709 words - 3 pages

Every character in every story evolves, they all evolve differently. They are all unique and that’s one of the major reasons why we come to care and love characters from any story or play. Romeo, a main role in “Romeo and Juliet” evolves in a unique way as well; he evolves from love. The emotion like love and a character like Romeo don’t really mix well together. Romeo is a very interesting and naive character to read in “Romeo and Juliet”. He simply lets the emotion of love control him very easily. However, not just making irrational decisions about love, marriage, and death; but Romeo actually ‘evolves’ through the play, and it’s very fascinating to see how his character evolves. He lets his idiotic love affairs take over his life and turns him into another person. Romeo goes from an innocent teenager to a teenager who would do basically anything to be with the person he loves, including suicide. To prove this, I will present ...view middle of the document...


Later on in the play of “Romeo and Juliet”, Romeo instantly forgets about Rosaline and has another love affair with a young girl named Juliet. “Come what sorrow can, it cannot countervail the exchange of joy,” is what Romeo says. Also he says “Do thou but close our hands with holy words, Then love-devouring death do what he dare.” He basically says that sorrow cannot affect him when he looks at her beauty, then he says that he will be okay with dying after marrying her. Again Not even a day has passed, and Romeo already wants to marry Juliet; plus she is a kin from another house. Which makes it even more of an irrational thing to marry her since both houses are in conflict between one another. This proves that Romeo is changing and is really letting love control him with his life.
In the final scene of the play, we notice things have really gotten out of hand. Juliet is being forced to marry a kin of the prince when she is already married to Romeo. When failing to obtain a certain letter, Romeo believes that Juliet is dead when she is actually not just asleep. He says to his friend “I descend into this bed of depth is partly to behold my lady’s face” right before he enters the tomb of Juliet. Furthermore, to make sure his friend doesn't interfere with his plans, he clearly states “By heavens I will tear thee joint by joint, and strew this hungry churchyard with thy limbs.” This quote is the main quote that proves that Romeo evolves through this story. Romeo would literally kill his friend if he had to, just to see his wife’s face one last time. He even kills the man Juliet was supposed to marry moments later.
To summarize everything, the character of Romeo is an interesting one and-+ it changes dramatically with his love affairs. Quickly wanting to get married, making irrational decisions, even wanting to commit suicide just to be with Juliet. The emotion of love is a strong one, it has the power to bring people happiness and serenity. However, it also has the power to destroy people’s lives; which is clearly expressed through the entire play of “Romeo and Juliet”.
