Theme

People should not kill themselves because of love

Act two Scene two

Juliet is on a tower, and she is waiting for Romeo to arrive, while she is waiting for him she speaks out loud to herself, "O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?....Or, if thou wilt not be but sworn my love, And I'll no longer be a Capulet"(1023, 35-38). Juliet wants to know if Romeo loves her so that she won't be a Capulet. How this is relevant to the theme is because Juliet loves Romeo, and she probably doesn't want to be a Capulet so she can marry Romeo.

Act three, scene three

Later on in the story, Juliet is speaking to the nurse because the nurse wanted to tell Juliet that Romeo killed Tybalt and Romeo got banished, and because of that cause, Juliet was willing to kill herself. "But I, a maid, die maiden-widowed. Come, cords; come, nurse. I'll to my wedding bed; and death, not Romeo, take my maidenhead"(1055, 147-149). Again, Juliet was willing to kill herself because of the pain that she felt because of the things that Romeo did. It grieved her heart so much that she was willing to do that.

Act three scene three

In this scene, Juliet is again speaking to nurse because she went into a very deep depression, and she felt miserable because Romeo being banished and on top of that killing Tybalt. "Romeo is banished"-there is no end, no limit, measure, bound, In that word's death no words can that woe sound"(1055,135-137). In fact, Juliet went into a depression so deep that caused her to want to kill herself, because she had a great love for Romeo.

Act 3, scene 5

"Villian and he be many miles asunder.... And yet no man like he doth grieve my heart....would none but I might venge my cousin's death"(1066, 90-97). Juliet is grieved because she found that Romeo killed Tybalt, and she wanted to avenge her cousin's death, which this leads up to the theme, People should not kill themselves because of love. Just because Juliet loved Romeo doesn't mean she should kill herself because of that.
