Prevalence[ edit ] In the political philosophy of multiculturalism, ideas are focused on the ways in which societies are either believed to or should, respond to cultural and religious differences. It is often associated with "identity politics", "the politics of difference", and "the politics of recognition".
However, more to the point, Capulet talks quite fondly of Romeo, despite his being a montague, which creates a sense of foreboding for the uniting of the two warring families at the end of the play, yet at the price of the two lovers.
The use of "brags" has connotations with showing off, as if Verona uses Romeo as a prize, which is ironic because Romeo is banished from Verona for killing Tybalt, also despite Capulet saying this about him.
Romeo believes that your family particularly in a time when family, and family honour, were key parts of society will defeat hate. The oxymoron of "brawling love" highlights the inevitable conflict and tension in the play, but also the violence that become increasingly more frequent as the play progresses.
The contrast of "loving hate" suggests powerful, passionate feelings, but also suggests how quickly one emotion can turn into another, which also reflects appropriately on Romeo's violent, impulsive attitude. Like most characters in the play, only violence can redeem his honour.
The repetition of the "f" sound is violent and aggressive, foreshadowing the scene ahead. Much of Shakespear's audience would see this behaviour as the correct, 'masculine' way of behaving.
The personification of "fury" being "fire-eyed" depicts an image of someone not being able to see clearly. Romeo is blinded by fire, something deadly and destructive, and his wish to avenge Mercutio's death is all consuming. Yet again, Romeo has placed his fate in the hands of something else.
The phrase "be my conduct" once again suggests he is not making how own decisions, and implies that he is inconsistent with his behaviour and control. Much like when he referenced "fire eyed fury", the repetition of the "f" sound is violent and aggressive, foreshadowing the acts ahead, yet the sound also allows the words to flow easily, as if he has totally handed himself over to fate and it is turning him into the violent character.
The stress of the sentence falls on "fool" - the audience see Romeo not as a lover, or a vengeful friend, but as a meaningless plaything for Fate. His youth and immaturity is also highlighted through his inconsistent patterns and behaviour throughout the play.
The audience may well begin to question their own destinies - the definitive "I am" suggests that fate is the only thing that controls and individuals destiny. The use of teh pronoun "he" personifies fate. Romeo's destiny is in the hands of a living, thinking being who makes his decisions for him.
Shakespear's audience were more likely to believe in fate than modern audiences. The imagery of life being a boat journey is highly appropriate - like the sea it can be rough, dangerous and entirely unpredictable, and it is possible that Shakespear uses this to subtlt hint at the underlying conflict at the end of the play.
There is also an immature tone to this statement - is Romeo trying to impress Mercutio and his friends? Romeo initially descibes Juliet as a source of light, like a star, against the darkness.
The fact that Romeo explains that Juliet has to "teach" the torches to "burn bright" suggests that she is the being with the most light, as if she is the sun.
As the play progresses, a cloak of interwoven light and dark images is cast around the pair.This is to go alongside my other resource containing just the Romeo and Juliet quotes by themselves, but this resource will be a thourough analysis of each quotation for anyone who wants it.
