Romeo and Juliet– theme love
The author, William Shakespeare, efficiently employs various events and characters in the play, Romeo and Juliet, to communicate that love dominates all. Through control of Act 2, Scene 2, also renowned as the ‘Terrace Scene’, Shakespeare successfully demonstrates how Romeo and Juliet’s love prevails over many things, in the play. Furthermore, Shakespeare portrays that/how the strength of Romeo’s love for his murdered good friend Mercutio, develops a desire for revenge in spite of potentially receiving death penalty; displaying that Romeo’s love for his pal dominates the worry of death.
Furthermore, the last scene likewise depicts how love accomplishments over the fear of death and how the Montague and Capulet moms and dads’ shared love for their kids, Romeo and Juliet, dismisses their ancient fight. Utilizing these events and characters, Shakespeare accentuates his main message that love conquers all. Shakespeare develops how Romeo and Juliet’s love for one another surmounts all, in the well-known ‘Terrace Scene’. Despite their parents being sworn opponents, Romeo privately goes to the Capulet estate to see his precious Juliet.
As both Romeo and Juliet stem from opposing families, they “deny thy father, and decline thy name” (Page 89; Act 2, Scene 2), by dishonourably overlooking all commitment to their parents to see each other; indicating that their loyalty to their household is inferior to their love for one another. In spite of if Juliet’s “kinsmen discover thee (Romeo) here they will murder thee” (Page 89; Act 2, Scene 2), Romeo is figured out to receive affirmation that Juliet’s feelings are shared.
Through this encounter of Romeo risking being killed in order to see his love Juliet, Shakespeare shows that their love has greater importance than the possibility of being seen and killed. Shakespeare effectively contributes Romeo and Juliet in the ‘Balconey Scene’ to promote that love dominates all. Through exploitation of Romeo, Shakespeare articulates how Romeo’s love for his slaughtered friend lead to a hunger for vengeance, in defiance of perhaps receiving the death sentence, showing that his love victories over the worry of death.
As a good friend of Romeo’s, Mercutio supports the Montague’s in the ancient feud. An example of Mercutio safeguarding the Montague’s is when Tybalt, a member of the loathed Capulet household, abuses Romeo and Mercutio steps in on Romeo’s behalf. Attempting to bring back peace, Romeo gets in between the 2 combatants and Mercutio “hath got his mortal hurt” (Page 149; Act 3, Scene 1) on Romeo’s account. In spite of his “life shall pay the surrender of peace” (page 17; Act 1, Scene 1), Romeo looks for vengeance on Tybalt as he loves his killed buddy.
As Romeo eliminates Tybalt out of love for Mercutio, Shakespeare recommends that love conquered the thought of being punished with death. Shakespeare manifests the final scene of Romeo and Juliet to highlight how love triumphs over the horror of death and illustrates how the Capulet and Montague moms and dads’ shared love for their children dismisses the ancient fight. The protagonists, Romeo and Juliet’s choice of being eliminated rather than “death be prorogued, wanting thy love” (Page 91; Act 2, Scene 2), shows they would rather pass away than death be delayed without the fulfilment of each other’s love.
Romeo commits suicide as he is unaware that Juliet’s death is fiction, which results in Juliet finding his corpse when she awakens and stabs herself as they both do not want to deal with the lack of each other’s love. Again, Shakespeare represents that love conquers the most feared prospect of life: death. With “their death, bury their moms and dads’ strife” (Page 9; Beginning) as the moms and dads mutually like their deceased children, which results in getting rid of the ancient fight, developing peace at last.
In the final scene, love exceeds the terror of death, corresponding with the moms and dads dismissing the hostility as they equally like their kids, even more proclaiming Shakespeare’s main message that love conquers all. Shakespeare exploits a variety of characters and scenes to stress throughout the play, Romeo and Juliet, that love prevails over all. The distinguished ‘Balcony Scene’ is embraced by Shakespeare to show that love dominates the households’ loyalty, in addition to the fear of death.
In addition, the fear of death is again conquered by Romeo’s love for his murdered good friend Mercutio. The final scene of Romeo and Juliet further suggests that love goes beyond death, along with love dismissing the Capulet and Montague dispute. Death is a common aspect that like conquers, corresponding with love renouncing an ancient fight. These events and characters are efficiently assembled by Shakespeare to highlight the plays main message, that like dominates all.
