From the beginning, Romeo struggles to find true love and what love really is. As for Juliet, she also struggles on what love is, but also finding her own voice. And when finally finding true love they discover that they have fallen in love their own enemy.
The most distinct similarity between Romeo and Juliet is their undying love for one another. Both Romeo and Juliet have an intense love for each other that never weakens. Romeo and Juliet experience love at first sight when they meet each other at the Capulet’s party. Romeo expresses his immediate physical attraction towards Juliet when he remarks, “This holy shrine … my lips, two blushing, pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss” ( I.iv.93-95 ). Juliet excitedly replies “Good pilgrim you do wrong your hand too much, which mannerly devotion shows in this for saints have hands that pilgrims hands do touch…[and has] holy palmers kiss” (I.iv.97-100).
His conduct is annoying early in the play, when he is infatuated with Rosaline and again later, when he is banished. However, in his two-way love for Juliet, he is mature and sincere and thinks of Juliet before himself. Romeo becomes a strong-minded young man, battling against the odds, whose love for Juliet is not dulled by his desperate situation. At the end of the play, I sympathise with his with his despair and feel that it is a tragedy when he dies because of a feud in which he played no part.
The love of Romeo describes Juliet in terms of nature to express his admiration for her beau... ... middle of paper ... ...igure in the rest of the scene. Juliet is so overwhelmed by Romeo's presence that she cannot remember why she called him back. Romeo is sexually attracted to Juliet because on numerous occasions makes a lot of sexual utterances. ‘sleep dwell upon thine eyes, peace in thy breast. Would I were sleep and peace, so sweet to rest’.
Young Romeo loves the fact of being “in love” with anyone. After Romeo’s breakup with Rosaline he was confident that he would never love anyone again until he saw Juliet. When the couple spotted each other they slowly found themselves in a corner by there selves. Before the two even get a chance to know each other Romeo makes the first move "'O, then dear saint, let lips do what hands do! (Shakespeare 1.4.1016).’" However Juliet hesitates towards Romeo’s gestures because she doesn’t know who Romeo is.
Mercutio seems to hate love; to speak out against love. Throughout the play, Romeo's feelings for Juliet are based on an immature concept of love. Romeo and Juliet believe that the love they have is a deep, lasting, and true love. However, Romeo's actions speak otherwise through Rosaline, Mercutio, and Juliet. Shakespeare bases the book on how two people fall in love and are meant to be together but really is a tale of misguided, immature youth who fall victim to their own childishness.
“Ay me! Sad hours seem long” (Pg 22). This is a quote of Romeo’s distress of being away from Rosaline. He is so passionate about his love for Rosaline that the thought of being away from her makes him unhappy. Throughout this scene Romeo talks of her beauty “she is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair” (Pg25).
This quote demonstrates how deeply Romeo is possessed by Juliet, showing their love at first sight. Not knowing that Romeo and Juliet are from feuding families, they fall in love at first sight. The love between Romeo and Juliet continues, despite the bitterness between the two families. “Love give me strength, and strength shall help afford” (1V.1.125) This quote shows how Shakespeare handled an emotion, then translating it into something that gave Juliet strength to continue the Friar 's plan to be with Romeo. The love between Romeo and Juliet makes them forget about their commitments to the world and everyone around them, they both get consumed in a self centered world of
“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.
