Passion / Haste
Passion: a strong and barely controllable emotion
Romeo and Juliet reflect many different ways that make their characters seem real to us. They show us two young people who fall in love with each other the very first time that they meet. So the question is: How is passion connected to Romeo and Juliet? The play had involved many things that can happen in real life with young lovers today. In Romeo and Juliet the passion that we see is unmistakable and uncontrollable Romeo's first feelings towards Juliet is from the first time he laid eyes on her which is also known to be his first reaction towards her. When Juliet also meets Romeo for the first time she too falls instantly in love with him. The love that these two lovers have for one another causes them to decide to get married, they went too fast in deciding this decision but the feelings that they had for one another led them to get wedded quickly so they can be together "forever".
I like to connect the haste that Juliet and Romeo have for one another to something more personal then what is found on the internet. The feeling of passion, is something that you feel for someone and it is an amazing feeling. You feel light and content and happy. So, how does this connect with Romeo and Juliet? Well, when you feel passionate for someone, you most likely are feeling the following:
- feel good when good things happen
- you feel open and comfortable to talk about things with your significant other
- when things go badly, you want to make things right between each other
- you want a 'forever' with one another and you make plans for the future
- you know everything about your significant other and they know everything about them too
- you consider them your best friend
- you would do anything for them
Romeo and Juliet are very much similar to relationships that happen now a days (not the marriage and killing and brawls), but the passion that they felt for one another can really happen to people, there is more to
Haste: excessive speed or urgency of movement or action; hurry
In the story of Romeo and Juliet, there is haste that is being taken place. For example, Romeo and Juliet move very quickly for just meeting each other. All taken place in about a week, they meet each other, they instantly fall in love and then the next day they decide to get married to each other. Also, their romance didn't last very long because by the end of the week, they are both dead. They moved very quickly into marriage and even Juliet had said that their love was moving quickly, but they vowed that they loved each other dearly and so they got married without even taking time to know one another.
Meet Miranda Dillion, she was living in America (originally from Britian) and was feeling homesick and became tired of meeting regular American men so she added herself to n online dating website (iloveyouraccent.com) and that is when she seen a profile picture of her, now, husband, she instantly fell in love with him (love at first sight - connection with Romeo and Juliet). They decided to meet, Greg (her husband) had to go off to a meeting and when he came back they told each other that they were crazy in love with one another and ten days later they got married.
Romantic Love: relative term, but generally accepted as a definition that distinguishes moments and situations within intimate relationships to an individual as contributing to a significant relationship connection. The addition of drama to relationships of close, deep, and strong love.
