Forswear it, sight!/ For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (I., v, 52-53). He matured a lot because he was not sitting in his bedroom pouting, he was out trying to be a better person. In Act 2, Scene 3 when Romeo informed Friar Lawrence of his love for Juliet, the Friar replied, “Holy Saint Francis! What a change is here!/ Is Rosaline, that thou didst love so dear,/ So soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies/ Not truly in their heart, but in their eyes” (II., iii, 65-68).
His beloved Rosaline, which he could not make absent in his mind, has suddenly vanished from existence the moment Romeo gets a glimpse of the pretty face of Juliet. Romeo forgets about Rosaline when he sees Juliet, as he states “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight, for I ne’er saw true beauty till this night”(184.108.40.206). Romeo notices how his love for Rosaline was not true, yet he still chooses to “love” someone new immediately, although this is just the same as his previous “love.” His judgement of the love he feels is based merely on beauty, although this is physical attraction, which heh does not understand. Romeo and Juliet are young and have not
Did Romeo feel that Rosaline was less of a challenge, seeing as she was not part of a main family, whereas Juliet would serve as a challenge, coming from the House of Capulet? At first, he seems set on the beautiful Rosaline; a beautiful girl who just so happens to be Juliet’s distant cousin. Rosaline on the other hand, is very much against this idea, since she had sworn off all men and basically treated Romeo like the dirt under her shoe. That did not dissuade Romeo; at the beginning of the play, we see him pining after her; complaining to his friend Mercutio about how she was playing
According to the play, “It is my lady, O it is my love.” (2.2.11) here, Romeo is declaring his love for Juliet just by seeing her. As quickly as he and Rosaline broke up and then laying eyes on Juliet, he claims she will be his wife. With the guidance of his parents telling him that this is not how
The prince of Verona, Escalus, forbids all duels inside the city walls to overcome the upsurge of hatred, therefore introducing the rule of law. When he banishes Romeo after Mercutio and Tybalt get killed, he takes a hard decision because he knows Romeo did all that he could to avoid the duel and killed Tybalt only to avenge Mercutio’s death. The cost of peace is very high. The Prince himself, ruler of this bickering city, loses two of his kinsmen before reaching peace. Under this point of view, Romeo and Juliet is a very modern drama of split loyalties.
He speaks in a poetic way. He digs deep into himself and brings out the emotions out. Romeo loves Juliet very much he thinks that she is very beautiful. In Act 1 Scene 5, when Romeo was at Lord Capulet 's party, he says “O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!” According to me in this situation, Romeo means that Juliet is so beautiful that she shines more than the torches. In act 1 scene 5 line 43-44 “It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night, like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear”.
In fact, as the play progressed, we are met with a scene where Juliet has no other choice but to marry Paris, who the Capulets originally planned Juliet to marry in the first place. The nurse was giving her advice on how she should marry Paris instead of Romeo. Soon after Juliet heard the nurse’s advice, readers can now see the thirst for Romeo from Juliet: “ If all else fail, myself have the power to die” (3.5.243). This is a crucial turning point for Juliet as it shows that Juliet is truly in love with Romeo and is willing to kill herself if she never sees Romeo again. The emotions shown by Juliet, conveys how strong love is able to overtake the mind and
He forgot about Rosaline and falls in love with Juliet. They kiss and after the party they talk at Juliet’s balcony. After that they both decided to get married, so they get married with the help of Friar Laurence but they did not have permission from their family. Right after the marriage, Romeo kills Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin, and is banished from Verona. Juliet’s father, Lord Capulet, forces Juliet to marry to Paris but she
In Romeo and Juliet, the Shakespearean tragedy, it is proved that it is not. Why? Juliet was the rebound to Romeo’s other love, Rosaline, they both take actions that show they’re immature, and Romeo is already in ‘love’ with Juliet before he gets to know her, and it shows Romeo is only attracted to Juliet for her looks not her actual self. In Romeo and Juliet they were not in love; Romeo was in love with another beautiful lady named Rosaline, and Juliet was just his rebound. Romeo was not aware of Juliet 's existence until he went to a party.
Romeo and Juliet are not in love with each other because just a day before they met, he felt heartbroken because of a girl named Rosaline who didn 't love him, he pressures Juliet to profess her love to him, and after just barely meeting, they both agree to get married. At the beginning of this popular Shakespeare play, Romeo claims to be in love with a girl named Rosaline. He cries for days about her before he meets Juliet because she rejected his love for her. When Romeo first appears in the play, he appears to be too distracted with his heartache from Rosaline’s disenchantment of Romeo’s affection. His dwelling over his “love [for Rosaline], feel no love...”(Shakespeare, Act I, line:177) seems to take up all his attention, making him only want to talk about how glum he is rather than the carnage of the town after the fight between the Montagues and Capulets that happened just moments prior to his arrival.
