Romeo and Juliet The tragic story that unfolds in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is known all over the world. Although Shakespeare was not a teenager when he wrote the story, he seems to have a good understanding of the adolescent brain, and how it is constantly growing and developing. Nowadays, there are many studies that have been done to find out how the teenage brain works, but Romeo and Juliet shows that Shakespeare was ahead of his time in his knowledge of how teenagers think and act.
“Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare entertains the audience through use of character, language and drama. The plot focuses on the theme of conflict and consequences, using deep characterisation, descriptive language and high drama to entertain. Act 3 Scene 1 focuses on a brutal feud between two enemies and Act 3 Scene 5 follows the patriarchal society’s approach to women marriage and societal expectations. Shakespeare forces the audience to engage with the idea of conflict and what it must have been like to live through this time. Shakespeare cleverly utilises a changing atmosphere in Act 3 Scene 1 to expertly entertain his audience.
In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, there are many aspects of the play which are linked to the teenage brain and how it functions. The teenage brain does not work the same as it does in adults and therefore helps the plot of the play move along quickly. Many of the parts that function in the adolescent brain can be seen in almost every decision that Romeo and Juliet make. Many studies have been created to take a look at how the adolescent brain works. There are some key elements to the brain of adolescents that show why most teens make these impulsive and adventurous decisions.
For a long time, people have thought that rigid guidelines will be beneficial for a child because it helps shape them into their best self. Now, professionals are saying that unrealistic standards can have a negative effect on one’s child, instead of a positive effect. Throughout time, parental expectations have remained too intense, which result in detrimental effects on their child according to Romeo and Juliet, Shattering Glass, and modern day research. The parental standards in Romeo and Juliet are overly stressful for Romeo and Juliet to handle, causing the teenagers to suffer in various ways that lead up to their death at the end of the play.
Without a doubt the feuds and love so deeply involved in this story lead to a direct result of violence. So much violence, and so much death could not be stopped in The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, and it may truly lead one to wonder why this outcome could not have been
The theme of love is often associated with peace and kindness. However, in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers’ suicidal impulse shows love as a cause of self-destructive violence, as seen through their thoughts, words and actions. Firstly, Romeo and Juliet’s suicidal thoughts reveal the violence caused by their love. In other words, it is their intense passion for each other that leads to their contemplation of suicide. For instance, when Romeo is told of Juliet’s supposed death, he immediately thinks of killing himself and begins to plan his suicide, as demonstrated by the following quote: “Well, Juliet, I will lie with thee tonight.
It’s no secret that young people are not very rational. They rush into things and often don’t consider the consequences of their actions. This isn’t their fault. It’s just their lack of experience in life. There are many examples of this in literature and television.
Teenage rebellion in Romeo and Juliet Almost everyone in the world wants to someday have children. Children are cute and people want to start a family. The idea of kids sounds great until you think of one thing, dealing with the teenage years. The teenage years are when the sweet, little child turns into the stubborn, little teenager who doesn’t listen, argues with everything and tries to do whatever they want, whenever they want. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, the two main characters and their friends are just those teenagers who in many ways, show characteristics of being the most rebellious teenagers around.
Four hundred thousand deaths, six hundred thousand attempts, and two hundred thousand considerations in a single year. The seeming epidemic that is teen suicide plagues the minds of teachers, students, friends, neighbors, and parents. Despite this wide range of victims, teenage suicide most directly affects the parents of these children, who commonly feel an overwhelming sense of guilt due to their inability to help their children. However, to many it appears obvious that there are not many things parents can do to prevent suicide, for many reasons. Furthermore, William Shakespeare proves this with his tragedy “Romeo and Juliet” in which two teenagers take their lives.
Once upon a time there was a boy named Romeo and a girl named Juliet who lived separately but loved each other dearly. This story is about a boy and a girl whom their families hated each other deeply and they were enemies because they would always fight with each other. In order, we watched a movie about Romeo and Juliet version of 1968 introduced many issues relating to the feud between families and the actions/decisions of Romeo and Juliet. We have been reading an essay by Lois Kerschen about Romeo and Juliet and it is about people’s thoughts on who to blame. Also, we have been reading about teen brain pamphlet from NIMH and it is about how the teenage brain works.
The majority of people regard adolescence as a tumultuous time, so it comes as no surprise that it is the focus of many literary works. Few, however, match the grandness of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. In the timeless tale, two “star-crossed lovers” meet their demise. Undoubtedly, their actions are lamentable, but fault lies on more sources than solely them. Romeo and Juliet cannot be entirely blamed for their love’s outcome because of rampant emotions, neglectful parents, and an increased enticement in harmful activities.
The Maturities of Romeo and Juliet It is a controversial topic whether youth is capable of handling a mature love. Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare by 1595, epitomizes this common topic. The main characters of the play are two teenagers who fall in love at the first sight, however, the hatred between the families of the two leads to their death in the end. In the adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet in 1996, Romeo and Juliet are portrayed more mature than in that of Baz Luhrmann in 1968.
