Shakespeare infers that emotional maturity is linked to sexual maturity, and that marriage is a big step that marks a transition into adulthood. Juliet becomes a woman in the eyes of society the night before Act 3 Scene 5, and uses this empowerment in her fight against her mother. Juliet breaks that bond whilst expertly spins double entendres, saying what her mother wants to hear but also saying the exact opposite. She says she will “never be satisfied” until she sees “him - dead - “is (her) poor heart for a kinsman vexed” and this could be taken in two different ways, either she wants to see Romeo dead, or she is sad for Tybalt. Once her father comes in, Juliet attempts to also sever the bond, although he manages to do it all himself, threatening “for my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee” if she does not end up marrying Paris.
Romeo and Juliet, what a vile love story, that leads to the death of four main characters in a play that only lasted seven days. Romeo, Tybalt, and Paris all loved Juliet to the heart but Juliet knew which one was more important and which one could fade. They each had a different kind of love towards Juliet, but we find out whose love was here to stay as the others passed away. During the entire seven days, this story went down, many events happened to make Romeo (Juliet worst family enemy) to her husband, with the help of there trusty adult friends Friar Lawrence and the Nurse to help them make their choices; which sometimes isn't really the best choice for that scenario. Romeo was the first character to express his kind of love for

Blanche’s desires had led her down paths of bad sexual relation and alcoholism, and by making contact with the Kowalski; she had crossed the limit. Blanche’s desire to escape made her to isolate from the world around her. By the end of the play, Blanche could no longer distinguish between fantasy and reality.

42nd Street vs. Gold Diggers of 1933 42nd Street directed by Lloyd Bacon (1933) and Gold Diggers of 1933 directed by Mervyn LeRoy (1933) are both musicals that deal with putting on a show during the depression while also dealing with personal relationships with not only lovers but fellow actors and friends as well. While these two movie musicals do have things in common, such as cinematography, plot lines, and editing, they also have differences. 42nd Street stars Peggy, a young girl fresh on Broadway.

Blanche’s Monologue The passage cited from “A Streetcar Named Desire” reveals the uncommon aspects of her character: the ideal notion of love and seething desire within herself, sexual struggle and conflict, pretentiousness of the ‘grand’ lady and the financially strained woman. It seems like Blanche’ ranting toward Stella but it actually likes Blanche talks to herself.
A streetcar named desire was written by Tennessee Williams in 1947, in purpose to show the “declining of the upper class and the domination of the bourgeois middle class in the U.S.A. where the south agriculture class could not compete with the industrialization.” Blanche Dubois the protagonist of our story, a southern beauty that is trapped by the restrictive laws of her society.

While staying there, she created a façade for her to hide her flaws and kept acting as a lady, where she is anything but that.
Identity conjures up an image of self-regard statically set in the beholder’s environment. However, identity is an active interplay between self-regard and the environment. This interplay takes center stage in Tennessee Williams’ 1947 A Streetcar Named Desire, as Blanche Dubois moves in with her sister Stella and brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski in New Orleans. Upon her arrival, Blanche and her grandiose air offend Stanley.
The solution was to do a similar idea to another show of a typical Sondheim twist, presented in shows such as A Little Night Music and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum: the characters’ storylines would eventually intertwine. A major difference between Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and the other two musicals is the ending is full of ironies. For example, Sweeney Todd kills Judge Turpin for killing his wife. In reality, right before Todd kills Turpin, Todd kills the beggar wife, who find out was his wife Lucy.
A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams exhibits the worst of human nature. Stanley, the antagonist, best exemplifies the terrible qualities of humans.
