Although, marrying Romeo and Juliet secretly doesn’t follow society but Romeo trusts Friar Laurence and he is willing to marry them for Romeo. The Friar gives Juliet a plan to get out of the marriage with Paris: Hold, daughter! I do spy a kind of hope, Which craves as desperate and execution As that is desperate which we would prevent, If, rather than to marry County Paris, Thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself, Then is it likely thou wilt undertake A thing like death to chide away this shame, That copest with death himself to ’scape from it; And, if thou darest, I’ll give thee remedy. (4.1.68-76) Friar gives Juliet a vile where she will drink it and look dead for forty-two hours. He sends a letter for Romeo but it couldn’t be received by him because of a plague.
Tybalt coveted to extrude Romeo out from the reception except Lord Capulet tolerated Romeo because of his umpteen lauds. During the courtship party Tybalt recognized Romeo, “by his voice, [and that he was] a Montague [... their] foe; A villain, that [was] hither come in spite [...] content thee, gentle coz, [leave] him alone. ‘A bears him like a portly gentleman [...] he shall be endured” (I.5.59-84). Romeo would never have been able to meet Juliet if Lord Capulet had let Tybalt eject him from their gathering. Lord Capulet essentially endorsed Juliet’s relationship with Romeo without even knowing it.
Friar Lawrence, in this play, helps Romeo to fulfill his desires of marrying Juliet and always has good intentions for Romeo. In the second act, Romeo was in a hurry to marry Juliet, and he pleads with the Friar to conduct their marriage as Romeo was in "haste". Friar Lawrence agrees to this plea, in the hope that the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues would end and that the marriage will bring the families to make peace with each other. However, his intentions are destroyed when Romeo and Juliet commit suicide for each other and die because of their sworn love for each other. This is because in the play, Juliet refused to marry Paris and so the Friar offers his help again and gives her a special potion that makes her appear dead.
‘Good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as my own.’ The audience know the reason why Romeo won’t fight Tybalt, which is because Romeo and Juliet are now married. ‘The reason that I have to love thee.’ The audience know that Romeo must love Tybalt because they are now related. The other characters did not know about the wedding and are confused by what Romeo is saying. The dramatic irony in this scene makes it such an intense scene to watch. It is also a significant scene because it leads to Mercutio fighting Tybalt and Mercutios death.
In Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo disregards his reasoning and makes hurried decisions as he is influenced by his passion, while in Jane Eyre, Edward Rochester, though he possesses a great deal of wit, lets his feelings get in the way of his judgment and pursues a young love interest, Jane, when he knows of the social standards that forbid him to fall in love with a peasant. In Shakespeare's classic play, Romeo proves to be influenced solely by emotion and love while he makes irrational choices that ultimately lead to his tragic fate. In the beginning of the play, Romeo quickly marries Juliet within only a few hours of meeting her, without the consent of their parents. Their parents would not allow the marriage anyway, as the two families have had bad blood between each other for many years. Romeo's characterization causes him to disregard the possible consequences of the secretive marriage because he lives in the moment and only cares about his love for Juliet.
This feud brought problems along with it, such as the killing of Tybalt by Romeo. Juliet had said: “What’s in a name?” which explains her ill fate of being a Capulet and Romeo being a Montague. When Romeo tells his servant, “Ay, mine own fortune in my misery.” This sentence tells us he does not care for what Juliet’s name, nor his is. Bad luck plays a major role in the story of two-star-crossed lovers. There is an example of this when Romeo attends the Capulet’s party, and this is where he is first exposed to Juliet and where the misfortune begins.
His reaction in Act I scene iv shows that Juliet's appearance greatly affects him “O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night. As a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear-. Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!”(act I, scene iv, 45-48) He says to himself, "Did my heart love til now? "(act I, scene iv, 53) Romeo quickly decides that he is in love with Juliet even though he has not yet spoken to her.
Why doesn’t Romeo ask himself “If she doesn’t want to be with anyone, why do I want to be with her?” It is clearly because he loves the exciting chase of Rosaline. Romeo, so desperately wants her to want him, but if Rosaline did start to fall for Romeo, would he want her as much as he did before? Is he blinded by the desire to be in love? That’s where Juliet Capulet comes in. In an attempt to get Romeo’s mind off of Rosaline, Mercutio and Benvolio beg him to accompany them to a costume affair at the Capulets’ home.
Marriage is a satisfactory resolution in ‘Much Ado About Nothing’. Discuss. ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ (MAAN) as a dramatic comedy is traditionally associated with marriage as it usually symbolises a ‘happy ending’ to the play. Throughout the play we see two separate romantic relationships develop, and both, despite meeting with conflict, conclude with marriage. However, some would argue that these marriages are not a satisfying conclusion in MAAN as within the play marriage is undermined by Shakespeare as he represents it as being tainted to the extent that we are not convinced that it represents a happy ending at all.
5, Ln.54, 59)." At almost an instance, Romeo forgets about his hopes too see Rosaline, and instead sets his sights on getting to know Juliet. Although at first thought his actions would most likely be considered fickle', Romeo's confessions that he may not have loved until seeing her makes it apparent that (at least to him) Romeo's feelings for Juliet are far more heart-felt. In conclusion, Romeo is depicted as a true romantic in Shakespeare's
