Romeo and Juliet: Disaster, Romance or Both?Romeo and Juliet: disaster, Love Story or Both? Shakespeare’s tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, is the tale of 2 fans who take their lives for each other when their love is impeded by their feuding parents. After reading Romeo and Juliet, obviously a catastrophe, I would say that this story includes elements of both a love story and a disaster. The tale of 2 teenagers who fall in love at very first sight and after that marry, end up being true lovers and then risk all of it for their love can not undoubtedly be all catastrophe. However, it is a disaster, and has been called that for years. I will go over with you what makes this story a disaster, and then what makes it a romance. To begin, the household Montague and the family Capulet had been secured a fight for years, even so that their servants battled on the street. This is the tragedy that triggers the train of other miseries, and if these conflicts were solved, none of the more things I will point out would have occurred. The catastrophe of Romeo’s love for Rosalind, she too was a Capulet, and so that barred his love for her, although she likewise did not enjoy him. Quite obviously, the bad luck of Romeo and Juliet’s prohibited
love. This is the basis of the whole story. For 2 people to like each other and not be able to show their true sensations for each other is eventually very discouraging. It’s”Guess Who’s Coming To Supper “style. The tragedy of Tybalt’s death. Another outcome of the family fight, this was a disaster for all included, the Capulets and the Montagues, due to the fact that Romeo was banished from Verona. The blight of the messenger not getting to Romeo in time. Romeo just missing Juliet awakening is certainly a catastrophe.
To me this is one of the most discouraging things in the play, because if he just waited two minutes longer … And lastly, the death of Juliet. It is unfortunate that she felt she needed to take her own life to be with the one she genuinely liked. The first thing in this story which makes me say that it is a love story is the falling in love of Romeo and Juliet. Some individuals say they do not believe in love at first sight, but when reading this scene anybody would discover it hard not to believe in this. The disobeying of their parents desires is the start of the romance, and the veranda scene in act 2, scene 2 suffices to make anybody’s heart melt. Another thing which contributes to the love story is the marriage of Romeo and Juliet. Marital relationship is a big commitment, (’till death do us part, believe it or not they suggested it in those days, not like us today [’till divorce do us part] and to love somebody so much that you would wish to wed them is surely part of a love story. Last but not least, to take your own life for your spouse or wife is certainly an indication of true
love. To enjoy each other enough that you would dedicate suicide just to be with them after death to me is the ultimate dedication. So there you go. I am sure you can see that the catastrophes do dominate the elements of the love story, however by no methods does this mean that they are not there. The world might call it a catastrophe, however I would state that it is both.
