As their love began with simply being attracted to one another; it mutated into something so intense, that it would later destroy themselves and others in the process. Romeo & Juliet articulates the potency of love and how it is able cause destruction to everyone. Their bond depicts intimate love for each other, but in the end, it seemed like it was doomed from the very start. Separation was the key factor where love was evoked in Romeo & Juliet. Scenes in the play were able to
This is the scene where she finds out Romeo has killed Tybalt and she does not know whether to hate him or to be happy and love him that he was not killed in the fight. Another scene that shows the situations Juliet is put in is in act 3, scene 5 when Juliet does not know whether to feel hatred toward her dad for marrying her off to someone she does not love or to feel love towards him because she knows he did it out of his love for her. Romeo and Juliet’s characters demonstrating this contrast is very important to the play as a whole because it shows how they have to struggle with the pressures of their family’s and society's expectations that they can't keep up with. These expectations are so impossible for them to keep up with, that it leads to both of the character’s tragic demise. Not only are Romeo and Juliet’s deaths due to impossible expectations they face, but also due to them no longer wanting to have to fight between their emotions of love and hate, when they just want to be
Being separated for Romeo and Juliet only makes their connection fow stronger. 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.
In Shakespeare 's Romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, show they are in love in many ways, such as the fact that they are willing to die for each other. Romeo demonstrates part of this willingness when he says, “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight. Let’s see for means. O mischief, thou art swift to enter the thoughts of desperate men!” (5.1.36-38). As a result of saying this, Romeo shows us that he is looking for a way to die in order to join Juliet in death, even though the audience is shown she is not really dead.
Juliet’s soliloquy is significant in this scene because that is where, Shakespeare breaks the tradition for soliloquies, which are usually speeches where a character shares their inner thoughts only with the audience. However, Romeo overhears Juliet's soliloquy, making an invasion, on one hand, but it also serves as a reminder of their intimacy, because Juliet both allows and cherishes Romeo's interruption, reminding the audience how honest and open the two are with each other, and how if they can trust anyone, then it would be each other. That holds the audience’s attention because their love is not traditional, where they would take a while to get used to each other, but instead they truly listen and understand each
He speaks in a poetic way. He digs deep into himself and brings out the emotions out. Romeo loves Juliet very much he thinks that she is very beautiful. In Act 1 Scene 5, when Romeo was at Lord Capulet 's party, he says “O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!” According to me in this situation, Romeo means that Juliet is so beautiful that she shines more than the torches. In act 1 scene 5 line 43-44 “It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night, like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear”.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the couple absolutely demonstrates true love for one another. This is proven through Romeo and Juliet in the ending who has taken their life because they truly loved each other, Romeo and Juliet 's relationship difficulties because of Montagues and Capulets, and when Romeo killed Tybalt and was sent to exile but when Romeo hears about Juliet’s death, he went back to see Juliet one last time. True love has been shown in many romantic plays and books, however, in the play of Romeo and Juliet, true love is blind. The love that Romeo and Juliet shared was true as it has blinded them from the consequences of death. In the final stages of the play, Romeo drinks poison when he finds juliet dead and right after the death of Romeo, Juliet wakes up from her sleep, the first thing that she does is ask where Romeo is.
In this sense one can state that Shakespeare writes his masterpiece Romeo and Juliet just to show the reader anger as a passive aggressive nature. Image of Anger as passive aggressive force is portrayed by the Capulets and the Montagues who proclaim their hatred to each other throughout the play. Shakespeare confirms that out of love, one can destroy his/her lover, and out of anger as well, one can determine his/her destiny. That is exactly what happened in Romeo and Juliet when the two feuding families unwillingly determine the destiny of their children's love affair that ends up with nothing but the death of Romeo and
The reason for deviating from the sequence mentioned, is because Shakespeare wanted to speed up the plot a bit. In this way young lovers become apt to evade part of the process of courtship, displacing the story, which is initially focused on the development of their relationship, to a context mainly focused on their decision to marry. In the final scene of suicide, there is a contradiction in the link with the Catholic religion, because suicides are considered by this as a sin that must be punished in hell, although those who resort to these in order to be with their lover become creditors to paradise, where they will be accompanied by their lover. This is how the love between Romeo and Juliet tends to be more platonic than religious. Another point to consider is the consummation of love cited in the original writing; Even though the love between the two was passionate, the couple only consummates their love after they are married, something that prevents them from losing the sympathy of the public.
Relationships between Romeo, Juliet and the Friar are some of the most potent and detailed in Romeo and Juliet. The story would be completely different without them. Another way that fate has contributed to the overall depth and genius of this story, is how the reader interprets the word. Fate also means the end or death of someone, and Romeo and Juliet’s fate has forever changed the lives of the Montagues and Capulets, disintegrating their rivalry. Change is one of the big themes in Romeo and Juliet, and fate plays right into that theme making it very noticeable and potent.
