Yet, later that night, when Romeo and Juliet meet, he suddenly forgets about Rosaline, and he states “Forswear it, sight,/For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (I. IV.59-60). By this, not only does Romeo contradict himself, he also validates the fact that their love is based on external beauty. Although, it is destiny for these lovers to be together, they must not rush into complicated things such as love. At some point, even Juliet thinks their love “…is too rash, too unadvised, too sudd... ... middle of paper ... ...y was to liberate Juliet from her forced marriage and into the arms of Romeo. Apparently Juliet is so miserable that,“If all else fail, [she her]self have power to die” (III.V.242).
Romeo, driven with a mixture of grief and anger kills Tybalt. Shell-shocked with what he has done, he flees to Mantua, avoiding death. Meanwhile, Juliet unwillingly becomes betrothed to a respectable man named County Paris. Though Juliet does not wish to marry Paris, her father, Lord Capulet, threatens her and calls her ungrateful. Troubled, Juliet runs to Friar Lawrence for a solution to get out of the arranged marriage.
Romeo, only wanting to see a girl he loves, inadvertently causes Tybalt to despise him. In addition to strengthening the feud between the two houses, Romeo also meets Juliet during this party and they fall in love, but after being separated by the nurse, they each realize that their love is impossible due to their families’ dispute. Upon realizing that Romeo is a Montague, Juliet exclaims, “My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late!”(I, v, 151-152). Juliet immediately recognizes the conflict that Romeo has caused... ... middle of paper ... ...lips and in [her] cheeks”(V.iii.94-95).
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.
They go to the party and accident number two happens, Romeo sees Juliet and asks a servingman her name, unfortunately' 'I know not, sir." Was the Servingman's reply. If the servingman had known she was a Capulet, Romeo would never have gone near her! Unluckily for him, he didn't know till a bit too late that she was a Capulet! My final conclusion is that Shakespeare added 'accidents' to twist the story even more and he tried to show us that Fate, free will and accidents are very hard to separate.
If Rosaline was not chaste, he would have no reason to go to the party and look at the other girls because he would have been so deep in love. Unfortunately this did not happen and Romeo fell head over heels in love with Juliet because she happened to b... ... middle of paper ... ...ers may try to change their fate, but the story is truly written in the stars. Romeo and Juliet are presented with obstacles that they need to overcome. At the time, these may seem minor and unimportant to the plot, but the ultimately add up and result in the death of the two young lovers. Although this seems desolate, it also completes the fate of the two feuding families, as they stop fighting.
Juliet is so upset she tells her parents that she refuses to marry Paris. Also that she loves Romeo and not Paris. This leads to her and the Friar their secret plan that fails; that leads to Romeo and Juliets deaths. In Romeo and Juliet, coincidental events, that lead to Romeo and Juliets deaths can be observed through Mercutio and Tybalt just happen to cross paths on a street in Verona, Friar Laurence helping Juliet, and Juliets parents picking who Juliet should marry. The first aim pointing towards coincidental events that lead to Romeo and Juliets death is Mercutio and Tybalt crossing paths on a Verona street, and dueling.
Romeo was so depressed about his unrequited love for Rosaline when it just so happens, he goes to a masquerade party. There, he falls for Juliet, the daughter of Lord Capulet, and forgot about Rosaline. When they're finally torn apart, that's when both Romeo and Juliet realize they are from enemy families. Their love, of course, brings down their immediate marriage and Friar Lawrence agrees in hope to stop the feuding families. Unfortunately, Tybalt and Mercutio are killed and Romeo gets banished leaving Juliet without a husband or a cousin.
The Prince exiles Romeo from Verona for the killing. He also adds that if Romeo returns, "that hour is his last". Lord Capulet, misinterpreting Juliet's grief, agrees to marry her to Count Paris and threatens to disown her when she refuses to become Paris's "joyful bride". When she then pleads for the marriage to be delayed, her mother rejects her. Romeo secretly spends the night in Juliet's chamber, where they consummate their marriage.
