And when finally finding true love they discover that they have fallen in love their own enemy. They both realize that the idea of love can be amazing, but also a painful experience. Shakespeare demonstrates love versus evil and the forms love takes that is acknowledged as an universal issue that connects different types of audiences. Audiences are captured by relating on love and the emotions that are displayed. From Romeo and Rosaline’s unrequited love, Paris and Juliet’s false love, and Romeo and Juliet’s ill-fated love, create the forms of love that establishes love as a leading theme in Act I.
When Romeo shouts “Is it even so? Then I defy you stars!” (Act 5, Scene 1) he is referring to fate and saying that he is in opposition to the destiny of him and Juliet’s relationship. The love between Romeo and Juliet is young, irrational and passionate. Lustful love, which is basically love for sexual pleasure is brought up within the play but it does not define the love between Romeo and Juliet. The love shared between Romeo and Juliet is youthful, which is one of the many reasons why their love grows intense very quickly.
Analysis of the Balcony Scene in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Love is profound and unconditional. Love is devotional and overwhelming but as for Romeo and Juliet , they are not supposed to fall in love because they are sworn enemies. When Romeo and Juliet fall in love they are aware of the risks they are taking but the feeling of love is powerful and Romeo is a romantic dreamer, they are not afraid to fall deeply in love. The situation they find themselves in and the strength of their love gives this scene the immense romantic appeal and fame . The scene is full of commotion, dramatic tension and activity.
Shakespeare has always found a way to make love as complicated as he can which leads me to believe that he feels that you must work for love and it should not be handed to you. Love is already complicated, but when Shakespeare is involved he makes sure at least two things come around that can make it harder for those who are in love to actually stay in love. Twelfth Night is a romantic comedy which leads to romantic love being the main focus of the play. In this play, Shakespeare shows that love can cause pain. He does this by causing a love triangle which includes; • Viola likes Duke but • Duke likes Olivia and • Olivia like Cesario who is actually Viola disguised as her twin brother.
The love of Romeo and Juliet although idealized, is rooted in passionate sexuality. The Victorian idea of pure non-sexual love has not yet evolved. Both Samspon and Gregory create a sense of Bravado and refer to 'maidenheads' similar to Romeo's love for Rosaline as he holds a sexual love for her, which is quick and Impulsive. Shakespeare expresses love as an intense emotion, which is both happiness and sadness as Love is 'choking gall' 'smoke sighs' 'preserving Sweet' and 'madness'. We see that Romeos love for Rosaline is 'black and portentous' this is in sharp contrast with the fresh, spontaneous passion, which Juliet will inspire in Romeo.
Often, both characters portray a side that opposes the real meaning of romance. Many would argue that Shakespeare’s lines about love perpetuate its beauty; however, these structures are mainly abused by his own characters. Uttered by Romeo, “Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs,”—this line reveals how his perception of love changes when love is not granted to him. Therefore, it paves the way to the idea that love is often filled with complications and confusions. All in all, Romeo takes the easy way out in order to eliminate the memories of his past lover.
Some readers may sense bitterness behind the comedy, but will probably also recognize the truth behind Shakespeare's satire. Often, love leads us down blind alleys and makes us do things we regret later. The lovers within the scene, especially the men, are made to seem rather shallow. They change the objects of their affections, all the time swearing eternal love to one or the other. In this scene Shakespeare presents the idea that both false love and true love can prevail..
Shakespeare notes that the youth’s judgement is clouded by their immaturity. Romeo is hopelessly devoted to Rosaline, and then conversely shifts his adoration to Juliet. “That beauty for which love groaned and would die, with now tender Juliet matched is now not beautiful. Now Romeo is beloved and loves again.” The alluding significance is that Romeo is in love with the idea of love. “Did my heart love till now?
Shakespeare shows this type of love in a very interesting and confusing way as the characters were from the opposite side and so it made this type of love very unique and different. Shakespeare represents each type of love in a different way and by making each play distinctive and fascinating in its own way. My favourite type of love is unrequited love because I can link it to my life and also because I find it funny that you can like someone so much and not get it back. The message that Shakespeare is trying to give out is that all types of love has its miserable and joyful points and that love is never perfect. Shakespeare uses different story lines to make each type of love dramatic and amusing way.
Love is a powerful emotion, capable of turning reasonable people into fools. Out of love, ridiculous emotions arise, like jealousy and desperation. Love can shield us from the truth, narrowing a perspective to solely what the lover wants to see. Though beautiful and inspiring when requited, a love unreturned can be devastating and maddening. In his play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, William Shakespeare comically explores the flaws and suffering of lovers.
