Romeo thinks that his blurred sense of reality due to romanticism has let Mercutio die to Tybalt. Romeo furiously states, “[His] very friend, hath got this mortal hurt / In [his] behalf. [His] reputation stained / With Tybalt’s slander…” (III.1.115-117).
Their love brought them temporary pleasure; however, that same love caused their permanent end. Romeo is the main factor behind the demise of Juliet and himself. Romeo is introduced as a passive man who deeply longs for romance. He is a slave to passion and romance and is obsessed with obtaining it with whoever is willing to reciprocate. Romeo is in deep depression because of unrequited love for Rosalind, “This love feel I, that feel no love in this” (1.1.182).

The most important theme depicted in Acts one and two in Romeo and Juliet is that of love. In the prologue Shakespeare introduces Romeo and Juliet as, “A pair of star-cross’d lovers” whose love was destined for destruction. For Romeo, love is complicated in nature because of his shift of emotions from one girl to another. Once he discovers his new love in Act II, Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden love is the driving force behind their actions and the events that take place.
thou,i,or both must go with him”. This shows Romeo was being very impulsive because he wouldn’t explain why he was there. Also when romeo was talking to Paris he was being very hostile towards him. Overall everybody can agree that romeo was being impulsive and impetuous. One of Romeo’s most interesting traits is being romantic, this can be seen when Romeo says”...
“I would there were no age between ten and three and twenty... For there is nothing in between but getting wenches with child, wronging the ancientry, stealing, fighting” (Shakespeare, The Winter’s Tale, Act III, Sc. iii). Shakespeare discusses the nature and folly of youth in several of his writings, among the most famous being Romeo and Juliet. Teenagers instigated the play's tragedy. Although Romeo and Juliet made poor decisions, their decisions were normal because of the immaturity of their brains.
Second, Romeo falls in love at first sight. Romeo says “For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” (1.5.58) This example implies that Romeo falls in love at first sight. Finally, Romeo is very emotional.
William Shakespeare once wrote, “It is not in the stars to hold people’s destiny but in themselves.” Despite the depth of an ancient family feud, Romeo and Juliet pursued their love together, considered by some to be infatuated, even when given many obstacles to overcome. Rather than live without one another, the two teens took their lives to put the everlasting feud to a halt. Romeo and Juliet are victims of destiny, star-crossed lovers whose death’s are inevitable of doom due to their lack of approval from society, passion of love, and unfortunate luck.
Shakespeare uses Viola (Cesario) as an example of a mechanism that can throw internal conflicts into temporary chaos. Viola willingly faces whatever comes in her way. Her love for Duke Orsino seems too constant and true, unlike the other characters in the play. The temporary chaos of the play is when Viola falls in love with Orsino, who falls in love with Olivia, who on the other hand falls in love with Viola’s disguise, Cesario. This love triangle is very complicated as none of them realize that Cesario is a woman, making this an internal conflict for Viola, as she cannot ‘truly’ love whom she wants.
Yet Romeo and Juliet 's love is one that transcends the orthodox realms of society and goes against what is socially appropriate. Even Friar Lawrence makes this distinction when he speaks of the difference between loving and doting. This is the difference between Romeo 's feelings for Rosaline and for Juliet. His love for Rosaline being trivial and juvenile while his feelings for Juliet are more intense and even at times imply a vague sense of religious idolatry. Juliet too, shares similar feelings which is displayed in her soliloquy, thinking of Romeo: “My only love sprung from my only hate!”
This shows that she’s always thinking of him, always wanting to call for him. She speaks, she claims, and she thinks but is it true. There is love at first sight but is it true love? Sure Romeo and Juliet would die for each other but that doesn’t prove true love. Romeo was obsessed with Rosaline until the Capulet’s Ball.
That just shows how fast Romeo’s feelings can change and how he cannot decipher the difference between love and lust. There are also a lot of people who believe that Romeo’s love for Juliet is sincere. But in this case, there is too much evidence that prove that Romeo’s love for Juliet is not true love. His attraction is more physical than emotional. And because Romeo and Juliet got married the same day they met, his love for Juliet was like an obsession.
The most prominent concept of courtly love is shown by Arcita and Palamon falling in love with the same woman. According to the rules of courtly love, it is acceptable for two men to love one woman, although it will cause much strife between the two. When Palamon overhears Arcita complaining about how much he loves Emily, he jumps out at his cousin stating, “Arcita, oh you traitor wicked, / Now are you caught, that crave my lady so…/ Either I shall be dead or you shall die.
