Divorces were unknown; it was meant lo live forever with the one person you love. “Love at first sight”, was commonly the tradition for an engagement. In reality this might not be called a happy love story, as modern society has now new rules. Even though it’s true, people perceive love different as time pass, even in Shakespeare times, the difference was felt. Then there would be a close relationship between, this “rules of marriage” and comedy, in the play.
v line 60). However, Juliet had a different love at first than Romeo; Juliet was more cautious, “dip toes in the water, then dive in.” In my own opinion, I feel that how much you are attracted to someone physically can make you feel as though you were in love, although it would be stupid to act so rash and quickly. The moment that Romeo sees Juliet he states that he is in love. He asks himself if he has ever loved till now (act i sc. v line 59), completely forgetting about Rosaline.
Therefore, Romeo Montague is indeed, Impulsive and Devoted. On the other hand, Juliet, the only child and heir of the Capulets, begins the play as a naïve child who thought so little about love and marriage. But she then made it a priority, when she met Romeo. She was happy enough to obey her parents about marrying Paris, in where they think he is the ideal man for her, but all of that changes when Romeo became a part of her life. Unfortunately, “[her] only love sprung from [her] only hate!
However, Romeo is not solely at fault. Juliet is able to see that Romeos proposition is “…too rash, too unadvised, too sudden”, but fails to reject it in hopes of an eventual excepting response from her family. Friar Laurence is also staggered by Romeos request that he marry them, however, after consideration he explains, “For this alliance may so happy prove. To turn your households' rancor to pure love.” Without looking at the possible consequences the Friar’s impetuous choice to marry Romeo and Juliet, fundamentally precipitates the lovers to their deaths. Arguably, haste’s negative consequences only begin after Romeo and Juliet have been married.
In the play, The Tragedy of Romeo and juliet, by William Shakespeare, a famous poet, is a tale of a young teenage couple from two feuding families that fall in love one night and die about three days later. Some may say that the families and the prince were responsible for the tragedy, but the one who should have most of the blame is friar Lawrence. Despite his help on marrying the younger lovers, he’s to blame for his plan on preventing another marriage, his reasons to marry the two, and the consequences of what he did. Although his reason to marry Romeo and juliet was a good intention, however he knew the consequences of the marriage and was ignorant of the prince’s word. The intention was that he’ll marry the two lovers in order for the families to stop their feud and because
In Act 3 scene 5 Romeo and Juliet have just woken up. Romeo says he must leave but Juliet doesn't want him to go: "Thou need'st not to be gone." Shakespeare coveys a loving and caring atmosphere through his use of language in this scene: "believe me, love, it was the nightingale." Capulet decides Juliet will get married to Paris in three day’s time. It is important this is revealed before the scene as it creates dramatic irony because the audience knows such a significant detail of the play, yet Juliet doesn't, even though it's her getting married.
FATE Some people do not believe that fate is something that truthfully exists in this world. William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet has extremely crucial force, pulling the characters into their place. It is fate. Due to this fate, the two young lovers are able to meet in the first place. The moment Romeo and Juliet meets is the exact incident that leads them to their death.
However, when Juliet schemes to marry Romeo, and withholds this truth from her parents, then schemes her own death to get out of an arranged marriage everything just comes to an end. Juliet does not see any other way to get out of the mess she made by lying and deceiving her parents, other than faking her death. In the end, if Juliet was honest with her family then she and Romeo would not have died. Instead, the town would be celebrating the prosperous marriage of two families. According to Isaac Asimov, “The mutual grief ends the feud; as it might, so easily, have ended days earlier in mutual joy” (Asimov, 498).
In addition, dramatic irony also occurs at the Capulets’ party, when Romeo and Juliet meet each other and fall in love. However, Juliet does not know that Romeo is a Montague, and sees no harm in being with him. This leads to their uncontrollable love, and eventually
“To say the truth, Reason and love keep little company nowadays.” This quote from Bottom means that reason and love are not related and love is often unreasonable. The idea that Bottom expresses with this quote is seen throughout the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and not only with the four lovers. Love being unreasonable is shown in A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Hermia’s forced relationship with Lysander, Theseus and Hippolyta’s relationship and Helena’s with Demetrius. In the time that A Midsummer Night’s Dream is set arranged marriage was the norm and all young women could expect their father to arrange their marriage and find a suitable husband for her. The marriage would go ahead regardless of whether the women loved the man that their father arranged for them to marry.
