The audience is able to see both of the lovers, but Juliet is not aware of Romeo’s presence. Both of them are insecure about the relationship. For once Juliet does not feel completely ready it is “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden” and “too like the lightning, which doth cease to be ere one can say ‘It lightens’.” (Act 2 Scene 2) for her. Juliet feels too overwhelmed by the sudden affection which is just like a lightning stroke. Yet Shakespeare displays an emancipatory access to woman kind, portrayed as Juliet, due to the reason that she stands up for her own created problems and in the long run matures as a self-confident woman.
“Immediately we do exile him hence. I have an interest in your hate’s proceeding” (Act iii scene 3).Romeo had just married Juliet, and he got banished because he killed Tybalt ,his joyfulness ended quickly because of his actions. Family and the things we love can be affected based on our actions, that is why we should be careful on how we act because an action that seems harmless may harm you and affect you in the over time.

Romeo and Juliet is a heart wrenching tragedy written by William Shakespeare. Love, anger, heartbreak, and sadness are all emotions displayed within this play. Juliet, a young woman, experiences love for the first time. She fears that her love for a particular young man, Romeo, and his love for her will not be accepted by her family. They are star crossed lovers, born to two rival families in Verona, the Capulets and the Montagues.
In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt is responsible for his own death because he has a history of killing, he has an attitude that instigates on problems, and he has grudges against Romeo. Tybalt is at fault for his own death because he has killed other people before. Romeo exclaims to Tybalt, after Tybalt killed Mercutio, “He’s alive and victorious, and Mercutio’s dead?” (3.1.84). In this quote, Romeo is wailing that a great person was just killed by Tybalt. He thinks Tybalt shouldn’t be alive
The Prince exclaims, “See what a scourge is laid upon your hate,” (Act Ⅴ, scene 3, Line 302). Although it is never said when or how the hate between the families came about, it has been long enough for both Romeo and Juliet to have been raised thinking the other family was evil.

When Juliet discovers the truth she exclaims, “My only love, sprung from my only hate.

Juliet says, “My only love, sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me, that I must love a loathed enemy,” (1.5.136-140), after realizing she has fallen in love with Romeo, a Montague. The feuding of their families does not allow Romeo and Juliet to be with one another, but in the end, their love is what eventually brings the feuding to end. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the nature of Romeo and Juliet’s love is what leads to a paradigm changing tragedy.
Romeo and Juliet: Love or Lust? Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy composed by the English writer, playwright, and actor, William Shakespeare.

Romeo and Juliet are not examples of true love because they were too immature, too problematic, and they had been experiencing only a shallow attraction toward one another. The first reason that Romeo and Juliet are not in love due to the fact that they are too childish to fully understand what love is.

The two young lovers are “star-crossed lovers who take their life” because they care about each other very deeply and their love is doomed by fate as they are not allowed to be with one another due to the family feud between the Montague’s and the Capulet’s who will avert them from being with one another.

Sadly, things turn out for the worse as the two characters, due to misunderstandings and ill-timed events end up killing themselves.

Friar Lawrence is stating that a higher power, in this case, fate has ruined their plan. We know that Friar Lawrence is talking about fate when he says that they cannot contradict this power. According to this play you cannot contradict fate, it always has it’s way in the end, whether we know it or not.
