Shakespeare portrayed many views on love in the romantic tragedy play Romeo & Juliet. Shakespeare presents this idea as a force of nature, so strong that it transcends social conventions. Many of the friendships in the play are as sincere as Romeo and Gullet’s love for each other. Close relationships were formed between Juliet and her nurse, Romeo and Mercuric and Mercuric and Benevolent. In Act 3 Scene 1 Mercuric and Table are caught in an argument,
Mercuric is stubborn and does not want to stop “Men’s eyes were made to see things, so let them watch.
I won’t move to please anybody. ” The love in this act is shown through brotherhood, Romeo and Mercuric love each other like siblings. In the scene of Americium’s death, he holds true to his understanding of love for his kinsmen. His involvement in the ordeal itself springs from his emotions to defend Romeo and his friends. Mercuric challenged Table because his references to the Montage’s undermine their status.
This is evident in the quote “Consort?
What dost thou make us minstrels? ” Mercuric continues to belittle Romeo when it was necessary out of true love. Table however is viewed very differently by Mercuric, in the fight scene Mercuric believes that he is fighting for the honor of the Montage?s and his friends, however his intense emotions for love goes out of control and was therefore wounded by Table out of pure rage. Romeo in turn then kills Table which leads to exile and possible death. It is then that Romeo realizes hat the consequences of his love affair.
Mercuric was right in his predictions the love between Romeo and Juliet resulted in tragedy for both families In this act Romeo nonetheless did not want a quarrel between Mercuric and Table as he didn’t want the feud between the Caplet’s and the Montage’s to grow worse and did not want to see both Table and Mercuric wounded. “Table, the reason that have to love thee. Doth much excuse the appertaining regret such a greeting. Villain am I none. Therefore, farewell. I see thou knows me not. ”
