Romeo, the one seen at all the parties and Juliet, soon to be married didn’t know their paths would cross until soon enough it did. Although Romeo had just gone through the loss of a relationship, Romeo and Juliet did, in fact, truly love each other, because the many times they raced to meet each other in secret without their parents’ knowledge, and the final price they each paid for their love.
Romeo and Juliet can’t possibly be in love. They had known each other only a day before they decided that they loved each other so much they wanted to be married. Love is not something that can be rushed and found in five minutes. Romeo said he loved Rosaline but after he saw Juliet he forgot all about her; because of Juliet’s immense beauty. Romeo and Juliet are lusting after each other. They only love each other’s physical appearance. Whenever they talk about why they love each other it is only about physical beauty. They never do anything that doesn’t involve an attraction to the other’s appearance. After only knowing each other for a couple of minutes they are kissing. They never have heart-to-heart talks about life or what they want
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:
The love that Romeo and Juliet had was very intense they weren’t supposed to be together because of family feud. The capulets and montagues are two different families that have different things that aren 't common on each other. Due to this Romeo and Juliet are conscious that what they have can 't happen but true love can cause people to take many risk. For example Romeo and Juliet can’t be together but they can decide to be together without there parents knowing that they feel in love and that they are planning to get married without their parents permission because their love is more important than what their families think about the difference and
The act of falling in love was an experience and privilege that was rare to come by in the society Romeo and Juliet live in. The blessing of marriage was used as an enhancement on one’s social status unlike how our society uses it to celebrate love. As the audience is exposed to more and more of the plot and events that happen in Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, one realizes that love is never formally described or exposed in the play, it is more a shallow feeling that is hiding behind its truth which is infatuation. Romeo has himself, along with the audience for a short period of time believing that he is in love with Rosaline. However,
The first reason that shows Romeo and Juliet are actually in love, is that Romeo is to risk his life to sneak into the Capulet orchard even though, he could get killed if caught. When Juliet realizes Romeo is in the orchard, she immediately fears for his life, but Romeo announces, “My life were better ended by their hate than death prorogued wanting of thy love.”(2.2.78) The quote is
Romeo and Juliet had a doomed love from first laying their eyes on each other. Beginning with two families with a history of war, Romeo and Juliet knew their love for one another was forbidden but, they dare do it anyway. With Shakespeare’s focus on their love, it soon turns into a story of tragedy between two teens who fell madly in love despite being each other's enemy. The play takes a turn as Romeo and Juliet take their own life because their love becomes too strong that they can not bear to live without each other. Shakespeare illustrates this theme with the actions of both characters as they sneak behind their
Romeo and Juliet had not a full-hearted romance, but infatuation from the looks of it. They both were in points of their lives where they felt trapped and had to get out. When they met each other, they both liked each other and they thought that if someone out there liked them that maybe they could take them away from problems and family life. That is what these two people believed would happen. It wasn't real love, they just thought it was. The saying ¨you want it more when you can't have it¨ applies perfectly here. They started to become more infatuated with each other when they realized their families were enemies, that is when the idea of marrying each other came up. This story is famous because its very well written but also pokes fun
Romeo and Juliet's love was very peculiar for that time. Love shows up many times in this play. It is a key part to the moral of the play. Love in this play has lead to may tragedies and fights. The way the William Shakespeare uses love is different that most other plays. In Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare shows how Romeo and Juliet express their love, how people feel about their love and how strong Romeo and Juliet’s love is for one another.
Juliet is being pushed into marrying Paris, which is why the masquerade happened(Act 1, Scene 3). Even Lord and Lady Capulet thought it rather unwise to marry someone you didn’t know at all. Romeo was mentally unstable because of his recent heartbreak over Rosaline the nun to-be. Both Romeo and Juliet meet while each are emotionally vulnerable making it easier to make rash decisions, which in other less rushed scenario may have been the product of love. These circumstances make it difficult to say that Romeo and Juliet were in love, it more suitable to claim that they simply were emotionally vulnerable young
Capulet only said this to Juliet because she refuses to marry Paris and all he wanted to do was make Juliet untroubled. Juliet was forced to marry Paris the day after that in which she went to Friar Lawrence’s cell beforehand. She got an elixir that can solve her problems from Lawrence which made her seem dead, but she is still alive. After all of this, Romeo visits Juliet to sleep with Juliet for eternity in her tomb thinking she is dead by drinking poison. When Juliet has woken up, she found Romeo dead. She retrieved a dagger from Friar to kill herself right next to Romeo, thus how did this tragedy happen.
With respect to Lord Capulet, he says to Paris, “Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender/ Of my child’s love” (III.iv.12-16). Not knowing that Juliet has secretly married Romeo, Lord Capulet arranges a marriage between Juliet and Paris. Shakespeare characterizes Lord Capulet as forceful and unyielding. Because Juliet does not want to marry Paris, she agrees to Friar Lawrence’s dangerous plan that ultimately ends in her death. If Lord Capulet had considered Juliet’s wishes, she would not have had to go along with Friar Lawrence’s suggestion. The literary element, dramatic irony, is demonstrated here because the reader knows that Juliet is already married to Romeo, while Lord Capulet does not. Juliet’s single mindedness also plays a part in her death and that of Romeo. As Juliet drinks the potion that will “kill” her, she says, “Romeo, I come! This do I drink to thee” (IV.iii.58). In the scene, Juliet drinks the potion but fails to consider the consequences. Disaster
“Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast” (2.3.101). Friar Lawrence says this line to Romeo, advising him to not rush his actions, and furthermore, his love. However, the story of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, is full of Romeo and Juliet rushing their decisions and making rash choices that ultimately lead to their death. Romeo and Juliet is set in Verona, where two influential families, the Montagues and Capulets, feud against each other. Romeo, a Montague, falls in love with Juliet, a Capulet, during a party, and they hastily marry each other. A few days after their marriage, Romeo and Juliet both kill themselves, which reunites the Montagues and Capulets. Despite the fact Romeo and Juliet do finally reconcile their families, Romeo and Juliet’s relationship has awful ramifications on Verona, their families, their connections to others, and even themselves. Although love is regarded by society as a positive emotion that brings joy, Shakespeare suggests through Romeo and Juliet that love as a driving force for all actions leads to disastrous consequences.
From the moment he sees her at the Capulet party, Romeo immediately falls in love with Juliet. They both fall head over heels for each other as the night progresses. During their time together, they completely put all things aside and forget everything about the world except for their love for one another. Most people seem to think this way about the romance between Romeo and Juliet, but in reality, they aren’t actually truly in love. Romeo and Juliet are not in love with each other because just a day before they met, he was heartbroken because of a girl named Rosaline who didn't love him, he pressures Juliet to profess her love to him, and after just barely meeting, they both agree to get married.
Instead she meets Romeo. Later on Lord Capulet agrees to the marriage of Paris and Juliet and wants them to be married in three days. Lady Capulet then relays the news to Juliet and says that Lord Capulet will disown her if she doesn’t marry him. Juliet is upset by the news and then goes to Friar Lawrence for help. He then makes the plan for her to drink the poison the day before her wedding so she won’t get married to Paris. The day before the wedding Juliet drinks the poison as planned and the nurse comes in to find her “dead” in her bed and they then prepare for her burial. Romeo is informed by his servant and goes to where juliet is after the funeral and then drinks his poison that kills him and as he does that Juliet wakes up and sees Romeo dead and as a result she ends up killing herself because Juliet wants to be with Romeo and sees that he is dead.
