O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo
Juliet cries this into the night in Act II because she is so torn. "Wherefore" is a way of saying "why," so Juliet is saying, "Romeo, why are you who you are?" This means, why are you the man I fell in love with—and why are you a Montegue, the family my family is at war with?
juliet misses romeo and she feels like no one loves her she feels as if she is alone in this world. i think it represents that luv is a very strong thing as i have learned lately
