시간과 욕망의 비극: 『로미오와 줄리엣』
The Tragedy of Time and Desire: Romeo and Juliet
This paper is to examine the relationship between time and desire in Romeo and Juliet. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare tries to prove the belief true that "love is not time"s fool", by dramatizing the heroic vision of romantic love against the hostility of time. From the start Fortune and stars are blamed for the lovers" tragedy, but their malign influence is incorporate in the more palpable hostility of time. At first fateful meeting, lovers are filled with a tragic knowledge of death and death"s companion, time. But once lovers are awakened to true desire for each other, they experience their own different order and rhythm of time. The lovers" meetings dissolve time, making it speed up or stop and standstill, as the present moments is transformed into the time of love. Thus, time newly means for them metamorphic principle that makes them advance to the rebirth into a higher stage of existence. Even against "untimely death", They assert that death is a transcendental form of consummation; Romeo wills his death as a means to permanent union with Juliet, and Juliet also makes her death as a heroic act of love"s constancy. But after the consummation of the lovers" death, the drama again proves the belief true that "love is not time"s fool" in secular, earthly sense of immortality, by displacing the lovers" desires onto a perpetual narrative of love. This ending paradoxically suggests that to accept rather than deny time is to prove that our deepest life ultimately craves growth Conclusively, Romeo and Juliet can be viewed as the tragedy of time and desire because it proves that human desire and human identity are essentially related to the metaphysics of time.
