Exploring the Love Between Mercutio and Romeo in Romeo and Juliet

This essay covers the second major love in Romeo and Juliet: that of Mercutio and Romeo. The author makes a compelling argument for the presence of philia -- platonic feelings of mutual affection between two individuals -- in this work and uses philosophy and a close reading of the text to support the argument. The argument is both literary and philosophical in nature.
