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.
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
The unarguable theme in Shakespeare’s “A midsummer night’s dream” is love. Here the playwright explores how people fall in love and that the pursuit of love can make people irrational and foolish. By using the cliché that “the course of true love never did run smooth” Shakespeare suggests that love is “really an obstacle course with the capacity to turn us all into madmen.” (Shmoop Editorial Team, 2008). Furthermore the love represented in this play is far from true and by placing his characters in the fairy realm Shakespeare suggests that love is simply an illusion. The idea of difficult love is very often explored through the motif of” love out of balance”.
(Shakespeare, I.v.138-141) In this quotation, Juliet explains how her only love has risen from her only hate, because Romeo is a Montague. She continues to say that love is a monster for making her fall in love with her only enemy. By saying this, it is clear that love is not under the control of the mind, but is uncontrollable and predetermined by fate. As cruel as fate was making two people from feuding families fall in love, fate also gives Juliet a second admirer named Paris. Paris asks for Juliet’s hand, and eventually her father accepts, not knowing that Juliet ... ... middle of paper ... .... Romeo missing Rosaline, and bumping into a Capulet servant, who invites them to the Capulet party which Rosaline was attending, is a coincidence which leads to Romeo and Juliet meeting and falling in love.
Romeo and Juliet: The Play" Accidentally, incidentally, unintentionally, intentionally; no one ever really knows, but we are for certain one thing: “the heart isits own fate.” For Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, two star-crossed lovers in Shakespeare’s masterpiece play ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ this holds especially true. Romeo and Juliet’s “misadventure piteous overthrow” is fueled by their love for each other and their determination to be together, no matter what. Romeo and Juliet’s love with stands the hate surrounding them. Thus, fate is undoubtedly the most responsible influence for the two young lovers’ heartbreaking tragedy. A letter, never meant to even graze the hand of a Montague, was indeed read by a Montague.
Juliet’s love for Romeo largely dictates her brash decisions and speech. If Romeo did not enter Juliet’s life, she would never have known the hurt and heartbreak she experiences throughout the tragedy. Ultimately, Romeo and Juliet become embodiments of impulsiveness. Through their rash words and actions in the tragedy “Romeo and Juliet”, Shakespeare sets forth that both are too hasty in their decisions, leading them into unfortunate events. As the plot unfolds, Romeo and Juliet’s futile love is torn apart by their family’s hate and animosity towards each other.
Instant attraction is a trademark of infatuation, not essentially love. Friar Lawrence makes a considerable argument that Romeo 's love for Juliet could be nothing more than pure fixation. Just days before, Romeo was crying over another woman, the unachievable Rosaline. Friar Lawrence realizes that Romeo could fall in love with any beautiful girl he sees. In fact, Romeo does just that; he doesn’t follow his heart, he follows his eyes.
The Disasters of Love Love: the most splendid, indescribable, intense euphoric feeling for someone or thing. Young love can cause one to act and think irrationally; as if love had a magical power over ones body and mind. In William Shakespeare’s tragic playwright, Romeo and Juliet, two lovers cross paths set out for them by fate; Although all odds are against them because of a bitter, ongoing family feud, Romeo and Juliet recklessly go against their parent’s will and risk it all for love. Love often results in poor decision-making. Throughout the story, Romeo and Juliet conduct themselves in such a manner that is considered reckless.
Due to an ancient grudge, the tale of the downfall of Romeo and Juliet showcases themes of love persisting through all, including death. The two portray an equal lust for each other’s love, yet approach the situation differently. This reflects the contrast between their immature or realistic actions. In the balcony scene in Act II scene ii, Romeo is shown to be impulsive and impractical, whereas Juliet is more reasonable and mature. This is revealed in their attitudes toward love, their current situation, and the language they use.
Shakespeare notes that the youth’s judgement is clouded by their immaturity. Romeo is hopelessly devoted to Rosaline, and then conversely shifts his adoration to Juliet. “That beauty for which love groaned and would die, with now tender Juliet matched is now not beautiful. Now Romeo is beloved and loves again.” The alluding significance is that Romeo is in love with the idea of love. “Did my heart love till now?
