Advantagesgreat story

Disadvantagesnone

"Romeo and Juliet was written in 1595 by William Shakespeare as a play. It is classed as a tragic play, therefore involves a protagonist that has a peak in his or her life involving good fortune, but then on after good fortune turns quickly into bad, ending up in sadness and misfortune for the protagonist. All tragedies follow the same pattern, only changing the peak point and the speed of good fortune going bad. When mentioned, Shakespeare is often ..." Read review

"For never was a story of more woe" Review with images

Advantagesgreat story, strong characters, help and guidance

Disadvantages/

"...would be starting with the Romeo and Juliet unit, I didn't know what to think. I had never actually watched it, shockingly, or had the chance to read it. I knew briefly what the play was about, but I wasn't aware of any in depth detail. When we were handed out the books, I had a look at the cover for any clues. It was quite a dull, and basic colour, with a photo of a balcony on the front. Underneath the 'Romeo' and 'Juliet' were written in white, ..." Read review

Violence and Sex.. Not Romance

AdvantagesN/A

DisadvantagesN/A

"...the romance stand out more, Romeo and Juliet is a very famous piece of Shakespeare's work, but is often thought to be extremely romantic and 'lovey-dovey', however with a deeper look underneath the surface it involves a lot of sex, violence, back-stabbing and corruption and isn't so romantic. William Shakespeare is an extremely well known and established writer to this day, despite his death centuries ago. This statement just shows the skill of Shakespeare, ..." Read review

All our sympathies lie with Juliet

AdvantagesMy favourite play

DisadvantagesNone

"...make it so powerful since Romeo and Juliet’s love is the modern, Western love affair. It goes against the wishes of the feuding families but also against the routine of society. This means that Juliet is faced with many problems as she pursues her love affair with Romeo and from her first scene the amount of help she receives is unclear and cause for argument. Juliet first appears in Act One Scene three. She is an obedient and well brought up child, ..." Read review

The compelling play with so many different types of love

Advantagesexiting and tragic

Disadvantagesold dyalect can be hard to understand

"...different kinds of love in Romeo and Juliet. Write as much as you can about the different view of love which Shakespeare gives us. In the play there are examples of many different kinds of love. There is the romantic love between Romeo and Juliet. There is the rude love that Mercutio talks about and the bawdy, comical love that the nurse jokes about. There is the arranged love between Paris and Juliet. Romeo experienced love at first sight for ..." Read review
