Here Romeo tells Tybalt, that he loves him. Romeo does this with no thought about their last names, he is so in love with Tybalt’s cousin that all of a sudden he forgets about the two family’s bad blood. Friar warns Romeos about rushing into a relationship “Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast” (Shakespeare 847). Friar tells Romeo to take it slow don’t rush things.
He even states his goal. “For this alliance so happy prove / To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (2.3. 91-92). Whether the Friar realizes it or not, he has just done something terrible that only strengthens the bond of these two lovers. This leads to several deaths along the way.
“I conjure thee by Rosaline's bright eyes, By her high forehead and her scarlet lip.” It is subtle here because Mercutio still doesn’t know about Juliet but it is also subtle in the sense that it offers two elements to the scenario: 1) By mentioning Rosaline before the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet, it appears that Shakespeare (through Mercutio) is offering us a conclusion from the Rosaline era. 2) Shakespeare lends an emotional value to the love of Romeo and Juliet by contrasting it through Mercutio’s focus on Rosaline’s physical appearance merely. “Shakespeare uses Mercutio's cynical attitude to distinguish Romeo and Juliet's love as innocent, spiritual, and intense. Because the audience is aware that Mercutio's speech falls on deaf ears, Mercutio's speech illustrates that the Romeo, the loves-truck youth, has begun to mature in his outlook on life and love.”
These attributes are commonly associated with the opposite gender, and Shakespeare uses this exchange of traits to accentuate the irregularity of the situation being represented. The more dramatic features, though, are Romeo’s, and Shakespeare shows how difficult it is for him not to fit in the box of “being a man”. When Tybalt came to kill Romeo, Mercutio interfered, and it ended up costing him his life. Due to the death of his close friend, Romeo grew enraged and decided to “be a man” and get revenge on Tybalt. “O sweet Juliet, / Thy beauty hath made me effeminate /
After Romeo meets his supposed destined lover, Juliet, he returns to talk to his friends Mercutio and Benvolio after planning his marriage. Mercutio notices and points out Romeo’s new, content behavior in contrast to his old, joyless attitude: “Why is not this better than groaning for love? Now art thou sociable, now art thou Romeo, now art thou what thou art - by art as well as by nature” (2.4.90-93).
In Othello, Shakespeare intentionally made emotion a major flaw because it causes the characters to be easily manipulated and may cause the character to lose rational. Shakespeare did this to show strong of an emotion jealously is. Because of jealousy Iago is able to manipulate every character he talks to, whether they were minor like Brabantio, the father of Desdemona, or a major character like Othello, the Moor, the General, and supposedly Hero. If it weren’t for the jealously then the ending of Othello wouldn’t be so tragic. Othello’s jealously overcame Othello’s love, which made him blind to the truth.
What he receives, however, is a new love blooming in his chest for Juliet. As the play unfolds, the audience watches in anticipation as Romeo and Juliet hide their affections from their respective families and try to become the runaway couple. Shakespeare establishes the theme of “Haste makes waste” by making many references to the path their future is heading down and the nature of their love. While Friar says and hints at many things about Romeo and Juliet’s love, a key phrase he says is, “These violent delights have violent ends/ And in their triumph die, like fire and powder”(Shakespeare 2.6.9-10).
In Act 2, scene 3, Friar Laurence says ‘[young men love] not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes. Here Friar Laurence remarks on Romeo’s instincts, tending to change his lovers quickly. To put it simply, Romeo’s desire for a lover has clouded his judgements and he cannot distinguish the difference between true love and mere physical
