As I said before in the beginning of the book Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is gloomy and feeling hopeless about love because Rosaline (the women he “loves”) is not going to get married. He says: “She is too fair, too wise, wisely to far, To merit bliss by making
Hamlet portrays falsity when using rage against Ophelia after discovering she has been apart of a plot of revenge. He uses this as an opportunity to deny his love for her and degrade her until she felt horrible about her self. “I did love you once but you should have not belived me; for virtue cannot so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it. I loved you not.”(3.1.114-119). It becomes clear that Hamlet did truly love Ophelia, yet hid it because he was a coward.
This is emphasised with the fact that the two young lovers foreshadow their own death. Therefore this creates dramatic irony in that the audience know how the story is going unfold and the course of Romeo and Juliet’s’ lives but they do not know themselves. Shakespeare unravels the story whilst cleverly creating twists which brings sympathy upon the audience. The play starts with a prologue which is how Shakespeare begins to create a sense of sympathy for Romeo and Juliet. Here, the audience is told that the couple are ‘star cross’d lovers’ and that their love is going against the stars and that they are therefore doomed in disaster.
Human Imperfection Romeo and Juliet are one of the greatest examples of young love. They fell in love at first sight, but their family feud wouldn’t let them be together. Romeo and Juliet went to extremes to be together, and they found their only option to be death. It’s very plain and simple, Capulets and Montagues just hate one another. There is no real reason why they hate one another, other than having a different last name.
Who is to blame? By John Magee Romeo and Juliet is one of the most controversial and enduring stories of forbidden love due to Romeo and Juliet’s passionate innocence and their tragedy. Their innocence comes from their age and infatuation, but the tragedy is surely the result of the self-serving, manipulative and at times terrible judgment of Friar Lawrence. Romeo and Juliet’s love faced many obstacles, including a feud between their families, Juliet’s promised marriage to Count Paris, and their own youthful innocence. But if any one person is to blame for their tragic death that person is their most trusted advisor Friar Lawrence.
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
Tragedy is said to be further represented in Shakespeare’s use of opposites or antithesis. Suggested in Romeo’s oxymoronic prophetic- “Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love. Why then, O brawling Love! O loving hate” (I i.162-164) Along with omnipresent motifs of light and darkness, youth and age. Overall this scene of opposites is set within context of the lovers that are opposites in family caught in a feud that ultimately leads to tragedy.
Second, the murder of Tybalt by Romeo. Finally, the suicide of Romeo and Juliet. The love that is portrayed in the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is immature and rash. The love in this novel is mostly based on physical appearance. Romeo at first is in love with Rosaline, but this love is broken due to two things: Rosaline swearing herself to the lord and secondly the unexpected acquaintance of Juliet.
Then later in the story Romeo is seen, having the same reactions for Juliet as Rosaline, threatening to kill himself and claiming to be in damnation. Romeo and Juliet is considered a classic love story, true love at it’s best. Shakespeare puts Rosaline and Juliet next to each other to show they receive the same reactions despite the difference in circumstances. Love does not have a specific shape and it’s not different for Romeo and
This is demonstrated from the opening scene where out of nowhere a fight breaks out, just out of one perceived disrespectful utterance. If both sides hadn’t despised each other so much Romeo and Juliet’s affection would not have been sneered upon and, indeed may never have happened at all. In a classic forbidden fruit statement Juliet whispers “My only love sprung from my only hate!” when she realises who her love is. The conflict carries on even with the death of Mercutio and Tybalt. Instead of mourning their loss, each family incessantly blames the other for its cause.
