(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 ... ....

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.

Nurse responds for Juliet with something that Lady Capulet wanted to hear. Scene 4 Act 1:Romeo, Benvolio, Mercutio, and other members of the Montague house go to the Capulet feast. They are all wearing masks to hide their identity. They talk it over and decide to stay for one dance. Because Romeo is still in love with Rosaline, Mercutio teases him about being a hopeless lover.
Therefore, it is indicative that fate has to lead to Romeo’s true love and life , Juliet being forbidden from him. Furthermore, when Juliet hears the Nurse reveal that Romeo is a Montague, she says, “My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me, That I must love a loathed enemy.” Juliet falls in with Romeo not knowing that her star crossed lover Romeo is a Montague. Her unconditional love for Romeo is scarred by the knowledge that their love is prohibited.
In Act 2 Scene 3 Romeo turns to Friar Lawrence for advice and the Friar agrees to marry them stating, “For this alliance may so happy prove / to turn your households’ rancor to pure love.” The Friar is saying that he will agree to marry them with the hopes of ending the Capulet/Montague feud.

Shortly after they first met Juliet said, “My only love sprung from my only hate.” [Act I sc.5 ll 145]. Juliet is saying that her love (Romeo) has come from her hate (the Montague family). Seeing as how she had just met Romeo it is very premature to call him her ‘only love’. Shortly after meeting Juliet and learning that she was a Capulet, Romeo said, “My life is my foe’s debt” [Act I sc5 ll125]. Despite knowing that they were from feuding families, Romeo and Juliet decided to pursue their love.
Also, ‘freak’ accidents make the deaths more likely because of Juliet waking up straight after when Romeo dies. Love itself may have been the ‘vital’ key to all this because in the end the two will be drawn together in a sad, yet rather emotional ending to Shakespeare’s play. We can see that ‘Romeo and Juliet’ reflected some of the important events in Shakespeare’s own time because it was the age of Elizabeth I and James I, an age of a religious and political faction and of growing nationalism. Elizabeth’s father, Henry VIII disconnected the English Church from the Roman Catholic Church in protest because the P... ... middle of paper ... ... deaths are caused by ‘love’ and they died because they love each other and willing to give up including their own lives.

Despite their resolute attempts to challenge their destiny, the principle of fate propels the lovers still succumb to the inexorable powers of fate. In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare demonstrates that the principle of fate propels the lovers together, tears them apart through a bitter demise, yet, ensures peace in Verona and between the families for
The fall of Romeo and Juliet is a culmination of many factors. A controlling father, an ongoing feud and a gullible friar all contribute to this catastrophe, but, for the most part, it was Romeo and Juliet themselves that lent a hand to their own doom. The two lovers were fated to meet and die, but this never could've happened without their help. Had they been patient and rational, perhaps the situation would've worked itself out, but what can one expect from a couple of thirteen year olds who insist that they are in love? The first instance of Romeo's immaturity occurs when he first encounters the lovely Juliet.
