ProMy favourite play

ConsNone

“Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare is set in ‘fair Verona’ and is also set at a time where a woman was often seen as a possession by a husband rather than a companion. This is one of the aspects of the play that make it so powerful since Romeo and Juliet’s love is the modern, Western love...

“Romeo and Juilet Decision”

published 27/07/2002

ProVery good writing

Consnone

In terms of the plot, Act 2 scene 2 is near enough one third of the way through the play, not much before the middle. Before this Act and scene, we are given two families in Verona, Capulet and Montague who, are strongly against each other. A fight in the city started the play off, and the Prince...

ConsArchaic Language

Is Shakespeare’s portrayal of a patriarchal Verona ironic and subversive, or is the play an endorsement of male power? It is vital to establish the definition of the term patriarchy in order to discuss the essay question in detail. The Oxford English Dictionary, (edited by Judy Pearsall)...

Consthe language
