When Capulet, Juliet's father, orders her to marry Count Paris within the week, she cannot bare the thought of it and needs to find a way to be with Romeo once more. And so seeks help from Friar Laurence, which is when he comes up with this genius yet lethal plan.
Lord Capulet’s firm and merciless control can also be blamed for pushing his daughter to the extreme and ultimately her untimely death. When Juliet refuses to marry Paris, Lord Capulet proves his insensitivity, even threatening to disown his daughter and cast her to the streets if she does not obey his wishes. He warns her that she may “graze where [she] will, [she] will not house with [him]… for, by [his] soul, [he] will ne’er acknowledge [her]” (III v 200-205). These threats instill fear in Juliet, and in her despair, she seeks the advice of Friar Lawrence who gives her a potion that will make it appear as if she is dead the morning of the wedding. Lord Capulet can be blamed for his stubbornness and insensitivity despite his daughter’s sincere requests not to marry Paris.
This does not allow Juliet to make her own decision. An example of this is when Lady Capulet reinforces the plan in which Paris would be Juliet's husband, rather than letting Juliet choose who she marries. Lady Capulet speaks for Juliet when she says “marry, my child, early next Thursday morn.” Having little to no knowledge aforetime about this news, Juliet is utterly astonished. Lady Capulet continues by saying “[the] young and noble gentleman, the county Paris... shall happily make thee there a joyful bride” (III.v.112-115). After having already prepared her life with Romeo, Juliet is in disbelief that her mother would not attempt to step into her father's plan. Juliet lashes back at her mother by saying “I will not marry yet” and threatening that she would marry Romeo “whom you know I hate” rather than Paris (III.v.115-122). The lack of communication between the two characters makes them distant from one another, and the little effort provided by Lady Capulet to approach her daughter is the main reason for this occurrence. The control Lady Capulet has over different characters and her
Juliet’s parents’ lack of knowledge of their daughter’s love life contributes to her death. In Act 3 Scene 5 Lady Capulet walks in on Juliet crying and assumes the tears are for her deceased cousin Tybalt. Shakespeare uses dramatic irony while Lady Capulet and Juliet speak about Romeo. Juliet says to her mother “Indeed, I shall never be satisfied / With Romeo, till I behold him –dead” The reader knows, while Lady Capulet is unaware, that Juliet is speaking about him in a loving way rather than wishing him dead. Also in this scene Lady and Lord Capulet tell Juliet that they have arranged for her to marry Paris. When Juliet refuses her father yells at her and accuses her of being ungrateful. The Capulets are not aware that Juliet is already married therefore are not understanding of her wishes to
Romeo and Juliet deceive others due to the poor guidance they receive about their situation. They resort to deceit as a resolution for their desperate situations. Friar Laurence performs their secret marriage as he believes that this alliance could ‘…Turn [their] household’s rancour to pure love’. Juliet is later forced to marry Paris and asks the Nurse for assistance. The Nurse replies that Juliet is ‘…better in this second match’. The Nurse helped Juliet to marry Romeo but as the situation becomes tricky, she betrays Juliet and encourages her to marry Paris; she provides poor guidance in doing so. This poor advice convinces Juliet to consider a plan involving a ‘desperate… execution’. This desperate execution is provided to Juliet by Friar Laurence who provides Juliet with a potion that puts her in a sleep like death. The Friar
He does, however, later learn that she is a Capulet. They get married the day after the Capulet ball. Romeo sneaks out to the Capulet’s garden to see Juliet. There, they have a conversation declaring their love for each other. At the end the Nurse is calling Juliet, and Juliet decides that she want to get married as soon as possible. Doing this is a poor choice because she doesn’t know Romeo, all he did was charm her and that’s what Juliet thinks she is in love with. She doesn’t think of all of the consequences, and decides on the spot: “If that thy bent of love be honorable, Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow, By the one that I’ll procure to come to thee…” (II.ii.150-152). They are getting married, blinded by their infatuation for each other, they don’t think about what can happen if the rest of their families find out. This is a poor choice because they really haven’t thought it through, and it is not be the brightest idea, seeing as they are coming from feuding families. These choices lead them to do anything for each other, because they love each other and continue to lead to their demise.
The first time that love is explored during the play is when Romeo first speaks of Rosaline and his passion for her, even though he is ‘Out of her favour’ (I.i.159) which is a powerful statement as it shows that Romeo still has these feelings for Rosaline even though he knows she doesn’t feel the same. This is also the first occasion where love and hate coincide as Romeo is speaking about Rosaline when he hears of the duel and comments ‘Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love’ (I.i.166). The fact that the conversation switches from love to hate and visa versa so quickly shows that the two themes are closely linked and that one has an effect on the other. In this passage of speech Romeo speaks as a ‘Petrachan Lover’ as he elevates Rosaline in his language. He uses oxymorons such as ‘O loving hate’ (I.i.167) and ‘Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health’ (I.i.171) to add effect and drama to his speech, and his language is so exagerated it makes the audience believe that he really is in love.
The hatred between the Montagues and the Capulets triggered Friar Laurence to give Juliet a sleeping potion, an action with grave consequences. Her dilemma is that her father, Capulet, is ordering her to marry Paris but she can't because it would go against her religion because she is married in secret to Romeo. Juliet asks Friar Laurence for a solution to her dilemma. The Friar proposes that Juliet take a special potion that would make it seem like she were dead. This is the Friar's instructions to Juliet as to when to take the potion and the effects of the potion:
Second, when Juliet was asked about marriage and when she wanted to be wedded, she told her parents she had no interest in marrying, and she thought she was too young. “Marry, that 'marry' is the very theme I came to talk of.—Tell me, daughter Juliet, How stands your disposition to be married? It is an honor that I dream not of.”(1.3.68-71) This is the first time Juliet is asked about marriage, and she clearly makes it known that she is not interested. Out of nowhere, Capulet arranges the marriage of Juliet and Paris on Thursday. Juliet says she does not want to be married to Paris, and says that she will not truly be happy. Lord Capulet does not like what Juliet says, and gets very angered with her. He even goes on to say that she is not welcome under his roof if she doesn’t marry him. Without having any support from her parents, Juliet feels very alone. First, she does not want to get married to Paris, and second, she is in love with a Montague. This is all frowned upon from both families, and the only people Juliet seems to trust are Friar Lawrence, and the Nurse. Unfortunately, Nurse even suggests she marry Paris, so the only people she feels are on her side are Friar Lawrence and Romeo. When Romeo and Juliet decide to take their own lives, the fact that they didn't have many other people besides themselves made suicide more appealing to them.They were desperate to be with each other.
Juliet did not want to marry Paris for Juliet was married to Romeo. Juliet Decided to go to the Friar for help but to get help she threaten to kill herself. The Friar decided to give Juliet a potion that would lower her breathing rate and pulse which would make her look dead. When Romeo heard about Juliet's death he goes to Verona to kill himself and be with her in the tomb. When Romeo is in Verona at the Capulet tomb Paris sees Romeo and goes to kill him Romeo for Romeo is banished.
Tybalt should not have seeked revenge on Romeo and killed Mercutio. If Tybalt would have stopped seeking revenge on Romeo then he would not have killed Mercutio and they would still be alive. He was not justified in taking another life to please his own desires for revenge. “I have a reason to love you that lets me put aside the rage I should feel and excuse that insult”. (act 1 scene 3). This shows that Romeo was willing to forgive Tybalt and he should do the same. They should have worked out their differences through words and not actions. ”Before I could break up the fight, Tybalt was killed.”This shows because Tybalt killed Romeo's friend Mercutio, Tybalt ended up dying because of his desire for revenge. Tybalt and Romeo were not justified in taking a life.
Love and hate are two very powerful things. Love may bring people together, and hate may push them apart. Romeo and Juliet a tragedy, where love conquers hate. In the play, Romeo first thinks that he loves a Capulet, Rosaline. Then he falls into forbidden love with a Montague named Juliet. Romeo and Juliet meet at a party and realize that this must be true love. The fact that Romeo and Juliet are not supposed to be together drives their love even more. In the play “Romeo and Juliet”, William Shakespeare teaches reader that love overcomes hate because Romeo and Juliet go to extreme lengths to be with each other and the feud is broken from the bond of love between Romeo and Juliet.
Hate is more powerful in the play because it leads to more people getting hurt. The feud is one of the main conflicts because of hate that leads to more death. the feud is really the main reason any conflict in the play exists. Romeo and Juliet fall and love and the only reason there is a problem is because of the feud. If there was no feud then there really wouldn't be much a problem with them getting married. Also, the hate from the feud caused Mercutio's death and indirectly, Tybalt's. Without any of the of the hate, there wouldn't be the problems and therefore hate is the most destructive in the play.
The novel, Romeo & Juliet is written by William Shakespeare, the story takes place in Verona,Italy; it's about two families ( the Capulets and Montagues ). These two families are enemies but despite that, their are ones from the families that love each other; Romeo Montague & Juliet Capulet. Although their lust for one another, they can't tell their families. Knowing such news would cause a conflict, they must keep it a secret from each family. In this novel I believe that hate is stronger than love because most of the story is a drama, fighting and death not just from the families but from other people too.
