romeo asks Friar Laurence to marry him with Juliet the Friar doesn't think that his love is true. "O, she knew well/Thy love did read by rote and could not spell."
But even before Juliet knew it was Romeo she said, “If he’s married, I think I’ll die rather than marry anyone else.”(1.5.134-135). She is saying that if this individual she just met is married, she rather die than marry anyone else, but when she gets told that its Romeo she knows he's not married but it is her worst rival. So Juliet could use this to escape marrying Paris, but also escape the family feuds. They weren’t in love because they were using this marriage to escape their families and other
First, Juliet disobeyed her parents when they wanted her to marry Romeo. Following this, she decided to pretend to die leave her family to have a life with Romeo. In the end, Juliet did kill herself after she found Romeo dead, which shows a more significant loyalty to him instead of her family. This goes against the typical bond of loyalty between a family and accentuates the love between Romeo and Juliet. It shows the power of true love, and how it can shift one’s loyalty, even between one’s own family.
