After they decided they wanted to get married right away, Romeo and Juliet go to Friar’s cell to get married. Friar first questions the love because Romeo was in love with another women only a few hours ago. He only agrees to marry them because he thinks it will end the family tension. “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; / For this alliance may be so happy prove / To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (II.iii.90-92).
In William Shakespeare 's Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the two star-crossed lovers portray their love by protecting each other at any cost, choosing one another above all else, and marrying as soon as possible. For Romeo and Juliet, it’s important for them to protect each other at any cost. Romeo had just been banished for killing Tybalt, and Nurse is talking poorly of Romeo, but Juliet won’t stand for it, “Blistered be thy tongue for such a wish! He was not born to shame. Upon his brow shame is ashamed to sit, for ’tis a throne where honor may be crowned.
Romeo and Juliet is a classic romance story by William Shakespeare about two star-crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, falling in love. Nevertheless, their two families have a vendetta against each other, making it difficult for Romeo and Juliet to ever truly be together. This romantic set-up has been used multiple times after Shakespeare, such as West Side Story. The story itself has very romantic and light-hearted moments, but a lot of issues that aren’t paid as much attention to can be calamitous. Despite a lot of the play exploring the positives and the beauty of love and romance, the real lessons from the story are found in the primitive and belligerent nature of the characters.
Juliet says to Romeo not to swear by his love for her because she feels there relationship is moving to fast, “Well do not swear , although I joy in thee, I have no joy of this contract tonight. It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden, too like lightning.” (2.2.116-119) In the story this is showing that Juliet doesn't want to make any promises or swear by their love for each other, and she has not done enough thinking
Finally, Romeo and Juliet get Friar Laurence to marry them. The only proof of this is Friar Laurence saying, “But come on, inconsistent young man, come with me. I’ll help you with your secret wedding” (2.3.89). The wedding is so extremely rushed that in the play, there is no direct statement that shows that they actually got married. Shakespeare most likely skipped over the wedding because Romeo and Juliet’s love had already been proven to be true
Romeo was deeply in love with Rosaline and wanted to be with her and get married. “For beauty starved with her severity…She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair: She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow…” (Romeo and Juliet 1.1.210-214) Romeo thought that Rosaline was everything he was looking for. Rosaline on the other hand did not care for Romeo, or from what the play tells us. Romeo moved on past Rosaline at a party the Capulets were throwing. If Romeo had not moved onto Juliet many, if not all, characters would have still been alive.
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. Friar Lawrence says “Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here!
Some may think that it is Friar´s fault, for making the plan to get Romeo and Juliet married. And it can also be said that it is Benvolio 's who helped Romeo meet Juliet by taking him to the party. However, this is not true because it is Romeo who follows through these plans or advises to make these plans due to his unwise decisions. Afterall, he asked Friar to marry them ¨I’ll tell thee as we pass, but this I pray: That thou consent to marry us today¨ (Shakespeare 2.3.63-64).
“Falling too fast only ends you up with love that won’t last” (Cecily Morgan). In Act Two, Scene Two of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Juliet expresses her initial feelings about her love for Romeo after their first encounter at the Capulets’ party. The purpose of Juliet’s monologue is to convey that love changes an individual’s character and the conception of love at first sight is questionable. Love is a powerful idea that can sway personalities in order to capture the attention of prospective mates. For example, Juliet tells Romeo how her words from earlier that night cause her to blush and she says that she will gladly, “dwell on form… deny / What I have spoke:
In Midsummer Night's Dream Shakespeare is saying that love isn't always easy and some people might want to stop you from loving someone. But if that person is your true love you should pursue them no matter what. There are three main ways he shows this in the play. For example when Eqeus tells Hermia that she can't marry Lysander, but they get married anyway. Another example is when Demetrius doesn't love Helena but Demetrius is Helena's true love so she keeps on pursuing him and they end up together.
In the play, William Shakespeare develops a story where Friar Laurence is to blame for the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet. This play is about two star crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. After days of them meeting they were decided to get married. Romeo persuades Friar Laurence, who is the priest of their church to marry them as soon as possible. The Friar agreed; thinking their families would learn to love and accept each other.
Even though Romeo advances from a family of Montagues and Juliet appears from a family of Capulets, who totally loathe each other, he will not let that stand in the way of love. Juliet emphasizes that Romeo should not care about their opposing families and just “Deny thy father and refuse thy name; What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet” (2.2.40). Romeo may love Juliet nonetheless but with rash decisions comes severe consequences. Senselessly, Romeo risks his life by encountering Juliet.
They would back their statement with how Romeo would do anything for Juliet. While that may be true considering that he died to be with her, that evidence is not strong enough to prove that he was in love with Juliet. The only reason he is with Juliet is because she was the one that returned his love. Here is an example of how Romeo knows only infatuation and not love. At the Capulet ball, he said, “Did my heart love till now?
“Francis Forever” by Mitski The song that fits best with Romeo’s entry in act 1 scene 1 is “Francis Forever” by Mitski. Similar to Romeo’s anguish over Rosaline’s rejection to his affections, the song is about not being seen by the one you love most. According to Benvolio, Romeo walks underneath a sycamore grove before dawn in his sorrow, much like how the song states, “On sunny days, I go out walking /
In the tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare tells a tragic story about how two forbidden lovers sacrifice is the only way to resolve the feud between their families. Even though Romeo and Juliet have a tragic ending, the road there is not that bad. In Act II, Scene ii, Shakespeare shows one of the lovers’ first conversations, which is painted by his very careful choice of words. He uses syntax, diction, and other narrative devices to depict the mood of Romeo and Juliet and In the passage, Shakespeare uses syntax to set the differing moods between Romeo and Juliet.
