From that image, love took control of his brain, causing him to run back to Juliet. He did not have the free will to make his own decision by being underage and making irrational decisions before, along with acting with his heart and not his mind. Fate, in the form of love, forced him to come back to Juliet, not his own judgment. Later in the act, Romeo’s friends Mercutio and Benvolio, were looking for Romeo after he suddenly left the ball the night before. Benvolio tells Mercutio that Tybalt had sent a letter challenging Romeo to a duel, and that Romeo accepted.
The marriage of Romeo and Juliet, overseen by Friar Lawrence, was the first of many mistakes Friar made. He married Romeo and Juliet for all the wrong reasons. When Romeo first came to Friar and told him that he had found someone else to love, Friar did not think that they should be together. He immediately scolded Romeo for getting over Rosaline to quickly and said that Romeo only loved Juliet for her beauty. “Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here!
True love derives from the initial moment when two people meet and each person instantly knows the destiny of this connection created. In Romeo and Juliet, as Romeo’s eyes fixed on Juliet from across the room, his previous knowledge of love vanished. While approaching her, he allowed his heart to lead him toward a future that would set him up for happiness throughout his life. Forbade by the Montagues, - Romeo’s family - the Capulets - Juliet’s family - had no place in Romeo’s story, until his vision encountered the girl of his dreams. Prior to his meeting with Juliet, Romeo had no idea who Juliet was; nevertheless, both of their hearts’ desires were entangled through love.
Being in love requires two individuals to know each other very well and to have a deep connection. In the play, Romeo and Juliet, two characters feel lust and mistake it for love. I believe that Romeo was attracted to Juliet's appearance but didn't truly love her because he did not know her well enough and had not even got to spend enough time with her. In addition, Romeo proved that his love is false when he immediately goes from one girl, to Juliet. Besides rebounding, the couple shows that they are far too young and foolish for their “love” to be real.
It is clear that Lord Capulet explains that his permission is only part of her decision through the phrase,”my will to her consent is but a part/”. Lord Capulet wants his daughter to be happy and is working really hard at finding her a husband that deserves her. Later on in the play after Lord and Lady Capulet tell their daughter they have gone out of their way and set up a wedding for Paris and Juliet she informes them that she has decied not to marry Paris because she has already married Romeo. Lord Capulet yells “Doth she not give us thanks?/ Is she not proud? Doth she not count her blest,/ Unworthy as she is, that we have wrounght/”(3.4.143-145).
Explain the doubts and fears Juliet expresses even as she realizes that Romeo loves her. Analyze how these doubts/fears create a better understanding of Juliet’s character. Support your ideas with text evidence. As Juliet realizes that Romeo loves her in the balcony scene, she reveals doubts she has about their love. While talking to Romeo, she states “If they do see thee they will murder the,”(II.ii.70).
Romeo clearly subscribes to that belief, as can be seen when he states that his love for Juliet had made him “effeminate.” Once again, however, this statement can be seen as a battle between the private world of love and the public world of honor, duty, and friendship. The Romeo who duels with Tybalt is the Romeo who Mercutio would call the “true” Romeo. The Romeo who sought to avoid confrontation out of concern for his wife is the person Juliet would recognize as her loving Romeo. The word effeminate is applied by the public world of honor upon those things it does not respect. In using the term to describe his present state, Romeo accepts the responsibilities thrust upon him by the social institutions of honor and family
They weren't just looking for escapism from their families, but also Juliet was seeking for a way to escape marrying Paris. When Romeo figures out who Juliet is he says to himself, “My life is in the hands of my enemy.”(1.5.118). This is stating that his life depends on Juliet his worst enemy, which is also kind of stating that this might be his way of escaping from the family brawls. Also Juliet talks about how she is in love with her worst rival. But even before Juliet knew it was Romeo she said, “If he’s married, I think I’ll die rather than marry anyone else.”(1.5.134-135).
(Shakespeare 394) This impulsive decision opens a floodgate to a myriad of foolish decisions. Such as later in the play, after spending the night proclaiming his undying love for Juliet, Romeo comes to the friar looking to have him perform the ceremony to marry Romeo and Juliet. This decision was made without any regard to Juliet or her feelings as well as without the blessing of the parents of either lover. No one was told about this. But still, Romeo urges the friar who is surprised and hesitant: Romeo.
As Romeo confesses, “ROMEO: Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” (Romeo and Juliet,1.5.50-51). Romeo makes it clear that his heart is set on Juliet from just seeing her across the room. Realizing that his eyes have been showing him false information about genuine attraction before he glanced at Juliet.
