He is denying the idea completely, thinking that it would just make him realise how beautiful Rosaline really is. Romeo even risks his life to see Juliet at her balcony, and if he is caught, he will probably be killed. He is that in love with Juliet that nothing can stop him from coming to her balcony – he is fully committed to her. He will even change his name if he needs to, just to be with Juliet: “I take thee…I never will be Romeo.” Act 2 Scene 2 Lines 49-51. Romeo doesn’t want any trouble with Tybalt.
Romeo decided that he was in love with Juliet upon sight without knowing who she was (Shakespeare 924). This was a terrible choice Romeo had literally no idea who she was and this could have stopped the whole conflict of the play. Romeo then ignored his dreams which he believed told his destiny (Shakespeare 921-1009). While if Romeo listened to these dreams which he believed told the future he would have been much more cautious because he would know that he was going to die prematurely. Also, by him listening to his dreams he would have made either little or no poor choices later in the play which results in his death.
The ultimate fate and destiny of Romeo and Juliet who would do anything to be together but the tragedy of death cannot be avoided because of their own actions,; young immature love and the barriers of a long standing family feud. Romeo and Juliet’s fate is caused by their poor decision making and immaturity. At the beginning of the play Romeo is madly in love with Rosaline, but when Romeo lays eyes on Juliet from afar he forgets Rosaline instantly and he falls in love with Juliet. Romeo’s love for Juliet is immediate and spontaneous, love at first sight. “O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright.
‘Good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as my own.’ The audience know the reason why Romeo won’t fight Tybalt, which is because Romeo and Juliet are now married. ‘The reason that I have to love thee.’ The audience know that Romeo must love Tybalt because they are now related. The other characters did not know about the wedding and are confused by what Romeo is saying. The dramatic irony in this scene makes it such an intense scene to watch. It is also a significant scene because it leads to Mercutio fighting Tybalt and Mercutios death.
Romeo and Juliet frequently notice signs, such as when Romeo believes that Juliet is dead, he cried, ‘then I defy you, stars,’ (Act V, Scene I, Line 24) confirming the idea that Romeo and Juliet’s love, was not a part of their fate. The mechanism of destiny is clear in all areas involving the lovers: the feud between their families, the disasters that ruin Friar Lawrence’s plans and the tragic timing of Romeo’s suicide and Juliet’s awakening. These are not simple coincidences, but a manifestation of destiny, which causes the unavoidable deaths of Romeo and Juliet. “If only...” If only the letter was delivered to Romeo, if only Juliet had woken up sooner, if only fate was on their side. Against all odds, Romeo and Juliet did not give up their love for each other, right to the very end.
From the very start of the play when Romeo falls in love with Juliet to just hours before he dies, his life is fraught with misfortune. Some people may disagree with me and argue the point that there is no such thing as bad luck, and you yourself determine what is going to happen in your life. Romeo has to be able to control himself when bad things get in the way of his path. Romeo should have been able to control his own emotions and calm himself even slightly from when his best friend, Mercutio passed away. This, hopefully would have resulted in him not killing Tybalt.
Romeo’s fickle heart in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet In Shakespeare’s most famous love story people often forget that Romeo had another love interest before Juliet. Romeo was at first interested in Rosaline, a woman who never even utters a line in the play. Romeo is denied by Rosaline and falls in love with Juliet only days later. In fair Verona, Romeo is venting his frustrations to Benvolio about Rosaline, when he explains “She will stay siege of loving terms/ nor bide th’ encounter of assailing eyes/ nor ope her lap to saint-seducing gold”(1.1.215-218). Romeo is frustrated Rosaline has not responded to his cliché attempts to woo her.
Throughout the story, (Romeo and) Juliet have been secretive about their relationship. Since Juliet has kept it a secret from her parents, and the people around them. The Nurse and Friar Laurence were the few to truly know about it. If their parents or even the Prince knew about Romeo and Juliet being together, the play would’ve turned out completely different in Acts 3-5. For instance, Juliet’s parents probably would’ve canceled the marriage or Juliet and Paris earlier in the play, or even Romeo’s banishment never would’ve been delayed.
Some even refrain to believe it even exists. However it could not have been possible for Romeo to experience love at first site. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare talks of the two characters as lovers at first sight. For example when Romeo first sees Juliet during her parents' banquet. His reaction in Act I scene iv shows that Juliet's appearance greatly affects him “O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
This is false because they may seem to be in love, however, Romeo noticeably only loves Juliet for her looks based off of his comparison of her to celestial objects whilst expressing his love. Moreover, Juliet is uncertain of her feelings throughout their entire story, but because of Romeo’s foolhardy love for Juliet, they progressed with their relationship at too fast of a pace, causing numerous accounts of danger and mistakes, resulting in a flawed relationship that sadly ended in both their deaths. If they were to get to know each other better and take their love more slowly, it would show that they are truly in love, but sadly the course they chose to partake, made for inevitable doom in their
