Paris says, “That she doth give her sorrow so much sway, and in his wisdom hastes our marriage, to stop the inundation of her tears.” (708) when he is talking to Friar Laurence about him and Juliet getting married. In others words, Paris and Capulet think that Juliet is lamenting over Tybalt’s death and Paris wants to get married quickly in order to make Juliet happy again. This shows that neither Paris nor Capulet knows how Juliet actually feels and what is really going on. Capulet most likely has an ulterior motive in the sense that now that Tybalt is dead he wants to have another relation to Prince Escalus, which in this case would be through Paris. It is because of fate that Capulet decides to have the marriage so soon.
The story of “Romeo And Juliet” has many love types. One of the main types of love shown in Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet is Unrequited love. In act one scene one of Romeo And Juliet, Romeo states, “ Out of her favor, where I am in love.” Romeo is talking to Benvolio about how Rosaline doesn’t love him, and in turn he is sad. This is Unrequited love because the love between Romeo and Rosaline is not mutual. On lines 213-215 of act one scene one Romeo states, “ She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow do I live dead that live to tell it now.” Rosaline has sworn not to love, so Romeo claims this has left him feeling dead.
When the nurse goes to tell Romeo this information, she informs him of this man, Paris, who is pining for Juliet’s love, but she also tells him that Juliet has no feelings for Paris, only for him, Romeo. This exchange of information shows that the nurse wants Romeo to know how Juliet feels because she wants them to stay together. Later, when Juliet is convinced that she is in love with Romeo, the nurse tells her she made the wrong choice. She says, “Well, you have made a simple choice; you know how to/ choose a man: Romeo! / ...he is not the flower of courtesy” (40).
The Nurse and Friar Lawrence are responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The Friar was one of Romeo's most important role models. Romeo looked up to him and respected his opinions. No matter what the Friar could have said to Romeo and Juliet, they still would have gotten married, but the Friar could have helped them find a better way to go about it. The Friar thought that marrying the two kids of the feuding houses would help put an end to their parents' fight, "Thy love did read by rote, that could not spell.
In each story we find two young people who are in love, sadly though, both loves have been forbad. Our main point here is the divider which separates the lovers. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare writes, “from ancient grudge break to new mutiny” (1.1.2). Then in “Pyramus and Thisbe” Ovid writes “They longed to marry, but their parents forbade.” (947). Now that the divider has been brought to attention, we must also know that when love is restrained, it finds a way to come through.
This is seen being used against Juliet in Act III, Scene V. Lord Capulet discusses Paris’ proposal to marry Juliet in Act I, Scene II and reveals his caring side towards his daughter and her welfare. Although a father now deciding that his daughter’s wedding will be when she’s 15 would be a horrible, possessive thing, in Shakespearean times (16th century) this would’ve been seen a compassionate thing to do from a father’s point of view. Shakespeare makes Capulet’s description of Juliet
In order to get the two lovers together, the Nurse even sets up a ladder so that romeo can spend the night with Juliet. The Nurse is even willing to be a messenger for Juliet and take insults from Mercutio to help their marriage and do the right thing. To give confidence to Romeo the Nurse says “Stand up, stand up. Stand, an you be a man./For Juliet’s sake, for her sake, rise and stand.” giving Romeo confidence and to be a man for Juliet (3.iii.88-89). Only when the Nurse tells Juliet she should marry Paris is when she does not do the right thing, due to Romeo and Juliet 's love being true and Juliet and Paris’ love is not.
Friar Lawrence agrees to get Romeo and Juliet married This was a happy day for Romeo and Juliet, So smile the heavens upon this holy act That after-hours with sorrow chide us not. (I.vii.1-2) Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry Juliet even though their family is enemies, he is very confused and against the idea, but eventually gets them both married because he thinks that it will cause an end to their family feud. The Montagues and the Capulets hated each other for a long period of time, by marrying the both young lovers he thinks that both families will be in peace. Friar Laurence has sacrificed by marrying both of them without any of their parent's permission. Therefore Friar Lawrence gets them married because of what he thinks might
The Friar is a wise character. The Friar agrees to marry Romeo and Juliet, yet after the marriage a bunch of things go wrong and so the two lovers are separated, but the Friar has plans to see them reunited. The Friar 's letter to Romeo is stayed because of the plague, yet this doesn 't stop Romeo from hearing about Juliet 's death. Romeo rushes to the Capulet tomb to be with his wife, but sadly she has already ¨passed away¨ Romeo takes his life and Juliet follows suit when she wakes, yet the Friar is helpless to stop the deaths. The Friar is an opportunist.
Their vision becomes is obstructed by the love they have for one another, they don’t even learn they are enemies until later. “Is she a Capulet?” , asks Romeo to the nurse(Romeo and Juliet 1.5.117) “Come hither, nurse. What is yond gentleman?” , Juliet asks about Romeo to the nurse (Romeo and Juliet 1.5.126) The best example of love blinding rationale is when romeo is banished. Juliet does not even weep for Tybalt, her cousin, she only weeps for Romeo. Romeo says, “Ha, banishment!
