  • Romeo And Juliet Live In Darkness
    2,350 words
    In his play, Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare weaves a timeless tale. Although it is over 400 years old, Romeo and Juliet, is as interesting today as it was at its inception and my guess is that its appeal lies in its subject matter. Shakepeare picked a theme that's been known to cause indigestion and sleep loss for centuries. And yet, regardless of the ills associated with it, it remains a topic of worldwide interest. And that is simply, love. My mother says that love is one of the most overused, ...

  • Thin Line Between Love And Hate
    695 words
    "Love" is a juxtaposed emotion that makes life uniquely human. Its ambivalence makes us ecstatic one minute and depressed the next. In Romeo and Juliet's occurrence, it was both ecstatic and depressing. They had an amalgamation between them that would never be destroyed, even through death. Their determination to stay together through the arduous times was astonishing, even when they knew that their relationship would never be normal because of a family feud. They never gave up. It was a case of...

    Romeo was a young man that matured to adult hood. He cherished solitude and night always keeping to the darkness and the night, revealing in sorrow, tears, secrecy, and being alone.

  • Love Story And A Tragedy
    611 words
    Romeo and Juliet: Tragedy, Love Story or Both? Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, is the tale of two lovers who take their lives for each other when their love is hindered by their feuding parents. After reading Romeo and Juliet, apparently a tragedy, I would say that this story contains aspects of both a love story and a tragedy. The tale of two teenagers who fall in love at first sight and then marry, become true lovers and then risk it all for their love cannot surely be all tragedy. Ho...
  • Romeo And Juliet
    332 words
    Romeo and Juliet: Love or Infatuation. This may sound unorthodox, but in my opinion Romeo and Juliet were NOT in love, but instead were infatuated. It seemed that Romeo and Juliet were constantly looking for sex. People in love are patient, and usually good friends. Romeo hardly knew Juliet and they were married in a matter of days. They didn't even think about the consequences of there marriage. Romeo and Juliet didn't think about the consequences and in act 2, scene 3 Romeo says that if he's c...

  • Poor Decisions By Romeo And Juliet
    906 words
    Romeo and Juliet didn't have a choice... or DID they? In the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, choice plays a big part in the dramatic ending. Even though some of the reasons for Romeo and Juliet's deaths are out of their control, I believe that fate, or chance, is not the biggest reason for their deaths. Making choices brings consequences. There is no over-seeing factor that controls these consequences; and while much of the focus of the story is put on fate, what really play...
  • Party Romeo
    387 words
    My English class just finished reading and discussing Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. For the past couple of weeks my class and I have learned quite a bit. Life in the days of Romeo and Juliet was unfair. One example of how unfair life was then is that Romeo was in love with a beautiful girl named Rosalynn but she didn't notice him. He would try to impress her with his wealth by buying her gifts. He would also look deep in her eyes to show that he really cared. Romeo even called her end...

    In this essay I am going to investigate and explore the differences and similarities between the characters Tybalt and Mercutio in the famous love story Romeo and Juliet. Then I will analyse the factors that lead up to their deaths. Tybalt is Juliet's cousin. He is a far cry from Romeo's cousin, Benvolio. He is a fiery young man and a troublemaker. He loves fighting for his own sake. "peace? I hate the word, as I hate hell, all Montague's and thee" Tybalt is almost a caricature of feuding violen...

    Courtly Love Courtly love is a "code of behavior that defined the relationship between aristocratic lovers in Western Europe during the Middle Ages [1200 A.D. to 1300 A.D. ]" (Microsoft Encarta 97). In most cases, courtly love involved "a lady and her lover", the lover usually being a knight or nobleman, and the lady being both married and from a family of equal wealth. William Shakespeare took this form of love (which was still common practice in his generation) and developed Romeo and Juliet. ...
