Reckless Decisions In William Shakespeare’s play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the Capulet and the Montague families create a boundary between the love of Romeo and Juliet. Throughout the play, the audience believes that the couple are “star-crossed lovers,” or that fate destined them to be together. However, is this true? Rather than fate having ultimate control, one is able to make accurate decisions for themselves to control the events that will happen. It might have all been a coincidence.
The young teens focus on romantic love, specifically the intense passion that springs up at first sight between them. Love in Romeo and Juliet is a brutal, powerful emotion that captures individuals and catapults them against their world, and, at times, against themselves. Relationships are also a major focal point of the play, as they are two star struck teenagers with an addiction to each other to the point of Juliet faking a death just to be with Romeo forever. The play, rather than presenting a specific statement of love, portrays the chaos and passion of being in love, combining the themes of love, passion, family, and violence, and how they conflict with each other. Romeo and Juliet’s love, like the love of the youth, is acted upon very quickly and impulsively.
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
Nurse’s first fault was sneaking messages to and from Romeo and Juliet to one another. This shows that she approves and is encouraging their relationship together. This influenced Juliet’s decision to marry Romeo, making Nurse’s actions partly at blame for Juliet’s fate. After Romeo’s banishment, Nurse tells Juliet that “I think you are happy in this second match” with Paris. The quick encouragement of the marriage to Paris shows Nurse’s new disloyalty to Juliet.
In the play “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare love is an important theme. In this play, Juliet and Romeo fall in love while Romeo is trying to get over Rosalind and Juliet is having an arranged marriage, their families are also feuding. In Shakespeare's play, Mercutio, Romeo and Juliet all have different views of love. Mercutio’s view of love is very humorous and not true, Romeo’s view of love is hopeless; he likes being in love, but does not like love itself. Lastly, Juliet’s view of love is logical; she does not follow love blindly.
Supporting Characters: Friar Lawrence and the Nurse The roles of Friar Lawrence and the Nurse are hugely important in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The Friar’s well meant but ill advised meddling leads to serious complications in the lives of all those surrounding him. Also, the Nurse’s somewhat vulgar sense of humour leads to much comic relief and displays the aspect of physical love. Friar Lawrence acts as a person for Romeo to confide in, to go to for support and guidance. The Friar, in good nature, takes advantage of that.
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”.
