Romeo And Juliet Mood The mood illustrated in William Shakespeares “Romeo and Juliet” changed drastically from the beginning of the play to the end. This is shown throughout the story through the physical, emotional, and philosophical changes that take place. When Romeo and Juliet met each other, they were so ecstatically in love with each other, but their joy was soon crushed. At the beginning of their love they thought nothing could separate them, but Romeos banishment changed that. The Capulet and Montague families had always believed that hatred towards each other was an indestructible, acceptable thing, however, that soon changed. Both the Capulets and Montagues were emotionally scared by the two teenagers love for one another.
The families felt that hatred was right throughout there history. Emotionally Juliet was tortured from being away from Romeo, Romeo feeling the same way also. First, Romeo is banished to Mantua, then her parents disown her when she refuses to marry Paris. Yet no sooner do they draw apart than they find themselves bound to take notice of the public world and its imperatives, of time calculated in days and hours, of love reduced to very little. Finally, her beloved Nurse betrays her, and Friar Lawrence deserts her in the tomb.
Without meaning to, Romeo has left her alone in the world. She must spend her final moments totally abandoned. As you can see the emotional moods varied throughout the story of the two star crossed lovers. At the beginning of the play, Juliet is in harmony with her family. Their wish that she likes Paris is also her wish, and she has no secrets from them. After she meets Romeo, the two are isolated from the rest of the world.
Even their friends don’t truly understand them any more, but they have each other, and no one, at this point, is seriously threatening them. Juliet starts to physically lose her family and friends after she met Romeo. Nevertheless, we recognize this deeper dramatic sense, which was to shape the maturer tragedies, already in rebellion. Accidents make good incidents, but tragedy determined by them has no meaning. Their families are all hatred and pride and the play contrasts Romeo and Juliet’s love against their families’hate as illustrated by the feud. In the Prologue, we’re told that her love is stronger than the hatred of the feud, but it’s a bitter struggle.
Hatred is strong enough to separate the lovers, kill Mercutio, Tybalt, and Paris, banish Romeo, and finally force Romeo and Juliet to commit suicide. But love is even stronger, nothing can kill the love between Romeo and Juliet, and this finally triumphs. After the tragedy the survivors are shocked into dropping their feud, and Montague and Capulet are united in grief. You can see there was a lack of communication throughout the families and loved ones. Once again, nothing made the enemies except the clash of their own wills, and nothing is needed to make them friends except a change of heart.
Romeo and Juliet is in essence a comedy that turns out tragically. But it is Romeo’s headlong recklessness that leaves Friar Laurence no time to retrieve the mistake.
