Transcript of Loss of Innocence in R+J

Loss of Innocence in Romeo and Juliet
Juliet Capulet: Young, Naïve, Pure
In the start of the play, she is oblivious to any sort of posed threats or dangers. Her long-lasting innocence and rebelliousness is a result of her not being able to experience life lessons and the real world first hand.
Juliet Capulet: Young, Naïve, Pure
She also loses innocence when she finds out her husband killed her cousin, Tybalt. Her hope for a perfect marriage is gone as she realizes they are still from rival families which comes in between their secret relationship.
Juliet: Young, Naïive, Pure
Lord Capulet: Protective, Oblivious, Forceful
Since he knew nothing of Romeo and Juliet's relationship he sets her up with Paris and unintentionally forces and threatens her to do as he wishes.
By Sofia Lopez
Loss of innocence is not only a common theme in Romeo and Juliet, but also to fiction, media and
youths today.
The playwright presents characters that have not fully matured as seen in their actions.
She first shows a loss of innocence when she gets married to her family's only rival, Romeo Montague. The same night they decide to get married, she previously admits to her mother that she never thought of marriage and that when the time comes, she wants her parents' consent.
This shows loss of innocence since it is the first time Juliet has gone against her parents and she learns to think for herself.
This shows a great loss of innocence since she was so optimistic and always thought of the good things only until this news. Her hope for a perfect marriage is now gone.
Juliet loses the last bit of innocence she has when she fakes her death after defying her father's wish for her to marry Paris.
Even after saying her father's choice is important, she still goes against it and fakes her death not thinking about its affects.
This represents loss of innocence since she isn't a little girl anymore, getting her father to make decisions for her. She begins to make her own life-changing decisions.
He still thinks of Juliet as a little girl who can do no wrong but he learns that she will grow up sooner or later and won't need him as much anymore.
This shows a loss of innocence since he still expects Juliet to be his little girl and after disobeying him and "killing herself" he realizes she grew up.
Friar Laurence: Idealistic, Holy, Rash
Evidently a holy man, he contributed greatly to both Romeo's and Juliet's deaths.
(i.e. Marrying the two lovers, giving Juliet the potion to fake her death, etc.)
This shows loss of innocence since before Romeo and Juliet's relationship, he was a very holy man that only did what was right. His optimism got the best of him, causing him not to think clearly and do wrong things.
