There is only one life that is soon past. Only what’s done with love will last. In the story of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet are enemies because their families don’t like each other but yet they still fall in love. Romeo and Juliet begin the play trapped by their social roles. Romeo is a young man who is expected to chase women, but he has chosen Rosaline, who has sworn to remain a virgin. The way Romeo speaks about Rosaline suggests he is playing a role rather than feeling true, overpowering emotion. He expresses his frustration in clichés that make his cousin Benvolio laugh at him. Romeo is also expected to be excited by the feud with the Capulets, but Romeo finds the feud as miserable as his love. When we meet Juliet she is in her bedroom, physically trapped between her Nurse and her mother. As a young woman her role is to obediently wait for her parents to marry her to someone. When her mother announces that Paris will be Juliet’s future husband, Juliet’s response is obedient, but unenthusiastic. Shakespeare uses similes, metaphors Friar Lawrence, Romeo, Juliet, and the Nurse to show how love is a powerful feeling. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses a simile to highlight that love is a powerful feeling. One moment where we see this occur is when Juliet since the nurse her maid to find out when Romeo wanted to meet her so they could marry. “Had she affections and warm youthful blood, she would be as swift in motion as a ball” (Shakespeare 2.5.13). Shakespeare’s choice of diction is important because I choose in the word passion he communicates that lovers have dedication. With the use of the simile in this moment is important because it illustrates Juliet’s enthusiasm because it demonstrates how lovers don’t think about pain Ultimately you will learn hear that lovers take risks to be together. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses fire Lawrence to show that love is a powerful feeling. One moment when we see this occur is when friar Lawrence thinks that Romeo and Juliet’s wedding will end the hate/ war between both families “For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households rancor into pure love” (Shakespeare 2.3.91-96). The choice of diction is important because by using the words spirit and love he communicates that pure love can’t solve any problem. The use of this language shows that friar Lawrence is hopeful and caring for and of Romeo and Juliet. The reader can infer that many people in the story believe in love and the good things it can bring to others lifes not just the lovers.Shakespeare uses a metaphor to show that love is a powerful feeling, one moment when we see this occur t is when Juliet talks about how she wants to kiss Romeo but it would be a sin, “My lips two blushing pilgrims , ready to stand too smooth that rough touch with tender kiss” (Shakespeare 1.5.93-94). Here the language is revealing because the words two blushing pilgrims show that love makes you feel like a whole ass different person especially when next to your significant other. Ultimately come base that love is tempting ultimately we learn hear that love can encourage to make bad decisions.Shakespeare may also use different similes to show and communicate the team the love is a powerful feeling one moment when we see the secure his one Mercutio Romeo’s best friend fights for him and reminds him when he’s wrong “they head is full of quarrels as an egg is full of meat” (Shakespeare 3.1.22-22) yards are use it till this language to show that even friendship love can get you to have wow thoughts friendship love is a strong feeling that can get you to risk your physic for your friend is striking that love gets the best and worst out of both people.Shakespeare also uses Juliet to show that love is a powerful feeling Julia just found them found out that Romeo killed Tybalt because Tybalt killed Mercutio and when the nurse found out she told Juliet but she didn’t tell Juliet the full story. “O break my heart, poor bankrupt break at once” (Shakespeare 3.2.58 The authors choice of diction is important because it tells the reader how Juliet feels incomplete without her lover. To highlight that love is a powerful feeling Shakespeare uses Juliet when she found out what happened to Romeo (got exiled) as an example for the audience to understand how much she loved him. The authors choice of diction is important because it tells the reader how Juliet feels, broken, The authors language ultimately conveys that Juliet loves her husband based on the evidence love is hurting Juliet because she scared her man died that’s why it’s powerful.Once again Shakespeare uses fire Lawrence to highlight how love is a powerful feeling a moment when we see this occurred is friar Lawrence explaining his mission and possible plan to get to to get Ro once again Shakespeare uses fire Lawrence to highlight how love is a powerful feeling a moment when we see this occur is friar Lawrence explaining his mission impossible plan to get Romeo and Juliet together. “And this shall free thee from this present shame”(Shakespeare 4.1.119). Here the language is revealing because the words Free and Thee suggest Friar’s plan is the best and will get them together. The use of this character is important because it shows how others are enthusiast over Romeo and Juliet’s love. What we learn here is that others care for the lovers love, and try to see/make them happy.Even though the Nurse be acting like she doesn’t care for Romeo, she does because she knows that Romeo makes Juliet happy. Friar Lawrence hooked them both up real good, literally, he was the one that married them and one of the biggest supports for both of them “For by your leaves, you shall not stay alone, Til Holy Church incorporate two in one”(Shakespeare 2.6.36-37). At the end of the story he tried to protect himself a little, there was no reason to not they were both dead and he would have been sent to jail for being like a partner in crime. In the final scenes, Romeo and Juliet are more trapped than ever. Neither character can go back to who they were before they met, but the possibility of them being together is very slim. The situation feels impossible, and reality intrudes on all sides. For Romeo, reality takes the form of his banishment to Mantua. For Juliet, reality is her impending marriage to Paris. The two lovers’ separate fates close in on them. In a desperate attempt to escape her marriage to Paris, Juliet fakes her own death, using a sleeping potion given to her by Friar Lawrence. Reality intrudes once more in an outbreak of plague in Mantua, which prevents Romeo from getting the news that Juliet’s only asleep. Romeo rushes to Juliet’s tomb, where he finds Paris. Romeo, surrendering to the circumstances that have trapped him in his tragic role, kills Paris, then enters Juliet’s tomb and kills himself moments before she wakes. When Juliet finds Romeo dead, she stabs herself with his dagger. By killing themselves, the lovers accept that they are trapped by their fate. At the same time, they escape from the world that has kept them apart.In conclusion we learn here that love can be very powerful. This emotion makes you act different and involves other people in it. Love makes you lie and do things that your not supposed to do (Romeo KILLING Tybalt because he killed Mercutio). And no matter how much it hurts nobody can live without it especially not “Star Crossed Lovers”.
