When Romeo fell in love with Juliet he had no idea what her name was. He was blinded by her beautiful looks that he missed the important fact that she was a Capulet. Romeo does not even learn who she is until it’s too late. He learns the name of Juliet Capulet after they have fallen for one another and kissed not once but twice. Romeo asks a question about the way he feels “Did my heart love till now?”
The Immaturity of Romeo and Juliet Immaturity can spread throughout things and people creating problems for the present and future. Similarly, Romeo and Juliet not only shows the development of love, but the loss of maturity that leads to tragedy. People develop maturity, but the amount of immaturity makes the process go backwards. From Romeo and Juliet’s fast evolving relationship to the hate between the two families, and the lack of thought in different characters is recurrent throughout the story. Therefore,the theme of Romeo and Juliet evolves around the idea of immaturity.
In Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is constantly overwhelmed by his emotions and does not think rationally. At the beginning of the play, Romeo is played by one sided love for Rosaline (Shakespeare I, i, 232). Romeo is so infatuated by Rosaline that he has sunk into a deep depression. Adriana Galvan notes that the teenage is responsive to the environment and this shows in Romeos despondent reaction to Rosaline not loving him back. Later in Act I, Romeo meets Juliet and immediately falls in love with her calling her a “Holy shrine” and kissing her moments into their first meeting (Shakespeare I, v, 93).
And in my temper soft’ned valor’s steel!” (3.1.115-117). In this quote, Romeo is expressing how Juliet’s beauty weakened him. He feels almost a hatred towards her for making him cowardly and not able to save Mercutio’s life. Since being strong is an expected characteristic of men, Romeo feels that the absence of his bravery is to blame for the tragedy.
Love is such an extraordinary and unpredictable aspect of human life. In William Shakespeare 's “Romeo and Juliet,” two characters of youth, who happen be born and raised in enemy families, fall in love with each other. This supposed love leads to a horrible fate for the young Romeo and Juliet and many others. They fall in a great struggle to share their lives together while the world around the begins to fall apart. But is this love even worth it?
If he would have just swallowed his pride and anger then he would still be walking and maybe even helping the two lovers in the story find a happy ending. For the most part, Mercutio could maybe have evaded his death, or at least gotten more time, just by having less of an attitude. All things considered, Mercutio’s death had many different reasons and people to blame for. If Benvolio and he hadn’t pushed Romeo in to so much, if Romeo hadn’t fallen in love with Juliet, or if Mercutio would have listened to Benvolio, then maybe the brazen teenager would have lived. The conclusion is, that Mercutio’s death was tragic, but did help the story flow and build up into one of the most tragic love story’s in
One way Romeo’s thoughtlessness and immaturity causes the tragedy to occur is through his simplistic feelings of love. When Romeo is first introduced in the play he is a depressed and lovesick boy suffering from unrequited love. He is madly in love with Rosaline, a girl whom has sworn to live in chastity. Romeo barely knows Rosaline, but he has an infatuation with her that he calls love. Romeo exclaims to Benvolio, “Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health,/ Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!/
Micro: Hamlet uses a hyperbole to express the magnitude of his feelings for Ophelia. By doing so the reader has a definite answer to the question of whether their love was ever real. To be able to hide such an intense feeling meant that Hamlet was significantly psychologically damaged to the point of being in a state of disconnect and anger. The readers get a sense of his pain as he makes this grand confession and the regret he feels due to rejecting her was clearly evident.
The lack of guidance from the parents is shown in the play. Romeo has been heart broken by Rosaline and then instantly falls in love with Juliet. It is right after this experience of “love at first sight”, so to speak, that Romeo wants to marry Juliet.
First of all, Romeo’s major flaw is his rashness towards certain aspects of life such as love, because one day he is in love with Rosaline, and the next day he is in love with Juliet. In “Act 1, Scene 2”, Romeo complains how life would be meaningless without Rosaline and that he will kill himself: “When the devout religion of mine eye Maintain such falsehood, then turn tears to fires; And these who, often drowned, could never die, Transparent heretics, be burnt for liars. One fairer than my love! the all-seeing sun Ne’er saw her match since first the world begun.” (Shakespeare 23).
All teenage boys make very rash and bad decisions when under a lot of pressure that will eventually get them into trouble. In William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet the main protagonist Romeo is in one of those situations, only the stakes are much higher and instead of getting in trouble the end result is the worst punishment possible... Death for him and his lover Juliet. Romeo is solely responsible for the death of himself and Juliet due to his immaturity fickleness and rash decisions. One of the many reasons that show Romeos lack of maturity and also his bad decision making is when he is talking to Friar Lawrence.
If a brain is not fully developed until mid-twenties, how could somebody who is only thirteen expected to think through her actions? Romeo and Juliet are only young, therefore there brains are not as developed to think of consequences. With their not quite as devloped brains, could Romeo and Juliet have not a romance, but an addiction to one another? Juliet is only thirteen, just entering the teens. This means her brain is not mature yet.
"…When confronted with stressful or emotional decisions, [teenagers] are more likely to act impulsively, on instinct, without fully understanding or analyzing the consequences of their actions" (Dr. David Fassler). Teenagers, past and present, are known for making spontaneous and sometimes senseless decisions. Romeo from the play “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare is no different. Romeo is a teenager who makes numerous impulsive decisions that have disastrous consequences.
In the play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, the two teenage lovers fell for each other, however, Romeo’s flaw led to their death. Romeo’s flaw was his impulsiveness and urge to jump to conclusions. He acted upon himself to commit suicide rather than letting fate take its path to eventually lead them to be future lovers. Furthermore, Romeo had a big impact on their deaths because of his way of believing he would be able to fix the problem rather than putting it in fates hands. He acts on emotion instead of reason.
