  • Love in Romeo and Juliet
  • The theme of of how love can be happiness and torture in "The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespear.
  • Theme Explanation
  • Act 1, Scene 1
  • What sadness lengthens Romeos hours?
  • Not having that, which, having, makes them short.
  • Ay me! Sad hours seem long.
  • Act 2 , Scene 2
  • But soft, what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief That thou her maid art far more fair than she.
  • This theme, expressing both major results of love, occurs all throughout the play from beginning to end. The theme occurs mainly during scenes where Romeo and Juliet are expressing their love for each other or explain what bad things they will do if they cannot be together. Shakespear tries to show the reader the pros and cons to loving somebody and does so in a very clever way.
  • Act 4, Scene 1
  • -Do not deny to him that you love me. :So will ye, I am sure that you love me.
  • In this scene, Benvolio greets Romeo cheerfully and Romeo replies in a very glum way. Benvolio senses Romeo's sadness and asks why he is so sad. Romeo shares his feelings for Rosoline and explains that she will never love him back and how it breaks his heart. Romeo sits in his room, alone in the dark, and cries because of Rosoline. If love does not go well it can cause serious depression or stress, shown during this convorsation between the two characters.
  • Act 5, Scene 3
  • For I come hither arm'd against myself: Stay not, be gone; live, and hereafter say, A madman's mercy bade thee run away.
  • Romeo is expressing his love for Juliet and showing obvious bliss in this scene. He is comparing Juliet to the sun and giving her this heavenly status by representing her by such things. He loves Juliet and that is what is causing his heightened happiness.
  • Paris is talking to Juliet and trying to get her to confess her "love" for him in front of friar Lawrence. Paris is very confident that Juliet loves him and if he ever found out she did not he would be mentally broken, like anyone else in his situation. Juliet is put in this ever so uncomfortable situation and she has to deal with it or break Paris's heart which only makes it worse.
  • -To answer that, I should confess to you. :I will confess to you that I love him.
  • Paris is at the tomb, mourning Juliet's "death", when Romeo arrives to drink poison and die next to Juliet. Paris is in love with Juliet and overreacts when he sees Romeo. Romeo warns Paris to get out of his way, but Paris refuses and they duel over Juliet. After Romeo kills Paris, he realizes they are both doing this out of love. Romeo then proceeds to kill himself and shortly after, Juliet kills herself when she finds out Romeo is dead. All because they loved someone so much.
  • I do defy thy conjurations, And apprehend thee for a felon here.
