Characterizations of Romeo

This is a post referring to Romeo's thoughts, feelings, actions


Romeo thinks that Juliet is the most beautiful girl and no one can compare. He thinks she is so beautiful that he refers to her hand as a holy shrine during their first encounter.

"If I profane with my unworthiest hand/This holy shrine, the gentle sin is this.."


Romeo is head over heels for Juliet and he feels a strong passion towards her.


Romeo falls in and out of love very easily, causing him to be overly dramatic. He uses imagery and figurative language to express his feelings.

"Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven,
To twinkle in their spheres till they return." (Scene 2.2)
