Juliet says to Romeo not to swear by his love for her because she feels there relationship is moving to fast, “Well do not swear , although I joy in thee, I have no joy of this contract tonight. It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden, too like lightning.” (2.2.116-119) In the story this is showing that Juliet doesn't want to make any promises or swear by their love for each other, and she has not done enough thinking
Romeo and Juliet is a play about star-crossed lovers. Romeo is apart of a high class Montague family; their rival is the Capulet family. Romeo falls in love with the daughter of Lord Capulet. They want to get married but they know that this will not be approved between their family feud. This is why they secretly ask Friar Laurence to marry them in secret.
The most important theme depicted in Acts one and two in Romeo and Juliet is that of love. In the prologue Shakespeare introduces Romeo and Juliet as, “A pair of star-cross’d lovers” whose love was destined for destruction. For Romeo, love is complicated in nature because of his shift of emotions from one girl to another. Once he discovers his new love in Act II, Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden love is the driving force behind their actions and the events that take place. The first example of love takes place in Act I when Romeo is lovesick and acting strange according to his friends and family.
In Romeo and Juliet, the Shakespearean tragedy, it is proved that it is not. Why? Juliet was the rebound to Romeo’s other love, Rosaline, they both take actions that show they’re immature, and Romeo is already in ‘love’ with Juliet before he gets to know her, and it shows Romeo is only attracted to Juliet for her looks not her actual self. In Romeo and Juliet they were not in love; Romeo was in love with another beautiful lady named Rosaline, and Juliet was just his rebound. Romeo was not aware of Juliet 's existence until he went to a party.
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.
Romeo was deeply in love with Rosaline and wanted to be with her and get married. “For beauty starved with her severity…She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair: She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow…” (Romeo and Juliet 1.1.210-214) Romeo thought that Rosaline was everything he was looking for. Rosaline on the other hand did not care for Romeo, or from what the play tells us. Romeo moved on past Rosaline at a party the Capulets were throwing. If Romeo had not moved onto Juliet many, if not all, characters would have still been alive.
“Falling too fast only ends you up with love that won’t last” (Cecily Morgan). In Act Two, Scene Two of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Juliet expresses her initial feelings about her love for Romeo after their first encounter at the Capulets’ party. The purpose of Juliet’s monologue is to convey that love changes an individual’s character and the conception of love at first sight is questionable. Love is a powerful idea that can sway personalities in order to capture the attention of prospective mates. For example, Juliet tells Romeo how her words from earlier that night cause her to blush and she says that she will gladly, “dwell on form… deny / What I have spoke: but farewell compliment!” (2.2.92-93).
In Midsummer Night's Dream Shakespeare is saying that love isn't always easy and some people might want to stop you from loving someone. But if that person is your true love you should pursue them no matter what. There are three main ways he shows this in the play. For example when Eqeus tells Hermia that she can't marry Lysander, but they get married anyway. Another example is when Demetrius doesn't love Helena but Demetrius is Helena's true love so she keeps on pursuing him and they end up together.
Romeo and Juliet are not in love with each other because just a day before they met, he felt heartbroken because of a girl named Rosaline who didn 't love him, he pressures Juliet to profess her love to him, and after just barely meeting, they both agree to get married. At the beginning of this popular Shakespeare play, Romeo claims to be in love with a girl named Rosaline. He cries for days about her before he meets Juliet because she rejected his love for her. When Romeo first appears in the play, he appears to be too distracted with his heartache from Rosaline’s disenchantment of Romeo’s affection. His dwelling over his “love [for Rosaline], feel no love...”(Shakespeare, Act I, line:177) seems to take up all his attention, making him only want to talk about how glum he is rather than the carnage of the town after the fight between the Montagues and Capulets that happened just moments prior to his arrival.
Romeo compares his lips to “two blushing pilgrims” and Juliet as a “Holy Shrine”. This kind of imagery is in constant in this scene as Romeo woos Juliet. Romeo and Juliet also speaks to each other in sonnets for this part. This shows that Romeo is in love with Juliet. This shows that this is not like the love that Romeo had for Rosalind which seemed to be a silly crush.
