    I m not sure what annoys me the 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, especiall [...]

    THIS This is what happens when you jump into a Rebound Relationship.So, when the story opens, Romeo is desperately in love with Rosaline But since she won t give up the booty has sworn to remain chaste, he s all depressed and heartbroken Annoying emo style His friends, tired of his constant whining, give him a Beyonc mixtape He takes her words to heart, and her lyrics begin to mend his broken soul His boys drag his sad ass to a party, and across a crowded room, Romeo spies his next victim, his r [...]

    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 their t [...]

    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 one trul [...]

    Excellent I can t believe I ve waited so long to read this classic play Having only surmised the story of ROMEO AND JULIET and not even seen the movie yet I now know Romeo was a Montague and Juliet a Capulet, two houses at odds I know about the disastrous duels, the secret marriage, the surprise suitor and the botched plan and then there s the fatal ending I even had that wrong, and OMGOSH they were so young I enjoyed actually reading Juliet s melodramatic expressions of love O Romeo Romeo, wher [...]

    Never was a story of woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo The ultimate love story, 400 years old, you may ask why William Shakespeare s narrative , the poetry, a tragic saga drenched in beauty, the words are magical , a reader will be entranced by its imagery , no one could be betterally a long exquisite poem disguised as a play set in the 14th century of the Renaissance, in Verona, Italy during the turbulent age of petty kingdoms , fierce wars and passionate times The short but interesting li [...]

    ReviewAs I looked over my previously read books and searched for one that was missing a review, Romeo and Juliet stood out to me But then I thought about it who doesn t know about this play Who hasn t read it in school sometime in the past Who hasn t watched a movie version or seen some sort of take on the classic tortured romance story And why on earth would anyone care to read another review, let alone my review, on it Exactly So don t look for much here as I m sure most everyone has read it a [...]

    True confessions time I ve read Romeo and Juliet at least once, maybe probably it was in one of my college English courses and mostly thought, great poetry, but GAH silly kids idiotic people I ve seen it on stage once or twice one production cast Romeo s family entirely with black actors and Juliet s family with white ones, to bring the feuding a little closer to home, I guess It was interesting, but still, didn t really move me Though I m sure I teared up during the final scene, but hey, I m e [...]

    In terms of language and style, Romeo and Juliet might possibly be the best of all Shakespeare s work It s crammed full of some of the most beautiful poetry I ve ever had the pleasure of reading But the story of lust filled teens sacrificing themselves because of an extreme burst of instalove Never really been my cup of tea.

    The first time I read Romeo and Juliet my freshman year of high school , I hated it I had always heard it built up as a great love story, a great romance and I didn t see it at all To me, it seemed a pretty pointless story about a couple of idiotic teenagers in lust The ridiculous essays I was forced to compose about it certainly didn t help.My senior year of high school, however, my drama teacher selected it as our spring play I was stage manager, and I was horrified when he told me I pleaded f [...]

    Go wisely and slowly Those who rush stumble and fall William Shakespeare, Romeo and JulietIt is hard to critique Romeo Juliet since it is like family It was the first Shakespeare many of us were introduced to It seems like family But reading Shakespeare this year in rough order, I see as Romeo Juliet follow Richard II, Shakespeare grown large, lyrical, bold, steady, and sharp He has mastered not just drama, but tamed English He has broken poetry to his will He re oriented the stars of what langu [...]

  22. Evelyn (devours and digests words)

    There is nothing romantic about Romeo Juliet If anything, this felt like an intentional mockery to me So if anyone thinks this is categorized as Romance, I will stare at them like they ve lost their heads There have been debates about whether or not Romeo Juliet is a satire I m 101% sure that this is a satirical play in which Shakespeare, the genius bastard, mocked and made fun of hot headed, foolish teenagers The man laughed in the face of insta love lust , and I laughed along with him If he wa [...]

    This great book drama of course I read in a single night Naturally, an English graduate seldom can remain away from Shakespeare and his realm However, even as an individual, before I began my studies seriously, Shakespeare and some of his creations were on the list to be read Romeo and Juliet is a play, to be clear at the beginning Yes, as critics modern ones claim, this is perhaps the most unlikely play which does not synchronise with the reality as others by the same dramatist Nevertheless, le [...]

    O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo Deny thy father refuse thy name, thou art thyself thou not a Montegue, what is Montegue tis nor hand nor foot nor any other part belonging to a man What is in a name That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, So Romeo would were he not Romeo called retain such dear perfection to which he owes without that title, Romeo, Doth thy name And for that name which is no part of thee, take all thyself Shakespeare s template for star crossed [...]

    Who does not know the story of Romeo and Juliet And these immortal lines, O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo But, soft what light through yonder window breaks It is the east, and Juliet is the sun Good night, good night Parting is such sweet sorrow,That I shall say good night till it be morrow The very word Romeo has become synonymous with male lover in English, and the idea of the doomed romantic lovers, whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families, is famous world wide It has [...]
