  • Theme
  • Romeo & Juliet By: William Shakespeare Theme: Love is passionate and painful.
  • Description of the Theme
  • I am William Shakespeare and throughout my play Romeo and Juliet I try to show the audience passion and pain are intertwined and one can not exist without the other. This is shown throughout the play by their love leading to constant death and destruction. The six people that die in this play are Romeo, Juliet, Tybalt, Paris, Lady Montague, and Mercutio. What Shakespeare is trying to tell us is depicted in the following four scenes.
  • Act 1, scene 1
  • Why, such is love's transgression. Griefs of mine own lie heavy in my breast.
  • Tell me in sadness, who is that you love?
  • Just as in real life, Romeo and Juliet's love is passionate and painful.
  • Act 1, scene 5
  • Palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.
  • What is Shakespeare trying to teach us about love?
  • Act 2, scene 2
  • O Romeo, Romeo! Where fore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name!
  • In Act 1, scene 1 Romeo is talking with Benvolio and shows that he is confused and upset with trying to explain his thoughts and feelings about love. He is upset and sad because he loves Rosaline and she does not love him back.
  • Act 5, scene 3
  • Romeo and Juliet are at Capulet's party in the middle of the dance floor where they meet for the first time. They then touch their palms together and share a kiss.
  • Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?
  • Romeo and Juliet are expressing their love for each other by speaking their thoughts out loud even though the other can't hear. Eventually, Romeo makes a comment directly to Juliet and they state their passionate love for each other face to face.
  • But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the East, and Juliet is the sun!
  • Eventually, their love lead to the deaths of many people on both sides of their families. In the end it is Romeo and Juliet who die over the love. Love is passionate and painful!
  • For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.
