Romeo has built up his feelings and is crazy for Rosaline who in contrast could care less about anything to do with Romeo. Rosaline has no intentions to fall in love with Romeo, marry him or have children with him. But Romeo is blinded by his love for her and refuses to accept that she does not want him back causing him deep depression. Romeo when talking to his good friend Benvolio, explains his feelings, “Why such is love’s transgression. / Griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast, / which thou wilt propagate to have it pressed with more of thine” (Shakespeare1.1.179-182).
Hours after their introduction they fall in love, therefore reflecting the capriciousness of love and the intoxicating nature it has that causes him to make rash and illogical decisions. Within days they hastily get engaged and married at the young age of thirteen and sixteen which makes them reckless and inexperienced lovers. Upon discovering Juliet’s death, Romeo’s ardor and lack of sense of self prevents him from putting his life in perspective as he considers suicide to be his only option. Within the first scene of the play, Romeo’s impulsiveness is evident due to the fact that he is distraught and deeply depressed over Rosaline’s choice to leave him. Romeo displays emotional immaturity by believing that he could never love anyone besides Rosaline.
Strong and independent, Juliet seeks to escape her family’s will to marry her off to Paris, a kinsman of the Prince. Fate ties these adolescents’ lives together binding them to witness the ill-fortunes of Romeo and Juliet’s love. Romeo and Juliet prove themselves woefully impulsive through their words and actions, which ultimately lead them along a series of unfortunate mishaps. Romeo’s numerous rash decisions demonstrates his great impulsiveness. Romeo at first grieves over his unreciprocated love for Rosaline, but after he sees Juliet; he forgets about Rosaline entirely.
They are also too young to love because they are not mature enough. Their lack of maturity influences their decisions, leading to them finding abrupt solutions, such as suicide. After Balthasar told Romeo that Juliet died, he proclaimed, “I do beseech you, sir, have patience/Your looks are pale and wild do import/ Some misadventure” (5.1.27-29). Once Balthasar delivers the tragic news of Juliet’s death to Romeo, Romeo makes a rash decision of going back to Verona, not thinking about the consequences of his act, which would lead to more complications, such as him being... ... middle of paper ... ...t on the spot, and are too immature. Romeo and Juliet’s spring of blind love quickly deepens and causes them to face situation that they have never faced before.
As he takes the poison Juliet arouses and kills herself when Romeo dies; the depth of his feelings for Juliet is finally established Romeo is being true to his convictions. Overall Romeos has an irrational and impulsive nature; this got him into a great deal of dilemma. However if Romeo was not irrational and impulsive he would have never found or experienced true love and the bitter feud between the Montague's and Capulet's would persist.
“O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name, Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I’ll no longer be a Capulet” (2.1.74-78 Shakespeare). Juliet is asking Romeo to defy his family for her affection. She tells him in this scene that she would defy her family as well, and he simply has to say he loves her. Her love for Romeo overrules her destined hate for the Montague name, so much so ... ... middle of paper ... ...istic, they are so blinded by their attraction that they are unable to see their real emotions.
The parent’s hatred blinded them to pay attention to their children’s needs, the love kept Romeo and Juliet together through all costs and the Friar’s plan to avoid the marriage went wrong which lead them to their death. Works Cited Shakespeare, William. Romeo and Juliet. Ed. Dom Salaini, et al.
Romeo and Juliet are driven by love to keep this a secret from everyone because of the hatred between the two families and do not use their conscience to notice the consequences that will come ahead. In the next Act, the deep passion for each other between the two lovers continues and causes Romeo to act abnormally. Another way Shakespeare develops his theme is with diction. Act III begins with Tybalt looking for Romeo because of his anger for Romeo attending a Capulet party. Romeo shows up and Tybalt wants to fight Romeo in which he resists and says that he has a reason to love and to not feel the rage that he normally should.
Even his love for Juliet is shallow as he does not take into account her feelings. Also Paris thinks he is in love with Juliet, despite not even meeting her, only members of her family. This is another example of shallow love. Until the very end of the play, the two families are fighting, losing their lives over their dispute. Even Romeo, one of the characters who shows love, resorts to violence and kills Tybalt, as a result of rage and perhaps revenge; although this was driven by his love for Mercutio.
Romeo also says that "Out of her favour where I am in love" This shows that Romeo is love sick for this girl but she doesn't want to give him anything in return, due to this he cannot forget his love ... ... middle of paper ... ...on his enemy. Later on after the party had finished Romeo sneaked to see Juliet. When Romeo sees Juliet on the balcony talking to herself about Romeo how she loves him but how it impossible for them to be as both of their families are having a feud. Romeo decides to listen you her before replying "Call me but 'love' and I'm be new baptised henceforth I never be Romeo" When Romeo says this to Juliet he suggests to her that hew is prepared to deny his name and his family if she will love him. Romeo also tells Juliet how love overcomes all obstacles, he says that "With love's light wings did I o'eperch these walls for stony limits cannot hold love out" By saying this to Juliet Romeo also tells her that he is risking his life coming to her this shows that Romeo is brave and would do anything for love.
