    Excerpt: ... e famous balcony scene follows shortly after the masquerade, depicting Romeo sneaking into the garden of his familys greatest enemy and risking his life simply to catch but of glance of his newfound love. Juliet is likewise already fantasizing about her new love interest with an ardent and yearning fervor: O Romeo, Romeo,/ wherefore art thou Romeo?/ Deny thy father and refuse thy name,/ Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,/ And Ill no longer be a Capulet (II:I:74-78). While showcasing the passionate nature of each character, such actions also exemplify the intoxicating nature of love, and its ability to induce impulsiveness. Although the masquerade party and their first encounter ended only hours ago, both youths are hopelessly overcome by their passions and seek to satiate their desires through outlandish thoughts and actions. Finally, the final scene in the Capulet tomb shows the violent and overpowering nature of love and the chaos it is capable of creating. When Romeo assumes 6 Juliet ...

For the more any one, through pride, refuses to bear it, the more heavily shall it press upon him unto damnation at the judgment. . . . Who does not know that kings and leaders are sprung from those who-ignorant of God-by pride, plunder, perfidy, murders-in a word by almost every crime, the devil, who is the prince of this world, urging them on as it were-have striven with blind cupidity and intolerable presumption to dominate over their equals; namely, over men?
