In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is influenced by Lord Capulet which plays a dramatic role in the play Juliet and Lord Capulet both have very explosive personalities when it comes to love and marriage. When Juliet first sees Romeo, she is immediately in love with him and thinks about marrying him. Juliet abruptly speaks ”Go ask his name. If he be married, My grave is like to be my wedding bed.”(1.5.132-133). This shows that Juliet is very desperate towards her feelings for Romeo, and him not loving her is not worth living.
In the play Romeo is shown before Juliet, he’s heartbroken and depressed because he’s “in love” with a girl named Rosaline but the feeling isn’t mutual. Later he meets Juliet and the next three days he has convinced her to get marry but the table turns and now he’s banished. Juliet who fakes her death, leaving her family in shock and in sadness, just so she can be with Romeo. While some believe this play is Romeo’s Play, I maintain that this is Juliet’s play.
In Romeo and Juliet, Act 2, Scene 2, Romeo talks to Juliet in a very heavenly way. He portrays that she is nothing like anything he has ever seen on earth, she is not plain, she is heavenly, and the most extraordinary human being he’s ever seen. Romeo’s word choice explains his love he has for Juliet. Romeo’s love for Juliet makes him feel something he has never felt before because he is so passionate for her. In “Duplex Theory of Love: Triangular Theory of Love and Theory of Love as a Story”, Robert J. Sternberg writes, “ Passion.
By developing conflict within the story, it shows the difference within their society, and advances the idea of the main characters and what to look forward too. “Uncle this is a montague, our foe; a villain that is hither come in spite”As conflict is developed within the story, it overpowers the true meaning of the love story. By the tremendous amount of hatred between the two families, the idea of the two lovers being the main part of the Romance gets lost. When the Mr. Capulet is warned of Romeo’s presence at the ball, the idea of him was never lost, and it impacted a truly important moment for Romeo and Juliet. The conflict between the two main characters is developed to the point that is advances the love
Throughout this time both show how much they love each other and what a good relationship should have: people should do anything to be together, worry about each other, and be willing to do anything for each other. People in a good romance will do whatever it takes to be together. Romeo states in his soliloquy his love for Juliet, included in this excerpt: “With love’s wings did I o’erperch these walls, for stony limits cannot hold love out, And what love can do, that dares love attempt: Therefore thy kinsmen are no stop to me” (2.2 66-69) Romeo explains how he has climbed the wall to Juliet just to be with her, not caring what her family could do to him. Although he knows he could be punished he does so anyway because of his love for her. His actions in not caring about Juliet’s kinsmen shows his priority is Juliet.
Romeo uses the word passing to suggest that Rosaline is out of reach for him because she is becoming a nun. Romeo does not wait for Rosaline he just moves on in the course of less than a day to a new crush. On the other hand, Romeo is willing to almost anything to be with Juliet. When in Juliet’s garden talking to Juliet Romeo says, “For stony limits cannot hold love out” (2.2.72). By going to see Juliet Romeo practically risks his life due to the rivalry that their families have.
After Juliet’s party, Romeo sneaks into the Capulets’ garden to be with Juliet. She says that because they are of rival families, they cannot openly love one another. In response to Juliet, Romeo declares, “Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptized. / Henceforth I never will be Romeo” (2.2.54-55). Romeo vows he loves Juliet with so much devotion that he would deny his name for her.
Pure and exhilarating, these swooners are willing to give everything for it. In Act 3, Romeo kills Tybalt in support of his friend Mercutio. Romeo begins to feel miserable because he killed Juliet’s cousin; Juliet cries solely because she may never see her love again. But she instantly forgives Romeo, realizing that Tybalt wouldn’t have spare Romeo’s life if he had won the duel. She shifts all her thoughts towards Romeo’s
Love is a dangerous thing. It can overpower a person’s mind completely, often blinding a person to reason, causing a person to act in irrational ways they normally wouldn’t. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, both of the titular characters love for each other causes them to act very impulsively, never thinking about the consequences of their actions. In the play, it is proven time and time again that grave consequences always follow people who act impulsively. This is demonstrated throughout the play when Romeo and Juliet rush to get married, Romeos and Juliet’s deaths, when Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo and Juliet’s first meeting and Juliet’s plan to fake her death.
