In the first paragraph of my essay will talk about metaphors used by Shakespeare in the play.The second paragraph will be about the coincidences in the play and how they happen and how they relate to fate.The third will be about Shakespeare references to realigion and the fourth from the words said by the corus
Some of the interpretations include
swords to guns
verona city to mexico city
tybalts death from sword fight to car crash
me and samy will look into more detail in the subjects and create a script that include all the information about why we think they changed it and maybe say thing that they could change and some things that they shouldn’t have changed and maybe modifie some interpratations In the film.
I need to select one question and answer it
Write a response of 800-1000 words
Make exstensive reference to the texts, Shakespeare time and use detailed eexamples
my chosen question is how Shakespeare explore the concept of Fate in Romeo and Juliet
In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses a lot of metaphors in his work, he uses a lot of words that you wouldn’t use that have different meanings.In a speech by mercutio he goes on to say “Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,
Which is as thin of substance as the air” ., this means that his head is in the clouds probably saying he is nieve , saying that fantasy is as thin as air is basically saying that you shouldn’t trust your fantasy and stay I the real world because thou won’t do no good up there in your own little world. In this paragraph mercutio is trying to talk sense Into Romeo and trying to snap out of it.
Your task is to identify the metaphor present in the following excerpt and then write a paragraph that explains the metaphor and its effect on the meaning of the passage it is embedded in.
True, I talk of dreams,
Which are the children of an idle brain,
Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,
Which is as thin of substance as the air
And more inconstant than the wind, who wooes
Even now the frozen bosom of the north,
And, being anger’d, puffs away from thence,
Turning his face to the dew-dropping south.
Feel free to watch the presentation again from this lesson to remind you of how to approach a passage that contains a metaphor:
Romeo and Juliet project
I will be doing a analytic essay which will either be a question on fate or interpretations in the play and film
I will also recreate a scene from the play and modernise the language
I will also give a lecture to the class on a chosen subject for about 6-7 minutes also i will get someone to film it and use that for my created piece
“These violent delights have violent ends” this is a quote from the play Romeo and Juliet, this is a key reference on the subject of fate in the play which it is mainly based upon. Fate is revealed in Romeo and Juliet and many ways, but of the most important is through the plot device of co-incidence. Many things in the play happened by co-incidence like how Romeo went to the capulet party, he went there to meet rosiline but not to full in love with Juliet, it was just by co-incidence that they met and fell in love that night.
There are many quotations of fate in the play, even from the very beginning, the prologue said ” from forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star crossed lovers take there life who’s misadventures piteous overthrows.”but this is not fate in the actual play the characters themselves say to each that there lives are hanging in the stars which is basically saying god has control of my life I have no control and whatever’s happens I can not change my path.
This was just before the capulet party Romeo wants to go to the party to see rosiline but cmeets Juliet instead, I think that he thought that was his fate to meet Juliet I don’t think he knew at this point both were going to die. They lead on to full in love and later get married.this is where friar Lawrence said to both Romeo and Juliet “Romeo come forth , thou fearful man-affliction is enamour’d of thy parts, and thou art wedded to calamity” it his is before Romeo and Juliet kill themselves and even before Romeo gets banished from Verona so saying this is definitely evidence of fate. What the friar is saying is that e your marriage is destined for doom you may love each other but no matter what you do your fate has been sealed. I think this is a very good piece of evidence of determining fate in the play because its not one of the characters talking to themselves about how there’s nothing they can do to stop it whereas in this case it’s soming talking to Romeo and Juliet that they are going to die and are wed’d to calamity.
a fight breaks out between the montagues and capulets. Paris ask capulet for permission to marry Juliet
Romeo goes to the capulet party to go and see Rosiline Juliet has an argument with her mum about getting married to Paris
the capulet party starts and mercrutio try’s to get Romeo to play along and have fun.
Romeo meets Juliet for the first time
