“Immature love says:’ I love you because I need you. ‘Mature love says’ I need you because I love you” (Fromm, Eric). Romeo and Juliet is a tragic love story written by William Shakespeare, the play is based on teenagers who fall in love with each other without thinking about the consequences that there love will have. In the play the reader will see Romeos immaturity and irrational decisions that lead to his death, also the reader sees Juliet’s immature decisions and her lack of growing up and being more mature. The outcome of the play was changed because of there irrational thinking.
In the play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare depicts the story of how Romeo and Juliet struggle to stay together despite the fact that they are from rival houses. He also demonstrates a common human error, rather than fate, lead to their demise. The characters’ lack of consideration for possible negative consequences of their good intentions not only caused the meeting of the two forbidden lovers and the failures of their plans, but also their death. Romeo’s decision to go to the Capulets’ party helps start this tragedy. When he was confronted by one of Capulet’s serving men and asked to read a party invitation, he sees his former love’s name, Rosaline, on it.
Fate in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet I believe that the characters in Romeo and Juliet have free will, in the drama. However, the audience learns from the chorus that whatever their intentions or decisions are, will turn out badly because of several flaws in different character’s personalities. - Romeo says that he will defy fate and will go to Juliet. - Juliet defies fate, instead of marrying Paris she pretends to be dead. - Romeo had a premonition not to go to the masked ball but his decision was to go any ways after Benvolio’s and Mercutio’s insistence.
Until the events in this scene make her change her mind. The audience knows from the prologue that the lovers' lives will be cut short due to their love for each other. Intensity is built up to the deaths from events such as the brawl at the beginning and the fact that the constant brawl between the two families will not affect the love between the two, showing complete isolation from others, it is inevitable that it will lead to trouble. In act 1 scene 5 great tension is mounted knowing that Romeo is not a welcomed member of the Capulets' party, but because doing so, he finds love at first sight. Before they arrive at the party, Romeo gives a speech relating to death, 'Some consequences yet hanging in the stars' meaning in-directly that death is nearby, creating tension.
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.
Romeo's Change Throughout the Play I feel that Romeo does not change very much in this play. He has many sides to his personality; he can be happy, sad and depressed but what really causes him to die is his impulsiveness; he does not think of the consequences of his actions and thinks that everything is down to fate/destiny. For example, at the beginning of the play, Romeo feels miserable because the woman he admires does not return her love. Romeo knows that the woman he desires, Rosaline, will not fall in love with him, yet he is certain that he will not love anybody else. In the beginning of the play, Romeo states to Benvolio; "â€¦Why then, O brawling love!
Then out of this hate comes a 'pair of star-crossed lovers' to 'take their lives.' This tragedy of Romeo and Juliet seems unstoppable right from the start. Throughout the play the audience watches that 'fearful passage of their death-mark'd love'. But who was responsible for the tragedy of the two lovers? Or was it just inevitable fate?
The audience wants to think he is sincere so that the tragedy at the end is meaningful. If the young lovers were not really in love the audience would not think much of anything that happens, but they were truly in love it would add to the sadness of the tragedy At first Juliet is skeptical of the whole arrangement. She says, "I have no joy of this contract tonight". This shows she is hesitant and is not as impulsive as Romeo is. Later on in the scene she changes her mind and starts to think along the same lines as Romeo.
‘Romeo and Juliet’ is a tragedy - in the traditional sense - that Romeo and Juliet (the main characters) die because of the fault of someone else. In this play, there are no evil characters, only hasty ones. There is no character going out of their way to cause trouble. They are only trying to do the right thing, unfortunately, it is only what they see as the right thing. For example, Benvolio decides that he will take Romeo to the Capulet party to help overcome being love-sick for Rosaline, to show him that there are other girls out there, but Romeo ...
He never really considered that not killing anyone will also get his revenge but instead Romeo receiving banishment from Verona as a result of his poor actions. This leads to Juliet’s feigned death. But also Romeo was unaware of that plan in the future for him was also the reason Juliet and him committed suicide. Another way he could have handled his situation was just telling Tybalt about Romeo and Juliet’s marriage which leads to a completely different path but could have a bigger result of the effect on his consequences. Shakespeare shows lots of empathy in his plays to let the audience know of their rash action but also the love they share.
