Introduction

Name: Aamena Sidat Centre number: 10406 Date assignment set: Area of study: Romeo and Juliet- William Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet Introduction: Romeo and Juliet is a tragic love story. Shakespeare pinpointed this play with drama and suspense to make you drool. This play will fill your face with tears. This play is full sorrow. Love is the focal point of this play, which studies between the two lovebirds Romeo and Juliet.Romeo and Juliet is an excellent play. This play is set in the 1600s and is written by William Shakespeare. This play symbolises a tragic love story, which two families that are foes and enemies who by chance do not get along, until Romeo meets Juliet and they both fall in love. But things will never be the way where the families do not get a long so they have a plan. A plan that is devious and very untruthful. The couple get married and fake death. But their plan doesn't go to plan. In the beginning of the play it also states the couple will die. William Shakespeare: William Shakespeare was baptized April 26, 1564, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England death April 23, 1616. ...read more.

Middle

This scene is the main point of the play. It is like the climax. It is the time when Juliet confides to the friar, as a result of this, she takes poison. If this scene wasn't in the play then, then everything would be perfect, but it is, which means that Romeo and Juliet would die. In the beginning of the play we are actually told that Romeo and d Juliet would die. But during the play we completely forget that, and think oh what is going to happen next, when near the ending and the lovers are together dying then you remember and understand. Although we are told from the first page the ending of the play. I will be analysing a few points from the film Romeo and Juliet, directed and produced by Lurh Mann. Romeo and Juliet is a film, which was, acted out by Leonardo Dicaprio, and ............... this particular film, which we watched was released at the end of the 19th century. Act 3 scene 5 is an emotional, as well as a happy scene. The scene portrays lady Capulet as being a drunkard. It also portrays Capulet as being cross. Capulet infuriates over the scene where Juliet refuses the marriage proposal to the county Paris. ...read more.

Conclusion

He states that he will disown his daughter Juliet. "How now, how now, chop logic. What is this?" This shows he has control, and wants Juliet to obey him. He starts to become angry at this point. He turns more and more hot and frustrated, just like the nurse had spoken of. Camera angles should be changing to and fro amidst Juliet and Capulet as the conversation is with both them both, faces and also body language should show expressions that the audience can relate to, where they can see what the character is feeling. Juliet should be crying, and Capulet should be red in the face and shouting at Juliet, his expression should be angry, with clenched fists. His fists are clenched because one of Capulet lines whilst shouting at Juliet is that he wants to hit her. Conclusion: This film is a great big tragedy of love. Romeo and Juliet both die side by side. They both loved each other oh so dearly, yet they could not live happily together. (A big fault of both the families.) If only there was no feud. But without this feud and hatred towards both families, there would be no tragic love story. Conclude more...... Aamena Sidat - English coursework - Romeo and Juliet Page 1 ...read more.
