Romeo and Juliet is a classic romance story by William Shakespeare about two star-crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, falling in love. Nevertheless, their two families have a vendetta against each other, making it difficult for Romeo and Juliet to ever truly be together. This romantic set-up has been used multiple times after Shakespeare, such as West Side Story. The story itself has very romantic and light-hearted moments, but a lot of issues that aren’t paid as much attention to can be calamitous. Despite a lot of the play exploring the positives and the beauty of love and romance, the real lessons from the story are found in the primitive and belligerent nature of the characters.
In Romeo and Juliet, there are many complex characters that make this play more dramatic and interesting. Romeo is clearly one example of a complex character, where his romanticism blurs his sense of reality. An example of where this is seen during the play is when he falls for Juliet even though he declares that there is no one better than the woman he previously loved, Rosaline. Another example is when Romeo realizes that because of how he has lost his sense of reality, he has let his friend Mercutio die to one of their enemies: Tybalt. These two instances show how complex a character Romeo is and this shows how people in the real world can be similar to him by being complex and difficult to understand.
Also, in the prologue, it states that their love was "The fearful passage of their death" (Prologue.9). Both of these quotes show us that the love of these two was destined to end tragically. The masquerade party was, above all, the most important event. The fact that Romeo was wearing a mask with his face hidden, allowed Juliet to fall in love with him before she knew his identity. If Juliet had known who Romeo was, she probably would not have fallen in love with him.

Firstly, Juliet’s soliloquy about Romeo and the obstacles in their relationship clearly demonstrates her love for him. This intense and romantically centered soliloquy that Juliet exclaims on her balcony shows a mixture of feelings including worrisome indecision, as well as passionate love. Romeo is the principal subject, and this shows us that Juliet most probably already harbors deep feelings for him. The second time she speaks, Juliet says “Oh Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?” Here one can also see the use of a rhetorical question.
