Thesis: Romeo is a very romantic and suicidal man because he does not care about what happens to him when he goes and find Juliet.
Body Paragraph: Romeo's is in love "Out of her favour, where I am in love. Act 1 Scene 1." He expresses his feeling and told Benvolio. Romeo is going to the Capulet's party to find Rosaline. Thats when he met his beloved Juliet. "Act 1 Scene 4,
[To JULIET] If I profane with my unworthiest hand. This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss. "
Romeo exchanged kisses with Juliet and soon later was pulled by the nurse. That was when Romeo realize she was a daughter of the Capulets. "Act 1 Scene 5 Is she a Capulet? O dear account! my life is my foe's debt."
THESIS: Juliet is a complex character.
To begin with, Juliet is an emotional character. In the story Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare, Juliet is either happy or desperate. For example, on Act 2, Scene 2, Juliet said, " O Romeo, Romeo ! Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name; or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, And no longer be a Capulet." In this quote, it shows that Juliet would do anything to be with Romeo. It really shows how an emotional character she could be.
Romeo is just like Juliet, loving others so easily. For one thing, Romeo doesn't care for others when he knows that his first love is for Rosaline. I think that Romeo can be selfish sometimes. He doesn't think about other people's feelings but only himself and only gives those of his own feelings to Juliet.
Juliet, a character from William's Shakespeare's tragic play, "Romeo and Juliet", is portrayed as a typical teenage girl.
Juliet is at the age where she is bounded by maturity and immaturity. She starts off as a naive girl, she not being able to understand the concept of love, as she tries to fall in love with Paris to please her parents. She fails miserably as she instead decides to marry Romeo, though she is not as careless as Romeo in situations like these. Juliet is not only naive and cautious, she is also shown to be rebellious later on the story.
Thesis: Romeo's habit of falling in love ultimately led to his and Juliet's death.
Elaboration: If Romeo never felled in love with Rosealine and got his heart broken. Then, he'd never had went to the party were he first met Juliet. And he never met her then they both would never have killed themselves
I do believe that what you posted is a great example to show that Romeo is like one of the typical teenage boys who can easily fall for other women easily. I think it would have been better if you included how Romeo would stalk Rosaline and eventually meet Juliet.
Thesis: Romeo is a desperate person.
In the beginning of the play Romeo was heart broken because Rosaline rejected him. But at the dance, Juliet catches his eyes and they fall in love at first sight. Romeo forgets everything about Rosaline and finally moves on. Romeo seems like a desperate person to just fall in love with the next girl that catches his eyes. He would probably be even more depressed if Juliet did what Rosaline did.
Thesis: Juliet is very childish character who tries to act older than she really is.
Claim: Even though Juliet had barely met Romeo, she was already head over heels for him.
Textual Evidence: In act II, scene II, Juliet is on her balcony taking to herself about her love for Romeo. "O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse they name; or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I'll no longer be a capulet." (lines 33-36)
Elaboration: Within the couple of hours Juliet had known Romeo, she had fallen in love with him. She wants to be with Romeo, even marry him before she learns anything about his character. She's foolish because she thinks that she knows what love is when she's only 13, especially under these circumstances.
Thesis: Benvolio is a very cautious character
Claim: Benvolio is curious about Romeo's love life.
Evidence: Act 1 Scene 1 line 199 "tell me in sadness, who is that you love?"
Elaboration: Since Bevolio is Romeo's cousin, he cares about his love life and also. , he naturally has a mantality to act curious and be nosy. Romeo comes to Benvolio sad so it makes Benvolio cruious to ask what the problem was. Romeo thinks he knows all about love and that love is the only thing to live for so Benvolio solves his problem by talking it out.
Thesis: In Shakespeare's ROMEO AND JULIET, Friar Laurence is an ignorant character whose actions results in the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
Claim #1: Friar Laurence agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet only because he hoped it would result in the end of the feud between the Capulets and the Montagues.
Textual Evidence: In Act II, Scene III, Friar Laurence clearly tells Romeo, "In one respect thy assistant be/For this alliance may so happily prove,/To turn your households' rancour to pure love" (lines 90-93).
Elaboration: The Friar didn't even believe that Romeo was in love with the Capulet's only daughter, never mind think of marrying Romeo and Juliet until he thought of the possible outcome that would result from the marriage. He gave his consent without thinking about what Romeo or Juliet's parents would say because he only thought about the best possible result- the end of the feud between the two households. His ignorance to all of the possible consequences results in the marriage that starts a chain reaction that ultimately leads to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
Jaelene my character was also romeo are very emotional and unique teenager. i do admit that Romeos emotions do have dramatic changes. for example how tybalt killed benovillo then out of rage romeo killed tybalt in the rage of the momemt should really think before he does anything
Thesis: Romeo's passion prevented him from acting wisely
Claim :One way Romeo proves himself as unwise is when he sneaked into the garden of his enemy, risking his life just to see Juliet.
Evidence: Romeo see Juliet on her balcony and says," But, soft! What light through younder window breaks?/ It is the east, and Juliet is the sun/.....That thou her maid art far more fair than she."(Act 2, Scene 2).
Elaboration: In this quote Romeo is so focused on Juliet, his new found love, that he forgets that he is in enemy territory.
