Romeo And Juliet Play Vs Movie Analysis
Romeo and Juliet Play vs. Movie There were quite of few differences between William
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet play and Baz Luhrmann's movie based on the play. For example,
the ending scene in the movie left out a lot. Paris never showed up at the cemetery to place flowers
at Juliet's tomb. Thus, Paris and Romeo never got in a quarrel that had ended in Paris's death. Baz
Luhrmann probably left out this small part in the movie because Paris wasn't a major character in
the movie. Also at that part in the scene there was already a lot going on, so leaving out that fight
between Romeo and Paris wouldn't have taken a huge toll in that certain scene. In the play that small
detail told the readers that Paris's love was true for Juliet. However by leaving out that part out in
the movie it didn't tell the audience if Paris was actually into the marriage for true love. Also Juliet
was awake before Romeo died as well. However he didn't notice that she was awake quick enough
before he had drank the poison. By having Juliet wake before Romeo passed away made that ...

There were lots of gunfights and drugs and alcohol were mentioned a few times. The movie had
some trollops in the beginning as well. The director added these things in the movie so it would fit
the present day Verona lifestyle. The love between Romeo and Juliet felt so much stronger and their
love was really easy to see. The movie treats them as a mixture of immature and serious adults.
Usually couples date for a year or more before they even decide if their partner is worthy of
marriage. Romeo and Juliet got married after a day of knowing each other so that was a little
immature. However, their love was serious because they knew what they wanted and they didn't
hesitate. Then again, killing themselves over each other was really immature and dumb. In all
honesty, their love was a flight of fancy because them trying to make things work was near to

Literary Analysis of The Play of Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet Literally Essay Romeo and Juliet is a play written in the late 1500s by William
Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet, two star crossed lovers make their way to be together as they face
challenges from their society, parents etc. In the beginning of the play the prologue introduces the
tragic end of their love and thus bringing peace to their rival families. In act 2 scene 5 Friar
Laurence a wise character in the play marries Romeo and Juliet in hope ending the rivalry between
their families. But before holding the nuptial of Romeo and Juliet Friar Lawrence with a basket full
of herbs compares his herbs to Romeo and Juliet's love situation. Can the play of Romeo and Juliet
be related to how the nature of plants work? In fulfilling the answer of this question Shakespeare
explores this question in his famous play of Romeo and Juliet. In act 2 scene 3 Friar, a mentor of
Romeo expresses his belief on the truthfulness of Romeo and Juliet's love comparing his actions
about marrying them with different personality of his herbs, suggesting that good and evil coexist in
the decision he makes. In act 2 scene 3 Shakespeare uses a form of literally term antitheses and
other figurative languages to convey a certain meaning to his play. Shakespeare's use of antithesis
signifies Friar Laurence's sentiment toward Romeo's love compared with his herbs. Friar tells
Romeo that his herbs have different personalities; some can be used for medicine while other may
be used for a

The Dramatic Impact of Friar Lawrence in the play Romeo and Juliet The play "Romeo and Juliet"
has many characters, each with their individual role in sustaining the plot. Although Friar Lawrence
spends only a little time on stage, his role is fundamental to understanding the morals of the play.
This essay explores the significance and dramatic impact of Friar Lawrence on the play and his
influence on other characters. The essence of young love is expressed in no better play than in
"Romeo and Juliet". The play is not a simple love story; it is as much about hate as it is about love
and the morals of society. The play is set in Verona where Romeo and Juliet fall instantly in love at a
masked ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Unfortunately, for all of Friar Lawrence's seemingly good intentions, the play still ends in tragedy.
Ostensibly, Friar Lawrence is a man who is not afraid to jeopardize his reputation as a religious
leader, in order to unite the families; as in Act 2, Scene 6, when he marries Romeo and Juliet in
secret. This is reinforced by the quote; "For this alliance may so happy prove, To turn your
household rancour to pure love." However he makes a fatal mistake when he asks Juliet to drink the
potion in order to deceive her family; "this vial, being then in bed… and this distilled liquor drink
thou off" (IV.i.95–96), In the above statement he advises Juliet to drink a potion so that she might
fake her own death and avoid marrying Paris, yet he is subverting the stereotypical image of a friar
by deceiving the families. Friar Lawrence does not appear to be a prudent individual, e.g., when he
marries Romeo and Juliet in secrecy, he does not consider the consequences of his actions which
will be inflicted on the two young lovers. Unfortunately he did not predict the quarantining of Friar
John who was unable to deliver the critical message of Juliet's feigned death. As well as a religious
adviser and confidante, Friar Lawrence was also a chemist and drew parallels between this
profession and his philosophies on

In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare two young lovers take their lives. After falling in love, Romeo and Juliet discover that their families are sworn enemies. The "star–crossed lovers" continue their relationship secretly, until complications make suicide a choice. Frair Lawrence should not be blamed because he had Romeo and Juliet's best interest at heart. Romeo and Juliet's impulsive and irresponsible actions let to their own tragic deaths. Romeo's feelings greatly impacted the outcome of the story. His impulsiveness caused him to fall in and out of love too fast. In the beginning of the story, Romeo was heartbroken and depressed about his "love", Rosalyn. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Juliet's parent's thought moving up her wedding date with Paris would cure her depression and make her happy. Capulet wondered "Doth she not count her blest, Unworthy as she is, that we have wrought so worthy of a gentleman to be her bride?" (3. 3. 144–46) Little did he know, the wedding made her even more depressed and unhappy. If this had not occurred then Juliet would not have faked her own death, which caused the suicides of both Romeo and Juliet. Therefore Romeo and Juliet are at fault for their own deaths because they kept their love a secret. Friar Lawrence should not have been blamed for the death of Romeo and Juliet. He should not be blamed for giving Juliet the potion because she threatened to kill her self if he didn't. She said "Unless thou tell me how I may prevent it/ If in thy wisdom thou canst give no help/ Do thou but call my resolution wise/ And with this knife I'll help it presently"(4.1 51–54). Friar Lawrence did not want Juliet to kill herself so he was forced to give her the potion. He intended on Romeo being together happily, and alive. His plan was unsuccessful because it was not in his hands. Friar warned them when they got married "therefore, love moderately; long love doth so"(2.6 12). He warned Romeo not get too carried away with their love, and to love Juliet calmly and sensibly. Romeo did not listen to his advice and made tragic decisions without thinking.

How Does Benvolio's Role In The Play Romeo And Juliet After reading and interpreting the performance scene(s), I learned that: In the play of Romeo and Juliet, Benvolio, though unsuccessful, tries to act as the peace keeper during the major conflicts between the Montagues and Capulets. However, the long–standing feud between the two families quickly overwhelms Benvolio's feeble efforts to bring peace and often lead to fights nevertheless. At the beginning of the scene, he subtly tells Mercutio of his concern for a potential fight, due to the hot weather by saying "I pray thee, good Mercutio, let's retire. / The day is hot, the Capulets abroad, / And if we meet, we shall not scape a brawl, / For now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring." (III.i.1–4). This immediately shows that Benvolio is a very cautious, and sensible character, because his fear ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

Later on, he shows his view of Tybalt by telling Mercutio, "By my head, here come the Capulets (III.i.32), when he approaches them. The negative connotation used in this sentence shows that he is not pleased by the Capulet's arrival. After a few seconds of exchanged insults, Benvolio realizes that a fight is about to break out between Mercutio and Tybalt, so he quickly declares, "We talk here in the public haunt of men.

There have been many reenactments done of this play. When viewing a live performance of a play versus reading the play there are many items to compare as well as contrast. The difference of the way the play is read or heard may completely change how the play is perceived through different aspects. For example, if the play is being watched then it is acted out and may have a completely different tone than if the reader is reading the play themselves. When we compare the changes in plot, the dialogue, and the characterization, it will be clear that the visual and the written play are dominated by two different tones. First, there are many differences that are able to be spotted from the written play versus the video of the play. The biggest difference that can be found from the two different versions of Romeo and Juliet is changes that take place throughout the plot. The play was written in a different time period than when the movie was filmed. The original play was written in the lake 1500's by William Shakespeare whereas, the first movie was filmed in 1968.

Additionally, the alikeness of the two version was considerable more conspicuous than the contradictions of the two literature pieces.

William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet is without doubt one of the most well–known love story. Throughout the five acts of the play, one tragedy follows another, with the famous suicide of Romeo and Juliet as a tragic conclusion. Throughout the play, it may seem that Romeo caused these events to unfold, however it is unjust to say that he bears all responsibility for the tragedy. The decisions, actions and circumstances that other characters made and faced have also contributed to the tragic outcome. Nevertheless, it is also in the hands of fate that destined the immature deaths of Romeo and Juliet Juliet's conceding to a forbidden relationship with Romeo was the ...

And it was unfortunate that the letter could not reach Romeo as there is a plague spreading and Friar John was forbidden to leave Verona. Before they were born Romeo and Juliet were chosen as agents of fate, and that it would be a "death–marked love". Romeo himself admits that he is driven by fate: "I fear too early for my mind misgives / Some consequences yet hanging in the stars" (Act1 Scene4 Lines106–107). However, even if Romeo and Juliet did not meet at the Capulets' ball, fate could make the star–crossed lovers meet at another time, as an important task has to be fulfilled as the result of this "death–mark'd love". Another major factor in the play is the family feud between the Capulets and the Montagues. Without the feud, the young lovers may be together and may not have to act is such desperation that had driven them to commit suicide. The feud has a direct impact on the actions characters decide from the very beginning, thus, it is another important deciding factor regarding the outcome of the play. Because both Romeo and Juliet feel intense passion for each other, they behave in a very hasty and dangerous manner.

However this differs from Romeo and Juliet's love. As soon as Romeo see's Juliet he is immediately amazed and so enthusiastic about their love, "O, she doth teach the torches to burn Bright!" Suggesting she teaches light how to be light the audience can also hear that Romeo is completely besotted with Juliet. This use of language also shows that Romeo thinks the world of Juliet and would give anything to be with her. "So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows" this is showing the purity of their love, and how Juliet's light is shining through the darkness of everyone else how Romeo perceives the world, it's also another of many contrasts in this play, light and dark, love and hate. When Romeo and Juliet are talking they use religious imagery, "This holy shrine, the gentle sin is this:" This is talking about how holy and beautiful her hands are, like worshipping god; the effect on the audience is that Romeo is comparing Juliet to a god, and since God is perfect Juliet must be perfect. Juliet then goes on to say "Then have my lips the sin that they took" She is referring to sinning which she is not meant to by Gods word.

  • 19. What Role Does Fate Play In Romeo And Juliet Essay Does character or fate play the greater role in bringing about the tragic ending of Romeo and Juliet? I believe that that fate played the greater role because it brought Romeo and Juliet together, it caused Romeo and Juliet to be born into enemy families and brought the Montagues and the Capulets together in the end. If fate had not played the main role Romeo might not have ended up with Juliet. I think that character traits would have left Romeo chasing after Rosaline and Juliet married to Paris. If not for fate, the plot would have been completely different. Fate brought Romeo and Juliet together by taking advantage of love at first sight. Most people do not believe in love at first sight because they think you should get to know someone before falling in love. If not for fate, I believe that Romeo and Juliet would not end up together. Judging by the fact that Romeo is a teenage boy, he would most likely find another beautiful girl that he's "madly in love with". Romeo seemed very certain about his love for Juliet, but he didn't actually know what love was. Character traits cannot change the fact that Romeo and Juliet were born into enemy families.

It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. The 1968 film version of Romeo and Juliet is a British–Italian romance film based on the tragic play by William Shakespeare.

Mercutio's major function in the play is to be a catalyst for the plot. Mercutio's purpose as a character is most significantly revealed in his relationship with Romeo, his baiting of Tybalt, and his death. More importantly, Mercutio functions as the catalyst for the pattern of disasters in the play that follows his own tragic death, making him, as described by critic Stephen Greenblatt "a spirit that seems to challenge the very possibility of romantic love or tragic destiny" (856).

Mercutio tells Romeo "If thou are dun we'll draw thee from the mire / Of–save your reverence–love, wherein though stickest / Up to the ears" (I.iv.41–43). Mercutio scorns the romantic love and relationships that weaken their friendship. Mercutio's bawdry and scorn are seen as especially ill mannered because he expresses it "in an age celebrating domesticity and middle–class marriage" (Porter 34). The connection of Mercutio's name to the misogynistic god Mercury supports his view of love and relationships (Porter 38). "Mercutio's Mercurian message is that Romeo should stay with, or come back to, the world of male comradeship" (Porter 107). Furthermore, Mercury was a troublesome, quick to anger, and swift messenger. Likewise, Mercutio is hot–headed and quick to act. Mercutio's need for action and his ridiculing nature are also seen in his aggressive baiting of Tybalt. At first, Mercutio seems almost excited to see Romeo fight Tybalt in Act Three, Scene One. "And but one word with one of us? Couple it with / something; make it a word and a blow" (III.i.35–36).

In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare and the Baz Luhrmann film Romeo + Juliet, Nurse is one of these characters. Her actions are often unpredictable. The Nurse's inconsistent traits all come from the trust Juliet has in the Nurse and the influence over Juliet that comes with trust. The Nurse helps Juliet, but then taunts her and causes Juliet to rethink their relationship. In the film, the Nurse's costuming also plays a role in showing inconsistency.

  • 45. How Did Romeo And Juliet Change Throughout The Play Juliet's evolving personality, one that changes from obedient to tragic, is a likely cause of Lord Capulet's drastic character change throughout the play. Shakespeare expresses this development via changes in Lord Capulet's actions, all of which have an ultimate motive of preserving what Lord Capulet believes is best for Juliet. The change in Juliet's character forces Lord Capulet to attempt to restore her personality and ultimately to realize his failure. At the start of Act I, when County Paris approaches Lord Capulet and asks for Juliet's hand in marriage, Lord Capulet is reluctant to allow the County to marry the immature Juliet. Lord Capulet is mellow about the proposal because he believes Juliet's opinion of Paris, "within her scope of choice/Lies my consent and fair according voice" (I.ii.18–19).

Upon a second request from County Paris for Juliet's hand in marriage, Lord Capulet changes his mind about Juliet marrying at an immature age. Lord Capulet, who now believes that Juliet cannot make her own mature decisions, gives Paris his blessing to marry Juliet.

He hastily prepares to "have this knot knit up tomorrow morning" (IV.ii.25), which ultimately leads to Juliet's depression and alleged death. Upon which, he realizes, "Death is my son–in–law, death is my heir" (IV.v.44). Lord Capulet's desire to "have this knot knit tomorrow morning" indicates that Lord Capulet cares about Juliet's future. When Capulet realizes that "Death is my heir", he changes his personality to react to Juliet's death. Capulet's reaction to Juliet's alleged death is a capstone on his personality changes.

Without the two families being at odds with each other there would have never been an issue with Romeo & Juliet getting married. Also Tybalt would have never killed Mercutio therefore Romeo would not have killed Tybalt. The Prologue explains the feud "Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean." Today, feuds still impact many people. Aurora Kodra 16, of Albania cannot leave her own home without fearing for her life. She is part of a feud that is decades old between two families.

  • 51. The Deaths of Romeo and Juliet in William Shakespeare's... The Deaths of Romeo and Juliet in William Shakespeare's Play Romeo and Juliet was written in 1595 for an Elizabethan audience. It was set in Verona and Mantua in Italy. People of Shakespeare's time thought of Italy as immoral and famous for it sexual affairs and crime. The audience would have expected Romeo and Juliet to include affairs and violence but would still react shocked to the actions going on in the play, as even though it would be normal, because of the notorious rumours of Italy, the audience would be used to have a happy ending. When fate and inevitability are present in a storyline the audience feels pity for the characters and fear for what is going to happen. The deaths in the play ...

Tybalt is a perfect example of how the Montague–Capulet feud had taken over his life. "As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee" shows how much he really despises Montagues. He has been taught and brought up to believe that the Montagues are the enemy, so he is always trying to fight them. When he finds out that Romeo went to the Capulet's party, Tybalt says that he wants to kill him. His actions are melodramatic and this is showed with the punctuation that is used. There is an excessive amount of explanation points and short words, which create the effect that he is short tempered and energetic. Shakespeare has used Tybalt to reflect the intense hatred for each other, between the households. This does not let the audience ever forget the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. Mercutio blames both the Montagues and the Capulets for his own death, when Tybalt stabs him after becoming involved in a fight between them. He repeats the word "a plague o' both your houses" he curses them both for continuing the feud. The feud between the two households causes a rift between Romeo and Juliet but they choose to ignore that their families are fighting and still meet each other in secret and continue to develop their relationship.

  • 53. Romeo And Juliet Play Vs Movie Ever wondered who produced a "Romeo and Juliet," movie or play, other than Shakespeare himself? If you didn't well it's time you do. Franco Zeffirelli is both an Italian producer and director. Zeffirelli was born February 12, 1923 in Florence, Italy. Baz Luhrmann, another producer and director, also produced a movie of "Romeo and Juliet". Luhrmann's version took place in modern time, when the Zeffirelli version was closer to the plot of the book. This is why the Zeffirelli does an exceptional job in retelling the tragedy. First, the Zeffirelli version is better because of the costumes. For example, the costumes gave off a better motion into some scenes. In 1:1, the costumes made the audience seem more into it. This shows that, the leggings are a better choice, because of all the movement. This example illustrates, leggings are tight and not lose, which is what sells ...

Without the need of illusions or making the character seem like they're on drugs and shows he's done a good job. This is because the party had to seem fun. Also the mood in the Zeffirelli version gave off a more romantic feeling. What this illustrates is how the Luhrmann version seemed more like a party, but not with the right feeling. For example, in the party scene, Romeo and Juliet had to meet for the very first time, and Luhrmann doesn't really have a pleasing point of view. As a result Zeffirelli had a better eye on the tragedy. Zeffirelli was closer to the book. Would you like someone changing your thoughts. Yes, Romeo and Juliet is about love, and it can happen anywhere. The Luhrmann version changes everything,including the plot. In the future producers should try to make it closer to the book.

Within the next 12 hours, he has completely forgotten about Rosaline and decides that he is in love with Juliet Capulet instead. After saying to his friends that he will never love anyone else, he certainly changes his mind quickly.

In Act 1, Romeo says to Benvolio, "She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow do I live dead, that live to tell it now" (Shakespeare 1.1.231–232). He sulks in his depression all night– at least until he sees Juliet for the first time. He even shows his lack of cautiousness in his very quick jump from miserable to elated. Most people possess at least a little bit of hesitancy when going from one love to another, but not Romeo. He lives on whims and feelings, not thinking about the choices he makes but doing whatever he thinks best at the moment. The emotional ups and downs that Romeo seems to enjoy so much will likely be what leads him to commit suicide in the end. He possesses the type of personality makes him need instant gratification for his desires, and if this is not the case then he cannot handle it.

The Characters lived in a modern era with the same story as the bard intended, they used guns and switchblades instead of the traditional swords, the feast of Capulet took place during a house party and the marketplace fight was more of a cafe. The story of Romeo And Juliet could apply to any time period, two children falling in love but kept apart by parents.

One could almost believe that they lived them. Mercutio was so true to character it was hard to believe the actor was a real person, such enthusiasm, so much energy, all in all an amazing visage of the manic friend to Romeo. The Nurse was a hilarious bigger black lady who felt like something straight out of a new orleans home. Very soulful acting and the way she used her movements and expressions to give new meaning to the lines was extremely entertaining.

This version of Romeo and Juliet is much older and sticks more what Shakespeare wrote instead of being a bit more adventurous like Luhrmann. In Zeffirelli's version Juliet seems to be a little more immature than in Luhrmann's play. She seems younger and not as sensible, but also seems just as obedient as she is in Luhrmann's version. In this scene, it begins with Juliet persuading and convincing Romeo that it is not yet time for him to leave.

A colourful character not afraid to express her, um let's say, desires; she brings a fun energetic feel to the performance capturing the true character of Mecrutio. Benvolio is sensible and always trying to go the right way about things staying away from trouble.
