When Romeo was exiled he wished for his own death , the Friar reminded him,” Thy Juliet is alive, For whose dear sake thou wast but lately dead.” (A3 S3 L152-153) Romeo was acting without thought and did not think about the grief he would cause Juliet if he killed himself. When the Friar also gave advice to Juliet when she threatened to kill herself because she had to marry Paris, the Friar stated, “Then is it likely thou wilt undertake a thing like death to chide away this shame.” (A4, S1, L81-82) The Friar scolded Juliet for not part in her responsibilities, and
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, written by Shakespeare, display many characters showing various traits. In the play, lovers from conflicting families find love and plan to wed, but death is presented. Romeo, Juliet, Friar Laurence, and the Nurse, characters, all show impetuosity in some form throughout the play. Romeo and Juliet’s love and age brings impulsiveness into the play multiple times. Upon meeting Juliet, Romeo is set on marrying Juliet, “Then plainly know my heart's dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet; As mine on hers, or hers is set on mine, And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage”(Anadiplosis) (ii.
Friar Laurence believes that Romeo and Juliet should go, “Go wisely and slow,” he then says that if you go to fast bad thing will happen so he said this, “They stumble that run fast (2.3.94).” Romeo gets this advice while he tries to get Friar Laurence to marry them so he tells them to take it slow and steady. How might they not listen to this advice? They need to learn this lesson because they fall in love without actually knowing each other or even thinking about the consequences. They don't ask who they are they just fall in love. “Sin from my lips?
Both Juliet and Romeo experience this feeling when Romeo becomes banished from Verona. The last time Romeo sees Juliet alive, his grief is affirmed with his line, “More light and light, more dark and dark our woes” (Romeo 3.5.36). He is expected to be gone by daylight, but the two lovers are clutching onto their last moments together. This love that has brought the two main characters together has, in some sense, made them foolish. Juliet would rather die than to be with another man, “If all else fail, myself have power to die” (Juliet 3.5.255).
Without thinking, Romeo and Juliet became victims of their own love chargeable to Friar Lawrence, young age and fate. First, I believe Friar Laurence is to blame is of how unfaithful he was throughout the story. For example, “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households' rancor to pure love.” (2.3.96-99). This shows that Friar Laurence doesn't believe that Romeo's love for Juliet is authentic, but he agrees to marry them anyway.
They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival. 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).
An example of a fate is the prologue. The prologue is a fate because it talks about love and how Romeo and Juliet cannot control whom they marry. In act one when Montague says to Benvolio, “I would thou wert so happy by thy stay to hear true shrift.” Montague is making fate with Benvolio while saying this. Another fate is when Peter asked Romeo to read the list who was attending the party, Peter asked Romeo to read the list so he would see Rosaline’s name on the list; causing fate. Fate is just a way to be rude to someone with a reasoning behind it.
How Juliet’s language shows her love for Romeo The 1694 play Romeo and Juliet introduced to the world the love story of two of litterature’s most prominent historical star crossed lovers. The two characters in question are Romeo and Juliet, whose love overthrows the balance of their world. Before meeting Romeo in Act 1, scene 5, Juliet appears to be an intelligent child, mature beyond her years and devoted to her family. This situation is completely overturned once Romeo, her first true love, enters the seemingly perfect picture that is her life. Shakespeare communicates the love that Juliet possesses for Romeo wonderfully with the use of distinct language techniques.
One example is after Juliet's first encounter with Romeo at the party. When finding out the Romeo is from the enemy’s family, she tells her personal guardian, “ My only love, sprung from my only hate!” (Shakespeare III.v.147). This shows that even Juliet realizes that her true love rose from those who she was supposed to hate. This proves that violence can put an end to problems, because Romeo's problem of finding true love is solved due to the enmity of the families. Another example, of violence turning into love is when the prince, prince of Verona, tells the Montagues and Capulets that the heavens decided to punish them, due to the death of Romeo and Juliet.
Juliet is talking about Romeo and expressing her love but, how she wishes that he wasn’t a Montaque. What she doesn’t realize is that Romeo is below the balcony. But, the audience sees Romeo below the balcony hearing what Juliet is saying and listening how she wishes that he wasn’t a Montague. An Example of dramatic irony in Scene 2 are when Romeo tells his friends “he jests at scars that never felt a wound.” Romeo’s friends think that Romeo is still going after Rosaline Case 3 when Romeo is really going after Juliet. Finally in Scene 5 when Romeo has learned that Juliet has died, Romeo wishes to go and die by her side.
Romeo and Juliet By: William Shakespeare How much trouble would you go through to find love? At the beginning of the book Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Romeo decided to go to a Capulet 's party because he had seen that the girl he liked was on the guest list for the party. He was so in love with Rosaline but he knew she didn 't love him back so he then fell in love with Juliet. Later on in the story Romeo killed Mercutio, Tybalt, Paris, his mother, Juliet and himself. The main argument is that Romeo shouldn 't have went to the party, fall in love with another girl, and killed the 5 people including himself.
Romeo and Juliet is a novel written by Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet are two star crossed lovers. Romeo gets banished because of his killing behavior. Juliet is very depressed because of his behavior and killing, Lord Capulet decides that it would be a good idea for Juliet to marry Paris. Juliet doesn’t want to marry him because she is already married to Romeo, so she and the Friar devise a plan to let Romeo and Juliet live happily ever after.
There is love at first sight but is it true love? In the book “Romeo and Juliet”, Romeo and Juliet may show signs of love and say things like “I would die for you” but is it coming from the heart or are they just saying it. They had only truly met at the Capulet’s Ball but Juliet is already saying “ My only love sprung from my only hate.” (1.5, 136) This shows that Juliet found love at first sight. Also, although Romeo was obsessed with Rosaline, he had confessed, talking about Juliet saying “It is my lady, Oh it is my love. Oh, that she knew she were!”(2.2,10-11)This shows that Romeo fell for Juliet too.
Yet Romeo and Juliet 's love is one that transcends the orthodox realms of society and goes against what is socially appropriate. Even Friar Lawrence makes this distinction when he speaks of the difference between loving and doting. This is the difference between Romeo 's feelings for Rosaline and for Juliet. His love for Rosaline being trivial and juvenile while his feelings for Juliet are more intense and even at times imply a vague sense of religious idolatry. Juliet too, shares similar feelings which is displayed in her soliloquy, thinking of Romeo: “My only love sprung from my only hate!” (Shakespeare 50).
Some say that every love story written since owes at least a little something to this story of Juliet and her Romeo. There are probably a hundred reasons why the play is so famous. Any love story needs an obstacle, something that keeps the lovers apart, at least temporarily. Shakespeare 's version of an obstacle, the feud between the two families, has been imitated so often it is now cliché. Yet, the formula still continues to
