Romeo and Juliet



In Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare creates a world of violence and generational conflict in which two young people fall in love and die because of that love The story is rather extraordinary in that the normal problems faced by young lovers are here so very large It is not simply that the families of Romeo and Juliet disapprove of the lover s affection for each other rather, the Montagues and the Capulets are on opposite sides in a blood feud and are trying to kill each other on the streets of Verona Every time a member of one of the two families dies in the fight, his relatives demand the blood of his killer Because of the feud, if Romeo is discovered with Juliet by her family, he will be killed Once Romeo is banished, the only way that Juliet can avoid being married to someone else is to take a potion that apparently kills her, so that she is burried with the bodies of her slain relatives In this violent, death filled world, the movement of the story from love at first sight to the union of the lovers in death seems almost inevitable.What is so striking about this play is that despite its extraordinary setting one perhaps reflecting Elizabethan attitudes about hot blooded Italians , it has become the quintessential story of young love Because most young lovers feel that they have to overcome giant obstacles in order to be together, because they feel that they would rather die than be kept apart, and especially because the language Shakespeare gives his young lovers is so exquisite, allowing them to say to each other just what we would all say to a lover if we only knew how, it is easy to respond to this play as if it were about all young lovers rather than about a particular couple in a very unusual world When the play was rewritten in the eighteen century as The History and Fall of Caius Marius, the violent setting became that of a particularly discordant period in classical Rome when Leonard Berstein rewrote the play as West Side Story, he chose the violent world of New York street gangs Free Download Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare For Kindle ePUB or eBook – e17streets4all.co.ukRomeo and Juliet

    I m not sure what annoys methe play that elevated a story about two teenagers meeting at a ball and instantly falling in love then deciding to get married after knowing each other for one night into the most well known love story of all time, or the middle schools that feed this to kids of the same age group as the main characters to support their angst filled heads with the idea that yes, they really are in love with that guy girl they met five minutes ago, and no one can stop them, e I m not sure what annoys methe play that elevated a story about two teenagers meeting at a ball and instantly falling in love then deciding to get married after knowing each other for one night into the most well known love story of all time, or the middle schools that feed this to kids of the same age group as the main characters to support their angst filled heads with the idea that yes, they really are in love with that guy girl they met five minutes ago, and no one can stop them, especially not their meddling parents Keep in mind that Juliet was THIRTEEN YEARS OLD Her father states she hath not yet seen the change of fourteen years in 1.2.9 Even in Shakespeare s England, most women were at least 21 before they married and had children It s not clear how old Romeo is, but either he s also a stupid little kid who needs to be slapped, or he s a child molester, and neither one is a good thing.When I was in middle school ...

    Two things struck me during this re reading 1 From the first scene of the play, the sexual puns are drenched in metaphorical violence drawing your weapon, laying knife aboard, forcing women to the wall, etc , creating a stark contrast with the purity of Romeo and Juliet s love and language, and 2 Mercutio, the Nurse and Old Capulet are something totally new both in Shakespeare and also in English drama, that is, characters who are not only realistic but whose language completely reflects th Two things struck me during this re reading 1 From the first scene of the play, the sexual puns a...

    The people who dislike this play are the ones who view common sense over being rational, and prefer to view the world in a structured way One of the main arguments that come across is the meeting, falling in love, and dying all in a weekend when Juliet is but 13 We all must die in the end, so wouldn t you want to in the name of love than of an awful disease Perhaps the two lovers weren t truly in love, but their last living moments were spent believing so, so what does it matter How can on The people who dislike this play are the ones who...
