How Juliet’s language shows her love for Romeo The 1694 play Romeo and Juliet introduced to the world the love story of two of litterature’s most prominent historical star crossed lovers. The two characters in question are Romeo and Juliet, whose love overthrows the balance of their world. Before meeting Romeo in Act 1, scene 5, Juliet appears to be an intelligent child, mature beyond her years and devoted to her family. This situation is completely overturned once Romeo, her first true love, enters the seemingly perfect picture that is her life. Shakespeare communicates the love that Juliet possesses for Romeo wonderfully with the use of distinct language techniques.
This quote proves that specifically Romeo’s love for Juliet was based on her looks rather then her personality and relationships that start like that are bound to end.

We see this when Romeo and Juliet love each others looks rather than personalities, when Romeo loves juliet because his ego needs a boost and when Juliet loves romeo because she can not have him.

Through this Shakespeare is conveying that Juilet is so madly in love with Romeo even though his family, the Montegues, are Juilet’s family, the Capulets, greatest enemy.

Juliet explains, “Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband?/ ah, poor my lord, what tongue shall smooth thy name/ when I thy three-hours wife, have mangled it?/ But wherefore, villian, didst thou kill my cousin? That villain cousin would have killed my husband”. (3.2.97-101) By “ah, poor my lord, what tongue shall smooth thy name/ when I thy three-hours wife, have mangled it?” Juliet is saying Ah, my poor husband, who will clear your name when I have been agreeing with my family and saying awful
During the time era of Romeo and Juliet, females were supposed to be proper and could not use informal words such as “thou” and “thee.” Juliet’s use of the word “thou” shows that she doesn’t believe in a patriarchy and wants her role in their relationship to be equal.

Romeo and Juliet”: True Love Romeo and Juliet is known as one of the most romantic love stories in literary history, furthuring this point is the true love and sincerity between Romeo and Juliet which is justified by religious imagery and language, the overall theme of fate, along with solemn tone regarding love found in the text. Throughout the play, Shakespeare consistently makes use of religious imagery and language. It is used to display how their love is “holy” and “pure”, and does not allow for it to be dismissed. The first conversation between Romeo and Juliet consisted of a shared sonnet, which was laced with heavy use of religious vocabulary. In the text, Romeo metaphorically considered himself to be a pilgrim approaching Juliet’s hand, a holy shrine, which he was unworthy of.
Romeo and Juliet’s love is immoderate, resulting it to being a virtue, not a vice. Friar is referring to Romeo that when life gives you good things, use it for the good, and that Romeo and Juliet’s fate would not happen if the two did not continue with their foolishness. Later on in the second scene of Act II, Juliet brings up how she thinks her and Romeo are moving too fast and everything is too sudden. Because of that, she says how she believes their love is foolish. There is a time where Juliet asks the nurse who Romeo was and the Nurse responds that he is a Montague.

In conclusion, Juliet’s heart desired Romeo, even if that meant faking her death and fleeing her home, never to return. Throughout the play, Shakespeare suggested that it was better for Romeo and Juliet to follow their heart’s desires, even if it wasn't

Hatred drove Romeo and Juliet to be secretive, lie, communicate poorly, and to not think clearly. The fear of showing some hope that the hatred is gone influenced a friar to do some bad things. Friar Laurence was the one who secretly married Juliet but for the reason that it might put an end to the ancient feud; however, he lacked good judgment during this time.
