Happily ever after-or just a mistake

Romeo and Juliet, what can I say about it love fighting hate confusion all the aspect of Shakespeareans timeless play. This play can never be rewritten. This particular play has survived the test of time and will be spoken acted and read for hundreds of generations to come. From the movie that I have watched in my class I can deduct that this play is very understandable and addicting.

The movie and the play has a wide variety of emotions and each character has been developed to the fullest every second is like watching an action movie with the same style of adrenaline. This movie has captivated me and put me on my toes.

The pure writing style of Shakespeare surprises me as he develops characters by the things that they are saying. Each character is developed and every character is so complicated the moods the expression the dialogue its almost as if I can read what’s in his head. The pure raw vocabulary is marvelous as it not only puts me on constant suspense it gives me a new look on things. The only hard bit in understanding Shakespeare is that you have to read a lot of him. An example would be the balcony scene where Juliet is on the balcony she says one of her most confusing lines “wherefore art thou Romeo” this line personally is very confusing as I thought it meant where is Romeo but what it actually means is why Romeo do you have to be who you are. This line is what Shakespeare is really about confusion.

There are a couple questions though and the main one is the actual play only takes 4 days so has Shakespeare made it so fast to build up the tension or is there any other reason that he has made the time span so short.

Is this play a romance or a tragic romance? Hence I heard that both Romeo and Juliet die at the end so…

I hence leave with thy questions and next time when you see me I hope to have these and many other questions answered

    Nice explanation of some of Shakespeare’s famous quotations. “This line is what Shakespeare is really about confusion.” Didn’t get that part, and also what’s with the hencing? :s
