/ 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
v line 60). However, Juliet had a different love at first than Romeo; Juliet was more cautious, “dip toes in the water, then dive in.” In my own opinion, I feel that how much you are attracted to someone physically can make you feel as though you were in love, although it would be stupid to act so rash and quickly. The moment that Romeo sees Juliet he states that he is in love. He asks himself if he has ever loved till now (act i sc. v line 59), completely forgetting about Rosaline.
Romeo and Juliet’s love, like the love of the youth, is acted upon very quickly and impulsively. They are impatient and do not stop and think about the consequences of their actions. Their immature and inexperienced management of their love passion for each other ultimately results in their death. Think about Romeo in the very beginning of the play, when he talks about Rosaline. He describes her looks as he says: "O, she is rich in beauty, only poor".
Romeo is discreetly referencing the prologue, where the audience learns that Romeo and Juliet are fated for misfortune. But Romeo also feels Fortune is being especially cruel; he just got married, and he might be put to death. His words
I have chosen to write this paper on Romeo. Romeo is a young noble boy who is the son of Montague who is the head of the Montague family. Romeo fell in love with a young lady by the name of Juliet. Juliet is a Capulet, which are sworn enemies to the Montague family. They decided to get married after their “love fest” in the garden, and this is where their adventure began.
Love as a Cause of Violence in Romeo and Juliet In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, love turns into uncontrolled feelings and actions, leading as much to problems as to happiness. But in its extreme passion, the love that Romeo and Juliet experience also appears so beautiful that few would want, or be able, to resists its power. The romantic love between Romeo and Juliet formed from the moment of its inception with death, Tybalt notices that Romeo has crashed the feast and determines to kill him just as Romeo catches a glance of Juliet he instantly falls in love with her. From this point on love seems to push the couple closer to love and hardships, not farther from it. Although Romeo and Juliet is a powerful and passionate romance, that romance is surrounded by violence, hatred, and chaos, and ultimately, that deep, passionate romance causes so much of the violence in Verona.
The Night and Day Imagery of Romeo and Juliet Portrayed in One Night and Day William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is about two young teenagers, who are passionately in love with each other, but whose families are rivals. The dilemma of Juliet being a Capulet and Romeo a Montague prevents them from easily being in a relationship together. As the play progresses some unfortunate misunderstandings lead to their ultimate death. The play depicts the strong sense of Romeo and Juliet’s deep love through the expression of night and day imagery. One significant use of night and day imagery in this play shows how instantly Romeo and Juliet fall in love with each other.
Romeo is talking in paradoxes; he does this to emphasize that love is confusing. He says that love is everything except for what it actually is. Since Romeo thinks that he is in love although no one loves him, love can be two things that are opposites at the same time. Although Romeo is happy to be in love, he does not like the thought of love itself because if no one loves him back, love will become more confusing. Romeo is hopelessly in love with Rosalind which he explains when he says, "I am too sore enpiercèd with his shaft To soar with his light feathers, and so bound, I cannot bound a pitch above dull woe.
Shakespeare presents the concept that deceptive decisions lead to tragic events. Romeo’s rapidly changing character makes irrational and unwise decisions which link up to a strong and prominent theme in the play; deception. Through Romeo’s character Shakespeare juxtaposes true love against infatuation, he does this by showing his melancholy state over his loss of his infatuation Rosaline, then shows how he has found “true love” with his “bright angel” Juliet through his poetic dialogue, although they are from feuding family’s they decide “what’s in a name”, and she implores him to “doth thy name” and “swear by the god of [her] idolatry”. Shakespeare shows the changing of Romeo’s moral compass throughout the play, he goes from an elated state of mind as life was perfect with “thee”, and then, as the “plague on both (their) houses” is begun by the death of Mercutio, Romeo’s unchecked emotions cause him to commit the disloyal act of murdering his wife’s cousin, Tybalt. Despite of his blundering, Juliet see’s this only as dreadful because of his “banished”.
As surprising as this is for someone who was supposedly ‘love-sick’ over another girl, it is even more amusing because of how it had taken him a few seconds of seeing Juliet before he began announcing his admiration of her. Maybe the audience would find this sweet of Romeo, if it was not for how Shakespeare uses the language that Romeo uses to make him sound over exaggerated and for that reason. We feel somewhat superior over Romeo because we realise that his intentions are not completely pure. We can see this in line 4 when Romeo says’ ‘My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss’ The whole line
