Tony Kushner includes a variety of different topic in his play “Angels in America” that I wouldn’t necessarily think would go together in one play. He uses religion, politics and sexuality to build up on each other and make the performance more effective and powerful while reading his script. Sexuality is integrated through Prior Walter and his homosexuality towards Louis but also when he would work at the club. I can see how this would be frowned upon in the late 1900s since it has not progressed much up to today. Sure it is much more acceptable but still there is going to be people that are against this type of behavior.
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is a poem about love v. lust, the role of fate, the role of women, love vs. hate, and the manipulation of time. Minister Lawrence assumes a noteworthy part, he is a minister/priest who is a nearby friend of both Romeo and Juliet, he is to Blame in Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, as an individual from the Order of St. Francis, a gathering of savvy and liberal ministers, Romeo and Juliet trusted Friar Laurence totally, swinging to him for exhortation, and arrangements.

Thomas Foster claims that in most cases, the values of a writer’s dominant religion will in some way impact the literature they write (118). Many readers have found that when they returned to Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, the Christian undertones were much more recognizable, and for some that was a negative experience. “There’s nothing like a flaming sword to separate you from something…in this case that something is former innocence” (Foster 50).
In the love story of Romeo and Juliet, main character Juliet stars out at naive, but becomes more mature and defiant as her character progresses throughout the main plot of the story. Juliet’s character is naive in the beginning of the story. One way we see this is Lord Capulet’s thoughts of her. “She hath not seen the change of fourteen years; Let two more summers wither her in pride ere we may think her ripe to be a bride.” ( Act 1.

Nature has so many opposites. For example, the earth is where nature grows and is born as well as where it dies. These opposites and contradictions represent the relationship of Romeo and Juliet. They were born in the same city, “fair verona”, however in opposing, hostile families. Just like how two plants may be planted in the same park, however in two separate gardens.
Romeo and Juliet: A Renaissance Novel Romeo and Juliet belongs in the Renaissance movement due to its examples of individuals being different from their groups, rediscovery of the classical, and individuals deciding for themselves. One example of an individual being different from their group is seen when the nurse, Juliet, and Lady Capulet are speaking to each other in Act 1, scene 3. In this scene Lady Capulet has a difficult time silencing the nurse 's pointless talk while Juliet silences her with a single sentence. This shows that Juliet is not the same as her group because she easily shows her superiority over the nurse while Lady Capulet cannot. In the Renaissance Era women typically were seen as weak.
“If you’re walking through Hell, keep walking.” Winston Churchill explained. Every beginning has an ending, and every ending has a new beginning. Tomorrow is a new beginning, and rather than rejecting the life you never wanted, we need to have the courage to walk through the pain and complications. In both Romeo and Juliet and the book Sons of Grace by Mark Hughes, the characters learn to embrace the life they never wanted.
Narrative “Movies are a combination of art and science” (Syd Field, 2005, page2) without the correct science behind art, art is just an idea.
