Quote on the topic of Love and Hate PRINCE:Where be these enemies? Capulet! Montague!See, what a ... Have lost a brace of kinsmen: all are punished. Because of the Capulet’s and Montague’s feud they have lost the most important things in their lives, their children. Loyalty: Examples The nurse was very loyal to Juliet throughout the whole play Friar Lawrence was loyal to both Romeo and Juliet(helping them secretly marry) Romeo was loyal to his and Juliet’s marriage when he does not act upon Tybalt’s challenge to fight Mercutio is loyal when he acts upon Tybalt’s challenge to Romeo.
If Capulet had not moved up the wedding the Juliet and Romeo could have happily escaped together. Finally, the family feud between the Capulet’s and the Montague’s. During the beginning of the story the chorus gives us a story overview by saying, “From forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star crossed lovers take their life” (7). If the two families were never feuding then Romeo and Juliet could have been happily married. The feud is the main issue in the story.
Shakespeare employs Friar Lawrence as one of these characters that abets the death of Romeo and Juliet as he fails to deny the two “star crossed lovers” any part in marriage instead aiding their eventual demise through the careful yet greatly flawed plan where Friar Lawrence “gave thee remedy” that formed the basis of the two characters deaths. Not only was Lawrence to blame but it can also be said that parents of Juliet, Lord and Lady Capulet were also at fault forcing their young daughter into early marriage to a man in Paris who Juliet had no feelings for. Her father, Lord Capulet stated “…you will not wed, I’ll pardon you, graze where you will, you shall not house with me.” Here it is evident if Juliet were not to marry Paris her father will “excuse” her to find another home. Such tactics used by Shakespeare prove that Juliet had been terribly misguided from an early age and show that her demise was set up due to poor parenting
However, sometimes wives become stifled by their husband’s controlling hand. A husband’s masculinity and commanding nature can have the tendency of taking over a marriage. The couple’s entire relationship can appear to be perfect to an outsider, when in reality the husband is the force controlling their lives. There are two couples this year who I felt exhibited the characteristics of having relationships dominated by the male figure. Rose and Troy Maxson from the play Fences by August Wilson and Tom and Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald each have extraordinarily dynamic marital ties.
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.
As soon as they meet and get married they are instantly stuck together for life even if they are not married. According to Hester the marriage was never a true marriage out of love, but just an attempt at a better life, but despite this fact Chillingworth still loved and cared for Hester as if some kind of love would come back to him in return. This odd couple will forever be tied together because of the muddy past they had that was never resolved for Chillingworth until he finds out with whom Hester committed adultery with.
Lord Capulet’s attitude just suddenly changed because he would rather have a great family reputation instead of his only daughter marrying her love. “Not proud you have, but thankful that you have. Proud can I never be of what I hate, but thankful even for hate that is meant love.” 3. What is the Nurse’s advice to Juliet? Why is this hurtful to her?
In either case, no-one would have died. Also the Friar’s plan, to save Juliet from a second marriage, was flawed. He didn’t think about it properly and it backfired which directly influenced the death of Romeo and Juliet. The nurse also encouraged the couple to get married. She was Juliet’s confidant and was more of a mother to her than her actual mother.
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.
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.
