we see him trying with a great effort the first time he talks to Roxane without cyrano. The poor man is bad with words, but he does love her dearly. The other love triangle we see is Roxane with De Guiche/valvert. Although its not the same type of love triangle since this love is not returned from roxane to anyone, it is still an example. De guiche loves roxane, but since he is married, is having Valvert marry her instead, so he can then turn around and keep her close.
He is very protective over her and he does mention that Paris should at least try and win her heart and make her love him before he proposes to her as he says “but woo her, gentle Paris, get her heart”, so we can see he does want his daughter to marry because she loves him not as in Shakespearean times when they married not for love, and they were expected to fall in love after marriage. In those times because when a couple is married and the girl becomes the husbands ‘property’ Capulet does not like the thought of that and he likes the power of being in control of Juliet and does not want to give her away. In act 3 scene 5 Capulet changes his thoughts about Paris and Juliet’s marriage, but because Juliet has only just married Romeo in secrecy and does not love Paris anyways she refuses and we can see how violent and controlling he is over Juliet when she rejects the other to marry Paris when he says “go with Paris
The men are supposed to be sick with love, vehement about it, and so sweet a woman would have to accept his advances. The woman’s role is very much a broad, sweeping statement. This allows for the notion that women are property to be claimed to run as the undercurrent to the courtly love system. This is evident in the way that Arcite and Palamon, Theseus, and even the Gods force Emelye into a marriage she wants no part in. The Knight tries his best to maintain a noble and romantic air to his story but the tale itself contradicts that.
Romeo was still heartbroken by Rosaline and Juliet thought she would marry no one she liked in the least bit at all. In Act 1 Scene 4 Romeo says “I have a soul of lead, so stakes me to the ground I will never move.” He says this out of sadness of not being able to marry Rosaline. This was literally a few moments before Romeo sees Juliet for the first time. It supports that Romeo was vulnerable to love as he was stricken with sadness resulting in his attraction to Juliet merely to distract himself, not out of true love. As for Juliet, she was vulnerable as well as she wanted to choose any man other than Paris to marry.
In “Romeo and Juliet”, love’s power of influence is a constant strength and source of courage. Throughout the play, the protagonists fight against the present society and counter their family’s wishes in order to follow their desires and make of two star crossed lovers one. They are both willing to abandon their names for each other “Deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”. This shows that love in Shakespearean literature overcomes and supersedes their reputation, loyalty towards their names and is basically the only key to happiness. This forcefulness of love becomes so strong and intense that it turns to violence and hatred for all obstacles blocking their reunion.
In William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, the two main protagonists are very similar in based of personality traits, but it is also shown that they are still very different individuals and whose characteristics have a bigger impact on the play. Romeo, the son and heir of Montague and Lady Montague, whose actions have escalated the family feud between his family and the Capulets. Romeo was love struck the moment she saw Juliet, that the same day “[they] met, [they] woo’d, and made exchange of vow” (Shakespeare, Act 2 Scene 3 62). In a sudden action of haste, he asked Friar Lawrence “that thou consent to marry us today” (Act 2 Scene 3, 64); all of this because of what he has been feeling ever since he met her. Not only he is impulsive, but he is also devoted.
As you can see, they have been through many difficulties before they are led to a happy ending. Egeus, Hermia’s father is the biggest throuble of all as he tries to force Hermia to marry Demetrius, the guy who has his consent. Hermia, being in love Lysander, refuses to do so. Eageus is very angry about it. He takes his daughter and the two guys to the court of Athens and asks Theseus to give judgement.
Not only do they think that they find their soul mate in each other, they also decide to get married right after they meet. This action by far is the most unintelligent thing they do. They barely know each other, with the exception that they each belong to the names of the Montague's and Capulet's. Their families have a history of feuding with each other yet Romeo and Juliet turn a blind eye and decide to get married, adding more fuel to the fire. In Juliet's line "My only love sprung from my only hate!
all men call thee fickle:... wilt not keep him long,But send him back”. Juliet begs fortune to be kind to her by changing she and Romeo’s terrible fate. Juliet foreshadows her and Romeo’s fate. Love and Hate: Examples Romeo(a Montague) and Juliet(a Capulet) were born into two fighting families Despite their two families hating and fighting each other constantly the two fall in love
William Shakespeare establishes Benedick’s character by using diction and imagery to show his changed viewpoint on marriage. Benedick is strongly opinionated and rarely ever let’s his guard down when it comes to feelings or love. After he overhears that Beatrice is in love with him, he ponders what to do. The characterization is established through diction, “And wise, but for loving me; by my troth it is not addition to her wit, nor no great argument of her folly, for I will be horribly in love with her!” (II.3.235-237). He is saying that is might not be wise for loving him, but he swears it won’t be stupid for he is going to be “horribly” in love with her.
