The definition is concise, but probably not very clear. It’s not easy to define what “absolute perfection” is, especially because of the free will. The passion between Romeo and Juliet is misinterpreted by the two young lovers as love. And all the readers in all these centuries have been interpreting a dramatic idea of love not based on reality but on impulsive feelings as “The ideal Love” . Romeo’s longing for ideal love is the primary driving force behind most of his actions, that reveal themselves as impulsive and stupid.
Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down.”(act 1, scene 4, lines 27&28)This quote shows how young men be harsh with you, so when you are in a relationship you are ready to get hurt because boys are still not mature enough. Dezma Grainer’s article “Getting a grasp on teenage ‘love’ can be complicated” states how teenagers think love is easy and how they think it’s true love. Teens often think they are in love because of social media and movies that influence teenagers. “As far as many teenagers are concerned, love always seems to be in the air. But is isn’t really love?
As their love began with simply being attracted to one another; it mutated into something so intense, that it would later destroy themselves and others in the process. Romeo & Juliet articulates the potency of love and how it is able cause destruction to everyone. Their bond depicts intimate love for each other, but in the end, it seemed like it was doomed from the very start. Separation was the key factor where love was evoked in Romeo & Juliet. Scenes in the play were able to
Shakespeare uses both romantic and identity crushes to show that parents should take teenage crushes seriously by providing examples of stories and lessons he put together into his plays. For example, One of his many famous plays he has created that is a great example of both romantic and identity crushes is Romeo and Juliet. A romantic crushes is formed by finding someone whom they find powerfully attractive; moreover, someone who they feel excited to be around, and with whom they want to spend a lot of time. Parents most often know not to take these romantic crushes serious because they know sooner or later their children will outgrow these crushes and move onto the next crush: “Most romantic crushes don’t last very long because once the
The comedy wanders around the difficulties and ironies of love as it provides a very accurate description of a relatively common situation that many people experience. Shakespeare excelled in delivering a piece that is comedic, relatable and unpredictable in its essence. As I progress through this essay, I will analyze one of its’ major themes, which is the controversy of love and how it involves some of the characters in the story. Love is often called the most beautiful sentiment a human can ever feel, yet, very often it can cause so much pain and despair, causing it to be very controversial and
As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Signifying that the one way to conquer hatred is with more and more love. In William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet , this theme is presented, in which two young teenagers fall in forbidden love and decide that their lives have no worth without each other. With the rivalry between the two houses, the Capulets, and the Montagues, the two lovers transform their hatred and the family's hatred for each other into love. Through producing love from hate between the Capulets and Montagues and creating love between Romeo and Juliet and Romeo and Rosaline, Shakespeare suggests love is the more powerful emotion and that love is worth dying for. With love
Romeo led Juliet to believe that he was exceptionally in love with her, when he most likely showed a pattern of this behavior in the past. This lead her to become attached to him, prompting her to feel as though she could not live without him. Romeo was also quite reckless within the play. He often acted without completely thinking things through, ultimately leading to Juliet’s
In Othello, Shakespeare intentionally made emotion a major flaw because it causes the characters to be easily manipulated and may cause the character to lose rational. Shakespeare did this to show strong of an emotion jealously is. Because of jealousy Iago is able to manipulate every character he talks to, whether they were minor like Brabantio, the father of Desdemona, or a major character like Othello, the Moor, the General, and supposedly Hero. If it weren’t for the jealously then the ending of Othello wouldn’t be so tragic. Othello’s jealously overcame Othello’s love, which made him blind to the truth.
The Immaturity of Romeo and Juliet Immaturity can spread throughout things and people creating problems for the present and future. Similarly, Romeo and Juliet not only shows the development of love, but the loss of maturity that leads to tragedy. People develop maturity, but the amount of immaturity makes the process go backwards. From Romeo and Juliet’s fast evolving relationship to the hate between the two families, and the lack of thought in different characters is recurrent throughout the story. Therefore,the theme of Romeo and Juliet evolves around the idea of immaturity.
Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865). Here Romeo tells Tybalt, that he loves him. Romeo does this with no thought about their last names, he is so in love with Tybalt’s cousin that all of a sudden he forgets about the two family’s bad blood. Friar warns Romeos about rushing into a relationship “Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast” (Shakespeare 847).
Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, is a classic story about love, one of the most confusing yet cherished feelings people have. As Romeo says in Act I, scene 1, “Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs; being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers’ eyes.” Why we have these feelings, we don’t know. Some say love is not even real. Some say the feeling we call romantic love is just our instinct to mate. Whatever the case, it will never be an easy topic.
When it is shared among two individuals, everything can seem right in the world. But love is a powerful entity as well. Its drug like effect can create envy and jealousy, irrational behavior, and it can make life miserable when it isn’t reciprocated. Esch’s growth throughout the book - from her first love, to being rejected, and to realizing that love surrounds her by way of family – shows that first love isn’t everything. Love can come from more than just a major crush on a boy.
According to Jamieson “Shakespeare’s treatment of love in the play is complex and multifaceted. He uses love in its many guises to thread together the key relationships in the play” (Lee 1). First, we see Romeo is in love with Rosaline in the beginning of the play. In today society we might describe it as “Puppy Love.” Laurence did not believe it will last long: Romeo says “Thou chid’st me oft for loving Rosaline” and Laurence replies “For doting, not for loving, pupil mine” (Shakespeare 11.iii.). Likewise, Paris is not in love with Juliet, it was more tradition then Passion.
