    Romeo and Juliet

    Most people have heard of Romeo and Juliet. What do you think about it? I found it dumb. It all took place in less than 4 days. What is wrong with people?! What if she hated him later. She can't get a divorce. It was rushed. Was it rushed to you?

    All is calm in this eternal sleep; here grief forgets to groan and love to weep.”

    well, the play was written a long time ago
    it's basically the archetype of all that "love in first sight" stuff
    heh, maybe it seems rushed because William Shakespeare had to keep it short
    don't want it to be too long or else his audience would get too bored for it being too dragged out
    I love my girlfriend.

    Re: Romeo and Juliet

    Umm, sorry to say Innerhell, but you got it backwards. Romeo drank poison 'cuz he thought Juliet was dead (which she wasn't,) and Juliet stabbed herself 'cuz Romeo killed himself. Hence the reason for the line by Juliet "What noise? Then I'll be brief. Oh happy dagger, here is thy sheath. There rust, and let me die"*plunges dagger in heart.* Sorry dude - I'm an R&J freak!!

    Re: Romeo and Juliet

    You found it "dumb"?

    Well, here's the reason. You're trying to interpret a play based in a medieval time period with modern culture. Divorce was not even conceptualized yet. Hell, back then, women were still considered PROPERTY.

    The characters of Romeo and Juliet are supposed to be 16-18, in age range. Look at some of the couples in your high schools TODAY (or hell, I saw one today on THIS frickin' message board) that THINK they love each other and will always be together, always in love.

    No, this play makes perfect sense.

    Also, part of what drew them together was the fact is that they were forbidden to be together because of their feuding families. Being rebellious kids, they were naturally attracted to each other.

    This was NOT two mature and wise adults. The story is actually more of a tale of yearning and adoration than love.

    lol, that's cool
    well, English literature isn't my expertise lol
    I haven't read Romeo & Juliet in years
    haven't even seen any of the movies for a long time
    so my memory is a bit fuzzy
    my head is filled with random facts about video games, anime, and music
    woo...
    thank the gods for people like you
    I love my girlfriend.
