Contemporary literary prizes are institutions that celebrate literary achievements, shape authors’ positions with respect to the market and the canon, form the worldwide readership. They frequently cause controversies, be it the list of nominees, the names of jury members, or, eventually, the winning authors or books. Among all literary prizes, the Nobel Prize in Literature is, probably, the most famous and controversial, because, “unlike the Booker or the Goncourt, [it] explicitly highlights and rewards the author rather than an individual literary work” (Braun 321). Since the Nobel Committee decided to award authors not only for the last year’s works, but for their writings in a wider period, the figure of the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, became “the guarantor of literature as it is mediated to an international public” (Braun 324). Literary prizes are important parts of literary systems, which can be defined as structures that describe the mode of interaction between authors, readers and markets.

Shakespeare uses third person point of view, similar to "Pyramus and Thisbe." The prolouge of "Romeo and Juliet" states "The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love" and "Pyramus and Thisbe" states "They made their decision." This shows both stories use the same point of view and proves Shakespeare transforms the themes of Ovid’s tale “Pyramus and Thisbe” into the opening of the play "Romeo and Juliet". As in Ovid's story of Pyramus and Thisbe, Shakespeare explored the old conflicts that arise when he uses words such as blood, rage and death. These two stories share several similarities, such as romance, tragedy, and death.
Clearly the idea of identity in Romeo and Juliet contributes to a great conflict within the famous play. Each family were in a different social class and Juliet's gender played a major role in the idea of Independence and privacy against her her own family! Juliet only being 13 or 14 was a major contributing factor to the theme of identity as a young female in the Middle Ages such a play would have been absolutely shocking during shakespeare's era because of her outright disownment of her wealthy family for a lover of a lower social class. We see this in other literature and movies such as mixed races where individuals have fallen in love with each other families disown each other because of societal pressure and societal norms of racism and discrimination. This play, Romeo and Juliet touches upon those societal problems that are timeless especially with individuals wanting to fall in love with a lower social class or an individual that is from a different wealth class.
