Nurse returns saying, “His name is Romeo, and a Montague, / The only son of your great enemy” (I v 36-37). They instantly become desperate to see each other all the time, ignoring the fact that their families are feuding. Juliet likes the proverbial forbidden fruit, saying, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose / By any other name would smell as sweet; So Romeo would, were he not Romeo called / Retain that dear perfection which he owes / Without that... ... middle of paper ... ...ay for years, believing it was a play about love, but the way Shakespeare wrote the play it is far from a love story. As Romeo moved from Rosaline to Juliet, for the simple fact that he believed Juliet is more beautiful than Rosaline, gives the perfect example that the play is based on desperation.
Juliet's attitude and personality changes right after she meets sweet, charming Romeo. During the time she meets Romeo, her adulthood is force into her life, though she is deeply in love with Romeo. Juliet spots the flaws in Romeo, where he likes to romanticize things and romance girls with his words. At the party that Capulet... ... middle of paper ... ...d, she becomes heartbroken and decides to take her own life as well. Throughout the play of Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is known as the obedient, young, immature girl to the determined, mature, adult.
This vividly shows how fast Romeo can fall in love, which shows immaturity. This also shows that he’s very shallow because for him love is based on physical beauty as he only saw Juliet for the first time. Another example of Romeo’s immaturity includes when the prince was merciful and banished Romeo from Verona for killing Tybalt and Romeo whished the prince had sentenced death for him. Also it shows that Romeo did not ... ... middle of paper ... ...” (Shakespeare 5.3.174-175). The reader will see that Juliet shows innocence as she was in a tough position and wanted to die with her Romeo whom she loved.
v., lines 137-138, she tells Juliet who Romeo is. It causes Juliet to get very upset: “My only love, sprung from my only hate. '; (I.V.139), but the Nurse doesn’t think about this. She doesn’t see the trouble that has started. After the nurse realizes that Juliet and Romeo love each other, she doesn’t stop it; instead, she agrees to carry the message to Romeo, although she knows Romeo is a Montague.
When Romeo shouts “Is it even so? Then I defy you stars!” (Act 5, Scene 1) he is referring to fate and saying that he is in opposition to the destiny of him and Juliet’s relationship. The love between Romeo and Juliet is young, irrational and passionate. Lustful love, which is basically love for sexual pleasure is brought up within the play but it does not define the love between Romeo and Juliet. The love shared between Romeo and Juliet is youthful, which is one of the many reasons why their love grows intense very quickly.
Juliet excitedly replies “Good pilgrim you do wrong your hand too much, which mannerly devotion shows in this for saints have hands that pilgrims hands do touch…[and has] holy palmers kiss” (I.iv.97-100). Romeo and Juliet have an overwhelming strength in their desire for one another when they declare their love in the balcony scene. Romeo proclaims his desire for Juliet when he says, “It is my lady, o it is my love” (II.i.10). Juliet’s yearn for Romeo is revealed when she says “In truth fair Montague I am too fond” (II.ii.98). Romeo and Juliet agree on concealing their romantic love with a rash marriage.
Young Romeo loves the fact of being “in love” with anyone. After Romeo’s breakup with Rosaline he was confident that he would never love anyone again until he saw Juliet. When the couple spotted each other they slowly found themselves in a corner by there selves. Before the two even get a chance to know each other Romeo makes the first move "'O, then dear saint, let lips do what hands do! (Shakespeare 1.4.1016).’" However Juliet hesitates towards Romeo’s gestures because she doesn’t know who Romeo is.
His conduct is annoying early in the play, when he is infatuated with Rosaline and again later, when he is banished. However, in his two-way love for Juliet, he is mature and sincere and thinks of Juliet before himself. Romeo becomes a strong-minded young man, battling against the odds, whose love for Juliet is not dulled by his desperate situation. At the end of the play, I sympathise with his with his despair and feel that it is a tragedy when he dies because of a feud in which he played no part.
This lustful idea of romance is only emphasised when he describes Rosaline as "An open-arse and thou a poperin pear! "Rosaline, Romeo’s initial unrequited love seemed irrelevant once Romeo had set his eyes upon Juliet. This may portray a side of Romeo, which shows that as easily as he falls ‘in’ love, he can fall ‘out’ of love. However, Romeo and Juliet’s love was pure and ideal, and because of their forbidden love, it leads them to their graves. Upon seeing Juliet all alone, talking in soliloquy, Romeo proclaims, "It is the east, and Juliet is the Sun," this metaphor enhances Juliet’s beauty as it is exaggerated and pronounced as the beauty of the sun.
Techniques and Devices Shakespeare Uses to Show the Power and Beauty of the Love Between Romeo and Juliet In this essay I will be exploring the different language devises that Shakespeare uses to show the powerful bond between Romeo and Juliet. The actual play is about two teenage people that fall in love at first sight, but their families have an "ancient grudge" which will doom the love and relationship between Romeo and Juliet. One of the techniques that Shakespeare uses to express the real love Romeo has for Juliet but with him also imagining he is in love with Rosaline, he uses good exaggerated language. The play begins with an opening with Romeo brooding as he is in love with a girl called Rosaline. On lines 162 - 172 he uses opposites "â€¦O heavy lightness", this is a figure of speech known as oxymoron.
