Romeo's Obsession

Decent Essays
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.

At the start of the play he's talking to Mercutio about Rosaline and says, "Out of her favour, where I am in love." (1.1.10)He thinks he is in love with Rosaline but he knows they can never be together. I especially think he didn't really like Rosaline when he forgets about her as soon as he sees Juliet, "Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night."(1.5.1) He says he hadn't seen true beauty until now even though he loved Rosaline a few seconds ago.
