Romeo tells Tybalt, “I do protest I never injur’d thee, but love thee better than thou canst devise” (162). Romeo tells Tybalt he loves him but cannot tell him the reason why, the reason being they are technically family now through his marriage to Juliet. Mercutio grows frustrated because Tybalt calls Romeo a villain, Mercutio believes Tybalt should not get away with being so insulting. Romeo reacts to being called a villain by saying “I love you so I don’t care that you called me a bad name. But you clearly don’t know me very well, goodbye!”
A message of Romeo & Juliet is hatred causes tragic ending rather than the greatness of love. In fact, tragic heroes in the drama who are caused from hatred are Capulet and Montague. If there was no loss of Capulet which is the death of Juliet and his nephew, there might be no touching, sadness and lesson. (I like this idea. It’s interesting that as a result of all this, there would be no love in the end, or emotion.)
Prior to meeting Juliet, Romeo had merely been depressed and was lovesick for Rosaline; in being with Rosaline Romeo felt that her love could lead him to blissful joy but his feelings of endearment for Rosaline emphasized his feelings of loneliness. “ I’ll pay that doctrine or else die in debt,”- Benvolio. Refers to Benvolio’s assistance in curing Romeo from his love sickness; had it not been for Benvolio’s persistence, Romeo might have continued to be on a downwards spiral into depression and would have been weighed down by his emotions. “O, teach me how I should forget to think,”-Romeo. Had it not been for Romeo’s friends he would have given up and eventually gotten further away from finding his good fortune in the upcoming future.
In the play Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare depicts Romeo as a man who over exaggerates his feelings and acts purely based on them. The first scene where Romeo is mentioned is when we find the Montague family looking for him. He has wandered off sighing because of some sadness he feels and when Benvolio finds him he discovers that Romeo had left due to Rosaline rejecting his love. When Romeo describes how heartbroken he is over Rosaline he says “Why, such is love’s transgression./griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast,/which thou wilt propagate, to have it pressed /with more of thine. This love that thou hast shown/doth add more grief to too much of mine own” (1.1.192-196).
Love at first sight happens to have an unexpected relationship, even though many opponents disagree that love doesn 't exist. Once we understand that there is love at first sight, we will be careful to what we choose. Love is believing in their integrity and good intentions towards you. It is something that people can
For I ne 'er saw true beauty till this night" (1- 5). This line describes how Romeo feels when he sees Juliet for the first time, romeo describes how he has fallen in love with Juliet because sof how beautiful Juliet is. This line is a perfect example of romantic love because Romeo is feelin an overload of emotions. Another example would be when Romeo is banished from Verona and says that being banished from Verona is worse than death. Romeo says this because his love for Juliet has caused him into believing that he rather die then not being able to see Juliet.
When Romeo learns of Juliet’s death he straight out exclaims his anger with the gods, “Then I defy you, stars!” and starts to think up his plan to kill himself, denying the gods in a more subtle way (V.I.25). These instances of rejection of heaven are rash because they know that displeasing the gods would only lead to bad things, but they do it anyway, displaying the rash side of their decisions and setting the scene for the ending. One last example of this is at the party, “This holy shrine, the gentle sin is this” when Romeo kisses Juliet despite his obsession with Rosaline, silently crossing the wishes of the gods who gave him that obsession
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is a love story about two star-crossed lovers whose love for each other leads them to kill themselves. Although we tend to blame the deaths of Romeo and Juliet on their fickle and irresponsible behavior, there is one character who I believe is ultimately responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence is the Friar responsible for marriage and confession for the Montagues and the Capulets. When Romeo and Juliet go to the Friar seeking their marriage, he accepts, thinking that the marriage might repair the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues.
Thinking that Juliet is dead, Romeo cries out, “Then I defy you stars” (5.1.24), declaring himself wholeheartedly opposed to the decrees of destiny that so grieve him. These events are not coincidences, but Shakespeare’s misanthropic manipulations of fate - ultimately spiralling the lovers towards the climactic failure of love; the double
Shakespeare uses monologue, in Romeo and Juliet, to reveal how attentive Friar Lawrence was to portray that one would try to direct another, who has gone astray, toward the right path. After the prince declared Romeo is banished from Verona, Romeo was crying “tears [that were] womanish” about his banishment on the floor of Friar Lawrence’s chamber (Romeo and Juliet 3.3.120). Friar thought Romeo had matured after his mishap with Juliet’s cousin, Tybalt, but saw that he was an “unseemingly woman in a seeming man”(3.3.122). He then began to understand that Romeo’s “wild acts” were caused by “the unreasonable fury of the beast” inside him (3.3.120-21). Friar couldn’t believe that Romeo had chosen to “[kill] the love which [he] hast vowed to cherished” and he reminded him that “[he], the dear love [had sworn], but was a hollow perjury”(3.3.138-39).

He was very depressed and sorrowful, due to Rosaline’s rejection. We also, see Romeo’s mood revealed as a state of agony, when he describes love as the opposite of what it should actually be.

Why are rhyme and rhythm essential in a poem? By what method does it develop a character in a story? In the poem, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, the author, uses Rhyme and rhythm to evolve characters in the story.
