Romeo and Juliet’s relationship has often been romanticized as being authentic while his love for Rosaline has been depicted as being a superficial infatuation. This is what many die-hard romantics want to believe; however, the text represents Romeo’s love for Rosaline as a genuine one—at least on Romeo’s part. In the beginning of the play, Romeo lashes out at love’s cruelty as do many heartbroken individuals. In Act I Scene I, the depressed Romeo describes love as a deadly poison, a smoke, a swollen sea, a madness, and a choking gall. When he describes love as a “smoke,” this evokes images of a choking black cloud of doom. Everyone who has tasted the bitterness of love knows how gloomy the world feels. Romeo’s hurt stems from authentic feelings

In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Romeo cannot control his emotions which leads to Romeo moving on from Rosaline and on to Juliet too fast. He says he loves Rosaline and when she denies him of his love, Romeo goes into an emotional breakdown; but when he meets Juliet he forgets all about Rosaline and is instantly in love with Juliet. When Mercurio and Romeo are talking about Romeo’s recent heartbreak, Romeo claims “[he] has lost [himself]” (Shakespeare 1.1 ll. 205) and that, “[he] was not [there]” (1.1 ll. 205).

In the first two scenes of Romeo and Juliet, we see Romeo is heartbroken over Rosaline, his "one true love". I would characterize Romeo as handsome, intelligent, a romantic, but very sensitive. Romeo is depressed and sad about Rosaline. He goes on and on about how she doesn't love him and how love is a painful experience. Even Lord Montague is concerned because he said, " Many a morning hath he there been seen, With tears augmenting the fresh morning's dew, Adding to clouds more clouds with her deep sighs... The shady curtains from Aurora's bed, Away from light steals home my heavy son, And private in his chambers pens himself, Shuts up his windows, locks fair daylight out, And makes
Act 4 scene 5 gears the audience up for the catastrophe of the death of Romeo and Juliet. Juliet has just taken the vial of Friar Laurence’s potion and is in an almost dead state. The grief demonstrated by her family is intensified with her father’s personification of death. Capulet describes, “Death lies on her like an untimely frost / Upon the sweetest flower of the field” (4.5.28-29). Shakespeare describes Death like a human or personifies Death to dramatize the moment. In this scene, the personification of Death shows the audience her father’s deep grief for his daughter. He goes on to describe Death as Juliet’s husband who has taken her from him allowing us to feel his grief and almost imagine Death taking Juliet away (4.5.36-40). This
While Romeo was known for his impulsiveness, it didn 't go to help him out later on. Romeo had been convinced to sneak into the Capulet 's party, and would then lock eyes with a girl that he will forever be in love with. An analysis of Romeo’s character in the play Romeo and Juliet, reveals that his fatal flaw was his impulsiveness due to him falling in love and marrying Juliet, becoming a murder after he had killed Tybalt and Paris, and him killing himself.
One of the main types of love shown in Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet is Unrequited love. In act one scene one of Romeo And Juliet, Romeo states, “ Out of her favor, where I am in love.” Romeo is talking to Benvolio about how Rosaline doesn’t love him, and in turn he is sad. This is Unrequited love because the love between Romeo and Rosaline is not mutual. On lines 213-215 of act one scene one Romeo states, “ She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow do I live dead that live to tell it now.” Rosaline has sworn not to love, so Romeo claims this has left him feeling dead.
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. When he says this, he means that no matter how much he loves her, she is not interested and does not love him back. This gives insight
1. Shakespeare was truthful and accurate in the play Romeo and Juliet. During the time of the play, there was a bubonic plague. This plague was killing millions of people, destroying families, and causing there to be many fights amongst families of wealth. During the final Scene of the play Friar Lawrence caught the plague and he ended up not being able to transfer Romeo a message about the faked death of Juliet. As Friar John states in the play, “I could not send it—here it is again—,” Friar John also states, “So fearful were they of infection.” These quotes from Friar John show that Shakespeare's incorporation of the events going on at that time such as the bubonic plague were clearly accurate and related closely to what was going on outside
In Romeo and Juliet, it was Rosaline’s unrequited love that caused Romeo to act impulsively. After Romeo’s encounter with Juliet in Capulet’s orchard, Friar Lawrence foreshadows that Romeo never really loved Rosaline at all and that it was just naivety. “Young men’s love then lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.” (II.iii.67-68)
