  • Act II Scene II -Power of Love
  • O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name; Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And I'll no longer be a Capulet
  • Act II Scene II -Power of Love
  • Alack, there lies more peril in thine eye Than twenty of their swords: look thou but sweet, And I am proof against their enmity.
  • If they do see thee, they will murder thee.
  • Act II Scene II -Power of Love
  • With love’s light wings did I o’er-perch these walls, For stony limits cannot hold love out: And what love can do, that dares love attempt;
  • The orchard walls are high and hard to climb, And the place death, considering who thou art, If any of my kinsmen find thee here.
  • Explanation 1
  • In act 2, scene 2, Romeo is walking around the backyard of the Capulets when suddenly he hears Juliet speaking. He realizes she is talking about him, so he stays quiet and continues to listen. She speaks about her love for him, and how her lover is sadly a Montague and she would leave her family to be able to love him. This shows the theme of power of love because Romeo and Juliet love each other very much, but their families break their relationship apart causing a betrayal that crushes them. Even though their families would be angry, their love for each other drives them to get married and this shows them the best the world has to offer. Due to the power of love, Romeo and Juliet get married without the consent of their families and must hide this secret from them.

They begin talking about their relationship, and Juliet mentions how her family will kill him if they see he is with her. Romeo says he would rather see twenty of Juliet’s family members with swords than her giving him an angry look. This shows the theme of power of love because Romeo would put his own life in danger in return for Juliet’s love. He risks his life just to be able to talk to her knowing that he could get killed at any moment.This truly shows how much he cares for Juliet, and how he would do anything for her.
  • Explanation 3
  • In act 2, scene 2, Romeo is still standing in the garden, talking to Juliet above from the balcony. Juliet knows it’s difficult getting to the balcony, and Romeo is in a lot of danger. But Romeo finds nothing a challenge when it comes to Juliet. This shows the theme of power of love because he doesn’t think her threatening family stands a chance against him, and love will make him do anything. Juliet’s family is no obstacle for him, and Romeo is willing to go to dangerous heights for her. This shows that Romeo has such a strong desire for Juliet that he would sacrifice anything in his life for her. Love makes him go crazy, seeing that he puts himself in dangerous situations to be with her.
