Romeo & Juliet.

Extracts from this document...


Romeo & Juliet I am doing an assignment on a play/film called Romeo and Juliet. It is full of love and hate, which is shown from beginning to end. The play is written by a man called William Shakespeare, in 1597. In the play there is a big feud between the Capulet's and the Montague's. The play is mainly about two characters falling in love (Romeo and Juliet) but then discovering their identity; Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet, which means they are suppose to be enemies. All the other characters are also caught up in the feud and are involved in love, hate or both. Different scenes in the play show either love, hate or both. This is most noticeable in the Ballroom scene (Act 1, scene 5), the rest of the play hinges on what happened in this scene. Also my assignment will cover the theme of love, the theme of hate plus the recent Baz Luhrmann Film. ...read more.


Romeo speaks in sonnet forms (a love poem that rhymes). He speaks about Juliet using Metaphor (where he's comparing Juliet with something completely different.) For example: "O she doth teach the torches to burn bright: it seems she hangs upon the cheek of night." Romeo's and Juliet's first meeting (Act 1, Scene 5, Lines 21 - 32, Page 54). Romeo uses 21 metaphors on religion (Religion was pour and true as was their love.) They used 'Lips and Hands' because they wanted to kiss and touch. Juliet still loves Romeo even thou she is suppose to hate him because he's a Montague, for example: "My only love sprung from my only hate." (Act 1, scene t5, page 56, line 6). Another point where she says she still loves him is: "That I must love a loathed enemy." (act 1, scene 5, page 56, line 9) Romeo takes his mask off and Tybalt recognizes him. Tybalt hates to see Romeo at his Capulet's family party, he thinks that Romeo and his friends have come to mock them and Tybalt wanted to kill him. ...read more.


This then affects the fate of Tybalt, Romeo and Juliet. My Conclusion is that, through out the whole play love and hate was in every scene, but more love than hate. My reason for this is because Romeo and Juliet fall in love, but because of the family feud Tybalt causes trouble, that lead deaths. Three deaths where cause by Love, for example Romeo and Juliet. Romeo thought Juliet was really dead so he killed himself to be with her, but when Juliet recovered for taking the poison. She was so upset and heart broken that Romeo was dead she killed herself. The other death of love was over a broken heart, Romeo's Mother (Lady Montague). Other deaths where caused fighting for example Tybalt. Also a love theme ran throughout the play because throughout the whole play Romeo and Juliet, was trying to be with each other, even thou they couldn't because of the feud. Hate gets in the way because of 6 deaths happening, but 2 deaths were over Love. This then ends the feud (at the end of the play). ...read more.
