Romeo and Juliet: Catastrophe, Love Story or Both?Romeo and Juliet: tragedy, Romance or Both? Shakespeare’s tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, is the tale of two lovers who take their lives for each other when their love is hindered by their feuding parents. After checking out Romeo and Juliet, obviously a catastrophe, I would state that this story includes aspects of both a romance and a tragedy. The tale of 2 teens who fall in love at very first sight and after that marry, end up being real enthusiasts and then risk all of it for their love can not surely be all catastrophe. However, it is a disaster, and has been called that for decades. I will talk about with you what makes this story a catastrophe, and then what makes it a romance. To start, the family Montague and the household Capulet had been secured a feud for several years, nevertheless that their servants fought on the street. This is the disaster that triggers the train of other misfortunes, and if these conflicts were resolved, none of the more things I am about to discuss would have taken place. The tragedy of Romeo’s love for Rosalind, she too was a Capulet, and so that barred his love for her, although she also did not like him. Rather certainly, the bad luck of Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden
love. This is the basis of the whole story. For 2 individuals to enjoy each other and not be able to reveal their real feelings for each other is ultimately very frustrating. It’s”Guess Who’s Coming To Supper “design. The catastrophe of Tybalt’s death. Another result of the family fight, this was a catastrophe for all involved, the Capulets and the Montagues, since Romeo was eradicated from Verona. The blight of the messenger not getting to Romeo in time. Romeo simply missing Juliet awakening is definitely a catastrophe.
To me this is among the most aggravating things in the play, because if he simply waited 2 minutes longer … And lastly, the death of Juliet. It is sad that she felt she had to take her own life to be with the one she really loved. The very first thing in this story which makes me state that it is a romance is the falling in love of Romeo and Juliet. Some individuals state they do not think in love at very first sight, but when reading this scene anyone would find it hard not to believe in this. The disobeying of their parents wishes is the beginning of the love story, and the balcony scene in act 2, scene 2 is enough to make anybody’s heart melt. Another thing which adds to the romance is the marriage of Romeo and Juliet. Marital relationship is a huge 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 like somebody a lot that you would wish to wed them is surely part of a romance. Finally, to take your own life for your partner or partner is absolutely an indication of true
love. To like each other enough that you would devote suicide simply to be with them after death to me is the ultimate commitment. So there you go. I am sure you can see that the catastrophes do dominate the aspects of the love story, however by no methods does this mean that they are not there. The world might call it a disaster, but I would say that it is both.
