Romeo & Juliet
The magnificently written Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare is a tragic tale about lust and love, and the lovers take their own lives. The tale takes place in a Italian city called Verona where two rival family are in a dispute against which house is superior, but out of this, two destined lovers found each other and fell in love. But in thinking too fast their plan gets crushed and turns into something far more depressing than it should have been.
Don’t fall in love too quickly, this is Shakespeare’s warning to us when he says, "Wisely and slow/ They stumble that run fast." The entirety of the play’s theme is summed up in this quote. The whole play takes place in a time span of three days and in those three days they fall in love, get married, commit three or more crimes and kill each other in the devastating ending of this beautiful love story. As a product of their death, their families come together and start new, in non-violent and non-hateful lives. When Shakespeare wrote Romeo and Juliet his main argument was about quick love mistaken for lust. "For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night." Said by Romeo in Act 1, Scene 5
While most good relationships take years to build, Romeo and Juliet met two hours before they decided to get married. They had never met before and didn’t even know each other’s names before they exchanged passionate kisses at the Capulet’s party. Talk about rushing things! Second, Romeo and Juliet are supposed to be very young. Romeo is seventeen or eighteen while Juliet is only thirteen. Their feelings are hormone-driven. Romeo decided he was in love with Juliet, just from her looks, before they even speak to each other. They are so young and haven’t met enough people to know who their “soul-mate” is. Many adults don’t even know exactly what they’re looking for in love. Why should they rush into things with one person when they have their adult lives ahead of them to decide whom they want to be with?...
