If their parents ever found out, how would it end? Would there be more rivalry, or bring love between the two families? Romeo changes over the course of the play, at first feeling dark and depressed, then madly in love and ending with him thinking Juliet was dead and mourning over his loss of her. At the beginning of the play Romeo is dark and depressed because he falls in love with a girl named Rosaline who does not have the same feelings for him. Romeo has built up his feelings and is crazy for Rosaline who in contrast could care less about anything to do with Romeo.
In Act 5 Scene 3, when the Capulets and Montagues find their children lying dead next to each other, the Friar explains, “Romeo, there dead, was husband to Juliet, and she, there dead, that was Romeo’s faithful wife.” (Line 240 and 241). Romeo and Juliet both committed suicide because of their love. They loved each other so immensely they couldn’t live without each other. Today people don’t usually go to the extent of taking their own lives, they would just mourn their spouse 's death. Romeo and Juliet’s love was so rebellious that they ended up taking their own lives to meet each other in
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is a play suffused with differences. Differences like Youth’s ideas compared with the elderly, and bloodshed with the cessation of war. The two lovers in this play had seemingly no way to control the differences that overpowered them. In the end, the ultimate resolve was death. The tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet were because of three major differences; They belonged to feuding families, they were very far apart, and their parents had very different plans for them.
Romeo crashes the party only because he wants to see Rosaline, a young lady he simply lusts over. But at first sight of Juliet, Romeo falls in love. Juliet is also hooked. They speak, and kiss. As the party ends, Romeo and Juliet discover that they belong to rival families and are both distraught.
Juliet and Paris have an engagement party and Romeo and his friends decide to crash, as Romeo wants to see Rosaline and they want to irritate the Capulets. However, at the party, Romeo and Juliet catch each other’s eyes and instantly fall madly in love, unaware of the fact that they are from conflicting families. This causes complications, as they would be forbidden to be together if their families discovered their relationship, so they resort to keeping their romance a secret, which leads to a bitter tragedy. In this essay I will be exploring the themes of conflict and violence in act 1 scene 1, act 3 scene 1, and act 3 scene 5. In act 1 scene 1, a fight occurs between the Montagues and the Capulets, in which the prince has to intervene.
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Four hundred years ago, William Shakespeare wrote The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, a popular play that continues to capture the imagination and emotions of people around the world. The drama portrays the passionate, violent and often desperate lives of the youth of Verona. The story is about two families who have been fighting for years, the Capulets Juliet’s family and the Montugues Romeo’s family. The play opens with a fight scene between the servants of both families. This fight is broken up when the Prince Escalus who is the ruler of Verona tells them if there is any more fighting between the families, the culprits will be put to death.
In Romeo and Juliet, there are limited warning signs because suicide is the last straw for them both. But, looking into the story more in depth, you see that both Romeo and Juliet’s families are very unsupportive of them being in love. A good example of this would be Juliet’s soliloquy (act 2, scene 2). In this soliloquy, Juliet speaks of how she wishes Romeo were not a Montague so she would be able to be in love with him. Due to this family feud, the two families are so unsupportive that they don't even have the guts to come forward to their families, before committing suicide, to tell them they are married and in love.
The only people that know about their love were the Nurse and Friar Lawrence. The nurse, who sided with Romeo and Juliet being together in the beginning, quickly changed her mind and told Juliet that she go ... ... middle of paper ... ... each other. Second they know they would have tried to break the two up, which would have made them want to kill themselves, because they two constantly talked about dying for their love. Lastly the hatred between both families would have driven them apart because they would have gotten forbidden to see each other. As soon as the families found out about them, they realized there fighting was stupid and caused the death of their children.
This eventually leads them to forgiving the rival family for all the hateful acts that have occurred against one another. This is not the only forgiveness that is experienced in this play. Tybalt is a Montague with a fiery attitude. After catching Romeo at a party he was not supposed to be at, Tybalt had it out for Romeo. Just after Romeo and Juliet’s wedding, Tybalt comes looking for him wanting to fight.
