Transcript of Copy of Haste and Impulsiveness in Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet Haste and Impulsive Actions In Romeo and Juliet, the two titular characters set themselves up for tragedy because their love is as hasty and impulsive as their own natures; their love becomes the most important thing to them and thus leads to their demise. Analysis She proposes to him, saying that if truly loves and if he's not using her, then he should send her a time and date. Thesis : Act I Act II Act III Act IV Act V Juliet
Thou and my bosom henceforth shall be twain.
I’ll to the friar to know his remedy.
If all else fail, myself have power to die. Scene v Romeo
Come, bitter conduct, come, unsavoury guide.
Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on
The dashing rocks thy seasick, weary bark.
Here’s to my love! (drinks the poison) O true apothecary,
Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die. Analysis Analysis Juliet grows both impulsive and independent, yet she is still considered dependent on her family and Nurse. It also shows how through their haste in this love, they have effectively cut themselves from their families. Analysis Romeo
The measure done, I’ll watch her place of stand,
And, touching hers, make blessèd my rude hand.
Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight!
For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night. Scene v Juliet
Three words, dear Romeo, and good night indeed.
If that thy bent of love be honorable,
Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow Scene ii They both exchange confessions of love, and she tells him to send her word-- they would be getting married after just meeting. Analysis Friar Lawrence
Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here!
Is Rosaline, whom thou didst love so dear,
So soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies
Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes. Scene iii Analysis The Friar is the sensible one in the situation; he sees that Romeo is being too hasty with this love, and that he had claimed to love Rosaline just as dearly. He accuses Romeo of loving with his eyes, and not his heart, meaning that it is only physical attraction. Juliet wants to find a way to be with Romeo, and she accepts the Friar's mixture without a second thought. Juliet
Give me, give me! O, tell not me of fear! Analysis Just like their love, Juliet wants it, and takes it, without another thought, showing the risks she is taking. the end (I don't know, I just thought it was cute) Romeo makes hasty decisions with love. At the first sight of Juliet, he wonders if he had ever /truly/ loved until now and on the spot, he falls in love with her, not even knowing she was a Capulet. Romeo drinks the poison, and then dies after one last kiss from Juliet. Poison would kill him right away, just like their impulsive love. Their love is comparable to a poison really. Romeo
Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight.
Let’s see for means. O mischief, thou art swift
To enter in the thoughts of desperate men!
I do remember an apothecary— Scene iii Analysis Scene i Their love had been doomed from the start, and now Romeo finds he has to face his end. He feels that without Juliet, he has nothing, and he is now filled with desperate thoughts to escape this life, now unlivable life. Scene i Analysis Juliet
Yea, noise,then I’ll be brief;
O, happy dagger!
This is thy sheath; there rest, and let me die. Hearing noise outside, Juliet feels rushed, and stabs herself, thus killing herself just as effectively. Scene iii Analysis a project by Mayisha Khan
