Then they meet, fall in love and get married. Romeo is more impulsive and doesn’t think where Juliet is smarter about and thinks about things. But in the end love and fate triumphs and they die for each other causing their ancient family feud to
Now think about Romeo’s “love at first sight” with Juliet, they cannot get enough of each other, weakened at each other’s disappearance. This is an example of an impulse relationship. They don’t care about their feuding families; they just want to be
“Friar Lawrence, less ambitious and more desperate than his fellow manipulators, does not hope that Juliet’s death will dissolve the families’ hatreds but only that it will give Romeo and chance to come and carry her off” (Snyder). At this point Romeo and Juliet’s relationship could not solve the problems between the families and the Friar was only uniting them. This is what made the Friar so repulsive. Even now after deaths and family issues, He treated the situation like a game. “Hold, daughter, I do spy a kind of hope, / Which craves as desperate an execution / As that is desperate which we would prevent (4.1.69-71).
William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” explores true love in amongst feuding families whilst exploiting the notion that deception leads to catastrophic misfortune. The young poetically portrayed Romeo’s inability to control unchecked emotions, directs him to being disloyal amongst family and his “star crossed [lover]” Juliet. Furthermore, Juliet’s love for “(her) Romeo” causes her to turn a blind eye to his disloyalty and hastily act on his “banished”, through these actions she uses trickery to deceive her family and because of her love affected decisions. Friar Lawrence along with the nurse, cause confusion for the hasty lovers which renders to heightening the family’s feud. Shakespeare presents the concept that deceptive decisions lead to tragic events.
The Betrayal of the Only Child In Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, two young lovers, Romeo and Juliet, from rivalling families must hide their love for each other, or face the wrath of their parents. Throughout the play, many characters are subject to a betrayal, or betray someone or something else. For example, Friar Lawrence betrays his duty as a priest in Verona by marrying Romeo and Juliet, and Tybalt betrays Lord Capulet by hunting Romeo. However, the most significant betrayal in the play is Lord and Lady Capulet's betrayal of Juliet by forcing her to marry Paris, and completely disregarding her wants. This betrayal hurt Juliet in many ways, and it hurt her parents a little too, as this would soon lead to her death.
When Tybalt is killed, Lady Capulet, Lord Capulet, and Paris think she is unhappy because of her cousin’s death, which makes Paris respond to this conflict by scheduling the wedding earlier to make Juliet happy again, and that’s one of the biggest conflicts since she told Friar Lawrence she would rather do the most dangerous things than marry Paris. Paris is a very kind-hearted man who treats Juliet like she’s very delicate, he still loved her even though she denied it when he called her his wife. Although he is arrogant, he loves Juliet and he treats the Capulets with admiration and formality, he highly respects Friar Lawrence and gets annoyed with Romeo at the end because
Although the love Romeo and Juliet share is ‘love at first sight’, as the play progresses Juliet's love for Romeo develops into true romantic love - she loves him despite him being a Montague. However, even this kind of love results in being unrequited, as both die for their love at the end of the
During a tremendous argument between Juliet and her mother, Lady Capulet claims that Juliet must marry Paris, an innocent, charming man who wants to marry her, but she refuses and shouts, “ He shall not make me there a joyful bride…I will not marry yet; and when I do, I swear it shall be Romeo” (3.5.132-137). Even though Juliet was already married to Romeo, she could have accepted her fate because of the hatred between the Montague and Capulet families. Yelling at her parents causes them to be mad at her, and lying makes the situation worse. Eventually, the choices the two “star-crossed lovers” made led to their
Although Friar Lawrence’s intentions were good, his decisions and actions were the sole cause of Romeo and Juliet’s death. Do you agree? Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is the story of two young lovers who fall for one another only to realise that due to the feud their families’ share their love is destined for destruction. With all good intentions the minor character, Friar Lawrence was one of, but not the complete cause of their tragic end. There are three dominant aspects of their deaths, the feud between the two families, Friar Lawrence and most importantly, fate.
Romantic Love is experienced by Romeo and Juliet who are both teenagers and have never experienced love before. It is an instant love and attraction. Tension of the Task is created at this first meeting because the mutual attraction is made greater when it is revealed that each is from opposing families and each considering what it means to them and gives insight into their characters.
