Innocent Victim Of Love Essay

817 words - 4 pages

What is this thing called love? Love is unselfish, understanding and kind, for it sees with its heart and not with its mind. Love is ecstasy and torment, freedom and slavery. Love makes the world go round. In William Shakespeare’s tragic play, “Romeo and Juliet” it is proven that love is the most dominant theme that pushes the two lovers to defy their family and their entire society. Romeo and Juliet secretely marry, and make a rash, irresponsible decision that leads to their tragic deaths.

Romeo’s sudden decision is proven when he says; “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight” (5.1.36). At the same time, Romeo knows that going back to Verona is dangerous and risky for him but he doesn’t care about any of that because the only thing he cares about is the desire to be with the one he loves even in death.
Innocence is easy to kill but hard to regain. Juliet’s love is totally pure and innocent. She has never been in love. Being a 13 year old girl, Juliet strongly believes in love, life and passion. Her fathers support this statement when he exclaims “My child is yet a stranger in the world, She hath not seen the change of fourteen years” (1.5.8.9). Romeo and Juliet are both still young, immature, inexperience, and naïve. However, the unexpected death of Tybalt tarnishes their innocence. To illustrate, Romeo kills Tybalt in order to take revenge for the death of his friend Mercutio. Taken over by anger Romeo starts fight with and kills Tybalt. Thus, he has done the wrong thing for the right reason. Benvolio explains everything to the prince by saying “Tybalt, here slain, whom Romeo’s hand did slay/Romeo, that spoke him fair, bid him bethink” (3.1.151-152)....
