In the play, it does not come off as “puppy love” but true love. Romeo and Juliet meet, get married, and die for each other. Romeo says “Did my heart love ‘til now? Forswear its sight.
For I never saw true beauty ‘til this night,” showing his strong feeling and emotion. When the reader reads this quote said by Romeo, they would think of Romeo’s old loves such as Rosaline and think how he yearned for her, yet how Juliet has popping appearance and comes off as more valuable. Real love only comes around once, and when Romeo says this, he proves that she happens to be his one love, and he appeared dumb struck and blind until he saw her. Juliet says, “’Tis but thy name that is my enemy, thou art thyself though not a Montague. What is Montague?
It is nor hand, not foot, nor arm, nor face, nor any part belonging to a man. Oh, what’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet; so Romeo would, were not Romeo called, retain that dear perfection to which he owes without that title. ” The reader thinks that the love will not work since forbidden and wrong, but the name of you does not change who you will always live with as yourself and it should not change your rights. When Juliet says this and states it does not matter if what she did will be accepted as wrong, it shows she will do anything for Romeo which shows true love.
Romeo chanced many loves, desperately, but states Juliet as the most worthy, and she also says it does not matter whether you take part in the life of a Montague or Capulet; love will be love and should not have rules or regulations. The way Shakespeare portrays the thoughts and words of Romeo and Juliet; you know it comes from the heart and that it shows love. “Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night ‘til it be morrow,” says Juliet after they both share their love for each other.
When the reader sees this they think that it will not grow long until they will be seen again but it will show a painful while for them. It shows love because when love exists between someone, they want to spend all of their time with eachother, not away from them. “O my love, my wife! Death, that hath suck’d the honey of thy breath hath had no power yet upon thy beauty,” says Romeo. After reading this, it comes to know Juliet fakes the death and that she will awake soon while Romeo thinks she will never awake, and she will stay in eternal sleep.
Romeo states that even though the life has been sucked out of her, her beauty remains and it shows love. If it were lust he would not depress over it. When there is marriage and death for someone in just five days, love exists and you cannot fall for someone so quickly without feelings. To show and share love, marry, and die for someone that shares the same affections of love, true love exists and there will always live strong feelings between them. Juliet can barely go a night without seeing Romeo.
Even though Romeo thought he loved before, he swears that the only person he happened to love could be Juliet, and that all his other lost relationships showed to exist as nothing but maybe lust. Romeo also states that nothing can change Juliet’s beauty. Juliet says it does not matter which family you happen to stay a part of, and as long as you love someone, it should be allowed. Loving someone involves dedicating your life to them. Romeo and Juliet do dedicate their lives and die so they will not exist with fraught with misery without their eternal love.
