Transcript: Plot Summary Young Love/Innocence You're a slut <3 Love you too. In Romeo and Juliet, Individuals struggle mostly with society in regards to the namesake characters. Society believes that they should follow their parents wishes for marriage but they believe that they should marry who they love. Romeo and Juliet Figurative Language/Metaphors TM Individual Versus Society The most obvious, if not most commonly explored, theme is the theme of love. Romeo Montague at first is in love with a Rosaline, who doesn't have any interest in him. However, at a party he "falls in love at first sight" with Juliet Capulet, who he later finds out is the daughter of his parent's enemy. Over the course of the play, from Sunday to Thursday, they fall in love, get married, and, in the fires of the worsening war of their families, commit suicide when they think the other is dead. They would rather be dead that alive alone. What the real argument here is whether they were just lustful and infatuated and these hormones/emotions were the cause of their suicide, or whether they truly understood love, which is why it prevailed (to a certain extent) in the face of the rivalries. Another brawl breaks out between the servants of the feuding noble families of Capulet and Montague. Prince Escalus attempts to prevent any further conflicts between the families by decreeing death for anyone who disturbs the peace. Romeo, the son of Montague, confides that he is in love with Rosaline, a woman who does not return his affections. Paris seeks Juliet’s hand in marriage. Romeo agrees to go with Benvolio to the feast, but only because Rosaline will be there. Romeo sees Juliet from a distance and instantly falls in love with her; he forgets about Rosaline completely. Romeo and Juliet find out that they are fro feuding families and become upset Romeo leaps over the orchard wall into the garden, they exchange vows of love. The next morning, Romeo and Juliet meet at Friar Lawrence’s cell and are married. The next day, Benvolio and Mercutio encounter Tybalt. Tybalt stabs Mercutio under Romeo’s arm, and Mercutio dies. Romeo, in a rage, kills Tybalt. Prince declares him forever banished from Verona. Lord Montague tells Juliet that she will be married tomorrow. That night, Juliet drinks the potion (makes her appear dead) and the Nurse discovers her. The Capulets grieve, and Juliet is entombed according to plan. Friar Lawrence’s message explaining the plan to Romeo never reaches Mantua. Romeo learns only of Juliet’s death and decides to kill himself rather than live without her. He buys a vial of poison from a reluctant Apothecary. Outside the Capulet crypt, Romeo comes upon Paris. They fight, and Romeo kills Paris. Romeo drinks the potion and dies. Friar Lawrence enters and realizes that Romeo has killed Paris and himself. Juliet awakes and realizes Romeo has killed himself with poison. She stabs herself. Seeing their children’s bodies, Capulet and Montague agree to end their long-standing feud and to raise gold statues of their children side-by-side in a newly peaceful Verona. Mostly present in monologues, Romeo especially uses hyperbole (exaggeration), metaphors to describe his love, and similes to make comparasons.

He immediately falls in love with her. Tybalt overhears Romeo talking to a servingman and recognizes him as Romeo Montague by his voice.

Romeo, hiding below her, surprises her by interupting and telling Juliet that he loves her. Juliet warns Romeo that his protestations of love had better be real ones, since she has fallen in love with him and does not want to be hurt. Romeo swears by himself that he loves her, and Juliet tells him that she wishes she could give him her love again. Romeo quickly tells Friar Laurence that he has fallen inlove with Juliet Capulet.
