Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Romeo and Juliet In the love story about Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is an important character as all the events are based on his actions. Romeo the son of Montague falls in love with Juliet the daughter of lord and lady Capulet, this creates a grave problem as the Capulet's and Montague's have had a feud this has been festered for a long time. The impression I get of Romeo when he first comes on to the scene is that he sad and miserable he also shows emotion with his words it is as if he intends on keeping himself to himself. "Many a morning hath he there been seen, with tears augmenting the fresh morning's dew." Lord Montague also says that "Away from the light steels home from my heavy son." This shows that Romeo is secretive and keeps away from daylight. This also shows that Romeo is trying to hide away from people as he has been seen in the early morning looking sad and even crying. ...read more.

This shows that even Romeo realises that he is not himself that he has lots his real self. Overall the feeling I get of Romeo is that he feels too sorry for himself, and that he thinks he will not find another lady for him. I think Romeo sounds a bit of a wimp as he can't get over such little matters and he cries about them in away this makes Romeo look as if he is a one women man. Though this might be true benvolio thinks Romeo will find another woman. Benvolio persuades Romeo to go to the party which the Capulet has organised, Benvolio tells him that Rosaline will be there due to this Romeo agreed to go to the party. Before the party Benvolio says to Romeo "I will make thee think thy swan a crow" This shows that benvolio is certain that if Romeo looks at other women he will definitely forget about Rosaline and will surely fall in love with someone else. ...read more.

Conclusion

Due to this Romeo says to himself "My life is my foe's debt" This shows that Romeo now feels that his life and happiness now depend on his enemy. Later on after the party had finished Romeo sneaked to see Juliet. When Romeo sees Juliet on the balcony talking to herself about Romeo how she loves him but how it impossible for them to be as both of their families are having a feud. Romeo decides to listen you her before replying "Call me but 'love' and I'm be new baptised henceforth I never be Romeo" When Romeo says this to Juliet he suggests to her that hew is prepared to deny his name and his family if she will love him. Romeo also tells Juliet how love overcomes all obstacles, he says that "With love's light wings did I o'eperch these walls for stony limits cannot hold love out" By saying this to Juliet Romeo also tells her that he is risking his life coming to her this shows that Romeo is brave and would do anything for love. ...read more.
