Extracts from this document...

Introduction

How Does Shakespeare make the audience fully aware of Romeo and Juliet's True love Passion During Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses many different techniques to express and fully emphasise how deep and passionate Romeo and Juliet's love for each other is. In comparison to any other reference to love during the play, Romeo and Juliet's love is completely different. This vast contrast makes Romeo and Juliet's love expressed in a very individual, serious passionate way. The couple's love becomes far more apparent due to the loveless society in which they live in. Verona at the time was full of violent feuds between families and the arranged marriages that went on. These Factors all contribute fully to the way the audience is made aware of the couples "True-love passion." Romeo and Juliet's love is made to appear unique as it is presented in Verona, a city with no understanding of true love. ...read more.

"What! Drawn, and talk of peace? I hate the word As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee. Have at thee, coward!" Tybalt puts Benvolio and the Montagues into the same category as "hell, which shows the extent of his feelings for the Montagues. Tybalt immediately appears to be an extremely violent man as, as soon as peace is brought into the conversation he immediately wants to fight. These thoughtless actions from both of the families throughout the play make Romeo and Juliet's love seem unique for the time and place that it is set.

Subsequently Romeo blames Tybalt for Mercutio's death. Romeo sets out to kill Tybalt and consequently does. This results in Romeo being banished from Verona: "Romeo, away, be gone! ...read more.

Conclusion

This is more proof of how shallow and irresponsible the Nurse is when it comes to love. Also later on in the play when Juliet's needs the help of the Nurse, the Nurse gives Juliet advice going against all she has previously told her; "I think it is best you married with the county. O, he's a lovely gentleman!" The Nurse is not considering how Juliet feels for Paris and tells her that she should marry him, whether or not she is in love with him. The audience will now have comparisons of love, they would be able to see just how deep Romeo and Juliet's love is through the complete loveless attitudes of everybody around them and in Verona. She tells Juliet that Romeo is just a "dishclout" in comparison to Paris. The Nurse is once again showing no understanding of Juliet's feelings and is completely unaware of the importance of love, while at the same time once again emphasising the importance and severity of their love to the audience. ...read more.
