Romeo and Juliet, is a love story that was interfered by hate. The Capulets and Montagues were bitter enemies. However, the son and daughter from the patriarchies of both families did not hate each other, but instead fell in love. They decided to keep their love a secret because Juliet would be disowned if she didn’t marry a handpicked man from Lord Capulet. The rivalry and disgust between the two families was responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet because it made them lie.
Romeo and Juliet essay In William Shakespeare 's, “Romeo and Juliet” two star-crossed lovers, both apart of opposing families, sought for true love which ends in calamitous deaths. Many are to blame for their deaths, but the one’s who should be ashamed of themselves and who are the most guilty are the Capulets.

The Capulets only wanted what would benefit them, not their daughter.
Romance comes in all different forms and sizes, and Calbert understands that along with these she apprends why people fall in and out of love. Falling in love has a sense of vulnerability that requires taking risks that people are “willing to fail, / why we will still let ourselves fall in love,” in order to sustain real love. Calbert ends her poem with listing the romances with her husband and vows, “knowing nothing other than [their] love” because that is all that matters to her
William Shakespeare once wrote, “It is not in the stars to hold people’s destiny but in themselves.” Despite the depth of an ancient family feud, Romeo and Juliet pursued their love together, considered by some to be infatuated, even when given many obstacles to overcome.

The people who committed the sin of bodily passion are put here. Francesca da Rimini is a married woman who had an affair with her husband’s brother when she was on earth; this is again a classic story of courtly love. Even though Dante the narrator shows sympathy towards their story, clearly Dante the poet doesn’t share the same feelings because he puts them in Hell. As we can see courtly love is not always considered to be romantic or, in the eyes of God, acceptable. In Canto V, we are given a lot of examples of what happened to those who loved or surrendered to their earthly and bodily cravings: Semiramis whose “vice of lust became so customary that she made license licit in her laws to free her from the scandal she had caused”, that other spirit who “killed herself for love and betrayed the ashes of Sycheaus”, Cleopatra who is a “wanton”, Helen “for whose sake so many years of evil had
Many have said that the greatest love stories of all time arose from this period of enlightenment and rebirth. Of course, some argue that the true theme of these famous works are not love at all, but are in fact poems of lust. The distinction between love and lust can be made through the examination of the poems Valediction: Forbidding Mourning, To His Coy Mistress, and To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time. Valediction: Forbidding Mourning is a poem concerning the true nature of love. A woman is upset because her husband has to go on a journey.
The song Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers describes the part of Act 1 Scene 1 where Romeo and Benvolio are talking about Romeo’s love for Rosaline. This song goes well with this scene because it is about the sadness and emptiness that a person feels when they love someone but they are not loved back. In this scene, Romeo is wallowing about how in love he is with Rosaline, but she doesn’t love him back. “Out of her favour where I am in love.” (1.1.163) Rosaline is never available for Romeo to win her heart. In the song Ain’t No Sunshine, Bill Withers sings about how the person he loves is the sunlight in his life, but when she’s not there, he is cold and depressed.
In a literary article,The Role of Women in Othello: A Feminist Reading states that,” Society weighs heavily on the shoulders of women; they feel that they must support the men and defer to them, even if the actions of the men are questionable” (Literary Articles). Although Emilia does not ever say these powerful words out loud, she is still willing to not follow her husbands commands despite his strong character. Emilia proves again that she has powerful thoughts when she stated that,”Let husbands know, Their wives have sense like them; they see and smell, And have their palates both for sweet and sour As husbands have’ (Othello IV.3.92-5) Emilia contends that women are physically the same to men,they both get distraught and have issues that trouble each other, they should treat each other similarly. Women can still analyze literature about the inequality and rights for women through many of the injustices that are modern today.
