Romeo And Juliet HELP!!!Watch
HOW DOES SHAKESPEARE PREPARE US FOR THE TRAGIC EVENTS AT THE END OF THE PLAY?
i know it sounds real easy but whenever i ask anyone for help, they just tut and say: Well maybe if you listened in class, you would know what you were doing more often!
And OH MY WORD! I honestly do listen and want to get a good grade in this assignment! here's my paragraphs so far:
Even from the prologue, Shakespeare wants us to know that two star-crossed lovers end up taking their lives due to opposing families and everyone's included opinion on true love.
Romeo and Juliet are defined by Shakespeare himself as "star-crossed lovers" because they are told that they aren't meant to be. And towards the end of the play they start to realise this. they realise that the world doesn't want them to be together and they feel as though the world is also against them.
As for Juliet; her own family are against her when she refuses to marry the County Paris. Juliet has been completely abandoned by all the people she thought she could trust. The tension between Juliet and her parents puts stress on the whole situation she's in. She begins to hate her life. This gives us an idea in our head that she might resort to committing suicide...
Romeo has also gone through some hard times. His best friend gets killed, he kills Tybalt ( a huge member of the Capulet family ) and is then banished from Verona.
That's all I've got so far. My teacher always tells me to follow PEE ( Point, Evidence, Evaluate). If anyone knows any good parts of the script to talk about that would be great! I think there's a good one for Romeo in Act 5 Scene 1. Any help would be much appreciated!!! I am so desperate, like, you have no idea!
thanks to anyone who replies with help! My assessment is due in tomorrow
