Romeo & Juliet Essay Outline 6. Smoking damages the body. 2 thesis corrections -Smoking a pack of cigarettes a day prohibits the human body to function regularly. 3. The thesis of this paper is that it is difficult to solve our environmental problems -Solving our environmental problems is more of a challenge than multiple environmentalists believe. 2. Topic sentence: To begin with, Romeo expresses multiple emotions that reveals he endures suffering like a tragic figure does. 3. Romeo is depressed and weak in act 1 scene 1 beacuse Rosaline rejected his love (lines 157-163) 4. Furthermore, Romeo represents a mighty figure in the story due to his relations with his rich father and the crowd of friends he dwells with. 5. In act 1 scene 2, lines 85-100, Romeo accepts Benvolio's request/suggestion of going to the Capulet ball to see other beauties besides Rosaline. This shows that Romeo attends the most royal parties. 6. Moreover, Romeo'S ACTIONS AND SPEECHES THAT ARE BASED ON HIS NEVER ENDING LOVE FOR JULIET ENNOBLES AND ENLARGES US. 7. IN ACT 5, SCENE 1, LINES 34-86, ROMEO SAYS HE WILL BE RESTING WITH JULIET TONIGHT AND PERSUADES AN APOCRETHY TO SELL HIM POISON WHICH ROMEO REFERS TO BEING GOOD FOR THE HEART. THESE PROCEDURES ROMEO HAS UNDER GONE FOR JULIET DISPLAYS HE LOVES HER MORE THAN ANYTHING AND WILL DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO BE WITH HER, IN THIS CASE IT WOULD BE SACRIFICING HIS LIFE. This ennobles/moves us because romeo's actions describe how we can be as loving and sacrificing like him if we loved our "other half" like he does. 8. Overall, Romeo carries the certain aspects of being a tragic character throughout this mournful love story. In act 3 scene 3 lines 17-23, romeo says "there is no world without Verona walls, But purgatory, torture, hell itself. Hence banished is banish'd from the world, And world's exile is death. Then "banishment", Is death misterm'd. Calling death "banishment", thou cuttst my head off with a golden axe and smilest upon the stroke that murders me. In this quote, Romeo is experiencing suffering from being exiled from Verona, which means he will have to leave his new love, Juliet. His suffering is so unbearable he says he would rather die.
In act 5 scene 1, lines 34-40, Romeo says "well,Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight. Let's see for means. O mischief, thou art swift to enter in the thoughts of desparate men. I do remember an apothecry,and hearabouts he dwells,which late I noted in tattered weeds, with overwhelming brows,culling of simples. Meager were his looks". In this quote, Romeo is basically saying he is going to join juliet in death tonight and the way he is going to do that is by buying poison from an apothecry. This shows how bad he is suffering from the news that Juliet is dead. He doesn't even think rationally of his actions he just jumps straight to one conclusion: death. Another action romeo commits that moves us is in act 3 scene 1 lines 115-1221 romeo says " Alive in triumph, and Mercutio slain? Away to heaven respective lenity, and fire-eyed fury be my conduct now!! Now, Tybalt, take the "villain" back again that late thou gavest me, fro Mercutio's soul is but a little way above our heads, staying for thine to keep him company. Either thou or I, or both, must go with him." In this quote, romeo is upset that Tybalt has killed mercutio and challenges him to a fight to the death match. This moves us beacuse romeo is taking revenge for mercutio and is going to kill tybalt. This shows how a friend really sticks up for another friend. Another example of Romeo being a mighty figure is in act 5 scene 3 lines 299-302, where Montague says" for i will raise her staatue in pure gold, tha whiles Verona by that name is known, there shall be no figure at such rate be set as that of true and faithful juliet". In this quote, you can see that Romeo is from a rich and well known family. This also means that he is from royalty. William Shakespeare has written some of the most tragic stories in his time. A perfect example would be Romeo and Juliet, a true love tragedy. Throughout this forlorn love story, Shakespeare displays characteristics of tragic figures. For instance, Romeo expresses attributes of a tragic figure by enduring uncommon suffering, being a mighty figure, and ennobling us through his actions and discussions with other characters. Introduction(thesis) He experienced extreme suffering, is a mighty figure, and he ennobles us through his encounters and conversations with other characters in the story. As you can see, Romeo has given up everything to be with a girl he just met six days ago. This goes to show that love at first sigh does exist.
