He was in love with rosaline before her and it look liked he was heartbroken and so when he saw the beauty of juliet, he immedietly became attached to her plus you have to admit they make such a cute coupke, the story's sad though don't you think? hope that helped!
theyre put together.. There is a speech at the end of the play about how there has never been a sadder more loving story than that of romeo and juliet. They also say how loyal and well they went together.
A recurring motif in Romeo and Juliet are stars. They are symbolic of several things. Romeo and Juliet talk about each other as sources of light: "O she doth teach the torches to burn bright," "it is the east and Juliet is the Sun", "and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world wil…l be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun". In this last quote, Juliet wants Romeo to be cut out "in little stars". Stars, like torches, illuminate the night, and the night is the time for love, just as the day is the time for fighting. Stars are also symbolic of fate. In the prologue Romeo and Juliet are described as "star-crossed". Romeo later says, "Then I defy you stars!" (MORE)
Lots of things are symbols in Romeo and Juliet. Indeed, words are symbols and the play is made up entirely of words. Similes and metaphors are a particular kind of symbol which is spelled out for you in the text. In "like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear" the jewel symbolizes Juliet. There are more g…eneral tendencies for one thing to have the same symbolic meaning. Some are conventional: "stars" are a symbol for fate (This is conventional because of the influence of astrology). In a general way, the heat of day symbolizes anger and fighting, but this is particular to this play. Benvolio uses this symbol when he says "the day is hot and the Capulets are abroad." (MORE)
Nothing, but Friar Lawrence sends him a note, once Romeo is in Mantua, to come and get Juliet from the Capulet tomb in 42 hours. This is so that they can both escape Verona and live happily ever after :)
Romeo sends beautiful flowers and love tokens to show his love for Juliet and let her know that he is okay.
He overhears her talking when she thinks nobody can hear her. She says she is in love with him at this time.
She loved him because her eyes saw his good Looks Romeo loved her because of her eyes and she was sexy
\nSymbolize is a loaded word... It means "representd." "$" represents money, or "MPH" represents "Miles Per Hour," but those are specific and direct things.

Benvolio is the peace-loving person in Romeo and Juliet... He doesn't like fighting. And he hates the dispite about the Capulets and the Mong. SO there is your answer Benvolio is
I don't believe Romeo and Juliet is a tale of love, but rather lust. He had just come off of saying he was in "love" with Rosaline. Now the second he sees Juliet, he kisses her a few times and now he says he wants her as his wife. That's not the case. He doesn't want to live with her, he wants sex. …Not only does he want to marry in secret, he doesn't even have a plan for their life afterwards. If you think about it, the only reason he wants to marry her is to have sex without ruining either of their reputations. (MORE)
It is a reasonable question to ask: are Romeo and Juliet really in love? Shakespeare gives us reason to doubt this from the very beginning of the play when Romeo is shown to be obsessive over Rosaline. For Romeo to be so depressed for what seems like so long over one girl and then completely forge…tting her at the sight of another he thought was prettier can cause some distrust that he actually cared about Juliet. Also Juliet, who had just admitted to her mother and nurse that she had given little thought to marriage, was married to Romeo a few days later. So what came over these two when they met at the party - true love or just love of the other's good looks? Before we can know if Romeo and Juliet really do love each other, we must first ask ourselves, what is love? Love is a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. Romeo and Juliet appear to have this for each other. All they want to do is be with each other, to please the other -even to the point of death. Juliet tells Romeo in the balcony scene, "â¦how much I love thy company" and before being married, Romeo says, "but whatever sorrow can, it cannot countervail the exchange joy that one short minute gives me in her sight" both quotes shows that they love spending time together. They are also willing to give up anything and everything to be with each other. Romeo wishes to die rather than be without Juliet's love, saying: "My life would be better ended by their hate than death proroguÃ¨d, wanting of thy love." Juliet explains the happiness of her marriage to Romeo by telling him "â¦The more I give to thee, the more I have." Obviously, they want the best for one another and want to be together. (If that ain't love then I don't know what love is)(I'm so glad I found you, love being around you -there's only one thing to do three words for you I love you)(Pay no attention to the things in parentheses, they are not part of the essay, but somehow relatedâ¦) There are several differences between Romeo's "love" of Rosaline and his love of Juliet. First, when Romeo found out that he could not be with Rosaline, he just sulked around, talking poetically about love, or at least what he thought love was. When he found out he could not be with Juliet, he went so far as to risk his life going back to Verona to see her, then killing himself at the sight of her dead. When he talked about Rosaline, he just bragged of her good looks - that were going to waste by her swearing to a life of chastity - and expressed how sad she made him. When Romeo thinks of Juliet, however, he is filled with hope and happiness. After he lost everything; his home, his family, his friends, he still looked forward to seeing Juliet and was able to get through his exile. Romeo's constant talk of Rosaline in the beginning of the play is more of him wanting to be in love than him actually loving her. But when Romeo and Juliet met, everything changed for the both of them. Romeo cast away his superficial thoughts of love and learned what love truly meant, caring for someone. Juliet, a one naive child caring little about love, grew up quickly; doing everything in her power to remain true to her husband. They have been young or carless, but when you die rather than live without somebody, when you give up your family and place in society to be with them, you more than like what they look like~ you love them.

Early in the play, Romeo and Juliet meet at the Capulet's party and they both fall in love at first sight.
Bloody rose, dagger, poison. (Actually, a bloody rose has nothing to do with Romeo and Juliet. Roses really only come up in Juliet's famous line "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet".)
Love is a mystery. Who knows why people fall in love? Maybe she thought he was cute. Maybe she was impressed at his ability to talk her up in sonnet form. Maybe it was because he kissed by the book. Probably a bit of all of them. Their moment at the party was magic and so was their night on the balc…ony, but the moment when Juliet's infatuation blossomed into full-blown love was when she said to the Nurse, "Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband? Ah, poor my lord, what tongue shall smooth thy name, when I, thy three hours' wife have mangled it?" At that point she discovered the depth of her commitment to Romeo; at that point she became a woman. (MORE)
Well that depends. If you believe in love at first sight then maybe. It's hard to really tell considering the time the book was written and our views today of kids(they were only 15) in love. Plus the question itself is an opinion.
their families hate eachother. they could both be severely punished and romeo could be killed
Well, to answer my own question, here's an essay I wrote in grade 8 for this... . Fate plays a powerful role throughout the tale of Romeo and Juliet, a role of which none of the characters can compare with, witness this role as you observe the play (In my case, reading the play).. All the way th…rough the misfortune of Romeo and Juliet, several types of love are shown. Benvolio feels that women are all identical, whereas, at the beginning, Romeo believes that love is some-sort of a form of pain. At the beginning, Juliet doesn't even know what love means. Paris's and Lady Capulet's definition for love is "in appearance." It is pretty obvious that Shakespeare wanted the audience to think that the only true love is the love that exists between Romeo and Juliet. I think that the first type of love that the audience is introduced to is the love of Benvolio; by how he feels that all women are identical. According to him, a man should love a woman for only the length of their relationship, meaning that if the relationship were to end, the man wouldn't feel sadness or sorrow, etc. even if the woman were to reject the man to begin with. In either situation, the man should plainly begin a new relationship with another woman.. The next description of love comes from Romeo, but this is before the time he met Juliet. According to his definition, love is pain, but he means the kind of love that isn't felt by both people. I suppose Romeo is both right and also wrong, because not returned love is painful to the heart, but Romeo doesn't truly love, as he is simply infatuated by a woman.. The next meaning of love comes from Juliet, before meeting Romeo; she didn't even have a definition of love. She seems to not know what love is, and, for that matter, does not seem to be concerned whatsoever. She remains unaware until she actually meets Romeo. Romeo and Juliet's love for each other also goes beyond one other thing: names. It shows that names don't matter. In our community the difference in names would be equal to two people of different races. The people would come from racist families in a modern day remake of the play. The final example of love in the play is parental love. This is shown in Act 5, scene 3 (Had to read on the internet for this essay, sorry). Lady Montague dies due to separation from Romeo. Capulet, Montague, Lady Capulet, and even the Nurse show that they love either Romeo or Juliet in this way as well. . In the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, countless types of love are shown. None of them are wrong, because the word "love" is a subject to interpretation, meaning that it's exact meaning is questionable, but it is obvious that Shakespeare did not have this in mind when he wrote the play. Shakespeare displays for us that the only type of love worth being in is "true love." He also shows us that, with all types of love, there is also all types of pain. If his objective was to influence the audience to believe that the only real love is the type of love that existed between Romeo and Juliet, I believe he accomplished this goal.. Fate plays a powerful role throughout the tale of Romeo and Juliet, a role of which none of the characters can compare with, witness this role as you observe the play (In my case, reading the play)..

Romeo and Juliet Actually that's not true because its not a love story its a tragedy it was stupid to be in love back then no one fell in love. Romeo was a little player and fell for almost every girl he sees and Juliet tricks him into marriage so she doesnt have to marry county Paris.
Benvolio doesn't seem to love anybody in Romeo and Juliet. In fact at the end of 1.1, and again at the beginning of 1.2 he seems to be teasing Romeo about being in love with Rosaline. But Benvolio's teasing is quite gentle - so perhaps Benvolio has been in love himself at some stage. Mercutio al…so teases Romeo about his love for Rosaline (2.1, and again at 3.1) - but Mercutio's teasing is vicious and obscene. Mercutio clearly has some kind of an issue with girls. (MORE)
"I do bite my thumb, Sir." Symbolizes an insult "He's a man of wax." Symbolizes that Count Paris is good-looking "So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows." Symbolizes that Juliet among the other girls (including Rosaline) looks more beautiful than all the others.
So that Romeo can talk to the Nurse and tell where and when Romeo and Juliet will be married.
At least at first, the attraction was physical. But he must have noted her quick wit in responding to his sonnet at the party. Later, in the garden, he must have been impressed by her directness, lack of guile and clarity of thought, as well as a more revealing glimpse of her physical attributes. In… a world where romance was a lot of phony posturing, like Rosaline's "vow of chastity", and Romeo's affected melancholy, the directness of Juliet must have been like a blast of fresh air to him: stimulating, bracing, intoxicating. (MORE)
Romeo and Juliet's suicides symbolize their undying love for one another. Romeo killed himself so he could stay with Juliet forever in eternal life, and when Juliet awoke to find her love dead, she killed herself for the same reason.
Thinking of Paris as a symbol doesn't do the poor sap much justice--he is a character, not a symbol. I suppose you could imagine him symbolizing arranged marriages or something, but it takes away from the way the play is structured. Indeed, if you view the characters as symbols, you are straying fro…m the main point of the drama. (MORE)
well this story became a tragety because of Juliet so i think a bloody white rose and dagger would simbolys Juliet better for she is the pure angel that became rebelious at the idea of marriage and became the dagger who who helped shed blood for her self
At the beginning of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is deeply in love with Rosaline however she doesn't love him back. This is Unrequited love in Romeo and Juliet
yes there was true love in this story why would there not be they fell for each other at first sight
Romeo, of course, but also Paris, the Nurse, Friar Lawrence and, in their own way, her parents.
Paris wants to marry her. He thinks he loves her, and he is big-headed enough to think she loves him, but they have hardly exchanged two words.
Yes Romeo and Juliet did make love. That was the point of sneakingRomeo into Juliet's bedroom. They were already married by thatpoint, remember.
Juliet, perhaps, most perfectly describes her love for Romeo by refusing to describe it: âBut my true love is grown to such excess / I cannot sum up some of half my wealthâ (3.1.33â34). Love, in other words, resists any single metaphor because it is too powerful to be so easily contai…ned or understood. (MORE)
Romeo is not meant to love Juliet because they are from warring families, the Montagues and the Capulets, and therefore their love would never be accepted by their parents.
Because both of they're families had an argument that has made them enemies. If she chooses to be with Romeo her family might disown her. If she were to marry Romeo he would also be disowned and therefore she would not be accepted into his family. So basically they were on they're own and her only g…ain would be love and potentially happiness, only everyone knows Romeo and Juliet had a tragic ending (it's Shakespeare not a Fairy Tale). (MORE)
She doesn't have to send things to him because he is smuggled into her bedroom before he has to leave town but after he is banished. She doesn't send anything to him when he is Mantua. It might have helped if she had. She does send a ring with the nurse when she sends her to deliver the message to …Romeo to come to her bed. (MORE)
Symbol as in any symbol you've seen before. One example being the symbol of the Capulet's on Tybalt's firearm.
Most famously, Romeo and Juliet discuss their love in Juliet's backyard. Juliet is in her window and Romeo is in the bushes down below. It's in Act 2 Scene 2 of the play.
Their two families- the Capulets and the Montagues- hate each other. The families do not want their children to be in love.
Not too long after they met! They spent the night together at Juliet's house, that much I can remember Wilt thou be gone? it is not yet near day: It was the nightingale, and not the lark, That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear; Nightly she sings on yon pomegranate-tree: Believe me, love, it …was the nightingale. (MORE)
love is never blind. you just only see the one you love. to the question, its not blind love it was just bare and compassion for each other and friendship also played a part in their care and love not blind love but just care, compassion and love.
Well because it's a love story they have no choice but to fall in love with each other really! There's no "should" to it.
Her Virginity (well, she gave that up willingly), and her life (by taking the potion).
She is afraid of losing her family. Even though she says she she is willing to give up her name if Romeo will love her (the balcony scene), when it comes down to it, she knows that if she loves Romeo, she will disgrace and lose her family. It's a choice she doesn't want to make, so she tries to get …the best of both worlds by following the Friar's plan. (MORE)
Hell no! It was all a story about lust. Remember that Romeo and Juliet was a tragedy play, not a romance play.
Only for a moment, Romeo blames his love for Juliet for Mercutio's death. He changes his mind very soon after.
I think this is referring to this bit of dialogue: Romeo: Lady, by yonder blessed moon I swear... Juliet: O, swear not by the moon [ ... ] lest thy love prove likewise variable. In other words, she's not telling him not to swear his love, she's telling him "Don't swear on the moon. It changes.… I don't want a love that waxes and wanes." If you meant something else, please be more specific. (MORE)
Not something Lady Capulet shows much of. Lady Montague, on the other hand, seems much attached to Romeo and dies from grief at the idea of being separated from him.
It probably depends on what your definition of "truly in love" is. They certainly thought so.
he would die for her. thats how much he loves her. and he did diefor her.
In Romeo and Juliet, as in real life, people show their love by changing their behaviour. Romeo learns to be patient with the taunts of Tybalt, and to be a comfort to Juliet when he is forced to leave her. Juliet becomes more adventurous and also more devious in order to protect her secret and try t…o have a life with Romeo. (MORE)
