Both texts discuss the barrier of stifling humanity, however, in the poem the narrator decides to suffer under his parents’ expectation, where in the short story the speakers are blind about the barrier that they are

His dwelling over his “love [for Rosaline], feel no love...”(Shakespeare, Act I, line:177) seems to take up all his attention, making him only want to talk about how glum he is rather than the carnage of the town after the fight between the Montagues and Capulets that happened just moments prior to his arrival. When he says this, he means that no matter how much he loves her, she is not interested and does not love him back. This gives insight
