Forced Love
Forced love is when you force someone to love you or to love someone else.
Love at first sight

Beauty too
rich
for use, for
earth
too
dear
!(act I, scene iv, 45-48)
Unconditional Love
Unrequited Love
"
Love
is a
smoke
raised with the
fume of sighs
;
Being
purged
, a fire
sparkling
in lovers' eyes;
Being

vexed
, a sea
nourished with loving tears
.
What is it else? A
madness
most
discreet
,
A choking gall, and a preserving sweet.
Farewell, my coz." Romeo,
Maternal Love
"I must another way,
To fetch a ladder, by the which your love
Must climb a bird's nest soon when its dark." (2.5.9)

Here, the nurse is literally talking about getting a ladder for Romeo to climb up so he can spend the night in Juliet's bedroom. But as always the Nurse is implying something dirty—To "climb a bird's nest" is also slang for having sex. This shows that the nurse and Juliet have a joking and teasing relationship.

This love is earned = Juliet is Obedient
Thou wast the
prettiest babe
that e'er I nursed:
An I might live to see thee married once,
Go, girl, seek
happy
nights to happy days.
Aims for Happiness of Juliet
NOT
Earned
Depicted in Books
Romeo says that unrequited love is a frustrating force that can't be reckoned with. He strongly believes that he is in love with Rosaline and sulks about how she doesn't love him back. Still as we all know he is quick to forget about her and falls in love with Juliet.
I think you are
happy
in this second match,
For it excels your first: or if it did not,
Nay,
gentle
Romeo, we must have you dance.
Romeo
You are a lover. Borrow Cupid’s wings
And
soar
with them
above a common bound
.

till now? forswear it, sight! / For I
ne'er
saw

beauty till this night" (1.5.52-53)
Associated with beauty
Act 1
Usually Between Two Individuals
Capulet forces Juliet into going to church to marry Count Paris
Love is connected with looks
Love?/Lust?
clouded with thoughts of money
"Life were
better
ended by their hate, / Than death prorogued,
wanting
of
thy love
" (2.2.77-78).
no love involved
Juliet
Romeo
no chance to retaliate
Act 2
Romeo rather have her love and die on the spot. Than not have her love and die later.
A strong need for Love
Insulted for disobedience
no way out
confused of disobedience
"Thy dear love sworn but hollow perjury, / Killing that love which thou hast vow'd to cherish" (3.3.128-129)
Love is About Responsibility
If Romeo Dies, Juliet would be in grief
Lust
marriage
How now, how now,

! What is this?
'
Proud
,' and
'I thank you
,' and
'I thank you not
;'
And yet '
not proud
,'
mistress minion
, you,
Thank me no thankings, nor, proud me no prouds
But
fettle your fine joints 'gainst Thursday next
,
To go with Paris to Saint Peter's Church,
Or I will
drag
thee on a
hurdle thither
.
Out, you
green-sickness carrion
! out, you
baggage
!
You
tallow-face!
Themes of Love
Speak not, reply not, do not answer me
no comeback
Romeo's reaction to Juliet:
"O, she doth teach the
torches
to
burn
bright! "
So "hot" that torches ignite
It seems she hangs upon the
cheek
of
night

As a rich
jewel
in an
Ethiop's ear
-
compares Juliet's beauty with a jewel
Her beauty surpasses human boundaries
