Abstract: Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (1595/96) depicts the forbidden love of two young individuals Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. Though many focus on the hardships they endure, a relationship briefly touched on is that of Romeo and his best friend Mercutio. He is a very unique character to the play, constantly speaking against Romeo’s actions of love and flamboyantly expressing his own opinions on the matter, bringing some scholars to suspect an underlying theme of homoeroticism.
