Engale cross road

Mister beckenbauer was walking home one night, he had a few at the old round house and was very drunk. He was walking home, or at least trying to, he eventually came to Engale cross road where he saw a strange figure. The strange figure looked as if he waved so mister Beckenbauer waved back. The strange figure seemed as if it was getting closer to mister beckenbauer just stayed still, he was in a state of shock and he couldn’t move. It seemed like someone was holding him and every time he moved the grip got tighter. The strange figure was getting closer and mr beckenbauer was now frightened he screamed but no one heard. Mister beckenbauer passed out, and the Next day he woke up in a hospital bed with loads of pipes coming out of him. He stared at the ceiling for about five minuets, and that was the last thing mister beckenbauer saw.

Detective sherman was the last man to see mister beckenbauer alive, as with all of his cases he took it to the heart, he cried at his bedside until a doctor came in. Detective sherman stood up took a tissue out of his pocket and dried his eyes. He said “so, whats the deal doc” in a croaky voice. “Stabbed” the doctor said, “always, always a stabbing” “shame apparently he was here on a holiday from berlin, just trying to have fun” detective Sherman looked at mr beckenbauer lifeless body, “well now I have to inform his family.” “Oh detective, I have something else to show you” “go ahead” “well as you know there have been severale cases now and as you also know they’ve all been on engage road” “your point” now detective Sherman had a confused look on his face. “There’s something else, all of the bodies I have examined have the same scar, it looks like a cross and its always on the back of there necks, at first I over looked it maybe just a coincidence, maybe this could be a lead.” Detective shermans face stayed still he was silent andshowed no emotion ” I’ll be off then” said the doctor, detective Sherman said nothing. When the doctor left detective Sherman went to mr beckenbuaers body and lifted his head, he was cold, he checked behind his neck and just like the doctor said a scar shaped like a cross.

Detective sherman and face dropped, after about a Minuit or so a thought came into his head. By what he has gone of and all the clues that have been given to this murder case there’s always something different not the way that they were killed but the nationality of the victims. There have been black, Asian, and Eastern European people being killed by this strange figure. So detective Sherman grabbed his coat and headed to engale cross road. It was raining, he pulled of his car and got out. He looks around the road was silent, he took a second look and then he saw a strange figure. The figure just stood there, detective Sherman tried to walk to it but it kept getting further. The rain was really heavy now and you could barley see where you were going detective Sherman lost sight of the figure. He stopped and put his head down and looked at the floor. When he put his head back up he could not move. A tight grip got hold of him and now several strange figures were surrounding him. In unison they all said “why are you here detective” the detective replied “to stop you” “well detective you have failed” “no you may have stopped me but everyone will fight against young matter what” then figures said “let them come there fait will be the same as yours.” “You only kill people from other country’s why” “they are a waste of space” “I’m sure they bleed the same blood as you” ” no not any more” “what” “they may have once but I have taken over” “this doesn’t make sense” said detective Sherman. “We are not people any more” “but you kill people” “we don’t consider them people” “you say them as they aren’t people just remember you we’re people and what you have done can never be forgiven.” “We cannot be stopped” “people will fight back and eventually you will fall” never” “just remember now, that you have not been taken over by a unknown force now you murdering someone from this country” detective Sherman blacked out.

He awoke in a hospital bed with tubes sticking in him, he stared at the ceiling for about 5 minuets. By his bedside was a young police officer, crying, Sherman looked at him he said “engale cross road, stop then” then he flat lined. The police man stood up dried his face got his coat and headed out.

How does Shakespeare explore the concept of fate in Romeo and Juliet

Fate, in the play Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses this style a lt, through out the play there are loads of hints and speeches about fate and what is going to happen later on in the play. There are certain methods he uses to to incorporate fate into his writing, the way he made characters speak in the play helps a lot because one of his main methods for using fate are metaphors.

In the play Shakespeare uses metaphors consistently, he would construct a sentence using words that have different meanings to what he wrote, that is what a metaphor is. For example a in speech said by mercutio a chraracter in the play goes on to say “Begot of nothing but vain fantasy,Which is as thin of substance as the air” ., this means that in romeos 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 you 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. But Shakespeare also uses a lot of metaphors to relate to fate. Early in the play Romeo says a very famous speech, this speech is packed with metaphors but there is one line in this speech that I would like to pick up on “some yet consequence hanging in the stars” . This means that Romeos fate is not in his own hands, and that there is nothing he can do to stop it. But in this case Romeo does not know if his fate is bad or if it is good. This metaphor is also a reference, a reference to God.

” Some consequence left hanging in the stars” like I said before this means Romeo has no control of his fate. So if Romeo has no control who does, well another thing that Shakespeare likes to use in his writing are references. In the play Romeo and Juliet he especially uses references to religion, because many people were very religious back then it was very believable to use this type reference. When Romeo says left hanging in the stars he is referring to God, of course you know this because there is no one that he could be referring to. There are a lot of examples of  this in the play but the most that stands out is ” but he hath the steerage of my corse direct my sailor lusty gentleman” this is a very good example of references to God because it is his Life he is actually talking to him saying direct my sail oh lusty gentlemen. In this quote Romeo says that his life is like a ship and that God is controlling it and for him to hurry up and just give him his destiny. I find it very interesting how Shakespeare lets his characters basically know what is going to happen to them. But at the very start of the whole show not the play the words of the chorus tell you what is going to happen and he delivers the climax before the play even starts

“Two households, both alike in dignity in fair Verona where we lay our scene from ancient grudge break to new mutiny where civil blood makes civil hands unclean from forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star crossed lovers take their life whose misadventur’d piteous overthrows doth with their death bury their parents strife the fearful passage of their death mark’d love and the continuance of their parents rage which  but their children’s end nought could remove is now the two hours traffic of our stage the which if you with patient ears attend what here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend” these are the words said by the chorus at the start of the show, he said this in the prologue. Shakespeare gives many hints through out but in the prologue he actually tells you what happens and delivers the climax. this is interesting and another style of writing shakespeare uses. The chorus isn’t a character in the play and unlike the characters he does not hint about future he just says what is going to happen and Shakespeare uses this for the audience to I watch it to the end and find out how they manage to kill themselves how they fall in love and why the families hate eachother. This works because in the speech by the chorus you could say he leaves a lot of questions unanswered. But in the play fate works in a lot of ways, it’s not just the characters talking about there fate another thing that happens through out the play are co-incidences.

In the play Romeo and Juliet co-incidences happen many times and like said before its controlled by God. The co-incidences that happen are unusual because when they happen it leads to a series of what you could call bad events. Like for instince when the invitations for the capulet party were getting given out by the serviceman it just so happens that he could not read and when he asked someone if they could read it, it was Romeo who he came across. Romero read it and saw the guests list and Rosiline was on it, Rosiline was a girl that Romeo thought he was in love with but could not be with because she had chose to be celibate, and when his friends saw this they said that he should go and see her. Romeo did go to the party but did not see Rosiline but instead he fell in love with Juliet and Juliet fell in love with Romeo. In a matter of days they found out they could not be together so they ended up committing a double suicide. It was by co-incidence that the service man could not read and the man that could read it was Romeo. Fate works in very strange ways in the play Romeo and Juliet but it looks like the main way Shakespeare does explore fate in the play is a mixture of methods some more out there than others .

How does Shakespeare explore the concept of fate in Romeo and Juliet? Well he uses many  methods some of the best are all of the above. But the way I think he explores it is by set fate like by using a deity. I think in religion is the main way he explores fate this is because all of the other methods he uses are somewhat linked to his method of using religion to explore fate. Also I think Shakespeare is very smart in how he keeps you interested. First he tells you what’s going to happen but not how it happens by using dramatic irony. Dramatic irony is when the audience knows something in the play that the characters do not know. He uses this consistently when the characters speak for example the words said by the chorus tells you that there going to die so the audience knows something but not the hole story. So I conclude this essay on how I think Shakespeare explores the concept of fate, he uses a mixture and a good mixture of dramatic irony and references to religion to make the concept of fate in the play Romeo and Juliet.

Metaphor by Shakespeare 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.

Metaphor in Romeo and Juliet

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:
