489 lines (161-163). That was a line in the book Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare. That quote was said by Romeo in the very beginning of the book because he is so love sick over this girl named Rosaline. Throughout the book Romeo and Juliet, both Romeo and Juliet’s perspective on love changes along with their personalities. As I said before in the beginning of the book Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is gloomy and feeling hopeless about love because Rosaline (the women he “loves”) is not going to get married.
Romeo and Juliet LESSONS WITHIN THE PLAY Ryan Tomlinson Mrs. Bryans December 21, 2012 ENG2D Romeo and Juliet There are many lessons that are taught throughout Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet. There is one larger lesson that is taught in Romeo and Juliet, which is, not to act with haste. Both families, the Capulets and Montagues, had to confront the realities of what lesson they have brought upon themselves. These acts of haste are when Romeo and Juliet decide to get married, Romeo’s decision to get revenge on Tybalt, and the influences of supporting characters. Love will affect people in many ways and make them do crazy things.
Through Friar Lawrence, Shakespeare shows us how shortsightedness will avert our true responsibilities. Friar Lawrence only sees the good effects, but pays no mind to possible mishaps, which causes him to make bad judgments. When Romeo and Juliet fall in love and want to get married, they seek Friar Lawrence to fulfill their desires. At first, Friar Lawrence opposes because he believes that the pace of their relationship is going too fast, but gives in “For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love”(Act 2.3 #98-99). Despite the fact that Friar Lawrence had already thought through some of the consequences, like their relationship is not actual love, he only thought through half of it.
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.
Emma Cutroni Romeo and Juliet Essay Rules were made to prevent bad things from happening. But are all rules really necessary? Sometimes people have to break the rules in order to accomplish tasks. In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Romeo gets news of the Capulet party he crashes it knowing his household isn’t allowed but enters anyway to see Rosaline. Upon arrival he spots Juliet from across the room and asks himself, “Did my heart love till now?” When they first met it was as if the stars aligned and everything was perfect until they realized what household each other were from.
In William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, the two main protagonists are very similar in based of personality traits, but it is also shown that they are still very different individuals and whose characteristics have a bigger impact on the play. Romeo, the son and heir of Montague and Lady Montague, whose actions have escalated the family feud between his family and the Capulets. Romeo was love struck the moment she saw Juliet, that the same day “[they] met, [they] woo’d, and made exchange of vow” (Shakespeare, Act 2 Scene 3 62). In a sudden action of haste, he asked Friar Lawrence “that thou consent to marry us today” (Act 2 Scene 3, 64); all of this because of what he has been feeling ever since he met her. Not only he is impulsive, but he is also devoted.
In my opinion this archetype fits Romeo to a “tee” because Romeo embarked on a great task when he made the choice to get married to Juliet. Romeo went through a lot of work just to arrange a secret wedding. Romeo talked to Friar Laurence to convince him to do the ceremony and to find Juliet’s messenger nurse. All at the same time He got the task done, still knowing that He is in a great sense of danger. The last archetype I chose for Romeo was the fall.
Forswear it, sight!/ For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night/” (1.5.48-50). Romeo was in too much of a hurry to tie the knot with Juliet. Maybe if they’d slowed things down, there could’ve been a happy ending to the play. Then, Juliet encountered hastiness when she didn’t know what to do about the news that she was to marry Paris, so she visited Friar seeking advice. “Well, thou hast
They fall in love rapidly, however can't communicate well as their families don't know and are meant to be sworn enemies. I will be discussing how poor communication leads to the tragedy and how communication varies with different people. The chosen scene, which fits best in describing poor communication, is scene 3 acts 5. This scene is important because it helps us understand the lack of communication. The audience sees this play as a play filled with verbal irony, dramatic irony, however it is most... Romeo and Juliet Act 3 Scene 5 Act 3 Scene 5 is a crucial factor in the entire play as it symbolizes the change which takes place in so many relationships.
For example in Act 1, in the Prologue, the Chorus clearly tells the reader how Romeo and Juliet will die in the end. Another way he shows foreshadowing is by stating in Act 1, scene 4, that Romeo has a bad feeling about the party he is about to attend. Also in Act 1, scene 5, Romeo states how Juliet is the only purpose he lives and how he’ll do anything at his reach to be with her. In the end Shakespeare’s purpose for foreshadowing is to entertain the audience and expect them to be wanting more about the play. He wants the suspense to intrigue us and mainly to captivate out
