Character Analysis: Romeo

Personality

Romeo of the Movie

Watching the movie, I viewed Romeo as a sincere, loyal, true character. This could have been because of the way the director interpreted the character, and the visual expression and tone of the actor playing Romeo.

Courageous

Strong-willed, Sincere

Romeo of the original play

Reading the actual play, I generally got a negative image of Romeo

Womanly, Sensitive, Helpless

Rash, Impulsive

Introverted, Isolated, He seems to live in his "own world", Day dreaming about love, Not wind up in the feud between the Capulets and Montague, Impractical

Selfish, Inconsiderate, He is too driven by his emotion that at times he forgets the greater suffering his loved ones feel, Irresponsible

Vulnerable, Easily despaired

Cowardly

Insincere: Pretense, He expressed his love towards Juliet through, romantic words, but did he really love her?

Judgmental of physical appearance, Light

Loyal, Friends

Dramatic, Fickle Mood swings, Poetic Language, Romantic, Seductive

Doubtful Love

Did Romeo truly love Juliet?

Commits suicide to be with Juliet, Obligation, Automatic response, Status quo (the way things are), Guilt, Angry at himself

Love for Juliet's physical appearance, Obsession with her beauty, Did Romeo love her for who she was as a person?, What if a woman more beautiful than Juliet came along?, What if Juliet was ugly?

Love at first sight, Falls in love instantly, Impulsive marriage

Instantly assumes that he'll never see Juliet again (banishment from Verona), Gives up, Hopeless, Inconsiderate of Juliet

He first worries about himself

Juliet's Sacrifice vs. Rome's Sacrifice, Juliet, Drinking the potion, Suicide, Defies his father's commands and damages her relation with him., Romeo, Suicide

Fault

How was Romeo responsible for the death of Juliet?

Murdered Tybalt, Capulet hurried the wedding to eradicate Juliet's "grief over Tybalt", Juliet sought Friar Lawrence for a solution, Juliet took the potion, Romeo thought Juliet was dead, Juliet found Romeo dead and committed suicide

Got himself banished, Left Juliet alone to bear most of the hardships and consequences of their secret marriage, Juliet became emotionally unstable

Identity& Relationship

Lover of Juliet

Friend of Mercutio and Benvolio

Relationship with Mercutio, They can't relate to each other easily, but are intimate friends (Opposites)

Relationship with Benvolio, Benvolio gives generous advices, Benvolio tries to ease Romeo's grief, Although Benvolio tries to help Romeo, Romeo finds Benvolio's advices unhelpful, Romeo doesn't deserve Benvolio who tries to be an understanding friend

Heir of the Montagues

Relationship with Lord and Lady Montague, Isolated, Romeo is old enough to take care of himself, Romeo's parents care about him more than he does his parents, Romeo didn't give a thought about his parents when he married Juliet and got himself banished., Lord and Lady Montague are worried about Romeo's "depression" and his wherabouts (Act 1 Scene 1)

Murderer of Tybalt
