Introduction

There are many ways in which Shakespeare has used his resources to develop his best performance, like his characters. In the play Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses his characters Romeo and Juliet as a medium to the tragic results of different types of love. He is able to show the power of love through using different types of love. The play itself is a very dramatic one, needing more than one angle or viewpoint for it to have enough power and diversity to work properly and capture its audience.

The power of the love was the only thing that could stop the ancient grudge (A5s3) "Where be these enemies? Capulet? Montague?"
