The pair truly love each other because they are willing to marriage. Romeo and Juliet were forbidden to even be friends/know each other, but that didn 't stop them. In Act ll, scene ll, Juliet states, “Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow. (2.2.144)” Juliet ask
An example of her selflessness can be seen when she says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou will not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”, where her desperation and readiness to lose her own titles and name to be with Romeo prove that what she is after is love, and not his name or the prestige that comes with it. Furthermore, Juliet is a young and extremely volatile character, and this is never better demonstrated than in this scene, where Juliet falls in love with Romeo instantly and all but takes her marriage vows in the following 30 minutes. However, all of a sudden, Juliet tells Romeo that she finds the contract “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden”, which means Juliet suddenly has hesitations about their love, and wishes for some time to go by and ensure that it will last. Next, when they are in the process of saying their goodbyes, Juliet expresses her wish to have him gone, “And yet no farther than a wanton’s bird.”, which shows how much she wishes for his proximity, though she then says a few lines farther down that “(Juliet) should kill thee with much cherishing” with which she means that she cherishes him so that she could metaphorically kill him, and is worried her love will cause him troubles. This could cause the audience to begin to wonder whether their wish for mutual
Friar Lawrence agrees to do so because he believes that their love may turn the two families hatred for each other into love. He says that " 'For this alliance so happy prove/ To turn your households ' rancor to pure love '". After Romeo kills Tybalt he is sentenced to banishment. He knows Juliet is hurting from this and threatens to hurt himself, to which Friar Lawrence tells him to stop and be rational. Had he let Romeo go on, the story could have ended right then.
By the use of figurative language. Juliet talks about how, things are happing so quickly at this point that Juliet remarks that she fell in love with Romeo before she found out that he was a Montague and her enemy. Such as “My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me.
Soliloquy is used in many quotes from the topic love and hate. The first quote that uses soliloquy is “O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse they name, or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet.” This is when Juliet realized that Romeo is the only son of the enemy Montague in act 2, scene 2. The quote is representing love and also said while Romeo was listening to Juliet without her knowing. This uses soliloquy because the speaker, Juliet didn’t know that there was Romeo listening to her so she was speaking to herself with nobody in the front.
One character trait that’s highlighted through Tybalt is Romeo’s complete awe and love for Juliet. While Romeo is single-mindedly focused on love, Tybalt is more focused on pride. When Romeo first meets Juliet he completely disregards their family fued and states, “I take thee at thy word. Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptized; Henceforth I never will be Romeo.” (II, ii, 49-51) Romeo is completely giving up his pride, his family name, and surrendering so he can love Juliet. Tybalt highlights this by disregarding anything that comes in the way of
In the beginning of the play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo predicts his own fate as his “mind misgives” (1.4 104). The two young lovers are “star-crossed lovers who take their life” because they care about each other very deeply and their love is doomed by fate as they are not allowed to be with one another due to the family feud between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s who will avert them from being with one another. This creates a barrier to their happiness because of their
Romeo and Juliet both discuss their love, Romeo from the garden and Juliet from her window. The exchange vows of love and devise a plan to be married in secret. Romeo’s heart could not accept “no” as an answer simply because both families forbade this interaction. Instead, his love for Juliet continued to drive through the barriers built by the family feud. Similarly, in Destino, when the male and female characters encounter each other, they both attempt to run toward one another.
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
