Shakespeare uses paradoxes in The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet to show the differences and similarities of love and hate. Shakespeare uses religious imagery throughout the play to reinforce the purity of Romeo and Juliet’s love until Romeo kills Tybalt.
From the quote, you can see that the decision of Romeo to go after Juliet after the dance helps them get closer to the tragic end. This is not the only careless decision from continuing to pursue each other. Romeo and Juliet start to make it a pattern of making poor decisions, like them waiting to be married. Juliet is speaking to Romeo about, “Thy purpose marriage” while Juliet is on her balcony and Romeo is below. (Shakespeare 2.2.144)
Juliet suggests to Romeo, “If that thy bent of love be honorable, / Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow” (2.2.150-151). Juliet has much love for Romeo and wants Romeo to have the same for her. Juliet tells Romeo that if he truly loves her, they should marry tomorrow.
It is one of the first things you see in Romeo: "But this I pray, / That thou consent to marry us to-day" (Act 2 Scene 3). In that quote, it can be seen in Romeo's decision to marry so suddenly, particularly when he begs Friar Laurence to marry he and Juliet that day. Based on this, the reader can infer that Romeo is impulsive and there was no real reason to want to be married so suddenly. When Romeo finds his friends Benvolio and Mercutio engaged in a heated exchange with Tybalt, he rushes to stop the aggression between Mercutio and Tybalt. Unfortunately, Mercutio is stabbed because Romeo impulsively steps in the way, preventing Mercutio's sword from defending him.
Friar Lawrence said that Juliet can’t depend on Romeo if he is unreliable, making it seem like Juliet needs Romeo. This shows that Romeo has power and if he is powerless Juliet can’t depend on him. In my view, Brown is right, because Brown’s evidence is accurate and makes sense. More specifically, I believe that Juliet does manipulate Romeo and has control over him. For example in Romeo & Juliet Act 1 Scene 5 Romeo and Juliet first meet, “Saints do not move, though grant for prayers’ sake.”
Romeo and Juliet might as well be a litmus test for your level of cynicism. Romeo and Juliet are some of the most beautiful and most passionate love poetry ever written in English. The theme of love is portrayed by Shakespeare throughout the play through the characterization of Romeo and Juliet. Initially, the dialogue in act 3 scene 2 when Juliet still continues to stand up for her newly wedded husband, Romeo even though he had killed her own cousin, this show and demonstrates the theme of love as she will continue to stand up for her husband even though he killed her cousin that establishes the notion of Juliet’s unconditional love for
Romeo’s complaints give a sliver of insight into the duality of all things, which is a strong, central theme in the play “Romeo and Juliet”. At this moment, Romeo’s heart is heavy as he longs for Rosaline’s affection whilst knowing he cannot gain it. He asks his cousin, Benvolio, to let him hold the torch so that “Being but heavy, [he can] bear the light” (Shakespeare 1.4.12-14). The contrast of his dark, moody, and wallowing attitude against the bright burning light of the torch, suggests that some new and burning desire might enter into the scene soon. Fortunately for Romeo, this will present itself in the form of Juliet.
Another reason Romeo is responsible for his and juliet 's death is Romeo challenges fate, making rash decisions that lead to lifelong consequences for all involved. In the beginning of act 5 scene 1 Romeo is in Mantua saying he had a dream he was dead but juliet kissed him and woke him up and one of Romeo 's servants Balthasar enters which makes romeo very happy and says all is well in the world as long as juliet is alive and Balthasar tells Romeo that Juliet is dead. Romeo cries out “Is it e’en so? Then I defy you, stars!”(V.I.24). This makes Romeo very edgy and tell his servant to give a letter to a montague that he will return that same night and Romeo 's servant leaves.
In Act 2, Scene 3 of Shakespeare 's most famous play to date, Romeo is revealing his love for Juliet to Friar Lawrence, a holy man who is well known and respected. The Friar said to Romeo, “Go wisely and slowly. Those who rush stumble and fall.” After seeing how madly in love Romeo is with Juliet, the Friar agrees to secretly marry the two lovers in hopes that their matrimony will turn their families’ hatred into love. However, the Friar still thinks that Romeo is rushing into love with Juliet.
Shakespeare uses juxtaposition as a kind of indirect characterization that makes Romeo and Juliet’s characters more complex.

In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare uses juxtaposition to show the light in each character and explain their personalities. Shakespeare uses juxtaposition to emphasize how Romeo’s romantic nature ironically leads to something bad. Romeo is a hopeless romantic and is deeply in love with Juliet he is saying that he is looking east and seeing Juliet would be seeing the sun coming up in the east.
