Young men’s love then lies/ Not truly in their heart, but in their eyes” (II., iii, 65-68). This shows how immature Romeo was when he met Rosaline, because he loved the sight of her, but did not really know her and it shows how he matured after he met Juliet. Also, when Romeo hears of Juliet 's death and goes straight to an Apothecary to get a poison. He does not do what he does throughout the entire play, which is consulting with Friar Lawrence. Romeo does not talk to the Friar about Juliet 's death, instead he takes it into his own hands.
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep the more I give to thee, the more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite”-- Shakespeare. The play Romeo and Juliet is a romantic love story about a young man named Romeo who falls in love with a girl named Juliet, but is unable to marry her because of a family feud. Throughout the play, Shakespeare thoroughly explores the themes of true love, enduring love and forbidden love. However, audiences question whether Romeo truly loves Juliet. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the couple absolutely demonstrates true love for one another.
As their love began with simply being attracted to one another; it mutated into something so intense, that it would later destroy themselves and others in the process. Romeo & Juliet articulates the potency of love and how it is able cause destruction to everyone. Their bond depicts intimate love for each other, but in the end, it seemed like it was doomed from the very start. Separation was the key factor where love was evoked in Romeo & Juliet. Scenes in the play were able to
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is a play about devotion and how extreme passion can turn into violence and tragedy. The two main characters, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, are from opposing families who have been feuding for years. At a Capulet family party celebrating the impending marriage of Paris and Juliet, Juliet meets Romeo and they fall into a deep passion for each other. Within two days, Romeo and Juliet are secretly married by a religious leader named Friar Lawrence. Juliet is extremely agitated that she still has to marry Paris, so she drinks a potion from Friar Lawrence that makes her appear to be dead.
Also, by him listening to his dreams he would have made either little or no poor choices later in the play which results in his death. Lastly, throughout the play, Romeo and Juliet have been threatening suicide to solve their problems (Shakespeare 973-1014). As most people know and understand when people threaten suicide something is wrong and because they were stressed they made more bad choices. That is why Romeo and Juliet are the most guilty people causing the tragic
This first takes off when Romeo and Juliet fell in love with each other and having the desire to go get married. Since their parents are enemies this makes it super difficult and hard to live life together, if they are seen together Romeo could be killed. This sets up the fear of being seen together and them needing to keep their marriage secret. Romeo being banished set up a bigger barrier between him and Juliet. Juliet doesn’t want to get remarried and taking a sleeping potion that was given to her by Friar.
Romeo also kills Juliet’s cousin Tybalt soon after they marry and their story escalates into an intense conflict and Romeo is forcibly exiled. In fact Juliet even goes as far as to poison herself to attempt to protect their young marriage. This is a show of how dramatic young love can be when the chance if it going anywhere is very small. The play Romeo and Juliet is a story of how their rushed young love is torn apart by the feud and fighting between the Montague and Capulet families. With the feud between Romeo and Juliets opposite families, one could say that their young love is set up to fail before it even begins.
Where he drinks the poison just as Juliet is waking, then she stabs herself. The families mend their strife after the death of their children. One probably does not think upon reading this tragedy that Romeo and Juliet did not mature much because of how quickly they fell for one another and how rushed their marriage was, but they matured in many ways. Revenge, love, and a secret marriage forced the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly. They shifted from child to adult in the little time they were together.
In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the nature of Romeo and Juliet’s love is what leads to a paradigm changing tragedy. To begin with, the nature of Romeo and Juliet’s love allows them to rise above the feuding of their families. Their love is shown to be pure and all-consuming: “Amen, amen! But come what sorrow can, it cannot countervail the exchange of joy that one short minute gives me in her sight. Do thou but close our hands with holy words, then love-devouring death do what he dare, it is enough I may but call her mine,” (2.6.3-8).
The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet will forever be known as one of the greatest love stories in history. However, the passion between the two star-crossed lovers is not the only example of love throughout this piece of writing; in fact, it is only one out of many types of love. Whether Shakespeare writes Romeo and Juliet as commentary about the passion or hastiness or any other aspect of teenage love is not the point of the play. Shakespeare writes about the love between two young people, the paternal and protective love from a parental figure or a leader, and the kind of empty and selfish love that one uses for personal motive. Romeo and Juliet is much less shallow and simple than young love, it is a complex statement about many types of relationships
