One was his quick transition of love from Rosaline to Juliet. After Rosaline rejects Romeo, soon afterwards, at the Capulet’s party, Romeo meets only Juliet briefly yet, immediately declares himself in love with her* If Romeo did not have the flaw of falling in love too quickly and deeply, it would have perhaps, prevented the chaos that would have ensured later on in the story when Juliet and got involved with each other. *“Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till the night.” ( Act 1 scene 5, lines 52 – 53) Another flaw in Romeo’s character was his unpremeditated thinking.
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
He later, then sneaks onto Juliet’s balcony where he openly tells her that he is in love with her. Juliet warns him saying that if anyone were to find him there, he would be killed. But, Romeo being the stubborn boy he is, replies with “And but thou love me, let them find me here.” and decides to risk his life for a girl he barely knows. He then impulsively asks for her hand in marriage “Thy exchange of thy love’s faithful vow for mine.” (Act II, ii, 124) based on the romantic emotions he was feeling at the moment. This was careless and senseless of Romeo to do, as a couple of hours ago he was “in love” with Juliet’s cousin Rosaline.
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.
Doomed Love The story of Romeo and Juliet is a true tragedy. The star-crossed lovers captivate you in their tale of betrayal and heartbreak. Their love is so strong that it makes you love them even more. Their love makes them forget everything and do anything to be together, even die. Romeo and Juliet’s love is doomed not only by the world around them but also by its intensity, because it leads them to death, to be completely blind and oblivious to their lives, and it caused them to move too quickly.
Romeo for his immature behaviour and killing Tybalt which made him banished, Friar Lawrence for helping the two lovers in their plans to be together, and love, because Romeo and Juliet were so deeply in love they could not live without each other so they both killed themselves. Without these three key elements in the play Romeo and Juliet would not have been
/ For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (I.v.50-51) This shows his impulsiveness by not mentioning Rosaline at all and starting to fall in love with a girl he does not even know. Yet does he know she is a Capulet. Romeo’s action of falling in love leads to much grief of others. It leads to the deaths of Romeo, Juliet, Tybalt, Mercutio, Paris, and Lady Montague. The fates and lives of these people, Romeo included, could have been spared if his tragic flaw had not taken over when
Many things can get in the way of true love. Love makes people do crazy things. In the play Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, the main character's parents get in the way of the main character's love. It was the parents fault that lead to the death of Romeo and of Juliet. The battle and hate of the two households force Romeo into getting banished.
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.
To Love or Not to Love The greatest loves have the most tragic endings. Love is something that everyone desires, and most people will do anything to obtain it. Once they have it, they will to anything to keep it. In the play, Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare demonstrates how youth and inexperience, when combined with love, can lead to impulsive decisions that result in tragedy. Romeo’s rash actions, Juliet’s fast-paced response to love, and their fatal choices tragically end their lives, showcasing the unfortunate outcome of their quick actions.
