Romeo says, “Then move not, while my prayer’s effect I take/ (Kisses her)/Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purged” (I.v.105-107). Romeo kisses Juliet who
What he receives, however, is a new love blooming in his chest for Juliet. As the play unfolds, the audience watches in anticipation as Romeo and Juliet hide their affections from their respective families and try to become the runaway couple. Shakespeare establishes the theme of “Haste makes waste” by making many references to the path their future is heading down and the nature of their love. While Friar says and hints at many things about Romeo and Juliet’s love, a key phrase he says is, “These violent delights have violent ends/ And in their triumph die, like fire and powder”(Shakespeare 2.6.9-10).
While Romeo was known for his impulsiveness, it didn 't go to help him out later on. Romeo had been convinced to sneak into the Capulet 's party, and would then lock eyes with a girl that he will forever be in love with. An analysis of Romeo’s character in the play Romeo and Juliet, reveals that his fatal flaw was his impulsiveness due to him falling in love and marrying Juliet, becoming a murder after he had killed Tybalt and Paris, and him killing himself. One reason why Romeo was impulsive was because he had fallen in love with Juliet at first sight.
Juliet was already an emotional person but she was exceptionally emotional at this time from the death of Tybalt. Juliet had doubts of the marriage because “[she had] no joy of this contract tonight: it [was] too rash, too unadvised, too sudden; too like the lightning, which doth cease to be ere one can say "It lightens"” but she continued on with the plans showing how reckless her thinking
We know all of this is happening because of the juice. Oberon, Titania 's husband, started to feel guilty. He ended up putting the juice in her eyes again and stays with her for when she wakes up (Shakespeare IV. I. 29-53).
Romeo 's “love” for Juliet and is not love. Romeo only marries Juliet to get over Rosaline. In fact, the only reason he goes to the party where he meets Juliet is because he thinks that Rosaline might be there. This quote from shows that Romeo is still in love with Rosaline the day he meets Juliet. Romeo says, “Bid a sick man in sadness make his will.
Their relationship’s fast pace is obvious since they never met before the Capulet party and the whole play ended in four days. The idea of love at first sight could be debated as well because fate and soul mates are something some people don’t believe in. It is also believed that loving someone at first glance is based on appearances since you don’t know anything about them besides their looks and is not genuine love. Infatuation can be easily mistaken as love since it is an intense, but short lived need for each other. Romeo and Juliet fell in “love” at the party, declare their undenying love on the same night, get married the next day, and are having sex on their fourth day since knowing each other.
Romeo agrees to go and sees Juliet, Lord Capulet’s daughter and falls in love instantly with “her true beauty” (Shakespeare. I.v.51) and pulls her into the other room where they kiss. This meeting results in a prolonged love affair which springs a whole event of scandal including Juliet’s push back to marry Paris, but ultimately it results in Romeo and Juliet’s
The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is about Romeo, a Montague, falls in love with Juliet, a Capulet, and they cannot be together because their families have a long-lasting family feud. Before everyone reads Romeo and Juliet, they think that Romeo and Juliet are in love from the beginning of the story. However, Romeo is sad and heartbroken because Rosaline didn’t want to be his lover. While Romeo is sad, Mercutio, the cousin of the prince, grows in strength and happiness. Their foil is the more Romeo is sad, the more Mercutio is joyful and tries to make Romeo happier.
When Romeo first sees her, he became so entranced into her looks that he forgets all about his previous lover Rosaline who he was head over heels for. Romeo says to a serving man, O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiop 's ear— Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.
First of all, Romeo’s major flaw is his rashness towards certain aspects of life such as love, because one day he is in love with Rosaline, and the next day he is in love with Juliet. In “Act 1, Scene 2”, Romeo complains how life would be meaningless without Rosaline and that he will kill himself: “When the devout religion of mine eye Maintain such falsehood, then turn tears to fires; And these who, often drowned, could never die, Transparent heretics, be burnt for liars. One fairer than my love! the all-seeing sun Ne’er saw her match since first the world begun.” (Shakespeare 23).
"…When confronted with stressful or emotional decisions, [teenagers] are more likely to act impulsively, on instinct, without fully understanding or analyzing the consequences of their actions" (Dr. David Fassler). Teenagers, past and present, are known for making spontaneous and sometimes senseless decisions. Romeo from the play “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare is no different. Romeo is a teenager who makes numerous impulsive decisions that have disastrous consequences.
The impulse decisions made by Romeo and Juliet and the actions displayed for their “love” are emotionally charged and are based on initial feelings, therefore, their love is not true. Romeo and Juliet both have affection for each other, but it is truly only from the physical appearances they base their love on. When Romeo sees Juliet for the first time at the Capulet party, the first thought he had was that he loved her. True love isn’t based on just looks and looks were the only thing that Romeo could see at that point. When Romeo asked Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet, Friar says “Young men’s love then lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes,” (Act 2, Scene 3).
