Romeo asks a question about the way he feels “Did my heart love till now?” (Shakespeare 826). In this scene all it takes is one look at Juliet for Romeo to fall in love all over again. He forgets all about Rosaline and focuses on Juliet, his one true lover. Friar Lawrence confronts Romeo about his problem with infatuation “Young men’s love, then lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes” (Shakespeare 846). Friar tells Romeo that he only loves within his eyes and not his heart.
The main cause for Juliet’s death was Romeo. From the beginning of the play, Romeo had many issues, such as his depression and his tendency to fall in deep infatuation, mistaking it for love. Based on the text, the audience is able to infer that Romeo used girls to fill his depression that his family was attempting to help him with. When Romeo went to Friar Laurence 's cell to speak to him about his love for Juliet, the friar made it known to the audience that Romeo was seemingly just as in love with Rosaline not long before. Romeo led Juliet to believe that he was exceptionally in love with her, when he most likely showed a pattern of this behavior in the past.
One way Romeo’s thoughtlessness and immaturity causes the tragedy to occur is through his simplistic feelings of love. When Romeo is first introduced in the play he is a depressed and lovesick boy suffering from unrequited love. He is madly in love with Rosaline, a girl whom has sworn to live in chastity. Romeo barely knows Rosaline, but he has an infatuation with her that he calls love. Romeo exclaims to Benvolio, “Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health,/ Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!/ This love feel I, that feel no love in this.” (1.1.174 - 176) Romeo is saying that love is everything except what it is, and that he feels so much love yet just as much unhappiness because his love is not reciprocated.
In the original play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two star-crossed lovers find themselves racing against death in the dangerous game of love with the aid of a corrupted Friar. The prize of endless bliss and passion would have been bestowed upon the two if they were not so reactive towards the events in the plot. The tragic flaw of impetuosity is depicted through the entire play through the actions and words of Friar Lawrence, Juliet and Romeo. The first time the reader gets a glimpse of Romeo’s impetuosity is in Scene V, Act I, where he is seen admiring Juliet from afar. In Scene I of Act I, Romeo is constantly moping about his failed romantic dream, Rosalind, but his emotions seem to take a rather sudden turn upon the appearance of Juliet.
This love feel I, that feel no love in this.” (1.1.174-176). The oxymoronic enumeration of Romeo’s citing is utilised to express and exaggerate his contradictory perspective of love, which further suggest to readers about Romeo’s love-sickness. As the sympathetic person Benvolio is, he advises Romeo to notice other girls, contrary of what Romeo expected. In this way, Benvolio shows

The love between two controversial teens in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare caused many fights and lead to multiple deaths including their own. Shakespeare uses specific characters to show that the violence in the play is irrational. In particular, the characters Prince Escalus and Lord Capulet are two essential components, in helping Shakespeare prove that. Throughout the play Escalus appears when violence has taken place or is taking place as he is a symbol of the law. Namely, in Act 1 scene 1, when the Montagues and the Capulets, have “disturbed the quiet of [Verona’s] streets” (1.1.93) it causes the Prince to tell them that “[Their] lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace,” (1.1.99), this being an important factor
What this quote is explaining is that, when a person is going through a hard time in life, blame of other people is typically their reaction. I agree completely with statement due to the fact that people often use blame a coping mechanism. Blame is a huge part of Romeo and Juliet, because the reader places blame onto the people in which they believe is the cause of a situation or outcome, such as the death of Romeo and
