The Use of Oppositions to Create Conflict in Romeo and Juliet, a Play by William Shakespeare

“For stony limits cannot hold out love”- William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Barriers cannot hold back love, people will do whatever it takes to be with the love of the life. In Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet he uses oppositions to create conflict. He uses many oppositions such as love and hate, life and death, and light and dark. These create such major conflicts that it leads to a pair of star crosse star crossed lovers killing themselves. Shakespeare shows that oppositions push people to their limits. Shakespeare weaves oppositions between love and hate throughout the play to tragic conflicts that result from characters hitting the play , love and hate create the most conflicts. Shakespeare states from the beginning that Juliet and Romeo are “A pair of s are “A pair of star crossed lovers” crossed lovers” who limits are reached, this leads to the two lovers taking theirs own lives. Fate will not allow these lovers to be together, which pushes Romeo and Juliet over the edge resulting in their death. After the first brawl between the Montagues and Capulets Romeo is talking to .”

The fight was a result of hate, but more a result of love in Romeo’s opinion. The fighting also limits the families from making peace. Romeo has fallen deeply in love with a woman who has om my only hate” Juliet has fallen t deeply in love with Romeo, who comes from her family rival. The love she has for him is limited by the hate between the families The power of love drives people to take their own lives; just so they don’t have to live alone in the world without the person they love. The next pair of contrasts Shakespeare Includes in Rome th. After Romeo has been banished from uponor coner explains that she doesn’t want to live if being with Romeo is not permitted: “Be not so long to speak. I long to die.”. This restricts Juliet from being able to be with Romeo more than before . Her life wouldn’t be complete w ut Romeo and she would go to the extent of killing herself if she can’t be with him. Juliet has taken a potion to make it appear as if she is dead, everyone besides Friar Lawrence and the Nurse thinks she has died. Paris, who is also in love with Juliet, says to Romeo “O, I am slain! If thou be merciful, Open then the tomb; lay me with Juliet.” Paris loves Juliet and wants to be with kill him and lay him in the tomb with Juliet. her even after death. He wants Romeo to Romeo kills Paris and goes to Juliet’s grave. Romeo also thinks that Juliet has died.

Romeo’s final words show his declaration to join his love. He declares: “Thus with a kiss die.”. The love these cha th each other push them to their limits, this shows us the extent people will go to, to be with the one they love. The opposition of dark and light is used create conflicts because it is about Romeo and Juliet’s love. How their love is the light in the dark, cruel world. An example it is used is that Romeo describes that “Juliet is the sun” Her beauty is angelic and as bright as the sun. Romeo and Juliet have a very strong love for each other; their love is compare to light shining in the dark. While the two families rivalry would be the darkness, the love is the light: “cut in little stars”  Their love is represented by stars, and the family’s hatred for each other is represented by the darkness surrounding the stars. Their love is very strong, but this is not enough to keep the Capulets and Montagues at peace. Since the family’s don’t accept Juliet and Romeo’s love it leads to their deaths: “A glooming peace this morning with it brings The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head” The light in their love was not enough to overpower the darkness of the family rivalry. The light of their love is suffocated by the darkness surrounding it, forcing the star crossed lover to their Shakespeare exploits contrasts to create conflicts in this tragedy. He shows us the power of love and hate and what they can drive people to do. The love between Romeo and Juliet is also not enough to overpower the family’s rivalry and make peace. These oppositions drive the pair of star crossed lovers to kill themselves.
