Furthermore, when Romeo is expressing his love for Juliet he states “My life were better ended by their hate,/ Than Death prorogued, wanting of thy love." (2.2.77-78). This scene is only the second time Romeo and Juliet meet, which shows the audience how immense their love is for each other. During this scene, Juliet tells Romeo that she would like to marry him, and Romeo agrees. However, Romeo states that he would rather die because of the Capulets hate, then be alive and fight for their love.
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
Romeo and Juliet is a play exploring the love of two young people. Their passion overrides their reason and emphasizes its tragedy, “A pair of star-cross’d lovers” who take their lives. Love and Relationships is the greatest theme of Romeo and Juliet. It is naturally the plays most dominant and important theme. The young teens focus on romantic love, specifically the intense passion that springs up at first sight between them.
Romeo also implies he feels something bad is going to happen which will ultimately end in his death. 5,1,6 “I dreamt my lady came and found me dead” dramatic irony is found in this quote as Shakespeare was trying to hint the audience that something bad is going to happen. In conclusion, disobeying authority or it can have bad results is an important theme of Romeo and Juliet. Nevertheless, authority is not the main message, love and fate are as important as
Although both sides of this controversy have merit, I believe that the title characters in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet are truly in love because they would die for each other, they went behind their parents’ backs and risked getting caught and they got married so they were committed to each other. The first reason why I think Romeo and Juliet are truly in love is because they would die for each other and in this case they actually did. “ Here’s to my love! Drinks. O true apothecary!

This is true because in both all three fights, only the men are involved. Juliet faces some gender problems when her dad chose a husband for her and threatens to disown her if she does not agree to this marriage. Hate Hate is a theme in Romeo and Juliet because even though love and hate are usually opposites, in “Romeo and Juliet,” love and hate are two sides of the same play, as they are children from fighting families (the Capulets and the Montagues.) In the end, the hatred between their two families leads Romeo and Juliet towards their death. When their parents discover Romeo and Juliet dead in each others' arms, they speak to end the feud between the families.
(Stabs herself) There rust and let me die.”-P. 579 lines (169-171). It’s really sad that all of this could have been avoided if Juliet would’ve just left with Romeo or if their families gave up their hatred for one another. Throughout Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s personality drastically changes. At first Romeo was love-sick and Juliet didn’t want anything to do with marriage. Then they meet, fall in love and get married.
This happiness is sharply contrasted to the sadness and anger that takes over, when Balthasar tells Romeo of Juliet’s death. The true tragedy is that the reader knows Friar Lawrence sent a message to Romeo telling him of Juliet’s fake death and that Romeo had not yet received the news. Balthasar’s news results in Romeo immediately buying poison and rushing to Verona with the intent of dying beside Juliet. “A dram of poison; such soon-speeding gear/As will disperse itself through all the veins/That the life-weary taker may fall dead” (5.1, 63-65). It is through all of these errors and mistakes that the plot of Act 5, Scene 1 helps to make Romeo and Juliet a true tragedy.
When true love happens people will go to the ends of the Earth to be together. Fate plays a major role in Romeo and Juliet in numerous ways. They would do anything for one another and throughout the play the reader is able to tell they are defiantly meant for one another. In our society today, it is hard to find a love like that of Romeo and Juliet but anything is possible with fate. Two star-crossed lovers go against their parent’s will since Juliet’s cousin is now dead and Romeo dreams that he should not go to the party, with that he ends up taking his own life.
