Examples of love in Romeo and Juliet

Uploaded by Admin on Feb 04, 2000

Love has existed in many forms throughout time. There is no better example than in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. In this tzale, when love is most apparent, the most crucial events occur to develop this "tragedy." The evident forms of love are love for friends, "love" for enemies, and love between lovers. First, love for friends was, and is, a necessity for the characters. Romeo had been in love with a girl who didn't feel love the same way that he did. Consequently, Romeo was distraught. He thought no woman could be as fare as Rosaline. Romeo's friend, Benvolio, thought differently. Benvolio encouraged Romeo to go to the Capulet's feast and accurately predicted that Romeo would find other girls more attractive than Rosaline.

The next form of love was for enemies. The hatred between the houses of Capulet and Montague was known throughout the town of Verona. Hatred had reached the lowest servants from each of the families. Due to the hate, the relationship of Romeo and Juliet would never have been public. The feuding families would have condemned the relationship, something the two lovers could not accept. In Act 1, scene 2, the fact that Romeo and his friends were uninvited, but still attended the Capulet's party, added to Tybalt's anger. Tybalt was the personification of hatred between the Capulet and Montague families. Tybalt and Mercutio were always ready for a fight. The prince was sick of the fighting and said death would come to anyone from either house if they were caught fighting in...
