He tells him all about Juliet and how the two are to get married. Friar Laurence believes that Romeo is acting hastily, because only last night he had been heartbroken by Rosaline. Despite his thoughts, Friar Laurence agrees to marry the two teens in hope that the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets will end. “ So smile the heavens…” (Act 2, Scene 6, Line 1) When Friar Laurence married Romeo and Juliet he did not know that later, because of certain actions in the play the two young kids being married is part of the reason they
Many classic plays and novels have been transformed into movies. Often times, audiences will complain that the movie did not capture what went on in the book and that it added unnecessary scenes while cutting vital ones out. However, sometimes a film will perfectly portray a book and will capture all of the novel’s important aspects. William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is an excellent play that is dramatic, comedic, and romantic. It perfectly exhibits the emotions someone would want to feel while reading a novel (in this case, a play).
When something happens that is not supposed to, such as a tragic event, or experience, we often look for a scapegoat to apply blame. Scapegoats can be many different things, such as a Person, or a more abstract matter such as time. In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, we find that the play brings two families whose enmity for each other will eventually lead to the deaths of the beloved characters Romeo and Juliet. The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, published in 1597, is widely considered to be the greatest love story in all of Literature; along with the characters Romeo and Juliet. 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.
The nurse did have second thoughts about Romeo when she found out he slain Tybalt, even when Juliet's father said she would have to marry Paris the nurse agreed with him because of Romeo's banishment. Without the nurse their relationship wouldn't have developed anything further than the night they had at the party. Same goes for the Friar and Romeo. They have a father and a son like relationship. Without the Friar Romeo wouldn't have been pushed to marry Juliet, he most likely would've ended up finding another beautiful girl and fall in love.
Romeo and Julie final essay Love and madness seem to go very well and often together in literature. Within William Shakespeare’s classic play Romeo and Juliet readers see just this. The play follows this quote that is said by Friedrich Nietzsche which fits perfectly with the underlying tones of madness in love. “There is always some madness in love, but there is always some reason in madness.” This quote is very true for these three characters; Romeo, Capulet, and Juliet. There is madness in the way these characters show their love but there is good reasoning behind it.
Since Juliet and Romeo are sworn enemies it is forbidden to date Romeo but Juliet thinks otherwise. Juliet has strong feelings for Romeo and pours her heart for him because she loves him dearly but yet is never going to see him. Juliet so in love with Romeo makes her think quickly when he reveals that he is in her courtyard trying to reach her. Juliet so in love and so confused makes a drastic decision to prove her love towards Romeo. “If that thy bent of love be honorable/Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow”-Juliet (2.2.143-144).
When Romeo hears of this he exclaims “Alive in triumph—and Mercutio slain! /away to heaven, respective lenity,/and fire-eyed fury be my conduct now./now, Tybalt, take the “villain” back again /that late thou gavest me, for Mercutio’s soul /is but a little way above our heads,/staying for thine to keep him company./either thou or I, or both, must go with him” (3.1.127-134). Romeo explicitly states that fury will control his actions and contradicts what he says earlier and engages Tybalt in a duel. He ends up killing Tybalt and realizes the consequences of his
Scene 2. Lines 9-11). Here Capulet is telling Paris he does not think Juliet is ready to marry and he wants his daughter to be happy. Another time her character is naive is when she tells her mother she wishes not to be married, despite the fact she is supposed to be searching for a spouse.”Marry, that ‘marry’ is the very theme I came to talk of. Tell me daughter Juliet, how stands your disposition to be married?’ Juliet,’It is an honor that I not dream of.” (Act 1.
One of the last ways Shakespeare shows us love is by Helena and Demetrius. For example, Helena was always that girl in the story that wished she was perfect, wished she could be like Hermia, and wished that she would love herself. Helena fought for along time just to get Demetrius. Helena didn 't fight her parents tho, she had to fight her love and rejection that Demetrius through at her every time she gave him reasons why. But at the end you see that it payed off because Demetrius started liking Helena.
Prior to this, free will is such a debatable topic of why one problem is deemed to happen. An illustration, William Shakespeare demonstrates is when Romeo and Juliet decide to marry each other, within the first couple of days they meet, “she leaves me so satisfied? Th’ exchange of thy love’s faithful vow for mine” (2.2.132). Knowing that they are from rivalry families, we as readers don 't know the consequences they will later undergo. Although, Shakespeare immediately spoils his readers that, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows Doth their death bury their parents strife” (7).
