“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” That quote spoken is a classic line that depicts how we should think. A name is just a name, nothing more. If a rose went by any other name, we would still love it by its smell or beauty. That is a prime example of Romeo and Juliet’s relationship in Shakespeare’s screenplay “The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.”
Spoken by Juliet, the quote explains an intense connection between her and Romeo. The name Capulet and Montague tagged onto the end of their names meant nothing to them. Those words had no affect on how each felt about the other. From their first kiss on their first meeting to the dreadful day that both gave their lives for the other, Romeo and Juliet craved each other’s affection. They put everything they had on the line just to be together. With Romeo asking for Juliet’s hand in marriage and Juliet taking the vile from Friar Lawrence, nothing could and would keep them apart.
“With love’s light wings did I o’er-perch these walls, for stony limits cannot hold love out,” is another exquisite example of the connection between the pair of star-crossed lovers. This time spoken by Romeo, the quote portrays the feeling of needing to be with someone and not letting any obstacle come in your way. Both, Romeo and Juliet, proved to each other that the feeling portrayed in that quote is within the two of them. Juliet, who lied to her parents when she told them she was going to confession. Then Romeo, when he showed up at Juliet’s balcony even though he shouldn’t be in Verona. The feelings that Romeo and Juliet shared couldn’t be described as anything else. It was simply love.
