Romeo and Juliet - Character Summary / Biography

Perfect summaries of the main characters to help you study for your GCSE / English Exam.

Character: Romeo

Short Summary / Biography:

Romeo is the son of Montague and Lady Montague, and is generally thought of as a likeable character due to his intense passion, enthusiasm and idealistic nature.

 However, it can also be said that Romeo is immature, rash and impulsive. At the start of the play, he is heartbroken and depressed over his unrequited love for Rosaline (an unseen character). However, when he sees Juliet at the Capulet house, he falls in love with her immediately (some would suggest that this implies a fickleness on his part as well, but others debate that in fact, he and Juliet are fated to be together).

Marrying Juliet the day after they meet, he is happy, enthusiastic and in love. He is disinterested in violence, unlike other members of the feuding Montague and Capulet families. When Tybalt tries to provoke him, he refuses to fight; it is not until Tybalt kills Mercutio that Romeo then fights for Mercutio's honor. After killing Tybalt, he is forced to flee from Verona and goes to Mantua.

He returns to Verona when Benvolio tells him that Juliet is dead. He is unaware of Juliet's subterfuge in planning to fake her death and goes to her tomb. He kills himself, too agonized by the idea of a life without Juliet.

Many think this demonstrates his true and loyal love for his wife.
