Romeo feels that he has let Juliet down dearly so that is why he decides he shall kill himself by her side. The love in this is that he has decided to kill himself in respect for the love that he has for Juliet, and the hate is of himself for fleeing. Romeo will die still loving Juliet. In conclusion I have decided that throughout the play Romeo and Juliet loves triumphs. The love between Romeo and Juliet began many feuds and fights but it was all for a good reason.
Again hatred was demonstrated by Lady Capulet when she says “We will have vengeance to one in Mantua, shall give him such an unaccustomed dram that he shall soon keep Tybalt company,” (III,v, 98) referring to Romeo. All this hatred led to Romeo and Juliet’s death. Also the Prince said, “And I, for winking at your discords too have lost a brace of kinsmen. All are punished,” (V, iii, 318) saying all are punished for everyone lost a family member. Love at first site, which is how Romeo and Juliet got together.
Love is a very powerful force which some believe has the capability to overpower hate. Within the play, Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare displays various events in which the characters convey the message that love can conquer all. The characters in this play continue to forgive the ones they love, even under harsh circumstances. Additionally, Shakespeare effectively demonstrates how Romeo and Juliet’s love for one another overpowers significant emotional scenes within the play, including the feuding between their two families. Furthermore, by the end of the play the reader sees how love defeats the shock of death and how Romeo and Juliet’s love ends the ancient feud between the Capulets and Montagues.
What the Prince is saying is that, see what dreadful punishment has been laid upon your hatred. Heaven finds a reason to kill your joys with their love!" There are many forces in the tragic play of Romeo and Juliet that are keeping the two young, passionate lovers apart, all emanating from one main reason. In this essay I will discuss these as well as how love, in the end, may have been the cause that led to the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Their strong attraction to each other, which some call fate, determines where their forbidden love will take them.
All scenes in the tragedy suggest the hatred between the Montagues and Capulets to be the obstacle which disturbs the possibility of an orderly turn of events. Specifically, the assumption is eminent in the prologue where the chorus mentions the existence of the feud. The introduction discusses, “From ancient grudge break to new mutiny/..From forth the fatal loins of these two foes/A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life”(I.Prologue.3, 5-6). Instantly, Shakespeare acknowledges the long-standing grudge between the two families. Thereafter, he declares two unlucky children of these enemy families become lovers and commit suicide as an ultimate product of this hostility.
Violence and death permeates Romeo and Juliet, and it is always linked to passion, whether that passion is love or hate. Hate is portrayed as an emotion which can overwhelm a person equally as powerfully as love can. The power of hate is exposed when Tybalt states ‘Peace / I hate the word like I hate hell, all Montagues and thee.’ (1.1.60-61). The passionate love between Romeo and Juliet is linked from the moment of its inception with death – with Tybalt detecting that Romeo has crashed the feast, determined to kill him, just as Romeo catches sight of Juliet and instantly falls in love with her. Furthermore, the notion of suicide is discussed many times throughout the play, as a reaction against those who oppose the love between Romeo and Juliet.
(Prologue, 1-6) Line 3 is stating that a longstanding grudge (in this play, between the Capulets and the Montagues) will erupt into a violent feud. Lines 4-6 are stating that the blood of citizens will soil the hands of fellow citizens, there will be bloodshed in the streets, and it will lead to the deaths of two star-crossed lovers (aka Romeo and Juliet). At the very end of the story, after the lovers’ deaths, Prince Escalus says this: “Where be these enemies? Capulet, Montague! / See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate, That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love” (5, 3 281-283).
Romeo’s feelings for Juliet are so strong that he poisons himself when he thinks that she is dead, and the feelings are returned by Juliet, shown by her decision to take a dagger to her heart when she sees that Romeo has poisoned himself. Romeo and Juliet’s relationship is one of youthful, passionate love. They are “soul mates”. Their interdependence on each other emotionally allows Shakespeare to develop this plot. Shakespeare uses this relationship between Romeo and Juliet to portray his beliefs about love.
Urban Dictionary defines hate as “to dislike intensely or passionately”. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, hate is the most responsible for the events that take place during the play. The hatred between the Capulets and the Montagues causes Romeo’s and Juliet’s death which proves that hate is a more powerful emotion than love. The hatred between the two families, the Montagues and the Capulets make Romeo and Juliet love each other so much that they kill themselves. Juliet meets Romeo at the Capulet ball and falls in love with him.
