For instance, Juliet confesses to Romeo how she is, “…too fond, / And therefore thou mayst think my haviour light” (2.2.102-103). Juliet is aware that the speed at which she fell in love can be considered frivolous, which demonstrates how rushing love is not a mature decision. Juliet having to reassure Romeo that her love is valid implies that falling in love quickly is associated with false feelings. Moreover, Juliet offers her explanation of how she talked openly about her feelings without knowing Romeo was at her balcony, and she asks of Romeo not to, “impute this yielding to light love” (2.2.109). Juliet finds it necessary to persuade Romeo to believe in her love, which signifies that declaring love extremely promptly comes off as unconvincing.
Figurative Language Response Shakespeare demonstrates the theme that being impulsive will affect your life negatively throughout the book Romeo and Juliet. There are many instances included in this novel that Romeo & Juliet’s youth takes hold of their thinking, and their quick decisions leads to a chain reaction; their death being the final event that shows the result of their impulsivity. This recurring theme is manifest in the following passage (1.5.152-155): My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me That I must love a loathed enemy.
“Tragic flaw… [can] be defined as a trait in a character leading to [their] downfall” (Editors). In many fictitious pieces, characters are given a flaw that leads to consequences. William Shakespeare incorporates the theme of tragic flaw in Romeo and Juliet, through his characters. Tragic flaw is demonstrated by Romeo who falls in love too easily, eventually leading to his death. It is also shown with Tybalt who is very stubborn and reckless, leading to his end.
In Romeo and Juliet, there are many complex characters that make this play more dramatic and interesting. Romeo is clearly one example of a complex character, where his romanticism blurs his sense of reality. An example of where this is seen during the play is when he falls for Juliet even though he declares that there is no one better than the woman he previously loved, Rosaline. Another example is when Romeo realizes that because of how he has lost his sense of reality, he has let his friend Mercutio die to one of their enemies: Tybalt. These two instances show how complex a character Romeo is and this shows how people in the real world can be similar to him by being complex and difficult to understand.
The worst decision one of the adults decided to make is shown in this quote, “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be, / For this alliance may so happy prove / To turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” This quote is from Friar Lawrence when he gives in and decides to marry Romeo and Juliet. This was a very immature decision. He knew how young they were and that it was a bad idea but he decided to give in anyway. This decision would later prove to be an extensively awful one. The nurse made the same bad decision.
In “Romeo and Juliet” most of the characters describe themselves in some way using indirect characterization. Shakespeare creates indirect characterization when he uses oxymorons, paradoxes, and juxtaposition to describe Romeo and Juliet’s complex “star-crossed” love. Through terms of contrast, Shakespeare characterizes Juliet as a loving, sweet, and passionate girl. Juliet is waiting for her wedding night and says, “... And learn me how to lose a winning match” (3.2.12). The juxtaposition talks about how Juliet is nervous, but excited about losing her virginity to Romeo the love of her life.
This passage is important because it not only shows that Juliet is confused about her feelings for Romeo, but also that she feels as though she is a victim of deceit, and for one fleeting moment, is unsure of whether or not she can trust him. Juliet’s use of oxymorons in her monologue shows both the
Romeo is much more compulsive than Juliet in the play "Romeo and Juliet." First, Romeo is more compulsive than Juliet because he claims to be in love with Rosaline before even knowing her. Romeo tells his cousin Benvolio, "Out of her favor where I am in love" (Shakespeare 1.1.178). This quote shows that Romeo falls in love too quickly when it 's clear Rosaline has no interest in him. Second, Romeo is more compulsive because he get 's worked up over a dream.
Sometimes, impatience can lead to tragic events. In the play, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two star-crossed lovers attempt to be together but a family feud between the Montague and Capulet houses eventually causing the two, Romeo and Juliet, to end up in despair. Romeo’s impatience is the tragic flaw that leads to his and Juliet’s death, and is relevant throughout the play because of his actions. If Romeo had not been so impatient, then the play could have turned out differently and for the best instead of the demise that he and Juliet meet. “We met, we wooed, and made exchange of vow/...thou consent to marry us today”(Shakespeare 2.3.62).
This shows that this is not like the love that Romeo had for Rosalind which seemed to be a silly crush. That disappeared once he saw Juliet. In my opinion Romeo and Juliet’s love is not real. Romeo was just lusting after Juliet because he could not get Rosalind and Juliet was easier to get. Shakespeare uses a lot of religious imagery in this
Evitable Fate The universal force can be limited by the actions of humans. The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, is a tragic, dramatic play that shows the awful outcome of love between two immature teens. In this play, the families of the two lovers are main rivals in the city of Verona. The rivalry families have a tension between each other that would oppose the love between Romeo and Juliet. Although fate has a part in the tragic play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare mainly focuses on the mistakes of the characters.
Romeo’s rash behaviors in Romeo and Juliet resulted in many negative consequences, and he consistently acted impetuously that impacted others in an unnecessary way. The actions he committed to were ideally the cause of the death for three major characters . If Romeo would have not been so eager to immediately fix a problem and take a few moments to consider all of the possible consequences, these characters may have been able to live happily ever
If he like ran away or died when Juliet the play would still be on the same level of dispar. If we were to remove Friar Lawrence there would be a happy ending, because Romeo would have got cheated on and then he’d move on to a different girl. The tragedies that happened in Romeo and Juliet are truly dark and depressing. Friar Lawrence is to blame for these events. He tried to change the feelings of people even though he was no professional who knew how the brain worked.
That just shows how fast Romeo’s feelings can change and how he cannot decipher the difference between love and lust. There are also a lot of people who believe that Romeo’s love for Juliet is sincere. But in this case, there is too much evidence that prove that Romeo’s love for Juliet is not true love. His attraction is more physical than emotional. And because Romeo and Juliet got married the same day they met, his love for Juliet was like an obsession.
