Romeo that Shakespeare uses shows the whole point
Romeo and Juliet is one of the most romantic plays ever written by Shakespeare and even one of the most prestigious in the world, inspiring many remakes of the play even in the 21st century. Shakespeare portrays love in very different ways throughout the play Shakespeare portrays love in very different ways throughout the play and this is what keeps us on our toes. For example, at the beginning of the play, there is a sonnet that is sometimes said by the chorus that outlines the whole of the play for the audience and in it one of the lines that Shakespeare uses shows the whole point of the play: ‘From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life: Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife.’. This means, from the genitals of these two enemies – Capulet’s and the Montague’s – a pair of lovers (Romeo and Juliet) take their lives, which is exactly what happens at the end of the play and with their death they bury their parents conflict This sonnet is one way that Shakespeare show the love and hate and it shows that Romeo and Juliet’s love was above the hate for each other’s family and that they’d go to great lengths to be together.Additionally, in the prologue there is the fight between the 2 servants of the house of Capulet against some Montague foes and this shows the severity of the dispute between the two families since the first proper scene in the play is 4 me battling each other to kill in the name of their beloved houses.
This gives the audience a clear insight of whaat is going on in Verona.
