Juliet shows her devotion to Romeo throughout the entire play. One example was when Juliet is confronted with her parents’ decision for her to marry Paris. She refuses to follow through with their command and says, “I will not marry yet; and, when I do, I swear, it shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris.” These lines are ironic because she has already married Romeo and she loves him with an undying burning passion. Furthermore, when she chose to take the very dangerous potion that would make her fall into a very deep sleep, she was taking a huge risk. She was taking a very high risk in taking the potion because Friar Lawrence did not even know if it would work and she herself questions if he wanted to poison her.
Therefore, Romeo Montague is indeed, Impulsive and Devoted. On the other hand, Juliet, the only child and heir of the Capulets, begins the play as a naïve child who thought so little about love and marriage. But she then made it a priority, when she met Romeo. She was happy enough to obey her parents about marrying Paris, in where they think he is the ideal man for her, but all of that changes when Romeo became a part of her life. Unfortunately, “[her] only love sprung from [her] only hate!
Hearing this brakes down in tears and begs her parents to not make her do it or to give her more than just three days. When they enforce what they said Juliet goes to Friar Laurence in hopes he will be able to help her. Upon her arrival Fair Laurence gives Juliet a vial of liquid that will make her appear dead, so she can run away and be with Romeo. Even though Juliet was an obedient child she broke the rules not only but refusing to marry Paris but by pretending to be dead in order to live a happy life with
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.
Grief of my son's exile hath stopp'd her breath.” (5.3.219-220). By the end of the play, both the Capulet and Montague families are left grief stricken in the gloom of their deceased loved ones. Lord Montague is left to grieve alone because of the death of his wife and the suicide of his son and Lord and Lady Capulet are mourning over the loss of their only daughter. Romeo’s impulsiveness not only killed a bunch of people but also left many of their loved ones to suffer from their
Though there are many characters Friar Lawrence is most to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Friar Lawrence marries Romeo and Juliet with no one knowing that these two foes are now husband and wife. Friar Lawrence states, “To turn your households’ rancor to pure love “(II.iii.92). The Friar thought it would be a good idea to marry them so both their families could stop hating each other and maybe start to like each other by having Romeo and Juliet married. Friar Lawrence tells Romeo, “Wisely and slow.
Romeo has a bad feeling about his life within the first act as he says “With this night revels, and expire the term/Of a despised life clos'd in my breast,/By some vile forfeit of untimely death." (1.4.109-111). This line is spoken by Romeo to Benvolio before they attend the party hosted by the Capulets, where he is to meet Juliet. As Juliet is what the night is about to reveal, the audience is able to understand that the reason of Romeo’s death is Juliet. Furthermore, when Romeo is expressing his love for Juliet he states “My life were better ended by their hate,/ Than Death prorogued, wanting of thy love."
Talha Salman Mrs. Cruz-Walsh English 2B 24 March 2012 The Loss of Two Two lovers bound together by their ill-fated love, unknowingly lead themselves to their deaths. William Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, is a play about Romeo and Juliet and their short-lived love. Fueled by a family grudge the Capulet and Montague households could never see “eye to eye”. With only one man supporting them, the couple secretly loved, until they were ripped apart and eventually lost their lives. The demise of Romeo and Juliet was caused by their youth and inexperience, interference by adults, and most of all by fate and chance.
The Chorus states, “A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life; whose misadventure piteous overthrows doth with their death bury their parents’ strife.” This quote is an example of foreshadowing because it clearly states that Romeo and Juliet are going to die in the end. In Act 1 scene 4, lines 108-113, Romeo foreshadows about his own death. Romeo is stating that he feels as if the party tonight will be the start of something bad, something that will end with his own death. Romeo states, “I fear too early, for my mind misgives some consequences yet hanging in the stars, shall
