Eulogy: Romeo
Citizens of fair Verona, today we gather here to grieve the loss of a precious child of God. Romeo Montague, a young man who was like a son to me, has sadly passed this realm. Although fate has already accomplished its deed, we can still remember the legacy Romeo has left at such a tender age.
I first met Romeo when he was just a little child, born in a society absorbed in hatred. Romeo had a good life but was lonely. His parents did not have the time or energy to look after him and show him the attention he deserved. I often saw him wondering the streets at night misbehaving. Once I saw him steal a loaf of bread of his best friend Benvolio. As Benvolio treated him with insults, I came along and paid for that loaf of bread and took him back to my cell to teach him some life lessons.
There, I taught him how to act properly, how to treat everyone fairly and with equality and how to live life in peace. I taught him to disregard this conflict and always acquire new friends not enemies.

As life went on I began to see a young arrogant boy turn into a gentle young man. One day Romeo visited me wanting some advice, he was love sick. He was depressed that a young woman known by the name Rosaline resisted his love and decided to become a nun. I counselled Romeo and advised him and his dear friends Mercutio and Benvolio helped him seek other woman in Verona. Before long, Romeo returned to me to give me the words he was in love once again. But this time I knew this love was real.
The words he used to describe Juliet and their love for each was so deep and loyal that I was jealous, jealous that he had found the one for him yet he is a lot younger than me. Romeo bugged me till I gave in to marry him and his Juliet, the only reason I gave in was because I purely believed that they were in love.
Romeo was a very persistent but he was always determined and a caring and I knew him for that. When Romeo was banished I was devastated and when Juliet came to me

    William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet is without doubt one of the most well-known love story. Throughout the five acts of the play, one tragedy follows another, with the famous suicide of Romeo and Juliet as a tragic conclusion. Throughout the play, it may seem that Romeo caused these events to unfold, however it is unjust to say that he bears all responsibility for the tragedy. The decisions, actions and circumstances that other characters made and faced have also contributed to the tragic outcome. Nevertheless, it is also in the hands of fate that destined the immature deaths of Romeo and Juliet…

    Oh, I am so embarrassed. Earlier this night my one true love, Romeo, heard me confessing my love for him. I was asking myself why he had to have the name Montague and requested he change his name for me and forget about his father’s wishes. I never noticed how ridiculous this terrible feud is before! It makes no sense; Two intelligent families that cannot seem to solve a feud and no one even remembers what started the whole thing. Anyways, I truly feared for Romeo when he was up with me on my balcony, but I did not want him to leave! My dear relatives would murder him if they found out he was with me! Oh Romeo, why must you be a Montague? I was so frightened that he would think I was too effortless and he wanted me to play hard to get but…

    Romeo: The son of Montague, Romeo is first introduced to us as a sad, melancholic, apathetic youth. His reason for sadness is universal; Rosaline his love will not return his affections. Not initially daring, it is his friends Mercutio and Benvolio who suggest he gatecrash or arrive uninvited at the Capulet party to see Rosaline. There he meets Juliet falling instantly in love. From this point on, Romeo no longer is melancholic, but dynamic and courageous, risking his life at the Capulet's house to be near Juliet and later breaking a banishment order which threatens death for him, to see his Juliet again. Well regarded even by Capulet, his enemy, Romeo is a thoughtful man, unwilling to provoke fighting unlike the hot-blooded, adversarial Tybalt, whom he kills. Romeo also kills Paris but in both encounters sought to avoid fighting, winning only to defend his life. At the end of the play, he commits suicide, rather than live without Juliet, the ultimate display of loyalty for his love Juliet since his life obviously no longer had meaning without her...…

    Both the Capulet family and the Montague family are fools. They think all this fighting will achieve something? Well I hope Christ is looking upon them, for their sake. Now all this fighting has led to the death of a child from each of their families. Romeo and Juliet are dead because of this ludicrous feud, but I will pray for them none the less. I feel as though it is my fault, that I caused all of this, but they are still children of the Lord and it is my duty to look after all of them. I will pray for Romeo and I will pray for Juliet all night in front of the Lord. What if I had told someone about the marriage and the plan to fake Juliet's death? Maybe they would still be with us.…

    Firstly, the language that Romeo uses makes the audience suspicious of his love. He uses quite conceit and exaggerate metaphors making it appear as though he is putting on a show. He likes the idea of being in love and, as he is young, he might not have experience true love before. The language he uses seems quite artificial and elaborate. This reinforces the idea that he is in really in love. Also midway through a speech about his love and Rosaline, his mind seems to wonder as he asks “where shall we dine?” this shows that he is thinking about food and not only about Rosaline.…
