However, it can be experienced at many different levels of love. In Romeo and Juliet, the moment Romeo sees Juliet, he immediately devotes himself to her. He says ‘Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight’. Shortly after Romeo meets Juliet, he immediately woos her and kisses her, forgetting entirely about Rosaline, his previous love.
Romeo, in an act of revenge, kills Tybalt. The Prince, trying to maintain peace, banished Romeo from Verona. The Nurse brought the news to Juliet “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that killed him, he is banished” (Romeo and Juliet 2. 2. 69-70 ) This made Juliet miserable over Romeo's banishment, meanwhile her parents thought her unhappiness was over Tybalt's death.
In the play Romeo and Juliet, many conflicts had made the play very interesting and kept your attention. Romeo and Juliet had fallen in love but then found out that their families don't like each other. They both ended up dying. I feel as if Friar Lawrence was most responsible for the outcome in Romeo and Juliet because he married them and gave Juliet the potion. Many other things would have happened if Friar did not get involved.
Love Types in Othello What is love? This question has plaqued peoples mind since the beginning of time. People love ‘love’ so much that they write songs, movies, books, and poems about it. In modern times women have been raised with the image of a handsome prince coming to bestow the kiss of love (or life) upon us, thanks to Disney movies and romance novels. But when Shakespeare wrote about love, it was about many different kinds of love, and there usually are no ‘happily ever after’ endings.
Shakespeare uses a combination of techniques to show a true heartedness of love between Romeo and Juliet in Act 1 Scene 5 and Act 2 scene 2. Elements of Shakespeare's techniques can be seen also in poems from the Love Poetry Anthology. I will be exploring the ways how all three the writers portray strong feelings love. In Act 1 scene 5 Shakespeare sets the scene for the rest of the play of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare sets the Scene for the rest of the play in Act 1 scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet; he shows how the lovers meet and the intensity and depth of love that is then created between them. When Romeo first sets sight Juliet he is stunned by the sight, the overwhelming feeling he experiences is made obvious by him when he sighs 'O', which shows the audience that he has an over flow of emotions and longs to be with Juliet.
Romeo and Paris have not only things in common, there are also differences between the two. Romeo changes his mind fast, that’s easily seen when Romeo is one day totally in love with Rosaline but the next day, actually the same night he is totally in love with Juliet. Paris on the other hand is constantly in love with Juliet, and doesn’t give up on her. Paris is also decent, he asks Lord Capulet polite if he can marry his loved-daughter. Romeo didn’t share his feelings for Juliet to anyone but Juliet and Friar Lawrence, the fact that he had contact with Juliet was only known by Romeo and his friends, Juliet the Nurse and Friar Lawrence.
If this was the case, Juliet may not have felt so driven to take the potion and fake her death. Capulet’s forcing and uncaring parenting caused Juliet’s death. Above all, fate’s unavoidable reach is at most to blame for Juliet’s death. Fate’s first prediction was “one dead in the bottom of a tomb,” meaning when Juliet faking of her death. Fate also predicted “a pair of star-crossed lovers tak[ing] their live[s].” Out of everyone in the play, fate is at most to blame for Juliet’s death because of it’s unavoidable and destined to happen.
Romeo and Juliet is a play exploring the love of two young people. Their passion overrides their reason and emphasizes its tragedy, “A pair of star-cross’d lovers” who take their lives. Love and Relationships is the greatest theme of Romeo and Juliet. It is naturally the plays most dominant and important theme. The young teens focus on romantic love, specifically the intense passion that springs up at first sight between them.
She is completely unable to control her feelings for her only love, “I must love a loathed enemy” [I, v, 139]. The way that Shakespeare uses “must” is very interesting because although the households are enemies she must go against her parents will because she loves Romeo. No longer did her parents support her instead she was rejected. When Juliet rebels against marring Paris, “He shall not make me a joyful bride” [III,v,117]. Lord Capulet becomes enraged of this defiant behaviour, “An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend / an you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, / For, by my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee” [III, v, 192-4].
Other families have suffered losses because of the feud between these two families that lasted for generations. Most of these deaths would never have occurred if the two families were not fighting. Furthermore, Friar Lawrence told Lord Capulet that Juliet sought advice to avoid the marriage to Paris without disobeying her father; she even threatened to kill herself in his chamber if the Friar refused to help (5:3:236-241). Lord Capulet should not have yelled or threatened Juliet over an arranged marriage to Paris. He pressured her into drinking the concoction out of desperation.
