Romeo And Juliet

While reading Romeo and Juliet many people suffered and were lonely. People that were suffering were people that were not even the main characters in the play, from the nurse to Friar Lawrence. After reading the story the person I thought suffered the most was Romeo. Juliet suffered to but not as much as Romeo. Romeo is able to be happy for just a few hours before the tragedy happens. Romeo is a Montegue and Juliet is a Capulet making it harder for them to be together. They rather risk there lives to be with each other.

An example of this is on page 777 line 195; Romeo said; " In sadness, cousin , I do love a women. " What Romeo is saying is that he is sad because the girl he loves does not love him back. In this part of the story he is lonely and sad. The women he wants does not want him. He is heart broken and just asking why out of everyone did cupid be so blind to do this to him. Its only the beginning of the story and Romeo is already depressed of what has happened. Luckily he goes to a festival and meets Juliet and falls in love. He is happy for the first time in the book. It is still hard for him because he can be with her only in secret.

In page 822 line 118 is another example of Romeo's sadness. Romeo said; " And fire- eyed fury be my conduct now! " In this line as you see by the words he used he has turned that sadness into anger. He was sad for his loss since Tybalt killed Mercutio who was Romeo's best friend. He saw as Mercutio fought. From this he wants to get revenge for him and goes after Tybalt. During this he kills Tybalt. Tybalt is Juliet's cousin. Since Tybalt was royalty Romeo is banned from Verona and if caught in Verona he will be executed. Him being executed means he wont be able to see Juliet ever again.

The final example of Romeo's suffering is in page 868 line 115. Romeo said; " A dateless bargain to engrossing death! " In this part he is saying his last words to Juliet who is dead. He is telling her how he will die to be with her forever even if it means he has to kill himself. In other words he rather be dead than suffer not being with Juliet.
