He was entertaining and the turning point for the main theme that climaxed the bliss and tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. 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! Madman! Passion! Lover!
And in the taste confounds the appetite: Therefore love moderately; long love doth so; Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow.” This is a quote from Romeo and Juliet from Friar Lawrence, who marries Romeo and Juliet. This shows how impulsive they are because they had met one day and deicided to get married the next day. They barely knew each other and they just decided out of the blue to get married. People date before they get engaged and once people are engaged they get married after a span of time.
When Love is True True love is a defendable emotion worth personally sacrificing for. In William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo Montague falls in love with Juliet Capulet, the Capulets being revivals of the Montague family. In the late 1400’s, when the two families are fighting, there is a strict, no contact pact between the two families set by the Prince of the town they reside in: Verona, Italy. From meeting and marrying Juliet, illegally returning from Mantua out of exile to see his supposedly dead wife, and taking his own life to be in heaven where she appears to be, Romeo shows that he is truly in love with Juliet and that he is willing to do anything to be with her.
In Romeo and juliet a theme is their love has to overcome many boundaries, but in the end death conquers all. In act one scene five, lines 91-110 Romeo and Juliet meet for the first time. In this scene love has to conquer the boundary of holy vs. profane, as said by Romeo, “If I profane thee with my unworthiest hand… My lips two blushing pilgrims ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a gentle kiss.
Once Romeo makes his way into the Capulet party and spots young Juliet from across the room he exclaims to himself, “Did my heart love til now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” (A1, S5, L 57-58) Romeo’s remarks to himself do nothing more than prove infatuation because the moment Romeo sees beautiful Juliet, he forgets all about the girl he earlier claimed to be deep in love with.
The power of love is another prominent theme that is explored in Shakespeare 's "Romeo and Juliet". He uses the two characters to show the idea of how love can do unforgettable things such as breakdown friendships, cause banishing and exiles and even cause death. The love between Romeo and Juliet is unlike many other relationships where couples seem perfect for each other and everything ends with a happily ever after. Shakespeare has realised this and shows how love is more than this. The play has the two star crossed lovers have a relationship that can bring two rivalling families together at their death.
“The course of love never did run smooth” (William Shakespeare).In Romeo and Juliet, there are several different types of love. There is unrequited love between Romeo and Rosaline, family love between the Capulets and their daughter, and love of family honor with Tybalt and his family name. The two most noticed types of love in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ though, is romantic love, and friendship. Without these two types of love, the world would be a place with no happiness, and nothing to look forward to.
In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Romeo is a true romantic and has a real love for Rosaline, but has a more passionate love for Juliet. Romeo has a real and romantic love for Rosaline. During Act I, Scene 2, a servant of the Capulets asks Romeo to read a list of people invited to the Capulet’s party, “My fair niece Rosaline” (Shakespeare I.2.70). Romeo’s love for Rosaline is real because he fights against his name. Rosaline is a Capulet and Romeo is a Montague.
In Shakespeare 's Romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, show they are in love in many ways, such as the fact that they are willing to die for each other. Romeo demonstrates part of this willingness when he says, “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight. Let’s see for means. O mischief, thou art swift to enter the thoughts of desperate men!” (5.1.36-38).
There is love at first sight but is it true love? In the book “Romeo and Juliet”, Romeo and Juliet may show signs of love and say things like “I would die for you” but is it coming from the heart or are they just saying it. They had only truly met at the Capulet’s Ball but Juliet is already saying “ My only love sprung from my only hate.” (1.5, 136)
she was kind of being forced into this marriage (because Count Parris came from a very wealthy family). and her parents would want her to be in that great of the state. If Juliet and Romeo never died then the Capulets and Montagues would never have united and all war would be gone, but together they taught the families to both be accepting of one
He then pulls her aside and before he kisses her, he says, “If I profane with my unworthiest hand/ This holy shrine, the gentle sin is this,/ My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand/ To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.” (1.5. 92-95) This quote proves how quickly Romeo can fall in love.
Romeo and Juliet are ill-fated lovers from William Shakespeare’s world renowned play – Romeo and Juliet, who are destined to die due to their families’ age-old hatred for one another. From the start, the pair are greatly influenced by other characters, certain events occurring throughout the play and most importantly, personal weakness. It is not the fault of one, but many where the downfall occurred, from Romeo’s impulsivity, Juliet’s obedience and Friar Laurence’s arrogance. Shakespeare’s characterization of Romeo and Juliet causes the downfall upon themselves which involves impulsivity and naivety.
