Romeo and Juliet is one of the most famous works of the highly regarded Shakespeare. This tragedy tells a tale of two star-crossed lovers, whose family feud kept them apart, and ultimately led to the death of young Romeo Montague, and Juliet Capulet. This story has been read over an extended period of time by many students, teachers, historians, and scholars. Most will tell you that there are many themes and ideas that can be interpreted from the play. The strength of love and hate is one of the main ideas that is constantly brought up in Romeo and Juliet.
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 the other hand, love can bring out the best in people. For example, the main foil we see in the beginning of the book is between Romeo and Tybalt. Tybalt, due to his arrogance, brings the best out of Romeo when he is attempting to engage Romeo in a duel (Shakespeare 3.1). Romeo denies Tybalt's offer to a fight, for obvious reasons. Tybalt continues to harass Romeo while Romeo is simply complementing Tybalt in return.
Love comes unexpectedly to the most unexpected people. The beauty of it is when love surprises you. It comes to the least likely people to be together. One example is Beatrice and Benedick relationship in “Much Ado About Nothing” by William Shakespeare. Their relationship is interesting in the sense of chaos and love.
Romeo is very fixated on love, easily heartbroken, and depressed. These traits are more obvious as Mercutio’s humor and his ability to be reasonable lighten the rather dark shadow Romeo carries. Mercutio’s line, “If love be rough with you, be rough with love. Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down.” (I, iv, 27-28)
“The Tragedy of a Desperate and Hopeless Love” What are the limits of love? Is despairing love boundless and its ill-fated actions expected to be understood? How far is too far in an attempt to ease the hurt of a broken heart? The Love Suicides at Amijima is an emotional and sentimental story that demonstrates a more mind boggling look on affection, while Oroonoko gives an exemplary interpretation of a widespread romantic tale that everybody can rely upon, adoration everlasting. Both of these stories are socially various and significantly engage them.
Love at first sight is impossible because love only comes AFTER a couple knows each other for exactly who and what each other is. For example, Romeo swears to Benvolio and Friar Lawrence that he loves Rosaline, which he proves by describing her physical beauty. However, once he sees Juliet, he forgets that he ever knew Rosalline. He swears that he only loves Juliet, and that their love is real because she loves him back. How can either love the other when they know nothing about each other except what he/she looks like and how well he/she kisses?
Catullus 5 shows how he wanted to kiss and be with Lesbia. Romeo and Juliet shows the love between two individuals, they long to be with one another for eternity. There are also parts where the authors show disgust and anger. Shakespeare 90 shows the distaste someone has for him. Catullus 16 shows the anger Catullus had over the actions of his friends.
The theme of love and misery is present throughout the play, yet Antonio holds a passionate and honest love that is a great contrast to the Petrarchan lover, Duke Orsino. Orsino is a melancholic lover who is in love with the idea of being ‘in love’; but unbeknownst to Orsino his views on love are more towards his stomach it seems. The first lines of the play Orsino explains his skewed view on love, Orsino refers to love as an “appetite” and mentions that it is possible for the appetite to ‘sicken and die’ which was a foreshadow in my opinion of Orsino’s character because through the play he mentions how strong his love is for Olivia despite the fact that he suddenly loses interest in her when someone else is brought to his attention. The use of the word ‘die’ when talking about

Fixed mindset is the thought that talent and skills develop success without putting any effort. Grit is determination to stick to one thing until you have mastered it. There are certain decisions that an individual makes that will impact grit.
Although Othello has risen to power in a society where he is an outsider, he still believes he may be inferior because of it. His inability to disprove this belief in his marriage leads to his tragic downfall. After Shakespeare has first introduced the audience to the newlyweds, he immediately sends them off to challenges at Cyprus. Along with their own physical differences, they now lack the time to find a common ground of interests. This is the first crack in the foundation of Othello and Desdemona’s love.
The Ungraspable Life is ungraspable, yet I find myself grasping to it ever so dearly. I attach myself to memories, feelings, possessions, and relationships. I cling so tightly to them, that they become a part of me. They begin to define me. The things we find ourselves grasping onto in life ultimately disappear with death.
Love is an emotion that has been the known root of many conflicts, but it is also an action that has produced many wondrous things. The concept of love in Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel, The Scarlet Letter, is no different. At times, it generates animosity, yet, at other times, it evokes a sense of oneness. Love, as both an action, and an emotion, serves as a catalyst that elicits sinful acts, the uptaking of responsibility, as well as drives sacrifice. Love, in the form of an emotion, can be a powerful, driving force, in one’s decision making.
Love; Noun; an intense feeling of deep affection. The structure and language in the prologue of Act 2 in Romeo and Juliet reveals an immense mutual feeling of love. Romeo and Juliet is a tragic story of love, pain, and feuding. It handles two star-crossed lovers from rival families in Verona, Italy in the 1300s. To them, it seems as if the whole world is against them and the universe is telling them “No”.
