The Way Juliet Feels in Act 3 Scene 2 of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
In Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, emotional maturity is only very loosely linked to time. Traditional concepts of patience and dignified waiting are swapped for hasty decisions in the face of intense passion and looming dates. For a girl of only thirteen, the play’s events are likely to seem overwhelming. However, Juliet is, in general, emotionally mature in that she is considerate of the well-being of herself and others, extremely aware of her feelings, and selective in what suggestions she will heed.
Understanding the Romeo and Juliet’s contrasting natures, love and hate, life and death, at last but not least, missions and reality provides greater insight into how Shakespeare dominate the history of world’s literature culture and serve as a international icon for the past 500 years. If one of the two is missing, then the other one would not exist. Vivian, “There isn’t growing without battles; there isn’t light without darkness; there isn’t freedom without chains; there isn’t happiness without sorrow. That’s life, a bittersweet melody.” March 27, 2011, Comment.
Romeo and Juliet is a famous play that was first performed between 1594 and 1595, it was first printed in 1597. Romeo and Juliet is not entirely fictional as it is based on two lovers who lived in Verona. The Montague’s and Capulet’s are also real. Romeo and Juliet is one of the ten tragedies that William Shakespeare wrote. In this essay, I aim to investigate what act 1, scene1 makes you expect about the rest of the play.
However, there was an intense moment of despair when Romeo was caught in a brawl and banished away. This was an emotional time, for the two had just gotten married. Romeo went away that night and Juliet sobbed for days. Everyone tried to comfort her, but only Juliet’s secret lover could heal her throbbing heart. This emotion is displayed yet again when Romeo finds that Juliet is “dead”. He is so torn apart that he decides to join his love with a bottle of baneful toxin. She then wakes up from a deathly slumber to find her lover dead. Out of anguish, Juliet pierces herself with his dagger.
The story, Romeo and Juliet carried a constant theme of love and death. William Shakespeare wrote this play with several different ideas in mind. He tried to have a romance story that still incorporated violence as well as comedy making a play that all classes of people would enjoy. He succeeded by making one of the most famous plays of all time.
