  1. 1. Jordan Blaylock        " Electronic Publications"
  2. 2. &quot;Facts&quot; Title, When book was writing , Author, Genre <ul><li>The title of the book that I have chosen is Romeo and Juliet. This book was written by Shakespeare most likely in 1594 or 1595. The author of Romeo and Juliet was a person that is greatly known and that person's name is Shakespeare. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul> 
  3. 3. The Plot <ul><li>First, I will say that the plot of this book and story is very very long and so what I did was just gave you the parts that I think is important to you. In the streets of Verona another brawl breaks out between the servants of the feuding noble families of Capulet and Montague. Benvolio, a Montague, tries to stop the fighting, but is himself embroiled when the rash Capulet, Tybalt, arrives on the scene. After citizens outraged by the constant violence beat back the warring factions, Prince Escalus, the ruler of Verona, attempts to prevent any further conflicts between the families by decreeing death for any individual who disturbs the peace in the future. Romeo, the son of Montague, runs into his cousin Benvolio, who had earlier seen Romeo moping in a grove of sycamores. After some prodding by Benvolio, Romeo confides that he is in love with Rosaline, a woman who does not return his affections. Benvolio counsels him to forget this woman and find another, more beautiful one, but Romeo remains despondent. Meanwhile, Paris, a kinsman of the Prince, seeks Juliet’s hand in marriage. Her father Capulet, though happy at the match, asks Paris to wait two years, since Juliet is not yet even fourteen. In Capulet’s household, young Juliet talks with her mother, Lady Capulet, and her nurse about the possibility of marrying Paris. A melancholy Romeo follows Benvolio and their witty friend Mercutio to Capulet’s house. Once inside, Romeo sees Juliet from a distance and instantly falls in love with her; he forgets about Rosaline completely. As Mercutio and Benvolio leave the Capulet estate, Romeo leaps over the orchard wall into the garden, unable to leave Juliet behind. From his hiding place, he sees Juliet in a window above the orchard and hears her speak his name. He calls out to her, and they exchange vows of love. Romeo learns only of Juliet’s death and decides to kill himself rather than live without her. He buys a vial of poison from a reluctant Apothecary, then speeds back to Verona to take his own life at Juliet’s tomb. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Characters <ul><li>The two characters that I have chosen are the two main characters of the story. The first one is a man named Romeo and the second was a woman named Juliet. Throughout this whole story there are several characters that really are important to the story and have a great impact on the influence of the story. In this book there are two main groups that have a battle against each other and really do not like each other with a passion, and those groups are the Capulets and the Montague's. But with the two main characters Romeo and Juliet there is a great deal of conflict, but yet in the conflict there is great passion to be with each other. From when they met in the begining for the first time they saw each other and thought that somehow they could get together, but shortly after that they found out that they were of the two different groups and were saddened by that cause they did not think that they would get together because the groups they were a part of. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Setting <ul><li>The play takes place in the town of Verona. It is a city that looks somewhat like Italy. It is really beautiful at night and has a lot of tall buildings and house that really do not take a lot of space up in width but in length. Also a lot of the buildings there are built out of stone and brick that give it a very unique look. They have a lot of hills and everything is really close together, like shopping place and house are all within 30 minutes of walking distance. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Conflict <ul><li>In the story of Romeo and Juliet there is one particular part of conflict that sticks out. For instances there is a conflict between a lot of the character in this story, but the one that sticks out the one is the one between the two main character of the story, and those character are Romeo and Juliet. The main conflict is that one is from the Montagues and one was a Capulet, and the Montagues and the Capulets had nothing in common and in fact they literally hate each other. So the conflict is how can two people from two different groups that hate each other and come together and get marry. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Theme <ul><li>In my opinion the theme of this book is a love story, but not only a love story but the greatest love story book written in as long as I can think. This is a book that everyone I talk to about it loves it and thinks that it is the greatest too. Throughout the whole entire story you can see this developing more and more and it has several moments where it reaches a very high moment of love, and in this book I see the love story so greatly shown. </li></ul>
  8. 8. My Opinion <ul><li>I will just say that I am not a person that spends a whole lot of time reading books and magazines, but I really did like this story and I would not mind reading it again. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end and it always had that life in it that kept you interested. I would say that of all the books that have been written over the span of the world that this is one that one be on the top 50 of all time. This is a book that everyone that I know has read it at least one or more times, and probably even owns the book till this day. Yes, the popularity of Shakespeare's plays is assured because of the enduring nature of the themes they encompass and because of the creativity of modern film directors in reinterpreting the plays for their audiences. </li></ul>
