They decided to get married after their “love fest” in the garden, and this is where their adventure began. The first archetype I have chosen for Romeo was a rebel. Romeo fits this archetype because he is inclined to resist authority and the authority that he is going against is his families’ laws. Romeo is courting Juliet discreetly behind their families back. Romeo is not supposed to have any dealings with her, yet he still fights for love.
The Friar responds with, “Young men’s love then lies/ Not truly in their hearts but, in their eyes jesu maria, what the deal of brine/ Hath washes thy sallow cheeks for Rosaline!”(2.3.68-90). In the first act, Romeo thought himself to be in love with Rosaline. Romeo had been distraught over the fact that his beloved Rosaline was going to become a nun. Romeo would never be able to love Rosoline, or be with her. Friar Lawrence makes fun of Romeo saying that young men only love what they see.
When the girls start to sing the song “I’m the Sheik of Araby. Your love belongs to me. At night when your’re asleep Into your tent I’ll creep” this shows how Gatsby has the power to take back the love that Daisy has given to once and knows that it can happen once again like when they last met. When Gatsby is talking to Nick on page 152, Gatsby mentions how Tom never loved Daisy as much as he did to her. Gatsby enforces that he and Daisy should be together even thought that Daisy has moved on and let go of the past and got married and with a child.
(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s personality drastically changes. At first Romeo was love-sick and Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage. Then they meet, fall in love and get married.
/ For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (I.v.50-51) This shows his impulsiveness by not mentioning Rosaline at all and starting to fall in love with a girl he does not even know. Yet does he know she is a Capulet. Romeo’s action of falling in love leads to much grief of others. It leads to the deaths of Romeo, Juliet, Tybalt, Mercutio, Paris, and Lady Montague. The fates and lives of these people, Romeo included, could have been spared if his tragic flaw had not taken over when
It becomes clear that Hamlet did truly love Ophelia, yet hid it because he was a coward. The “ White Lie” is not only depicted through Hamlet denying his love but also putting a front up for the selfish betterment of his life style. After his outrageous lecture on self worth that Hamlet gives Ophelia, she grows incredibly mad, which ultimately leads to her death. Although the intentions of his lecture were clearly to hurt Ophelia and gain power over her, once he realizes she is dead he feels the need to express his actual love for her. His change of attitude grows confusing as he professes his dear love after her awful death, “ I loved Ophelia.
The speaker expresses his angst in blaming the angels for his loved one’s death because “The angels, not half so happy in heaven, \ Went envying her and me” (Lines 21-22) The speaker goes on to say that even though his Annabel Lee is dead; their love is far from it. And neither the angles in heaven above, Nor the demons down under the sea, Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee. (lines 33-36) The speaker again implies their love is strongly than any heavenly force as well as any force below and that his love is never-ending, their souls are entwined forever and can never be separated by any
In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby the characters do the same. They look for the special someone or in the case of Jay Gatsby try to get back the girl that got away. However love in the Great Gatsby proves to only be the result of denial and self-deception. “The officer looked at Daisy while she was speaking, in a way that every young girl wants to be looked at some time.” This was one of the last moments Jay Gatsby shared with Daisy before his departure to war. He left here while they were in love with each other and expected everything to stay the same until they met again.
