Romeo’s feelings for Juliet are so strong that he poisons himself when he thinks that she is dead, and the feelings are returned by Juliet, shown by her decision to take a dagger to her heart when she sees that Romeo has poisoned himself. Romeo and Juliet’s relationship is one of youthful, passionate love. They are “soul mates”. Their interdependence on each other emotionally allows Shakespeare to develop this plot. Shakespeare uses this relationship between Romeo and Juliet to portray his beliefs about love.
Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die.” (Act V Scene III Line 119-120). When Juliet awakes she finds Romeo dead beneath her and then she too decides to take her own life so that she will again be reunited with Romeo. Fate plays a role in both their deaths because if Romeo would have waited just a minute longer to drink the poison, he would have found that Juliet was still alive. Ultimately, it was fate that leads to the death of both Romeo and Juliet.
Love is important because it is a universal issue that everyone relates to. Shakespeare cooperates unrequited love, false love, and ill-fated love into Act I to connect different types of audiences. These forms of love create a major theme about romantic love. One of the forms of love Shakespeare indicates is unrequited love. Romeo has fallen deep in love with Rosaline, but he is, “out of her favor where [he] is in love”(Shakespeare.I.i.173).
The two lovers in Shakespeare’s arguably most popular work, Romeo and Juliet, express two different types of love, and their personality is shown in the way that they love. The play, written by William Shakespeare in the 1590’s, is a tragedy born out of an ancient comedy of youth. However, Shakespeare’s diction impacts the mood of the piece, and empathy is evoked from the reader. As stated in the prologue, Romeo and Juliet is a tale of two star-crossed lovers who toss aside the bad blood between their families, fall in love, and marry. After a twist of fate, Romeo is banished and Juliet is engaged to another man by her father.
Sometimes when people are in love they tend to do things that they could not imagine. Their mind is so caught up on the person that they forget everything and focus on them. The love takes over their mind and they do the unthinkable. In Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare shows love by introducing us to Romeo and Juliet who are star-crossed lovers. In the play, Shakespeare has messages, but one message that stands out is: Love is a crazy thing that can control ones mind and makes a person do things without thinking twice.
William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet The name Romeo, in popular culture, has become synonymous with "lover". Romeo Montague, in William Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' does indeed experience a love of such purity and passion which drives him to death, when he believes the object of his love, Juliet Capulet, has died. Emotions and changes are conveyed in Romeo's use of language and his gestured. It is the scenes in which Romeo and Juliet are together that I shall study in the following essay to show Romeo's changes and how Shakespeare's language is used to show this. At the beginning of the play, Romeo pines for Rosaline, proclaiming her to be the paragon of all women and despairing at her indifference towards him.
Shakespeare’s View on Love Shakespeare’s plays are very drastic with how he ties love into them. Shakespeare always adds comedy or tragedy to any romance that might be taking place. For example in Twelfth Night, As You like It and Romeo and Juliet there is romance but he also puts comedy in there so love is not that easy. In the play Othello he makes it into a tragedy which makes the love even harder to take place. 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.
It is the tension between the desire and his reticence that shows us how much he truly loves Juliet. All the presentations of love in Romeo and Juliet have led to one inevitable Love, the love that changes a person's soul this is the love that Romeo and Juliet hold for one another, as they are willing to kill themselves to love freely. The prince says Love is what kills Romeo and Juliet, as 'The sun for sorrow will not show its head.' As Juliet is dead, love is dead. Romeo and Juliet illustrate their compassion and true Love for one another by paying the greatest price for their love death.
Friar Laurence astutely states, “Thy love did read by rote, that could not spell./ But come, young waverer”(II iii 88-89), and he perhaps comes closest to the reality of the lovebirds’ affinity for each other: Romeo is a flighty young man falling in love with whoever pays him attention, and Juliet is an isolated, sheltered girl desperate for a change. Shakespeare uses the chorus to reinforce that Romeo and Juliet lust for one-another, rather than truly love their fiancee. The chorus states, “Now old desire doth in his deathbed lie,/And young affection gapes to be his heir…/ Now Romeo is beloved and loves again,/Alike bewitchèd by the charm of looks”(II prologue 1-6). This is vividly contrasted by the actual love that is apparent between Lord and Lady Montague, and even more acutely towards their son, as evidenced by their worry for him following the brawl in Act I, scene i, and their grief following his banishment, culminating in Lady Montague grieving herself to death. Romeo and Juliet’s passionate lust, rather than love, and obsession are more than simply strong emotions-they lead to dangerous
Moreover, Juliet character is well-defined as individualist when she tells Romeo “you kiss by the book.” As much when Romeo meets Juliet he forgets all about Rosaline the woman he thought he loved. Romeo’s character develops maturity and displayed openly with his poetry writing. Another genre that classify this film is the love and murder formula. For example, Mercutio’s is killed by Tybalt and Romeo kills Tybalt. Because Mercutio’s is viewed as a brother to Romeo his act of revenge is understood by the
