The play Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, is viewed as a tragedy which it was intended to be exactly that but also a love story. With this said, this play is a tragedy but definitely not a love story. Romeo and Juliet simply did not love one another for they had only known each other for less than a week, it is impossible for love to form in this short of time. Though, in this play Romeo and Juliet would swear up and down that their love for one another was so pure and true, that they were the ones for each other. There was no love in this relationship, but rather idiocy and lust and maybe even the want for love, but no actual love.
This is false because they may seem to be in love, however, Romeo noticeably only loves Juliet for her looks based off of his comparison of her to celestial objects whilst expressing his love. Moreover, Juliet is uncertain of her feelings throughout their entire story, but because of Romeo’s foolhardy love for Juliet, they progressed with their relationship at too fast of a pace, causing numerous accounts of danger and mistakes, resulting in a flawed relationship that sadly ended in both their deaths. If they were to get to know each other better and take their love more slowly, it would show that they are truly in love, but sadly the course they chose to partake, made for inevitable doom in their

Many people know that William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet was a tragedy about two lovers who can’t be together because of fate. That is most definitely not the way it went. The “star-crossed” lovers make bad, impulsive decisions along the way. Romeo and Juliet are not victims of fate; it was the “star-crossed” lovers’ decisions that led to the tragic end. As the play begins in the city of Verona, two families are in a deep feud.
“The course of true love never did run smooth,” Lysander, a character in the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream once said. Love was not always easy for the characters Hermia, Helena, Demetrius, Lysander, Titania, and Oberon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. One theme this play shows is how love is not easy. Three scenes that show this are when Helena is pleading love from Demetrius, the love triangle between Hermia, Lysander, and Demetrius, and when Lysander did not love Hermia after being put under a spell. Love was hard for Helena in the beginning of the play because the person she loved did not love her back.
Did Romeo feel that Rosaline was less of a challenge, seeing as she was not part of a main family, whereas Juliet would serve as a challenge, coming from the House of Capulet? At first, he seems set on the beautiful Rosaline; a beautiful girl who just so happens to be Juliet’s distant cousin. Rosaline on the other hand, is very much against this idea, since she had sworn off all men and basically treated Romeo like the dirt under her shoe.

Now one questions, is their love real, or is it just infatuation? In the beginning of the play Juliet seems uninterested in loving anyone, and she is even uninterested in marriage, because when Lady Capulet asks Juliet about her opinion of marriage Juliet answers (1.3.68) ``It is an honour that I dream not of´´ we also see how respectful Juliet is towards her mother as she calls her ``madam´´ (1.2.7). As we read in the beginning of the play we clearly see how miserable and moody Romeo is, because his love Rosaline has rejected him. Romeo feels like he will never find love again and he locks himself
