(Shakespeare 1.4.1016).’" However Juliet hesitates towards Romeo’s gestures because she doesn’t know who Romeo is. Then, Romeo continues with his romantic statements and the two kiss. Although Romeo is romantic, he is also very impulsive. After meeting Juliet Romeo was in love after just breaking up with Rosaline. When Romeo talks to Friar Laurence he explains “‘Then plainly know my heart’s dear love is set On the fair daughter of rich Capulet’ As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, And all combined, save what thou must combine By holy marriage.
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.
Themes of Love and Hate in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet, one of the most famous plays of all time, is so because of the combination of doomed love and troubled hate that plights the destiny of the two "star-crosse'd lovers". Before Act 1 Scene 5, love has already been displayed in many forms. Romeo shows an almost courtly love for Rosaline where he is to pursue her until he can win her. In contrast to this the nurse and the servants give a much more informal, bawdy presentation of love, perhaps this is because it is the only type of love they have the experienced. However, more likely it is used to emphasise the class differences that existed at the time.
In Shakespeare's story, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare perceives love with the personalities and actions of the characters, Romeo and Juliet. Both Romeo and Juliet are characterized as immature and irrational due to their "love." In addition, both characters fail to realize the reality of life and go towards the path of adolescence. Even though Romeo and Juliet are doomed at the end of the journey of "love," their demise was caused by their rash and silly decisions because their belief of everlasting love blinds them from reality and shapes their lives into an unstoppable time bomb. Romeo and Juliet choose their own actions through their judgments, which were caused by their belief of everlasting love.
Fate plays a cruel role in making both Romeo and Juliet love the only person that they aren’t allowed to; each other. When Juliet finds out that Romeo is a Montague, an enemy of the Capulet family which she belongs to, she says, My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me, That I must love a loathed enemy. (Shakespeare, I.v.138-141) In this quotation, Juliet explains how her only love has risen from her only hate, because Romeo is a Montague.
It's almost ironic how Shakespeare's play is often thought of as a story of true love, and not as a tale of two immature youth who believe they hold more than simply infatuation. Shakespeare shows that the love shared by Romeo and Juliet is nothing more than naïve attraction. For instance, (cut here?) Romeo is depressed about being “out of love” meaning the attraction he feels is not mutual, but he instantly forgets about his lovesickness, and the one he was in love with, when he locks eyes with another girl. This means that he never actually had true love to begin with as he first thought.
The Disasters of Love Love: the most splendid, indescribable, intense euphoric feeling for someone or thing. Young love can cause one to act and think irrationally; as if love had a magical power over ones body and mind. In William Shakespeare’s tragic playwright, Romeo and Juliet, two lovers cross paths set out for them by fate; Although all odds are against them because of a bitter, ongoing family feud, Romeo and Juliet recklessly go against their parent’s will and risk it all for love. Love often results in poor decision-making. Throughout the story, Romeo and Juliet conduct themselves in such a manner that is considered reckless.
Many of Shakespeare's plays show a strong theme of love. Romeo and Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing deal primarily with the issue of true and false love. Romeo and Juliet, tragic play, is about two lovers who struggle, sacrifice, and defy their families and society for the sake of love that changes them completely. Although the end of Romeo and Juliet's story is death both of the lovers, their love turns to be immortal. Much Ado About Nothing, comedy play, is about two lovers who their relationship starts as child like and develops to be true love that motives the lovers to sacrifice in order to keep their love.
Once you get to know and accept someone for who they really are, that is true love. Romeo and Juliet fell in “love” without even knowing each other; could you really say it was actual love? Shakespeare wrote, “Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight, I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (1: 5: 51-52). Romeo believes that Juliet is the first person he has ever loved before, but he only thinks he loves her because she is so pleasing to his eyes.
His verification of love for Rosaline is based on her beauty. But, when Romeo finds someone more stunning than her, it is easy for him to let go of his previous feelings. We will never know if he would be capable of getting rid of his feelings for Juliet in the same fashion. When Romeo and Juliet met at the ball, they were instantly attracted to each other. Instant attraction is a trademark of infatuation, not essentially love.
