The tale of two teenagers who fall in love at first sight and then marry, become true lovers and then risk it all for their love cannot surely be all tragedy.

Friar Lawrence only wanted peace between the families, and he also wanted what would bring the most happiness to Romeo and Juliet. Whose voice greets me so sweetly this early in the morning? It's Romeo that annoyed me most, he's 17, right? This shows how his plans are inspired by his desire to be a hero and end the feud rather than being logical. To begin, Shakespeare illustrates social class and elaborates character through descriptions. However, I think he plays Romeo quite convincingly as the waverer and sentimental young man. Throughout the play, Shakespeare uses the Nurse for many purposes but, her main role in the play is as a confidante. Two such opposed kings encamp them still In man as well as herbs, grace and rude will; And where the worser is predominant, Full soon the canker death eats up that plant.
This line is also foreshadowing the predicament Romeo and Juliet get themselves into when Romeo quickly gets revenge for Mercutio's death. The earth that's nature's mother is her tomb; What is her burying grave that is her womb, And from her womb children of divers kind We sucking on her natural bosom find, Many for many virtues excellent, None but for some and yet all different. Two opposing elements, good and evil, reside in both men and herbs. After reading Romeo and Juliet, apparently a tragedy, I would say that this story contains aspects of both a love story and a tragedy. So, well, just imagine junior high school kids hanging out together. Just the same, the Prince of Verona A child is a good role model of innocence and purity.
These two main characters get everyone in their lives involved in their mess and the results end in them taking their own lives. The whole play is in a hurry a speed into marriage, speed into, banishment speed back to Juliet, speed to another quarter to get Juliet married to Paris, speed in another direction to kill whoever steps in the way and speed to commit suicide when life suddenly seems not- worth living. They both end up dead. In fact, a notable piece of work William Shakespeare is best known for is the romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. .

Then Romeo kills Tybalt and is banished but he defies the law to spend the night with Juliet. And from her womb children of divers kind We sucking on her natural bosom find, Many for many virtues excellent, None but for some and yet all different.

A love is proclaimed and defiance against the enmity among their houses ensues when the adolescent children, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, meet. A role model can be just about anyone that influences how another person behaves, reacts, or thinks, in a positive way. Friar Laurence makes a convincing argument that Romeo's love for Juliet could nothing more than a crush. She whom I love now Doth grace for grace and love for love allow. Notice his exaggeration of how hard he worked to bring about the match and how rapidly he starts to threaten disinheritance. But good intentions aren't enough.
