Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is the most famous love story in the English literary tradition. The events of these young lovers contrast hatred and revenge with love and a secret marriage, forcing the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly and die tragically in despair. Mercutio was the loyal, witty, and devoted best friend of Romeo who was neither a Montague or a Capulet which gave an interesting perspective of the young lovers. Mercutio, is the absolute opposite of Romeo, being that he is a quirky skeptic and not at all a die hard romantic that believes love conquers all. With Mercutio being such a skeptic, he mocks love and makes fun of his best friend Romeo when he finds out he has fallen in love with a Capulet; Mercutio states “Romeo, Humors!
An example of her selflessness can be seen when she says “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou will not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”, where her desperation and readiness to lose her own titles and name to be with Romeo prove that what she is after is love, and not his name or the prestige that comes with it. Furthermore, Juliet is a young and extremely volatile character, and this is never better demonstrated than in this scene, where Juliet falls in love with Romeo instantly and all but takes her marriage vows in the following 30 minutes. However, all of a sudden, Juliet tells Romeo that she finds the contract “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden”, which means Juliet suddenly has hesitations about their love, and wishes for some time to go by and ensure that it will last. Next, when they are in the process of saying their goodbyes, Juliet expresses her wish to have him gone, “And yet no farther than a wanton’s bird.”, which shows how much she wishes for his proximity, though she then says a few lines farther down that “(Juliet) should kill thee with much cherishing” with which she means that she cherishes him so that she could metaphorically kill him, and is worried her love will cause him troubles. This could cause the audience to begin to wonder whether their wish for mutual
The Friar detects pure infatuation between Romeo and Juliet as exposed in his commentary to them. The Friar acknowledges Romeo’s quick shifting his infatuation from Rosaline over to Juliet by pointing out, “So soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies / Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.” (A2, S3, L73-74).
First, I believe Friar Laurence is to blame is of how unfaithful he was throughout the story. For example, “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households' rancor to pure love.” (2.3.96-99).
In conclusion, Romeo and Juliet is a story in which love is stronger than hate. The story has many examples where love is stronger than hate. In the end Lord Capulet and Montague end the dispute after Romeo, Juliet, and Paris die. Romeo and Juliet having so much love for each other despite being from families that totally hate each other is the main theme of the story and it is why I think love overpowers hate in Romeo and
