HOW SHAKESPEARE PRESENTS ROMEO’S FEELINGS IN ACT 1 SCENE 1 AND ACT 2 SCENE 2 Love is an important theme in most of Shakespeare’s play, including in Romeo and Juliet because love is a stronger force than all the animosity and forces of fate in Romeo and Juliet. In Romeo and
Throughout the course of the play, it is revealed in many ways this is a story of artificial devotion in which Juliet is in love, and Romeo is merely infatuated. Although Shakespeare is known to many as a “love expert”, the story of Romeo and Juliet is equivalent to an impersonal Valentine’s Day card. Love is all around, but true love is something very hard to find. Due to the lack of support for a truly love based relationship, it is easily seen that this is not a case of true love, but just a partial
Romeo at the beginning of the play doesn't have the most level-headed understand of what real love is and as an example at the beginning of the play he has "fallen in love" with Rosaline and proclaimed that she is the perfect example of a women. Then later on completely forgets about her after seeing Juliet. This gives the reader the sense that Romeo is not very deep in his feelings for women and has a more superficial idea of what love is. Throughout the play though Shakespeare was able to convey how Romeo has matured in his attitude toward love from a shallow desire to a profound and intense passion. His fidelity toward Juliet is quite abstract in the sense that he loves her enough to commit suicide because he feels that he is not able to continue his lie without her which is a demonstration of his faithfulness and loyalty to her. In Romeo and Juliet Romeo is driven by his emotions a lot of the time when making decisions. Examples of him doing this are that because of anger compels him to kill Tybalt in a duel to avenge to death of his friend and despair causes him to take his own life upon hearing of Juliet's death. He also is driven many times by his love for Juliet. Love forces him to make the reckless decision to sneak into the garden of his enemy's daughter and risk death only to catch a glimpse of her. These intense depths of feeing are what drive the character in this story
Romeo and Juliet is a play that shows how intense relationships between two young people can be, this is shown in the love that Romeo and Juliet have for each other. Then how Reckless Romeo and Juliet are stating they would kill each other if anything were to happen to the other. Finally the grief they have when they learn that the other is dead causes them to kill themselves shows the final intensity of their love. Shakespeare is trying to caution quick love or love that is created in an instant and has no thought or reason behind it.
He is heartbroken that Rosaline does not return the love he has for her and prone to becoming fond of another woman. As shown in Act 1 of the play, fate manipulates Romeo and Juliet into a lovesick relationship that can only lead to a very tragic end.
Romeo is very dramatic and obsessed with love. In the beginning he is obsessed with being in love, it doesn't seem like he loves Rosaline, he just wants to be in love with someone. But by the end of the book I think he might actually love Juliet.
How is Romeo presented in the first two acts of Romeo and Juliet? In the first two acts of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is presented as a young, love struck man. He is a dreamer and a fantasist. The audience feels sympathetic towards him because love is taking him nowhere.
When Juliet finds out that Tybalt has been killed and Romeo is in exile, for killing Tybalt, Juliet feels both passionate about Romeo and disappointed in both Romeo and herself, which reveal her inner struggle. In Act 3, Juliet’s Nurse comes back with this news that Tybalt is dead and that Romeo is such an awful person for killing him. Juliet fights back at the Nurse, and herself, for speaking bad about Romeo. She claims, ““Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband? Ah, poor my lord, what tongue shall smooth thy name, When I, thy three hours' wife, have mangled it? But wherefore, villain, didst thou kill my cousin? That villain cousin would have killed my husband.” (3.2.99-101). This shows that Juliet is passionate about Romeo, because first of all, she says that she was wrong to say bad things about her husband.
Romeo and Juliet, though termed as tragedy, love is the dominating and most vital theme of this play, the whole play is intertwined on the romantic love between Romeo and Juliet at their first sight, though the love can be considered infatuation love. In this play, the lovers deny the family and the entire world and proceed with their marriage "Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, I” “And I'll no longer be a Capulet" Romeo abandons his close friends, Mercutio and Benvolio and even risks his life and returns to Verona for the sake of his lady love even after being sent in exile. Love becomes a force for every incident narrated in the play. The lovers take impulsive decisions; by this, they go against the norms of this world. Juliet has no words to explain her immense love "But my true love is grown to such excess / I cannot sum up some of half my wealth"
The first kind of love shown in the play is teenage love through Romeo. Montague tells us that "Many a morning hath he (Romeo) been seen... adding to the clouds more clouds with his deep sighs." Romeo is often seen sighing showing that he is either depressed or in love. Romeo is both. He says he is "out of her favour where I am in love". He is "in love" with Rosaline but she has sworn herself to a life of chastity and does not return Romeo's love. Shakespeare mocks Romeo's infatuation with the
Romeo’s misinterpretation of what love is shows a lot in this play. He attends the Capulet’s party just so that he could see Rosaline not to see Juliet. Romeo, being so young, automatically falls in love with Juliet. In act 1, scene 5, and page 394, Romeo states, “Then move not while my prayer’s effect I take. Thus from my lips, by thine my sin is purged. Sin from my lips? O trespass sweetly urged! Give me my sin again.’’Romeo doesn't even know a detail about Juliet and is already kissing her and saying that he loves Juliet. Also in act 2, scene 2, page
Romeo and Juliet were in deep love and if they would have just told there families they would still have a chance to live. The main theme of Romeo and Juliet is "when passion overrules reason, tragedy often follows", this is displayed in every act and every scene. Some events are a little easier to relate to the theme and some are very complicated but they all relate nonetheless. The passion is usually a emotion like love or fear. The reason is sometimes a possible consequence or a why something shouldn't be done. the tragedy is the result of over looking the reason. I think Shakespeare was trying to teach us not to let are emotions get the best of
In the play Romeo and Juliet William Shakespeare shows that young love is deceptive. Shakespeare does this by noting how Romeo and Juliet do not actually love each other. This is represented by Romeo and Juliets actions and rash decision making. Their decisions are very impulsive and rushed. As a result, it will impact them badly in the near future and as well as their relationship. Romeo and Juliet’s love for each other is not actually how we view love as. They’ve mistakenly confused love for lust.
Love can be described as many things, like the feeling you get in your stomach when you see the person you like or even opening the fridge to see that your mom went food shopping, the possibilities are endless but there's one thing for sure, that Romeo and Juliet were
In the early stages of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare conveys love in many different ways. Love is shown as being imperfect, such as bawdy love, unrequited love and fatherly and maternal love, this contrasts greatly to Romeo and Juliet’s pure, perfect and requited love, and makes it seem all the more true before it is shown to be deadly.
