If you think about it the love and hate is evened out. The hate of both families are strong enough to pull Romeo and Juliet apart, but their love for eachother is strong enough that even if they try to do that they can’t. It’s kind of already proven that the families can’t break up Romeo and Juliet. They killed themselves because they didn’t think they could live without the other. Speaking of them killing themselves, at the end of the play the families are in the tomb and know that Romeo and Juliet
When Romeo, Tybalt, and Mercutio get in a fight at the end of the play it is a prime example of how Benvolio’s naivety. During this scene Tybalt kills Mercutio and then Romeo kills Tybalt. Benvolio is talking to a police officer about the murders. “O noble prince, I can discover all/ The unlucky manage of this fatal brawl./ There lies the man, slain by young Romeo,/ That slew thy kinsman, brave Mercutio”(3.2 53-56). Benvolio tells the truth about what happens which is an example of how he is naive, because he thinks that good things will happen if you tell the truth.
If Friar Laurence did not give Juliet the vial, Romeo would not kill himself because he thinks Juliet is dead. Thus Juliet would not kill herself because Romeo is dead. So, Friar Laurence made some poor choices involving Romeo and Juliet’s relationship inevitably making him partially
At this point, Juliet is unaware of his name and demands that the nurse tells her. ‘His name is Romeo, and a Montague, The only son of your enemy’ Juliet is clearly quite distraught and replies with a very emotional line, ‘My only love sprung from my only hate’. The contrast of love/hate, in my opinion is very powerful. It illustrates Juliet’s raw emotions and feelings for Romeo. She continues to add, ‘Too early seen unknown, and known too late’.
To show us love would still be love if not called lve and that she would still love Romeo if he weren't a Montague. This line was one of the most famous in the whole play because it showed us how names carry no meaning but are only as significant as what the name holds. Romeo coveys his feelings towards his name with a sympathetic and bitter tone to reply to the pain Juliette feels.“take thee at thy word: Call me but love, and I'll be new baptized; Henceforth I never will be Romeo”. Romeo shows understanding in the attitude in which he replies to Juliet.To give her comfort in the fact he will not be called Romeo from now on since his love dislikes. “By a name I know not how to tell thee who I am: My name, dear saint, is hateful to myself, Because it is an enemy to thee; Had I it written, I would tear the word”.
/ Romeo’s [weak/nothing compared] to him” (3.5 215-221). The Nurse’s contradictory ideals, hastily brought upon her by the anger of the Capulets, only served to incite feelings of disbelief and distrust within Juliet. Shakespeare’s portrayal of Juliet and the Nurse’s contrasting ideals emphasizes Juliet’s rebellious and defiant manner occurring at the climax of the play, with this very manner determining Juliet’s fate as well. Hence, the Nurse's impetuous proposition merely progresses the tragic events which befell both Romeo and Juliet. All in all, the older generation (of mentors) exemplifies the catastrophic effects of impetuous decisions as
“Some consequence yet hanging in the stars shall bitterly begin his fearful date with this night’s revels, and expire the term of a despised life closed in my breast by some vile forfeit of untimely death.”(1.4.113-118) The monologue of Romeo impacts the feeling of passion and the fate of love. The promise to Juliet is heavy, sweet but cruel in the end. When the heart-breaking news of Juliet’s death makes the mind of Romeo intense, death will be only solution that Romeo must
Love and hate are binary opposites but the but before the death of Romeo and Juliet, the two themes fought against each other make one even more powerful. There are many examples of when Hate bring Love stronger but the major one is after all the fighting and deaths ‘Where be these enemies? Capulet! Montague! See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate.’ (page: 290 Line: 290 Act 5 Scene 3) The meaning of this quotes is that if the two houses never fought then the two lovers would not have been worried about getting caught by their families and would not have killed themselves.
Richard L. Evans once wrote, ¨There are always consequences to your actions. Before you act foolish, make sure you are prepared for them.¨ In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, foolish actions and traits lead to unforgettable consequences. Many of the characters are similar in the way they act. They all seem to become careless at least one time throughout the play. The Capulets and Montagues prove to be overbearing, Juliet proves to be carelessly falling in love, and Friar Lawrence proves to be controlling.
In their fight to the death of Tybalt Capulet, Mercutio Montague was killed, resulting in Romeo's efforts of keeping the peace, shattering. The fight is initially started by Tybalt, who is responsible for Mercutio's death. Shortly after, Tybalt was killed by Romeo. Romeo Montague should be charged with voluntary manslaughter. Despite the fact that Tybalt initiated the fight, Romeo did kill Tybalt with no need for self-defense.
