Introduction

What do you think of Romeo? Did you sympathize with him thinking him to be a tragic man, Or did his conduct annoy you? Throughout the play Romeo's character develop, as he is able to mature and gain a two-way love. I sympathies for Romeo to a certain extent as he is a tragic young man in many places; he tries to protect himself as well as others. Although Romeo tries to protect lives he annoys me as he is moody throughout the first act and is not able to come out of his depressing mood. Romeo is madly in love with a woman called Rosaline but as soon as he sets eyes on Juliet falls in love with her, this shows Romeo is not a strong young man as his emotions and feelings change suddenly. Romeo's conducts does annoy me when he is depressed due to unrequited love from Rosaline, when he is depressed and moody he hides himself so know one can find him, as he would like alone time; he asks for his cousins Benvolio for advice but then ignores him. ...read more.

Middle

"Is she a Capulet? O dear account! My life is my foe's debt." Romeo is shocked that Juliet is the Capulet's only daughter, but will still fight for her; even after Tybalt has scene him with Juliet. He also shows genuine love for her when he decides to try and talk to her even when he knows if he is found at the Capulet's home he shall be killed, as Juliet's cousin Tybalt warned him. We sympathize for Romeo as he shows great strength when he resists temptation and does not fight Tybalt because he loves him in a way that he shall never know. This shows that Romeo as a character has more courage and is able mature and show strength by resisting. "But love thee better than thou canst devise, till thou shalt know the reason of my love; And so, good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as mine own, be satisfied." Romeo tries to resist but cannot as he has too much passion for Juliet and out of anger due to his best friend being killed; he kills Tybalt. ...read more.

Conclusion

Romeo gets to Juliet a tad too early and takes the poison just before Juliet wakes up and misses her. "Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, And death's pale flag is not advanced there" Romeo does not know that Juliet is alive and shall be waking up shortly and takes the poison, Juliet now awakens to see her love lying in front of her dead. In conclusion I have more sympathy for Romeo then annoyance as he develops as a character and becomes stronger, mature and decisive. This helps as he is able to take on other people's views as well as his own. Throughout the play FATE had the most control and helped Romeo develop as a young man. "Too much passion can not be controlled Therefore love moderately, long love doth so; too swift arrives as tardy as too slow." As Romeo and Juliet experienced don't love someone with too much passion, too much is not good and will course disaster. Take your time and you will be fine. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
