This great book drama of course I read in a single night. Naturally, an English graduate seldom can remain away from Shakespeare and his realm.

However, even as an individual, before I began my studies seriously, Shakespeare and some of his creations were on the list 'to be read'.

Romeo and Juliet is a play, to be clear at the beginning. Yes, as critics modern ones claim, this is perhaps the most 'unlikely' play which does not synchronise with the reality as others by the same dramatist.

Nev This great book drama of course I read in a single night. Nevertheless, let's give the 'play' its due - it surely does create that sensation which Shakespeare wanted to.

The ephemeral romance between the 'first sight lovers' and the enemies sworn to suck the blood out of their lives The book has its merits as well as the demerits.

Shakespeare is the vacuum. You can keep your experiments going on I would like to rather appreciate him for his creation this time. I enjoyed reading the play and truly did!

Jun 14, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: classics , plays. The first time I read Romeo and Juliet my freshman year of high school , I hated it.

I had always heard it built up as a great love story, a great romance- and I didn't see it at all. To me, it seemed a pretty pointless story about a couple of idiotic teenagers in lust.

The ridiculous essays I was forced to compose about it certainly didn't help. My senior year of high school, however, my drama teacher selected it as our spring play.

I was stage manager, and I was horrified when he told me. But as I worked through the lines with my actors, and saw the scenes slowly put together, I came to realize the power and the beauty of the play.

Yes, they are somewhat idiotic teenagers in lust: but the sweeping passion of adolescence, with all its power and impatience, is something worth looking at in itself.

Because now, I love it. View all 11 comments. Sep 07, Ian "Marvin" Graye rated it it was amazing Shelves: reviewsstars , reviews , read BRUCE: The midnight gang's assembled And picked a rendezvous for the night Man there's an opera on the turnpike There's a ballet being fought in the alley PRINCE: Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word, By thee, old Capulet, and Montague, Have thrice disturb'd the quiet of our streets, And made Verona's ancient citizens Cast by their grave beseeming ornaments, To wield old partisans, in hands as old, Canker'd with peace, to part your canker'd hate.

Once more, on pain of death, all men depart. Enter Romeo, still love-sick for Rosaline. BRUCE: In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway Italian dream At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines Romeo, still pining for Rosaline, discovers Juliet and becomes newly infatuated.

BRUCE: Together we could break this trap We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back Romeo pleads even harder, now he has learned about his rival, Bruce.

Too early seen unknown, and known too late! Juliet falls for Romeo regardless. That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.

Juliet decides she must confront Bruce and tell him they are not meant to be. JULIET: Bruce, the angels have lost their desire for us I spoke to them just last night and they said they won't set themselves on fire for us anymore Bruce persists, trying to hold onto the memory of their love.

Bruce gives her a small glass bottle of non-prescription drugs. Blue tablets. Juliet takes three tablets immediately.

Romeo looks dashing in his open-necked shirt and film director scarf. Juliet has never seen anything like him.

The love between Romeo and Juliet grows in leaps and bounds. Juliet feels no relief for her headache. She opens the bottle and takes another two tablets.

Tybalt chases them on a motor bike. He crosses suddenly into Romeo's path and clips the front edge of the car. He loses control of his bike and falls to the thundering road.

Romeo can't avoid running over the top of Tybalt and killing him. Still, Romeo rolls his car three times while taking evasive action, and both Romeo and Juliet are knocked unconscious when their heads hit the side door panels.

She realises that her headache has now become extreme. If she can treat her pain, she can try to help Romeo.

She touches her forehead where it hit the inside of the car door and pulls her hand away, covered in blood that still seems to be flowing profusely.

Tears form in her eyes and her eyesight becomes blurry. She reaches into her purse and takes another four tablets, in the hope that it will kill her pain.

She lapses into unconsciousness. Shortly afterwards, Romeo awakes and finds Juliet still beside him. There is blood everywhere and a white froth has descended from her lips and dried on her chin.

Death, that hath suck'd the honey of thy breath, Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty: Thou art not conquer'd; beauty's ensign yet Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, And death's pale flag is not advanced there.

Romeo wipes the froth from her lips and gives her one last kiss. He lifts the left leg of his trousers and pulls out his knife.

Eyes, look your last! Arms, take your last embrace! Come, bitter conduct, come, unsavoury guide!

Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on The dashing rocks thy sea-sick weary bark! Here's to my love! Romeo drags the knife across his throat.

He drops the knife and holds his hand to the artery in his neck. He continues to feel the slow, regular pumping of his heart, until it pumps no more.

Now, Juliet wakes again. Still groggy, she looks over to Romeo. Convinced by the abundance of blood that he has died, she shakes the rest of the tablets in the bottle into her hand and swallows them eagerly.

Thy drugs are quick. Thus with a kiss I die. She kisses Romeo and dies. Bruce lives alone and works his day job, almost like an automaton.

His only salvation is the time he spends in his beat up old Buick. Every night, he drives the streets of Verona, haunted by the love he felt for Juliet and the guilt that it was the pills he gave her that took her life.

Sometimes, through the tears in his eyes, he imagines that he sees her walking down the street, only to lose sight of her as she slips quietly down an alleyway.

BRUCE: You're still in love with all the wonder she brings And every muscle in your body sings as the highway ignites You work nine to five and somehow you survive till the night Hell all day they're busting you up on the outside But tonight you're gonna break on through to the inside And it'll be right, it'll be right, and it'll be tonight And you know she will be waiting there And you'll find her somehow you swear Somewhere tonight you run sad and free Until all you can see is the night.

How can I possibly argue that your lyrics deserve to be on the same page as Shakespeare, unless I shamelessly misappropriate them in the pursuit of parody, pastiche, spoof, send-up or lampoon?

This isn't damning with faint praise. This is no piss-take. This is a full-on homage, a big hurrah, a laud almighty. I say, more kudos to the Boss!

As the literary theorist Linda Hutcheon puts it as quoted by my WikiLawyer , "parody I don't need any more, until you release 50th anniversary editions with bonus disks I don't already have.

Please get your lawyers to spare my humble upload. And if they do come looking for me, they'd better be pretty damned fit, coz tramps like us, baby we were born to run.

This piece of literature is often associated with romanticizing suicide so from that standpoint it was an interesting read for me.

And did I find it romantic? Tragic, most definitely yes. I'm sorry Shakespeare, maybe I'd do better with a more modern translation. Who am I kidding, I'll watch the film!

My first reaction when the read was over is why on earth it took me so long to read this beautiful work of Shakespeare having it physically with me all this while.

Perhaps, I thought I didn't really need to read it since I know the story from the movie adaptations I have watched. How foolish! I had no idea what I had missed for so long.

I have never enjoyed Shakespearean writing as much as I did in this play. It is passionate, lyrical, and humorous. It is amazing that you find all these in a tra My first reaction when the read was over is why on earth it took me so long to read this beautiful work of Shakespeare having it physically with me all this while.

It is amazing that you find all these in a tragedy; only a great master can accomplish that feat. The story is both romantic and tragic, as we well know.

But what is incredible is that the play is a "beautiful" tragedy. This is one of the most outstanding plays that I have read. I loved it. I haven't read many Shakespearean tragedies, only other being King Lear.

And in my mind, no tragedy will outmatch the tragic tale of Romeo and Juliet. It certainly will be my favourite Shakespearean tragedy.

What I thought about this book in middle school: I don't get it. What I thought about this book in high school: This is stupid. What I thought about this book in college: Okay, so two kids meet once, "fall in love", and then commit suicide over each other in just four days?

What I thought about this book after finishing it today, aged Wow. Shakespeare is a GD genius. What I didn't realize until today, after reading it a few times and watching several movie adaptations, is tha What I thought about this book in middle school: I don't get it.

What I didn't realize until today, after reading it a few times and watching several movie adaptations, is that this story isn't about young, stupid love at all.

First of all, these characters are people I know. Romeo is my friend Mike, Juliet is my friend Jess, the nurse is my mom telling her embarrassing stories all the time, and Mercutio is my friend Chris.

Chris "that's what she said" Chris. Yes, love is in there. But what I saw when reading it again this time is that everyone has their own ideas of what love is.

Romeo and Juliet are in passionate, crazy, how-you-feel-about-someone-the-first-few-weeks-of-a-relationship love. The nurse has a more practical idea of love.

Juliet's mom thinks love is based on what you can get from someone. Juliet's father thinks love is being obedient.

Mercutio thinks love is only a means to a sexual end. Paris thinks love is something you can earn or demand from someone. But much more than love, this story is about life.

It is about the people in our lives, how we deal with them, how they each have their own agenda without knowing or even caring about anyone else's agenda, how life fucks around with us and knocks us down, and how your destiny will hunt you and get what it wants from you no matter how you try to avoid it.

Romeo describes Juliet as the sun, and Juliet describes Romeo as stars. They see each other as sources of light. But they must sneak around to see each other, and can therefore only meet up at night when it is dark.

In order for them to see each other's light, there must be some darkness. Damn it, Shakespeare. The bottom line is that Romeo and Juliet is now my second favorite Shakespeare play, just behind Hamlet.

The balcony scene alone is worth the time it takes to read the entire book. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon who is already sick and pale with grief that thou, her maid, at far more fair than she.

If anything, this felt like an intentional mockery to me. So if anyone thinks this is categorized as Romance, I will stare at them like they've lost their heads.

The man laughed in the face of insta-love lust , and I laughed along with him. If he was here, I'd offer him a high five because hey, some of his mockery is true.

Many teens I'm not saying all tend to confuse lust and admiration for love. We also shoot our mouths like bullets at the adults who are supposed to 'know better'.

I may or may not be one of those teens. I've read Hamlet, Macbeth, and Julius Caesar where characters there are smart in their actions.

I've read The Tempest where the relationship between Miranda and Ferdinand took a slow, budding pace so why the sudden proclaimations of love and wedding vows here?

It does not adds up. Unless of course, you see this in a satirical point of view. Besides, Shakespeare always struck me as someone who explores in the deep meaning of love.

Love is not a subject he took lightly. This I assumed also by judging from what many people say about his sonnets. I didn't feel the air of tragic when Shakespeare killed off the characters here; poison down Romeo's throat, sword in Juliet's gut.

It felt like Shakespeare himself was laughing his ass off. Lookit these stupid teenagers. Lookit how blindly they throw themselves into relationships!

So bugger with the insta-lust. It's laughable, unrealistic even, but I've had the time of my life reading this play. If Shakespeare indeed meant this to be a satire, he did a great job.

Who does not know the story of Romeo and Juliet? And these immortal lines, "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.

Parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow. It has been adapted numerous times for stage, film, musical, opera and radio; the latest film went on general release just a few months ago in However, Shakespeare did not invent the story of Romeo and Juliet.

The tradition of tragic romances had been well established in literature - in particular Italian literature - for almost a hundred years, but what may be surprising is that many of the plot elements of Romeo and Juliet were all in Brooks' poem.

The first meeting of the lovers at the ball, their secret marriage, Romeo's fight with Tybalt, the sleeping potion, and even the timing of their eventual suicides, are all episodes which we usually attribute to Shakespeare.

This is characteristic of the author, who often wrote plays based on earlier works. Shakespeare's text is believed to have been written between and , and as such was one of his earliest performed plays, although not published until later.

It was an immediate success; so popular that Shakespeare continued to rework and hone the notes from the play's performances.

It was then first published in , with later editions improving on it still further. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime, and has remained so, now being the most performed of all his plays alongside "Hamlet.

It starts with a short prologue, in sonnet form, which tells the audience what is to follow. Nobody can be in any doubt that the story is a tragedy about young love, and that it will take their deaths to bring an end to family feuds.

We are then straight into the action, which is a masterly piece of writing, full of bawdy references to ensure his audiences' attention, while providing all the background information needed to understand the world of the play.

We are immediately told about the long-standing hatred between the two feuding families, the Capulets and the Montagues, and then immediately find ourselves engaged by an exciting brawl.

Shakespeare cleverly establishes some of the major themes of the play, right at its start. He also portrays all of the layers of Veronese society starting with the servants, right through to Prince Escalus.

Many of the secondary characters important to the play are also introduced here; for instance, Romeo's friend, Benvolio, thoughtful, pragmatic and fearful of the law, and Juliet's cousin Tybalt, a hothead, professing a hatred for peace as strong as his hatred for Montagues.

A modern audience becomes aware that in the Verona of this play, masculine honour is not restricted to indifference to pain or insult.

Tybalt makes it plain that a man must defend his honour at all times, whether the insult is verbal or physical. Mercutio is established as another friend; one who who can poke friendly fun at Romeo quite mercilessly.

Benvolio is not nearly so quick-witted. Mercutio is confident, constantly joking, making puns and laughing. He is a passionate man, but his passions are different from Romeo's love and Tybalt's hate.

Their passions are founded respectively upon two ideals of society - love and honour - but Mercutio believes in neither. He comes across as the character with the clearest vision.

Just as Mercutio can see through words to other meanings, he can also see through the ideals held by those around him. He understands that often they are not sincerely held, but merely adopted for convenience.

The characters in this play are multi-layered and complex, and Shakespeare is adept in revealing their subtleties by means of the action.

Even as Mercutio dies, he utters his wild witticisms, cursing both the Montagues and the Capulets, "A plague o' both your houses!

They have made worms' meat of me! At first he is melancholy, distracted and lovelorn, as we expect. But surprisingly he is not lovesick over Juliet, but is in love with Rosaline.

This love seems to stem almost entirely from the reading of bad love poetry! We understand from this that Romeo's love for Rosaline is an immature love, more a statement that he is ready to be in love than actual love.

Perhaps Rosaline, who never appears in the play, exists only to demonstrate Romeo's passionate nature, his love of being in love.

We meet Juliet in scene 3, and learn that in the Verona of this play, her status as a young woman leaves her with no power or choice in any social situation.

Juliet at 13 years old is completely subject to parental influence, and is being encouraged to marry her parent's choice of Paris.

Lady Capulet observes wryly that that she had already given birth to Juliet herself when she was Juliet's current age, before she was In this way the forces that determine the fate of Romeo and Juliet are laid in place well before they even meet.

Parental influence in the tragedy becomes a tool of fate. Juliet's arranged marriage with Paris, and the longstanding feud between Capulets and Montagues, will eventually contribute to the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.

The reader enjoys the tension, and knowledge that terrible events are about to happen. Events and observations continually reinforce the presence and power of fate.

Juliet's speeches have many different facets, and are capable of many interpretations. She often professes one thing, whilst we know she has an ulterior motive, and another intention.

This is particularly evident when she is speaking to her parents, knowing that she intends to make her own decisions, she perversely wants to speak her mind, but deliberately couches her words in double meanings so that the truth will remain hidden.

Juliet is a strong character in the play, particularly fascinating to a modern reader as she seems almost contemporary. She repeatedly goes against what is expected of women of her time and place, and takes action.

The best example of this is when she drinks the sleeping potion. She comes up with many reasons why it might cause her harm, and recognises that drinking the potion might lead her to madness or even death.

Yet she chooses to drink it anyway. This demonstrates a willingness to take her life into her own hands - and also hints at future events.

SAMPSON True; and therefore women, being the weaker vessels, are ever thrust to the wall: therefore I will push Montague's men from the wall, and thrust his maids to the wall.

Draw thy tool! I will bite my thumb at them; which is a disgrace to them, if they bear it. But now, my lord, what say you to my suit?

CAPULET But saying o'er what I have said before: My child is yet a stranger in the world; She hath not seen the change of fourteen years, Let two more summers wither in their pride, Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride.

The earth hath swallow'd all my hopes but she, She is the hopeful lady of my earth: But woo her, gentle Paris, get her heart, My will to her consent is but a part; An she agree, within her scope of choice Lies my consent and fair according voice.

This night I hold an old accustom'd feast, Whereto I have invited many a guest, Such as I love; and you, among the store, One more, most welcome, makes my number more.

At my poor house look to behold this night Earth-treading stars that make dark heaven light: Such comfort as do lusty young men feel When well-apparell'd April on the heel Of limping winter treads, even such delight Among fresh female buds shall you this night Inherit at my house; hear all, all see, And like her most whose merit most shall be: Which on more view, of many mine being one May stand in number, though in reckoning none, Come, go with me.

To Servant, giving a paper. Nurse Now, by my maidenhead, at twelve year old, I bade her come. What, lamb! God forbid! Where's this girl?

What, Juliet! Or shall we on without a apology? BENVOLIO The date is out of such prolixity: We'll have no Cupid hoodwink'd with a scarf, Bearing a Tartar's painted bow of lath, Scaring the ladies like a crow-keeper; Nor no without-book prologue, faintly spoke After the prompter, for our entrance: But let them measure us by what they will; We'll measure them a measure, and be gone.

Give me a case to put my visage in: A visor for a visor! Here are the beetle brows shall blush for me. ROMEO A torch for me: let wantons light of heart Tickle the senseless rushes with their heels, For I am proverb'd with a grandsire phrase; I'll be a candle-holder, and look on.

The game was ne'er so fair, and I am done. Come, we burn daylight, ho! Take our good meaning, for our judgment sits Five times in that ere once in our five wits.

She is the fairies' midwife, and she comes In shape no bigger than an agate-stone On the fore-finger of an alderman, Drawn with a team of little atomies Athwart men's noses as they lie asleep; Her wagon-spokes made of long spiders' legs, The cover of the wings of grasshoppers, The traces of the smallest spider's web, The collars of the moonshine's watery beams, Her whip of cricket's bone, the lash of film, Her wagoner a small grey-coated gnat, Not so big as a round little worm Prick'd from the lazy finger of a maid; Her chariot is an empty hazel-nut Made by the joiner squirrel or old grub, Time out o' mind the fairies' coachmakers.

And in this state she gallops night by night Through lovers' brains, and then they dream of love; O'er courtiers' knees, that dream on court'sies straight, O'er lawyers' fingers, who straight dream on fees, O'er ladies ' lips, who straight on kisses dream, Which oft the angry Mab with blisters plagues, Because their breaths with sweetmeats tainted are: Sometime she gallops o'er a courtier's nose, And then dreams he of smelling out a suit; And sometime comes she with a tithe-pig's tail Tickling a parson's nose as a' lies asleep, Then dreams, he of another benefice: Sometime she driveth o'er a soldier's neck, And then dreams he of cutting foreign throats, Of breaches, ambuscadoes, Spanish blades, Of healths five-fathom deep; and then anon Drums in his ear, at which he starts and wakes, And being thus frighted swears a prayer or two And sleeps again.

This is that very Mab That plats the manes of horses in the night, And bakes the elflocks in foul sluttish hairs, Which once untangled, much misfortune bodes: This is the hag, when maids lie on their backs, That presses them and learns them first to bear, Making them women of good carriage: This is she-- ROMEO Peace, peace, Mercutio, peace!

Thou talk'st of nothing. MERCUTIO True, I talk of dreams, Which are the children of an idle brain, Begot of nothing but vain fantasy, Which is as thin of substance as the air And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes Even now the frozen bosom of the north, And, being anger'd, puffs away from thence, Turning his face to the dew-dropping south.

ROMEO I fear, too early: for my mind misgives Some consequence yet hanging in the stars Shall bitterly begin his fearful date With this night's revels and expire the term Of a despised life closed in my breast By some vile forfeit of untimely death.

But He, that hath the steerage of my course, Direct my sail! On, lusty gentlemen. Musicians waiting. He shift a trencher? Second Servant When good manners shall lie all in one or two men's hands and they unwashed too, 'tis a foul thing.

First Servant Away with the joint-stools, remove the court-cupboard, look to the plate. Good thou, save me a piece of marchpane; and, as thou lovest me, let the porter let in Susan Grindstone and Nell.

Antony, and Potpan! I've always felt that John missed the lower half and that made me go for the other But whatever it was, when I was playing Romeo I was carrying a torch, I was trying to sell realism in Shakespeare.

Peter Brook 's version was the beginning of a different style of Romeo and Juliet performances. Brook was less concerned with realism, and more concerned with translating the play into a form that could communicate with the modern world.

He argued, "A production is only correct at the moment of its correctness, and only good at the moment of its success.

Throughout the century, audiences, influenced by the cinema, became less willing to accept actors distinctly older than the teenage characters they were playing.

In an interview with The Times , he stated that the play's "twin themes of love and the total breakdown of understanding between two generations" had contemporary relevance.

Recent performances often set the play in the contemporary world. For example, in , the Royal Shakespeare Company set the play in modern Verona.

Switchblades replaced swords, feasts and balls became drug-laden rock parties, and Romeo committed suicide by hypodermic needle.

Neil Bartlett's production of Romeo and Juliet themed the play very contemporary with a cinematic look which started its life at the Lyric Hammersmith, London then went to West Yorkshire Playhouse for an exclusive run in Romeo sneaks into the Capulet barbecue to meet Juliet, and Juliet discovers Tybalt's death while in class at school.

The play is sometimes given a historical setting, enabling audiences to reflect on the underlying conflicts. For example, adaptations have been set in the midst of the Israeli—Palestinian conflict , [] in the apartheid era in South Africa, [] and in the aftermath of the Pueblo Revolt.

In the 19th and 20th century, Romeo and Juliet has often been the choice of Shakespeare plays to open a classical theatre company, beginning with Edwin Booth 's inaugural production of that play in his theatre in , the newly re-formed company of the Old Vic in with John Gielgud , Martita Hunt , and Margaret Webster , [] as well as the Riverside Shakespeare Company in its founding production in New York City in , which used the film of Franco Zeffirelli 's production as its inspiration.

The best-known ballet version is Prokofiev 's Romeo and Juliet. It has subsequently attained an "immense" reputation, and has been choreographed by John Cranko and Kenneth MacMillan among others.

In , Michael Smuin 's production of one of the play's most dramatic and impassioned dance interpretations was debuted in its entirety by San Francisco Ballet.

This production was the first full-length ballet to be broadcast by the PBS series " Great Performances : Dance in America"; it aired in Dada Masilo, a South African dancer and choreographer, reinterpreted Romeo and Juliet in a new modern light.

She introduced changes to the story, notably that of presenting the two families as multiracial. At least 24 operas have been based on Romeo and Juliet.

It is occasionally revived. The play influenced several jazz works, including Peggy Lee 's " Fever ". This version updated the setting to midth-century New York City and the warring families to ethnic gangs.

Romeo and Juliet had a profound influence on subsequent literature. Before then, romance had not even been viewed as a worthy topic for tragedy.

Romeo and Juliet was parodied in Shakespeare's own lifetime: Henry Porter 's Two Angry Women of Abingdon and Thomas Dekker 's Blurt, Master Constable both contain balcony scenes in which a virginal heroine engages in bawdy wordplay.

For example, the preparations for a performance form a major plot arc in Charles Dickens ' Nicholas Nickleby. Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare's most-illustrated works.

Lois Leveen 's novel Juliet's Nurse imagined the fourteen years leading up to the events in the play from the point of view of the nurse.

The nurse has the third largest number of lines in the original play; only the eponymous characters have more lines. The board attracted widespread media criticism and derision after the question appeared to confuse the Capulets and the Montagues, [] [] [] with exams regulator Ofqual describing the error as unacceptable.

Romeo and Juliet may be the most-filmed play of all time. The latter two were both, in their time, the highest-grossing Shakespeare film ever.

Neither critics nor the public responded enthusiastically. Cinema-goers considered the film too "arty", staying away as they had from Warner's A Midsummer Night Dream a year before: leading to Hollywood abandoning the Bard for over a decade.

Stephen Orgel describes Franco Zeffirelli 's Romeo and Juliet as being "full of beautiful young people, and the camera and the lush technicolour make the most of their sexual energy and good looks".

The play has been widely adapted for TV and film. In , Peter Ustinov 's cold-war stage parody, Romanoff and Juliet was filmed. The film was a commercial and critical success.

The production starred Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad. The production used RSC actors who engaged with the audience as well each other, performing not from a traditional script but a "Grid" developed by the Mudlark production team and writers Tim Wright and Bethan Marlow.

The performers also make use of other media sites such as YouTube for pictures and video.
