Romeo and Juliet Assignment

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Romeo and Juliet Assignment (Part 1) The play is appealing because it is a mixture of comedy, love, action and tragedy. It has comedy at the Capulet masque; it has love between the Star Crossed Lovers Romeo and Juliet. It has action within the fight scenes and has tragedy at the end. The characters involved within the first scene are the Montague servants (Abram and Balthasar) who are jokers, the Capulet servants (Sampson and Gregory) who take offense to things easily, Benvolio (Romeo's cousin) a peace keeper, Tybalt (Juliet's cousin) who is very hot headed and a hot fiery character, Capulet and Lady Capulet (Juliet's Parents), Lady Capulet does not believe in fighting and tries to stop her husband who is arrogant and aggressive, Montague and Lady Montague (Romeo's Parents), Lady Montague does not believe in fighting and tries to stop her husband who is big headed, The Prince (Officer of the Law), the person who has to decide the course of action when a brawl break out and Romeo (One of the Star crossed Lovers), the son of the Montague's who he does not talk with much. ...read more.

Middle

because of the types of genres that are within the rest of the film i.e. comedy or love, we have not been prepared for that because all we have been prepared for it the violence and how we see that and how the story goes along with all the turns and surprises. In the later part of the film, Romeo's best friend Mercutio is slain by Tybalt because of Tybalt's hatred for Romeo. This happened because of what Tybalt and the others didn't know. Tybalt's aggression is very easily brought out and so it shows at the Capulet masque where Tybalt recognizes Romeo's voice. Romeo and Juliet Assignment (Part 2) The prologue is very dramatic because it starts off with a TV, which channels are being flicked over until the news reporter who tells us about the two households and the star crossed lovers and how they take there own life. This gives us an idea of what is to come. ...read more.

Conclusion

they start talking about the previous brawl and why Romeo is sad, this change in mood gives us an idea of what's to come later in the movie. The change in mood is brought about when Romeos parents ask of where he is and so Benvolio goes to talk to him. I believe that Baz Lurhmann has done what Shakespeare would have wanted if he was still alive to the present day because the film is very entertaining and has the same story line and goes along with what Shakespeare wrote. I believe that the film is not as good as the play because the play can be acted out in many different ways but I don't believe that this was the right way to do because I believe that it wasn't as good as it could of been. They could of added extra things like a better ending to Tybalt life like being stabbed or being impaled and a spike of the fountains or have his car blow up and him die in the explosion. ...read more.
