They flirt with each other and Juliet's immediate attraction to Romeo is clearly shown. It is a light hearted conversation, with both Romeo and Juliet obviously ve... ... middle of paper ... ... the only way they can be together is if he kills himself. He does not die out of anger, or rage at the unfairness of the situation, but because he loves Juliet and is not willing to live his life without her. In conclusion, Romeo is a very emotional and rash character, but he does show maturity in his love for Juliet. His conduct is annoying early in the play, when he is infatuated with Rosaline and again later, when he is banished.
Romeo and Juliet, the two cross lovers, who brought raging commotion to their families, finally saved the feud peacefully by their own death. Romeo and Juliet, lovers by fate, change importantly due to love's grievousness; with their families at war both decided to keep their love secretly for the sake of rivalry, but however, their love for one another causes a tragic incident at the end of the book. The two “star-crossed” lovers change significantly throughout the book from young and slow to full common sense and maturity. Juliet, a bracing protagonist in Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, has an effective determination to be with the one she loves no matter the damage it would cause. At the beginning of the story Juliet is this young and obedient girl.
(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.
The theme of love is highlighted effectively in Romeo and Juliet. At the play's beginning, Romeo describes his infatuation for Rosaline. His feelings are not returned and this means that he feels desolate: he shuts himself away from his friends and family. Shakespeare allows his audience to see that unrequited love can be painful. However when Romeo meets Juliet, all thoughts of Rosaline disappear.
Romeo has fallen deep in love with Rosaline, but he is, “out of her favor where [he] is in love”(Shakespeare.I.i.173). Unrequited love is love that is not returned or reciprocated. Romeo is madly in love with Rosaline who does not love him back. This unrequited love has given dread to Romeo, he feels like he cannot love anyone else again. As a hopeless romantic, Romeo loves the idea of love, but the love he is experiencing is pain through his heart.
On lines 162 - 172 he uses opposites "â€¦O heavy lightness", this is a figure of speech known as oxymoron. Romeo is feeling very miserable because he is in love with Rosaline, always thinking about her, "From love's weak childish blow she lives uncharmed." But this love is unrequited, Romeos best friends thinks the cure is too forget her but Romeo thinks it would be better and easier to forget to think, "O teach me how I should forget to think", we think that Romeo is in love with being in love. Benvolio tells Romeo that when he takes him to the party, Rosaline will appear like a crow but Romeo says that's not possible "â€¦the all seeing sun never saw the match since time begun", the way that Romeo is saying this, it might mean that the feelings are not coming from the heart but he is just in love with being in love. Then we look at the effectiveness of that language that Shakespeare uses to show Juliet before she meets Romeo.
Without knowing that their actions are controlled by the potion, the lovers are ironically convinced that they fall in love because of essential "reasons". A Midsummer Night’s Dream and its characters show the real meaning of true love and how the blindside of a real love makes people behave too unreasonably and foolishly. To portray how the state of love makes people act irrationally, Shakespeare uses satire, irony, and animal imagery in this play. First of all, Shakespeare’s use of satire illustrates that love makes people act illogical. In one scene, Helena, with full determination, asks Demetrius to love her.
Character Analysis of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Romeo Of the many tragic heroes of Shakespeare, Romeo continues to exercise a peculiar fascination over the minds of young men and women. He stands out as the emblem of youthful love, its disappointment, and its possibility for tragedy. Romeo is the only son of Lord Montague, the head of a reputed and rich family of Verona that is plagued by its long-standing feud with the Capulet family. In the first scenes, Romeo appears indifferent to his family's feud. His only concern is his love for Rosaline, a love, which is overwhelming, but artificial.
Romeo and Juliet choose their own actions through their judgments, which were caused by their belief of everlasting love. Due to their unsound and absurd attitudes, both characters are dazed by love in a puerile manner. The relationship they created was actually built on lust and desperation. Firstly, Romeo is the first character whom shows immature love in the story as a whole. Once Capulet’s party is over, Romeo’s attitude leads him to jump over the wall to Juliet’s house and exclaim to her,” And what love can do, that dares love attempt./Therefore thy kinsmen are no stop to me”(2.2.68-9).
As the child of the Montagues, Romeo, and Juliet of the Capulets, they are required to be mortal enemies, but instead fall in love at an unlikely time. Romeo and Juliet claim that they found true love, but I believe Romeo and Juliet’s perspective on love will differ from others who have experienced, seen, or felt this special feeling. Romeo’s insight on love is very immature and dramatic. “Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health.” (1.1.175). As Romeo speaks to Benvolio, he uses these oxymorons to show
