Romeo and Juliet Essay

There was action and there was tragedy, but put it all together to make the perfect comedy
and a perfect tragic story. William Shakespeare wrote the play Romeo and Juliet, said to
be the finest written play in history, for its originality and it's many plots. This story
will take you through a lot of mixed emotion and will show you what a true feud is. This
story is laid out perfectly because of its true holding and both family's passion for
their children. William Shakespeare wrote the story to show how Romeo and Juliet's love
for each other will show their youth and immaturity. Their over reacting cost them their
life. At such a young age they thought they could never love another being again, and so,
" A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life."(Act one scene one)

The Capulet's and the Montague were the " Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair
Varona".(Act one scene one) They were what separated Romeo and Juliet for their love for
each other. Due to the fact that the two households were in this feud, Romeo's family
would not allow him to be with Juliet because she was a Capulet, and he was a Montague.
Juliet's family also would not let her be with Romeo because he was a Montague. Romeo and
Juliet get married without the consent of their parent, and without them knowing. The only

you the two doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss a dateless bargain to engrossing
death"(Act five scene three), he drinks the drug as Juliet is waking up, she finds him
dead next to her and kills herself to be with Romeo once again, forever this time.

did not have much experience, in the game of love. Romeo was a little bit older and he
seemed to be going through some type of depression so he could have been jumping the gun
because he wanted to feel love in his life. He said himself " I'll bury the in a
triumphant grave"(Act five scene three), as if Juliet was the only woman who was in the
world, "For here lie's Juliet, and her beauty makes this vault a feasting presence full of
light"( Act five scene three). Immaturity can be figured as not having enough experience,
as Romeo and Juliet were not very educated in the field of love, they went by their
feelings, and their reactions. They did not think very much before they made their
