In William Shakespeare's play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the use of multiple literary devices makes the play interesting. Dramatic irony, which is when the audience knows more than the characters, occurs numerous times throughout the play and grabs the attention of the audience. Soliloquies, which are lengthy speeches by a character to project their thoughts and emotions to the audience, this allows the audience to be more attentive. Allusions are references by characters to well-known places, events from myths or other literature that cause the audience to be absorbed into the play. After reading this marvelous play, it is obvious that Shakespeare uses dramatic irony, allusions, and soliloquies all written in blank verse to grasp the undivided attention of the audience.

The play is taught in many schools and it is often coupled with a movie adaption of the play. There have been many movie adaptations of Romeo and Juliet done and yet there are only a few out of the five I have watched that I would recommend. The top one that I would recommend is the 1968 version, directed by Franco Zeffirelli.
Throughout the entire play, accidental miscommunications lead to miscommunications. But these ‘mistakes’ are actually something greater—they are a manifestation of fate.

When Friar Lawrence sends a letter to a banished Romeo, this fate they share causes the letter to never leave Verona at all. The messenger, Friar John, tells Friar Lawrence that “I could not send it—here it is again— (gives FRIAR LAWRENCE a letter) Nor get a messenger to bring it thee,”(Shakespeare, V.ii.14-16).
