ROMEO: I’m Romeo, and I used to be emo and annoying but now I’m so totally in luuuuurve and it’s AWESOME.
MERCUTIO: Okay, three things: One, there’s only room in this play for one awesome character and it’s me, bitch. Two, you’re still emo and annoying. Three, didn’t you say that exact same stuff yesterday about Rosaline?

Two things struck me during this re-reading: 1) From the first scene of the play, the sexual puns are drenched in metaphorical violence (drawing your weapon, laying knife aboard, forcing women to the wall, etc,), creating a stark contrast with the purity of Romeo and Juliet's love and language, and 2)Mercutio, the Nurse and Old Capulet are something totally new both in Shakespeare and also in English drama, that is, characters who are not only realistic but whose language completely reflects the ...more
• fall in love with hot boy/girl (delete as appropriate) that parents can't stand;
• tender words and some sex - gotta find out what that's like;
• major tragic incident that really wasn't your fault, you were provoked;
• everyone's mad at you;
• die beautiful death in loved one's arms;
• parents finally understand how much they cared about you and are sorry they didn't treat you better when you were alive.

I had to read this novel in school – now let me tell you I hated this book with passion in school – BECAUSE I HAD TO! I was quite a rebellion in my time, well nothing changed I am still a rebellion ;-)
Many school kids back in my day didn't appreciate this tragedy because Shakespeare used a lot of bizarre arguments to our ears. I'm delighted to understand it know, but I think main reason is I wanted to understand this novel I felt like I got a sense for his artwork Shakespeare created.

So you're at a nice outdoor cafe one day, eating your lunch, and all of a sudden some fool kids come running through the square with their swords out (apparently they've got some strong Second Amendment advocates in Verona) and insist on skewering each other right there in front of you in the square! And seriously all you want to do is just eat your (damn fine, not that anyone asked you) pasta and get back to work before your lord finds some excuse to fire you. But nooooo, ...more

There have been debates about whether or not Romeo & Juliet is a satire. I'm 101% sure that this is a satirical play in which Shakespeare, the genius bastard, mocked and made fun of hot-headed, foolish teenagers. The man laughed in the face of insta-love (lust), and I laughed along ...more

1. Romeo and Juliet is and reads like an early work of Shakespeare's (whether or not you believe he wrote it), and so the scene executions are occasionally clunky and it lacks the subtly of his later work.
2. Regardless, the story moves you. When two people love one another and are kept from loving one another something must stir within your heart, otherwise you may want to get your heart checked out.
3. The third thing I took away was a questionin ...more

You know, I'm quite certain that if Shakespeare was the "genius" everyone claimed him to be, that Romeo & Juliet has been poorly interpreted. They were two young teenagers that fell "in love" in three days, and resulted in a shitload of deaths for a stupid reason. If Shakespeare was so brilliant, I don't think he'd call that true love or romantic. I think his point was that the families' feud was stupid, and in turn it caused their ...more

It is the east, and Juliet is the sun."

This is the greatest love story of all times. Yes, it happened in less than a month (and there are men that after 10 years of being in a relationship, still aren't ready to get married).
