876 words - 4 pages

Young LoveRomeo and Juliet, one of Shakespeare's finest works of art, takes place in the thirteenth century in Italy, Verona and Mantua. The setting of the play is rich and elegant, everyone dresses well, and lives in fancy surroundings. The main characters of the theatrical production, Romeo and Juliet, meet at a festival and quickly fall in love, but soon discover that they are of enemy families. The two families, the Capulets and the Montagues, have been in rivalry for generations, and uniting the two could by no means happen. Without thinking, both Romeo and Juliet decide that nothing will stop them from being together. Having the implosive behaviors that most teenagers acquire, the two young lovers plan to be wed the next day.Although Romeo was certain his one and only love is Rosaline, his mind unexpectedly changes with one look at Juliet. For instance, "Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night"(I, 5, 54-55). This demonstrates how quickly Romeo disregards Rosaline, and moves on to a new love. Romeo has never felt a deeper love for anything in his life, and he has no intentions of letting go of it. Romeo, filled with impatience and youthful passion for love, will risk anything to be with Juliet. For example, when Juliet is speaking to Romeo, "How camest thou hither, tell me, and wherefore? The orchard walls are high and hard to climb, and the place of death, considering who thou art, if any kinsmen find thee here"(II, 2, 62-65). This shows how bold and daring Romeo truthfully is, risking his life to climb over soaring walls to enter the Capulet orchard. If any kinsmen come across Romeo, death would be the punishment to this love stricken man. Romeo soon decides he must be with Juliet for all eternity, "As mine on hers, so hers is set on mine, and all combined, save what thou must combine by holy marriage. When and where and how we met, we wooed, and made exchange of vow, I'll tell thee as we pass; but the I pray, that thou consent to marry us today"(II, 3, 59-64). Romeo tends to act before he thinks, and marrying Juliet will bring great troubles between the Capulets and the Montagues. Secretly tying the knot with Juliet will only add more fuel to the fire.Before Juliet even knew Romeo's name, she is positive that he was her one and only true love. Juliet speaks with the Nurse, "Go ask his name.---If he be married, my grave is like to be my wedding bed"(I, 5, 136-137)....
