Mercutio observes that something has made Romeo much happier, and it is indeed Romeo’s previous encounters with Juliet that have created this effect of increased contentment. Love has been found to generate happiness within Juliet as well, which she poetically describes. Romeo has previously had a romantic dance and conversation with his new acquaintance, Juliet, at the Capulet’s party, and snuck back to Juliet’s balcony so he could further confess his love for her. Juliet reveals that she, too, shares these feelings for Romeo, and tries to illustrate how vivid her devotion is: “My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep. The more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite” (2.2.140-142).
These two characters wanted the best for the newlywed couple; however, both contributed to the tragic ending of Romeo and Juliet, making some of their guidance useful and some of it useless. The Friar genuinely cared about Romeo, as he tried to provide the best advice to the young man. Prior to their marriage, Friar Laurence urged Romeo to be more cautious with his feelings, considering that he fell out of love with Rosaline so quickly. “Holy Saint
Although Capulet may be harsh at times, he does love Juliet and wants the best for her. Capulet is a good father because he tried to pick a good husband for Juliet. Capulet wanted what was best for Juliet. Even though she may not have wanted to marry Paris, Capulet knew that he would be a
The Friar was reluctant at first but decides, “‘In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; For this alliance may happy prove To turn your households rancor to pure love’” (2.3 97-100). With allowing Romeo and Juliet to get married without either of their parents permission, Romeo and Juliet only became closer, which became a problem when Romeo was banished to Mantua. If Friar Lawrence had told the two
He says “And so, good Capulet, -- which name I tender as dearly as my own” (A3.S1). This shows how, despite everything Tybalt has said about Romeo, the Montagues, and the hatred he has for their family name Romeo still treats him as family simply because he has the same last name as his wife. In addition Juliet is arranged to marry County Paris because of his good name and his good reputation and not because of who he really is, which contradicts the point Shakespeare makes when he shows that both Juliet and Romeo don’t care about each other's last names because it does show that a name defines a person and their
Even if Lord Capulet thought that Romeo was not going to cause any problems he should have still kicked Romeo out, because he was not invited. Lord Capulet should have been suspicious of how Romeo discovered the party. He wanted to avoid making a scene at his party, but he just had to go up and ask him to leave, fighting was not the only way to get rid of Romeo. Juliet 's father 's second biggest mistake was pressuring Juliet into marrying Paris. At first he wanted Paris to woo her, but after Tybalt was killed he wanted to rush her into marrying Paris to cheer her up.
For the majority of the novel, Sir Percy hides his true self from Marguerite because he is afraid that she will not understand his missions to rescue French nobility, as she is a Republican. Percy finally reveals his true self to Marguerite at the end of the novel when he knows that he can trust her. After Marguerite rushes to France to try to save him, Sir Percy realizes that her loyalties lie with him and tells Marguerite that he “should have trusted [her] as [she] deserved to be trusted” (259). Through saying these words, Percy accepts Marguerite as his equal and acknowledges her right to know the truth. Percy then calls Marguerite “sweetheart”, which he would never have done earlier in the novel.
Juliet told the Nurse about her love for Romeo and how they were going to get married against their parents wishes, and the Nurse helped her by going to talk to him about their wedding. She said “Is your man trustworthy? Did you never hear it said “Two can keep a secret if one doesn’t know it”?” (2.4 205-206). This reveals the Nurse’s loyalty to keeping Juliet’s secrets. She wants to make sure that Romeo’s men will keep a secret because she will keep Juliet’s secret but it is difficult to if someone else spills the beans.
Shakespeare’s Different Types of Love William Shakespeare’s play “Romeo and Juliet” is considered one of the most popular love plays of all time. In the play, Shakespeare shows us the different types of love that exist. There are about three types of love that I find the most important. First, we’ll look at the characters Mercutio, Lady Capulet and Paris and see how they love their status and honour. Second, we’re going to see how Shakespeare uses characters Lord and Lady Capulet, as well as the nurse to show us parental love.
