Romeo And Juliet's Love Is Not Real Love, But Only An Idea Of The Real Aspect Of True Love

1161 words - 5 pages

Romeo and Juliet is an awesome play written by William Shakespeare in the 15th century. This play is based upon two lovers, Romeo and Juliet, who in just a short period of three days meet, marry, make love, and die. Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet. These two families have gone by many generations with hate towards one-another. Neither family can forgive and forget whatever argument had been started many decades ago. Although the two families despise one another, young Juliet still proclaims, "My only love sprung from my only hate! / Too early seen unknown, and known too late! / Prodigious birth of love it is to me, / That I must love a loath'ed enemy (1.5.137-140)", to Romeo, her ...view middle of the document...

2.125)?" when he has just met this girl. He could not actually have true feelings her because feelings grow over time as you get to know the other person, not in 20 minutes or an hour. At the end of the play when Romeo finds Juliet dead in the Church, he decides to drink poison because that is what he thought a true lover would do. His last words, " Come, bitter conduct, come, unsavoury guide! / Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on/ The dashing rocks thy seasick weary bark! / Here's to my love! O true apothecary! / Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die ( 5.3.116-120)!" Romeo feels the need to die by his lover's side. These quotes prove that Romeo is not in love with Juliet, but only infatuated with the meaning of being in love.Juliet, a Capulet, sees Romeo and immediately falls for him. Juliet says, "My only love sprung from my only hate! / Too early seen unknown, and known too late! / Prodigious birth of love a loathe'd enemy (1.5.1370140)." In my opinion, Juliet is proven to be very immature in the very first scene, which she appears. Her mother tells her of her parent's plans to have her married to Paris and she responds sarcastically in an honest way: "It is an honour that I dream not of (1.3.64-67)." Juliet's mother thinks that she is "?yet a stranger in the world, she hath not seen the change of fourteen years (2.1.8-9)?" At her families party, which Romeo attended, Juliet told Romeo, "You kiss by th' book (1.5.109)." In this, Juliet is saying directly that she knows how characters in a book kiss; like she has kissed a character out of a book before.What is love? People, including myself, have many different opinions on the very topic. I feel that love is when two people have deep, uncontrollable feelings for each other: love is trust, honesty, and fun. In my opinion, love is something that takes...
