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.
As I said before in the beginning of the book Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is gloomy and feeling hopeless about love because Rosaline (the women he “loves”) is not going to get married. He says: “She is too fair, too wise, wisely to far, To merit bliss by making
The friar’s lack of communication, Romeo and Juliet’s emotions, and pressure from their families are responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death. In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare shows us that true love is more important than anything else, even family loyalties. He also shows us that love is blind and dangerous. Romeo and Juliet are born into very different families, but fall in love anyway. The actions they take to solve this problem
Romeo is blinded by love, risking the danger of being caught by the Capulet’s and killed outside of Juliet’s balcony. It is safe to say that Romeo’s physical attraction towards Juliet played, not only a small part of his love, but was the entire reason for his love. Romeo and Juliet had never met and knew nothing about the other except what they looked like. Physical attraction is the only reason for love at first sight because you like what they look like and you can make up who they are as a person. You like the idea of you and this beautiful person together.
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.
The Friar responds with, “Young men’s love then lies/ Not truly in their hearts but, in their eyes jesu maria, what the deal of brine/ Hath washes thy sallow cheeks for Rosaline!”(2.3.68-90). In the first act, Romeo thought himself to be in love with Rosaline. Romeo had been distraught over the fact that his beloved Rosaline was going to become a nun. Romeo would never be able to love Rosoline, or be with her. Friar Lawrence makes fun of Romeo saying that young men only love what they see.
He uses love in its guises to thread together the key relationships in the play. Some characters fall in and out of love very quickly in Romeo and Juliet. For example Romeo is in love with Rosaline at the start of the play, which is presented as an immature infatuation. Today we might use the term “puppy love”, to describe this. Romeo’s love for Rosaline is shallow and nobody really believes that it will last.
Analysis: Juliet loves Romeo. She is sad that Romeo has to be a Montague, the rival of her family, the Capulets. Juliet is very daring and caring. Juliet mirrors some girls in today’s society because some girls might disobey their father’s or parents’ wishes to get what they want. A theme in the story is “Overcoming Society, Family and Judgment” because everybody in Verona knows about the feud and Juliet still loves Romeo.
After Juliet has refused to marry Paris, Lady Capulet gets very upset but even she is shocked by Lord Capulet’s reaction and shows this by saying “fie, fie, what, are you mad?” (III, iiiii, 163). This shows how Lady Capulet loves Juliet by attempting to protect her from Lord Capulet’s wrath in an admittedly feeble attempt but an attempt never the less. After Juliet’s “death” Lady Capulet seems to find new stores of maternal instincts while weeping for her. This feeling is supported by the predominant theme of Cat’s in the Cradle by Harry Chapin which is regret for years not better spent with sons or daughters. As the tragedy progressed Lady Capulet became closer to her daughter in how much she cared for
“Romeo and Juliet” is considered by many one of the greatest love stories to have ever been written. However, the tale is not one of love but a story of a young girl whose whims led her to be manipulated by a boy who was seeking out sex. The scene where Romeo and Juliet first meet demonstrates how fickle their infatuation is. The story begins with Romeo wailing over his lost love Rosaline, saying “And, in strong proof of chastity well-armed, from love’s weak childish bow, she lives uncharmed.” He continues his outburst by saying how useless Rosaline is if she is not willing to sleep with him. Benvoilo feels sympathy for the young brokenhearted man and encourages him to go to the Capulet’s party so he will forget the girl.
