Most people see William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet as a romantic love story of two teens who killed themselves for each other, but who is really to blame here? Friar Laurence is at fault for their deaths because he married Romeo and Juliet, did not have a good plan set up, and left Juliet alone in the tomb. One reason why Friar Laurence is at fault is because in Act Two, Scene Three, Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet secretly. Friar Lawrence told Romeo he had doubts because they had just met, also, Romeo had just been so in love with Rosaline the day before, and should wait. Romeo disagreed, and the friar gave in and married them anyway.
Hamlet vs. Star Wars – Comparative Essay Revenge Everyone that knows William Shakespeare and his writing, know that there is a large collection of movies that showcase the bones and foundation of his plays. George Lucas’ Star Wars, for example, has the foundation and somewhat of the story line from William Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet. We know that both of the main characters, Luke Skywalker and Young Hamlet, are seeking revenge for the deaths of their fathers. While the bones and foundation may be the same, a large amount of the details are completely different. In Star Wars, Luke didn’t know his father, but in Hamlet, Old Hamlet was Young Hamlet’s role model.
Have you ever had someone who you really liked but could not be with? In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet there is a guy named Romeo and a girl named Juliet. These two come from two families who hate each other but when they meet they fall in love and try to be together. This does not work and they end up dead because they can not be together. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence should be pardoned and Old Capulet and the Nurse should be punished for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths.
Death is a common tragedy used in stories; from B.C. to now, movies, books and even songs are based on death. This may convey the impression of emotions being dark or dreary, but it seems to be a fan favorite, not only among adults, but children. In Hamlet, written by William Shakespeare, the story is based around death, and the same could be said for The Lion King, but it is the audience that separates how deep or complex the story line can be. In the story written by Shakespeare, King Hamlet is not in the story line at all because he was murdered before the story began.
The relationships in the play can be compared to romantic comedy movies. For example, Beatrice and Benedick can be compared to Margaret and Andrew from the movie “The Proposal.” In both scenarios, the characters do not adore each other but in the finale they fall in love and get married. In the play they bring up ideas different for their time and are portrayed differently, similarly to the movie. Shakespeare’s work can still be compared to contemporary movies and
Romeo and Juliet is a play written by William Shakespeare, originally published in 1597. It is a tragedy of two star-crossed lovers, who fall in love with each other despite their families hate. The play is taught in many schools and it is often coupled with a movie adaption of the play. There have been many movie adaptations of Romeo and Juliet done and yet there are only a few out of the five I have watched that I would recommend. The top one that I would recommend is the 1968 version, directed by Franco Zeffirelli.
As Romeo and Juliet meet at the beginning of the play both characters had never felt the love they felt as of that moment. As their love increases they go through a few obstacles in their story but they were willing to make the impossible for them to be together. Sadly there was a point where Juliet “dies” and so Romeo suicides to be with her. After being killed, Juliet wakes up and then finds his love dead minutes before she commits suicide for real. This story finishes in a bad way but made them be finally together forever at some point.
I feel bad for Holden because his brother died and when he wrought the story about his brother baseball mit, Stradlater didn’t like what Holden wrought because his assignment was being descriptive about a house or something like that so holden of course felt a little offended even If Stradlater didn’t know it was about his dead brothers baseball mit. Holden I feel in the book is a weird main character because his adventure wasn’t that special, he drank alcohol on multiple occasions and he was depressed about his life also he was very stressed about
Antigone knows that the king Creon will not allow it her to because he felt as if her brother was a traders for leaving the town and then coming back. Antigone stills buries him even though she knows she may get stoned or killed.“Too late, too late you see the path of wisdom” (line 1270) In the play the chorus says this to creon because he is alone after all his family died and he was the only one left. Respect is a issue they creon and Antigone didn’t follow very much on one hand Antigone was right for burying her brother and on the other hand Creon is right for not allowing her to do it but she still did. The worst part about having power is not being able to control or handle it. To much power eventually cause madness.
The comparison to Gil and Gatsby is that those both were stuck in the past, as Gil wanted to be a writer during the 1920s to experience the effect of the 1920s writer such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gatsby was worried about a love that was very long ago. Gil’s Fiancé Inez who was being played by Rachel McAdams, cheated on the fiancé with her another married man and did not have any sympathy towards the situation. She was also verbally abusive to Gil, saying, “I'd be thinking brain tumor”. As Tom cheated on his wife with a married woman for so long, did not feel any sympathy towards the situation either, and was verbally abusive. She also lost interest in her spouse as for her old college crush.
