The Taste for Death in Shakespeare's Heroes "In Sophocles, Haemon killed himself at the tomb of Antigone, as does Romeo in the tomb of Juliet; but Sophocles does not show us this scene of love and death; gloomy vaults do not accord with ideas of love and marriage in Greek art. But in Romeo's case, on the contrary, the horror redoubles his ardour; he feels more impassioned, more enthusiastic, more loving, if I may dare to say so, not merely because this is the last time that he will contemplate Juliet's beauties, but because — am I deceived?

Romeo and Juliet Summary and Analysis of Act 5
Overcome with anguish that she loves a Montague, Juliet follows her nurse from the hall. Romeo sees Juliet and forgets Rosaline entirely; Juliet meets Romeo and falls just as deeply in love.

In this way, their love becomes associated with the purity and passion of the divine. But there is another side to this association of personal love and religion. In using religious language to describe their burgeoning feelings for each other, Romeo and Juliet tiptoe on the edge of blasphemy.

Romeo compares Juliet to an image of a saint that should be revered, a role that Juliet is willing to play. Here it is also shown to have some conflict, at least theologically, with religion.
