  • Romeo And Juliet: Starcrossed Lovers - 854 words
    "Romeo and Juliet:" Star-Crossed Lovers? After reading Shakespeares "Romeo and Juliet" I noticed something that everybody must had noticed: their immaturity. Romeo and Juliet see each other and instantly fall in love. The next day they get married and two days after that they die for each other. I think that nobody is capable of doing such thing for someone you have less than a weeek of knowing. The haste of this play is what shocked me the most. I really dont know what Shakespeare was trying to transmit through it. Maybe he was warning people so they could take decissions more calmly, or maybe he was trying to critizice the youth of that time. What I do know about "Romeo and Juliet" is that ...

  • Midsummer Nights Dream And Romeo And Juliet - 976 words
    Midsummer Nights Dream And Romeo And Juliet Certain parallels can be drawn between William Shakespeare's plays, "A Midsummer Night's Dream", and "Romeo and Juliet". These parallels concern themes and prototypical Shakespearian character types. Both plays have a distinct pair of 'lovers', Hermia and Lysander, and Romeo and Juliet, respectively. Both plays could have also easily been tragedy or comedy with a few simple changes. A tragic play is a play in which one or more characters have a moral flaw that lead to his/her downfall. A comedic play has at least one humorous character, and a successful or happy ending. Comparing these two plays is useful to find how Shakespeare uses similar charac ...

  • Nurse In Romeo And Juliet - 1,510 words
    Nurse In Romeo And Juliet Many of Shakespeares tragedies incorporate some character who is amusing, delightful, and downright comic, injecting into the somberness of the plot line a note of levity. In Romeo and Juliet, this is the character of Juliets nurse. We do not have a name for her, and yet we know much about her, for she is only too happy to tell us everything wed like to know -- sometimes two or three times. Garrulous, simple, and common, she is none-the-less endearing because of her good heart and her deep love for Juliet -- and even more important, she is essential to the development of the story itself. When we first meet her, she and Lady Capulet are looking for Juliet. Lady Capu ...

    Romeo and Juliet Where would the audience perceive the blame to lie for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet? As with many things it is difficult to lay the blame on one specific occurrence as even the slightest mishap, especially in this story, can mount to something far worse than ever expected. The question I am trying to answer is where the audience would perceive the blame to lie and personally I feel the answer to that question lies greatly with who the audience actually is. A modern day audience compared to an Elizabethan one would have vastly different opinions, as would a teenager and his or her parents. Nevertheless, right from the first page in the book it becomes apparent that this st ...

    Romeo And Juliet ROMEO AND JULIET Consumed by Fire - by Scott Walters I hate and I love. Why I do so, perhaps you ask. I know not, but I feel it and I am in torment. Gaius Valerius Catullus Too hot, too hot! William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale For a love story, Romeo and Juliet has more violence and bloodshed than most TV mini-series. The play begins with a riot, ends with a double suicide, and in between has three murders. And all this takes place in the span of four short days. Of course, when you're dealing with love and passion, you're operating on an elemental level. The funny thing is that they have their roots in the same soil. How many times have you seen love turn to hate, and vi ...

    Romeo And Juliet Romeo and Juliet began as an ancient ritualistic tale. It was chanted or spoken in unison by a stage full of monks. When Shakespeare was alive and writing his plays, the church was openly opposed to theatre. Sometimes, it could manage to have theatres shut down merely because they believed it was wrong. The church also disallowed female participation in the theatre. So, in Shakespeare's time, Juliet would have been played by a young boy. Shakespeare used astrological terms in many of his plays. A good example of a astrological term in Romeo and Juliet Is in the Prologue: "star-crossed lovers". The two main characters, Romeo and Juliet both came from different families. That ...

    Romeo And Juliet One of the oldest and most debated questions of all time is whether our lives are governed by fate or by our personal choice. William Shakespeare, in Romeo and Juliet, brings this question to the surface. Although fate seems to control what happens to Romeo and Juliet their choices contribute more to their "fate" than fate itself. Although some reasons that Romeo and Juliet die are out of their control fate is not the largest reason that the lovers end up dying. For example, when Romeo hears of Juliet's death before he is told that it is being faked. Romeo heard of his love's death and rushed to her side to kill himself so he may lye with Juliet. The choice to kill himself i ...

    Romeo And Juliet "Romeo and Juliet is a play about two silly, immature teenagers who lack common sense. Therefore, the play expresses the danger of a love in which two people become the whole world to one another." To what extent do you agree or disagree? The story of Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy. The two lovers go against their families and against their hate to be together but they dont think about the consequences, which in the end are devastating. Romeo and Juliet engage in a love that they believe is the one true love. They dont even know each other and dont know each others personality so they can only be attracted sexually. Instead of taking things slowly and getting to know each oth ...

    Romeo And Juliet The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is the most famous love story ever written. But this love had a fatal flaw, it had to end with death. Now people can argue either way why they died, was it fate of free will. But maybe a more important question is . . . . . .why they had to die? In the death of Romeo and Juliet it's true that free will did have a remarkably small part. The fact that they decided to get married in the first place presented many problems. A chose that Juliet made was to take the sleeping potion given to her by Friar Laurence. It was supposed to make sleep for 42 hour, but it was also going to give the elution that Juliet was dead. Romeo wa ...

    Romeo And Juliet Lovers are often stopped from falling in love, but lovers have faith to help them love each other. In William Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet, two star-crossed lovers are paused from falling in love, due to two family feuds. Fate leads Romeo and Juliet to meet and to die. Romeo and Juliet are fated to meet, although they are from different worlds. For example, when Romeo tells Benvolio of his first love, Benvolio tells him that they will soon be together, but Romeo claims "in that bit you miss. Shell not be hit with Cupids arrow, she hath plans wit" (I, I, 216-217). Rosaline was not meant for Romeo. Their love shared was unreal. Cupid knows that someone else along the way is d ...

    Romeo And Juliet Do you believe in fate? To answer the question, you must first have a correct idea of what fate is. A definition of fate would be the power that is supposed to settle ahead of time how things will happen. Could there be such a power that rules our lives, and if so, why? Romeo and Juliet, the two young lovers in William Shakespeare' s Romeo and Juliet, ended up becoming a large part of what could be called "fate". Fate seemed to control their lives and force them together, becoming a large part of their love, and the ending of their parent's hatred. Fate became the ultimate control power in this play, and plays a large part in modern everyday life, even if we don't recognize ...
